Pamela Anderson

NBC announced Thursday that Pamela Anderson will make a cameo appearance as herself on an upcoming episode of Kath & Kim. Who better to personify the celebrity culture in which the show's mother-and-daughter protagonists so actively participate?

Anderson, of course, is no stranger to the boob tube. She made her name as Tim Taylor's Tool Time Girl on Home Improvement before moving on to starring roles in the syndicated hits Baywatch and V.I.P., the semiautobiographical animated show Stripperella, and Fox's short-lived sitcom Stacked. (What? It took place in a bookstore.)

Kath & Kim stars Molly Shannon and Selma Blair, and airs at 9:30 pm/ET on Thursdays.
