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.

Robert Pattinson isn't the only major celebrity covering a random magazine this month.

First Lady Michelle Obama is featured in the latest issue of Prevention, dishing on her diet and her work out routine.

"I love French fries, I like a good burger, and I like pie. And that's okay. I would be depressed if I felt I could never eat the things that I love," Obama says, raving about the White House's cooking staff.

She adds that she can treat herself to such fare because she wakes up at 4:30 a.m. each morning to exercise. The workouts vary between Pilates, cardio, stretching, and weights.

"I enjoy arm exercises because you can see what it's hitting," she said, citing the impressive biceps that have made such headlines over the last few months.

From fashion to dieting, there's little Michelle Obama is not an expert on.

Ironically, while her husband receives rebukes from some liberals for being too moderate, Michelle singles out moderation as the key to any healthy diet.

"I don't want my girls to be obsessed about food," she said. "We don't have a 'no junk food' rule – I just want them to think about their choices. When my older daughter asks, 'Can I have pie?' I'll say, 'Did you have it yesterday? Well, what do you think?' And she'll come to the conclusion that, 'You know, you're right, I shouldn't eat pie every night.'"

Wow. Exercise and a balanced diet? What a novel concept for weight loss! Call us crazy, but Michelle Obama might be a better role model in this area than Kim Kardashian.

The hammer might finally come down on Tom DeLay this week, as the disgraced politician earned the lowest score last night on Dancing with the Stars.

He and partner Cheryl Burke couldn't keep up with the top couples, which included Karina Smirnoff and Aaron Carter, the latter of whom has guaranteed victory this season.

So far, the Joe Namath of Dancing with the Stars is looking solid. Below, we recap the evening's scores...

  • Kelly Osbourne, DWTS

If there's one thing Adam Lambert has proven over the last few months, it's that he's his own man.

He'll come out of the closet on his own time, he'll create his own versions of classic songs and no one will tell him otherwise. It's an admirable quality.

In a recent interview, the singer said the same creative freedom will apply to his debut album. Record label 19 Entertainment has not put any restrictions on the type of CD he wants to make.

"I think there's a little bit of a misconception out in the public that people that come out of American Idol are puppetted and kind of controlled," Adam told E! News. "That hasn't been my experience one bit. They've been completely supportive and collaborative with me and all the powers that be are really trying to facilitate my artistic vision."

High Note Hitter

How many copies of Adam Lambert's debut album will you purchase?

Of the CD - which hits stores in less than two months! - Lambert said he's working with top producers such as Linda Perry and Ryan Tedder. He's also penning his own singles.

"I really feel I've gotten to inject a lot of this music on the album with my own personal vocal stylings and my own lyrical content. A lot of it talks about stuff I really care about and that I find interesting, so that feels really good."

Of course, no interview would be complete without asking Adam for his feelings on new judge Ellen DeGeneres. His reply:

"She's obviously a fan of the show, and she's been in the entertainment industry for a long time... I think she'll provide a lot of great insight and really speak for the people that watch the show that aren't all that well versed in the music industry and in music."

Looking to expand her resume beyond High School Musical and reach out to a more diverse audience, Ashley Tisdale has posed for a Puerco Espin campaign.

The Italian clothing line features Tisdale in a series of ads this week, one of which reads:

Ashley Tisdale Red Carpet Pic

“Fashion, romantic, chic, casual and refined; here the many spirits of the collection interpreted in fantastic way from the mythical Ashley.”

Yes, mythical. That's higher praise than even boyfriend Scott Speer might give Ashley.

Said Tisdale, who recently dyed her hair brown again: “I love Milan, I love Italy and I love wonderful the Italian fashion.”

And we love how she looks in these outfits. Click on the photos below for larger versions of her advertisements:

In this economy, isn't it nice to know that not everyone is suffering?

Sure, the unemployment rate in Detroit is close to 30% and average home prices in that once-thriving city are under $20,000.

But at least talentless reality stars are raking in millions per year to read from cue cards and pretend to get married!

A Trophy Wife

Speidi earned more money for this photograph than millions of people make in a year. We're not exaggerating.

A new report from The Daily Beast reveals the salaries for various cast members on The Hills. You might wanna be sitting down for these. The numbers are more shocking than anything Mackenzie Phillips has ever said...

  • Lauren Conrad: $125,000/episode
  • Audrina Patridge, Lauren Bosworth and Heidi Montag: $100,000/episode
  • Kristin Cavallari: $90,000/episode
  • Spencer Pratt: $65,000/episode
  • Brody Jenner: $45,000/episode

Keep in mind, these figures represent solely what each star brings in per half hour. Spencer and Heidi are known to pocket close to $50,000 for personal appearance and staged photo ops.

We bet they have good health insurance, too.

Barack Obama really needs to implement his Socialist agenda and do something about the discrepency between the rich and the poor in this country.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have a Little League team worth of kids at home.

They give to numerous charities.

And nary a named witness has said a word about any fights between the couple.

Yet, according to a supermarket tabloid, the pair cutely dubbed "Brangelina" has broken up. Pitt has even moved out, as this reliable publication screams on its cover:

In Touch Cover

Beware, Robert Pattinson: There's a good chance this tabloid will next claim Brad Pitt is making a move on Kristen Stewart!

Despite appearances - as well as all sanity and logic - to the contrary, life for Hollywood's hottest couple has never been worse, sources told In Touch Weekly.

“Sure, they look happy in photos,” a friend said. “ [But] the cracks in their relationship are getting deeper and deeper. They are actors and can turn it on for the cameras most of the time.

Hmmm, they are actors! Each has even been nominated for an Academy Award! This story is seeming more likely by the second.

Following an argument in April, an insider said Pitt stormed out of the couple's rented mansion in Long Island, New York: "He told her very clearly that he just can’t live with her anymore."

In response, Jolie has allegedly offered Pitt $90 million for custody of their kids. If we were Brad, we'd totally hold out for $91 million.

This is too bad. We were hoping to have more Shannon Funk in our lives.

A few hours after sources supposedly confirmed to Perez Hilton that Jamie Kennedy was cheating on Jennifer Love Hewitt with Britney Spears' former assistant and rumored lesbian lover, the actor isn't just shooting down the rumor.

He's taking action!

Said an insider of the false story, and Kennedy's subsequent firing of his employee:

"Jamie's assistant, Miguel, went nuts and started making s-it up. This is a David Spade situation, where the assistant gets jealous of the star's lifestyle and snaps. Miguel snapped and started texting Love late at night and just being a freak. Then he tried to take Jamie down by making s-it up. Jamie's lucky he didn't get tazered in his sleep by this guy!"

He's also lucky he gets to see this lovely lady nude any time he wants. Damn him.

Man, I'm Lucky!

Britney Spears wrapped up the U.S. leg of her Circus Tour last night in true Britney fashion.

No, she didn't shave her head, endanger any children or have an unfortunate wardrobe malfunction.

Instead, Spears invited a male audience member on stage and seduced him with a lap dance; this time, though, we doubt it took: the special guest, as seen below, was Lance Bass!

Britney and Lance

Bass got an eyeful during the singer's rendition of "Breathe on Me." Fans in attendance say he smiled and sang along throughout the song. Wrote Britney on her official website:

My good friend Lance surprised me on stage last night for Breathe On Me. It was soooo funny!  Good to see you Lance!

The night before, Miley Cyrus and Melanie Brown caught Britney's concert. Neither of them appeared on stage, though.

Next, the pop star likely heads to Starbucks tonight at 2 a.m. Then, she heads Down Under for a string of dates in Australia in November.

The Mackenzie Phillips story won't go away.

The former childhood star - who admitted to the world last week she carried on a long-term, sexual relationship with her father - appeared for the second time on Oprah last Friday and said she hopes she's setting a good example.

"I understand this is a difficult thing for my family," the recovering drug addict told Winfrey via satellite, "but nobody's talking about this, and if I've started a national dialogue, then I'm forever grateful."

Phillips has certainly started a dialogue, that's for sure.

Very Troubled

Half-sister Chynna Phillips is already on record, defending her sibling.

Now, Jessica Woods, the daughter of former Mamas & Papas band member Denny Doherty, has also taken her friend's side. She wrote in to Oprah and said her dad knew about the affair.

"I just watched your show," Woods wrote, "and everything she said is true. My dad told me the awful truth, and he was horrified at what John had done."

At this point, they're just inventing magazines for Robert Pattinson to pose for.

The actor covers the latest issue of AnOther Man, which sources verify is a British men's fashion publication.

Inside the issue, the Twilight Saga star says he was shocked by the success of the movie franchise.

“It’s strange because even though the figures show that the books were successful and sold millions of copies, you couldn’t even buy them in London. I tried a couple of bookshops and they weren’t available," Robert said, adding:

"Hardly anyone I knew had read them apart from one girl, a friend of my sister. I had no idea at all. I’d seen Kristen Stewart in Into the Wild and some of the director Catherine Hardwicke’s other films, and that’s all I thought it was, something really small.”

It's safe to say he was mistaken.

We've never heard of AnOther Man. But, hey, at least it's not fabricating cover stories, like certain American tabloids.

As for acting, Pattinson sounds as humble as ever in the interview, saying: “It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life... I don’t find any particular pleasure in being an attention-seeker.”

Ironically, that's exactly what he's become, due to smoldering good looks, a relationship with Stewart and a head of hair most men would commit murder for.
