Last week, Hasselbeck insulted Andrews‘ skimpy ‘DWTS’ costumes in light of the peephole stalker who posted a nude video of her (he is now serving a 2 1/2-year prison term). The next day, Hasselbeck tearfully apologized to Andrews on ‘The View,’ saying that her 5-year-old daughter, Grace, told her to just call Andrews, “and I followed her advice,” Hasselbeck said.
But Andrews told UsMagazine.com at Monday night’s ‘DWTS’: “I didn’t speak with her, no. I never talked to her.”
The ESPN reporter, 32, says she’s “dealt with” Hasselbeck’s remarks. “I’m moving on,” she told Us. “I’m tired of talking about it. It’s a new week.”
Still, she admits she was pleased that partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy had her back. (Chmerkovskiy defended her: “I’m the one designing [Andrews'] dresses for the show, so I’ll just assume that [Hasselbeck] is jealous… and stupid….”)
“It was really nice to have Maks stick up for me and the entire cast and a lot of the media,” says Andrews, who got a 53 out of 60 for her Argentine tango and ’80s rumba. “We got a ton of support.”
Cheering on Chmerkovskiy and Andrews from the audience Monday night: Tony Dovolani, who was voted off along with his partner Kate Gosselin on April 20. “I have to vote for Maks and Erin!” Dovolani was overheard telling an audience member.
Also rejoining the ‘DWTS’ cast: Kim Kardashian, who Twittered photos of herself with Evan Lysacek and Vera Wang, the designer of Lysacek’s Olympic ice skating costumes. “I miss this place!” Kardashian — who competed with Mark Ballas in 2008 –Twittered of the ballroom.
Niecy Nash and Louis van Amstel earned the lowest scores of the night, 43 out of 60 for their Viennese waltz and ’90s paso doble.
Nash told Us, “Compared to a lot of people who are left, I’m the least trained, and actually — I’m the oldest! I’m the last mother left standing! I might not have a litter of kids like Kate Gosselin, but I’m still standing!”
