Amanda Kloots still cries every day almost a year after the death of her husband.
The 39-year-old star lost her husband, the Broadway actor Nick Cordero, in July 2020 to COVID-19 complications and admits that she is still trying to navigate her grief following the tragedy.
Amanda – who has son Elvis, 22 months, with Nick – said: "A lot of people have said to me, 'It gets easier (and) time helps', and I don't know if I found that yet.
"I still pretty much cry every day. It's growing pains."
The new co-host of 'The Talk' admits that "every day is different" but that she is "doing everything I possibly can to stay healthy and active and happy".
Amanda says she is unsure if time will be able to heal her sense of grief but admits that having the tools to cope with the loss makes things easier.
She told Us Weekly magazine: "I think it gets easier because you learn tools to help yourself. And in the beginning, you don't know those tools yet."
The TV personality confessed there are moments, especially as she sees Elvis growing up, where the loss of Nick hits even harder.
Amanda said: "With Elvis, like there's so many things that he does or there's times in life that you just wish your person was there to celebrate with.
"And I think that that's where it's harder because you miss your person so much."
Kloots previously opened up on social media about the "beyond surreal and horrible" experience of collecting her husband's ashes.
She wrote at the time: "It was beyond surreal and horrible. But they're in my possession and a good friend of mine said some beautiful advice: 'look at it as you have him with you now'. Which is really a nice way of looking at it, which is true."
