The documentary, available on Netflix, tells the story of one of the greatest icons of the 90s.

It is worth remembering that, last year, the series Pam & Tommy portrayed the troubled relationship of the actress with the drummer of the band Mötley Crüe. Unlike the documentary, the series did not please Pamela, especially in the moments that show how the famous sex tape of the couple ended up in the hands of an adult film producer.
