Tavis Smiley interview

Interview0 Comments

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.
