Richardson Defends Allen
Those who are trying to take Allen down had a field day when blooper footage emerged that appeared to show him flashing Richardson on the set of “Home Improvement.” Daily Mail reported that Allen was dressed in a kilt in the video, and he can be seen lifting it up to show Richardson what is underneath, with her reacting by laughing it off.

Some were quick to say that this corroborates Anderson’s claims that Allen flashed his penis at her during filming of the 1990s sitcom. Richardson, however, has since shut this down by saying that Allen was wearing boxer shorts under the kilt in the blooper footage, meaning he didn’t flash her at all.

“People ask me what was under the kilt when he flashed me, he was well dressed under there,” Richardson told TMZ. “I was just shocked that he lifted the kilt, not by a man in boxer shorts.”
Anderson’s Claims Against Allen
This came after Anderson, 55, alleged in her memoir “Love, Pamela” that Allen, 69, flashed her decades ago when she appeared on 23 episodes of “Home Improvement” from 1991-1992.
“On the first day of filming, I walked out of my dressing room, and Tim was in the hallway in his robe,” she wrote in the memoir, which hits stores next Tuesday.
“He opened his robe and flashed me quickly — completely naked underneath,” Anderson added. “He said it was only fair because he had seen me naked. Now we’re even. I laughed uncomfortably.”
This was seemingly a reference to Anderson appearing nude on the cover of Playboy Magazine in 1989. Allen immediately fired back by denying her allegations, saying, “No, it never happened. I would never do such a thing.”

Richardson Fears Allen Has ‘Never Forgiven’ Her
Allen and Richardson played husband and wife on “Home Improvement” from 1991 until it went off the air in 1999. It was Richardson who decided that it was time to end the show, and she’s expressed fears that Allen has “never really forgiven me for not wanting to do the ninth year.”
“He loved Tim Taylor,” she explained to Entertainment Tonight back in 2020, referring to Allen’s character. “Tim Taylor was this happily married man with his great boys and great life, and so he wanted that show to go on forever.”

Fans will remember the chemistry that Allen and Richardson shared onscreen, and she said that this translated to behind the scenes as well.
“Immediately, I loved him,” she said.

Allen has long been a target in the liberal world of Hollywood because he is not afraid to publicly express his conservative views, so it’s not surprising that leftists would try to use Anderson’s unsubstantiated allegations to take him down. Richardson could have just sat silently and let the left use the newly-surfaced blooper footage to railroad Allen, but she wasn’t about to let them do that to her friend.
God bless Richardson for having Allen’s back!
