Amanda Kloots Says She's 'Dating Again' 1 Year After Husband Nick Cordero's COVID Death
Amanda Kloots speaks openly about her dating life.
The 39-year-old co-host of The Talk announced on Friday that she recently "went out again" about a year after the death of her husband Nick Cordero as a result of COVID-19. Kloots didn't share many details but did admit it wasn't easy getting back on the market.
"I met both of my husbands on Broadway shows. We became friends first, then we got married. Obviously we had a child with Nick," she said. “I never really had a date. I've just started dating again and it's so crazy to be together for the first time when I was 39. And it's pretty scary and really out of your element, and it's just hard hard. "
Kloots was previously married to stage actor David Larsen before he finally married Cordero in 2017.

Even so, the mother of one added, "It's all wonderful. There are wonderful people I meet and it's been a great process so far. But I'm just saying it's very difficult without going into too many details."
Cordero died last July at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles after a month-long battle with COVID-19 that resulted in being put on a ventilator and having his leg amputated. He was 41 years old.

Earlier this month, Kloots wrote a heartfelt message to the late Broadway star on the anniversary of his death, sharing a montage of pictures with the couple and their now 2-year-old son Elvis.
"Today hurts, there is no other way," began Kloots. “A year ago you left us and became our angel in heaven. You were surrounded by so much love and Led Zeppelin was playing on Spotify - that was undoubtedly your work, not mine. What happened was unthinkable, losing you was my greatest fear. I've been telling you all along, "Don't you dare go anywhere. If I lose you, I don't know what I would do." "

She went on to say that "there was not a day" this year when her husband was not "missed, thought about and talked about".
"Thank you for being our guardian angel, for sending me signs that you are my DJ in heaven," said Kloots to Cordero. “I know you are only 2 [inches] away. We only had a few short years together, but they were full of love, laughter, adventure, dreams, change and growth. It was my 'Nick Era' and I will have it forever. "

Kloots was also open about some of her more complicated emotions surrounding Cordero's death, admitting "I wasn't a good wife" in an interview with the New York Times published last month.

"I didn't understand any of it," said Kloots of her husband's focus on songwriting and the desire to move to Los Angeles. "I thought to myself, 'This is a waste of time and we have no money.' He didn't feel supported by me. "
Kloots told the Times that she and Cordero had argued over the move for a year before finally moving in 2019: "I've finally gotten to a place where, 'This is marriage - you have to compromise." "
