However, Roberts is such a phoenix–constantly rising from the ashes, beautiful and brazen. She’s been in the “Good Morning America” studio shooting test runs and will be back on the air this year. “I have to get back on ‘GMA’ time … That’s one thing I have not missed is that alarm clock,” Roberts joked.

“I should be back sometime in February. Now I have a date in mind that’s very personal and very important to me but I will ultimately listen to, of course, what my doctors say and, course, we have to remember we’re in the height of flu season. There’s a lot of factors still,” she said.

We’re so happy for Robin! She deserves her success!
