Desmond Howard Says Working With Erin Andrews Was Very Hollywood
Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports
James Andrew Miller talked with Desmond Howard about the origins of ESPN's College GameDay and the success it's had. During that conversation Howard talked about what it was like working with Erin Andrews, who was with he program from 2010-12. Sounds a little annoying...
quote:

“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.

If anybody has seen or heard Andrews in any capacity outside of her job, it's painfully obviously she's a complete bitch and just an all around horrible, self-absorbed, self-important jerk.

Wow, a woman seeking fame and making a name for herself by using football amnd sports as the gateway. My shocked face. What did he think she was there for? For football?

I’ll never get the obsession with Erin Andrews. Jokes aside, I really have seen better walking across the quad.

Desmond Howard's language use is impressive for a sports guy

Well, to be fair, his whole quote could have been shortened by 2/3. It’s like the writer was trying to point out how repetitive he was, but it just makes the writer look bad to me, honestly.

Desmond Howard needs to go back to a college writing class. I didn’t get the point of what he’s saying, other than he was just upset she was looking up something that wasn’t football related.

He didn't write that you dolt. He was reflecting upon the experience during a conversation. Man you're a special kind of stupid.
