It’s not the most romantic kind of date, but it’s one that the late great PR guru Howard Bragman would’ve approved of — and perhaps even wanted phoned in to Page Six.
On Sunday, T.J. Holmes and Amy Robach left attendees at the late Bragman’s star-studded memorial service gobsmacked when they arrived at a private park where the ceremony was held in North Hollywood, Calif.
“I couldn’t believe it was them! I didn’t even know they were in LA,” a source who attended the service told Page Six.
“They looked like… they weren’t inappropriate, but she was in this wrap dress that was very short, and they just looked like this hot couple. There was no shame in their game,” the source said.
The dress code for Bragman’s starry send off was “fabulous, business casual,” we’re told.
Holmes wore a navy suit to compliment Robach’s “sexy wrap dress,” and they both donned sunglasses during the outdoor ceremony.
We’re told the scandalous, unemployed couple “arrived maybe 10 to 15 minutes” before the service started and despite the circumstances, “they seemed extremely happy and greeted everyone with warm smiles. They were extremely friendly with everyone,” the source said.
Still, “there were a lot of people whispering. There was something electric. They seemed like a couple, who’re obviously in love. They were definitely attentive and aware of each other,” the source added.
Bragman was the crisis PR guru and activist who was also primarily known for his work with handling LGBTQ stars who came out publicly. He was also a consultant for ABC News, where Holmes and Robach previously worked.
Don Lemon, a former Bragman client in a current pickle, contributed a video clip to the funeral to remember his late publicist.
Meanwhile, Melissa Rivers brought some comic relief to the service, joking about being “shocked that Howard has allowed me to speak without going over talking points and vetting the audience,” according to Variety.
Rivers added that she “lost a true friend and trusted advisor.”
Broadway producer Scott H. Mauro was the event’s emcee. Other attendees included Bragman’s husband, Mike Maimone, and TV star Lizzy Caplan.
Bragman died last month after battling leukemia. He was 66.
