Brandon Thomas Lee swore he would never do reality TV. Sure, it would’ve been easy for him to entice cameras into following him around: as the son of Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee, he’s naturally led a rather unique life, from the bluffs of Malibu, Calif. “For the longest time, I never thought I would do anything like this.
