She’s a winner!
Pals of Pamela Anderson are still raving about her starring role as Roxie in “Chicago” one month after the “Baywatch” icon made her Broadway debut.
“She’s a star all over again! She’s like the horse who won the Kentucky Derby,” Anderson’s socialite pal Nikki Haskell told WM Leader.
Rich Strike won the Derby earlier this month after overcoming incredible odds as an 80-1 long-shot.
And if anyone knows about stars on the Great White Way, it’s Haskell, who told us she’s seen every show on Broadway this season with the exception of “one or two.”
Of Anderson, Haskell added, “She just got divorced about ten minutes ago from some guy in Canada — not Tommy Lee, he was several husbands ago…. [Pamela is] fabulous! She’s a showstopper. I’m so proud of her.”
Anderson spent her day off on Wednesday having an early birthday dinner with Haskell, who turns 81 on May 17. It was a dinner for two at Polo Bar and, “It was just fabulous,” Haskell said.
“Everyone was coming up to [Pamela] asking her for her autograph — even some of my friends! They didn’t even look at me. Everyone was asking, ‘Is that Pamela Anderson?’ They couldn’t believe she was there,” Haskell said.
Polo Bar head honcho Nelly Moudine even popped over to the table to say hello to Anderson and to wish Haskell a happy birthday, we’re told.
Anderson’s eight-week run in “Chicago” is coming to an end, but Haskell told us her friend “may come back in the fall.”
“She’s getting offers like crazy now to do all sorts of things,” Haskell added. And, of course, “It’s fabulous!” she said.
