Kelly Clarkson is opening up about the hurt she’s felt since her divorce from Brandon Blackstock in June.

“I mean, it’s no secret. My life has been a little bit of a dumpster,” she said in a new Sunday Today with Willie Geist interview. “Personally, it’s been a little hard the last couple months.”

“I’ve been talking to friends that have been through divorce. I don’t know how people go through that without having some kind of outlet because it is the worst thing ever for everyone involved,” she added.

Kelly and Brandon share daughter River Rose, 6, and son Remington Alexander, 4. She is also stepmom to Brandon’s children from a previous marriage: Savannah, 18, and Seth, 13.

“I totally forgot that the Emmys were on,” she said of how she learned she had won outstanding talk show host at the Daytime Emmys.

“I’m sitting there playing with Legos with my kid. My executive producer Alex calls me and is, like, ‘You are the best host.’ And I was, like, ‘Thank you,’” she added. “I was having kind of a hard week, and I literally almost started crying, because I was like, ‘This is just the nicest thing to call someone out of nowhere and just be kind.’ And she was, like, ‘No, no, no, no. You won the Emmy for outstanding…’ and I was, like, ‘What?!'”
