Who Are Connecticut’s Hottest Newswomen In 2014? Results Coming Tomorrow
100 comments, 02/13/2014, by , in LOCAL, NEWS

The local news industry notoriously has a lot of turnover. Though it seems that in the last few years we have lost more of our beloved Connecticut Newswomen than usual. Such power hitters as  Sara Welch, Kristen Cusato,  Sonia Baghdady, Desiree Fontaine, and most recently Olessa Stepanova. All gone. You are all very missed here in CT.

Well it is time now for all of us to move on. It’s time to find out who the new local news talent is in 2014. The up-and-comers, the dark horses, the future of Newswomen in Connecticut.

    Stephanie Simoni-Game over, all others go home. If I had a chance to get with her, here’s what I’d plan for the evening :Here’s the deal… I’d take this girl out on a date..we’d go to taco belle or something similar..Id load her up on the cheapest food in the menu..tacos & such. Then, I’ll top it off with a few cans of YooHoo…this is important b/c yoohoo will ‘make things happen later. We’ll take a romantic carriage ride thru the park on the way home. Then, once home, we’ll head for the bedroom and let the show begin. She’ll need to use the bathroom but I’ll insist she use it later…under duress, she’ll start taking off her clothes all the while telling me she REALLY need to use the bathroom. I’ll jam my throbbing member in her mouth and she instinctively start sucking, not unlike a baby with a nipple. I’ll lay out and we’ll 69 each other with her on top. Then the Yoo Hoo kick in and she says, TSLD, I have to use the toilet-NOW. But before she gets up..BoOM! She sprays that evenings former meal all over me, my face & torso, the bed, sheets, the picture of Dr. Who on my nightstand, etc. Its a wonderful mess. I’ll start rolling around in it. Hours later I’ll wake up and go to work. My co workers will look at me and be like sh!t, dude? Ill just make up some story that I fell into a septic tank on the way to work or something…

    FOX 61 has the all-time CT babe duo w/ Amanda Raus & Maggie Slyz pulling morning anchor summer duty. Holy bejeezus they are a gorgeous tandem.

    Hena Daniels hands down. How Atlanta let her go confounds me.

    Not only is Maggie Slysz absolutely gorgeous, she is, also, eloquent and professional. She doesn’t stutter or stumble over her words and is always well prepared. FOX News CT does not use her correctly or enough! BIG MISTAKE! Great big shout out for Erica Arias, though, who comes in a very close second!

    I have to vote for Ali Reed.Absolutely stunning and beautiful to look at.Beautiful eyes,full lips and a great smile.And I don’t know why but ever since she cut her hair shorter,I feel it really brings out her face more.

    Does Noelle Gardner have a tongue ring or does she talk with a lisp problem?


  7. Mark Russel

    Erin Logan looks like she smells like stale cigs and old uncarbonated beer. My vote goes to Crystal Hall! I just like everything about her! She doesn’t get anywhere near enough exposure, in my opinion.


    • Joesph Russo
      February 2nd, 2015 16:22

      Hey Mark,you’re 100% right.Google Erin Logan and you will see she was arrested with a .11 alcohol level when she worked for a news channel in Indiana and was fired for public intoxication and resisting arrest.She apparently also tried to kick a police officer with her 3 inch heels and started to swat him as well.She is also apparently according to a lot of people back there was having an affair with Notre Dame basketball coach Mike Brey which led to him almost being fired.One of the links is below.

      Oh gosh, I so agree. Erin looks hard. I do not watch when she fills in on the evening news. I love Daren and the ann’s but ERIN, no.


  8. January 10th, 2015 19:56

    Wonderful post but I was wanting to know if you could write a litte more
    on this topic? I’d be very grateful if you could elaborate a little bit further.

    Henna Daniels? Really? Her body is good, but from the neck up she is Mr. Potato Head. Different parts of her face don’t match. Where is AJ Walker? She is beautiful!


  10. December 16th, 2014 7:44

    But why the Hollywood glamour looks and the bare minimum dresses??
    Are they trying to out-glam each other?
    I, personally, prefer those who say “last year” instead of “lasheer”.

    All I know is if I had a woman as beautiful as Nicole Nalepa is,I’d die a happy man.I love how someone like her has so much fun with anything she does.I don’t get on here how more guys are saying the same thing.But I guess to each is own.


  12. Brandon
    November 23rd, 2014 0:41

    I’m either going to go with Ally Reed,Nicole Nalepa,Kerri-Lee Mayland,or Maggie Sylsz.I bet that Erika Martin is so scary looking when she wakes up in the mornin without any makeup on.Erin Logan looks like someone who drinks and smokes too much.Noelle Gardner talks like she has a lisp and what is up with her hair?Does she think she is at a Motley Crue concert back in the 1980′s?Teresa LaBarbera to me is just all makeup and a phony stuck up personality.


  13. Jon Oberlander

    Nicole wins!


  14. Jon Oberlander
    November 20th, 2014 7:55

    Ms Frank and Ms Nelepa. They are in a dead heat for the top pick in my book.

    They are very attractive especially Erika martin but where is Ann nyberg


    • Debra
      February 2nd, 2015 16:24

      Erika Martin is so phony and fake.I bet she looks like a monster when she wakes up in the morning without any makeup on.Thank god she no longer works for WTNH anymore.And she always dressed like she was going on a soap opera or a model shoot.She just comes across as one of those people who’s family tells her all the time how beautiful she is and it eventually goes to her head where she thinks that way.I mean what channel would ever allow someone to wear such short skirts on tv?Maybe she should have tried working for the Fox News Channel.

    October 23rd, 2014 8:16

    If Maggie was my wife I would cook her dinner every night then rub her feet till she fell asleep, then I would sit in the corner of the room and watch her sleep all night.

    Once she woke up I would cook her breakfast, pancakes or eggs with spinach.

    While she was at work I would clean the whole house just waiting for her to come home.

      Dear “Maggie Lover’

      You obviously have no experience with women and would never have her as ‘yours’ because any woman who was treated like that would leave you in a heartbeat.

    What I’d do to Maggie Slysz


  18. October 18th, 2014 19:28

    Ali Reed

    Henna by a long shot not only is she absolutely beautiful,intelligent she is also good to watch at any time day or night.i honestly just melt and lose track of everything else when I see her channel 3 is lucky to have her,but we the viewers are the luckiest

  22. Father Nosferatu
    May 29th, 2014 9:02

    I would eat, drink, roll around in or rub all over my face ANYTHING that would come out of Maggie Slysz’ body. That includes liquids or solids and from ANY HOLE!

    I don’t think Nicole Nalepa fits in with the morning staff at WFSB. To me, she seems very akward. I miss Olessa.


    • Joanne
      February 2nd, 2015 16:31

      That Nicole Nalepa needs to seriously do something with that god awful hair style she has going on there.She comes across so much like a tomboy.I also saw her singing with Scott Haney one morning and it made me wanna puke.
