“Due to circumstances out of my control, I have to remove my name from the collaboration with [chef] Christophe Leroy,” she wrote on her blog post, adding that the restaurant unfortunately “did not meet [her] expectations or agreements.” She also insinuated that he was unhappy with the treatment of staff.

It was only one week ago that the B.C. native shared her excitement over the launch of her new project. “I hope that sharing this sexy experience will ignite hearts and minds to veganism,” said the star.

While the former Baywatch star is “extremely disappointed” that the endeavour did not work out she reassured fans that she will continue to find ways to support causes close to her heart. “[I] will keep finding creative ways to help animals and vulnerable people all over the world,” she said.

Some of the mother of two's past projects include a vegan makeup collaboration with artist Alexis Vogel and a line of cruelty-free shoes and accessories. Pamela also founded her own organization The Pamela Anderson Foundation to support organizations that fight for human, animal and environmental rights.
