"Brandon and Dylan are true miracles, considering their gene pool," Pamela Anderson said.
Pamela Anderson is opening up in a way she's never done before. With her new book Love, Pamela and Netflix documentary, Pamela: a Love Story, both out on January 31 she's decided to take her life into her own hands and share her story from her perspective. The Baywatch alum maintained a low profile when it came to her private life but now she's decided to talk about everything from her leaked sex tape to the end of her marriage with rocker Tommy Lee and how much she loves being a mom to her sons, 26-year-old Brandon and 25-year-old Dylan.

According to PEOPLE, the 55-year-old writes in her new memoir, "Brandon and Dylan are true miracles, considering their gene pool. They have been through so much, yet they are not full of holes."
The Barb Wire star is likely referring to the disastrous end to her marriage with Lee as well as the 1995 theft of her and Lee's personal tapes. One of the tapes was made into a sex tape and sold without their permission. "We dealt with it the best way we knew how and some of it got crazy," she admitted. "And Tommy and I, between the two of us, I don't think we had the maturity level to really handle it all."
The actress slammed the people who continue to profit from her private video. "It ruined lives, starting with our relationship — and it's unforgivable that people, still to this day, think they can profit from such a terrible experience, let alone a crime," she wrote in her book.
Anderson also spoke about what caused the end of her marriage. Lee was charged with spousal abuse in 1998 and she filed for divorce. "Tommy ripped Brandon off me and threw me and Dylan into a wall," she wrote, according to CafeMom. The distraught mom-of-two called 911 and the Mötley Crüe drummer served six months in jail for "felony spousal abuse."
"The divorce from Tommy was the hardest, lowest, most difficult point of my life," she continued. "I was crushed. I still couldn't believe that the person I loved the most was capable of what had happened that night. We were both devastated, but I had to protect my babies."

Anderson was dedicated to raising her boys thereafter. She found it difficult to forgive herself for affecting her kids with their messy personal lives, for "letting them down". But she said she wouldn't condone any violent behavior. "It was my childhood fears coming out. I didn't want that for my kids and as much as I loved Tommy more than anything in the world, I loved my kids more," she said.
Speaking of her boys she said "They saved me. I don't want to put that on my kids but having children changed everything. I've loved every moment."
