I don't make this stuff up.
Pamela Anderson, who starred in that "classic" drama, Baywatch, is giving blondes a bad name. The Canadian-born-naturalized American citizen recently accepted the this " prestigious title of Grand Dame of Montenegro" from His Imperial and Royal Highness, Stephan Tchernetich, Hereditary Prince of Montenegro, Serbia, and Albania, Voivodina, Hereditary Titular Emperor of Constantinople, Romania and Greece.
This "honor" was given to the 47-year-old former Playboy Playmate received the "award" for "recognition of my activism in defense of animals and especially of marine
life in our Ocean."
Is Pamela Anderson so vain or gullible or ignorant or desperate .... fill in the blank ... that she would accept an award without bothering to check if the person calling himself Prince Stefan was actually a real prince.
He's not. He's fraud. He claims to live maintain a court in Belgrade, which is new to me, as I have been to Belgrade three times as the guest of Crown Prince Alexander, whose father was the last king of Yugoslavia. Not once did I bump into this "Prince," certainly not at the Royal Palace compound or at the State Funeral, or even at the wonderful ice cream shop, Ice Box, at Knez Mihailova 52, in Belgrade.
It's one thing to claim one throne (Serbia), but he adds Montenegro, Roumania, Greece and Albania to his conquests. He's definitely not the Hereditary Prince of Montenegro. Nor is he an heir to Roumania, Greece or Albania (the Prince of Albania is a Moslem.)
I have been to Montenegro, a lovely little country. The real head of the former ruling house, Prince Nikola, represents the country at official events. Albania's Prince Leka II lives in Tirana. I have also been to Bucharest, and I can say I know members of the Roumanian Royal Family, including His Majesty King Michael. I have corresponded with and have met several times King Constantine II and Queen Anne Marie.
Pamela Anderson's "acting" career is long over (although her sex tapes may still be popular), but she does need to smarten up and verify the credentials of someone wanting to give her an honor. (I would not be surprised if there was a donation to the Prince's er um charity.)
After reading her acceptance speech, I realized Anderson may be a few fries short of a Happy Meal these days. Sorry to say this: Pamela Anderson is a dumb blonde. Embarrassing, to say the least.
"Prince Stefan's" office is in Monte Carlo. Doubt he pals around with the Prince and Princess of Monaco.
[received a comment, which I deleted, from one of Stefan's minions, who claims that the Vatican has all the documents proving his case. Sure. Absolutely. Right ...NOT.]
