What do these people have in common? They all publicly admitted that they were ill and none of them pulled the disappearing act that Robin has pulled. Valerie Harper has been very open about it and Robin Roberts appeared on TV bald as an egg. Seriously, what is the big deal? If Robin is ill, and we know she got a bad diagnosis in May of 2012, who is she helping by hiding it? Wouldn't she be doing the public a better service to be open about her illness and show the world how she's fighting it? Certainly that act of bravery would get her some measure of respect around here. Instead she pulls this disappearing act and Howard wants us just to ignore it. Bizarre.
