Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes are likely out of GMA following their romantic affair, and this is being reported by Page Six. It’s surprising that there hasn’t been an official statement from ABC since they started investigating the romantic affair.
Could it be that the couple has been fired low-key?
Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes are likely out at “GMA3” just six weeks after their affair came to light, multiple sources tell Page Six.
“They have not been terminated yet, but I don’t expect T.J. to be on again,” an insider says. “They do want Amy to stay and be a part of things there, but likely not on ‘GMA3.’”
We’re told the scandalous news couple “hired lawyers to deal with [negotiating].”
TMZ reported early Thursday that Robach has hired famed civil attorney Andrew Brettler to represent her while Holmes is working with Eric George.
Neither attorney immediately returned Page Six’s request for comment. A rep for ABC didn’t comment on the posting.
The co-anchors haven’t been on the air since early December, when they were replaced with a rotation of fill-in news personalities after ABC president Kim Godwin decided their romance was too much of a “distraction” for viewers.
“After a lot of thought, I am taking Amy and T.J. off the air as we figure this out,” Godwin said at the time, adding that while the affair was “not a violation of company policy,” the decision to take them out of their anchor chairs was necessary for the “GMA” brand as a whole.
The pair’s affair marked what appeared to be the beginning of the end for Holmes, as it came to light that he was involved in other workplace affairs, but Holmes believed he would be cleared by the network.
“Of course, he’s taking [the review] seriously, but he’s confident he’s done nothing wrong that would merit him to lose his job,” a source told us at the time.
Although the two journalists haven’t been seen on the air, the pair have been keeping busy with each other.
Not only have they been seen leaving each other’s apartments on multiple occasions, but Robach and Holmes also spent the holidays traveling and making out like teenagers in Miami.
