Kellie Pickler is a regular guest on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.” She’s always a delight:
She explained why they decided to elope on New Year’s Day:
“Every time we got to the guest list, it was like, ‘Oh my God! I hate half these people,” she said.
She and her hubby of seven weeks Kyle Jacobs found a small Caribbean island.
“We didn’t plan anything,” she said. “We just packed a wedding dress. We packed him an outfit. We flew there. We didn’t know what kind o f cake. we didn’t have our food picked out. We just had faith in God that it’d work out. It was the most incredible day of my life.”‘
Ellen gave her a wedding gift: a bed with a covering featuring a photo of Pickler meeting her hero Clint Eastwood the last time she was on “Ellen.”
Pickler considers “11″ her lucky number, thus 1-01-11 is now her wedding date forever. She sees it everywhere – on her microwave, her oven, you name it.
She had no bachelorette party so Ellen sent out three male stripper types to dance with her. “My husband’s backstage!” she protested – kinda.
