'It's just so fresh for me, I don't really feel comfortable talking about it,' the model told the hosts.

'It's something I'm definitely not going to get into at this moment, but I'm sure everybody can relate to heartbreak.'

US Weekly initially confirmed the couple's break up on Saturday, with a source telling the outlet, 'It had to do with the distance and them barely seeing each other.'
The source added that Amendola also wasn’t happy that Culpo’s posed nude for Sports Illustrated's Swimsuit issue last month - and that things had been strained between the two since he relocated to Florida two weeks ago.
The confirmation followed rumors of a break-up, sparked when the Miami Dolphin wide receiver unfollowed his girlfriend on Instagram and deleted all their couple shots.

Olivia and Danny were together for just over two years, having made the relationship Instagram official in February 2016.
Just weeks ago, the loved-up couple were enjoying a romantic getaway in the Bahamas, complete with sultry photos shared on social media.
Wearing a tiny nude bikini while posing in the arms of her man, she added the caption, 'The drug.... love.'

Work it in white like Olivia Culpo
Olivia Culpo cut a stylish figure as we caught up with her in Los Angeles. The former Miss Universe was seen working a chic monochromatic ensemble from her latest collaboration with Marled for Revolve.
Working an off-the-shoulder silhouette with a crisp white shirt dress, she styled the clean look with a graphic bold black belt and peep-toe suede thigh-high boots.
We love the contrast of the black and white, while adding the belt cinches the waist and why not finish off the look with a classic Chanel bag?

How things change: 'I was a chubby little band geek,' said the model
'I was a chubby little band geek,' said the model.
'I had a crazy growth spurt over the course of one summer. I went back to school and people didn't even know who I was.
'It was an awkward stage, and when I turned 13 everything changed.
'I could carry my cello a little better. I slimmed out. I was like, 'Oh I'm not geeky anymore.''
