We’re not terribly familiar with Robin Roberts or her work on Good Morning America. More importantly, we don’t believe that her private life should be anyone’s business but her own unless she chooses to make it so.
That said, we do think that her decision to very nonchalantly reveal the fact that she has been involved in a relationship with another woman for more than a decade via yesterday’s year-end Facebook post is important enough to merit a comment.
Why? Because it reveals the changing nature of the relationship between public personalities and the people who know them by name.
