It was a poorly held secret Miss Roberts.
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

It's not about whether it was previously 'known'  or not.

It is simply a manufactured opportunity to show how wonderful gays really are after the Phil Robertson smackdown...

Most likely, yes.
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

I thought that was the reason she was given that interview with obie is because she was gay?

Michelle Obama congratulated "Good Morning America" host Robin Roberts and her newly acknowledged girlfriend, Amber Laign, as Roberts marks her remarkable recovery after a bone marrow transplant.

"I am so happy for you and Amber!" the first lady tweeted Monday, while the first family spends the holidays in Hawaii.

"You continue to make us all proud," Obama added, signing the tweet "mo" to indicate she authored the message and not her staff.
