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.

For Emma Watson, will there be life after Harry Potter?

Considering the talent and maturity of this actress, who recently took a break from studying at Brown University, the answer is clearly yes. But she isn't sure what that will entail.

"Hermione is so close to who I am as a person that I've never really had to research a role," Watson says in the latest issue of Vogue. "I'm literally rediscovering what it means to be an actress... I've probably earned the right to screw up a few times...  I don't want the fear of failure to stop me from doing what I really care about."

Elsewhere in the interview, Watson touches on Daniel Radcliffe (watch him perform on Broadway HERE), romance and more. Excerpts are below.

Slowly, but surely, Clarence Clemons is recovering from a stroke.

The iconic saxophonist, best known for his long-time role in Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band, fell ill at home on Sunday and was taken to a hospital. What is his condition now?

A friend tells a Springsteen fansite that things "did not look good" yesterday, but today...

"Miracles are happening. His vital signs are improving. He’s responsive. His eyes are welling up when we’re talking to him. He was paralyzed on his left side, but now he’s squeezing with his left hand... The next five days will still be critical. But he’s a fighter.”

In case of the worst case scenario, members of the E Street Band were advised to head to Florida as quickly as they could following this incident. Let's all hope they'll simply interact with their good friend once they get there.

It wasn't all bad.

That's the message Denise Richards will send on July 26, in reference to her marriage to Charlie Sheen, when this Z-list actress releases a memoir. It will, hilariously, be titled "The Real Girl Next Door."

"People have only gotten the rotten stuff," Richards told Us Weekly about her relationship with Sheen. "There was a beautiful love story between he and I and I know that it went the way it went, but I talk more about how I felt during that time because I feel like a lot of women can relate to that."

Joanie Laurer wants to make one thing clear: she is porn to be wild!

The former wrestler, best known as "Chyna," has embarked on a new career in the adult film industry (Backdoor to Chyna comes out on June 27) and, as she told THG last week, couldn't be happier with her decision.

The New Chyna

But the same can't be said for Daisi Pollard Sepulveda, who works at the PR firm Model House Talent and has been representing Chyna for months.

Earlier this month, the publicist referred to Chyna's move into porn as a "negative life choice," a critique that has officially severed her professional relationship with Laurer.

Listen to Sepulveda's comments HERE and then read Chyna's letter in response to them, provided exclusively to The Hollywood Gossip, in which she cuts ties with the PR agency.

Anthony Weiner has likely taken the first step toward resignation. But if the embattled Congressman needed a push out of office, Barack Obama gave it to him this week.

In an interview with Ann Curry that airs today, the President was asked about Weiner and his texting scandal. He made his thoughts on it quite clear.

"If it were me, I'd resign," Obama said. "What he did was highly inappropriate.  I think he's embarrassed himself... he's embarrassed his wife and his family."

As he readies himself to run against a Republican candidate in 2012 - Michele Bachmann officially declared her intentions yesterday - Obama concluded:

"When you get to the point where, because of various personal distractions, you can't serve as effectively as you need to - at the time when people are worrying about jobs and their mortgages and paying the bills - then you should probably step back."

Do you think Weiner should resign?

As first reported by TMZ, Dourdan was popped around 3:30 a.m., after officer arrived on the scene of a car accident in which he slammed into a pair of parked cars. On the scene, cops discovered "a few pills" of the drug on the actor.

He was taken into custody and released on $10,000 bail a few hours later. Dourdan ran similarly afoul of the law in 2008 when he pleaded guilty to possession of cocaine and ecstasy.

Selena Gomez said she was feeling better yesterday, following a couple stops in the hospital over the weekend.

Then, the young singer went out and proved it.

After being forced to postpone a performance at the Santa Monica Mall on Friday, Gomez took to the stage last night, thanked fans for coming, told them "I love you very much" and performed a couple hits.

So, what caused Selena to spend a couple days under doctors' care?

"I was just very malnourished, so I was low on iron and exhausted," she told reporters.

So glad to see Gomez is feeling better, and let's hope this puts an end to those silly pregnancy rumors.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey are under legal attack for their physical attack against a bar patron the Dominican Republican earlier this year.

In February, Adolfo Arreola - a campus police officer from the University of Illinois at Chicago - got into it with Teresa Giudice at the Hard Rock Hotel in the Dominican Republic. From there, Caroline Manzo and other members of Teresa's family jumped in to the fracas.

Now, outlining the incident in detail, Arreola has filed suit against the Housewives.

He claims Giudice was spraying champagne in the club and nailed Arreola's mother-in-law in the eye with it. According to Adolfo, Teresa then joined other Housewives as they "brutally and savagely beat, kicked, punched, scratched, jumped on and smashed glass" on him and members of his family.

The alleged victims are asking for unspecified damages.

Roland Martin may not think Tracy Morgan has to apologize for his anti-gay rhetoric last week, but the actor himself is sounding truly contrite about his infamous routine in Nashville on June 3.

"I know how bad bullying can hurt," Morgan told Marc Malkin of E! News. "I was bullied when I was a kid. I'm sorry for what I said. I didn't mean it. I never want to use my comedy to hurt anyone. My family knew what it was like to feel different. My brother was disabled and I lost my father to AIDS in 1987."

The 30 Rock star says "gay people deserve the same right to be happy in this country as everyone else. Our laws should support that." And he will be doing all he can to ensure these words don't ring hollow.

Charlie Sheen has remained relatively quiet over the last few weeks. But might that be because he's planning a major career move?

Insiders tell TMZ the actor is entertaining a "big offer" to anchor a sitcom that would debut on broadcast television as soon as January 2012. The troubled star is allegedly in "deep negotiations" for a deal that would not even require a pilot.

Hey, Charlie!

Sheen has not said much publicly since predicting the demise of Two and a Half Men in in mid-May.

Any network might receive some angry letters if it hired Sheen, but is there any doubt viewers would tune in for his new show? Would you watch it?
