ESPN broadcaster Erin Andrews ducked some wild pitches in an Q&A published in the August edition of Vanity Fair.
Off-the-wall questions are not uncommon in “celebrity” interviews. But George Wayne, the knucklehead who interviewed Andrews, threw an exceptionally high quantity of curve balls Andrews’ way.
Picking the oddest is a tough league…but here are two standouts:
Q. Do you have man-size feet like Paris Hilton? You know, she can find shoes to fit her only in the “tranny” section of the shoe store.
A. No, I wear a size-7 shoe, and I am five feet ten inches.
Q. What is the one thing you take when feeling constipated?
A. Are you really going to write about that? I’m not going to comment on that. That is kind of weird and I don’t feel comfortable answering that question. I have gone through so much in the last year.
Andrews handled the oddball questions well enough. She has certainly had her share of publicity lately.
Erin earned ink of the unwelcome kind when some perv sneaked naked photos of her in her hotel room. And she got a lot of positive airtime with her second place finish in “Dancing with the Stars.”
Perhaps Andrews is among those who thinks that all publicity is good publicity — in which case she may be happy with the results of the Vanity Fair interview.
If not — she and her staff (assuming she has one) must shoulder some of the blame for not adequately researching her opponent (Wayne’s) past performance.
Wayne has a history of asking outrageous questions. For example, in 2009 he asked MSNBC host Rachel Maddow if she was sexually turned on by farts. Armed with that kind of scouting report — Andrews might have been well-advised to take a walk before the interview.
