“I think one of the reasons that I have lasted so long in the entertainment business is because I truly believe that my purpose is to help other people tell their stories,” she shares exclusively with theGrio.

Speaking specifically to the 90 Day Fiancé franchise, she explains, “It has been so much fun being a part of the 90 Day Fiancé franchise and 90 Day bares all. I’ve been hosting the show for several years now and it keeps growing and growing and growing.”

She even jokes that her own mother is a big fan of the reality TV series, saying, “she is absolutely addicted to the show!” Still, Robinson insists there is much more to the series than just entertainment, as there is plenty to learn about human behavior and relationships through the show.

“All of these shows just really bring home the point that communication is the key to any good relationship. The couples that you see through their ups and downs, it always it always surprises me that they are able to talk about things that under normal circumstances, maybe they wouldn’t say anything about, but we make them bring it all to the surface. They are really baring all.”

Later in the conversation, Robinson opened up about her hard work in the news and entertainment business, and the secret to her longevity.

“I think that one of the things that contributes to my longevity is that I had the foundation of being a journalist,” she shares. “I studied journalism when I was in college and I knew that I wanted to be not just a talking head, but somebody who could really, you know, respect the art of journalism, because I do really think it’s an art, the integrity of journalism and working as hard as I could to be the best journalist that I could be.”
