Elisabeth Hasselbeck Bashes Erin Andrews; Dancing with the Stars Cast Slams Idiot View Host

by at . Comments

Erin Andrews‘s waltz on Monday's Dancing with the Stars was one of her best efforts to date, according to the judges and voters. Just not Elisabeth Hasselbeck.

The View host criticized Erin - who has endured two separate stalking incidents in the past year - for "dressing inappropriately" on the ABC reality competition.

“In light of what happened and as a legal [matter] - and as inexcusable as it was for that horrific guy to go in and peep on her in her hotel,” Hasselbeck said.

“I mean, in some way if I’m him, I’m like, ‘Man! I just could’ve waited 12 weeks and seen this - a little bit less - without the prison time!’”

That's a bad joke at best, and a very rude insult at worst.

In March, Michael David Barrett was sentenced to federal prison for filming Erin Andrews nude through a hotel peephole and posting a video of her online.

In April, after her Dancing with the Stars debut, Andrews received death threats. Elisabeth apparently thinks she should lock herself at home as a result?

Erin called these remarks “a slap in the face to victims of stalking and sexual predators. As a mother and a woman, I’m disappointed she went there.”

Don't even get Maksim Chmerkovskiy started, either. The Dancing With the Stars pro, who's partnered with Erin this season, was far from thrilled.

Chmerkovskiy quickly fired back: "I'm the one designing [Andrews'] dresses for the show, so I'll just assume that [Hasselbeck] is jealous... and stupid."

Pro Louis Van Amstel also defended Andrews, Twittering to Hasselbeck: "Why did u have to throw @erinandrewsespn under the bus this morning?"

"Shame on [you] ... Leave her alone. Aren't u all working for the same network ABC/ESPN???? U should have each other's back, not trashtalk Erin."

Fellow contestant Evan Lysacek also chimed in on the topic: "So disappointed that anyone would attack [her] after all she's been through."

Andrews told Access Hollywood she "cried" after hearing the remarks: "People can have opinions about the show, but my biggest complaint is she's a woman and a mother and it was a mockery of something serious I've lived through."

A little silly to single out Erin on a show where all the stars - men and women - dress and dance suggestively, don't you think? Whose side are you on?


i knew there's somethin crazy about elisabeth


It is an awful truth,that Erin was spied upon,and her privacy invaded by a peeping tom/pervert.He has been sentence.For whatever reason that Erin decided to go on DWTS,she made the decision.All the women custumes are skimpy and revealing,as well as the men outfits being revealing.Erin chose not to continue to be a victim,and chose to participate in a show where all the performers are amateurs and professional dancers.If you are going to judge the outfits that the custumers design for Erin,speak about the other outfits as well,without low-rating Erin.


DI again I ment to say Elizabeth is a MORON!!!!! And a few other things i can't write down.


Elizabeth is a moran, she should of thought what she was saying before it came out of her mouth!!! I can't stand that twit.


Hasselback is a twit and is so friggin annoying...her claim to fame is oh wait, Survivor, a husband who has a lossing NFL career and a member of the stupids women's how on TV. As a female, the View is nothing more than a gossip show with nothing but air of opinions. I love that "randyjacksonbutt" is just as ignorant today as years past...women who dress skimp, etc must be asking to get raped, abused, beaten, stalked. Get with the times.


Barbara....make her give an apology. Nasty mean brat.


So, again, by your logic: men are attracted to beautiful women. Therefore, if they rape or violate these women, it is the fault of the women because they flaunted their beauty.
It's safe to say I can't hold a rational discussion with someone this myopic, sexist and ignorant.


Exactly! It sounds ludacris but that is it. Men watch a lot of sports and sports can become an obsession just like a beautiful woman can become an obsession. Put both obsessions together and you get crazy stalkers. Take tennis player Monica Seles for example. Women tennis players wear sexy skirts and some crazy stalker actually stabbed her on the court. Thank God they now have better security. When Erin Andrews started off as a sideline reporter she didn't wear that risky of clothes but as she started to get bigger games to cover her clothing became tighter and more revealing. Sure, she became successful but she also acquired not one but multiple stalkers - no coincidence in my opinion.


So, just to be clear, Erin Andrews invited her privacy to be invaded by wearing a short skirt? Why draw the line there?
She was probably asking to be raped, too, right? What's the difference, according to your logic?


It may have been rude of Hasselback to say that but she's right. I will go even further and say that Erin caused the stalking herself by wearing such skimpy clothes while being a sideline reporter. For people that have watched sports for years like myself it has always been obvious that she got by on her good looks and took it even farther by wearing revealing clothes on the sidelines. This just in - Erin Andrews dance partner has just been awarded with the "Douchiest Man Alive" award. Congrats on beating out the guy from the Hills.
