May the tax man have this dance, Pamela Anderson?

Pam-anderson Pamela Anderson, pay your taxes! The "Dancing With the Stars" contestant has made California's list of the top 250 people and businesses who owe more than $100,000 to the state.

The state says Anderson's tab, for personal income tax owed, is $493,144.68. Compared with the hit Nicolas Cage took on his Bel-Air mansion, that half-million or so is chump change. But with the state of the state's coffers, chump change like that would sound mighty fine hitting the bottom of the tax man's cup. 

Given that the list cuts off with someone who owes about $291,000, we're guessing there are quite a few more folks carrying six-figure shame.

The good news? Burt Reynolds is finally out of the top 250
