A rift has come between two TV powerhouses (a collaboration I didn’t even know existed!), as the union between The House of Gossip Girl and The House of American Idol is no longer. Chace Crawford and Carrie Underwood’s relationship has hit a sour note, but thank goodness the Gossip Guy’s little sis is around to clear up any rumors. Oh, and by the way, did she mention that her Miss USA pageant is next week? ahem
“He’s doing okay through this whole ordeal,” his sister Candice told PEOPLE Wednesday. “He was upset about the breakup. It’s always hard when you lose a relationship.”
Still, his little sis added, don’t expect to see Crawford and the American Idol champ moping around for long. “Chace will get through it,” she said. “We love Carrie, too. They’re dolls and they’ll both do well.”
Candice is certainly doing her best to distract her bummed-out brother. Next week, she’ll compete in the Miss USA Pageant at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino – and Crawford, 23, will be there to cheer her on.
“The whole family will be there rooting for me,” Candice, a.k.a. Miss Missouri, said at On Top Of Cloud 9, a dinner for the pageant contestants. “My mom made T-shirts and little pins for everyone.”
To capture the crown April 11, Candice will have to impress judges including Heather Mills, Joey Fatone, Rob Schneider and Project Runway winner Christian Siriano. [People]
