You know what they say, “hindsight is 20/20.”
The co-anchor of “Good Morning America 3” basically flaunted his “friendship” with Robach while the two were having an off-camera, behind-the-scenes, months-long affair.
The T.J. Holmes & Amy Robach Scandal Gets Even Crazier!
In an interview with The New York Post, Holmes called Robach his “best friend” and ‘GMA’ his “dream job.”
This interview took place just a few weeks before their scandalous relationship was brought to light and subsequently got them kicked off air.
Holmes Flaunted His Relationship With Robach In Interviews
“I am a really, really lucky dude … I am now in my absolute dream job … And I get to sit next to my best friend doing it,” he gushed to The Post on Oct. 21.
He said this prior to the two running the Nov. 6 TCS New York City Marathon.
In the same interview, Holmes went on to explain how happy he was anchoring ‘GMA3’ with Robach.
“I never ever ever could have imagined things working out the way they have,” he said.
Obviously, Holmes had no idea the s**t storm that was about to unfold after the Daily Mail published photos of the couple together at a bar canoodling, laughing and holding hands.
Since their relationship unexpectedly went public, both Robach and Holmes have been taken off of ‘GMA3’ and an investigation by ABC into Holmes’ previous intimate relationship with staffers is underway.
According to reports, ABC’s investigative bells began ringing after news of his relationship with Robach, producer Natasha Singh and at least one other staffer hit the press.
T.J. Holmes Is Under Investigation By ABC
The human resources department is looking into the philandering co-anchors past with the company to see if he had any other relationship with staffers underneath him.
“It’s one thing for him to have a relationship with another anchor,” an insider told Page Six. “The question is whether he violated company rules by dating less senior employees.”
ABC News chief, Kim Godwin, seemed to hint at a “no stone unturned” approach to Robach and Holmes’ scandal during a Monday company-wide meeting.
She decided to temporarily take Robach and Holmes off the air until the situation gets sorted.
Obviously now, Holmes’ inability to keep it in his pants has really put ABC between a rock and a hard place.
Both Robach & Holmes Have Been Taken Off Air
The Blast previously reported that Godwin informed staffers on December 5, of the co-anchors-turned-lovers temporary absence from ‘GMA3.’
She told ABC News employees during an editorial call on Monday that while Robach and Holmes did NOT violate any company policy, ABC News “wanted to do what’s best for the organization.”
ABC News executives are staying mum on the matter with the media.
Sources tell DailyMail.com that Stephanie Ramos and Gio Benitez will host GMA3’ this week while ABC works out how to handle the PR nightmare.
“There is massive confusion internally,” a source said. “ABC News executive Kim [Godwin] has taken them off the air while they deal with this internally.”
Furthermore, in a recently resurfaced audition tape from 2014, Holmes said he was a “proponent of marriage.”
Holmes Once Said He Was A “Marriage Proponent”
Holmes was auditioning for “Entertainment Tonight” and said on tape, “Marriage gets a bad rap so many times. I’m such a marriage proponent. I want everybody to get married. I think everybody should and I think you’re better off in doing so.”
Holmes married his wife, Marilee Fiebig, in 2010.
The TV news personality was engulfed in multiple affairs with co-workers.
He reportedly had a years-long affair with a ‘GMA’ executive producer prior to his relationship with Robach.
This executive also worked with Robach at the time of their affair with Holmes.
The exec reportedly left ‘GMA’ in 2017.
On December 4th, we reported on Robach and Holmes getting confronted about the affair by another ‘GMA’ co-anchor.
Veteran anchor and TV personality, Robin Roberts, reportedly confronted her co-workers about their affair years ago.
In a report from Page Six, Roberts warned Robach and Holmes about the rumors circulating in the office regarding a possible romance between them. Multiple sources confirmed this to the outlet.
An insider revealed that Roberts pulled them both aside and basically told them to “Stop it.”
