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.

It takes an awful lot to make Taylor Lautner's 18th birthday the second biggest Twilight news of the day, but...

Fans anxious for a sneak peek at Eclipse should purchase The Twilight Saga: New Moon on DVD or Blu-ray at Walmart.

That store's "Ultimate Fan Edition" will be the only one to feature a seven-minute preview of the third film in this franchise. Based on a press release from this week, it will include:

  • New interviews with Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner, and Stephenie Meyer;
  • Behind-the-scenes and on-set footage, including the premiere of a scene from Eclipse.

The Ultimate Fan Edition is available for pre-order at this very moment. It's likely to surpass Twilight as the most pre-ordered movie in Walmart history.

New Moon comes to DVD on March 20 and Eclipse hits theaters on June 30... as if you hadn't already seared those dates into your memory ages ago.

From Didi Benami to Janell Wheeler, you seemed to have serious potential in Hollywood if went acoustic and had breasts.

To many, though, Lilly Scott put on the best opening week performance. Don't believe us? Watch how the judges and fellow contestants reacted below:

With New York Fashion Week kicking off today, Kim Kardashian is about to make news for something other than her boyfriend winning the Super Bowl and her ex-boyfriend plowing her on video.

Indeed, the Kardashians will actually play a key role in the global event, as Kim struts down the runway tonight; and then hosts an entire show by herself on Tuesday, when her and her sisters' Bebe-sponsored clothing line is featured.

Is Kim nervous leading up to this debut?

"I don't really get too stressed under pressure, so I think this whole fashion stuff, being behind the scenes and being a part of it, really works for me," she told E! News. "Khloé gets really stressed and frazzled... Kourtney is always really calm and almost like too nonchalant."

As for working with her siblings on something other than contrived magazine covers and reality show scripts?

"It's kind of a dream for me to be able to design with my sisters," Kim said. "We each had such a significant role in designing [the line]... It came out like exactly the way we envisioned it!"

In bodily fluid news, meanwhile, Khloe, has something to share with you about Kourtney.

Alexander McQueen, an internationally known and respected fashion designer, was found dead today in his London home.

Sources are reporting that McQueen committed suicide, as the UK media organization Sky News says he hanged himself in his apartment. No official cause of death has been released, however.

The 40-year-old British designer was often responsible for outfits worn by such stars as Lady Gaga, Rihanna and Prince Charles.

Said rep from McQueen's office in a statement:

"At this stage it is inappropriate to comment on this tragic news beyond saying that we are devastated and are sharing a sense of shock and grief with [McQueen's] family."

A new line from the artist, McQ, was set to be debut this afternoon at New York Fashion Week. He was also scheduled to premiere his new collection at Paris Fashion Week on March 9.

Our thoughts go out to McQueen's friends, family and loved ones.

There's little question that Kara DioGuardi is annoying on American Idol.

She comes across as cocky and condescending, taking extreme offense any time Simon makes a dig in her direction and somehow managing to be neither reassuring to the contestants nor especially criticial. She doesn't even have a Randy Jackson, dawg-like catchphrase.

But there is one debate regarding this singer/songwriter: Is she attractive?

We wondered about this issue when DioGuardi strutted her stuff in a bikini on last May's Idol finale. We're now forced to ponder the question again because Kara is featured on Maxim.com:

Kara
  • Kara in Bikini
  • Hot?
  • Kara for Maxim
  • Pretty in Maxim

During an interview with the men's magazine, DioGuardi touches on her fellow judges. A few excerpts:

On missing Paula Abdul: During the auditions, I missed her. She was so nurturing, and I try to have some of that in my critiques. I wouldn't say I have the maternal instinct that she had, though. I'm a little bit more New York, a little more hard-edge.

On Simon leaving the show: All I can say is the guy can do things not many folks can get away with, and people like when someone is true to himself.

On the addition of Ellen DeGeneres: I was like, "Rock on!" Are you kidding? The thing with Ellen I don't think everybody understands is that she's a huge music lover. That's what you need to be on Idol.

DioGuardi stood up for Ellen yesterday, following the latter's first night as a judge. But we still come back to the pertinent topic at hand.

A former Vice Presidential candidate and current money-hungry celebrity is 46 today (Sarah Palin).

America's most beloved actress, according to many, also celebrates a birthday (Jennifer Aniston).

But one milestone stands above all else on February 11, 2010: Taylor Lautner turns 18! Women around the globe know what this means, as the date has likely been circled on their calendars for months:

They can now think dirty, legal thoughts about the Twilight Saga stud muffin. Of course, Lautner himself doesn't seem that impressed with the occasion. Asked about his plans for it, Taylor said:

“I’ll spend time with family and friends... I don’t like to do anything huge, but it is 18, so, it’s kind of a big one I guess."

Isn't that humility a major reason why so many fans are drawn to this rising star? That and his ridiculous six-pack, of course.

All Taylor Lautner wants for his birthday? A kiss from Taylor Swift - and birthday wishes from YOU! Send them in now.

Lautner will also celebrate the big 1-8 by starring in Valentine's Day, opposite former fling Taylor Swift, which opens this weekend. Will you go see it 12 times?

In honor of this quasi national holiday, we've posted a slew of Taylor Lautner pictures below. Go ahead and ogle, ladies. The police can't do anything about it now...

  • Beach Bowler
  • People's Choice Cutie
  • Teen Wolf
  • Stylin!
  • Shirtless and Sexy
  • Smoldering

A few not-at-all insane fans made the following video in honor of Lautner's big day. Watch it now.

When we initially heard Real Housewife Kelly Bensimon would be posing in Playboy, we asked the obligatory question:

Do you wanna see her naked?

If you answered yes, however, we have troubling news: you won't get a chance to.

In a new interview with E! News, the 41-year old reality TV star said she drew the line at exposing her vagina. The reason?

"I don't think that part of a woman's body is really evocative. The roundness of the hips, the buttocks, the breast, the shoulders, the clavicle, the hair, the teeth - those are things that I think are most evocative and provocative parts of the body. I don't think it's really necessary to show that."

We actually agree. (But if Brooklyn Decker wants to prove us wrong, feel free to bare it all, Mrs. Roddick.)

  • Playboy Tease
  • Kelly Bensimon Nude

The Playboy cover model, meanwhile, insists that she's actually kinda shy. Bensimon said:

"Everyone thinks of me as this exhibitionist, and I'm not. I'm just not that kind of girl. I'm not that kind of model. I wear clothes!"

Except when she doesn't, that is. As for why she chose to take almost all of it off in the March issue of the men's magazine, Kelly replied:

"I'm 41. It's a great image for the rest of the world. Yes, you can have it all. You can have two kids, you can be in shape and you can really enjoy life."

That's not a terrible sentiment, but it would be easier to believe if this wasn't just another example of Bensimon pocketing wads of cash for doing absolutely nothing.

It's been a good week for Michael Lynche.

The American Idol contestant was rumored to have been kicked out of this season's top 24 because his father leaked his inclusion of that group prior to the air date (February 17) on which Fox will announce the semifinalists.

But multiple sources now confirm this was a false report and Lynche is still alive in Hollywood.

As if that weren't enough of a reason to celebrate, Michael learned - on TV, at least, the show was taped a couple weeks ago - on Tuesday night that he's a new father! His wife went into labor just as he was taking the stage to (successfully) audition.

Might this string of good fortunate end with an American Idol title?

Quick background information on Lynche:

  • He describes himself as a mixture of Gnarls Barkley, Outcast and R. Kelly.
  • Both Michael's parents are pastors.
  • He played Division I football at the University of Central Florida.

Along with Andrew Garcia and Casey James, Michael has stood out among the men this week.

Watch his initial audition below.

His heart may still belong to Kristen Stewart, but Robert Pattinson's words of praise are all about a different actress these days.

That's just part of the job for an actor promoting a new movie, as Pattinson stars in Remember Me, scheduled for a March 12 release.

He'll share both the screen and a few lip locks with Emilie de Ravin, who portrays his character's love interest in the drama. Earlier this week, Robert spoke to Entertainment Tonight about the Lost star.

“I was shooting the end New Moon in Italy and we were going through casting for [Remember Me]. The director said, ‘I think I found this girl I think you’ll find quite interesting,’ and sent me this e-mail with her audition tape.

"My Internet connection was so slow that I could only get the beginning, which was her messing up for about 35 seconds. She was really funny messing up and kind of quite charismatic... I thought she was actually doing the scene and kind of just improvising with it and just making it up.”

How will these two mesh on screen? Very well, based on the photo below. Will you go see Remember Me?

According to Nicole Forrester, there's a 95% chance Josh Duhamel is doing a great impression of former Presidential candidate John Edwards.

According to THG, of course, there's 99.99999% chance Nicole Forrester is full of crap.

Josh Duhamel and Fergie at Coachella

The Georgia-based stripper - who claimed in November that she regretted telling the tabloids about her affair with the actor... yet is now milking the allegation for loads of cash - tells The National Enquirer that she's with child.

"Yes, I'm pregnant. Yes, it's probably Josh's. I haven't decided what I'm going to do," Forrester told the newspaper this week.

How confident is Nicole that Duhamel is the father? 95 percent, she said.

The Enquirer is rarely a reliable source, but it did correctly call the Edwards/Rielle Hunter affair.

It was also the first to detail Forrester's supposed night of passion with Fergie's husband, as she claims they had sex - bad sex, mind you - in a $820/night hotel suite after they met at Atlanta's all-nude Tattletales Lounge club.

The publication says Forrester has passed a polygraph test.

Of course, Duhamel must do a lot more than simply deny an affair in order to emulate Edwards. He's still an aide-assisted, state funds-used cover up and sex tape to go!

** UPDATE: Forrester has lashed out at this rumor "I am not pregnant.

"Apparently, because of mistakes I made in the past they feel I'm fair game and can print whatever lies they want just to sell magazines – I want this to stop now.

"This has not only hurt me but other innocent parties, including my children, who have to deal with the bully tactics of other children – that is not fair.
