Erin Andrews replaces Brooke Burke on DWTS

erin-andrews

After Erin Andrews completed her third place finish on ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars,” I posed the question where will she land next? And on June 15th, 2010 I wrote right here in this spot “Erin Andrews should replace Brooke Burke as host of DWTS.” It looks like ABC/Disney is listening to me because today that exact move was announced.

erin-andrews

You have seen the last of Erin Andrews at ESPN, and she is now officially headed to Fox Sports instead. She officially became done with the WWL Friday as they let it be known today via tweet from their PR department. As you would expect for anything involving “Erin Pageviews” that tweeted was RTd thousands of times.

And now Fox Sports itself has let the new home of EA be known.

“Opportunities to add someone of Erin Andrews’ caliber don’t come along often and we’re thrilled to welcome her back to the FOX Sports family,” said Eric Shanks, executive producer, co-president and COO, FOX Sports Media Group. “Erin is one of the hardest-working, most-respected individuals in sports television and we expect her to have an immediate impact.

Erin Andrews’ Sister Kendra Plays Stripper on Episode of “House” (Video)

kendra-andrews-erin-andrews

So Erin Andrews, sideline reporter of sideline reporters, has a sister who’s also in show business. Kendra Andrews is a very obscure actress-model-dancer who got a degree in dance at Florida State. (Yes, I guess you can actually major in such a thing at schools in the sunshine state, but anyway, given how EA was a member of the Gators dance team in college, I’m sure the UF-FSU rivalry is always fun in the Andrews household.)

Yesterday Andrews tweeted: 

Woohoo!! So proud of my sis..RT @KendraAndrews1: Here is footage from my guest star on HOUSE M.D.!!

Therefore, we present to you after the jump: Kendra Andrews as “Dina” in Season 7 Episode 22 of House M.D.

illinois-celebration

You look at the pic above and think “what does a celebration from the Illinois Fighting Illini 2004-05 college basketball season have to do with this?” The long overdue firing of the school’s college football coach Ron Zook.

Well, when I searched for google images of “Illini celebration,” it was all hoops images. (which says something about why the Zooker is being jettisoned. And, I needed an orange and blue celebration pic for a news like this.

Which Illini Coordinator Gets Ron Zook’s (Interim) Job?

erin-andrews_ron-zook

In 2009, a very underachieving Illini football team finished 3-9. Picked as high as third by some Big Ten and college football pundits, the horrible record was nothing short of a catastrophe for the resume of Ron Zook and the Illinois program.

Or so I thought.

Logic dictated then Illinois Athletic Director Ron Guenther can Zook then and there. Unfortunately, Guenther had FOOLISHLY given Zook a big, expensive contract extension before that season, and buying him out would have been just about financially impossible.

So what did Guenther/Illinois do? They doubled down on a losing hand. Sort of.

They brought in two flashy, expensive coordinators to take as much responsibility off of Zook’s plate as possible. Vic Koenning for the defense, Paul Petrino for the offense.

So which one gets the gig now?

Ready for the Erin Andrews vs. Michelle Beadle Cat Fight?

erin andrews hotmichelle_beadle

This is going to be a fun media sensation once it gets going. Maybe not as much fun as the fall of 2005 when two Carolina Panther cheerleaders were kicked out of a nightclub for getting it on with each other in the bathroom, but still fun nonetheless.

It appears two of the Evil Empire’s most prominent eye candy –Erin Andrews and Michelle Beadle– are at odds with each other. And a new tell all book about life inside the ESPN Mothership could fan the flames.

According to Deadspin:

Michelle Beadle freely admits that she’s not a fan of Erin Andrews. “Everyone who knows me knows that,” she tells me. It hasn’t affected any of the hierarchy at ESPN at this point, but Beadle’s admission in the new ESPN oral history that she watched Erin’s peephole vid could put the WWL in the precarious position of having to side with one of their premier talents over another.
