New Dancing With the Stars co-host Erin Andrews is already playing favorites!
Erin and Tom Bergeron revealed the Season 18 cast March 4 on Good Morning America, and she hinted to her favorite contestant when reacting to that star’s intro.
Erin was even more candid when talking to E! News about her transition from Season 10 contestant to Season 18 co-host. E! asked which celeb she was most excited to see in the cast, and Erin didn’t hesitate with her reply — Real Housewives of Atlanta's NeNe Leakes.
"I love that woman," Erin gushed. "I just want to talk everything Housewives with her." Erin said she saw NeNe in the cafeteria the day before and confessed, "I'm kind of obsessed with you." Just a friendly neighborhood stalker!
Erin said she told her boyfriend (L.A. Kings player Jarret Stoll) that NeNe was on the show, and when he asked who else was in the cast, she just repeated her excitement about NeNe. Hopefully she did eventually tell him about the five athletes in the cast, especially Sean Avery, since Jarret may have been interested in hearing about a fellow hockey player.
Erin tweeted a link to the E! article on her NeNe gushing, writing, "True story." So if NeNe and Tony Dovolani win the whole season, no one will be happier than Erin. But who would have her loyalty if it came down to NeNe and Tony vs. Meryl Davis and Erin’s former pro partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy?
Are you equally obsessed with NeNe? If not, who has your vote this season? DWTS Season 18 premieres Monday, March 17 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
