Pamela Anderson starred in sex tapes before they were cool.
Well, they were cool back then, but not as common as today. Take an hour lunch nowadays and there's a decent chance you miss a Tila Tequila nude rant.
Anyway, perhaps the biggest drawback of a sex tape, aside from the fact that it smacks of desperation, is having to tell your kids about it down the road.
When your mom is Pamela Anderson, you're gonna hear about it at some point. Cameras used to be prerequisites for the hair band rockers nailing her.
It was after the 2006 comedy Borat that Pam decided to tell her two sons about the erotic home video she shot with ex-husband Tommy Lee, their dad.
You know, the sex tape leaked in 1998, so maybe it was when one of the kids was ... okay, never mind, we are putting way too much thought into this.
"I knew kids were going to watch the film and there was a reference to the tape in the movie and people might say things," she said of the Borat quotes.
So, she sat down her sons, Brandon and Dylan, now 12 and 11, for the talk: "I just said, 'Look, Mommy and Daddy were massively in love," she said.
"We videotaped everything, everything was videotaped, and because of this new movie you’re probably going hear about something about it at school.'"
Better they hear it from her ... but talk about awkward.
Someday, many years in the future some kids at school are going to hear about the Carrie Prejean sex tape. What will their self-righteous mom say then?
Eh, she'll probably just blame our moralless society, Larry King and gays.
