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.

Adorable alert: Selena Gomez is the cover subject of the latest Seventeen magazine.

The cute actress poses for a series of photos inside the special prom issue, while also opening up about a number of issues in her life. What has she learned? What is most important to her?

The following interview excerpts supply a few answers...

On appreciating what she has: I get hurt - everybody does - but I'm more at the point where I'm looking at all the good things in my life. I have a healthy family who's alive that I'm blessed to have, and wonderful friends.

On this year's fashion: My least favorite trend of 2009 would have to be broad-shouldered jackets. I'm probably bitter because I can't pull it off! It did look good on certain people, just not me.

On the World Wide Web: I've given up the Internet. I don't read comments, and I don't go on any of the sites anymore, and I just feel better. And it's not about being a celebrity — you get on MySpace, Facebook, there's all these different outlets where people can just feel like nobody's watching them so they can just say whatever they want to say.

On posing for covers: I never dreamed about being on magazine covers. I always dreamed that I would get to do what I loved - this was just a bonus!

It's hard not to adore Gomez. She's young, talented and seems to have a regular head on her shoulders. We wish her nothing but a lifetime of success.

She's known for her large breasts and rich French husband.

But Salma Hayek has made news over the last couple months for two other reasons:

  1. She guest-starred on 30 Rock in a hilarious role as Jack Donaghy's girlfriend;
  2. She changed her hairstyle.

While the sitcom stint resulted in a few of the funniest scenes on TV, the change to Hayek's appearance as led to an Internet uproar.

Fans are split on whether they prefer the actress with long hair or with a bob. Compare the looks below and decide for yourself:

  • Salma Hayek Lace Dress
  • Salma Hayek Golden Globes Dress

Which hairstyle is most beautiful?

We're less than a month away from the premiere of American Idol season nine.

While the major show news over the last few months involved Ellen DeGeneres as the new judge; the latest buzz regarding the competition revolves around the man that truly makes the series what it is: Simon Cowell.

According to Simon's brother Tony, a radio personality with a weekly podcast: “A press statement is being prepared which will confirm what everybody expected: Simon will leave Idol at the end of 2010 to concentrate on bringing the American version of ‘X Factor’ to U.S. TV in 2011.”

If true, that would make this Cowell's final season as a panelist. Would you even watch American Idol if he left?

Simon

Regarding the season itself, Fox announced a few key dates for it this week:

  • January 12, 13, 19, 20, 26, 27; February 2, 3: Nationwide auditions for Hollywood. Rotating guest judges will include Victoria Beckham, Mary J. Blige, Kristin Chenoweth, Neil Patrick Harris, Joe Jonas, Avril Lavigne, Katy Perry, and Shania Twain.
  • February 9: Hollywood rounds. DeGeneres debuts.
  • February 17: 24 semifinalists announced.
  • March 16: 12 finalists announced.

Also of note: there will be no Wild Card round this year, as the controversial addition to last season's Idol gave the judges the power to keep one contestant on even after he/she was voted off by viewers.

Remember: THG is your destination for complete American Idol recaps, videos and commentaries once the season begins!

Women throughout America - at least those that don't work as cocktail waitresses in Las Vegas - already hate Tiger Woods.

It sounds like professional athletes will soon feel the same way.

According to various sources, Warner Brothers has registered TMZSports.com, a sports-themed domain meant to serve as complement to its popular celebrity gossip website.

Insiders say this spin-off was planned long before Woods - and his wayward driver - made it clear just how much the public is interested in the private lives of sports stars. But it's safe to assume Tiger's nine-inch iron play helped speed along the decision.

Meanwhile, that sound you hear? It's the furious deletion of names/numbers from the cell phones of athletes all over the world.

Who has the most to fear if TMZ Sports comes to fruition? Handsome stars with exciting love lives, such as those pictured above: Tom Brady, Tony Romo, Reggie Bush and Alex Rodriguez.

Who has the least to fear? The Hollywood Gossip!

We're so confident in our fan base (thank you, readers!), website features (TMZ doesn't even have a photo gallery!) and versatility (why visit two TMZ sites when THG has the latest on the world of sports and entertainment on a daily basis!) that we have no qualms writing an article about a competitor.

How come? Because our number-one priority is delivering news to our loyal fan base. If it's happening anywhere in the world, it's happening on The Hollywood Gossip.

The face on Lynne Curtin? Not real.

The situations she and her castmates on The Real Housewives of Orange County find themselves in? Also not real.

Derek Lowe Mug Shot

The legal problems now facing Curtin and husband Frank? Very real.

The pair were scheduled to appear in a California courtroom yesterday to answer questions regarding a $1.2 million judgment they've been ordered to pay to a former business partner... but the couple simply bailed on the proceedings.

As a result, TMZ reports a judge has issued a bench warrant for Lynne and Frank's arrest. Unlike the ridiculous exploits on Curtin's scripted reality show, this is actually a serious matter.

In August, meanwhile, Lynne and Frank were evicted from their home for failing to pay rent.

We can think of at least one New Year's resolution for Curtin: focus more on your family than on fame. This is a novel concept for any supposedly Real Housewife, we know.

But give it a shot.

The shocking relationship betwen Jamie-Lynn Sigler and Jerry Ferrera is over.

After more than a year of dating, the couple - who met when Sigler guest-starred on Entourage as Ferrera's character's girlfriend - has reportedly parted ways.

Sigler attended last week's premiere of It's Complicated by herself, and a friend says the actress has actually turned to Lance Bass for a shoulder to lean on.

"Lance is a really good friend to Jamie," the source told The New York Daily News. "He's been helping her out and giving her good advice."

While Sigler wasn't thrilled about the split, the insider says she's doing okay.

"It came at a good time for Jamie-Lynn. She was coming home to New York for the holidays anyway, and she wanted to do her own thing for a little while and definitely be out of Hollywood."

As for Ferrera? Well, he'll never date anyone as hot as Sigler again. Sorry, dude.

When Reggie Bush lines up across from linebacker Brian Urlacher on Sundays, he has no fear.

But place the NFL star next to a hormone-laden Kourtney Kardashian, days after she gave birth, and the running back cowers in trepidation.

Such was the case last week, according to sources that claim Bush was set to finally propose to Kim Kardashian - until an irate Kourtney stepped in and threw a fit over the possibility that this engagement news would overshadow her status as a new mother.

"Kourtney screamed at Reggie, 'You can't do this to me!'" a family friend told The National Enquirer. "Kourtney is extremely hormonal right now, and her emotions got the best of her. Reggie was stunned and caught completely off-guard."

The anonymous, clearly legitimate source added that Bush was so frightened by this display that he's shelved plans for a proposal until early 2010.

Flipping for Publicity, Touchdowns: Kourtney Kardashian and Reggie Bush.

There have been rumors for months that Kim is jealous of Kourtney's motherhood.

This friend says the hostility runs both ways.

"There's always been underlying tension because Kourtney feels like she's been playing second fiddle to Kim for so long. She was hoping the last days of her pregnancy and the first few weeks with her newborn would be all about her."

Kourtney hoping for things to be all about her? That's the only part of this story we actually believe.

Another round of congratulations is due for Jennifer Hudson and fiance David Otunga.

Star magazine reports the pair is expecting another child, just four months after Hudson gave birth to her first son. Man, that singer's womb is working harder than over 14% of the population in the state of Michigan!

Crude jokes aside, friends say this pregnancy wasn't planned.

“Jennifer was in total shock when she found out she was having another baby,” said a source. “She had wanted some space between the kids’ ages.”

Jennifer Hudson's newborn will not lack for a good meal... if you know what we mean!

Despite the shock, Hudson and Otunga are treating the news like an early Christmas surprise.

“She and David love kids,” added the insider. “It’s another thing for them to celebrate during the holidays.”

We couldn't be happier for Jennifer and David. Join us in wishing this growing family the best!

** Update: Hudson's rep says: "Contrary to what has been falsely reported, Jennifer Hudson is not pregnant."

Kristen Stewart does many things well: pout, fall for vampires, make love to Robert Pattinson.

Heck, she's not even a terrible singer.

The actress may wanna avoid accents in the future, however. The following clip is courtesy of some movie titled The Yellow Hankerchief, whose release has been delayed numerous times due to poor reviews and production.

While Stewart's attempt at speaking with a southern accent isn't directly to blame, it doesn't exactly help, either. See, and hear, for yourself:

Note to Miley Cyrus: you should move to England.

We don't offer this advice because we find you incredibly grating and self-serving. No way. That's not the reason at all.

It's just evident that you're wildly popular overseas, as you performed in front of the largest crowd ever at London's 02 arena earlier this month.

The singer played to 16,196 fans on the third of her five concerts in the area. She previously sold out 10 UK dates for her "Wonder World" tour in a mere 10 minutes.

Even the THG staff had to admit that Cyrus' British rendition of "Party in the USA" was entertaining. We'd be happy to help her pack her bags for the move. Seriously, Miles. Call us.
