The 35-year-old singer opened up about her marriage during a private show for SiriusXM listeners at the Highline Ballroom in New York City on Friday, revealing that Blackstock was the first man she ever felt sexually attracted to.

"This isn’t a downer to anybody I dated before him, but I’m just going to be real: I never felt like, honesty, sexually attracted to anybody before him,” Clarkson admitted. “And I’m not downing my exes. You know, everybody’s different. But there was something about him.”

2017-07-06T09:48:08-07:00Is Kenya Moore Getting Fired from 'Rhoa'?

Season 10 of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta” has yet to premiere, but there’s already drama brewing behind the scenes.

Producers of the Bravo series have issued newlywed Kenya Moore an ultimatum — let cameras document her uber-private marriage to Marc Daly or risk being canned from the show, insiders have told TMZ.

Moore, 46, who wed Daly in a private ceremony in the St. Lucia last month, has chosen to keep the couple’s romance private despite fellow “Housewives” Cynthia Bailey and Phaedra Parks’ willingness to air their dirty laundry for viewers. Daly is also said to be hesitant because of the way male cast members have been portrayed in past seasons.

Kenya Moore has appeared in Deliver Us from Eva and Waiting to Exhale.

Exclusive: Kelly Rowland Talks Emotional Future in Trump's America, Beyoncé's Baby Tips and 'Better' Sex After 30
"I'm not going to cry," Kelly Rowland swears over the phone to Et. But just as the pop star assures herself she won't, on the day of President Donald Trump's inauguration, Rowland finds herself unable to stop.

She tries to collect herself, but the crying persists. "Sorry for the tears," Rowland, 35, apologizes.

Ahead of the Saturday premiere of her new Lifetime movie, Love By the 10th Date, about four magazine employees juggling romance with career ambitions, Rowland got candid with Et.

Not only did Rowland not hold back on the baby tips she received from Beyoncé, why her forthcoming album won't be about sex and her lack of interest in a Destiny's Child biopic, the girl group alum couldn't help but get emotional over imagining who her "future daughter" will look up to without Michelle Obama in the White House.

"Black Panther" Rescues Angela Bassett From "Ahs"

Chris here. Fellow bemoaners of how Angela Bassett is being wasted on the likes of American Horror Story bemoan no more. The actress has joined the cast of Marvel's Black Panther as Ramonda, the mother of Black Panther himself. It's fitting that our queen will finally play a queen again.

It may not be the kind of heavy lifting we'd really love to see Bassett working with (though she was part of the brilliant Chi-Raq ensemble), Ahs has proven that the actress can still have a good time. And with an already exciting cast, it'll be a thrill to see her alongside the likes of Chadwick Boseman, Lupita Nyong'o, and her Waiting to Exhale director Forest Whitaker. Fingers crossed her superpowers will include setting cars and our hearts on fire just like Exhale's Bernadine.

Can you believe Angela Bassett only has one Oscar nomination to her name?? It's been over

Annalise Keating made quite the unexpected pass at the end of Thursday’s How to Get Away With Murder. No, no, no… I don’t mean to imply she asked puppydog Wes to handle dictation duties — not that there’d be anything wrong with that.
