I thought about just including this in the Quick Hits, but in the end decided that a blow to the ego this massive needs its very own post. I don't know if you remember last year at this time? No? Me either. But apparently askmen.com does this Top 99 most desirable women in the world and they do it at this time of the year. This most desirable woman is not to be confused with Esquire's sexiest or People's sexiest or whatever Maxim and the other magazines call their list. No, this is an entirely separate list and is allegedly entirely fan driven with no publicist input.
Well last year, Katherine Heigl was voted the most desirable woman on the list. When she heard about it she probably did the Mendes Starbucks Strut. It's amazing though what happens when your show starts doing poorly, don't have a hit movie that is watched by a bunch of horny guys, and can't count on your publicist to help. You drop in the list. You drop really far down the list. You drop so far down that only a last minute online campaign by your assistants and husband and TR Knight saves you from completely dropping off the list. When you go from #1 to #81 in one year you know that you had a really bad year.
I don't care who you are or how big your head and ego are, that is a massive blow. To go from being at the top of the world to competing with fictional cartoon characters for a spot in the most desirable has to hurt. Has to.
