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.

Four minutes... three minutes... two minutes...

As her 15 minutes of fame winds down, eliminated American Idol contestant Katrina Darrell has come up with a way to extend her time in the spotlight:

Former Idoler

Goodbye, Bikini Girl! Hello, Naked Girl!

In an interview with Access Hollywood, Darrell made a truly startling admission: she'd consider posing in Playboy.

“[I’ve had] a lot of different offers, like Vegas promotion offers. Of course Playboy has called... I wouldn’t say no, but at the same time I don’t want to stunt my career by jumping into that too soon and be labeled once again, as ‘just a body.’ But I don’t knock it."

How much would you pay to see Katrina Darrell nude?

A few words of advice, Kat: with competition from fellow Playboy hopeful Ranae Shrider, you should jump on this opportunity as soon as possible.

Soon, the eyes of American Idol fans will turn to competitors that sound great on stage, as opposed to look great in swimwear.

On February 11, American Idol viewers will officially learn the identities of this season's top 36 contestants.

It's never too early to speculate about the favorites, however, as we've scoured initial auditions, conducted interviews and searched the Internet to come up with the 10 singers most likely to following in the championship footsteps of Carrie Underwood, David Cook and others.

Agree with these selections? Disagree? Send in your feedback today!

1. Lil Rounds. This Tennessee native received a standing ovation for her rendition of "I Will Always Love You" this week. A blend of Fantasia and Jennifer Hudson.

2. Danny Gokey. At 28, one of the most mature contestants. Tragic personal story, as his wife who died a month before his initial audition. Gokey's falsetto breaks in "I Heard It Through the Grapevine" suggest unique versatility.

3. Anne Marie Boskovich. Seems shy and a tad unprofessional, but can't argue with these looks and this talent.

4. Brent Keith Smith. Former contestant on Nashville Star. Country singers have a history of success (see Underwood, Carrie).

5. Kristen McNamara. See above description. Mix in attractive blonde looks.

Sorry, ladies. Paul Walker is off the market.

And the woman that snagged him isn't old enough to drink legally.

According to Star Magazine, the actor has proposed to his 19-year-old girlfriend, Jasmine Pilchard-Gosnell.

She's a student at the University Of California Santa Barbara.

Walker is 35 and this couple began dating when he was 32; meaning, yes, Pilchard-Gosnell was 16 at the time.

“Their age difference doesn’t scare him,” said the tabloid’s source. “He knows she’s the one.”

Look for Walker in this summer's Fast & Furious and/or a jail cell near you!

Michael Phelps received national acclaim for smoking the competition - to the tune of eight gold medals - at the 2008 Summer Olympics.

The swimmer has been dropped as a spokesman by a major brand, however, for smoking marijuana.

A few days after Phelps apologized for being caught with a bong at college party, Kellogg has fired the Olympian as a pitchman.

"We originally built the relationship with Michael, as well as the other Olympic athletes, to support our association with the U.S. Olympic team," a rep for the cereal maker said yesterday, adding that the swimmer's recent behavior is "not consistent with the image of Kellogg."

We hope Caroline Pal hasn't been dating Michael Phelps for the free cereal.

Meanwhile, USA Swimming, the sport's governing body, has suspended Phelps from competition for three months.

"This is not a situation where any anti-doping rule was violated, but we decided to send a strong message to Michael because he disappointed so many people, particularly the hundreds of thousands of USA Swimming member kids who look up to him as a role model and a hero," the federation said in a statement.

Did Michael Phelps deserve these punishments? You tell us!

Shrider has followed this quasi-naked lead, posing for a series of pics meant to prove to the men's magazine that she is masturbatory material. It may take more than this, however:

Positing his daughter in front of her mother's grave, and inviting a cameraman along for the ride, isn't enough for Larry Birkhead.

The father of Anna Nicole Smith's two-year-old daughter, Dannielynn, sat down for an interview with E! earlier this week. In the clip below, Birkhead gushes about the tyke he's likely making money off of via exclusives such as this.

"When I see Dannielynn and she is just a spitting image of her mother, that's a little bit...I don't want to say eerie, but it is a little odd - and it is kind of comforting as well."

We don't want to be morbid, but is it really a good idea to parade an infant in front of the camera? Especially when that infant's mother fell into a life of drugs and alcohol, rumored to brought on by her exposure to fame and fortune at a young age?

Click on the following pics of Dannielynn, meanwhile, to see if you really can spot her resemblance to Anna Nicole:

Compared to season eight contestants such as Lil Rounds and Danny Gokey, aspiring singer Joanna Pacitti has scarcely been seen so far on American Idol.

But early spoilers indicate this crooner reaches the round of 36, which may create quite a stir across the Internet.

As previously reported, Pacitti has already enjoyed a career in the spotlight: she starred in a production of Annie, appeared on an MTV series and released an album under A&M Records.

To critics, this ought to disqualify Pacitti from the competition. With that in mind, we can't wait to see how they react to the following news!
