A few weeks later, she filed for divorce from Kid Rock, citing irreconcilable differences.
That same month, Anderson made headlines when she appeared in the mockumentary hit, Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan starring British comedian Sacha Baron Cohen. In the film, Anderson played herself in what appeared to be a real-life botched kidnapping. Audiences debated whether or not the appearance was planned or a surprise. Anderson refused to comment, but told MTV that Cohen was "such a nice guy." The film was nominated for both an Academy Award and a Golden Globe.
Anderson announced she was engaged to socialite Rick Salomon. The couple married in October of that year, but they filed for divorce shortly after, on December 14th. Two days later, the exes were seen shopping together, and Anderson announced that the two were working on their relationship. Their truce, however, was brief: In March of 2008, after only nine weeks of marriage, the couple officially annuled their union citing issues of fraud.
Anderson's own television series, Pam: Girl on the Loose, debuted in August 2008. She also starred in two more comedy films that year, Blonde and Blonder and Superhero Movie. In 2010, she starred in the comedy Hollywood & Wine, alongside David Spade and Chris Kattan. That same year, she performed on season 10 of the hit show Dancing with the Stars. Anderson made her return to the show in 2012, for season 15: Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars.
Off-screen, Anderson, a lifelong vegetarian, is an outspoken advocate for PETA, protesting the use of fur and the hunting of seals. She even auctioned off a 2000 Viper sports car that appeared in Pam: Girl on the Loose to support the nonprofit organization.
