As for Carrie, who issued a statement on April 26 saying she needed to “focus on my well-being,” Amanda says the rest of the cast wants her to return as soon as possible, although the top priority is her health.
“I know she’s dealing with so much pain right now in her body, and I know that as a dancer, it’s the last thing she wants to deal with,” she adds.
In addition to appearing on The Talk, Amanda, who welcomed son Elvis with Nick in June 2019, is also working with online grocery platform Instacart on their “Beyond the Cart: A Year of Essential Insights” campaign. The project focuses on how shopping has evolved amid the pandemic and highlights individuals who have gone out of their way to assist others in getting groceries.
“You definitely can overlook some of these unsung heroes, but thank God for them, especially just for my life,” the TV personality says. “There was a time that I literally could not go to the grocery store because I was going to the hospital, and I was not allowed to really go anywhere else, or to keep Nick safe, nurses, doctors safe, myself safe, Elvis safe. So these people really did save my life, and I just encourage people to read their stories and to appreciate everything that they’ve done.”
