    Erin Andrews' 911 call: 'I'm being treated like I'm Britney Spears'

    By Chris Chase / Y! Sports Blogs

    For years, Erin Andrews has lived in front of the cameras. Now, she wants nothing to do with them.

    Last week, the ESPN reporter called 911 to report two photographers parked outside her house in suburban Atlanta. She described herself as "the girl that was videotaped in my hotel room in the nude" and expressed frustration about being treated like Britney Spears.

    Andrews sounds to be both totally in control and absolutely helpless at the same time. She's exceedingly polite, but peppers her call with profanity. And a few seconds before almost breaking out into tears on the phone, Andrews is playfully telling her mom that she's "totally being obvious" as they're trying to get a license plate number.

    These contradictions are fitting in regards to a story that is full of them. So many people want to make this a black and white issue: Andrews is a victim, she brought it on herself, blame the bloggers, blame the internet, etc. There is no right answer though. There are shades of gray everywhere.

    Just because Andrews cultivated her sex appeal to make her the most popular sideline reporter in America doesn't mean she somehow deserved to get surrepitiously filmed while standing nude in her hotel room. And even though she is calling the police about paparazzi stationed outside of her house, it was just weeks ago that Andrews was openly campaigning for a spot on Dancing With the Stars, a move that would have invited the attention of the photographers she was decrying.

    There's no grand lesson to be learned here or blame that should be passed around. This is yet another in a long line of cautionary tales about the perils of fame. Erin Andrews wanted fame and attention, but on her own terms. Now that it's not, she doesn't seem to know what to do.

    Britney Spears can probably relate.

    And this is why you stay away from masculine looking women, especially the ones who place too much emphasis on their careers. Too many complexes and defense mechanisms to deal with, a walking contradiction. I am urging the internet to develop some taste and stop wasting energy on her.

    Exactly. Because since the boys here at Clutchfans are all in Erin Andrews' potential partner pool, we need to recognize her grotesque character deficiencies and save ourselves from a painful and inevitably failing relationship with her. "Stay away" from Erin Adrews, people.

    We're here to ogle her tatas.
