A tearful Elisabeth Hasselbeck apologized to Erin Andrews on Wednesday for making a crass joke about the peephole video stalker that terrorized the ESPN sportscaster not long ago. Hasselbeck said she was “really sorry” about her rude commentary regarding Erin Andrews’ skimpy outfits on Dancing With the Stars.
On Tuesday, Elisabeth Hasselbeck made light of the Erin Andrews peephole video stalker incident by joking that the guy should have just “waited 12 weeks” to see the ESPN sportscaster in her skimpy outfits on Dancing With the Stars.Â Michael David Barrett, who leaked nude video of Erin Andrews shot through hotel door peepholes onto the Net, was convicted in March of interstate stalking and sentenced to 2 1/2 years in prison.
â€œIn light of what happened… 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,â€ Hasselbeck said Tuesday on The View, â€œI [would be] like, â€˜Man! I just couldâ€™ve waited 12 weeks and seen this â€” a little bit less â€” without the prison time!â€™â€
Erin Andrews told Access Hollywood the comments by Hasselbeck left her in tears. Andrews’ DWTS partner, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, called Hasselbeck “stupid” and “jealous” for making such nasty remarks.
On Wednesday, Hasselbeck got teary-eyed while she related having to tell her daughter she had “hurt someone’s feelings” with her words. Hasselbeck said she called Erin Andrews to apologize for being a royal bitch. Okay, the royal bitch part is our words – sorry if it hurts your feelings Elisabeth.
