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.
