The ex-host of “GMA3” has moved on from his 12-year marriage to Marilee with his former “GMA3” co-host, Amy Robach.
Their affair came to light in November, but their romance behind-the-scenes had been months in the making.
T.J. Holmes’ Estranged Wife Is Making Life Changes!
Robach finalized her divorce from actor Andrew Shue earlier this month, so she is legally a free woman!
Holmes on the other hand has yet to finalize his divorce from Marilee, but she’s taking matters into her own hands and has seemingly dropped “Holmes” from her name.
Taking to her Instagram Story, Marilee shared a photo of herself in her friend’s magazine, Margot’s Magazine.
She captioned the IG Story, “My creative and talented friend launched @themargotmagazine, a beautifully curated online platform celebrating women. Beyond proud of you @simonesilverman.”
In the actual article, she went by “Marilee Fiebig.”
Marilee Fiebig Drops “Holmes” From Her Name!
In addition to this minor detail, her section of the magazine read, “Lawyer Marilee Fiebig’s wardrobe features classic button-downs and perfectly fitted jeans. For Margot’s fantasy shopping spree, this busy mother elevated her basics with a tough of sparkle and a pop of color.”
While she’s going by her maiden name in the magazine, it doesn’t look like she’s changed her social media handle.
She is still going by “Marilee Fiebig Holmes” on Instagram and her handle is @marileefholmes.
Marilee hasn’t deleted the ex-ABC host from her Instagram account either.
Weeks after Holmes and Robach’s affair came to light, the Immigration Lawyer shared a statement via her attorney.
On January 4th, her attorney, Stephanie Lehman, shared to Daily Mail, “During the holiday season and in light of the challenging times, Marilee’s sole focus has remained on the overall best interest of her 9-year-old daughter [Sabine].”
Marilee Is “Disappointed” & Feels “Disrespected”
Lehman emphasized that her client, Fiebig, is focused on their daughter and making the divorce process as amicable as possible.
Lehman, Fiebig, Holmes and his legal counsel have been working to “move the divorce forward privately, expeditiously and as amicably as possible.”
“Notwithstanding, we continue to be disappointed by T.J.’s lack of discretion, respect and sensitivity toward Marilee and the party’s daughter,” Fiebig’s divorce attorney added.
Holmes’ estranged wife has “been touched by the outpouring of support” since the scandal first made headlines.
“She did not know he was having an affair,” a source told Us Weekly, adding that the mother of one is still angry over his actions.
The source added, “[she] continues to be disappointed by his lack of discretion and respect for her and their marriage.” Holmes has since filed for divorce from Fiebig, although it is unclear when it will be finalized. In the meantime, he has flaunted his romance with Robach since it became public knowledge in November 2022.
All these have brought great unhappiness to Fiebig, as she now understands there is no hope for reconciliation. The insider continued, “[Marilee] knows he’s definitely not coming back. She feels disrespected because they are all over each other in photos, and she’s hurt because she sees it’s the real deal and knows now he’s not going to reconcile with her.”
