  3. It looks like some executives have a few more gray hairs. https://nypost.com/2022/12/01/amy-robach-and-t-j-holmes-alleged-affair-prompts-emergency-meetings-at-abc/ Robach's divorce will be finalized later this month. https://www.tmz.com/2022/12/01/tj-holmes-amy-robach-affair-rumor-good-morning-america-no-discipline/?adid=social-twa
