T.J. Holmes and Amy Robach have been spilling their guts about their relationship — and the latest truth bomb is strange … ’cause they both admit they can’t stand being confined.
The former ‘GMA3’ anchors-turned-lovers got into a new topic on the latest episode of their ‘Amy & T.J.’ podcast — where they each delved into a specific type of fear they share, which is called cleithrophobia … basically, the fear of being trapped.
T.J. took the lead in explaining the difference between this and claustrophobia — noting the latter is a fear of being stuck in a small space, but the former is just being afraid of not being able to get out of a certain place or environment.
He says, “So if you’re claustrophobic, you see a small space, you see that elevator and you go, ‘Oh God.’ And you get anxiety, that’s claustrophobia. The other is, when I see the small space, I got no problem getting in that space. But if that buzzer goes off and I’m trapped in here now, it’s a totally different situation.”
Amy echoed that, adding what he’d just explained described her own fear to a T. In other words, they’re both on the same page about being terrified over not being able to escape something … and while they probably think they’re bonding, others view this differently.
Fact is, they’ve been incredibly honest about their shared love life … sometimes for better or worse. We heard them argue just last week, and now — they’re addressing a new element that, perhaps subconsciously, seems to be addressing their own real-life situation.
Who knows, maybe we’re reading too into this … but we certainly think we’re picking up on something here — and it might be hinting at trouble in paradise, despite what they project.
Here’s hoping everything’s alright with them!
