WALTER SCOTT ASKS...

Q: How does Chris Bosh like to spend Thanksgiving? —Bill C., Miami A: By giving back. Though this year the 6-foot-11 NBA star will be on the road, his foundation with wife Adrienne, Team Tomorrow, will be helping as in years past to serve holiday meals at the Chapman Partnership Homeless Assistance Center in Miami Heat’s Chris Bosh Miami. “These are normal people,” says Bosh, 29. “Some have just fallen on hard times. We keep it simple. We sit and talk. It’s nothing out of the ordinary, and that’s the special thing about it.”

ANJELICA HUSTON

The Oscar winner, 62, recounts the first third of her life in the evocative memoir A Story Lately Told. Why are you telling your story in stages? That was my publisher’s decision, and it took a big onus off me. A lot of people think of me still as Jack Nicholson’s girlfriend. This book is not at all about Jack. But there’s plenty on your filmmaker Do you father, John. The oxygen changed when Dad walked into a room. He have a leonine. A huge presence. question for Walter was Your mother, ballerina Enrica Scott? Post it at Soma, was only 39 when she died facebook.com in a car accident. What were her /parademag greatest gifts to you? Her humor, her deep love for me, and her beauty. You were a model in your 20s, but you didn’t think you were beautiful, did you? Age makes one more forgiving. I look at pictures from then and think, “I don’t know what I was complaining about.” Your husband of 16 years, sculptor Robert Graham, passed away in 2008. I’ve had to negotiate the last five years alone, and that was huge. You’re not quite the helpless little maiden you were before. For more of this interview, go to parade.com/huston.

A: Sort of. Exactly 150 years ago, Lincoln designated the holiday for the last Thursday of November. But in 1939, to goose holiday shopping during the Depression, Franklin D. Roosevelt moved it up from Nov. 30 to Nov. 23. Some states refused to go along with the plan, and Congress officially settled the matter in 1941 by declaring it be held on the fourth, not necessarily final, Thursday of November. When FDR set turkey day early, wags dubbed it “Franksgiving.” <

Delivery Man’s Vince Vaughn talks babies with Cobie Smulders.

Q: Was Cobie Smulders pregnant when she made Delivery Man? —Mary C., Colorado Springs A: No; the actress, 31, wore a detachable baby bump. As she’s a mom in real life (she and her husband, Saturday Night Live’s Taran Killam, have a daughter born in 2009), Smulders says it was “very nice at the end of the day to unfurl the fake belly.” For dish on the ninth and final season of How I Met Your Mother, go to parade.com/smulders.

who, in keeping with the occasion’s low-key country vibe, opted to go barefoot beneath her lace Temperley Bridal gown. “We both wrote our own vows, and it was hard to get through them, but I did it.” With the former Miss Independent now officially Mrs. Blackstock, the couple posed for photos against the scenic backdrop of the 4,200-acre resort, with the groom making a swoon-worthy impromptu gesture right out of a movie. “Brandon was like, ‘The Notebook ain’t got nothin’ on me— come on!’ And he took me out [on the lake] in a rowboat,” Clarkson says. “It was very sweet. The whole thing was perfect.” The honeymoon, however, was by necessity short-lived. After a couple of days holed up at the resort, Clarkson went right back to work promoting her new Christmas album, Wrapped in Red. It features both classics and winning originals cowritten by Clarkson, including the Wall of Sound–esque title track and the ebullient “Underneath the Tree,”

ot long ago, Kelly Clarkson was afraid of flying. Eager to conquer that fear, a particularly inconvenient one for a jet-setting international pop star, she tackled it head on—by going for her pilot’s license. Panicky during initial lessons, she felt her confidence slowly grow. And last month, the three-time Grammy winner and her fiancé, music manager Brandon Blackstock, shared piloting duties as they flew themselves to and from their intimate, top-secret wedding at Blackberry Farm, a rustic resort nestled in Tennessee’s Great Smoky Mountains. (Here comes the bride in a shiny new Cirrus SR22!) The 31-year-old singer, who has built a multiplatinum career on lovegone-wrong power anthems, long believed she’d never wed. Which is why, standing before her groom and his two children on a covered bridge on Oct. 20, she got a little emotional. “I bawled like a baby,” admits Clarkson,

to Blackstock. “My life did a 180, in the most awesome way,” she says. “I’m still very self-sufficient—it took forever for but me to let him carry my bags—but ike, Brandon’s good at making me feel like, ‘Let other people be there for you.’ I’m way more girly now; it’s so gross! My former self would hate me. She’d be ay.” like, ‘You’re such a tool.’ But that’s okay.” Finally finding Mr. Right madee it Alll easier to forget the Mr. Know-It-All re re who came before. “I only had like three an-an boyfriends my whole life before Branust s don, and two of them were good, just nlyy nl not a good fit,” Clarkson says. “I only u ic us had one real stinker that I wrote [music f” about] and made a lot of money off of. of.” hat She was still recovering from that occk breakup when she spotted Blackstock f r fo nearly eight years ago at a rehearsal for rds. the American Country Music Awards. scal (Clarkson was performing with Rascal our u Flatts; Blackstock was the band’s tour dimanager.) The attraction was immedid ate, at least for her: “He walked by and I was like, ‘That dude’s hot!’ Five minutes later he walks over, and I was so embarrassed because I thought he heard me.” Unaware that Blackstock was married at the time, she remembers thinking he was going to ask her

both of which she’ll perform in her first holiday special, Kelly Clarkson’s Cautionary Christmas Music Tale, airing Dec. 11 on NBC. Loosely inspired by A Christmas Carol, the star-studded hour (with appearances by Blake Shelton and William Shatner) finds Clarkson playing a fame-obsessed, Scrooge-like version of herself—quite a stretch for the original American Idol, as executive producer Ian Stewart discovered. “The first time I met her, I was struck by how you could be that famous and that down to earth,” says Stewart, who reports that as he was leaving the meeting, “she said, ‘Hey, come here and give me a hug!’ She’s just honest and says and does whatever she feels like, which is so refreshing.” As Clarkson sits down for an interview on a crisp fall afternoon in Nashville, that unfiltered girl-next-door charm is in full effect. Before starting to date Blackstock in 2012, “I was single for almost seven years,” says the singer, dressed casually in a well-worn, longsleeved Grateful Dead tee and jeans, as her beloved dogs Joplin, a miniature Labradoodle, and Security, a Maltese, chill nearby. “Every Christmas, it was like, ‘Seriously, I’m still pathetically alone? Awesome. I’m still telling people I’m okay with it? I’m not.’ ” Fortunately, those holiday blues are in the past. This year, Clarkson is looking forward to spoiling Blackstock, 36, and his children from a previous marriage, Savannah, 12, and Seth, 7 (“Girl, I already have presents bought!”) and baking pies using pumpkins grown on her property. A big get-together is in the works as well: “We’re inviting our family for a weekend,” she says. “We love the Griswold Family Christmas, and we’ll be doing the moose mugs like in the movie [National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation] and all this fun stuff.” Clarkson is still amazed at how dramatically her world has changed thanks 6 | NOVEMBER 24, 2013

grow up in a family environment,” she says, “so I didn’t understand it or know if I could do that properly.” Becoming a stepmom changed her mind. Making soccer-practice runs and helping out with homework come naturally, although, she admits, “seventh-grade math, man, it kills me!” And watching her husband with his kids “is the sexiest thing ever,” she says. “He’s a great dad. It’s such a turn-on!” Though Clarkson has generated plenty of snarky tabloid ink over the years for her lack of interest in being a size 0, she feels she’ll enjoy the attention that will undoubtedly accompany her baby bump. “Everybody calls me fat all the time,” she says, “so I can’t wait to have a reason, instead of everybody just being a jerk!” And she figures she’ll be immune to pressure to rapidly drop the baby weight. “I’ve never been Gisele Bündchen, so ain’t nobody expectin’ that! I like to set a [low] standard so people don’t expect a lot.” Self-deprecating humor aside, Clarkson plans to raise the bar again in the new year. While she confirms she turned down an offer to return to Idol as a season 13 judge (“I loved the idea,” she says, but was on tour with Maroon 5 during the show’s summer auditions), she’s finishing up two albums, one “very soulful” country and one pop. “She’s not as angry about [relationships] anymore, so we can explore other topics,” says producer Greg Kurstin, who worked with Clarkson on Wrapped in Red as well as her new pop disc. Not that newlywed bliss means Clarkson’s sassy power anthems are a thing of the past, Kurstin adds: “There’s still a fire in her.” Just call it her own brand of happily ever after. “My big thing when Brandon and I started dating was, I wanna be with someone who’ll push me to be a better person,” she says. “I don’t like settling. I think we can constantly grow and learn.” And, as Clarkson has proven, even fly.

out. “But he was just coming to say that he was from my hometown.” As the two later discovered, they likely crossed paths growing up in Burleson, Texas: Blackstock’s childhood home was three doors down from a good friend of Clarkson’s mother. “I was always at her house, and he lived right there. Crazy! It’s destiny. Sounds cheesy, but it’s true.” Soon after the duo reconnected at the 2012 Super Bowl, Clarkson was sure she’d found The One. Blackstock was divorced by then but concerned about mixing business with pleasure, as Clarkson was being managed by his father, Narvel (Reba McEntire is his stepmother). “He was like, ‘My dad’s gonna kill me if this doesn’t go well.’ I said, ‘So? We’re both adults. And it’s gonna go awesome!’ In my head, I was like, ‘I’m already married to you!’ “I believe you help make your stuff happen,” she adds. “I’m a really powerful manifester. My friends make fun of me—‘Don’t wish for something if you don’t want it to happen!’ ” As further evidence, she points to when she was a 20-year-old cocktail waitress trying out for what was, in 2002, an untested Fox singing competition. “I came home after the very first Idol audition and was like, ‘I’m totally gonna win this.’ Not in a cocky way; it was like something bigger than me was at work,” recalls Clarkson, who had already turned down two record deals because, she says, execs wanted her to lose weight and “be a frickin’ robot.” Now she’s just as certain she’ll soon be a mom. “My eggs aren’t getting any younger so we’ve already started trying,” Clarkson says. “I’m totally gonna have a girl. I’m manifesting it!” She laughs. “And when I have a girl, you’re gonna be like, ‘That chick knew it!’ ” For Clarkson—whose parents split when she was 5, the painful fallout of which she chronicled in her hit “Because of You”—the desire to have a child came as a shock. “I didn’t really 8 | NOVEMBER 24, 2013

TURKEY CAKE

FAMILY TIME

ACTIVE: 1 hr 30 min TOTAL: 2 hr 25 min SERVES: 16

1 box yellow cake mix 1 cup buttermilk 48 soft caramels 48 1 (16-oz) can vanilla frosting 1 cream-filled vanilla snack cake 1 plain pretzel stick 1½ cups diced frozen pound cake

This fun cake brings out turkey’s sweet side BY KAREN TACK AND ALAN RICHARDSON

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease and flour a 2½-quart glass ovenproof bowl and 2 small (about cup) glass ovenproof bowls. 2. Prepare cake mix as package directs, but substitute buttermilk for water. Pour ½ cup batter into each small bowl and remaining batter into large bowl. 3. Bake until toothpicks inserted into centers come out clean, 20 to 25 minutes for small bowls and 40 to 45 minutes for large bowl. Transfer to a rack and cool 10 minutes. Turn cakes out of bowls and let cool. 4. Meanwhile, knead 12

Watch a how-to video at parade .com/turkeycake. Post pictures of your finished cakes at facebook .com/parademag.

2 EASY STEPS

1. Make turkey body: Slice one 1¼-inch-thick piece from right and left sides of large cake, about 2½ inches apart. 2. Make drumsticks: Cut snack cake in half crosswise. Using vanilla frosting, stick cut side of 1 half of snack cake to side of 1 small cake. Repeat with other half of snack cake and small cake. Cut 1 (3-inch) piece from each end of pretzel stick. Poke 1 into end of each snack cake. Freeze until firm.

caramels into a ball (if they don’t soften easily, microwave 2 seconds). Press into a rectangle; roll out, between 2 sheets parchment paper, into an 8-by6-inch rectangle. Transfer to waxed paper. Repeat with 12 more caramels. Soften 24 caramels the same way, then roll out to a 13-inch circle. Transfer to waxed paper. 5. Trim flat sides of cakes to make level and put large cake on a plate, domed side up. Form body and drumsticks as shown below. 6. Working 1 drumstick at a time, spread some frosting over cake and snack cake, leaving pretzel stick plain. Wrap 1 small caramel rectangle around drumstick; smooth. Trim any excess. Repeat with other drumstick. 7. Spread most of remaining vanilla frosting over large cake. Drape large sheet of caramel over large cake, leaving an opening at tapered, trimmed end. Smooth caramel. Use a dot of water to attach drumsticks to either side of the cake at tapered end, crossing pretzel sticks. 8. Pile pound cake cubes in caramel opening and under drumsticks, as stuffing. Toss coconut with green food coloring to tint and sprinkle over stuffing. Garnish, if desired, with marzipan fruit and fruit leather cut into leaf shapes.

Ask Marilyn By Marilyn vos Savant

Why does a slightly damp sponge work better at absorbing a liquid spill than a totally dry one? —Mary L., via email

Actual size is 40.6 mm

A Coin Flip You Can’t Afford to Lose Why are we releasing the most popular silver dollar in America for a remarkably affordable price? We’re doing it to introduce you to what hundreds of thousands of smart collectors and satisfied customers have known since 1984 — GovMint.com is the place to find the world’s finest coins.

Water molecules are attracted to each other more than they’re attracted to anything else—in this case, the sponge material. So when you press a moist sponge against a spill, the water moves faster to bind with the existing liquid than it would move to a dry sponge. This “sticky” property of water is also what accounts for its surface tension. You can demonstrate this by filling a glass with water and carefully observing the glass from the side as you add a little more, drop by drop. Due to surface tension, you will be able to make the water level rise slightly above the rim!

Sunday With...

I

TALK TO MISS KAY! Join us for a Facebook chat with her on Monday, You and Phil have Nov. 25, at 1:30 p.m. ET four sons. Did you ever at facebook.com wish for daughters? /parademag.

f you ask Kay Robertson, fondly known as Miss Kay, how long she plans to be a part of her family’s hit reality show, she’ll say she’s not sure. But she does feel a sense of loyalty to her huge flock of fans. “I think America needs us,” says Robertson, 65. “Duck Dynasty has given some hope to bringing the family back. I want to set that example.” The A&E series, which will air a Christmas special on Dec. 11, has also brought back the family dinner. Each episode ends with the clan enjoying a home-cooked meal, and Robertson is sharing some of those dishes in her first cookbook, Miss Kay’s Duck Commander Kitchen. The Louisiana native talks to Erin Hill about food, her boys, and her husband, Phil.

Have you thought about a bigger house? You could live in a mansion if you wanted! We just added a closet. The boys laughed and said, “Mama’s got her money and what does she do? She builds a new closet.” I’ve got way too many good memories in this house, so we’re not going anywhere. DUCK DYNASTY’S

PARADE: Who taught

you to cook? My grandmother, Callie Mae Carroway. I was at her feet all the time, so from an early age I was rolling out dough and probably making a big mess! I played with it as much as I did any good, but I learned. I did love that rolling pin, which is maybe why I love to make pastries and pies now. Is it true that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach? Well, I know it is in the GET MISS KAY’S PECAN PIE RECIPE AT PARADE.COM/DUCK.

Miss Kay

The reality TV matriarch dishes about her love of cooking and old-fashioned family values South—I don’t know about everywhere! I think one of the things Phil adored about me was even though I wasn’t the best cook when we got married, I had a passion for it and knew I could improve. Let’s face it, nowadays not a lot of women are interested in the kitchen. We watched you two renew your vows on the show this year. What’s the secret to

your 49-year marriage? You have to fight for your marriage, do whatever it takes. The commitment has to be there. And if you don’t have a sense of humor, I don’t know how anybody makes it. There have been many times that we took something we disagreed about and later just laughed at the way we acted. If you’re never able to laugh in life, you sure don’t enjoy it.

How do you spend Sundays? Robertsons love Sundays! The most important thing we do is gather together with our church family for worship, teaching, and fellowship. After church, we like to have a nice lunch of roast, vegetables, and definitely rolls or biscuits. And I love catching a nap when I can. How has fame affected your family? It’s hard going places now. Phil refuses to go to the movies because people come sit with you and want to talk the whole time. But I go myself and they don’t bother me as bad as they do the guys—the bearded ones, as I call them!

PHOTOS, CLOCKWISE FROM TOP: ART STREIBER/A&E; JENNIFER GRAYLOCK/FILMMAGIC; FLOORTJE/GETTY IMAGES

Of course, but I wound up having them in my daughters-inlaw and then my granddaughters. I always thought, what would I have done with a girl if I’d had one? There was nowhere to put her! But with the boys, it’s kind of like a locker room. They don’t mind all being in the bathroom together.
