While ABC executives are reportedly sorry that they may have to cut ties with an “up-and-coming talent” like T.J. Holmes, they have to be concerned about reports that keep rolling in about his alleged extramarital affairs with network colleagues, including two young women who were his subordinates.
The latest report comes from Page Six, which says that Holmes, suspended from his anchoring duties on “GMA3” because of his affair with co-host Amy Robach, had a second sexual relationship with a junior female colleague who was in her 20s.
This alleged affair occurred in 2015 — the same year that a then-married Holmes also had a months-long affair with a 24-year-old intern. This intern, who was 13 years his junior, was reportedly was left “feeling uncomfortable and used” after she initially reached out to Holmes as a prospective mentor.

Some of Holmes’ alleged sexual encounters occurred while at work — specifically in his office — which may offer another reason why production staffers were not fond of working with him, according to Page Six. While Holmes received “glowing reviews” from executives for his charm, versatility and skills on the air and as a producer, he was known to be “a terror” around subordinates, Page Six said.
“He terrorizes the staff,” one source told Page Six. “They hate him. He yells at producers, snaps at people and people don’t want to work with him.”
Another source told Page Six that Holmes could be “snooty” and “nasty” while another said that he had a reputation for being arrogant and difficult “long before his scandal erupted.”
