Even Elliott jibed Roberts for the way she was fangirling in excitement over the car reveal. This was the first look anyone had had of the 2015 Mustang, and it certainly met Roberts' approval as she oohed and ahhed her way around the car. Watch the whole segment here.
Though she didn't get to drive the vehicle, Roberts did manage to slide into the passenger seat of the Mustang before anyone really noticed. So what was her early review of the car? "Off the charts, baby. Off the charts," she says as Elliott laughs. »

"Good Morning America's" Amy Robach's struggles with cancer have continued to get harder since she was diagnosed with breast cancer after her on-air mammogram. After getting a double mastectomy, she found out the cancer had spread to her lymphnodes and she now needs to begin chemotherapy.
It's a hard diagnosis to receive, but one Robach says she is partially prepared for because of one of her coworkers: Robin Roberts. Roberts successfully defeated the cancer in 2008, and Robach knows she can do the same.
"I saw Robin do it," she says during an interview on "Gma," confirming she will continue to work during her treatment. "You give me strength, Robin."
Over Thanksgiving, Robach said her family went around the table and said what they were thankful for. That's when it sank in for her to be thankful for what she still has. »
