Suburbarazzi Week in Review on RNN: EXCLUSIVE chat with ‘American Idol’ star Kimberley Locke03.25.08

Why would a celebrity choose North Salem as a place to live and open a restaurant? What’s a downside to living with Clay Aiken? And what does it feel like to know you’ll be singing your new song on the “American Idol” stage during this week’s results show?

These questions in an exclusive Suburbarazzi interview with “Idol” contestant Kimberley Locke were the ones to make the cut for tonight’s extra-special segment on RNN. Later this week, we’ll post my uncut interview, including a reference to Kim’s stint on “Celebrity Fit Club.” (Although that version will be uncut, don’t exactly expect a Jerry Springer routine from Kim and me, though. We’re not like that. On camera, anyway.)
