As if contending with a camera-happy peeping Tom wasn't enough, ESPN correspondent Erin Andrews is now facing another frightening foe. This time around the blonde beauty, who's currently competing on Dancing with the Stars, is on the receiving end of death threats. The bizarre e-mails started arriving last September after Andrews appeared on The Dan Patrick Show. The e-mails were directed to Patrick. However, Andrews and her people weren't notified about the correspondence until this month when the threats became violent in nature. According to TMZ, the e-mail on March 29, 2010 read, "Dear Dan: I hope Erin Andrews gets murdered in L.A." On March 26, 2010, the psychotic sicko wrote, "I hope she gets shot in the face. I would love to see if she can dance away from a hail of gunfire. That would really make my day." Not to be outdone by the March 14, 2010 e-mail that read, "I would love to get close enough to her to show her my suicide vest." Even more twisted is the fact that the Newport News, Va., man who allegedly sent the e-mails did nothing to hide his identity. Andrews' attorney Marshall Grossman says his client won't be scared back into hiding, "She's not the type to be easily threatened. She has every intention to meet her obligations." Andrews did hire a personal security detail and requested that ABC beef up security on the set. Her other stalker, Michael David Barrett, was sentenced to two and a half years in prison after he posted naked videos of Andrews on the Internet. He had shot the footage through the peephole of her hotel room.
