Gwen Stefani thinks about marrying Blake Shelton ‘all the time’


I wish Gwen Stefani didn’t cause me to say, “Ugh – you’re better than this!” as often as she does. There was a time I felt empowered just looking at Gwen, but lately not so much. Gwen was on Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show yesterday to “announce” that she was going to do a residency in Las Vegas. That’s big news, if maybe not totally surprising since we heard it was probably going to happen over a month ago. Gwen also said that $1 from every ticket sold to her Vegas show would be donated to a Nevada charity, Cure for the Kids. That is all very cool and should have been enough.

The part that had cringing was the intro to the residency announcement. Ellen introduced Gwen as having something to tell her and immediately launched into wedding speculation and went on and on until it was uncomfortable to watch:

I mean, look at the YouTube title to that clip – it’s about Gwen marrying Blake, not headlining her own residency in Las Vegas. But it’s the coy, “golly gee whiz” way that Gwen answered that drove me batty. Why is a grown woman asking, “what do you think I should do?” on national television? As far as Gwen’s query to Ellen, “What are you doing? God!” My guess is – probably exactly what you asked her to do, Gwen.

But the part that gave me pause was this exchange. Mind you, the lead in to this was Ellen saying, “unless both of you have had not good experiences and decide this is good enough and you’re going to keep it as is,” which, if you want to nit-pick Gwen’s expression, was not a part of the plan:

Ellen: “Well, just think about it. There’s no rush.”
Gwen: “I do. I think about it all the time.”
Ellen: “Does he think about it?”
Gwen: “I swear…I don’t know!”

Originally I thought this inane discussion was just Gwen’s way of letting us know they would be announcing their engagement soon. Then it sounded like a PR ploy to help fuel interest in her residency. But the more I rewatch that section of the clip (starting at 1:41), it almost sounds like Gwen is telling Blake to get on it already. We have all wondered openly why Blake and Gwen haven’t gotten married yet, it was the natural trajectory of their in-your-face public romance. Maybe it’s because Blake is gun-shy? So, Gwen got Ellen to stir things up.

I’m happy that Gwen’s found love again with Blake. I don’t care if they get married. But I am very happy for her about her residency. That’ll be a great show and I love the charitable aspect of her ticket sales. I just wish that’s where she’d keep the focus, at least for now.

    Ugh Gwen. What are you doing to your face?

    She was gorgeous back when No Doubt was really popular

    So awkward. Gwen used to be one of my faves but she has the emotional maturity of a lovesick teenager.

  5. I find them pretty adorable. Yea, it will probably end with stale sweat, whiskey and tears, but for now I think it’s awesome.

    • Jayna says:

      That sounds like a country song, “stale sweat, whiskey, and tears.” LOL

      I thought it was fine. Ellen always razzes her about getting married when she’s on. I’m sure she and Blake have talked about it. He moved in with her. You have discussions about your future when you move a man in when you have children, and the children obviously love Blake. They are mature adults where there are children involved. Blake didn’t just have a young girlfriend with no kids move in with him. He had to assimilate into Gwen’s life, her family also.

    I used to love this woman.

    Now I find her to be needy and desperate.

    • Milla says:

      Imo, this is real Gwen. Her former public persona was strong and feminine. But it wasn’t authentic. She’s no Shirley Manson.

  7. Lama Bean says:

    Is she wearing a lacefront? What is happening to her hairline? I’m so confused.

  8. HK9 says:

    I know Gwen says she’s in luv but I just don’t see these two as a couple. I just don’t. Even if they get married I don’t see them working for the long term….I just don’t see it.

    • Jayna says:

      Think of all the ones we see lasting for the long term and don’t. All we hear about nowadays is every celeb couple that has been together for seven to ten years or more breaking up. I don’t see them lasting a good ten years, which is a lifetime in celebrityland, and then breaking up just like the majority do.

      They don’t look like a couple that would work. I agree. Yet they work, and he is always around her parents. Her brother and sister-in-law and niece are always hanging out with them, out in Oklahoma, on Blake’s tour, at her house, holidays. His family is around her family also. I mean, this is is a couple that have become part of each other’s families, not just an oddly-matched couple dating and are in lust.

      Miranda and Blake looked like a great couple, and look how that turned out. They seem really happy and supportive of each other. They will probably last as long as all the ones you saw working for the long term and didn’t. LOL Many that break up shock me. Some are still going strong that I expected to fail within two years.

    • No Doubtful says:

      I agree. I see a strong friendship and bond due to their divorces, but I don’t see chemistry AT ALL. Gwen has totally molded herself into his life and what he wants. I don’t think she has a clue who she really is without a man…

    Blake has been asked about this on a radio show a few months ago. He didn’t have the same giddy response like Gwen. He made no expression just stayed nonchalant about the whole thing. I think Blake just doesn’t like to be single but I really believe Gwen is into him more than he is into her. The whole Ellen thing is cringey reminded me of Ben and JLo and we all know how that ended up.

    • emilybyrd says:

      The thing I hear from married male friends is that when they knew they’d found “the one,” they got their ducks in a row, so to speak (financially, job-wise, other issues), and proposed as quickly as they reasonably could. I’ve found it hard to believe, coming from my easy-going guy pals–some of whom have seemed so happy being single. But yeah. When they find the one, they lock it down. They don’t hem and haw.

      My take-away from the Blake and Gwen thing is that he’s not completely sure she’s the one. I mean, it’s possible that maybe he’s not as into marriage anymore. Or maybe he’s the type of guy who just loves being in love, and quickly loses interest once the bloom has worn off. I tend to think that if he thought Gwen was it for him, he would’ve asked her to marry him by now–no prompting by her would be necessary.

      • Jayna says:

        And that’s what he did with his first marriage. Married quickly.

        And plenty of people have been married before and it failed and realize the paper isn’t that important and take it slower regarding marriage the second time, and in Blake’s situation, now the third time.. Blake’s first marriage failed. He married young. He met Miranda, left his wife. He was absolutely crazy about Miranda. But they were together like four years before he proposed, married a year later, so together five years before marriage. He was sure she was the one, but he wasn’t going to rush into marriage again. They were a solid couple and eventually married. She cheated on him and the marriage ended. If he rushed into another marriage, I would think he’s an idiot. It doesn’t mean he isn’t very much in love.

        Adam Levine says his buddy is crazy about Gwen. If he had gotten married by now to Gwen, people would be calling him Jennifer Lopez and criticizing him. LOL

    I used to love Gwen…but she has changed a lot in the past few years. She’s always been obsessed with marriage, but she would be a fool to marry Blake. He’s been divorced twice before the age of 40 and his first wife claimed he cheated. I think Gwen is going to end up in the same situation she was in with Gavin. After a few years Blake will dump her for another pretty blonde…
