Kelly Clarkson admits nothing romantic 'is happening in my world' on show's season premiere as she copes with divorce

KELLY Clarkson revealed she has nothing romantic happening right now amid her divorce as she helped two married viewers celebrate their love on the season 2 premiere of her talk show.

The singer, 38, filed for divorce from her husband Brandon Blackstock in June after seven years of marriage.

During the season 2 premiere of The Kelly Clarkson Show, the newly-single host helped a husband and father thank his wife for being such a great partner and mother to their two kids.

It all made her painfully aware of how little is going on in her romantic life.

Kelly’s team sent over a bunch of supplies so he could deck out his garage to look like the perfect date spot for a nice sushi dinner, and she even hired a socially-distant violinist for the affair.

The talk show host, along with in-studio guest and fellow The Voice coach John Legend, had a video chat with the viewer to see how he did with setting everything up, and everyone was so amazed by what it looked like.


John said it looked “like a wedding,” and Kelly agreed, which was when things got personal for her.

She continued: “I feel like you’re celebrating–, rejuvenating your vows, what is it?”

“Renewing,” John jumped in to supply to correct word for the phrase.

Flustered by not recalling the right term, Kelly said: “Renewing. Shoot. You’re renewing your vows. Obviously, yeah, it’s not happening in my world.”

The American Idol alum has been fairly open about how she's feeling these days following her surprising divorce.

The hitmaker filed for divorce from her husband in June, citing “irreconcilable differences."


She also requested joint custody of their two children, River Rose, six, and son, Remington, four.

Brandon, 43, also has two kids from a previous marriage.

Earlier in the episode, when guest John first came out to sit with Kelly, she spoke with him about his new album Bigger Love and revealed she's been listening to a lot of it during the aftermath of her split.

After being told some of her favorite songs from the album, John, 41, explained to Kelly and viewers that those are all pretty "sexy" songs.

Kelly replied: "This is a testament to how good this album is.


"I started this show saying, 'Hey, my personal life is kind of [explosion sound], so I'm just saying if this album can be great for someone like me that's really wanting some Joni Mitchell [and] Alanis Morissette at this point, like it's a great album."

While Kelly was gushing over John's album, she is currently working on her own – which she revealed will be a "personal" one.

She told Willie Geist on Sunday TODAY: "This'll probably be the most personal one I've ever released.

"And the whole record is basically every emotion you experience from the beginning of a relationship to the end of what it is now or where it is now, and it's been very therapeutic for me."


The Voice coach added that her "life has been a little bit of a dumpster" the last few months, and she's been really trying to talk to friends and loved ones to help get through it all.

Speaking with Hoda Kotb in another interview, Kelly said: "You can ask anyone that's gone through divorce, I don't think anyone expects it.

"You see yourself growing old with someone and then life has a different path, and it's so hard on everyone.

“You know me, I'm really open… I try to be open and share because we all go through things so we can help each other not feel alone.”

Coming up this season on The Kelly Clarkson Show, fans will see the talk show host wearing an eye patch due to doctor's orders.

The daytime talk show host said in a new promo that without the patch her eye looks "weird and gross," after fans expressed worry about her health.

Kelly said in a new promo for her upcoming season: "I am, well that's right wearing an eye patch because the doctor told me to because this eye thing keeps happening.

"And I can't wear makeup, and if I take it off it looks really weird and gross so you're welcome. Oddly enough it also happens to be International Talk Like A Pirate Day. So that's a thing I totally knew about."
