While on tour with his fellow “American Idol” finalists, Paul McDonald sat down on “The Ralphie Radio Show” to talk about his band, The Grand Magnolias, and his engagement to Breaking Dawn‘s star Nikki Reed.
Not only is she freshly engaged (to American Idol’s Paul McDonald), but now Nikki Reed is thinking about heading back to school once promotion for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn films ends. Here’s what she told E! Online:
“I really want to do some theater and go back to school,” she said. “I want to go back for back for business and marketing,” she explained. “I have a business-oriented mind and my brother is taking a marketing class right now and I think it’s something I really want to do.”
But with a fiancé like Mr. McDonald, she may have trouble getting any schoolwork done. Reed says he’s constantly singing to her. “He was signing to me the entire time I was getting ready today,” she gushed. “Most people would be like, ‘It’s enough. Put down the guitar!’ I’m like, ‘Listen, if you want to sit on the couch and drink a beer and play guitar all day every day, I encourage it.’”
Those of you who keep up on American Idol know that Paul McDonald was sent packing last night, but he still has lots to smile about. According to E! Online, Paul has admitted that he and Breaking Dawn starlet, Nikki Reed, are dating:
“Yes, me and Nikki are dating. It’s officially true,” Paul told us Friday morning. “She’s super cool. She’s super smart, so I’m happy with it. We’ve been hanging out here and there. We’re both pretty busy, but it been fun so far.”
When asked if Nikki is bummed about his elimination, Paul laughed and said, “I’m pretty sure Nikki is a pretty big fan, but she’s super cool.”
