    Robin Roberts begins her medical leave for her bone marrow transplant today. She hadn't planned to start her leave tomorrow, but she and her sister needed to go to their hometown in Mississippi because their mother is having health problems. Robin goes into the hospital next Tuesday; there is no estimation of how long she will be there...it could be months, depending on how she progresses. Her sister, her perfect match, had her marrow harvested a couple of days ago and is feeling fine; she was on the show (GMA) today. It was an extremely moving show today; they, truly, have a family on GMA. Martina McBride was there and sang a song, something about "I'll Love You Through It" (I'm sure somebody else knows the title better than I do); I was a complete mess. Martina even had to turn around to wipe away tears. They really love them some Robin! I think I'm going to check out the "Be The Match" site. Her showmates couldn't get enough of her today, plus they brought out all of the people who worked there; they had signs that said "Team Robin". Her sister is 8 years older that Robin is.

    They have to totally knock out her defective bone marrow and immune system, introduce her sister's healthy marrow, and then work on building her immune system back up. She could be ready to go in a month, or it could take several months. She will be in isolation for a long time.

    I was watching also, shay, and was a total mess right along with you. Robin has been through so much but she is a tough cookie and I have no doubt she will get through this. I will be praying for her.

    I'm sending out positive wishes for Robin. The girl has suffered enough. She is due some fun without all the medical drama. Hope to see her back at work whenever she feels it's time.

    She has such a good outlook, and a whole team ( team Robin) behind her. I wish her all the very best.

    The problem is NOT that Harry was naked in the room, the problem is he allowed pictures to be taken.
    Apparently, Harry may have an even bigger problem than nekkid photos. Reports are now surfacing that there was weed and cocaine use by some people at the party (but not Harry) and at least one known hooker among the women. And that there is a video being shopped around that contains more than Harry's bare bum. The presence of illegal drugs takes the incident to another level.

    I doubt this was the first time Harry partied this way, and he's certainly following in the family tradition. Even Princess Margaret, the Queen's younger sister, was known for some scandalous behavior (at the time). His uncle, Prince Andrew, was known as Randy Andy, a notorious womanizer back in the day, and was in love with a porn star (Koo Stark). He was also involved in a more recent incident in NYC involving teenaged hookers. Earl Spencer, Diana's brother, also has a reputation as a womanizer. And we all know what Prince Charles was doing with Camilla that continued throughout his marriage to Diana. You could almost say that Harry was genetically predisposed to become the hard partying, "bad boy/dirty girls" prince.

    It will be interesting to see if the palace is able to contain this incident, perhaps making sure the video never surfaces by purchasing it and any other photos worse than the ones already published.

    My best wishes, prayers, and good thoughts go with Robin. She's a helluva lady, and the entire country is pulling for her.

    Can't WAIT to see her back on GMA!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Yep, MizDaisy . . .

    Everything you've stated is true, I think. Makes a LOT of sense. Given the family track record, one DOES have to wonder --- even if only as an off-the-wall daydream --- whether or not Harry was hatched under a dark, Party Time Windsor star.

    Personally, I DO believe there is probably more out there about Harry that's coming. News about drug-dabblers around him AND a tape. And I DON'T believe --- try as they might --- that the Buck House movers and shakers will be able to contain any new news or details of Harry's goings-on. I mean, this is the 21st century. EVERYBODY and his brother has access to a camera and voice recorders. EVERYBODY and his brother, pretty much, likes, wants or needs money. And yep, there are MORE than a few of 'em out there that would have NO problem turning over the goods for a nice payday, as we've already seen.

    Oh, well . . .

    At least, what with this being the 21st century and all, we DO know that he's not gonna wind up in the Tower!

    Either way, whether or not more stuff gets unearthed, it's a shame. I just hope Harry's learned something from this mess. Even if the only thing he's learned is to be more mindful of his own personal safety, in future.

    I hope so.

    ITA, pictures and videos can be transmitted almost instantly and once they're out in the public domain there is no "plausible deniability." Harry is entitled to a private life, but he can't surround himself with people he doesn't know and assume they'll all respect his privacy.

    I just hope Harry's learned something from this mess. Even if the only thing he's learned is to be more mindful of his own personal safety, in future
    I agree, it's not just about protecting him from being photographed.

    Robin Roberts's mother died last night. Robin and her sister did get there in time to be with her before the end. Just so much to have to endure for this lovely woman. The loss of one's mother is, usually, one of the worst losses one will have to endure.
