Popular news anchor Robin Roberts made her highly-anticipated return to "Good Morning America" on Wednesday, Feb. 20 following her recent bone marrow transplant to treat MDS. The stunning 52-year-old broadcaster looked happy and healthy, and was ecstatic to join her fellow ABC co-hosts back on the air. Since Roberts' return, online searches concerning her dating life have skyrocketed. Many fans want to know - is Roberts a lesbian? And if so, does she have a girlfriend or romantic partner? Roberts remains very private about her personal life, but that hasn't stopped the rumors from swirling. One report suggests that the "GMA" sweetheart is currently dating a woman by the name of Storm Sahara, but very few details actually support that claim. No matter what her sexual orientation or what the rumors may entail, Roberts is a strong and motivational woman who has an extensive and loyal system of family, friends, and fans that will always be there for support. Read on for further details.
Here are some facts about Roberts' alleged "dating life" that Mstarz already reported on:
Love Life, is Roberts a lesbian and does she have a partner?
Roberts has never officially come out as gay, although speculations that the 51-year-old broadcaster may be a lesbian began to surface back in May when she was interviewed by President Barack Obama. Many inside sources claim that she scored the coveted interview because she is "black and gay." Roberts is unmarried, and she keeps her romantic life very private.
Are there photos of Roberts' "supposed" partner?
While this is a widely searched topic on Google, the answer is no. Rumors have it that Roberts does have a girlfriend; one inside source has claimed, "It's hardly a secret in the business. I've seen her girlfriend. She's around the building all the time-very attractive and well-dressed." Even if this is true, Roberts' relationship remains concealed and the partner's name has yet to be released.
Roberts has been romantically "linked" to former Czech American tennis player and coach Martina Navratilova as well as former Auburn University basketball coach Nell Fortner. But again, these are just RUMORS currently circulating on the web. Roberts never officially came out as being in a romantic relationship with either woman.
Now reports have it that Roberts may be dating a fellow colleague at 'GMA' named Storm Sahara, but such rumors are hard to believe considering no valid information concerning this partner seems to exist. When one is to search "Storm Sahara" on the web, that's exactly what shows up - a sandstorm in the Sahara desert...
One report currently flying around on the web, with no reputable source to support such claims, insists:
"It is no secret that Robin Roberts long time girlfriend is Storm Sahara, it's under raps because of their 23 year age difference."
But Roberts obviously wants her personal life to remain just that - personal. And her friends, family, and colleagues wholeheartedly accept that. On her return to "GMA" on Wednesday, Roberts exclaimed, "I have been waiting 174 days to say this, Good morning, America." And it's great to have her back!
