The 13th time's the charm for Pamela Anderson. That's how many appearances the former "Baywatch" star will have made on the cover of Playboy magazine when her issue hits the stands in January 2011, according to a rep for the publication.
In a post from his official Twitter account on October 20, Hugh Hefner announced that 43-year-old Anderson is set to grace the pages at the start of the new year.
"Pamela Anderson is in the Mansion swimming pool, posing for the January cover in a tribute to 'La Dolce Vita,'" he wrote, referring to the classic 1960 Fellini film in which actress Anita Ekbeg romps in Rome's Trevi fountain in a slinky black gown.
Anderson will also contribute to an upcoming book, "Playboy's Greatest Covers," which will feature around 300 of the publication's covers from 1953 to date. According to Folio, Anderson will pen the foreward for the tome, which is expected to arrive in stores in October, 2011.
