Katrina "Bikini" Darrell advances to the next round of American Idol.
As judge DioGuardi discovered, as a woman, it's hard to criticize another good-looking woman without seeming jealous or vengeful. In DioGuardi's defense, she was trying to keep the judges' decisions from focusing on Darrell's hot bod instead of her mediocre voice. But, really, why shouldn't regular folks be a little bit angry at the beautiful people of the world? Studies show that things—like jobs and free cab rides—come easier to those with good looks. Men, in particular, can't help falling for physical beauty, but a great set of eyes or abs are not lost on ladies, either. (Did Obama's good looks help him get elected?)
David Cook & Kimberly Caldwell breakup and Kara DioGuardi is engaged.
David Cook is officially single. The American Idol Season 7 winner had been dating Kimberly Caldwell since almost before he defeated the pint-sized hurricane David Archuleta. But that's over. What can we expect from David Cook in the future? No one knows. But we do know that he won't be dating new judge Kara DioGuardi because she engaged to a dude named Mike McCuddy.
Alexandra Burke will not be meeting her American idol, Chris Brown, for some time.
Alexandra Burke won X-Factor (an American Idol - like show in the UK). While filming the talent show, she talked a big, old game about how much she dug Chris Brown. And now that she's famous, someone is preventing her from meeting Chris Brown. We hope his best bud Rihanna figures out who it is and asks him (or her) to knock it off.
Connie Seacrest makes us appreciate Mamma's Boy a little more.
It seems as if Ryan Seacrest's show Mamma's Boy may have been borne from a very personal place. His mom, Connie Seacrest, wants the American Idol host to find a nice girl to settle down with. But she has very strong opinions about what the girl will be like. Hmm.
Simon Cowell and Terri Seymour over-the-phone and he's off women now.
American Idol master Simon Cowell has suffered a breakup from lady friend Terri Seymour. Rumor has it that she broke up with him via text message after he purchased a new home for her (it's like Clue!). Now he's off women, generally feeling sorry for himself and fishing for compliments. How the smug have fallen.
The Dream Girls star's getting married and is Alicia Keys creeping?
Jennifer Hudson recently got engaged to reality star David Otunga. You my recognize him from I Love New York 2. Good times but a little out-of-line of the Hollywood food chain. Additionally, rumor has it that Alicia Keys has been too close with Swizz Beatz for his estranged wife's liking.
What do The Jonas Brothers, Miley Cyrus, and Jordin Sparks all have in common? None of them are getting laid. According to each of the stars, they are A-okay with it. In fact, they’re promoting their virginity by sporting the ever-so-trendy purity rings, which stand for abstinence. (I wonder if Bristol Palin was wearing hers before she got knocked up?)
Carrie Underwood says dating is tough. Adrian Grenier is single. Is Aniston?
Carrie Underwood describes the difficulty of dating while a celebrity. Trust is tough. So is lack of privacy. On that note, Adrian Grenier and Isabel Lucas split. And what about Jennifer Aniston and John Mayer? Hmm.
Singer Jewel has secretly married long-time boyf Ty Murray. The 2 have been dating for 10 years and tied the not during the week in the Bahamas. And American Idol's Clay Aiken wasn't fakin'. His friend Jaymes Foster gave birth to their son today. Good news all the way around, ya'll.
Selena Gomez is the latest celeb to just say no to sex before marriage.
Selena Gomez is a minor star in the Disney universe who is hoping to go supernova like Zac Efron and Hilary Duff. In what seems like a response to the recent "sex" scandals (that involved no sex, mind you) that have plagued fellow tween celebrities like Miley Cyrus and Vanessa Hudgens, Gomez is speaking out on her desire to stay chaste. Says the 15 year star of The Wizards of Waverly Place even went so far as to ask her dad for a promise ring
