Her body is proof that she is hawt.
Probably because nobody watches Body of Proof.
I follow her and she seems to be a sweetie, but I keep thinking about her poor shlub rich ex-hubby who paid to make her up and have carreer only to have her run off with the Star Trek lech.
We've seen her depth of acting skills on such as on Leverage. She can play anything from A to C.
Didn't he abuse her and try to put her in sex clubs?
Ryan was more of a RICH clueless nerd. He had no idea what would win her back so he tried....
Ah yes. Jack Ryan.
Both he and Jeri tried very hard to keep those allegations about sex clubs and such out of the public, citing concerns about their children. They felt the charges and counter-charges they made against each other back during the divorce weren't really a matter for everyone to know. Unfortunately, even though the Ryan's divorce papaers were sealed by court order, those unproven allegations became a target when Jack Ryan tried to make a US Senate run to succed retiring Illinois Republican Senator Peter Fitzgerald.
Republican Jack Ryan's Democrat opponent for the US Senate seat? Chicago activist and State Senator Barack Obama, whose campaign was lead by strategist David Axelrod.
Despite stenuous opposition from both Jeri Ryan and Jack Ryan, a California court ordered the divorce records unsealed so reporters could look at those allegations.
Given the media frenzy around sex club allegations and a Hollywood beauty, the former 1989 Miss Illinois and Seven-of-Nine Jeri Ryan, Ryan's campaign was stunned by the insatiable press interest in the titillating allegations. As I recall, Jeri even made some press appearances with her ex-husband to show her support, but their effort to dampen the tabloid-like media excitement didn't work.
Jack Ryan dropped out of the race soon after.
Chicago politics: it's a blood sport.
Obama was indeed star struck. Right place, right time.
I hope you don't mind feedback from a newbie. A buddy of mine mentioned this thread in passing so I thought I'd join the fray. Aside from the periodic detours on a specific show or Kathy Griffin, which I don't want to revisit, there was a mention of limited hottie talent in the plus 40 category. I'd argue this as there isn't a *lack* of 40+ plus hotties but rather so few on currently popular shows watched by the majority. For example, Diane Lane (48) is a uber hottie but not on TV. Ditto Elizabeth Berkley (40). IMO, both get better looking with age.
An interesting subject-related link is currently found on IMDb.
That said, I think you're missing a few within the parameters mentioned.
As I understand the rules, she:
- Must be over 40
- Must be in the cast of a current TV show (or recently left)
- Any group of images posted to support your point must include a photo of the actress (post age 40 and relatively recent).
- No one has mentioned Heidi Klum. If you post Padma, Heidi can't be ignored. (no photo needed as she's plastered all over web, right?)
- No one has mentioned Telenovela or daytime soap. Plenty of hotties there.
But here are a few others that IMO should fall into same recognition as some names previously mentioned. While I realize that my listing models in TV roles may not be fair to the actresses, but what's fair got to do with it?
Bridget Moynahan - 41 soon to be 42 (Currently on Blue Bloods. Aside from her roles on Sex in the City as Big's Wife "Natasha", Coyote Ugly and I,Robot, she's also a model and probably best known as Tom Brady's baby mama. That in itself confirms her hottie factor.)
Carrie-Anne Moss - 45 (Currently on Vegas. She's probably best known as "Trinity" in the Matrix movies.)
Aisha Tyler - 42 (Former model currently on The Talk and does voice-over on the animated series, "Archer". She's probably best known previously on Talk Soup, The Ghost Whisperer or as Ross' girlfriend on Friends.)
Holly Robinson-Peete - 48 (Recently left The Talk, ironically replaced by aforementioned Aisha Tyler. However, Holly is currently seen on a TV commercial for Nestle Instant Breakfast and has a recurring role on Mike and Molly. She's probably best known for her role on TV series "21 Jump Street" but that was a LONG time ago and she's still hot!!! -- It's hard to believe she's that old.)
Constance Marie - 47 (Currently on Switched at Birth. She's probably best known as George Lopez' wife on the George Lopez Show)
...and to circumvent the whole Lucy Liu debate, I'll offer up Ming-Na Wen who turns 50 this year. (ER/Eureka/2 & Half Men/Stargate/etc.)
Mary McCormack - 44 (In Plain Sight which just ended its series run and The West Wing. She's plays the plain-jane type but in real life she's HOT!!!)
...FWIW, talking head Soledad O'Brien (CNN) is 46 and she's a smoking hot GND cougar hottie. IMO, way hotter than Katie Couric.
My contributions for the soon to be 40 list . . .
Tricia Helfer of BSG fame turns 39 next month.
Poppy Montgomery -38 (Currently on Unforgettable, previously Without A Trace)
Marsha Thomason - 37 (Currently on White Collar, previously on Las Vegas)
Upon attempting to post, I just realized that as a newbie, I'm unable to post the images and the link to the IMDb discussion.
Sorry but you'll have to look them up.
Final Thought: As an aside, I had no idea Pauly Perrette was 44. They're definitely playing Abby younger than real. It was cute for the first 5 seasons but it's beginning to get a little old, especially at her age. The thought of greying pigtails is not "Pretty in Goth". OTOH, if Abby figured out that she's getting a little long in the Goth tooth, I'd imagine that a style make-over session with Ziva David might turn out to be a very interesting change in viewpoint.
Again I hope you don't mind a newbie's rambling. I'll stop here.
May be bending the rules, but this was Raquel Welch at 41.
Enjoyed your post... a lot. Some nice choices there. (Plus, I appreciate the formatting: you made your post easy to read with bullet points, italics, and bolding. Oh, and not a typo, either! )
It was lame. No photos.
Waiting on the spam in 5...4...
Ah, yes. His self-confessed shortcoming. Yeah, photos would have satisfied the prurient interest in us guys.
Well, there was one typo:
Including her in a list of "Hawtest 40+" must have been a typo.
I had no idea Aisha Tyler was 42...
How could anyone leave Tiffani Thiessen off the soon to be 40 hottie list? She turned 39 a month or so ago.
There's a soon to be 40 hottie list?
In Robbzpc's lengthy post he has a section of soon to be 40's. Tiffani was not on that list.
I think the soon to be list should just include those that will be 40 like this year. Not those that turned 39 this year.
I highly appreciate the fact that, even though he's a newbie with only one post, it was on topic, and not posted for the express purpose of gaining access to post spam.
