Lisa Guerrero Tells the Story of Getting Fired From Monday Night Football Over Sexy Photo
by Larry Leo
January 26, 202337 Comments
Remember Lisa Guerrero? She was a model turned NFL cheerleader turned actress turned sports host turned Monday Night Football sideline reporter turned sports journalist. Apparently she got fired from MNF after one season, here's why...
Lisa Guerrero had heard the phrase time and time again: “You are the luckiest woman in sports.” But that couldn’t be further from the truth for the former “Monday Night Football” reporter.
In a new excerpt from her memoir, “Warrior: My Path to Being Brave,” [she] detailed how the lead-up to her 2003 debut went off the rails in the wake of a photo shoot.
“I’d done a photo shoot for ‘FHM.’ …This had been a strategic decision to promote my brand and raise my profile while I was at ‘Best Damn’ (‘The Best Damn Sports Show Period’). But when the media got wind of the photos of me clad in black-and-white lingerie, it reinforced their notion that I’d been hired on ‘Monday Night Football’ for all the wrong reasons.”
Guerrero alleged when the Disney execs found out about the shoot, “they were irate,” and claimed that she “wasn’t the image they wanted for their family-friendly broadcast.” Guerrero also felt the “Monday Night Football” executives “really didn’t know what they wanted [her] to be.”
“They feigned shock over the photo shoot … yet after hearing about it, the publicity department tried to negotiate for me to be on the ‘FHM’ cover,” she wrote.
To see my story, told in my own words, in @sportsillustrated is a dream come true…even though this part of my journey reveals the nightmare MNF season I endured in 2003.
A link to the excerpt is in my bio, as is a link to purchase my book which came out yesterday.
Of course my story has a VERY happy ending, but I wrote WARRIOR: My Path to Being Brave in hopes of helping other people get through their own traumatic experiences.
You are not alone and yes, IT DOES GET BETTER.
Thank you to everyone who has helped share my story. #warrior
