AceShowbiz - Amy Robach was perhaps as surprised as anyone else when reports broke of T.J. Holmes' alleged office affairs before he's with her. The "20/20" co-anchor reportedly felt "blindsided" by her boyfriend's past relationships with other co-workers.
"She had no idea the scope of TJ's alleged past office romances," a source told The Sun of Amy, who had split from her husband Andrew Shue last August before her romance with T.J. was exposed to public in November 2022.
"She certainly did not foresee that their relationship was going to cause major upheaval - outside of her own marriage. She did not expect this to blow up into a scandal," the source dished, adding that the mother of two feels like she's "collateral damage" in the scandal.
Amy and T.J. have been pulled off air since news of their relationship blew up amid ABC's internal investigation into the matter. The so-called insider believes the network's investigation "will look into Amy's past to try to find some scandal, but fortunately for her, she is fairly well-behaved."
Page Six begged to differ though. Citing its own source, the site says Amy was not "blindsided," at least by T.J.'s relationship with producer Natasha Singh. According to the informant, the former CNN anchor was "up front" with Amy about his former relationships.
Prior to starting a relationship with Amy, T.J. was accused of cheating on his wife Marilee Fiebig with married "Good Morning America" producer Natasha starting in 2016. Recently, it's also revealed that he had a sexual relationship with script coordinator Jasmin Pettaway, who was 24 years old, in 2015.
T.J. has not responded to the latest affair claims, but his estranged wife Marilee has shared a cryptic post about "worried" children in light of the scandal. She reposted a Story from Save the Children which read, "What to do when… a child is worried."
"Children may not share all their concerns because they do not want to upset you," the infographic read. Subsequent slides gave various tips on how to talk to them, including "take the time to listen to them" and "reassure your child that feelings and thoughts make sense."
T.J. and Marilee share a 10-year-old daughter, Sabine.
