This past week, “The Talk” show theme was sharing secrets. On Thursday (Sept. 12), host Sara Gilbertconfessed her ‘little secret’ that during the “Rosanne” show, she cried when co-star Johnny Galecki kissed her.
Her and Galecki were dating off the set back then but as a young adult (teenager) she was questioning her own sexuality.
She revealed she had a crush on Galecki and thought he was “super cute.” It was when the two would ‘make-out’ that she would feel depressed. Her depressive mood was apparent to Galecki and it was at that time she decided to tell him she was a lesbian. Gilbert said he was “super sweet” about it and kept her secret all these years. She was dating an older woman at the same time.
It wasn’t until 2010 did Gilbert ‘come out‘ as gay to the public but she still feels anxious about her sexuality. She said she is still “scared” about the public knowing she is a lesbian and it may be “costing” to her career.
Gilbert was a teenager when she starred in the “Rosanne” sitcom in the 90s. The show ran from 1988-1997. Galecki played her boyfriend/ and husband on the show.
