Erin Andrews made her first public appearance since her court case triumph, stopping by Jimmy Kimmel Live on Wednesday night.
The Fox Sports reporter and Dancing With the Stars co-host was awarded $55 million on Monday in her lawsuit against a stalker who bought a hotel room next to her and secretly recorded a nude video of her, finding that the hotel companies and the stalker shared in the blame.
“This is kind of my come-out of hiding!” Andrews told Kimmel, who asked her for a million dollars.
“I want to thank everybody,” she said. “There were so many people that reached out [from] all over the world, actually. So supportive.”
Kimmel then noted such negative incidents can bring out “the nice part of the Internet,” to which Andrews responded, “Is there a nice part? … You’re so right.”
Andrews also recalled her own season competing on Dancing With the Stars, on which Kimmel regularly places bets. Therefore, the co-host shared her “gossip” on the upcoming season, and who she thinks might win.
