Amy Robach, the former cohost of the afternoon show "GMA3: What You Need to Know," joined TikTok and says she hopes to show the world who she is and “hopefully take back my narrative.”

The former host says she's trying TikTok because she "loves trying new things."

"I'm really late to TikTok," she said. "But better late than never."

In the video, she states she's living her truth, but "there has been a price to pay."

The 50-year-old mom of two already has over 33,200 followers. She posted three videos that garnered around 44,400 likes at the time this article was written. Her first video by far has gotten her the most likes and is currently sitting at 34,700 likes.

"I'm excited to talk about who I am, how I live and what I stand for," Robach states in her first TikTok.

She hopes to show the people who think they know her story "what the real me and who the real me is."

Robach also talked about her new podcast.

"That's a whole new adventure that I'm figuring out as I go along with my partner, T.J. [Holmes]," she said.

Robach and Holmes hosted "GMA3: What You Need to Know" together from 2020 to 2023. However, their relationship went from professional to romantic.

They were removed as hosts from the show when the Daily Mail published photos of the two holding hands and Holmes tapping Robach's butt.

"I loved you on GMA! Their loss when they let you and TJ go," commented one user on Robach's first TikTok video. "I don’t think it is their business when it comes to who you love."

The two were separately married when their relationship was outed by the publication.

ABC News President Kim Godwin said the relationship was not a violation of company policies, but decided to let the hosts go after the affair became an "internal and an external distraction," according to an employee who was not authorized to share details publicly, reports USA Today.

Holmes was married to immigration attorney Marilee Fiebig when the affair first came to light. However, the couple had separated in August 2022, then later divorced in December of the same year, reported People.

According to E News, Robach was married to Melrose Place alum, Andrew Shue. They later divorced in March.

Their Podcast: The "Amy & T.J. Podcast."

The couple already started spilling the tea on their life in TV.

In one episode, Robach states she would never return to daytime television.

"I learned that I never want to go back to the grind of morning television," she said. She continues to state that while she doesn't miss the job, she does miss the people. Holmes agreed.

In an earlier episode, the couple revealed that they planned on telling the public about their relationship before the Daily Mail published its story.

Robach states it might've "been better" to address their relationship and go public.

"But what we were trying to do was keep our jobs," she said before admitting the couple wrote press releases on Nov. 30, 2022, the day the publication released the photos.

Both Robach and Holmes state their respective marriages were almost over, but they did not want to address the allegation to avoid escalating the situation.
