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.

American Idol announced its season eight premiere date this week - circle your calendar for January 13, fans! - but the focus is still largely on the show's most recent winner, David Cook.

He releases his debut album on November 18 and has been spotted out with girlfriend Kimberly Caldwell. Life ain't shabby for the crooner.

Cooked

Regarding fame since his American Idol victory, Cook recently told Entertainment Weekly:

"I still feel like that awkward musician; I think I always will. That's a huge component of me staying kind of humbled and grounded about the whole thing: I get the flimsiness of it. I get that it could all go away...I've got guys that I'm playing with that I love to death, and I'm playing music that I think we all really get into, and as long as we've got that and a place to play, I'm good."

Gwyneth Paltrow, who starred in Iron Man over the summer, would have been better off sporting a dress made from that metal than the monstrosity she donned during a public appearance earlier this week.

Unsure whether to cover her lingerie or not, the actress did the next worst thing: she donned an outfit that appeared to expose her negligee. Yikes.

What do you think of Gwyneth Paltrow's dress?

Earlier today, it was announced that Kendra Wilkinson is engaged to Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Hank Baskett.

We're happy for the large-breasted model and sure-handed receiver, but we have some advice for them, as well: sprint down the aisle!

Hank Baskett shows impressive concentration by keeping his eyes on the football... despite an attempt by fiancee Kendra Wilkinson to distract her man.

This pairing is the latest in a long line of athlete/celebrity hook-ups, as sports stars such as Derek Jeter have made a second career out of dating various celebs; while future Hall of Famers, such as Tom Brady, have been spotted with the same (gorgeous!) girlfriend for months.

Will Kendra and Hank be the first to actually make it to the altar?

You tell us. Chime in now and let us know which of these couples is most likely to become man and wife:

It looks like Kim Kardashian nude photos aren't the only thing from this celebrity we support.

In her latest official blog entry, the former Dancing with the Stars contestant shares the views of most on The Hollywood Gossip staff: she's thrilled about the election of Barack Obama, while dismayed over the results of an initiative on the California ballot...

I was a supporter from the start! I have to say, I am beyond thrilled that Barack Obama was elected and I am looking forward to witnessing all of the historic change that his Presidency promises!

The election wasn't all thrills for me, however. I have been holding my breath today, hoping that California's Prop 8 (which bans gay marriage) would not pass. But, unfortunately it has. I hear it is being challenged in the courts by civil rights groups and I’m hopeful our legal system will find Prop 8 unjust.

Kim Kardashian loves Barack Obama, but hates those against gay marriage.

... and, because it was caught on camera, we're sure Tila Tequila liked it!

Sorry, Mac Guy, but the self-proclaimed bisexual was photographed locking lips with in front of the Crown Bar in Los Angeles last night.

A source claims this is Tila "latest lover." We give the relationship six hours.

She Kissed a Girl!

On this night, some random chick earned a shot at a staged kiss love with Tila Tequila.

The Philadelphia Eagles better prepare to be without Hank Baskett and his 278 receiving yards for the rest of the season.

After all, now that reports are confirming the receiver's engagement to Playboy model Kendra Wilkinson, he's destined to join Tom Brady, Tony Romo and Reggie Bush as injured NFL stars that happen to be dating celebrities.

If you can consider Kendra a celebrity, that is.

A BASKETT CATCH: Kendra Wilkinson is reportedly engaged to Hank Baskett.

Baskett reportedly popped the question in Seattle this weekend, asking for Wilkinson's huge boobs hand in marriage atop the Space Needle. Both families were present for the proposal, as a close friend of Kendra has simply said: "It's true."

The Eagles proceeded to defeat the Seahawks, 26-7. Baskett caught one pass for 25 yards.

Less than a week after undergoing surgery for endometriosis, Julianne Hough wants to return to Dancing with the Stars. The beauty told People Magazine that “[I'm] feeling phenomenal. I am still walking slow but I’m feeling good.”

Hough's doctor has said his patient needs about another week of rest, however, which at least means more time in bed with Chuck Wicks.

The country singer is Julianne's lucky boyfriend and she said he “got to see me at my lowest point. You can really tell when someone loves you because they mean it. They are not just taking care of you because you need it, they WANT to take care of you. He’s a sweetheart.”

Seen here with Julianne Hough, partner Cody Linley says he misses her so much and that "she's my best friend."

Meanwhile, as Hough recuperates and plans her comeback, Susan Lucci bid the show farewell last night. She was eliminated from the competition.

“I feel so much gratitude for the opportunity to have this particular experience in my lifetime," said the All My Children actress. "I want to thank all you wonderful audience members here, the fans…and most importantly i need to thank this dancer, this incredible teacher, this incredible man, Tony Dovolani.”

Those Jonas brothers are such heart breakers.

Earlier this week, Miley Cyrus made her feelings about Nick Jonas known.

Now, Taylor Swift - in a far more mature manner - is speaking out about her recent break up with Joe Jonas.

The singer told n Ryan Secrest (on the host's KIIS-FM radio show) yesterday that she penned the song "Always and Forever" about Joe.

Joe Jonas blew his chance to catch kisses from Taylor Swift.

"I've written about [the split], and I write about my life... that's just how I deal with things. It's tough and it's been tough," Swift said, subsequently elaborating on the reasons why her and Jonas didn't work out:

"If they're not allowed to go in public with me [because their management feels they're too much of a sex symbol]... that's an issue."

Sorry, fellas, but Taylor concluded the interview by saying that she isn't yearning to fall for anyone new: "I'm trying to shake it off. I'm not ready to jump in to anything with anybody. It wouldn't be fair to them. I'm not looking to find someone to fill a void."

If only all celebrities were as candid as Simon Cowell.

The American Idol judge spoke to Fox News about his recent break up with Terri Seymour. A couple excerpts:

On the opposite sex: “I find women confusing really. When you hook up and date, you’re both honest about what you want. I have never ever said that I want children or marriage. I know some people find it hard to fathom, but it’s me, it’s who I am.”

On work: “Bottom line is I am married to my job. When people moan about been a celebrity, I think ‘Oh please, sort yourself out – it’s the greatest job in the world.’ I wake up daily thanking my lucky stars, but to throw marriage into that mix is not right. I have seen too many celebrity marriages that on paper make a great mix, fall apart through ego and just plain celebrity madness.”
