LANE: Because I have to go home soon and my mom threw out our TV when she caught me watching V.I.P. So I’m bored and I need some entertainment.
V.I.P. was an action-comedy television series starring Pamela Anderson as Vallery Irons, a woman who works at a hotdog stand but is mistaken for a bodyguard when she accidentally saves a celebrity. She cashes in on her fifteen minutes of fame by becoming the head of a security agency called V.I.P. (Vallery Irons Protection), and hires some real bodyguards to do the actual work. Despite her lack of skills or training, it is Vallery who ends up saving the day much of the time.
The satirical show became many people’s guilty pleasure for its sense of campy fun and never taking itself seriously. It ran from 1998 to 2002.
