For those of you still vying for a chance to date ESPN star Erin Andrews, good news is here for you.

Us Weekly's Justin Ravitz reported last week that Andrews and Gossip Girl star Chace Crawford—also brother-in-law of Dallas Cowboys star quarterback Tony Romo—were caught on a few dates, but word from the star herself is that those initial reports are actually false.

Per Us Weekly:

Chace Crawford has been out on "a couple" dates with Erin Andrews, a source tells Us Weekly. "They're getting to know each other," the source says of the Gossip Girl actor, 26, and the ESPN sportscaster and Dancing with the Stars alum, 34, who have been spotted out and about at events and cozy dinners in NYC.

Andrews told SI.com's Jimmy Traina that she is not dating the television star, so at this point, all that can be said is that the two are not currently hitting the town together.

This isn't the only relationship that has been in question for Andrews, as her tenure at ESPN is in limbo with her currently working off contract.

Nothing has been set in stone yet, but ESPN's public relations rep Josh Krulewitz went on the record back in March, stating that the Worldwide Leader in Sports hopes to keep her around long term:

 

Bogus report about Erin Andrews that people are retweeting. We're hopeful to have her continue with ESPN

The company already lost one of its other prominent female stars in SportsNation's Michelle Beadle, who has officially joined NBC.

ESPN had better hope it can continue to be a match for Andrews, who may be looking for more than one relationship for the time being.
