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.

There may not have been a rose ceremony, and it may not have taken place in front of any TV cameras, but reports indicate that Melissa Rycroft has been proposed to once again.

On Friday night, according to The Dallas Morning News, Rycroft and boyfriend Tye Strickland showed up at Brio Tuscan Grille in Southlake, Texas. They were joined by a pair of older couples, rumored to be each side's parents.

This spring, Tye Strickland accompanied Melissa Rycroft to Dancing with the Stars training. Now, he'll accompany her to bed every night for the rest of their lives!

As a vase of fresh flowers sat on the table, whispers around the restaurant turned to the fact that Melissa and Tye got engaged earlier in the evening.

The newspaper cites sources that claim Rycroft was presented with a ring inside of a box that featured its own internal lighting (to make the diamond shine).

If this is true, the controversial Bachelor finale in March will have resulted in two happy endings: one for Rycroft and Strickland; and one for Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney, who are together and very much in love, according to THG insiders.

Turn away, Twilight fans!

In the photos below, Robert Pattinson is giving a large stuffed animal to a woman that is NOT Kristen Stewart!

** UPDATE: Phew. We're being told the woman in the following pictures is Emilie de Ravin and the images are courtesy of a movie she is filming with Pattinson, Remember Me.

It doesn't seem like Stewart has anything to worry about... unless certain reports from the film's set are to be believed. A witness told Life & Style:

"[Robert and Emilie] both seemed to be having a great time and looked genuinely happy to be working together."

This is causing extreme heartbreak for Stewart because, in the words of a Twilight insider: "Rob flirted with Kristen when they were filming, so she can't help but wonder what he's doing with Emilie."

Uh-oh. As you click on the pics below of Pattinson and de Ravin, let us know: Do you think these two are hooking up?

As the head judge on Dancing with the Stars, Len Goodman is tasked with handing out 10s to the best performances each week.

Following Goodman's recent admission that he's battling prostate cancer, though, allow us to reverse roles and deliver a top score to this brave dancing expert.

The 65-year old was diagnosed in March, but he told Britain's The Daily Mail that the disease was found early and, following surgery, he feels "right as rain."

Instead of removing the cancerous tumor immediately, Goodman actually continued his role on Dancing with the Stars for two months, critiquing Melissa Rycroft, Gilles Marini and others without showing any signs of the discomfort he was experiencing.

"I could have said 'sorry' and not done the show, but the doctors felt I wasn't riddled with it and it wasn't so far advanced that it was a life-or-death scenario," Goodman told th newspaper. "It takes a few weeks to get everything set up for the operation anyway, so I went ahead and did the show. I had the surgery done as soon as I got back from America."

Feeling fine, Goodman points to the major downside of his cancer scare.

"You can't play golf, which is the biggest blow at the moment."

Cat fights. Table flips. Cocaine-addicted kidnappers.

The first season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey had it all. Therefore, it comes as no shock that another round of episodes has been ordered for this Bravo series.

"They're doing a second season, and it's going to be crazier than the first," a source told Life & Style. "It's going to explode. There's no premiere date, but everyone knows it's going to be a huge hit. The reason it has taken so long to announce is that once the show became such a hit, the women held out for much bigger paychecks."

Meanwhile, the woman at the center of the show - and in the center of the photograph above - is Danielle Staub.

Host Andy Cohen referred to Staub as a "fascinating character" during a recent interview with OK! Magazine, adding that "she certainly had a rich life that has gone in many directions.”

That rich life, of course, includes a sex tape with former flame Stephen Zawelski and five years of probation in the late 1980s for her involvement in an extortion case. Referring to Danielle's relationship with the rest of the cast, Cohen said:

“Frankly, I don’t think any the women believe half or a third or a fifth of what she says... They ain’t having dinner any time soon! They ain’t having dinner ever!"

Will you be tuning in for another season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey?

Alex Michael had the accent; Andrew Firestone had the money; and Jason Mesnick had the abdominal muscles.

But as the latest star of a reality dating series, Luke Conley possesses something the aforementioned Bachelors lacked: a beer belly.

Conley, a former college football star and current real estate investor, will star in Fox's upcoming More to Love. The show follows the same rules and goals of The Bachelor, with one very noticeable twist: all involved could crush Mischa Barton with their pinky toes.

Indeed, Conley stands 6'3" and weighs over 300 pounds. All 20 of his suitors make the newly-rotund Kevin Federline look tiny.

According to a Fox press release, Conley is in the market for a woman who is "intelligent, passionate, down-to-earth, full-figured and comfortable in her own skin."

As past results indicate, he's sure to find that on reality TV.

Will you be tuning in for More to Love? Or do you think fat people don't deserve a chance to pretend to fall in love in front of countless television cameras?

That didn't take long.

Just days after her split with Nick Lachey, Vanessa Minnillo has reportedly moved, at least for a few hours on Saturday night.

According to sources at Radar Online, the former MTV VJ made out with with actor Topher Grace at Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane’s Los Angeles home over the weekend.

MacFarlane was hosting a party that included an outdoor casino, around which Minnillo and Grace were spotted flirting, whispering to one another and exchanging phone numbers.

From Nick Lachey to Topher Grace: Upgrade or downgrade for Vanessa Minnillo?

"Before long they were on the dance floor and putting the ‘dirty’ in dirty dancing," a witty witness said. "Vanessa took off her shoes and held them in one hand, wrapping her other arm around Topher’s neck and the next thing we knew she was kissing him on the neck! They [later] started making out right on the dance floor!”

Around 1:30 a.m. the pair left the party... together!

Somewhere, Lachey is penning the lyrics to his latest soul-crushing ballad. Sorry, dude.

Demi Lovato, thank goodness, is the anti-Paris Hilton. She doesn't party every night at clubs, she's never made a sex tape and, to the best of our knowledge, she loves to wear underwear.

But the Disney actress does have one thing in common with the most promiscuous of hotel heiresses: taste in fashion.

Hilton hit The Late Show with David Letterman in this Alexander Wang dress last week, while Lovato attended the Toronto premiere of Princess Protection Program in the same outfit.

Who wears it better?
