AceShowbiz - Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes appear to be unfazed by their jobless status. The pair continue to be inseparable and in good mood despite their exit from ABC News following their affair scandal.
On Friday, January 27, just hours after the network officially announced their departures, the two former "Good Morning America" co-anchors were seen packing on the PDA. Amy jumped into T.J.'s arms and wrapped her legs around his waist on the sidewalk in Los Angeles.
T.J. was all smiles as he welcomed Amy in his embrace. The lovebirds were also seen hugging and holding hands.
For the outing, Amy looked effortlessly stylish in a white plunging T-shirt underneath a gray cardigan and white pants, teamed with brown sandals. She carried a black sling bag and had her blonde hair styled in a neat and simple updo.
Her boyfriend, meanwhile, opted for a casual look in a black hoodie and dark jeans. He completed his look with a pair of black shoes as the pair wore sunglasses.
Hours before their affectionate display, Amy and T.J. were seen exercising separately. They exited the same house within minutes of each other, but opted to jog in opposite directions.
On the same day, ABC announced that Amy and T.J. are officially out of the network following a mediation session with the network executives. In a company-wide email sent Friday, ABC News President Kim Godwin told staffers, "I want to share with you that we've reached a decision about T.J. and Amy."
It then included a statement the network sent wide minutes later. "After several productive conversations with Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes about different options, we all agreed it's best for everyone that they move on from ABC News," the statement read. "We recognize their talent and commitment over the years and are thankful for their contributions."
Kim informed employees that a decision as to who will co-anchor "GMA3" and "20/20" will come at a later date. She concluded by saying, "I know that this has been a distraction for so many of us, but let's not forget all the great work that continues to make ABC News the #1 news network in America, and that's because of you. I want to thank you again for your patience and professionalism during this time."
Amy and T.J. reportedly came to an exit agreement after an extremely contentious mediation that went through the night Thursday into Friday morning. Both were given compensation packages, but the details are not disclosed.
