Good Morning America Anchor Robin Roberts finally came out as a lesbian over the weekend. In a ‘thank you’ note posted on her Facebook page, Roberts acknowledged her longtime relationship with girlfriend Amber, a middle aged Caucasian woman who is rarely photographed in public with Roberts. This is not news to longtime fans of Roberts, who frequented lesbian bars in Atlanta in the 1990s when she worked as a young sports reporter for a news station in Atlanta.

GMA anchor Robin Roberts was all smiles on her first day back on the set since August. Roberts, 52, arrived at the ABC studios at 5 a.m. and sat at her desk in the middle of Times Square. A small crowd of well wishers were there with homemade signs to welcome Roberts back.
“Hi, it’s Robin, and I’ve been waiting 174 days to say this: Good morning, America!” she said. “I am so full of gratitude. I share this morning, this day of celebration, with everyone.”
President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama welcomed Roberts back in a pre-taped video.
“You’ve been an inspiration to all of us and we couldn’t be happier doing what you do best,” said the president. “It’s great to see you back in that chair and we’re all excited to start our morning with you once again.”
Mrs. Obama added: “We just want you to know that the whole Obama family – we’ve been thinking about you and praying for you and rooting for you every step of the way.”
‘Good Morning America’ co-anchor Robin Roberts returns to work tomorrow (Feb. 20). The 52-year-year-old cancer survivor, who underwent a bone marrow transplant last Fall, believes she is up for the task. But friends and co-workers are not so sure. Roberts was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2007. Last year she learned she had a rare blood disorder called myelodysplastic syndrome — possibly a side effect of the anticancer drugs.
Another side effect of chemotherapy drugs — baldness — means Roberts will have to wear a custom lacefront wig on the set.
“Whatever. I’m thankful I have a pretty good shaped head,” she says in an interview published in the Feb. 25th issue of PEOPLE. She is confident that her hair will grow back, but she isn’t so sure about the 30-pound weight loss.
Preident Obama’s rumored lady friend Kerry Washington was spotted entering ABC Studios in New York City today for an appearance on ‘Good Morning America’ to promote the popular TV series, ‘Scandal’, about an American president who can’t keep it in his pants. How ironic.
