Carrie Underwood, Mike Fisher Divorcing? NHL Player Responds To Rumors

Carrie Underwood’s husband Mike Fisher has decided to put a stop on circulating rumors claiming that he is divorcing the “American Idol” Season 4 winner after being married for almost eight years. The 37-year-old NHL player made it clear on Wednesday that he and Underwood are at a good place in their marriage. In response to a fan who gave him a piece of advice on his alleged marital woes via social media, Fisher said that he and Underwood have “never been better.” The fan apparently thought that Fisher’s biblical post last weekend was his way of subtly confirming the rumors saying he and Underwood are in the process of legally separating for good. “Praying for you and Carrie. Ignore the media! Hold tight to each other. There are always bumps in the road,” the concerned fan commented to Fisher’s post that quotes Psalm 139:23-24, which read: “Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.” Since Fisher made his post amid reports alleging his and Underwood’s marital woes, many fans actually perceived it as a cry for help. The post has since received more than 22,000 comments from fans who were worried that the lovely couple could go separate ways. Given Fisher’s response though, it’s clear that he and the Grammy-winning songstress are in no way heading to a divorce. In fact, a friend of Underwood’s recently disclosed to Us Weekly that she and her husband are in the process of trying to become pregnant, two years after welcoming their first son, Isaiah. “Everyone around her knows she wants a big family, and they’re always trying for another baby,” Underwood’s pal said. The Canadian athlete and the country singer tied the knot in July 2010 at the Ritz-Carlton resort in Lake Oconee, Georgia. They exchanged wedding vows after almost two years of dating.

Tangled Lines has fresh take on alt-country, with help from Carrie Underwood’s fiddler

It's only been six months since Tangled Lines released its debut album — and already the Milwaukee alternative-country group has a fan account on Instagram.But that's what you get when three members work for Homestead High School in Mequon, and their meme-loving students know about the band."That Tangled Lines meme account has more followers on Instagram than we do," said lead singer and acoustic guitar player James Davies, who's also a science teacher at Homestead. (Keyboardist John Thomas Bonner and guitarist and banjo player Brent Manor also coach football at Homestead.) But the band does have support beyond the Homestead community. Jimmy Herman, Carrie Underwood's excellent fiddle player and a Wisconsin native, did guest spots on two of Tangled Lines' songs. "Surreal is the word I would use," Bonner said. "When you're a kid learning how to play music and learning instruments, you'd never think about collaborating with someone of that caliber." Who's who: Bonner; Davies; Ryan Kutz (bass); Manor; Dan Somers (drums); Nate Ziegler (guitar). Manor spoke for the band. When formed: 2015. "I was working in the special needs department at Homestead and got assigned to James' class. One day, he brought his guitar in to play songs with his kids, and I said, 'Can I play one?' And I played a song I wrote, 'History of Blue Eyes.'  Later we were talking and I said, 'I'm not a singer,' and he said, 'No, but I can sing the heck out of your songs.' That summer in his apartment, we would hang out and play and realized we had something here." Band name backstory: "The name relates to how everyone played a different style of music, but we all decided to make something together. James' voice has a nice folky twist to it. Nate has sort of that metal thing on lead guitar that sounds great. I've always loved Texas Red Dirt music. Country artists were very influential; I'd listen to their lyrics and connect with Continue Reading

Carrie Underwood says her marriage is solid despite recent spate of celebrity divorces: ‘They’re dropping like flies!’

Carrie Underwood isn't planning on writing a breakup ballad anytime soon. The blond beauty told Cosmopolitan magazine that her marriage is still going strong even as the unions of other celebs fall apart. “Everyone is getting divorced. They're dropping like flies!” the country star joked in the mag’s December issue. With several high-profile breakups in the past year — including fellow country stars Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert — Underwood was happy to note that her relationship to NHL star Mike Fisher continues to be rock solid. “It helped that we were both established before we were married,” she said about their five-year marriage. “Neither one of us could be like, 'I didn't know it would be like this!'” The star also said that just because she often sings about messy relationships, her music doesn't reflect her personal life. "When I am onstage, I am not Carrie: I am Carrie Underwood," she pointed out. "Obviously, I would never run off to Vegas and get drunk and marry a guy or trash some guy's car. But everybody has had somebody who's cheated on them or some jerk they dated." The “American Idol" alum, who is co-hosting the 2015 CMA Awards with Brad Paisley on Wednesday, also shared her gratitude to have found success in the country music genre. “Women have to work harder to get half the recognition,” she said. “I am one of the lucky ones." Underwood's latest success involves her new album "Storyteller": It was herfifth album to reach No. 1 on the Top Country Albums chart, and also debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200. The December issue of Cosmo hits newsstands Nov. 10. Continue Reading

Death photo of Bobbi Kristina Brown nabs $100K; Will Smith & Jada Pinkett Smith deny divorce plans

A leaked photo of Bobbi Kristina Brown lying in her casket during a family viewing has reportedly been sold for more than $100,000. The photo of Whitney Houston’s 22-year-old daughter, who died last week after being in a coma for six months, is said to be reminiscent of the photo of Whitney in her casket, according to TMZ. When the legendary singer died in 2012, a coffin photo of her was leaked to the press. [email protected] has also learned the National Enquirer sent a handful of reporters to Atlanta with “fistfuls of cash” for stories from anyone close to Brown, because they anticipated this cover story to be as big as the one for Houston’s death. That was one of the Enquirer’s top-selling issues ever, as the tab splashed the photo of the singer in her coffin on the front page with the headline, “Whitney: The Last Photo.” “Reporters couldn’t get into the funeral” for Brown, “but that didn’t stop them from trying to pay for pictures,” a source tells us. Making matters worse, the Brown and the Houston families are still at war. After Brown’s sister Leolah was booted during the funeral, she spoke to reporters outside the church, dissing Whitney’s sister, Pat, calling her “a fraud and a phony.” Alicia Etheredge, the wife of Bobbi Kristina’s dad, Bobby Brown, was rushed to the hospital in an anbulance after suffering a seizure following the funeral. WILL & JADA DENY A SPLIT END Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith aren’t getting divorced, according to the actor. At least, they aren’t getting divorced now. After a tabloid website reported Monday that the marriage is over, the “Men In Black” star posted on Facebook, “Jada and I are ... NOT GETTING A DIVORCE!!!!!!!!!!!!! : -).” He stopped short of a declaration of eternal love, however, Continue Reading

Randy Travis and wife, Elizabeth, divorce after 19 years of marriage

Randy Travis and his wife-manager Elizabeth Travis have divorced. Family spokeswoman Maureen O'Connor confirmed to The Associated Press on Friday that the divorce was final.No further details were given, but an earlier statement that the couple had "parted ways" said Elizabeth Travis would continue to be Travis' personal manager. The statement said the couple would have no further comment and asked for "respect for their privacy during this time."Neither could be reached for comment.A petition for dissolution of marriage was filed by Randy Travis in Albuquerque, N.M., on Thursday. They have a home in Santa Fe. The petition calls for an equal split of assets, but offers no clues about why the Travises split, other than saying a "state of incompatibility exists between the parties."The couple has had a 34-year business and personal relationship that began when a teenage Travis won a talent contest at the Charlotte, N.C., nightclub his future wife owned in the mid-1970s with her first husband. They married in 1991.They moved to Nashville in the early 1980s. Travis was turned down by most of the record labels in town because he was considered too country.Under her guidance, he eventually landed a record deal and put out his first album, "Storms of Life," in 1985. Soon the singer with the smooth baritone and straight-up style revolutionized the genre, spurring the so-called neotraditionalist movement that produced some of country's biggest stars.Travis went on to sell millions of albums and has won more than two dozen major awards, including seven Grammys. His latest came earlier this year when he won best country collaboration for "I Told You So," a duet with Carrie Underwood. Join the Conversation: Continue Reading

Side Dish: Underwood snags Crawford

"Friday Night Lights" stud Taylor Kitsch unintentionally confirmed that Carrie Underwood has taken his pal Chace Crawford off the market when he said that he doesn't needle Crawford for details on his sex life with Underwood. "I don't really ask about that kind of stuff. If he wants to chat about it, that's fine. But it's different when it's your girlfriend."Tina Brown better get control of her right arm. At the Atlantic Monthly's State of the Union dinner this week, moderator Jim Fallows asked guests for a show of hands on their presidential preferences. Brown indicated that Hillary Clinton was her fave Democrat - a wise choice, considering that she'll need access to the senator for her book about the Clintons. But asked who would actually win the White House, Brown voted for John McCain. Brown later cautioned that it may have been an involuntary response. "The questions were coming so fast, that I could barely keep up," says the new member of the American Society of Magazine Editors Hall of Fame. "But that's what makes this roller-coaster race so exciting." Top matrimonial attorney Robert Stephan Cohen has handled the divorces of James Gandolfini, Christie Brinkley, Tommy Mottola and Uma Thurman - and maybe he has learned something from their mistakes. He and wife Stephanie Stiefel just celebrated their anniversary at Cafe Boulud, where Bob proposed 10 years ago. Joseph Migliucci's father turned down Francis Ford Coppola when the "Godfather" director asked if he could film the scene in which Michael Corleone shoots a mobster and a corrupt cop in his Bronx restaurant, Mario's. Years later, the younger Migliucci did allow a "Sopranos" episode to be filmed at the sixth-generation Arthur Ave. eatery, and he has fed the likes of Clint Eastwood, Joe DiMaggio and Mario Cuomo. But Manhattan chef-owners might take a cue from Migliucci's op-ed in the Italian Tribune, eagle-eyed Patrick Fogarty reports. "It is important that a restaurant not become too Continue Reading


'Melrose Place" babe Heather Locklear, 44, and esteemed British thespian Francesca Annis, 61, live in different acting galaxies, but this week they're both playing women scorned. Yesterday, lawyers for Annis announced that she and two-time Oscar nominee Ralph Fiennes were separating after an 11-year romance. As we told you on Tuesday, Annis was humiliated last weekend when British papers carried interviews with 31-year-old Romanian singer Cornelia Crisan, who claimed she'd carried on a two-year affair with "The English Patient" star, who is 18 years younger than Annis. (We particularly enjoyed the part about him asking her to leave on her diamanté heels during lovemaking.) How mad is Annis? Well, her lawyers say she plans to sue London's Daily Mail for defamation and invasion of privacy because of a story claiming she'd forgiven Fiennes. Apparently, she doesn't buy into that scene in "Schindler's List" in which Fiennes' Nazi commandant character reflected on the nobility of "pardoning" his victims. Fiennes, who left his wife, "ER" actress Alex Kingston, for the married Annis, had no comment yesterday. Meanwhile, Locklear is telling friends that Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora sabotaged their 11-year marriage by cheating on her. Word is Locklear confronted him after finding some sizzling pictures that the alleged other woman E-mailed Sambora. Star magazine claims Sambora's former assistant, Stephanie Heaton, 39, sent Sambora one photo showing her wearing only fishnets and boots and another of her "wearing a baby-doll nightie in a provocative pose. " "She's devastated," a friend of Locklear's tells People magazine. "Richie's saying nothing ever happened, that he never asked for the pictures. " A Sambora ally adds that "it's absolutely not true that they had an affair. " Sambora's defenders say Heather wasn't exactly an innocent during their years together. Regardless of what they're telling their friends, the divorce should move Continue Reading


The number of women porn king Larry Flynt (below) has offended in his lifetime may be in the millions - just the sort of number the Hustler publisher may have to pay former employee Cheryl Oldham. Oldham claims in a lawsuit filed Tuesday in Los Angeles Superior Court that one of her tasks was to keep Flynt's wife, Elizabeth, out whenever he would be "engaged with prostitutes behind closed doors ... for his own personal sexual gratification," according to court papers. The women's "loud, obnoxious, and repeated noises of sexual gratification" that came from these encounters, Oldham claims, "disrupted the office" and created "a hostile working environment. " Oldham further claims in the papers that a manager instructed her that if Elizabeth Flynt, who keeps an office on the same floor of the building, "ever attempted to gain access to Flynt while engaged with prostitutes behind closed doors that [Oldham] was to divert and distract Mrs. Flynt at all costs until Flynt could get the prostitutes out of the building. " Oldham even had to schedule some of the prostitutes, she claims in the filing. When she supported another employee's sexual-harassment suit last year, Oldham claims Flynt raged at her: "You're overweight, unattractive, over 50, and probably unable to find another job. So why would you do this to me? " Oldham was moved to a distribution center in Chatsworth, Calif., and given menial tasks, which she claims caused stress and anxiety. "Mr. Flynt has not yet been served with a copy of Ms. Oldham's complaint, so he cannot comment directly on the specific allegations being made by Ms. Oldham," said Flynt's lawyer, Paul Cambria, in a statement. "Mr. Flynt categorically denies any allegations that he engaged in sexual intercourse with prostitutes in his office, or that Ms. Oldham was in any way retaliated against, as has been reported.
