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.

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.

  • A Daniel Tosh Picture
  • Jon Stewart Photo
  • 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.

We actually have something positive to say about this week's episode of Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami: it was baby talk free!

As for what else went down on the most scripted show on television? We forced an intern to watch and to file the following report...

Kourtney Kardashian Kover

On this week’s installment, Kourtney is obsessive about getting her body back into pre-baby shape. Also, Khloe is back in Miami from LA.

Kourtney goes overboard in her mission. She has a shoot for Life & Style, who we all know has an exclusive deal with the Kardashians.  She tells her stylist that she doesn’t want to be photoshopped because then it’s not realistic for other pregnant women to see. 

Besides the fact that everything is photoshopped these days, it’s also unrealistic to for the average mom to be very rich with access to nannies, free clothes, trainers, etc.

We all know what happens next. 

After all, when you are depriving yourself of food and overindulging in exercise you will lose your cool and possibly consciousness.  Kourtney snaps at Scott and Khloe and then ends up fainting. She needs to be taken away in an ambulance to get hydrated. 

By the way, how Patrick Bateman did Scott look in his outfit during that fight scene?  Moreover, when Kourtney had the IV pulled out, she claims she “can’t look at that stuff.”  I didn’t know Kourtney had any sort of gross out factor; after all she did pull her own baby out of her vagina on cable TV.

Meanwhile Khloe vowed that upon her return to Miami she would no longer be “whining Whitney” and would throw herself into being more helpful to Kourtney and Dash.  She takes over the shop, babysits Mason, and is Kourtney’s biggest cheerleader.

Miley Cyrus may be a colossal disappointment for a variety of reasons, but at least she doesn't curse, smoke or look like a raccoon at all times.

The same can't be said for Gossip Girl cast member Taylor Momsen.

Speaking to FHM UK this week, the 16-year old lashed out at critics that compare her to Miley, making it very clear that she doesn't see any similarities between the pair.

"I'm not looking to be Miley f*cking Cyrus," Momsen said. "I don't care about the fame. I do it because I love music. I like making records and if people like them, then we'll go along for the ride."

  • Taylor M.
  • Miles in Concert

Momsen and Cyrus may both act and sing, but that's pretty much where the comparisons end. The former fronts rock band The Pretty Reckless, while the latter is nothing more than a Britney Spears wannabe at this point.

Still, Taylor feels a need to distance herself from Miley, adding: "I think the Disney bubblegum shit that the world is living right now is pathetic. I thought we passed that repression."

It's unclear what that actually means, but Gossip Girl fans have made their opinion of Momsen and her character well-known: Jenny Humphrey has been written out of most of next season on the show.

Good riddance.

Ready to enter an alternate universe?

Given the extreme makeover Miley Cyrus has undergone over the past couple months, it's jarring to remember that she still plays Hannah Montana on television.

In fact, that show will air the first episode of its final season tomorrow night. It finds the Stewarts moving into a new ranch home and we've posted a sneak peek at the premiere below.

Miley is front and center, but there are no same-sex kisses, no gyrating of the crotch and no torn-up, low-cut, ridiculous outfits to be seen...

Cyrus has gone out of her way to say she wants to shed this innocent image, but she really might wanna think twice about that.

After all, her new album sales have been abysmal. She may have to accept the fact that most fans want to see her as looks here, not as some Britney Spears wannabe:

A recent tabloid cover story stated that Kourtney Kardashian is pregnant again and shady baby daddy Scott Disick reacted to the news by hitting on a woman in front of her.

Not exctly his most dastardly deed.

Still, Kourtney felt the need to make more headlines for herself from this report and responded to it on her blog yesterday. She wrote:

"Gotta give it to the trash mags this week for some pretty creative Kardashian stories. One of my favorites is that Scott was flirting with a sexy blonde aka Joyce, my most gorgeous and fabulous friend and makeup artist. Lol."

Likely Not Pregnant

Kourtney also felt the need to defend another random aspect of the article:

"The story went on about how Scott was downing sangria, a drink I'm pretty sure he has never had before. In fact there wasn't even any sangria at the table. Not to mention, he wasn't drinking alcohol period."

Okay, Kourtney, we got it: Scott wasn't flirting and he wasn't drinking. Thank goodness you cleared those rumors up.

Care to respond to the pregnancy claim now???
