Erin Andrews is squashing rumors that she and her 'Dancing With The Stars' partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy are in "hot romance." Andrews tells Sports Illustrated that she was "shocked" when she saw PEOPLE's latest cover, which says, "Dancing's Erin & Maksim: Their Hot Romance."
"We saw it and said, 'There's no question mark?' According to PEOPLE, our "romance" is official, but PEOPLE must know people because we don't know the people that they know. The thing is, what Maks and I do joking around gets taken seriously," Andrews said. "Our official word is that we thank People for letting us know about this hot romance because we didn't know we had it."
Ironically, SI and PEOPLE are both owned by Time, Inc. Guess the memo got lost between floors.
According to a press release sent by SI, Andrews jokes, "At some points, it's like we're dating; at others, it's like, oh, we so broke up two days ago. Now it's almost like we're past dating..."
Maks and playfully adds, "Now we're working on a kid!"
Andrews admits when they saw the story, her gut reaction wasn't a good one. "We were like "What?!? That was the biggest joke," she reveals.
