Erin Andrews! Nude video! Better cool those jets, hotshot

This one’s for Mrs. Lou Bradley of Maysville, Ky. Or, as I like to call her, “Mom.” And Mom always said — and I mean always — that “your sins will find you out.”

Last week a video of Erin Andrews, of whom you’ve heard, surfaced on the Internet. It was shot through a peephole in a hotel room and it featured — and here the hearts of 10 million fanboys go all a-flutter — footage of Ms. Andrews unclad. Her lawyer acted quickly to have such footage removed from the Web.

“While alone in the privacy of her hotel room, Erin Andrews was surreptitiously videotaped without her knowledge or consent,” wrote her attorney, Marshall P. Grossman of Santa Monica, in a statement released on PR Newswire. “She was the victim of a crime and is taking action to protect herself and help ensure that others are not similarly violated in the future. Although the perpetrator or perpetrators of this criminal act have not yet been identified, when they are identified she intends to bring both civil and criminal charges against them and against anyone who has published the material. We request respect of Erin’s privacy at this time, while she and her representatives are working with the authorities.”

If you check today, you’ll not find the video on the Internet. What you might find, according to Samuel Goldsmith of the New York Daily News, is a download purporting to feature Ms. Andrews but containing instead a big fat computer virus. Which, not to get all judgmental, is what you deserve.

As Graham Cluley of Sophos, an anti-virus developer, told Game On!, a USA Today sports blog: “”Hackers are no slacks when it comes to taking advantage of a hot internet search trend, and they have been quick to set up bogus webpages claiming to contain the video footage of Ms Andrews in her hotel room.”

A confession: While I have seen Ms. Andrews in person — she lives in Atlanta — I don’t quite understand the mania that has occurred since she became a sideline reporter on ESPN. (She used to do in-game updates for TBS during Braves games, and nobody seemed to find those exceptional in any way.) Yes, she’s attractive, and yes, she’s on TV, and yes, she covers sports, which caters to an audience of males, but still … a peephole video?

That’s just sick. That’s not even funny sick — it’s “Psycho” sick. (The Bates Motel, as you’ll recall, featured a peephole. And a nut behind the front desk.) Even Deadspin, a site not renowned for its sense of shame, has felt the need to apologize for directing readers to the (since-deleted) video.

And here’s a word from Mrs. Bradley’s son: Making like Norman Bates isn’t cool, isn’t sexy, isn’t anything but … gross. Now go and sin no more.

I have to admit until the virus thing was mentioned I was going to try & Google the video . I feel a little bit bad about mentioning it . It was a slime ball act but beyond that how hot can a video really be shot through a peephole . Women who know sports & hang out in their hotel room naked are awesome . I think we can all agree on that .

I agree on a couple of fronts Mark. 1) this is sick and I hope they catch the idiots that did this 2) I do fondly remember Ms Andrews on the TBS broadcasts. And while I thought she was cute I don’t understand the entire fascination of the fanboys with her online?

Bama Aaron,

????????????????? Erin Andrews is amazing!

Personally, Id like to see the video.

Sorry, but Erin...

…does not float my boat (and yes, I am 100% heterosexual male)- she is just nothing special to me – and how does Mr. Bradley know what is on the web site that purportedly had the original video?

I think the whole thing is a set up, and a sex-tape would not help her career in broadcasting. However, this is going to bring more viewers to the games she works. Her stock just went up to ESPN.

Finally, Mark Bradley wrote something that’s not idiotic. I hope she owns the hotel when this is over.

I feel bad for Erin’s privacy being violated. When a sex tape surfaced on Paris Hilton, she agreed to have royalties for downloads, and is listed as a porn actress on some cites, per TMZ.

As an ol’ friend from Leroy, Alabama would say about Erin Andrews, “she looks good from 40 yards out.” While attractive, she’s no Jill Arrington…..

Lets see, attractive blonde that can talk about any and all sports. Yeah I don’t see what all the fuss is about either. I will have to say, she is a totally differen’t reporter since her Braves days. I would take her over most others in the business on either baseball or football now. Back with the Braves, she made me long for John Sterling and that former outfielder that lasted a year. What was his name?

Now Mark any publicity is good publicity in entertainment . Publicity about an attractive blonde sports reporter hanging out in her hotel room naked & having a video shot of them is going to give attention to her & her employer . Sports fans are for the most part male no ? The attention from this will benefit her to a degree don’t you think Mark .

Pre-drilled hole and camera small enough not to be noticed? I’d investigate other rooms in the hotel for peepholes….which I’m sure the police are.

I bet the place is a constant feed of hidden camera videos.

Ever hear of waxing here and there to remove unwanted hair?

I never noticed anything unsightly about Jill….looked really good in a sweater too.

I know it’s different strokes for different folks, but “SimpleDawg” I just went back and checked out Jill Arrington’ pics and I still think Erin’s hotter and a much better allsports reporter. She really works hard researching every sport she reports on where as Jill just worked hard lookin’ pretty.
I saw the disgustingly wrong peepshow on barstool sports and Erin was HOT!

SURE. Im buying this stance from most of the bloggers.

This is one of those to wife: “Can you believe how disgusting this is?!” (See Joe Buck “Thats just disgusting”)

10 minutes later you are looking for the video. Then on Poker Night Tuesday you will be talking about how hot she is with the buds.

Be real. I found it. I watched it. I thought it was very hot. Maybe that makes me sick—but at least im honest. I’m a red blooded male and she is HOT. Eve couldnt resist the apple. I couldnt resist the chance to see Erin Andrews naked.

Be Real

And yes, shes hotter because shes on TV and you arent SUPPOSED to be able to see her naked…and shes pretty smokin anyway.

The way she talks through her nose annoys me and has since she did the studio gig for Thrashers games. Sounds just like all the other whiny Florida yankees. I don’t understand the perverted fascination with her at all.

BTW, it looks like she held up a dress in the footage that looks like the one she wore at the ESPYs filmed last week (shown last night). It was probably a hotel room in LA.

Sarcasm!

Glenn- I agree, ESPN has really struggled to get viewers. It would make sense for them/her to do this so people will actual tune into one of their 4 or 5 stations.

Not letting Erin Andrews do hockey was a HUGE mistake that ended up benefitting her and ESPN. For what it’s worth, I thought she was very attractive when she was working for TBS.

That being said, the thing that kills me about this is the site that posted it and attracted the wrath of ESPN’s attorneys said NOTHING about it being Erin Andrews. It was only after the e-mail from ESPN’s attorneys that they realized what it was. The video also apparently has – or had, at this point – been available at another since since the middle of February (it was not identified as Erin Andrews there either).

I haven’t seen it, but a few sites have reported that the quality is terrible (what do you expect through a peephole) and that you can’t even tell for sure that it’s Erin Andrews.

Well, at least you couldn’t until she and the ESPN attorneys decided to go crazy.

Jill was blonde out of a bottle and if she hadn’t gotten back to Beverly Hills and missed a waxing she would have a shadow because she is dark headed and not a true blonde like Erin. Erin does the college basebal w.s. She’s awesome.
JCWFalcon, thanks for your honesty, me I’m paranoid. You know big brother gettin in my computer

Mark,

She’s Gator-trash. Who cares? The video probably just caught the WWTTD? tatoo (What Would Tim Tebow Do?) on her backside.

Again… I see about 20,000 MUCH better looking members of the fairer sex walking around Athens every day.

id say with 99% certainty its her. #1- they jumped on it too fast just to be another hot blond. #2- she held up a dress that looked very similar to the one she wore to the ESPY’s.

Mark who was the color guy (Terence I’m talking about the other guy with the play by play guy) that did Braves games in the 80’s, got run off about the time Sterling did? Played left field some, pure aweful.

Mark,

Oh, and BTW… Sarah Palin is kinda hot. So is Rachel Madow.

Doesn’t mean either of them offer or do anything actually substantial in their jobs, does it?

The Curious Case of Erin Andrews (let’s call it) just proves that guys have extremely low standards (again, she’s GATOR-TRASH).

We should all aspire to the standards of Tom Brady, I think. :-)

To me, an attractive woman that knows about sports is a turn on. I can’t stand the women who are high maintenance and are afraid to break their nails.

Mark, you could not be more right.

I hope the perp ( or perv ) is caught and prosecuted to her liking.

Maybe she’ll end up with a hotel or two out of this.

She may or not be sports eye candy, but she does bring game.

Oh well, you seen one, you seen them all. The only differences are colors, sizes & shapes. I don’t know myself, but maybe Erin’s is trimmed in GOLD! Honestly, I dont quite understand all the fuss, much to do about seriously nothing. If you have a woman, it’s really better to view the real thing on her than have some fantasy on a boot leg video. Just IMHO~

Let’s face it. Erin Andrews is only looking for TMZ type status. The sex tapes worked for Kim Kardashian, Paris, and Pam Anderson. It’s about selling yourself to get fame. Now non-sports fans will know who she is. She and her PR firm planted this.

And I thought I was cynical (I am, too.)
Frankly, in this age of voyeurism and the constant idolatry of celebrities, I’m a bit surprised something like this hasn’t happened sooner to Ms. Andrews or any one of her colleagues. Now, that doesn’t make it right in the least bit. Not at all. This invasion of her privacy is beyond ghastly and reprehensible. It’s worthy of a good blanket party for the culprit (if you need a reminder, see “Full Metal Jacket.” You’ll get it.) with Ms. Andrews being allowed to take the first swing, the last swing and as many swings in the middle as she desires.
In a world where TMZ and Perez Hilton (and just who the hell is he and why should he matter) actually have an audience, it only points to the continuing degradation of our society as a whole. And this whole keyhole video of Ms. Andrews ain’t helping, brother.
