Robin Roberts explains why she didn't talk about her girlfriend Published: April 14, 2014

Robin Roberts recently opened up about some of the reactions she got when she came out as gay, according to The Huffington Post.

The "Good Morning America" co-host made headlines when she came out in a Facebook post last December, and subsequently talked about her longtime girlfriend Amber on air. Roberts also shared a photo of the two of them with family members at her niece's wedding.

In a new interview with Good Housekeeping, Roberts said she was overjoyed by many of the responses, but that there was also some criticism from people who asked why she hadn't disclosed her 10-year-old relationship with her girlfriend earlier.
