Shaynna Blaze opens up following break-up: “It’s onwards and upwards”
The Block judge Shaynna Blaze is looking forward to the New Year with bright eyes despite enduring an emotional few months.
The 55-year-old recently announced that she was separating from her husband Steve Vaughan after 18 years of marriage.
However, Shaynna didn’t let the separation stop her from having a fun night out at the 2018 AACTA Awards on Wednesday.
When asked how she was coping following the split, she told Yahoo Lifestyle: “I feel great.”
“Onwards and upwards,” she added.
To celebrate the Christmas season, Shaynna plans on relaxing by spending time with those who are closest to her.
“[I’ll be] just doing nothing,” she revealed.
“Just hanging, catching up with my girlfriends, my family, all of the people I haven’t been able to catch up with the past 12 months.”
Shaynna announced the news of her marriage separation in August, writing a post directly to her fans on Instagram.
“Sometimes in life, our paths change directions and now this is one of those times for me with Steve and I separating,” she wrote at the time.
“I will not be making any further statements about this and whilst I appreciate your support I ask that you respect our right to privacy.”

The duo met at bar in Melbourne almost two decades ago and dated for 11 months before saying “I do”.
Shaynna has two children, Jesse and Carly, from a previous relationship.
The interior designer balances a busy schedule as she juggles being a judge on The Block and Buying Blind, as well as co-hosting Selling Houses Australia since 2008.
