ESPN correspondent Erin Andrews said she won’t let threats stop her from performing on ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars.”
“I don’t quit on things. It’s not an option for me,” Andrews told People magazine.
Andrews, who has recently received death threats against her,Â said she is committed to the show and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy.
“I’m glad I’m here. I have a dance on Monday and I don’t want to let Maks down, I don’t want to let my family down, and I don’t want to let myself down,” Andrews said. “I’m not going to stop living my life.”
ABC officials haveÂ heightened security around the set, according to an Entertainment Weekly report.
Andrews will perform the waltz on Monday’s live performance of “Dancing with the Stars,” which airs at 8 p.m. (ET) on ABC.Â Â AndrewsÂ said herÂ time on the dance floor has been therapeutic.
Andrews also recently had to deal with a man, Michael David Barrett, who filmed her through the peephole of her hotel room door and posted the video online.Â BarrettÂ received a 2 1/2-year prison term and was ordered to pay $7,366 in restitution to Andrews.
