Tim Allen flashes Home Improvement co-star Patricia Richardson in resurfaced video amid Pamela Anderson flashing claims
A clip of Tim Allen flashy co-star Patricia Richardson on the set of Home improvement has resurfaced amid claims he did the same Pamela Anderson.
Although the actor violently denied Anderson’s claims that he exposed himself to her while starring on the hit sitcom back in the 90s, there’s no denying Allen Richardson — who played his on-screen wife, Jill Taylor — flashed during an outtake from filming.
Watch the video above.
In the behind-the-scenes blooper reel that resurfaced, Allen can be seen wearing a kilt, with Richardson quipping, “Hangt long, I wish it was short.”
The camera doesn’t show what’s underneath, but Allen then playfully lifts his kilt to flash his co-star before the pair burst into laughter in front of a live studio audience.
In a statement later shared with TMZRichardson clarified that Allen was not naked under the kilt.

“People ask me what was under the kilt when he flashed me, he was well dressed under it, I was just shocked that he lifted the kilt not by a guy in boxers,” she told the outlet.
It is in her forthcoming memoir, Love, Pamela, that Anderson made allegations of inappropriate behavior by Allen. In an extract obtained by Varietythe Baywatch alum claimed the alleged incident happened on her first day of filming Home improvement when she was 23 years old.

“On the first day of shooting, I walked out of my dressing room and Tim was standing in the hallway in his dressing gown. He opened his dressing gown and quickly flashed me – completely naked underneath,” she wrote.
“He said it was only fair because he saw me naked. Now we’re even. I laughed awkwardly.’
It is believed that Allen, who was 37 at the time, was probably referring to Anderson’s early days as a model for Playboy in 1990.
Allen has since responded to her allegations, telling TMZ that he never “flashed” the actress.
“No, it never happened. I would never do something like that,” he told the outlet.

An hour after he released a statement, Anderson said she had “no ill will” towards Allen, but she needed to speak her truth.
“This true story is just one of many surreal and uncomfortable situations I’ve learned to navigate,” she said. Vanity FairMy book addresses how I felt over the course of my life and, in this case, my career. I have no ill will towards Tim. But like the rest, it should never have happened.”
Home improvement ran from 1991 to 1999, of which Anderson stayed for only two seasons, playing Allen’s sidekick Lisa the Tool Time Girl. After 23 episodes, she left in 1992 to play the lead role Baywatch.
