US Magazine reported that since Saget’s death, his wife Kelly Rizzo has bonded with “The Talk” co-host Amanda Kloots, whose Broadway star husband Nick Cordero died of COVID-19 at the age of 41 back in July of 2020. 

“New friends in a club we didn’t ever think we’d be in. So grateful to now know this strong woman, sharing stories only helps this rollercoaster we are on. ❤️,” Kloots captioned an Instagram photo of herself with Rizzo on Sunday.

Saget ‘Put It All Out There’

“He put it all out there. He told everyone that he loved, and I mean, quite frankly anyone he met — even spend any time with at all — he told them he loved them endlessly, and tirelessly, and that was his entire message,” Rizzo stated as she struggled to hold back tears.

“If you knew Bob, and he loved you, you knew it,” she continued. “There was never ever a doubt in your mind. I mean, even at his memorial, there were a lot of people there and every single person was pretty much like, ‘Oh, I talked to Bob last week.’ I’m like, ‘How did he have the time to talk to everybody and tell everybody that he loved them? All the time.’ It was just amazing.”
