Insiders claimed TJ is popular with ABC executives for his presenting and producing skills but is “hated” by the production staff.
A source told Page Six: “He terrorizes the staff. They hate him.
“He yells at producers, snaps at people and people don’t want to work with him.”
Another source branded him “snooty” and “nasty” to staffers and said he had a reputation for being “a douche long before this [‘affair’]scandal erupted”.
They added: “He loves himself, and really thinks he’s a huge star. He acts like he’s hot s**t.
“He’s nicer when he’s around the top anchors, but if he’s not with them, he acts like he runs the place and isn’t as nice.”
The first source also claimed staffers don’t want to get on TJ’s bad side because “he holds a grudge.”
A source close to TJ, 45, slammed the allegations and told Page Six that they are a “transparent and baseless character assassination.”
TJ and his GMA3 co-host Amy, 49, sent shockwaves through the TV world when their “affair” was exposed in late November.
The scandal broke in November, when they were spotted enjoying what looked like a series of PDA-filled “dates” and a weekend getaway.
The pair – who began anchoring GMA3 in 2020 – reportedly began their alleged affair in June.
Since the news broke, TJ and Amy have made no secret of their relationship in public.
They were caught kissing and cuddling during a steamy getaway to Miami days after Christmas.
The couple also smiled and looked cozy during a grocery run days later.
TJ and Amy were taken off GMA3 after the public caught wind of their “affair” and an internal investigation was launched.
The U.S. Sun exclusively revealed that they are facing off with top ABC executives and lawyers in New York City this week to finalize their exit from the network.
The well-placed source said they are in tense mediation sessions as they hammer out their exit package.
As one network source revealed earlier this month, the coupled-up co-hosts are unofficially out at GMA3 and they’ve been bracing for the worst possible outcome.
The official exit talks come on the heels of a report by the DailyMail that TJ had an alleged affair with yet another woman – this time an ABC employee 13 years his junior, early on in his marriage to estranged wife Marilee Fiebig.
TJ and Amy have been replaced on the show by a series of different hosts during their suspension, including Gio Benitez and Janai Norman.
Amy’s divorce from her husband Andrew Shue will reportedly be finalized soon.
