INSIDE Kelly Clarkson’s bachelorette pad that she’s just snapped up for $5.445 million, featuring a sunroom, pool house and massive back yard.
The Colonial-style home in the Toluca Lake neighborhood of Los Angeles is just minutes from Universal Studios Hollywood, which will be perfect for the singer's new daytime TV slot.
Kelly, 39, was announced as the new queen of daytime TV in May taking over the time slot dedicated to Ellen DeGeneres and is set to be the "fresh face of NBC.”
The mom-of-two’s new mansion is spread over almost 5,000-square-foot, and comes with five-bedrooms, seven-bathrooms, a tennis court, swimming pool, guest house, sprawling garden and courtyard patio.
There’s also a guesthouse for visiting friends and family, and inside features a chef's kitchen, a rotunda-style breakfast nook and a fireplace.
Kelly, who split with ex-husband Brandon Blackstock in 2020, is all set for a fresh start after finally selling their family home 10 miles away in Encino.
The star’s new home is just a stone’s throw away from where her TV talk show is filmed, perfect for when she takes over its new prime time slot.
Kelly, who is already a judge on The Voice, has also been lined up for appearances on Thanksgiving and for Christmas specials.
Behind closed doors, a source has exclusively told The Sun that "wheels are turning" in order to make Clarkson "a network face".
The NBC source revealed: "The Kelly team are prepping to take over from Ellen, and NBC's management are on board. The takeover is a done deal.
"The plan is to gently and subtly push Kelly to the forefront of all things for the network with good PR, exposure and TV appearances.
"They want her profile to be the fresh future face of NBC."
Explaining how the mom-of-two has already made "huge strides" with The Kelly Clarkson Show, the new daytime slot is a "key part" of the plan.
"The pieces are moving behind the scenes," the source added. "Certainly the Emmy nominations prompted high fives around the office."
NBC announced that the pop singer, who won American Idol in 2002, would host her own talk show taking over Ellen's slot.
Her current TV show, The Kelly Clarkson Show, which is now in its second season, already airs on over 200 station across the country
Valari Staab, president of NBCUniversal Local, said in a statement: “We look forward to Ellen DeGeneres’ 19th season paired with Kelly Clarkson for what is sure to be a blockbuster year.
“By 2022, The Kelly Clarkson Show will be the star of our daytime entertainment schedules and an asset to our early afternoon newscasts.”
Tracie Wilson, executive vp of NBCUniversal Syndication Studios, added: "The Kelly Clarkson Show is one of the most optimistic success stories in first-run syndication.
"It is a treasured part of NBCUniversal Syndication Studios offering and we are proud to partner with the NBC Owned Television Stations group to continue the show’s success."
She continued: “Kelly and our entire production team put their heart, intent and incredible passion into making a show that resonates with people of all ages, cultures and backgrounds.
“We’re working on some big plans for season three and are looking forward to becoming the premier show in daytime for years to come.”
Back in May, it was announced that the Ellen DeGeneres show would come to an end next year after its upcoming 19th season.
