Five Things You Should Know About Erin Andrews
A few weeks ago, the name “Erin Andrews” meant nothing to those of us who couldn’t care less about ESPN. But after a nude video of the pretty, blonde sports reporter surfaced last week, Andrews is everywhere. Some creep recorded the video without her consent from a hotel room peephole and passed it around on the Internet.
Today, Radaronline.com is reporting a source told them another ESPN employee likely filmed the pervy vid. Radaronline.com also alleges that there are also seven videos of Andrews, all posted on a French website called Dailymotion.com. The user allegedly uploading the video calls himself or herself “Goblazers1″ and identifies himself as a 49-year-old American.
Depressing. We did some digging to find out all this deets on the pervy privacy violation of this ESPN star, who—sucks to be her—will never be known for just sports reporting again.
- Erin graduated with a degree in communications from the University of Florida and was a member of the UF Gator’s dance team, the Dazzlers. She joined ESPN in 2004 and has covered college football, college basketball, hockey and Major League Baseball.
- Playboy named Erin the “sexiest sportscaster” in 2008 and 2009. Apparently she’s referred to as “Erin Pageviews” because her photos and clips on ESPN’s web site go bananas.
- In 2008, columnist Mike Nadel criticized the “skimpy” low-cut dress Andrews wore while interviewing players in the locker room at a Cubs-Brewers game and said players were “leering” at her and making “lewd” comments. (Um, isn’t that their problem?) Andrews shot back with a statement saying she is “adamant that she does not flaunt anything other than her professional talent in pursuit of doing the best job possible.”
- In the blurry, five minute-long video, a nude Andrews allegedly stands in front of a mirror and walks around a hotel room, brushing her hair and putting on makeup. Sounds like our morning routine!
- But justice is being served: some web links claiming to lead to Andrews’ pervy vid are infecting viewers with a computer virus, according to Sophos, an anti-virus software company.
