Jillian Reynolds thinks Erin Andrews is "hot" - TCA Report

Jillian and Grant ReynoldsAfter Monday's Fox Reality panel on the new show Househusbands of Hollywood, I decided to ask Jillian Reynolds about her take on the Erin Andrews peephole fiasco. Her responses surprised me a bit, mainly because she's been in the sports reporting world as much as anyone, but she was still surprised that something like that would ever happen.

"She's gorgeous. People want to look at her. She's hot," says Reynolds. Still, it's no excuse. "This was obviously an inside job; someone knew her schedule. That's kinda creepy. I worked for the NFL for ten years, and I trust everyone there implicitly. And for that trust to be broken is kinda creepy."

When asked if she's ever had that kind of creepy attention, she shook her head. "I never once worried about my privacy being broken in any respect.

"I think we live in a totally different time now," she continued. "A person with a cell phone can be a reporter in the blogosphere. When you're a gorgeous woman like she is, you're going to have creeps and weird hangers-on, and I think that's part of the nature of the business.

She's not surprised at the amount of attention Andrews has gotten. "When you're a beautiful woman, you're always going to get a little more attention. I've seen it in this business for a long time. Let's not code it; that's why they get hired. They have to have the goods to back up the looks. You can't just put a Playboy playmate out there; she'd get torn apart in this business. That's just the way it is.

"(Andrews) happens to be very good at what she does. This is sort of a sad sidebar of the nature of the business and where it's gone. But she'll get over it. You know what, in this day and age, people have had sex tapes and gone onto bigger and better things, so whatever."

After that speedy speech, I turned to Jillian's husband Grant to see if he... um... tends to tune out his wife from time to time and if we're going to see any of that on the show. His response was unbelievably diplomatic:

"She's gorgeous. People want to look at her. She's hot,"

So, I guess she's lucky that she's pretty and some prevert wanted to violate her privacy. Someone invades her personal space and posts it for the world to see, and this idiot's first thought is she's pretty, so it comes with the territory? What a moron!

I think she's more referring to the attention Andrews gets overall, not about the attention she got from the peephole guy. She *did* go on to say that the whole incident was pretty creepy.
