Justin Guarini is performing a one man show called “Love Sick” which opened Friday at Bucks County Playhouse in New Hope, and he is not holding back.
According to a review from mcall.com, Justin confesses that he and Kelly Clarkson had “a serious thing” that begun on the set of From Justin to Kelly, the horrible beach musical they did together after Idol. Kelly had won that inaugural season, while Justin came in second place behind her.
The relationship ended when her career took off, and his eventually…well didn’t.
Justin also reveals during patter between numbers that, during the competition, he also romanced the 4th place finisher that season, Tamara Gray. What a lothario!
And, from the too much information department, Justin shares with the audience that he had a vasectomy after his wife Reina gave birth to their second son. She came to the marriage with a daughter, giving the family 3 children. Alrighty then.
Welp. No harm no foul! Everyone is married with kids–Tamyra to songwriter Sam Watters with a daughter born in 2010 and Kelly, of course, married to Brandon Blackstock and expecting a baby girl later this year.
You can read more about the performances, which the site reviews favorably at mcall.com. Although the reviewer’s insistence that Justin is a better singer and performer than Kelly gives me a little pause. Heh.
Justin’s father-in-law, Bernie Capodici serves as musical director of an eight piece band the backs Justin as he sings 13 songs about love, peppered with anecdotes from the singer’s life like the ones above. I think we’ve covered the juiciest revelations, however.
Justin is currently in rehearsals to take over the role of Fiyero in Wicked on Broadway, beginning Tuesday February 25.
