Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes Blames Their Scandalous Affair On Getting DRUNK Everyday!
Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes’ claims their scandalous affair was fueled by alcohol.
According to Page Six, it was no secret that the former “Good Morning America 3” anchors shared a common fondness for booze. Insiders claimed that drinking at a bar after work brought the cozy co-anchors closer together.
Robach and Holmes were booted from the ABC show after they were outed as a couple. They had both been married for more than 10 years when they were exposed for cheating on their respective spouses.
A source explained that the morning hosts began hanging out after wrapping the ABC morning show and getting out of work.
The tipster claimed — “They’d have drinks all day after meetings.”
Holmes recently confirmed that he was drinking up to 18 drinks a day, last year. A source noted seeing the tipsy anchor at social events.
The pair opened up about leaning on alcohol after being ousted from “Good Morning America,” on the most recent episode of their iHeart podcast, “Amy & T.J.”
The lovers called their boozy year “an anomaly” after their relationship was exposed and they lost their TV jobs.
Robach described the situation, telling listeners — “That’s embarrassing to me, that’s not what I wish it were.”
She went on to blame her drinking habit on her unemployed status. Robach, 50, revealed that she was consuming “over 30 drinks a week,” but clarified that she wasn’t getting “drunk” or “wasted” on a daily basis. She described her state as “keeping a buzz going all day or keeping a heightened state of mind during an anxious year.”
The duo called their common running hobby as “runs to fun,” meaning putting in the miles only to end up drinking, either at a bar or at home, post-workout.
Holmes, 46, revealed that sometimes he was “two drinks in” by lunch.
“I didn’t have a job to go to and I was away from a lot of friends and family. We were laying low. So what did I do? I drank a lot,” Robach added. “A lot more than I ever have. I don’t think I have ever gone a full year where I drink every single day and that was 2023 for me.”
The couple added that they spent a jaw-dropping $2,689 on alcohol just for the month of December, not including occasional trips to their neighborhood liquor store.
Holmes and Robach shared on their podcast that they’re currently taking part in the “Dry January” campaign. They explained that they felt the need to open up about their own relationships with alcohol so they could encourage listeners to follow their lead.
