Amanda Kloots is taking part in the new season of DWTS

"It's been seven years since I've danced and performed. In those years, I created a fitness business, became a mom, moved to a new city, went through the worst possible time in my life and then became an author and a talk show host. That girl I knew seven years ago I don't really know anymore but I'm determined to find her again!"

Amanda's husband, Nick Cordero, died after COVID-19 complications in July 2020.
