by Stephanie Opella, posted Dec 6th 2011 6:30PM
Sara Gilbert welcomed her sister, former 'Little House on the Prairie' star Melissa Gilbert, to 'The Talk' on Tuesday. It was a sweet reunion and everything was going well until Sharon Osbourne took control of the conversation and steered it toward Sara's sexuality.

"When did you first realize that your beautiful sister loved vajayjay?" she asked. Sara slumped back in her chair and covered her face in embarrassment as Melissa told a few stories about Sara's coming out process. When they were teenagers, Melissa suspected Sara was gay, and took her sister out to dinner to remind her that she could tell her anything. But Sara wasn't ready yet, and told her big sister she wasn't gay.

Sara Gilbert and Kris Jenner Tear Up in 'Talk' About Marriage (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Sep 30th 2011 1:50PM
'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS) got emotional during a conversation about the virtues of marriage. Guest host Kris Jenner set the tone for the discussion when she brought up her late ex-husband Robert Kardashian, and said she felt blessed to have been able to find her second husband, Bruce Jenner.

"I was married to Robert for 13 years and I've been married to Bruce for 20, so I feel like the most blessed woman in the world," Jenner said. "I just feel so lucky," she continued, tearing up.

Then Sara Gilbert, who has been getting over a break-up with her long-time partner, shared her feelings. "I feel like I don't know if marriage is all its cracked up to, and I've never been married, but I was in a long relationship ... and it's emotional for me because we're not together, but I wouldn't trade that time. But then you see people in their 70s and you go, 'how do they make it last?' and I would like to be able to do that again," she said, fighting through tears.

Thomas Gibson Has Been Tweeting Pictures of His 'Criminal Minds' Co-Stars' Feet (VIDEO)

'Criminal Minds' star Thomas Gibson has working on some interesting projects lately. He guest-starred on the 'Two and a Half Men' premiere in a sort-of-but-not-really 'Dharma & Greg' reunion, and in his spare time, he's been tweeting pictures of his co-stars' feet.

Gibson tried to tell the ladies of 'The Talk' (weekdays, 7AM on CBS) that doesn't have a foot fetish, but they weren't really buying it. "Everybody thinks I do, but I swear I don't, although I might be developing one now," he pleaded.

One of the foot pictures he tweeted belonged to a 'Criminal Minds' cadaver, which grossed out Sara Gilbert. Gibson assured her that it wasn't actually the foot of dead man, a development that makes him only slightly less weird.

Nelsan Ellis Modeled His 'True Blood' Lafayette Character After His Mother (VIDEO)

by Nick Zaino, posted Aug 8th 2011 5:30PM
Nelsan Ellis of 'True Blood' on 'The Talk'Nelsan Ellis said Monday on 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS) that people sometimes think he is his 'True Blood' character, Lafayette Reynolds. There are some big differences, including the fact that Lafayette is gay and Ellis is straight. But Ellis shared that there is a little of the Ellis family tree represented in Lafayette.

Sara Gilbert asked if people sometimes mistook Ellis for his character. "They do," he said, smiling. "Gay is just one part of Lafayette. People think that I'm everything that encompasses Lafayette, which is a lot. I'm too boring as Nelsan." His mother, who recently passed away, was apparently not boring at all. She never saw the show, but Ellis said she and Lafayette had a lot in common.

Royal Pins? Sharon Osbourne Fumbles Interview With Julie Benz (VIDEO)

Julie Benz of 'Royal Pains' on 'The Talk'Sharon Osbourne has had her share of flubs on 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS), and she continued her streak with guest Julie Benz. The 'Dexter' and 'No Ordinary Family' alum was on the show to talk about her latest TV role on 'Royal Pains.' Osbourne apparently misread her cue cards.

"Can you tell us about the character you play in 'Royal Pins?'" asked Osbourne. She was quickly corrected by her fellow panel members, and simply asked again, "What is the character?" Benz laughed it off. "For those of you who watch the show, I play the mom to Libby, and I'm a lesbian alpaca farmer," she said.

'Grey's Anatomy' - 'Suicide is Painless' Recap

Owen pre-Seattle Grace
(S06E18) We finally find out more about Owen's past this week on 'Grey's Anatomy.' The big story revolved around Owen and his time in the army. He's forever filled with guilt that he could have saved his friend's life if the two just held on for an extra few minutes. The biggest problem is that Owen can't put in his head the fact that his squad leader accepted that he was going to die and was at peace. Owen was afraid and still is today, causing him to have trouble sleeping at night. If he could open up to Christina or his therapist, then he might be able to be at peace with the situation.

I wish the show had a bit more of a budget for set design because I didn't believe one minute of the scene that was supposed to be the desert. The explosion was really cheesy looking, and I couldn't believe that Owen was the lone survivor.

10 Former TV Child Stars Who Aren't Crackheads

by Patricia Chui, posted Sep 3rd 2009 3:45PM
Jason Bateman in Extract'Extract,' the new Mike Judge comedy opening in theaters this weekend, stars Jason Bateman as a bored factory manager. Those of us who grew up on '80s TV are thrilled that former child star Bateman's become such a success as an adult -- especially since we still think of him as Ricky Schroder's rambunctious best friend on 'Silver Spoons.' (Did anyone else watch 'It's Your Move' religiously? Just us?)

It's quite a feat for Bateman to have come this far, as the list of former child stars is littered with tales of drug abuse, DUIs, anorexia, obscurity and death. And then there are those who pop up in the news for doing random things, such as Soleil Moon Frye resurrecting Punky Brewster to celebrate her massive Twitter following.

But why dwell on the negative and the bizarre? Here's a list of 10 formerly famous tykes who bucked the odds and emerged from childhood TV stardom -- often after long periods in which they took time off or struggled to find work -- and became famous adults in their own right. We couldn't be more proud.

TV Squad Ten: TV's biggest tramps

by Kona Gallagher, posted Mar 16th 2009 2:30PM
kate austen lostYou've gotta admit: tramps are fun. Their boozy, often promiscuous antics are the life of any party. Whether you're cheering them on or witnessing their antics with horror, tramps make any situation interesting. The same goes for TV shows. From Blanche DuBois to, well, most of The Real World cast members after season 3 or so, the television landscape has been filled with entertainingly trampy characters.

They may steal your husband, dance on a bar, or just generally leave a path of destruction in their wake. Whatever it is, it's sure to be memorable. For this reason, TV tramps are not to be looked down upon; they are to be revered. So consider this list a tribute: a tribute to TV's biggest tramps. May they never reexamine the path their life has taken.

Christine Baranski cast as mommy on Big Bang Theory

by Allison Waldman, posted Jan 15th 2009 7:29PM
BaranskiOn CBS's The Big Bang Theory, we've met Sheldon's mother. Emmy-winner Laurie Metcalf appeared in season one as a super-religious Texas mama who knows better than anyone how to get to Dr. Sheldon Cooper. Now, Leonard's mother is going to be introduced, and she's equally as accomplished as Ms. Metcalf.

Tony, Emmy and SAG award winning actress Christine Baranski will be Leonard's mom, Dr. Beverly Hofstadter. That's right, she's a brainiac.

Her specialty is research on the human brain, and according to Bill Prady, Big Bang's executive producer, "There's the possibility that Leonard is the least successful in his family, that his parents always pushed him toward academic success." Sounds like a funny set up to me.

Theory has it that Sara Gilbert is a good fit for Big Bang

by Jason Hughes, posted Aug 9th 2008 12:01PM
Johnny Galecki & Sara GilbertWhen Johnny Galecki joined the cast of Roseanne to be the love interest for the dour Darlene (Sara Gilbert), I thought they had a wonderful chemistry together. In fact, it was his turn on that show that lead to me ever even tuning into his new hit show The Big Bang Theory. Well, that and the fact that it was populated with people who reminded me more of myself and many of my college friends than I should probably admit.

It was quite a treat when Gilbert appeared in three episodes throughout the last season as acerbic Leslie Winkle, intellectual equal to Galecki's Leonard, and just as socially out there. The chemistry between the two was immediate, and I found the dominance she established in their relationship to be a blast. The fact that this nerdy chick was more alpha male than any of the four male leads in the series is brilliant. So Sara Gilbert joining the cast of The Big Bang Theory as a series regular is a great move for the show.

Comedy news: Starz picks up scripted series, Gilbert joins Big Bang Theory

by Adam Finley, posted Sep 4th 2007 2:03PM

sara gilbertStarz Entertainment is getting into the scripted sitcom biz with two new comedy series slated to kick off in January.

The first, Hollywood Residential, focuses on the problems facing a home-makeover show geared toward celebrities. The other new series, Head Case, is about a psychotherapist whose clients are all big Hollywood celebs.

The "celebrity" angle of both shows is not a coincidence: Mike Ruggiero, Starz VP of programming, says it's a way of getting viewers used to seeing scripted shows on the channel by featuring some of the celebrities also seen in the movies that originally made up Starz's programming. I don't quite understand that logic, since HBO seemed to do just fine when it started airing original programs without any big names attached.

ER: Scoop and Run

by Richard Keller, posted Nov 24th 2006 8:30AM

Abby Lockhart(S13E09) I'm with my brother Joel about new programming during Thanksgiving. Out of all the holidays we celebrate Thanksgiving should be the one that never has new episodes, even if it falls in the heart of the November sweeps. Why? Well, after ingesting so much sleep-inducing food it's hard to concentrate. If anything, Thanksgiving evenings should be reserved for three-hour long historical-period movies that feature plenty of silent scenes. You know, so you can get some sleep.

Okay, whining over, let's discuss this week's 'ER Event'.
