Well, this is not just a personal opinion. Instead, over the course of her career as a journalist, Melissa Theuriau’s status as one of the hottest female news anchors in the world has been acknowledged officially over and over again. For instance, in 2006, she was voted TV’s sexiest woman by the American readers of Maxim.
