Country singer Kellie Pickler talked with ‘Access Hollywood’ about her new album, going back to Iraq for the USO tour, and Jennifer Hudson’s family tragedy. “I think everyone is praying for her,” Pickler said of her fellow ‘American Idol’ alum. “I definitely am. It’s just a tragic story, and it’s so sad. But our thoughts and prayers are with her for sure.” Pickler added that going through the loss of her mother, brother and nephew in the public eye is “not easy when she turns on the TV and see people talking about it. If anything, it would be nice to respect her privacy and let deal with this behind closed doors. It’s just a matter of respect.” Watch the interview below.
