On Wednesday, sources told Page Six that the settlement's specifics remained secret. While they all received favorable deals, one insider noted the following:

“Amy’s been at ABC a lot longer and has a much bigger contract [than T.J.].”

Why She Might Have Gotten A Higher Paycheck

T.J. joined the network in 2014, but Amy has been there since 2012. While they shared many duties as co-hosts of GMA3, sources told the outlet that Amy also served as one of the hosts of 20/20, a position she "worked hard to get." She had to leave behind two important jobs, meaning she likely received a larger payout.

Did They Sign An NDA To Keep The Specifics Quiet?

According to Page six and other sources, the pair most likely received little to no additional compensation beyond what they would have been entitled to under the terms of their contracts going forward. However, they added,

“It’s possible they could have gotten paid slightly more to sign an NDA — and to keep the peace.”

Was It Worth It?

Even though it has been reported that the anchors are happy with their final payment from ABC, sources close to both are still perplexed and wonder if it was worth it.

Are They Still Together?

It seems they have kept the relationship going despite losing their jobs. On February 6, Robach turned 50, and Holmes was seen out purchasing expensive jewelry, including a ring from Tiffany & Co., probably as a gift for the occasion.
