Back in 1992, “Baywatch” called upon surfing legend Kelly Slater. The model and environmental activist is widely known for his record-holding 11 World Championships for Surfing.
He was also crowned the youngest, and eventually oldest, surfer to win the Championships. In the show, he played a talented surfer, named Jimmy Slade. When you get two young beautiful people to be working together for long hours, there’s really only one possible outcome.
Lee took further responsibility and donated $6,200 to a women’s shelter that dealt with similar issues. After leaving "Baywatch" and just going through a divorce, Anderson got the role for a drama series "V.I.P." as Vallery Irons. She portrayed a Hollywood figurehead for a private bodyguard company called "Vallery Irons Protection."
The series went on to record 4 seasons until 2002. It may not have reached the heights of "Baywatch," but still, countless loyal Pamela fans tuned in to watch the show.
Regardless of their whirlpool marriage, Anderson continued to focus on her career and starred in the superhero film based on the "Dark Horse" comic series "Barb Wire."
During filming, Anderson had to get a barbwire tattoo drawn on her arm as part of her character. Being frustrated with it being drawn on so many times, she decided to get it permanently done. Eventually regretting her decision, she went to get the tattoo removed in 2016.
Keeping Up With Kelly
Slater went on to star in 27 episodes of the show and left in 1996 for the North shore of Hawaii to pursue his professional surfing career. Slater and Anderson started dating in 1998 for a wholesome 20 months.
As for his relationship with Anderson, he said, “I learned a lot. I don’t have any ill feelings toward her. I wish her well. Hey, we had an amazing time together.”
Pamela and Marcus Schenkenberg
Soon after, Anderson met Calvin Klein model Marcus Schenkenberg in Monaco. His modeling and acting career aside, Schenkenberg also made magazine covers from his 10-month relationship with the actress. This attractive couple had kept their privacy and rarely made appearances in public, apart from the Iceberg ad they did together.
They broke up in 2001 because of their busy schedules, he wanted to focus on his career, and she wanted to focus on her kids.
