On tonight's American Idol
roundup, it's all about relationships, relationships and, well, relationships -- just in case you didn't get the message from the title.
Relationship number one: season 5 finalist Kellie Pickler, who's getting engaged to songwriter Kyle Jacobs.
"It turned out to be the most amazing day of my life," she told People
about the proposal, which was on June 15 -- the birthday of her grandmother, who raised her -- at a Florida beach. "My whole world changed. We both feel like we got my grandmother's blessing." The two met more than two years ago through friends.
Relationship number two: engaged couple Carrie Underwood and NHL star Mike Fisher.
There's new talk about wedding details
, with a date reportedly set for July 10 -- smack in the middle of a break in Carrie's concert tour. Life & Style
magazine also reports that the honeymoon will be somewhere in the South Pacific, although she's leaving it all to her fiance.
(Rumored) relationship number three: Ryan Seacrest and Dancing with the Stars' Julianne Hough
, who are apparently taking one more step closer to making it official. "Things have gotten more serious over the last month," a source told People
. The two have been spotted together over the past weeks but have kept mum (naturally) over the whole thing.
One last item that doesn't have anything to do with relationships -- and something that'll make folks like me happy: season 8's Megan Joy is close to signing a record deal.
