Ex-ABC “Good Morning America” news anchors Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes are allegedly registered to run in the upcoming New York City marathon this Sunday.
The two, who had previously run in the race in November last year, could run anonymously because their names are not among the celebrities who are scheduled to take part.
Holmes and Robach’s love affair first broke out last November, weeks after they took to the tracks in last year’s edition of the race, which Robach noted she pressured him to do.
Read on for more details.
T.J. Holmes & Amy Robach Could Run The NYC Half Marathon
According to Page Six, the former “GMA3” co-hosts are getting ready to run in the upcoming New York City half marathon. A source confirmed to the news outlet that Robach, 50, and Holmes, 45, will be among the 25,000 runners competing in the race on Sunday.
When they participated last year, just before the news of their affair broke out, Robach noted that she put the two of them on a structured training plan in a bid to accommodate their workouts with their busy schedules and family lives.
“We chose a ‘Hal Higdon training schedule,’ and stuck with it for the past few months,” Robach said at the time. “I print mine out and tape it up on my kitchen wall and check off each run.”
She continued, “It feels good to have a schedule and prioritize the training — that way I was able to work the rest of my work/family life around our runs. It wasn’t difficult at all, and I find that my favorite part of running a race is the training because we make it social and fun.”
They Attended Their First Official Event As A Couple
Robach and Holmes were seen attending an event together for the first time since the news of their off-screen relationship got confirmed. According to Page Six, the couple attended the memorial service of the late Howard Bragman hand-in-hand, leaving fellow attendees spellbound.
“I couldn’t believe it was them! I didn’t even know they were in L.A.,” a source who was present at the event told the news outlet.
They added, “[Robach and Holmes] looked like… they weren’t inappropriate, but she was in this wrap dress that was very short, and they just looked like this hot couple. There was no shame in their game.”
They reportedly arrived at the service 10 – 15 minutes before time, with a source revealing that “they seemed extremely happy and greeted everyone with warm smiles. They were extremely friendly with everyone.”
Amy Robach & T.J. Holmes Have Been Tipped To Start Their Show
After ABC News concluded its investigation into their affair, which reportedly started when they were training for a half marathon in March last year, Robach and Holmes were laid off and have been out of work since then.
According to TMZ, TV personality and radio host, Billy Bush shared that the two of them have a good relationship and suggested that they work on launching their show.
“I think they should work together,” Bush told the news outlet. “I think they do a great job.”
The “Extra” host, 51, suggested that the couple could host a podcast together or any other kind of show, saying, “They’ve got something that works.”
Bush was also in Robach and Holmes’ shoes back in 2016 after NBC booted him off “Today” following a video and audio of him laughing while ex-president Donald Trump bragged about groping women.
The two are allegedly getting ready to resume their careers and are developing a show together that could rival Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos’ live show format.
Fans Want Amy Robach & T.J. Holmes Back For Hosting Duties
During the recently held Oscars red carpet, which Whit Johnson and Lindsey Davis hosted, viewers expressed their preference for Robach and Holmes to host the ceremony coverage.
According to The Sun, Johnson and Davis’ performance as hosts of a broadcast on Hollywood’s biggest night received a lukewarm response, with Johnson acknowledging he was a “total rookie.”
Several fans took to social media to express their desire for Robach and Holmes to return.
A fan wrote, “It was a lot better when you had TJ and Amy.” “I miss TJ and Amy!” another shared.
