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.

As 2009 draws to a close, The Hollywood Gossip staff is proud and excited to present 10 finalists for its prestigious, Third Annual Celebrity of the Year award.

These stars have given us their best, their worst, their naked photos (sometimes) and their hilarious, ridiculous scandals (often). It's time for THG to pay tribute to their greatness.

Earlier this week, we continued the '09 countdown with Molly Malaney and Melissa Rycroft in the #9 spot.

Today: Celebrity of the Year finalist #8 … Carrie Prejean!

When Barack Obama took office in January, who would have guessed that a blonde beauty queen would create more diversion between Republicans and Democrats than the nation's first African-American President?

But after Prejean took her stance on "opposite marriage" on April 19, all heck broke loose. Perez Hilton called her a "bitch," Carrie claimed she lost the Miss USA title due to her opinion, and every conservative alive chose this woman as their cause's role model.

She was discriminated due to her beliefs, they cried! She's a poor, defenseless, targeted Christian, they insisted!

After all, God was testing Prejean and while she passed, the rest of society failed. So said Carrie's supporters.

They stuck by her through rumors of a boob job; through blatant lies over topless photos; and through the eventual loss of her Miss California crown after Donald Trump grew sick of Carrie's act.

But Prejean continued to play the role of victim, even though her religion is the most popular in the country and even though her stance on gay marriage is agreed upon by a majority of voters. That wasn't enough. She was wronged dammit!

And you know who will pay for those wrongs, don't you? The consumers that actually bought Prejean's memoir, which recounted her harrowing story in detail. It's a nightmare many of us still can't awake from.

This is getting really sad.

Kim Kardashian - the woman largely responsible for Speidi, Jersey Shore and other talentless people doing absolutely nothing in order to reap attention and money - has lost her innate ability to create headlines.

Kardashian Christmas Card

Just a few months ago, Kim would have posed for Playboy, banged a guy on video or at least stood on the red carpet in a tight top. Now? She's Tweeted a picture of herself at the dentist. Seriously.

“At the dentist for a good teeth cleaning!” she wrote. “This is serious!”

No, Kim, this is pathetic. Please take your clothes off again. That was a more respectable way to get attention...

First, she bashed the heck out of the Twilight Saga.

Then, she got denied from a 21-and-over club.

In both recent instances, the gist was the same: Miley Cyrus doesn't see herself as a typical 17-year old. She wants to be older, more mature, edgier.

Along those lines, Cyrus told British TV show GMTV this week that she wants to leave the pop music world behind.

"I want to do my last pop record, I'm working on a record right now. I kinda want... something edgier and not have to worry about people saying, 'Oh, this isn't what her fans want to listen to.' Because in a few years, as I grow up, so will my fans and I won't have to focus on that as much and I'll be able to have more of the sound of music that I'm into."

Last month, Miley admitted she had never heard a Jay Z song. So it makes sense she'd wanna branch out and give the world of country or adult contemporary a shot. But will her fans follow her there?

Only time, and album sales, will tell.

Khloe Kardashian has been called many things: attention-starved, pathetic, desperate for love, much uglier than Kim Kardashian.

But the reality TV star's honesty has never been called into question... until now!

In an interview with Radar Online, Liza Morales - the ex-girlfriend of Lamar Odom and father of his two children - called Khloe out as a liar

“Friends and family informed me of a recent cover story on Khloe Kardashian which had several inaccuracies," Morales said. “First of all, it was reported that Khloe and my daughter Destiny have bonded. It quotes Khloe saying my daughter flew out to LA to meet Khloe when her and Lamar first started dating, that is basically a lie."

In the article, Khloe also said she had yet to meet her stepson Lamar Jr. because he was "too young to travel." But Morales shot down that claim, as well.

“The truth is my 8-year-old son told me he didn’t want to meet her at that time," she said.

While she may sound very bitter, Morales ended the interview on a positive note:

“I feel eventually Khloe and I should meet... some seem to be quotes directly from Khloe herself and I do know how the press can twist people’s words sometimes to be more exciting. I hope she didn’t say these things because they are blatant lies and I would hate to think she would lie about my children.”

If you wanna spend time with any Kardashian, Liza, just bring a camera crew along and they'll meet you anywhere.

Adam Lambert was honored by Barbara Walters this week as one of the most Fascinating People of 2009.

However, during the special, ABC special did NOT air a clip of the same-sex kiss that took place between the singer and his keyboard player at this year's AMAs.

Said the network in its defense: "It was an editorial decision to show very little from the performance and focus on the fresh, new interview with Adam Lambert."

Hmmm... sounds fishy for two reasons:

  1. The interview largely focused on the kiss.
  2. The network did show Lady GaGa kissing a woman during an interview with that superstar, saying of the difference: "The Lady Gaga kiss was used quickly in context of things that upset her father."

ABC added:

"The network has a solid record of showing gay men and women in primetime, which is why GLAAD has given ABC top honors for the positive portrayal of gays and lesbians for the past several years."

That may be true, but Lambert fans can't get over the double standard applied to this burgeoning star. Will ABC's statements satisfy his rabid fan base? If you're included in it, you tell us!

Based on set shots from Sex and the City 2, the movie's character will at least flash back to the 1980s during the sequel.

Based on the official poster for the film, though, Carrie Bradshaw in looking to the future.

Sex and the City 2 Scene

Sarah Jessica Parker is featured on the first poster released for this highly-anticipated flick, which comes out in May. What do you make of her gold-themed, futuristic look? Fashion forward or fashion folly?

While older movie-goers are excited for the Sex and the City sequel, the tween set can't wait to see Miley Cyrus in The Last Song.

You can check out that movie's poster now, too.

Yup, this seems about right:

Holly Madison and Benji Madden are rumored to be dating. This can't come as a shock to anyone familiar with each celebrity's need for attention and/or questionable taste in the opposite sex. No offense, Hugh Hefner and Paris Hilton.

Okay, some offense.

A witness told Life & Style, the pair of D-listers was seen at a Starbucks together on Sunday.

“It was obvious something was going on between them,” said an onlooker. “Benji stood next to Holly with his arm around her. He was rubbing her lower back and the top of her butt, and she was hanging on his shoulder. They were laughing and flirting the entire time. They couldn’t take their hands off each other!”

Madison isn't shying away from the fact that she has a man. She Tweeted this week:

“You can say I’m hanging out with someone I have a crush on. [Benji] is just someone I have a crush on... for now!"

But, hey, if another wrinkly old man comes along with a TV show, you'll have some competition, Benji!

Darn you, Robert Pattinson!

For weeks, the media has been quiet about you and Kristen Stewart. Sure, there was still the occasional, false story about you two moving in together - but at least the painful rumors about whether or not a relationship existed had died down.

Now, they're starting up again; and you have no one but yourself to blame for it!

In the latest issue of Italian Vanity Fair, Pattinson distracts from his sexy cover shot by stating: I am single... almost everything that came out about my private life is false.

But why would celebrity gossip publications makes up such dating chatter?

"I think it happens because, really, there is not much to say about what I’m doing,” Pattinson said. “While I am filming, I live practically [like a] recluse in [a] hotel. I come out only to work, and sometimes to go out for dinner. But, if you read the magazines, it seems that I have a frantic high life.”

Sigh. Here we go again.

Last month, witnesses swore Robert and Kristen were spotted around NYC together. Should we believe them, or the man himself?

Once and for all: Do you think Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are dating?

Over the past couple months, Tila Tequila has claimed Shawne Merriman abused her; ranted naked on video; and accused Rihanna of spreading Herpes.

But just when we thought the troubled bisexual couldn't get any loopier, she announced on USTREAM last night that she's engaged to Casey Johnson.

"This is exclusive and going to be all over the news tomorrow... my girlfriend has asked me to marry her," Tila said, flashing a 17-carat ring and adding: "My baby takes care of me. Beat that J.Lo! Beat that Khloe and Lamar!"

Prior to possibly popping the question to Tequila, Casey Johnson was best known for allegedly lighting Courtenay Semel's hair on fire.

Engagement Claim

This announcement raises numerous questions, of course, not the least of which is whether or not Tila is under heavy medication.

One also can't help but wonder if the ridiculously huge ring (pictured above) is real, an accusation Tequila scoffs at, stating the rock is "not fake, because my baby is a f****** baller. She's a billionaire! She's the heiress of Johnson and Johnson. Anyway, we are going to make love tonight for our honeymoon."

Ummm... honeymoons take place after the wedding, Tila. Actually, nevermind. That confusion is the least of your problems these days.

** UPDATE: Johnson was found dead on January 4. Our prayers go out to Tila and Johnson's family.

Holy weight loss!

On last night's The Biggest Loser finale, Danny Cahill didn't just take home the title - he set a series record for most pounds ever shed on the show!

The Oklahoma native, a father of two, dropped 239 pounds over the last few months, falling from 430 to 191 pounds and being named the reality program's champion over Rudy Pauls.

After earning the prize of $250,000, Cahill turned emotional on the finale. He said:

“Somebody in the audience was holding up a picture of my grandmother, who I was so close to, who died about 10 years ago and every time I would go on a run, I would say, ‘This is for you, Ada,’ and I know she is up there watching me.”

Danny also credited his wife of 14 years, Darci, with helping him achieve his goals.

"My wife works out with me, and if it wasn't for her, I wouldn't have won Biggest Loser," he told Us Weekly. "My wife and I have been through a lot: 430 pounds that she didn't sign up for! She met me at 175 pounds."

239 pounds (or like four Nicole Richies) later, Danny Cahill is on top of the reaity TV world. Congrats!
