T.J. Holmes is often recognized for his roles on GMA, GMA3, CNN, and BET, but his alleged affair overshadowed his career in December 2022 after news broke he is dating fellow co-host, Amy Robach. Now, as he plans his exit from the network, which has suspended him, more affairs are being brought to light.
Birthdate: Aug. 19, 1977
Education: Attended the University of Arkansas where he earned a degree in broadcast journalism.
Spouses: Amy Ferson, divorced in 2007

T.J. Holmes filed for divorce after his affair with Amy Robach went public.
Moving onto Holmes’ love life (as this is what most people are concerned with at the present), the former GMA3 co-host is married to Marilee Fiebig, who works as an immigration lawyer. The two tied the knot in 2010 and share a nine-year-old daughter.
While the couple may be married on paper (for now), an inside source told the DailyMail that they separated in August 2022, just two months after he and Robach reportedly became “lovers” during the time they were covering the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in June 2022. They are currently working out the terms of their divorce.
Ironically, inside sources also shared with the DailyMail that Robach and her husband, Andrew Shue, separated around the same time.
T.J. Holmes made headlines in December 2022 for his alleged affair with Amy Robach.
At the beginning of December 2022, Holmes’ name made multiple headlines over his alleged affair with Robach. After the DailyMail captured the two spending the weekend together and getting cozy at a New York City bar, the source published the photos and announced they were in a relationship.
Based on some of the photos that were taken, it appears the two weren’t exactly trying to hide their feelings for each other from the cameras.
In addition to calling Holmes out for his alleged affair, the former GMA3 co-host also received backlash for an old Instagram post from 2020. In it, Holmes appears to be acknowledging his wife of 10 years of marriage, though his tone is less of a romantic one.
Part of Holmes’ message read, “10 years ago, Marilee Fiebig married me. And despite my best efforts, she remained married to me for the past 10 years. That's not hyperbole. I'm not being dramatic. I gave her plenty of reasons, excuses, and opportunities to walk her fine a-- out the doooooooor.”
After media outlets broke the news on the affair, Holmes took down his Twitter account and Robach deactivated her Instagram page.
T.J. Holmes' affair with Robach may have cost him his job.
After Holmes' affair was broadcasted on nearly every media outlet, ABC was left with no choice but to suspend him and Robach. Unfortunately for them, it doesn't appear they will be rejoining together on the set of GMA3. On Jan. 20, 2023, The U.S. Sun reported that the pair are "unofficially out of GMA3." A source familiar with the matter shared with the media outlet that the two were working with ABC executives and their attorneys to hash out the terms of an exit package.
The source added, "ABC is going to pay a lot of money to make everyone happy and go away very, very quietly."
