The Talk co-hostess Amanda Kloots is doing remarkably well on Dancing With The Stars this year. In fact, she and her partner Alan Bersten are tied for first place with JoJo Siwa and Jenna Johnson right now. But how does she make it all work?
Parade recently had an interview with the former Broadway star to talk about balancing her hectic schedule.

In addition to The Talk and Dancing With The Stars, Amanda Kloots is raising her young son Elvis on her own. Her husband Nick Cordero passed away due to COVID-19 in 2020. But even so, she’s finding a way to make it all come together.
“I think, for me, time management, finding the time to do The Talk, to do the rehearsals, and to film Dancing with the Stars. But also, my No. 1 most important job in life is to be Elvis’ mom,” Amanda told Parade. “I think that’s going to be my most difficult challenge is to find the time and the space. And then also the balance in my own life to try to find an hour to get a massage or to sleep. It’ll definitely be that, especially if I’m lucky enough to keep going on in this competition.”
She added that on paper, it all works out perfectly.
“I go to The Talk and then I’ll go to rehearsals. I’ll go to The Talk and then go to film for the show. So, I’m just kind of keeping positive and hoping that on paper translates to real life.”
Does her dance background give The Talk co-hostess an unfair advantage?
Many DWTS fans quickly pointed out just how many competitors have professional dance backgrounds this year. Amanda Kloots is among them.
In addition to her Broadway background, Amanda also performed as a Rockette. But she doesn’t believe that’s giving her any special advantages in the ballroom. She compared learning ballroom to learning a brand new language.
“First of all, there’s a lot of us on the show this year that have previous dance experience, so that’s the first thing. The second thing is what I said about dancing this kind of dancing. Ballroom dancing is a completely different world, a completely different style, so detailed,” Amanda admitted to Parade. “I’ve also never partnered with a man on Broadway. I was always dancing on my own or as a Rockette, you dance on your own, so this whole being held by a man, being led by a man, is completely different, a whole new world. I wish I had an advantage there, but I don’t.”
