For those of us who keep up with the adventures of Robin Roberts’ personal life, the news that she’s a gayelle and has had the same girlfriend for centuries is about as surprising and new as the news that John Travolta’s Scientolohole loves to eat massage therapist dick. But Robin officially twirled out of the glass closet yesterday when she mentioned her partner of 10 years, Amber Laign, in a Facebook post where she reflected on the year she’s had. Robin returned to Good Morning America earlier this year after she took a leave of absence to have a bone marrow transplant.
Flashback 12/29/12….Hard to believe this was 1 year ago today..when I reached a critical milestone of 100 days post transplant…and KJ was finally allowed to come back home.
Reading this comforts me and I hope the same for you: “If you are depressed, you are living in the past. If you are anxious, you are living in the future. If you are at peace, you are living in the present.” At this moment I am at peace and filled with joy and gratitude. I am grateful to God, my doctors and nurses for my restored good health. I am grateful for my sister, Sally-Ann, for being my donor and giving me the gift of life. I am grateful for my entire family, my long time girlfriend, Amber, and friends as we prepare to celebrate a glorious new year together. I am grateful for the many prayers and well wishes for my recovery. I return every one of them to you 100 fold.
On this last Sunday of 2013 I encourage you to reflect on what you are grateful for too.
Wishing you a Healthy and Happy New Year.
Peace, love, and blessings to all..XO
Congrats to Robin! The official Queen of all Lesbians, Rojo Caliente, will send her a welcome basket in the mail. And now that Robin Roberts is publicly OUT out, we can grab the baton from her hand, open the closet door and wave it at Queen Latifah.
