Having good and bad times at home

The television personality shared how she’d told her husband that they were now a team. She honestly revealed how they’d had some “messy” moments “like tons of laundry but really beautiful moments, too.”

The star also shared that she was homeschooling her daughters. She joked how the task has given her new-found respect for teachers.

She’d initially taken time off to spend with her children during spring break, but the coronavirus outbreak called for an extended stay. Speaking to her fans in a video, she confessed that she missed them and the show.
