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.

On television, Grizz Chapman is known for uttering a few hilarious 30 Rock quotes as Tracy Jordan's sidekick.

In real life, however, the actor is facing a serious battle.

On tomorrow's The Dr. Oz Show, Chapman will announce he's dealing with severe hypertension and is in dire a kidney transplant. However, the 6'10" star must lose about 75 pounds to become a viable candidate for organ transplant.

"Whatever I can do for the longevity of my life, I'm going to do," he told People.

As you might expect, of course, Grizz is nervou about a kidney transplant.

"I'm afraid to get one because of all the unknown things. You can put a kidney in your body – and somewhere down the line your body might reject it. I'm not saying I don't want to go through with it but it's a little scary. It's a big decision," he said.

We wish Chapman the best of luck. The man has always made us laugh.

** UPDATE: In August 2010, Grizz received his kidney. Great news!

Team Edward or Team Jacob?

It's a question that has divided movie fans, and long-time friends, for months on end.

On this weekend's new edition of Saturday Night Live, Taylor Lautner got into the debate... but you'll never guess the side he took.

Okay, maybe you will, based on our headline and this drawn-out tease. Still, it's worth watching the video below in order to see a very different side of this Twilight Saga star.

Pray with us, THG readers.

Kourtney Kardashian gave birth to a boy this morning, prompting a nationwide need to stop, bow our heads and ask the Man Upstairs to look after this addition to the Kardashian clan. He'll need all the help he can get.

Indeed, Kourtney and shady boyfriend Scott Disick are now the proud new parents of Mason Dash Disick - seriously, his middle name is the same as the family boutique - who arrived in Los Angeles weighin seven pounds and six ounces.

Confirmed Kourt's publicist, at approximately 12:30 p.m. EST:

"Kourtney just delivered a healthy baby boy about an hour ago."

Earlier this week, sisters Khloe and Kim Kardashian said Kourtney thought her water broke because she felt some cold liquid on her leg.

Despite that faux pas, Kim believes her sibling will be a great mother.

"Kourtney didn't even like kids," Kim said recently. "I never thought she'd ever want to have a baby. [But now] I think Kourt's going to be the most amazing mom."

She'll certainly be the most amazing at pimping her child out on the cover of magazines. Look out, Larry Birkhead! You've got competition.

As the calendar gets ready to flip over to 2010, The Hollywood Gossip staff is looking back on the year that was. We're excited to present out 10 finalists for our prestigious, Third Annual Celebrity of the Year award.

These A-listers have given us their best, their worst, their naked pics (sometimes) and their hysterical, off-the-wall antics (often). It's time for THG to pay tribute to their unique greatness.

Last week, we continued the 2009 countdown with Carrie Prejean at number-eight. (No, it wasn't that low because she's Christian.)

Today: Celebrity of the Year finalist #7 … Taylor Swift!

On Top of the World

When the 2009 kicked off, Swift was a modestly successful singer on the rise. Her fan base was mostly comprised of the same tweens that screamed their lungs out for Zac Efron, Robert Pattinson and other celebs that were a notch below mainstream status.

Fast forward 12 months, however, and the numbers speak for themselves:

  • Swift's "Fearless" was the best-selling album of 2009;
  • She was named Artist of the Year by Billboard Magazine;
  • She won four Country Music Awards;
  • She won five BMI Awards;
  • She's been nominated for eight 2010 Grammys.

Aside from her trophy haul, Swift also made headlines this year when she was rudely cut off by Kanye West at the MTV Video Music Awards. She handled the incident with maturity and grace, earning many new fans in the process.

Taylor concluded the best year of her life with a widely-praised Saturday Night Live hosting gig; and by entering into a rumored relationship with Taylor Lautner.

The only downside to 2009 for Swift? She's guaranteed that 2010 will be a let down in comparison!

For her 21st birthday, Vanessa Hudgens will not be receiving a digital camera from The Hollywood Gossip.

However, our staff has chipped in and purchased many layers of clothing for the young star. After all, we wanna see her succeed on the big screen... just not as an adult film actress!

The rising star celebrates a milestone today, finally turning the legal drinking age. We'd imagine she raises a flute of champagne or two with dreamy boyfriend Zac Efron.

What do you get a young woman that has a successful career and a hunk on her arm? Aside from advice to never pose naked again, we can only come up with birthday wishes from an adoring public. Send them in today!

In honor of Hudgie Bear, we also present the following photo tribute. Click on each pic for a larger image...

Because ABC is so afraid of Adam Lambert, the network pre-taped his appearance on The View last week.

The singer jokingly referred to this fact when he sat down with Barbara Walters and company, warning viewers to shield their children from the TV sets.

When asked by the host if he's hurt by ABC's constant cancellations and censorship, Lambert replied:

"I'm surprised. I'm like, 'Really. Is it that big of a deal?'"

We couldn't agree more. If Elisabeth Hasselbeck can handle sitting next to this supposedly toxic influence, we're pretty sure everyone else can take a deep breath and relax. Check out his View interview below:

Lambert also appeared at Z100's Jingle Ball in NYC on Friday night. Click on the photos of him backstage at the event for larger images:

Poor Fergie.

She's only in the news these days for two reasons:

  1. Her husband's alleged affair with a stripper;
  2. Her penchant for donning the same outfits as other celebrities.

There's nothing new to report regarding the first controversy; but someone has copied Fergie's fashion taste once again.

This time the culprit is Gwyneth Paltrow, a former A-list star that has seemingly fallen off the gossip map. Can she defeat Fergie in the following face-off and steal back the spotlight? You tell us...

Gwyneth Paltrow vs. Fergie

Who wears this dress better?

She's a gorgeous, talented actress that is married to a gorgeous, A-lister of a husband.

Still, Jennfer Garner has managed to remain relatively quiet over the last couple years, choosing to only appear in the occasional film and to raise daughter Violet like a regular mother.

But the beauty came out of hiding for a recent photo shoot with W, speaking to the magazine about husband Ben Affleck, fashion and her penchant for breeding. She's one cool anti-diva...

On starting a family: “We were together for a year, and we just started breeding. We were like, ‘Let’s have a baby!’ And eight days later…”

On traveling with Affleck: “I miss my girlfriends! That’s the hardest thing about being on location when it’s not for your own project... I can live with Ben working crazy hours. But I can’t live without girlfriends… It’s fine if he’s not there; I just need someone to bitch about it to.”

On a typical day: "[It consits of] getting the kids up and fed, getting one to school, getting the other down for a nap, going to the grocery store, picking one up from school, getting the other one down for another nap, cooking dinner. I live my life at these two extremes. I’m either a full-time stay-at-home mom or a full-time actress.”

She may be gone from Dancing with the Stars, but Julianne Hough is still very much in the news.

To the delight of men around the world.

The gorgeous country singer will star in an upcoming remake of Footloose and is also releasing a new album. She spoke on both in a new interview, excerpts from which are below...

On Footloose: “We start shooting in March. The first film was so great, I think it was at a time where the economy was down then, and the troops were out, and I feel like we’re in a very similar situation now. I feel like everybody wants that back, that fun energy that musical movies have. Everybody loves the movie, and I’m really excited about it."

On filming and singing with Christina Aguilera: “She knows what she wants, and she’s phenomenal at everything she does... Her voice is so phenomenal, and hearing her sing these new songs is just amazing.”

On her new album: "I know exactly what I want and I’m not doubting myself. And I’ve got a little more confidence. It’s more mature and a little more edgy - not necessarily rock ‘n’ roll edgy, but maturity-wise. Being a dancer, there’s a lot more grooves in my songs but very real, sincere lyrics."

Hough didn't say if she'd ever return to the DWTS floor, but as long as she's posing for photos, we're pretty much happy.

Damn you, Taylor Lautner.

It's not enough for this young actor to possess charisma, charm and a six-pack on which one could slice a finger; he has to be really funny, as well!

The Twilight Saga star hosted Saturday Night Live this weekend and opened the show with a monologue that defended the honor of rumored girlfriend Taylor Swift.

Lautner re-renacted her incident at the Video Music Awards with Kanye West, showing off some incredible martial arts moves and taking the fight to Kanye. He also hinted at a relationship with an unusual looking Reba McEntire.

Watch the hilarity after the jump.
