Lisa opened up about the tragic loss in an appearance on "The View" in December 2010, revealing that after she'd been pregnant for nine weeks, she was told her baby had no heartbeat.

"[I] felt more like a failure than I'd felt in a very long time," she said at the time, adding that she feared it may happen again, and leave her "devastated."

After her miscarriage, she began a website, Secret Society of Women, where women can share their personal experiences.
