The Way Mike Fisher and Carrie Underwood Met Will Reignite Your Hope For a Future With Leo

Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher have been living in marital bliss since 2010. The duo, who are parents to 2-year-old son Isaiah, have shared so many cute moments together over the years. While it’s hard to imagine things getting any sweeter than Carrie surprising Mike’s NHL team by singing the national anthem at his game or him supporting her at award shows, it turns out that the start of their love story is probably their best moment of all. During a 2016 appearance on The Tyler Oakley Show, the "Church Bells" singer was asked if she’s ever made out with a fan, including her husband. "No, he is!" she said. "I met him at a meet and greet."

She further explained how it all went down on a 2012 episode of Behind the Music. After agreeing to be set up with the hockey pro by her bassist Mike Childers in 2008, Carrie had him come backstage to meet her in order to take some of the pressure off a typical blind date setting. She was immediately taken with the handsome athlete and quickly texted Childers three words that sealed the deal: "Hot, hot, hot." We would have to agree, Carrie.

Freddie Prinze Jr. Reveals the Secret to His 14-Year Marriage to Sarah Michelle Gellar

Freddie Prinze Jr. is many things – he’s an actor, a husband, a father – but did you know that he’s also an amazing cook? After releasing his cookbook, Back to the Kitchen, in 2016, Freddie is partnering with Palmolive to create messy recipes – aka "messipes" – to make mealtimes more memorable with your loved ones. And his passion for food certainly runs in the family. Not only is wife Sarah Michelle Gellar an avid baker, but he also spent a huge portion of his childhood in the kitchen with his mom. "We would spend time in front of the stove together," he tells POPSUGAR, adding that she would often tell him stories about his late father, Freddie Prinze, who died nearly one year after he was born. Not only did she teach him how to cook miso soup from scratch, but he also learned some important life lessons. He recalls one specific moment when he got turned down by a girl he liked in high school. "She said, ‘Son, girls your age don’t want to date nice boys, and you’re a nice boy. They want to date jerks.’ Only she didn’t say the word ‘jerk.’ She said, ‘So, if you want to date these girls, you’re gonna have to work real hard to be a jerk, and I don’t want you to do that.’"

It’s those same fond memories he hopes to share with his own children – Charlotte, 7, and Rocky, 4, – one day. Even though he’ll be the first to admit to his kids that he’s not perfect (what parent is though?), to them, he’s like a superhero. "Even with all those flaws, they still think I’m a Jedi master," he says. No matter how corny it may sound, he reveals that every day feels like Father’s Day, which is in part due to the fact that he didn’t grow up with his own father. "When you don’t have a dad, it’s all you think about," he says. "You start fantasizing things that you wish you could get. So, Father’s Day is a great day at my house, but it’s more about the kids. Like for my birthday, we go to Disneyland because I want to see the kids. Whatever the kids want to do, we’ll do."

Freddie definitely has a great partner to raise his children with. He and Sarah first met on the set of I Know What You Did Last Summer and started dating three years later. Since tying the knot in 2002, the two have made us melt with their sweet family moments and enduring love. So, what exactly is the key to their 14-year marriage? The simple answer is laughter. "In Hollywood, and in life, a lot of pretty people get married when they’re really young," Freddie says. While he admits it’s important to be attracted to the person you’re with, it’s also vital to have that laughter and connection with each other. "Sarah and I like different things, but she respects me and she loves me, and 17 years later, she still makes me laugh at dinner or when we’re watching TV and see something stupid," he says. "That’s our secret and that’s what works for us. When I’m 60 years old, she’ll still be making me laugh, so we’ll still be together."

Rihanna, LeBron James Superfan, Can’t Resist Trolling Kevin Durant at the NBA Finals

Are Rihanna and Kevin Durant currently engaged in a bitter feud? Probably not, honestly, but whatever was going down between them at the NBA Finals game on Thursday night was extremely entertaining. The singer and Bates Motel actress attended Game 1 in the finals series at ORACLE Arena in Oakland, CA, where the LeBron James superfan cheered on the Cleveland Cavaliers against the Golden State Warriors. She supported #23 at the start of the game by dabbing courtside, and even told off a Warriors fan complaining about her blocking their view. It was great:

Unfortunately for both Rih and LeBron, it soon became pretty clear that Kevin Durant was leading the Warriors to a big win. Naturally Rihanna wasn’t pleased, and engaged in some light heckling as he shot a free throw:

As a potential response to her yelling, Kevin appeared to stare her down after he hit a three later on in the game, which you can see below (at the :36 minute-mark):

The Warriors won 113-91, and at the postgame press conference a reporter asked if the staredown was on purpose, since "social media was buzzing" about it. "I don’t even remember that," Kevin responded, while teammate Steph Curry joked, "Don’t get in that trap." For her part, Rihanna was filmed walking out of the arena after the game seeming decidedly unbothered, saying that the loss "doesn’t matter, b*tch. The king is still the king." Here’s hoping Rihanna shows up for Game 2.

Chris Cornell’s Brother Shares Photos of the First and Last Times They Were Ever Together

Chris Cornell’s death was a tragic shock to many, from close pal Brad Pitt to his brother, Peter. The latter opened up about how devastating the past few weeks have been on Facebook, sharing a pair of photos of the first time he and Chris were ever together (just after Peter was born), as well as the last. "It’s been difficult to put words together," Peter captioned the pictures. "My heart is broken. Chris was always just my brother. We just ‘were.’ No pretense. No dog and pony show. We didn’t have to get deep all the time. Sometimes we only needed to just be in the same room and just be present. That was enough."

The Soundgarden frontman, 52, was found unresponsive with a band around his neck in the bathroom of his hotel room at the MGM Grand in Detroit, and his death was later ruled a suicide. His wife, Vicky, opened up about what a great family man he was soon afterwards, saying, "Chris’s death is a loss that escapes words and has created an emptiness in my heart that will never be filled. As everyone who knew him commented, Chris was a devoted father and husband. He was my best friend. His world revolved around his family first and of course, his music, second."

Peter echoed Vicky’s words in the rest of his post, noting the importance of music in his brother’s life. "It wasn’t until this week, it really hit me how he belonged to the world. That he is an icon and a legend," he said. "Chris protected us when we needed him to. His one of a kind-ness surrounded us like a suit of armor. He was a warrior and a wizard. A howling wolf and a trusted mentor . . . I will never wrap my head around his passing. I’ve been in shock since I heard the news. I can’t and won’t let him go." Read Peter’s message in full above.

Of course, real-life teddy bear Shaquille O’Neal stole the spotlight with a seriously funny reaction to his burn.

Prince William and Prince Harry Open Up About Losing Diana: “We Couldn’t Protect Her”

In the years following the tragic death of Princess Diana nearly two decades ago, Prince William and Prince Harry have mostly kept to themselves when it came to making public statements about their mother. Now, with the 20th anniversary of her death approaching, both have been increasingly candid about how the loss of their beloved mother affected them, as well as a few regrets they still have. While speaking to BBC for the upcoming documentary Diana, William opened up about how they now feel now. "Part of the reason why Harry and I want to do this is because we feel we owe it to her," he explains in the film. "I think an element of it is feeling like we let her down when we were younger. We couldn’t protect her."

When Diana died, William and Harry were just 15 and 12 years old. With William now 34 and Harry 32, the pair are almost the same age as their mother when she passed away at age 36. They have carried on her legacy over the years, especially when it comes to her charitable endeavors, which is one of the biggest reasons why they’ve decided to speak out about her. "I think it’s never going to be easy for the two of us to talk about our mother, but 20 years on seems like a good time to remind people of the difference that she made not just to the royal family, but also to the world," Harry said.

Although Diana was universally loved, she found herself embroiled in a few scandals when she and Prince Charles began the process of their divorce. This led to nonstop scrutiny from the media and paparazzi, the latter of which contributed to her 1997 death in Paris (her driver was attempting to evade a group of photographers chasing them). Both William and Harry agree that they "owe" it to their mother to "stand up for her name and remind everybody of the character and person that she was." In Diana, Harry notes that it was "shocking" to see how intensely the world grieved his mother’s death, but that "it was beautiful at the same time, and it was amazing. Now, looking back at it, it was amazing that our mother had such a huge effect on so many people."

"When you’re that young and something like that happens to you, I think it’s lodged in here, there, wherever – in your heart, in your head," Harry added. "And it stays there for a very, very long time." Like his brother, William recently spoke with GQ at length about how sad he is that his children will never get to meet Diana, and how he wishes she was around to give him advice. Fortunately, both of them have somewhat come to terms with the tragedy. "I am in a better place about it than I have been for a long time, where I can talk about her more openly, talk about her more honestly, and I can remember her better, and publicly talk about her better," William told the magazine. "It has taken me almost 20 years to get to that stage."
