The Good Morning America star also has a beautiful apartment in New York, where she stays during the week so that she can easily commute to the ABC studios to co-host the morning news show.

And while it is an idyllic place, the TV star made a memorable comment about her apartment on GMA earlier in the year – and it caused quite the stir!

The 61-year-old revealed the downside to living in her house, telling her co-stars, including weatherman Sam Champion: "I spent several days – a few days – in Connecticut, got back to New York, walked into my apartment last night, and a blast of cold air – wind had blown up one of the windows in the living room."

The star was of course joking, but that didn't stop her co-stars from reacting.

Michael Strahan was heard shouting: "Oh! Oh! Oh!" off screen, as Robin added: "I'm totally kidding, totally joking."

Michael then went on to pose in a comical fashion to mock what his co-star had said. "Well, we'll just move right along," Sam said through laughter, before adding that Robin's place was indeed a "lovely home."
