Brooke and her husband, James Fletcher, have been quarantined for eight days and counting.

In a recent Instagram post, Brooke revealed that she broke down while going out to grab a pizza pie with her hubby. 

"Well, THIS is the moment when I lost it tonight... carrying pizza down a eerily silent Sixth Ave," she explained. "I’ve been in my apartment for 8 days, like many of you, and this was my one outing of the day... to give my hubs a break from cooking and to give my local pizza shop a little love."

She went on to share how she tried to convince herself that everything is normal but she was suddenly hit with a wave of sadness due to the lack of noise and people on the usually busy NYC street. 

"I made myself take several very deep breaths. And then, as I wiped my tears, I asked my husband take this photo [sic]," she continued. "No one knows how long this will last. And if you’re down or frustrated or just full-on “WTF” — I am right there with you. But I’ll be damned if I’m not going to take a good long look at myself and what I take for granted and who I can help along the way."

Last year, she did give viewers a scare when she had to leave her show early due to an ocular migraine. 

"Ocular migraine. I get ‘em about once a year. And in 20 years of doing live TV... that had never happened on set til today," she tweeted at the time. "I suddenly couldn’t see. HUGE props to my girl @brikeilarcnn for hopping in the seat with 2 mins notice. Going home to sit in the dark." 

Luckily, Brooke will be back on our TV screens giving us the news in no time.
