Amy Robach and T. J. Holmes were spotted kissing in Los Angeles hours after ABC officially announced their departure GMA3: what you need to know.
The former co-anchors were seen holding hands and cuddling on Friday, Jan. 27, in photos posted by the Daily mail. Robach, 49, even wrapped her legs around Holmes, 45, as he lifted her off the ground. The two were beaming with huge smiles and were also reportedly seen cuddling.
Their former employer confirmed that they had left the network earlier that day after being absent since late November 2022. The relationship between Robach and Holmes was made public on November 30 after seeing them getting cozy outside the ABC studio. They returned to the news desk on December 1, a day after the scandal broke. While they didn’t cover the photos, Holmes joked, “Who’s looking forward to the weekend?” Robach raised her hand. “Of course we are.”
After more than a month of absence, Us weekly exclusively revealed that ABC had no plans for the two to return. “Amy and TJ are out, a decision has been made,” a source told me Us earlier this month. “The network is negotiating their exit deals with them and an announcement.”
The Alphabet Network made Robach and Holmes’ departures official on Friday. “After several productive conversations with Amy Robach and TJ Holmes, regarding various options, we all agreed that it would be best for everyone that they depart from ABC News,” the company said in a statement released Friday, Jan. 27. released. “We recognize their talent and dedication over the years and are grateful for their contributions.”
At the time their affair first made headlines, the duo were both publicly married to other people. However, the Arkansas native has since filed for divorce from Marilee Fiebig after more than ten years of marriage.
For her part, the former NBC news correspondent has been tight-lipped about the status of her marriage to actor Andrew Shue. The estranged couple tied the knot in 2010 and are stepparents to each other’s children; Robach shares daughters Ava and Analise with ex-husband Tim McIntosh while Shue, 55, shares sons Nate, Aidan and Wyatt with ex-wife Jennifer Hageney.
That’s what another insider told me recently Us that the Robach and Shue are “still trying to co-parent and be amicable” amid their split. “She is still in her stepchildren’s lives and [is] trying to make amends with the kids and her ex,” the source added.
However, Robach and Holmes do not intend to hide their relationship. They packed the PDA on a trip to Florida after Christmas ahead of the final photos of them in Los Angeles.
“It’s not an affair and they are seriously in love,” a source told exclusively Us earlier this month. “And they will now be completely open about their relationship.”
