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.

Whoopi Goldberg did not hit Michaele Salahi when that attention-starved waste of space appeared on The View yesterday. Let's get that fact straight.

Earlier reports claimed that this Real Housewives of Washington D.C. cast member had accused the host of making such a violent gesture, but attorney Lisa Bloom tells EW.com her client never made the allegation.

However, Bloom is outraged over the disrespectful way in which she says Salahi was treated during her appearance on the talk show, which included numerous references to her "crashing" the White House and a bizarre cameo by Goldberg, who grabbed Michaele's arm (saying "Excuse me, would you get back to the White House, please?") and then rushed off stage.

You can watch the six-minute segment and then take in what Bloom said about it in a statement below:

"It’s not appropriate for another host to come up from behind her and ask her, the guest, to change the subject. If Whoopi didn’t like the way the interview was going, she should have told Sherri or Joy or one of the producers," Bloom said, adding that Goldberg cursed her client out in the dressing room backstage.

Bloom then defended Salahi's White House incident in general:

"She was never charged with a crime. The U.S. attorney in Washington D.C. released a statement saying they’ve never committed a crime and have never been charged. But I guess the people at The View feel otherwise. Without reviewing any of the evidence, they’ve decided that they are going to smear her. It’s unprofessional."

Bloom and Salahi can cry themselves a river over this treatment, but The Real Housewives of Washington D.C. premieres tonight on Bravo - and they should send Goldberg a bouquet of flowers after the inevitably strong ratings come in.

Danielle Staub has two messages for Teresa Giudice:

  1. Told you so!
  2. Avoid payday loans, no money down mortgages and be smart with your money.

That's the basic reaction this reality star has for her Real Housewives of New Jersey castmate, as Giudice faces serious bankruptcy and financial problems. Speaking to reporters about Teresa'a $11 million debt this week, Staub said:

“I’m going to tell her what I told her before - your house is in foreclosure. I wasn’t lying and you did know... I think people need to spend within their means and if you don’t know what you have, you need to communicate with your husband."

This is easily the most sane Danielle has ever sounded.

Teresa vs. Danielle

Staub and Giudice went at it on the amazing July 13 episode of this Bravo show, as seen above. Since then, Teresa has gone on The View and said her husband, Joe, never said a word about their impending foreclosure.

But that's a lame excuse, Danielle says, adding: "One thing that comes with marriage is that it’s fifty-fifty. It is your responsibility to know these things. You can’t just throw him under the bus... That’s not cool.”

In the end, Staub has profound advice for all the Real Housewives: “Be very humble, be grateful for the opportunities that have been given to you and try to teach your children that hard work is definitely something that becomes lucrative to you in the end.”

In the rear end, she means, as Danielle knows from personal, videotaped experience.

One Brit is out and another is in.

With Simon Cowell out of the American Idol fold, former producer Nigel Lythgoe - who left this post in 2008 - has returned to the show he helped make famous. He released the following statement today:

"Working as executive producer on American Idol for its first seven years not only was an inspirational journey into the heart of American pop culture, it opened my eyes to the untapped potential of the incredibly dynamic young people in this world... I am elated and honored to be rejoining childhood friend and fellow executive producer Ken Warwick, and look forward to creating more magic.”

Will that magic include Lythgoe as a judge? No.

What about Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler? Lythgoe would not confirm those rumors, but is on record as saying he "loves" Paula Abdul and would love to have her back on Idol.

That wacky judge is under contract with CBS for a new dance show, however. No word yet on whether or not her pharmacist is changing networks with her.

For Miley Cyrus, it's the end of an era.

No, we aren't referring to the time in her life when she wore pants and didn't look ridiculous each time she took the stage.

Instead, we're paraphrasing the singer herself in a recent interview with The Montreal Gazette. Cyrus spoke to the newspaper and explained her decision to end Hannah Montana after this season:

"You don't want it to grow up too much, where the younger audience feel they can't watch the show anymore. But also, [don't] go backwards and make it so young that you lose the older fans that you have. It's just kind of come to a point where there's not much more we could do with [the show]."

Miley is focusing on her career as an adult actress, a transformation she understands isn't easy to take for many fans.

"I want to be a role model and have people look up to me, but this also doesn't mean that I am not going to live the way that I want to live," she said. "I'm going to grow up at some point, and I've been always honest about that."

Just so you know, Miles, wearing skimpy clothing on stage and pretending to make out with female dancers is NOT the sign of a grown-up. These are the actions of an immature child desperate for attention.

While viewers may make fun of Danielle Staub and her unstable castmates on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, their antics clearly deliver ratings.

But with a new stable of spoiled, self-centered reality stars debuting on Bravo tonight, Stacie Scott Turner says fans should NOT expect such shenanigans on The Real Housewives of Washington, D.C.

"What was really compelling is that [producers] talked about how this series was going to be a little more sophisticated than the others and that they were looking to have the drama come from things other than table-tossing and the other stuff that you've grown to expect on the other series," Turner told E! News.

No hair-pulling and coke whoring allegations? Why should we tune in?!?

Turner says she and her costars - Mary Schmidt Amons, Lynda Erkiletian, Catherine Ommanney and Michaele Salahi - actually have informed opinions about current events and politics.

"By all means, we're not like Meet the Press or any of the serious shows," Turner said. "We still have fun. It's an entertaining show. Women are aware, informed and have an opinion - and we make ours known."

Fine. We'll probably tune in. But if at least one drink isn't thrown in someone's face before the month is over, we're outta there!

Is Jillian Michaels trying to kill us?

Possibly, according to a new lawsuit filed against the celebrity trainer.

Derek Lowe Mug Shot

A woman referred to as "R.D." in documents has filed a class action lawsuit in Los Angeles County Superior Court that claims Jillian's Triple Process Total Body Detox & Cleanse diet supplement contains a "potentially lethal combination of toxic ingredients. Also, it "might kill you."

Hmmm... can we feed it to Mel Gibson?

Among the ingredients the lawsuit singles out, as first reported by TMZ, are:

  • Irish Moss Powder because it "causes gastrointestinal ulcers" and is "so toxic that it is the gel commonly applied to aircraft wings to dissolve ice."
  • Bearberry, which is "known to cause nausea and vomiting."
  • Yarrow, described as "a toxic lawn weed that causes dermatitis"
  • Chinese Rhubarb, "a harsh laxative and dangerous diuretic that can cause sever dehydration and may cause irreversible liver damage"

R.D. is seeking $10 million for the conspiracy she alleges is behind the attempt to hide these products from the consumer. This is the fourth time Jillian has been sued for potentially toxic supplement ingredients.

Please just take our advice, people: if you wish to lose weight, eat in moderation and exercise. That's really the only healthy way to do it.

Taylor Swift has unleashed her latest single online.

The talented young singer has set October 25 as the release date for her new album and has now given fans a chance to listen to "Mine."

Of the song, Taylor has said it's an ode to her lousy love life, sharing: "[It's about] my tendency to run from love. It’s a recent tendency. Every example of love in my life has ended in goodbye. The song is about finding the exception to that.”

Might actor Toby Hemingway be that exception? Ponder that question as you listen and vote below:

What do you think of the single?
