Why Pamela Anderson Is a Great Mom

I have more in common with Pamela Anderson than I thought.

Both of us have had the pleasure of Tommy Lee and both of us have beach side houses in Malibu. Oh isn't life grand!

Wait ... that's my alternate reality. The water I live near is a polluted canal and Tommyland only happened in my dreams.

I'm talking about parenting, and as a new mom I'm learning the terms, the philosophies, the tips I ignore, the tips I love. And when it comes to parenting, this blonde bombshell and I have a few things in common.

  • She's an AP parent! The attachment parenting philosophy feels like it was written by my motherly instincts.
  • She believes in co-sleeping. This has been a big point of contention in my house, but my husband is coming around. Maybe if I had moves like Pam, things would be different. I'm talking about her tango on Dancing With the Stars, not her infamous sex tape!
  • She breastfed both of her sons for at least one year. A goal of mine.
  • She had a home birth -- twice! This is where my dreams come into play again. While I wish I could have had a home birth (even though birth is and was such a scary thing to me), my birth story is the exact opposite.
  • She's a very hands-on mom. Someone recently told me they knew someone who lived next door to her and that she was such a hands-on and involved mother. It made me like Pam even more.

Oh, Pam! Your crazy exploits in the press overshadow the great things you do for your kids.

Do you think Pamela Anderson is a good mom?

Never would have suspected Pamela was into AP. Shame on me for judging her based on her appearance!

I've always loved her, I knew there was a reason, lol!

How cool! cafemama, a LOT of pierced, tattooed and even gothic moms are AP moms. I happen to have 21+ piercings myself.

Oh my god. She sounds like an awesome mom!

RanaAurora - I actually wasn't thinking about tattoos or piercings (I have no ideas if she even has any) - I was surprised that someone whose appearance is so fabricated (fake boobs, bleached hair) would be into such natural methods of parenting.

I haven't seen my natural hair color in decades and want a boob job. :)
Natural versus instinctual and respectful = two totally different things, if that makes sense?

First and foremost, you can't breastfeed with implants because the ducts are severed when they insert those things. How dumb do we look? Secondly, anybody who is active in the international sex-trade and flying around hotel-hopping with other people's husbands cannot possibly find the time to be into attachment parenting, even if they know what that is. Thirdly, I guess it depends what your definition of A.P. is, but my own personal definition does not include compulsory mullets, decorating your boys' rooms all frilly and white, and using finger cots and hand lotion on them at bedtime. Nor does the A.P. parenting philosophy allow for abandoning babies at their father's doorsteps because the are "too ugly", as this woman did to Bill Gates back in the day with their daughter, Nicole Richie. No decent parent denies being the mother of her own child! There's no way she had home births. Her whole house is decorated in sterile white cotton. She's a germ freak and she's had TONS of surgery and stuff injected into her face to puff up her sagging trout pout. The woman is a _lie_, and she is no role model for any decent parent. Chances are, her milk-shakes are poisoned like all the other fast food she pushes.

I can't begin to describe the profound sorrow I feel for being forced to tell on Pam Anderson—but she is a vile human being and has hurt me in ways that make turning the other cheek impossible. I just don't want to see anybody misled by her ugly lies as a role model held up for others to emulate by the media. Our children deserve a fighting chance in this world because there are already so many odds against them!
