Cleopatra is the original "goddess." We don't know what she really looked like, but it's said her beauty wasn't as spectacular as her "charisma." You go girl!

What does it take to become a 'Goddess?' And would you want to be one, knowing they go down in flames?

So we all know about these so-called "Goddesses." They are beautiful, alluring, confident, uninhibited in bed, and make men and women drool over the thought of being with them, like them or just associated with them. But....

Would you want to be like them?

That's the $10,000 question of the day: knowing that most are aloof, troubled, lonely, bi-polar or die a horrible death, does it sound like something enviable? Let me break a few down into non-scientific descriptions to see how "glamorous" their lives really are:

Megan Fox: She is one hot babe. Ever since we saw her in Transformers, teenage boys, and grown women alike have been fantasizing about her. What is her draw? She is just beautiful, but plastic surgery is chiseling away at her natural stuff every time we get a glimpse of her. She is with a guy who's like, my age, and um, I'm not a spring chicken, let's just say.... But, she has "it," and her natural beauty and American Indian roots seem to have an "x-factor" that audiences can't describe.

Angelina Jolie: Who can forget the sexy and talented version of "Lara Croft" when she became the female version of Indiana Jones? Truth be told: I imagined Ms. Jolie as the next "Wonder Woman" after my childhood idol of Lynda Carter, up until.... she became the mistress of a married man. Sorry folks, but this deals with subjects too close to my home. I'm a Jennifer Aniston supporter, or not.... Angie is still super hot and is probably here to stay.

Marilyn Monroe: She will forever be our favorite example of Goddesses. She is the blond men prefer. She is the lover of our beloved president (even though no one will come clean with it). She exuded lust and desirability, even though she's been named "bi-polar." Um, I don't know either way, but she has inspired me to draw several artworks. And she is the epitome of sexuality even in today's standards.

Wonder Woman: OK, I'll admit that she's my own standard of excellence in beauty, femininity, strength and desirability. I try to base myself on her preachings. Namely: I will fight for justice, and not stop trying until all my sources have been depleted. And, I usually chase after men who can't return the love. The good women are seldom recognized for their strengths, and meanwhile, the manipulative gold-diggers reap the rewards of men. Oh well. At least the Gods will look down on us favorably.

Cleopatra: The original Goddess. What can be said about her? Well, from historic accounts, she wasn't the most "attractive" woman of the bunch, but she had a killer personality, sex appeal, and could say "no" to men which made them go "ga-ga" to try to "own her." Here is where I go wrong: If I could just stop being the cheerleader, and be more rejecting, I'm pretty sure I'd be on my way to 'Goddessdome.' From what I know, Cleopatra died from the bite of a viper, for a stupid guy who brought down a king. Oh what sordid lives we lead!

In reflection: would you want to be a Goddess? What is their common thread? Most are aloof, seductive yet scandalous, sexy yet emotionally unstable, desirable yet miserable. OK, I've heard enough. I am more the peppy, cheerleader type: think Natalie Wood, Sandra Bullock in All About Steve, or "Greg" in The Roxburry. The Disco scene where he is trying to get the others to dance is based around my character, even if it's a guy who is a body-builder. I may never be the "Goddess," but in all fairness, I wouldn't want to go down burning in flames or have to live a life of drama. So I guess I'll settle into my mediocre version of being female by being "who I am."



Who would you want to be like (as a woman) and want to be with (as a man)?
