Pamela Anderson Gives Not-So-PETA friendly UGGs the Boot

pam_anderson180.jpg The People web site, apparently taking a break from reporting about Britney Spears’ rehab, has reported that former Baywatch Star Pamela Anderson has given UGGs the short shrift. She apparently just recently learned that the trendy boot is made from sheepskin with the fur intact, not a wooly lining attached to a synthetic backing as Pam thought for a long, long time.

As you can imagine, Pam feels really guilty about starting the trend back when she was just an upcoming star in a red-hot bathing suit. She’d wear UGGs to fend off ocean breazes on the Baywatch set.

Now she knows better:

“Do NOT buy UGGs!” Pam writes on her blog. “Buy Stella McCartney or Juicy boots – I’m looking for alternatives myself for my boys and the men in my life! I’m designing some right now for my family and will try and have some available on my Web site soon.”

Is it only a matter of time before we see Pammie boots in stores nationwide? This writer is counting the minutes. And on that note, she’s signing off on as the mysterious “guest blogger.” Alissa will back on Monday with design-related news about the Academy Awards.
