-- Actress Holly Robinson Peete is back, welcoming reality TV cameras into her life to share the love and challenges she and her family experience day-to-day.
The mom of four stopped by “Good Morning America” to discuss her new project. She admitted she wasn't sold on the show's concept at first but felt it was a great way to raise awareness about autism (Robinson Peete has a teenage son with autism).
“I think we have a great platform, especially with our autism journey,” Robinson Peete told “GMA” co-anchor Robin Roberts. “If I had seen a show on TV with a family talking about autism, when we got our diagnosis in 2000, I would’ve had a little bit of hope...maybe a little road map, maybe a template to follow.”
Robinson Peete and her twins, Ryan Elizabeth and Rodney, have also written the book “Same But Different: Teen Life on the Autism Express," that describes their experiences with autism.
As for her 21-year-long marriage to NFL star Rodney Peete, Robinson Peete simply credits the couple’s ability to staying “on the same page.”
"We look at our marriage as almost like a business deal so when you work in a corporation, you got to sit down and debrief with each other,” she said. “So, we have to do that on the regular or this will never work.”
