Okay, that title was a little misleading. Johnny Galecki can’t make anyone gay. (Only Satan can do that.) But Sara Gilbert, who co-starred with Johnny for years on “Roseanne,” says it was while kissing him that she figured out she liked ladybits more than manbits.
“I thought he was super cute and I had a total crush on him,” Gilbert, now a co-host on “The Talk,” said yesterday on the show. “And we started dating and he would come over and we would, like, make out, and then I would start to get depressed.”
Okay, two things. First, since “The Talk” has been making news all week with this whole “secrets revealed” thing (giving us the MY EYES! MY EYES! visual of Sharon Osbourne riding Jay Leno‘s chin), it should really just change its name to “The Secret” and have a rotating cavalcade of stars dishing scandalous things about themselves. Like a self-confessional “Love Boat.”
And second, Johnny Galecki is a goddamn prince.
When Sara finally told him what was going on in her head, he not only supported her emotionally, he kept her secret for years until she was ready to go public with it herself (she did that in 2010). And if you watch “The Big Bang Theory,” you know they’ve stayed close, because she’s been on a slew of episodes.
That’s lovely and all, but most famous hetero dudes probably still wouldn’t want a girl going on national television and basically saying, “Having his tongue in my mouth made me realize I’m a lesbian.”
But when Sara asked if she could tell the story, he responded, “Of course. I love you and I think it’s really important and I’m so proud of you … If you want, I will be there and I will hold your hand.”
Next time you wonder why Penny has such a thing for Leonard Hofstadter, just remember that.
