Kellie Pickler wasn’t fibbing when she said that she’d skip the wig and proudly rock her newly-shaved head.

The American Idol alum, who shed her locks in September to support cancer-stricken BFF Summer Miller, co-hosted Anderson Cooper Live! on Wednesday and sported the new ‘do with a smile.

“I’m trying to start a new trend!” she said with a laugh. Kellie also updated viewers on Summer’s status as she goes through treatment saying, “She’s doing really good… handling herself with grace as best she can while going through this.”

One of the news items which came up during her show with Anderson Cooper was Season 4 co-alum Carrie Underwood’s recent first-kiss encounter with a twelve-year-old fan. Kellie and Anderson chatted with the lucky little Chase who, as expected, has become very popular in his school and the tyke admitted he still hasn’t washed his mouth off since the infamous lip-lock.
