Pamela Anderson is already seeing the benefits of her new Dancing With the Stars gig!
"Her legs look awesome," pal and former Heatherette fashion designer Richie Rich tells UsMagazine.com. "They seriously couldn't look any better... She's been in rehearsals and she's doing a great job."
A good enough job to win?
"She's going to kick ass," Rich -- who said he'd "love to" design Anderson's DWTS costumes -- told Us at the premiere of The Runaways in New York City Wednesday night. "She's going to let them have it!"
Rich tells Us that the former Baywatch star, 42 -- who has been practicing the mambo and "the cha cha cha" with partner Damian Whitewood -- has an "innate sensibility of performance" and could make it to the finals.
"She has it, and I can see it," he says.
One contestant he doesn't see as competition is Kate Gosselin.
"I don't really see Kate Gosselin being able to dance very well," he tells Us. "Maybe I'm wrong. But when you see Pam's legs, you'll understand! She's going to win! She's a little dynamo!"
