KELLIE Pickler is obsessed with her Dancing with the Stars partner Derek Hough — and it’s driving her friends wild.
The singer was a total novice when pro hoofer Derek took her under his wing on last season’s DWTS.
But with Derek’s guidance, the pair went on to win the coveted mirror ball trophy on the show’s May 21 finale.
Now Kellie — who’s married to songwriter Kyle Jacobs — wants to thank Derek by making him a big music star.
“Kellie is just bubbly by nature, and when she makes a friend, it’s like all warm, wet kisses,” a source said.
“She’s still excited about winning ‘Dancing with the Stars,’ all she ever talks about is ‘Derek, Derek, Derek!’
“She tells her personal trainer, ‘Well, Derek said I should work out this way,’ she tells the members of her band that Derek should join them on tour, and she even tells her husband she’d like Derek to come and stay with them.
“Kyle’s not the jealous type, but he’s like, ‘Enough with Derek already!’
“Kyle is kind of used to Kellie’s hyper happy behavior and laughs about it. But he still told her that Derek isn’t moving in with them!”
