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.

We may not be at liberty to reveal exactly what it's about, but we can say this about Super 8:

The mysterious thriller was number-one at the box office this weekend.

"This is such a waste of time, like taking a hooker to dinner."

So said Chris Rock at The Tony Awards last night, prior to reading the list of nominees for Best Musical. That's because the winner was more obvious than the eventual resignation of Anthony Weiner.

The Book of Mormon dominated an evening that also saw Brooke Shields curse, Daniel Radcliffe perform, Bono joked about his new musical and Neil Patrick Harris proved that he may be the best host in Hollywood.

We've posted a full list of winners below.

We already know that Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries are engaged.

But how did this true love come about? What family obstacles did these two overcome to arrive at the special place where E! is planning their wedding special? And why was Khloe so emotional about their coupling up?

All these burning questions and more were at the center of last night's Keeping Up with the Kardashians season premiere.

Kim kicked off the episode by telling her sisters she plans to give her children K names. They think she's crazy. Seriously, where would she possibly get that idea?!?

She isn't pregnant. Nor has she come down with Bieber Fever.

Instead, sources say Selena Gomez was rushed to the hospital on Thursday night - and then returned there again yesterday - due to concerns over high blood pressure.

Doctors have not yet discovered the basis for Selena's nausea and headache, which landed her under their care to begin with last week, following an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

She hopes to perform for fans on Monday at Santa Monica Place, which would kick off a 10-city tour for the artist. Let's hope she makes it and is feeling fine!

The first photos of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, taken about five months after she was tragically shot in the head, have emerged on Facebook.

The images depict a a woman in recovery, smiling and with short, dark hair. They were taken by a professional photographer on May 17 at TIRR Memorial Hermann Hospital, a day before Giffords under a cranioplasty.

The picture above was not altered or edited, according to her staff, who said it shows "Gabby has traveled a remarkable distance since Jan. 8."

“This was Mark and Gabby’s decision,” said spokesman CJ Karamargin of the pictures' release. “There is intense interest in the Congresswoman’s appearance and on the threshold of her going to outpatient treatment, we thought this was a good way to satisfy public curiosity.”

Giffords is expected to leave the hospital this month.

The man accused of opening fire on her and her constituents in Arizona has been deemed mentally incompetent.

Bret Lockett would like to clear something up: when he claimed he and Kim Kardashian carried on a five-month affair, he really meant that he's never met the reality star.

Facing a possible lawsuit for his allegations, the NFL player gave an interview to HLN last night, during which he clarified his remarks. Now, Lockett says he never met Kim and the entire relationship took place over text message.

Why, in that case, did he say he had been physical with Kardashian? Because she told him she was touching herself during exchanges. The whole tale now sounds as believable as any storyline on Kim's reality show.

You might say Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina have officially made it in the country music business.

The American Idol finalists - both of whom are faring very well on the charts - took the stage Friday night at Tennessee's famed Grand Ole Opry.

Alaina went first, covering "Blue" by LeAnn Rimes and then going into her first single, "Like My Mother Does."

From there, Scotty went with "I Love You This Big" and the George Strait track "Check Yes or No." Listen to the audio versions of all these performances below:

Anthony Weiner should really just resign already.

Under mounting pressure from fellow politicians, and with police getting involved in his recent spat of Twitter exchanges, the embattled Congressman has announced a leave of absence from his post.

What a Weiner

Can one seek professional help for being a horny moron?

A statement from Weiner's camp reads:

"[Congressman Weiner] will request a short leave of absence from the House of Representatives so that he can get evaluated and map out a course of treatment to make himself well. Congressman Weiner takes the views of his colleagues very seriously and has determined that he needs this time to get healthy and make the best decision possible for himself, his family and his constituents."

There's no defending Tracy Morgan's recent homophobic rant, in which he referred to gays who commit suicide as "pussies" and said he'd stab his son if he were to come out of the closet.

Tina Fey, who works with Morgan on 30 Rock and has known him for years, isn't trying to. She said the "violent imagery" of the diatribe was "disturbing" to her and Morgan clearly "went too far."

But the actress also stood up for her co-star in general, telling TMZ yesterday that Morgan isn't a bad person.

30 Rock Scene

Morgan's hate-filled speech "doesn't line up with the Tracy Morgan I know, who is not a hateful man and is generally much too sleepy and self-centered to ever hurt another person," said Fey.

She added, referring to Morgan's follow-up statement: "I hope for his sake that Tracy's apology will be accepted as sincere by his gay and lesbian coworkers at 30 Rock, without whom Tracy would not have lines to say, clothes to wear, sets to stand on, scene partners to act with, or a printed-out paycheck from accounting to put in his pocket."

Do you accept the actor's words of contrition?
