Robin Roberts's fans always worry about her when she's off-screen too long (just check out her Twitter), but the Good Morning America anchor says people needn't be concerned.

Roberts, rocking tight black leather pants and spiked heels at the luncheon to celebrate women's accomplishments, took Thursday and Friday off last week on the heels of a brief hospitalization in April. But taking care of herself has worked wonders, she says.
