Pam’s a deadbeat

Pam Anderson leaving the Malibu Chili Cook-Off (9/4)

I don’t care how famous you are, when you don’t work, you can’t pay your bills. I know, right, what a shock. From Star magazine:

Pamela Anderson used to be the Baywatch babe with the million-dollar body! Now, she owes more than $1.2 million to creditors, including construction companies she stiffed after they remodeled her five-bedroom Malibu Colony home last year!

“A lot of people are owed a lot of money,” Jay Bruder, boss of Bruder Construction, tells Star. And none more than him! In June, he filed a $674,043 lien against Pam for the cost of “labor and materials and subcontractors to remodel main house, construct foundations for guest house.”

In addition to liens from countless other construction companies, Pam also owes $252,360 to California’s Franchise Tax Board in unpaid income tax from 2007.

Jim Brown, the president of Mini-Haulers, which carted the construction debris from Pam’s house, tells Star that Pam’s failure to pay his $1,975 bill has affected his family. “Putting food on the table isn’t easy in this economy. When someone doesn’t pay their bills, it’s that much harder!”

If this were 1991, I’m sure most of these subcontractors would have been able to “come to some sort of agreement” — *wink* *wink* — with regards to the money that Pam owed them (it’s actually a little known fact that from 1989-1996 Pam never carried around money when she went shopping — just condoms). Unfortunately for Pam, because of the ravages of time and hep-C, men are now declining that payment option.
