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 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.

He may have performed in front of millions of American Idol viewers and seen his album sales take off, but Adam Lambert didn't officially strike it big until yesterday.

That's when he sat down with talk show icon Oprah Winfrey. The singer didn't touch on anything new in the interview - no, he doesn't regret his American Music Awards performance; yes, he's gay - but he did take the next step in a burgeoning career.

In the following clip, Lambert takes fans on a mini journey of his life. In a nutshell: he eats and he shops. See what we mean:

Lambert also shared his New Year's resolution with viewers: to enjoy every single moment in the spotlight.

He recognized that fame is fleeting and that many winners of American Idol quickly fell out of the public consciousness (no offense, Taylor Hicks). Therefore, he's gonna try his hardest to take in every opportunity and always appreciate what he's accomplished.

Spoken like the Adam Lambert we know and love, right?

Of course, Adam performed for Oprah and fans, too. Watch his rendition of "If I Had You" below.

Her character got engaged to end the last season of Entourage, but in real life, Emmanuelle Chriqui has even better news to share:

She's the most desirable woman in the world, at least according to Askmen.com.

That website has concluded its annual poll with an unexpected result: last year's winner, Megan Fox, has fallen all the way to number-11. Chriqui has sky-rocketed to the front because...

... we don’t know her, which is a rarity in the paparazzi-infested 21st century. Chriqui is reminiscent of Old Hollywood glamour in the sense that the only glimpses we see of her personal life exist on red carpets.

Is that really a reason to rank this beauty at the top of such a sexy list? Sure, she speaks fluent English and French. And she was involved in a threesome a couple years ago on Entourage, but still.

Check out her photos below and then let us know your thoughts:

In the latest issue of Allure, Beyonce opens up about a number of topics.

Does she want children? What game is she hooked on? And will we see Sasha Fierce ever again? Find out below...

On having kids: “I definitely want to have a child, but I know from my nephew [Juelz] it’s a lot. I hope that those things will just happen naturally. I still haven’t had time to relax.”

On playing Spades online: "I play with everybody, and they curse me out when I make mistakes, and kick me out of the room. I love it, it’s really fun because no one knows it’s me.”

On alter-ego Sasha Fierce: “The thing that’s interesting is I don’t need Sasha Fierce anymore, because I’ve grown, and I’m now able to merge the two. I want people to see me. I want people to see who I am.”

But only one star appears in the film, makes out with Taylor Lautner and has a single on the movie's soundtrack: Taylor Swift.
