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.

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.

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.

"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.

In a new interview, Lea Michele proves she has a very sexy side and, also, very good taste in men.

The actress rarely has a chance show off much of the former on Glee, as she portrays the straight-laced Rachel Berry. But she gets to be seductive and alluring in a shoot for celebrity hairdresser Mark Townsend’s official website.

Michele is also asked who she'd like to see guest star on her hit Fox show and replied with an answer we share: “Justin Timberlake would be the perfect Glee guest star: He sings, he dances, and he’s hilarious.”

Recent Glee spoilers hint that this may actually take place on the Super Bowl episode of the musical comedy. Commence fist-pumping, fans!

In the Least Shocking News of the Year department, Steven Slater has reportedly been offered a reality show.

Multiple sources inside the industry confirm that Stone Entertainment  - the production company behind such gems as The Mole and The Man Show -  has approached the world's most famous flight attendant to host a program that focuses on workers quitting their jobs in extreme ways.

In a world in which Mario Lopez gets a reality show simply because he knocked up his girlfriend, does this come as a surprise to anyone?

What would you title a Steven Slater reality show?

Of course, the deal is contingent on most of Slater's story actually being true. Over the last few days, various passengers aboard his JetBlue flight say Slater instigated the ugly incident between himself and a woman that led to his abrupt, slide-based resignation.

Donald Trump has since called Slater "a wacko," while video of the hilarious escape has surfaced. Watch it NOW!

Regardless of the validity of his tale, we hope a Slater reality series comes to fruition. Just imagine the possible titles:

  • Protect Runway
  • Once in a Blue Moon
  • The Biggest Losers
  • Beer Slide for the Queer Guy
  • So You Think You Can Get Up From Your Seat Before the Plane Comes to a Complete Stop
  • American Idles... on the Tarmac While the FAA Inspects JetBlue Plane

Justin Bieber is a wanted young man - and we aren't just referring to the singer's popularity among teenage girls!

The artist joined hip hop star Drake on stage this weekend in Indianapolis, rapping along to "Bet I Ever Had."

Said Drake to the sold-out crowd: "This kid is part of something special. You know we're both from Canada... so you know I can't forget ol' J. Beezy. That's my dawg."

As you might expect, those in attendance went crazy when this dawg was let out of his adorable cage. Check it out:

Elsewhere, the possible future Glee guest star is being recruited by an even bigger name in the industry: Kanye West.

In a series of recent Tweets, the rapper - who has come out with a new, controversial video for "Power" - wrote of his affection for a Bieber single and proposed a collaboration between the pair:

Yo this Runaway Love is the truth!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! on my 17th listen 2day!!! Every time I get to that song I got go in 4 times!! And I'm honored that you like my Music @JustinBieber!!! Maybe we can do something together.

What would you think of a Bieber/Kanye duet? Too good to be true? Or two artists too different to pull it off?

Key details involving a washed-up rapper, bare breasts and a piece of fruit covered in human excrement are emerging regarding the Saturday night concert at which Tila Tequila was brutally attacked.

For once, the mentally unbalanced D-lister has not invented a sordid story, as multiple reports confirm that Tila did, indeed, suffer bloody wounds as a result of a rowdy crowd at the Gathering of Juggalos in Illinois.

A former professional wrestler named Colt Cabana was in attendance, for example, and says attendees began to boo lustily as soon as Tequila took the stage and started rapping her single, "I Fucked the DJ." In response, the former realty star took off her shirt - but this only elicited more insults and projectiles, such as beer bottles...

... and a watermelon that had been soaked for two days in urine and feces, a security guard allegedly claims, which a concert goer had been saving for Tila.

Despite this incident (or maybe because of it), Cabana said he enjoyed the event, specifically the performance of Vanilla Ice on "Ninja Rap" from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze soundtrack. Really, he said that.

Meanwhile, Tequila's rep says a "lawsuit is pending" regarding the beating (which you can watch HERE); while her manager adds:

"Tila has gotten medical care for the horrific attack that happened to her this weekend at the Juggalos event in Chicago and is in good hands right now and under medical direction. She would like to thank all of her fans for all the love and support that they have given."

The entire thing is shocking. Seriously, who knew Tila had fans?!?

They aren't the Emmy or the Grammys or the Oscars, but the Breakthrough of the Year Awards took place in Hollywood last night.

This random event provides us with the opportunity to make a plea to everyone on the 90210 set: Can someone please feed AnnaLynne McCord?!? She clearly has not enjoyed a full meal since 2001.

This fact gives gorgeous model Kelly Brook a clear advantage in the face-off below. That beauty is featured in the latest issue of Playboy and also graced the red carpet at last night's ceremony. Compare, contrast and vote now:

  • In Desperate Need of Food
  • Brook, Kelly

Who looked prettier on the red carpet?
