Erin Andrews Defends Rolling Her Eyes During Proposal, Calls Out US Weekly


“Dancing With the Stars” host, Erin Andrews, is doing some major damage control today after she was caught rolling her eyes during contestant Noah Galloway’s proposal to his girlfriend, Jamie Boyd.

BC head honcho, Joe, was all over this classic EA moment this morning, noting her “cry face” and desire to walk down that aisle sometime soon. But it wasn’t just Joe who noticed EA’s reaction, US Weekly and her haters were all over this.

EA played off the incident on Twitter, saying her awkward facial expression was made just to combat the possibility of America seeing an ugly cry face:

@usweekly uhhhhh it's called an oh great I'm going to bawl on camera..ugly cry face alert

She added that she was fighting back tears when responding to a critical “DWTS” viewer:

@KimberlyMaher31 oh give me a break…I was holding back tears on natl TV

For what it’s worth, EA’s co-host, Tom Bergeron, has her back:

Have to come to the defense of my pal, @ErinAndrews. This is NOT eye rolling! This is trying not to cry face!
