Tavis Smiley interview


Roberts discusses her career, her bout with cancer, and her new memoir, Everybody’s Got Something, in this interview for PBS.

And yes, when I was a little kid playing in Mississippi and somebody would hurt my feelings or something and I’d come in, and Mama said, “Oh, honey, everybody’s got something.” When I got older and the challenges became a little bit more than someone just picking on me, I remember in 2007 when I was diagnosed with cancer, and she sweetly said, “Honey, everybody’s got something.”  That’s what I tried to impart in this book, the life lessons that I learned, to help me get through my something and hopefully get people on the road to something better.

People cover

robinRoberts appears on the cover of People to discuss her battle with cancer and how her loved ones helped her through it.

I was at my absolute lowest when my mother passed days before my transplant. I wanted to go away. I was done. But as my sister Sally-Ann told me, it takes courage to believe the best is yet to come. That is where I feel I am now.
