This week we highlight as the Women of the Week, Minka Kelly. Last year she was number 23 on the list of tea512 smokin sasses of 2008. Minka was born on June 24, 1980 in Los Angeles, California. She grew up in New Mexico and that is where she spent her childhood until she graduated from high school. She went to live with her father in LA to become a surgical technician. Her father was absent a lot of her younger years as he is a guitarist born in France and played three years with Aerosmith. While attending school in LA she was bitten with the acting bug. She started taking small roles on the big and small screen. She started with roles in the movie 2 Fast 2 Furious in 2003 and in 2004 on the Drake and Josh Show. She had a three episode recurring role on What I Like About you in 2005. Minka Kelly was recently seen at the Golden Globe Awards InStyle/Warner Bros After Party pictured above. She has exploded on to the scene and our list from her role in Friday Night Lights. We thought she would drop this year as her character had turned to religion but 2009 started of in a completely different direction. She has a smoking athletic body and looks hot in anything she wears on the screen or the red carpet. She looks awesome in the blue panther cheerleading outfit and totally rocks the denim mini skirt. Minka Kelly is a shoe in to make the list again in 2009.

It Seems Like Forever, And A Day,
If My Intentions, Were Misunderstood,
Please Be Kind, I’ve Done, All I Should…
