LATEST: The playboy who bedded Paris Hilton in the socialite's infamous sex tape has been revealed as the mystery poker player who stole Pamela Anderson's heart. In a recent interview with U.S. chat show host Ellen DeGeneres, Anderson revealed she had fallen for a poker player who offered to pay off her $250,000 (GBP125,000) gambling debt for a night of sex. Anderson refused to name names, but candidly told DeGeneres that she eventually succumbed to the rich fan's offer, explaining, "It worked out, I liked it... I paid off a poker debt with sexual favours and fell in love. It's so romantic." And now new photos have caught the former Baywatch babe with 1Night In Paris 'star' Rick Salomon, and friends of the actress/model insist he's the guy Anderson has fallen for. One source tells America's Star magazine, "Pam is smitten with Rick," while another reveals, "They've been dating for several weeks." The couple reportedly met around the poker table one night after Anderson's performance as part of illusionist Hans Klok's Las Vegas show. Anderson and Salomon reportedly went public with their romance at Blush nightclub at the Wynn Las Vegas resort.
