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.

Well, this makes a lot more sense.

When word first spread last week that Gabriel Aubrey dumped Halle Berry, experts (i.e. the THG staff, our interns and the pizza guy) questioned the model's sanity. Did he really think he'd find a better looking girfriend?!?

Now, though, an insider close to the situation says the break-up took place awhile ago - and Berry was the driving force behind it.

"She kicked him out months ago because he wasn't able to pull his weight in the relationship and she wanted to move on," a source told People. "They’re very amicable in healthy ways because of their child. Her main concern is for the health and happiness of her daughter."

Hi, Photographer

A rep for the Academy Award winner, meanwhile, confirms that she and Aubry "have been split for some time, but remain friends and committed parents to their daughter."

Aubry himself has released a statement over the weekend saying he's sad about the break-up, but recognizing Halle as a "special and beautiful" person. She then went out and proved that on Saturday, taking part in the Revlon Run/Walk for Women.

Check out photos of Berry at the event, above and below:

Dear Kourtney Kardashian: We at THG have constructed a celebrity fashion store. You may want to check it out.

We make this suggestion because the reality star has been involved in as many Face-Offs as anyone in Hollywood. She's taken on Rihanna, Shenae Grimes and her own sister multiple times.

Heck, she even dressed like Aubrey O'Day once.

In other words, Kourtney needs a new wardrobe. We hope she follows the link above and shops for one.

Most recently, Kardashian donned the same Diane von Furstenberg dress as Jennifer Lopez stepped out in last year. You know how this works by now: study the images below and then sound off in our poll...

J. Lo. vs Kourtney

Who looks better in this dress?

As the recently-chosen director of Breaking Dawn, Bill Condon has a message for fans: The movie is in good hands!

Seriously, the Oscar winner behind Dreamgirls really does have this message. He posted it on Facebook over the weekend:

Greetings Twihards, Twifans, Twilight Moms, Team Edward, Team Jacob and Team Switzerland,

I just want to say hello to all of you and let you know that I’m stoked to be getting underway on the adventure of making BREAKING DAWN. As you’ve probably heard, I’ve been given a very warm welcome by Stephenie and Team Summit – who are super-focused, as you know, on getting these movies right.

I’ve read BREAKING DAWN twice, rewatched Catherine’s and Chris’s movies 2-3 times each, have all four CDs playing in my car, and have Catherine’s notebook, Mark Cotta Vaz’s companion books, and even Volume 1 of the graphic novel here on my desk – a corner of my office is starting to look like Hot Topic. I realize that this barely qualifies me for ‘newborn’ status in the universe you’ve been living inside for a few years now, but a guy’s gotta start somewhere.

I’m a huge admirer of the already-iconic Kristen, Robert, and Taylor, and wanted to be the one to work with them as they face the challenges of bringing your beloved characters to the end of their journeys. Really, what could be more fun than that?

Sounds like Condon understands the challenges ahaead of him and recognizes the popularity of the world he has just agreed to take on. Let's welcome him to the franchise, shall we?

Taylor Swift is awesome - and THG isn't the only company that thinks so.

The singer has been named the new spokesperson for CoverGirl. She joins the ranks of other stars that have represented the brand, such as Drew Barrymore, Rihanna, Queen Latifah and Ellen DeGeneres.

While Swift's ads for a line of luxury cosmetics won’t debut until January 2011, here's a sneak peek at her in the new role:

Says CoverGirl General Manager Vince Hudson:

"Taylor is beautiful, inspiration with an effortless-chic style, making her the perfect person to represent a new, luxurious collection of products debuting on Cover Girl next year."

We can't argue with any of that. Take a look at the singer on tour below:

When Ricky Martin and Adam Lambert came out of the closet, the entertainment world was proud, but not exactly shocked.

According to TMZ, though, Chely Wright is ready to make a surprising announcement: she's gay.

People magazine first floated the rumor that a significant star would reveal her homosexuality in the near future, and TMZ has confirmed it's Wright. The country singer, whose "Single White Female" hit number-one in 1999, has an autobiography and a new CD coming out this week.

We're always happy when a celebrity (or a human being in general) is confident and secure enough to make such an admission publicly - but it would help her cause if she weren't promoting an album at the same time.

If this report is accurate, Wright will be the first major country singer to go public with her sexual orientation. It's a big risk, considering the conservative demographic of country music fans.

We wish her the best of luck.

Following reports from multiple media outlets on Friday, Gabriel Aubry has confirmed the news: he and Halle Berry are no longer together.

"I am sad to say that Halle and I have decided together to separate at this time," Aubry said in a statement. "She is, and will forever be one of the most special and beautiful people that I have ever known, and I am certain that we will continue to have only love and respect for one another."

That's a fair, mature thing to say. We just have one question in response: What the heck is wrong with you, Gabriel Aubry?!?

Berry and Aubry  first met at a 2006 Versace photo shoot. They are the parents of two-year old daughter Nahla and are working on a custody arrangement for her.

"We have been blessed with the most amazing daughter in the world," Aubry added. "Her happiness and well-being are the most important thing for both of us. Please respect our privacy during this very difficult time."

On Friday, meanwhile, Berry saw a performance of the Broadway play Fences, starring Denzel Washington. A friend describes the actress as being in "good spirits."

While President Barack Obama deals with rumors of an affair with Vera Baker, he got to take the night off from scandals, debates and politics in general at yesterday' White House Correspondents' Dinner.

The annual event brings celebrities together with politicians, as a comedian is chosen to host the evening and the President always takes the stage to poke fun at himself and his opponents.

President George W. Bush caused controversy in the past by actually making fun of the fact that he and his administration never found weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. We went to war for misguided, false reasons! Hilarious!

Last night, though, Obama kept his routine mostly safe, but altogether hilarious. First, he yanked MC Jay Leno's chain: "I'm glad that I'm speaking first because we've all seen what happens when somebody takes the timeslot after Leno's."

He then moved on to John McCain," who “recently claimed he had never identified himself as a maverick," said the President. "And we all know what happens in Arizona when you don't have ID.”

Leno, of course, was his typical lame, unfunny self. He delivered such gems as referring to Michelle Obama's anti-obesity campaign as "Leave no child with a bigger behind."

Spotted on the red carpet were such stars as Kim Kardashian and Justin Bieber (who posed together! yikes!), Jessica Simpson (who said she really admires Michelle Obama as "a powerful woman), Jessica Alba, the Jonas Brothers and more.

Quipped Bill Maher: "It's great to mingle with America's real intellectual heavyweights. I saw the Jonas Brothers, Justin Bieber, Jessica Simpson, Ryan Seacrest – I can't wait to talk politics."

Based on Rock of Love, we already knew that Bret Michaels possessed a sheer will to get with groupies on his tour bus.

But now we know there's one thing this rock star cares about even more: living.

As his condition continues to improve, Michaels' neurosurgeon at Barrow Neurological Institute at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center in Phoenix is marveling at Bret's recovery and attitude.

"There is no doubt that Mr. Michaels' condition is serious," Dr. Zabramski said this week, following the singer's subarachnoid hemorrhage on April 22. "Bret's sheer will to live and fully recover is undeniable. He has an unbelievable fight in him and told me what kept him alive at the moment of the hemorrhage was that he did not want his family to wake up and see him lying unconscious in the middle of the floor."

Michaels has two daughters, Raine and Jorja, ages nine and four.

He's also a diabetic who has suffered through numerous "roadblocks," Zabramski said, including "hyponatremia, severe cranial and back pain suffered from blood drainage." His patient in stable condition, the doctor added:

"It was a combination of Bret's fight to stay conscious during the hemorrhage and get to the emergency room, and the immediate medical attention provided by our staff at Barrow that enabled us to stabilize his condition.”

The team at Barrow will hold press conference on Tuesday, in which surgeons will update Michaels' progress even more.

If you're a legal immigrant in Arizona, walking down the street with your child, you may now get stopped by the police solely based on the color of your skin.

While it seems incomprehensible that such a law could be passed in the United States, it's a sad fact. It's also one that Shakira spoke out against yesterday and then actually headed down to Phoenix to discuss in person with the mayor and other locals.

Turns out, she isn't the only celebrity (or American with a conscience) to object to this law. At last night's Billboard Latin Music Awards, Ricky Martin said the ruling "makes no sense" and then went off on inequality in general:

"You are not alone. We are with you. Put a stop to discrimination. Put a stop to hate. Put a stop to racism... Long live love, long live peace."

The singer himself came out of the (obvious) closet last month.

A few others on hand also chimed in on the issue.

Said Latin Artist of the Year winner, Larry Hernandez: "It's regrettable that they are discriminating against for the simple fact of looking Latino. It's not fair. We have to say no to that law."

Meanwhile, at a Phoenix press conference, Arizona native Linda Ronstadt stated: "Mexican-Americans are not going to take this lying down."

It's a contentious issue, one many Americans don't understand. Sound off with your thoughts now!
