Desmond Howard apparently isn’t a fan of Erin Andrews.
During an appearance on the “College GameDay: Two Audiences As One” podcast with James Andrew Miller, the former Heisman Trophy winner and current ESPN college football analyst described what it was like to work with Andrews.
Andrews was on the ESPN College GameDay crew from 2010-2012 while employed by the WorldWide Leader and Howard said her obsession with the Hollywood scene was clear.
In fact, during one meeting, Andews’ love for gossip websites seemed to irritate Lee Corso.
Here’s a transcription of Howard’s comments, via Yahoo Sports:
“It was my first time working with Erin so I didn’t know what to expect and I didn’t know what the expectations were of her for the show. So I just kind of went with the flow. If those guys were happy with what she was doing and her contribution then I was like so be it. I think that in the meetings she had some stuff going on with Dancing With the Stars or whatever and so she was kind of to that Hollywood scene and I remember one time we were in a meeting and she was talking about Perez Hilton and I remember looking at [Kirk] Herbstreit — ‘Who’s that? Is that Paris Hilton’s sibling?’
Who is this Perez Hilton? But she was reading something from like a Hollywood website and I would look at [Lee] Corso and Corso, he would have that old man silence that was loud as hell. So he was sitting there and his silence was like deafening. And I could tell this was working his nerves … She had that Dancing with the Stars thing, that whole Hollywood thing going on, whatever, and we were talking football and she’s in there on that website … I didn’t know what that website was, I thought she was trying to say something about someone who was a relative of Paris Hilton.”
Tell us how you really feel.
For what it’s worth, seeing Lee Corso trying to figure out and discovering who Perez Hilton is would actually make for some quality television.
