    I always thought she was a "woman in comfortable shoes." It's really no big deal, especially after Sam Champion turned into a flamer with the weather.

    Good for her although I put this in the same category of Andersen Cooper's coming out where this information wasn't really ever a secret, they just chose not to speak out about it before. I think the rules are a little different if you have a long time partner and you're in the public eye because you want to protect your family from the world. And let's face it, you want to keep your job ratings as high as possible.

    I thought she was on the team. Glad she feels comfortable enough to share it.

    I thought it was common knowledge and I'm somewhat surprised at the media stir created by the announcement. I've been a fan of her's since way back in the day when she was one of the few women covering professional sports. I'm glad that she's now comfortable enough to share this with the public. Bottom line is that it's her personal business and not our's.

    What a brave and courageous thing to do. God bless her, her family and all of GMA.

    I always thought she was family since nothing was ever said about her personal life. Congratulations to her, very supportive her partner, her family, her supportive friends, and her supportive colleagues.

    Haha, I was actually saying the same thing. The only recent surprise for me has been Jason Collins.

    Yeah, definitely a gaydar-blip on her. Really like her - classy, smart and glad she's comfortable enough with her life to acknowledge her girlfriend, who's been through a lot with her.

    The only one I was truly not surprised by was Matt Dallas. He's a good looking guy with some masculine qualities, (and I'm proud that he's my gay brother) but his love interest on Kyle XY never rang true. There was a disconnect between the character he portrayed on TV, and who I felt he really was. I was even less surprised by him coming out than Ricky Martin.
