Pamela Anderson hosts Swiss nightclub soirees
Pinup actress Pamela Anderson travelled to Switzerland over the weekend for appearances at nightclubs in Geneva and Basel.
The Canadian blonde, famous for her starring role in the Baywatch TV series, popped into Geneva’s Bypass club early Saturday morning for what was dubbed the “Pamela Anderson Official Party”.
The club advertised her VIP appearance in an advert on the Internet that underlined the fact that she held the record for the most cover photos in Playboy magazine.
Anderson, 45, arrived at the Geneva airport at 9.30pm and rested up at the Hôtel Intercontinental before heading to the nightclub at around 1.30am, Le Matin reported.
She posed for photos and received a bottle of Russian vodka packaged in a large box in the shape of an encyclopedia, the newspaper reported.
However, Anderson elected to order cranberry and other fruit juices rather than sample spirits, Le Matin said.
“I am very flattered by all the interest that they (her fans) are giving me, but it is true that can provoke a little increase in stress,” she is reported as saying in an interview with the newspaper.
Anderson noted that it was her first visit to Geneva after visiting Basel and Zurich last year.
“This will be the moment to learn a few words of French,” she said upon arriving at the Bypass club.
She stayed until 3.15am before heading on Saturday to Basel where “die Baywatch-Nixe” hosted a “jet set” dance night at Basel’s Grand Casino.
Last month, Anderson, an honorary director of PETA, the animal rights group, waded into a debate at the Geneva-based World Trade Organization over seal-fur exports.
Anderson sent a letter to the WTO urging the organization to uphold the European Union’s ban on such imports from Canada, calling the harvest of seals “inherently cruel”.
