As American Idol glitters into its seventh season, the cultural craze just gets more complex. With the Hollywood writers’ strike wiping out scripted prime-time programming, the reality series may be an even greater ratings juggernaut than in the past seasons.

Brooke White told and revealed to us that her most embarrassing moment was when she was in the church and she hugged the wrong person! “That was really embarrassing! I thought he was my dad!

“I guess I should not say my secret!” said David, but we pleaded him to say his secret and he told us that word “Nerd!”

I’m probably going to go back to school for nursing ’cause I had to stop.”
