Moving is hell, everybody knows this. First, you have to look closely at all your shitty shit and chide yourself for having so much shitty shit. Then you have to go steal boxes from the dumpster outside of Safeway and pack all your shit up under the cover of night, load it into a van and pray that the sketchy dude you found on Craigslist to help isn’t a serial killer or a narc. So I can understand why Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton, who according to Us Weekly, are stressed about their “nightmare” move into the newly renovated $13.2 million mansion they bought in May.
Even more harrowing, they’re doing in the middle of a pandemic which, in case you haven’t heard, poses more than a few challenges! Gwen and Blake are “stretched to the limit!” And I’m not referring to the woman who comes 4 times a week for their assisted yoga sessions. Not even Namaste Jeynni can get Blake’s gnarly bowed cowboy legs up past his shoulders, only STRESS can stretch him that far! According to Us Weekly:
Trouble in paradise quarantine. Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton are working through a rough patch after spending much of the coronavirus pandemic at his Oklahoma ranch.
“They feel suffocated and stressed,” a source exclusively reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly. “They’re both stretched to the limit.”
Many of the issues between the couple of nearly five years stem from the stress that comes with moving. In May, they purchased a $13.2 million mansion in the Encino neighborhood of Los Angeles.
“Friends say this move has turned into a nightmare,” the source says. “This is the toughest period they’ve had so far without a doubt.”
Still, there is hope for Stefani, 50, and Shelton, 44, who had plans to tie the knot in L.A. in the fall.
Well, thank God for small blessings. I was beginning to think all hope was lost.
Oh, shit, my bad. There’s more.
“They know how to compromise,” the source tells Us, noting that the “Happy Anywhere” collaborators have historically found ways to “work through any tension and look at the bigger picture.”
PHEW! Can you imagine what things might look like come November if Gwen and Blake broke up?! There’d be chaos in the streets (of Encino, in their driveway).
