It's not easy being a gorgeous ESPN sideline reporter.
You may get paired with Maksim Chmerkovskiy on Dancing with the Stars, but you'll also get nakedly peeped at by a shady dude in the hotel room next door to you.
Now, news has broken of an even more dangerous situation involving Erin Andrews: multiple sources confirm that a man from Virginia has been sending threatening emails to her since September.
Andrews and her attorney, Marshall Grossman, only recently discovered the messages existed, as they were sent to The Dan Patrick Show (an ESPN program) and kept from Erin until this week.
The emails focus on the case of Michael David Barrett, who was sentenced last month to over two years in federal prison for secretly shooting nude videos of Andrews.
"He refers to Barrett in his e-mail in a way to make clear to us that situation had some influence," Grossman said, adding that the FBI has been notified.
Security on Dancing with the Stars will be increased for Andrews. Why? Just look at how scary and disgusting a few of the emails are:
- "Dear Dan: I hope Erin Andrews gets murdered in L.A." (3/29/10)
- "I hope she gets shot in the face. I would love to see if she can dance away from a hail of gunfire. That would really make my day." (3/26/10)
- "I would love to get close enough to her to show her my suicide vest." (3/14/10)
