Did Gwen Stefani just confirm to Ryan Seacrest that she and Blake Shelton have a thing going on? Rumors have run rampant about the fellow "Voice" coaches since this season first aired.
Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert divorced in July. In August, Gwen Stefani announced that she and Gavin Rossdale were divorcing, too. That divorce was made final within the past couple of weeks.
While a guest on On Air With Ryan Seacrest, Gwen Stefani played coy--sort of.

"Who's Blake?" she asked when Seacrest initiated the topic. "Ohh, the country guy."
"I think that NBC did that. Two divorced people at the same time," she continued.

Ryan Seacrest went for the direct approach next, asking Gwen Stefani point blank if the rumors about her and Blake Shelton are true.
“I’m not going to answer that right now, Ryan. I think I’ve given enough of myself this morning to you," she said.
"But I think he’s hot, don’t you?" she added.
Gwen Stefani went on to admit that talking about her divorce with someone who recently went through a lot of the same things has been incredibly helpful.
“But to be super honest, it is kind of crazy we both went through the same thing at the same time,” she said.
Try as he did, Ryan Seacrest didn't get Gwen Stefani to admit to anything other than her belief that Blake Shelton is hot.
“I don’t know anything right now,” she told him. “I’m living in the moment, you know what I’m saying? I’m actually so grateful just to feel so alive. Honestly, I’m feeling everything so much and that’s great. The sadness, the happiness, the extremes are really extreme right now.”

Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani would certainly make an intriguing couple. Do you expect this is nothing but a rumor that will die down once this season of The Voice is over?
