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.

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!

While readers debate whether or not they wanna see Bethenny Frankel nude, here's another question focused on The Real Housewife of New York City:

Do you wanna see her on Dancing on the Stars?

When asked if she'd be up for that competition, Frankel told E! News:

"It looks like a good challenge, so yes - yes, I would definitely do it."

But would she be encouraged, or discouraged, if Bethenny found herself up against show rival Kelly Bensimon on the DWTS floor?

"I love to dance and I think it would be so amazing," Kelly said. "It's out of the box for me, but I think it would be really fun."

Meanwhile, Aubrey O’Day seems to think she'd be as good at dancing as she is at posing naked:

"I hope they ask me to do it [because] I'll win it if I do it."

Kris Allen is your new American Idol.

Left speechless when Ryan Seacrest initially asked him how it felt, Allen continued to express utter consternation backstage.

"I felt shocked almost every week that I made it, and to be the American Idol, I’m completely shocked."

The champion also had nothing but kind words for fellow finalist Adam Lambert: "I feel like he deserves this just as much as I do. He’s an amazing performer, gifted guy and really just an amazing guy. It was fun doing this with him."

Where will Kris go from here, in terms of making an album?

"I think it’s pretty obvious that I’ve done a lot of the singer-songwriter, pop-rock kind of thing and that’s something I want to do."

Do you think Kris Allen is a worthy champion?

 

Lambert, meanwhile, isn't about to shed any tears over his second place finish.

"I felt so good. I got to sing with Queen and KISS!" he told OK!, reflecting on the two-hour finale. "First or second, it doesn’t matter to me; I got to sing with two great, heroic rock bands."

Photos from the New Moon set revealed Robert Pattinson and company hard at work.

Now, Life & Style is revealing secrets from the upcoming film's script.

Think you're familiar with the story of Edward and Bella in this follow-up to Twilight? Think again. On key plot points, the big screen adaption will differ greatly from the book. For example...

  • In the novel, Edward never actually appears; he's simply a voice in Bella's head. But, come on, the movie had to showcase Pattinson on screen.

Look for Edward to appear like an apparition in New Moon, a development that created concern for the actor: "I really wanted it to be a complete absence. It’s easier to give it more power at the end if I’m completely absent."

  • The movie will depict an action-filled scene that doesn't take place in the book, as Laurent fights back against the werewolves that destroy him in the original story.
  • Finally, in Stephenie Meyer's adventure, Edward says he'll turn Bella into a vampire only if they wed. In the film, however, he offers a different ultimatum. (You don't really wanna know every detail ahead of time, do you?!?)

What do you think of these changes, New Moon readers? Good? Bad? Or do you not care as long as you can stare at Robert Pattinson for two hours?

We're just over a month away from the most-publicized marriage of the summer between a former Playmate and a current NFL wide receiver.

On June 27, Kendra Wilkinson will walk down the aisle with Hank Baskett. The ceremony will take place at the Playboy Mansion.

Hendra Picture

In a new interview with E! News, Kendra - who is filming a reality show about the wedding planning, naturally - cleared up rumors that she has a problem with Hugh Hefner's replacement girlfriends, Crystal Harris and twins Karissa and Kristina Shannon. In fact, all three are on the guest list.

"They're cool," Kendra said. "I like them."

She also loves babies. Her and Hank "plan on having them very soon. We want to be young parents and be able to chase around our kids and run and coach our kids."

As for the gender of each child?

"We don't really care about that," she said. "We'll love whatever comes out of me."

Ironic. Hef used to tell Kendra the same thing in bed.

According to a story in The National Enquirer, Lindsay Lohan has proposed to Samantha Ronson and is set to convert to Judaism in order to make the union work.

In related news, Carrie Prejean just had a heart attack.

White Powder

Sources tell the unreliable newspaper that Ronson's Jewish family wasn't happy when Lindsay asked for Samantha's hand in marriage; in response, Lohan has offered to convert from Catholicism.

And in response to that, Catholics everywhere cried: good riddance!

"Lindsay says Sam's promised she'll persuade her family to accept this, and they won't wait to see if California changes their gay marriage legislation, but will travel to one of the states where it is legal to say their I do's," an insider told the tabloid.

We know it's hard to believe everything/anything The National Enquirer writes, but remember: this is the same publication that broke the Rielle Hunter and Oksana Grigorieva pregnancy stories!

Congratulations, Kate Gosselin! You've completed the rite of passage that any spoiled celebrity must take on:

Complaining to a celebrity gossip tabloid about all the celebrity gossip coverage you're receiving. Dina Lohan must be proud.

As new stories come out everyday surrounding Kate and husband Jon - from infidelity to marriage contracts - Gosselin can relate to other scandalous celebrities.

"Before this, I'd never stood on line at the grocery store, looked at the people on the cover of magazines, and thought about what they're going through," she told People. "I'd never thought, 'Oh my god, this is totally doing them in.' But now, I understand what they live with: Everywhere you go you're being stalked, you're being followed – it's hell, on the cover of a magazine."

Once again, it's worth noting: Kate said this to a magazine!

Wait... what? I have kids at home? Okay, let me sign a few hundred more books first.

Regarding the lengths to which reporters will go to cover her often-televised family, Gosselin said:

"It's so scary. It's like one of those movies where you have to change your identity and go underground. I've been saying, 'Let's find a country where our show doesn't air, and let's just go there until this all dies.' I have to laugh about this, or else I'll cry. It's a matter of, when will they stop?"

Perhaps when you stop giving them material to write about, you attention-seeking moron.

Are Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart really an item?

While the latest issue of Life & Style claims on its cover that the relationship is "on," let's examine the flimsy evidence this gossip tabloid offers:

Selena in Silver
  • Stewart met Pattinson's parents during the actor's 23rd birthday party last week;
  • According to Twilight co-star Elizabeth Reaser: "Kristen and Rob have amazing chemistry."
  • Said Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke: "It's intense when you do such an intense project. Robert and Kristen are interested in each other, like a fascination."

If "fascination" and "interest" are all it takes to be dating someone, then our entire staff would be going steady with Megan Fox!

As for another rumored pairing that every tween in America is excited over, the magazine offers slightly better support that Taylor Lautner and Selena Gomez are a couple.

On May 4, the duo ate together at a restaurant in Vancouver. According to a witness:

"Taylor walked Selena back to her hotel afterward. When she didn't think anyone was around, she wrapped her arms around his neck and gave him a big kiss!"

The next day, Lautner and Gomez allegedly ate at a Japanese restaurant. As the cuties dined on sushi and drank iced tea, an anonymous onlooker heard Taylor say to Selena: "You smell good - I always smell you. I smelled you on my pillow this morning."

Whoa, TMMUI, Life & Style! Too Much Made Up Information, indeed!
