Kimberley Locke answered a few fan questions on her blog at My Space (@kimberleylocke) on Sunday (December 7).The singer was asked by one if she kept in regular touch with any other contestants from her season of ‘American Idol’, or if she’s become close with any other season’s ‘Idol’ alums.We lived together, but some things transpired and, you know, we’re just — I don’t really talk to Clay anymore. Born Kimberley Dawn Locke on January 3, 1978, in Hartsville, Tennessee, a small town not far from Nashville.Next thing I knew, he had me on Farmers Only – that’s right, my entree into online dating started there.
I used to joke some about the women I’d see at Sam’s Club in Topeka when I lived there for three months a couple years back.And the women who’ve been at this a while play their cards close to the vest.So it’s not like just bumping into someone at a store or on the street, chatting for a few, then meeting for coffee or a drink later. By far most of the women on these sites are frightfully unattractive.Because once you start clicking on and sizing up all these women and wondering about their geography – like I have this crush on a woman I accidentally clicked on in Michigan – then trying to closely examine as many pics as possible to get past carefully cropped, flattering photos designed to conceal any tragic flaws, the hours can literally fly by. I’ve not signed up for Match – my ex-wife’s on that one if you’re interested in dragging to Topeka – but from what I’ve seen the aesthetic quality of the women there appears far superior to most others sites.This whole game started for me a month or so back for me when I was joking with Rob Kiefer of Kief’s Audio Video about him living in Tonganoxie and what the dating scene there must be like.It was put out there my me, who conceived the touring idea and called my friends for their involvement.If Clay had chosen to return my phone calls over the last two months, he would perhaps not feel as ‘unfortunate’, and he would have been made aware that I mentioned it to Billboard.”Just last month, Locke talked about the fallout of the 2007 incident, telling Access correspondent Laura Saltman at a rehearsal for the 2008 ‘American Idol Holiday Tour’: “Clay and I aren’t really friends anymore.tour, which played in 44 cities across the United States.She was a five-time junior vocalist winner on Star Search, and she also performed at the Grand Ole Opry.And nobody in the dating pool who is halfway attractive seems to be in any hurry to branch out into emailing or giving out phone numbers, let alone making actual human contact.And it can be an all too time consuming game to play for newbies like me.
