The Tony-nominated Cordero appeared in stage productions of A Bronx Tale, Bullets Over Broadway, The Toxic Avenger, Rock of Ages and Waitress.
In addition to a short message and video she shared on Monday’s episode of The Talk, Kloots posted a longer remembrance on her own on Instagram page.
“Today hurts, there is no other way around it,” Kloots wrote on Instagram, where she posted a video clips in Cordero’s memory. “One year ago you left us and became our angel in heaven. You were surrounded by so much love and Led Zeppelin playing on Spotify-no doubt that was your doing, not mine. What happened was unthinkable, losing you was my biggest fear.
