In an interview with "Good Housekeeping", Roberts said: "News flash: Some people like their anonymity. This is what’s right for me. Love is love, and I’m grateful to have that. Sometimes there’s a stigma attached to how people view you if you’re living a certain way. But I don’t care — you gotta live your life. You gotta find what happiness is and what it means for you, and you can’t get caught up in what someone is saying about you on Twitter. You don’t go through a year like I did to not be happy and not make your own choices."
Last December, Robin Roberts openly spoke for the first time about her relationship with Amber Laign in a message in which she thanked all her close friends and family to have supported her in the disease (see our article: TV Anchor Robin Roberts Talked For The First Time About Her Same-Gender Relationship).
