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.

Forget walking the line. Reese Witherspoon walked down the aisle yesterday at her ranch in Ojai Valley, marrying entertainment agent Jim Toth in front of family members and friends.

Reese Witherspoon, Husband

The ceremony lasted approximately 20 minutes and took place in front of a crowd that included Witherspoon's kids, Renée Zellweger, Salma Hayek, Sean Penn, Scarlett Johansson, Tobey Maguire, Robert Downey Jr. and others.

Witherspoon was introduced to "Here Comes the Bride" and wore a custom-made Monique Lhuillier dress, while her best friend served as Maid of Honor.

The actress and the agent started dating in early 2010 and we wish them a very happy life together.

Serena Williams has been deemed too sexy for television.

A few days after a link to the tennis star's new 2K Sports video game commercial was Tweeted, the company received enough backlash over the spot - which features a scantily-clad Serena taking on a scantily-clad model - to announce it would not air on TV.

"As part of the process for creating marketing campaigns to support our titles, we pursue a variety of creative avenues," 2K Sports wrote in a statement. "This video is not part of the title's final marketing campaign and its distribution was unauthorized."

But it was clearly meant to hit the airways, as Serena Tweeted last week to be on the lookout for "awesomely sexy video."

And, come on, 2K Sports, billboards of Rafael Nadal shirtless are all over Europe.

What do you think? Should the ad have been pulled?

Geraldine , the first woman to ever run for Vice President of the United States, passed away today. She was 75.

A family spokesperson confirms that Ferraro succombed to blood cancer at Massachusetts General Hospital around 10 a.m. In 1984, the three-term congresswoman from Queens joined Walter Mondale's Presidential ticket in an election against Ronald Reagon and George H.W. Bush.

The latter duo won 49 out of 50 states to retain the White House.

Soon after her passing, Mondale paid tribute to his former running mate, remember her "a remarkable woman and a dear human being" and adding:

"She was a pioneer in our country for justice for women and a more open society. She broke a lot of molds and it's a better country for what she did."

Sarah Palin, who followed in Ferraro's Vice Presidential footsteps in 2008, also released a statement on her Facebook page: "She broke one huge barrier and then went on to break many more. May her example of hard work and dedication to America continue to inspire all women."

Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga have lent their name and their words of encouragement to a great cause.

Both artists have recorded videos in which they send prayers and urge fans to donate whatever they can afford to the victims of this month's earthquake and tsunami in Japan.

Bieber will also record a song for a CD whose proceeds will benefit those affected, while Lady Gaga's bracelets have raised $1.5 million for the crises.

We haven't heard the last from Rebecca Black.

Thanks to the help of Ryan Seacrest, on whose radio show Black appeared last Friday, the 13-year old singer has been signed by music manager Debra Baum to her label, DB Entertainment.

Black on the Red Carpet

What kind of music can we expect from Black in the future? The aspiring artist told Entertainment Weekly a few days ago that she wants to record "dance anthem-like stuff."

What about working with famous songwriters? Says the singer: “That’s not a question you should ask me - my parents just throw song ideas at me, and I’ve been listening to a billion different songs.”

It's one of the funniest videos on record. But, to Bret Michaels, what happened in June 2009 is no laughing matter.

The rocker took to the Tony Awards' stage two years ago, sang alongside the Rock of Ages cast - and then knocked himself silly against a piece of scenery. Relive the dangerous/unfortunate/hilarious incident below:

Yesterday, Michaels filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles County Superior Court against Tony Award Productions, CBS and others for unspecified damages, claiming producers failed to instruct him how to properly exit the stage following this performance.

Bret was treated for a broken nose and cut lip at the scene, and the suit says his brain injury months later was due to this mishap. Reads the document:

"One of the most common causes of this type of hemorrhage is head trauma - exactly like the one Michaels suffered at the hands of the Tony Awards."

Move over screaming teenage girls. Uma Thurman is shoving her way into the Robert Pattinson fan club.

The actress, who stars opposite the Twilight Saga hunk in this year's Bel Ami, told MTV about the star: "He's extremely dashing, like an old-world movie star.. he's incredibly concrete in his presence... and is obviously very handsome."

  • Uma Picture
  • People's Choice!

Uma isn't worried about Rob's career once there are no more Edward Cullen stories to tell, either.

"I think, he's going to be a really serious actor. He's a really good actor."

Nicki Minaj is out. Might Nicole Scherzinger be in?

The hip hop star will not judge The X-Factor, but Simon Cowell himself sounds very close to naming the former Pussycat Doll as the second judge on his upcoming singing competition.

"I want her to do it, but we've got to get the deal done and find someone she has chemistry with," Cowell tells TV Guide. "I absolutely adore her. She was fantastic on the U.K. X Factor and I'm hopeful it will happen."

Former Pussycat Doll

Cowell says Cheryl Cole is in the mix and also explains his connection to L.A. Reid, who has been confirmed for the panel.

"I met him approximately fifteen years ago when he'd launched Pink for the first time. He put on a show and got every single person in the room to believe this person was a star. The way he presented her with his passion drew me to him and was a big part of why I chose him to be on the show. A "yes" or "no" from L.A. Reid should really mean something to the contestants."

In the words of Snoop Dogg, who penned the anthem below, it's time for Prince William to "get the club smokin."

Sources confirm that Kate Middleton's future husband has scheduled his stag party for this weekend, with a Royal aide telling Us Weekly the location is secret, but "there will be plenty of booze and some legendary activities."

Prince Harry has helped with the planning, while Middleton has wedding business to attend to.

"Apparently there is still much to organize and sign-off," an insider says. "This is the first week that Kate's started to feel a little nervous. Time is ticking!"

It sure is. The entire world will stop on April 29 when these two walk down the aisle.

Casey Abrams saw his life flash before his eyes last night. His American Idol life, that is.

The bearded singer was surprisingly voted out by fans, following a lackluster Motown cover on Wednesday. Like the finalists before him, Casey was then given the chance to sing one more time in front of the judges in order to convince them to use their one-time "save" and keep him around.

And it worked! In a decision that left Abrams visibly stunned - and audibly cursing at one point, watch the clip below - J. Lo, Randy and Steven told the contestant he was safe.

Two finalists will now be voted off next Thursday, and this summer's Idol Live tour will include 11 singers instead of the customary 10.

Did the judges make the right decision?
