The October footage shows Witherspoon asking Robach, George Stephanopoulos, and Michael Strahan if they enjoy her and Jennifer Aniston’s “Morning Show,” to which the journalists all responded positively.
Naturally, we do. “We’re obsessed,” claimed 61-year-old Stephanopoulos at the time, while 49-year-old Robach concurred, “We adore it.”
“You have no idea, the water cooler talks around here,” Strahan, 51, chipped in.
In an October interview with Reese Witherspoon, Amy Robach made light of “GMA” drama.
At the time, Witherspoon, 46, exclaimed, “Yes, email me, girl.” “Email me.”
Robach and Holmes, both 45 years old, made headlines the following month for reportedly engaging in a months-long romance while married to Andrew Shue and Marilee Fiebig, respectively.
Robach assured Witherspoon that “The Morning Show” will receive “a couple more plotlines.”
Shue, 55, is reportedly close to concluding his 12-year divorce from his wife. Fiebig, for her part, was “blindsided” by the alleged affair, according to a Friday article from Page Six.
While the “GMA3” co-hosts appeared on the broadcast last week despite rumors of their alleged affair and joked sarcastically about their “wonderful week,” Stephanie Ramos and Gio Benitez briefly replaced the ABC celebrities on Monday.
Monday, ABC News president Kim Godwin allegedly informed staff members on an internal call that the network saw Robach and Holmes as a “distraction.”
“After much consideration, I’ve decided to take Amy and T.J. off the air while we work this out,” Godwin allegedly said, adding that their apparent connection did not violate company rules.
Multiple sources told Page Six on the same day that Holmes had allegedly strayed with many other women at ABC.
Page Six has repeatedly requested comment from the Daytime Emmy candidate and Robach’s representatives, but neither has responded.
