Lots of folks are anxious to get a glance at Carrie Underwood, after the superstar told her fan club earlier this week she “might look a bit different,” after requiring 40-50 stitches on her face following a serious fall down some steps outside her home in November. But if you’re paying attention to Carrie’s socials, you’ve already glimpsed the Oklahoma beauty, whether you realized it or not.
Adrienne Gang — from the Bravo reality show Below Deck — shared a photo with Carrie in early December, after running into her during a workout. In the picture, which clearly shows Carrie’s face, she looks much the same as always, with no noticeable change.
“I had no idea she got hurt prior to meeting her,” Gang told Us Weekly. “She had a wrist brace on, but I didn’t think much of it until I saw the headlines after I posted our picture together. I didn’t notice anything amiss on her face. Simply, she looked lovely. She was extremely friendly and gracious.”
Carrie revealed the new details about her accident — which also left her with a broken wrist — on Monday, in a blog post written especially for members of her fan club.
Luke Bryan may’ve scored some major points with his wife Caroline by giving her two baby kangaroos for Christmas, but his exotic present has landed him in hot water with PETA, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.
The vice president of the animal rights organization calls Luke out in a statement on PETA’s website.
“Baby kangaroos belong in their mothers’ pouches, not in gift bags,” Colleen O’Brien says. “These joeys have complex needs, including specialized diets and room to roam — they are not toys and will only become more difficult to care for as they grow older.”
O’Brien goes on to say, “PETA is calling for an investigation into where these kangaroos came from and stands ready to help Luke Bryan right this wrong and move these vulnerable marsupials to a reputable sanctuary.”
The kangaroos — which Luke and Caroline named Todd and Margo — will live at Brett’s Barn, a project named for the couple’s niece, Sadie Brett, who died early last year. Brett’s Barn works with local charities to bring children to visit rescue animals who live on Luke’s Tennessee farm.
