During an appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, King was asked about Robach and Holmes after they were pulled from hosting duties on the morning show following reports of their romance. “Oh gosh, of all the questions I was hoping you would not talk about,” she said, to which Cohen asked if she read about it and was glad that such drama didn’t follow her show.
“I look at the situation and I do say it’s very interesting what’s happening over there,” she continued. “It’s just gotten very messy and very sloppy, I do think that. Because in the beginning I actually thought good on Good Morning America, they’re saying that they’re not taking them off the air, two consenting adults. But then the more you read, it’s just very messy. … It’s a sad situation because you’ve got kids involved, you’ve got families involved and I keep thinking about that. I’m very concerned about that.”
The drama surrounding Holmes and Robach’s relationship was only disclosed after reports and photos of them holding hands surfaced online. Robach is still married to actor Andrew Shue, while Holmes is married to lawyer Marilee Fiebig. They’ve both reportedly separated from their respective partners, but it’s not clear when that happened.
While King thinks the situation is “messy” the couple have received support from fellow TV host Don Lemon. "I'll say this, I know T.J., I worked with T.J. at CNN, so I have nothing but love for him and I hope that he's OK," Lemon said earlier this week. "I don't know about their situation, I'm not privy enough, but I just like to offer people love and support and I hope that they're OK and hope that they continue to prosper."
