A few weeks ago, only daytime TV viewers were familiar with the name T.J. Holmes. But in recent days, a lot more viewers have now developed an interest in the host. This is due to reports of an alleged relationship between him and his co-workers, in particular, his GMA co-host, Amy Robach. Despite being suspended by ABC, the two hosts have kept up their relationships even though they are both going through divorces. Since their suspension, Holmes’ extramarital affairs have become public, and an insider is now speaking out.
In addition, T.J. Holmes recently gave off the impression that he was completely unconcerned about the fact that his job at ABC may be in jeopardy due to his alleged affairs with coworkers.
A day after Page Six published exclusive information about the suspended GMA 3 host’s alleged affair with a younger ABC employee, he was spotted talking on the phone and grinning widely.
T.J. Holmes appeared unbothered and unnerved
T.J. Holmes walked through Manhattan on Friday while sporting a black peacoat, a red Atlanta Braves dad hat, gray sweatpants, and white sneakers. He even smiled and pointed at the camera in another picture. In fact, information about Holmes’s past relationship with a script supervisor while working on GMA surfaced this week. They not only had an affair, but they allegedly also engaged physically while they were at work. According to an insider, Holmes had s*x in his office with Jasmin Pettaway, who was only 24 at the time.
The insider who was close to the script coordinator at the time claimed, “He was a predator who took full advantage of his position and he was reckless.” The insider added,
“It was Jasmin’s first real job in television, and it was a big deal for her. She was looking for a mentor, and she reached out to several people. T.J. was someone who was responsive, but he absolutely abused the position of trust.”
When the alleged affair took place, in 2015, T.J. Holmes and his now-divorced wife Marilee Fiebig were still legally married. The insider called the actions “reckless,” but added that the daytime host didn’t appear to “care” much about how he was coming across at the time. When news of Holmes’ alleged relationship with GMA 3 co-anchor Amy Robach became public in November last year, his issues at ABC began to fall.
Will T.J. Holmes be fired from GMA after his alleged affairs?
T.J. Holmes has allegedly had multiple affairs before, so Amy Robanch is not the first one. Since his relationship with Robach made headlines, the TV personality has been accused of having affairs at least two additional times. According to reports from last December, he had a long-term relationship with Natasha Singh, a producer for GMA. There were rumors that at one point, a third affair took place with a former show employee, but there were few specifics. It’s not clear if these latest allegations are connected to that second alleged affair.
Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes are still being spotted spending time together.
Will Holmes and Robach make a comeback to the screen? This is the principal question that remains unanswered. Apparently, ABC has already found a replacement anchor, according to reports. We’ll have to wait and see how things turn out at the daytime program.
