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.

Casey Johnson may have been a member of the ultra wealthy Johnson & Johnson family when she died this year, but her bank account did not represent a great fortune.

According to legal documents unearthed by TMZ, the troubled heiress passed away with approximately $75,000 in assets and no will.

Casey's father, the owner of the New York Jets, is asking the court to appoint him Special Administrator of his daughter's estate.

"It is necessary for him to take possession of all of the assets... as quickly as possible to preserve her estate from damage, waste, injury and publicity," reads the document in question.

Meanwhile, Casey's mom, Nancy Sale Frey Johnson, has custody of Casey's daughter, Ava. She'll likely begin legal procedures to adopt the tyke soon, a fact that won't sit well with Tila Tequila.

Then again, Tila Tequila might be dead. She hasn't Tweeted anything in days. Please be on the lookout for a crazy women wearing a fake pregnancy stomach.

In Remember Me, Robert Pattinson plays Tyler. He's a straight shooter, someone that's confident in his ability to attract the opposite sex.

Considering his appearance, one would assume Pattinson possesses this same trait in real life. But one would be mistaken.

"When it comes to the opposite sex, I'm not as fully confident as [Tyler," the actor tells Parade in its latest issue. "I don't even remember the last time I asked someone out on a date... I'm much more self-conscious and not wanting to fail. So I tend to hold back."

That may have something to do with the fact that he doesn't need to, of course. Rob is dating Kristen Stewart.

As for Robert's ultimate goal? He touched on that, and a few other topics, in the magazine interview:

On his personal ambition: You keep trying to make your name stand for something other than just like meaningless celebrity. It's a difficult battle, but I think people like Johnny Depp have done that. He's not judged by his public image, it's just his acting that counts. To get to that place takes a lot of discipline and a lot of hiding.

On box office pressure: People always used to ask me about typecasting and I never had to really worry about it. You think people will judge you by your work. But the truth is, it's about whether the film you're in makes money or not.

On his past: I got beaten up by a lot of people when I was younger. I was a bit of an idiot, but I always thought the assaults were unprovoked. It was after I first started acting and I liked to behave like an actor, or how I thought an actor was supposed to be, and that apparently provoked a lot of people into hitting me.

We love Adam Lambert and we admire the enthusiasm and loyalty of his fans.

But we got into a bit of a stand-off with them last month when THG ran a story that said Lambert "ripped" Susan Boyle, referring to her her album as "terrible" and her rendition of "Wild Horses" as laughable.

Supporters of this singer jumped down our throat for misquoting the superstar, claiming we were going after Google hits (via our harsh word choice) instead of the truth. This critique prompted us to pen an editorial in which we told Adam fans to "chill out."

Since then, we've made up... right, Lambert lovers? But we still feel the need to defend our professional integrity and state: Adam really doesn't like Boyle's work. In a new interview with The Herald Sun, he was asked about his comment and said:

"It came across a bit harsher than how it actually went down. But I'm not a fan of the record, it wasn't a lie."

Let's all move on now. Adam has. He talked about the perception of American Idol in the same interview:

"[People think] you come off the show and all of a sudden you are put in this machine and puppeted into this product. That's not my experience at all.

"I'm a pretty outspoken, upfront, forward type of person, and I have opinions about what I want to be as an artist. I told them I want to be glam, be pop, be rock, I want to be everything, blend it all together and have a great time doing it. Be theatrical and be out there."

That's certainly who Lambert is - and we adore him for remaining true to himself.

Mark your calendars, Betty White supporters:

Following a Facebook campaign that resulted in over 350,000 signatures, fans have gotten their wish: the former Golden Girls star will host NBC's Saturday Night Live on May 8.

But the 88-year old won't take to the stage alone. In honor of Mother's Day, the edition will reunite six former female cast members as co-hosts: Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Molly Shannon, Maya Rudolph, Ana Gasteyer and Rachel Dratch.

The Facebook campaign kicked off after White appeared in a Super Bowl commercial for Snickers, which SNL creator Lorne Michaels said "took on a groundswell.

"[White as the host] isn't something we would have said no to, [but the campaign] validated that... It was the outpouring of affection from fans, and we feel the same way."

Simply put, "she's the mother of us all in comedy," Michaels said.

Go ahead and set your DVR for this episode of the long-running sketch series. We'll wait right here.

Casey James and Crystal Bowersox who?!?

With a performance of Kate Bush's "This Woman's Work," Michael Lynche established himself as the new American Idol favorite last night.

Showing incredible range, from an amazing falsetto to an impressive baritone, the man known as Big Mike brought Kara DioGuardi to tears. A lot of tears. She could barely get her words of praise out as she choked up. It was actually a very sweet moment.

Below, we've ranked the eight performances from last night. Lynche aside, who was your favorite?

  1. Michael Lynche: So this is what happens when your wife is in the audience, huh?
  2. Casey James: Not his best performance, and we agree the Keith Urban song was a safe choice... but who else deserves this spot?
  3. Alex Lambert: You can stop with the banana references now, Ellen. Solid rendition of a Ray LaMontagne classic proves Lambert is simply a great singer.
  4. Andrew Garcia: The judges have forced him to get as creative as possible each week, taking his focus off actual singing, it seems. Can we all just forget about his "Straight Up" arrangement at this point?
  5. Todrick Hall: Points of taking a risk. But "Somebody to Love" almost belongs to the Glee cast at this point. We just think of them when we hear it.
  6. Aaron Kelly: Solid version of "I'm Already There." We're glad Simon shut Kara up about taking the song so literally and making it seem like a young crooner couldn't take it on.
  7. Lee DeWyze: He'll likely stick around, but our least favorite performance from this rocker.
  8. Tim Urban: Were we listening to a different version of "Hallelujah?" We didn't buy him at all singing this classic.

For once, drama involving someone on The Real Housewives of Atlanta is NOT being scripted.

Bryson Bryant, the oldest son of NeNe Leakes, was arrested on a misdemeanor marijuana possession charge on March 7.

Bryant is well known to any long-time Bravo viewer. During the first season of the show, Leakes looked at colleges with him.

“Like any parent, I am disappointed with the actions and arrest of my son, Bryson,” NeNe said in the statement. “Certainly, my husband and I will deal with this family issue in a private manner. My son is not the first young adult to experiment with marijuana, and he certainly won’t be the last.

"Still, as parents, this is a chance for us to have an open dialogue with him about the dangers of any substance abuse. I realize as a parent that my job is never done. And as I’ve tweeted, tough love was in order. Still, I ask that you respect our privacy during this trying time.”

We'll be glad to, but will NeNe do the same? The Real Housewives of Atlanta was picked up for a third season today, after all.

You wouldn't have expected them to be an under-the-radar couple, but Benji Madden and Holly Madison are still together.

The pair started dating in December and things have only grown more intense from there.

In fact, reports In Touch Weekly, Madden and Madison will soon be roommates.

“Benji cares very much for Holly. They have been talking about living together,” a source said, adding that Holly will soon leave Las Vegas to reside in Los Angeles with Benji.

Last week, the two were spotted making out at an IT BOYS! music video shoot.

“Benji kept telling her how amazing she looked. They couldn’t keep their eyes off each other,” said a witness.

That might have something to do with Holly's breasts, of course. They take up an entire room.

As predicted by The Hollywood Gossip, the Kardashians responded publicly to a pair of tabloid covers last week, as all three sisters took to their blogs and shot down stories that were likely planted by their publicists.

Welcome to the circle of publicity this family has established for itself.

Magazine Photo Shoot

The siblings are at it again, as Kim and Kourtney Kardashian are featured in the latest issue of In Touch Weekly. Expect each to act shocked and angered over the report later today, while toasting their PR team at home and basking in another week of headlines...

With Kourtney and Khloe in Miami, filming the second season of their scripted "reality" show, a friend tells the magazine that Scott Disick is acting as douchey as ever:

"In public, he tries to act like the perfect boyfriend because he’s paranoid about what people think of him. But at night, he is the same guy he’s always been. He still parties. He still flirts. He still hangs out with his guy friends. Nothing has changed for him.”

The insider adds that Scott and Kourtney are only "together when they're filming their reality show or being photographed.”

Wait, we're confused. Isn't that all the time?
