Ah crap. I was all set to start watching GMA again. I bet they can't keep their hands off each other.

Amid the revelation of an alleged romantic relationship, ABC is sidelining “GMA3” anchors Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes from the midday news program for the time being.
ABC News President Kim Godwin alerted the editorial staff to her decision Monday in a meeting.
“It’s become an internal and an external distraction, the relationship between two of our colleagues,” Godwin said, according to an employee on the call who was not authorized to share details publicly. “While the relationship is not a violation of company policies, I have taken the last few days to think through what I think is best for our organization. For now, I’m going to take Amy and T.J. off the air while we figure this out.”
ABC has declined to comment.
Gio Benitez and Stephanie Ramos anchored Monday’s episode of “GMA3: What You Need to Know,” which airs at noon weekdays on WLS-Channel 7.
Amy Robach, 49, and Holmes, 45, made headlines Wednesday when the Daily Mail published video and photographs that made it apparent something romantic was happening between the two married anchors. One picture showed the two holding hands. Another showed Holmes patting Robach on the bottom.
Robach wed “Melrose Place” star Andrew Shue in 2010. They listed their New York City apartment for sale in September. While the pair did not have kids together, Robach has two children from her first marriage.
Holmes tied the knot with attorney Marilee Fiebig in 2010. Together they share one daughter, Sabine Holmes; Holmes has two children from a previous marriage.
Holmes appeared to hint a marital strife in a March 2020 Facebook post in which he admitted he gave Fiebig “plenty of reasons, excuses, and opportunities to walk her fine (behind) out the doooooooor. But instead, with her built-in black woman superpower, she showed a grace and patience that’s incomprehensible.”
Neither Holmes or Robach directly addressed the scandal in last week’s shows, but Holmes appeared to poke fun at the scandal Friday.
“It’s too bad it’s Friday,” Holmes said to his co-anchor. “It’s been a great week. I just want this one to keep going and going and going.”
Robach lightheartedly shot back, “Speak for yourself. I am very excited about the weekend.”
