Sara Gilbert Bids an Emotional Farewell to 'The Talk'
Lead: In an emotional preview posted on Instagram from her last episode which was pre-recorded and will air on August 2nd, Sara Gilbert officially bids farewell to The CBS’ talk show “The Talk,” and her co-hosts for years.
The proud mom of three kids, Sara Gilbert who created, and hosted the CBS talk show since 2010 has decided to move on from the show.
In April, Gilbert initially made her proposed departure known. She noted that she perceived her “life was slightly out of balance.”
Apart from “The Talk,” she features, and executive produces “The Connors,” the ABC sitcom and has a continuous character on Netflix’s “Atypical.” Furthermore, Gilbert began her production company “sara+tom” in May.
Gilbert, who is the proud mother of three children, affirmed that she hadn’t even created her four-year-old boy's baby book.
The talk-show host had beautiful parting words for her co-hosts: Sharon Osbourne, Sheryl Underwood, Carrie Ann Inaba, and Eve.

However, for Sharon Osbourne whom she brought on board to the show and is now the only standing original host, she made a touching remark:
“I wanted Sharon to be on this panel, and I fought for her to be here, and she wanted to do it, and I was so grateful...We’ve been there with each other and for each other through so many moments… I love you, and I know this is not a goodbye and that we’re going to be in each other’s lives. I’ll make sure of that.”
