“I’m watching with incredible respect and awe about how she’s handled all of this,” Brad tells Cody exclusively. “It’s not easy. This is a world where people are cynical. You can have an injury and people can be cynical…. It’s a moment in time in our nation and in our world where women are dealing with some of these things, and here’s someone not afraid to say, ‘Okay—look. I know what I’ve been through is something that can inspire others who have similar situations or wonder about how they look.”

Carrie recently returned to the limelight following a November fall that left her with a broken wrist and more than 40 stitches in her face.

Brad adds he’s “very proud” of Carrie for handling the aftermath of her injury “so well.”
