Kelly Clarkson Admits She Was Blindsided by Brandon Blackstock Divorce
Kelly Clarkson kicked-off season two of her talk show on Monday by singing with Bob Saget and discussing her divorce with her manager Brandon Blackstock.
The daytime Emmy Award-winning host spoke candidly on the show and addressed how she legally separated from Brandon Blackstock on June 4 after their seven-year marriage. Clarkson admitted, "I didn't see anything coming that came."
However, on a brighter side of the show, Clarkson sang with Bob a feel-good medley of sitcom theme songs with Full House alum Bob Saget. According to Daily Mail, in six months, the episode was the first time to shoot in the studio along with her band and crew.
The 38-year-old Texan pop powerhouse spoke about her divorce and said, "What I'm dealing with is hard because it involves more than just my heart. It involves a lot of little hearts. We have four kids."
The singer-songwriter explained that divorce is never easy. Clarkson told that she and Blackstock were both from divorced families, so they know the best thing to protect their children and their little hearts.
Kelly went on and said that she is usually very open about everything. However, regarding her divorce, she chose to talk a little bit about how it affected her personally.
"But I probably won't go too far into it as I'm a mama bear and my kids come first. However, I do love you all. But I am okay. Everybody keeps asking, and I am. The answer is yes."
Clarkson is requesting joint legal and physical custody of her daughter River and son Remington after nearly seven years of marriage. Meanwhile, Blackstock was also a father to two older children from his first marriage to Melissa Ashworth. His son Seth, 13, and daughter Savannah, 18, were even close to Kelly's heart.
On the other hand, Kelly, aside from giving a little insight into her divorce, joined Bob in taking famous jingles from Cheers, Full House, and The Golden Girls. Clarkson addressed the comedian directly as his sitcom dad character Danny Tanner and consoled her about the age of social distancing and coronavirus while clad in a white suit.
"One thing you should always remember is you are never alone. You have so many people who love and care about you, including me." Bob told Clarkson as Danny.
The original American Idol champ with her three-octave soprano pipes joined by Saget on Clarkson's famous 'Kellyoke' segment. They belted the theme song from The Mary Tyler Moore Show.
George Wendt and John Ratzenberger from Cheers, Dave Coulier and Jodie Sweetin from Full House, and Ed Asner from The Mary Tyler Moore Show, were among the virtual audience members.
Kelly later explained, "Let's get this out of the way. 2020 has been a dumpster fire. Yup, I can't say all the words on this show just piled together, and it's on fire. That's what it felt like."
The singer said on Sunday TODAY last week, "I'm a good amount of busy. I know it looks like a lot on paper. I've kind of always had a lot of jobs,'
