Insiders say ABC News anchors are disgusted about the negative attention Amy Robach and TJ Holmes’s shameful affair has brought to the network. Reportedly, Amy’s 20/20 co-anchor David Muir is appalled with their action and wants no part of the ongoing drama.
You may think David being Amy’s former anchor has something to say about the ongoing drama, but David is not someone that shares even his private issues publicly. So he has no interest in being part of the discussion but focuses on his work and heads back home. The dude avoids Amy Robach as he has never met her.
Management of ABC News warned that employees keep mute on the relationship till it blows over, but the culprit themselves took to air to make fun of the dreadful situation they were in, which later brought about the whole public uproar.
Page Six reports;
Strong opinions inside ABC News over “GMA3” hosts Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes’ off-screen affair have gone primetime.
As network execs mull over the anchors’ fate amid their scandalous romance, sources tell Page Six that Robach’s “20/20” co-anchor David Muir “wants no part” of the drama.
“He’s not having it. He’s the face of the evening news and nothing about him ever makes it into the papers. He’s very private and no one at ABC likes the way Amy and T.J. handled it,” a source told Page Six.
According to another insider, “every anchor is upset that Amy and T.J. have caused such drama.”
“No one wants to be associated with this, and Amy and David already aren’t that close right now,” they said.
An ABC News spokesperson told us of the “World News Tonight with David Muir” anchor, “David is focused on the work, not any of this,” when we reached out for comment.
The network’s initial response was to ignore it, but Holmes and Robach didn’t follow orders and joked on-air about having a “great week” after their affair was exposed.
Multiple sources told us people at the network are “very unhappy” with the comment. “If the decision is to not address it, then don’t address it! T.J. made light of it on-air. Amy’s smarter than that, but how else is she supposed to respond?” the first source said.
We hear Robach also isn’t a fan of all of the attention the affair is getting, especially after she fought so hard to become co-anchor of “20/20.”
“She’s a serious hard news journalist, and this is a major distraction,” one TV insider noted.
“Becoming co-anchor of ’20/20′ was very important to her. She was obsessed with getting that job. This affair is bringing her down and changing her reputation,” they added.
Everyone will be upset when two vile adults decide to be a**holes and turn their entire workspace into a public mockery.
