She announced on The Talk Friday that she was finally trying to date again, just over a year after her husband Nick Cordero died of complications from Covid-19.
But Amanda Kloots’ optimistic news was greeted by some critical comments from social media users who criticized her for moving on “too fast.”
The 39-year-old fitness instructor turned TV host didn’t have it and took to her Instagram Stories to yell out a rude commentator.
Don’t take: Amanda Kloots, 39, hit back at a social media troll who criticized her for dating too fast after husband Nick Cordero died of complications from Covid-19 last year
Amanda originally posted a sizzling photo of herself in a cream tube top with matching high-waisted shirts and a jacket that she left open to show off her gorgeous fit figure.
“Who else remembers watching movies as a kid and wanting to BE that girl in the movie?! The girls at Kloots probably watched the movie Can’t Buy Me Love a thousand times because they wanted to be Cindi Mancini and wish we could wear her famous white outfit that causes all the drama with a very young Patrick Dempsey!’ she wrote.
‘Someone with us?! Well yesterday I was able to make my Cindi Mancini dreams come true thanks to @shopthebrightside and @rocky_barnes and I couldn’t have loved it more!!!’
Later on Friday, she posted a screenshot of an insulting comment on her Insta Stories.
Drop bombs: After posting a sizzling photo inspired by the 80s rom-com Can’t Buy Me Love, a troll commented: ‘Datin al Wow, that was fast’
It’s none of their business: Amanda posted a screenshot and wrote, “How dare you judge someone, especially someone going through this process.” She also promised to tell her fans later
“Dating already Wow, that was fast,” the user wrote.
Amanda sounded furious in her comment, even though she acknowledged it was a topic worth discussing.
“How dare you judge anyone, especially someone going through this process,” she captioned the screenshot.
“I’ll get into this soon, guys, I promise. There is too much to say and too much for widows to not talk about. Until then, I’ll yell at anyone rude enough to make such a comment.”
Strangely, 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 on The Talk Friday that she was first dating after 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, as she met both of her husbands while working on musical theater productions.
“I met both my husbands on Broadway shows. We became friends first, then we got married,” she explained.
“Obviously we had a child with Nick,” she continued, adding, “I’ve never actually been on a date.”
She found the experience of meeting new people intimidating now that she is in her late thirties.
It’s all new: Amanda revealed that she never really dated, having 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’s so crazy to be dating for the first time at 39,” she admitted. “And it’s pretty terrifying and really not in your element, and it’s just hard. It is difficult’
“I just started dating again and it’s so crazy to be dating for the first time at 39,” Amanda admitted. “And it’s pretty terrifying and really not in your element, and it’s just hard. It is difficult.’
But even if she feared making herself available again, she seemed optimistic about her experience when her co-host Elaine asked Welteroth how things were going so far.
“It’s all great,” she said. “They’re great people I’ve met, and it’s been a great process so far. But I’m just saying it’s very difficult without going into too much detail.’
Earlier this month, the new TV host commemorated her late husband Nick Cordero on the one-year anniversary of his death.
“Today hurts, there is no other way. A year ago you left us and became our angel in heaven,’ she wrote to her 669K Instagram followers as she posted a montage of loving scenes between the former couple.
Mixed feelings: “They’re great people I meet, and it’s been a great process so far,” she continued. “But I’m just saying it’s very difficult without going into too much detail”
Looking back: On July 5, she was a year without her husband Nick Cordero in a heartbreaking Instagram post. ‘What happened was unthinkable, losing you was my greatest fear’
She wrote that the Broadway star was “surrounded by so much love” in his final days.
“What happened was unimaginable, losing you was my greatest fear,” she continued. “I used to say to you, ‘Don’t you dare go anywhere. If I lost you, I don’t know what I would do.”
Although their marriage was short-lived, she said their romance would have a lasting 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 will have it forever.’
Nick died on July 5 last year, after spending 95 days in hospital battling the effects of Covid-19 first and then the final damage to his body even after it had overcome the virus.
During the ordeal, his right leg had to be amputated, and he suffered mini-strokes and developed scarring in his lungs before he succumbed.
Long battle: Nick spent 95 days in the hospital battling Covid-19, but even after he conquered the virus, his body was too ravaged by its effects to continue. 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 kindergarten.
The little boy showed off an adorable smile as he wore a cute T-shirt and matching shorts covered in smiley faces as he put on his backpack for school.
“I was doing well, but all of a sudden I got super emotional. You don’t realize another part of the grief you have to face until now,” his mother wrote with a photo of the backpack she had packed for him.
“Nick should be here. We should do this together. Chin up. Brave face,” she added.
