While Anderson, 54, blasted the show, which stars Lily James and Sebastian Stan and tells the story behind the couple’s infamous sex tape, Lee, 59, “isn’t bothered at all. He’s even said nice things about Sebastian and offered him advice when it was being shot,” spills the source.
“It’s the opposite of Pam, who doesn’t like Lily 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.” (The Baywatch alum was so miffed by the show that she’s preparing to tell her side of the story in a new Netflix documentary!)
Anderson, who shares kids Brandon, 25, and Dylan, 24, with the rocker, “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.”
As OK! previously reported, sources claim the former Playboy model has vowed not to watch the show depicting her life because it hits way too close to home with past traumas.
"This burglary is the only thing in her life she would erase from her life. It haunts her to this day," the source noted of now infamous crime. "It was a violation having this tape taken. This was a very traumatic time in her life. And it's shocking that they are recreating it."
Another source noted, "apparently [Anderson] doesn't deserve privacy because she's a sex symbol," stating the existence of the show exploiting the worst moments of her life is a "sad reflection on how far we've not come as a society."
