After nine seasons, the stars of The Big Bang Theory have been through thick and thin together.

"I think we're really blessed," Mayim Bialik, who plays Amy Farrah Fowler on the hit CBS comedy, gushed to E! News when she stopped by to chat about the current ninth season of the sitcom as well as her new website, "I think we're blessed more than people understand because I think when you hear that a cast gets along or functions like a family they think, 'Oh that's just lip service.'" 

Like a real-life family, the castmembers are there to support each other and they've done just that in wake of Kaley Cuoco's recent divorce (the actress announced her split from Ryan Sweeting after just 21 months of marriage on Friday).

"Kaley's amazing," Bialik said when asked how her close pal and co-star is doing following her breakup. "She has amazing friends, she has amazing family."

Of course, Cuoco's co-stars are rallying around the blond beauty, and according to Bialik, laughter truly is the best medicine.

"We love her to pieces and we give her as much joy and laughs as we give everybody who sees the stuff that we do but she gets to experience it off camera," the mother of two said with a smile.

While it's tough to find a cast that's equally as close both on and off-screen, Bialik thinks of her co-stars as her second family.  

"We spend more time with each other than we do with our own families, honestly," the 39-year-old beauty admitted, adding, "There's a lot of things you see in the press and there's a lot of things you don't see in the press that go on in our lives….but for the most part, we function like a really well-oiled family machine and we're grateful for that."
