The greatest thing about ABC’s decision to use all-stars for next season of Dancing With the Stars is the idea of celebrities returning to their ex boyfriends and girlfriends for the competition. Though it’s a long shot, perhaps Mario Lopez will be paired with Karina Smirnoff, Sabrina Bryan will reunite with Mark Ballas, Derek Hough will reconnect with Shannon Elizabeth, and Maksim Chmerkovskiy can pair up with Willa Ford or Erin Andrews. This is going to be good.
Erin Andrews is a warrior. Not only did she have a psycho stalker take naked pictures of her that ended up all over the internet, but she continues to fight every single website that keeps her photos posted. So when I read that she had her lawyer send a letter to TheDirty.com, asking them to remove the naked pictures of her, I assumed they would be taken down immediately. Why? Because no one is possibly that evil, right? Once a stalker-victim contacts you directly, wouldn’t your ounce of humanity kick in? Apparently, TheDirty.com, doesn’t believe in humanity, and they updated their post after receiving Andrews’ letter, to say, “are these the pictures your lawyer wants me to remove? I’m confused.” In case you’re not aware, TheDirty.com is run by Nik Richie, who is married to Shayne Lamas of The Bachelor fame. Lamas broke up with Bachelor Matt Grant, because “she thought she was marrying a banker, and then found out he really wanted to be a television host.” It’s nice to know Shayne found someone with better career standards. Congratulations on trading up.
Erin Andrews responded to Elizabeth Hasselbeck’s tearful apology on ‘The View.’ In case you missed it, Hasselbeck said that she took the advice of her five year old daughter and called Andrews to ask forgiveness for basically saying that she’s a slut – followed by a reference to her stalker. Well, Andrews calls bull-shit. She said that she never spoke to Hasselbeck. Andrews was admittedly angry about the initial comments, stating that she cried when she heard it. She said that her biggest complaint is that Hasselbeck “made a mockery of something [she’s] lived through this last year.” She felt like it was a “slap in the face for victims of stalkers and victims of sexual predators.” This isn’t the first time that Hasselbeck has been called out for lying on ‘The View.’ When she and Rosie O’Donnell had their infamous fight, Hasselbeck claimed that they spoke and made up. O’Donnell refuted the claims, saying that even though Hasselbeck called her house, she didn’t answer the phone and the two never talked. Watch Hasselbeck’s apology below.
