Carrie Underwood isn't looking to jump-start an acting career, but she wouldn't mind a guest-starring gig on FOX's House.
"I love House," Underwood told me the other night at Clive Davis' pre-Grammy bash. "You know, I'm not an actress, but I think I would like to do something for the fun of it. I usually find when people try to cross over from Music to acting or acting to Music that one of those two are not very good."
And speaking of not being very good at something, the American Idol winner says she wasn't impressed by Katrina "bikini girl" Darrell's unorthodox way of auditioning for the new season of A.I.
"I don't see why anybody would need to do that," Underwood said of Darrell's skimpy Beach attire. "If you need to do that, then you're definitely not in the right Business. If you're good, you could wear a potato sack and people would be OK with you."
Idol judge Paula Abdul chimed in that the 20-year-old Darrell better enjoy her time in the spotlight, hinting that she thinks it's probably going to be short-lived. "Good for her," Abdul said when asked about Bikini Girl's claims that she's receiving offers to strip down for men's magazines.
"You know, everyone wins on American Idol," Abdul added with a laugh. "They get their 15 minutes of fame or they get their 15 years of big fame."
Looks like it's the former for Darrell, who was booted last week during the Hollywood rounds. She's claimed she only wore the Bikini because it was so hot when she auditioned in Phoenix.
Uh-huh. And I have the Brooklyn Bridge to sell ya.
