Female sports reporters are blasting Erin saying she’s making a “fool out of herself” for going on DWTS. Do you agree?
Even though she is scoring pretty well, ESPN reporter Erin Andrews is being slammed for appearing on hit ABC show Dancing with the Stars! On Apr. 8, Toronto Star Op-Ed columnist Rosie DiManno dedicated an entire column to publicly bashing the blonde sports reporter.
“[Erin] made a fool out of herself and a sham of her profession,” says Rosie. “I want to grab [her] by the shoulders and shout: ‘What are you thinking, woman?!'” Rosie, who, as a female journalist herself seems to take personal offense to Erin’s new gig, adds that the dancing gal is damaging her career. “I’m appalled by the damage she’s doing to her profession and her own reputation as a journalist,” says Rosie.
Erin responded to the harsh comments on SportsIllustrated.com, saying, “I’m not sure what damage I created for myself,” she says. “What am I doing to be a bimbo? I don’t understand what I’m doing wrong.”
“I’m basically killing myself to not embarrass myself,” says Erin. “I’ve been in the top three in scoring each week, behind an athlete and a professional dancer and singer.”
