Pamela Anderson: I’m auctioning off the engagement ring Rick Salomon
Pamela Anderson is auctioning off the $125,000 engagement ring she was given by her ex Rick Salomon because she wants to put it to “good use”.
The 48-year-old actress' separation from Rick was finalised in April (15), marking the second time the pair had married and divorced.
And she is not keeping the Tiffany & Co. platinum diamond band he bestowed on her, which is a single row ring called Contour.
She informed Extra the piece of jewellery, which is comprised of a 3.24 carat diamond surrounded by other smaller diamonds, will be auctioned off for charity.
“You can buy the Tiffany engagement ring that Rick gave me because I want it to go to some good use,” she expressed. “It’ll make somebody happy, it’s beautiful and it’s very special to me but I want the money to go to the foundation because I can do great things with every dollar of that. That will save a lot of animals and help a lot of people.”
Pamela is selling the ring on eBay and bids will start at $100,000. All money generated from the auction will go to The Pamela Anderson Foundation, which benefits “human, animal and environmental rights”, according to the organisation’s website.
While speaking to Extra, Pamela was promoting her sexy new poetry book Raw. She has a number of projects on the go, as she is also currently promoting her new line of vegan-friendly boots called Pammies.
But the former Baywatch star still has her hands full with personal matters, as her teenage sons with Tommy Lee, Brandon and Dylan, are running amok.
“Mine are 19 and 17, but right now they’re giving me a little bit of a hard time. They’re pushin’ it,” she revealed.
But fortunately their rocker father Tommy is helping Pamela tremendously.
“Tommy has been really great, supportive right now. He's stepping up,” she shared. “Which is really funny because getting advice from Tommy like, ‘Behave yourself’, they're like, ‘What?’”
