Losing her worldly possessions
In their most recent podcast episode, Amy Robach and her current partner, former “GMA3” colleague T. J. Holmes, reflected on the lessons learned in 2023.
Robach emphasized the value of choosing love, stating, “It’s always worth it.” Holmes shared his perspective, saying, “There were friendships lost in 2023 that can never be reclaimed.” Following headlines in 2022, Robach and Holmes departed from ABC. Speculation arose from photos suggesting a romantic involvement between the journalists and former co-anchors while still legally married to others. Both Robach and Holmes denied allegations of infidelity, clarifying they were undergoing divorces when the photos initially surfaced.
“In 2023, I discovered that despite losing one’s job, reputation, friends, and most worldly possessions, happiness remains attainable,” remarked Robach. Her statement prompted laughter from Holmes, who inquired, “You lost most of your worldly possessions?”
“I did,” confirmed Robach. “There was considerable selling and giving away involved.” Robach and Shue exchanged vows in 2010 and allegedly separated in August 2022, marking their second marriage for both parties.
