Longoria Tops Maxim 100 Again


Eva Longoria: Yup, she's still hot.

The astute folks at Maxim magazine voted the "Desperate Housewives" actress as the hottest woman for the second year in a row.

"I was floored that Maxim named me No. 1 for the second year in a row! I hope that the San Antonio Spurs follow in my footsteps and repeat also!" Longoria exclaims. "Maxim and their readers have been so amazing to me, not only have they made it possible to see me from space, but to choose me out of so many beautiful women for the second time is unbelievably flattering!"

She's referring to a cover she did for the lad mag's 100th issue that was blown-up to oversized proportions and placed in the Las Vegas Desert.

Other celebrities rounding out the Top 10 on the Scoville hotness scale include "Sin City's" Jessica Alba, "Just My Luck" redhead Lindsay Lohan, mother-to-be Angelina Jolie, "Dancing with the Stars" second season contender Stacy Keibler, "Match Point's" Scarlett Johansson, Cameron Diaz, the new Lois Lane in "Superman Returns" Kate Bosworth, "Pirates of the Caribbean" star Keira Knightley and R&B artist Christina Milian.

Unlike last year's list, the 7th annual listing of buzzworthy beauties actually includes fellow "Housewives" stars Nicollette Sheridan (48) and Teri Hatcher (73). TV has its share of eye candy on the list including "Lost's" Emilie de Ravin (65), Evangeline Lilly (67) and Yunjin Kim (98) and former castaway Maggie Grace (75).

Other boob tube hotties include "Veronica Mars" snoop Kristen Bell (11), "Grey's Anatomy" cutter Katherine Heigl (12), first season "Dancing with the Stars" champ Kelly Monaco (13), "The O.C.'s" Rachel Bilson (14) and Mischa Barton (21), "24's" Elisha Cuthbert and "Battlestar Galactica's" Grace Park.

So who's not hot? J.Lo, Salma Hayek and new moms Britney Spears and Katie Holmes were missing from the list.
