Carrie Underwood in Love
“Do not look at me!” Carrie Underwood orders a small group of onlookers as she struts past. “What did I tell you? Don’t look at the artist!”
We’re backstage at Live with Regis and Kelly, watching Carrie do her best impression of a bitchy celebrity — the key word being impression. She’s actually joking around with guys in her band, who crack up as she walks by in a purple cocktail dress and a pair of strappy black heels that look like what Victoria Beckham would wear if she moonlighted as a dominatrix. And yet even in that outfit, Carrie looks totally approachable.
It’s a quality she was sort of born with. “An Oklahoma girl like me wouldn’t even know how to be a diva,” she explains. “I’m just a person who has a cool job. I love to be at home. I rarely go to clubs…and I always wear underwear! I just know I’d fall down, and that’s not for everyone to see.”
Once she’s onstage chatting, Regis surprises Carrie with a picture of her fiancé, pro hockey player Mike Fisher, and refers to him as her “good-looking brute.” Thing is, in addition to being one of the most down-to-earth celebs we’ve ever met, Carrie is also one of the most guarded…especially about her love life. She doesn’t lose her smile or sense of humor when she sees the photo — “Don’t know who that is,” she mutters — but when she’s asked about Mike, Carrie basically talks about nothing more than hockey.
Regis let her off way too easy.
