Tommy Lee wrote Pamela Anderson a sweet letter after the release of Pam & Tommy.
The Baywatch legend claims she was not aware of the Hulu show until accidentally catching an advert for it.
She's not happy with the release of the miniseries and wished the studio would have got in touch with her first - though the executive producer said they tried their best to reach out prior to the release.
Take a look at the trailer below:
Pam & Tommy follows the 'true story' of the Pamela Anderson (Lily James) and Tommy Lee (Sebastian Stan) sex tape.
A disgruntled contractor (Seth Rogen) stole the tape from the couple's home and uploaded it to the web for millions to see.
The 55-year-old believes that people are still 'capitalising' off the incident and that she felt ‘run over’ after finding out about the series.
"I remember seeing this advert for Pam & Tommy and was like, 'What the hell is this?'" Anderson said on a recent episode of The Howard Stern Show on Wednesday (25 January).
"No one called me, I'm still alive, no one asked me, it's nothing to do with me.
"I felt kinda run over by that one.
"I don't think they portrayed Tommy or I very accurately.
"I haven't seen it but I've heard from people that it's a very shallow representation of us.
"I wish they would've called."
Despite Anderson's regrets, her former husband wrote her a heartfelt letter after the series dropped.
In an interview with Variety, the actor recalled Tommy's note, which allegedly read: "Don’t let this hurt you like it did the first time."
The pair got married in 1995 after meeting a year before at an event on New Year's Eve.
Later that year, contractor Rand Gauthier stole their safe containing the infamous sex tape and started distributing copies.
While Anderson filed for divorce in 1996, that same year, she gave birth their first child Brandon Thomas Lee.
They decided to give their marriage another try, but in 1998 Lee was arrested and Anderson filed for divorce again.
He was sent to jail due to a felony spousal abuse case.
In 2008, the pair reconciled and Anderson says she still keeps in touch with him.
"Just a text here and there, nothing too crazy. He's married and happy and she's good to him and I want to support that," she said.
"The sex tape took its toll on the relationship, it took its toll on my career and people are still capitalising off that."
