Chris Brown had the blogosphere -- and the water cooler -- buzzing with his outburst, which included a shattered window, after an appearance Tuesday on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” So what did news anchor Robin Roberts, the woman who seems to have sparked it all, think?

Roberts appeared Wednesday on “The Gayle King Show” on OWN. When asked by King if she thought the interview had gone well, Roberts was frank: ‘Oh, no. I didn’t think it had gone well,” she said. “But by no means did I feel that it didn’t go so well for him to react as he did.”

During the sit-down, Roberts pressed the singer about the legal troubles stemming from his 2009 altercation on a Los Angeles street with then-girlfriend Rihanna.

‘I wasn’t trying to go back down memory lane and rehash every detail ...’ Roberts added, saying that her point was to note that a judge eased a restraining order regarding Rihanna and that it signaled a new beginning for him.


But she’s not mad at Brown. In fact, she’d like to have him back. She told viewers on Wednesday morning’s ‘GMA’ that she and the show’s producers would ‘love to have him back’ -- and Brown is said to be ‘seriously considering that.’ ShowTrackers, think that’s a good idea?
