I am a senior staff writer at THG and a big fan of Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber and Robert Pattinson. I believe Kim Kardashian is bad for society, but great for attention, and that The Real Housewives should all be banned from existence.

Natalie Portman won an Oscar for role in Black Swan, but now the star's body double is claiming the actress was featured in the film far less than has been advertised.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Sarah Lane -  an American Ballet Theatre soloist who perfected many of the movie's complicated dance sequences - said: “Of the full body shots, I would say 5 percent are Natalie. All the other shots are me.”

Lane spoke out in response to comments a couple days earlier by Portman's fiance, choreographer Benjamin Millepied. He told the L.A. Times that "85 percent of that movie is Natalie.”

However, Lane says that only applies to shots which are "just her face with arms... that doesn’t show the actual dancing.”

Saying she's the victim of a "cover up," Lane adds that Black Swan producer Ari Handel told her to remain quiet about these facts, yet she's going on record now because "it is demeaning to the profession... I’ve been doing this for 22 years... Can you become a concert pianist in a year and a half, even if you’re a movie star?”

What else can audience members look forward to from this deranged individual?

  • The use of video.
  • Content related to Sheen's "manifesto," Scoleri says.
  • An appearance by goddesses Natalie Kenly and Rachel Oberlin, the latter of whom will be involved directly in some way, her rep confirms.

Concludes Scoleri: "He's one of the most creative people I've ever met in my life. If you want Charlie Sheen, you'll get vintage Sheen with this show. The guy's a media juggernaut. He's there to entertain."

What do you think, readers? Does this sound like a WINNING formula?

Joe Giudice is in trouble with the law yet again.

The Bravo reality star, who was busted for DUI last year and also booked for a number of outstanding warrants, was arrested on Friday for obtaining a phony driver's license. The assistant prosecutor of New Jersey says Joe used his brother's ID to secure a license because his had been suspended due to the drunk driving incident.

If convicted, he could face time in prison.

Serena Williams has been deemed too sexy for television.

A few days after a link to the tennis star's new 2K Sports video game commercial was Tweeted, the company received enough backlash over the spot - which features a scantily-clad Serena taking on a scantily-clad model - to announce it would not air on TV.

"As part of the process for creating marketing campaigns to support our titles, we pursue a variety of creative avenues," 2K Sports wrote in a statement. "This video is not part of the title's final marketing campaign and its distribution was unauthorized."

But it was clearly meant to hit the airways, as Serena Tweeted last week to be on the lookout for "awesomely sexy video."

And, come on, 2K Sports, billboards of Rafael Nadal shirtless are all over Europe.

What do you think? Should the ad have been pulled?

Geraldine , the first woman to ever run for Vice President of the United States, passed away today. She was 75.

A family spokesperson confirms that Ferraro succombed to blood cancer at Massachusetts General Hospital around 10 a.m. In 1984, the three-term congresswoman from Queens joined Walter Mondale's Presidential ticket in an election against Ronald Reagon and George H.W. Bush.

The latter duo won 49 out of 50 states to retain the White House.

Soon after her passing, Mondale paid tribute to his former running mate, remember her "a remarkable woman and a dear human being" and adding:

"She was a pioneer in our country for justice for women and a more open society. She broke a lot of molds and it's a better country for what she did."

Sarah Palin, who followed in Ferraro's Vice Presidential footsteps in 2008, also released a statement on her Facebook page: "She broke one huge barrier and then went on to break many more. May her example of hard work and dedication to America continue to inspire all women."

We haven't heard the last from Rebecca Black.

Thanks to the help of Ryan Seacrest, on whose radio show Black appeared last Friday, the 13-year old singer has been signed by music manager Debra Baum to her label, DB Entertainment.

It's one of the funniest videos on record. But, to Bret Michaels, what happened in June 2009 is no laughing matter.

The rocker took to the Tony Awards' stage two years ago, sang alongside the Rock of Ages cast - and then knocked himself silly against a piece of scenery. Relive the dangerous/unfortunate/hilarious incident below:

Yesterday, Michaels filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles County Superior Court against Tony Award Productions, CBS and others for unspecified damages, claiming producers failed to instruct him how to properly exit the stage following this performance.

Bret was treated for a broken nose and cut lip at the scene, and the suit says his brain injury months later was due to this mishap. Reads the document:

"One of the most common causes of this type of hemorrhage is head trauma - exactly like the one Michaels suffered at the hands of the Tony Awards."
