AceShowbiz - Tim Allen has found himself at the center of a career-threatening situation after he's slammed with Pamela Anderson's flashing claim. The "Last Man Standing" actor reportedly fears his career will end following the accusation.
Radar Online reported on Tuesday, January 31 that the beloved sitcom actor, who was accused of flashing Pamela on the first day of filming "Home Improvement", told his pals that he's being targeted because of his "conservative beliefs." A source spilled to the site, "Tim's telling pals he's being piled on because of his conservative beliefs."
Many believe his political views were the death knell for his latest sitcom, "Last Man Standing", which was canceled despite good ratings. However, industry sources claimed the show is being brought back after an uproar among fans. "That turn of event speaks to the fact Hollywood may hate him, but the rest of the country loves him," one insider argued.
The report came after Tim himself denied Pamela's claim. On January 22, he stated, "No, it never happened," before insisting that he "would never do such a thing." In a new statement to Daily Mail, he stressed that "everybody at ABC is a little disappointed in her… memory, put it that way. All of us at Disney/ABC, really." He added, "She was a great co-worker, I'll tell you that. She's a fun girl. She's a good girl."
Pamela made the claim in her new memoir titled "Love, Pamela". In it, she penned, "On the first day of filming, I walked out of my dressing room, and Tim was in the hallway in his robe. He opened his robe and flashed me quickly -- completely naked underneath."
"He said it was only fair, because he had seen me naked. Now we're even. I laughed uncomfortably," Pamela, who was just 23 years old at the time of the alleged incident, continued in her memoir, which is scheduled to release on January 31. Tim, who was 37 at the time, was presumably referring to Pam's modeling for Playboy, which helped turn the budding actress into an internationally known sex symbol.
