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.

This is just sad.

Someone needs to tell Katrina Darrell that her 15 minutes of fame were over a long time ago. American Idol fans have moved on to contestants with actual talent, such as Danny Gokey and Adam Lambert.

Remember Darrell? She became known as "Bikini Girl" for donning a bathing suit to her original audition.

As you can see below, not much has changed. The aspiring singer/famous person is still trying to remain relevant, sporting a bikini pretty much anywhere she goes. Such as a restaurant. Where nary a patron appears to even notice her...

Looks like Ashley Tisdale and Miley Cyrus have a lot more in common than their status as Disney icons.

While the actresses may appear different - one remains away from the spotlight with boyfriend Jared Murillo, while the other parades Justin Gaston around town like a new puppy - Tisdale and Cyrus do at least share the same taste in fashion.

Over the past few weeks, each has been spotted wearing the same tie-dyed tunic.

Who looks better in it?

On her reality show, Denise Richards attempts to claim that her life is complicated.

But the outcome for this terrible actress and exploitive mother was very simple on Dancing with the Stars: she and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy were eliminated last night.

The pair got the boot after performing a samba dance-off against fellow contestants Holly Madison and Dmitry Chaplin.

Booted Dancers

“I had fun! When else am I going to get to dress up like this, work with someone like Maks and be able to do a family show that my daughters can watch together,” Richards said after the results were announced.

Naturally, she couldn't do an interview without mentioning daughters Lola and Sam.

“They love watching us. We TiVo the show and we watch it together, but every time I have to go to rehearsal they go ‘too much dancing.’ It’s hard to find balance. I think they will be relieved it’s over."

For sure. It leaves more time for the family to "accidentally" be photographed all around town.

Kim Kardashian Saves the World.

So reads the feature story inside the April/May issue of Complex. A tad exaggerated? Perhaps.

But the sexy photo shoot inside is actually one of the coolest things Kim has ever done.

Kardashian is the focus of a spread that represents the magazine's annual Green edition. For the occasion, she was shot in front of a series of backgrounds that highlights our planet’s problems. To wit:

Kardashian also spoke about herself in a featured interview. She said that her reality show has given fans new insight into her life:

"I do think that I’ve grown and I base it all on my show. People can make up any story to go along with a picture, but when you see someone’s real life, it just opens up a whole different perception of me - and it’s totally who I am."

Courtenay Semel has gone from munching Tila Tequila's carpet to vomiting all over that of her living room.

As a result, the daughter of former Yahoo! CEO Terry Semel has checked into rehab.

Over the past few months, Semel has broken up with Tequila, assaulted a security guard and allegedly beat up new girlfriend Casey Johnson, setting her hair on fire. Looks like she's a bit late getting help for herself.

"Courtenay has indeed checked into rehab... She’s emotionally, physically and mentally exhausted. She is now taking responsibility for her actions and is excited for her chance to start over," said Semel's rep.

This begs two questions:

  1. Is she going to rehab for drugs or drinking?
  2. What the heck does the representative of Courtenay Semel do?!?

Miley Cyrus is excited about Hannah Montana: The Movie, which hits theaters on April 10.

The actress hopes it won't be the last time people see her as the beloved Disney character, however.

"This movie was never meant to be the end of Hannah Montana," Cyrus says in April's Billboard magazine. "The thing is, a lot of people put where the show's future lays in my hands — and it's not up to me. It's up to Disney and whether they want more episodes, and we hope that they do."

While Miley is at least saying the right things for the moment, she does admit that her run as Hannah will come to an end eventually.

Empowering?

"It's just an honor for people to be able to relate to me and my music — and not so much the character anymore," Cyrus said. "I can't be Hannah Montana forever. I have to have something after this. I can't do this when I'm 30."

For now, the actress is content to spend her time making fun of Asians and seeking attention wherever she goes.

Last week, Lindsay Lohan lamented the fact that top directors in Hollywood didn't wanna work with her, while also whining about how the recession has affected her mortgage payments.

But the unemployed actress wants the celebrity gossip world to a) understand that she's not spoiled; and b) leave her the heck alone.

Stripped and Bloody

In a wide-ranging, self-serving interview with E! Online, Lohan complained about the attention given to her personal life. She also insisted that she's a good person. You have to read these quotes to believe them...

On what kind of human being she is: I'm really a good person and I have a good heart and just want to work.

On her passions in life: I don't drink, I don't do drugs and I don't lie. I love to act and write and be creative, and I want to help people by playing characters that can send a positive message out to whomever may need it. *

* THG Note: In the 2007 film, I Know Who Killed Me, Lohan portrayed a stripper.

On moving on: My past is my past and it's been a long one, but I'm growing more and learning more day by day. I'm not the same person and I don't make the same mistakes... I move forward and I change... If people would just leave my personal life alone - because it's really not that interesting - then I could land a great role.

On her goals: I'd like to have my own charity, do work overseas, be in Oscar-nominated films, write movies, produce movies/shows/videos, design clothes, make music, write books, etc. It's all possible if people would just stop judging me and accusing me and making me out to be this aloof, spoiled, ungrateful and unprofessional person that I am not and could never be.

On learning from mistakes
: You have to make mistakes to learn so that you can grow up and live your life the right way. Things happen, and you have to move on, be strong and believe in yourself. It would be really nice if people would believe in me.

Maksim Chmerkovskiy has said it's "very unfair" that she's on the show.

Holly Madison has labeled her the "biggest competition."

Still, in the face of such obstacles, Melissa Rycroft is doing more than just persevering on Dancing with the Stars; she's dominating! The former Bachelor contestant earned 27 points for her Foxtrot last night.

Foxtrotters

"Everyone's main goal is to have fun, have a good time, make friends - and if there is a competition, it's a friendly competition," Rycroft told Us Weekly yesterday, regarding comments such as the pair cited above. "There's nobody slashing other people's costumes backstage!"

That's a relief.

As for her post-Dancing plans, Rycroft says she'll return to Texas.

"I'm going back to Dallas. I don't know what I'll do, but I'm going home, for sure!"

Because Barack Obama thinks another Presidential address is more important than this week's motown-based auditions, American Idol has been bumped to tomorrow night.

But with the show down to its final 10 contestants, it seems like an ideal time to unveil our first power rankings of the season. Who's on top? And who is barely hanging on to the number-five spot? Find out now!

5. Lil Rounds: No doubt she can carry a bit note, but Randy made an astute observation last week: the talented single mother needs to work on her verses a bit.

4. Kris Allen: The ladies love him. And, following last week's audition-stealing rendition of "To Make You Feel My Love," so does Simon Cowell.

3. Matt Giraud: Let's not crown him as the next Justin Timberlake just yet. But he possesses a distinct voice and has picked up momentum with every performance.

2. Danny Gokey: Motown Week ought to be ideal for this talented crooner, as he struggled a bit last week with "Jesus Take the Wheel." But he's a major fan favorite and the judges need to nit-pick each week just to find flaws in his auditions.

1. Adam Lambert: Even those that hate this theatrical singer have to admit that he leaves an impression. Buzz builds for Lambert each week, and nothing epitomizes a favorite more than the fact that we can't wait to see what he comes up with for each performance.
