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.

A new twist has been added to the death of Russell Armstrong.

TMZ confirms that Alan Schram, a business associate and friend of the late Real Housewives of Beverly Hills co-star, also killed himself last week, just 24 hours after Russell did the same. Schram's body, with a self-inflicted gunshot to the head, was found on August 16, outside of his parked car on Mulholland Drive.

Schram was the managing partner of a Los-Angeles based hedgefund and was part of Tiger 21, an organization of wealthy individuals who discussed investments together. Russell was also reportedly a member of this club.

The reasons behind Armstrong's suicide will never be fully understood, but the man definitely had money problems. He was facing a $1.5 million lawsuit at the time of his death and was laid to rest on Wednesday.

Seemingly, it would be very difficult to move on from Derek Jeter. But has Minka Kelly already done so?

It was announced this week that the shortstop and the actress have ended their three-year relationship and, already, rumors are surfacing that Kelly has cozied up to a co-star.

"We have seen Minka and Ramon talking in his trailer way after hours, and often late into the night," a source tells People of Kelly and Charlie's Angels actor Ramon Rodriguez "They have been together long after they need to be for the show."

Rodriguez portrays John Bosley on the upcoming ABC remake of this classic series. He's the only man in the cast, which is why another insider says there's nothing at all to his interactions with Kelly:

"They're just friends. Ramon is basically the only guy on set, so of course they all hang out with him."

Jeter, however, may be feeling the affects of this split. He went 1-4 with a strikeout last night in the Orioles 12-5 mauling of the Yankees.

Halle Berry won a battle in court today with ex Gabriel Aubry. But, as this custody battle rages on, it's clear who the real loser will be: three-year old Nahla.

Sunny Day Out

Sources tell TMZ the former couple was in front of a judge because Berry will be leaving to film a movie in Europe and there was an issue over which parent gets to spend time with his/her daughter when Halle is working.

Berry won this round, meaning Nahla will be accompanying her mom overseas.

The issue is unrelated to a larger problem Berry has brought up to the court, however. She alleges that Aubry has imperiled the safety of their child. Many more hearings will unfortunately take place involving the family.

Perhaps this explains why Demi Lovato has battled so many personal demons...

In an interview with E! News last night, the 19-year old singer was asked about that network's reason for existence: Kim Kardashian. She replied:""She's been a friend of mine for a little bit and she's like a big sister to me."

Kim introduced Demi at the Do Something Awards earlier this month, a performance by Lovato you can view HERE.

Elsewhere, Lovato touched on her constant battle and how she manages to maintain mental health these days.

"I surround myself with people that are beneficial in my recovery and my recovery is still a daily battle and I definitely hang out with people that support me in making the right decisions," Lovato said. "I'm a happier and healthier person today because of the choices I've made."

We wish her the best of luck with all those choices. We just recommend a new role model.

It's on a very different level than the tragedy of Russell Armstrong's suicide on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but another installment in this Bravo franchise is facing yet another scandal.

Matt Holmes - the father of Ashlee Holmes and former lover of Jacqueline Laurita (pictured) - has been arrested in Texas for arson, insurance fraud and money laundering. He and his wife, Jodi Sue, were booked for a fire that destroyed their home in March.

According to Radar Online, a witness has come forward and said Matt started the fire in order to collect on a $429,000 insurance policy. The couple then allegedly used this cash to purchase items such as a diamond ring.

Local authorities are working with the FBI on the case, but Ashlee has already taken to Twitter to defend her father:

“FYI- my parents have NOT been indicted..this whole thing was started by a disgruntled employee..they are INNOCENT &that’s all i have to say.”

The Twilight Saga won't actually come to an end until November 2012. But Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner are already expanding their resumes beyond Edward Cullen and Jacob Black, respectively.

Earlier today, we posted photo of Rob getting it on with various women in Bel Ami. Now, we have a behind-the-scenes look at Lautner in Abduction, which will find his character on the run after discovering his face on a missing persons website.

The film comes out on September 23 and features Taylor mostly during his own stunts, as seen below. Says co-star Jason Isaacs: “He could take the entire crew with his hands tied behind his back.”
