Pam Anderson, Sam Ronson tricked into strip club promo? Told ya so!

VincentPa_Jamie_16678629_600 Samantha Ronson, Pamela Anderson and Shannen Doherty were horrified, simply horrified -- according to Us Weekly --  when they found out they'd been booked to open a New York strip club earlier this week.

They'd all signed on to attend the grand opening of Sapphire Gentleman's Club in NYC. But OMG, they didn't expect strippers.

Gosh, maybe they should have read The Dish Rag. Our item dated April 16 was headlined:

"Animal rights activist Pam Anderson to open NY strip club/steakhouse. Don't tell PETA!"

We wrote: "Now Pam reportedly has been booked to appear at the opening of a gentlemen's (read: strip) club-slash-steakhouse in NYC.

She and another apparently hard-up honey, "The Hills' " Audrina Patridge, will show up for the April 27 opening of a new gentlemen's club named Sapphire New York, which Fox News says is part of Prime 333 Steakhouse on the Upper East Side."

Don't say we didn't warn you.

But Audrina musta have read The Dish Rag. Or her publicist did and then reread the fine print on the contract. She mysteriously didn't show up.

But poor Ronson -- who has probably had enough of scrawny,hair-flipping, pole dancing psychos -- grumpily worked the DJ booth as Sapphire's exotic dancers bumped and grinded provocatively in front of her.

"I had no idea it was a strip club!" said Doherty, who left after 45 minutes, told Us. "They told me it was a restaurant or club, so I was kind of in shock."

 Pamela Anderson kept to herself in a roped-off booth. Her security guard told reporters that the starlet wanted to be "left alone."

These girls are either full of it, can't read or they need to get better managers.

Wonder how much they got paid to appear? $10 grand? $25 grand? $40 grand?

What are the going rates for illiterate has-beens these days?
