Sara Gilbert, former host of The Talk and star of The Conners, filed court documents Friday to legally separate from his five-year-old wife Linda Perry. And, the 44-year-old actress and producer was seen for the first time this weekend without her wedding ring.
Gilbert wore a gray sweater with jeans and black boots, but did his best to avoid the cameras with a pair of sunglasses and a camouflage bucket.

Gilbert and Perry – a singer / songwriter who is best known for facing the 1990s rock group 4 Non Blondes – made the connection in May 2014. And, a year later, they welcomed their son Rhodes Emilio Gilbert Perry . Gilbert also has a 15 year old son named Levi and a 12 year old daughter named Sawyer whom she shares with her ex-partner, television producer Allison Adler.
When Perry married Gilbert, she told Entertainment Tonight that she had made major changes in her life before meeting the Roseanne actress. She explained that she had smoked cigarettes since she was 15, and that one day she was half-smoked, and decided it was time to make some changes.
Perry says that she has quit smoking, started eating better, and started to focus on herself. This led her to reassess what she deserved in life, and it was then that her yoga teacher introduced her to Gilbert. After spending a few months as friends, Perry began to develop romantic feelings.
“I say to myself,” She’s so sexy. She is so mysterious and there is something. She is so smart. “And that was it. Like, that moment when I said she was so smart, she was so sexy, like she wasn’t in my league at all. Perry.
The singer explained that when she knew that Gilbert was out of her league, that’s when she decided to pursue her. Perry said she knew there was no one else, and Gilbert was her penguin, the person she was supposed to be with.
“This is my person, this one,” said Perry. “Because I’m going to make her my love.”
Perry said she loved spending time with Gilbert, and he never felt like they were trying. Instead, they were just themselves and who they were.
Unfortunately, something went wrong, and Gilbert and Perry separated earlier this year. Gilbert listed the separation date as August 13 and cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split. She also asked the court not to award spousal support to herself or to Perry.
Earlier this year, Sara Gilbert left The Talk to spend more time with her family because her life was unbalanced. However, she still plays on The Conners, which airs Tuesday night on ABC.
