The 38-year-old questioned Doyle on her latest book, which detailed her failed marriage to her ex-husband, Craig Melton, before finding love with football player Abby Wambach.

Clarkson, who shares daughter River, 5, and son Remington, 4, with her ex-husband, revealed that she suffered from the burden of wanting to keep things together because of the kids.

The American author revealed that contrary to popular belief that good mothers stay in marriages for their children, she left the marriage because she is a good mother.

Doyle's statement excited Clarkson, who revealed that she did not get happiness from her marriage to Brandon and realized that a divorce was best for everyone.

According to recent reports, Clarkson has been awarded primary physical custody of their two children. According to court documents, the ex-couple had a difficult time co-parenting because of trust issues between them.

The new arrangement would see Brandon travel to Los Angeles for visitation and parenting time at the television personality's Woodvale residence on alternate weekends.
