Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes became the news.
The GMA 3 co-anchors were photographed getting cozy in a report from The Daily Mail, sending tongues wagging around the world. Now, the pair have been taken off air temporarily, raising a lot of questions about their present status and future on GMA.
An insider told PEOPLE of the pair, “They joked how good their chemistry was, but they shut it down and made it clear they were each going through their own stuff and there was nothing between them. She and T.J. just did things together all the time. Her daughter babysat for his daughter. They were open about it. Their lives were intertwined because of work and they were best friends, so when their marriages ended, he was there for her and it was a very natural transition.”
Still, another insider noted, “There were rumors they were having an affair about a year ago. A lot of people believed there might have been some truth to it, because you can see there’s a mutual affection there. But everyone ultimately chalked it up to friendship because they always said they were both happily married.”
