Kelly Clarkson shared her Valentine's Day plans after her divorce from her husband, Brandon Blackstock.
Kelly Clarkson shared her plans for her first Valentine's Day after divorcing her husband, Brandon Blackstock, on her show "The Kelly Clarkson Show."
Ahead of Valentine's Day, the talk show host talked to her audience members and her guests, Sarah Chalke and Kym Whitley, about their perfect "Self Date."
The conversation was sparked after an audience member asked Clarkson what her perfect solo date would be. Chalke and Whitley explained their solo dates while on the show.
Clarkson, who is newly single, shared that her solo date would involve the fireplace in her bedroom, a glass of wine, and hanging out with her girls. She said on the show:
"I love like, literally, having a glass of wine. I put the fireplace on in my bedroom—that's right, I work hard, I have a fireplace in my bedroom."
Chalke's solo date would include a hike with her dogs. While Whitley shared that her solo date would involve sending her 10-year-old son away and snuggling under a cozy blanket.
The women and audience discussed different topics to celebrate being single ahead of Valentine's Day. One viewer asked the women if there was anything they pretended to be okay with while in a relationship.
Both their kids have appeared on the show, especially during quarantine when Clarkson was filming the show from home.
Chalke shared that she had once pretended to like an indie band and learned the lyrics of their whole album so she could impress him at a concert. It turns out she had the wrong band.
Clarkson shared that a previous boyfriend had tried to write a song about her to impress her. It clearly did not as the host warned others not to the same, as she said:
"I think because I am a singer-songwriter they think like, I am going to write her a song and... don't."
Sunday would have been Clarkson's first Valentine's day since she and Blackstock filed for divorce last year. The couple had been married for 7 years and share two kids.
Their eldest's daughter is River Rose. Clarkson wrote two children's books based on her daughter, "River Rose and the Magical Lullaby" and "River Rose and the Magical Christmas."
Their second child is their son, Remington. His mom had described him as a sensitive soul and a Tasmanian Devil as it always seems he is trying to knock things over.
Both their kids have appeared on the show, especially during quarantine when Clarkson was filming the show from home. Her ex-husband is actually a producer of the show.
