Robach and Holmes were fired in January 2023

With the romantic involvement between Robach and Holmes coming to light, the duo prompted a temporary removal from ABC News in December 2022. By January, the duo found themselves officially severed from the daytime talk show.

“After several productive conversations with Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes about different options, we all agreed it’s best for everyone that they move on from ABC News,” the company stated in an email to staff at the time.

Despite this professional detour, Robach and Holmes have since re-entered the working sphere, albeit at a more relaxed pace, with the launch of their podcast in December 2023.

Robach and Holmes have denied cheating rumors

The couple has used their platform to share their perspective on the controversial situation, persistently denying accusations of an affair despite both being legally married to different individuals at the onset of their relationship.

“To be clear, we were outed as being in a relationship, but everyone else thought we were being outed as adulterers — being outed as cheating on our spouses — and it wasn’t the case,” Holmes clarified on the first episode of their podcast. “We both at that point were in divorce proceedings.”

On a recent episode of the Amy & T.J. Podcast, airing on Tuesday, the former GMA3 co-hosts delved into the life lessons they’ve learned while reflecting on the past year, as per People.

“I learned that it’s — you’re gonna love this one — it’s better to fall into like, and then walk into love,” Robach said with a laugh, offering insights into how she “chose love after falling into like.”

“I couldn’t help how much I liked you. I just always liked being around you,” she expressed, referencing Holmes. In a playful exchange, Holmes added that she “stumbled into love,” prompting Robach to humorously admit that she still has “a few bruises” from the metaphorical fall.

Continuing their thoughtful discussion on the past year, Robach emphasized that “choosing love is always worth it.”
