Erin Andrews is getting death threats. Should this be news?
April 3, 2010
The big problem with why Erin is not receiving 100% sympathy….(if you doubt me, go look at the comments to this story.)
1) HER PUBLICIST REPORTED THIS. If AP or ESPN or whomever reported this from the blotter sheets at the local police station, this would be different. Coming from your own people, it seems like a little attention whoring.
2) DTWS. First, she is not a star. Second, the show, on the heels of Oprah smacks like she is about to drop a book as well about how her life is tortured. Had she given some time for the situation to cool down, continue to go about her business in SPORTS and not just the entertainment, then more people would have compassion. People confuse this with saying that she is at fault, and she clearly isn’t. She did not ask for her privacy to be invaded like that. I think that her management team is trying to parlay her fame and the negative notoriety that she has recently received. They are working on the any publicity is good publicity and that is a mistake.
No one deserves to have death threats, BUT being on TV, that is the price of exposure. (no pun intended here, I have better jokes…) I can guarantee that if you are a TV personality, you have gotten threats. Most of them, we don’t hear about being pushed through by attorneys, to masquerade as news. I hope that they catch the dude or person (women are haters too) who is demented.
Plus, I am in the minority who think that Erin is an attractive woman, but smoking hot is taking it too far.(and a lot of people think that) I see more attractive women walking down the streets of LA, SF, Chicago, NYC and Miami Beach, even smaller places like St. Paul, Cedar Rapids, IA (I danced with a woman that I would have gone through the Bataan Death March for) and Ithaca, NY. Some people are caught up on watching her on TV and the things that they can do on TV to make you look better is amazing. The true test is to see that person live. I think part of the problem is that some of you have low standards, so a 7 looks like a 10, so Erin who is about an 8, looks like an 11 to you. Still, NO ONE DESERVES TO BE STALKED, but she could take a rest. Plus, the emails started seven months ago…so why are they so late to the game? I smell looking for attention… (you and Kate Gosselin) you can’t say leave me alone, at the same time going on a publicity tour/book circuit with Oprah. But, again, I hope the sicko is caught.
