Marilee Fiebig, the ex-wife of Holmes, and Robach’s former husband Andrew Shue have grown close in the wake of their exes’ scandalous romance over the past year.
The unlikely couple have reportedly been dating for around six months, and bonded over the experience of seeing their marriages crumbling so publicly, when the scandalous affair was exposed by DailyMail.com in November 2022.
News of the relationship between the pair’s ex-spouses was first reported by the New York Post.
‘It turned into something else, and they’re connected over their values. It’s bigger than the affair now,’ a source said.

An insider has claimed that Fiebig and Shue’s dalliance is the real deal, and is ‘bigger’ than Robach and Holmes’ at a time when the ex-news anchor couple have also seemingly taken their relationship to the next level.
After seeing their marriages fall apart a year ago, the former flames of the GMA hosts apparently have ‘moved on.’
‘They’re not heartbroken and sad… everyone has moved on,’ the source added.
It comes after Holmes and Robach have relaunched their careers through new iHeartRadio podcast Amy & TJ, where they spent this week’s episode talking about the chaotic aftermath of the affair when they both lost their GMA gigs.
The couple were taken off the air on December 5 last year when their dalliance became public knowledge. Following the initial revelation, it emerged that TJ had relationships with other female staffers at ABC.
Amy said she was ‘shaking’ as she arrived at TJ’s apartment the first time their fling was exposed, and found him in a deep state of despair after turning to weed and alcohol to help him cope.
TJ said that the day the story was broken, he left work at 11:00am and proceeded to spend the rest of the day ‘pounding vodka’ and ‘taking too many edibles.’
When their extramarital fling was revealed, an inside source told DailyMail.com that they had been close for some time, and were ‘even socializing as a foursome with each other’s spouses.’
The couple’s affair was exposed a year ago, when they were first seen enjoying flirty post-GMA filming drinks at a bar in Times Square

The pair looked every inch the lovey-dovey couple once again days later on November 17, when Holmes met his co-star at NYU Langone Medical Center in New York after work
Weeks later, the couple were again snapped traveling back and forth between each other’s apartments in Manhattan
The pair have also dismissed claims they were not ‘adulterers’, and people did not get the full side of their story.
‘We lost the jobs we love because we love each other,’ Holmes said in the first episode.
‘To be clear, we were outed as being in a relationship, but everyone else thought we were being outed as adulterers — being outed as cheating on our spouses — and it wasn’t the case,’ he said.
For almost two years, Holmes and Robach became on-air favorites as they built an undeniable chemistry, and even gushed about their blossoming friendship.
But it was revealed that for the last six months of their stay on GMA, the married co-stars had been sharing more than a mutual love of running.
After leaving the GMA studios in Midtown Manhattan on November 10, the duo were seen enjoying flirty post-filming drinks at an Irish pub in Times Square.
When their rendezvous moved outside, they were seen standing roughly 20 feet apart in an apparent attempt not to be seen together – before hopping in the same uber towards Holmes’ apartment.
They were caught in the subsequent days and weeks taking cozy weekend trips upstate and sneaking back and forth between each other’s Manhattan homes.

Andrew Shue, an actor, saw his marriage to Robach fall apart in public fashion a year ago, but an insider claims his new relationship is ‘bigger’ than the one that broke up his marriage
Offering a glimpse inside the dramatic days after their relationship came to light, Robach said she found Robach in such an intoxicated state that she had to check he was ‘warm.’
On the day he drowned his sorrows in vodka and edibles, Robach recalled receiving a text from Robach saying, ‘I’m sorry. You were the love of my life. I’m so sorry. This has happened.’
Robach said his use of the past tense was concerning, and she shot back: ‘You’re scaring me. Please, tell me you’re okay.’
After he failed to pick up the phone, Amy said that she was then contacted by bosses at ABC who were also struggling to trying to get in contact with him.
The former ABC personality said that she was with her parents when she received those text messages and she relayed them which prompted her mother to burst into tears.
From there, Amy and her father jumped in an Uber and headed straight for TJ’s home. After insisting to his doorman that they be let up, she said that she found her lover ‘sprayed out’ on his bed.
‘I ran to you and I said: “TJ!” and you didn’t move and I remember it was the most awful thing having to touch your body to see if you were warm. I was so afraid. You were just incoherent.’
Despite his state, Amy said that she was relieved to know that he was still alive.
‘I knew you were alive. I knew you were gonna be okay. I stayed with you for a little bit. My dad stayed with me. He told me: “I was so afraid of what you were gonna find.”‘
TJ said that the experience was something the pair ‘need to’ and ‘will’ talk further about ‘down the road’.
