David Cook: Love Is in the Hair

David Cook is going out of his way to not discuss girlfriend Kimberly Caldwell lately, but for an idea of how serious they are, look no further than his head of hair. The Idol champ is featuring a new hair style after switching to Caldwell’s regular stylist. Caldwell even oversaw the most recent Cook haircutting adventure at the Luxelab in Santa Monica last week. “Kimberly was giving him pointers,” says a source. According to the source, Caldwell sat in the salon chair next to Cook’s, consulting with the stylist and David. “She was very hands on, very involved,” the source says. When not on hair patrol, the pair were affectionate to each other the entire time they were there. “They were pretty lovely-dovey, always touching,” says the source. “Kimberly was picking pieces of stray hair off of his face, and shoulders.” Under Caldwell’s guidance, Cook received a cut and color that was “edgier, darker, and more up to date.” The final result brought a squeal of delight from Caldwell, with the insider saying, “She seemed to be quite happy with the new look.” — Reagan Alexander

I don’t care who he dates as long as she’s at least a level 7 in personality and kims not even a 3. Maybe a high 2 for her acting ability!

I’m happy that he’s happy, but I don’t like Caldwell very much…she seems like she should be in her mid-30’s, not mid-20’s, and her clothing is exactly up to date, either.

Those are superficial judgments, so I don’t really know about her, but I don’t really like her from what I’ve seen.

I voted for him repeatedly and this dating thing disappoints me. I expected him to be a man’s man and concentrate on his career for now. I thought he could handle the music scene without getting influenced by it. Be more like Carrie Underwood..she’s handled herself amazingly well.

Leave him alone! David was just lonely! He’ll realize he jumped the gun with this girl soon.

Not only does David have great hair, but he’s just an amazing artist and a great guy and I wish him the best!

This is not about him making bad choices! He knows her from her friends and co workers. There not about to bad mouth her. She definetly is putting on an act around him. This is his lesson to learn and it’s better he learns it early than later when it could cost him alot more!

I am actually glad in away that he’s dating her. I am 27 and during his music of the night week on A.I. I actually skipped a date just because I couldn’t wait to see him on ddr later that night! It was to say the least pathetic! I was getting obsessed with my crush and before that I hadn’t had a crush on any star since I was 16. He was way to perfect but with this lapse in judgement I can know move on with my life! I do hope he doesn’t get hurt or taken advantage though he still pretty talented and great just not on a pedalstal!

If kim wanted people to like her why does she act that way on tv. I don’t think anyone would purposly make themself so obnoxious on tv when they have a career their trying to get of the ground! Hasn’t he ever seen her on tv and noticed she’s different than she is around him! That has to be her we see it’s not like it’s a drama and her part is acting odd, it’s a reality show! If you ask me davids’ not the only one blinded, I think the tv guide channel is also! I don’t care if it is just a reality show!

Who asked who out? It seems to me that David has suddenly had the floodgates open and can ask out anyone he wants, something he is not at all used to. Although his nickname, which led to a tattoo, was “heartthrob”, it seems he wasn’t too sure of himself with the ladies. Having been there, done that with AI, maybe she’s giving him good advise. Give them both a break, it’s their lives, they’ll figure it out.
