Amanda Kloots is shutting down social media trolls after receiving negative comments about her personal life choices.

Kloots, 39, who is a co-host on "The Talk," announced on Friday's episode that she has started to date again one year after the death of her husband Nick Cordero

In an Instagram Story, the mother of one called attention to a comment a user wrote that reads, "Dating already Wow that was fast."

"How dare you judge anyone especially someone going through this process. I will address this soon guys I promise. There's too much to say and too much that widows deal with to not talk about it. Until then I will call out anyone who is rude enough to comment like this," Kloots wrote over a screenshot of the comment.

Kloots explained on "The Talk" that dating again at 39 isn't easy.

"Both of my husbands, I met doing Broadway shows. We became friends first, then we got married. Obviously with Nick, we had a child," she said. "I've never actually had to date. I just started dating again and it is so crazy to be dating for the first time at 39 years old. And it's quite terrifying and really out of your element, and it's just hard. It is hard."

The fitness instructor was previously married to stage actor David Larsen before Cordero.

"I am in disbelief and hurting everywhere. My heart is broken as I cannot imagine our lives without him. Nick was such a bright light. He was everyone’s friend, loved to listen, help and especially talk. He was an incredible actor and musician. He loved his family and loved being a father and husband. Elvis and I will miss him in everything we do, everyday," Kloots wrote on Instagram after his death.

Cordero was hospitalized on March 30 and had a succession of health setbacks, including mini-strokes, blood clots, septic infections, a tracheostomy and a temporary pacemaker implanted. He had been on a ventilator and unconscious and had his right leg amputated. 

He played a mob soldier with a flair for the dramatic in 2014 in Broadway’s Woody Allen 1994 film adaptation of "Bullets Over Broadway," for which he received a Tony nomination for best featured actor in a musical. He moved to Los Angeles to star in "Rock of Ages."

Amanda Kloots slams trolls criticizing her for getting back into dating after Nick Cordero's death

Daily Mail 25 July, 2021 - 08:10am

By Brian Marks For Dailymail.com

She announced Friday on The Talk that she was finally trying her hand at dating again just over a year after her husband Nick Cordero died from complications of Covid-19.

But Amanda Kloots' optimistic news was greeted by some critical comments from social media users blasting her for moving on 'too quickly.'

The 39-year-old fitness instructor–turned–television host wasn't having it and took to her Instagram Stories to call out a rude commenter.

Not taking it: Amanda Kloots, 39, struck back at a social media troll who criticized her for dating too soon after her husband Nick Cordero died last year from complications of Covid-19

Amanda originally posted a sizzling snap of herself in a cream-colored tube top with matching high-waisted shirts and a jacket that she left open to showcase her stunning fit figure.

'Who else remembers watching movies as a kid wanting to BE that girl in the movie?! The Kloots girls watched the movie Can't Buy Me Love probably a thousand times wanting to be Cindi Mancini and wishing we could wear her famous white outfit that causes the whole drama with a very young Patrick Dempsey!' she wrote. 

'Anyone with us?! Well, yesterday I got to live out my Cindi Mancini dreams thanks to @shopthebrightside and @rocky_barnes and I couldn’t have loved it more!!!'

Later on Friday, she posted a screenshot of an offending comment to her Insta Stories.

Dropping bombs: After posting a sizzling photo inspired by the '80s rom-com Can't Buy Me Love, a troll commented, 'Datin already Wow that was fast'

None of their business: Amanda posted a screenshot and wrote, 'How dare you judge anyone especially someone going through this process.' She also promised to address it to her fans later

'Dating already Wow that was fast,' the user wrote.

Amanda sounded furious in her comment, even as she acknowledged it was a subject worth discussion down the line.

'How dare you judge anyone especially someone going through this process,' she captioned the screenshot.

'I will address this soon guys I promise. There's too much to say and too much that widows deal with to not talk about it. Until then I will call out anyone who is rude enough to comment like this.'

Puzzlingly, Amanda's post didn't even mention that she had started dating again, as she saved that for a brief announcement earlier in the day on The Talk.   

Moving on: Amanda revealed Friday on The Talk that she was dating for the first time following her husband Nick Cordero's death from Covid-19 on July 5, 2020

On The Talk, Amanda revealed that she was a total neophyte when it came to dating because she met both of her husbands at work on musical theater productions.

'Both of my husbands, I met doing Broadway shows. We became friends first, then we got married,' she explained. 

'Obviously with Nick, we had a child,' she continued, adding, 'I’ve never actually had to date.'

She found the experience of meeting new people intimidating now that she's in her late 30s. 

It's all new: Amanda revealed she never really dated and had met her first two husbands while working on Broadway. 'We became friends first, then we got married,' she explained

Intimidating: 'I just started dating again and it is so crazy to be dating for the first time at 39 years old,' she admitted. 'And it’s quite terrifying and really out of your element, and it’s just hard. It is hard'

'I just started dating again and it is so crazy to be dating for the first time at 39 years old,' Amanda admitted. 'And it’s quite terrifying and really out of your element, and it’s just hard. It is hard.'

But even if she was scared about making herself available again, she seemed upbeat about her experiences when her co-host Elaine Welteroth asked how things were going so far.

'It’s all wonderful,' she said. 'It’s wonderful people I’m meeting, and it’s been a great process so far. But I’ll just say it’s very hard without getting into too many details.'

Earlier this month, the new TV host remembered her late husband Nick Cordero on the one-year anniversary of his death.

'Today hurts, there is no other way around it. One year ago you left us and became our angel in heaven,' she wrote to her 669K Instagram followers while posting a montage of loving scenes between the former couple.  

Mixed emotions: 'It’s wonderful people I’m meeting, and it’s been a great process so far,' she continued. 'But I’ll just say it’s very hard without getting into too many details'

Looking back: On July 5, she marked one year without her husband Nick Cordero in a heartbreaking Instagram post. 'What happened was unthinkable, losing you was my biggest fear'

She wrote that the Broadway star was 'surrounded by so much love' in his finals days. 

'What happened was unthinkable, losing you was my biggest fear,' she continued. 'I used to tell you all the time, “Don’t you dare go anywhere. If I lost you, I don’t know what I’d do."'

Although their marriage was short-lived, she said their romance would have an enduring impact on her life.

'We only had a few short years together but they were filled with so much love, laughter, adventure, dreams, change and growth. It was my “Nick era” and I’ll have it forever.' 

Nick died on July 5 of last year, after spending 95 days in the hospital, first battling the effects of Covid-19, then the last damage it caused to his body even after it overcame the virus.

During the ordeal, his right leg had to be amputated, and he suffered mini-strokes and developed scars in his lungs before succumbing.

Long fight: Nick spent 95 days in the hospital battling Covid-19, but even after he overcame the virus his body was too ravaged by its effects to go on. He and Amanda shared a two-year-old son Elvis

Later this month, Amanda showed how much their son Elvis had grown as she celebrated his first day of preschool.

The little boy showed off an adorable smile while wearing a cute T-shirt and matching shorts covered in smiley faces as he put on his backpack for school.

'I was doing fine but all of a sudden got super emotional. Another part of grief you have to face that you don't realize until the moment,' his mother wrote on a photo of the backpack she packed for him.

'Nick should be here. We should be doing this together. Chin up. Brave face,' she added.

First day! Amanda got emotional later in the month as Elvis headed off for his first day of preschool

Amanda Kloots Calls Out Person Who Criticized Her Dating After Husband Nick Cordero's Death

Entertainment Tonight 25 July, 2021 - 08:10am

"How dare you judge anyone especially someone going through this process," the fitness instructor wrote on her Instagram Story. "I will address this soon guys I promise. There's too much to say and too much that widows deal with to not talk about it."

She added that "until then I will call out anyone who is rude enough to comment like this."

Kloots first revealed that she started dating again during Friday's episode of The Talk. The mother-of-one shared that she met her former husbands while doing Broadway shows and "never actually had to date."

"I just started dating again and it is so crazy to be dating for the first time at 39 years old," she told her co-hosts, admitting, "It's quite terrifying and really out of your element, and it's just hard. It is hard."

She did add that so far her experience dating has been "all wonderful. It's wonderful people I'm meeting, and it's been a great process so far. But I'll just say it's very hard without getting into too many details."

Kloots first marriage was to actor David Larsen. They were together for six years before their divorce. She then met Cordero while working on Bullets Over Broadway. They were married from 2017 until his death in 2020. Cordero and Kloots shared son Elvis, who was born in 2019.

In June, ET spoke to Kloots about how she's managed being a single mom after Cordero's tragic death. The actor died from complications of COVID-19 last year.

"I have a lot of help. I couldn't do it without my help," Kloots told ET of being a single mom, a topic she touched on in her new book, Live Your Life. "I have five jobs. I'm working around the clock and then I spend every single second I can with Elvis. I have a great group of friends that run to my aid and rescue as much as possible, and my family."

She also shared that she makes sure to tell Elvis about his dad every chance she gets.

"I tell him so much. I am just so persistent [about] keeping him aware that his dada is around," she said. "We listen to Nick's music all the time. As soon as I put on 'Live Your Life,' he starts banging his head like he's in a rock band. It's the cutest thing. We have pictures of Nick everywhere. He kisses this one every night before we go to bed. Before I put him in his crib, I tell him [about] the dreams that he's going to have and they always entail Nick taking him on some sort of adventure."

Amanda Kloots Fires Back After Being Criticized for Dating a Year After Nick Cordero's Death

E! NEWS 25 July, 2021 - 08:10am

On Friday, July 23, the dance and fitness instructor and The Talk co-host announced on the CBS show that she had started to date, a year after losing her second husband Nick Cordero. The Broadway actor and father of their now 2-year-old son Elvis died of COVID-19 complications at age 41 in July 2020 after a lengthy hospitalization.

"Both of my husbands, I met doing Broadway shows. We became friends first and then got married. Obviously, with Nick we had a child," Amanda said on The Talk. "I've never actually had to date and I just started dating again and it is so crazy to be dating for the first time at 39 years old. And it's quite terrifying and really out of your element and it's hard. It is hard."

She continued, "It's all wonderful. It's wonderful people I'm meeting and it's been a great process so far. But I would say it's very hard, without getting into too many details, it's very hard."

Later, on an unrelated Instagram post that Amanda had shared, a person commented, "Dating already Wow that was fast." The star responded, "How dare you judge anyone especially someone going through this process."

Amanda continued, "I will address this soon guys I promise. There's too much to say and too much that widows deal with to not talk about it. Until then I will call out anyone who is rude enough to comment like this."

Earlier this month, Amanda honored Nick on the one-year anniversary of his death with a photo montage on Instagram.

"One year," she wrote. "Today hurts, there is no other way around it. One year ago you left us and became our angel in heaven. You were surrounded by so much love and Led Zeppelin playing on Spotify-no doubt that was your doing, not mine. What happened was unthinkable, losing you was my biggest fear. I used to tell you all the time, 'Don't you dare go anywhere. If I lost you, I don't know what I'd do.'"

She continued, "There hasn't been a day this year where you weren't missed, thought about and talked about. Thank you for being our guardian angel, for sending me signs, for being my DJ in heaven. I know you're just 2" away. We only had a few short years together but they were filled with so much love, laughter, adventure, dreams, change and growth. It was my 'Nick era' and I'll have it forever."

Amanda Kloots is 'dating again' one year after losing husband Nick Cordero to COVID

Page Six 25 July, 2021 - 08:10am

July 24, 2021 | 10:42am

Amanda Kloots is “dating again” following the 2020 death of her husband, Broadway star Nick Cordero, from COVID-19 complications.

“Both of my husbands, I met doing Broadway shows. We became friends first, then we got married. Obviously with Nick, we had a child,” she explained on Friday’s episode of “The Talk.” “I’ve never actually had to date.”

Kloots was previously married to stage actor David Larsen. She and Cordero tied the knot in 2017.

“I just started dating again and it is so crazy to be dating for the first time at 39 years old,” she went on. “And it’s quite terrifying and really out of your element, and it’s just hard. It is hard.”

Even still, the television host has enjoyed dipping her toes into the dating pool, adding, “It’s all wonderful. It’s wonderful people I’m meeting, and it’s been a great process so far. But I’ll just say it’s very hard without getting into too many details.”

Cordero died July 2020 at the age of 41 after a months-long battle with coronavirus complications. While hospitalized, the thespian suffered mini-strokes, lung infections and the amputation of one of his legs.

A day after Cordero’s passing, professional dancer Kloots shared a touching slideshow of their family, titling the clip “Silver Linings.”

“I have always been lucky to have a family that loves to be together and to support each other,” she captioned the video at the time. “I’m even luckier to have Nicks family and extended family that are the same.”

“In times of trauma, look for the silver linings,” Kloots added. “Spend time with family. Smile through the tears. Have faith when things seem impossible. Love one another.”

Kloots and Cordero share son Elvis, who was just 11 months old when his father passed away.

Amanda Kloots Slams Claims That She Moved On 'Fast' After Husband's Death

inTouch Weekly 24 July, 2021 - 03:36pm

Amanda Kloots isn’t too concerned about what others have to say when it comes to her personal life. The Talk host fired back at comments saying she moved on “fast” following husband Nick Cordero’s death after she revealed she recently started “dating again.”

The fitness guru, 39, gave the update on her love life during the Friday, July 23 episode of the CBS talk show. Amanda got candid about the “terrifying” experience of entering the dating scene more than a year after Nick died at age 41 from COVID-19 complications.

Hours after revealing she’s slowly getting herself back out there, Amanda took to her Instagram Story to comment on the negative response she received. Sharing a screenshot of a message that read, “Dating already wow that was fast,” the TV star had no qualms about sounding off on her frustration.

“How dare you judge anyone especially someone going through this process,” Amanda penned, tagging the user who left the rude remark on her page. “I will address this soon guys I promise. There’s too much to say and too much that widows deal with to not talk about it,” she added. “Until then, I will call out anyone who is rude enough to comment like this.”

On The Talk, the mom of one — who shares 2-year-old son Elvis with the late Broadway star — didn’t divulge much about her journey dating, including whether or not she has a boyfriend. However, Amanda opened up about the really “hard” transition of going from a wife to a widow.

“Both of my husbands, I met doing Broadway shows. We became friends first, then we got married. Obviously with Nick, we had a child,” the Live Your Life author explained, noting because she fell in love with Nick shortly after her divorce from ex-husband David Larsen, she “never actually had to date.”

“I just started dating again and it is so crazy to be dating for the first time at 39 years old. It’s quite terrifying and really out of your element, and it’s just hard,” Amanda continued. “It’s wonderful people I’m meeting, and it’s been a great process so far. But I’ll just say it’s very hard without getting into too many details.”

The Hooray For co-owner was married to the Going in Style actor for three years, having said “I do” in September 2017. The couple welcomed their beloved son, Elvis, in June 2019, and moved their family from New York to Los Angeles before Nick was diagnosed with coronavirus. The star died after a 95-day battle with COVID-19 in July 2020.
