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.

There are a couple interesting tidbits from the interview Megan Fox gives in the latest issue of Interview.

For starters, she talks to fellow actor Zach Galifanakis in it. For another thing... she cradles a naked mannequin, while donning a black bob, for an unusual photo spread in the magazine. See for yourself:

Strange Photo

Fox actually comes across as more mature and grounded than usual in the feature. Asked about her comparison of director Michael Bay to Hitler, she admitted:

“In the past, I’ve been reluctant to share any bits of truth about myself or to really let people in on my reality. So I have said some things to throw people off the scent of what’s really going on in my life. So I have sort of aided the media in printing these misconceptions, which I regret.”

The actress, of course, has been replaced in Transformers 3 by Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. But many critics believe this will help Megan's career if she uses the opportunity to branch off and take on more layered roles.

She'll next appear in this summer's Jonah Hex.

Television viewers have quite the conundrum on Sunday night.

On one hand, they could watch a scary, scripted show about characters who will go to extreme lengths to get what they want - on the other, they could watch True Blood!

Disick and Kourtney

Indeed, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian return to take over Miami on their nauseating E! reality show, while HBO premieres season three of the most violent, suspenseful, sex-filled drama on TV. Which will you tune in for?

Perhaps this Tale of the Tape comparison can help you decide...

1. MAIN VILLAIN...
True Blood: Eric Northman.
Kourtney and Khloe: Scott Disick.
Edge: True Blood.

2. CHARACTER WE FEEL MOST SORRY FOR...
True Blood: Tara.
Kourtney and Khloe: Mason Dash.
Edge: Kourtney and Khloe.

3. RECURRING BEAUTY...
True Blood: The Queen of Louisiana.
Kourtney and Khloe: Kim Kardashian.
Edge: Kourtney and Khloe.

4. BEST BODY BELONGS TO...
True Blood: Ryan Kwanten.
Kourtney and Khloe: Kourtney.
Edge: True Blood.

5. MOST SCRIPTED FIGHT...
True Blood: Vampires vs. werewolves.
Kourtney and Khloe: THIS.
Edge: Kourtney and Khloe.

THE VERDICT: With a last-minute victory in the category of most scripted, outlandish scenario, Kourtney and Khloe pull the upset! They win this Tale of the Tape by a final score of 3-2. But True Blood characters can take comfort in this fact:

Many of them may wanna rip open our flesh, but we'd still prefer to hang out with them any day of the week.

Which season premiere will you watch?

If there's one thing more digusting than the recently-released Danielle Staub sex tape photos... well, we can't think of it.

But if there's something that bothers us about celebrities across the board, it's when they throw themselves pity parties and/or present themselves in a phony manner. Just be true to who you are, people.

Danielle Staub Picture

In that regard, it was almost refreshing to listen to Staub basically admit she put her own sex tape out and not pretend as if it won't benefit her financially. Until a recent interview with Hollywood Life. Responding to accusations that she's behind the release of Danielle Staub Raw, the reality star said:

“I would never release my own sex tape. I would never do such a thing. I’m already in the media and we’re in season on the show, so why would I do something like this?”

Just a few gueses: more money? More attention? Because you're an insecure, pathetic excuse for a responsible mother?

Staub continued, telling the site: “I had a sexual relationship that was supposed to remain private. I was approached and I’ve been being blackmailed for quite some time and there’s NOTHING I could do to shut it down."

But... wait. Didn't you shut down the release of a previous video? It's called extortion, Danielle. There most definitely are legal steps you could take to prevent it.

“I feel like shit,” Staub concluded. “It bothers me, but I’m not ashamed. I’m a woman... I had a sexual relationship that was supposed to remain private and the fact that it’s not private shows the type of society this is. I’m not ashamed of my body or myself. I have thick skin."

Actually, based on the images that have surfaced, you have wrinky, unattractive skin. We really wish we didn't know that.

A new Danielle Staub sex tape may be creating the most online buzz around The Real Housewives of New Jersey, but it's a Danielle Staub tirade that has reportedly led to the exit of a show cast member.

Multiple sources confirm that Dina Manzo will quit the series after next week's episode, a decision that was hyped in a recent Bravo promo that teased one of the Housewives will be "leaving forever."

Danielle and Dina have clashed throughout the season, but Zap2It reports it was the former's behavior at a recent charity benefit that truly opened up Manzo's eyes to the self-absorbed lunatics with whom she was sharing the screen.

Referring to Staub's outburst at the event (read about it HERE), Manzo said: "For her to make a mockery of it was extra upsetting as a cast member. It was really the last straw for me."

Away from the cameras, Dina runs Project Ladybug, an organization for children with life-threatening illnesses.

Manzo says she was "a thousand percent" against Bravo filming the aforementioned charity gala. The reason?

"I take this very, very seriously. I am so exhausted at the end of the day and I don't make a penny for Ladybug."

Of course, Bravo would only make the following statement in regard to this rumor: "While there is a lot of speculation about who, if anyone, is leaving the cast - viewers will have to tune in on Monday night to find out the truth."

Okay, fine. We'll do so. But only to give Dina a standing ovation when she walks away from the spoiled nuts jobs that surround her.

We have bad news and good news, THG readers. First, the bad:

This season of The Real Housewives of New York City is over. But, now, the good: our reality show correspondent sucked it up and watched Bethenny Frankel's spin-off show last night instead! She's filed the following report on Bethenny Getting Married?

Watching this show is a totally different experience than watching another one of the Real Housewives shows.  The major differences?:  This new spin-off focuses on one likable person and there’s relatively little drama.  My familiar stomach knot of extreme Housewives anxiety never reared its ugly head while watching Bethenny Frankel on her own.  I think I like that... but I’m not sure yet.

I’ll admit that I tune into both The Real Housewives of New York City and The Real Housewives of New Jersey to see all the catfights and shit-storms that crop up each week.  I imagine those of you who also watch these shows choose to come back each week for a similar reason.  Will a show about a Housewife be compelling without the normally high level of kookiness we associate with them?

The Housewives Girl

Also, is anyone interested in watching a show that is simultaneously brand-new and also totally outdated?  We all know Bethenny did in fact get married, which makes the question mark in the show’s title seem oddly placed.  We also know she had a baby girl and that, at least so far, Bethenny and Jason are still married.  Do I want to spend my time watching all these “new” episodes when I already know what the conclusion will be?

So far, my answer is yes.  I find Bethenny charming and relatable.  I just like to root for this girl even though she certainly doesn’t need anyone else cheering her on; she’s enough of a success as it is.

She has a nice smile and a great sense of humor.  She drops funny lines left and right and is perfectly self-deprecating.  When Jason objects to having a young straight man work as Bethenny’s new assistant in their home Bethenny says, “What 24-year-old guy wants to hit this?  I’m sure a 24-year-old wants a knocked-up 39-year-old.”  I love it - it’s funny but also true and quite unlike what we see women saying on most reality television shows.

Cheers to Bethenny!

When we were first introduced to her boyfriend (now-fiancée on the show and now-husband in real life) in this season’s Real Housewives of New York City, I will admit that I found him sort of boring.  He didn’t seem to be a match for Bethenny intellectually or socially.  But now I appreciate his demeanor.  He is the calming and kind "yin" to Bethenny’s hyperactive and crass "yang." 

And Bethenny thinks they are totally compatible and truly similar in most of their likes and dislikes.  She says, “Both of us would rather be eating potato skins at a mall.” Ummm... maybe not.  I can’t quite imagine Bethenny eating fatty-fat potato skins at the Chili’s in the mall, can you?

Jason also appears to be able to come up with his own funny lines.  While looking at Bethenny sitting at the kitchen counter in her pajamas eating frosting for breakfast he observes, “I love how your boobs now rest on your belly.  It’s great.  So sexy.”  He also tells her she is beautiful seemingly every 15 minutes.  What girl wouldn’t love this? 

He’s open about his feelings toward his soon-to-be bride when he says, “To be honest, she was engaged three times.  So I guess I should have a little concern.”  I would share your concern, too, Jason, if I didn’t already know that you actually do get married.

Abby Sunderland is okay.

The 16-year old sailor lost a satellite phone call with her parents yesterday morning, an hour before she set of a distress signal and was feared lost in the Indian Ocean.

But a search plane launched from Australia made radio contact with Sunderland almost 24 hours later, as it was discovered her boat was continually knocked down by huge waves, causing its mast to break and a sail to drag in the water.

Said search coordinator Mick Kinley, acting chief of the Australia Maritime Safety Authority:

"The aircraft (crew) spoke to her. They told her help was on the way and she sounds like she's in good health. She's going to hang in there until a vessel can get to her."

Sunderland had been attempting to become the youngest person to navigate the globe solo, though some critics believe she departed for her trip during a dangerous time of the year.

Abby told the rescue crew, via radio, that she was doing fine, using a space heater to keep warm, and possessed at least two weeks' worth of food.

The French regional administration on the island of Reunion said it had sent a trio boats in her direction and should be able to reach her some time tomorrow. Thank goodness.

Earlier this week, Taylor Swift took down good friend Kellie Pickler in an epic Fashion Face-Off.

Over 75% of readers polled thought the country music superstar looked better at the CMT Awards than the former American Idol finalist.

Was that result due to Taylor's new hairstyle? Or in spite of it?

Below, we give fans a chance to compare Swift's two looks. No matter which you prefer, both options look much better than what Katherine Heigl did with her hair at the London premiere of Killers. YIKES!

  • Curls
  • Taylor Swift in Red

Which hairstyle looks best on Taylor Swift?

Authorities have begun a search for Abby Sunderland.

The 16-year old is attempting to sail around the world on her own, but her parents lost contact with her this morning, soon before the teenager set off a distress signal. She's believed to be in the southern part of the Indian Ocean.

"Everything seemed to be under control," father Laurence Sunderland told The Los Angeles Times. "But then our call dropped and a hour later the coast guard called."

A rescue effort, coordinated by the French-controlled Reunion Islands and Australia, is underway. However, Sunderland is likely hundreds of miles away from land and there's concern over how long it would take a boat to reach her.

Said family spokesman Christian Pinkston: "We've got to get a plane out there quick... They are exhausting every resource to try to mobilize an air rescue including discussions with the U.S. State Department, the U.S. Coast Guard and various international rescue organizations."

Meanwhile, Abby's parents have updated their blog with this statement:

Abby has all of the equipment on board to survive a crisis situation like this. She has a dry suit, survival suit, life raft, and ditch bag with emergency supplies. If she can keep warm and hang on, help will be there as soon as possible. Wild Eyes is designed for travel in the Southern Ocean and is equipped with 5 air-tight bulkheads to keep her buoyant in the event of major hull damage. It is built to Category 0 standards and is designed to self-right in the event of capsize.

Thank you for all of your kind emails and calls. We appreciate your prayers and support.

Let's all hope Abby Sunderland is found alive and well.

It's safe to say that Danielle Staub is taking a different approach to the release of her sex tape than Kendra Wilkinson.

While the latter is faking tears and making excuses for the existence of Kendra Exposed, the Real Housewife of New Jersey doesn't seem too bothered by Huster's plans to unleash Danielle Staub Raw onto the world on June 14.

Granted, Staub hilariously told TMZ this week that her sex tape was "stolen," but she didn't spend very long justifying that obvious lie. She simply said:

"I just decided, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em. What am I left to do? This isn't something I chose to have released, but it's out there, and there's nothing I can do about it."

It's unclear, of course, who Danielle actually wants to beat. Kim Kardashian? Paris Hilton? Shauna Sand? Let's hope the 47-year old's two children set their sights a bit higher than that.

New Sex Tape Star

Adding that she doesn't care what her reality star castmates say about her and her videotaped, naked romp, Staub essentially challenged Kendra to see who could sell more copies.

"I haven't seen hers. I haven't seen mine, either, but... if it's going to do anything, I would hope it does better."

Let's find out from our readers: Which sex tape star would you rather watch in hot, sweaty, nude action?

Just how much has the life of Susan Boyle changed over the last year? Consider this rumor:

There's a good chance the Britain's Got Talent runner-up will perform for Pope Benedict XVI when he visits England in September, TV Guide reports.

Susan Photo

Negotiations are underway, though some believe this might not take place simply because the Pope could get arrested once he touches down in another country, due to his alleged child molestation cover-up. But that seems unlikely to take place.

Assuming he's a free man, Benedict XVI will hold Mass at Glasgow's Bellahouston Park on September 16. If all goes according to plan, Boyle will take the stage then, in front of her most important audience member to date.

No offense, Simon Cowell. But come on.
