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.

Is the speculation over? Is Mezhgan Hussainy set to be Mrs. Simon Cowell?

Radar Online does not offer any direct quotes on the rumor, but the website says Hussainy herself told its vice president that she was engaged to the American Idol judge.

Earlier this week, during a simple, sweet, candid moment on the show, Ryan Seacrest asked Simon who he kept winking to in the audience and Cowell replied: "My girlfriend."

Simon C.

Says Simon's publicist, Max Clifford:

“They are very suited. She is someone who is independent and says what she thinks and feels, and he likes that. He's probably the happiest I have ever known him in the nine years I've been working with him."

Hussainy works as a make-up artist on American Idol. Assuming she really is engaged to Cowell, insiders say a wedding may take place in the very near future. We wish these two the best!

According to Brittany Murphy's recently-released autopsy, "multiple medications were present in the blood, with elevated levels of hydrocodone, acetaminophen, and chlorpheniramine."

Because these were prescription drugs, not illegal ones, attention-loving husband Simon Monjack says the report vindicates him.

"She never did anything that she was accused of!" Monjack told Us Weekly. "We never hid anything. And that's been the case with everything in our marriage. Maybe with her death, people will start to realize - yes, we had a lot of prescriptions around, but if you look at some of them, they date from 2001!"

Simon and Brittany

Monjack - who has been accused of setting up a fake charity in his late wife's name in order to extort mourners - says he found "solace" in the autopsy and rejects the idea that Murphy's death could have been prevented.

"Any death could be prevented," he said. "It's a tragedy."

True. But this wasn't the case of someone getting hit by a drunken driver. Murphy's death has been ruled an "accident," but either Brittany, Simon or both were negligent in some manner when it came to the medication in her system.

In the end, Monjack wants people to leave him alone and "stop coming out with these ridiculous stories" about his relationship with the actress.

"Our marriage was dogged by these ridiculous rumors. Brittany's life was dogged by ridiculous rumors, and the truth always wins out," Simon said. "I hope people have the sense to really understand that everything was beautiful and wonderful in our relationship and so pure."

Just shut up for a few days, dude, and we'll be happy to never say a word about this tragedy again.

These days, Whitney Houston sounds like Britney Spears and looks like Courtney Love.

We wish this singer the best, but watch her sing in Australia. She's an absolute mess.

But that's actually not true, publicist Kristen Foster somehow claims. She told E! News yesterday:

"Whitney is in great health and having a terrific time on her tour and with her fans. There were over 9,000 people at her show in Brisbane, and there were over 12,000 at Acer Arena last night in Sydney. Her fans were dancing and singing along with her and Whitney appreciates their support."

But with Whitney stopping mid-song to take water breaks, and actually having back-up singers hit the high notes on "I Will Always Love You," many concert-goers have been anything but supportive.

One audience member told Asiancorrespondent.com that Houston "couldn't entertain a dead rat," which may be our favorite quote of the decade.

The Sydney Morning Herald tried to offer Whitney a few props, citing her "incoherence," but saying those in attendance eventually "warmed to her."

Sadly, at this point in her once-incredible career, this passes for high praise for Houston.

For years, we thought the only thing wrong with Two and a Half Men were the incredibly immature and unfunny quotes uttered on the sitcom each week.

Little did we know about the scandals plaguing its stars behind the scenes. While Charlie Sheen's struggle with alcohol, drugs and domestic abuse have been well-documented, they almost pale in comparison to the troubles facing Jon Cryer.

In May 2009, the actor's ex-wife, Sarah Trigger, was arrested on charges of felony child neglect. Reports indicated she had choked her and Cryer's eight-year old son.

Now, according to documents in the custody battle between the couple (obtained by TMZ), Trigger asked ex-boyfriend Eddie Sanchez to murder Cryer and her first estranged husband, David Dickey.

Jon Cryer and Sarah Trigger

"Mr. Sanchez... said that it was [Sarah Trigger] who had contacted him on numerous occasions, stating that she wanted to see the pair [Cryer and Dickey] dead, and even asking Mr. Sanchez if he would kill the pair," the documents read.

The FBI launched an investigation into this matter last month, but would not comment on anything beyond that.

Vicki Greene, Trigger's lawyer, defended her client to TMZ:

"Sarah has not threatened anyone, especially Jon and those are statements that are refuted and she has evidence to show that Mr. Sanchez has already recanted those statements to her."

We'll follow up on this story and post those statements if they surface. For now, the situation is even scarier than the fact that so many people tune in to Two and a Half Men each week.

** UPDATE: TMZ now reports that a voicemail, allegedly left by Sanchez, was left on Trigger's mother's phone on January 22 and it stated that Sarah never asked him to kill anyone.

Sheryl Crow once crooned that "the first cut is the deepest."

For American Idol last night, the first four cuts were the most erroneous. Let's analyze each below:

Joe Munoz over Tim Urban?!? The latter might be cute, but did you see the look of shock on his face after Ryan told Tim he was safe? Did viewers really do Urban a favor by keeping him around and ensuring his weak vocal skills will be torn apart again and again until America comes to its senses?

Tyler Grady over Jermaine Sellers?!? We weren't fans of Grady's 1970s-inspired gimmick, either. But he made a great point (which Simon acknowledged, if you read his lips) about the judges selecting him for the semifinals... but then jumping all over him for the same schtick that got him there.

It would have been nice to have seen if Tyler had more to offer going forward, especially compared to the over-emotional nonsense that Sellers through our way this week.

Given the Boot

Janell Wheeler over Haeley Vaughn?!? Yes, Wheeler chose the wrong song. She's not a rocker. But Vaughn comes across like some sort of frightening, dressed-up doll. She just looks awkward on stage and her rendition of "I Want to Hold Your Hand" wasn't strong.

Ashley Rodriguez over Lacey Brown?!? Brown was really bad and Ashley is really good looking. Come on, voters!

At least we got to see Allison Iraheta and Kris Allen perform. And at least we can still look forward to Crystal Bowersox, Didi Benami and Andrew Garcia next week. But this was a poor start for the viewing public.

Did you agree with who was sent home? As you ponder that question, check out a few photos below from the first results show of season nine:

  • For Haiti
  • Goodbye, Good Luck
  • There, There
  • Final Song

It's a good thing Levi Johnston posed for Playgirl: as a result, he should be able to actually support his son.

An Alaskan judge has sided with Bristol Palin and ordered Levi to pay $18,500 in back child support for 13-month-old son Tripp. The deadbeat father could have saved about $18,485 if he had just bought a pack of condoms back in the day.

Johnston must also shell out $1,688.42 per month in child support.

Their sham of an engagement over, Bristol and Levi have gone from making public appearances to support Sarah Palin's political future to fighting it out in a courtroom.

"Bristol is pleased with the court rulings today and looks forward to resolving the remaining issues with Levi," said lawyer Thomas Van Flein, one of the few family employees that has not resigned due to Sarah Palin's selfish lunacy.

Bristol was present in the courtroom for the ruling. Johnston was not.

"I have received limited and sporadic financial assistance from Levi," she said in a statement, citing Johnston's $105,000 in 2009 earnings, versus his meager payments to her of $4,400.

Where will the pair go from here? Johnston might actually guest star on Desperate Housewives, while Bristol is booked for a hypocritical appearance on The Secret Life of an American Teenager. It's an ironic title for a show on which she'll cameo.

After all, Sarah Palin has gone out of her way to make sure Bristol's life is anything but secret.

The Andrew Koenig saga has ended in tragedy.

Almost two weeks since the former Growing Pains actor went missing, Koenig was found dead yesterday in a wooded area of a downtown park where he often spent time. All indications point to suicide.

Said actor's father, Walter Koenig: “My son took his own life... If you can learn anything from this, it’s that there are people out there who really care, and you may not think so, and ultimately it may not be enough, but... before you make that final decision, check it out again, talk to somebody."

Police spokeswoman Jana McGuinness simply echoed that sentiment: "I'll let Mr. Koenig's words speak for themselves."

Speaking at a press conference at the park, McGuinness said foul play was not an issue, but added she could not elaborate until the coroner completed the investigation.

Koenig recurred on the 1980s sitcom as Richard "Boner" Stabone. His last television appearance took place in 1993 on an episode of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. Our thoughts go out to his family.

Earlier this month, a Los Angeles coroner confirmed that Casey Johnson died of diabetes-related complications. He specifically cited an issue known as "diabetic ketoacidosis," which is caused by a lack of insulin.

Yesterday afternoon, meanwhile, the L.A. County Coroner's Office released the official autopsy report for Johnson's death and it revealed a few details related to the tragedy:

  • Casey's body was free from injury of any kind.
  • Multiple medications found at the scene included Motrin, insulin and clonazepam.
  • The report cites a "possible excess use of Nyquil."
  • No illegal drugs were found in Johnson's system.

Two sad notes related to the Johnson & Johnson family heiress: her death was preventable if she had taken better care of herself; and her body may have been found on January 4, but it lay in her home, undiscovered, for days.

It's getting close to official: Carrie Prejean will soon commit to an opposite marriage with Kyle Boller.

The disgraced beauty queen - who believes in naked photos, sex tapes, fake boobs and lying for the benefit of one's career at all times, but not equal rights - and the back-up quarterback started dating in November and got engaged three weeks ago.

BL!SSS Magazine Spread

Sorry, Kyle Boller. The whole world has pretty much seen all your fiancee has to offer.

Sources close to Prejean say the dedicated Christian has already moved into Boeller's house.

"[The engagement] party is happening this weekend,” an insider told RadarOnline.com. "She told me she’s so excited to have set a date for her wedding.”

We bet. The pair can finally have sex at that point, seeing as the bible tells Prejean she has to wait until marriage.

Note to Miley Cyrus: We know we've had our differences and THG isn't your biggest fan on the planet. But please take this piece of advice:

Get an STD test... stat!

As the following picture and video prove, you've officially shared the same air with Bret Michaels, a reality TV star whose had more sex with groupies on VH1's Rock of Love than his former band, Poison, had number-one hits.

For reasons we'll never comprehend, Miley and Michaels have collaborated on a new single titled “Nothing to Lose.” During the track, the long-haired skank-banger teams with Cyrus on the chorus. It goes:

Won't you fall down on me/So close I can feel you breathe/Tonight in the darkness with nothing to lose/If the truth is all we can see/If I fall for you, could you fall for me?

Ummm... is that really appropriate for a 17-year to be singing with a dirty, washed-up, sex-crazed rocker?

“Bret and I had a great time in the studio together just hanging out and making music,” Miley said. “He’s is so passionate about music and it shows. I think it is such a rad collaboration because it shows that two artists that seem so different on the outside can come together and organically create something that we are both proud of.”

Hurry up and check out the video below, lest YouTube remove it. Then, let us know: Is this a positive or negative step for Miley's career?
