When the topic of actress Jane Lynch's impending divorce from her wife came up on CBS' The Talk, all eyes turned to openly gay Sara Gilbert.

Lynch, who is best know for playing Coach Sue Sylvester on the Fox musical-comedy Glee, announced Monday that she is splitting from her wife of three years, Dr. Lara Embry.

The women married in a private ceremony in Sunderland, Massachusetts in 2010, a year after they had met at a fundraiser held in Embry's honor in San Francisco. Among those in the wedding party was Embry's daughter, Haden. In a commencement speech given last year, Lynch described Haden as a kid designed for her. “She's witty, wise beyond her years, she has a huge heart, and such patience with the frailties of human nature,” she said.

“Do you think gay couples feel more pressure to stay together?” asked Julie Chen, who then, turning to Gilbert, added, “Gay Sara?”

“Speaking on behalf of all gays,” Gilbert joked. “Even though there shouldn't be more pressure on gay couples, I think there could be, because there's this fight for marriage equality right now. … There's this feeling like, 'Oh, we're representing this bigger cause.'” (The video is embedded on this page.
