Anderson: I’m Not Dying of Hepatitis C
Pamela Anderson wants the world to know that she’s not dying of hepatitis C.
The former “Baywatch” star admitted in March that she’s lived with the potentially fatal disease for years.
“Now I have people coming out of the deli hugging me because they think I’m dying,” Anderson told Jane magazine in a first-person story for its June/July issue. “I tell them, ‘I’m not dying. I’m fine. But if you wanna give me a free sandwich, go ahead!'”
The 34-year-old actress said she’s dealing with the liver disease with what she calls her “twisted sense of humor.”
“Like, when I found out I had hepatitis, I wanted to make bikinis with pictures of livers on them and give the money to the Liver Foundation,” she said.
Anderson, who’s engaged to rap-rocker Kid Rock, said she contracted hepatitis C by sharing a tattoo needle with her ex-husband, Tommy Lee. The former Motley Crue drummer insists he’s never had the disease.
