  • ABC continues investigating Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes' office romance
  • ABC executives think Robach and Holmes "should be fired"
  • The rumored couple will have a mediation session with their lawyers

Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes remain suspended from "GMA3" as ABC executives struggle to "figure out" an appropriate punishment for the pair's once-secret office romance.

The 49-year-old ABC News reporter and 45-year-old former CNN correspondent made the headlines late last year for having an alleged affair. At the time, photos of the pair cozying up together surfaced on the internet while still married to other people.

Holmes tied the knot with Marilee Fiebig in March 2010 before filing for divorce in December after almost 13 years of marriage. They share a 10-year-old daughter named Sabine, Page Six reported.

Robach, for her part, is in the final stages of her divorce proceedings with Andrew Shue. The pair were married for 12 years but had "constant problems" over the years, leading to the split.

Following the news of the affair, the "GMA3" co-anchors were temporarily taken off the show on Dec. 5 as ABC conducted an internal investigation into their relationship, Entertainment Tonight reported.

"Amy and T.J. will remain off-air pending the completion of an internal review, and there will be a rotation of anchors at 'GMA3' for the time being," ABC News president Kimberly Godwin wrote in a letter addressed to the staff, according to the outlet.

"It is my hope that we will continue to focus our energy on what we do best, and I want all of you to know how immensely proud I am of your hard work and professionalism," she continued.

But it appeared that company executives have yet to find a solution to the issue since "a lot of higher-ups at the show think they should be fired," according to an unnamed source that recently spoke to People. "But the problem is they can't fire them, so they're really in trouble and trying to figure it out."

Another unnamed source with direct knowledge of the matter revealed to TMZ that the couple would be meeting with ABC on Thursday for a mediation session, along with their lawyers, after the broadcasting giant made it clear that they do not want Robach and Holmes back together on the same set.

The outlet noted that ABC has not yet decided whether they wanted one or both of them gone entirely, so the pair's future remains uncertain.

While the news correspondents await the company's decision, their relationship appears to be going strong two months after their affair was exposed in the media last November.

"They're just going along and doing their thing," an unnamed source revealed to People, adding that there are "no grounds" to fire the two and that the network was "just waiting for things to cool down."

Robach and Holmes were recently spotted grabbing drinks at an Irish pub called The Full Shilling in New York City and sitting in a small private room away from the public eye. But a day after the sighting, the couple reportedly jetted out of the Big Apple right before they were scheduled to meet the ABC executives. It is unclear where the couple went.
