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.

Does Robert Pattinson have another hit on his hands with Water for Elephants?

Perhaps at the box office, but not according to a majority of movie critics around the country. Take a look at various excerpts from a sampling of publications that aren't exactly in love with the Twilight star's new film, which opens on April 22...

With Fake Bella

Even nonreaders of the book can figure out what happens next. It's all in the telling. Sara Gruen provided grit and pungent detail. The movie settles for gloss. - Rolling Stone

The script by Richard LaGravenese, who is well-versed in adapting popular fiction such as Bridges of Madison County, lacks the sparkle of his best work. - USA Today

The love triangle takes a familiar shape and the dialogue tends toward the banal. Rarely has running away to join the circus looked so dull. - Boxoffice Magazine

The problem isn't just miscasting or the cheesiness of the material. It's Pattinson's increasingly predictable, dour persona. - Salon dot com

Short-circuits the novel's quirky charms and period atmosphere by its squeamish attitude toward gritty circus life and smothers the drama under James Newton Howard's insufferable wall-to-wall musical soup. - The New York Times

Amy Smart won't need to do any home repairs for the rest of her life.

That's because the actress got engaged this week to HGTV star Carter Oosterhouse. Smart made the announcement, which she deemed "new" and "exciting," at the Earth Lovers in Celebration of Earth Day event in New York on Thursday.

Carter Oosterhouse and Amy Smart

The couple met in November of last year and a pal says they instantly had something in common: affection for the environment.

"He's an eco-carpenter; Amy drives a hybrid and is the greenest girl I know," says the friend. "They are perfect for each other."

The Broadway musical Sister Act premiered last night, as celebrities gathered on the red carpet for a performance based on a movie of the same name.

But one singer stood out from among the other stars lined up for photographers. That's what happens when Adam Lambert rocks a mustache and goatee.

Demi Lovato is continuing to open up about her recent stint in rehab and the basis for her stay there.

First, the singer/actress admitted she's battled an eating disorder for years, later adding that she's cut herself since the age of 11 and is leaving Sonny with a Chance to battle these demons.

Now, the 18-year is opening up again to the public, making an admission to People: "I never found out until I went into treatment that I was bipolar," she tells the magazine. "There were times when I was so manic, I was writing seven songs in one night and I'd be up until 5:30 in the morning."

Last week, Catherine Zeta-Jones sought professional help for the same disease, as Demi Tweeted her support of that star. She says she's taking positive steps in her life to turn things around.

"I feel like I am in control now where my whole life I wasn't in control... What's important for me now is to help others."

In his continuing attempt to mend his family, Billy Ray Cyrus has made clear his one wish for daughter Miley: unadulterated happiness.

"My wish for her is to be happy. To love what she's doing," the famous father tells Parade. "We've always had a slogan in our family: 'If you ain't happy, it ain't working.' You need to love what you're doing. As long as she's happy and loving making music - and I know she loves acting - that's all that matters."

Miley kicks off a tour of Australia later this month and Billy Ray says it's been incredible to watch her journey as an artist.

"I think music is an evolution of what an artist is feeling and going through in their lives. We've always been the fans of singers and songwriters who live what they're singing and sing what they're living."

In her upcoming memoir, "A Helluva High Note," former American Idol judge Kara DioGuardi writes about her successful career in the music business.

But it's DioGuardi's personal past that is getting attention right now, as excerpts of the book have been released and they focus on a pair of traumatic experiences: molestation and date rape.

Kara and Katrina on Stage

Of the former, Kara details the repeated actions taken by a family friend's son when she was 11 years old. He was in his late teens and: "On one particular day, he took me into the back shed of his house and put his hands all over my breasts and vagina. I remember freezing and not knowing what to do."

In the latest issue of Esquire, Evan Rachel Wood confirms what many have suspected for a long time: she's bisexual.

"I was always into very androgynous things. Guys, girls... I'm into androgyny in general," the actress tells the publication, adding this trait attracted her to ex Marilyn Manson."I think one of the things that freaked people out so much is that we looked so different."

On True Blood, Wood's character is also into both genders. Then again, she's also a vampire.

"I'm more of like the guy when it comes to girls. I'm the dominant one," she says of her dating history. "I'm opening the doors, I'm buying dinner. Yeah, I'm romantic."

Does Wood care with whom she ends up? Nope, she just wants to be happy, saying she's "up for anything" with "a nice guy, [or] a nice girl."

Sarah Lane is at it again.

The professional dancer, who served as a body double for Natalie Portman in Black Swan and has said she was on camera for a major of dance scenes, spoke to 20/20 last night and said producers told her to remain quiet about her role.

"They were trying to create this image, this facade, really, that Natalie had done something extraordinary. Something that is pretty much impossible... to become a professional ballerina in a year and half," said Lane. "Even with as hard as she worked, it takes so much more."

He's angered CBS employees, sitcom fans and women's rights group.

But Charlie Sheen is now facing the wrath of an unexpected enemy: The 9/11 Truth Movement.

A representative of that group - which alleges the World Trade Center attacks were initiated by the The United States - says he and his fellow conspiracy theorists are peeved that the actor is using his tour to prattle on about drug use, Denise Richards and other items that aren't related to Sheen's former claims about the buildings' collapse appearing to be a "controlled demolition."

Charlie Sheen in Canada

Mark Dice says Sheen should be "asking hard questions about what happened on 9/11 and the resulting wars... not bragging about smoking crack and sleeping with hookers."

Dice has failed in his attempts to contact the star and adds that he and his group will protest Sheen's upcoming shows if the topic is not addressed.

So congratulations Mark Dice and The 9/11 Truth Movement. You've managed to make Charlie Sheen look sane.

Add another name to the list of folks who have a problem with NeNe Leakes.

Kim Zolciak has been feuding with this reality star for years, Star Jones jumped in during her run on Celebrity Apprentice, and now Hope Dworaczyk has sounded off with her take on the Real Housewife of Atlanta.

"I liked Nene a lot until I had to be her boss," the Playmate told E! News, previewing an episode that airs tonight. "One minute she was crying and opening up about herself and sharing something about the past that's very very personal, and the next minute, she's yelling. I think you can call it unstable."

Does Dworaczyk therefore understand why Star Jones wanted a bodyguard to protect her from Leakes? Yes.

"It was out of control," she said. "I think if I had been yelled at and attacked the way Nene gets in Star's face, I would have wanted a bodyguard, too."
