Pamela Anderson is ready to take on the great White Way!
“I think I’ve been rehearsing my whole life for this,” Anderson said of stepping into the iconic role of the merry murderess — who many other celebs like Christie Brinkley, Lisa Rinna and Ashlee Simpson have taken their stab at.
Upon making the exciting announcement about her Broadway debut, former Playboy model said in a statement, "From Baywatch to Broadway. I am inspired by the unexpected."
"This is it, and I will not hold back anymore. I am letting go. For Chicago, I’ll be putting all my cards on the table. I am doubling down — on me," she emphasized. "I have always been a huge fan of Bob Fosse's & Gwen Verdon's work. Ann Reinking, too," the Barb Wirestar noted in the press release. "Playing Roxie Hart is a dream fulfilled."

The exciting chapter in her career comes as her past with ex-husband Tommy Lee has become the focus of the new Hulu series, Pam & Tommy — which she feels does not accurately depict their history together.
Although the rocker — with whom she shares kids Brandon, 25, and Dylan, 24— has no problem with the show, “It’s the opposite of Pam, who doesn’t like Lily [James] playing her, and is ticked off that Tommy’s feeding even more interest in the series by talking about it so publicly instead of denouncing it.”
Anderson has "a pretty good relationship with Tommy,” adds the source. “But she can’t help but see his endorsement of the series as a sort of betrayal.”
