Gwen Stefani just admitted that she and Blake Shelton don’t talk. She made the comment during a recent appearance with Food Network’s Giada De Laurentiis. During that appearance, Gwen Stefani dished up a whole lot more than delicious apple pie. She also dished out some really interesting facts about life with superstar Blake Shelton.
Life, Les Miserables Style
One of the questions De Laurentiis had for the “No Doubt” singer was if she and Shelton cook together– and if they talk while they do. Apparently, they hardly talk at all. They just communicate through song.
“We’re like we’re in a musical constantly and we just sing,” Stefani joked. “We actually don’t talk to each other, we just sing like a musical and everything we sing is like ‘I love you,’ like it’s pretty much the whole time like how great we are.”
It rather sounds like living in a production of Les Miserables (where every line is literally sung). But apparently, it works for them. And it also seems that Shelton is quite the chef. Stefani admitted that he “has a good feel for cooking.”
However, his southern roots influence his choice of foods– which aren’t exactly the healthiest.
“Mostly [he cooks] things that are bad for you,” Stefani said. “Everything’s fried. It shocks me, because growing up in California, we are a specific breed, we learn how to be healthy and in Oklahoma they learn just how to have fun and eat and like not worry about it. It’s fun though.”
She said that she is influencing him to make foods that pay homage to her ancestry.
Holidays, Italian Style
Stefani admitted that she is “a Christmas freak.” She said that she enjoys cooking but often lacks the patience. So when the holidays come around, she and the Sexiest Man Alive carve out time to cook up a storm.
And to pay homage to Stefani’s roots, she revealed that they do an “Italian Christmas.”
“Last year, for the first time, me and Blake, because we had a lot of time on our hands because the kids came back the day after Christmas, on Christmas Day we cooked all day and we did like the craziest carb fest,” she said.
“We did homemade gnocchi, potato gnocchi, we did lasagna, which is my mom’s recipe, which is the reason why I say it’s like a 50s recipe because you use like a packet so I know that’s like illegal for you guys … but it’s my mom’s recipe from my grandma that is not Italian, so anyways, it’s still the family recipe.”
Maybe they sang opera while they made their feast?
