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.

Darius McCrary is back in the news, for all the wrong reasons.

The former Family Matters star, who was accused by ex-wife Karrine Steffans of abuse in June 2008, has been ordered to remain at least 100 yards away from his former flame.

A judge agreed to this temporary restraining order in response to legal documents filed by Steffans this week. They cite two separate encounters with McCrary.

At Miley Cyrus' 18th birthday party last month, the singer was spotted making out with Avan Jogia.

But the slight stir that action created is nothing compared to how some might react to the following video.

Shot by a friend, it depicts the singer taking hits off a salvia-filled bong. It should be noted that possession of this herb is legal in California, but it contains psychedelic qualities - as evidenced here by Miley's reaction to a club goer that resembles Liam Hemsworth:

Says a pal at one point to Cyrus: "You need to do more. You're not as f-cked up as you should be."

We beg to differ. Without passing judgment on Miley, it's clear she's totally lost it in this video.

In the wake of last week's (fake) nude photo scandal, December hasn't been the most PR-friendly month for this star.

... General David Petraeus?!?

Look, Barbara Walters, you can't make a fluff-filled list of people who simply made headlines in 2010 - asking Sarah Palin about her daughter dancing and Justin Bieber about a photographed kiss - and suddenly then ask us to take you seriously as a journalist.

But that's the exact transition Walters tried to make on last night's 10 Most Fascinating People of 2010.

J. Lo and Babs

J. Lo was one hit single away from out-fascinating David Petraeus.

She prattled us about American Idol with Jennifer Lopez and talked fist-pumping with the cast of Jersey Shore, only to then name the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan as the Most Fascinating Person of 2010.

"In life, it seems, there are people who break things and people who fix them. This man is a fixer,” the host said of Petraeus.

Still, as much as we respect and admire the General, based on the previous guests that ranked immediately before him, we can't help but wonder: if The Situation had hooked up with one fewer grenade, might he have earned the top spot?

It stands for the International House of Pancakes, but for one morning this week, IHOP might as well have been an acronym for It's Happening, Omg, People!!!

We're referring, of course, to the breakfast date on which witnesses spied Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez. The two were seen dining and holding hands at an establishment in Philadelphia, hours before they performed at the Q102 Jingle Ball.

TMZ has the photographic evidence:

IHOPPIG

Justin and Selena sat on the same side of the booth, onlookers reported, and appeared "cuddly."

Of course, Bieber took the stage later that evening and serenaded a fan in a romantic manner. So who knows where things stand between him and Gomez. We'll keep you apprised.

Captain Jack is (almost) back.

On May 20, Johnny Depp will reprise the role that truly made him an icon, as he steps back into the swashbuckling shoes of Captain Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. We've got an early look at a scene from the movie here:

Vanessa Paradis, Johnny Depp

The fourth installment of this franchise will find Jack and Barbossa seeking the Fountain of Youth.  Along the way, Depp's beloved character will meet a former flame, as seen above and played by Penelope Cruz.

"What's most interesting about Pirates 4 is you don't have to connect the dots for these subplots and sub-characters," Depp told USA Today. "It felt like a fresh, clean slate."

Neither Orlando Bloom nor Keira Knightley appears in the film. Check out two more scenes from the blockbuster HERE and HERE.

With 2010 drawing to a close, it is with much pride that THG unveils its 10 finalists for its prestigious, Fourth Annual Celebrity of the Year award.

These stars all gave us their best, their worst, their nude pics (sometimes) and their scandals (often). This month, THG honors that greatness. Following the posthumous ranking of Michael Jackson, we present Celebrity of the Year finalist #9...

... Danielle Staub!

Staub the Stripper

It's important to get something straight, of course: we despise Staub. She's the epitome of everything that's wrong in our celebrity-obsessed culture.

Talentless, promiscuous and attention-starved, Danielle is solely famous because she has no shame. She'll do anything for publicity. But it cannot be argued that this strategy has made her a major player in the gossip game throughout 2010.

Is it possible Kim Kardashian and her sisters are not as fashionable as previously believed?

Might a store that carries their name also carry nothing but ugly, overpriced knockoffs?

These are crazy notions, we know, but they're the opinions expressed by Jon Caramanica, a fashion critic for The New York Times who spent time inside SoHo's Dash NYC this week.

Khloe, Kourtney and Kim Kardashian

One man's take on Dash NYC? "As in most theme parks, there wasn't anything worth carrying away but memories."

"Some items were baffling," Caramanica writes. "Even Khloé on her worst pre-marriage day might have struggled with the pink fur shrug ($484)."

Talks of a settlement between Demi Lovato and Alex Welch may be premature.

While lawyers for both sides - the troubled singer and the backup dancer who was attacked by Lovato immediately before she checked herself into rehab - have acknowledged contact, Demi's rep says no money has exchanged hands.

Specifically, this source tells Celebuzz a Chicago Sun-Times story that the actress paid Welch six figures in a settlement is "completely fabricated."

Attorney Stuart Slotnick, meanwhile, doubts the marks on Welch's face are enough to help her win any court case.

"If people could sue one another for causing bruises, we would all be in a lot of trouble," he says. "[If there isn't] some serious injury, a lawsuit may not be appropriate."

From Passenger 57 to Inmate Number 43355-018...

Despite numerous attempts to overturn his conviction, including a last-minute plea on Larry King Live this week, Wesley Snipes is officially a ward of the state. He checked into McKean Federal Correctional Institution in Lewis Run, Pennsylvania today.

Federal Bureau of Prison spokesman Edmond Ross said the processing of the actor - who has been sentenced to three years for failure to file taxes - went off "without incident."

Christina Aguilera kept her clothes on for the premiere of Burlesque in Madrid, Spain last night.

Indeed, the singer-turned-actress appeared in great spirits on the red carpet, despite the leaked, racy photo controversy surrounding her back home.

Let's just hope no one gets injured in this Burlesque battle...
