On Tuesday Hasselbeck criticized Andrews for wearing skimpy outfits after she was the victim of a peephole stalker.
The comments set off Twitter frenzy with her dancing co-stars. Her professional partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy quickly fired back: “”I’m the one designing [Andrews’] dresses for the show, so I’ll just assume that [Hasselbeck] is jealous… and stupid….”
Louis Van Amstel wrote: “Why did u have to throw @erinandrewsespn under the bus this morning? Shame on [you] … Leave her alone. Aren’t u all working for the same network ABC/ESPN???? U should have each other’s back, not trashtalk Erin.”
Even Evan Lysacek went to Twitter to blow off steam:: “So disappointed that anyone would attack [her] after all she’s been through.”
Andrews told Access Hollywood she “cried” after hearing the remarks. “I think people can have opinions about the show, but my biggest complaint is she’s a woman and a mother and it was a mockery of something I’ve lived through this last year. … I felt like it was a slap in the face for victims of stalkers and victims of sexual predators.”
On Wednesday Elisabeth confessed, “I ended up hurting her.”
And she said her 5-year-old daughter Grace gave her the best advice. “She said to me, ‘Mommy, why don’t you just call Erin and tell her you’re sorry?’ ” Hasselbeck said. “So, thankfully, I listened to her — she’s a wise little girl — and I did. So, I’m really sorry, and I wanted to offer that publicly too, even though I did follow that advice.”
