"They're there all the time. So when I'm with my children, when I'm with my daughters, they're there and their pictures are being taken. Imagine, I just try to put myself in their shoes. It's their family. "They're so young, they don't have the tools or the life experience to even really be able to put it into perspective. And it's just been a really hard, hard journey that will continue. We're all in therapy. All of us are."

Since Amy and T.J.'s podcast premiered on Tuesday, another bombshell revelation came out, when Page Six and People reported that the couple's former spouses, Andrew Shue and Marliee Fiebig, are dating.

"November 30, 2022, was the day that we were, and this is very important, we were outed," T.J. said during episode one of their new podcast. 

"To be clear, we were outed as being in a relationship, but everyone else thought we were being outed as adulterers — being outed as cheating on our spouses — and it wasn’t the case because the odd thing is, the day those pictures were taken and the day that article was released, we both at that point were in divorce proceedings." 

Amy, 50, added: "Yes, we had attorneys, mediators. We were in the middle of divorces."
