Pamela Anderson: I'm 'Doing Everything I Can To Solve' My Tax Woes

Pamela Anderson might have been included on an annual list of delinquent taxpayers last week – the blonde bombshell reportedly owes $493,000 in personal income tax – but the “Dancing with the Stars” beauty said she’s doing everything she can to solve her financial problems.

“I take full responsibility and I’m working it all out as best I can,” Pam told Billy Bush for Access Hollywood and “The Billy Bush Show” on Monday. “I hate to owe anybody anything. It’s driving me crazy, but I’m doing everything I can to solve all that.”

Pam revealed that her taxes might be making headlines now, but it’s something she has been handling for some time.

“You know that’s been going on for awhile, but it got picked up because when you’re in the press I guess they dig around and try and find some dirt,” she told Billy. “I’m doing everything I can, obviously that’s really important to me.”

As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, on April 15, tax day, in fact – Pamela Tweeted that her hefty bill wasn’t planned.

“I’m not trying to avoid any tax obligation,” she Tweeted last week “Certain events occurred, outside of my control which caused this temporary but embarrassing situation. All of my tax obligations will be resolved in the very near future.Love Pamela”
