Actress Sara Gilbert

to leave CBS' 'The Talk'

Sara Gilbert is leaving the daytime talk show she helped launch.

Gilbert announced Tuesday on CBS' "The Talk" that she's decided to exit as a co-host because of her packed work and personal schedule.

Gilbert, who produces and stars on ABC's "The Conners," said her life was "slightly out of balance."

She wasn't spending enough time with her three children, she said, lamenting she had yet to make her 4-year-old's baby book.

She will finish out the current and ninth season of "The Talk" and plans to return as a guest co-host. Gilbert's replacement wasn't announced.

Memorial planned

for Nipsey Hussle

Rapper Nipsey Hussle will be mourned at a public memorial Thursday at Staples Center in Los Angeles.

The memorial begins at 10 a.m. No details were given about who may be appearing, performing or speaking.

Hussle, a 33-year-old father of two and a hip-hop artist as beloved for his work in his community as his music, was fatally shot March 31 while standing outside his South Los Angeles clothing store.

Two days later, police arrested Eric R. Holder Jr. in the killing and on Thursday prosecutors charged him with murder. Holder has pleaded not guilty.
