The Talk's Sara Gilbert: Engaged to Linda Perry!

Sara Gilbert is engaged to marry her girlfriend of two years, Linda Perry!

The 38-year-old talk show host and the 47-year-old songwriter announced their engagement on Monday (April 8) during an episode of The Talk.

“We go to a park, and we have food and we’re eating it, it’s really sweet and there’s this guy sitting playing guitar, like a street musician, and he starts playing this song that we love… I’m like, ‘Oh, that’s so weird, this is so magical and amazing,’” Sara said about how Linda proposed.

“So that ends and she’s like, ‘Oh, I’m gonna ask him to play this other song,’ but this other song is really obscure and this guy wouldn’t know it, but magically he knows it… And suddenly the people picnicking next to us pull out string instruments from under the blanket and walk over and they start playing Love Song (by The Cure),” Sara added. “Then she goes to her backpack and she pulls out some T-shirts and the first T-shirt says, ‘Will,’ and then she puts on another T-Shirt that says, ‘You,’ ‘Marry,’ ‘Me’ and the last one is a question mark. And then she goes to her backpack and gets a ring.”

“So then she says, ‘Ok, turn around,’ and I turn around and our mums are there and a couple friends… So I think that’s it and it’s the most amazing proposal ever and then… this guy walks up and she’s like, ‘This is John Waite,’ and he starts playing ‘Missing You,’” Sara said.

Congratulations to the happy couple!

  • Sabine

    @Voldemort: YOU are disgusting. I pity you.

  • miss infamous

    I didnt even know they were together lol congrats to them

  • sillyme

    Good for them, I guess. It’s just not exciting as seeing a straight couple getting engaged. I mean, no one is going to care what Sara wears or the wedding pictures. Even with the kids, the media and public don’t obsess over the kids of gay celebs the way they do straight celebs.

  • miss infamous

    damn Linda sounds more romantic than most men LOL (kidding…not really)

  • Lara

    @miss infamous: Me neither. But pretty cool. :-D

  • Sabine

    @Alan: Yes, epic proposal indeed. And how awesome is it that these two are together??? And now even engaged. Well, this just made my day. *happy*

    I love Sara Gilbert on The Big Bang Theory, she plays this fellow doctor who’s always calling Sheldon “dumbass”; she’s hilarious

  • Peaches

    It’s such a sweet proposal story =)

  • dumbnhung

    That’s awesome. Suck it straights!

  • truth

    Hellbound. God hates homosexuals. They chose Satan as their father and now seek after the lusts of their flesh. Christ said to flee sin. Christ said go now and sin no more or be afflicted with terrible things. “The foolish shall not stand in thy sight for thou HATEST all workers of iniquity.”

  • see

    that’s one psycho-extreme proposal, like crazies do, they madly woo the one they want and after the relaionship is firmly established the jealousy kicks in and the violence kicks in big time, often from a very non-violent beginning to the relationship, it totally changes so you are controlled by this former mad wooing person,who is now your worst nightmare
    not kidding
    this is how it plays out

  • hotbitch


    LOL What a moron. If you’re still living your life based on a story book written by men that believed the earth was flat well………congratulations. You Jesus freaks are hilarious. Sooooo judgmental in all your “holiness”.

    Anyway, that was a beautiful proposal. What a sweet LOVE story. I couldn’t care less what gender they are.

  • Ginger

    WHAT!??!?!? John Waite was there?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? I should have been there to see him sing that song too!!

    When you religious people pass away you will just be in an eternal sleep like the rest of us, no god, go heaven. The bible is a nice book though, on par with Lord of the rings.

    To Pitch, like most people do. Sex isn’t just penetration, you know. Your lady must be unsatisfied.

  • Babsi

    God help them. I will pray for them both.

  • God is GAY!!!!

    Congragulation’s on the engagement!!! All the bible humpers need to get a life. God isn’t real people!! You are merely puppets having someone else pulling your strings. You should be anal raped with a crucifix. See if you phony GOD will help then. Hail the universe!!!
