Kid Rock Gives Pam Anderson a Rock

Looks like it will be another rock and roll marriage for Pamela Anderson. The actress, 34, star of TV's "V.I.P.," is planning to marry rocker Kid Rock (ne Bob Ritchie), 31, Anderson's publicist Marleah Leslie told the Associated Press. The two have not yet set a date for the wedding. He proposed Thursday night, and gave Anderson a ring, in the Las Vegas desert, Leslie said, describing the former "Baywatch" star as "elated." The couple met in New York in April 2001, while both were backstage at VH1's salute to Aretha Franklin at Radio City Music Hall, the AP reported. It will be Rock's first marriage; he has a 9-year-old son, Robert Ritchie Jr., with a former girlfriend. Anderson, who was married to Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee, 39, has two sons with him, Brandon, 6, and Dylan, 4. Anderson claimed last month to have contracted hepatitis C, a potentially fatal liver disease, which she said she got from sharing a tattoo needle with Lee. He countered that he doesn't have the disease. No word yet on whether Anderson will have the wedding taped.
