The Wo Poll – November 08

We all make mistakes. The WO Poll editorial staff made a huge one by not putting pressure on ourselves to get the poll out in November. Yes I know it is December 1st, but deal with it. The Red Bulls had a hell of a miracle MLS playoff run, which we couldn’t stop obsessing over. Beyond our half assed apology… four new women make their way into the poll, and for the first time ever… Mandy Moore is not on the list. Let’s see how it turned out… cough cough ahem… a month late.

1. (1) Jennifer Love Hewitt – No. The WO staff will not give up on her. The good news? Ghost Whisperer is in full swing, so we can see her week in and week out. The bad news? Word on the street is that she already has a wedding dress picked out for her eventual wedding with Ross McCall. We love her too much, and can’t possibly hope it gets called off. Still it saddens us that we never got our shot.

2. (2) Kristen Bell – I (Barry) have DVR’d the entire season of Heroes, but have heard through the grape vine that I won’t be happy with the Bell exposure. She’s been with Dax Shepard for around a year now, which we can live with. Our main problem lies in the fact that they will be co-stars in the upcoming When In Rome. Couples working together in Hollywood upsets us. Deeply.

3. (NR) Mila Kunis – God damn you’re hot. Sorry for the language Bible thumpers. Mila is just everywhere these days, and just keeps getting hotter and hotter. She recently signed on for the Denzel Washington vehicle The Book of Eli, where he travels around a post apocalyptic USA. I don’t predict Mad Max level awesomeness, but Mila Kunis can run our Bartertown any day.

4. (3) Elisha Cuthbert – Turned (at press time) 26 years old this month (Nov. 30th for the fanboys). She is a beautiful young working actress…. I really don’t know what else to say this month.

5. (9) Megan Fox – Skyrocketing up from the nine spot is overly sexy Megan. If you’re not into geek culture you might not have heard of the Wonder Woman hoax. Well that’s what the Brits are calling it. Megan Fox dressed up like Wonder Woman (not picked for the movie… yet… ) fake or not… was enough to get our blood boiling with geekified lust.

6. (NR) Kristen Stewart – It takes a certain type of woman to put up with a WO staff member, and although it comes into question at times… yes we are all straight. There is give and take in relationships though, and some of us may or may not have seen Twilight. Now beyond the bad kabuki makeup on the vampires and the fact that they invented stupid new rules and descriptions for/about vampires… Kristen Stewart is the only thing that made this movie tolerable. Although Stephanie Meyer may never figure out what a real vampire is… Kristen Stewart (and the rest of the girls in the movie) made a shitty waste of time almost watchable.

7. (10) Katherine Heigl – Knocked Up is on while I type this. It just kind or turned out that way. She’s still hot. I can’t really say anything else about her. I’m just going to leave it at that.

8. (8) Blake Lively – Staying strong in the eight spot is Blake. I’m not going to lie. I google news’d her to see if there was anything to say about her. I should have let Buford write this up. He’s the Gossip Girl fan. Lively is smoking though. That should be enough.

9. (NR) Olivia Munn – Back from the bubble is Olivia. Ms. Attack of the Show finds herself back on the list, because… well… those pictures of her as Chung Li last month were just hot. Real hot.

10. (NR) Hayden Panettiere – Heroes is back and so is Hayden. The WO loves her, but somehow always seems to overlook her due to the hotness of some of the other Heroes girls. They know who they are. She is still an up and comer, and should be around for quite some time.

The bubble this week brings us newcomers Elizabeth Banks (Go see Zack and Miri Make a Porno… the WO supports Kevin Smith), Heroes and Jersey Girl Ali Larter, the always sexy Natalie Portman and Julia Stiles, and finally the beautiful Brazilian Sabrina Sato. Keira Knightley slides out of the top ten into the bubble, but her stay shouldn’t be long. Gracyanne Barbosa, Eliza Dushku, Brooke Burke and Jessica Alba remain in bubble limbo from last month. What will December bring?

Stay tuned for the December poll later this week. Also this month or next depending on our scheduling meeting… The WO Poll Women for 2008. Stay tuned.

I Think I Love You....

I think I love you….

"I totally plan to go back into acting once the strike stops," Reid told Pop Tarts last week at Eva Longoria-Parker's Padres Contra El Cancer's 8th Annual "El Sueno De Esperanza" benefit gala in Hollywood. "The economy is so bad right now that people are afraid to put money back into acting. Even the shows that seem new, they really shot six months ago. So when it's all back up again, I will go back into it. That's my heart," she said.

Oh Tara…… Seriously, does it get more delusional than this? We here at WO headquarters don’t pretend to be in the know on all things Hollywood, but I’m fairly confident in saying that the writers’ strike is indeed over and has been for quite some time (ed- SAG has a meeting Oct 18th to decide future, and we know that’s not what she was talking about). I love that Tara Reid has decided to continue her own personal strike in that precious little head of hers, and that is the reason why she isn’t working right now. It's not that she CANT get a job people, it’s about principles… and she has got ‘em… loads of ‘em. Smarts? Not so much.

I am willing to overlook such things. Because baby likes to party and you KNOW she is fun time. The downside (of course) is that she is already over 30. Which means, with her lifestyle she only has two years (tops) before she turns into a 3rd shift bar whore. Some might even say she has reached that level. I am not one of those people. Yet. That time is probably coming… and coming soon. But, I think she has another run in her still. And I will be anxiously waiting for it….Worst Case? There is a Cinemax movie in her future… so either way we are winners.


PROOF: There is no god.

A lot of time has passed from our original article on Wednesday, March 12th, 2008, and I can assure you a lot has changed. Pam Babcock, who may be better off forgetting the story that made her famous, is back in the news, and not for the reasons the public would hope. No she did not grow around a toilet again; in fact she was released from a hospital after a few months of treatment.

The reason she was in the news was because of her pathetic let-my-girl-live-in-the-bathroom-for-two-years boyfriend Kory McFarren. He received probation for the incident, but again this is not why we bring the couple up.

You see… Kory McFarren proved there is no god. How is this possible? Not only did this douche bag win the lottery. He did it twice. According to the AP article (click here), “A Kansas man whose girlfriend was physically stuck to the toilet in their home wins $20,000 in the state Lottery, for the second time this year. Kory McFarren cashed in his winning $2 Bonus Crossword ticket…”

Thank you, Kory. We were all wondering what happens in the afterlife. Now we know. Nothing.

The WO Poll - October 08

I beg all of your forgiveness. I know how obsessed you all are with the WO Poll, because I know how obsessed we are. It is late, and I apologize. You can stop sending the hate mail now. Let’s get it started….

1. (2) Jennifer Love Hewitt – It’s a little known fact, but before the WO Poll existed in reality, JLH was our go to girl. Number one in all of our hearts, the WO Queen was knocked off by Kristen Bell in the creation of the first recorded poll. Jennifer returns to greatness this month, and the majority of WO Headquarters is glad. Over the course of the year she has fluctuated, but the new found body has found her back to the top. We still love you J.Love.

2. (1) Kristen Bell – The Queen is dead… long live the Queen… I think more than anything Kristen’s slip comes from lack of exposure. Sure she’s around, but not around enough. Don’t get too upset if you’re in Ms. Bell’s corner, nine months in the top spot is quite the feat. She isn’t disappearing from the list anytime soon, so we’ll just chalk up this fall to the re-emergence of Ms. Love Hewitt.

3. (3) Elisha Cuthbert – Holding steady in the number three spot we have Elisha. Still hot and still on the list. The only problem I’m running into is something to fill up the rest of this space…. Forget it. Let’s just look at Elisha. On a rare side note, it should be stated that points wise the top three women are far ahead of the rest, with a huge point drop off. There was a lot of movement this week, starting with…

4. (NR) Summer Glau – Summer bypasses the bubble, and shoots straight into the number four spot this month. The Sarah Connor Chronicles are back on, and she is smoking in the print ads. If the robots that rise up and take over the world look like this… the WO might have to join their side in the revolution. You may say, “Seriously?!? Robots over real live breathing flesh?” I would reply, “Look at her. ‘Nuff said.

5. (6) Keira Knightley – Up a spot this month we find Miss Period Piece herself. I’m still waiting on Bend It Like Beckham 2. I got the script all planned out in my head, and it doesn’t involve her fighting over an Irish coach. So, Hollywood if you’re listening… get in touch with my people.

6. (8) Nastia Liukin – Alright look… Yes. She’s young (but legal), and has a lot of future potential. We here at the WO are just extremely impressed with athletes, and we have no doubt in our minds that her tiny frame could brutalize any of us in a fight. Not that it would come to that. Exceptional women not only scare us at times, but fascinate us. She’s got the Wheaties box and the medals to back up any detractors that think she shouldn’t be on the list. We hope she has a long bright future in whatever she does, and we are sure she will with the endorsement dollars she’s pulling in right now.

7. (5) Mandy Moore – What happened Mandy? I’ll tell you... Where are you? The last time we heard about you, you were rushing to the bedside of injured famous-overrated-nobody DJ AM. We respect you for that. It shows loyalty, to friends in times of need. Still that’s all we’ve heard in forever. Give Michael Stipe a call. The world needs a Saved 2. While you’re on the phone with him, ask him if REM is going to return to it’s college rock roots ever. Some of us don’t like the trying-to-hard-artsy direction they’ve gone. We miss you Mandy.

8. (10) Blake Lively – Up two spots is the woman that Buford continues to campaign for, Ms. Lively. She has been on the bubble/list boarder for quite some time, and looks like she’s gaining strength in the poll. This is a good thing for all parties involved. At the next WO Editorial Staff Meeting, maybe we can get Buford to do an in-depth review/piece on Blake and the rest of the Gossip Girl cast. I think it could be a classic.

9. (NR) Megan Fox – So she wanted to date a stripper. I’m sure you all know this by now, believe me the WO staff knows this by now. Could there be anything hotter than Megan Fox in the arms of a woman? No. Brian Austin Green does not count, because after doing some research he is technically a man. Ms. Fox gives us hope (much like Jennifer Love Hewitt, Mandy Moore and Kristen Bell) that any man has a shot at her. Side note: WO story idea. Hollywood vixens and the nobodies they date. I like it.

10. (7) Katherine Heigl – Katherine Heigl is dropping like a rock. She actually tied for tenth place with Eliza Dushku, but the tie breaker came down to who had a higher rank in the previous poll. It was the only fair way to do it, because I believe Dushku has more potential for upward movement than Heigl at this point. If this is all I have to complain about, the list is not in bad shape. Katherine Heigl is still amazingly hot. No one can argue that.

The Bubble:
So here we are talking about the girls who continue to scrap (Ed. I don’t see no girls, Kenny…) for a spot on the prestigious WO Poll. We already talked about Dushku’s (Sept 08 #9) fall from the list in a tie breaker, what about Mila Kunis (Sept 08 #4) who took the biggest fall this week? I’m sure she’ll be back as well. Stuck in the bubble this week are the always lovely Olivia Munn, HeroesHayden Panettiere, Anne Hathaway and Gracyanne Barbosa. These are all women who have tasted greatness before, and are not ready to give up. Returning to the bubble from her maternity leave is Jessica Alba, who is rocking a post birth body like never before seen. Joining her for their first weeks in the bubble are the ridiculously hot Nicky Whelan, Brooke Burke and the original-Sarah-Palin, Miss Tina Fey.

That’s all for October, and we’ll see you on time in November.

A Jersey Girl's Birthday

This quick respect piece was deferred to me by Buford. He says that I’m good at throwing the quick crap together. Unfortunately there is no easy and/or quick way to write about this woman.

Growing up in my (our) part of Jersey there were a few things guys could agree on, yet the two that automatically come to mind are our love of soccer and Elisabeth Shue. On the 6th of October in the year of 1963, Delaware produced its finest product ever, and quickly gave this goddess to the only state that could contain her. Elisabeth Shue is the definition of Jersey Girl.

She played high school soccer on a boy’s team, due to the lack of girl teams at the time. She stole all of our hearts as Ali Mills in The Karate Kid. She would continue to do it again as Chris Parker in Adventures in Babysitting, Jordan Mooney in Cocktail, Jennifer Parker in Back to the Future II and III (sorry Claudia Wells), Leaving Las Vegas, The Saint, Palmetto, Hollow Man and Hamlet 2. How can one woman find her way into so many guy-flicks? Okay... so maybe a few of them aren’t exactly guy flicks… who’s paying attention that closely?

I can’t think of a single moment where Elisabeth Shue wasn’t hot. Think about it. Wines mature nicely, but they have nothing on Ms. Shue. So… she’s married to an Oscar winning Guggenheim, who helped Al Gore try to save the world, and makes all of us here at WO Headquarters look like complete scumbags. I know… I know… it wasn’t that hard, but even when we don’t have a chance, it’s nice to pretend.

Now stopping myself before I begin to write a thesis style post… The WO just wanted to wish Ms. Shue a very very happy belated birthday. Thank you for all you have given us over the years. I don’t think the WO would exist without you.

They picked a Morrissey song? Seriously?

Everyday is like Sunday”…..After The Smiths broke up, Morrissey moved into a solo career and sang this song about, well what all of Morrissey’s songs are about… life being miserable and just trudging along to the finish line. God, is it any wonder that his music was the anthem for teen angst in the 80’s? I believe it's also quite popular with the closeted Mexican youth of today (I read this in Esquire). I'm not judging... well, I might be, but that’s a different story. I suppose it shouldn’t be shocking, I mean, he is talented. He is just mostly depressing. I still have Smiths songs on my computer, so I guess I’m just pointing out the obvious. I don’t know. I didn’t really write this to bash Morrissey; I guess I still like him. I have been humming the song to myself for a couple of weeks now, so it’s not that I think its crap, but that brings me to my point……

For those of you that live in caves and aren’t aware, the NFL season started a few weeks ago. Needless to say there are endless commercials on Fox, CBS, ESPN, etc for the NFL, and specifically the NFL Network. The NFL Network is a channel owned and operated by the National Football League. I didn’t think this channel had a chance. I was wrong. Anyway, they are pimping the channel everywhere they can… the ‘theme’ song for the channel??? Yes, its Morrissey’s ‘Everyday is Like Sunday’. I was… ummmmm… confused? I don’t know what I thought when I heard it. It’s ridiculous. Granted, they only sing the part where he says ‘Everyday is Like Sunday’ and I get that, but the song actually isn’t saying that Sunday is a good thing… he is saying that Sundays suck… and that is how everyday feels to him. Not exactly the message they are going for, right?

With that said, I have a few issues:
1. Morrissey/Smiths fans aren’t really the demo they are going for, are they? I hope not…because I don’t think that would work out well. From what I remember, the vast majority of Morrissey fans like to sit around and talk about how the world is pointless. I can’t see them wearing cheeseheads or carrying D-Fence signs.
2. If they aren’t going for that demo and they just liked the line of the song… was this like a joke by the advertising company that pitched the idea? A bunch of ad guys in their mid 30’s that got picked on by the jocks in high school, said ‘We can TOTALLY win now, let’s make the f-ing SONG of the NFL a Morrissey song!’ So they went to the very guys that stuffed them in lockers and dropped this on them… and it wasn’t Motley Crue or Zeppelin so they had no idea. If this it what happened, that would probably be the greatest thing ever in the history of advertising.
3. Morrissey was such an anti establishment bitch in his heyday, has he finally turned to the darkside and starting selling his songs for commercial use (and legitimate profit)? I think that makes me sad on some level (we will call this level, annoying teen Buford)…but, on the other hand I am all about making as much money as you can (grown up Buford). I don’t believe in artistic integrity. I mean, he wrote the song and it became popular 20 years ago… its not like HE changed the meaning. That was done by some slick ad execs on Madison Avenue. I don’t know though, I figured he was destined to be just a cult icon… and not a corporate slut. I guess this proves that ‘selling out’ is inevitable if you want to continue on in that business. This is something that should be pointed out to all the stupid emo kids that make me want to homeschool my children.

I just can't see these guys listening to 'Louder than Bombs', can you?

Barry Watched the 60th Emmy Awards

I noticed a few things about the Emmys that I wanted to share. Sure it’s not an eloquent opening, but I really don’t care.

Side note: I really wanted to edit out the accidental rhyme, but part of the beauty of the WO is the willingness of it’s contributors to jump on the grenade or perhaps under the bus. I should be slapped for that rhyme. I’m just going to let it sit there, and torture myself with it. I really really do hate it. Anyway back to the blog.

Tina Fey is up first. What can one say about Tina? Ms. Fey is hot, smart, funny and just an all around perfect woman. Can people please stop comparing her to Sarah Palin? After all Sarah Palin is none of the above. Why? Have you ever heard Palin during an interview? Not a speech prepared by a team of people trained to shape her image. I’m talking about a legit interview. I honestly think my dog is smarter than her. Tina Fey is amazing. Sarah Palin is a governor of a state no one cares about. Stop the comparisons.

Moving on…. It’s time to scold the Emmy writers. Oscars, Grammys, Mtv Whatever Awards, etc… please take note. You can’t write. You unfunny C’s ruin everything. Why do you torture us year after year with your flat humor? I blame Sean Penn. Sean… Chris Rock was hilarious. Maybe because you don’t have a sense of humor you have to go and be an ass, but don’t ruin it for the rest of us. Same goes to Jordan Sparks. Jordan, no one cares about your opinion. You snaked a career via an ‘effin reality show. So the Jonas Brothers wear promise rings, and someone made fun of them. Big deal. I think the more humorous aspect of the Jonas Brothers wearing promise rings is the fact that they can have almost any girl now, but by the time they’re ready to get busy… their record will be in the 99cent bin and no one would ever consider ‘effing them. Especially now that we realize they can’t defend themselves, and need Jordan Sparks to stand up for them.

Along the same lines, who likes Josh Groban? Seriously? Can someone please make this over dramatic ass stop? Please?

Sorry… back to the writers. You all suck. Give your paychecks back now. You are a disgrace to every writer that was on strike last year.

Finally (and the main reason for this post), the WO’s dreams almost came true. Jennifer Love Hewitt and Hayden Panettiere present an award together. Well that may not be entirely accurate. The dream is to be in a Hewitt-Panettiere sandwich, but lets put that aside for now (perhaps that’s a whole other blog post). Amanda Beckett and Claire Bennet on stage at the same time? Be still my heart. Finally award shows seem to be throwing straight males a bone. It was a beautiful moment, and I nearly cried out of joy. What award did they announce? No clue. All I heard at that moment where birds and choirs of angels. Buford felt the same way, considering it was mentioned in the first email he sent me Monday. The WO thanks the Emmys for that. It was truly the only way to celebrate the 60th anniversary.

Man Crush...First? Last? We will see...

Someone mentioned on Barry's Facebook that we didn't have a man list to complement our Monthly WO Poll... So, we gave it a shot. We're all about keeping it fair...I don't know if this is what she had in mind, but what the hell? It passed the time...and I barely questioned my sexuality at all putting this together! In no particular order, here it is:

Matthew McConaughey - The guy has parlayed a supporting character role in a movie from 15 years ago into a career and lifestyle. Or did his lifestyle create the role of Wooderson? Either way, I love this guy. Even his stupid movies are enjoyable to me (and really, that is most of them.) I also love the fact that he was able to successfully avoid bad press after smoking weed and playing the bongos naked. Could you imagine if that was anyone else? Seriously…this guy gets a pass from EVERYONE.

Seth Green - Seth Green is gold... even if it's gold shit.” Barry sent me that in an email. And it really sums up Seth Green. Even the crappiest show or movie he has done is totally watchable, just for his scenes if nothing else. Plus, he was in The Byrds of Paradise with JLH. Fortunately, working with JLH did not help Scott Wolf or Matthew Fox make the list.

Bruce Campbell - The B movie legend himself. Bruce Campbell brings the goods and is just awesome in everything. I’m pretty sure you could just roll up to him at a bar and start talking to him too. I’m watching him on Burn Notice every week and I’m digging it. Hell, I feel like I need to re-watch Army of Darkness and Escape from LA tonight.

Sam Elliott – I’m pretty sure there should be a picture of Sam in the dictionary next to the term ‘Bad Ass’. I have yet to see him in a movie where he wasn’t the coolest guy in it. Hell, I watched Ghost Rider (three times!) just because of Sam. Speaking of which; how did Nick Cage screw that movie up so bad? That movie almost HAD to be awesome. I’m angry again.

Giovanni Savarese – Probably the main reason we here at the WO still believe that Metro (The Red Bulls) are something to follow. Came out of nowhere in the inaugural season scored a bunch of goals and just made the first few seasons worth watching. He isn’t playing or working for the team any longer, but he is still in our hearts. Sidenote, Barry and I have met more than one celebrity in our day. Gio is the only one that turned us into little school girls when we were introduced to him.

Clint Eastwood – This guy has been kicking ass and taking names for decades. I’m afraid if he wasn’t on this list that he might come find us at the WO headquarters and just end us. You do NOT f-with Clint. Period.

Kevin Spacey - American Beauty, The Usual Suspects, Seven, he’s from Jersey, questionable sexuality…how can he NOT be on this list? I liked him in the new Superman movie too…even if I thought that new Superman movie kind of sucked.

Tommy Lee Jones – Another one of the ‘tough guys’ of Hollywood. Always cool in his movies and in interviews. I loved him in the Fugitive. Sam Gerard was just as tough as it gets. Hell, they made a sequel based on his character. They knew what was up. Big fan of all of his work (Yes, even Under Siege)…I also find it amusing that he probably has tons of awkward pictures of Al Gore getting colored on or tea bagged after ‘late nights’ at Harvard bars. And yes, Tommy is apparently wicked smaht too.

Johnny Depp – I don’t think much needs to be said about Johnny. So, I will just tell a little story instead. I was 18 years old and I was getting a tattoo. I wanted to get the same tattoo that Johnny had (the Indian head, not the wino(na) forever tattoo). Anyway, I thought it was awesome. I’m part Indian (allegedly), it’s perfect. Tattoos are supposed to mean something. So the Indian head would work two fold….Celebrate my (alleged) heritage and honor my secret man crush. So, I get there and I find the tattoo I want. The problem is its 300 bucks. I’m 18 and do not have 300 dollars, not even close…plus, my parents HATE tattoos, so I couldn’t very well ask them. Damn, I guess I wasn’t supposed to get the same tattoo as Johnny. So I found this tribal-esque Phoenix. 75 bucks. Done. I’m 18 and I have my tat and everything is awesome. Except a few years later I see it on someone else. It’s on someone from another show on Fox. Yes. I now have the same tattoo as Brian Austin Green. I guess it could have been worse. I could have gotten the same tattoo as David Faustino.

David Wright - He'll consistently give you a .300 average, with 30 HRs and 100 RBIs, he'll play an almost flawless third base, he's accommodating to fans and media, and he does everything with a smile (the ladies tell me he's easy on the eyes, too). In a world where professional athletes are aloof and self-centered (read "assholes"), David is one of those guys who "gets it". He's a throwback to a simpler time where players cared more about championships, teammates and fans than they did about paychecks. He's also a white guy, which is becoming increasingly rare these days. Where did all those guys go, anyway?


Heath Ledger - I think Heath had a chance to be something big. He made some really good movies, seemed like a down to earth guy, and (obviously) liked to party. Plus, he even tried to make gay cowboys cool…which didn’t really work out, but at least he was a top, right? I haven’t seen the Dark Knight yet, but Barry gives it rave reviews. I will always remember him from Monster’s Ball and 10 Things I Hate About You. Monster’s Ball because he showed he was a ridiculous talent and 10 things for introducing some of us to the glory that is Julia Stiles. Also, he nailed an Olsen Twin! That gets you on the list.

Steve McQueen – Does Steve still get the love he should on being the ultimate Man’s man? Probably not anymore…which is sad. This guy did it all... and he did it all with a Marlboro hanging out his mouth. For Bullitt alone, the guy needs to be mentioned every time a list like this is created.

So....There you have it...or First Man Crush list. Let us know if we left anyone off... or if we have completely gone over to the gay side...

The WO Poll - September 08

Are you ready to meet the women of September? I know I am. The poll is late this week, but sometimes life gets in the way. We’ll do our best to keep it updated in the future. Now on to the list…

1. (1) Kristen Bell – Another month for Veronica Mars in the number one spot. She’s starting to lose steam in the votes, but with Heroes coming back (is she even still on that show) it could help her maintain position. Is Fanboys ever going to be released? Why do they insist on keeping Kristen Bell in Leia’s Metal Bikini away from us?

2. (4) Jennifer Love Hewitt – It was an extremely busy August for Miss Jennifer Love. First of all, she is smoking (hot not cigarettes). She lost a few pounds that the press hounded her about earlier in the year. Let’s be honest nobody at The WO was going to kick her out of bed, but words can’t even express how smoking (again… hot not the cigarettes) she is right now. In other Amanda Beckett news, JLH announced to the world that she wished she “had been nude from the time I was 12 until I was 28.” (LINK HERE) Well if you want to change that to 18-28 (keeping it legal -ed.), I’m sure there is not a straight man alive who doesn’t wish the same thing. Could the muse behind the list find her way back to the top? We’ll see.

3. (2) Elisha Cuthbert – Taking a hit from J-Love’s reemergence Ms. Cuthbert drops a spot. Had she announced that she wanted to stay nude as well (hint hint –ed.), I’m sure it would have titillated us enough to keep her in second place. Let’s not kid ourselves. She’s still beautiful, and just being nominated for the WO List puts you in a high position in the world of hotness. Elisha is also returning to 24. Our TV lineup is filling up quickly.

4. (3) Mila Kunis – Mila drops a spot as well this month, thanks to Jennifer Love Hewitt. Why do we love Mila so much? The first reason is she just seems like a cool chick. The second? She gets us crazy amounts of hits. I assume the second reason is directly related to the first, and all of us, readers and fans alike, can agree that she is a sexy woman. Cast as Mona Sax in the upcoming Max Payne film, I can assure you she’ll get continued exposure and keep the fanboys drooling.

5. (5) Mandy Moore – Staying strong in the five spot, without much going on, we have Mandy Moore. She showed up on TV’s Stand Up To Cancer, but we are truly hoping for more exposure. The WO hates cancer, but loves Mandy Moore. We’d love to see her in a lighter mood. Pssst… Mandy. We like mixed martial arts as well, if you want to send us an invite... just saying.

6. (9) Keira Knightley – From nine to six in one month. She was the biggest mover besides those who dropped off the list completely, and the women returning or new this month. Why? I’d love to write something here, but I honestly have no clue. I don’t remember seeing her lately. Better to not over explain. She’s still smoking, and forces us to watch period pieces. How could you not like that in a woman?

7. (7) Katherine Heigl – Staying strong at number seven is Ms. Heigl. Still hot, but doesn’t have much going on besides The Ugly Truth in post-production. We could see her start to slip.

8. (NR) Nastia Liukin – Bypassing the bubble and making her first appearance on the list…. At 5’3’’… 100lbs… bringing the gold back to the United States… Nastia Liukin! (pause for applause) It’s no easy feat to win gold, and it’s not easy to make the WO list either. This woman has it all, and she’s not going away. The girl has Cover Girl ads lined up, Vanilla Star Jeans is releasing signature model Nastia Liukin Gold Jeans, two publishers are scrapping it out with each other to sign her to a two book deal, she makes the cover of the Wheaties box and she’s seen hanging out all over NYC during Fashion Week. She may not stay on the list forever, but welcome to glory Nastia. Congrats on the medals as well.

9. (8) Eliza Dushku – Ms. Dushku drops a spot because she hasn’t won a gold medal… yet. Does anyone know what the word is on Dollhouse? I’m lazy, and haven’t checked in awhile. She’s still hot. She stays on the list another month. We can let that speak for her.

10. (NR) Blake Lively – That’s right folks. She’s back from the bubble, and Gossip Girl has a new season. I wonder how The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2 went… I should ask Buford later. Beautiful as ever, we end the list this month with Blake. That’s not bad… not bad at all.

The Bubble: Crashing out of the top ten this month are Olivia Munn (Aug #6) and Gracyanne Barbosa (Aug #10). Other women in the bubble this month include Reby Sky, Anne Hathaway and Hayden Panettiere (Heroes is coming back). Jessica Alba makes an appearance, and word on the street is that the baby is out and she’s looking sexy. Could she find herself back on the list soon? I assume so. Jess Weixler makes an appearance on the bubble, but without any real fame can it last? Still, we love her this month. Rounding out the bubble for September is Sarah Palin. With a slight resemblance to Tina Fey, she’s just MILF-tastic. Vice President worthy? Who knows? But we’d shoot off some rounds with her any day.

That’s all for this month. Questions? Comments? You know where to reach us.
