Robin Roberts

Sidelined from Interview

With Chad Johnson's Ex

Robin Roberts
was forced to back out of the first interview with Chad Johnson's estranged wife Evelyn Lozada since he allegedly attacked her earlier this month -- and TMZ has learned, it's due to Robin's health crisis.

Sources tell us ... Evelyn agreed to sit down with Robin on "Good Morning America" to discuss the Aug. 11 domestic violence incident -- because she feels Roberts has tremendous integrity as a reporter.

The interview was set for this week, but hit a snag when Lozada asked Robin to tape the segment at her hotel ... since Evelyn wanted a private setting for such a serious conversation.

We're told Roberts couldn't make that happen because she would have to miss a treatment session for her blood disorder ... myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS).

As we reported, Roberts is scheduled to start a leave of absence this Friday to receive a bone marrow transplant.

We're told Amy Robach is stepping in for Robin, but Evelyn's more than happy with the replacement.

How did Evelyn manage to attach her name to Robin? I doubt if she was ever planned to interview Evelyn.
At some point Eve is going to have to face the music.
She is like Harpo and Sophia on the Color Purple.
Harpo beat on Miss Sophia.
Miss Sophia beat on Harpo.
She was hit because she hit others.
She might have hit Chad first.
Go back and look at her jumping across that table like a animal.
