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.

There's a real life family feud brewing. But this one isn't over cash and prizes; it's over the mental health of eight innocent children.

On this morning's CBS Early Show, the brother and sister-in-law of Kate Gosselin said Jon & Kate Plus 8 has devolved from its original intent of simply documenting the kids' lives.

"We thought it was very innocent at the time," said Kate's sister-in-law, Jodi. "It quickly turned into more and more demands from Jon and Kate from the network. It turned into 40 episodes in a six-month span."

Jon, Kate, their kids and their extended family of cameramen celebrated the sextuplets' fifth birthday as one, giant, awkward group on this week's season premiere.

Moreover, Jodi and her husband Kevin say there are sometimes cameras in the children's bedrooms and the tykes are "being exploited... it's time for America to see the situation for what it really is."

Based on the ridiculous ratings for Monday night's season premiere, America is definitely tuning in at least.

"Unfortunately, there are no laws protecting children in reality TV shows," Jodi said. "These children are very aware of the cameras in their homes. The home is their workplace. This is not a healthy environment for kids to be raised in."

Holy hotness, Twilight fans:

Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are making out! Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are making out!

Granted, these two stars are simply in character, as they're rehearsing a New Moon scene below in which Edward and Bella get to first base.

Still, that doesn't change two drool-inducing facts:

  1. Robert Pattinson is shirtless;
  2. Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are making out!
New Moon Kissing Alert!

Seen here swapping spit on set, do Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart practice kissing off screen? Behind closed doors? In between the sheets?!?

This is one Pitbull not even Michael Vick would mess with.

During a Colorado concert on April 30, random rapper Pitbull was performing when a fan rushed the stage. But the artist channeled both his inner Derek Jeter and his inner Chris Brown in response:

He remained calm, absolutely pummeled the guy... and then continued to rap like nothing ever happened.

It's an amazing clip. The action picks up around the 50-second mark.

Take this, Lily Allen!

You may be hating on Susan Boyle, but a far more talented singer disagrees with your assessment.

When asked for her opinion on the Britain's Got Talent sensation, Kelly Clarkson told The Associated Press in Hong Kong:

"I think it's awesome. I'm bawling whenever I hear her sing," Clarkson told The Associated Press in Hong Kong, saying Boyle's rendition of "I Dreamed a Dream" from the musical "Les Miserables" sounded beautiful.

Clarkson was overseas to promote her new album, "All I Ever Wanted."

She wasn't asked about the latest American Idol controversy, which questions whether a corporate sponsor played a role in Kris Allen's victory last week.

Since his release from prison, Michael Lohan has often encouraged daughter Lindsay to follow the path of God.

In light of his most recent arrest, though, we can't help but wonder if God would like to request a new mouthpiece.

According to The New York Post, the Lohan patriarch is in trouble with the law again. On March 18, fiancee Erin Muller tried to dump Michael. In response, he allegedly threatened to kill her and then himself.

You don't deserve to die for making a poor dating decision, Erin Muller. But Michael Lohan? Really?!?

The newspaper reports that Lohan was arrested on April 6. He appeared in court yesterday and faces a year behind bars if convicted on the latest charges.

Meanwhile, Michael is due in family court today. He owes $12,000 in child support.

This guy almost makes Dina Lohan seem like a model parent. Only not at all.

** UPDATE: Michael told E! News: "By no means did I threaten to cause harm to Erin or myself.... Erin even told the court that she didn't want to pursue anything. It's all going to be dropped."

Mel Gibson is an actor that has pretended to stand by the strict guidelines of Catholicism, only to have been arrested for drunk driving, accused of hatred against Jews, sued for divorce and publicly shamed by knocking up his mistress, Oksana Grigorieva. All in the last two years.

This much we know.

But what else can we say about Gibson and Grigorieva? People asked a few insiders to provide details on the private life of this couple.

"[Oksana] spent the last nine months locked up in a studio," says her mother, Lyudmila Chernukha, who focused on her daughter's collection of new songs, all of which Oksana wrote, arranged and sang herself.

While his girlfriend churns out hopeful hits, Gibson works on movie projects at his Santa Monica office.

Keep smiling, Mel. That should absolve you from all your sins.

After work time is over, the pair hangs out with Grigorieva's son Alexander, 11.  This quasi family sometimes frequents a Russian restaurant in the area.

"It [seems] very important to Oksana that Mel and her son bond," says a source. "Mel is fun to be around and great with kids."

Mel and Oksana rarely have sleepovers, insiders say. They retire to their separate homes so Grigorieva can get her child off to a local school in the mornings.

As for the impending bundle of joy?

"Oksana is a good mother and she'll make a great mother to Mel's child," says a friend. "She's found the greatest thing in life, someone to take care of her and a father to her children."

We mean no disrespect to Kris Allen or his supporters, but might the reigning American Idol champion have unfairly earned his crown?

According to a report in The New York Times, one of the show's biggest sponsors may have played a vital role in Allen's victory.

AT&T, by its own admission, provided phones for free text-messaging services at parties organized by fans of the Arkansas native.

At a pair of gatherings in Allen's honor - held during, and immediately following, last week's Tuesday night performance show - representatives of AT&T (whose network is the only one that can be used to cast American Idol votes via text message) passed around free phones.

No such efforts were made on behalf of Adam Lambert.

Trophy Holder

No one doubts Kris Allen's talent. But questions are being raised about the fairness of his American Idol victory.

Moreover, The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette states that AT&T employees actually instructed Allen fans on how to send 10 or more text messages at the press of a single button.

We may ned to call shenanigans on this klip from Keeping Up with Kim Kardashians.

First, let's set it up: in late January, Khloe Kardashian announced her break-up with NBA shooting guard Rashad McCants. In a blog entry, Khloe blamed her ex's travel schedule for the relationship's demise, writing: "The last seven months have been great and we will definitely remain close friends."

End of story? Not kwite.

On a recent episode of her family's reality show (filmed months ago), Khloe was komplaining that she hadn't heard from McCants all day. So, with kameras rolling and in need of a good storyline, what's a good sister to do?

Kim offered to break in to Rashad's voicemail.

She played around with the phone, mumbled something about "secret service" and - presto! - her, Khloe and Kourtney were suddenly listening to McCants' automated greeting, followed by a pair of messages from women that implied McCants was shooting jump shots into their baskets... if you know what we mean!

Watch the clip and decide for yourself: is there any chance this scenario was unscripted?!?

Kendra Wilkinson has a great body. It's been on display numerous times over the years for everyone to see.

When asked by People this week about her fitness routine, the former Playboy Bunny talked about her activities with fiance Hank Baskett:

"I'm not really doing anything different. We love to hike and go on bike rides."

Speaking of rides, the reality TV star also gives credit to exercise between the sheets with Baskett. Have they been burning calories in the most enjoyable way possible?

Yes, there's been "a lot of that," Baskett said, prompting us to wonder:

Which will happen first: Hank's Philadelphia Eagles winning the Super Bowl, or this couple releasing a sex tape?

This is all your fault, people.

We really don't wanna keep writing about Jon Gosselin and Kate Gosselin, as these below-average parents seem more interested in attention than their children these days.

K. Goss

But there's clearly interest in this couple, as 9.8 million people tuned in for Monday night's fifth season premiere; that's twice as many viewers as the show's previous high, and more than the number that watched this year's Lost finale. Sheesh!

So, what's the latest on Kate, who complained on the episode that her life was "just so hard," due to the media and pressure on her marriage.

(To which The Baltimore Sun's David Zurawik aptly replied: "Is it really, Kate? Tell that to a family in which the breadwinner has just lost her or his job, you silly, self-absorbed fool.")

According to David Rothermel, Jon's former employer at Style Craft Corp, his wife had him on an allowance; a miniscule one, at that.

"She used to give him only $5 to spend, and if he was out and needed more money, she would give him hell," Rothermel told Us Weekly.

Rothermel - the latest in a long line of friends and relatives to either sell out the Gosselins or go along with their publicity-seeking strategy - also recounted a story in which Kate stormed into the office because Jon's father failed to bring her lunch; while also detailing Kate's lack of gratitude over the donation of a van for the family.

Isn't this fascinating stuff?!?

We beseech you, readers: stop watching this show. For the sake of Jon and Kate's children - as well as our sanity - it's best if this family is kept off TV for awhile.
