Tempers flare between Carrie Underwood, Mike Fisher as couple squabbles over living situation

* One flippantly assumes.

Yet, in the case of Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher, it almost seems a little bit sad that they’re having some … logistical issues. Now, when you see an article from the National Enquirer, you’re justified in putting up the old “Baseless Rumor” blinders. So while you might want to take this with a grain of salt, the notorious tabloid had this little tidbit about their marital problems.

Sources say Carrie Underwood and her hockey-playing hubby Mike Fisher – who wed July 10 – are at war after she reneged on a promise to move to his native Canada.

“Carrie claimed she hadn’t thought the living plan through when she committed earlier. She told Mike that she’s most comfortable recording and writing in Nashville, and that her touring commitments make Nashville a more logical home base.

“Mike feels duped and raged that Carrie misled him. When Carrie said her mind was made up, Mike fired back, ‘I’ll be living in Canada, whether you’re there or not!'”

“The conversation turned into a screaming match, and ended with Carrie in tears after locking herself in the bathroom.”

Ah, the old “crying while locked in the bathroom” routine. That’s a classic. I think I may have pulled that routine after Keith Primeau scored a playoff overtime game winner against the Pittsburgh Penguins during that marathon game.

It’s kind of surprising that the two didn’t agree on a living situation before getting married; after all, Ottawa and Nashville aren’t exactly a hop-skip-and-a-jump away.

Here’s hoping the two work it out, because the hockey player-celebrity divorce/breakup rate is unnerving. Perhaps Fisher could request a trade to a Central division team to see his honeybunches a little more often? Or even demand a trade to the Nashville Predators, for that matter? Maybe Ottawa could generate a better country music scene to appease Underwood? It’s all about compromise, folks.

    What a bunch of crap. Anyone who believe this made up story which came from a
    tabloid and they fabricate most stories to sell there paper. Thank goodness Mike
    rebuked it and laughed it off. Was really sad the two home town papers printed also
    without checking out. Now you and others who reprinted or used it as news are made
    out to be silly idiots.

    hey it is all about compromise,maybe they should see how many months mike plays hockey,andhow many months that carrie is on the road with her tours and music and such,maybe while hockey is going on mike should live in canada and carrie can go there when she isn’t touring or something and when mike is free from playing hockey he should go to carris home in nashville.they had made it work while they were dating and now the only thing different is the paper of being married,if they really love each other like they look like they do this should be a small make the best of the situation and just continue to love and support each other,this is what marriage is all about. hope they work it all out.
