Sara Gilbert is leaving The Talk.
Gilbert, who has been with the show since the beginning, also executive produces the show announced during the Tuesday, April 9 episode that she plans on leaving The Talk at the end of the season, but is open to returning as a guest to hang out with current hosts, Sharon Osbourne, Sheryl Underwood, Eve, and Carrie Ann Inaba.
"This is hard to do and something...Something that I have been struggling with for a while...but I've decided it's time for me to leave the show at the end of the season," a teary Gilbert said. "I obviously love it here, and like I said this was extremely difficult."
The reason? Gilbert's producing and acting duties on The Conners, the Roseanne spin-off, and other projects currently in development, as well as carving more family time with her 3 kids.
"If I'm being honest about it, I think my life was slightly out of balance and I wasn't able to spend as much time with my three kids as I'd like or time for myself," she said about the last few months. "As I've continued on, I've started to develop more things to produce and I'm having opportunities to act, I'm just feeling like I don't know how I'm going to do it all."
