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.

It's a great time to be Scotty McCreery.

The American Idol champion releases his debut album ("Clear as Day") in a week and has also just announced that he'll tour with country superstar Brad Paisley in 2012!

Cities, dates and other details will soon be released, but Scotty has Tweeted how “it’s really humbling that somebody like him would invite me to tour w/ him," adding: “I just hope i’m ready for any pranks he throws my way.”

Since he was crowned the season 10 winner in May, McCreery's exclusive Wal-Mart CD has sold 185,000 copies, and his first single, “I Love You This Big,” reached number 15 on Billboard‘s Country Songs chart. Far from shabby for the young artist.

Enjoy Jacqueline Laurita for a few more episodes of The Real Housewives of New Jersey this season, viewers. They may be the final time you see her on Bravo.

With rumors swirling that this franchise will replace at least one cast member before next summer, Laurita's name has jumped to the top of the list. Why might she be a goner? Consider these recent Tweets from Jacqueline:

  • 2b honest.I'm tired of the BS &shitty low life people.I didn't know this was what I signed up 4.I have 2rise above&move on.
  • I can't be part of the Charade anymore.It's unsettling. It's disturbing & against what I stand for. I'm a REAL housewife.

What does Jacqueline Laurita stand for? What qualifies her to be a REAL housewife? It's all very unclear.

But how would you feel if she did not return to the series? That's what we want to know: Do you want to see Jacqueline Laurita come back to The Real Housewives of New Jersey?

The bad news for Elisabetta Canalis? She was eliminated from Dancing with the Stars this week.

The good news for Elisabetta Canalis? Ex-boyfriend George Clooney made a rare public statement about a relationship and came to the model's defense.

  • The Clooney Death Stare
  • Elisabetta Canalis Red Carpet Pic

In response to the latest issue of Us Weekly, which claims Canalis sent the Oscar winner a series of angry text messages after she learned he was dating Stacey Keibler, Clooney has released a statement that reads:

The story "was completely fabricated in order to sell magazines. I never comment on my personal life unless it affects others...and this lie affects others. Since I would be the only actual witness, I ask you to correct your story immediately, but that would assume you cared at all about telling the truth."

Don't hold your breath for a retraction, George.

The X Factor manufactured some drama around 19-year old contestant Tiah Tolliver last night.

After telling the judges she hopes to make it "platinum, double platinum and diamond," this full-lipped hopeful broke into a cover of "Impossible." Simon loved it. He said he had a "real feeling" about Tolliver.

But the other panelists didn't agree, causing Cowell to label them as "insane" and leading to another cover by Tiah. This time, of course, she received approval and acceptance into the next round. Was this supposed debate drummed up ahead of time? Of course. But that doesn't change the fact that Tiah Tolliver will be sticking around.

Does she deserve to be? You tell us...

Phillip Lomax does not lack for confidence.

This 21-one year old waiter from Seattle did his best impression of Frank Sinatra on The X Factor last night, as challenging an act to emulate as almost any that a contestant could attempt.

Did he pull it off? Did he try to come across as too cool? And what do you think of the fedora? Check out Lomax's cover of "Fly Me to the Moon" now.

Elaine Gibbs is a 53-year old grandmother who turned a quiet Carole King classic into her own last night.

Auditioning for the first time on The X Factor, this wedding singer belted out "You've Got a Friend," receiving a huge ovation from the audience and unanimous approval from the judges.

Watch her snippets of her rendition below and then compare it to a couple other THG favorites from this week: Drew Ryniewicz and Josh Krajcik.

Drew Ryniewicz made Justin Bieber proud last night.

Well, correction: the 14-year old from Arizona made the man who signed Justin Bieber proud.

After learning that Ryniewicz is a huge Belieber (quick, do you know Justin's favorite colors? Drew does.), this young hopeful took to The X Factor stage, hoping to impress a panel of judges that includes L.A. Reid, who warned the contestant that he might be extra harsh because he's so close to the song she covered, "Baby."

But Drew had little to worry about it. Watch her full audition below.

Josh Krajcik shared his gift with X Factor viewers last night.

The Columbus, Ohio native attended auditions with his proud mother, who gushed over her 30-year old offspring before he took the stage, saying how she'd always dreamed of Josh blowing Simon Cowell away with his talent.

And then Krajcik proceeded to do just that. Watch Cowell's expression after the contestant says what he does for a living ("I sling burritos") and then adds with a straight face that he's gonna sing the Etta James classic "At Last." Impressive stuff. It's okay to cry, Mrs. Krajcik. We understand...

Milton Bradley, a former outfielder who played for seven teams over 12 seasons and was known as much for his volatile temper as for his career OBP of .364, was arrested yesterday.

Milton Bradley Card

As detailed by TMZ, Bradley's wife called 911 around 2 p.m. from Los Angeles and said her husband was chasing her around with a baseball bat. The 33-year old slugger - who was arrested in January for a separate domestic violence act - was subsequently taken into custody and booked for assault with a deadly weapon.

He was released from jail later that night on $30,000 bail.

In 2007, Bradley tore his ACL during an argument with an umpire. He missed the rest of the season.

The most annoying celebrity on the planet is late, folks. For her next red carpet appearance? No.

“She was supposed to get her period and didn’t," a source close to Kim Kardashian (VERY close to Kim Kardashian, apparently) tells OK! Weekly.

Baby Time for Kim?

Of course, nowhere on this cover does it actually say Kim is pregnant, just that it's "baby time," a child is "on the way" and that the reality star is "showing already." If Kardashian were actually knocked up, the Internet would have exploded hours ago.

“Kim always thought she’d have several kids by age 30, so in her mind she’s behind schedule," an insider tells the tabloid. “Kim’s been going through all the K names. She even has a baby-name book and looks up the meaning of each one.”

Considering the family into which this kid will be born, permit us a suggestion: klusterfuck. Kim, you can call us for the meaning of that one.
