Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes Temporarily Taken Off ‘GMA3’ As Network Figures Out Plan Of Action

Photo: ABC

Due to the firestorm surrounding GMA3 anchors, Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes, ABC announced on Monday morning via an editorial call that the two have been benched and are for now being taken off the show.

The move was announced by ABC News president, Kim Godwin.  This comes on the heels of the Daily Mail revealing a personal and romantic relationship between the two anchors.

According to reports, their relationship surprised many at ABC News, while others were suspicious for a long time. Both Holmes and Robach are married, though they have each separated from their partners.  Robach had been married to former Melrose Place star, Andrew Shue.

On the call this morning, Godwin shared: “I want to say that while the relationship is not a violation of company policy, I really have taken the last few days to think about and work through what I think is best for the ABC organization. These decisions are not easy, they are not knee jerk, but they are necessary for the brand and for our priority which, you guys know, are all of is … the people here at ABC.”

Last week when the story surfaced, Robach and Holmes anchored GMA3 and did not address the situation on- air.  However, Godwin is noting that a some kind of more formal action could be taken since the network was blindsided by the unexpected reveal of their relationship.

Look for Gio Benitez and Stephanie Ramos to take over the third hour of GMA for now.  The Hollywood Reporter first reported this portion of the story.

What do you think about ABC’s action to take Robach and Holmes off the GMA3 for now? Comment below.

I don’t feel they should lose their jobs, but do agree with what others have observed about their on camera behavior being a bit of a distraction.They both were making remarks in response to general discussions on the show, TJ especially, that the viewer knew referred to issues resulting from their off camera relationship. Perhaps they need to be reassigned to other positions in the network, or remove one of them from the show.I believe that Amy was there first & TJ joined shortly afterwards. I am not judging them; it’s an extremely sensitive subject since there are spouses &… Read more »

The network is hurting them selfs they said they were consenting adults on same level.Then they take them off for what? If they had visited some rules that should have been stated clearly from a contract specified area.So I hope they leave the network and can get a better job.The network can just put them back on with an on air apology from the network president.and complete back Pau a raise would be great.

Having affairs on their married spouse?? That’s the problem.they lied about it also when confronted. I guess robin doesn’t want him on gma anymore.

They were wonderful along with Dr. Jen, a shame such a great show with such a great dynamic is hindered like this–but yes, they could have been more graceful in their personal choices and the timing, surely. I bet TJ and Amy will resurface elsewhere and maybe together on air.

Adding that I noticed on today’s show they were still announced as hosts, and that the guest hosts announced they were off today. And Dr. Jen was there. The network has not closed the door on them; I am wondering if TJ and Amy make a public statement if that will be sufficient for them to be “reinstated.” I hope it will.

I think this is ridiculous! Who the H are any of us to judge this? Does it effect their on-air job performances? I haven’t seen it if it has. Their personal lives didn’t need to be blown up by the gossips. That was just “mean, mean, mean,” in the words of Susan Banks (DAYS). This “benching” is just further validating the power of gossips. Shame on ABC for allowing that.
I’m not advocating having affairs, but that should be between them and their spouses to work out, not the rest of America.

It seems most shows that fill this time slot (at least on the West coast) are doomed in one way or another. THE CHEW lasted a while but I can’t help wondering if anyone regrets removing ALL MY CHILDREN or OLTL from the lineup. Constantly creating and promoting new shows has to be costly…was it really worth dismantling decades-old legacy shows for pop culture fixes?

ABC’s plan of action should be to cancel GMA3 which is not a good intro to GH with its 1.5M viewers. GH has 2.3M viewers and should have a better ratings lead-in. Anyone remember OLTL and AMC. Both had 3M viewers when they were cancelled.

They are the reason I watch. Yes they have chemistry which is what made it enjoyable to watch. What they do in their personal lives should be their business and they should not be punished so long as they can stay professional while on the show!!!

Amy is the best with doc Jen. I will not watch 3rd hour now- bring her back! So what if they are in a relationship? Amy was there before TJ, so, reassign him to another hour.

TJ and Amy having an affair does not affect my life in any way. They are excellent reporters and that’s what should matter to the station. If they loose their jobs with ABC, that would be the crime.

Love TJ especially on Gma imo it’s a private thing. They should not lose their jobs over this. Ridiculous.

Well I think it’s ridiculous to not have Amy or TJ on together, what difference does it make if they care about each other. Look how many presidents have had affairs etc. and many stars have affairs. I; think they do a great job on the show. Keep them together. They laugh, and communicate well. They make you laugh and smile. How am any people that work for channel 9 have had affairs. Hope you keep them together. Life is too short for all this shit !!!!!!!!!

These people making such a big deal over two grown, consenting adults! No one was sexually harassed or intimidated. The viewers have nothing to do with their personal lives. Can you imagine the stuff that goes on with all the romancing done on the Soaps. I wouldn’t be surprised how many couples get into trouble, maybe having affairs due to the close contact on set.

Mine your own business, they are over twenty one , they owe no one a explanation if they are both single. If not that is who they have to answer to, not some intern,s, family, friends or a employer. Now if there was something there contact of no messing around with other employees, well that would be a legal mater. There is a enough stuff in this world going on right now to keep all people occupied. People like to start shit and stir the pot, to those people get another hobby, you have to much time on your hands,… Read more »

They did not commit a crime. We may not like what they did, but they are consenting adults. I feel for the spouses and children, but they will have to deal with it. MSNBC kept Joe and Meka. Who are we to judge? Bring them back.

If abc takes them off the air . I will quit watching. When they added Tj the show was much better and him and Amy have a great chemistry on the air. They are grown adults and they do in their personal life should not be anyones business.

They continue to do a good job. Falling in love is not a crime. They fall in love on the right time when both marriages are no longer working. It’s not that they break each others family, they’re former families is already broken. Let them do their job and maybe, ABC will get a more higher rating. If ABC gets rid of this two, expect a lawsuit!!!!!!

It spiraled out of control. They should have not hid the fact they were involved. If they were open and explained to the public what was going on in each of their marriages. People would have been more accepting of the affair. The perception is they cheated on their partners. That is why people are having a difficult time with all of this.

I don’t think this was a surprise .you could tell they were a item. Not news happens all the time. My opinion is if there is anything in their contract about a situation like this could be a reason to be terminated then let them go. Otherwise just either let them have the show or offer them other programs.

Too many people have too much to say about other people and how they live their lives. Live your life I’m certain there’s more than enough drama there for you to manage. Taking jobs away because people don’t think and live the way you want is ridiculous. Their role does not impact anyones life or lively hood. Do you.

They are in the public’s eye reporting news.They are NOT in the public’s reporting their private lives. They both are very good at what they do professionally so let them do it. What is meant to be is meant to be. They don’t deserve to loose their jobs.

It’s odd that some people pay a price for their actions while others like Jennifer Lopez, Ben Affleck, Kaley Cuoco, Justin Hartley, and others make a mockery of marriage by falling into “real love” every six months with whoever and are still in good favor with the media. I wonder who decides these things.

It’s ridiculous to take them off the air. They had already sorted their private lives by leaving their current spouse. It was already taken care of. It actually would be interesting like the show she said he said. Besides I can bet you anything I’m sure they are not the only ones having an affair within the Network. I think who ever decided to let them go where being hypocrites.

Let it go! Bring them back they are the best thing to happen to GMA 3. The show won’t make it without them. Stay out of their personal life it’s theirs and nobody else’s business.

I think their actions with each other on air are deplorable.
It’s like rubbing salt in the wounds of their spouses!
TJ, it’s a pattern with him, too good for his britches, re assign them both to other areas so we, the Public don’t have to look at the Cheaters! Blatant, right in front of your noses!
They don’t deserve their jobs, no Morals at all.

I like them on the show. I watch the show because of them. I don’t care what they do in their personal lives. Not my business. Please bring them back.

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.
