For the most part, those of you last week could agree on the hotness of "Orphan Black" star Tatiana Maslany (although there were a few honest dissenters). It made me think of this week's release BLENDED and the disagreeing that goes on with mismatched couples. Which made me think of my parents, who have gotten along for more than 3 decades and yet rarely agree on simple things. This week's Hot or Not pick and one of the stars of that movie is oddly enough one of them.
Prior to 2003, when McLendon-Covey joined the cast of "Reno 911," she wasn't up to much of anything in the entertainment industry, apart from being a member of The Groundlings. Looking into her personal past, it makes sense that my parents both thoroughly dig Deputy Clementine Johnson - she's a college graduate in creative writing who loves Steely Dan (my dad's favorite band). So she's not stupid, which makes it easier for my mom to understand why my dad is always saying she's a sexy babe. Which, frankly, should in and of itself give me the heebs, with my dad talking like that about her.
Since "Reno 911" Wendi has been racking up the cool funny chick points, featured as one of the co-stars in BRIDESMAIDS, found a few years' footing on that David Spade sitcom "Rules of Engagement" and currently is on one of the (inexplicably) popular ABC comedies, "The Goldbergs." It also seems suitable that McLendon-Covey is the subject of mature lust/breakups in BLENDED. There's something about her that people can't get enough of.
Clearly, WMC is a funny bitch, which adds so much to the hot factor of any woman. It's a predictable and stereotypical kind of funny - the grating, foul-mouthed, bleached-blonde suburban house mom type but it works in her case. Add to that her rocking cougar body but subtract her occasionally wonky looking face and you have yourself a opinions-vary-on-the-individual kind of hotness. I like WMC plenty. I'll even say that she's doing her thing and that's hot, but I don't know if I could lean that way on my own. I'll leave her to my pops.
What do you think of Wendi McLendon-Covey?
