Female Hottie: Queen Latifah
Our first hottie for the week is representing the bigger ladies. Queen Latifah started her career as a rapper, but has since evolved into an Academy Award nominated actress and does more singing that rapping these days. The queen is living proof that women don't have to be stick thin to be beautiful and/or talented.
Male Hottie: Mark Wahlberg
Remember Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch? Well, respected actor Mark Wahlberg was Marky Mark? Seems like a lifetime ago, huh? Since putting Mark Mark behind him, Wahlberg has gone on to act in such hit films as Boogie Nights, The Italian Job, The Perfect Storm, and this season's critically acclaimed The Lovely Bones. I'm sure more than a couple of my female readers will enjoy this choice.
Random Hottie from a movie or TV show seen this week: Amy Yasbeck
Robin Hood: Men in Tights brings us this week's random hottie, Amy Yasbeck. If you're not familiar with her, you may have seen her as Chelsea's mom in an episode of That's So Raven, or on the big screen in The Mask, Pretty Woman, or the first two Problem Child movies, starring her late husband, John Ritter. Currently, she is taking a break from acting to focus on her family. Hopefully she'll return soon.
MILF: Lea Thompson
Perhaps best known as Marty McFly's mother in the Back to the Future trilogy, or Caroline from Caroline in the City, Lea Thompson captured many a man's heart in the late 80s and early 90s.Unfortunately for her, after Caroline went off the air, her career all but dried up (she says she took time off to raise her two girls). It does appear that she is on the upswing, though, with a few upcoming movies to be released later thus year.
Classic/Retro Hottie: Shelly Long
Best known for her role as Diane on Cheers, Shelley Long was one of the most beautiful women on television in the early 80s. Similar to Lea, though, her career dried up a bit and she has had trouble getting work. Some other roles he has had since leaving the show have been in Sabrina: The Teenage Witch, Dr. T. & the Women, The Brady Bunch Movie, and most recently on Modern Family (not sure if its aired, yet). One of things that has struck me is that she is 60. For some reason, I thought she was in her late 40s-early 50s, when I last saw her. Either way, she is still a classic beauty.
