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.

As much as any other American Idol fan displeased with this season's outcome, we thought Adam Lambert should have been crowned champion.

But our effusive praise of the unique singer was never meant to disparage winner Kris Allen.

In fact, ever since his victory, Allen has been nothing short of grateful, humble and extremely appealing every time we hear him speak.

First, upon winning, Kris immediately said Lambert deserved the crown. Now, take a look at the American Idol during an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

How can anyone not adore this laid back Arkansas native?!?

In the least surprising piece of entertainment news this month, Jon and Kate Gosselin have started seeing a marriage counselor.

As cheating rumors - and sex tape rumors and infidelity contract rumors - swirled around the couple, Kate initially refused to seek counseling.

Peace Out Kate

However, with the future of her TLC show (and related fame) on the line, she's changed her mind.

"It's make-or-break time for Jon and Kate, and counseling may be the only hope they have to repair their shattered marriage," a source told The National Enquirer. "The big question is whether they'll allow cameras into their therapy sessions. TLC would want to film at least portions of the sessions, but obviously Jon and Kate would have to agree."

Jon and Kate Gosselin almost seem like normal, loving parents in this photo.

Meanwhile, the attention-loving monster wants to wring two more seasons out of Jon & Kate Plus 8, others say.

"Kate wants a future in showbiz, and airing their counseling sessions will shoot the show's ratings through the roof," said an insider.

In her latest MySpace blog entry, is Selena Gomez talking Taylena?

Amidst rumors that the young actress is dating Taylor Lautner, Gomez just posted a few thoughts about how opinions can change as one gets older.

Selena Gomez, Mother

"I remember when i was 12 telling my friends i would never ever wear dresses because i thought they were too prissy. Now I own more floral dresses than pants," Gomez writes. "Or how i hated mustard and gagged at the sight of it, now I will not touch a hotdog without it."

Okay, okay, get to the good stuff, Selena!

"I also said that I would never fall in love until i was much older to really understand the word....."

Wow. This implies that Gomez isn't merely dating the Twilight star. She's totally in love with him! Taylena 4 eva!!!

As they each film movies in Vancouver, Taylor Lautner and Selena Gomez have been seen, getting quite cozy, together.

With apologies to Andrew Firestone, Jason Mesnick and whatever random, hot dude ABC comes up with next, George Clooney is the true bachelor.

This hunky actor takes full advantage of his single status, dating whichever beautiful cocktail waitress comes his way, treating her well and then moving on when the fun is over.

A year after Clooney split from Sarah Larson, the star has reportedly hooked up with Miami-based waitress Lucy Wolvert, an aspiring model. Sources say the couple has been dating in secret for weeks, but Wolvert can no longer keep the relationship to herself.

"Her crush may have gotten the best of her. George asked Lucy to be discreet, but she's told friends and they've started talking," an insider told Us Weekly.

Wolvert previously dated Landon Lueck from The Real World: Philadelphia. It's safe to say Clooney is an upgrade.

Clay Aiken won't be going on tour with Adam Lambert any time soon.

In fact, he may not even subscribe to Lambert's Twitter account!

When asked about the polarizing American Idol runner-up, Aiken (who is also gay and who also finished second during season three of the series) replied:

I only turn the show on once a season, and only to see what the set looks like each year. This year, I happened to turn it during the minute that Adam Lambert was singing “Ring of Fire” and, at that moment, thought my ears would bleed. Contrived, awful, and slightly frightening!

I wasn’t really a fan and found myself surprised whenever folks told me that they liked him. Granted, I never saw another performance (and many folks who I trust said that he was great) but I can’t imagine I would have enjoyed it. Just not my cup of tea at all. To each his own.

Are you on Team Clay or Team Lambert?

It was an afternoon of young, talented beauty at this week's CW upfront presentations.

Each spring, networks invite advertisers to an event that serves as the official launching party for its fall schedule. This is where deals are made and new shows are announced.

For The CW, a channel that aims to attract a less mature audience, it was the perfect time to showcase its array of up-and-coming stars.

Or Ashlee Simpson, who somehow has a role on the remade Melrose Place. Here's a shot of Mrs. Pete Wentz at the upfront ceremony:

Upfront and Center

Due to the success of Gossip Girl and 90210, The CW is more interested than ever in focusing on teenage soap operas.

Aside from the aforementioned remake of Melrose Place, look for The Beautiful Life on the network's fall schedule. It stars Mischa Barton and Corbin Bleu.

  • Beautiful Life Actor
  • A Tasty Chacer
  • So Lively

This weekend marks the unofficial start of summer. You know what that means, right?

Kim Kardashian can garner headlines by simply talking about wearing a bathing suit!

Holding All Her Kards

At an opening party for Dash, her new Miami boutique with sisters Khloe and Kourtney, Kim was asked by People about if her body was ready to be seen in a bikini.

"I feel great. I am ready for the bikini body," she said. "I am eating well and I go to the gym every day and I already see a difference."

Here's a preview of what fans can look forward to this summer from Kardashian. Click on the following pictures for larger images of this beauty in swimwear...

Fans and celebrities are still coming to grips with the fact that Adam Lambert is not the American Idol.

While Kris Allen is clearly an impressive talent, it's hard for critics not to wonder about the basis for his victory; namely, did it have anything to do with Lambert's presumed homosexuality?

American Idol Top 13

Here's a sampling of ways various critics have tackled that issue/asked that question:

  • The Chicago Tribune: "It's difficult not to wonder if Lambert's sexuality played a role in Allen's victory... If Lambert's popularity on Idol was any indication of how tolerant and accepting America has become, his loss may indicate there's still further to go."
  • Professional poker player Annie Duke: "I seriously think Adam lost just because he is gay. Bummed. Bummed. Bummed."
  • Examiner.com: "Adam was too gay for America."

What do you think of these arguments? Weigh in below...

Did Adam Lambert's sexual orientation cost him the American Idol crown?

According to reports, Cassidy is a male rapper.

He may also be a dead man, as random website Gyant Unplugged claims he's to blame for the demise of the relationship between Kanye West and Amber Rose.

Allegedly, with Kanye at work on Rihanna and Jay-Z’s albums in Hawaii, Cassidy has been taking a long whiff of West's Rose... if you know what we mean!

As Gyant Unplugged puts it: Word got back to Ye’ and he cancelled that chick I-M-M-E-D-I-A-T-E-L-Y!

Cassidy is denying any romantic involvement with Rose. But is that guy really to be trusted?!?

No one has fought this hard for Paula Abdul since the cartoon cat in the video for "Opposites Attract."

In an interview with Radar Online, Janice Thibodeaux - the nut job that attacked Simon Cowell's ex-girlfriend, Terri Seymour, on Monday night - provided a motive for her choke job:

“I wasn’t cool with Simon Cowell choking Paula Abdul on the show last week and with her crying-out ‘help’ as he did so,” Thibodeaux said.  “Nobody said anything about that so I wanted to confront him about it because that is not appropriate behavior, is it?”

Thibodeaux wasn't done fitting herself for a straight jacket explaining what happened:

“She was taking some photographs with her camera and I knew she was his girlfriend so I went up to her to tell her how I felt. We started arguing and then I put my hands around her neck and started choking her just like Simon had done with Paula. Then, I walked away and I was tackled by the police, but I don’t regret what I did because of what Simon did to Paula, nobody seemed to care about that.”

To paraphrase Britney Spears in "Womanizer:" You want crazy, folks? Janice Thibodeaux has got your crazy!
