Erin Andrews not dating Chace Crawford of 'Gossip Girl'
Erin Andrews, a popular ESPN reporter and former "Dancing With The Stars" finalist, is not dating "Gossip Girl" star Chace Crawford, despite recent reports.
Us Weekly had said Andrews, 34, and the 26-year-old actor have had "a couple" of dates and have been "spotted out and about at events and cozy dinners" in New York City, where the CW series is filmed.
"Would be more interesting if it was true," Andrews' spokesperson, Lewis Kay, said in response to the magazine's report in a Twitter message, which the ESPN reporter reposted.
The two participated in satellite provider DIRECTV's annual Celebrity Beach Bowl game in February, along with stars such as Candice Accola and Nina Dobrev, who star in the drama series "The Vampire Diaries," which also airs on the CW.

Other celebrities who took part in the game were rapper Snoop Dogg, soccer star Hope Solo and actor David Arquette. The latter two stars have competed on the ABC reality show "Dancing With The Stars." Andrews placed third on the series in 2010 with partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy.
Crawford plays New York socialite Nate Archibald on "Gossip Girl." The show's season 5 finale aired last week. The series has been renewed for a sixth, shortened season. Crawford also stars in the romantic comedy movie "What To Expect When You're Expecting," which was released on May 18. Both he and Andrews, who does not appear in the film, attended the premiere in New York City earlier this month but were not photographed together. Crawford brought his mother, Dana, to the Los Angeles premiere.
