Erin Andrews made her first late night appearance since winning $55 million in a civil lawsuit over nude videos made of her, and Jimmy Kimmel wasn’t shy about asking Erin if he could share in her huge cash settlement. Erin looked stunning, but was she willing to shell out to Kimmel?
So brave! Erin Andrews, 37, put her Peeping Tom lawsuit victory behind her and went back to being her fun and playful self, stopping by Jimmy Kimmel Live on March 16. Jimmy Kimmel, 48, let her publicly thank everyone for the first time for all of their support during her case, but of course he had to try getting in on some of her winnings!
Erin looked beautiful in a sleeveless white dress with side cut out as Jimmy warmly welcomed her, then asked her if he could have a million dollars. “I don’t have any money,” Erin replied, referring to how she doesn’t make THAT much bank on either DWTS or reporting for Fox Sports, before getting the joke that it was about giant her legal victory.
Jimmy told her “I’m so happy you won,” and that he knew she couldn’t discuss many details of the case since it’s in the appeals process, but he did let her finally speak out in public for the first time about it. “Thank you, yeah, this is kind of my ‘come out of hiding‘ so why would I not want to be here,” she replied. Erin went on to say “I want to thank everybody. People from all over the world, who were so supportive. There are no many nice people that reached out,” then turned to Jimmy to personally tell him, “Thank you, love you.” Aww! Check out “Erin Andrews: A Biography” by clicking right here.
With that out of the way it was time to dish on new cast of season 22’s DWTS. As for who her top three contestants were, she couldn’t say as she hadn’t seen any of them dance yet, but she did make some predictions. She thinks GMA weathercaster Ginger Zee, 35, could do well, noting “She’ll be fine and she has Val (Chmerkovskiy), he’s the hottest.” RAWR! Tell us what you really think about the 29-year-old hunk, Erin!
“With Paige, we have an athlete who can take coaching,” Erin predicted, referring to MMA star Paige VanZant, 21, noting that she’ll also likely go far as she’s partnered with previous champ Mark Ballas, 29. Jimmy decided to make his pick as to who will win the mirrorball trophy and he thinks it will be Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown, 27, and Erin had to agree that was a very wise choice.
