The two reality television celebrities bonded, as Amanda lost her husband Nick Cordero to coronavirus in 2020 and Michael lost his wife to cancer in 2017.
As fans saw the two stars finally meet in person, they hoped the two could rediscover love with each other.
Amanda opened up to Us Weekly about her date and said: “People in our lives kept telling up both that we should meet based on how much we have in common.
“So we eventually started connecting over social media. When you are a widow and single parent, it is so wonderful to meet people that are in your same boat. It makes you feel less alone.”
She continued to share that it was “so nice” to connect with Michael in person and she felt as if they had “been friends for years” when they grabbed a burger and drinks together in Ohio.

DANCING WITH THE STARS
Amanda was saved by the judges after an emotional dance dedicated to her late husband on the latest season of Dancing With The Stars.
She had said that she had wanted to at some point in the competition dance to Nick’s song Live Your Life.
She told season 28 winner and now dance partner Alan Bersten how important the song is to her and how it was played during the final few minutes Nick had left.
She went on to explain how painful it was turning the machine off because all she could do is hold his hand as he was in a coma, she said: “To me the power of holding someone’s hand is so, there is just nothing like it because you know you have someone that has you,”
“I just wanted him to know that I had him.” she said
“To be able to put a beautiful dance to one of my husband’s songs I don’t know if there could be anything more special or meaningful to me. Let’s do this for everybody who has lost someone and for Nick”.
All judges were moved by Amanda’s and Alan’s emotional performance.
I’m sure you touched the heart of the nation,’ said Bruno. ‘This is beyond critique. I lived something with you tonight. He’s proud of you and he’s smiling on you.’
Judge Carrie Ann Inaba, told Amanda that she transcended beauty and perfection and that there were no words.
Show host Tyra Banks, asked Amanda is she had anything to say to those that are grieving the pain of losing someone.
“When you are grieving you feel so alone. But I had such an amazing support system. There is something out there for you and you can connect with people”.
The judges gave her a perfect score of 40 out of 40, however, they entered the bottom two of the competition alongside Olympic gymnastic gold medalist Suni Lee, 18, and her pro partner Sasha Farber, 37.
Ultimately, the judges voted for Amanda to stay another week in the competition.Michael lost his wife, Laura, to cancer in 2017 as he takes care of his now 4-year-old son[/caption] Amanda lost her husband Nick Cordero to coronavirus in 2020[/caption] Amanda and Nick both connected over drinks as fans beg them to date[/caption]
