Carrie Underwood: “We’re the most normal couple in the world! I do laundry, clean.”

Carrie Underwood
Carrie Underwood has a new interview in US Weekly to promote her album and upcoming tour. Carrie, 29, has been open in the past about how she’s not ready to have kids with her husband of a year and a half, hockey player Mike Fisher. She’s also used almost this exact same PR stance before – she’s just like us. It may be true and I don’t doubt that she does things around the house and likes to watch TV like everyone else. She had an US Weekly cover and accompanying interview last year around this time that was very similar to this one. At that point she was trying to present a softer image after some stories came out that she was bitchy and difficult. I think it worked in that we haven’t heard any negative stories about her in a while. In this one it sounds like she’s trying too hard to convince us that everything is fine in her marriage. Maybe it is, but it just gets my spidey sense tingling. Here’s some of what she told US, with more in their print edition with Guiliana and Bill on the cover. (Do you think Carrie was hoping for another cover with this interview? Of course she was.)

You kissed a lot of frogs before Mike, huh?
I’ve had my share of loves gone wrong. But I couldn’t ask for a better husband and best friend. I’m finally happy in love, so there’s a reason some things don’t work out. At the time, it seems like the world is ending, but then something great comes out of it and you realize everyone ended up exactly where they belong.

What’s your big secret to a happy marriage?
We don’t bring our work home with us very often. Because we’re so busy, we make our time together count, like by going on date nights. And while we love being together, we also realize time apart is important, so we try not to crowd each other. I love a good girls’ night out just like he loves hanging out with his friends.

Describe a typical weekend? Do you even have one?
We’re the most normal couple in the world! What I enjoy most is a quiet day at home with Mike and our doggies. We watch a lot of TV – I’ve seen every episode of American Idol this season, and we love Modern Family and The Walking Dead. And I do laundry, buy groceries and clean the house. I also make tofu-salad sandwiches and healthy versions of comfort food, like pizza and quesadillas.

Sweet! It must be tough to go out on the road.
I’m actually excited to tour again this fall, and Mike always comes to every show he can. It’ll be hard to be away from him for so long, but he is so understanding and supportive – just like I am with him during hockey season.

Any plans for kids?
We’re not looking to have children any time too soon. Both of our lives are so crazy. Something would have to change drastically in our schedules before we can entertain the idea. But for now, married life is wonderful.

[From US Weekly, print edition, May 14, 2012]

Does it sound to anyone else like she’s laying it on thick? The “most normal couple in the world” and “married life is wonderful” stuff is what got me. If she really feels that way, then good for her I guess. It just sounds like she’s overcompensating.

Here are some photos of Carrie performing on GMA Tuesday, and in LAX yesterday. That pant suit is just ridiculous. I saw those photos on Lainey Gossip yesterday. Lainey also linked to this story on ESPN with Carrie being interviewed about her husband’s hockey career. They asked her for three things she loves about playoff hockey and she said “winning, winning and Mike winning.” She’s hardcore. The photo of Carrie with Mike is from January, 2010.

    I can absolutely agree that she is not really a bitch but rather very demanding and strict. If it were Trump acting that way, people would describe his attitude as a “leader”.

    HOWEVER, that country b-tch is very ungracious to people on the street, in restaurants to the help, and remembers to put her “sweet” face on only when it’s showtime. I just don’t like her. There, I’ve said it!

  2. DeltaJuliet says:

    I don’t know if she’s laying it on thick or not, but seriously, I would hope you’re happy after a year and a half. If you’re already miserable at that point you’re in serious trouble.

  3. some bitch says:

    Ugh those jeans. If your jeans or trousers are too long, go pay a tailor to bring up the leg. Rolling them up looks so damn tacky.

    And yeah, she’s laying it on super thick.

  4. kit says:

    I don’t think I know a single song of hers, only know about her from magazines and gossip sites.

  5. Franny says:

    I don’t think being a multimillionaire with a professional hockey player husband is “normal”.

    I don’t hate the pantsuit, I only wish it didn’t have the racing strip down the legs.

  6. Mia says:

    Whatever. Everyone knows about puck bunnies on the road.

  7. Deja says:

    I have heard she is extremely rude and quite bitc**. I know some people say she’s “shy”….but being down right RUDE to fans and like someone said above “the help” – isn’t being shy.

    • marie says:

      *sigh* I didn’t want to believe it at first, she seemed so sweet on AI, but then I read story after story of her being rude/bitchy..

    • EmmaStoneWannabe says:

      Ugh yeah. I have a friend in MS who had a group of ppl over at her house for game night,including Carrie when she was dating Chace Crawford (these were friends of his). Said everyone was having fun and when they picked out the game, she was a total diva and refused to play. She just sat with a pout face and watched everyone else play. Embarrassing and ridiculous. From that alone, sounds like she wouldn’t really be into the kid thing.

  8. Johanna says:

    This website has never been a Carrie Underwood fan & I’m not really sure why. She has hits after hits & other than the non confirmed stories of her attitude I never hear any dramatic hollywood stories with her. I think she’s probably a perfectionist & that might bring out her bitchy side. No biggie.

  9. andy says:

    I am a hockey fan and when Mike was in Ottawa he was regarded (by fans and players) as one of the nicest/best behaved guys in the NHL.

    I don’t know what she or their relationship is really like, but she picked a pretty good guy. It was actually pretty shocking he married someone famous. So he must have seen something in her.

    But they both spend so much time apart with their jobs that probably dont know everything about each other. Don’t have to deal with the day to day things.

  10. Mitch Buchanan Rocks says:

    And Carrie got to tour with Billy Currington sigh…

  11. Booka says:

    Carrie looks out for the animals and helps them, mostly dogs. She’s okay in my books as is anyone who does that.

  12. eileen says:

    I don’t know much about her music because I don’t listen to country, but i have to hand it to her that she beat the odds and came out successful from AI. Not many can say the same-and I do respect her for not turning her nose at the show she came from. Many have and they paid for it.

  13. Relli says:

    Aw I am not into her music per se, but something about Country B!tch makes me like her.

  14. Zorbitor says:

    I do laundry and clean too!!! I must be completely normal!!!!

  15. islandgirl says:

    Love her bitchy or not

  16. Granger says:

    I love when superstars say they’re normal because they cook, clean and do laundry. Meanwhile, every so-called “normal” person I know would immediately run out and hire someone to clean and do laundry for them if they had Carrie’s kind of money!

  17. Happy21 says:

    Her princess pageant look bugs me and her voice is quite whiny. I’m not much of a huge fan but I think that she has a happy marriage with Mike. I think she is truly a fan of what he does and he of her. I wish people would leave them alone about the babies. That’s up to them. Why do the tabs assume everyone even wants children!

    And I totally agree with the ‘normal’ comments of @Granger above :)

  18. layla says:

    She’s just happy becuase she got her way and he got traded to Nashville….

  19. skipper says:

    What great tips! I never thought about making time with my husband count.

    A conversation about how great marriage is would barely be tolerable with one of my sisters. I really don’t care to hear from celebrities that I don’t know how great their marriage is and here’s why and how they are “finally” in a good place.

  20. PrettyTarheel says:

    On a slightly off-topic note, his head looks like the head from the Prince in Shrek. He’s obviously much taller, but that jawline looks cartoonish. I love a nice strong chin and jaw as much as the next girl, but holy eff.

  21. PeaSoup says:

    I despise her screechy voice.

  22. Jayna says:

    She has said since they met they have never spent a lot of time together, lived in separate countries, both on the road workwise. She stated after marriage they still because of their careers have spent a lot of time apart. I just wonder if he’s faithful, with all his hockey groupies being around.

  23. Dhavy says:

    Didn’t she make a snide comment about Jessica Simpson? That would make her a bitch in my book because JS is a sweet woman

  24. molly says:

    Her marriage is fine? Carrie hasnt been seen with her husband since their honeymoon and whenever she talks about him, she is always saying how he is in Canada training or on the road. That doesnt sound like a wonderful marriage to me.

  25. Mitch Buchanan Rocks says:

    Lindsay Lohan could learn a thing or two from Carrie Underwood – and it seems like Carrie wouldn’t put up with Lohan’s nonsense either.

  26. Vesper says:

    I don’t understand why people always look for the worst re. “celeb” marriages. Is it that unbelievable that they could be crazy in love, and that she is gushing about all these details because she so happy.

    It sounds like they are homebodies when together which would explain the lack of pics. Both of their careers keep them moving so spending time apart is an inevitable factor in their relationship. It doesn’t mean they aren’t happy. Am I being naive?
