T.J. Holmes and Amy Robach are coanchors on “Good Morning America.” Both are also married to other people — Robach to actor Andrew Shue and Holmes to attorney Marilee Fiebig. Yet on Nov. 30, photos emerged of the pair enjoying what appeared to be a romantic weekend in upstate New York, which led to their rumored relationship going public. While neither of the anchors has directly addressed the rumors just yet, Holmes and Robach seemingly joked about their week on Friday’s broadcast of “GMA.”
“You know, it’s too bad it’s Friday. It’s been a great week,” Holmes said. “I just want this one to keep going and going and going. Just enjoy it! Take it all in.”
Robach responded, “Speak for yourself. I am very excited about the weekend — and I’m sure everyone else is too. We all love our Fridays around here. Some of us do, at least.”
The coanchors’ banter comes amid reports that they won’t face disciplinary actions for their relationship. Per Entertainment Tonight, this is because Holmes and Robach are equals and consenting adults. Still a source told ET that the office romance is on everyone’s minds. “There has still been no word from management addressing their relationship, but that’s all anyone can talk about around the office,” the source revealed. “When and if they will ever address the elephant in the room, it’s still unclear.”
On Nov. 30, the Daily Mail, which first published the photos, shared a number of shots of the pair drinking beers, walking around, and holding hands in a car.
The day the photos appeared online, both hosts deleted their respective Instagram accounts. Neither have addressed the images, and reps for both hosts did not immediately respond to POPSUGAR’s request for comment.
Shortly after the photos emerged, a source told People that both Robach and Holmes are no longer together with their spouses. “This was two consenting adults who were each separated. They both broke up with their spouses in August within weeks of each other,” the source alleged. “The relationship didn’t start until after that.” A source also told Entertainment Tonight that their relationship had been “going on in secret for quite some time, but how long is truly unknown,” and added that they “did their best to keep things professional and private.”
Both anchors married their respective partners in 2010. After the photographs emerged, Robach’s husband, Shue, appeared to delete all photos of his wife from his Instagram account, according to E! News. Robach has two girls of her own from a previous marriage and is stepmom to Shue’s three sons. Meanwhile, Fiebig, who shares one daughter with Holmes, currently has her Instagram account set to private and has not publicly addressed the photographs. Holmes also has a son and daughter from a previous marriage.
Holmes has frequently shared expressions of love for his wife over the years. “If she would even spare another 10 minutes of her time for me today, I should consider myself blessed,” he wrote in a 2020 tribute to Fiebig in celebration of 10 years of marriage. However, in November, he shared a quote on Instagram that read, “End the relationship and cry once. It’s better than being with them and crying daily,” according to Us Weekly. Fans also noticed that Robach’s wedding ring seemed to be missing from her finger in a few November Instagram posts, according to Yahoo Entertainment.
Neither host addressed the drama in their Thursday afternoon appearance on “Good Morning America.” In the past, though, the pair have been open about their friendship. “The moment he started at ABC, I think we just clicked,” Robach previously told People of her relationship with Holmes. “We’ve gone on tons of double dates with our spouses, and my daughters babysit his daughters.”
