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.

Who knew Carlos Santana was such a romantic?!?

The legendary musician proposed to his girlfriend, drummer Cindy Blackman, on Friday night - and he did so on stage, during a concert in Illinois!

After she said yes, the pair kissed, while fans cheered them on.

"Cindy and I are blessed to have found each other," Santana said in a statement released to MTV News. "Being in love is a gift from the universe, and the spirit and vibrations that come with it are infinitely powerful. I look forward to expressing that incredible energy through my music, and in helping to tip the balance toward more love in the world with what Cindy and I share."

He came in third on season nine of American Idol.

But Casey James might wanna finish first in the heart of a reality show contestant, he admits, recently expressing an interest in The Bachelor.

After everyone's favorite host/pimp, Chris Harrison, ran into James at a party last month, he told the singer that he'd perfect for the ABC series. Responded James to OK! Weekly:

“I’ll try anything once. I’m always up for a new experience.”

Suave Ladies Man

Plenty of room under these arms, ladies!

James is busy with the American Idol tour right now, but you can imagine his reaction when pitched the idea of 25 women competing for his attention: “Oh, God, that sounds horrible!” he joked, adding: “Sign me up!”

When Casey first auditioned for the Fox competition, Kara DioGuardi openly swooned over him and made James take off his shirt. He's been considered a singing stud ever since.

If James doesn't take on the role, the next Bachelor will likely be one of Ali's castoffs from this season: Chris, Roberto, Kirk or Frank.  Either way, desperate women will sign up for the show and ABC producers will script every event that takes place on it.

Do you think James should be the next Bachelor?

It's about to get REALLY Hot in Cleveland.

Joe Jonas has signed on to guest star on an August episode of this TV Land sitcom, which stars Betty White, Valerie Bertinelli, Jane Leeves and Wendie Malick. He'll portray the son of Bertinelli's character.

Joe

Jonas is best known for his vocal chops, of course - but he and his brothers have acting experience on JONAS and in the movie Camp Rock.

Hot in Cleveland has already been picked up for a season season, meaning this may become a recurring role for the young heartthrob. Commence screams of delight, ladies, in 3... 2... 1...

Tila Tequila has exploited the death of Casey Johnson for personal gain; stripped down for the camera; and even faked a suicide attempt.

But she may have finally hit rock bottom with the following news:

Nutty Tila

Tila will NOT be taking part in the next edition of Celebrity Rehab.

The reality star had blogged about her inclusion on this VH1 series in May, saying she'd finally agreed to get treatment for her addiction to Ambien. But when Radar Online asked her rep if Tequila would be a cast member on the show, he simply replied: "No."

Seriously, what does it take to get booted from Celebrity Rehab?!? Dr. Drew Pinsky lives to profit off the troubles of Z-list stars.

Reports say the show is still scheduled to begin filming this month. Only Jason Wahler and Jeremy London are on board, though sources say the network is trying to sign up former tennis star Jennifer Capriati.

If it really wants to set a ratings record, there's an obvious candidate in need of MAJOR help: Mel Gibson.

Edward Norton is an Oscar-nominated actor.

But that bullet point on his resume wasn't enough to help the star keep his most recent job, as Norton has been booted fron the upcoming big screen adaption of The Avengers.

The May 2012 movie will bring together Marvel comic book heroes such as Captain America and Iron Man. It will star Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson and more - but will NOT include Norton in the role of Bruce Banner.

The studio explained why in this harsh statement:

"We have made the decision to not bring Ed Norton back to portray the title role of Bruce Banner in the Avengers.

"Our decision is definitely not one based on monetary factors, but instead rooted in the need for an actor who embodies the creativity and collaborative spirit of our other talented cast members. The Avengers demands players who thrive working as part of an ensemble... We are looking to announce a name actor who fulfills these requirements, and is passionate about the iconic role in the coming weeks."

Snaps, yo! Replied a rep for Norton:

"This offensive statement from Kevin Feige at Marvel is a purposefully misleading, inappropriate attempt to paint our client in a negative light... This seemed to us to be a financial decision but, whatever the case, it is completely their prerogative, and we accepted their decision with no hard feelings."

Norton starred in a 2008 remake of The Hulk that was panned by critics and bombed at the box office.

The AMP Energy Bullrun Rally is an annual eight-day race across the country, pitting 100 cars against one another to see who can leave from New York City and get to Las Vegas first.

What does this have to do with Kim Kardashian? Absolutely nothing, except she pocketed thousands of dollars to serve as the official "Flag Girl" for the start of the event on Saturday.

We'd make some comment about this being a sign of the Apocalypse (how can someone with so little talent make so much money for doing absolutely nothing?!?) - but Kardashian may have actually earned her pay day in this case.

Seriously, just look at her...

Jon Stewart makes the most headlines.

Stephen Colbert puts the most people and things On Notice.

But you might be surprised to learn than neither of these Comedy Central hosts bring in the most viewers. As of last week, that distinction officially belongs to Daniel Tosh, host of Tosh.0.

  • Colbert Pic

The show is as simple, and hilarious, as it gets. Tosh stands in front of a green screen and makes fun of clips/videos on the Internet. Such material has earned Tosh.0 an average of 2.4 million viewers, about 400,000 more than tune in for The Daily Show.

Comedy Central has already renewed the series for a third season, while it's also producing a nationwide stand-up tour for Tosh.

So, you tell us: Who would you rather... watch?

This is a first: The View is facing controversy, and it's NOT over something Elisabeth Hasselbeck said.

In fact, that conservative commentator - whose most recent example of opinionated nonsense involved a shot at Erin Andrews - has nothing to do with why GLADD is taking aim at this ABC talk show.

Derek Lowe Mug Shot

Instead, the organization has its sights set on Sherri Shepherd and D.L. Hughley, the June 22 guest host. On that date, the pair talked about the influx of HIV among African-Americans and blamed it on gay black men that were in the closet, aka "on the down low."

"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.

Added Shepherd, offering no data to back up her assertion: "It's so big in the black community with women because they're having sex with men who have been having sex with men."

In response, GLADD has taken out a full-page ad in Variety that reads:

"The Centers for Disease Control has publicly disproven this myth. And since June 22, thousands of people have written to ABC, asking that The View provide correct information to viewers. Unfortunately, those requests have been greeted with silence from both ABC and The View."

Panelists on the show are known for expressing their opinions and have the right to speak their minds, of course. But when making grand claims such as the one above, it would nice if they relied on facts to support their statements.

When the union went on strike, did Tommy give up?

When tips at the diner were sparse, did Gina throw in her apron?

No and no. Therefore, legendary rocker Jon Bon Jovi - inspired by the characters he created for the iconic single "Livin on a Prayer" - continued with his concert in New Jersey over the weekend, despite a serious leg injury sustained during the set.

Said a spokesperson afterward: "Jon Bon Jovi sustained a torn calf muscle. [He] made light of the injury and went on to close the show... The band ended the night together, thanking the capacity hometown crowd, and assisting Jon off the stage."

The development won't stop Bon Jovi from playing every stop of its tour this summer. Watch the injured lead singer in action below:

For THG staff member Free Britney, it's already been quite a year.

He welcomed his first child into the world in February, a baby boy who rivals Mason Dash and Hank Baskett IV for Cutest Newborn of 2010, but that hasn't stopped him from pumping out content at a record rate.

Working on little sleep and in between diaper changes, FB has averaged 10 posts/day over the last week, all without complaint, all for the enjoyment of our loyal readers. He's also still working on his original mission: to free Britney Spears from the conservatorship under which she suffers.

It's a noble cause.

Ohh, Baby, Baby

It's okay, Brit. It's not too late to get your biggest supporter a gift.

As he turns 31 today, there's something every user out there can do for this dedicated writer's birthday: follow THG on Twitter!

Nothing would mean more to him.
