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.

Okay, fine, Fox. We'll tune in for Super Bowl XLV.

While the network has deemed an adultery-themed website as inappropriate for the February 6 broadcast, it's gladly given a greenlight to a Best Buy as that will feature Justin Bieber and Ozzy Osbourne.

"Justin Bieber is the biggest star out there, but that's not why he's in the spot," Best Buy marketing chief Drew Panayiotou told USA Today. "He symbolically represents something important to the brand message."

The company won't reveal just what Bieber and Osbourne will be up to in the commercial (which was filmed this month at Universal Studios). But it will air in the third quarter.

"Very rarely do you get a big brand looking to evolve into something else," Panayiotou says, adding that Bieber will also represent the store in upcoming Facebook ads. "We want to get this brand to a different place."

As the new Candie's girl, Vanessa Hudgens manages to look both cute and sexy.

Following on the heels (and sun dresses) of Britney Spears and Fergie, Hudgens has taken over as the face of this junior brand's spring campaign. She says: “Ever since I saw Fergie do the ads for Candie’s, I fell in love. It’s such an honor."

The ads, shot by photographer Tony Duran, will appear in magazines and billboards this March, but you can check out a couple of the shots below. (Candie's is sold exclusively at Kohl's).

NeNe Leakes has apologized to fans for her recent behavior on The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

But the irritating reality star's stepson has a message for his father's wife: What about us?!?

Damian Leakes, the 34-year old child of Gregg Leaks, refers to him and his five siblings as the "forgotten side of the family." He whines to Radar Online that NeNe never says a word about them on TV.

“She knows us and she knows we have issues from about 15 years ago and it’s time to address them. She’s become a household name with our last name, but we’re non-existent.”

Before NeNe and Gregg divorce, Damian wants to make a pitch - for his own reality series, of course.

"A TV show could be a building process for Gregg and his kids because no one ever knew he had kids. There’s a lot of healing that needs to go on and a lot of animosity.”

Damian blames NeNe for "the crumbling of our family" and holds nothing back in his assessment of her:

“We think of her as selfish and a center-of-attention freak. She wants all of the attention and this is before a camera ever got on her... She’s ducking and dodging us like a bullet."

It's the most pressing question in television today. No, not how the heck did three million people tune in to watch Kourtney and Kim take NYC.

But: who will replace Regis Philbin on Live?

The veteran host announced his impending retirement from the show this month, although he's yet to give a date for his final show. Still, talk is rampant over who will replace him.

According to Entertainment Weekly, ABC has a long list of potential Kelly Ripa co-hosts, but we've narrowed it down to the most likely ones here. Got a preference? Vote on them now.

Peggy Tanous describes herself as the "life of the party," but it hasn't always been that way.

The new Real Housewives of Orange County cast member says she was partly inspired to join the show because she saw it as an opportunity to recover from postpartum depression, something she battled after the birth of daughters London, 3, and Capri, 1 1/2.

"It was kind of a perfect way for me to kind of get me back in the swing of things but not take me away from my family too much," says Tanous, who is friends with Alexis Bellino.

While Tanous tells Us Weekly she has a "strong personality," she also insists that she gets along with her fellow stuck-up cast members.

"I didn't clash with anyone! Tamara [Barney] and I hit it off the most. She's got a daughter a couple years older than London and our personalities are alike. She's really funny and she jokes around a lot and so do I."

The Real Housewives of Orange County returns to Bravo on March 6.

Tila Tequila has overcome a lot in the past year, such as imaginary miscarriages and accusations of murder.

But the blogger has come out of it a better person, one who totally shies away from the spotlight now. Okay. That's not true. She's just stopping drinking for now.

So Not Hot

"Last year, I was going through a really tough time," Tila told Radar Online. "I have my doctor and my therapist and I went constantly I got sober."

From Charlie Sheen to Tila Tequila, CBS continues to set a good example for all viewers.

How much has Tequila - who will actually guest star on this week's episode of $#*! My Dad Says, above - changed? She says:

"I want to cover up more and I don't want to show too much cleavage. I feel like an adult now. I feel like a woman. The girl last year... I feel like that girl is so far away. I feel like she's dead."

It's safe to say Glee won't be airing a Kings of Leon tribute episode any time soon.

In a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, series creator Ryan Murphy holds little back when asked about the band refusing to allow the show to use their songs. He says:

"F--k you, Kings of Leon. They're self-centered assholes and they missed the big picture. They missed that a 7-year-old kid can see someone close to their age singing a Kings of Leon song, which will maybe make them want to join a glee club or pick up a musical instrument.

"You can make fun of Glee all you want, but at its heart, what we really do is turn kids on to music."

In response, lead singer Caleb Followill basically said: Huh?!?

Steve Harvey is no longer letting his lawyer do his talking.

A few days after the comedian's first wife, Mary Harvey, unleashed a verbal, videotaped assault against him, the best-selling author has spoken out against the allegations that he cheated on her and turned the couple's son against her.

"I know the truth," Harvey said. "My son is coming into the room crying. And that's what hurts me, why you would do this. And I don't even understand the purpose. I mean, I got you're mad, but [she's talking about] 12 years ago. That's what we're doin' now?"

Steve and Mary got married 1996 and divorced nine years later. Son Broderick was born in 1997 and Steve has since remarried.

"The truth's gonna come out," Harvey said. "Because once you go public, you allow people to start asking questions... I'm just more concerned about my son, who I have total custody of. He doesn't deserve the questions."

Halle Berry is not the only beauty in a custody battle with an ex.

Adam Dell, the ex-boyfriend of Top Chef judge Padma Lakshmi and the father of 11-month old Krishna, has filed documents in a Manhattan court that seek to make the former couple's custody agreement official.

Dell and Lakshmi had arranged a legal system-free deal that allowed the former to visit his daughter nine days per month, but that contract will be nullified when she turns a year old on February 20.

With the relationship between the two having turned sour - partly, TMZ reports, over Dell's hatred of his child's name - the pair will now go to court to decide parental guidelines.

Friends of the model/author says she feels "bullied" by her ex and fears this is Dell's way of forcing her into a relationship with him.

UPDATE: In a statement, the star's rep says: "Ms. Lakshmi believes that family matters should be kept private. She asks that those who join her in wanting the best for her daughter do the same."
