Robin Roberts is on a short break from "Good Morning America" ahead of her medical leave. Count Whoopi Goldberg as one of the many fans who miss her.
Goldberg recently sent her best wishes to Roberts on Twitter. "@robinroberts I miss u in the mornin ur doing what needs to be done I know but still miss u. & Please give ur mom a big hug 4 me," she wrote.
Roberts announced that she was taking an unexpected break from the show on Tuesday. "Well, a full disclosure here, I’m not feeling too well," she told viewers.
