In Touch Weekly says it has confirmed that the once "fairy-tale romance" of American Idol "stars" Kimberly Caldwell and David Cook is kaput. A rep for Kimberly confirms, "Kimberly and David ended their relationship just before the holidays. The couple remain good friends and being very private people, appreciate their privacy at this time."
OMG, "appreciate their privacy at this time"? Did somebody die? We're talking about a 7-month dating relationship. Get over yourselves. Besides, David's already filled the hole in his heart with his new Scottie pup, Dublin.
Anyway, judging from the recent photo above courtesy of TMZ, David is balling instead of bawling.
GINA GLOCKSEN, MARRIED AND RECORDING
On New Year's Eve, season six finalist Gina Glocksen married her longtime beau, Joe Ruzicka. In attendance as bridesmaids were co-contestants Jordin Sparks and Haley Scarnato. Glocksen, 24, wore an ivory and silver strapless mermaid-style Melissa Sweet dress purchased from Priscilla of Boston. She wore her hair down and accessorized with a veil she borrowed from the niece of "Idol's" piano player. The eight bridesmaids wore strapless, champagne, knee-length dresses, also from Priscilla of Boston, and carried small bouquets of burgundy roses. Ruzicka, 32, and his groomsmen wore gray morning suits with ascots.
The NVHS String Quartet performed the music at the ceremony. Jason Mraz’s “I’m Yours” was the accompaniment as the bridal party walked down the aisle, followed by "With or Without You" by U2 as Glocksen was escorted by both her mother and father.
Sparks blogged about the wedding on her MySpace site:
"But as the church doors opened, and she was standing there staring at the man she loved, I couldn't help but cry. The sparkle that was in her eye was undeniable. She never took her eyes off him. Not once. That in itself was amazing. And the fact that these two phenomenal people found each other...was breathtaking.
After a couple tears, some wedding photos, and numb feet, we were off to the reception. And that's where the party started. Actually, no, it started on the bus. THAT'S where it started. Anyway, it was beautiful. Tons of friends and family, great dinner, and "clinking of glasses". But, you know Gina, she likes things different, instead of 'clinking', the whole table had to stand up and sing a love song! You guys know how that went. Lots of singing. I sang Gina and Joe's first dance. No pressure right!?! I sang a version of I Wanna Hold Your Hand, and they were in their own little world. Gliding across the floor like they were the only ones there. And to them, they were. Gina danced with her father to My Girl, sang by Jay and Sharlotte (one of the backrounds on AI). Then Gina got up and sang I Hope You Dance for Joe and his mom. I cried...again. I missed hearing her sing.
After dinner, some toasts, and a very entertaining slideshow. The wedding was over and the New Years party started. It was a blast! Joe's band Then Again played. Everyone was on the dance floor within seconds! It continued like that until it was time to countdown. Then...BAM!!!! It was 2009."
Meanwhile, Glocksen talks about her new single, "My List of Regrets," on her Web site. About the song's title, she says:
"No, not literally a list of my regrets. . . it's my NEW SONG! I am so excited about this one. I think you are really going to be blown away and maybe even a little bit surprised by it. It started out as a goofy little keyboard lick, but my AMAZING producer (Adam) turned it into a heart-pounding mesh of rock and techno. Can I give you one bit of advice? Turn it up because you have to listen to this one LOUD!
I'm planning on releasing 'List of Regrets' as my FIRST SINGLE on itunes within the month. If you haven't signed up on my email list, please do so I can send you word when it is available. If you like the song please spread the love and tell your friends to check it out. That's all for now. Hope you LOVE IT!"

KELLIE PICKLER, BABY, IT'S COLD OUTSIDE
Elsewhere on New Year's Eve, Kellie Pickler rung in 2009 with Ryan Seacrest and Dick Clark as a roving crowd reporter on ABC's "New Year's Rockin' Eve." Pickler did an admirable job and earns props for sticking it out in Times Square's strong winds and frigid temperature, which dropped down into the teens that evening.
