Eye Candy 5/2

Female Hottie: Ashley Graham

Our first hottie for the week is currently at the center of a controversy because a couple of networks refuse to air her Lane Bryant commercial because they feel it shows too much skin. I will be blogging about this before the end of the week, just haven't gotten around to it, yet. Plus-size model Ashley Graham is quite fetching, though. In a world where it appears as if women have to be stick thin to be beautiful, it is great to see a real woman with real curves and real beauty.

Male Hottie: Josh Groban

This week's male hottie comes to us from the music world. Josh Groban isn't as well known as say Usher, Sting, Justin Timberlake, and others, but he does garner respect. In the short amount of time he's been around, Josh has released 5 albums, 4 of which made it to the top with 2 #1s and a #2. Women swoon over this guy's voice for some strange reason.

Random hottie from a movie or TV show seen this week: Holly Valance

Our random hottie comes from the God-awful movie National Lampoon's Pledge This!. Holly Valance is an Australian actress/singer who is best known in the states for her roles in Taken and D.O.A.: Dead or Alive, as well as guest appearances on Valentine, Entourage, CSI: NY, a memorable 5 episode stint on Prison Break. Who knows what the future holds for her, but I'm hoping we see much more of her. Be on the lookout for her in 4 upcoming movies Luster, Red Herring, Surviving Georgia, Big Momma's Boy, as well as a return to TV at some point in time.

MILF: Gina Torres

Gina Torres is one of the most underrated actresses in Hollywood today, in my opinion. With roles in everything from Xena, Pushing Daisies, Cleopatra 2525, Firefly, Gossip Girl and her movie roles The Matrix Reloaded, The Matrix Revolutions, Serenity, I Think I Love My Wife, as well as voice work (mostly in Justice League cartoons), Gina has done everything but sing and dance. She and hubby Laurence Fishbourne welcomed a baby girl in 2007.

Classic/Retro Hottie: Bernadette Peters

Our classic hottie for this week is the divine Bernadette Peters. I honestly could not remember where I first saw until I did a little research and remembered that I first became aware of her in Annie. Bernadette has had some roles on both the big and small screen, but she is best known for her time on Broadway, much in the way we think of Kristin Chenoweth today. I never realized it before, but she lent her voice to Rita in the "Rita and Runt" segments of Animaniacs. The woman can do it all.Currently she is working with her numerous charities and writing a second children's book.

Ha, it's uncanny that you have Gina Torres on this post, because I was just Googling yesterday to see who Lawrence Fishburne was married to! lol
I was Googling "Lawrence Fishburne sexiest voice" because I just think that he has the sexiest voice in the world! ;)

Gina has a great voice too, and if you are able to recognize it, she can be heard doing voiceovers on a ton of commercials. Until yesterday, I didn't even know they were married to each other....

Two sexy voices in the house! They need to make an audio sex tape! ;)
