Sara Gilbert, who made a name for herself in Hollywood as daughter Darlene Conner on a decade’s worth of ‘Roseanne,’ came out publicly about her partner and her sexuality Thursday at a panel discussion for her upcoming CBS show ‘The Talk.’

At the Television Critics Assn. summer press tour in Beverly Hills, Gilbert spoke openly about raising a boy and a girl with her partner, TV producer Allison Adler (the kids were born in 2004 and 2007). She’ll be discussing motherhood, parenting and more soon on ‘The Talk’ with co-hosts Julie Chen, Sharon Osbourne,Holly Robinson Peete, Leah Remini and Marissa Jaret Winokur.

Press materials for the show hadn’t mentioned Adler in Gilbert’s bio -- a decision the actress said was hers, not the network’s, according to Entertainment Weekly.


‘I’ve been acting my whole life, and I’ve never really discussed my personal life. This is a talk show,’ Gilbert said. ‘So obviously, I’m going to be discussing my life more, and I felt that the first place I wanted to do it wasn’t in a CBS press release.

‘It just seemed impersonal, and I felt like I’d rather come in person and talk to you about all that stuff here.”
