T.J. Holmes joked about giving his estranged wife, Marilee Fiebig, “plenty of reasons, excuses, and opportunities” to leave their marriage years ahead of his and Amy Robach’s alleged affair.
In March 2020, Holmes posted a 10th anniversary tribute to the immigration lawyer, which has gone viral amid news of his alleged romance.
“10 years ago, Marilee Fiebig married me,” the former CNN anchor, 45, captioned throwback wedding photos at the time. “And despite my best efforts, she remained married to me the past 10 years.
“That’s not hyperbole. I’m not being dramatic,” he continued. “I gave her plenty of reasons, excuses, and opportunities to walk her fine ass out the doooooooor.”
The Daytime Emmy nominee, who shares daughter Sabine, 9, with Fiebig, went on to praise the attorney’s “built-in black woman superpower” in showing him “grace and patience that’s incomprehensible.”
Holmes added that “asking her for another 10 years would be asking too much,” calling 10 months “a stretch” and 10 weeks “lucky.”
He referred to himself as Fiebig’s “decade challenge,” concluding, “If she puts up with me another 10 days, I’d be grateful.”ORDER A COPY OF ROB’S NEW BEST SELLING BOOK!
