1. Tim Allen accused of flashing Pamela Anderson on 'Home Improvement' set

Tim Allen is denying some damaging allegations against him revealed in Pamela Anderson's upcoming book. In her memoir Love, Pamela, the Baywatch star claims that Allen flashed his penis at her on the set of his show Home Improvement in 1991, Variety reports. "On the first day of filming, I walked out of my dressing room, and Tim was in the hallway in his robe," she reportedly writes. "He opened his robe and flashed me quickly — completely naked underneath. He said it was only fair, because he had seen me naked." Allen was apparently referencing Anderson's Playboy modeling. He would have been 37 at the time of the alleged incident, while Anderson, who writes that she "laughed uncomfortably," would have been 23. In a terse statement, Allen denied her claim. "No, it never happened," he told Variety. "I would never do such a thing."
