Look out, Bristol! Carrie Ann has a "girl crush" on your mom!

The sexy "Dancing with the Stars" judge stopped by Access Hollywood Live on Wednesday and revealed she was pleasantly surprised by what she saw when she met former Alaskan Governor / Vice-Presidential candidate, Sarah Palin.

"I did meet [Sarah] because, you know, my dad loves her," Carrie Ann told Billy Bush and Kit Hoover, of Bristol's mom. "So, I went and introduced myself. I was like, 'My dad loves you, so, I have to say hello.'

"And you know what? She's so charming!" Carrie Ann laughed. "I was like, 'Girl crush!'"

The "crush" continued as Carrie Ann noticed a new glow emanating from "The Pistol's" Mama Grizzly.

"She's really nice. And I think she spray-tanned for the finale!" Carrie Ann exclaimed. "One of the crew guys came up and he goes, 'Look at Sarah. Do you think she spray-tanned?' And I looked at her and I'm like, 'I think she did!'"

"It's not that sunny in Alaska," Kit added, laughing. "I love it!"
