On an unfaithful guy in her past:
“I don’t want to name names, even though he probably deserves it, but he fooled around,” she tells the magazine. “Oh, yeah, and lied! It was one of those things that everyone knew but me. He was a good liar. Nobody would come out and tell me. And he seemed perfect in every way.”
On splitting from Chace Crawford of “Gossip Girl”:
“We didn’t have a fight. No one cheated. It plain didn’t work.”
On how being famous makes dating harder:
“You never really know why somebody wants to be around you, or if they do genuinely like you,” Underwood — the winner of the fourth season of American Idol — tells Allure magazine in its September issue. “I wish everyone had a label on their forehead so you could automatically tell their intentions. Sometimes you just wish that no one wanted anything from you.”
On how her ex Tony Romo, who is currently dating Jessica Simpson, still calls her sometimes, but she doesn’t always pick up the phone:
“The phone will ring and it’ll be him, and I’ll maybe not answer. We were both small town people doing very big things, and we relied on each other, dealing with fame.”
