WEDNESDAY

As if it’s not enough torture already to go to a high school reunion, imagine having Carrie Underwood at yours. I mean, no matter how gorgeous of a dress you bought, how high your heels were, how much you spent on highlights and lowlights, how much weight you lost, how natural your spray tan looked and how perfect you made your post-high school life sound, it would be really tough to measure up to Underwood at a reunion. She went back to Oklahoma to attend the 10-year Checotah High Class of 2001 (where she was the salutatorian) reunion this past weekend, and some of her classmates posted pictures on Twitter. One’s a class photo and another shows Underwood with a friend.

GARTH BROOKS showed up at the Oklahoma State University graduation ceremony last Friday night.  But he wasn’t there to perform . . . or address the graduates.  He was picking up his Master’s Degree.
 
 
–This wasn’t an honorary pat on the head either . . . Garth actually studied and earned it.  I’m guessing he did it online, or through a correspondence course-type thing because no one seemed to know he what he was up to.
 
 
–Everyone at the ceremony was surprised to see him, though . . . and they Tweeted like crazy.

–@Sara_Ramsey, who was a guest in the audience, said, “Brother just got his Master’s from Oklahoma State.  So did Garth Brooks.  Sadly, Garth got more applause.”
