Are you Kidding Me?

The Erin Andrews peephole case took a strange twist when local Nashville TV stations got a tip that representative for the ownership group of the Marriott Nashville at Vanderbilt played the peephole video of Andrews at his dinner table Tuesday night.

 WSMV got a tip from a restaurant employee that Neal Peskind, who’s representing the Hotel Partners in the ongoing civil trial played the video on his phone while at a Nashville restaurant with his two friends.

WSMV asked Peskind about it:

After he had time to think about the questions, Peskin came up with this answer in a statement to WSMV:

I was at a private dinner meeting with friends. They brought up the allegations and they started viewing the video. I asked them to stop, and while they did so, it was not as quickly as I had hoped. This incident has been blown into something it was not. I would never disrespect Ms. Andrews and what she has been through. This is a very unfortunate situation that should not be a reflection on West End Hotel Partners or to our commitment to the issues in this case surrounding what happened to her. I sincerely apologize for my participation in what happened.
