The actress/model was on her way to meet the celebrity contestants taking part in the country’s upcoming Dancing With The Stars show, which she will guest on this week (08-09Nov10), when her chauffeur-driven BMW collided with a concrete post in a parking structure on the set of the programme.
Anderson was quickly transferred to another vehicle and driven to her destination.
A source tells WENN, “She was a little shaken but uninjured.”
Earlier on Sunday (07Nov10), the former Baywatch babe, who competed on the American version of the hit show last year (09), appeared at a press conference at the Dan Hotel in Tel Aviv with her dance partner, Australian Damian Whitewood.
She told reporters she had been planning a trip to Israel for many years, explaining, “My good friend David Lachapelle was just here – his exhibit is still up at the Museum of Contemporary Art – and he had the most fantastic time.
“We don’t get to hear about all the wonderful things in Israel, and just looking out my window here at the hotel and seeing the beautiful beach, my goodness, it’s gorgeous! I’m sure I’ll be going back (to the U.S.) with raving reviews.”
The Israeli Dancing With The Stars has already made big headlines – one of this season’s contestants, Gili Shem Tov, has made history by becoming the first celebrity to hit the dancefloor with a same sex partner.
The openly-gay sportscaster has been competing with professional dancer Dorit Millman.
Anderson and Whitewood will perform two sensual dances on the show on Monday and Tuesday night.
While she’s in Israel, Anderson hopes to meet with politicians in a bid to prompt a national ban on fur imports.
