Entertainment behind the scenes
Kristy Lee Cook may have lost her beloved horse in her attempt to become the “American Idol” but she left the show this week with a marriage proposal.
Cook, 24, who won hearts by selling her horse to get to the “Idol” auditions last summer, said her long time boyfriend popped the question on Wednesday night’s TV show when she was voted off the competition.
He followed it up with a second more public declaration on April 16 elimination night. “It was really cool. He re-enacted the proposal and actually got down on one knee because the first time he didn’t. He owed it to me,” Cook said, with a laugh.
