Erin’s nude video nightmare
Thu., Sept. 3, 2009
ESPN reporter Erin Andrews tells talk-show host Oprah Winfrey that having secretly videotaped nude footage of her distributed on the Internet was a “nightmare.”
Winfrey’s interview with Andrews will air Sept. 11, as part of a “Summer Headlines” show that previews the 24th season of “The Oprah Winfrey Show.” Andrews also tells Winfrey she “opened up the computer (and) could feel my heart pounding.”
Andrews’ attorney has said the blurry five-minute video was shot at a hotel without her knowledge, and she plans to seek criminal charges and file lawsuits against whoever shot the video and anyone who publishes it.
