Pat Summitt spent the weekend with longtime friend Robin Roberts of “Good Morning America.”

Former Lady Vols coach Pat Summitt took to Twitter Monday and wrote: ”@RobinRoberts, really enjoyed spending the weekend with you! Looking forward to your return to @GMA on Wednesday.”

After a bone marrow transplant and a long period of recovery, Roberts, a cancer survivor, is on her road to recovery.

Roberts left ABC’s “Good Morning America” in August for treatment of a rare blood disorder. She had a bone marrow test that revealed no abnormalities, reports said.

Roberts is scheduled to return to her duties on “Good Morning America” Wednesday. It airs at 7 a.m. on WATE, Channel 6.

n New blood. Bearden native Dale Dickey is returning to “True Blood” this summer to howl yet again.

“Yes, I am returning to ‘True Blood.” It kinda figures since I was alive at the end of last season — the storyline of my kidnapped granddaughter/pup still left open,” she told me earlier third week. “Production is well under way for season six.”

But don’t ask her what’s going to happen.

“I have no idea what their future plans are for (my character). But I am most grateful to be back at work with my pack-mates. About all I can say,” Dickey said.

The Knoxville native and University of Tennessee graduate was introduced in 2012 as Martha Bozeman, the matriarch of a werewolf pack.

She was out for answers — and a bit of revenge — when she showed up, hoping to locate her grandchild and find out who murdered her werewolf son. A bit of a roughneck, Martha softened somewhat as she started getting some of the answers she was seeking.

Dickey, a Los Angeles resident, visits her hometown often because her parents still live here.
