Kaley Cuoco‘s impromptu Instagram series “A Cup of Cuoco” is back. The 34-year-old actress appeared on her morning show on Thursday – Kaley did say that she felt it was “inappropriate” to do one this past week following the tragic death of NBA legend Kobe Bryant.
While Kaley focused heavily on the passing of 41-year-old Kobe, his 13-year-old daughter Gianna, and the seven others aboard the fatal helicopter crash last weekend, she did speak of other things. She was also showcasing a super-cute look that came with her usual fuss-free finish.

Kaley was looking drop-dead gorgeous. The “Big Bang Theory” actress was seated on a gray couch, contrasting it with her early morning look – Kaley was rocking a red-striped nightie with cute teddy bears on it, plus the makeup-free finish that one would expect from someone at 5.15 a.m. Messy bedhair also followed suit.
The nightie was from Thailand, and early riser Kaley did talk about her coffee creamer and new “The Flight Attendant” show, but she quickly turned to the subject of Kobe Bryant’s passing.
“It’s been a heavy week,” she said, before continuing to outline how she’d watched Kobe while growing up – “my whole life.”
Continuing, Kaley said: “I think it’s made everyone look at themselves and their loved ones.”
She also called the Los Angeles Lakes player “such a powerful being.”
“Losing Kobe and his beautiful daughter has made everything very eye-opening and… I just keep thinking about his beautiful wife,” she added.
Kaley then said that she felt it was “awkward to mention his family as if I know them” – “I don’t know them, I feel like I do,” she said of the sheer influence that Kobe had on her growing up and, likely, had on many.
Kaley was amid the many celebrities dedicating an Instagram post to Kobe as news of his death broke. She posted a photo of the basketball star, writing:
“Been sitting here for a few hours completely gutted by this news .. Kobe – this one is gonna hurt for a long long time.”
“I feel so lucky being able to witness your brilliance court side so many times including your record scoring game. I loved basketball because of you. I compared every athlete to you. You made your mark on this earth and will always be the GOAT. My future children will know it was you!! Deepest prayers for Kobe, GiGi, Vanessa their 3 daughters, the entire Bryant family and the additional lives that were also lost in today’s tragedy ? ???,” she added.
Kaley’s video also mentioned her new TV show. “The Flight Attendant” has officially wrapped up filming, and Kaley will soon be headed to New York City for two months.
“The Flight Attendant” sees Kaley play Cassandra Bowen, a woman who wakes up hungover in a Dubai hotel room – but she’s got a dead body lying next to her.
Also mentioned in the video was Kaley’s husband Karl Cook, with the star letting her billionaire heir spouse know how much she loves him.
