Hollywood Reporter's Power 100 for Women in Entertainment issue was released yesterday (Anne Sweeney is #1 again). As Defamer noted yesterday, Ms. Sweeney got a fresh new headshot to go with her continued perch at the top rung and, apparently, Lifetime Television and the Reporter think the rest of the ladies need to freshen up. Our own top-secret Hollywood operative - who will only own up to be a female power player-in-training and not a full fledged elite - had breakfast with Barbara Walters, Reese Witherspoon and the rest and walked away with a 40 lb gift bag filled with...beauty products?

We're not one to begrudge women and their toys but it seems to us that a Woman in Power can afford her own blush and eyeshadow and might appreciate the same kinds of toys that end up in gift bags for men like gadgets and food baskets. Although, our operative did reveal that there was a lot of bad hair going on in the room so maybe that Lance Christopher Salon gift certificate will do some good. At least they kept with the power theme in the media. Aggressive terms like "Violence" "War" "Anger" and "Crash" pepper the titles. But perhaps the biggest allegory for the true feelings of all those at the top lies in the DVD at the top of the list - "Lady Sings the Blues".

Life isn't rosy at the top no matter the gender, is it? The complete gift bag list, with commentary from our secret Hollywood operative who fought the masses for a bag, after the jump.
