Erin Andrews Reveals How She Found Out She Was Fired From 'DWTS'

Erin Andrews revealed how she found out she had been fired as one of the hosts of Dancing with the Stars.

“It was a surprise,” Erin told Extra. “I got a phone call and I answered the phone. I was like, ‘This isn’t good.’”

Tom Bergeron, her co-host, also was let go.

“I text Tom, like once a week… and the dancers as well. That’s a family… I danced on the show and then worked on the show for so many years, I always call it a ‘Dancing with the Stars Mafia’ — once you’re in, it’s really hard to break away. That’s a tight-knit group. Sasha and I will DM. I’ve gotten lovely messages from the dancers and so forth,” she added.

In addition, she’s happy for her replacement, Tyra Banks. “She can nail the smizing and the walking in gowns and heels, so good for her,” she said.
