Those sexy and talented stars of Days of our Lives and Venice have made it again to the website’s Hot 100 list for 2011.  Nadia Bjorlin (Chloe, DAYS, Lara, Venice) came in at the number sixty-nine spot, while Crystal Chappell (Carly, DAYS, Gina Venice) landed at number forty! Way to go soap gals!  But it was GLEE’s, Naya Rivera who ended up at number one!

And here is a bit about how the women were chosen: It was through the voting efforts of the fans and readers for’s annual Hot 100 list! Since they first invited their readers to vote in their Hot 100 poll back in 2007, their picks and tastes have always been diverse and substantive.

Many of the picks are best known for their television and films roles, or music and recording,  As is often the case, many of the heterosexual celebrities who made the list this year are beloved for their portrayal of lesbian/bi women in film and television. Even those women who’ve taken on roles that only hinted at lesbian/bi subtext are consistently rewarded with the website’s readers votes.

So what do you think of the list? Let us know!

Congrats ladies and well deserved. Crystal and Nadia are smoking hot. But Michael, I have to say that list is all over the place. I had never heard of half the ladies on it. The list was in response to the Maxim Hot 100 back in 2007 and how the afterellen readers claimed to have such different taste. They certainly do that, Crystal and Nadia are two of the very few I actually agree with.


I was pleased to see both Nadia and Crystal on the list, though I was a bit surprised not too see the charismatic and beautiful Jessica Leccia on it again. The only thing I can think of is that her role on OLTL hasn’t given her the exposure like DOOL has for both of her co-stars. Well, she’ll always be my #1.
