Amy Robach And T.J. Holmes Unashamed Of New Relationship
The duo arrived at work Thursday afternoon feeling unashamed of being in a relationship, Page Six reports. Amy and T.J. also refused to address news of their romance while anchoring GMA3 despite arriving as a couple.
Insiders mentioned that the couple felt welcomed and loved by their ABC colleagues, who even prayed for them.
“They’re not ashamed. They’re two consenting adults, who ended up loving each other,” a source said.
The source added that the pair had not seen each other since Tuesday when the news first broke out. Meanwhile, Amy and T.J. are reportedly upset that news of their romance came out that way. However, they are relieved that it is finally out.
Sources also claimed that the GMA co-anchors have been dealing with rumors of an affair since their friendship started. The sources added that insinuations of them hooking up in 2017 caused them to be cautious around each other.
“The rumors freaked them out. They panicked. They weren’t true, and after that, they were terrified to hang out together or be on-air and be too friendly,” another source said.
The first source disclosed that the twosome doesn’t think they owe anyone an explanation. However, they are upset that their daughters got exposed to it this way.
Amy And T.J. Got Together Because Of Marital Woes
Another source familiar with the couple revealed they’ve been “good friends for eight years.” They claim their romance began in August as they both dealt with marital woes.
T.J. and his wife, Marilee Fiebig, reportedly had marital problems throughout the years, including rumors of his infidelity. They hit a rough patch last year, and he moved out temporarily, only to move back in after a while.
The 45-year-old finally moved out “four months ago,” and sources say he found succor in Amy while he went through that. The journalist was planning to get a divorce, and no one knew until recently.
At the same time, Amy had also hit a rough patch in her marriage. Sources say that her marriage officially ended “about six months ago” and that she was upset about it.
Another source claimed that Amy and her husband, Andrew Shue tried to make things work. They added that she was sad that it didn’t and that their issues weren’t due to infidelity.
