Pamela Anderson is doubling down on her accusations of impropriety against Tim Allen.
What are the allegations?
In her new memoir, Anderson claims that on the first day of filming for "Home Improvement," the hit sitcom that aired from 1991 to 1999, Allen exposed himself. She suggested Allen did this because she had appeared in Playboy magazine.
Anderson claimed in her book, according to Variety:
On the first day of filming, I walked out of my dressing room, and Tim was in the hallway in his robe. He opened his robe and flashed me quickly — completely naked underneath. He said it was only fair, because he had seen me naked. Now we’re even. I laughed uncomfortably.
Anderson, who played a minor role on "Home Improvement," was 23 years old at the time of the alleged incident; Allen was 37.
For his part, Allen has unequivocally denied the allegations. "No, it never happened. I would never do such a thing," he said, later following up on those comments by suggesting that Anderson's memory is faulty.
What is Anderson saying now?
Anderson told "ET Canada" that Allen was forced to deny what she says is true because admitting to the allegations could trigger a domino effect against him.
"He has to deny it because look at the times we're in. If he said, 'Oh yeah, I did that…' he'd be — a lot of these stories are just the tip of the iceberg," she said.
Anderson also denied making it up — in fact, she suggested that such a story could not be made up — and said she put her allegation in the book because "Home Improvement" was her first significant acting job and she believed it was an "important" story to tell.

In another interview with Variety published last month, Anderson appeared to defend Allen.
"Tim is a comedian, it's his job to cross the line. I'm sure he had no bad intentions," she said. "Times have changed, though. I doubt anyone would try that post-#MeToo. It's a new world."
