Carrie Underwood and her new husband already fighting over where they’ll live

Carrie Underwood bugs me a lot. She seems sweet on the surface and all, but there’s something super competitive about her, like she’ll cut you if you look at her wrong. Anyway Carrie recently got married, to Canadian hockey player Mike Fisher. I saw her wedding photos in People and it looked so beautiful, like a fairytale. Carrie bragged afterwards about how perfect and complete her life was, writing on her blogI know how special these things are. There is nothing in the world that I could possibly ask for because you can’t add to perfection!” Maybe she’s just truly, genuinely happy and I should stop being such a cynic.

It looks like Carrie and Mike’s life is falling a little short of the perfection that they were hoping for. According to the National Enquirer, they can’t agree on where to live. Carrie has allegedly reneged on a promise to Mike that she would relocate to Ottawa, Canada where he’s from and works. She’s set on staying in Nashville to be closer to her work, and Mike isn’t having it.

“Reality is starting to set in, and it isn’t pretty. Mike is demanding that Carrie make good on her promise to move to Ottawa, Canada, where he’s based with his hockey team. But now Carrie is backtracking and refusing to leave her adopted hometown of Nashville.

After a lavish $1 million wedding in Georgia, the newlyweds honeymooned in Tahiti for eight days, and then spent another three days in California’s Napa Valley wine country, where their problems erupted in an explosive confrontation.

“Mike was going over renovation details for the 5,000-square foot house he’s building in West Carleton, Ottawa,” the insider divulged.

“He was talking about building a nursery when Carrie flew off the handle. She told Mike it was pointless to build space for a baby because she has no intention of living there.

“Carrie claimed she hadn’t thought the living plan through when she committed earlier. She told Mike that she’s most comfortable recording and writing in Nashville, and that her touring commitments make Nashville a more logical home base.

“Mike feels duped and raged that Carrie misled him. When Carrie said her mind was made up, Mike fired back ‘I’ll be living in Canada, whether you’re there or not!’”

“The conversation turned into a screaming match, and ended with Carrie in tears after locking herself in the bathroom.”

[From The National Enquirer, print edition, August 23, 2010]

The article goes on to say that Carrie just made some empty promises to Mike before the wedding. The couple is also allegedly trying for a baby and the Enquirer quotes a source as saying “Carrie is hoping that once she conceives, Mike will soften and relocate to Nashville, where she works and records.” Maybe that will work, or maybe Mike will resent the fact that Carrie is trying to have their family so far away from his job and where all his family lives. It sounds like she did promise him they could live there, only to change her mind once they made it legal.

Check out Carrie’s outfit on The Today Show late last month. And how many different ways can she show off her ring? These aren’t the only photos of her doing this.

    If this is all true then she is way to manipulative to be worth it.

  2. Bite me says:

    Love the contry bitch, undo it is on constant play in on iPhone

  3. Oi says:

    I think she said publicly she was moving. Time to call Penske then. People will notice and ask him about it looking for a story. The part about locking herself in the bathroom I can believe. Child.

  4. canadianchick says:

    Yeah don’t mess with the hockey player.

  5. Vanessa says:

    I predict Carrie will get pregnant soon.

  6. Persistent Cat says:

    I can’t see a Canadian wording it like that. Canada is a huge country, saying, “I’ll be living in Canada,” is just weird sounding.

    I figure it’s a matter of time before he gets traded. I’m from Ottawa. The women will be devastated if he goes, the men might be happy of he leaves, just so their girlfriends will shut up abou him.

  7. Marjalane says:

    That outfit makes the stuff Rachel Zoe comes up with look good. I did like the jacket though.

  8. Bonfire Beach says:

    You totally called it, CB. I feel the same way about her – sweet on the surface but a bitch underneath. I used to like her when she had humility. Now she thinks she’s all that. No doubt she can sing but she’s not the greatest.

  9. kelbear says:

    I doubt they are actually fighting over it. I’m sure it’s a tough decision to make though.

  10. Leticia says:

    I like her snowy white hair, teeth, and peachy skin. She glows.

  11. irena NL says:

    Cute but a picture is worth a thousand words and her bitchiness is there for those with eyes to see

  12. snowball says:

    From the top pic, I was thinking, oooh, she’s pretty. Then as I scrolled down, it was, damn, her skin’s a little bumpy and not so cute, her roots are a little crappy, ick, that color’s really nasty, god, she’s got an inch of makeup on, who the hell did her veneers, those are the ugliest boots I have seen in I don’t even know how long..

    I think I’m a b*tch. Cosign, CB. The closer you get, the interior just doesn’t match the exterior, I think. I wouldn’t be surprised if this story had a big grain of truth to it.

  13. Zelda says:

    How is he supposed to relocate to Nashville? He has to work in whatever city he is in or traded to and is not a free agent until 2013. And even then, it would be a nightmare to arrange a trade to Nashville just for the sake of moving there.
    So if she always intended on living in Nashville, that means she never intended on living together. Which is…cold.

    Hm. She is WAY less boring than I thought.

  14. liz says:

    Aren’t people supposed to make these kinds of decisions BEFORE they get married??

  15. Dejasade says:

    She annoys the crap out of me. I know she’s supossed to be “america’s sweetheart” – and she has a great voice, but if I hear her talk about how “perfect her life, marriage, man and career” ONE more time…..I swear to God…

  16. aenflex says:

    I don’t like her at all, but this girl can put on a show. I’m not even a huge fan of her music, but she can put on a helluva live performance, I’m not ashamed to say…

  17. Jasmin says:

    Man that guy could cut someone with that chin. Yeesh.

  18. Rita says:

    To me, Carrie always seems a bit aluf (spell) which gives her something of a “hidden bitch” fascade. However, I’ve concluded her public persona is her defense against being overwhelmed. Until she shows herself to be other than what we observe in her behavior, I’ll accept her as a really good and nice person with tons of talent. America loves her, so let’s not start tearing things down before there’s an actual reason to do so.

  19. Scarlet Vixen says:

    Um…yeah…it’s not all about the wedding, chica. You have a whole entire marriage and life together that you need to secure and hammer out all the details BEFORE the big ol’ pink $1M party. I totally believe this story–I have known way too many women (girls) who thought, “Well, after the wedding he’ll have to change his mind cuz we’ll be married for real then and, well, he’ll just HAVE to cuz I say so.” Way to think about nobody but yourself, Carrie…

  20. Katie says:

    Mike Fisher can’t just relocate to Nashville. He has a contract with the Ottawa Senators…he has to show up to practices practically every day there. It’s also not like he can just call up the Predators and ask to come to their team. It doesn’t work like that. Does she want him to retire? I don’t like her either but this is so ridiculous that I’m calling bs on it. She dated him long enough to know enough about his profession to not expect him to be able to up and move anywhere she wants during hockey season.

  21. Dobben says:

    @liz (post 14):

    “Aren’t people supposed to make these kinds of decisions BEFORE they get married??”

    No kidding!!! That’s exactly what I was thinking!

    ‘Course, both partners have to be honest about it when the *do* discuss it… (“sure honey, I’ll live in Canada”… when he’s out of earshot: “yeah right!!”)

  22. guesty says:

    she’s so uberly annoying.

  23. mel says:

    Carrie Underwood is a total Biotch! She’s performed at our venue on several occasions and her demands are just so unbelievable.! She was nothing but a country bumpkin and now you would thinks she’s Queen Elizabeth! Although she does sell out each time she performs I just hate that’s she’s turned into a true DIVA!

  24. Feebee says:

    Wow. Manipulative. Selfish.

    You can write songs anywhere then go to Nashville for collaboration, rehearsals, recording… though even then it may not be necessary several top recording artists who’ve done duets together weren’t actually ever in studio at the same time. If she committed to Ottawa and then pulls this it’s putting a strain on the marriage.

    He simply can’t live in Nashville and play hockey in Ottawa. Her job’s portable, his isn’t. The answer’s obvious.

    They’ll split within a year or two citing too much time spent apart to make it work. Carrie’s just put the chisel in their perfect rock-solid life.

  25. ACanadian says:

    If you guys actually believe this National Enquirer story, I feel sorry for you. All you have to do is read the interviews they have both given over the last few months before and after marriage to get the truth. He will be in Ottawa when working and she will be in Nashville when working. They will keep both places and go back and forth. Also, Mike said they weren’t having kids right now due to their busy schedules. This has got to be the biggest load of crap of a story that I have ever read. Check the facts before you believe everything you read!

  26. Cinderella says:

    Pretty girl, fabulous singer, a little bitchy. That’s how I see Carrie Underwood.

    If she leaves her hubby behind in Ottawa, she’s only asking for trouble. Well-paid jock, nice looking, no wife around, plenty of groupies equals a cheating extravaganza.

  27. flutters says:

    LOL @ this story. It’s complete nonsense because both of them have been VERY consistent saying they’ll be nomads for the 1st few years. Mike Fisher even commented (as a joke) that their primary residence will be the airport because it’ll be a lot of traveling between Nashville and Ottawa. He said it didn’t make a big difference where either was based because they’re so busy, one or both of them will have to travel either way.

    Also they’ve both stated that “now is not the time” for them to have kids because they’re so busy. They’re planning on waiting a few years. So all the tabloids that are on baby bump watch 2010 are wasting their time.

    This is just your typical tabloid teardown story. Just insert the name of the newly marrieds into the template and print.

    There IS one story that came out of their stay in Napa Valley though. Here it is.

    Carrie & Mike sent an about to be married couple a bottle of Cristal.

  28. OddCouple says:

    Mike Fisher wants to live in Nashville, but not until after his hockey career is over. Fisher, who wed country singing superstar Carrie Underwood on July 10, says he has no plans to ask for a trade so he can live in the capital city of Tennessee with his new bride. “I want to obviously play a few years, a bunch of years here yet,” Fisher said after returning to Ottawa from his honeymoon. “She likes it here. I’ve been here for so long. She would never want her to be the reason I leave here, because I like it so much. Obviously, family is going to be important decision. But it’s not like I can’t wait to go there. I really want to stay here and finish my career. That’s what she really wants, too.”

  29. Finerthings says:

    Staying in Ottawa

    As for the future, Fisher says he plans to stay in Ottawa for as long as the team will have him. He says he likes Ottawa, and Underwood does too.

    “I love it here in Ottawa. She likes it, she knows how much I like it and I want to stay here my whole career if possible. And it won’t be just up to me, it will be up to the team too after my contract is up,” said Fisher.

    “We’re both comfortable here. Home is where we are, so let’s make this home.”

    Although the couple likes Ottawa, their careers won’t give them too much time in the same city, making it difficult to have a home base, Fisher said.

    “Probably the airport will be the main residence,” he joked. “There will be lots of travelling. We’ll be all over, so it’s all good.”

  30. RobN says:

    I should think it’s a nice thing that she’s so excited that she wants to show off her ring. Perhaps she should be more jaded about being married and in love, but apparently she’s not. Good for her. And seriously, when a celebrity gets engaged/married, then every show she appears on wants to see the ring. If she didn’t cooperate, you’d be calling her a bitch for that.

  31. Shawna says:

    They have enough money to go back and forth between Ottowa and Nashville, so honestly, what’s the problem? Just agree to get on a jet plane frequently. I wish I had enough money to have 2 homes and have one be principally mine and the other be his.

    But my inside dirt: my brother drives her around and says he’s the worst celebrity he has EVER worked with (much worse than Miley, for example). She treats her staff and my brother like garbage, and doesn’t tip, then when the gig’s over, she patronizingly comes up to him to ask if he wants her to give him ONE autograph. He declines every single time, and yet it’s like she forgets and asks the next time he drives her.

  32. Juice in LA says:

    Well while I think Mike would have a better end to his career if He’d join the very talented and up and coming Nashville Predators,

    I know this is not gonna happen- he’s played his entire career as a Senator, and his contract is the third largest on the team, and not up until 2012, and the Senators are a mess, not likely to give up their third biggest star.

    Looks like she has to suck it up.

  33. Rita says:

    I’m calling out Shawna at 11:58 and her “inside dirt” as complete and utter Bull Crap (with a capital B and a capital C). These mega-stars have handlers that look after such things as tips. Do you think Brad Pitt (who can only wish he was as big as Carrie) pulls out a ten spot for the driver, doorman, or the gal that brings him a dollar bottle of water? If your brother consistantly drove for Carrie, then he’s part of the team and a member of the team is not tipped. I think you are a LeAnn Rimes fan who can’t stand Carrie’s success. Stick with LeAnn’s Corndog and Cotton Candy crowd at the County Fairs and stop bashing Carrie. She’s bigger on her worst day than Rimes was on her best day.

  34. Jeri says:

    Dump her Mike. She’s not going to change, easier to do now then later.

  35. Finerthings says:

    Well US Weekly has their own spin on this story. They both can’t be right. I am going with US Weekly.

  36. Dingles says:

    Do famous people not talk to each other before getting married or something? You’d think they’re all like “hey, I like you, the sex is good right now and I want a wedding. Let’s get married!” And having a kid to “soften” a guy up…yeah, that won’t totally backfire.

    And I kind of want to punch her in the face for waiving that ring around like it’s a freakin trophy. Gloat all you want, lookin’ forward to reading about your divorce.

  37. BethL says:

    I believe Carrie is a bitch partly because of reported demands she made in the past but mostly because of Jessica Simpson. Carrie publically bragged that the football quarterback, forgot his name, was constantly calling her eventhough he was dating Jessica at the time. There was no need for that. I doubt this story is true. It seems too farfetched and juvenile. Also I doubt Carrie is trying to get pregnant considering she’s on tour for the rest of the year. Pregnant woman do tour but it seems like something most would do afterwards.

  38. Shawna says:

    @Rita, actually, most of the stars my brothers drive around DO give him a tip personally, whether or not it’s over and above what handlers give out. Carrie doesn’t, and she doesn’t instruct her people to tip, either. How did she miss the memo? Yes, in theory, someone *THAT* important as Carrie wouldn’t have to even speak to someone in a position like my brother’s, but in practice, stars and the people who render them _personal services_ DO have personal interactions, especially when they interact with each other for anywhere from eight hours to a whole week. It’s just what happens when you take people to wherever they want to go at the moment, whether it’s a venue, public event, friend’s house, hotel, or restaurant/bar/convenience store. (And, *gasp* sometimes people as important as Carrie go into gas stations themselves.)

    Regardless of what her handlers do or what my brother’s company does, I’m making a comparison between what other stars normally do and what she does. Besides, that was only one part of my comment, not the whole shebang.

    Lee Anne Rimes? I couldn’t care less. THE ONLY THING I have against Carrie Underwood, the only reason why I would possibly care about anything she does on this site, is how she treats my brother. Yes, it’s not particularly nice of me to write on this specific post just to tattle-tale, but my comments are normally nice, and I’m only human.

  39. Celebitchy says:

    Finerthings, Oddcouple and ACanadian are the same person. Banned for multiple nicks.

  40. Michelle says:

    I don’t believe this story and I don’t believe Shawna. I know people that have worked with Carrie for years and no one has said anything bad about her. She takes care of her band, her tour people, bodyguards and friends. If what you said was true, people wouldn’t have stayed with her for the last five years.

  41. Shawna says:

    So she thinks she can be a jerk to people who aren’t around her constantly, people who aren’t her friends or bodyguards. My brother drives her around once a year when she tours his area of Tennessee (which is quite far from Nashville).

    Why would I make this up? What motive could I possibly have to lie? This is completely weird to me that people think I’d be making something up. Trust me, I’m not *that* bored.

  42. Ruffian9 says:

    Hate this bitch. MF is, as Don Cherry would say, “a good Canadian boy”.

    This is the Enquirer, so I doubt it’s true. But I kind of wish it was.

  43. Truthzbetta says:

    If it’s any consolation, they sure are pretty. Especially that pretty thing in the first pic. On the left.

  44. PD says:

    @Ruffian9… As long as Don is wearing one of his killer suits when he’s sayin it. I love that man :)

  45. Janice Bloom says:

    Really…Everyone needs to take a chill pill and relax. It’s their cross to bear and figure out and probably one of many problems for THEM to solve together. Also, all the digs and insults are so tragic, meaninglesss and redundant. Perhaps it is a reflection of our innerselves and demons.

  46. Kelly May says:

    How can any of you possibly know what is going on in their lives when you don’t know them or what their managers, producers and family’s are pushing them to do. It sounds like you are basing your opinions on what you have heard from paparatzi’s, magazine tabloid’s, internet gossip, etc.
    Sure, you enjoy being involved with this stuff since no one’s lives these days have enough drama and we’re all too self-centered to focus on bettering ourselves and not criticizing others.
    Maybe we should all slow down and quit attacking others when we don’t know the first thing about what is really going on.
    We need to just enjoy having had the opportunity to share the things they have shared with us and let’s all hope they can work out their differences be fore it goes too far and especially before they bring a child into this world.

  47. dierdre says:

    Listen, these two havent spent an ounce of time together to even start a household and wont for at least another what 5-7 years until mike retires? When he does, do u really think he is going to move to nashville and give up his family and friends? He’s lived there his entire life! Carries career will go on forever. These two see each other a few days a month. How do you get to know each other, build your life together, get use to each other? Carrie admits she isnt good at commitment and doesnt like her things out of place, what do u think is going to happen when mikes around all the time and changing her routine? She doesnt stand still now. She’s always on the run. Do u think shes going to want to move to canada with no family, no friends, no opry, and be around people she barely knows? As shy as she is? COME ON PEOPLE. It isnt going to happen. Whats she going to do there, watch the snow fall while Mike’s out doing this thing. BE REAL. ITS GONNA BE OVER SOONER THAN U THINK.

  48. dierdre says:

    One more thing, West Carleton is a rural community with 18,000 residents. Its in the woods. Do you really think Carrie is going to move there and sit in the woods and do what people? She is high profile, on the go, where she going there? If you people really think shes going to permanently move there, please, look at her life, nashville vs west carleton, PLEASE

  49. Caitlin Sherwin says:

    I met her at the mall today. I went up and asked her, “Are you Carrie Underwood.” She said, “Yes, I am.” I asks her for a hug and she says, “No, you don’t want a hug from me. I’m sick.” I told her, “It doesn’t matter to me.” but she didn’t give me one because she backed up like a mile from me and looked at me like I had a disease :’( my friend has met her before at a concert and raved about how nice she is, but after today I hardly see the niceness. I know if that was Taylor Swift I would probably have gotten a hug!

  50. dez says:

    Good Riddens. This woman made her career in the us and just totally abandoned her fans. She moved to canada, left her family and friends and fans behind. Why, people she meets some second rate hockey player, dates a year with about actually a total of a month seeing each other, then marries this guy and off she goes. Whatever mikey wants. Well carrie, I hope your happy in good ole canada because u have sucessfully blown off your us fans, u dont even blog on your site anymore. I dont know who is advising you, but u need to fire them. Marry a guy u dont know, move out of the country and abandon your us fans. Real smart. I hope your really to committ to 100% married life because its clear from you losing all these awards, your fans are getting pretty tired of being used by you. They dont know you, they know the carrie in front of the camera, the real one is snuffing her fans bigtime.

  51. dez says:

    We all heard the bs about mikey moving to nashville when his career is over. Well he has 7 more years on his contract. So I guess we have 7 years of absent carrie. No worries her career is heading for a nose dive now. It wont matter where they live then. Other thing, how many houses do these two people need. There are people homeless out there and these two have 4 homes. I wanna know what happens when ottawa trades mikey, another house? Carrie u seriously disappoint me big time.

  52. dez says:

    Lets face it. The woman racked up tons of awards, made millions of dollars off the back of US fans. Now shes turning her back on all of them for mikey? Please shes going to find out mikey isnt what she thought he was and by then her career will be over. I am ashamed to have to admit I was a fan. Who is this woman anyway

  53. dez says:

    Do us all a favor carrie, get pregnant, stay in canada permanently. Hopefully your obsessed fans will finally get the picture. They are worshiping a ghost.

  54. Converted Canadian says:

    First of all, I am an American who relocated to Canada (Michigan to Vancouver) due to my husband being Canadian and that is a HUGE commitment, however I doubt that anyone (and the source was the National Enquirer so come on, don’t believe everything you read as A.Canadian stated earlier) heard a conversation they were having about the topic, especially in that detail. They both seem pretty into their faith, heavily actually (read Mike’s website, he has his own devotional) so I don’t think either would marry unless fully committed to each other not the idea of marriage, just think about it, either of them could get anyone! They also read the book a Purpose Driven Life together before marriage, which is where the lyrics for the song “Temporary Home” came from. Besides that normal people fight (to some degree) in a marriage and I’m sure their issues are far bigger than ours with all eyes always on them (their choices for sure though to be in the spotlight). My husband actually met her backstage at the concert she just performed here and he said she is just a “normal” person, a bit shy at first and very down to earth, but her manager on the other hand… I feel like the people who don’t like her are just jealous of her in every aspect of her life that we know! I think us “normal” people are way to critical of celebrities and we need to look in the mirror at our own imperfections before we harshly critize others! She has a lot going for her and I’m sure she deserves it – rock on Carrie (& Mike)!!!

  55. Caitlin Sherwin says:

    By the way, she was NOT sick she had a concert the next night!!

    Also if any of you have been keeping up with this story soon after the article of them fighting about where to live he got traded to Nashville.
