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.

We were surprised that Kris Allen won American Idol.

Still, that wasn't the most unexpected thing to take place on the stage of the Nokia Theatre last night.

As part of the two-hour finale, Kara DioGuardi sang a duet with former nemesis Katrina Darrell! (Remember her? Darrell earned the nickname "Bikini Girl" during the initial rounds of Idol auditions for donning a swimsuit while she sang for the judges.)

Kara and Katrina on Stage

Moreover, at the end of their "Vision of Love" rendition, DioGuardi flashed her own bikini body for the world to see.

We strongly recommend watching the duet, if only for Randy Jackson's priceless reaction when Darrell comes out on stage, clearly enhanced in one area of her body.

Compare Kara and Katrina below and then answer our poll question:

Kara DioGuardi, Bikini

Who has the better bikini body?

A couple weeks ago, Shanna Moakler resigned her post with the Miss California pageant, citing the lying, manipulative, deceitful ways of winner Carrie Prejean.

Ever since, the former Miss USA champion has faced a mountain of criticism, most referring to her as a hypocrite for calling out Carrie on posing naked. After all, didn't Shanna bare all in Playboy?

Trump vs. Prejean

"For the people who are like, 'How can you say this? You have this persona, and your personal relationship is a mess, and you posed for Playboy,'" Moakler said to Us Weekly, "I'm not a title holder. I'm not in a contract. I posed for Playboy years after I was a title holder."

That's a good point; though the naked pictorial still gives Moakler slightly shakier ground to stand on.

As for Prejean, please tell us how you really feel about her, Shanna.

"Carrie is very, very nice when she wants something. And when it's her turn to do her end of the deal, it's very complicated. She's late, she doesn't show up. It's always a problem. I can deal with difficult, but I  can't deal with nasty and she was getting nasty."

Moreover, Moaker says Prejean sent her hurtful emails after the press conference, taunting Shanna and saying she "should be thanking [Prejean] for extending my fifteen minutes."

Moakler also said Carrie sent several biblical quotes "that I felt were inappropriate."

Wait, Prejean tried to impose her personai views on someone else? That doesn't sound like her at all!

From handsome also-ran to American Idol champion.

Kris Allen completed an incredible journey this week by being named the eighth-ever winner of the most popular show on television.

Overlooked when the competition began - at the outset, Simon Cowell even suggested that Allen should keep his marriage a secret because he would only advance based on his looks - Allen shed his underdog label and overcame Adam Lambert in a tightly-contested finale.

What was Allen's reaction upon winning? He said: "Adam deserves this. I'm sorry." Class act (and we agree!).

Will Kris follow in the successful footsteps of past victors such as Carrie Underwood? Or the anonymous footsteps of champs such as Reuben Studdard?

Only time will tell. For now, let's just wish a hearty congratulations to one of the most unexpected winners in show history!

Forget Jon & Kate Plus 8.

The story of Jon & Kate Plus 8, in Addition to One Lover and Two Disloyal Brothers is far more interesting.

A couple weeks after he accused sister Deanna Hummel of nailing reality TV star Jon Gosselin, Jason Hummel certainly isn't backing off his story. In fact, he's reveling in it.

"I am not a liar," he told E! News earlier today. "The rumors are true. It feels good to let people know that I am not the liar."

It must. Clearing up one's public perception - which never would have existed in the first place if Jason hadn't gone on record about the affair - is far more pressing than remaining loyal to one's sister.

In the video below, Jason adds that he thinks Jon and Deanna will continue to see one another; Jon may have tried to bribe him with Philles tickets; and the couple would defy Bristol Palin's anti-sex advice "at least three times per week."

Meanwhile, Deanna's OTHER brother, John, is also confirming his sister's affair.

We actually wouldn't mind seeing Kara DioGuardi nude.

Sorry, did we write that out loud?

Kara Fashion

The thought occurred to us because the American Idol judge is the latest pseudo celebrity to appear in an ad for PETA. Unlike most other animal-loving stars (from Audrina Patridge to Holly Madison), however, DioGuardi is fully clothed on her poster.

She's also advocating a far simpler cause than vegetarianism or anti-fur wearing: be nice to your dog.

Kara DioGuardi loves dogs almost as much as everyone hates the song she co-wrote for this season's American Idol champion.

For those that are still celebrating the death of Marissa on The OC, Mischa Barton is out for revenge.

The mediocre, incredibly thin actress is returning to the small screen this fall. She'll star on The Beautiful Life, a new CW series airing on Wednesday nights and produced by Ashton Kutcher.

The drama focuses on series of male and female models, all of whom share an apartment in New York City. It's like a reality show come to scripted life!

Click on the following photos of Barton from the pilot episode:

The Beautiful Life also marks the television show debut of Corbin Bleu. The High School Musical actor is featured in the full cast photo below:

** Update: We've been told the pics above are actually of actress Sara Paxton, NOT Mischa Barton. Our bad. Still, everything else is true: Barton and Bleu will be starring in this new series.

Lisa Rinna has spent a lifetime getting fake parts placed on her body.

Now, the actress is trying to make some real cash money off those procedures.

Rinna has released "Rinnavation." While we can appreciate the pun of a title, we can't fathom why anyone would spend one cent to read about someone getting lots of plastic sugery.

Then again, we couldn't fathom why anyone would wanna see Rinna nude in Playboy, either, but that magazine paid her a lot to don her birthday suit.

Click on the pics below for larger images of Rinna shilling for her book:

The mother of Carrie Prejean might be a lesbian.

Valerie Vetrano tells Star magazine that she and Prejean's mother, Francine Coppola, were involved in a relationship that lasted until the very night Carrie finished second in the Miss USA contest.

Trump vs. Prejean

"Francine and I dated," Vetrano said, while another source confirmed the affair, saying it never had a chance, due to Coppola's hesitance to be open with her family:

"Francine explained how she was a Christian and that her loved ones would never accept her if she were gay."

Fortunately for the National Organization of Marriage, Carrie Prejean has not caught gay from her mother.

Reportedly, Carrie had no idea about her mother's sexual orientation, but the friend quoted above thinks her reaction to gay marriage might be different if Prejean's mom had been honest.

"Valerie feels that if Francine had just been open about her sexuality with her family, Carrie would have a better understanding of what gay people have to go through. They just want equal rights.”

Melissa Rycroft didn't want your pity when Jason Mesnick broke her heart on national television, and she doesn't want it now that she finished third on Dancing with the Stars.

"I wanted that mirrorball trophy, I really did," the beauty told Us Weekly. "But I don't need it because I know I've accomplished more than I ever thought I could."

Paso Doble Routine

After all, how can Rycroft complain? Considering where she's been over the last year, Melissa is just grateful to have been one of the final three competitors, along with champion Shawn Johnson and Sex and the City star Gilles Marini.

"Never in a million years did I imagine I'd be dancing with an Olympian and someone who was in a blockbuster movie. My life in the past 11 months has changed so much."

Will it change more in the future? Will Rycroft pursue other headline-making activities or roles?

"I really don't know. I'm not going to pursue anything right now, but if things come my way I will look into them. Never say never!"

We won't, M Ry. In the meantime, relive this star's journey on DWTS by clicking on the images below...

The Kardashian have been viktimized by another set of kriminals.

Just one day about their Miami clothing store was vandalized, the sisters' L.A. boutique, Dash, was also made into a krime scene.

Making it Sort of Official

While the South Beach incident may have been the work of random gangs, this illegal activity was klearly aimed at the Kardashians. The vandals left graffiti on the window that reads "We [Love] You, Kim."

As Khloe Kardashian blogs, though, these bad guys won't have a negative affect on the family or its plans:

I hope the disgusting people who did this know that these little activities of theirs don't discourage us.  We are no less excited for the opening of our Miami store.  Yes, this is DEFINITELY a bump in the road, but it's a small bump in the grand scheme of things.  It's disappointing, but certainly not discouraging!  A little graffiti won't bring us Kardashian women down!!! 

That's true. However, a hefty helping of athletic prowess? That's bound to bring Khloe and Kim down on you.
