No hard feelings. Erin Andrews‘ journey on Dancing With the Stars may be over — but the sportscaster still speaks to several pros.
“I have texted Maks [Chmerkovskiy] a little bit here and there. Obviously with everything happening in Ukraine, I had reached out to him,” Andrews, 44, exclusively told Us Weekly on Wednesday, January 25, while promoting her partnership with Dr. Scholl’s.

She continued: “I had reached out to Val [Chmerkovskiy]. Val just had a baby [with Jenna Johnson], so I texted him the other day that I loved him and congrats and things like that.”

When it comes to Bergeron, 67, Andrews teased that she’s been slacking on communication. “Actually, I owe him a text message. So, Tom, if you see this, I owe you a text message and I promise once Super Bowl is over, I will reach out,” she joked on Wednesday.
Despite her abrupt departure from DWTS, Andrews is still left with “fond memories” from her time on the show.
“I mean, my relationship with Tom and those dancers [continues]. And I love the performing arts so absolutely [I remember DWTS fondly]. But I have not had a chance to see it at all,” she revealed to Us. “I’m still trying to catch up on White Lotus. We’re waiting for Succession to come out.
