Who did Sara Gilbert date when she first came out?

She talks about dating a "woman in the public eye" who was 18 years her senior, while she was still on Roseanne and supposedly courting Jonny Galecki. Who?

No I don't think so R1. In the early 90s, after becoming a two time Oscar winning movie star Jodie was screwing any bi-curious actresses and models who crossed her path. Why would she bother with Sara?

In the Sara Gilbert thread we discusses that the Gogo's Gina Schock was likely the woman she was dating.

Who cares? Do we have a Sara Gilbert troll on our hands?

by Anonymousreply 309/13/2013

so far by age and time period, we have it narrowed down to Gina Schock, Ellen Degeneres and Sandra Bernhard. Based on Sara's personality, I think Gina would be more her type. Any other 18 year older-than Sara famous or semi-famous lesbians in the mid 90s?

Gina Schock is the only one listed who's 18 years older than Sara. Sandra Bernhard is 20 years older. Jodie Foster is 12 years older.

Alright then it's Gina.

Could still be Ellen, she's only 17 years older today but could be 18 years older later.

At the time of her coming out she was dating TV producer Alison Adler for 9 years already and they had two children ,a son (2004,by Adler) and a daughter(2007,by Gilbert).however,they split in 2011.

Did Gina date Sara after Jodie?

by Anonymousreply 1009/13/2013


by Anonymousreply 1109/13/2013

how did they even meet. schock is a closet case and gilbert was what? 20? how does schock come on to a kid almost 20 years younger. she could't just have gone to a gay bar or something like that. it's hard to date as a general closet lesbian but a celebrity? don't get it. especially without internet, cell phones,..

did she say how long they dated for?

by Anonymousreply 1209/13/2013

R12, Rosie talked to Andy Cohen about the 90s lesbian clique she ran with. It was Rosie, Ellen, KD Lang, Melissa Etheridge, and others plus Sara Gilbert. Rosie specifically mentioned that she was very protective of Sara and was like "hey you're just a kid, you shouldn't be here." So if Sara hung out with Ellen's clique, then it's an easy connection from there. Assuming Gina wasn't part of the clique herself, she was in a band with Ellen's brother, so Sara meeting Gina wouldn't be a stretch.

R13 I always heard Gina hung out with Jodie's crowed and her own, never with Ellen and the rest. Ellen's brother has years of no longer being in her band by this timeline.

Jodie never hung out with Rosie, Ellen or Melissa but she should have going by your way of logic.

Lesbians in the entertainment industry never date women who work in other fields. They are very insular, cliquey, and image obsessed.

Counter that with gay men, who frequently date outside the industry, in fact, often preferring it.

Many women seem to get stuck in a perpetual adolescence, with backstabbing, snobbery, and rejection as part of their social habituation.

by Anonymousreply 3309/13/2013

R22 just because they met doesn't mean anything. She knows Sandra, Melissa, Rosie and Ellen. The point in r20 is that it's a jump to say just because Ellen's brother was in her band years before it doesn't automatically makes it her. It could very well be but that's a pretty thin as evidence.

I have a hard time believing Gina, who is pretty closeted, being ok with Sara saying this if its her.

From the clip, it looks like Sara is horrified at being in that relationship.

by Anonymousreply 6509/13/2013

All I'm saying is that over the past 15 to 18 years I've seen the Schock-Gilbert rumor over and over again across a wide variety of forums. I'm asking why anyone is so incredulous over the possible coupling. It's a whole lot more logical than Gilbert-McGillis or Gilbert-Bernhard.

by Anonymousreply 6609/13/2013

I do not believe you are r66. You are stating final fact even with counters or other possibles like Sandra B. Then you claim evidence but don't show it. Is it possible? Of course, but you started out with stomping your feet and then throwing these questionable posts as a way to side step questions.

Is it possible? Absolutely. Could very well be Sure! But please don't get mad when your own 'hard to grasps' quote returns or when you get asked for evidense. Nothing worse in a gossip forum then someone who takes all posts at face value.

Now, I've said my piece and will go. I can take one fug lesbian but not two. This is a dead unresolvable end anyways. Two fucked up in the head people have to at least be sexy enough to look at. End

by Anonymousreply 6709/13/2013

What the hell are you talking about, R67? Your post makes no sense whatsoever. (By the way, Sandra B.'s and Gilbert's age difference doesn't equal 18, so it's not a very good "counter.")

Martina was in the 90s lesbian clique also,yes? I remember she was fucking anything with a cunt back then.

by Anonymousreply 6909/14/2013

R68 are you slow? R67's post made sense but you don't seem to want to understand. Honestly, you do come off as the emotional one who really wants this to be true.

Regarding the topic, you cannot be so literal with the 18 years. It could be accurate or it could be ball park figure. You cannot possibly take it as purely fact.

There are other things to consider like the reported denial from Gina herself and others. Why dont you take that into account? Another consideration is that most fans say they don't know. I call bullshit on the comment you made of how it's common knowledge and widely reported. You are full of it there. You painted yourself into a corner with those comments.

Think about this, the relationship of Gina and Jodie Foster isn't argued at all. I have not seen any fan of the group, or casual observers of them, ever dispute it. Now THAT rumor is known and wide spread for years and years. This rumor isn't treated the same way. That should tell you a great deal, don't you think? No one knows for sure. Do you see how different the Jodie rumor is from the Sara one? Undesputed vs ??? (Maybe?)

You are passionate about this and you could be correct in your belief but it's not above question. You shouldn't hang your hat on the old "their lesbians so they can't be friends!" line. If you say you have seen it in multiple forums, show it because like the Queen above, I've only ever seen one and the rest in private forums do not believe its her.

Just my 2 cens.

by Anonymousreply 7009/14/2013

Hey, that's a good guess r69. I can see that old girl go after her. Sara said she was a public figure and Martina would fit the bill since she was part of that clique.

R70, don't misquote me. I didn't say it was common knowledge. I said it's been quoted on a number of forums over the years.

by Anonymousreply 7309/14/2013

It's "hard to grasp" because you wouldn't expect someone to use the term "in the public eye" to describe a has-been from The Gogo's. The average person doesn't even know who Gina Schock is? She's not exactly a household name. It would be presumptuous to say the general public was 'that' aware of her.

"In the public eye" doesn't even sound like someone in the entertainment industry. More like a journalist or politician. Or, as R69 suggests, a famous athlete.

Are you really shocked R81? It's usually the case when someone is prejudiced against one group of people, it's highly likely they have plenty of other prejudices.

Back on topic, R75, that's the first person I thought of, but I discounted her because Sara said she was in the public eye and I took it to mean she was in the public eye then, not now.

But yeah Cynthia Mort would fit the age difference and she began working on Roseanne in 1994.

They're apparently still on good terms though. Here's a pic of them during one of Sara's pregnancies.

how many lesbian celebs are there who are currently between the ages of 55-57? I say this because you have to give some room for the months of the year. They could have been 18 years older while dating Sara but after breaking up had a birthday or something.

Remember, it could be someone who was either out or closeted back then.

Just based on personalities I can't see Martina with Sara. Martina looks pretty, more feminine types.
