The 54-year-old TV star admits that she hasn’t been to church “since Derek’s illness”.

Her confession causes her to cry before taking a moment to pray.

“I haven’t been to church since Derek got sick,” she says.

“We went there regularly. Derek is a loyal churchgoer but we haven’t been in one yet and it feels like there is an incredible sense of peace.

“It actually makes me pretty emotional. Well, if you will ever pray in your life, this is where you will pray. “
