21. Heather Locklear

Notable projects: Dynasty (TV series, 1981-1989), T.J. Hooker (TV series, 1982-1986), Melrose Place (TV series, 1993-1999), Spin City (TV series, 1999-2002)

We hate to call use the word “bitch” when describing women, even fictional ones, so we’ll just say this: When it comes to playing the word that technically means “female dog,” very few actresses do it better than Heather Locklear. Honing the stone-heartedness on Dynasty, and perfecting it as the ruthless Amanda Woodward on Fox’s shamefully great soap Melrose Place, Locklear has earned her legacy as TV’s coldest hot chick.
