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.

Simon Cowell is not a fan of Marcus Canty. That was made clear early in the week when The X Factor judge dismissed any notion that Canty had a shot at winning this year's $5 million grand prize.

Josh Krajcik brought Paula Abdul to tears on The X Factor last night. Granted, this is about as difficult as getting Lindsay Lohan to have a drink. But still.

Might the manipulative, large-breasted roof soon get blown off DivorceGate?

In the latest issue of Life & Style, William Humphries - the father of Kris Humphries and the very brief father-in-law of Kim Kardashian - says he'd "love to write a book" about the ordeal Kim and her family put his son through.

Thomas Brodnicki is one seriously effed up individual. But at least he seems aware of that fact.

The stalker who has repeatedly threatened the life of Selena Gomez - at one point telling an officer he had "fifty conversations with God about killing Gomez" - actually told a judge today to issue a permanent restraining order against him.
