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.

On professional football's most exciting weekend, sad news out of the NFL today:

Chicago Bears defensive end Gaines Adams died this morning. The 26-year old was taken to a Greenwood, South Carolina emergency room and pronounced dead at 9 a.m EST, according to the county coroner.

Preliminary autopsy results indicate that Adams died of cardiac arrest caused by an enlarged heart.

The 6-foot-5, 256-pound lineman played in college at Clemson and was drafted by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the first round of the 2007 NFL draft. He was traded to the Bears in October.

In 47 career games, Adams had 67 tackles and 13.5 sacks. Our thoughts are with his friends and family.

Since The Simple Life went off the air, Paris Hilton has mostly stayed out of our lives.

Sure, she pops up occasionally and threatens to marry Doug Reinhart, but Paris is no longer a go-to celebrity gossip source. Her aunts soon will be, however.

Pandora and Lisa Vanderpump

Multiple sources confirm that Kim and Kyle Richards will star on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, the next chapter in this nauseating Bravo franchise. They'll likely be joined by restaurant owner Lisa Todd.

When asked by E! News if she'd be appearing on the series, Kim (a twice-divorced 45-year-old and mother of four) said: "Possibly... I'm on a really tight gag order so I can't say anything else."

Kyle, who is married and has four daughters, is no stranger to reality TV. She's appeared on both The Simple Life and her niece's desperate search for My New BFF.

Said an insider, who confirmed this casting, to Radar Online: “Lisa, Kim and Kyle are all hideously wealthy. They live in these amazing houses, drive beautiful cars, live these fabulous lives and spend money like it’s going out of fashion."

Who wouldn't wanna watch this trio flaunt its wealth?!?

This, so far... all of the cities... best vocal we've seen yet. You've got skills. This kid is hot! This is the real deal right here.

So said Randy Jackson to Jermaine Sellers on American Idol last week.

Sellers, who hails from Illinois, possessed more than just incredible vocal talent on the show. Prior to his audition in Atlanta, viewers learned of his heart-breaking, impressive personal story:

Since he was 17, Jermaine has take care of his mother, who suffers from spina bifida, a birth defect of the spine that can lead to paralysis of the lower limbs.

What else do we know about this potential finalist? According to his MySpace page:

  • Starting at age 14, Sellers has signed a number of record deals. However, he's never produced a finished album.
  • He's performed on Royal Caribbean cruises.
  • Last year, he appeared on the BET talent show "Sunday Best." He finished third on the competition.
  • He writes that his motto is: "No trial, no triumph." 

As one of the most interesting singers to nab a golden ticket to Hollywood, we'll be keeping our eye on Sellers. We recommend you do the same.

When two global icons sit down for a televised chat Tuesday afternoon, we can now confirm one topic of discussion:

Adam Lambert and Oprah Winfrey will talk about Simon Cowell's departure from American Idol. How does the singer feel about that news?

“The audience will definitely miss Simon,” he said. “The contestants will miss out on really honest criticism. Sometimes it can be a little personal, and I know other contestants took it to heart sometimes and got really stressed out about what he would say. [But] I think that that’s important to making you a better performer."

  • Nice Nails
  • Big O

But, don't worry American Idol fans, Lambert says the show will most definitely go on... and one.

“Ultimately, after the first couple weeks of auditions, the audience tunes in every week for the contestants. [Audiences] grow fond of one or a couple of the people and they get behind them and they’re invested in them... we tune in to hear the contestants blossom or not.”

Adam will also perform the single "Whataya Want From Me" on the show. You can watch its official music video NOW.

Wow. Someone is actually on Team Jay!

In an interview with The New York Times, NBC executive Dick Ebersol referred to Conan O'Brien's run on The Tonight Show as an "astounding failure" and said:

"I like Conan enormously personally. He was just stubborn about not being willing to broaden the appeal of his show."

Fair enough. But might a problem also have been related to NBC's unfair, ridiculous decision to air The Jay Leno Show at 10 p.m. every night? Also based in Los Angeles, that program siphoned A-listers from The Tonight Show because it aired first.

Conan Pic

Ebersol said he met with Conan three weeks prior to his move to 11:35 p.m. and urged him to alter his approach in order to reach more viewers, but the host refused. O'Brien's reps confirm that a meeting took place between the sides.

As for the shots David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel and company are taking at Jay Leno?

"[It's] chicken-hearted and gutless to blame a guy you couldn't beat in the ratings," Ebersol told the newspaper. "They're just striking out at Jay. It seems like professional jealousy."

And that seems like complete and utter BS from a guy that's in charge of a dying network and desperate to defend his job.

New Moon mania is about to start up again.

Granted, it might not be as wild this time around, but a release date has been announced for the Twilight sequel on DVD: it will hit stores on March 20.

New Moon DVD

In a statement, Summit Entertainment explains the unusual move of releasing a new DVD on a Saturday:

"The Twilight Saga: New Moon will be released on a Two-Disc Special Edition DVD and Special Edition Blu-ray on March 20, 2010 - a Saturday street date that will allow for fans across the nation to celebrate at retailer's midnight release parties before taking home the film at 12:01 a.m."

Director Chris Weitz, meanwhile, says the DVD will have "about ten minutes of groovy stuff [fans] haven't seen."

Don't worry, Chris. As long as it has Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner shirtless, this thing will sell well.

We'll start by shooting down a rumor making its way around the Internet:

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth are not engaged! Witnesses apparently spied a diamond ring on the singer's finger, contacted a celebrity gossip site and talk began to surface that the Australian actor had proposed to the 17-year old.

Going to the Club

This is not true. But might it be soon?

An insider told E! News that Cyrus does see herself "marrying young." Moreover, she's "totally in love" and has told people in her life that Liam is "the one." (Sorry, Nick Jonas and Justin Gaston, we hope you aren't reading this.)

Adding fuel to this engagement fire? Sources state that Miley and Liam now live together in the Cyrus family home.

Might marriage really be that far behind? Should Miley wait a few years before she settles down? And can Noah Cyrus please stop singing about getting crunked?!?

Those are the questions. What are your answers, readers?

Have Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake broken up?

It doesn't sound like it, based on the former's interview with the latest issue of Vogue. But don't ask Biel for many details on her relationship with the sexy singer.

"I don't want to talk about it," she tells the magazine. "I don't feel the need to clear anything up. It's the most precious thing that I have in my life, and I care about it so much that I don't care about what anyone says or thinks. I have just not addressed it in any real way, and I'm not going to. It's mine. And I really like that about it."

Darn Biel for being so... mature and reasonable. What are we supposed to write about now?!?

Vogue Cover

What's it been like to read about rumored break-ups and problems between her and her man?

"It's definitely been weird and sort of bizarre to deal with," Biel said. "But you have to have a sense of humor about the whole thing. Honestly, I look at a magazine and they know more than I do."

Turns out, other events involving the actress actually far more interesting and impressive than her dating life:

Jessica recently scaled all 19,340 feet og Mt. Kilimanjaro with a group of climbers, including Emile Hirsch, to raise awareness of the global water crisis. Way to go, people!

First, Brangelina stepped up.

Now, many other celebrities are coming through with donations to those affected by the massive earthquake in Haiti this week.

Gisele Bündchen "was so moved, she knew she had to do what she could to help," a source said of the model. So she's donated $1.5 to the relief efforts, as over 100,000 people are reported dead following the 7.0 quake.

Madonna has also given $250,000 to the cause, while Wyclef Jean (a native of Haiti) is raising money for the victims.

Gorgeous George

"We have to raise a million dollars a day. In four or five days, this whole country is going to be in chaos," Jean said on Fox's Special Report with Bret Baier. "We are calling for a state of emergency. Please, President Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton – we have to do something for this country."

Meanwhile, George Clooney will host a special telethon on January 22. It will raise funds for the battered Caribbean nation and be carried simultenously on ABC, NBC, CBS, The CW, HBO and CNN.

How can you play a role in this nation's recovery? There are many organizations to which you can donate, but we recommend the American Red Cross. Anything you can afford will help.
