I wonder what went wrong?

I mean, when you look at her you see a beautiful, happy woman, who I am sure is all set money-wise and has two loving sons - so why can't Pamela Anderson find true happiness?

I remember years ago, the famous blonde was the girl that every fella wanted - for obvious reasons - and posters of her could be found on the ceilings and walls of lots of boys' bedrooms.

No-one and I mean no-one could wear and run in a red Baywatch swimsuit like Ms Anderson and many women, including myself, could only dream of looking even a tiny bit like her.

Of course, like with most celebrities, because they are gorgeous and loaded and have the most fabulous wardrobes, we just assume they have found all the happiness they could need.

They must be so content - right?

So, where has it all gone wrong for Pamela?

There was great news last week when it was announced in the press that the 52-year-old had got married again.

She and movie producer, Jon Peters (74) tied the knot in a private ceremony in Malibu on January 20.

Following the wedding, Pamela shared a lovely photo of the couple and even referred to herself as Pamela Peters at one point.

I was so delighted for her.

It's always nice for people to find happiness and finally, she had..........for 12 whole days.

That's right, it was revealed at the weekend that the pair had split to "take some time apart to re-evaluate".


The pair had not even had the time to obtain a valid marriage certificate when they separated.

I mean, it's not as if they didn't know each other.

They first met 30 years ago and dated. He even proposed but was turned down and they have only reunited recently.

How on earth does a marriage last just 12 days?

Pamela told the press: "Life is a journey and love is a process. With that universal truth in mind, we have mutually decided to put off the formalization of our marriage certificate and put our faith in the process. Thank you for respecting our privacy".

What a load of piffle.

Pamela what is the problem?

I mean, this was your fifth marriage.

First there was Tommy Lee, then Kid Rock, then Rick Salomon - who you married twice - and then Jon Peters.

Have you ever considered that maybe you're not the marrying type?

How can someone so beautiful not be able to find true love and keep it?

Just goes to show no-one and nothing is ever what it seems.

The thing is, if Pamela Anderson looks the way she does and can't hold on to a husband, what hope is there for the rest of us?

Maybe it's time to invest in a red swimsuit?

Desperate times and all that.


Applause this week for super rock band, The 1975 who have announced a very special outdoor concert in London this summer.

Describing the show as "the greenest show Finsbury Park has ever seen", the popular Manchester band have revealed the entire gig will be paperless and have also pledged to plant a tree for each and every ticket sold.

The band is also introducing sustainable T-shirt printing where fans can bring old T-shirts to be printed with the latest 1975 designs, while Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil? will be used to power the concert.

Great effort.



If the winter weather has left you feeling pale and downbeat, how do you fancy getting your glow on?

And, with the help of Lusso Tan, you can say bye-bye to tanning disasters and hello to an all-over tan, inspired by a Mediterranean summer.

According to the experts at Lusso Tan, the key to a winter tan is to get your shade right and the secret is to go down a shade in winter as skin tones are paler, and cannot carry the darker tones loved in summer.

Also, tan fades much quicker and can look uneven after just a few days.

You can enjoy a professional looking streak-free tan at home with Lusso's velvet soft, double sided tanning mitt and streak free lotion available in light, medium and dark.

Lusso Tan is available in Medicare Pharmacies on Amazon and at
