Robin Roberts: 'I Feel the Best I've Felt in a Long Time'

Originally posted 05/08/2013 03:15PM

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.

"I feel great. I feel the best I've felt in a long time – and I mean that sincerely," Roberts told PEOPLE Monday at the 12th Annual Women Who Care Luncheon benefiting United Cerebral Palsy of New York City.

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.

Robin Roberts hit a bump on her road to recovery last week, but says she's feeling better after a brief hospital stay.

The Good Morning America anchor fell ill while on vacation in Key West, Fla., she told fans in a Facebook post Thursday morning.

"I began not to feel well. Nothing serious, just under the weather," she writes. "I contacted my doctors and flew back to NYC. They felt it best to admit me into the hospital for a few days. Seems my young immune system needed a little boost to fight off 'opportunistic infections.' "

Robin Roberts Welcomed Back to GMA by the Obamas

A standing ovation from her crew greeted Robin Roberts at the door of the ABC Times Square studio of Good Morning America, even before the sun rose Wednesday – exactly five months after the anchor had a bone marrow transplant to treat myelodysplastic syndrome, or MDS, a rare blood disorder.

Outside, in the street, a crowd of fans had already gathered with placards, banners and even an ebullient fellow from Dallas waving what he called the world's largest wristband, hailing his heroine. It read, "Welcome Back Robin."

Once the show hit the air, Roberts, with her colleagues surrounding her, looked into the camera, broke into a great big smile, and announced: "Hi, it's Robin. I've been waiting 174 days to do this: Good Morning America!"

Robin Roberts: My Dark Days, My Brave Fight

Originally posted 02/16/2013 09:00AM



Sitting in a white fluffy bathrobe in front of her bathroom mirror, Robin Roberts – still recuperating from a bone marrow transplant just five months earlier – seems at ease with her striking reflection. Just as she was after battling breast cancer in 2007, Roberts is once again bald, but this time she's skipping the wig.

"Whatever," the Good Morning America anchor says with a shrug. "I'm thankful I have a pretty-good-shaped head." And the 30 lbs. she's lost from her 5'10" frame during her month-long hospital stay? "It's been hard to put back on, a first in my life," she admits. "But I gained a pound last week in New Orleans. Woo-hoo!"

And when Charlie Gibson, an old friend and former GMA cohort, drops by her Manhattan apartment and asks how she is, she replies as if nothing eventful has happened: "I'm good. How are you?" she says casually. "No, I wasn't being polite," Gibson replies. "I really want to know, 'How are you?' "

In an exclusive interview, Good Morning America's Robin Roberts reveals for the first time that there was a point after her September bone marrow transplant, "where I felt like I was dying."

It was a few days after Roberts, 52, underwent the transplant for a rare blood and bone marrow disorder called myelodysplastic syndrome. "I couldn't eat or drink," she says. "I couldn’t even get out of bed."

Fading in and out of consciousness, Roberts recalls, "I was in a coma-like state. I truly felt I was slipping away … then I kept hearing my name."
