This Week In Idol Chatter

A mother in Indianapolis was so wrapped up in last week's American Idol results show that she left her two young daughters alone in the bathtub where one almost drowned.

Sheila Brooks was watching the episode with her oldest daughters, ages 7 and 5 while her younger girls, ages 3 and 1 were in the tub. The results, (which weren't even shocking to most people) must have greatly captivated Brooks because she forgot her young daughters were in the bath unattended. When she realized her error, she didn't run in to check on the girls herself, instead she sent the 7-year-old in to do a spot check. When the young girl noticed her sister submerged in the water, she called for help. Luckily Mom was willing to tear herself away long enough to do get her daughter to the hospital.

Luckily the 3-year-old is okay and in protective custody with the rest of her sisters. Brooks hasn't been charged with anything yet, but between the neglect and marijuana paraphernalia police found in her home, she won't be scott free for long. At least they get Fox in jail.
