I agree with most of assessments. Who do you think they're missing from either list?

**my two cents: I'm on board with the bratz dolls, Coulter, Schlafly etc but using Spears and Lohan seems a little low. Sure the may not have their priorities centered but going in and out of rehab isn't really what I consider to be the most embarrassing thing they could be doing for women everywhere. I'm more upset with Britney that she can't remember to put her underwear on. It's just sad because so many women in Hollywood allow themselves to be exploited, what makes Lohan any different from Jessica Simpson, Pussy Cat Dolls, any of the dancing women in hip hop videos?
However, I do agree on Hilton's status. She has always sickened me because I believe she is well aware of her exploited status and participates in it all too willingly.
