'Dancing With the Stars': Erin Andrews will boldly waltz it out, despite death threats

Despite learning over the weekend about death threats emailed to her (the FBI says the man sending the messages lives on the East Coast), ESPN correspondent Erin Andrews will dance the waltz with professional partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy in tonight’s Week 3 performance episode of ABC’s Dancing With the Stars. ABC has heightened security surrounding the set. “I don’t quit on things,” Andrews said in a statement Sunday.

Is any press good press? In a nation’s sweeping effort to FREE TONY! following tonight’s ballroom dance inspired by Kate and Jon Gosselin’s icky marriage, will viewers throw a few more votes to Erin? Back in season 7, Shawn Johnson had an in-town stalker who actually trespassed onto the DWTS set, and she went on to win the season. So now all Andrews has to do is take a deep breath, close the computer, and become as good at ballroom dancing as a 17-year-old Olympic gymnast. Do it for Maks, Erin. Do it for my fake lover, Maks.

    I’ll support them (and by them I mean Maks) but oh do I miss Maks and Mel B. It’s been three years and I still can’t get over their loss. Damn you Helio and your yellow race car costume.

  • Joanie

    Annie! There’s nothing fake about lover Maks!!!

    GO ERIN GO!!!

  • shelby

    the only reason we know about this is because abc wants ratings. hey tune in just in case erin’s stalker is in the audience and tries somthing. that is terrible. this should be a private matter between her and the fbi and the producers.

  • Marianne

    Can’t she catch a break? I mean what exactly did she do to deserve death threats? Be a victim of some peeping Tom. That warrants a death threat now? Geez. I’ll hope for the best.

    • llevinso

      I know! I feel horrible for her. I don’t watch the show (and I’m not going to regardless) but I really hope she does okay. She can’t seem to catch a break here and no one deserves this.

  • vera

    I love me some Maksim. Go on with your life Erin, don’t let anyone stop you.



    • Silv

      Love Maks & Erin! I cracked up when Maks complained that Erin wasn’t letting him criticize, his only real pleasure. I love the fact that someone came up with “Free Tony” t-shirts. If only each sale included a vote specifically designed to boot Kate out.

  • Elizabeth

    I just hope that we’re not beaten over the head with all the off-stage drama tonight. Unless you’ve lived under a rock for the last couple of days, you’ve heard about this.

    Who-the-f is Erin Andrews?


    I think this whole “I hate Kate” thing is mean. I’m tired of her too, but there’s no reason to be mean about it.

    Erin Andrews is a sports caster (sp?) and is usually reporting from the field or court of whatever teams are playing. But there’s some sick-o who’s been stalking her, taking pictures of her through the peep-hole of whatever hotel room she’s stayed in whenever she’d been on travel. I guess they caught the guy who took the pictures, but now there’s another one? Or am I wrong and this is the same guy who took the pictures? There’s too much to keep up with and really, it’s awful she has to deal with it, but I’m getting tired of the drama that seems to plague DWTS…

    I had the opportunity to meet
    Mr. Max when he was judging a dance contest…he’s very handsome but not very approachable.

  • mathew daneswood

    • b

    • llevinso

      You are disgusting. Get a life.

      • mathew daneswood

        whats the problem? i think its a legitimate question and the public has a right to know

    • mathew daneswood

      i’m thinking she doesn’t. i’m going with no.

  • Donna

    Mathew is sick. Guys like him turn out to be stalkers.

    • mathew daneswood

      yes, very sick, but thankfully they tell me i’ll be all better and able to get out of lock-down sometime next year. hoorray!!

  • Briana

    Free Tony! Love Maks! I think that should be this year’s slogan.
