Amanda Kloots joined “The Talk” in 2021 as one of the newest remaining co-hosts. In 2020, she became known for her heartfelt and optimistic Instagram posts documenting the ultimately tragic loss of her husband, Nick Cordero.

In this segment, she discusses her grieving process at the ten-month anniversary of Cordero’s death. She shares a coping mechanism from a grief counselor that makes it seem like Nick is still holding, supporting, and caring for her.

Lauper posted a photo of Sharon and her on her Instagram page. She did not deny that the “The Talk” co-host hurt others with her words and also “flubbed” her apology, but she pointed out, the former co-host is being sincere in her efforts to make things right.

‘Glee’ Actor Jane Lynch Opens about the College Admissions Scandal
Actress Jane Lynch joined the ladies at “The Talk” to back actress Felicity Huffman who had to do some time for illegally manipulating college admissions to get her kids into USC. The “Glee” star said former “Desperate Housewives” Huffman’s crime was not worthy of jail time.
The ladies on the panel disagreed strongly, siding with many folks, including Michael B. Jordan and John Legend. Both celebs aired on social media the harsh discrepancy between a homeless woman’s five-year prison sentence for lying about her address to get her son into a better school and Huffman’s privilege of receiving a two-week sentence.
