Erin Andrews Blasts Relationship Rumors in SI InterviewErin Andrews is squashing rumors that she and her 'Dancing With The Stars' partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy are in "hot romance." Andrews tells Sports Illustrated that she was "shocked" when she saw PEOPLE's latest cover, which says, "Dancing's Erin & Maksim: Their Hot Romance."

"We saw it and said, 'There's no question mark?' According to PEOPLE, our "romance" is official, but PEOPLE must know people because we don't know the people that they know. The thing is, what Maks and I do joking around gets taken seriously," Andrews said. "Our official word is that we thank People for letting us know about this hot romance because we didn't know we had it."

Ironically, SI and PEOPLE are both owned by Time, Inc. Guess the memo got lost between floors.
