There's no questions that one of Sports Illustrated's most popular Swimsuit models ever is Marisa Miller. But sometimes you need to stop and pay respect to a legend -- and that legend is Heidi Klum.

To this Tale of the Tape that pits Klum against Miller.

Good News And Bad News

Anne, of Rochester, N.Y., writes "So Rick Astley and the 'Rick Rolling' phenomenon were honored at the MTV Europe Music Awards. Think maybe you and your fellow bloggers had something to do with this?" We'd like to think so, and we're very proud. We never thought mentioning Rick Rolling here would lead to Astley winning the "best act ever" award. While things are going good for Astley, Alyssa Milano has run into a bit of trouble. Her ABC sitcom has been canceled before it even aired.

Eric Solorio, of Brea, Calif., writes "Big applause to Hot Clicks and reader Dave Hackett. America Olivo ... she is smoking hot." Yes, she is.
