Pamela Visits Western Wall
Danny Ayalon is glad to have her
Earlier this week, Pamela Anderson, who is in town to judge and perform on the Israeli incarnation of Dancing with the Stars—which has received ample press due to the presence of a same-sex dancing partnership—visited the Western Wall, which happens to be another place where same-sex groupings are accommodated (in fact, they are strictly enforced). She approached the ancient stones, modestly dressed and draped in a headscarf to cover both her hair and famous assets. (Someone should tell her that covering her hair is halachically unnecessary since she is not a married woman, unless she and Tommy Lee have decided to give it yet another shot.) No word on whether the Baywatch star slipped a note into a crevice.
Danny Ayalon, the deputy foreign minister, rolled out the Twitter welcome mat: “Welcome @PamelaDAnderson. I am sure you will enjoy your time here.”

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.
I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
