In a recent emotional episode of their podcast “Amy & T.J.,” former “Good Morning America” co-anchors Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes candidly discussed the impact of their relationship on their careers and personal lives. Robach, aged 50, tearfully expressed her commitment to Holmes, stating, “Love sometimes is a choice, when it’s hard, it’s not just a feeling. Lust is a feeling, but love is a choice I believe, and I have chosen to love you.” This declaration came amidst a conversation about the intense pressure they faced following the public revelation of their relationship and the consequent loss of their TV careers.
Robach emphasized that her decision to be with Holmes was not influenced by public pressure but by her feelings and the professional challenges they faced together. She stated, “I don’t feel the pressure from the public to stay with you, but I feel the pressure of our careers that I believe were unfairly taken from us.” The couple reflected on their desire to continue working together and the personal devastation they would feel if their relationship were to falter.
Their podcast, launched on December 5, a year after they were put on hiatus by ABC News President Kim Goodwin, marks a significant milestone in their journey. It provides a platform for them to share their story in their own words, including the good and bad that comes with losing their careers and building a life together. In the podcast, Robach mentioned, “December 5th last year, exactly one year ago today, was the day we were told not to come into work,” highlighting the pivotal moment in their professional lives.
This episode sheds light on the couple’s ongoing struggle to balance their personal relationship with the fallout from their professional lives. Despite the challenges, Robach’s words make it clear that she has made a conscious decision to love and support Holmes through these turbulent times.
