'The Talk's' Sara Gilbert engaged to girlfriend Linda Perry

'The Talk's' Sara Gilbert engaged to girlfriend Linda Perry

By Chris E. Hayner | April 8, 2013 4:46 PM ET

On Monday's episode of "The Talk," Sara Gilbert had exciting news to share with her fellow co-hosts. She announced her engagement to musician girlfriend Linda Perry. Gilbert told the audience that the proposal happened "about a week ago," and caught her by surprise.

Gilbert says she and Perry were in a park eating, when people with string instruments showed up and began playing "Love Song," by The Cure. She says the couple had decided that particular tune would be "their song," as another favorite between them, John Waite's "Missing You," was about a breakup.

As the song played, Perry popped the question. "She goes to her backpack and she pulls out these T-shirts and the first T-shirt says 'will' and then puts on another T-shirt and it says, 'you,' then 'marry,' 'me.' And the last one's a question mark," Gilbert says, "It's the most amazing proposal ever."

The surprises didn't end there, as Perry then introduced Waite, and he played their other song, "Missing You." "We had our proposal with our breakup song," Gilbert says, "which is great."

Gilbert went on to thank fans of the show for their support of gay marriage, and allowing her to feel comfortable talking about the event. " I wanted you guys to know because I feel like you're a part of our family here."

The proposal couldn't have been more lesbian.

Run Sara Run!

She has to be the most boring lesbian ever.

Awww..they picked a great song, too.

Was Sara publicly out before this?

I thought Sara was with another woman. The one she has children with?

r9, I know I may be behind on Sara Gilbert's but you have been under a rock.

Oh, dear. Linda Perry's been known as a serial dater of celesbians for years. Run, Sara, run.

I knew Sara Gilbert was gay...

Sara looks like she needs a shower...bad

by Anonymousreply 1604/08/2013

Gross. Does Linda Perry still have those disgusting dreadlocks? Gross.

They both look like they have dubious personal hygiene, so in that respect I'm sure it will work out quite well for them.

That whole Roseanne show was hard on the eyes and it looked like no one warshed.

And Gilbert's looks grew so tiresome--I thought it was part of that act that she was a sloppy teenager but evidently she's like that in real life.

Is being a sloppy dresser some kind of signal to other gay women that you are one of them?

by Anonymousreply 1804/08/2013

They are both going to Hell!

T-shirts? Well, the most amazing LESBIAN proposal, at least.

by Anonymousreply 2004/08/2013

Perry is a talented pop-rock producer. She's accomplished in her own right so I wouldn't normally think gold-digger right off, but that t-shirt proposal sounds more desperate than cute. As the creator of The Talk, Sara is loaded. I do kinda doubt that a shared interest in John Waite music is the primary attraction.

by Anonymousreply 2104/08/2013

I never realized short Perry and Gilbert are. In this picture they look almost like children standing next to Kat Von D and that other guy.

Gilbert looks great compared the other chicks in that photo, meaning she looks human.

R10 Yes, her previous S.O. was Ali Adler, co-creator of "The New Normal."

If lesbians had the libidos of gay men, they would've been eating each other out in the park.

At least in r22's photo, Linda Perry has dead eyes.

by Anonymousreply 2904/08/2013

The fact that they have a breakup song says a lot.

by Anonymousreply 3004/08/2013

I'm no fan of children, but I thought Sara just had children with her wife. Didn't they do one of those deals where one partner has one Bio child, then other partner has the other Bio child, which is designed to cement the relationship to each other and to the children?

Wait, she's marrying Steven Tyler?

by Anonymousreply 3304/09/2013

I think she looks more like Kieth Richards than Steven Tyler.

I love Sara Gilbert, but Linda Perry looks a little scary. I do like her as a music producer, though.

And I said heeeeeeeeeeeeeeey, heeeeeeeeeeeeeeey, heeeeeeeeeeey, what's going on?

What a poet laureate Linda Perry is....

Did the tshirt a symbolize something? I don't get it. It seems awkward to have to haul out, unfold, then somehow display a bunch of tshirt a on a park bench.

by Anonymousreply 3904/09/2013

I think that Sara Gilbert is pretty. She has nice skin and I love her hair. She is a natural beauty.

by Anonymousreply 4004/09/2013

So is Linda on drugs or did she spend the first 45 years of her life sharecropping?

by Anonymousreply 4104/09/2013

I don't understand the multiple t-shirt thing. I mean, after wearing the first two t shirts "WILL" and "YOU"... I would assume that Sara was just sitting there knowing full well that it was a marriage proposal and then had to sit there while her girl friend put on three other t-shirts to get through the rest of the question: "MARRY" "ME" and "?"

Frankly, I have always found waiting for someone to get dressed to be rather tedious.

Considering both Sara and Linda are millionaires several times over, I rank this proposal as lame.

by Anonymousreply 4204/09/2013

Tee shirts? What? No trucker hats?

I rather take Linda over Sara. At least Linda has talent.

Still yikes to both.

That said, I hate it when people share their proposals. They all think it's so magical and some of us are just cringing on the inside.

I think I get it. Next to Perry, Sarah is gorgeous!

Sara Gilbert has nice eyes and she's looking good. You creeps are rough

by Anonymousreply 6204/11/2013

What's going on here? Sara can do a lot better- she really is pretty cute. Linda Perry is ugly! Looks like a dirty, unkempt drug addict with limited personality. I will never forget years ago, seeing Perry at the Viper Room..she had a posse of younger lesbians who fawned over her sitting in a booth. I walked by her, and she said (flirted) hey - get me a beer will you? (I did-I was playing a fawning lesbian, too) but she came off as a user. She should have bought ME a beer. Gina Gershon was there as well. WEHT?..

Linda looks rough as hell. And Sara is a huge step down from Linda's ex, Clementine Ford (Cybill Shepherd's lookalike daughter).

A step down? More like a leap down!

by Anonymousreply 6604/11/2013

FYI - Linda Perry is one of the richest, most well connected lesbians in all of LA. And super respected in the music industry. So, gay, rich$$$ and lots of musician fantasy, front row concert tickets to every event, back stage passes, etc etc etc. Lots of perks to dating her. Plus - Gilbert doesn't have to worry about dating below her $$ station.

by Anonymousreply 6904/11/2013

Thanks Linda at r69. I don't think people were worried about her social station as much as her shitty facial tats.

All that money and she can't spend a little on grooming products?

Hope Linda manages to bathe sometime before the wedding.

Linda's talent is average. And that's a compliment.

by Anonymousreply 7304/12/2013

And when these two toads break up over something tedious the viewers of The Talk will have to endure every excruciating detail, because while Gilbert may be gay she is still a FRAU who thinks she's fascinating.

When will women shut the fuck up about their private little moments? Why do fraus, straight or gay, think the world cares about the details of their boring lives?

And why does someone with a speech impediment be on a talk show--that seems like the ultimate narcissism.

There are cute lesbian couples out there for us all to admire--Ellen and Portia, Rachel and her zoftig--but these old toads are a drippy nightmare of scare-pussy.

by Anonymousreply 7604/12/2013

You're kidding right R76? You're complaining about over sharing yet Ellen and Portia are just as bad.

That said, they have talk shows whose core audiences are "fraus" who eat this shit up.

[quote]You missed lesbian drama, [R31]. Big fight, big dramatic breakup detailed on The Talk everyday. All the other cohosts had to endure it since she is the creator. Don't know if she still has custody of those kids.

For those of us who missed it, would you care to share some of the juicy details?

Perry's got that ugly Sam Ronson look going on.

Those two now look exactly alike. They're scary.

Is T-shirt thing the lesbian version of the "you HAVE to marry NOW" schtick done by straight males at sports events? When those guys publicly propose on the jumbo tron.

I'm pretty sure if Gilbert wants backstage passes and free concert tix, she doesn't need to marry someone to get them.

Linda seems so annoying and immature in the few interviews I've seen of her. She really needs to grow up.

Do not get the appeal for Linda Perry at all. I don't think Sara is good looking, but I could see how someone would find her cute.

After watching VH1's Behind The Music, I have new found respect for Perry.

She has some new show that I clicked past today. She looks like she hasn't bathed in a couple of years.

Married only a year and they already have baby "Rhodes," now two weeks old.


Did previously childless Linda know what she was getting into, hitching up with Sara?
