"If I'm shooting a show at a flea market, I have Amber and Robin in mind as I'm walking around," Lara told HELLO!. "Then if there is a break for lunch and I know I need a little trinket for the top of their coffee table, I'll take a spin at the flea market, send them pictures and grab what they like on the way out." 

Lara confessed that Robin is one of her "closest friends," adding: "She's like a girlfriend or sister to me."

The ABC star - who is a cancer survivor - shared the news that her beloved partner of 17 years had been diagnosed with cancer back in February, mentioning that she would be going through rounds of chemotherapy as well.

Most recently during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the TV star disclosed: "She's doing well, which is great," before telling the TV host how Amber found out she had cancer.

"Like many people, she had put off going to the doctor during the pandemic," she said. "And at the end of last year, she followed through with a regular exam and it was discovered. The message is 'get those regular exams, it could save your life,'" she concluded to a round of applause from the audience.
