Storm Sahara: Robin Roberts' Partner, Girlfriend Set Intimate Wedding Date?
on Apr 01, 2013 10:22 AM EDT
After Good Morning America co-anchor Robin Roberts returned to ABC's hit morning show on Feb. 20 after she underwent a bone marrow transplant to treat the rare blood disorder, the popular morning show host was outed and rumored to wed her longtime partner.
When Roberts went on sick leave for five months from Good Morning America to undergo treatment for MDS, a rare blood disorder, she was apart from her partner, Storm Sahara, according to National Enquirer. A source revealed that as Roberts was recovering from treatment, she made plans to reconcile with Sahara and "vowed" to propose to her.
Another insider who claims to work "closely" with the former sports anchor said the couple are together again and set to get married but because of Roberts' job at GMA, she will continue to remain private about her relationship.
An unnamed source sent an email to MStars on March 22, and wrote: "I work closely with Robin Roberts on a daily basis, so yes I know a great deal about her and Storm Sahara. They are indeed extremely private but only because of Robin."
The insider gave details about Sahara. She is "known throughout the LGBT community" wrote the source, adding that (Sahara) is an "independent film director (who) also owns a few boutiques throughout North and South Carolina. " The insider, however, feels that Roberts "shouldn't be afraid to tell the world about her beautiful wife to be."
The source confirmed that they are back together again and rumors of the couple getting married are certain.
"Things have been very silent between those two. However, they are back together, and from what I know a date has been put in place for a private wedding."
"According to Robin there will be no family or coworkers involved," the source continued. "Kind of sad because I thought at least she would invite her Glam Squad or co-anchors. But this is their wish in agreement..."
Another source told Rhymes With Snitch the same- that the wedding date had been set and the couple have been "quietly" planning a wedding ceremony for just the two of them, without any family or friends invited.
Other sources shared eyewitness accounts of seeing Roberts with Sahara together getting their marriage certificate at Manhattan's City Clerk's Office on March 25.
The sighting occurred the same week that the U.S. Supreme Court began hearings on California's Proposition 8 and the Defense of Marriage act.
Roberts will be honored with the Artur Ashe Courage Award at the 2013 ESPYS on July 17.
