Robin Roberts, a supremely popular anchorwoman on Good Morning America, is used to breaking big stories. But she has become the talk of the town since broadcasting her own bit of news on her Facebook page this weekend: the 20-year TV news veteran revealed to the world that she is a lesbian and involved in a loving 10-year relationship with a massage therapist named Amber Laign.
While reflecting on all that she is thankful for this past year, Robin wrote: "I am grateful for my entire family, my longtime girlfriend, Amber, and friends as we prepare to celebrate a glorious new year together." That's it. She just kind of slipped it in there, casually -- yet the world can't stop chatting about the super-cool way she has come out.
