Niecy Nash, who had a small part in The Proposal, tells PEOPLE she is hopeful that Sandra Bullock can find some measure of strength through the adversity of her husband’s alleged infidelity.

“I believe that the things that don’t kill you make you a stronger and better person,” says the actress. “My prayer for her would be that she doesn’t stop loving. Don’t ever stop believing in love, because it’s real, and even though you may have had a tough time with it, hang in there.”

Nash, 40, who this season is a contestant on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars, got divorced from her husband, Don Nash, in 2007 after more than a decade together. They have three children.
