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 may be a beautiful summer weather across the country, but many people will spend at least two hours inside a movie theater this weekend.

That's because each Inception review out there is more positive than the one before it.

Anchored by Leonardo DiCaprio and directed by Christopher Nolan, this film is garnering Oscar talk and will undoubtedly dominate the box office for at least the next week or so.

On Tuesday night, the movie's stars and other celebrities walked the red carpet at the Hollywood premiere of Inception. See who showed up below, led by Leo himself of course...

Great news, Mad Men fans: a cast member is posing in Playboy!

Not as great news: it's not Christina Hendricks.

Instead, lesser known actress Crista Flanagan has gone topless in the latest edition of the men's magazine. She plays switchboard operator Lois Sadler and jumped at the chance to not only show off her figure, but to do it in a 1960s-style shoot.

Flanagan appears on a pair of covers (below) that were modeled after shots from that era, along with an eight-page layout that's consistent with the retro theme inside.

"I really did feel like I was re-creating something and that I was bringing to life these women who already posed for Playboy in the '60s," she told The New York Daily News. "If I tell a friend I did this, they think I'm completely naked... This was not Crista filling your wish list out. This was trying to capture an era."

Flanagan added that "I haven't been seen as a sexy person," but that should change now.

As for revealing any Mad Men spoilers, the actress is mum.

"I remember, even last season, I chopped that man's foot off with the tractor, we shot it weeks and weeks before it happened," she said of a scene. "I just wanted to run out and tell everyone."

Alas, she did not.

Over the past couple weeks, Tammy Lynn Michaels has penned a couple blog entries that painted Melissa Etheridge in a very poor light.

The most recent poem claims Michaels does not have a dollar to her name, a statement that comes soon after this former actress filed for full custody of her and the singer's children.

However, newly released court documents show that Tammy might be exaggerating her situation - and asking for unrealistic demands from her partner of nine years.

In the papers, Etheridge says Michaels is using their twins as "pawns," citing a July 6 visit to Boston where the pair had agreed Melissa would spend time with the kids. Instead, she received a text message from Michaels (It stated: "My plans changed, sorry."), along with the custody filing.

As for Tammy's claim that she's broke and Etheridge refuses to support her and the kids, these documents also reframe that argument.

The singer's lawyer told a judge Monday that his client has been giving Michaels $2,000 a month and paying all of her household expenses. But this isn't enough for Tammy's lifestyle.

She wants an increase in spousal support, along with $4,300 in child support payments. For what purposes? Michaels listed her monthly expenses in court:

  • $6,000 for rent.
  • $1,500 for groceries.
  • $800 for eating out.
  • $50 for laundry and cleaning.
  • $5,000 for clothes.

Yes, these are her monthly expenses. It's a bit hard to feel sympathy for someone that spends $2,300 each month on food and $5,000 each month on clothing.

Last week, a judge shot down the actress' demand for $25,000 to cover her attorney fees and another $25,000 for daily living.

Typically, when a celebrity celebrates a birthday, we aren't sure what to get him or her.

After all, these people are already rich and famous and living a life many others would kill for.

But 90210 star AnnaLynne McCord turns 23 today and we've already ordered her present: a gift certificate to Chili's. The actress needs a cheeseburger or two dozen... STAT!

That said, there's one individual who doesn't care about McCord's weight or lack of acting talent: Kellan Lutz. These two have been dating, on and off, for years.

If we had this hunk to roll around with in bed every night, we'd probably burn thousands of calories and look sickly, too.

Click on the following photos of McCord in honor of her birthday and send in your best wishes for her now. THG is also accepting food donations on her behalf.

The feud between GLADD and The View is far from over.

On June 22, comedian D.L. Hughley co-hosted the ABC talk show. He and Sherri Shepherd got into a discussion about the prominence of HIV among African-Americans, both agreeing that it exists because gay black men ("on the down low") have sex with women.

"When you look at the prevalence of HIV in the African American community, it's primarily young women who are getting it from men who are on the down low," Hughley said.

However, the Centers for Disease Control has provided numbers that disprove this theory.

Therefore, GLADD has demanded a retraction and an apology from the show, taking out a full page ad in Monday's Variety expressing its displeasure with ABC and the hosts.

Yesterday, the network released the following statement:

"[D]uring a discussion about blood donation and the transmission of HIV/AIDS, a guest moderator on the show expressed his interpretation of data about one way the virus can be transmitted. The topic of HIV/AIDS has been raised many times over the show's 13 years, with many voices and opinions contributing to a conversation that we expect to continue as long as The View is on the air."

That was it. Doesn't exactly say much, does it?

In response, Cindi Craeger - GLAAD's director of national news - described the statement as "evasive" and said: "This program reaches millions of viewers and ABC must ensure that its platforms aren't used to perpetuate dangerous falsehoods that put our community in harm's way."

There is a fine line between expressing one's opinion and tossing around discriminating statements that contradict facts. Did Hughley and The View cross it? You tell us.

Can we take away the question mark in the title of Bethenny Getting Married? now please? She's both hitched in real life and even on her TV show.

This week, her and husband Jason Hoppy jetted off to St. Bart for their honeymoon, which included skinny dipping, anxiety and more. Also, Bethenny posed for a pregnant nude photo shoot. Take it away, THG Real Housewives correspondent....

With their fabulous wedding behind them and Shawn getting himself cryogenically frozen so he can get some serious rest, Bethenny and Jason jet off to honeymoon on St. Bart’s.  “I’m trying to be the sexy new bride but I’m a disaster,” Bethenny says. 

This statement sets us up for a week filled with immense fun and laughter as well as hormone-induced crying jags and panic attacks, the highs and the lows occurring most likely within two seconds of each other.

The Housewives Girl

Once on the island, they hop into their rental BMW and speed off across the gorgeous landscape.  Of course they are renting a BMW - can you imagine these two in a Ford Fiesta?  They arrive at the resort where they have a private villa with butler service.  Their villa is gorgeous, enormous, and complete with their own huge pool with giant turtles wandering around it, munching contentedly on tropical grasses.

As soon as their luggage hits the floor, Bethenny is immediately topless and she and Jason are in the pool.  “When those doors opened, honestly, you took my breath away,” Jason tells Bethenny about their wedding day. 

They say many sweet things to each other and what little clothes they were wearing end up in a sodden heap pool-side.  Gigantic iguanas look on suspiciously from the bushes. Jason and Bethenny’s entire submerged and naked bodies are blurred out.

Next, the two hit the beach.  “I really feel like a pig that needs to be roasted on the beach at a luau,” Bethenny tells us.  Jason is particularly fond of commenting on Bethenny’s cankles and her “sausage-link” toes and, luckily, she has a good attitude about it all.  She tells us repeatedly that she feels fat and gross but really she must be feeling pretty confident because her bathing suit is essentially a bikini and pretty skimpy at that.  Plus, she looks amazing. 

Sure she’s pregnant but she’s totally toned.  It’s as hot as a seven months pregnant woman can possibly look.  Also, she is sporting a big, floppy fluorescent pink hat and she will wear this hat pretty much non-stop throughout the rest of the honeymoon.

Arriving back at their suite, they find a large, wet animal poop on the floor.  Bethenny dry heaves, runs through the villa, and freaks out.  They are sure it’s one of those huge iguanas done snuck into their bungalow and took a dump but their search turns up nothing. 

Then, they wax a happy trail of dark hair that has developed on Bethenny’s belly.

Bump hair successfully removed, the newlyweds have breakfast (pink hat in attendance) and discuss a number of things, including:

A Michigan couple that tried to blackmail John Stamos was convicted of conspiracy and using email to threaten a person's reputation today.

In December, Allison Coss and Scott Sippola were arrested for asking $680,000 from the actor in exchange for supposedly compromising photos they possessed of him.

Stamos, John

On the stand this week, Stamos admitted to meeting Coss on vacation a few years ago and keeping in contact with her - but vehmently denied allegations of drug use and inappropriate sexual behavior.

Following this testimony, as well as investigations that did not turn up any of the comprosing evidence against Stamos the couple claimed to have, a jury found the defendents guilty. They are headed to jail.

"I would like to thank the court, the FBI and the US Attorney's office for their swift and efficient dealings in connection with this case," Stamos said in a statement.

Added Stamos:

"The allegations made regarding an inappropriate relationship are completely untrue. "These slanderous allegations to smear my reputation were part of their defense to redirect attention away from the federal crime of extortion. There was no hot tub, no drugs, no nudity and nothing sexual in nature involved in my friendship with this woman. They lied about everything from a pregnancy to compromising photos.

I'm grateful these two criminals have been found guilty and I plan to go home to be with my family and friends and prepare to get back to work."

That work will include a guest-starring stint on Glee this fall.

Tila Tequila may not be appearing on the next season of Celebrity Rehab, but viewers can rest assured:

Janice Dickinson has the train wrecked, nut job quota filled.

Janice Dickinson for PETA

The former model and all-around insane person (she once copped to playing a role in her father's death) will seek Dr. Drew Pinsky's help with alcohol abuse on this insulting joke of a reality show, as first reported by TMZ.

Dicksinson last made news in December when she posed with her boyfriend and caused numerous onlookers to vomit.

While the show tries to recruit Jennifer Capriati, the only "stars" currently booked to join Janice on the new season of Celebrity Rehab are Bonnie Pointer, Jeremy London and his ex-wife.

While Eclipse continues to rake in the box office dough, Melissa Rosenberg is already looking ahead to Breaking Dawn.

That movie's screenwriter spoke to Hollywood Life recently and shared scintillating news with Twilight Saga fans. Simply put, she said: “We want the eroticism of the sex scenes.”

Just how much of Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson will viewers see? Rosenberg remained coy, but added:

"If you really look at the books, how much are you really seeing? I think [the movies] might wind up being saucier than the book because you’re actually seeing skin-on-skin and the horror of the birth scenes. We’re not shying away from it.”

Meanwhile, it's already been confirmed that Breaking Dawn will be split into two movies. But where in the story will this take place?

“We’re still debating the exact moment," Rosernberg said. "But it’ll fall down to the first half of Bella as a human and being pregnant and a newlywed and the second half being Bella as a vampire and a parent. Somewhere in the middle of that, the break will come.”

The first installment of Breaking Dawn will hit theaters on November 18, 2011.

Don't celebrate too much, Landon Donovan.

We know you just learned you didn't impregnate some British woman, and that's worth a fist pump or two. But there's another challenge ahead of you below.

The soccer star - whose goal against Algeria was awarded the 2010 ESPY for Best Moment - walked the awards show red carpet last night with ex-wife Bianca Kajlich. These two are pretty much back together at this point.

However, does that mean they can defeat a steady, married pair such as Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett in a THG Fashion Face-Off? That's up to readers to decide. Do so now!
