Not to be outdone by the boys, After Ellen has also released their 2009 list of the hottest women in pop culture. The highest daytime honor went to funny lady Ellen Degeneres at Number 15, but talking strictly soaps, it was Young and Restless newcomer Clementine Ford at Number 18. Ford won critical acclaim, as well as rabid popularity for her stint on the Showtime cable series The L Word.
Ford wasn't the only soaper on the list, the recently-cancelled Guiding Light made an impressive showing, with both halves of sapphic supercouple Otalia, Crystal Chappell and Jessica Leccia, making the cut at Number 50 and Number 60, respectively. You hear that Lifetime and Oxygen? You could have your L Word follow up right here! The smoking hot Chappell also came in Number 7 on After Ellen's Hot Women Over 40 List. The equally-stunning Leccia made Number 12 on the website's Hot Women of Color List.
