Here in America we have a million shows that appeal to the younger audiences from The Vampire Diaries, Pretty Little Liars, Hart of Dixie and many more and while a large number of these shows are trying to become more politically correct, they still have a lot of growing to do. The same however, cannot be said for some of the teen drama shows in Canada.
Shows like Degrassi: The Next Generation and South of Nowhere, had already proven themselves to be politically correct and worthy of being able to stand out from the crowd. These two shows showcase the reality of what teenagers go through, on a more realistic level. South of Nowhere told the story of friends struggling with life and trying to survive high school.
What makes the show so special is that their main characters are homosexual. The show depicts the struggles and was one of the first shows, this writer, has ever heard of that really showcased and focused on the world of homosexuality in high school.
So what exactly does this have to do with Hottie of the Week? Well it just so happens that our newest HOTW, Mandy Musgrave was one of the stars of the hit Canadian series, South of Nowhere. Musgrave’s character, Ashley Davies was a conflicted teen who was in love with both her best friend, Spencer Carlin played by, Gabrielle Christian and her high school boyfriend, Aiden Dennison played by Matt Cohen. It was a love triangle that was not like any other.
Musgrave portrayed the conflicted teenager so perfectly and with such poise it was impossible to pick a side, Spencer or Aiden. Since the show ended Musgrave had a few shows under her belt and has been keeping busy with husband and former costar, Matt Cohen. Their coupling makes this beauty even hotter.
What makes Musgrave so superb is that despite her husband’s popularity and female fans throwing themselves at him every weekend at Supernatural conventions she stays poised and is so incredibly kind to the fans. She is also incredible to the South of Nowhere fans who have remained so loyal even to this day. The show ended in 2008 but fans still keep up with their favorite actors from the series and still hope beyond hope that one day the series will make its return.
Musgrave is physically stunning, you look at her and you’re immediately taken by her beauty but upon seeing how she treats others and cares for both hers and her husband’s fans, she is beyond a shadow of a doubt one of kindest hotties ever.
