On Tuesday, Nicky appeared on “CBS This Morning” and admitted she and her family haven’t watched an episode of the iconic game show since the star died in November.
“Well, to be honest, I have not watched, I have not watched one, my family hasn’t watched any at all,” she admitted. “… I resigned from the show in November just after he passed before Thanksgiving. To me, it was his show. It was his show and it’s difficult for me to carry on in this show.”
Nicky also spoke about how she’s creating a team, in honor of her dad, for the virtual Purple Stride Walk benefiting pancreatic cancer
“I just want to carry on his legacy, honor his fight,” she said. “It’s really hard to explain…. I think we all still thought he was gonna beat it. It was one of those things where he is invincible and so extraordinary and so many things he does in life and it was just, I’m not sure how to put it into words.”
