David Cook American Idol Winner Apparently Has Proposed To Kimberly Caldwell.
Now this could be a load of bollocks as there is not much coverage of it. If it is true that these to American Idol contestants are engaged it would make them a reality TV couple in the league of Rob and Amber (from Survivor and The Amazing Race fame).

If You Want To Experience American Idol Go To Disney Orlando.
If you sing a little karaoke you may want to consider this. There is now an American Idol attraction at Disney in Orlando, Florida.

Hopefuls will go through the audition process and perform in front of a live crowd, just like their favorite contestants on the TV show.

Wannabes will sing for a Disney’s Hollywood Studios producer for the chance to be cast in a theme-park show.

The person with the most votes will compete in an end-of-day Grand Finale show at Walt Disney World, and the winner of the Grand Finale show will receive a guaranteed reservation for a future regional stadium audition.

I think I will just stick to It’s A Small World After All ride.

Are we dredging up THAT tidbit again?? Where is your info coming from, as that has been denied a few times. In fact, she has been virtually unseen for weeks.
And ikf he did, his business. Mustn’t be much ‘news’ this week…..

Anon are you talking about the Kimberley and David Cook engagement rumour?

As you can see all reality tidbits have a source just click it.

I think I mention that this rumour is probably bollocks, as normally if something like this occurs my google alerts go crazy.

But if you are high profile and your partner is high profile chances are people do want to know about it. Even if they don’t like it. Should celebritries who court publicity shamelessly when they are flogging something, like a record or a movie, be able to control ALL the information the general public have about them?

The irony is that here in Australia not many people would even know who David Cook was as American Idol is show on pay tv, and even less would know who Kimberley is as that season was never shown down under.
