It was her first visit to the show since undergoing a bone marrow transplant in September. Last week, Roberts explained that she would be doing a series of doctor-approved “dry runs” before officially re-joining the show.
“My doctors want me to see how many people I actually come in contact with,” Roberts said. “How my body reacts to the stimulation, that’s code word for stress, of being in the studio environment.”
She added, “My skin is very sensitive and so we have to see how it reacts to the studio lights. My vision is still a little blurry from the treatment. All of this is getting better day by day so that is the next step.”
