The 37-year-old sportscaster is suing the Nashville hotel where a man recorded her naked through her peephole and then posted the footage online — where an estimated 16 million people watched it. (RELATED: Erin Andrews Breaks Down On The Stand: ‘Everyone’ Has Seen Me Naked)

While on the stand Tuesday, a lawyer for the Nashville Marriott asked Andrews if her career has “thrived” since the nude video was uploaded.

“Yes,” she replied.

“When you found out about this in July 2009, you were working for ESPN, right?” the lawyer asked.

“Yes,” she said. (RELATED: Erin Andrews Says Nude Peephole Video ‘Ripped Her Apart)

“You got a second contract with ESPN, right? And it was a better contract than you had the first time, right?” the lawyer asked.

“Yes,” she said.

“After that you got a contract with Fox Sports, right? And that was a better contract than you had with your second contract with ESPN, right?” the lawyer asked.

“Yes,” she said.

The lawyer also listed a slew of endorsement deals Andrews has received since the incident, including Reebok, Degree deodorant, Diet Mountain Dew, Florida Orange Juice and Victoria’s Secret.

Andrews is seeking $75 million in damages because she argues the hotel acted negligently. (RELATED: Erin Andrews Is ‘Depressed, Scared And Full Of Anxiety,’ Dad Says)
