'It’s very messy': Gayle King calls 'Good Morning America' 'sloppy' amid TJ Holmes and Amy Robach's affair
NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK: 'Good Morning America' and 'GMA3', have become "extremely chaotic" and "sloppy" in the light of the affair between their co-anchors, according to Gayle King. The comment was made because of the recent revelation that TJ Holmes had many affairs on the show, one of which was with co-anchor Amy Robach.
The co-anchor of 'CBS This Morning' at first supported her two news colleagues, but she later admitted on 'Watch What Happens Live' on December 8 that things started to go worse than she expected. “In the beginning, I actually thought, good on ‘Good Morning America.’ They’re saying they’re not taking them off the air. It’s two consenting adults,” King began. “But then the more you read, it’s just very messy,” she said, referencing the fact that Robach and Holmes were married to other people when their affair began.
“I think, to me, it’s just a sad situation because you’ve got kids involved, you’ve got families involved, and I keep thinking about that. I’m very concerned about that,” King, 67, explained to Page Six.
This week, ABC News removed Robach, 49, and Holmes, 45, from 'GMA3' when "messy" facts from Holmes' personal life started to emerge. Robach is close to finalizing her divorce from her now-estranged husband Andrew Shue. Page Six reported that Holmes' wife, Marilee Fiebig, was "blindsided" by his affair because not only had they been trying to get back together, but Fiebig had also previously kept most of her focus on her husband's other affair with another 'GMA' producer named Natasha Singh. “She fell in love with him. He had a key to her apartment,” an insider told of Singh’s romance with Holmes.
It was also reported that he allegedly had affairs with multiple ABC employees, so Robach and Singh are not the only people who appear to be the apple of his eye. After the shocking news broke, ABC News decided to look into Holmes' actions to see if they were against company policy. “It’s one thing for him to have a relationship with another anchor,” said an insider. “The question is whether he violated company rules by dating less senior employees.”
Homes and Robach have not been seen together in public since they signed off for the weekend one week ago, leading some to speculate that they have broken up. But, according to TMZ sources with ties to both Homes and Robach claim that despite keeping a low profile to avoid drawing more attention to the situation than necessary, they are still "very much together." On December 5, ABC pulled the co-anchors from their show 'GMA3: What You Need to Know'. They won't appear again on the program until ABC News determines how to respond to the most recent revelation of their affair.
