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 speculation is true. The clothes will soon be coming off.

A rep for Playboy confirms that Real Housewives of New York star Kelly Bensimon will pose in the magazine's March issue. She "will be featured on the cover and in a 6-page nude pictorial," the insider said.

Bensimon's upcoming spread is seen at a direct challenge to Bethenny Frankel, who posed nude for a PETA billboard in Times Square in mid-December.

As the stakes between these co-stars grow higher, we can only imagine castmate Jeana Keogh eventually one-upping them all and doing porn.

Do you wanna see Kelly Bensimon naked?

It was written off as a Twilight Saga clone at first, but The Vampire Diaries has made a solid impression on viewers.

This is a truly intriguing drama on The CW, anchored by a gorgeous cast. It's led by Ian Somerhalder, Nina Dobrev and Paul Wesley.

The threesome posed for a series of photos with Nylon magazine this week, with each answering a question about the surprising hit:

Dobrev, on similarities with other vampire franchises: "When the show first started... you automatically thought Twilight.  But once you continue, there's a whole other side of it that goes a lot deeper... It's about letting everyone know that we're different but we all respect each other."

Wesley, on gratitude for Twilight: "Do I thing the show would be successful as it is, if it weren’t for all that? No.”

Somerhalder, on initial reaction to Damon Salvatore: “[My character] is gonna be the coolest character on television. There was no doubt about it. It reminded me of Sawyer, Josh Holloway’s character on Lost. He was always the character I secretly wished I could play.”

The Hollywood Gossip staff spent hours last night analyzing The Bachelor and assigning points to various quotes and developments. In other words: it was a typical Monday night.

But it meant we missed out on a number of great television shows. Fortunately, our pals at TV Fanatic have us covered. Click on the following links to read all about various episodes of various programs:

  • Heroes concluded its tumor storyline in a ridiculous manner.
  • Renee Walker returned, in a different state than when we previously saw her, on 24.
  • Brandon Routh and Angie Harmon both showed up on Chuck.
  • We loved the series premiere of Life Unexpected. You should DVR it.

Might the name Lambert get lucky two years in a row on American Idol?

As fans know, Adam Lambert made it all the way to the final two on season eight of the country's most-watched program.

Now, an upstart named Alex Lambert is hoping to follow in that singer's talented footsteps.

According to various sources, Alex has earned a spot in the show's top 24. Not much is known about this Texas native, except that he loves to wear goofy glasses and strum the guitar.

To wit, check out the singer's rendition of the Jason Mraz classic "I'm Yours."

It's clear who the loser is in the recent NBC late-night shake-up: Conan O'Brien.

But it's also apparent who the winner has become in this mess of a situation: David Letterman.

The Late Show host has gotten in numerous attacks on Jay Leno and NBC over the past couple weeks, prompting NBC executive Dick Ebersol to call him and O'Brien "chicken-hearted and gutless" for their take on the mess.

Naturally (and hilariously), Letterman responded to this critique last night. After subtly tweaking Leno's reputation as America's friendly everyman, he said: “I’m telling jokes and making fun of Jay Leno relentlessly, mercilessly, simply for one reason: I’m really enjoying it.”

It's classic Letterman:

As if we needed another reason to love Robert Pattinson.

The Twilight Saga star will join a number of other celebrities this Friday as part of Hope for Haiti, the George Clooney-hosted telethon that will air across all major networks and focus on earthquake relief in that troubled nation.

Reports indicate that Robert will be the sole presenter in London, likely introducing performances by Jay-Z and Bono.

Popular Pattinson

Artists performing during the live, two-hour event will include Taylor Swift, Alicia Keys, Christina Aguilera, Shakira and Bruce Springsteen.

Meanwhile, other A-listers scheuled to present and/or work the phone lines will be: Jennifer Aniston, Jake Gyllenhaal, Brad Pitt, Anna Kendrick, Sandra Bullock, Zac Efron, Bradley Cooper, Renée Zellweger, Courteney Cox, David Arquette, Colin Farrell and Jon Hamm.

Stars such as Sanda Bullock, Gisele Bundchen and Brangelina have already donated at least $1 million each to the cause.

Note to THG readers: stay in Friday night. Save money on drinks at the bar and donate to the victims of this earthquake.

Does American Idol have the next David Archuleta on its hands?

Granted, it's very early to make that comparison, but there are clear similarities between Aaron Kelly and the season seven finalist.

Kelly is one of several contestants rumored to have advanced to the top 24 this year. He's only 16, yet has a lot of confidence and has gone through some trials already in life: Aaron's aunt and uncle adopted him when he was a toddler because his parents were simply too por.

On Aaron's MySpace page, he's referred to himself as a “Legend in the Works."

Archuleta came across as more humble, of course, but both these artists got started at an early age.

Kelly landed an independent recording contract when he was 10 and won the “American Idol Experience” at DisneyWorld last year. This qualified him to audition for the judges this season and earn unanimous approval for Hollywood.

Critics are already comparing Aaron Kelly to Archuleta, Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber. All the hype is a bit premature.

But the following clip of Kelly singing "Jesus Take the Wheel" proves that he's a contestant worth remembering.

Sorry, Glee fans, but Adam Lambert is not coming on board this Fox series.

But a couple of other major names are likely to guest star on the 2010 Golden Globe winner for Best Comedy.

Executive producer Brad Falchuk has confirmed that Jennifer Lopez is in negotiations to appear this season as a cafeteria worker. Echoed creator Ryan Murphy:

"Lopez wants to do the show, so I’m going to meet with her. In the past couple of months, a lot of people are coming out saying they love the show... But I don’t want to stunt-cast too much, because I think the [musical] numbers are already so extravagant.”

  • J. Lo Picture
  • NPH

Still, there's no way Glee could turn down this opportunity:

Neil Patrick Harris is rumored to to star in a May sweeps episode directed by good friend Joss Whedon. The How I Met Your Mother star might be the most universally beloved figure on television these days.

His presence on Glee will only ratchet up the popularity of a show that's already been renewed for a second season and whose creativity and uniqueness is unrivaled on the small screen.

As for J. Lo? As long as she continues to keep it real as Jenny from the Bronx block, we'll be happy.

Note to Tila Tequila:

This is how you mourn a loved one... sort of.

While that troubled reality star continues to Tweet, pimp out her record level and exploit the death of Casey Johnson in every conceivable way, Courtenay Semel has released an emotional video tribute to her ex-girlfriend.

Granted, the video aired on E! News and there's a good chance Semel was paid to make it. She also butchers the English language by saying Johnson was "literally" her other half, and makes a vow to never date anyone again that is unlikely to be kept.

But at least this is the only time Courtenay has spoken out about Casey. Do the words seem strong for someone whose hair Semel once set on fire? Yes. But, hey, who are we to judge?!?

Watch the tribute below.

Nick Jonas has a new band.

Does he also have an old girlfriend?

In the video below, Selena Gomez is spotted getting off a tour bus with Nick in Chicago. Sources also say she was in attendance at his concert in Detroit over the weekend.

Rumors of a Jonas/Gomez relationship began to surface in the summer of 2008. Nick never really shot them down, though there was never an official break-up. Think this video means there's been an official reconciliation?

During he and his band's tour, Nick has covered songs by Michael Jackson and Taylor Swift?

Why nothing by Gomez? Perhaps he was trying to throw fans off the scent of this rekindled romance. Sound off with your thoughts on this possible pairing right now.
