Pamela Anderson Calls TV Shows ‘Epidemic of Ugliness’ Signing Donald Trump
Baywatch babe Pamela Anderson has a suggestion, and that is to end all reality television shows for good, calling them “desperate and exploitive, epidemics of ugliness”.
Anderson began her career as a Playboy cover girl, she moved forward to land roles on hit TV shows like Home Improvement and Baywatch.

While the star was also on a few reality shows like Big Brother, Dancing On Ice, and Dancing With the Stars, Anderson shared that actors don’t actually want to do reality shows in the first place and that agents usually “bullied” participants into doing the shows.
Did I enjoy being on a reality show?— Pamela Anderson (@pamfoundation) March 24, 2019
no more reality shows
or reality stars ..
France is polluted with them -
it’s an epidemic of ugliness, superficial competitions,
desperate and exploitive -
for the artist.
“You are usually bullied into doing TV like this by agents fighting over commissions. You’re left without any great amount of joy or money - you feel used, dirty, and with no feeling of accomplishment.”
In her case, she justified her choice saying,
“Unless of course - you attempt to find any meaning or redemption by donating all to charity. It’s how I forgave myself.”
Anderson may be on to something, as incidents of former reality stars taking their own lives have increased, due to some difficulties they face dealing with their quick rise to fame, the attention they receive and lose, and the negative effects of social media and criticism.
After the sudden death by suicide of Mike Thalassitis, who appeared on the dating show, producers of “Love Island” are being requested to create support groups for all reality show contestants after their participation in the series.
Everyone at ITV2 and Love Island are shocked and saddened by the terrible news about Mike. Our thoughts and condolences are with his family and friends. pic.twitter.com/QYkSTlTRvI— Love Island (@LoveIsland) March 17, 2019
An official statement read,
“When something so awful happens, we naturally enter a period of soul searching and ask whether anything could have been done. This review has lead us to extend our support processes to offer therapy to all Islanders and not only those that reach out to us. And we will be delivering bespoke training to all future Islanders to include social media and financial management.”
