First she was secretly videotaped in the nude, now ESPN's Erin Andrews has been the target of death threats sent via e-mail, according to an AP report published on cbs2. Andrews' attorney, Marshall Grossman, reveals the blonde sports reporter and current "Dancing With the Stars" contestant has been getting sexually explicit and threatening e-mails since September. The e-mails reference Andrews' convicted secret video-taper, Michael David Barrett, and include details about where and how the author would commit murder. Grossman says the FBI has been made aware of the threats; Andrews does not plan to leave DWTS, but "has asked ABC to beef up its security" for the show.
