Good Morning America: Wife of GMA host TJ Holmes ‘blindsided’ by affair with co-star

The wife of a Good Morning America host TJ Holmes was “blindsided” by his alleged affair with co-anchor Amy Robach.

A staff member told the New York Post’s Page Six that Holmes and his wife, Marilee Fiebig, had been separated for six months but were trying to “work things out” when news of his romance with Robach broke on Wednesday.

“She’s devastated. She had no idea,” our source said. “They haven’t been together in [a while], but they were trying to work it out.

“They were just together for TJ’s birthday,” which is August 19.

The source noted that while Fiebig hadn’t been wearing her wedding ring, the now-estranged couple were attempting to reconcile.

Spokespeople for Holmes and Fiebig didn’t return Page Six’s requests for comment.

Holmes, 45, and Robach, 49, allegedly have been romantically intertwined since March despite their respective marriages to Fiebig and Andrew Shue; however, sources told the newspaper this week that Robach and the Melrose Place star’s divorce is nearly finalised.

“He moved out earlier this summer,” one source shared. “They’ve constantly had problems over the years, and they finally broke up.”

Robach and Shue, 55, tied the knot in 2010, two years after her divorce from Tim McIntosh, the father of her two teenage daughters. Holmes and Fiebig also wed in 2010.

Holmes shares daughter Sabine with Fiebig, who’s an immigration lawyer. He also has two other children, Brianna and Jaiden, with his ex-wife, Amy Ferson.

Eyewitnesses spotted the broadcasters “canoodling” in bars near the US ABC News’ network’s Midtown Manhattan headquarters in May. Then, weeks before thanksgiving in late November, Holmes and Robach went on a getaway to a cabin in upstate New York, where he was seen grabbing her butt.

“They’re not ashamed. They’re two consenting adults who ended up loving each other,” one ABC source told Page Six.

“It’s not how they wanted [news of their relationship] to come out, but it’s also kind of a relief,” the source added of cozy photos published by the Daily Mail.

The pair arrived at ABC studios together on Thursday and taped GMA3 – an offshoot of Good Morning America – without mentioning the scandal.

An ABC staffer later confirmed to Page Six that there will be no disciplinary action taken against the co-anchors.

“All they care about is the ratings,” our source shared. “This is ratings gold. That’s why [ABC News President] Kim [Goodwin] wanted them on the show today.”
