Erin Andrews is still haunted by her nude video leak.
In 2009, a stalker removed the peephole from the former sportscaster’s hotel room and stood in the hallway and filmed her for several minutes while she was naked.
Now, Andrews considers that ordeal the most difficult part of her career.
“I’m not sure it will ever be entirely over for me, but it was my stalking incident,” Andrews said during an interview with Redbook. “What made that experience even more horrible was that a lot of people just looked at it as a joke — like I pursued litigation to become famous.”
“It’s proved to me how strong I am. I couldn’t pretend like it wasn’t a big deal. It was.” (PHOTOS: Jennifer Aniston Inspired Selena Gomez’s Nude Album Cover)
But the 37-year-old said she’s hopeful about her future, and wants to become a wife and mother one day.
“I happen to be one of those women who thinks it is possible to have it all. All of my friends from college and high school have three kids now. I’m not even engaged!” (RELATED: Why Did Erin Andrews Look SO Annoyed About The ‘Dancing With The Stars’ Engagement?)
“I hope to have that, but look at what I’ve done: I’ve hopefully had a hand in opening the door for other women. I believe family is the next step.” (PHOTOS: Nude Photos Of Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton Released In Huge Leak)
