Despite the commonly held belief that many celebrities benefit from their “homemade” videos, the former “Baywatch” star insists she didn’t see a cent from tape she made with the Mötley Crüe drummer.
“I made not one dollar,” the actress told Andy Cohen on Thursday’s “Watch What Happens Live.” “It was stolen property. We made a deal to stop all the shenanigans. I was seven months pregnant with Dylan. And I was thinking it was affecting the pregnancy, the stress. I said, ‘I’m not going to court anymore, I’m not being deposed anymore by these horny, weird lawyer men.’ I don’t want to talk about my vagina anymore.”
In the years since, celebrities have been able to turn a profit from “leaked” sex tapes, but Anderson — who also starred in one with former flame Bret Michaels — and Lee wanted nothing to do with that.
“It was stolen property,” she explained. “Neither of us made anything from it. It was stolen. [Late Penthouse founder] Bob Guccione offered us millions of dollars. We said no. It was already out at that time, the damage was done. So we said, ‘No way, we’re not getting involved off that.’”
Talk about the couple’s sex tape wasn’t the only time Anderson’s former husband came up during the show. Cohen also asked Anderson to pick which one of her rocker exes is the better musician: Lee or Kid Rock.
“Tommy Lee,” she said. “He’s the father of my kids.”
