ABC Staff Go “Zero Contact” With Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes, Encouraged to “Never Mention Their Names Again”
It looks like ABC has officially washed their hands of Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes’s cheating scandal.
According to an inside source, Radar Online reported, “Inside ABC, it’s like Amy and T.J. never existed.”
“Their offices have been emptied and their pictures removed. Staffers are encouraged to never mention their names again,” they continued. “Even Robin Roberts and George Stephanopoulos have had zero contact with them after years of working together. The TV business is rough.”
The former Good Morning America co-hosts were pulled off the air after The Daily Mail published explosive images of the two cozying up together on multiple occasions, revealing their extramarital affair. After a “contentious” mediation session to determine what their future at ABC would look like, it became increasingly clear that they could not be put back on air. The two left the network in January with a “huge payday,” sources claim.
The affair also uncovered ABC’s “rampant culture of sex,” with multiple current and former staff members coming forward about both Holmes’s inappropriate behavior and the show’s generally “adulterous” culture behind the scenes.
But this might not be the end of the road for them. Radar Online also reported that the pair have been in talks with NewsNation. An insider told Radar that the two “aren’t done with television and remain confident another network or cable channel will see the value in their undeniable chemistry.”
“Amy knows where her friends are — and neither she nor T.J. have any left at GMA,” another source claimed. “Almost everybody in the newsroom is happy they won’t be back.”
It seems that all sides of the scandal are ready to move on.
We might not see Robach and Holmes back on Good Morning America any time soon, but there’s certainly still room for the lovers on daytime television. Just look at Mark Consuelos and Kelly Ripa.
