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.

Note to fans of the Twilight Saga: Robert Pattinson doesn't actually live in Forks, Washington. Neither does Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner or any member of the cast.

Still, the geniuses behind reality TV have decided to set a new show in the town simply because events from the Twilight saga unfold there.

Said producer Zig Gauthier about casting for the untitled project:

“We’re not going up there looking to cast people who have claims to the supernatural. We want people who have a true connection to the community. We want to avoid people with outlandish claims.”

Okay. So then what's the goal of this seemingly inane idea?

"To peel back another layer of the onion that is Forks and see what the real people there are like," Gauthier said.

Forks, Washington

Therefore, to sum up: Plans are underway for a reality show about random people that live in a town only known nationally because a fictional book series is based there.

Will you watch this nonsense?

A few days before December 25, the cutest band on the planet has released its Christmas card.

Indeed, The Jonas Brothers would like to wish you and your family the happiest of holidays.

Nick Jonas Announcement

They are doing so with a card that includes Santa Claus (in a Hawaiian shirt) and nine-year Frankie (aka "Bonus Jonas"). Notably absent?

Kevin's new wife, Danielle Deleasa. She was probably too busy finding a trash can for Kevin's purity ring - if you know what we mean! - to pose for the photo anyway...

30.

That's not the number of men Holly Madison slept with last night. Nor is it the number of time she flashed her breasts.

Instead, that's the age this Playboy model turns today, as Madison was an early Christmas present for her parents in 1979.

The past 12 months haven't been especially kind to Holly. She and her busty friends ranked as THG's eighth biggest celebrities of 2008, but failed to recapture their former glory after moving out of the Hugh Hefner's mansion this year.

Since then, Madison got voted off Dancing with the Stars very early on season eight; broke up with Criss Angel; heck, dated Criss Angel; and watched as Kendra Wilkinson stole the spotlight with the birth of her son.

In other words: Holly needs all the birthday wishes you can muster! As you enjoy her photo montage below, send them in today!

The reveal of the official Eclipse poster? Exciting.

The announcement by Adam Lambert that he'd be interested in recording a track for the Eclipse soundtrack? Very cool.

Sexy Rob Pattinson

But the release of the first image from the third film in the Twilight Saga? Swoon, shriek and hyperventillation worthy!

Summit Entertainment, the movie studio responsible for the franchise, has leaked the following photo from Eclipse. On one hand, it's simply a shot of Edward and Bella in a field of flowers.

On the other hand, IT'S A SHOT OF EDWARD AND BELLA IN A FIELD OF FLOWERS! Get excited, fans, and then get to ogling...

Among other newsworthy items related to the movie over the past couple months:

  • Kirsten Prout, Catalina Sandino Moreno, Jack Huston, Jodelle Ferland, and Xavier Samuel have all been cast in key roles.
  • Bryce Dallas Howard will controversially replace Rachel Lefevre as Victoria.

Fans are still buzzing over the second tidbit. Now, they can at least shift their focus back to Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart's characters.

On a scale of 1 to this nut job, how excited are you for Eclipse?

Adorable alert: Selena Gomez is the cover subject of the latest Seventeen magazine.

The cute actress poses for a series of photos inside the special prom issue, while also opening up about a number of issues in her life. What has she learned? What is most important to her?

The following interview excerpts supply a few answers...

On appreciating what she has: I get hurt - everybody does - but I'm more at the point where I'm looking at all the good things in my life. I have a healthy family who's alive that I'm blessed to have, and wonderful friends.

Seventeen Cover

On this year's fashion: My least favorite trend of 2009 would have to be broad-shouldered jackets. I'm probably bitter because I can't pull it off! It did look good on certain people, just not me.

On the World Wide Web: I've given up the Internet. I don't read comments, and I don't go on any of the sites anymore, and I just feel better. And it's not about being a celebrity — you get on MySpace, Facebook, there's all these different outlets where people can just feel like nobody's watching them so they can just say whatever they want to say.

On posing for covers: I never dreamed about being on magazine covers. I always dreamed that I would get to do what I loved - this was just a bonus!

It's hard not to adore Gomez. She's young, talented and seems to have a regular head on her shoulders. We wish her nothing but a lifetime of success.

She's known for her large breasts and rich French husband.

But Salma Hayek has made news over the last couple months for two other reasons:

  1. She guest-starred on 30 Rock in a hilarious role as Jack Donaghy's girlfriend;
  2. She changed her hairstyle.

While the sitcom stint resulted in a few of the funniest scenes on TV, the change to Hayek's appearance as led to an Internet uproar.

Fans are split on whether they prefer the actress with long hair or with a bob. Compare the looks below and decide for yourself:

  • Salma Hayek Lace Dress
  • Salma Hayek Golden Globes Dress

Which hairstyle is most beautiful?

We're less than a month away from the premiere of American Idol season nine.

While the major show news over the last few months involved Ellen DeGeneres as the new judge; the latest buzz regarding the competition revolves around the man that truly makes the series what it is: Simon Cowell.

According to Simon's brother Tony, a radio personality with a weekly podcast: “A press statement is being prepared which will confirm what everybody expected: Simon will leave Idol at the end of 2010 to concentrate on bringing the American version of ‘X Factor’ to U.S. TV in 2011.”

If true, that would make this Cowell's final season as a panelist. Would you even watch American Idol if he left?

Simon

Regarding the season itself, Fox announced a few key dates for it this week:

  • January 12, 13, 19, 20, 26, 27; February 2, 3: Nationwide auditions for Hollywood. Rotating guest judges will include Victoria Beckham, Mary J. Blige, Kristin Chenoweth, Neil Patrick Harris, Joe Jonas, Avril Lavigne, Katy Perry, and Shania Twain.
  • February 9: Hollywood rounds. DeGeneres debuts.
  • February 17: 24 semifinalists announced.
  • March 16: 12 finalists announced.

Also of note: there will be no Wild Card round this year, as the controversial addition to last season's Idol gave the judges the power to keep one contestant on even after he/she was voted off by viewers.

Remember: THG is your destination for complete American Idol recaps, videos and commentaries once the season begins!

Women throughout America - at least those that don't work as cocktail waitresses in Las Vegas - already hate Tiger Woods.

It sounds like professional athletes will soon feel the same way.

According to various sources, Warner Brothers has registered TMZSports.com, a sports-themed domain meant to serve as complement to its popular celebrity gossip website.

Insiders say this spin-off was planned long before Woods - and his wayward driver - made it clear just how much the public is interested in the private lives of sports stars. But it's safe to assume Tiger's nine-inch iron play helped speed along the decision.

Meanwhile, that sound you hear? It's the furious deletion of names/numbers from the cell phones of athletes all over the world.

Who has the most to fear if TMZ Sports comes to fruition? Handsome stars with exciting love lives, such as those pictured above: Tom Brady, Tony Romo, Reggie Bush and Alex Rodriguez.

Who has the least to fear? The Hollywood Gossip!

We're so confident in our fan base (thank you, readers!), website features (TMZ doesn't even have a photo gallery!) and versatility (why visit two TMZ sites when THG has the latest on the world of sports and entertainment on a daily basis!) that we have no qualms writing an article about a competitor.

How come? Because our number-one priority is delivering news to our loyal fan base. If it's happening anywhere in the world, it's happening on The Hollywood Gossip.

The face on Lynne Curtin? Not real.

The situations she and her castmates on The Real Housewives of Orange County find themselves in? Also not real.

Derek Lowe Mug Shot

The legal problems now facing Curtin and husband Frank? Very real.

The pair were scheduled to appear in a California courtroom yesterday to answer questions regarding a $1.2 million judgment they've been ordered to pay to a former business partner... but the couple simply bailed on the proceedings.

As a result, TMZ reports a judge has issued a bench warrant for Lynne and Frank's arrest. Unlike the ridiculous exploits on Curtin's scripted reality show, this is actually a serious matter.

In August, meanwhile, Lynne and Frank were evicted from their home for failing to pay rent.

We can think of at least one New Year's resolution for Curtin: focus more on your family than on fame. This is a novel concept for any supposedly Real Housewife, we know.

But give it a shot.

The shocking relationship betwen Jamie-Lynn Sigler and Jerry Ferrera is over.

After more than a year of dating, the couple - who met when Sigler guest-starred on Entourage as Ferrera's character's girlfriend - has reportedly parted ways.

Timberlake and Biel Photo

Sigler attended last week's premiere of It's Complicated by herself, and a friend says the actress has actually turned to Lance Bass for a shoulder to lean on.

"Lance is a really good friend to Jamie," the source told The New York Daily News. "He's been helping her out and giving her good advice."

While Sigler wasn't thrilled about the split, the insider says she's doing okay.

"It came at a good time for Jamie-Lynn. She was coming home to New York for the holidays anyway, and she wanted to do her own thing for a little while and definitely be out of Hollywood."

As for Ferrera? Well, he'll never date anyone as hot as Sigler again. Sorry, dude.
