Has Quarantine Driven Kelly Clarkson To A Breaking Point?

The COVID-19 pandemic has been difficult for everybody, including those working in the entertainment industry, whose projects were derailed by lockdowns and strict testing procedures. Back in November 2020, an outbreak of the virus on "The Kelly Clarkson Show" set led the host to have a scare herself, per Entertainment Tonight. Thankfully, Clarkson tested negative. 

It's been a tough few years for Clarkson, particularly following the dissolution of her seven-year marriage to Brandon Blackstock. As The Sun reported at the time, the talk show host filed for divorce in June 2020, citing "irreconcilable differences." The couple shares two children, daughter River and son Remington. Clarkson was devastated by the split.

Then, just a few months after COVID-19 ravaged her show, Clarkson missed taping the talent competition "The Voice" after falling ill, per USA Today. Thankfully, "she didn't test positive" as host Carson Daly noted, with Kelsea Ballerini filling in. Suffice to say, Clarkson is sick and tired of her life being derailed by the pandemic, especially since she's stuck at home again. 

Kelly Clarkson's experience is super relatable to parents

According to People, Kelly Clarkson is currently stuck quarantining with her two children, but that didn't mean she was entirely absent from her talk show. During a recent episode of "The Kelly Clarkson Show," the singer called in to give replacement host Taraji P. Henson a quick update about her situation. In classic Clarkson fashion, she proudly appeared onscreen with no makeup on and messy hair, dressed in a sleep mask and robe.

"Sometimes women don't rise. Sometimes we fall," she quipped (via YouTube). As Clarkson admitted, "I thought we were done with quarantining, and I'm so tired." Continuing on, to the delight of fans, the "Voice" judge shared, "I broke a nail. I'm so broken. This is me broken. My almond milk just expired. America, this is what I look like. You're welcome." Thankfully, Clarkson isn't actually ill and is simply ensuring she and her kids are safe.

They've mostly been chilling out together, watching "Ghostbusters: Afterlife" and the hit Disney movie "Encanto," which Clarkson previously shared on Instagram was fast becoming a family favorite. "Our third night in a row to watch 'Encanto' ha! My kids are obsessed and I don't mind, it's so good," she wrote at the time.

Us Weekly confirms Clarkson was forced to stay home after being exposed to someone who had previously tested positive for COVID-19. Thankfully, she doesn't appear to be suffering herself, except by being confined to the house and driven stir crazy.
