As Lara Spencer and Amy Robach continue to butt perfectly-coiffed heads on the set of Good Morning America, Robin Roberts has come forward to make it clear she’s solidly in Spencer’s corner. The fan fave reveals why she and Spencer are BFFs — and burns Robach in the process — in her new memoir, Everybody’s Got Something, and only RadarOnline.com has all the details!
Though Sam Champion and Josh Elliott have since left GMA in turmoil, Roberts spends a good chunk of her book reminiscing about the good old days when they made the perfect team with her, Spencer and George Stephanopoulos.
“What you see is what you get on our show, and our affection and energy in the morning is real,” she writes of the foursome, neglecting to mention Robach, despite the fact that she has been making appearances on GMA since 2012 before joining full-time last year. “We really like one another, have fun with one another and respect one another.”
“Sam Josh Lara, and I hung out together after work,” she reveals. “George would join us occasionally…”
“We all brought something to the table. George Stephanopoulos is the grown-up. … Sam Champion has a booming laugh, but is serious and compassionate when out in the field … Josh Eliott is the tall, handsome jock who melts when talking about his precious little daughter. Lara ‘I Brake For Yard Sales’ Spencer is a bundle of energy who has perfected the art of covering pop news.” As for Robach? No mention.
“When I’m asked why we have been so successful the last few years, my response has always been the same,” Roberts continues. “It’s ecause of the team in front of and behind the camera. The audience can tell we truly like each other, and we make others feel good too.”
But Robach can’t have felt good about being left out of the praise. In fact, Radar has learned, she’s left out of the rest of the book too, appearing just once when Roberts briefly recalls how she was “so nervous” to have a mammogram on air, and takes credit for saving Robach’s life by urging her to do it!
“I urged her to do the segment,” Roberts claims, writing that after Robach was diagnosed with breast cancer, “She later told me, ‘Robin, your words kept echoing inside of me: if I got the mammogram on air, and it saved one life, then it would all be worth it. It never occurred to me that life would be mine.”
As Radar has reported, Spencer and Robach have been engaged in an epic girl fight on the GMA set, with Robach claiming “shameless flirt” Spencer is unprofessional.
Spencer was promoted to co-host earlier this week, making Roberts’ diss all the more painful.
