Preparing for her new season of her successful talk show, The Kelly Clarkson Show, the host and singer opened up on a myriad of subjects ahead of its September 21st premiere with the Los Angeles Times.

Clarkson shared that she had a kind of covert journey to discovering she could be a talk show host, plus the difficulties everyone had endured during the pandemic expressing: “I will be completely honest, and I have been since the beginning: I did not want this job.  I say that it’s the dream I didn’t know I had because I talk to so many people, and not just celebrities. I’ve talked to the people that have been hit hardest in all of this — financially, emotionally, mentally … it’s really the everyday people on this show that have just lifted my spirits when I’ve been feeling like, ‘Oh my God, nothing else could possibly go wrong at this point, like, send in the locusts.’”

The “Voice” coach and Grammy and Daytime Emmy winner also shared her shock when it came to light the accusations in the work place against former NBC Entertainment President, Paul Teledgy.   He was instrumental in bringing Clarkson’s show to air, as well as bringing her to The Voice.

Kelly shared she was “more shocked than anyone” by reports of Telegdy’s behavior.   She did not address straight on the allegations against Ellen DeGeneres and her talk show, but did say that what has been opened up about culture in the workplace reaffirmed a lesson she first learned at church camps and on student council as a child, saying that as a leader you remind yourself, “How you act is how all those beneath you are going to feel like they’re allowed to act.”

She added, “Accountability is so important.  Everybody messes up. Everybody’s allowed to mess up. We are imperfect; that’s OK. But it’s not OK to pretend it’s not happening. … I’m the first one in the room to go, ‘Was that me? Did I do it?’ Or, ‘How can I fix it?’”

Clarkson also noted when asked that she will not just completely open up about her recent divorce to Brandon Blackstock, because of all the children involved, but may talk about some parts of it, if and when it comes up naturally on her show.  She is currently pouring her feelings on the matter into her  music while writing news songs

When The Kelly Clarkson Show debuts its new season amid the coronavirus pandemic, viewwers can look for a hybrid format, with live and virtual interviews with guests — complying with various safety protocols — as well as a virtual audience.  Kellyokes will remain the staple of the show and those are staying put as part of the show.

So, are you looking forward to the new season of daytime TV’s The Kelly Clarkson Show? Comment below.

your stick to the program… giving NOTHING new as if your persona allowed US to interact with you

“Y’all” schtick?

bye bye

Sounds like someone is drinking pure hater-ade, with excessive and unnecessary capitalization and punctuation.

I agree with you Scott, Patrick is full of himself and he sounds miserable full of hate. I love Kelly Clarkson talented singer and love her talk show and love my soaps as well, watch GH, Days and Y&R.

I’m not a party tethering, neither; here’ – nor – THEIR

(just) ‘his’ MINDSET ‘Frank Valentini’


I agree with your thoughts re-someone else, and Clarkson’s talk show.

Oh Patrick…As far as talk shows go she’s one of the good ones. For all of the reasons she doesn’t appeal to you. Which is fair for you. But in a world with so much dark stuff going on it’s nice to have a “happy” voice for a while to pick up your spirits. Get ready for Drew!

I love her!!

‘Santa Barbara’ Episodes May See Light of Day Yet; Will the Beloved Soap Opera Come to Streaming?

For decades, soap opera fans around the world have wanted a chance to see Santa Barbara episodes again. The soap, which first aired on NBC back on July 30, 1984 aired for only 9 seasons until the network pulled the plug after diminishing ratings and multiple changes in writing and producing regimes. The show last aired on January 15th, 1993.

Santa Barbara was co-created and initially produced and co-written by the legendary team of Bridget and Jerome Dobson. At the recent 51st annual Daytime Emmys, Jerome was honored with the Gold Circle medal for his over 50 years of work and accomplishments within the medium. Sadly his wife, Bridget passed away earlier this year in January at the age of 85.

The show featured an all-star soap cast throughout its run which included, at times: Marcy Walker, A Martinez, Dame Judith Anderson, Robin Wright, Justin Deas, Eileen Davidson, Lane Davies, Nancy Lee Grahn, Kim Zimmer, Jack Wagner, Jed Allan, Louise Sorel. Judith McConnell, Roscoe Born, Sydney Penny, Todd McKee, Terry Lester, Justin Gocke, Nicolas Coster and many more.

During a livestream conversation on Friday, June 21st, Jerome Dobson and A Martinez visited the Michael Fairman Channel to reminisce about the success and ups and downs of Santa Barbara and much more.

Many people in the live chat and many around the world (Santa Barbara was very popular internationally) have wanted to know with the legal issues it appears had plagued the show for years, if there would be a chance that fans could ever see Santa Barbara episodes again, and if they could become available or streamed?

Dobson shared exclusively, “Well, there’s some legal footwork being done right now about that kind of possibility. There’s been so much demand to see Santa Barbara, and so it’s not totally out of the question.” Martinez (ex-Cruz Castillo) reaction to that possibility was that of “Wow!” That was also the same reaction by several viewers watching the live conversation in the chat, because that would be a soap dream come true for many.

So, do you hope that the legalities can finally be worked out and you could relive the seasons of ‘Santa Barbara’ all over again? Let us know in the comment section below. You can check out the live chat with A and Jerome below, the moment happens around the 56:18 mark.
