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.

The craze over Steven Slater might be getting out of hand.

New reports indicate that the disgruntled JetBlue flight attendant may have been the one who instigated a confrontation on last week's flight, while many THG readers have expressed dismay over Slater possibly landing a reality show out of the ordeal.

At this point, who is more famous: Barry Manilow or Steven Slater?

Now, PR specialist Howard Bragman has taken Slater on as a client. Said the publicist who has represented Isaiah Washington, Chaz Bono and Oksana Grigorieva:

"I think that he's hit something in the zeitgeist, and I think that I understand what he's hit. So I'm doing the media relations and also acting as manager.

"I'm seeing a lot of interest. I think he's an interesting character, and I don't think America knows him. I think they're going to like this guy. He's very charming and very intelligent. I think there is real potential in him."

Slater did break the law, of course, and is facing seven years in jail.

We also understand his frustration, but isn't part of a flight attendant's job to deal with rude passengers? Therefore, we must ask again: What should happen to Steven Slater?

Featured in the latest issue of Allure, Kim Kardashian opens up about the two reasons she's famous:

  1. Her sex tape with Ray J.
  2. Her naked Playboy pictorial.

Referring to item number-one, Kim tells the magazine it was "not my most proud moment," adding:

"It was humiliating. But now let's move on. Not that I don't think it's [no one's] business, but I think I've done a good job of replacing negative things with positive things."

She must mean positive things for the E! network, as no one can argue with the ratings for Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Other than that? Well, horny men around the world have also benefited from her existence.

In early 2008, Kardashian also bared almost all for Playboy, a decision she says is "nothing I regret."

"Being on the cover of Playboy is very iconic. I was like, 'OK, I'm proud to do this and to show people that I don't have to be stick-skinny to be looked at as a sex symbol, and to me that's not what's attractive anyway.'"

A few seconds later in the interview, KIM COMPLETELY CONTRADICTS HERSELF, saying:

"After the fact, I said, 'I wish I hadn't done Playboy then' because I wasn't in the best shape of my life... I lost about 15 pounds, and I feel so proud. I look back and say, 'Oh, my God, I was so heavy then.'"

So, which is it, you sell-out of a hypocrite? Can women be curvy sex symbols, or are you ashamed because you were overweight when posing for Playboy?!?

In one final tease, Kim shares another beauty routine she undergoes: "I am Armenian, so of course I am obsessed with laser hair removal! Arms, bikini, legs, underarms... my entire body is hairless."

That's something Nick Lachey, Nick Cannon, Ray J, Reggie Bush, Cristiano Ronaldo and Miles Austin all know well.

Just a few days removed from a hospitalization for a rumored suicide attempt, Fantasia Barrino is getting back to work.

The singer's new album, "Back to Me," comes out on Facebook and Amazon today, which means scheduled promotional appearances the artist will fulfill. In a statement, Fantasia says:

Vegas Performance Pic

"I can't thank my fans enough for their prayers and support during such a challenging time. It has given me the motivation to get back to work and honor the commitments I made to promote Back To Me. I put a lot of blood, sweat and tears into this album and I pray that everyone enjoys it as much as I do."

The challenging time to which Fantasia alludes is based around an alleged affair with Antwaun Cook, as well as a possible lawsuit from his spurned wife and the rumor of a sex tape between the couple.

Over the weekend, Barrino and Cook were filmed together by a VH1 camera crew. This has caused many to speculate that the recent drama in the singer's life has simply been concocted for Fantasia for Real, the reality show still set to premiere on September 19.

We'll leave that for readers to debate and simply say for now that Barrino's promotional appearances kick off on August 24 on Good Morning America. She'll then perform later in the month on Lopez Tonight, Live with Regis & Kelly and The Wendy Williams Show.

Tila Tequila probably does not deserve to be hit in the face with beer bottles and/or watermelons soaked in urine.

But that's exactly what happened at a concert in Illinois over the weekend, as the mentally unbalanced D-lister refused to heed organizers' warnings about a rowdy crowd, took the stage to rap, refused to walk away when booed - and then got attacked by a bunch of utter morons.

"I contacted my agents and told them my concerns, and my agents contacted the people who run the event, and they swore to us that there'd be a 100 or more security guards and that nothing like that would happen, and that they needed me to go," Tila told E! News last night about the build-up to the incident.

Tequila says the event was "unorganized" and "the atmosphere was really violent."

Once she got on stage to sing her disaster of a single, "I Fucked the DJ," Tila said:

"Everyone started booing, and I was like, 'Alright, this is a violent and tough crowd,' so I went out there just to try and have fun...But immediately before I got up there, things were being thrown, there was so much stuff being thrown, besides just beer bottles."

At one point, she "looked down and saw human poop." That's never fun.

Tequila will clearly milk this scandal for every second and every penny she can. Along those lines, a lawsuit is already in the works.

Has Danielle Staub really been fired from The Real Housewives of New Jersey?

As viewers consider this strong possibility, they were treated to a new episode of the hilarious/nauseating Bravo series last night. Our THG correspondent has every detail covered. Follow along now...

It struck me tonight:  Watching this show serves the same purpose as visiting a Roman vomitorium.  I feel queasy just changing the channel to Bravo now.  The nausea intensifies as I hear that fakey Godfather-like music start up.  My thoughts begin to race:  Can I handle it one more time or will this be the night that I bash myself over the head with the flat screen? 

Obviously I survived because here I am to share my random musings with you.  Here is the thought that compels me:  One more episode left! Yes, my dearies, we’ve come this far - we can make it to the bitter and horrifying finale.  Let’s all hold hands, say a little prayer, and take a deep breath as we dive in.  It’ll be over soon.

The Housewives Girl

The Housewives, Househusbands, Houseinlaws, Houseelders, and Housebrats dock in Naples. Everyone seems to be excited to get off the ship, especially Teresa’s whiny daughters.  Shirtless Joe bitches as he throws and kicks their 10 million bags down hallways and out of elevators.  He’s grouchier than ever. 

He’s cursing and stomping around having a tantrum.  Teresa tells us that he is pissy because he’s away from his businesses.  I believe that, if by “businesses” she means “half-empty bottles of booze in the basement at home.”

Once aboard the first of several ginormous buses, the nasty touristy kind, Teresa’s girls predictably break down.  Caroline shoots Teresa the snake eye but it is unfortunately ineffective.  “I don’t feel responsible at all if people are in a crappy mood.  That’s on them,” says Teresa.  Later, while exploring their hotel room, the Giudice bambinas discover a bidet, which Teresa refers to as a “beh-deh.” Joe, reminding us that he is a savvy world traveler with infinite knowledge about European culture, adds helpfully, “They’re like douches.”

I never thought I’d be so happy to see the Prostitution Whore and the decrepit lair she haunts but these annoying scenes of Italian tomfoolery are making me crazy.  Danielle reminds her defenseless daughters about her fight with Kim G. and then has a few moments of verbal diarrhea about finding her birth mom. 

At one point Christine uses the word “ass” and Danielle gets all bent out of shape.  “You’re too beautiful and too spiritual to speak like that,” says the woman who runs around town screaming profanities at other women across parking lots.

Filmed in Italy

Discount Danny comes to visit the Prostitution Whore.  They go to have some panini.  Poor Shirtless just wants to enjoy his hot n’ crusty, cheesy n’ olive oily panini but Prostitution insists on yammering away about the other Housewives.  Discount listens as Danielle explains that Ashley “has terroristic tendencies.” 

Danielle is positive she will be attacked by Ashley in the parking lot when she is just trying to get her precious panini.  Discount does a good job pretending to be interested.

Danielle has a private investigator come over so he can begin sleuthing around the backyard turning over rocks and studying the moss carefully with his magnifying glass while he smokes a pipe and twirls his moustache.  Sherlock Holmes doesn’t give her very much hope of finding her teenage birth mom and Danielle lets us know that she wants no drug addicted or homeless biological mommies. She just wants a rich one that will let her inherit a ton of unearned money.

Later Sherlock calls the Prostitution Whore to let her know that finding the records of the birth mom might take up to ten years.  None of us cares one tiny bit, even when Danielle fake cries and tries to act all sensitive and damaged and tells us she’s leaving it in God’s hands.  We don’t care whose hands she’s leaving what in, as long as we don’t have to hear about it anymore.

Back in Italy everyone boards yet another big ass bus to go somewhere, I think to terrorize a small country village.  Shirtless is cursing up a storm while his daughters beat each other senseless.  “Joe on the bus, he was tired, he was cranky, and he was just lashing out at everybody,” Caroline explains.

Everyone is rolling their eyes and making their fingers look like guns ready to blow their brains out as Shirtless slurs and hollers from his seat.  I keep waiting for Albert to yell, “Shuddup already!”  Now a conflict between the dudes would have actually been an entertaining moment in this backed-up sewer of a show.

Is it possible for a beauty pageant to be too sexy?

That's the question directed at Miss Universe these days, as the organization has posed most of its 2010 contestants in almost nothing but body paint for a new set of promotional images.

Derek Lowe Mug Shot

Miss USA, Rima Fakih, and Miss Trinidad and Tobago, LaToya Woods, show off these looks in the examples below:

Some think these photos go too far.

"It's alarming that this has been turned into a Playboy-esque masquerade," Angie Meyer, a former pageant employee, told Fox News. "By implementing topless photos as part of the pageant process, they're putting applicants in an extremely compromising position."

As opposed to the bathing suit and evening gown segments of the event, which place contestants in uncompromising positions and are not based on appearances?

Responded Lark-Marie Anton, vice president of marketing and public relations for the organization, to the charges of inappropriateness:

"The contestants who compete at Miss Universe are diverse, as they represent more than 82 countries around the globe. Many of their cultures embrace nudity... We feel the images captured are fashionable and cutting edge!"

The Miss Universe pageant airs on August 23. Do you think these pictures cross a line?

According to a new tabloid report, Bravo has finally grown weary of Danielle Staub.

Despite the record ratings The Real Housewives of New Jersey has delivered this season, a source tells Life & Style that the show's most controversial star won't return in 2011.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey

"Danielle was told that she would not be returning for a third season," an insider said, describing the firing as "a complete shock" to Staub.

The nut job responded to this rumor by essentially confirming it. In a statement, she said: "I'm not even thinking about season 3 right now as I am considering many incredible options that have been presented to me... next year, I'll still be the one you either love to hate or hate to love."

Oh God, is she referring to a spin-off?!?

Although Staub delivers the sort of scandals and fights that reality TV executives crave, new, extremely sordid details about her drug-dealing past came to light last week.

Combined with a sex tape, there's only so much a network can ignore.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey concludes this season on August 23 - and then airs two more reunion specials on August 30 and September 6. If Staub really is being let go, Bravo will milk every last possible second of publicity it can out of her craziness.

Would you be sad to see Danielle fired?

Remember the name Rooney Mara. You'll be hearing it often over the next couple years.

This relatively unknown actress has beaten out a number of major stars - such as Kristen Stewart and Scarlett Johansson - and landed the female lead in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. She'll star as Lisbeth Salander in the big screen adaptation of Stieg Larsson's best-selling novel.

Rooney Mara Picture

Mara appeared in A Nightmare on Elm Street and also has a role in this fall's The Social Network opposite Justin Timberlake.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo starts shooting next month in Sweden. Daniel Craig has already signed on as Mikael Blomkvist, while Robin Wright is rumored to play his character's love interest in the film. It will come out on December 21, 2011.

What do you think of Rooney Mara in this beloved role?

Following a firestorm created by her bikini-based pictorial last month, Kendall Jenner released a well-reasoned, mature statement that quieted most critics.

Father Bruce Jenner then came out and defended his 14-year old daughter.

Not much has been mentioned about the photos since, but you wouldn't expect the Kardashians to not milk a publicity opportunity for every second and ounce of sympathy they can, would you?

With that in mind, Khloe Kardashian and Kris Jenner have now spoken out about the pics.

"She looks better than most 20-year-olds in their bikinis," Khloe told Us Weekly, making an irrelevant point and then adding:

"In the modeling world, being 14 is actually middle age. Kimora Lee Simmons was walking for Chanel in Paris at age 12; no one commented when she did that. So if you want to speak in modeling perspective, you have to live in a modeling world. Not that many people are putting it in that perspective. They're just thinking, 'Oh, Kendall Jenner. Let’s talk some crap.'"

Now, for Kris Jenner's take:

"One of her lifelong passions is to be a model, and it’s something she’s really excited about. [The bikini photos] are tasteful, she’s covered up completely and they’re not provocative. They’re just gorgeous shots."

Look, Kardashians, no one is accusing Kendall of being ugly. Her looks aren't exactly the point.

No one is accusing Montana Fishburne of being ugly, either, and she claims porn has been her lifelong passion. Sometimes, though, parents must step in when their children aren't old enough to make adult decisions. That's all anyone is saying here.
