T.J. Holmes and Amy Robach got candid about the challenges they faced while stepping out of their marriages and making their love for each other public.

"We weren't exposed for being together, we were exposed, initially, for not actually living the lives we were portraying to the world," Robach, 51, shared in the latest episode of their podcast, Amy & T.J.

"Because we weren't living those lives we were showing everyone, we weren't able to actually expose our relationship."

"Between the two of us sitting on this stage, there are now four divorces," Holmes shared during the podcast. "We had very perfect-looking families and perfect-looking lives, and we were guilty at times of putting out an image of our lives that we knew were not true."

Robach recalled a specific instance from 2022 when she purposefully shared a pleasant moment with Shue on Instagram.

However, this was only because a friend had texted her to ask about the status of their marriage because she hadn't shared any family pictures in a while.

"I didn't want anyone to think anything was wrong, so I posted that picture," Robach explained. The problem is, everything was wrong. When I posted that picture, I was almost sure my marriage was over. But I didn't want anyone to know."

"I wanted my life to actually be what it looked like on Instagram so badly," Robach said.

Holmes made an even greater effort to hide the news that his marriage was on the verge of disaster.

Holmes claimed that he made sure to put on his wedding band especially for his on-air appearances and would take it off in his dressing room following the show.

"I didn't want anyone to know that I had another failed marriage," Holmes explained. "I wasn't ready for anyone to know that."

"Ironically, it all blew up in our face because we weren't transparent in what was actually happening in our relationships before this relationship started," Robach said. "So everything got completely blown out of proportion."
