"GMA3: What You Need to Know" co-anchors T.J. Holmes and Amy Robach are reportedly on their way out at ABC after mediation sessions failed to be fruitful, TMZ was the first to report.

Allegations of an affair emerged publicly in November 2022, thrusting the two news journalists — who were legally married to other people at the time — into the national spotlight.

Holmes married attorney Marilee Fiebig in 2010, and Robach has been married to actor Andrew Shue since 2010. Since the news broke, it's been reported that both couples were separated before Robach and Holmes got together.

People published a report containing information from an anonymous source at GMA3 who said Holmes and Robach were both effectively single when they began dating.

"This was two consenting adults who were each separated. They both broke up with their spouses in August within weeks of each other," the staffer reportedly said.

"The relationship didn't start until after that," they added. If this information is accurate, then neither Holmes nor Robach was romantically linked to anyone else when the photos were published in Daily Mail.

"We can give you a few more plot lines," Robach replied, as her colleagues laughed.


Witherspoon jumped on the opportunity to take the show's stories to the next level.
