On April 15, 1999 Pamela had her leaking breast implants removed. Later after recovering without
them, it was more than obvious that she had reconsidered implants and had them reinserted. Her chest had returned
to its huge size.
Later, Pamela gave her former husband yet another chance in 1999, but it didn't
work out. This had became a regular event. However in 2000, this was the last time that she would split
with her former husband. She could now see outside of the box and had to move on in April 2000. During that time Pamela
had met Swedish model Markus Schenkenberg in late spring and it was reported that she was engaged to him for a short
time before deciding that the relationship did not work out in early 2001.
In June 2000, it was confirmed that she had dropped Lee from her name (Thank goodness! Fans were
cramming my in-box with e-mail). She began to date and her interest finally settled on rocker Robert Ritchie (Kid
Rock) in April 2001. He had a background and problems of his own. Again, the tabloids sought Pamela out because
of her romantic involvement with another rocker. The media even invented the story that the couple was expecting
a child. Pamela denied the rumor. The couple got engaged on April 11, 2002 in Las Vegas.
While facing a child custody battle with her former husband over their
two sons, the actress had announced that she had Hepatitus C and got it by sharing
a needle with her former husband Tommy Lee. The needle was used to make the barbwire tatoo rings on her left arm. Pamela didn't
know that she had the disease until she was examined by her doctor. She has had to ask herself what if she wasn't
around anymore. Stressing that her priority was her two sons, Pamela has placed her acting career on hold to undergo
powerful outpatient drug treatment for the disease at the University of California, Los Angeles Medical Center March
20, 2002. She had shied away from the drug treatment and although she wouldn't rule out using interferon, the
drug that many hepatitis patients use to battle the virus, and opted to try natural treatments for the disease
first to see how they work. She stated that she was trying to start a new family with Robert Ritchie and his son, Robert
Pamela had a serious scare when an obsessive fan, Christine Roth was found sleeping
in her Malibu home on March 6, 2001. The woman had peaded guilty to breaking and entering into Pamela's home. She was
sentenced to be returned to her native France for counseling.
Pamela expanded her career by branching out into the journalistic field. She had a regular
column with JANE magazine in 2002 called Pam, Honestly, and still writes for the magazine
occassionally. She has appeared on the sensational March 2003 FHM cover with 8 other popular Baywatch
ladies for the reunion movie Baywatch: Hawaii Wedding, which aired in February 2003. She appeared
in the popular Scary Movie 3 (2003), which is now out on DVD & VHS and provides the voice and image
for Stripperella/Spike TV (2003), the animated Sci-Fi TV series. In August 2003, Pamela appeared on the cover of
JANE magazine and settled the stories and rumors that were made up and written by the tabloids. She has launched
her new weekly radio talk show, Club Pam in 2003 (Sirius Satelite Radio).
Current projects include the first of two novels, Star (released August 2004/Atria
Books) and her own complete merchandise and clothing line called The Pamela Collection (launched August
Recently, the animal rights activist had joined People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), other celebrities
and organizations and had called a strike nationwide against the Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) fast food
chain for its treatment of the chickens it sells until the company ensures guidelines for better treatment of the creatures. It
has been reported that Pamela has tried in vain to meet with Yum! Brands Chief Executive David Novack.
Yum! Brands is the parent company of KFC. He refused to take her calls. Pamela had called a strike against KFC on her
weekly radio show.
Pamela had reconsiled with her former husband. The weekend of March 27-28, 2004, at the 15th Anniverary celebration
for the Animal Rights Foundation of Florida, she was with her former husband. All eyes noted that the two looked
extremely chummy and asked themselves if they were back together. Eyewitnesses reported that they even held hands while the
actress made last minute revisions to her speech and looked like they were a lot more than friends while they ate their teriyaki
Although Pamela had been ultra busy with projects and attending many charity fundraisers, the hardships US gymnast
Mohini "Mo" Bhardwaj had reached her ears. Mo had problems with juggling training full-time and working to support
herself. She had been cooking and selling pizzas to make ends meet. Pamela set up a meeting with her and asked Mo how
much she needed. Pamela wrote out a check for $20,000 and would provide anything else to help her go after her dream.
The funds eased Mo's burden and Pamela was in the stands cheering her on and offering support at the U.S.Olympic Gymnastics
Trials. Mo made the squad. Surviving the tough training at the Karolyi camp, Program Cordinator Marta
Karolyi picked her as one of the final six to represent the US. Pamela's help paid off in Athens as well.
Mo was solid throughout, usually leading off to help the US team garner 113.584 to take the team silver behind the consistant
Romainians (114.283). Russia salvaged the bronze with 113.235. Mohini also qualified for event finals on floor with a near
