Sara Gilbert Reacts to Her Romance Going Public

The Talk

The Talk co-host and executive producer Sara Gilbert was photographed unexpectedly on Sunday with her new significant other, songwriter Linda Perry. On Tuesday's episode of The Talk, Gilbert confessed to harboring ambivalent feelings towards the lack of privacy that comes with fame.

"I'm flattered and I can't believe that anyone cares, " the former Roseanne star admitted. "I do want to share stuff with [the audience] but I guess I kind of want to do it on my terms when I'm in full hair and makeup."

Gilbert went on to explain her philosophy on guarding her privacy and how that affected her decision to take a co-hosting job on The Talk.

"When I decided to do this show I wasn't sure ... I kind of came up with the idea I guess, but then I wasn't even sure if I wanted to be a host because I knew as soon as I started to do that I would be talking about my personal life a little bit more."

Earlier this year, Sara opened up to her co-hosts about her painful breakup with TV producer Allison Adler. The couple had been together for 10 years.
