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.

According to sources, George Clooney and Elisabetta Canalis are "more in love than ever."

Does this mean they'll be walking down the aisle soon? It's unlikely. But rumors are swirling that Clooney might plant his handsome seed inside the Italian model.

"George has done a complete 180 on starting a family," a friend told The National Enquirer. "He's still not a huge fan of the institution of marriage, but Elisabetta has made him rethink having children and settling down."

Over the holidays, Canalis allegedly joked she wanted a baby for Christmas. Clooney's reply? Be careful what she wished for.

"They're both incredibly happy and I certainly could see them having a baby in the next year," the source said.

Before then, of course, the actor has other important responsibilities: he's hosting this Friday night's telethon, which is bringing celebrities together in honor of earthquake victims in Haiti.

Attention, Twi-Hards:

We know Eclipse comes out on June 30. And New Moon will be released on DVD on March 20.

But this is far too long to wait for more Twilight Saga madness. That's why you should mark your calendar for March 16.

That's the date on which 350,000 copies of Twilight: The Graphic Novel, Vol. 1 hits stores. It's also the date on which stores get sold out of 350,000 copies of Twilight: The Graphic Novel, Vol. 1.

The comic book-like tome contains drawings of Twilight characters by artist Young Kim. Said Meyer of the graphic novel:

"I was definitely involved. I didn’t do the original “script” for the book, so to speak.  But when I got the dialogue with the images, I did a lot of tinkering... I asked for missing scenes to be inserted.  For example, the conversation in the car that Bella and Edward have after she faints in Biology."

We're all familiar with that one, aren't we?

So, how does Kim envision Edward and Bella? They look a bit different from Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart on page. Take a look and let us know: will you purchase this book?

While this month's earthquake in Haiti has led to incomprehensible damage and death figures, there's been the tiniest of silver linings:

Countless celebrities have come together in support of the victims in that poor, needy nation. Brad Pitt, Sandra Bullock, Madonna and many others have donated money to the cause, while George Clooney has organized a telethon that will air on every major network this Friday night.

Among the young stars that will appear on the telecast are Robert Pattinson, Zac Efron and Taylor Swift. We can now add Selena Gomez to that list.

S. Gomez

The 17-year-old actress posted the following on her Facebook page today:

“I will be on the phones during George Clooney & Joel Gallen’s Hope for Haiti Now telethon this Friday from 5pm to 7pm PST. I am so honored to be an active participant in this amazing fund raising event.

"Be sure to tune in, you cannot miss it it is on MTV, over 30 major TV networks, and CNN worldwide. Let’s all come together and help those in Haiti.”

We couldn't agree more, Selena.

Adam Lambert is also on board with the cause. Below, watch his PSA on behalf of the Red Cross.

Who would have thought Cindy McCain would have something in common with Kim Kardashian and Tila Tequila?

And, for once, we're not referring to Cindy's penchant for flaunting her cleavage in public!

Instead, like those outspoken reality stars, the wife of former Republican Presidential candidate John McCain has come out in favor of marriage equality.

She's the latest celebrity to pose for photographer Adam Bouska's NoH8 Campaign, which was created in response to the passage of Proposition 8 in California.

Writes Bouska:

"Aligning yourself with the platform of gay marriage as a Republican still tends to be very stigmatic, but Cindy McCain wanted to participate in the campaign to show people that party doesn't matter - marriage equality isn't a Republican issue any more than it is a Democratic issue.

It's about human rights, and everybody being treated equally in the eyes of the law that runs and protects this country."

Amen, Cindy! We apologize for ever referring to you as a Stepford Wife.

As American Idol delves deeper into its ninth season, fans will start to concentrate on potential break-out artists and finalists such as Katelyn Epperly and Aaron Kelly.

For now, though, the upcoming departure of Simon Cowell is still a major topic. What does Kara DioGuardi think about her fellow judge saying goodbye?

Pia Toscano Sings on American Idol

"He's a huge part of the show," she said at a Golden Globes party. "He's got one of the best personalities ever on a television show... He's made the show hugely successful, and he's going to be very missed."

Who might fill Cowell's seat? DioGuardi seemed stumped by that question, but doesn't believe Ryan Seacrest will pull double duty on future seasons.

"I don't see Ryan giving up what he's currently doing on Idol," she said. "What he's doing now works for him perfectly... I have no idea who will or who should replace Simon."

Do you, readers? Chime in now with your suggestions!

David Letterman has a message for television viewers around the world:

Do NOT blame Conan O'Brien for the late-night mess at NBC!

As The Late Show host says, following Jay Leno's explanation on Monday night, it's tempting to point a finger at O'Brien for pulling himself off the air and creating this controversy, but remember: Conan is a good family man. Give the guy a break, will ya?!?

We really don't do bitter, hilarious sarcasm as well as Letterman. Watch him continue his assault on Jay Leno and NBC below.

Things continue to spiral downward for Brooke Mueller.

Less than a month after her Christmas Eve incident with husband Charlie Sheen, Mueller has been placed in intensive care at a Los Angeles hospital. Reports indicate her fever rose as high as 105, following oral surgery earlier this week.

Said her lawyer, Yale Galanter:

"Brooke is in the hospital ICU related to the surgery for her impacted wisdom tooth. They are trying to get the infection and fever under control. The infection has spread."

Mueller is being treated with antibiotics.

A court hearing on her and Sheen's request to modify his protective order was originally set for today and then pushed back to Friday.

This isn't Sheen's fault, of course, but his influence on Brooke is clearly negative. The same can be said for his influence on network television, as Two and a Half Men has lowered the bar for unfunny sitcoms. It's really, really stupid.

Rumors of a romance between Emilie de Ravin and Robert Pattinson have finally died down.

For awhile, celebrity gossip sites and reporters were buzzing about a possible connection between these two stars as they filmed Remember Me in New York City last year, even though Robert is clearly dating Kristen Stewart.

Now, with the movie set to premiere in March, its cast members are making the media rounds - and de Ravin may have inadvertently sparked new buzz for tabloids to seize on.

In an interview with MTV, the Lost star says she and the Twilight Saga stud got along very well from the outset of shooting:

"I flew to New York to test with Rob and we immediately got along and had instant great chemistry, which is not an easy thing to come by," Emilie said. "Obviously you’re acting, but you want to have that connection with somebody. We had it."

As for her relationship with Pattinson off set, the actress says it was platonic... but still very close:

"It was so great being able to work with someone you immediately get along with and is incredibly talented and is driven to make the film as good as we can. Having someone you can go and talk with about a scene, and it's all very casual and easy, that made filming such a delight."

Before Twilight fans start worrying about what this means, a word of advice: relax. Pattinson and Stewart were recently spotted together and seem very happy.

Kourtney Kardashian has lost a great deal of her baby weight because she takes QuickTrim, the same unhealthy, non-FDA approved supplement shilled for by sisters Kim and Khloe.

You're welcome. We just saved you the price of this week's OK! Weekly.

Indeed, Kourtney poses on the cover of that magazine's latest edition, once again cradling son Mason and setting a great example for talentless socialites around the world:

You, too, can achieve fame and fortune if you get knocked up outside marriage and sell your soul to a weight loss supplement.

Save yourself 50 cents. Read about Jessica Simpson's new body, Jen and Gerard's flirting and everything related to Jake Pavelka on THG!

This is the third consecutive week Kourtney and Mason have graced the cover of a supermarket tabloid. You tell us:

Is this an example of capitalism at its best, or of an explotive mother pimping out her helpless baby in exchange for an increased bank account?

Thanks to the futility of the Cubs, Chicago is known as a city of lovable losers.

But Katelyn Epperly may change all that.

The curly-haired 19-year old from Iowa was the top auditioner in the Windy City last night. She told a sad personal story about her father leaving and then wowed American Idol judges with a version of Duffy's “Syrup and Honey."

Randy loved her unique sound, while guest judge Shania Twain told Epperly: “I think you have a voice that could sing a hit song."

What else do we know about Katelyn so far?

  • She fronts a folk-rock band called Katelyn & the Bruises.
  • She cites her musical influeces as Wilco, Good Old War, the Format, Thom Yorke and Fiona Apple, among others.
  • She portrayed Dorothy in a 2004 production of The Wizard of Oz at the Des Moines Playhouse.

Other golden ticket recipients from Chicago included Charity Vance, John Park and Paige Dechausse. But, from this group, only Epperly is rumored to have advanced to the final 24.

Watch her audition below and sound off on her chances to be crowned the next American Idol.
