The 10 Sexiest Texans of Our Lifetime

Categories: Texas

Texas is loaded with natural resources, among them beautiful women. The state has provided many, many gorgeous, sexy and smart women.

To be sure, not all of them combine all of those qualities -- there are tradeoffs to be made -- but still, there's been no shortage in our lifetimes of fetching Texas women.

How are we defining "our lifetimes"? As with all things, it's the Baby Boomer era.

So here are the top ten:

10. Joan Severance
This Westbury High alumna first introduced the concept of soft-porn S&M to a nation of avid VHS users. She's been a Playboy cover girl whose nude shots abound on the net.

9. Erykah Badu
It's not just the musical talent, it's not just the ballsiness of a Dallasite shooting a nude music video in Dealey Plaza; perhaps it's that a Google Image search for her autofills to "Erykah Badu booty." And, of course, there's that hair.

8. Angie Harmon
Perhaps the first on this list for whom you'd have to put up with listening to inanities -- she's a rich-kid Dallas supporter of Sarah Palin -- Harmon's dark good looks might make it worthwhile. (Still, Sarah Palin?) It's up to you whether it hurts or helps that she's married to one of the most overrated New York Giants of all time, Jason Sehorn.

7. Janeane Garofalo
Who can resist a sarcastic, smart, tattoo'd woman who mocks society's obsession with female looks? A lot of you, probably. But to each his own. She reportedly hated her time as a high-schooler in the Houston area, so you'd have to decide if that's a deal-breaker for you.

Totally agree w/ the following:**Janine Turner! She nabbed a young, hot Alec Baldwin....**Janeane G. but of course. If she was stuck in Katy, no wonder she whined about Houston. Stop your hatin', commenters: The only downside to her is the chain-smoking. I would turn for her. And for Angie Harmon if she kept her yap shut. No First Amendment rights for Palin worshipers.**Morgan Fairchild! Sure, no one except the dr. who brought her into the world has seen her w/out makeup....**Janis Joplin!!!!**Ann Richards!!!!**Bonnie Parker!!!! and why not Barbara Jordan?

Steve Martin was born in Waco. He's got the sexy trifecta: intelligent, talented and funny as hell. I'll take him over the perpetually shirtless McConaughey any day of the week.

Beyonce, Severance, Harmon, Longoria, Fawcett and both Smith's are hot. Badu not so much. Simpson is way overated However Garafola is a misfit and butt ugly.

Yes, I know you qualified the list with "in our lifetime," but that's just not going to cut it for a credible list. That said, most of these are in your lifetime (all but one in fact):You left out some real contenders: the 'Brewster McCloud'-era Shelly Duvall; silent film actress and bootlegger to the stars Texas Guinan; Bonnie Parker (if you believe she resembled the young Faye Dunaway); former Houston actress and director Jackson Gay; authors Beverly Lowry and Olive Hershey (we'd like to think that minds figure in this too). Surely, Mr. C, you weren't serious about Anna Nicole Smith. And yes, I would include Ann Richards. Close to the top.

janeane garofalo is not a texan. she lived in houston - katy, to be exact - during high school.

now janine turner is a sexy texas lady missing from the list. sad that she went weirdly blonde, though. also, what about leann rimes?

I have no idea why this article was described as "10 Sexiest Texans of Our Lifetime," when it should be entitled "10 Sexiest Female Texan Entertainers." It's only fair that you do a Male Texan list. I promise, however, if you make Matthew McConaughey as #1, my 12 year love affair with your column will be over!

Um... Janeane Garofalo? Pass.

What about Jennifer Love Hewitt? Jennifer Garner? Summer Glau? Going back a bit, how 'bout Jerry Hall? Cyd Charisse? Morgan Fairchild?

Anna Nicole Smith and Garofolo? Meh.

And just where the hell is Waco's own Jennifer Love Hewitt?

Beyonce at no. 1 is too easy.

Not a credible list at all.

Mr. Blonde said her butt was too big for this list.

You ruined this list with Erica Badu and Beyonce. If you watch Badu's infamous video, you will see a fat, out-of-shape ugly woman. Her huge butt and thighs look like they were in a major hailstorm. Beyonce looks nothing like her pictures, they are almost all heavily photoshopped and recolored to make her lighter and especially to conceal her huge butt and unshapely, unfit legs. Some of your other choices are weak, too. You started off with Joan Severance, which made me think you would know what you're talking about, but you are just a foloower of the PR machine that promotes ugliness as beauty for profit. You probably think Kim Kardashian is good looking too.
