ABC isn’t looking for replacements for TJ Holmes and Amy Robach
ABC hasn’t eyed possible replacements for TJ Holmes and Amy Robach yet, despite speculation the ‘GMA3’ hosts are on their way out… TMZ has learned.
Sources on the network tell us the honchos’ primary focus is still on completing a full investigation into whether or not TJ and Amy’s relationship violated company protocols. They are also investigating additional reports of affairs Holmes may have had while employed at GMA – including one with an intern – and possible problems there.
While some reports have speculated that DeMarco Morgan – who was at the GMA 3 desk during TJ and Amy’s vacation – has already been tapped to permanently fill Holmes’ place, our network sources say that simply isn’t the case, and he is not currently “tested” to assume the position.
The same goes for Rhiannon Ally, Gio Benitez and Stephanie Ramos – all of whom have manned the show’s presenter’s desk in Amy and TJ’s absence.
We’re told if and when ABC will attempt to fill positions after the investigation is fully completed and the fates of Amy and TJ are decided.
TMZ surfaced the story… Both TJ and Amy have been teaming up legal counsel — Amy with Andrew Brettler and Holmes with Eric George — over the past few weeks in a possible legal action against ABC.
We’re told that if the presenters are shown the door, their lawyers are ready to file a lawsuit and address the issue of race – asking the network: “Has ABC ever used the morality or conduct clause to fire two consenting adults.” or to discipline equally if both were white?”
Of course, we’ve seen TJ and Amy go and live their lives as a couple since they were pulled out of thin air … spending the holidays together and even hanging out the day before he filed for divorce from his estranged wife.
