Sara Gilbert first stepped out publicly on Saturday after her former The Talk co-host Sharon Osbourne and CBS ‘split up’ on Friday, amid a racial investigation.

The 46-year-old former presenter and executive producer of the daytime talk show had lunch with ex-wife Linda Perry and their son Rhodes in LA, and turned out to be friendly exes despite the storm brewing in her old workplace.

Gilbert has not publicly spoken out about the controversy that followed with Osbourne, who has now left the show after defending her boyfriend Piers Morgan and his comments about Meghan Markle. The show is still on hiatus.

The former child star kept it casual in ripped jeans and a black long-sleeved shirt over a T-shirt.

She wore comfortable trainers on her feet and a gray face mask while wearing what looked like a drinking cup for her four-year-old son.

Perry rocked Rhodes on a walk in gray sweatpants and a brown T-shirt with a stylish brown hat and matching face mask.

Although Gilbert legally filed for divorce from Perry on December 27 after a five-year marriage, they have joint legal and physical custody of their son.

Perry spoke to Us weekly about their split that says, ‘It’s life, man. Life happens and you witness it. You know, this is a moment in life and people will witness it and … I’ve had an incredible journey and I’m still on an incredible journey. ‘

Despite there seems to be little to no bad blood between the pair, the same cannot be said of Gilbert’s once-loved talk show.

She’s remained a mom over the troubles that have arisen with Osbourne in recent weeks, after her defense of Morgan led to an emotional back-and-forth between she and co-host Sheryl Underwood.

Sharon was accused of being ‘racist’ after saying Piers was entitled to his opinion. “I support him for his freedom of speech, and he’s my friend,” she said on the show.

Educate me. Tell me if you’ve heard him say racist things, ”Osbourne shot back at one point, to which Underwood replied that his statements were an“ implication ”that bothered her as a black woman.

Sharon then apologized on Twitter, writing, ‘I’m really sorry. I panicked, felt blinded, got defensive, and left my fear and horror of being accused of being racially taken over. ‘

The 11-year-old host claimed she was left out of the show’s usual scheduling meeting prior to airing where they discuss what topics will be discussed.

Calling it a deliberate ploy by the network executives and producers to make her look bad and make good television, CBS launched an internal investigation into the show’s climate and Osbourne’s allegations.

The show was interrupted in the meantime and more allegations surfaced against Osbourne, while actress Leah Remini (a one-time presenter) unloaded details in conversation with Yashar Ali.

She alleged that Sharon had called former presenter Julie Chen a ‘wonton’ and called Gilbert a ‘p *** y licker’ during the show’s first season.

Osbourne’s camp fired back to CNN: “ The only thing worse than a disgruntled ex-employee is a disgruntled former talk show host, ” adding that Sharon was “ disappointed but unfazed and hardly surprised by the lies. ”

As things continued to go south, it was said that Osbourne had become an attorney with Eisner and attorney Jeremiah Reynolds and was demanding a large payout. “The network will have to pay her a hefty settlement to keep her quiet afterwards,” said a source Page six

After a deep dive into the situation, CBS released a statement that they had “ split up ” with Sharon, although a source told DailyMail.com she was “ forced to quit ” and was thinking about seeking damages.

The CBS statement said, “ The events of the March 10 broadcast were disturbing to all involved, including the audience watching at home. As part of our review, we concluded that Sharon’s behavior toward her co-hosts during the March 10 episode was inconsistent with our values ​​of a respectful workplace. We also didn’t find any evidence that the CBS executives orchestrated the discussion or blinded any of the hosts. ‘

The show will return with live programming sometime in April with existing hosts Gilbert, Underwood, Elaine Welteroth and Amanda Kloots.
