Amanda Kloots was financially devastated by Nick Cordero's hospital bills.

The actor died from COVID-19 related complications in March 2020, aged 41, and Amanda has now revealed that Nick's hospital treatment left her in a terrible financial situation.

The 42-year-old star - who married Nick in 2017 - said on the 'Richer Lives' podcast: "Nick was in the hospital for 95 days. His whole body was being run by machines.

"The ventilator alone was $3,000 a day … on top of the 20 other machines that were running his body."

Amanda was shocked by the cost of Nick's treatment.

The TV star - who had Elvis, five, with her late husband - shared: "When I heard that, I immediately was like, ‘What am I going to do?’ So you can imagine what the total bill was."

Amanda never actually imagined that Nick would pass away, despite his health struggles.

She said: "I never thought I was going to lose my husband.

"Up until the day he passed away, I really thought we were going to make it. So I don’t think the financial magnitude really really hit me until he passed away and calls were coming in … Unfortunately, death is a business."

Meanwhile, Amanda previously admitted that she finds being a working mom to be an "emotional rollercoaster".

The star confessed that she's struggled to find a healthy work/life balance.

Amanda wrote on Instagram: "Saying goodbye to this little guy just keeps getting harder and harder. We were both in tears today, holding each other tight, doing our handshake, hugging and kissing over and over. This is new…these types of goodbyes. He understands now when I have to leave him.

"The work/life balance as a working mother is so hard. I love work and I love my son. It's an emotional rollercoaster that I don't think you can fully understand until you do. (sic)"
