Erin Andrews is not “convinced” Vanessa Lachey is “gunning” for her “Dancing With The Stars” hosting job, nor does she hope the star is eliminated from the show as soon as possible, despite a bogus tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this claim. We’re told it’s “untrue.”

The bizarre report comes from the latest issue of Star, which blares in a new headline, “Is Vanessa Gunning For Erin’s Job?” In the accompanying story, the magazine ridiculously asserts that Lachey, a current contestant on the show, wants to replace Andrews as co-host of the reality series, leaving the NFL sportscaster concerned over the future of her “DWTS” gig. A so-called “source” tells the outlet, “Erin wants Vanessa out of there as quickly as possible. She’s worried that the longer Vanessa’s around, the more time she has to network and work her magic.”

The publication’s dubious “insider” goes on to purport, “There’s no denying there’s a history of contestants going on to host,” adding, “Erin is well aware of how these things work, it’s out with the old and in with the new.” Gossip Cop, however, understandably dubious of the tabloid’s most recent claim, investigated into the report, and it comes as no surprise that the article is entirely false.

A source close to Andrews assures Gossip Cop the story is 100 percent “untrue,” as her co-hosting gig is completely secure. What’s more, while the former “Entertainment Tonight” correspondent is doing well on this season of “Dancing With The Stars” so far, receiving 21 out of 30 points for her cha cha on last week’s show, Lachey is only looking to score the Mirrorball trophy, not a hosting gig. The report is nothing more than a fabrication.
