Kelly Clarkson’s health and family are what matter the most to her these days. She wanted to make sure that both of those priorities come first this time around. The Kelly Clarkson Show will make its debut on Sept. 9 on NBC. It’s said to have a “casual” and “loose” vibe even though no alcohol will be served like on other talk shows.
It sounds like the American Idol alum is concentrating on her health. In a recent interview with People, Clarkson revealed that she suffered from an ovarian cyst during the filming of The Voice. She recalls the painful incident while talking to her fellow The Voice coach Blake Shelton. As the cameras were rolling, the singer realized that something was horribly wrong. According to the Mayo Clinic, ovarian cyst ruptures cause bleeding and severe pain. We can only imagine what Clarkson was feeling that day.
Her ovarian cysts burst a week after she had her appendix removed. In a dramatic turn of events, Clarkson hosted the 2019 Billboard Music Awards and was diagnosed with appendicitis the next day. It was the cysts that were more painful than her appendicitis. Clarkson didn’t understand what was happening to her in that moment.
The singer is taking control of her health. She also wants to focus on her family. Clarkson is calling the shots with her new project. She wanted to “prioritize” by scheduling her talk show around her kids so she could take them to school in the morning. Clarkson’s number one job is being a mom to her and Brandon Blackstock’s four children. She didn’t have any scheduling issues since she’s the boss of her own show.
Clarkson actually doesn’t mind being busy. It’s when she’s the happiest and can perform under pressure. When it came to scheduling her daytime show, she wanted to make time for her daughter, River Rose, 5, son Remington Alexander, 3, daughter Savannah, 18, and son Seth, 12, from Blackstock’s previous marriage. Clarkson says she wants to see them first thing in the morning and last thing at night.
It’s likely that Clarkson will talk about the perils of motherhood on her new show. Not only will it feature interviews with the biggest names in entertainment, but it’ll also include games and live performances. She will also open the show by performing a song chosen by the audience. The pilot episode will have serious topics that moms can relate to.
Kelly Clarkson may have a new project, but she’s not leaving The Voice just yet. The 17th season of the show is set to make its debut on Sept. 23 with Clarkson in the red seat. Fans are sure to get their fill of Kelly Clarkson on NBC.
