Actress Pamela Anderson has opened up about her upcoming memoir.
“[There’s] a little bit of anxiety before it comes out, because this has been a year, basically, of therapy, going through my life from my first memory to my last memory,” she said.
She also revealed that she wrote her memoir on her own without any assistance.
“I’m really proud of it. It is something I wrote every word of. I didn’t have a collaborator. I didn’t have any ghostwriter, nothing,” she shared.
When describing the book, she said, “It’s just one girl’s story of how I made it through.”
“A small-town girl going to Los Angeles and just going through all the wild and crazy adventures I did and then circling back and going home,” she added.
Anderson further explained writing her memoir helped her heal.
“I had no idea how much anger I had inside, or how therapeutic it was going to be for not just me, but for people around me, like my mother,” she said. “It’s been a healing process. I’m so happy to share it and hopefully people will be inspired.”
Continuing, she said, “I think a lot of it has to do with keeping secrets and keeping things kind of [repressed]. In my case, there’s been stories written and things happening, but you can’t really know somebody unless you hear the whole story. … I hope it’s empowering.”
In the teaser for Anderson’s upcoming documentary, “Pamela, A Love Story,” she spoke about being a survivor.
“I’m not the damsel in distress. I put myself in crazy situations and survived them,” she said.
Both her documentary and memoir are set to be released on Jan. 31.
