Former ABC anchors T.J. Holmes and Amy Robach may not be welcome at Disney parks after their extramarital affair and ensuing drama cost them their jobs at the network.
Holmes and Robach’s Affair and Dismissal from ABC
The two were formerly co-hosts on ABC’s GMA3, an afternoon news and information spin-off show related to Good Morning America. However, photos and headlines revealed that the couple was having an affair while working for the network, and the backlash included them no longer working for ABC.
Running and Disney Parks
In a recent episode of their podcast, Amy & T.J. Podcast, Matt James from The Bachelor talked about his love for running marathons and his interest in participating in the London Marathon and the Disney 5K with his girlfriend, Rachael Kirkconnell.
Holmes’ Comments about Disney Parks Ban
Holmes responded to James’ comments by saying, “We would love to run with you down at that 5K,” before adding, “I don’t think we’re allowed on the park’s grounds anymore.”
It’s unclear if Holmes was joking or if they are truly banned from the parks. The Walt Disney Company owns and operates the ABC broadcast network and other businesses, including theme parks worldwide, such as Disneyland in California and Disney World in Florida.
Holmes and Robach’s Love Story and Support System
During the podcast, Robach and Holmes discussed their love story and the support they received from friends and family during their difficult times. Holmes revealed that James was one of the first people to reach out to him after the news of their affair broke.
Holmes’ Dark Place and Wellness Check
Holmes shared that the affair drama brought him to a dark place, and Robach had to perform a wellness check on him with her dad after he stopped replying to her messages or calls for a while.
James’ Support for Holmes
James expressed his support for Holmes during his struggles, saying he was the first person Holmes went out with publicly after the affair became public. They went for a run together and got Mexican food at one point during Holmes’ struggles.
