Security has been beefed up for the hit TV show Dancing With The Stars, because of death threats to Erin Andrews, RadarOnline.com has confirmed.
ESPN sportscaster Erin Andrews feels the show must go on, so ABC is taking extra security measures to protect her and the other Dancing With The Stars contestants for Monday night’s live show.
The media and audience have been told to arrive early; every single car entering the CBS Television City Studios in Hollywood will be searched. That means trunks will be opened. And, no one will be allowed onto the lot unless their name is on a list.
As RadarOnline.com first reported Erin was the victim of multiple death threats via email. When asked if he knows the source of the threats, Erin’s attorney Marshall Grossman told RadarOnline.com “We believe we do. The FBI is on the case.”
The last time security was tightened on the set of the ABC show was March 2009, when a crazed fan of Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson jumped the fence of the studios to see Johnson performing on Dancing With The Stars.
Andrews says she will still perform the waltz with her partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy on Monday night.
Dancing With The Stars airs on ABC at 8 p.m. Monday Night.
