"It's been a rough go, man," the host said. Kaley filed for divorce from Karl Cook, who she married in 2018, in September of 2021, while Kelly filed for divorce in June 2020, though it was drawn out because of custody battles, and only finalized this year, in March.

As the host's guest suggested they should go out for a drink to further bond over their divorces after the show, the songstress was hilariously one step ahead, having someone from her crew promptly bring each of them a glass of rosé.

Once they had their wine and got to talking, they both prided themselves on being very open, with Kaley candidly admitting that: "This year I wanted to be very upfront that it wasn't my best year, I've been very sad."

The country star totally resonated with her guest, saying: "Sometimes our lives aren't great, sometimes you're sad," but as both confessed that there were "a lot of tears," they proved they can make light out of the situation, quickly laughing and clinking their glasses.

Depsite the emotional conversation, the two seemed to have a blast for the rest of the show

Then, when Kelly brought up the fact that Kaley revealed she would never get married again, she shockingly announced that she couldn't agree more, stating that: "I will never get married again. Not because I don't believe in love, I think love is beautiful and it's not that, I just did not… that didn't suit me in my life."

The two continued to be on the same page about where they stood romantically, expressing how while they both certainly wanted relationships, they were first focusing on being able to balance their intense work ethic and embracing help from friends.
