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.

Eclipse is the best Twilight Saga film to date.

Perhaps this helped the movie set a box office record early this morning, but we have a feeling it would have done quite well even without THG's glowing review.

The third film in this franchise broke the second film's record haul for midnight showings today, as Eclipse pulled in a whopping $30 million across 4,416 screens nationwide. That figure also marks the widest release of all-time, bumping Iron Man 2 down a notch.

New Moon grossed close to $300 domestically during its run, while the original Twlight topped out at $193 million. Expect Eclipse to sky-rocket past both those numbers.

Just how huge has the Twilight Saga become?

In an incident both depressing and hilarious, Elena Kagan was asked about it during her Supreme Court confirmation hearings today. As you can see below, she refrained from commenting on her affiliation with Team Jacob or Team Edward.

It's all a set up.

That's the argument lawyers for Bruce Beresford-Redman plan to use if their client is ever extradited to Mexico on first-degree murder charges.

The former Survivor producer is the prime suspect in the April death of wife Monica, who was found in a sewer near the Cancun hotel where she and Bruce were vacationing, strangled to death.

Since then, Beresford-Redman has proclaimed his innocence, while the victim's sisters have made no secret over their beliefs that Bruce is responsible for Monica's death.

Now, following an unusual hiccup in the case that proves Mexican authorities confiscated Bruce's cell phone last month and made thousands of dollars worth of calls on it, a source tells TMZ exactly what the suspect's defense will be:

Beresford-Redman's attorney will claim police are in need of a scapegoat because there were two deaths aside from Monica's at the Cancun hotel in question, along with an alleged rape by an employee.

With tourism in danger, the lawyer will state, Bruce has been made the fall guy.

Meanwhile, a private funeral service is scheduled for Monica tomorrow. Bruce is not invited.

Prince William turned 28 years old earlier this month, but there's really no need to get him a birthday present.

The guy is about to be $20 billion richer.

While it's being overhyped by tabloids around the world, there's little doubt that William will eventually marry long-time girlfriend Kate Middleton. Once this marriage takes place, sources say the couple will inherent more money than even Heather Mills would know what to do with.

British journalist Katie Nicholl lists the items coming the pair's way as "crown jewels, property, the royal art collection, a palace, and a new Audi."

She estimates the jewelry covering Kate on her wedding day alone to be valued at around $57 million.

Best Weding Gift Ever

Prince William and Kate Middleton will soon get married, inherit billions, rule England and... wait! Justin Bieber has a secret girlfriend?!?

Moreover, William will become the owner of Queen Elizabeth's private art collection, which includes masterpieces by Leonardo da Vinci and is worth at least $15 billion.

Yes, that's billion. Somewhere, Khloe Kardashian is realizing she married the wrong man for money and attention.

PETA may care more about generating headlines (via posters of naked D-list celebrities) than it does about saving the lives of animals, but at least the organization has good taste in women.

It's named Olivia Wilde the Sexiest Vegetarian Celebrity of 2010. Said the vegan House actress in response to the honor:

"Beyond my desire to boycott the torture factories, I am also way happier when I eat a plant-based diet, and I feel about a thousand times more energetic... I am really honored, and very inspired to continue living the vegan lifestyle that has been so good to my body, my animal friends, and the world we live in."

Bob Harper, a trainer on The Biggest Loser, took this award on the male side.

But whatever. Ogle a few Olivia Wilde pictures below!

  • Hot and Vegan
  • Looking Beautiful

Justin Bieber is a pretty laid back, jovial fellow.

He'll joke about crushing on Kim Kardashian and he'll tease fans with the traits he's looking for in a girlfriend. But there's one area in which this artist grows serious: his family.

Yummy FroYo

Responding to the ridiculous rumor last week that his mother was offered $50,000 to pose for Playboy, Justin Tweeted yesterday:

My mom is a moral woman... let's just leave that one for what it is...because that rumor just grossed and wierded [sic] me out...

We're with you, JB. We'd much rather swoon over that hair and that voice of yours anyway.

The first official trailer for Paranormal Activity 2 was released today, as the sequel to last year's surprising horror movie hit comes out on October 22.

Meanwhile, Danielle Staub Raw - the nauseating, pathetic sex tape released by the most insane, attention-starved of all the Real Housewives of New Jersey - is now available online.

This got us wondering: Which of these films is actually scarier? Sure, Paranormal Activity deals with zombies, death and eerie sounds at night. But Danielle Staub Raw features Danielle Staub... raw!

Check out a preview of Staub's video NOW, watch the Paranormal Activity 2 trailer below and then answer our question:

Which scares you more?

They are two of the most beloved, gifted young stars alive - and they might get along very well in real life.

But this is the virtual world, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Swift, and there are no friends in the world of fashion face-offs!

The actress and the singer each wore the same J. Mendel dress out to public events over the last few months, although Stewart chose the strapless ivory version, while Taylor rocked it in lavender.

This photo of Kristen is also outdated because she's cut and dyed her hair since she walked the red carpet for the premiere of New Moon, but that doesn't mean she can't still take on Swift below. Compare, contrast and vote...

Kristen vs. Taylor

Who wears this dress best?

Based on a red carpet photo from earlier this month, we know that Brooke Mueller is alive.

But her rep says his client isn't just breathing in air - she's also doing very, very well!

"We spoke yesterday. She's doing great," Elliot Mintz told E! News. "Just this week she went sailing and had dinner with her kids. We expect her to be back within the next couple weeks. No rehab, no falling off the wagon."

Mintz is referring to the fact that Mueller checked into a stress management program a couple weeks ago, which set off alarms for those who believed she was back on the sauce.

Mueller

Other family sources, meanwhile, confirm that Mueller is residing with her two sons in a rental home on a coastal property in California.

"Brooke just needed to get away because she's being bombarded by everybody with what's going on with Charlie," said an insider. "It's driving Brooke crazy."

Will she and Charlie Sheen ever reconcile? After all, divorce papers are already drawn up. Says this friend:

"I don't think either one of them are talking about whether they are getting back together or not right now. I think it all depends on what happens with this court case, he's pretty bitter about it. That's why Brooke wanted to get everything in place."

Well, sure, Sheen has every right to be bitter. He held a knife to the throat of his wife and has been punished by it with a raise from CBS and an eventual sentencing of almost three whole weeks in jail!

We're happy to hear that Jennifer Capriati is recovering from her prescription pill overdose on Sunday, but the former tennis great has a long road to recovery says a friend.

Former professional tour player Justin Gimelstob told The Early Show on CBS this morning that his pal "has a huge void that she needs to fill" in life, now that sports are no longer an option.

"She's in tremendous pain physically and mentally. She struggled with depression, and it's a tough story," Gimelstob said.

Exactly, Sports Illustrated: Jennifer Capriati was only 13 when she debuted on the women's tour. That's the problem she now faces.

Capriati may own three Grand Slam titles and a Gold Medal, but the 34-year old never enjoyed a regular childhood and the "social interaction" to help her later in life, added Gimelstob:

"She said tennis gives her structure. Without that, that's when the problems ensue, and she's had trouble finding an identity and a sense of purpose."

A somewhat apt comparison could likely be made here between Capriati and Lindsay Lohan, couldn't it? The latter fell off the rails as her movie career fell apart.

In closing, Gimelstob said Capriati's mother is remaining as positive as she can: "[Jennifer's mom] is a very religious woman. She said God is good [and] God is taking care of [Jen]."

Miley Cyrus has made it painfully clear for weeks now: she simply cannot be tamed.

But while this may be true in her wardrobe choices, the singer was cut down to size on the music charts last week. Her latest album, "Can't Be Tamed," finished third in sales, behind Eminem's "Recovery" and Drake's "Thank Me Later."

It was expected that Eminem would lead the way, but not by this wide of a margin. His new CD had the biggest opening week of any in 2010, moving over 753,000 copies.

As for Miley? She has to be disappointed, as "Can't Be Tamed" sold just 106,000 albums. That's an astounding 250,000 fewer than Cyrus' 2008 effort, "Breakout," sold during its first week of release.

Sales

Miley's fans will surely complain about our biased coverage now and make up excuses for their favorite artist. And that's fine, that's their right and we admire their passion.

But numbers don't lie: recent poll results show 70% of respondents laugh at the idea of Cyrus as a role model; moreover, her new CD actually sold fewer copies than her previous CD sold in its second week of release.

As we've been saying all along, is it possible Miley's new image may have gotten her attention, but turned away her fan base? Might she have been better served by slowly evolving as an artist, as opposed to pulling every transparent, cheap trick in the book just to prove she's changed?

These are questions Miley, her handlers and her cult-like followers will need to consider carefully.

  • I'm So Edgy!
  • A Tired Move

The public - literally! - is not buying Miley's tired attempts to be edgy and mature.
