SACRAMENTO — Halsey M. Minor, the Cnet co-founder and a high-tech business pioneer of the 1990s, tops the state of California's latest list of its 500 biggest income-tax delinquents. Minor and his wife, Shannon, both of San Francisco, owe California $10.5 million, tax officials reported Friday. Minor did not respond to telephone messages seeking comment. Minor's wasn't the only quickly recognizable name on the state list. Former Playboy model and "Baywatch" actress Pamela D. Anderson of Woodland Hills owes $524,241 in state income taxes, the list says.

Gregory J. Bonann not only co-created "Baywatch" but he also lives the lifestyle from his Malibu beach compound, part of which he just sold for $5.25 million. The secondary house, with two bedrooms and two bathrooms in 2,618 square feet, features a master bathroom with an indoor shower that opens to an outdoor shower and beach access. The rooms open to beachfront decks. There is a patio with a hot tub, a three-car garage and six more parking spots on the property. Bonann, 59, was a creator, executive producer and director of "Baywatch" (1989-2001)

First, there was Pamela Anderson shimmying in all her sex-kitten glory this spring on "Dancing With the Stars." Then there was the Victoria's Secret "Bombshell" campaign followed by the racy, headline-sparking Miss USA 2010 lingerie photos. It's official: The va-va-voom look is back in a way that hasn't been seen since Anderson was a "Baywatch" beauty in the 1990s. And why not? Anderson's signature style of big, glamorous makeup is a look that's been seducing men throughout history, reaching back in time to Cleopatra's drawn-on cat eyes and the Old Testament's painted seductresses.

What do you tell someone who still wants to see how Joan Van Ark is holding up, chat with Dr. Kildare and Wyatt Earp or look into the, um, eyes of a bevy of still-buoyant "Baywatch" babes? Stand in line. That and 20 bucks buys you a Vaseline-free lens into pop culture's past at the Hollywood Show, where time is elastic, even if its famous faces and figures are not. The quarterly autograph and memorabilia show -- a retro nirvana for TV Land, VH1 and Turner Classic Movies fans and celebrity signature collectors -- unites vintage Tinseltown idols and survivors with the people who made them as-seen-on-TV commodities.

Eric Atkeson's eyes dart across a sun-drenched stretch of beach, looking for ever-so-slight signs of trouble. His gaze fixes on three young boys splashing around in the water, just a bit farther out than he's comfortable with. His words trail off in mid-sentence, and suddenly he's making a beeline for the boys and an adult near them. One lecture later and the boys have moved a little closer to shore. Atkeson, 51, heads back to his lifeguard tower at Manhattan Beach, weathered crows feet smiling at the corners of his eyes.

SHE was known, in the opening credits, as Pamela Denise Anderson. Note the girl-next-door quality of the middle name, how it conjures the bombshell as a former tomboy on the Canadian prairie, her mother ordering her inside for dinner: "Pamela Denise, put down the BB gun and get in here for supper!" When did she lose the Denise? OK, I digress, for "Baywatch" is finally out on DVD. No, I didn't realize it either. But it's here, all right, the first two seasons in syndication.
