American Idol alum and country singer Kellie Pickler has found many different journeys since Idol and has found a way to extend the 15 mins or fame to almost 15 years.
Pickler's latest conquest is hosting a daytime talk show on CMT called Pickler & Ben. The show is produced by Faith Hill. She co=hosts with Ben Aaron who she told Perez Hilton "the moment that we met it was like Ben instantly became the big brother I never had." She also added, "He's an incredible dancer, very flexible".
The show debuted September 18th and seems to be doing well. It's all shot in Nashville to which Kellie said, "This is the first talkshow they've ever done in Nashville and it's one of the fastest growing cities in the country right now. People are now coming to Nashville straight to our set to be in the audience."
She's even gotten gift from another major talk show host.... Ellen. "Ellen [DeGeneres] actually sent us a gift. A little surprise gift, when we opened it, confetti shot out to the ceiling," she told Perez.
She hasn't given up on music though. Sh'es got a holiday tour about to begin and a new song called "The Naughty List" with Phil Vassar.
