Written by: Wendy Maxey January 30, 2009 Filed Under Celebrities Tags: presidents <!-- -->There is a saying that only one out of every 10 people is good-looking. Next time youre in a crowded place, take a gander. Youll see that its mostly true (unless youre in a room full of swimsuit models in that case, go you!). So, when narrowing down the top 10 hottest first ladies (and mistresses), I did a little math. There have been 44 presidential wives. If the saying holds true, that means only 4.5 are aesthetically pleasing. Ouch. No wonder there are so many mistresses. The ironic thing about the mistresses, though? John Kennedy had the most, but he had the hottest wife. Go figure. [h=2]10. Helen Herron Taft[/h] OK, so maybe ol Willies wife Helen Herron didnt smile a lot, but she had nice eyes. That counts for something. She was by far better looking than him. She knew how to sport some cool jewelry, too. Slap a smile on that face (and maybe some Frizz-Ease) and shed probably move up a few notches on the list. [h=2]9. Grace Coolidge[/h] Calvins wife Grace looks more like a soccer mom than a hot wife, but theres just something about Grace that draws you in. And, the fact that she was one of the founding members of Pi Beta Phi sorority at the University of Vermont only proves that, on the inside, Grace was a hot party girl. [h=2]8. Louisa Adams[/h] John Adams was 30 when he married 22-year-old Louisa. Louisa was a looker, especially for the early 1800s. And it looks like she had a rockin bod, too. John made the right choice when he picked Louisa over her plain-Jane sister Abigail. [h=2]7. Gennifer Flowers[/h] Bill Clintons taste in women doesnt touch former playboy president John Kennedys, but at the end of the day this list just wouldnt be complete if it didnt include one of Bills scandalous affairs, because frankly Hot.Hillary.Is.Not. So we had to go with Gennifer Flowers on this one. You remember Gennifer. She gladly told the world about her affair with Bill and he blatantly denied it on 60 Minutes. In the end he fessed up. Poor Bill. Seems to be a pattern. [h=2]6. Jane Wyman[/h] Jane was pretty hot in her acting days, but long before she played bitter Angela Channing on Falcon Crest. Besides the fact that she won an Oscar for Best Actress in Johnny Belinda, she still holds the title of being the only ex-wife to a U.S. president. In the words of Paris Hilton, thats hot. I bet Ronnie and Jane whooped it up Hollywood-style before they split and he got hitched to ol Nancy. [h=2]5. Judith Exner[/h] Its interesting that Judith Exner resembles Jackie Kennedy because she was allegedly one of Johns (many) flings. We will give it to John, though, he did pick the hot ones (as youll see). Apparently the dudes were drawn to Judith, as she reportedly had affairs with a handful of famous cats Frank Sinatra included. [h=2]4. Blaze Starr[/h] Lets face it. Johnny boy was having affairs left and right, but at least he went for the sexy burlesque dancer (OK, stripper) and not the White House intern. Apparently Blaze had it for the politicians (or vice versa) because she allegedly had a long affair with Earl Long, too, governor of Louisiana. [h=2]3. Jayne Mansfield[/h] Jayne Mansfield was H-O-T! One of the first American sex symbols, Jayne was yet another of John Kennedys alleged mistresses. Apparently he (along with dozens of other men) liked the Playboy Playmates. It was said that Jayne got around and even flaunted her nipples in front of other actresses men. Talk about a hot little number. [h=2]2. Jackie Kennedy[/h] We have to give serious props to Jackie Kennedy, right? She is the classic beauty. Gay men and lesbians all over America would even consider Jackie a hottie. John may have dipped his nuggets in a variety of sauces, but he always came home to Jackie. Jackie is No. 2 on this list because, sigh, she is not the hottest. Classiest, by far. Hottest? We cant honestly say so, which leads us to [h=2]1. Marilyn Monroe[/h] Enough said.
