It seemed fitting that Pamela Anderson would offer a $28,000 scholarship to Bay Point Schools for troubled youth in Miami.
“I have a soft spot for bad boys,” she told the jam-packed ALL-STAR Gala Saturday night in South Beach as she pledged the cash.
Indeed, Anderson – who previously married “bad boy” rockers Tommy Lee and Kid Rock – is in the process of divorcing her third husband, Rick Salomon, who’s most famous for costarring in the Paris Hilton sex tape.
As for the demise of her three-month marriage, Anderson told PEOPLE, “It is good to just be me and stay home with my boys.”
The former Baywatch star – who has denied pregnancy reports – recently wrapped her stint with magician Hans Klok at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. “I am finished in Las Vegas and happy to go home,” she added. “This is what I am planning to do for the next few months.”
As celebrity host for the charity event (which also benefited Alex Rodriguez’s A-Rod Family Foundation), Anderson spent most of the night hanging with Miami drag queen Elaine Lancaster, her close friend of about four years.
Afterward, she dressed down in flesh-colored shorts and headed to Mansion nightclub, where she drank vodka and chatted with pals. After 45 minutes, she club-hopped over to SET, drinking Dom Perignon in a private room with friends Scott Weiland and club-owner Eric Milon until 4 a.m.
Although Anderson forgot to tip her SET servers, she quickly realized the error – sending her assistant back to the club to deliver several hundred dollars per waitress.
