If you missed it, Tim faced widespread criticism earlier this week after his predecessor home improvement Costar Pamela Anderson recalls an alleged disturbing incident that occurred on set.
Pamela, who was 23 at the time, claimed in her forthcoming memoir titled Love, Pamela-This is Tim He flashed his penis at her On her first day on set.
She claimed, “He opened his robe and flashed me quickly — completely naked underneath.”
At the time, Pamela was widely known as a Playboy model, with appearances on ABC home improvement being her first acting gig. She went on to claim that Tim said he flashed her because he wanted to “get even”, given he had seen her naked before.
He said it was fair, because he saw me naked. “We are now even.” I laughed uncomfortably,” she claimed.
Tim vehemently denied Pamela’s claim, saying variety: “No, that never happened. I would never do such a thing.”
Days later, Pamela offered more insight into the alleged incident, saying Vanity Fair that she found the whole thing “surreal and uncomfortable”.
“This true story is just one of the many surreal and uncomfortable situations she has learned to navigate,” she said. “My book is about how it made me feel my whole life and, in this case, my career. I have no ill will towards Tim. But like the rest, it should never have happened.”
“It was the first of many bizarre encounters where people felt they knew me enough to make complete fools of themselves,” she adds in her memoir, in Vanity Fair.
Pamela was met by a group of Supportive messages Fan after the claim was made, many people rightly point out that women could not have comfortably spoken about such incidents in the 1990s, when home improvement aired.
Now, shortly after Pamela’s claim came to light, an old clip of Tim showing off another of their photos has surfaced. home improvement costars – albeit in different circumstances – have resurfaced online.
The intended error represents actress Patricia Richardson, who portrayed Tim’s wife on the show.
When Patricia’s character tells Tim’s character he looks “real hot” in a kilt, she shows up next Visibly shocked He suddenly lifts his union and positions himself towards it, prompting the live studio audience to break into fits of laughter.
Talking about a fault with TMZ This week, Patricia, 71, explained that Tim was “dressed nicely there,” and explained that she was “shocked that he pulled up a skirt, and not by a guy in shorts.”
Of course, it’s important to note that this exchange is vastly different from Pamela’s exchange, with Baywatch The star claimed Tim was completely naked — not to mention that it happened backstage, not in front of a live studio audience.
But still, many fans couldn’t help but suspect Tim’s actions when they reacted to the resurfaced video of him and Patricia.
“awesome!!!” one person wrote. “Obviously not Buzz Lightyear and more of a Woody. I think Pamela Anderson,” He said else.
Pointing out the difference between the two events, one person tweeted, “Flipping his kilt with his boxers underneath while the cameras roll is different than flashing a penis at someone. Anyway, I guess Pamela!”
On the other hand, others urged Tim to apologize to both Pamela and Patricia. “I think Pamela Anderson. He owes her and Patricia Richardson a public apology.”
