Former “Baywatch” bombshell Pamela Anderson took on a second job as New York City dog walker, but it’s not because her career has cratered. In fact, it’s quite the opposite.
Anderson, 54, took on a critically lauded role as Roxie Hart in Broadway’s “Chicago.” Her eight-week stint in the musical required a cross-country move away from the four dogs she had to leave behind in California.
The actress has been getting her “dose of dogs every day” with daily jogs in Central Park, but TMZ reported that Anderson has been so lonely without her canine companions, that she asked her assistant to reach out to friends in the city to see if they needed a dog walker.
Anderson’s assistant hooked her up with an Irish Setter named Dash, who she has been walking in between rehearsals and performances for the last three weeks. Dash’s owners were reportedly “stunned” when they found out the international sex symbol was the person taking their pooch to the park.
The Broadway star offers her services pro-bono, and plans to keep the side gig as Dash’s best friend until her contract ends in July.
Anderson was recently the subject of Hulu series “Pam & Tommy,” which fictionalizes her romance with rocker Tommy Lee, and the subsequent theft and release of their infamous sex tape.
In March she announced that an upcoming untitled documentary on Netflix would explore her side of the story. The film is described as “an intimate portrait embedded in the life of Pamela Anderson as she looks back at her professional and personal path and prepares for the next steps on her journey.”
“My life/ A thousand imperfections/ A million misperceptions/ Wicked, wild and lost/ Nothing to live up to /I can only surprise you /Not a victim, but a survivor /And alive to tell the real story,” she announced in a handwritten note on Netflix letterhead that she shared on Instagram.
