Elisabeth Hasselbeck Apologizes to Erin Andrews
One of the hosts of The View made a public and private apologies to one of the contestants of Dancing with the Stars Wednesday, May 5, after the former made tactless comments for the latter’s dress during this week’s performance night.
Elisabeth Hasselbeck made the apologies to Erin Andrews after an advice given to her by her five year old daughter Grace. The young girl said to her mom, “Mommy, why don’t you just call Erin and tell her you’re sorry?”
The host made the following comments, “In the past three weeks she’s been wearing next to nothing. In light of what happened and as a legal [matter] — and as inexcusable as it was for that horrific guy to go in and try to peep on her in her hotel room. 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!’”
Andrews, an ESPN sportscaster, was filmed naked by a man through the peephole in her hotel room. The video was posted online and the man was sentenced last March.
The sportscaster responded to the host’s comments via the program Extra. She said, “…to make a mockery out of a convicted felon and someone that turned my life upside down, I thought it was a huge slap in the face to victims of stalking and sexual predators. It’s not a joke.”
