The fraus will be salivating over this fictionalized account of the life of this modern day saint.
Is she terminal?
Is she like ex-general and Pres. Grant trying to cash in before she dies?
If not, who would possibly care about Robin Roberts' autobiography?
This is her second book.
Surely her third, "Hiding In Plain Sight: The Glass Closet" will be released soon, too!
When is that dyke gonna come out?
I have to say I like her, but really, who does she think she's fooling? Someone like her could be a great role model for gay women and African American women as well.
Will she talk about the woman (as reported in the tabloids) who decided to end their relationship because the woman couldn't cope with the bone marrow situation?
Who really cares? Nobody, her 15 minutes will be up before long.
R7, what if she got fired after coming out and viewers turned on her, boycotted advertisers, etc.?

Interesting. I hadn't read that.

Doesn't one of her cohosts have a gay husband??
Will she mention the lesbian sucking?

I'ma play her in the movie version. Academy Award, here I come, baby!

I like her too, but I am a bit pissed that she has not truly come out as well. Visibility does matter. Hell, she would be a role model to me and other black glbt women. Well to all glbt women. Yet she remains silent. Why? Perplexed. She has been so open in regards to other aspects of her life. In an article that appeared in People she did mention that she appreciated Cyndi Lauper's work to increase acceptance of the glbt community, but that was all she said concerning that topic. She was presenting at an awards event that was honoring Cyndi lauper.

No. First of all the memoir will chronicle her battle with MDS. Second, those tabloid rumors are false, based on the woman's social media feeds.
Sam Champion came out several months ago, and GMA is still kicking The Today Show and that CBS early morning show's asses in total viewers and squeaking by them in the 25-54 demo rating.
Angie won't let her get away with this. We'll soon hear that Ms. Jolie is removing the bottom half of her body to avoid disease.
Does she have a partner?
She is only on GMA intermittently now and doesn't look well.
I have a female friend (lesbian) who vacationed with a group of about 10 lesbians, including their partners, about 10 years ago. They went to Key West several times a year for several years, until some of the couples started breaking up. RR was one of the vacationers.
Yeah, I have read that she has not been cleared by her doctors for a full work load yet. Just 3-4 days a week. Besides being skinny because of the 30 plus pounds she lost how else does she not look well. She did say that she feels like 80% now. And before when people asked her how she feel before she would say good but not mean it.
We will never know because RR is very private about her private life.
So she's dying? Too bad she seems nice enough.
I can't help but notice that she doesn't seem to like Josh Elliott. I don't blame her.
This book of self-canonization will be lapped up by the fraus who think she is str8. If she even hints at not being a man-lovin' type of gal they will stay away in droves. Anybody who thinks this colossal phony is going to come out in this book is seriously stupid.
Robin will probably come out in the book. When a celebrity releases a book there always has to be some salacious detail that has not been talked about publicly before in order to drive sales.
Jimmy Connors - Chris Evert had an abortion
Clive Davis - Bisexual (Gay)
Sam Champion came out and married a guy, the ratings for GMA have not been affected. Methinks that ABC News Execs probably wanted to test the waters with Champion first. Him leaving the show if it caused the ratings to slide would not be as big of a deal as if Robin were to leave the show.
Now that Champion has shown that it has had little to no affect, I am sure ABC News Execs have given their blessing for Robin to step out of the closet.
Watch, the book will be released in either November, February or May to get maximum ratings impact during a sweeps month.
Puhleeeez R28. Deluded much? This book will be allllllll about the brave and valiant struggle to overcome cancer that our plucky heroine has been waging. It will not mention her pussy eating nor will it mention the millions of dollars of free health care she got courtesy of her employer-provided totally-free Cadillac health plan.
[quote]I guess she'll be coming out in her book.
That's what I was thinking. Pretty hard to tactfully avoid the absence of a man for your entire life, but I'm sure it can be done if she's desperate enough.
R22, who was RR's partner?
Will there be any inside scoop about DTM and Gio?
[R22]She does love Key West. Do you know, or rather, does anyone know any other 411 on closet case Robins?
The key element that will keep her closeted is her Christianity. She might be gay but I don't think she's cool with it. She gives every indication of being a self-loather. She's probably told Sam Champion she prays for him.
[quote]I have to say I like her, but really, who does she think she's fooling?
Well, since her Mom died, apparently herself. Denial ain't just the setting for Elton John's Broadway extravaganza "Aida", Honey.
R34 do you really think that she is in denial, lol?
Christianity is of paramount importance to her, and others especially in the Black community. I can't tell you the number of black churches I have gone to where they say how being a homosexy is an abomination. She probably isn't cool with it. It is not like Robin is at all active in the gay community. What indications does she give of being a self-loather? She sends her blessings to many. How can you be gay and a Christian. Makes no sense. They want no part of you.
Her fake smarminess has always bugged the hell outta me.
Our Robin is an inspiration to us all on how to handle a serious life threatening crises with grace and dignity.
[quote] What indications does she give of being a self-loather?
In your own words..
[quote] I can't tell you the number of black churches I have gone to where they say how being a homosexy is an abomination. She probably isn't cool with it.
Has she ever been to MichFest?
How about she comes out as gay but says she doesn't practice gay sex?
A little off topic but...Mellody Hobson used to do reporting on markets and economic trends for GMA, she has since moved on to CBS News. Apparently, during her time on GMA, she had a torrid affair with Diane Sawyer. Even more interesting Mellody has bearded for George Lucas since 2006 and became engaged to him in January.
Has anyone noticed how close Diane and Robin are. Diane was on set when Robin announced her bone marrow transplant and Diane was shown visiting her in the hospital on the day of her surgery. I don't think they are an item but I def think the fact that they are both closeted lesbians has caused them to form a special bond.
She used to/or still is with the bb coach of Auburn
Hey, Andy/r31, who is "DTM"? I think you are on to something, r42. So who are the straights on GMA? Josh Elliot, lol?
Josh is straight but is very close to both Robin and Sam, go figure. The straight frat boy is friends with the flaming gay guy and the butch lesbian. Josh is being groomed to take over for George when he leaves the show. Josh has a huge ego though and rubs some people the wrong way.
Lara is also straight and is very close with Sam. She is somewhat delusional though. Lara thinks that when Robin leaves GMA that they will offer her the anchor position. Almost comical if you think about it.
What is so comical about this, R45?
R44 DTM is DL icon David Tyler Muir, of course.
[quote]Josh is straight but is very close to both Robin and Sam, go figure. The straight frat boy is friends with the flaming gay guy and the butch lesbian.
Josh's Father was gay.
Is that a rumor, or has he confirmed it?
It's best you spend you money on a celebrity that has the balls to come out and who will has been cleared of cancer. Tig's memoir will be out in a year and will be better priced that Robins. Also, please support Tig's documentary. Proceeds might go to assorted cancer research agencies.
Great r52, nice to hear we have an ally in Josh. I think most people who dislike him just have a knee-jerk aversion to his frat boy type.
Interesting that so many high-profile news people are gay.
Dianne Sawyer and Robin Roberts are gay but closeted.
Sam Champion came out.
Don Lemon came out.
Stephanie Gosk and Jenna Wolfe came out and are engaged to each other.
Anderson Cooper came out.
