I feel that Holmes and Robach’s affair lasted much longer than they let on.
They are trying to shorten the timeline because if it was going on longer, they can’t lie and say they were estranged from their spouses.
Robin Roberts knew what was up.
GMA host Robin Roberts spoke to co-workers T.J. Holmes and Amy Robach after she heard rumors about their affair, colleagues have claimed.
Holmes and Robach who were both married, are both said to have left their respective partners after an alleged months-long affair became public earlier this week thanks to an explosive DailyMail.com exclusive.
It has now been revealed that speculation had swirled around the couple for years – possibly as early as 2017 – with chief anchor Roberts among those aware of the claims.
One source alleged to Page Six Roberts ‘pulled them both aside and basically said, ‘Stop it.”
Roberts reportedly decided to address the rumor head on after hearing about them in the newsroom while working on the number one rated US morning show.
Holmes is said to have flatly denied the allegations at the time when asked.
Robach and Holmes were spotted enjoying one another’s company in bars off Times Square close to the ABC studios where the morning show is broadcast from.
The co-stars appear to be taking the scandal in stride as they continue to anchor the news without responding to the explosive report that has sparked a PR nightmare for ABC and disrupted the television program.
Earlier on Friday, after the show’s taping, Robach was seen moving out of the New York City home she once shared with her now estranged husband Andrew Shue, where she broke her silence on the controversy for the first time.
Robach appeared in good spirits despite the scandal, smiling and waving to the cameras before politely answering questions from DailyMail.com.
When asked if she had anything to say, Robach replied: ‘It’s been great. I’ve gotten a lot of support. And, you know, I appreciate everything, and I’m happy to be going to work,’ before getting into a black service car.
ABC executives have taken the pair off the air until the controversy dies.
