Sara Gilbert wasn't hiding her new relationship with Linda Perry, she just wasn't quite ready to tell the world.
Wednesday on The Talk, Gilbert's CBS talk show, she admitted that she and Perry were dating, but that they weren't expecting to take their relationship public so soon.
"The other day I was just out, and the paparazzi were there," Gilbert told her audience.
After photos of the two women, hand-in-hand outside a Los Angeles grocery store, surfaced, the attention was a surprise to the former Roseanne star.
"All these articles are out that I'm in a new relationship," Gilbert said. "I go online, and it's on CNN... it's weird.
Of course, having a new relationship splashed all over the news can't be easy--Gilbert told audience members that she only wishes she had been able to break the news when she was comfortable doing so.
"I do want to share with you," she said, "but I want to do it on my terms, in full hair and makeup,"
