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.

Lisa Rinna is known for making a fool out of herself on red carpets around Hollywood. The former Days of Our Lives star co-hosts major events with Joey Fatone (for reasons beyond our comprehension) on behalf of TV Guide.

Therefore, perhaps it makes sense that Rinna told People Magazine this week that she's "more comfortable being nude than hosting an event," as the actress hyped the naked pictorial she'll be featured in for the May issue of Playboy.

Why is Rinna - who put the fear of God into readers with her appearance at this year's Academy Awards - baring it all at age 45, years after she posed nude for the magazine while pregnant?

"I want to encourage other women to be proud of their bodies no matter what age or size," she said. "After doing Dancing with the Stars, I definitely have a better body now than I did 11 years ago."

Think so, Lisa? Let's see if our readers agree...

From all accounts, and pictures of them at the park, Jessica Alba is a great mother to daughter Honor Marie.

However, we can't help but call out the beautiful actress on her recent choice to dress her poor child up in this flowered headband.

As you can tell from the photo below, Honor is looking off to the distance, hoping father Cash Warren comes by and removes the ridiculous accessory from her noggin:

What do you think of Honor's headband?

Katrina Darrell is not part of the semifinal round of American Idol.

Still, the former season eight contestant - who clashed with Kara DioGuardi over her lack of singing talent and lack of clothing - is staying in the news.

Return of Bikini Girl

Darrell (aka "Bikini Girl") is receiving offers as high as $10,000 for basic club appearances, according to TMZ. There is one string (bikini) attached, of course:

She has to show up in a bathing suit.

The second round of semifinal auditions on American Idol was almost as much of a waste of two hours as this week's ridiculous special, The Bachelor: The Women Tell All.

Only two performances remotely stood out:

  • Adam Lambert closed the show with a rendition of The Rolling Stones' classic "Satisfaction." The judges were blown away, amazed that the singer could display such a range. We'd be shocked if he weren't voted through to the finals.

Watch his audition below:

  • After giving possibly the most awkward, boring pre-audition interview of all-time, Allison Iraheta took to the stage and rocked out to "Alone" by Heart. “You don’t even know how good you are,” Kara said.

Watch the performance and decide for yourself:

Despite no other contestant really performing well, one more man or woman will be included in the final 12 from this group.

It will likely come down to Matt Giraud, Megan Joy Corkery or Kris Allen. What do you think?

For Criss Angel and Holly Madison, the magic is over.

Following four months of dating and even rumors of an engagement, this couple has pulled the final rabbit out of its hat. The former Playboy Bunny and freaky magician are no longer an item.

"She was very much in love with him, and they're still very close friends," a source told E! News. "It was a conflict of schedules. She felt she couldn't devote 100 percent of her time in Vegas and his career at the expense of her career and her goals."

Madison will "come back to L.A. and pursue her career," the insider added, while we assume Angel will return to somehow bedding stars such as Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan and Britney Spears.

Kellie Pickler was a crowd and judge favorite on season five of American Idol. She even received consistent praise from Simon Cowell.

We wonder what the cantankerous British critic would say about Pickler's latest look, however.

The country-singing cutie has abandoned her adorable, bubbly look for something more Lisa Rinna-like. Take a look for yourself:

Has Kellie Pickler undergone plastic surgery?

Joanna Pacitti may have been disqualified from this season of American Idol.

But she's permitted into the bed of Mark Ballas any night of the week!

Indeed, the aspiring singer and the Dancing with the Stars professional have gone public with a relationship that reportedly began eight months ago.

The two most popular reality shows on the planet are colliding as Mark Ballas and Joanna Pacitti come out as a couple.

“She is the most supportive person in my life and she’s been great,” Ballas told People Magazine at yesterday's premiere of Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience. “We get to spend a lot of time together [and] we do pretty much everything together.”

Pacitti agrees.

“I think we have the perfect situation. We both get each other and understand schedules and even on a musical level, I’ve never met someone that’s so passionate about music…that’s what I live for so it’s amazing to be with someone who gets it.”

Ballas previously dated his former Dancing with the Stars partner, Sabrina Bryan.

We kan't say we saw this event koming for Kim Kardashian.

The former sex tape star attended the 2009 Diamond Information Center Dinner earlier this week. It was an event hosted by actress Julianne Moore and featuring the former president of Botswana.

The private dinner honored various designers and diamonds, as Hollywood pretty much flaunted its wealth in the face of growing economic distress. That's always nice to see.

Here are shots of Kim at the ceremony. Click on each to enlarge:

The second round of semifinal auditions on season eight of American Idol were scheduled for last night.

Unfortunately, Barack Obama decided that a nationally televised address to Congress, regarding the dire economic situation, took precedent over Paula's latest antics and Ryan's latest immature jokes.

The delay has simply increased anticipation for tonight's performances. Here's a quick rundown of who will take the stage, along with the odds of America voting each singer through to the finals:

  • Nick Mitchell (10-1): Sketch comedian that goes by the alter ego "Norman Gentle."
  • Adam Lambert (6-1): Theatrical, controversial, over-the-top stage actor.
  • Megan Corkrey (8-1): A font designer with a two-year old son named Ryder.
  • Kris Allen (20-1): Student at the University of Central Arkansas, majoring in business and not having a lot of air time so far.
  • Mishavonna Henson (12-1): 18 years old, California native, long first name.
  • Matt Breitzke (15-1): Likable welder, but may have lost "average Joe" status/popularity to Michael Sarver.
  • Kai Kalama (22-1): Plays guitar, ukulele, bass, piano and drums.
  • Jasmine Murray (5-1): Only 16 years old, adorable, strong voice.
  • Jesse Langseth (17-1): Dissed by Simon during the opening auditions; brother is Grammy Award-winner Johnny Lang.
  • Matt Giraud (3-1): Michigan native is a dueling piano player and early fan favorite.
  • Allison Iraheta (15-1): Junior high school student that has been signing since she was five.
  • Jeanine Vailles (30-1): Not a second of air time yet this season.

Matt Giraud, Adam Lambert and Jasmine Murray have each received ample screen time in their run up to tonight's semifinal performances on American Idol.

Can you hear that? It's the screams of millions and millions of teenagers across the country.

Many have already started to line up at theaters for this Friday's opening of Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience.

The behind-the-scenes look at Nick, Joe and Kevin premiered in Hollywood earlier this week, as the world's sexiest siblings were joined at the event by a few of their closest friends.

Here's a look at the young studs themselves at the premiere:
