Wendy Williams was doing her "Hot Topics" segment the other day, and brought up Carrie Underwood’s accident back in November when she fell on her front porch… and then needed stitches on her face. 

Wendy said that she "didn't know a whole bunch about" the accident, and although that would have been the perfect place for her to stop, she didn't. Instead, she suggested that Carrie LIED about the whole thing.

She said, "Carrie said on Twitter that we might not recognize her when it's all said and done. I don't know what that means. An excuse for a facelift? But no, we're cynical. She was already cute, so I don't know what she's doing or what happened."

As you can imagine, that bit of nonsense was all over the place yesterday, which is probably what Wendy Williams was hoping for. A "source" told said Wendy wants to have Carrie on her show to clear the air. 

Just worked out next to Carrie Underwood... NBD... #cheflife #BelowDeck #LoveMyJob

Orginally Dan + Shay thought their new song “Tequila” would be fun party song but then they decided to flip it. They explain how a lot of people related certain alcohol smells to certain memories, certain times in their life, or certain people so it’s really sort of a heartbreak song. Dan says, “It’s kind of a story where it’s like, I can do all these things I can drink whiskey, champagne, red wine all night, but when I taste tequila I’m right back there with that girl.”

This saddens me because I feel like this is a favorite part of the audition process for many people! It was the whole reason why we watch the auditions! I mean come on, who didn’t love William Hung! But American Idol did explain why they’re doing this in a way that completely makes sense, they said, "It doesn't feel comfortable to put borderline unstable people up on stage and laugh at them." Well, when you put it that way I guess it all makes sense. Plus, the inspirational stories are really the ones that make me cry!
