Jill Biden offered words of encouragement to Kelly Clarkson during her divorce from Brandon Blackstock. The first lady is a guest on Thursday The Kelly Clarkson Show and the women have an open conversation about marriage and heartbreak.
“I want to tell you Kelly, I would tell you that if I were your mother,” says Jill in a teaser clip. “You know, my mother always said to me, ‘Tomorrow will be better. And if you can take one day at a time, it will be better.'”
Prior to President Joe Biden, the professor was married to Bill Stevenson for five years. She and Stevenson divorced in 1975. Jill married the politician two years later.
“I’m looking back now and I think if I hadn’t gotten a divorce I would never have met Joe. I wouldn’t have the lovely family I have now,” Jill continued. “So, I really think things are going for the best. I think Kelly, over time, I don’t know how long it has been for you [since the separation]but I think you will heal in time. You will be surprised and I can’t wait for that day to come for you. You will call me and say, ‘Hey, Jill, you were right!’ “

Clarkson filed for divorce from Blackstock in June after nearly seven years of marriage. The separation was at times not amicable, however The voice Trainer said earlier this month that they are co-parents.
“It’s tough,” said Clarkson when interviewing Khloé Kardashian. “I know with myself and Brandon, it’s just a difficult thing because we’re in different places. And it’s like we both agree on the most important things, but it’s difficult when you don’t all the time are together, for me personally. “
The couple share the daughter River Rose (6) and the son Remington (4). (Blackstock also has two older children from his previous marriage.)
“As long as you make sure it’s about the kids and their interests, we’re both on board,” added the talk show host.
Clarkson is very open about what it’s like to get a divorce, but she has explained exactly why she and the talent manager split up.
“I’m a very open person, but I won’t be able to be really open about certain aspects because there are children involved,” she said Los Angeles times in September. “I think at some point I’ll find a way to be open and honest, probably about the show, and it’ll probably happen organically, I suppose, when someone says something in conversation or something. It definitely wouldn’t be planned. “
