Us Magazine reports today that after Blake Shelton's performance of "God's Country" at the CMA's last night the entire arena stood up for a standing ovation. Everyone except his ex Miranda and her new husband Brendan McLoughlin. Meanwhile the report adds that Blake and his girlfriend Gwen Stefani were seen grooving to Miranda's performance of "It All Comes Out In The Wash". The implication obviously is that Blake and Gwen are more mature.
I don't believe the TV broadcast showed this. Which seems hard to believe as the Director of the broadcast would have naturally been looking for celebrity reactions to performances and none would be more obvious than to have a camera on Miranda during Blake's performance. So I'm not totally believing this even took place.
However if it did, I still give a wide berth to people who have been through a divorce on how they respond to their ex's. Most ex's who didn't have children together, can tactfully avoid each other. But if you're in a position where you have to work together it can be incredibly difficult. I pray if that if Miranda is struggling with feelings against Blake all of these years later (it's been almost 5 years since their marriage ended) she can release them. Those type of feelings never bother the person their against only the person who holds them.
