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.

Clay Aiken won't be going on tour with Adam Lambert any time soon.

In fact, he may not even subscribe to Lambert's Twitter account!

When asked about the polarizing American Idol runner-up, Aiken (who is also gay and who also finished second during season three of the series) replied:

I only turn the show on once a season, and only to see what the set looks like each year. This year, I happened to turn it during the minute that Adam Lambert was singing “Ring of Fire” and, at that moment, thought my ears would bleed. Contrived, awful, and slightly frightening!

I wasn’t really a fan and found myself surprised whenever folks told me that they liked him. Granted, I never saw another performance (and many folks who I trust said that he was great) but I can’t imagine I would have enjoyed it. Just not my cup of tea at all. To each his own.

Are you on Team Clay or Team Lambert?

It was an afternoon of young, talented beauty at this week's CW upfront presentations.

Each spring, networks invite advertisers to an event that serves as the official launching party for its fall schedule. This is where deals are made and new shows are announced.

For The CW, a channel that aims to attract a less mature audience, it was the perfect time to showcase its array of up-and-coming stars.

Or Ashlee Simpson, who somehow has a role on the remade Melrose Place. Here's a shot of Mrs. Pete Wentz at the upfront ceremony:

Upfront and Center

Due to the success of Gossip Girl and 90210, The CW is more interested than ever in focusing on teenage soap operas.

Aside from the aforementioned remake of Melrose Place, look for The Beautiful Life on the network's fall schedule. It stars Mischa Barton and Corbin Bleu.

This weekend marks the unofficial start of summer. You know what that means, right?

Kim Kardashian can garner headlines by simply talking about wearing a bathing suit!

Holding All Her Kards

At an opening party for Dash, her new Miami boutique with sisters Khloe and Kourtney, Kim was asked by People about if her body was ready to be seen in a bikini.

"I feel great. I am ready for the bikini body," she said. "I am eating well and I go to the gym every day and I already see a difference."

Here's a preview of what fans can look forward to this summer from Kardashian. Click on the following pictures for larger images of this beauty in swimwear...

Fans and celebrities are still coming to grips with the fact that Adam Lambert is not the American Idol.

While Kris Allen is clearly an impressive talent, it's hard for critics not to wonder about the basis for his victory; namely, did it have anything to do with Lambert's presumed homosexuality?

American Idol Top 13

Here's a sampling of ways various critics have tackled that issue/asked that question:

  • The Chicago Tribune: "It's difficult not to wonder if Lambert's sexuality played a role in Allen's victory... If Lambert's popularity on Idol was any indication of how tolerant and accepting America has become, his loss may indicate there's still further to go."
  • Professional poker player Annie Duke: "I seriously think Adam lost just because he is gay. Bummed. Bummed. Bummed."
  • Examiner.com: "Adam was too gay for America."

What do you think of these arguments? Weigh in below...

Did Adam Lambert's sexual orientation cost him the American Idol crown?

According to reports, Cassidy is a male rapper.

He may also be a dead man, as random website Gyant Unplugged claims he's to blame for the demise of the relationship between Kanye West and Amber Rose.

Allegedly, with Kanye at work on Rihanna and Jay-Z’s albums in Hawaii, Cassidy has been taking a long whiff of West's Rose... if you know what we mean!

As Gyant Unplugged puts it: Word got back to Ye’ and he cancelled that chick I-M-M-E-D-I-A-T-E-L-Y!

Cassidy is denying any romantic involvement with Rose. But is that guy really to be trusted?!?

No one has fought this hard for Paula Abdul since the cartoon cat in the video for "Opposites Attract."

In an interview with Radar Online, Janice Thibodeaux - the nut job that attacked Simon Cowell's ex-girlfriend, Terri Seymour, on Monday night - provided a motive for her choke job:

“I wasn’t cool with Simon Cowell choking Paula Abdul on the show last week and with her crying-out ‘help’ as he did so,” Thibodeaux said.  “Nobody said anything about that so I wanted to confront him about it because that is not appropriate behavior, is it?”

Thibodeaux wasn't done fitting herself for a straight jacket explaining what happened:

“She was taking some photographs with her camera and I knew she was his girlfriend so I went up to her to tell her how I felt. We started arguing and then I put my hands around her neck and started choking her just like Simon had done with Paula. Then, I walked away and I was tackled by the police, but I don’t regret what I did because of what Simon did to Paula, nobody seemed to care about that.”

To paraphrase Britney Spears in "Womanizer:" You want crazy, folks? Janice Thibodeaux has got your crazy!

While readers debate whether or not they wanna see Bethenny Frankel nude, here's another question focused on The Real Housewife of New York City:

Do you wanna see her on Dancing on the Stars?

When asked if she'd be up for that competition, Frankel told E! News:

"It looks like a good challenge, so yes - yes, I would definitely do it."

But would she be encouraged, or discouraged, if Bethenny found herself up against show rival Kelly Bensimon on the DWTS floor?

"I love to dance and I think it would be so amazing," Kelly said. "It's out of the box for me, but I think it would be really fun."

Meanwhile, Aubrey O’Day seems to think she'd be as good at dancing as she is at posing naked:

"I hope they ask me to do it [because] I'll win it if I do it."

Kris Allen is your new American Idol.

Left speechless when Ryan Seacrest initially asked him how it felt, Allen continued to express utter consternation backstage.

"I felt shocked almost every week that I made it, and to be the American Idol, I’m completely shocked."

The champion also had nothing but kind words for fellow finalist Adam Lambert: "I feel like he deserves this just as much as I do. He’s an amazing performer, gifted guy and really just an amazing guy. It was fun doing this with him."

Where will Kris go from here, in terms of making an album?

"I think it’s pretty obvious that I’ve done a lot of the singer-songwriter, pop-rock kind of thing and that’s something I want to do."

Do you think Kris Allen is a worthy champion?

 

Lambert, meanwhile, isn't about to shed any tears over his second place finish.

"I felt so good. I got to sing with Queen and KISS!" he told OK!, reflecting on the two-hour finale. "First or second, it doesn’t matter to me; I got to sing with two great, heroic rock bands."

Photos from the New Moon set revealed Robert Pattinson and company hard at work.

Now, Life & Style is revealing secrets from the upcoming film's script.

Think you're familiar with the story of Edward and Bella in this follow-up to Twilight? Think again. On key plot points, the big screen adaption will differ greatly from the book. For example...

  • In the novel, Edward never actually appears; he's simply a voice in Bella's head. But, come on, the movie had to showcase Pattinson on screen.

Look for Edward to appear like an apparition in New Moon, a development that created concern for the actor: "I really wanted it to be a complete absence. It’s easier to give it more power at the end if I’m completely absent."

  • The movie will depict an action-filled scene that doesn't take place in the book, as Laurent fights back against the werewolves that destroy him in the original story.
  • Finally, in Stephenie Meyer's adventure, Edward says he'll turn Bella into a vampire only if they wed. In the film, however, he offers a different ultimatum. (You don't really wanna know every detail ahead of time, do you?!?)

What do you think of these changes, New Moon readers? Good? Bad? Or do you not care as long as you can stare at Robert Pattinson for two hours?

We're just over a month away from the most-publicized marriage of the summer between a former Playmate and a current NFL wide receiver.

On June 27, Kendra Wilkinson will walk down the aisle with Hank Baskett. The ceremony will take place at the Playboy Mansion.

Hendra Picture

In a new interview with E! News, Kendra - who is filming a reality show about the wedding planning, naturally - cleared up rumors that she has a problem with Hugh Hefner's replacement girlfriends, Crystal Harris and twins Karissa and Kristina Shannon. In fact, all three are on the guest list.

"They're cool," Kendra said. "I like them."

She also loves babies. Her and Hank "plan on having them very soon. We want to be young parents and be able to chase around our kids and run and coach our kids."

As for the gender of each child?

"We don't really care about that," she said. "We'll love whatever comes out of me."

Ironic. Hef used to tell Kendra the same thing in bed.
