Desperate Housewives Eva Longoria has scored again.Â Longoria remains the number oneÂ hottie in Maxim’s annual Hot 100 list for the second yearÂ running.
Maxim’s list names the mostÂ beautiful & successfulÂ women in film, TV, music, sportsÂ & fashion,Â or as they put it, thoseÂ who have “a tremendous amount of buzz surrounding them, undeniable beauty and a promise of greater things to come.”
Eva Longoria is the very first to receive the top hottie spot back-to-back. Which eitherÂ means she’s the sexiestÂ woman around or the girl knows her way around a bribe.Â Â Â Â Â
LongoriaÂ was ecstaticÂ with the honor saying,Â ”I was actually really shocked last year when I made the list and then to get it a second time in a row–I just couldn’t believe it.”
Here’s a sneak peak at the top ten Maxim hotties:
Notable omissions on this year’s list include Britney Spears- gee, I wonder why; new mom & Scientologist in-training Katie Holmes; Jennifer Lopez- if your husband grabs himselfÂ more thanÂ he does you,Â I think you get the bootÂ & Salma Hayek- she’ll always be in my top ten.
Longoria adds, “I would have voted all of our Housewives on the list.”Â Eva’s thought process on that one- “I would make Nicollette #99 & that evil bitch Teri at #100.”
Eva states that her beau Tony Parker is thrilled with the top hottie news, “He’s very proud. He thinks he’s with a beautiful girl every day, so for him, it’s you know, someone else solidifying what he already thinks.”
Sure, like a mirror or a set of eyeballs wasn’t enough.
Take a detailed peak at the full list here.
In a hilarious new turn of events, Denise Richards has launched thrown another blow at the estranged husband Charlie Sheen.Â Richards has begun development ofÂ a kids’ clothing line, one month afterÂ Sheen debuted his own collection of kidswear.Â Maybe the new Richards’ line should be called ‘KickAssWear’.
It’s funny isn’t it, the crazy couple are now taking their fight to the shopping malls and boutiques of America where their clothing lines will bitterly compete in the oh so lucrative children’s clothing market.
Bad boyÂ CharlieÂ launched his Sheen Kidz last month, we justÂ love to play around with those letter ‘z’s, whileÂ Denise has announced she is launchingÂ ’Kidtoure’ this summer.Â I think I still like KickAssWear.Â
Kidtoure will feature applique t-shirts for young girls and will be carried by posh little stores like Barney’s New York.Â Charlie & Denise’s children Sam, 2, & Lola, 11 month, have already been spotted sporting their mommy’s tie-dyed collection of t-shirts.Â
Maybe next they will take their battle to the streets, I’m thinking of a clothing line for pimps & sex workers.Â It could be called ‘I Just Might Kill You Wear by Charlie & Denise’.

“I can’t think of a better way to spend my mothers day,” Sarandon told reporters before taking the stage.Â
Code Pink, a women’s anti-war group, organized the 24-hour vigilÂ & anti-war protest.Â Sarandon joined Sheehan onstage at the end of the vigil.Â Susan read aloud two letters addressed to first lady Laura Bush, one she wrote herself and another penned by a woman from Oregon.Â Sarandon also brought a copy of the popular board game ‘Risk’ to be sent to Mrs. Bush along with the letters.Â You know, so she could have something entertaining to do if the letters were pretty boring.Â
Sarandon’s letter urged the first lady to press her husband to personally notify some mothers whose children died while serving in Iraq.
“Those moms praying as they wait for the phone to ring and they hear the voice of their child serving in Iraq,” Sarandon said to a crowd of perhaps 200 people. “Let him be the one to tell them that this week the call will not be coming.”
Leave it to Susan Sarandon to make my Mother’s Day celebrationÂ look pointless & insignificant.
Hollywood Tuna:Â Tyra Banks has always been a little scaryÂ
NickÂ Clooney was terrified when his son George Clooney dropped out of college and turned to an acting career.Â The Kentucky native quit college and headed to Los Angeles to give acting a try.Â His first major breakthrough was playing Rosanne Barr’s overbearing boss Booker Brooks on the long-running TV show Rosanne.
But George’s father Nick, newscaster & TV host, admits he feared his son wouldn’t succeed withoutÂ getting his college degree.Â He went so far as to plead & beg with George toÂ go back to school and complete his four-year degree, to be a newsman like him.Â
He recalls, “I thought that was terrible. I wasn’t worried about things like drugs. He knew those dangers. I didn’t want him to be a failure.
“I said, ‘Finish college. There are only 3,000 actors in the United States who make more than $50,000 a year, but there are 50,000 broadcasters making a good living.’
“But he was insistent he didn’t want to be a broadcaster like me. I don’t think it was my idealism that put him off. I think he didn’t want to go into an industry where he would constantly be compared to me.”
Both father & son recently visited the Darfur province trying to boost humanitarian efforts.Â
Dave Chappelle is still struggling to explain to his wife Elaine why he left behind a $50 millon contract from Comedy Central.Â While onÂ Late Night With Conan O’Brien last night, the comedian joked about how he’s still licking the salt off his wounds.Â Â
“My wife is still a little salty with me.Â She’s not mad at me, but don’t think you can walk away from $50 million and your wife is just going to be cool with it.”
Dave Chappelle has repeatedly defended his sudden retreat from his lucrative & popular Chappelle’s Show over the past few months, laughing over the claims that he is “crazy” and seekingÂ psychological help.
Chappelle & O’Brien joked about his swift exodus to Africa where he went immediately following his departure from Comedy Central’s Chappelle’s Show.
“When you go to Africa, especially your first time, you have this overwhelming feeling like you’re home,” he said. “I had a feeling of `man, this feels like home.’
“I think I felt that way because there was a McDonald’s in the airport.”

Vaughn praised Aniston by sayingÂ ”Jennifer’s great. She’s one of my favorite people.”
To which Oprah replied, “She’s one of mine, too.”
Vaughn pressed on with,Â ”Jennifer’s great. She’s just really smart and funny and easy to be with – very considerate. She’s great.”
And then Tom Cruise entered stage left and started jumping on couches saying, “Xenu be praised, I love Jennifer too!”
When OprahÂ questioned VinceÂ on the possibility of children he stated,Â ”I think (having children) takes a lot of focus, takes a lot of attention. I think it would be nice at some point to have a different priority. I think that time would come.Â But not any time in the near future for me. No, I have not talked about having kids with Jennifer.”
And chiding reports of their lavish wedding paid for by Oprah, Vince commented, “First we have to have the $8 million wedding.”
If it came down to a mud wrestling match who would win:Â VinceÂ Vaughn, Oprah Winfrey or Tom Cruise?Â I’m going to haveÂ to go with the Oprah,Â ever since The Color Purple, I knew she could pack aÂ punch like nobody’s business.Â

In a recent interview with Good Housekeeping, Cruise said his adoptedÂ Bella approved ofÂ Holmes right from the start.Â Â
“After I began dating Kate, Bella looked at me and said, ‘Don’t let this one go. She’s the one.’”
That’s pretty sweet and what you would really want to hear from your child about a potential new mate, but doesn’t it kinda sound like the 13-year-old has seen Casablanca too many times?
Cruise went on to reveal that he was smitten with Holmes early in their relationship, “I knew almost as soon as I met her. I thought, ‘I’m going to be with this woman.’ And then after a couple of hours, I thought, ‘I’m going to marry this woman.’ I just knew.
He just knew.Â He just knew who he was brainwashing next he means.Â
In other Cruise news, rumors have circulated that pal Jamie Foxx will be godfather to baby Suri.Â Foxx denies and stomps on this rumor saying, “It’s a rumor. I did give them a nice basket to congratulate them but I’m not Suri’s godfather.”
And that wraps up the Cruise / Holmes Roundup Update.

Britney Spears showed up lastÂ night at a taping ofÂ theÂ Late Show with David Letterman.Â Despite the fact that you normally, celebrity or no, have to book an appearance on Letterman weeks in advance, the pregnant star was able to tell all that she’s pregnant again.Â Didn’t everyone already know that by now, Brit?
Spears walked onto the show, as her song My Prerogative was being played by the Late Show band, and stated she was indeed pregnant, yet again.Â “Don’t worry Dave, it’s not yours.”
“Oh. Well, I think that’s good news for both of us,” Letterman joked.Â “So, we’ve established now that you are in fact pregnant, is that right?”
“Yes, sir,” she replied with wild call & applause from the audience. Letterman then took Spears’ hand and kissed it and probably whispered something to the effect of, “Get out while you can, Britney.Â K-Fed is nothing but a no-good red neck and we could really have something beautiful together, you and I.”

In two weeks we’ll have to say goodbye for a while to our friendly TV show Lost.Â But never fear, the season finale is said to be incredible, the best of the best, that is if you believe co-creatorÂ J.J. Adams.Â Â Â
AbramsÂ filled the ear of theÂ New York Post this week and said that some murky plotlines will finally make sense and the season’s last episode will basically just blow your mind open.
Not to toot hisÂ own horn or anything, butÂ Abrams states, “The ending of this year in Lost blows the ending of last season out of the water.
“It’s an incredible finale. You’ll see what happens, but I can tell you that a lot of it has been there and been building from the beginning of this season. It’s not out of the blue, but what happens at the very end of this year, for me, it’s the greatest finale I have ever heard.”
Wow, maybe he is tooting his own horn a bit.Â
Bruce Willis & Halle Berry are in the midst of filming the James Foley-directed psychological thriller Perfect Stranger.Â Filming is on schedule & everything’s going well with production, expect Willis appears to be blinded by BerryÂ on set.
Bruce said,Â ”I get all awkward. She’s beautiful. It’s almost like looking at an eclipse of the sun.Â You have to take a pin and poke it through a card and look at her through that.Â You could damage your retina.”
Bruce Willis has sought medical attention from professionals for his blinded retinas.Â It has now been announced by the medical world that one should avoid looking at Halle Berry at all costs, as looking directly at the vixen will cause permanent damage to your retina, a similar effect to that of looking into a solar eclipse.
Willis has apparentlyÂ taken this advice to heart and skipped out on the sex scene with Berry, leaving her to fake it on her own.Â Halle acted out the solo love scene by writhing around on a bed while the sound crew played a tape of Willis’ voice.Â
A set source says, “Halle wasn’t fazed performing solo. Although she, in effect, keeps her hands to herself, she is very convincing indeed in the love scenes.”
EditorsÂ then put the pair togetherÂ throughÂ computer technology, the first time this technique has been used for a sex scene.Â Duh, becauseÂ mostÂ folksÂ do not wishÂ to forgo the Halle Berry sex scene.Â But you know, maybe they should haveÂ used this technique for the Monster’s Ball Berry & Billy Bob Thornton sexÂ scene, as doing the tongue dance with Billy Bob sounds not so appealing.Â Â What was Jolie thinking with that anyway?
Lesson to be learned- equip yourself with high-intensity sunglasses before stealing a glace at Halle Berry, else your retina will suffer the consequences.Â
People reports that the former Beverly Hills, 90210 alum tied the marital knot with Canadian actor Dean McDermottÂ on a private island inÂ Fiji yesterday.Â The couple were the only attendees and both wore white and went barefoot, stark contrast with Spelling’s multi-million dollarÂ trip down the isleÂ to Charlie Shanian.
With McDermott’s divorce from Mary Jo EustaceÂ finalized in FebruaryÂ & Spelling’s divorce from Shanian finalized Apr. 20,Â the duo thought it was high time to go the marriage dance again.
Groom McDermott stated his love for Tori saying, “I’ve never had as much of a desire to get married and make a woman my wife as I’ve had with her.Â The feeling is overwhelming. We’re soul mates.”
The newlyweds met on the set ofÂ TV movie Mind Over Murder lastÂ year & got engagedÂ inÂ December.Â Notice the ink was dry on both of their divorces just this year, and they had already proposed.Â That’s an interesting approach.
“We’re so incredibly happy and in love. We cannot wait to start our lives together,” the couple said in a joint statement.
Dean McDermott has permanently expressed his devotion to Spelling through a tattoo on his wrist that readÂ ”Truly, Madly, Deeply, Tori,” while his shoulder features a portrait of the actress.Â How cute.Â So, does the truly, madly go back to the movie with Juliet Stevenson or the Savage Garden song?
Both Tori & DeanÂ haveÂ claimed their respective splits had nothing to do with either spouses, McDermott’s ex-wife MaryÂ Jo EustaceÂ isn’t buying it.Â She is already shopping for a book deal with the possible name of My Husband Left Me for Tori Spelling.Â I’d have to say that it is a fitting title.
In her book proposal, Eustace ridicules her husband of 12 years for leaving her just months after they adopted a baby girl.Â She also reveals that at the time McDemottÂ gotÂ tattoo Tori-fied, he didn’tÂ haveÂ enough money to pay for his electric bill.Â Well, when all else fails- run to DaddyÂ Aaron Spelling for money, right?Â
Wishing the merry newlyweds bliss & betting on a two-year marriage at most.

Nicole Kidman is stillÂ under the influence of Tom Cruise.Â KidmanÂ tells Ladies HomeÂ Journal,Â issue hitting stands tomorrow,Â that she’s still smitten with the Mission:Â Impossible star.Â The couple officially split in 2000, while Kidman was pregnant and who subsequently had a miscarriage.Â Â
Tom is now engaged to marry Katie, I mean Kate, Holmes & Nicole is engaged to country singer Keith Urban.Â But while Kidman has moved beyond her life with Cruise, she tells the Journal she still has feelings for the Scientologist.
“He was huge; still is. To me, he was just Tom, this lovely man, but to everybody else, he is huge. But he was lovely to me. And I loved him. I still love him.”
Nicole Kidman has always been very quiet & reserved regarding her split with Cruise.Â In one of the most revealing statements she says, “I knew I was going to get hit by something, but I think a divorce, and the demise of what your family is, is a little like a death in itself.”Â
Kidman is very carefulÂ these days who she lets intoÂ herÂ life these days.Â I guess I would be too if I was escaping a Scientology marriage.
She says,Â â€œI surround myself with truthful, kind people, most of whom are not in the business,â€ she says. â€œItâ€™s the life I want to have when Iâ€™m an old woman with long gray hair.â€
Last June former Penthouse Pet Choloe Jones was found dead in her Houston, Texas home.Â Her death occurred just months after going public with aÂ hot & heavyÂ affair she had with Charlie.Â
Jones’ mother Donna is mulling over filing a wrongful death suit against Sheen, thinking he drove her daughter to kill herself.
Donna Jones tells the Globe, “I’ve seen a lawyer about filing a wrongful death suit against Mr. Sheen. I think he didn’t slip her the pills–but he drove her to it with death threats.
“She’d (Chloe) call me 10 times a day telling me of her fears. She was terrified to death of the guy.”
Estranged wife Denise Richards also appears convinced.Â Richards confronted Sheen about Jones’ death when she learned the mother-of-three had died from liver failure after overdoing on prescription drugs.
Richards reveals, “I saw on the news that she had died from undetermined causes. When I asked him if he had anything to do with her death, he said he had ‘no comment’… This scared me.”
