Pamela Anderson doubled down on her recent claims that Tim Allen flashed her on the set of Home Improvement in 1991, after he vehemently denied that it happened.
The Baywatch Star, 55, sat down for an interview with ET Canada, and shared why she believed Allen had been quick in denying the alleged encounter.
‘He has to deny it because look at the times we’re in. If he said, “Oh yeah, I did that…’ he’d be — a lot of these stories are just the tip of the iceberg,’ she shared.
Anderson previously accused Allen of flashing his genitals to her more than 30 years ago, in her new memoir Love, Pamela.
‘I would never do such a thing,’ Allen, 69, told Variety in his response, saying that the incident Anderson described ‘never happened.’ He also told DailyMail.com he was ‘disappointed’ in Anderson following her claims.

She also explained why she decided to include the story in her memoir: ‘Because it was my first job, Home Improvement, that I felt it was important to say.’
The blonde bombshell also revealed what happened after the alleged flashing took place: ‘He ran back into his room and then he was embarrassed all day and acting like a little giddy school boy.’
‘You can’t make that stuff up. How could you make that up?’ she asked, after retelling her story.
Meanwhile Allen told DailyMail.com of Anderson, ‘She was a great co-worker, I’ll tell you that. She’s a fun girl. Everybody loved her, but everybody at ABC is a little disappointed in her… memory, put it that way. All of us at Disney/ABC, really.’
He added, ‘She’s a good girl.’ The actor was asked before driving away if he had a good memory, to which he nodded stoically and replied: ‘Yeah.’
Pamela first shared the story in an excerpt from her memoir, obtained and published by the outlet, where she said the incident occurred on the set of Home Improvement in 1991 when she was 23-years-old and he was 37.
‘On the first day of filming, I walked out of my dressing room, and Tim was in the hallway in his robe,’ said Anderson, who played the role of Lisa on the ABC sitcom, which starred Allen as Tim Taylor.
She continued, ‘He opened his robe and flashed me quickly – completely naked underneath.’

Recollections may vary: Anderson previously claimed Allen flashed his genitals at her while on the set of Home Improvement in her new memoir Love, Pamela. He has issued a response to the accusation, insisting it ‘never happened’
Anderson, who had previously posed for Playboy magazine, continued to describe the circumstances of the encounter: ‘He said it was only fair, because he had seen me naked. Now we’re even. I laughed uncomfortably.’
Just days after he denied the accusation, Allen was caught on camera flashing one of his other co-stars in unearthed footage.
A blooper from the hit 90s sitcom shows Allen lifting up his kilt in front of his on-screen wife Patricia Richardson who appears to laugh off the incident.
The video casts doubt on Allen’s statement that he would ‘never do such a thing’ when accused by Anderson of also flashing her on the Home Improvement set.
However Richardson has insisted her co-star was ‘well dressed’ underneath the kilt in the uncovered footage and was wearing a pair of boxer shorts.

Laughed it off: Richardson laughs off the incident in the clip, later insisting her co-star was wearing boxers
The clip begins by showing Allen standing proudly in the kilt, while Richardson’s character Jill Taylor jokes ‘hangs long, I just wish it was shorter.’
Seconds later, Allen turns to lift the kilt completely so only Richardson can see what’s before.
She gasps dramatically as the live studio audience roars with laughter.
But Richardson told TMZ: ‘People ask me what was under the kilt when he flashed me, he was well dressed under there, I was just shocked that he lifted the kilt, not by a man in boxer shorts.’
Prior to breaking out as a mainstream show business star, Anderson in the early 90s had appeared on sitcoms such as Married… with Children, Charles in Charge and Top of the Heap.

Anderson appeared on a total of 22 episodes of the series in its first and second seasons between 1991 and 1992, making one last appearance during the show’s sixth season in 1997.
She left amid massive career success with the hit show Baywatch, on which she starred as C.J. Parker.
Tim himself also took part in a number of projects following the success of Home Improvement, and went on to star in another long-lived series, Last Man Standing, and was also the voice actor of Buzz Lightyear in the Toy Story franchise.
Before his rise to fame, the comedian hit a few rough patches of his own, and was arrested in 1978 for possession of cocaine.
He plead guilty to drug trafficking charges and was sentenced, but was later paroled in 1981 after spending just a little over two years in a Federal Correctional Institution.
New memoir: Her memoir, Love, Pamela, which is published by HarperCollins, was released January 31, along with her Netflix documentary Pamela, A Love Story
