Brian Stelter interviews Robin Roberts

In the above video, "Good Morning America" co-host Robin Roberts sits down with Brian Stelter to discuss her cancer recovery, her relationship and "GMA's" success.

On "GMA" no longer being the underdog now that it's consistently winning in the A.M. ratings race: "'When you strut, you stumble' - we're not going around saying we're number one. We're doing exactly the same thing as we have done all along, from the moment I have gotten here, and that's trying to produce the best show that we possibly can. And it's very gratifying that the public is responding and... making us number one. So by no means are we going around thinking we're top dog."

On the impact of her decision last December to start speaking publicly about her girlfriend Amber: "So many people have come up to me... and said that they can now have a conversation with their parents... I've been so busy fighting for my life that I didn't even think about that aspect of the story, but I'm very grateful that it is creating dialogue for families."

On seeking therapy: "I've been doing a lot more work lately with cancer survivorship and the millions of people who survived cancer after going through a lot of collateral damage with the medication and other things that have saved our lives, and I'm not ashamed to say that I needed help. I need to seek a therapist and do from time to time, just because of the psyche. Because when you not once but twice had been at death's door, you're still standing, you go through this guilt of 'Why am I still here?' ... So it is something that I think is very important. It's still a teachable moment for people."
