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.

Lisa Wu Hartwell is out of The Real Housewives of Atlanta; while Phaedra Parks and Cynthia Bailey are in.

The latter is a former model and part-time actress. Bravo has released a press release that lets viewers get to know Bailey a bit better before this series returns for season three on October 4. Consider these important facts about the latest Housewife:

Sheree Whitfield Pic
  • She is not a wife... yet. Bailey's main storyline will revolve around pressure from her boyfriend, Peter Thomas, to get married.
  • She's a long-time friend of NeNe Leakes.
  • She was born in Alabama and moved to New York City at the age of 18 to pursue a career in modeling.
  • She has walked the runways in Paris and Milan and guest-starred on The Cosby Show.

With The Real Housewives of New Jersey soon concluding its season, Bailey and company will have seriously dramatic, scripted shoes to fill when it comes to replicating the insanity of Danielle Staub and the whining of Teresa Giudice.

Will they meet these expectations? Tune in. Find out.

Wyclef Jean will not be the next President of Haiti. His bid for this office has ended before it really began.

Sources tell The Los Angeles Times that the artist has NOT been included on the list of approved candidates who satisfy legal requirements to run in the country's November 28 election.

According to an electoral official, Wyclef does not meet all the legal requirements for the position, which include a home in Haiti; Jean primarily resides in New Jersey.

The singer was born in Haiti and moved to Brooklyn at the age of nine, later joining The Fugees and launching a music career in the United State.

He was among 34 contenders for the Haitian presidency who filed the proper documents this month, but "he is not on the list as I speak," a member of the country's provisional electoral council told the newspaper.

Wyclef's initial bid was met with skepticism by many, including a former Fugees group member and most notably, Sean Penn.

Welcome to Extremist Makeover Homeland Edition.

On last night's edition of The Daily Show, Jon Stewart skewered Fox News by playing its own, ridiculous, dangerous game.

In a segment that focused on the controversial plans to build a mosque a few blocks from Ground Zero in NYC, Stewart first aired a series of clips that showed commentators claiming they believe in freedom of religion... only to add qualifiers for why an Islamic cultural center would be terrible for America.

Dick Morris even went so far as to call it a "terrorist command center." Such a statement may be even more unfounded that Sarah Palin's lack of First Amendment comprehension.

While acknowledging it's understandable for people to feel uncomfortable with the mosque, Stewart went off on Fox News when a guest on that network pulled out a highlighted index card and went about "proving" that the man behind the Islamic center is connected to Iran.

"It's a dangerous game of guilt by association that you can play with anyone," Stewart said. "It's 'six degrees of people who don't eat bacon.'"

To prove his point, the host used his own index card and displayed similar "facts" that connect News Corp owner Rupert Murdoch to Osama Bin Laden, prompting him to ask: "Is Fox News a terrorist command center? I don't know! I just don't know."

Already mature beyond her years, Demi Lovato celebrates a milestone today: the singer/actress turns 18!

Send in your birthday wishes right now, as Demi might need a few words of encouragement. She's currently touring with The Jonas Brothers and doing publicity for Camp Rock 2, all of which places her alongside ex-boyfriend Joe Jonas.

While she and Joe continue to say all the right things and confirm their close friends, let's face: we've all been there. Direct contact with an ex so soon after a break-up is never easy.

But if anyone can make it work, that person is Demi Lovato. She's already talked about being the anti-Miley Cyrus, focusing on "mature and classy" music and refusing to rely on cheap marketing gimmicks to sell any albums. We admire her for that attitude and honor her birthday with this photo montage...

The fifth season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians will be its most boring ever, showing Kourtney playing mother to baby Mason and Khloe simply working at the family's clothing boutique.

JUST KIDDING!

As depicted in this extended promo, the writers have created more drama than ever on the most scripted show TV has to offer. In a new interview with Celebuzz, Kim Kardashian goes into detail on what she, naturally, refers to as "the craziest season yet." Excerpts are below...

Why is the season so crazy? We are all in really different places than where we were last season. Kourtney has Mason, I move in to my own house, and of course this is the first season where I'm single... so with that comes some surprises!

Why is she dating another football player? The reason I said I didn't want to date football players was because they have very strict seasons and schedules and it makes a relationship really hard when you're living apart. That's not to say it's impossible to make it work... it's just harder.

Hot Twit Pic

What is her ultimate career goal? I'm a workaholic, so I'm always taking on new projects. I don't really have an ultimate career goal, just to put 100% into every project I take on. I have my shoe company, ShoeDazzle, we have our Bebe line, a beauty product range, a new fashion and home line with Bruno Schiavi, our first book, Kardashian Konfidential, will be out in November, my second fragrance will be coming out next year... so I've got lots to focus on right now.

What cliched advice can she give about dating? My biggest relationship tip is to trust your heart, learn to compromise and always be honest.

Is there anything we don't know about her family? Pretty much what you see on camera is what you get in real life. People always ask whether the show is scripted or whether we create these crazy situations just for the cameras. Unfortunately our lives really are that insane, LOL.

E! has released another trailed for Keeping Up With the Kardashians. Peep it below.

Are you ready for The Year of the Kat, Vampire Diaries viewers?

When season two of this CW smash premieres on September 9, fans will be treated to twice the Elena Dobrev, as that actress takes on the dual roles of Elena and her evil doppelgänger Katherine.

The latter made a shocking return to Mystic Falls on the first season finale - and, by the looks of the newly-released Vampire Diaries trailer below, will waste no time reuniting herself with ex-lovers Stefan and Damon this fall.

We absolutely can't wait. Check out the latest trailer below and start counting down those days until the premiere now...

** Note: That pretty song in the background? It's sung by the 16-year old trouble-making star of Gossip Girl, Taylor Momsen! Man, she sucks.

Teresa Giudice is $11 million in debt.

She recently went on a $60,000 shopping spree, just months after filing for bankruptcy.

Real Housewives, Real Secrets

Naturally, however, the Real Housewife of New Jersey doesn't take any responsibility for these financial woes. In fact, she blames the public. We're the ones that made her famous, after all.

"If she wasn't on the show, this all would be much easier," a source complained to PopEater. "Everything would be settled by now, but because she is now famous everyone is using the situation to get press for themselves and humiliate her and her family.

"It's honestly got to the point where she's not sure if she wants to come back for another season."

Hey, don't tease us like that, annoying, anonymous friend!

Added this insider, in one of the more ludicrous, nauseating quotes of the year:

"Teresa is sick of everyone knowing all her private financial business. She didn't sign up to be on 'Housewives' so that everyone could look into her bank account. Millions of couples go through what they are going through, except no one knows about it. It's just not fair."

So profound and true. It's really not fair for Teresa to be paid six figures each week so she can act like a self-absorbed spoiled brat and fight with Danielle Staub on every episode.

Someone get this woman a violin, stat!

Just a few weeks after his marriage to Elisabeth Moss ended, Saturday Night Live star Fred Armisen has reportedly found a new love interest - and he didn't need to look very far!

Multiple sources link the 43-year old to 23-year old co-worker Abby Elliott.

"After the split, Fred sought comfort in Abby," a source tells Life & Style. "They just started dating a few months ago. Fred and Abby are getting to know each other in a romantic way and taking things slowly."

Abby Elliott and Fred Armisen

Abby is the daughter of actor Chris Elliott. She joined SNL two years ago, while Armisen has been a cast member since 2002.

Just when you thought Michaele and Tareq Salahi couldn't sink any lower...

The attention-starved couple - best known for crashing a White House party in November 2008 and now featured on The Real Housewives of D.C. - hosted their own premiere party for their Bravo series last week.

At the time, The New York Post quotes Michaele as explaining the event "is for the troops. My dad was a part of the US Army. We wouldn't be here without the troops."

Allegedly, guests were told proceeds from the Salahis' party would go to the charity Honor & Remember, whose site states it "recognizes all military lives lost in defense of our national freedoms. However, a representative of that organization says it didn't receive a penny.

Michaele Salahi and Tareq Salahi

Tickets for the bash cost between $25 and $500. Honor & Remember sources say their charity was promised 40 percent of the profits... and then told there actually weren't any at the end of the evening.

Replied a rep for the world's most pathetic couple: "This was not a Salahi event. They were not privy to the operational and management aspects of this event, nor were they compensated for their appearance."

Replied the rest of the world: YOU TWO SUCK!
