Sara Gilbert, co-host of CBS' The Talk, will discuss her split from Glee writer Allison Adler on Friday's edition of the daytime chat show.

The women had been together 10 years and share custody of their 2 children: six-year-old son Levi and four-year-old daughter Sawyer.

Entertainment Weekly quotes from an early transcript of today's show.

“I've never been married, but I was in a long relationship,” says the 36-year-old Gilbert. “It's emotional for me, because we're not together. I wouldn't trade that time … it's such a special time in my life. … But then you see people in their 70s and you wonder … how do they do it? How do they make it last? And I would like to think that I can.”

Gilbert is best known for her portrayal of Darlene Conner-Healy on the ABC sitcom Roseanne, which starred comedian Roseanne Barr as her mother. Adler, 44, joined Glee after writing stints at the NBC sitcom Chuck and ABC's quickly canceled science fiction drama No Ordinary Family.
