Country star Kellie Pickler sits down with Larry King on the Emmy nominated series Larry King Now to talk about not wanting kids, but raising chickens, country stars Taylor Swift, Chris Stapleton, and Carrie Underwood and a possible “American Idol” reunion. Plus, reminiscing about getting cozy with Clint Eastwood.
Reality stars, Kellie Pickler and her husband Kyle Jacobs comment on whether there could be a new addition to the cast of reality TV show “I Love Kellie Pickler”. Babies, puppies or chickens?
“He doesn’t consider those [the chickens] our children. He says dinner.” Jacobs adds, “We have two dogs right now and we are content.”
Pickler also commented on Swift’s massive success and how they both met.
“She [Taylor Swift] and Jack Ingram and I were opening acts for Brad Paisley.” Adding onto Taylor Swift’s recent success she says, “She’s a very smart business woman and she’s very talented. She is one of the most incredible songwriters. She’s a great entertainer and I think really marketed herself and protected her brand.”
Kellie’s totally crushing on a fellow country star.
“Chris Stapleton is one of the greatest assets we’ve had in our format. I love seeing great things happen for great people.”
The “best advice” Kellie’s ever received was from Carrie Underwood.
“I remember asking her how do you deal with people picking you apart and saying these hurtful things sometimes lies? Because we’re all people, we all have feelings. She [Carrie Underwood] says ‘I don’t read them. Don’t read it just don’t even open yourself up to all that.’ and that’s some of the best advice.”
Plus, Kellie reminisces about getting cozy with Clint Eastwood,
“I did what any woman would do. I kissed him on the mouth and I curled up in a fetal position on his lap.” And whether or not there will be a farewell reunion during the show’s forthcoming final season, “I think that there will most definitely be an Idol reunion!”
