The Talk co-host Sharon Osbourne
had an interesting way of asking Melissa Gilbert how she learned that
her sister Sara Gilbert is gay.
Melissa Gilbert, who is best known for
playing Laura Ingalls Wilder on the long-running NBC drama Little
House on the Prairie, appeared on the show's Tuesday episode.
“On the subject of love and
relationships. When did you first realize that your beautiful sister
loved vajayjay?” Osbourne asked as the co-hosts gathered around the
show's kitchen table.
The question drew applause from the
audience and laughter from the co-hosts, especially Sara Gilbert who
appeared a bit embarrassed.
“You know what, I'll put it to you
this way. … I took her to dinner when she was in her teens and I
sat her down and I gave her this long speech about how much I love
you and it doesn't matter and you're my darling and blah, blah, blah
and you can tell me anything. And she looked and me and she said,
'I'm not gay.' And I was like, 'OK, whatever.'”
Melissa Gilbert added that she always
kind of knew. (The video is embedded in the right panel of this
