Erin Andrews & Maksim Chmerkovskiy - Maks a Romantic Defender?

The beautiful reporter certainly sang his praises on the Ellen DeGeneres show, calling her handsome dance partner her personal defender. "I've got a Russian on my side that isn't going to let anyone come near me," Andrews said.


They do make a cute couple - but is it only for votes on the show? According to CNN, Ellen wanted the scoop on Erin's possible romantic relationship with "that particular Russian," her partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy.

The daytime talk show sweetheart asked Erin if there is a relationship and if so - is heating up?

Andrews joked, "Depends on what day you get us on." Andrews did get serious as well saying: "[I wanted to] come and be on a show where millions of people watch and just say, 'If you're stalked or a victim of video voyeurism you shouldn't be embarrassed -- you should live your life.'"


Last year, Andrews was the victim of a crime as nude video taken without her knowledge through a peephole was uploaded online for the world to see.

An arrest of the person responsible followed an he is now in jail. However, another person reportedly sent messages and threats about Erin to sportscaster Dan Patrick and that only was revealed once Erin was already competing on DWTS.

A staff member from Patrick's DirecTV show forwarded those along to the police. With another scare, some expected Andrews to quit the show, but she says she won't quit and will continue with her 'Russian defender' protecting her.
