Serious sideline reporter Erin Andrews wore what YankeeMegs called 'nude nail polish for pants' last week during the NFC Championship. This morning, Phil Mushnick reacts:
Here’s the deal, Erin Andrews: Drooling, tweet-twisted males will cease objectifying you as a sexual object, and perhaps even regard you as a serious broadcast journalist — as you’ve insisted all folks should — if you provide some evidence that you wish to be regarded as one.
While with ESPN, Andrews was the victim of a horrifying, highly publicized crime: A man covertly videotaped her while she was in her hotel room. He was convicted, sentenced. Good.
But since that episode, Andrews’ sincerity in being regarded as a serious TV journalist — and her choice to be a spokesperson against the objectification of women — has been betrayed by her own choices and professional behavior.
What she described as part of her “healing process” following that stalking included the removal of much of her clothing to perform for ESPN’s Disney sibling, ABC, on “Dancing With The Stars.”
Andrews, now with Fox, appeared from the Niners’ sideline on Sunday at the top of the NFC Championship coverage wearing skin-tight, shiny pants. Hmmm.
Fox obliged her — and reminded us of what her hire likely is predicated on — by first showing Andrews in full, check-her-out view. Next, it was time to go to Pam Oliver, on the Falcons’ sideline. She appeared only from the waist, up.
With Fox, Ms. Andrews’ curious healing process apparently continues.
