If you do the math on the American Idol Live! tour, it looks something like this: 53 performances in 49 cities over 72 days adds up to no love life. But as David Cook gets ready to board the bus, he's not worried about the damper it may put on his relationship with former American Idol contestant Kimberly Caldwell. "I get to do what I love and love what I do, so no, it doesn't put a damper on anything," he told TV Guide between rehearsals and wardrobe fittings. "Kim's great," Cook continued. "She's got a little bit of insight on it which definitely helps."The two met as Caldwell interviewed Cook on the TV Guide Network before his final performance on Idol, and if there's anyone familiar with the Fox series' freight train and understanding of its demands, it's the Season 2 songstress. "We seem to compliment each other really well," says Cook. "She's very supportive, and not only with me but with my entire family, which is huge. She's great." Looks like Idol plus Idol equals a perfect... read more

What's that sound? Why, it's the broken hearts of tens of thousands of female fans.

"She's great," Cookie tells TV's Extra. "So far, I've had a really good time with her." (Watch video of Cook telling Regis & Kelly about his and Kim's first date.)Cook admitted that while he knew Kimberly herself vied on Idol (during Season 2), "I can't remember a song that she sang.

Kimberly Caldwell, TV Guide Network

To kick off the ninth season of Big Brother (which premieres Tuesday, Feb. 12, at 9 pm/ET), CBS invited eight members of the media to experience life in the house for 12 hours. We sent TV Guide Network's Kimberly Caldwell, cohost of Idol Tonight and Reality Chat. Here, the former American Idol finalist shares her experience.

What's gonna happen to me? I mean, I really like watching the show, but I don't want to be one of those people! Do I? But I got it together and went and, naturally, over­packed.
