Robin Roberts joins Ellen today to talk about her coming out and her girlfriend Amber Laign, who stood by her during her battle with cancer.
Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...
Roberts talks about Laign in a new memoir called Everybody's Got Something:
Roberts and Laign have “been together for nearly a decade,” she reveals in the intimate memoir. “Mutual friends set us up on a blind date. I liked the fact that she had no idea who I was. She rarely followed sports, so she never saw me on ESPN, and her office mates at the time watched a different morning show … ouch!”
Roberts continues, “She’s originally from Northern California and is extremely laid-back, no drama, no fuss. The main thing we have in common is positive energy. She sees the good in everyone.”
