T.J. Holmes’ estranged wife, Marilee Fiebig, ditches wedding ring after ABC drama
“T.J. Holmes’ ex” has a nice ring to it.
Marilee Fiebig decided to ditch the wedding band that tied her to her estranged husband in her first public sighting since the alleged serial cheater’s high-profile termination from ABC.
Fiebig, 45, was seen walking through New York City Thursday evening carrying a large bouquet of red roses, according to photos obtained exclusively by Page Six.
For the outing, the immigration attorney sported a white turtleneck beneath a long, black coat, which she paired with matching slacks and boots.
Her dark, curly hair flowed in the wind as she flashed the camera a sweet smile.
Holmes, 45 — who is still dating his also-ousted “GMA3” co-anchor, Amy Robach — filed for divorce from second wife Fiebig on Dec. 28, 2022, less than a month after the journalists’ affair made headlines.
The colleagues-turned-lovers were ultimately branded “distractions” and given the pink slip last Friday.
Though Fiebig — who shares 10-year-old daughter Sabine with Holmes — was apparently “blindsided” by the news of the workplace romance, we’re told it was “a pretty open secret” among the “Good Morning America” family.
Then during the network’s investigation into the nature of Holmes and Robach’s relationship, it was reported that he had allegedly had romances with three other employees, including married producer Natasha Singh, script coordinator Jasmin Pettaway — whom Holmes allegedly had sex with in his office — and another junior staffer we chose not to name.
“On the air and in person, he would say things like, ‘I love love’ and ‘I just love when people get married’ and ‘I’m taking the day off ’cause it’s my wife’s birthday,’” Holmes’ former co-worker recently told Page Six.
“At the time, I was like, ‘Oh, how sweet.’ But now looking back, you realize it was overcompensating for transgressions potentially.”
Holmes also posted a cringe-worthy 10th-anniversary tribute to Fiebig in March 2020, admitting that he had given her “plenty of reasons” to leave him throughout their marriage, which lasted almost 13 years.
Robach, 49, was also married when her entanglement with Holmes allegedly began while they were training together for the March 2022 NYC Half Marathon.
However, an insider told us in early December that her divorce from Andrew Shue is “almost finalized,” as the “Melrose Place” alum, 55, “moved out” last summer.
“Real Housewives of Miami” star Guerdy Abraira is happy to report that Martina Navratilova is “doing great” one month after the tennis legend revealed her cancer diagnosis.
“It’s looking very, very positive,” Abraira, 45, says on Page Six’s “Virtual Reali-Tea” podcast.
“And it’s on the preventative side, when they found out, it’s early. And we [pray] and that’s it. We’re keeping our head down and [hoping] for the best for her.”
The esteemed event planner — who appears on “RHOM” alongside Navratilova’s wife, Julia Lemigova — notes that the ladies are staying positive despite the health scare.
“I spoke to [Lemigova] as soon as it happened. We were supposed to get together for my birthday, but obviously she had to take care of some things medically for Martina,” she says.
“They’re in great spirits, that’s the good news.”
Navratilova announced on Jan. 2 that she is battling both throat cancer and breast cancer. She began treatment shortly after.
“This double whammy is serious but still fixable, and I’m hoping for a favorable outcome,” the 18-time Grand Slam singles champion said in a statement to the Women’s Tennis Association. “It’s going to stink for a while, but I’ll fight with all I have got.”
That same day, Lemigova, 50, shared a touching Instagram post, expressing gratitude to those keeping Navratilova in their thoughts as she fights the disease.
“Thank you to everyone who has reached out to share words of support,” the model wrote via Instagram, accompanied by photo of herself and the retired athlete, 66, with their dog.
“Together, we will fight this ♥️,” she added.
Navratilova explained that she first noticed an enlarged lymph node in her neck while attending the 2022 WTA Finals in Fort Worth, Texas, in November. A subsequent biopsy showed stage 1 throat cancer, and further testing led to the discovery of stage 1 breast cancer.
Navratilova previously had breast cancer in 2010 and underwent a lumpectomy.
Days before Navratilova revealed her latest diagnosis, a tender moment between herself and Lemigova aired on “Miami” — which Abriara feels was kismet.
“The beautiful thing about it is that it just so happened that [the diagnosis announcement] synchronized with that episode,” she says of the Dec. 29 installment.
Lemigova and Navratilova — who made history as the “Housewives” franchise’s first gay couple when “RHOM” was rebooted for Peacock in 2021 — shared a romantic kiss while taking a swim together during golden hour.
Running towards the sunset, Lemigova — clad in a flowing red dress — leapt off the dock of their oceanside manse and waited in the water to surprise her wife, who dove in just seconds later.
“That was so ‘White Lotus’ in the imagery of the last scene in that episode where Julia’s hiding in the water,” Abraira gushes of the cinematic sequence. “The best scene of the entire season to date right now is that, to me.”
The vocal LGBTQIA+ ally elaborates, “I’m like, this is, ‘Love is love.’ Love is love and this is a perfect example to show you how amazing that is, you know? I loved it!”
Prior that that scene, Lemigova openly discussed her and Navratilova’s marital challenges on this season of “RHOM.”
The spouses notably clashed over Lemigova’s empty nest syndrome, which came in full force after moving into a new home without her children. However, she and Navratilova ultimately found compromise in their decision to adopt another child, as seen in Thursday’s new episode.
“It will be the first time that I’m going to have a child with somebody. Martina came into our life after I’d been a single mother three times,” the Russian beauty said in a confessional.
“And I never experienced what it feels when your partner actually wants to have a child with you. Having a partner for me, it’s just a first time, so I’m very emotional about that.”
Lemigova is the mother of daughters Victoria, 23, and Emma, 16, from previous relationships. She also welcomed a son named Maximilien in 1999, but he tragically died as an infant under suspicious circumstances.
Lemigova and Navratilova have been a couple since 2006. They got engaged at the US Open in September 2014 and married in New York City that December.
“The Real Housewives of Miami” is available to stream on Peacock.
