FANHOUSE ran a video interview with Erin Andrews last week, and lotsa eagle-eyed SbB readers spotted a gaudy monstrosity on her left ring finger:
So I checked with a source who asked EA today if she’s engaged. She replied that she wasn’t and that the ring was “for show.”
Hmmm. I don’t see many eminently eligible young females wearing engagement rings, so you wonder if her job description has anything to do with her rocking the rock? Especially in light of what I reported about another female ESPN reporter last month.
Is it just a coincidence that the ring suddenly appeared on Andrews’ finger shortly after I reported that now-disgraced, former UK Coach Billy Gillispie asked out ESPN sideline reporter Jeannine Edwards - and then trashed her (twice!) on-air after he was turned down.
Males may guffaw at the prospect, but if you’ve been around testosterone-brimmed locker rooms like I have over the years, you realize that Andrews’ bauble could very well be sending an intentional signal to over-aggressive interview subjects.
