The nightmare is behind her and Erin Andrews is ready to play ball again. Or to talk about people playing ball, at least.

In a sit-down with get-getter Oprah Winfrey, Andrews said that she's heading back on the air for ESPN this fall.

Thursday's football game between the University of South Carolina and North Carolina State will be her first sideline-reporting gig since some miscreant surreptitiously shot video of her walking around naked in a hotel room and posted it online last month.

"It's really going to help me heal my wounds," Andrews told Winfrey, whose interview with the 31-year-old who was deemed "America's Sexiest Sportscaster" by Playboy will air Sept. 24 as part of The Oprah Winfrey Show's "Summer Headlines" special.

After the nude footage popped up, Anderson of course had to shoot down rumors that she leaked nude footage of herself for the publicity. She immediately denounced the idea and has promised to take legal action against the perpetrator.

And, she tells Winfrey, she was just as shocked as anybody to see that grainy tape.

"I opened up the computer [and] could feel my heart pounding," Andrews said.


Accidental nudity isn't for us, but we do like our celebs scantily clad, as seen here in our Beach Bodies gallery.
