Unemployed lovers and former “GMA3” co-hosts Amy Robach and TJ Holmes are banking on their romance to land them their next gig.
The couple is “aggressively pitching” their own show to the producers behind “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” according to an insider, who further claims that “they welcome the ongoing coverage” of their relationship.
“It’s easier for them to pitch a show if they stay in the news and they think they’re rock stars. They’re selling their chemistry,” the source said.
The pair’s chemistry was a huge hit on ABC before they got the boot.
Network executives constantly commented on how perfect they were together as on-air hosts, and “they fell into it,” says a source.
“They absolutely believe their chemistry would sell because it sold at ABC,” the insider said.
At ABC, however, the source warns, “They sold this brother/sister chemistry. Now they’re selling sex.”
A source close to Robach also confirmed that the duo is “pitching a show a la Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos” — because they’ll have to get back to work eventually.
“Whatever deal they got from ABC, they’re not going to uphold,” the insider said.
Meanwhile, Robach and Holmes are set for a “symbolic run” at Sunday’s United Airlines Half Marathon in New York City. We are told they will be part of the first wave of runners starting the race at
They ran the same race last year with Robach’s then-husband Andrew Shue.
It was Holmes’ first run, and reportedly around the time things started to get romantic between the two.
However, a source close to the couple told us back in November that that wasn’t the origin of their affair.
A rep for the couple did not get back to us.
