Pamela Anderson and Paris Hilton Together

Kevin at Wizbang has a super-size photo of Pam Anderson and Paris Hilton, who are apparently fast friends.

Hello magazine offers this synopsis:

It was a gals’ day out when Paris Hilton and Pamela Anderson hit the town for a bit of Christmas shopping, turning heads as they made the rounds of stores in Malibu.

Casually hip in a long blue skirt and pink beanie hat with matching gloves, Paris was laughing it up during the expedition with her friend Pamela, who opted for a grey mini and scarlet arm bands.

The 23-year-old Hilton heiress was out on the prowl looking to add a kitten to her growing collection of pets, which already includes a ferret and two dogs. The blonde bombshells, who were loaded down with bags filled with Christmas cheer, were accompanied by Paris’ boyfriend David Lachapelle and her younger sister Nicky.

Both Paris and Pamela have plenty to be pleased with this holiday season. While the third season of Paris’ hit reality show The Simple Life premieres in late January on Fox, the network has also just announced that Pam is returning to television next year in a new comedy about a woman who’s trying to change her life and break her habit of falling for less-than-responsible men.

Poker fans would ante up to play against Pam Anderson

Pamela Anderson wins with a full house. In an online survey conducted by EmpirePoker.com, 42 percent of the Web site’s VIPs selected model-actress Anderson as the celebrity they would most like to play against. “Our players clearly think Pamela Anderson isn’t too bright or maybe they just want to ogle her,” said Ron Burke, EmpirePoker.com’s marketing manager.

I’m guessing they misunderstood. They were thinking “I’d sure like to poke her.”

Pam Anderson, the Most Surprising Best-Selling Author

Baywatch bombshell Pamela Anderson has made it to Movieline’s Hollywood Life’s Most List, for being the Most Surprising Best-Selling Author, for her memoirs ‘Star’. Hollywood actors Johnny Depp, Jude Law, and Jamie Foxx also figure in the list, according to Femalefirst.

PAM’S SEX ENCOUNTER WITH HEFNER

PAMELA ANDERSON once walked in on PLAYBOY boss HUGH HEFNER when he was having sex with one of his Playmates. The ageing magazine chief has always been keen to play down reports he sleeps with the bevy of blondes who live with him at his Los Angeles mansion – but Anderson caught him in the act. She tells men’s magazine ESQUIRE, “We were swimming in the grotto, and I decided to walk around the house a bit. “I ran into one of the girls and she’s like, ‘Come upstairs.’ So I went upstairs, and there’s Hef on the bed. There’s baby oil, there’s toys flying every which way, there’s all these girls naked. It was like watching a movie.”

A really, really bad movie that makes you want to stab your eyes out.

Pam Anderson heads anti-fur drive

Former Baywatch babe Pamela Anderson will spearhead an anti-fur campaign in China, appearing naked on billboards in Beijing and Shanghai, animal rights group PETA said on Wednesday. Anderson, a longtime fur foe, appears nude from the waist up covered only by her strategically placed arms next to the tagline ‘Give Fur the Cold Shoulder’. “I’m perfectly happy to bare my skin if it will help save animals skins,” said Anderson.

I’m perfectly happy for her to bare her skin, too. And she’s been fur-free for as long as I can remember.

Get ready to see Paris Hilton̢۪s panties

Pretty soon, people around the world may be able to see Paris’ underpants. Paris Hilton and her lesser-photographed sister, Nicky, are in negotiations to become the “faces” of Antz Pantz — a line of lingerie. Antz Pantz is currently available in Australia and New Zealand — though one insider says that this is “probably” a sign that the company wants to expand. The company is known for its outrageous ad campaigns, and a source says that if the Hilton sisters are signed up, there will be “more outrageousness.”

Paris Hilton’s rep didn’t have any comment, but as a report in the Melbourne Herald Sun put it, the deal would give the flesh-flashing Paris Hilton a chance to prove to skeptics that she “does wear knickers after all.”

Considering most of us first heard of Paris Hilton upon the discovery of her nude sex video, I’m not sure how exciting the prospect of seeing her undies is.
