Sara Gilbert, your favorite childhood lesbian and star of television show Roseanne, came out during a press conference Wednesday at the Television Critics Association in Los Angeles. The 35-year-old former actress is the executive producer and co-host of upcoming talk show The Talk.
While being interviewed on a panel, she was asked if she was comfortable being “out” on The Talk. She responded saying:
“This is a whole new world for me. I’m not an expert on this, or I don’t analyze these things,” she explained later. “I’m just sort of living my life.”
“I don’t think [being out] will be a problem…I don’t ever really think of things as being out or in…I just think I am who I am, and when topics come up that are appropriate, I’ll talk about them and share when it seems right.”
Gilbert has two children with television producer Allison Adler. Their son, Levi, is 5, and their daughter, Sawyer, will turn 3 in August. Adler gave birth to Levi, while Gilbert gave birth to Sawyer. Good team work, girls. The two have been a couple since 2002.
The Talk will focus on six women from different backgrounds. The co-hosts include Gilbert, Marissa Jaret Winokour, Julie Chen, Leah Remini, Sharon Osbourne, and Robinson Peete.
“I’ve been acting my whole life, and I’ve never really discussed my personal life. This is a talk show…So obviously I’m going to be discussing my life more.”
I’m a fan of The View, so I’m interested to see how The Talk will turn out. Nothing like a bunch of women arguing over menopause, men, and politics! Will you be watching?
