It's no secret CBS's popular daytime chat fest needed a change. Rumors of tensions on set between cohosts swirled for months following Sharon Osbourne's explosive exit from the show when the 69-year-old came under fire after defending old friend Piers Morgan's insensitive and controversial comments about Meghan Markle.

But according to the former Dancing with the Stars finalist, inviting a fresh face to join the team has eased anxieties and brought everyone together as a family.

"Oh, Natalie is just wonderful," Kloots gushes to OK! about the new cohost. "You know, I think she just solidified the bond that the four of us were already having and she is such a joy. She's such a pro."

Morales joined the daytime talk show after an incredible 22 years at NBC News. The 49-year-old TV personality made regular appearances on NBC Nightly News, Dateline, and Today, but after more than two decades with the network, the mother-of-two was ready for a change and decided to bring her knowledge and enthusiasm to The Talk.

Despite past upsets with the revolving door of cohosts, the New York Times best selling author claims that bringing Morales on board has made The Talk "a joyous place to work every single day."

"It was honestly such an easy transition. It really was," the mother-of-one dishes. "She kind of came on and put on that role and it just worked, you know? It was like the missing link that we didn't know we needed and and it's just been great."

Kloots notes that she formed the same kind of immediate connection with Morales that she was fortunate enough to have with The Talk additions Jerry O' Connell and Akbar Gbaja-Biamila.

"It really feels like the five of us were kind of always meant to be together and work together," she reveals. "It's just such a blessing."
