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.

Sheryl Crow has put her money where her boobs are.

The breast cancer survivor opened the Sheryl Crow Imaging Center in Los Angeles today, a facility that features screening and diagnostic technologies for the detection of this horrible disease.

As noted in a press release, this development is part of the larger Pink Lotus Breast Center, the nation's first complex dedicated solely to the prevention, screening, diagnosis and treatment of this type of cancer, which Crowe was diagnosed with in 2006.

Said the singer in a statement:

"Joining forces with the Pink Lotus Breast Center has provided me with a wonderful platform to create awareness and encourage the millions of American women over 40 to get their annual mammogram."

Can't a muscle-bound hunk just chill in a pimped-out RV without filing a lawsuit?!?

That's what Taylor Lautner would like to know, as the Twilight Saga star has been forced to take legal action this week against a company that promised him an awesome new trailer.

Hot Threesome

In documents obtained yesterday by TMZ, Lautner says he struck a deal with McMahon's RV to purchase a personal trailer for approximately $300,000. It was scheduled to arrive on the set of Abduction by June 21. But here's where the controversy comes in:

The trailer... never arrived!

As a result, Lautner has sued the company for breach of contract and fraud, asking for unspecified damages because - as the lawsuit states - he's "emotionally distressed" and "annoyed" by the situation.

Man, we wish we could sue someone every time we got annoyed by that individual. Just imagine all the paperwork Miley Cyrus would be forced to deal with!

Less than two weeks after she was hospitalized for a pill overdose, Fantasia Barrino is not in therapy or rehab.

Instead, she's in front of the camera, explaining the reasons behind her suicide attempt ("I just wanted out," she tells VH1) and, of course, promoting the new album that just came out.

In an interview with ABC's Good Morning America today, the singer said was asked about the troubling incident and replied:

"I think I was just overloaded with everything, with carrying six years of so much. I always take a licking and keep on ticking... it just became heavy for me to the point that I just wanted to be away from the noise... There's so much that people don't understand. They just see the glitz and the glamour, and they feel like life is so perfect, but we're human and we go through things."

The main things these days have been an exposed affair with Antwaun Cook and a possibly pending lawsuit from his wife, Paula.

But Fantasia insists this relationship was NOT the reason she aimed to take her life on August 9.

"I think everybody feels like I tried to harm myself over a man, but you know I've been in a lot of bad relationships," she said. "I think that had somewhat to do with it because it was so heavy, it was brand new information, I was already going through so much.

"But I think it was just six years of everything, of me holding all that stuff on the inside and not letting it out... I got very, very tired."

She's not too tired to talk up her CD, "Back to Me," or star in a reality show that premieres on September 19, however. Such a confluence of events and publicity has many wondering just how authentic Barrino's actions have been over the past few weeks.

We'll leave readers to debate that topic. Below, you can watch Fantasia's entire interview on ABC and form an opinion.

One way or the other, it seems highly unlikely that Kara DioGuardi will return to American Idol next season.

While the show refuses to comment on speculation regarding its panel in 2011, Steven Tyler is all but confirmed as a new judge - and a new report states DioGuardi wants to exit of her own volition even if producers want her back. In fact:

"She went to Fox two months ago and told them she didn't want to do another season," a source told E! News. "She's ready to move on. She did two years and thinks that's enough."

Many Idol viewers seem to agree. Kara isn't exactly a viewer favorite.

Will Kara DioGuardi tell American Idol fans to talk to the hand? Her status is still unknown.

However, the songwriter's contract extends for another year. So even if she wants out, the show could keep Kara around if it can't reach an agreement with Jennifer Lopez or other rumored replacements.

"It's frustrating because she can't even take any meetings," the insider said. "Everyone wants to know what her schedule will be like, but she doesn't know. What happens if Fox tells her they still want her for next season?"

The network hasn't said a word about DioGuardi's status yet. Do you want her back on the show?

If the mother of your daughter died from a drug problem many people attributed to her life in the spotlight, would you take every opportunity to pose said child in front of the paparazzi and on magazine covers?

No? Then you're name is not Larry Birkhead.

The sorry excuse for a human being invited tabloid photographers to daughter Dannielynn's birthday party last year, which would have been his most disgraceful act as a parent to date... except that he actually did the same to Anna Nicole Smith's grave the year before. Yes, her grave.

Not as Cute as It Seems

Now, Birkhead has cashed in on his daughter again, revealing pieces of information about Dannielynn to E! News because... he's getting paid piles of money for it? He feels a responsibility to the public to share secrets about an innocent four-year old? Form your own opinions on this despicable man below, as you read excerpts from his interview:

On missing Smith: "I know what I had with Anna, and I have a 38-pound reminder walking around my house every day."

On how awesome of a father he is: "[Dannielynn is] with me every single day. I spend tons of time with her. That is one of my biggest accomplishments. She knows the happiness she gets at home and from the people around her."

On Anna's drug problem: "If she stopped taking methadone she could have died, the baby could have died."

On similarities between Dannielynn  and Anna Nicole: "She already has motherly like instincts. She's playing with her mom's dolls."

Read the full interview with E! now.

UPDATE: A disclaimer ...

Larry Birkhead is not a pimp in the literal sense that he manages a harem of prostitutes. He is merely a whore, figuratively, for the celebrity gossip industry, and likely making serious bank off his young daughter via features such as this. Thank you.

Good Friday is arguably the holiest day on the Christian calendar, as it precedes Easter Sunday and commemorates the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and his death at Calvary.

Now, this is why we love Kanye West: the man is so hilariously egotistical that he hasn't merely Tweeted a plan to release a new single each week until Christmas - he's deemed the occasion "good Fridays." Perhaps we should just call him Jesus West from now on.

Wrote the rapper: I know yall need the music so I’m dropping 1 new song every weekend until Xmas. It may be my song it may be a new Jay song etc...

I’m calling it good Fridays. Yall know every Friday yall gone have a new joint from our family. We look at the game completely different now. It’s about the fans. No more holding back. That’s why I dropped see me now… It wasn’t about me it was about the Summer the BBQs etc.

Expect Kanye to remain in the news for awhile. He's scheduled to perform at next month's Video Music Awards and he'll likely collaborate with Justin Bieber in the near future.

That sound you hear is teenage girls screaming... and a few Christians groaning.

If rumors are to be believed, Danielle Staub appeared in her final, non-reunion Real Housewives of New Jersey episode last night.

Fortunately, the mentally unbalanced nut job gave our reality show correspondent plenty to write about, as she wraps up her hilarious reviews below. Enjoy...

Saying goodbye to this show felt a lot like when I was a summer camp counselor and I had to say goodbye to the most annoying girl in my cabin.  It’s sort of like, oh, 'I’m going to miss her so much even though she’s mostly a gigantic pain in my ass.'

The Housewives Girl

You know that once in awhile (and I mean ONCE in a LONG, LONG while) she could be funny or entertaining and you start thinking that the times where she was funny and entertaining were much more numerous than they actually were.  And you get all nostalgic and think you selfishly pissed away your good times together, that you were a bitchy counselor who just focused on all the stupid shit she did.

And you throw yourself onto your metal bunk bed with the 30-year-old, plastic-encased, stained, thin-as-hell mattress and allow your eyes to fill with tears because you know you’ll never see each other again and you wish, despite all you experienced with her that summer, that you could catch one last glimpse of her and give her one final hug goodbye.

Well, sort of like that.

I’m not going to lie, I am happy to unlock from my ankle the ball and chain that is this show.  I toss it gleefully in the river.  But it did have its good moments.  Sometimes it was kooky and silly and gleeful in its trashiness.  But, nevertheless, I say goodbye for now, Franklin Lakes!  Goodbye, batshit crazy Housewives!  Let’s hope you manage to survive until next summer when we meet again.

The penultimate episode started out with the whole House clan heading over to Teresa’s house to feast upon bowls of olive oil with hunks of Parmigiano-Reggiano drowning in it.  They discuss, of course, the Prostitution Whore and the case against Ashley, the moron daughter.  Caroline is getting all hot and bothered about this stuff. 

“She just is so driven to try and hurt every single one of us.  The bottom line is, she just won’t go away.”  Caroline has the brilliant plan that she should go set things straight with our beloved Danielle.  (Hmmm..I wonder who came up with this idea?  Maybe…THE PRODUCERS?)  Caroline doesn’t seem to remember that every other Housewife has tried this only to have their various encounters with Danielle go spectacularly awry.  Caroline says she’ll don a bikini and dive into the mud pit with the Prostitution Whore as long as her homies have her back.  

Evil Danielle

Back at her moldering cave, Danielle gets Caroline’s text.  Caroline has written, “I’d like to put an end to all the nonsense,” and the Prostitution Whore doesn’t like that.  But Danielle is a strong, independent lady now and she’s going to this little get-together, come hell or high water.  She reminds her daughters to trust her because they’ve been praying about it.

What does this prayer sound like, you ask?  Danielle:  “Dear Gawd, please flip Dina’s Mercedes into a ditch.  And give Caroline the flesh-eating virus.  And have Jacqueline get run over by a freak escape bullet train.  And let Teresa’s daughters cannibalize her.  Oh, and let me find my biological mom and please make her an heiress.  Amen.”  Daughters:  “Dear Gawd, please send Child Protective Services to our house right now.  Mommy scares us.” 

In Danielle’s own words, “I’m not in fear no more.”  Her daughters roll their eyes as Mommy Dearest declares she will be heading into battle. 

“I will get the dignity and the respect that I deserve,” she declares.  Of course you will, honey!  Just like you did at the table-flipping dinner.  I mean, just like you did when you met with Dina at the restaurant.  No, I mean just like you did at the baby cancer dinner thing!  No, wait!, I mean just like you did at the fashion show!!  NO, HOLD ON, just like you did when you took Ashley to court!!!  Oh, screw it. 

You’ll never get the dignity and respect you deserve, Danielle, because you deserve no dignity and respect.  You deserve to be thrown face-first down into a sewer in a very heavily populated urban neighborhood.

Poor, poor Discount Danny shows up at Danielle’s fortress of solitude.  He hasn’t been fed or watered in a few days and is just looking for Danielle to throw some scraps his way.  Unfortunately for him, he gets the 4-1-1 on Danielle’s text from Caroline while he squats on the stairs in his stocking feet, stomach growling. 

Discount’s theory is that Caroline is the ruler of the clan.  He’s sort of listening to the Prostitution Whore but you can see in his eyes that he’s over it too.  He wants a hot meal and a spin-off show or he’s giving up this charade of being friends with Danielle.  Even trashy ex-con bodyguards with Supercuts haircuts and Wal-Mart jeans can take only so much.

A competition that started with controversy over body paint concluded with Jimena Navarrete being named Miss Universe last night.

The Miss Mexico title holder beat out an impressive 82-woman field in Las Vegas, which included Miss USA Rima Fakih. She did not place in the final 15.

Upon taking home the crown, Navarrete made it clear she plans to promote Mexican pride throughout her reign, saying: "I want the whole world to know about my country and my people. I imagine that they're all going crazy in Mexico right now. I'm extremely proud."

The second-ever champion from her native country, Navarrete is a model. She was faced with questions about Arizona's recent immigration law during the pageant and replied afterward:

"Every country has the right to impose and enact their laws. But I tell you that all the Mexicans and the Latins that are living here in the United States are hardworking people - people who want to improve on their quality of life."

See that, Carrie Prejean? Not all contestants speak like third graders when asked questions about current events.

Mexican President Felipe Calderon is clearly proud of his nation's new spokesperson. He said in a statement: "Her triumph is a source of pride and satisfaction for all Mexicans, who see in her the fruits of perseverance.

Miley Cyrus has made it clear: her next movie, LOL, will showcase a mature, edgy side to the actress.

Based on a few leaked script pages, we can confirm: she isn't kidding!

In Cut-Offs

In the movie, Miley portrays a rebellious teen named Lola. As first reported by Hollywood Life, this character loses her virginity in the film; smokes pot; makes out with a female friend; drinks a lot; and, oh, accidentally shows her mom her Brazilian wax.

Suddenly, Cyrus' on-stage antics look tame by comparison, huh?

Hannah Montana Who?!? Miley Cyrus turns 18 in November. Look out, world! Farewell, pants!

Miley isn't the only young actress ratcheting up the raciness in the film.

Twilight star Ashley Greene plays Lola's rival, a girl nicknamed “The Post It” because  “she sticks to every guy.”

There's no release date scheduled yet for LOL, but it should hit theaters in 2011. Will you go see it?

Following last night's fifth season premiere of her family's reality show, which focused on Kourtney Kardashian refusing to leave baby daddy Scott Disick, sister Khloe has a message for her sibling.

At least we think she does. It's difficult to interpret her immature Twitter-speak. Over the course of several Tweets, Khloe made her feelings on Scott known. She wrote:

I dont allow peps 2 treat me like crapthen open my arms up 2 them so quickly. Kourt needs 2 think be4 she goes back in2 her comfort routine. I need 2 c a REAL change before I feel comfortable letting Mase and Kourt around him.

I'm there 4 Kourt by not letting scott continue 2 hurt her. Tough love it is. Im not going to 4give some1 6 times. Ur not me.

Words to think about, huh, Kourt? We mean that literally. One has to really read each syllable slowly.

  • Kourt Pic
  • Khloe in Black

Of course, any celebrity gossip follower - or human being with a pulse - knows that Khloe is simply Tweeting this nonsense to make headlines.

After all, episodes of Keeping Up with the Kardashians were filmed months ago. Since then, Scott has reportedly entered rehab and the family is mostly giving him another chance.

Looks like some1 has 2 get caught up on her own show's scripts b4 jumping 2 judgment. u hear us, klo E?
