"Back in September 2018, I was in a beautiful, great, best relationship of my life with a woman named Amie Harwick," started on his radio show Drew Carey's Friday Night Freak-Out."She was a sex therapist and mental health advocate. She had a PhD and a master’s degree, and she was beautiful and fun, and cared deeply about people and improving their lives and was just a joy to be around. I was so in love with her."

Drew was mourning the loss of his ex-fiance.

Amie Harwich died last month after she fell from her third-story balcony. Her ex-boyfriend, Gareth Pursehouse, was arrested in connection with her death.

"Even though we broke up the engagement, I was still so in love with her. And she loved me back," the comedian said. "I could never hear these songs again without thinking of her... I loved her very much."

Drew Carey fought back tears as he talked about his ex on the radio show. He clearly was torn.

Carey would then describe the young doctor as a beautiful woman who didn't deserve to have this happen to her. He just couldn't believe that she died the way that she did.

When they were still together. Drew shared his radio sets with Amie and even made a set just for her.

"We would sing the words in each other's ears," he said. "We would hold each other and dance in the kitchen to it and slow dance in the bathroom to it, and the office, living room or where we were.

He continued, "I would hold her and we would hold hands in the car and listen to it. We would sing to each other. All these songs were so important to us and I want to play them for you, so you can hear how much we loved each other through these songs."

Later in the show, Drew admitted that he was in no shape to entertain anybody or run a show so he was going to take a couple weeks off.

"In Friday's episode, Carey's setlist included Frankie Valli and the 4 Seasons' 'Can't Take My Eyes Off You,' Rascals' 'A Girl Like You' and Three Dog Night's 'Old Fashioned Love Song.'" reported

Drew Carey also shared a petition to get domestic violence laws changed to help cased like Harwicks.

Hopefully soon, Carey will feel good enough to return to entertaining the masses and picking up people's spirits. But for now, the comedian and host need some time to heal and that is ok.
