Alright, I really have seen it all now. In further proof that just about anyone can get their own online poker room, I give you Pamela Poker
- Pamela Anderson's new (ok, new-ish, I'm a little late on this one) poker site. Why am I surprised? If Cindy Margolis can do it, why not Pam? Hell, I should just open my own poker room, it can't be that hard.
All jokes aside, I am happy for my fellow Canuck, I can't blame her for getting on the poker bandwagon while it is still hot. What does bother me however, is her actual poker website. There is a link that says 'Pamela Anderson Blog'. I was thinking it had to be one of two things - either a blog written by Pam herself, or at the very least a poker blog with relevant content. Boy was I wrong. When you click on it, you are brought to a Blogger page, yes, but is not written by Pam, and it has nothing to do with poker. It is just one more outlet for them to increase her web presence. The entries have titles such as:
Pamela Anderson's iconic status is on the rise
Kid Rock obsessed with Pamela Anderson
Pamela Anderson pays surprise visit to winery
Puuuuleeeeeze. After reading this I went back to her site and saw another link - Poker Diary. Once again I got my hopes up that there may actually be some poker-related written content on her site, but no such luck. When you click on that link you are just redirected to yet another 'About Pam' page.
Message to the Marketing Team and Management of Pamela Poker: We get it. She is hot. She is famous. She works with PETA. We know, really. Is it truly stretching the imagination so much that you can't see the value in having some actual poker content on your site, or at the very least, have one of your blog/diary links be even remotely about the game?
