(Watch) Blake Shelton is All Laughs in His First Interview Since the Divorce
Oh red solo cup…. Only two days after finalizing his divorce from Miranda Lambert, a newly single Blake Shelton sat down with Entertainment Tonight and gave his first interview since the split, which aired Monday, August 3.
Shelton, 39, sat down with fellow country music star Brad Paisley and of course a red solo cup. What was that cup filled with? “ a little vodka and ice. “I thought I’d go ahead and get it started early,” the Voice coach joked. “It’s been one of those weeks.”
With no wedding ring on hand, Shelton was asked how he was doing. “Well,” he replied. “I got divorced.”
Shelton and Lambert announced to Us Weekly in a joint statement on July 20, that they were splitting after four years of marriage. “This is not the future we envisioned,” the couple said at the time. “And it is with heavy hearts that we move forward separately.” Hours after their initial split announcement, it was revealed that their divorce was finalized.

The country couple confused their fans the other day when they tweeted each other. Lambert made fun of bizarre paparazzi pics of Shelton pushing a stroller with a drink in his hand. “I knew it…You WERE pregnant!” Lambert joked at her ex-husband, alongside the pic. “This calls for a drink!”
Shelton then tweeted his ex-wife, “Ha!!! Busted…I wasn’t JUST a fat ass. Drinking shall now begin…”
Despite the joking, sources close to the couple say the two are “devastated” and “heartbroken.”
