Truer Than Fiction

November 28, 2006 4:52 PM

You gotta hand it to those merry pranksters at the New York Post’s Page Six who today report that Baywatch actress Pamela Anderson has just filed for divorce from new hubs Kid Rock because he exploded at her at a screening of the movie she is now starring in, the box office hit “Borat. ”

In that flick, Anderson is literally the driving obsession of Sasha Baron Cohen, a make-believe Eastern European documentary producer who comes to America and falls in love with her after seeing “Baywatch” reruns. He subsequently travels by car from New York to Los Angeles to meet and marry her. I loved it.

But Page 6 reports that Anderson’s husband did not, calling her a slut, demanding to know why she made that movie. In defense of Anderson, something I never expected to do in my life, she was great and spurned Sasha’s advances in the film.

But tell that to poor Kid Rock who just couldn’t handle a dose of very funny fiction. Thanks Page Six, this is one for the “You Just Can’t Make This Stuff Up” file. And in La La land, such a scene can only boost her up-and-down career. Any bets that she’ll soon have her own reality-based TV show?

Cliff:

Playing a slut is Pam's strong suit. Come on Kid, didn't you see that sex tape all over the internet of your dear Pam and Tommy Lee. She makes a fortune on being a slut - maybe she really isn't but who cares. Marianne, you kindly call her an actress, but she just acts naturally. Her entire life is her reality show for the world. Anyway, she is always fun to watch even though she as a lot of synthetic attributes but that is what TV is
for.

I thought Kid had more going for him but I guess not. He has done some surprising good music with some folks like Jerry Lee Lewis' new album, "Last Man Standing." Guess what, Kid sings with Jerry Lee for the classic song, "Honky Tonk Woman." No wonder he did so well, he knows them so well.

Marianne Paskowski:

Hiya Cliff,
Trust me. I didn't see her porn shows, except for the several moments of clips in the "Borat" film which ultimately made him decide not to further pursue his famtasies, about marrying her. In the end, the film was a great morality play.

Now for this guy Kid Rock. Thanks for his musical history, but in the end, don't you just think this was a stunt to build their careers, ala Brittany etal? It's a shame that some of our most famous umpcoming or wannabee celebs have to resort to those measures, today. Not that either of these two are among them.

But recall Andy Warhol's now truism about 15 mimutes of fame. But maybe he was wrong. . Look at Anna Nicole Smith. God, after her cancelled s how on E!, the Surpreme Court to ruled in her favor, to get her sugar-daddy/dead husband's estate. Like I said, you can't make this stuff up.And that's why America loves this fluff. And Pamela Anderson and every Hollywood agent out there knows that and loves it all.
