Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes Not Returning to GMA till Internal Investigation is Completed

More fallout from the scandal involving Good Morning America anchors Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes.  After the duo, who have been allegedly having an affair, were removed from the morning show temporarily, now comes word they won’t return until ABC News has completed their internal investigation on the matter.

According to a memo obtained by E! News, that circulated on December 12th, ABC News president Kim Godwin shared that Robach and Holmes, “will remain off-air pending the completion of an internal review.”

She added, “I understand that the continuing coverage can be distracting from the incredibly important work our team does here at ABC News. It is my hope that we will continue to focus our energy on what we do best, and I want all of you to know how immensely proud I am of your hard work and professionalism.”

Godwin shared until the investigation is complete and final decisions are made, GMA3: What You Need to Know, will feature a “rotation of anchors for the time being.”

Robach and Holmes have been sidelined since the network was caught by surprise when the Daily Mail released photos of the two looking quite cozy and romantic in an upstate bar in New York.

Currently, Gio Benitez and Stephanie Ramos have been filling as co-hosts of GMA 3.

The romance of Robach and Holmes has not hurt the GMA 3 ratings.  In fact, on December 1, the day after their affair came to light, the show had an average of 1.81 million tuning in which was a marked 11% increase from the average of the three broadcasts prior. That was followed by a viewership of 1.71 million on December 2nd.

By the time GMA 3 was being anchored by Gio Benitez and Stephanie Ramos, the show had averaged 1.67 million viewers, which was the same as Robach and Holmes last episode before they were temporarily pulled off the air.  The next day of Benitez and Ramos saw a rise to 1.74 million, but by Wednesday, it had down-turned slightly to 1.68 million.

Amy Robach has been married to former Melrose Place star Andrew Shue since 2010, while T.J. Holmes had been married to attorney Marilee Fiebig since 2010, as well.

So, what do you think of the latest update from ABC News, that Amy Robach and T. J. Holmes will not be back on the air until an internal review is completed from the network? Comment below.

“Internal Investigations” never end well. I say this as the subject of the first such “internal investigation”, way back when in Heaven.

I don’t watch GMA 3, but those of you who do… prepare for it’s cancellation by the tie this all plays out.

ABC used to be the “Love in the Afternoon” network… remember that promo for the string of their soaps in the 80’s ? Honestly… good for them for putting some love back in the afternoon since ABC took away our soaps !

I liked the two of them together. They were good co-hosts. I didn’t know they were sleeping together. Who cares, everyone in Hollywood cheats anyway!

Enough already, we’re tired of the drama. Give the people back their jobs, they are consenting adults.

Roo,
Right you are. There are a lot worse things seen and heard, consensual and not that go on in the entertainment world and probably our own lives as well.If they are hurting anyone,it still is not our business, We Are Not Our Brothers Keeper. In this day and age, everything and anything seems to be the right thing and you’re called names if you don’t agree, so why are people getting their britches in a twist, it’s all good, right?

Have you ever worked with a couple in a relationship? It can be a nightmare if one or both of them is having a bad day or upset with one another. Especially if they are in leadership roles. This isn’t about policing what they do in the bedroom, this is about making sure all the OTHER people who have to work on the show have a decent working environment, which is ABC’s responsibility. Many, many companies have rules about co-worker relationships for this reason. I feel bad for the staff having to endure this drama.

Seems like TJ is the whore of GMA. Don’t know why anyone would want to be involved, let alone, married to him.

Why do these viewers like this mess!!! Amy giggling and wiggling in her chair like a teenager, not like a woman with dignity and professionalism!!! When discussing the weekend, she looked so stupid, grinning, twisting around in her chair!!!! Just not thinking that her children might see this!!!! Absurd!!!

I am definitely a fan of TJ Holmes and have been since his days on CNN! I was so happy when he went to ABC! He’s funny and professional and such a great dresser! I have been a fan of GMA, ABC News, Nightline, all things ABC and was a fan of the ABC soaps until they went off the air. I will no longer watch the 3rd hour unless they bring TJ back. I don’t believe the personal lives of TJ and Amy should have any bearing on GMA3 as long as they stay professionally engaged and are doing… Read more »

Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes OUT at ABC and ‘GMA3’

It’s not ending well for Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes. The former GMA3 co-hosts, who had their affair come to light publicly, have been let go by ABC after a lengthy mediation session on Thursday.

Now, the network has severed all ties with Robach and Holmes and they will receive payouts of their contracts.

According to TMZ: the long mediation session was “extremely contentious,” with ABC reps accusing both Amy and T.J. of various forms of misconduct, which one source characterized as “a witch hunt.”

They go on detail that Amy and T.J were told that they did not handle their romance appropriately by waiting too long to disclose it to ABC executives.

ABC expressed that their “behavior on set” was “uncomfortable” for some ABC staff.

Page Six is also reporting that their source shared from the talks, that unless ABC reaches a satisfactory departure agreement with both Amy and T.J., they would both be looking at filing lawsuits against the network.

In additional accusations, ABC said alcohol had been found in Robach’s dressing room.  However, that was disputed as ABC executives had gifted liquor bottles to Robach and other on-air ABC talent. Robach was also accused of showing up “drunk” to work after attending the College Football National Championship last year.  Amy claims she was just tired.

So, what do you think of Robach and Holmes being given the hook by ABC and being show the front door? Comment below.

Alec Baldwin to Face Involuntary Manslaughter Charges in ‘Rust’ Shooting of Halyna Hutchins

Charges were announced today by Santa Fe District Attorney, Mary Carmack-Altwies in the shooting on the set of the film, Rust fatally killing director Halyna Hutchins.

Alec Baldwin (ex-The Doctor and Knots Landing) has been charged with involuntary manslaughter along with the film’s armorer,  Hannah Gutierrez Reed.

The D.A. outlined why the deadly on-set shooting could result in criminal charges regardless of whether it was an accident.  In a statement, she shared: “After a thorough review of the evidence and the laws of the state of New Mexico, I have determined that there is sufficient evidence to file criminal charges against Alec Baldwin and other members of the Rust film crew. On my watch, no one is above the law, and everyone deserves justice.

In charges set to be filed by the end of January, Baldwin and Gutierrez-Reed will each be charged with two counts of involuntary manslaughter in Hutchins’ death.

Baldwin’s attorney, Luke Nikas, said this about the charges: “This decision distorts Halyna Hutchins’ tragic death and represents a terrible miscarriage of justice. Mr. Baldwin had no reason to believe there was a live bullet in the gun – or anywhere on the movie set. He relied on the professionals with whom he worked, who assured him the gun did not have live rounds. We will fight these charges, and we will win.”

Andrea Reeb, the special prosecutor for the case said: “If any one of these three people: Alec Baldwin, Hannah Gutierrez Reed, or David Halls (assistant director, Rust) had done their job, Halyna Hutchins would be alive today. It’s that simple.  The evidence clearly shows a pattern of criminal disregard for safety on the ‘Rust’ film set. In New Mexico, there is no room for film sets that don’t take our state’s commitment to gun safety and public safety seriously.”

What do you think about the charges levied on Alec Baldwin? Comment below.
