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.

For years, Megan Hauserman was considered all that was wrong with reality TV. The busty blonde provided nothing of substance to the world.

She just got naked a lot and was rewarded with appearances on Beauty and the Geek, Rock of Love 2, I Love Money and Rock of Love Girls: Charm School.

She was eventually given her own dating show, Megan Wants a Millionaire, and says it was a "dream come true."

But this turned into a nightmare in August 2009, when a recently-booted contestant named Ryan Jenkins was found to have killed his ex-girlfriend (Jasmine Fiore) and himself.

In a gruesome scene, Fiore's mutilated body was found stuffed into a suitcase. The police spent the next eight days trying to locate Jenkins before finding him dead in a hotel room. During this week, Hauserman was panicked beyond belief.

"I was terrified he was going to come looking for me," she tells People in a new interview. "I never left my apartment... I try not to think too much about all this. But it's hard not to. This was such close call. Jasmine and I could have been interchangeable."

Hauserman's show was taken off the air and there are no plans to feature it again on VH1. Megan may need to get an actual job and network executives may need to look at themselves in the mirror.

When you put such complete and utter crap on the air, you can't be shocked when you attract such shady individuals.

Following a two-hour episode of American Idol that dragged on for longer than most installments of The Bachelor, the judges finally selected seven of the season's final 24 contestants.

The rest will be chosen tonight and then all these semifinalists will perform live from Hollywood, starting next week. Can you feel the excitement? The singers that received good news last night were:

Michael Lynche: Ryan loves to refer to him as "Big Mike." We saw snippets of his "I'm Yours" auditions and the nice, laid back guy just became a father for the first time.

Didi Benami: Probably our favorite so far. This 23-year old is full of emotion, as she auditioned for the show in the wake of her best friend's death. Sang "Angel" during one of the Hollywood rounds.

Casey James: Took his shirt of during his original try out, but is better remembered for almost losing the use of his hands in a motorcycle accident. He's 28 years old and a country artist.

The Judging Panel

Aaron Kelly: Just 16 years old, was adopted by his aunt and uncle. He won the "American Idol Experience" at DisneyWorld a few years ago.

Lee Dewyze: Released an album in 2009, not given a lot of time so far on the show. At 23, Simon Cowell questions his confidence.

Todrick Hall: Appeared in The Color Purple on Broadway. The 24-year old has performed on cruise ships and in theme parks.

Katelyn Epperly: Sings lead vocals in a folk rock band. The 19-year old hails from Iowa.

Which of these contestants do you think has the most potential to be named the next American Idol? Our money would be on Benami or Hall.

Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane now has something in common with Levi Johnston: both have been bitch slapped by the Palins.

On Sunday night, Fox aired an episode of this popular sitcom that featured a girl with Down Syndrome, who said at one point: "My mom’s the former governor of Alaska."

For a series known for crude and offensive humor, not much was actually made about the girl's state.

Stewie uttered the occasional rude line, but Stewie always utters the occasional rude line. It almost seemed as though MacFarlane inserted the Palin reference in there just to court controversy - and, of course, the self-absorbed "politician" snatched the bait.

Palin took to Facebook and said the joke was a “kick in the gut” because she it “mocked” her son, Trig, who has Down Syndrome. She then turned it over to her daughter because it's always healthy for an 18-year old to be in the center of a scandal.

Palin vs. Stewie

Bristol wrote:

When you’re the son or daughter of a public figure, you have to develop thick skin. My siblings and I all have that, but insults directed at our youngest brother hurt too much for us to remain silent. People with special needs face challenges that many of us will never confront, and yet they are some of the kindest and most loving people you’ll ever meet.

Their lives are difficult enough as it is, so why would anyone want to make their lives more difficult by mocking them? As a culture, shouldn’t we be more compassionate to innocent people – especially those who are less fortunate? Shouldn’t we be willing to say that some things just are not funny?

Are there any limits to what some people will do or say in regards to my little brother or others in the special needs community? If the writers of a particularly pathetic cartoon show thought they were being clever in mocking my brother and my family yesterday, they failed.

All they proved is that they’re heartless jerks.

THG's reaction to this mess:

  • There's absolutely no way Bristol Palin wrote that;
  • It's wrong to make fun of someone with Down Syndrome;
  • The show is an equal opportunity offender. Family Guy quotes take swipes at every race, religion and disability. Do they sometimes cross the line? Yes. We were appalled that the sitcom made multiples jokes about rape two weeks ago. But it's been on the air for eight seasons and there's clearly a market for its niche.
  • Palin had no problem when Rush Limbaugh used the word "retard" multiple times last month because she deemed his rant against Democrats to be "satire." And Family Guy would be what, Sarah, Pulitzer Prize-worthy drama?
  • If Palin were truly interested in anything but getting her name in the newspaper, she'd ignore this type of baiting. Her desperate need for PR is the only reason Levi Johnston is still around. If she'd ignored his taunts months ago, the world would have forgotten about him by now.
  • No respectable political figure issues statements from her Facebook account.
  • Examples such as this prove why Palin is closer to Tila Tequila than Hilary Clinton.

You've heard from us. Now, we wanna hear from you: Whose side are you on in this feud?

Finally proving to the world that she's more than a willing sex tape participant and arm candy for Reggie Bush, Kim Kardashian walked the catwalk today during New York Fashion Week.

The socialite showed off the clothing line she and her sisters have teamed up with Bebe to create - and those in attendance, such as Jenni "JWoWW" Farley, Adrienne Bailon and members of The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast - were impressed.

"I thought it was absolutely amazing," Bailon, a family friend, told E! News. "I'm so proud of Kim. I think that they've done an amazing job, all the girls, and I love the fact that the clothing actually looks like what the girls would wear."

Kim on the Katwalk

Also excited by what he saw? Fashion photographer and America's Next Top Model star Jay Manuel. He said:

"It's what I expected: something that women want to wear, sexy with an air of sophistication. I saw a little day, a little night. Sometimes I did see a little Khloé versus Kim, but what I saw was the different moods of the Kardashians."

We can't even think of anything snarky to say. Sure, we'd rather see Kim in nothing, but this hoodie/dress is actually sort of cool. Would you wear it?

Yet another reason to heart Adam Lambert...

The singer stood up against cell phone abuse last night, actually stopping mid-song during a concert in New York City and telling an audience member (politely) to stop screaming into her phone.

Play the clip below and listen closely. You can hear a fan echo our feelings about Adam, near the end of his well-deserved interruption: Oh my God, I love him...

This is an example of why it's way too early to compare Andrew Garcia to Adam, as Kara DioGuardi had the gall to do last week.

Lambert brings more than just a great voice to every show. He brings charisma, charm and an upfront attitude that is almost unheard of in Hollywood.

No one on the planet would want to laugh like Kendra Wilkinson, but we can't blame many women for wanting a body like this former Playboy cover girl.

With that in mind, the busty blonde has offered up the following, top-secret weight loss tips to OK! Weekly. How could Kendra have supposedly lost 25 pounds in eight weeks, without "going overboard and cutting everything out?"

Muscle Wasting

By taking these pieces of advice...

Eat Breakfast: It's the most important meal of the day! “I have strawberry or peach yogurt; cereal and fruit; or a smoothie, so I’m not hungry and I feel energized," she said.

Don't Weigh Yourself: “Chart your progress with how your clothes fit, not what the number on the scale says.”

Have a Goal: Kendra wants to possess the most famous backside in Hollywood (sorry, Kim Kardashian) and to wear a slinky Hervé Léger dress for husband Hank Baskett.

Snack Well: “I really like cold, raw vegetables, especially baby carrots,"  Wilkinson says, advising others to dip these in hummus or fat-free dressing for a healthy snack.

Ration Yourself: Kendra still eats pasta and rice because “it’s just all about portion sizes.” Try not to have more than one cup of a carb/meal.

Got it? Follow these rules, get a boob job, make enough money by pimping out your child on the cover of tabloids so that you don't need to hold down a real job... and you'll shed those pounds in no time!

It's a golden age for one Golden Girl.

Over the past year, Betty White has co-starred in a hit movie (The Proposal); appeared in a Super Bowl commercial; and received a lifetime achievement from the Screen Actors Guild. The 88-year old is suddenly in a more sought after commodity than Megan Fox nude photos.

Nowhere is this more evident than on Facebook: Over 330,000 users have signed an online petition that aims to get White as a host of Saturday Night Live. What does the actress think of this movement?

"I don't even know where that came from," she told People. "That just came out of left field. It's ridiculous. I don't think Lorne Michaels even knows about it, so we won't worry about it."

The prospect of White as on the SNL stage raises two questions, the first being: Do you want this to happen?

 

The second question: Who is your dream SNL host? We vote for Levi Johnston, Chris Harrison, Tiger Woods or Snooki.

Let your voice be heard in the Comments section below!

Jake Pavelka scored with THREE different women last night, each one in love with the pilot and each willing to truly open up to him in the Chris Harrison-sponsored fantasy suite... if you know what we mean!

But The Bachelor wasn't the only show that aired a new episode, it was just the most poorly-scripted one. Below, our pals at TV Fanatic have reviewed a variety of other dramas. Click on each link to get caught up...

  • Lux totally threw it down on Life Unexpected.
  • A politician made his presence felt on Greek.
  • There was a suicide and a possible murder admission on Damages.
  • You'll never believe this, but the nuclear rods are still on the loose on 24!

Mary-Louise Parker and Julie Bowen don't simply star on two popular TV shows.

They also star in the hearts, minds and fantasies of men everywhere.

  • Mary-Louise Parker Naked
  • Julie Bowen Emmy Writers Photo

The former anchors Showtime's Weeds, a long-running series that has lost a bit of momentum in recent seasons, but that's through no fault of Parker's. The 45-year old actress is akin to a fine wine: she gets better with age.

Bowen, meanwhile, turns 40 next month. She's a key part of a Modern Family cast that cracks us up every Wednesday night on ABC.

Both these women are others and sex symbols, a rare combination in Hollywood. Compare them below and then cast your all-important vote...

Who would you rather...

You've got no one to blame for your unhappiness (no, baby!). You got yourself into your own mess... Let your worries pass you by.

When Chynna Phillips sang these words in the 1990 classic "Hold On," who knew they would sort of apply to own situation two decades later?

As this former member of the all-female group Wilson Phillips checks herself into rehab this week, there's just one difference between these lyrics and her personal crisis: Chynna can pretty much blame half-sister of Mackenzie Phillips for all her issues.

Last September, Mackenzie told the world about her incestuous sexual relationship with her father. The ramifications of that announcement have led Chynna's manager to release the following statement:

"After much thoughtful deliberation Chynna Phillips has checked herself into an undisclosed treatment facility for anxiety. With the full support of her family and friends, she is looking forward to her recovery. We ask that people respect her and her family's privacy at this time."

Chynna released a new album in the fall of 2009. She's married to Baldwin brother Billy, who will soon appear on Gossip Girl in the role of Serena's father.

A friend says Chynna is not receiving help for drugs or alcohol, but for "a combination of things. She hasn’t been the same since the summer.”

We hope she gets better and we'd like to honor the singer by asking readers to check out her classic video below. It ought to serve as inspiration for Chynna as she struggles to overcome these demons.
