'Dancing With the Stars': Brandy fans lash out at Erin Andrews
After last night's heart-wrenching elimination on "Dancing with the Stars," it seems Bristol Palin isn't the only one fans are blaming. Enter Maks' former partner and (speculated) girlfriend, Erin Andrews.
A week prior to Brandy's exit, the ESPN reporter spoke with MovieLine and implied that though Brandy does have a background in performance, she's no Nicole Scherzinger.
"Brandy is in fact a performer," she says. "Jennifer is a performer. But I mean? The Pussycat Doll? That's a totally different level."
She also comments about Brandy's emotional side, which apparently hit a nerve with fans. "She's even emotional when she gets her scores," Erin jokes. "I can't tell if she's praying or if she's about to pass out." She continues, "just because you win a mirror ball trophy on 'Dancing with the Stars,' it doesn't mean it validates your existence in life."
Immediately following the send-off heard round the world, Erin says she received some not-so-nice tweets courtesy of @4everBrandy followers. Not to worry though, Brandy's got our girl's back.
"Brandy had to call off the hounds and tell everyone to just relax," Erin tells MovieLine on Wednesday (Nov. 17).
Erin defends her previous statements saying, "I wanted her to enjoy the experience for what it is. It doesn't matter if you win the mirrorball trophy or not. It's about having the best experience and making the most of the journey. But oh my goodness, I didn't know that was such a terrible thing to say."
She continues, "and now I'm getting blamed for her losing as well!"
One rabid fan even got a re-tweet from Ms. Andrews, saying "you are the worst thing thats ever happened to @MaksimC.....go away Bad Luck Charm!" To which she replied, "Its a TV show..get a grip!"
As for Maks, after the show he tweeted, "WOW! What can I say? If this is a test, I'm failing it... Was raised in a very 'justice driven' household & see no justice in 'DWTS'.... Sorry @4everBrandy if I failed US. You were AMAZING tonight and always!"
All this DWTS drama is really starting to make us sweat!
