Sam Simon’s private service was held on Saturday, and Pamela Anderson was in the front row. She called Sam the only real gentleman in her life. Pam and Sam were both PETA honorary directors. They bonded over their concern about animal abuse, and if he gave her a ring, it’s strictly between the two of them and no one else. She cheered him up and arranged for a personal trainer to help him be less dependent on his cane, while he supported her as she struggled with divorce. They were solid pals, and Sam was a generous man who knew his own mind right up to the end.
