Kimberly Caldwell
Kimberly Caldwell
has been a familiar face in pop culture since she made the top 10 during the second season of 'American Idol' -- a season that produced Ruben Studdard, Clay Aiken and Kimberly Locke, among others. Since that time, the Texas native and former beauty pageant winner has released the occasional single and worked as an entertainment correspondent on various TV shows. Back in 1995, she also performed at the 50th wedding anniversary of former President George H. W. Bush and his wife Barbara.

Now, Caldwell is ready for her close-up. This spring, she will finally unveil her long-awaited debut album, 'Without Regret.' She worked on the disc with a number of music industry heavyweights. 'Without Regret' will be preceded by the new single 'Desperate Girls and Stupid Boys.' With a single that's made for radio, a strong personality and good looks, Kimberly Caldwell seems to have everything it takes to become a household name. PopEater recently caught up with her over coffee during her visit to New York City.
