Roseanne star Sara Gilbert has spoken out about her sexuality for the first time, confirming that she is a lesbian.
Gilbert, who has a son and daughter with her female partner Allison Adler, made the disclosure during a media event for her new show daytime chat show The Talk.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Gilbert, 35, was asked if she was comfortable being "out" on the show.
"This is a whole new world for me. I'm not an expert on this, or I don't analyse these things. I'm just sort of living my life," Gilbert replied.
"I don't think (being out) will be a problem... I don't ever really think of things as being out or in... I just think I am who I am, and when topics come up that are appropriate, I'll talk about them and share when it seems right."
Gilbert, who played Darlene in the hit TV series Rosanne, will host the talk show about parenting with Sharon Osbourne and other celebrity mothers.http://news.ninemsn.com.au/entertainment/7938128/rosanne-star-comes-out-as-lesbian

I cannot imagine watching the show she is going to host. Susan Boyle's cash crisis12:00 AEST Sun Aug 1 2010

Pop star Susan Boyle is suffering a cash crisis, after her management restricted her ability to withdraw her earnings, according to a report in the UK's News of the World.
Despite rocketing to fame on Britainís Got Talent and making a number one album, the singer has complained to relatives that she is required to live off an allowance of $A520 a week."
This puts Boyle in the company of some of Britain's lowest paid workers, including hospital cleaners.
According to the news report, she is not allowed to have a credit card, her management have barred her from withdrawing extra cash from the bank, she is forced to buy cheap clothes from supermarket Tesco and she has to travel by bus.
The singer's brother, Gerry Boyle, told the News of the World: "When Susan realised she can't just walk into a bank and take out her own money she had a fit because she thought she was down to her last few quid.
"Her millions are ring-fenced but Susan has no concept of money. She was extremely distressed. She lives in fear of losing everything and returning to her old life before she made it big."
She has a new house, but according to her brother, she does not have enough money to furnish it.
Despite selling 8.5 million copies of her debut album, Boyle's allowance is equivalent to an annual salary of $A27,000.
According to Gerry Boyle, "Susan doesn't look as if she's a successful international chart star. She's lonely and downtrodden. And she's got this paranoia that she's going to go back to square one, back to where she was before Britain's Got Talent."http://news.ninemsn.com.au/entertainment/7938137/susan-boyles-cash-crisis
