Pamela Anderson and David Hasselhoff together again, beachside.
The former “Baywatch” stars were in a Santa Monica hotel, just off the Pacific Ocean, Monday night for an event trumpeting the release of DVD box sets of the first two seasons of their long-running series.
They were joined by Traci Bingham, Jeremy Jackson and Donna D’Errico, among others.
The show, which was produced from 1989-2001, followed the lives and loves of a group of California lifeguards.
While her trademark curves are still intact, Anderson looked unusually trim as she walked the red carpet and discussed the DVDs. “I’m excited,” she said. “I want my kids to see it and then they’ll know how cool their mom is.”
After making her mark on the hit sitcom “Home Improvement,” Anderson became a “Baywatch” cast regular in the series’ second season in 1992. She stayed with the show for five years.
“Every day was so fun,” she recalled. “It’s the best job in the world, being at the beach every day with my dog and my kids ... Nothing has compared to it since.”
Hasselhoff looked tired as he made his way down the press line.
“It’s unbelievable,” he said of the reunion. “I had no idea that it was going to be this big ... There is a feeling here of absolute family because we were together for 11 years.”
At one point, “Baywatch” aired on every continent on the planet, except Antarctica, according to the Internet Movie Database.
“I think the secret of its success was that it was always about saving lives, not taking lives,” Hasselhoff noted.
“It was entertaining, it was light, action, humor — it had a lot of fun and a lot of heart. I would put heart, humor, action on every script. I’d say, ‘Where is the heart? Where is the humor? We got the action?”
