Kimberly Williams-Paisley Reacts to Brad Paisley/Carrie Underwood Affair Rumors
You know you’ve really made it when you catch your first cheating scandal! Or so Nashville actress Kimberly Williams-Paisley certainly seems to think.
When confronted about recent reports that her hubby Brad Paisley was cheating with another country superstar — American Idol Season 4 winner and CMAs co-host Carrie Underwood — Kimberly was more surprised than defensive. “Are you serious?” she asked when Us Weekly introduced the topic in their conversation at the 5th Annual African Children’s Choir Gala in New York City.
After laughing off the rumor, Kimberly joked, “Wow! I hope it helps our careers! That’s all I can say.”
We’re not sure they need the added help of a media-fabricated love triangle, though! Kimberly’s on a critically acclaimed network drama, while Brad and Carrie are two of the biggest names in country music.
Luckily, it sounds like their ‘ship is pretty near unsinkable. The actress attributes their “down-to-earth” sensibilities and commitment to “family Sundays together” as part of what keeps their family unit tight. “We come from good families, and we appreciate family,” Kimberly says.
Well, it seems to be working! Kimberly and Brad have been married for ten years, which is like 50 when you have such public occupations. Meanwhile, Carrie and her hockey player husband, Mike Fisher, celebrated their third wedding anniversary this June.
