    Glad to see Julia Louis-Dreyfus on that list. She's awesome!! And yeah, go Tyraaaaaaaaaa. screw the haterz. I love ANTM, and who cares if she's the #1 narcissist in America.

  18. 18

    hey perez, i would just like to inform you that GHOST WHISPERER is BACK ON TOP!
    but since you are a negative person, you would only like to inform others about the ONE time the show didnt have decent ratings. ;)

  19. 19

    When is someone gonna push this Lesbian out of the closet already???

  20. 20

    Congrats to all the women who made the list! I watch Tyra…she's pretty dingy but she's fun to watch.

  21. 21

    Tina Fey needs a pay raise.

  22. 22

    hehe her butt looks pointy

  23. 23

    what a bunch of overpaid women !!! good lord fuck them all !!!

  24. 24

    Jennifer Love Hewitt is doing well on Ghost whisperer so I don't understand the surprise on that. It's an okay show. Not something I would watch every day but if it's on I won't turn it away sort of thing.

  25. 25

    What did she do to her eyes? They've looked very large lately.

  26. 26

    Yeah Perez just goes to show you stupid and shallow you can be sometimes, but I don't hold it against you. I just know that are of that nature and let it slide, lmao. I mean 6 million dollars from JL, that's amazing and in the Forbes list. So just because someone isn't the "it" girl anymore doesn't mean they still aren't successful.

    Tyra, however annoying is amazing. I love Top Model, sometimes. This season has been the best yet! And she's a really good inspiration for a lot of woman. She brings positive light to many issues.
