Robin Roberts

P.S. I'm Gay

12/30/2013 7:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

robin-roberts-gettyRobin Roberts just officially came out of the closet ... telling the world she's gay and has a longtime girlfriend.

Robin just recounted her triumphs over the last year on her Facebook page ... talking about her battle with cancer and how she overcame the odds and regained her health.

In the middle of her Facebook essay she said, "I am grateful for my entire family, my long time girlfriend, Amber, and friends as we prepare to celebrate a glorious new year together."

It's kind of cool the way she did it, she didn't scream it from the mountain tops ... but she revealed her true self in an authentic way.

Good for Robin.

Yeah, it was time to play this card, Sam is gone, today show is trying to raise ratings, the gay card was the last ditch effort to get higher ratings. Anyone with a brain knows she is gay and abc bide their time to use personal info to gain viewership. Come tomorrow that is all you will hear about , nothing about gumble & pauley on today show.

whether she is rich or poor, gay or straight, Robin came forward and shared her life because she has fought a huge hurdle fighting off cancer and however she lives her life is no one else's business. Just because she is famous does not give anyone the right to comment or put her down. I don't follow her or really know who she is but I wish her the best, in health and in love. To everyone else, worry about your own lives and stay out of others.
