TJ Holmes e Amy Robach hanno fatto notizia a livello nazionale il 30 novembre dopo che il Daily Mail ha pubblicato un articolo che svelava la loro relazione di sei mesi. L’outlet ha fatto trapelare le foto dei co-conduttori di “Good Morning America” che lasciano gli appartamenti l’uno dell’altro, frequentano un bar locale e hanno persino beccato i due durante un fine settimana nello stato di New York. La notizia della loro relazione è stata una sorpresa perché entrambi i conduttori sono sposati e stanno con i rispettivi coniugi da più di un decennio.
The journalists have been open about their friendship over the years and Robach was thrilled to find out Holmes would be joining as her co-host back in 2020. "[They] said, 'Hey, we want to bring on a co-anchor. What do you think of T.J. Holmes?' And I almost fell out of my chair," she said during an interview with People. "You couldn't have picked a better person to ask me what I thought of, because we've been trying to figure out a way to work together for literally the last five years."
Despite their on-air chemistry, Holmes' affair with Robach wasn't his first rodeo.
TJ Holmes had an alleged affair with several of his colleagues
It appears TJ Holmes has a thing for his co-workers. According to Page Six, the "Good Morning America" co-host was previously involved in an alleged affair that spanned over three years with producer Natasha Singh. Their relationship began in 2016 and his wife Marilee Fiebig allegedly found out about their budding romance in 2019 after uncovering several alarming emails. In addition to his affair with Singh, others sources have revealed to the outlet that Holmes was reportedly seeing another colleague during his time at ABC.
Holmes and Robach appeared on-air just hours after their affair was revealed, however they were eventually pulled from the show so that the network could reevaluate what steps to take in light of the news. Although their relationship was consensual and the pair didn't necessarily break any rules, ABC News' President Kim Godwin told employees the alleged affair has caused "internal distraction" and as a result took matters into her own hands for the betterment of the company. "I am going to take Amy and T.J. off the air while we figure this out," Godwin said on a call, via Fox News.
Sources have also revealed to ET that Holmes and Robach both cut ties with their spouses prior to their relationship. And, although neither have publicly addressed the situation, Robach's husband Andrew Shue seemingly erased all traces of his estranged wife on his Instagram account.
