And the finger-pointing continues. Neither Blake Shelton nor Miranda Lambert is backing down from their accusations of infidelity, but now Miranda says there was another problem in their marriage: Blake’s TV show, ‘The Voice.’
Sources close to Miranda said that Blake had to spend seven to eight months out of the year in LA to film ‘The Voice,’ far from their homes in Oklahoma and Nashville. While Miranda would make the effort to fly out to LA to see him (sometimes even for just a day), Blake didn’t reciprocate. Miranda reportedly felt abandoned and told people:
This is no way to live.”
It probably didn’t help that she is said to “hate” LA.
Blake admitted in a 2012 interview:
She literally has flown across the country to be with me for one night and will get up and go home the next morning … where I just won’t do it and say, ‘Oh, I’ll see you next week!’ I’m just a guy about it, I guess. She’s always been the one to go through hell to make sure we spend time together.
“She’s kept us strong, especially in the early days when it was easy to give up and say ‘This is too hard.’ She’s the one that’s always found a way.”
Perhaps at least part of their problems was that Miranda got tired of being the one who put more of the effort into the relationship? Who wouldn’t? I can see that. It’s too bad their split has gotten so nasty.
