Good morning scandal.
In a year of home demolitions and heartbreak, “GMA3” co-hosts TJ Holmes and Amy Robach are the latest celebrities to be accused of abandoning their spouses.
News broke in early December that the two balls were deep and months into a torrid extramarital affair. Recently, NBC announced their decision to take the couple off the air, saying their relationship is a source of “internal and external distraction.”
The lines between work and passion reportedly blurred when the two began training for the NYC Half Marathon in early 2022. Endorphins pumped, the sweet, rotten smell of the city at dawn hung in the air, and the sound of expensive sneakers on dirty sidewalk gave way to heart-pounding guessing and spiking libido. It’s a classic recipe for adultery, folks.
The two reportedly left their respective spouses in August and were spotted “smooching” (a word second only to “wet” as the least adorable in the English language) in New York.
After news of their affair broke, Robach’s divorce from Pisces husband Andrew Shue, who looks like Kennedy or the kind of actor who would play one, is finalized. The couple married in 2010 following their split from Tim McIntosh, the father of their two teenage daughters. For his part, Holmes was reportedly in the process of repairing his marriage to his wife Marilee Fiebig, an immigration attorney, when his romantic association with Robach began. Holmes and Fiebig, an immigration attorney, have weathered infidelities in the past but appeared to be on the road to reconciliation, celebrating his birthday together in the Bahamas in August. Sigh. The former couple share one child together, daughter Sabine.
Robach and Holmes’ situation is chaotic, human, obviously public and apparently a thorn in the side of their Sagittarius GMA colleague Robin Roberts Years. And to make matters worse, “GMA3” hosts Amy Robach and TJ Holmes have been taken off the air amid their bomb scandal scandal. What do the stars mean to these handsome, ill-behaved news anchors? Read on to find out more.
Opposites attract and fascinate
Born on August 19, 1977, TJ Holmes is a Leo Sun with a diplomatic Libra Moon, vulnerable Cancer Venus, and wobbling Gemini Mars. In contrast, Amy Robach, born February 6, 1973, is an Aquarius Sun with a squishy Pisces Moon, objective Aquarius Venus, and IDGAF Sagittarius Mars. In astrology, the Sun is our core identity and illuminates the path we are meant to follow towards self-realization.
As Leo and Aquarius, Holmes and Robach’s sun signs are polarities, meaning they sit directly opposite each other on the zodiac wheel. As the saying goes, opposites attract and polarities within a relationship indicate wild differences and deep intrigue. Of the two, Leo is the more assertive and romantic, willing to be big and bold when it comes to love. Aquarius is a little more reserved and emotionally objective, although Robach’s Mars, planet of will and action, is timely loving, shrugging consistency in Sagittarius suggesting she’s ready to clown and roll the dice when it comes down to it reckless sex goes.
Leos like Holmes stray when they feel their significant other has stopped worshiping at the altar of their greatness, when the incense dies down and the compliments fizzle, they tend to go out and seek oxygenation from someone else’s attention. Trust, inside every Leo there is a child star who needs to be sure of his worth, who has fed strawberry starbursts and told him that they are the sun itself.
Aquarians like Roebach make Leos like Holmes ambitious. Leos want the kind of cool, controlled, confident genius, subtle solitude that water bearers naturally possess. In terms of reciprocity, Leo encourages Aquarius to indulge in fun, and Aquarius reminds Leo that what they do is more important than how they are seen.
In astrology, the moon represents our instincts, emotional needs and how we address them. The news that TJ Holmes’ wife was surprised by the revelation of his affair speaks to his Libra Moon, which tends to avoid ugly truths and difficult confrontations. Reports that suggest Holmes has been back and forth with his wife also point to his hot and cold, indecisive, absolutely maddening Mars in Gemini. The beauty of a Libra Moon is the ability to sense when relationship dynamics are off track or equality is threatened. The failure of the Libra moons lies in their inability to directly address these differences and inequalities.
Robach’s moon is in muddy, escapist Pisces. With this lunar placement, there is a strong indication that Robach loves to fly high and anything that helps avoid reality. Often Pisces-Moon people seek escape/oblivion in drugs, alcohol and/or another person. There is a real need to dissolve and vanish with a Pisces moon as it is the natural habitat of love addicts and luses. Leo Suns like Holmes enjoy a Pisces Moon caressing them all day, comfortably ignoring their flaws. The Moon-Pisces will wrap the Leo in praise and specters, promises and deceit, as long as the Leo in question speaks softly and weeps easily.
What’s in the stars?
It’s always a bit tricky when a relationship begins in the frying pan of infidelity — it’s hot and it burns, and trust will likely always grow heavy in the scorched earth that follows. The story shows that it’s possible for love to flourish for a time after and within infidelity, considering Leann Rimes and Eddie Cibrian, Jessica Sklar and Jerry Seinfeld, Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott, and perhaps the most famous, tense, and fateful by all accounts, Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor. Not for nothing folks, these pairings are absolutely AWASH in water placements. Who’s to say if Holmes and Robach will sink or swim after the illegal’s allure has been replaced by the tense liberty of all the cards on the table. As a local romantic, I am addicted to love in all its torrid, myriad forms and hope that all parties, despised or scorned, find evolution and wholeness in their relationships.
