Last week, married to other people, co-anchors Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes were photographed looking like lovers. As the days went on, we found out they were indeed a couple.

That put ABC and Good Morning America in a predicament. Do they keep the budding couple on the air to keep their religious viewers happy? Or do they pull them to see how America will deal with their affair?

Today, after two days of them being on the air together, ABC News President Kim Godwin decided that they needed to take a break, and she told the staff in a phone call, according to TMZ.
Goodwin made the decision because it is a distraction both internally and externally. Then she added, “And so, I want to say that while that relationship is not a violation of company policy, I have really taken the last few days to think about and work through what I think is best for the ABC News organization.”

How did GMA3 handle it? They had their fill-ins, Stephanie Ramos and Gio Benitez, start the show off by saying the anchors have the “day off.” What they should’ve said, they have the day off to spend in bed. What? Too soon?

Goodwin is in a no-win situation. They are free to do what they want as adults, but if it hurts the show’s reputation, then it hurts the show’s future.

I had a friend, who worked as an ABC affiliate, he and his co-anchor, who were both married, had an affair with each other. When news of their affair got out there to the press, she was transferred, and they made his life hell for the rest of his contract with them. He was slated to be the lead anchor, but that never happened.

This was many moons ago, but I am sure ABC is discussing how they handled their affair.

And to say people at ABC didn’t know. That is BS. A newsroom is so full of gossip everyone knows all the juicy stuff, so everyone knew about Robach and Holmes’ affair. I worked in network news, and we all knew about the affair an anchor and his producer has. And both people are still there. Even though, in my opinion, they both suck at their jobs. Not because they sucked on each other.
