Katherine Webb, perhaps the most famous girlfriend in the history of college football, made an appearance on the Today show on Wednesday morning and in an interview with Matt Lauer, and among other things, says she believes that no apology was necessary from ESPN for what some perceived as inappropriate comments made by Brent Musburger during the broadcast of the national championship game between Alabama and Notre Dame on Monday night. Webb says she had little idea that she was the spark igniting a firestorm online as cameras focused upon her as she sat in the stands and watched boyfriend AJ McCarron and his Crimson Tide teammates obliterate the Fighting Irish, but now that she has learned that she was the object of Musburger’s admiration, she is more “flattered by the attention” than anything and that Musburger’s comments did not rise to the level of disrespectful, nor did those comments require ESPN to apologize, something the network did via a statement issued on Tuesday. Webb, when discussing her reaction to Musburger’s comments about her as well as AJ McCarron’s mother, told Lauer: “I think the media’s been unfair to him. If he would have said something along the lines of we were hot or sexy or made any derogatory statements like that, I think it would have been a little bit different. The fact he said we were both beautiful and gorgeous, I don’t see why any woman wouldn’t be flattered by that. So, I think that they’ve been unfair to him.” Lauer followed up, asking Webb, “So no reason for ESPN to apologize in your opinion?” Webb doesn’t believe so, saying, “You know I don’t think it was needed, honestly. I mean, of course I appreciate it but at the same I don’t think I needed an apology.” TweetThe post Katherine Webb appears on ‘Today,’ says she’s ‘flattered’ by Musburger’s comments (video) appeared first on Sportress of Blogitude.
