Carrie Underwood, Mike Fisher Settle Into Ottawa

I know Carrie Underwood is crazy about her new husband, Mike Fisher, but is she seriously letting him handle the interior design of their new house in Ontario? That is true love right there. That’s what Us Magazine is reporting about the new house Mr. & Mrs. Mike Fisher are building in Ottawa, where Fisher needs to be for his position with the Ottawa Senators hockey team. It must be so hard to choose where to live as a couple when both of you travel for a living and when your current homes are separated by more than 1,000 miles. I suppose they could’ve split the difference and set down their roots midway between the two, perhaps in Akron, Ohio, or Pittsburgh. But Ottawa won. Fisher apparently told Canada’s CTV that he loves it up there and that “Home is where we are.” Aw. How sweet is that?

Carrie Underwood Unveils Lush Lashes at Wedding

All they had to do was make Carrie Underwood look even more stunning on her wedding day. Hardly an impossible task considering what a lovely palette Melissa Schleicher and Stephen Moleski had to start with. But it was hot, hot, hot on her wedding day, so they did have to keep her looking cool. They did so with a simple updo with curls and pieces and bobby pins. Then Schleicher, her make-up artist, gave People.com the scoop on her fabulous look from the day. The super secret weapon seems to have been the very lush, soft and full false eyelashes she wore. They were created just for Underwood by Moleski, from Smoke and Mirrors Beauty. Joe Don Rooney’s wife, Tiffany Fallon, loves the line of faux lashes, as does E! star Kim Kardashian. You can get lashes almost like Underwood’son Moleski’s site for about $22. No brand of mascara — or prescription of Latisse — will ever make your eyes look like this.

Carrie Underwood Planning Her Wedding (Barely)

Well they definitely have the kissing part nailed. I’m sure you all saw Carrie Underwood give her fiancé Mike Fisher a big smooch when her name was announced as the big winner at the CMT Music Awards on Wednesday (June 9). But other than the you-may-now-kiss-the-bride part, it’s not like Underwood’s been obsessing over the details of her upcoming wedding ceremony. She told People magazine, “We’ll just show up. It’s mainly about family and friends and the two of us. So it’s going to be good no matter what.” She admits she does have a wedding planner who is handling most of the details. “We have a dress and stuff but most of the things are like, whatever,” she said. I hope she stays that calm, cool and collected when the big day gets here.

Carrie Underwood’s Video Chosen by Snooki, Too

I know it was the fans who voted for Carrie Underwood’s “Cowboy Casanova,” but Snooki totally loves that video, too. She told me so on the blue carpet before theCMT Music Awards last night. I asked the petite star, also known as Nicole Polizzi, of MTV’s wildly popular Jersey Shore what her favorite video of all-time was, and she said, “That newer one where Carrie Underwood’s all sexy? ‘Cowboy Casanova.’ That’s my favorite one ever.” Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino of Jersey Shore said he liked anything from Taylor Swift, Underwood or Faith Hill. It’s too hard to pick one because he likes them all, he said — like ice cream. And women.

I actually asked the same question to all the stars who approached me on the blue carpet and here’s what they had to say:

Luke Bryan: Brooks & Dunn’s “Believe”

Miranda Lambert: Blake Shelton’s “Ol’ Red” because it’s like a mini movie and she kind of digs the singer.

Little Big Town: The band came to a unanimous decision that their favorite is Johnny Cash’s “Hurt.”

Easton Corbin: Hank Williams Jr.’s “All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over Tonight”

Justin Moore: Keith Whitley and Earl Thomas Conley’s “Brotherly Love” — or “anything from Kellie Pickler in skimpy clothes”

Jake Owen: Alabama’s “Cheap Seats”

Chris Young: John Anderson’s “Money in the Bank”

Laura Bell Bundy, Colt Ford, Danny Gokey and Uncle Kracker all chose Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.”

Sarah Buxton: Sinead O’Connor’s “Nothing Compares 2 U” with Sugarland’s “Stay” a close second

Jedd Hughes: Vince Gill’s “One More Last Chance”

Jerrod Niemann: Jamey Johnson’s “In Color”

Trailer Choir’s Crystal: Reba McEntire’s “Fancy”

Jaron and the Long Road to Love: The Police’s “King of Pain”

Kate & Kacey: Faith Hill’s “Breathe” and Shania Twain’s “Forever and for Always,” respectively

Steel Magnolia’s Meghan Linsey: Britney Spears’ “Baby One More Time”

Steel Magnolia’s Joshua Scott Jones: Guns N’ Roses’ “November Rain”

Erin Andrews: Faith Hill’s “Breathe”

Saturday Night Live actor Kenan Thompson: A tie between anything from Shania Twain and the Dixie Chicks’ “Landslide”

Carrie Underwood Says Her Heart Is Happy

There is a very long, very good story aboutCarrie Underwood in the upcoming USA Weekend. It has a happy ending, too. At the bottom of the story she sums up everything she has going on with, “Life seems really good right now. It makes my heart happy.”

It’s a long story, too, so it includes the litany of awards and honors she’s won since she was crowned an American Idol, but also has more details about her background than I’ve heard before. Like that she waitressed at some place called Sam & Ella’s Chicken Palace in Tahlequah, Okla. That she used to sing for tiny crowds that might not have even been paying attention. And how she got a little bit of attitude from Nashville at first.

“Nobody ever came up to me and pointed his finger and said, ‘You shouldn’t be here.’ But it was always, ‘So and so said such and such.’ But can you honestly imagine me spending 20 years singing in bars trying to make it? That doesn’t fit me at all. Idolwas the door God opened for me, and I took my chances,” she said.

She adds that friendships with other artists don’t always work out, but not because of any competitive cat-fighting or animosity. “It’s hard to be friends with people in the business. You’re never in the same place at the same time,” Underwood says. Even when it came to dating, before fiancé Mike Fisher came into the picture, she says she told guys: “This is how it’s going to be. You’re not going to see me much, so you’re going to have to love the phone, because that’s the only contact we’ll be able to have.” Fisher must love the phone, because that relationship obviously worked.
