The New Number One

After having watched my two previous Number Ones get knocked off the mountain, and in one case, suffer a brutal fall from grace, I think the third times a charm. Everyone's got a Number One, for most girls, it's Brad Pitt, and guys, well, they'll pick alot of different Number Ones.

Way back in the day, Britney Spears was my Number One. Keep in mind, I said WAY back in the day. The Catholic school girl Britney. Then came the Madonna worshipping, the Kaballah conversion, and the move into the double wide with that Federline guy. Wow. What a fall from grace. Not so much a fall, as a catastrophic implosion. While no one ever had issue with Britney being my Number One at the time, I feel kinda cheated that she ended up like this. It wasn't supposed to happen like this.

How do her handlers let her become that trashy that fast? Did I miss a memo? So many people were making SO much money off her, how did this really happen? I'm not so much distraught at the fact that it DID happen, but as to HOW it happened. There was SO much potential here. She had the wholesome childhood to fall back on as a Mousecateer(sp?). She dated Justin Timberlake for a while, they so could have become the entertainment powercouple. He must have seen that the light at the end of the tunnel wasn't the sun, but an oncoming train. Best career move he ever made was dumping her. But none of us understood it at the time. Well played Justin.

But rest easy Britney. While I may not be able to look past your marriage and you walking into a truck stop restroom barefoot, I'm sure there's a lot of NASCAR fans that still hold you dear in their hearts as Number One.

So I moved on. I thought I had found my new Number One. She's HOT, had a great television show, and *gasp*, was older. Willy and I argued about that one for a while. She's 32, and sure didn't look it. And I will admit, it was tough to let her go. I still enjoy the show, even though I don't watch it as much as I used to. The transition to the movie career didn't start off so well, but I'm willing to look past "Dude, Where's My Car" because she got all leathered up in "Electra".

Jennifer Garner, please come back to us. You haven't experienced anything like Britney, but you did marry Ben Affleck. While for that reason, and that reason alone, I'd like to be him... I just can't look past that. Your worship of Martha Stewart kinda creeps me out a bit too. Again with the potential. If you would have stayed single, and took a few more risks with the movie career, you could have ruled the world.

But she's still smokin' hot. And she still kicks ass on "Alias". And should anything ever happen to my new Number One, she'll be in the running for the spot again. But somethings would have to change to reclaim it. But as I said, it was tough to let you go. Until I found the NEW Number One.

So with all that said, I'm pretty stoked about my new Number One. She might be young, but she's HOT, sounds intelligent in interviews, seems to be making good career decisions... and is hot. Did I mention she's hot?

Ahhh, Mrs. Keira Knightley. Only a young 20, but all the qualities to stay a Number One for a long time. Good movies so far, and an upcoming "Pirates of the Caribbean 2" coming up. Too bad most of the wardrobe guys in Hollywood are gay, cuz they're missing out on some fun for that film.

The British accent kinda gets me a little too. It's kinda like the southern accent here in the U.S. On a guy, a southern accent ( and I mean DEEP south ), makes him sound just plain dumb. But on a chick.... it's sexy. The British accent never did much for me. Guys sound snobby with it, and I never really cared either way for it when a girl had it. But Keira makes it sound pretty damn good.

She was just on the "Daily Show" doing her press junket for her new movie "Pride and Prejudice", and she really seemed to be enjoying herself. She looked pretty good during the interview too. She didn't take herself too seriously, and even though all the press stuff is 'work' for them, she pulled off the 'girl next door, enjoying the ride' persona very well.

I heard a good line once that I think could apply to Keira....."She's the kinda girl I'd leave the wife and kids on Christmas morning for." Yup. My new Number One. Keira Knightley.

I'm glad you're not coaching high school girls "pole vaulting" any more.

I've had several Number One's over the years...

Right now I think that Tricia Helfer has a good hold on that spot for me... so to speak.

Kiera Knightly is pretty hot. Shes a bit on the thin side for my personal taste, tho.
