Present “internal version” In her new memoir, the investigative journalist revealed, “warrior,” that she once had a miscarriage while covering a match on live TV, according to the people.

Back in 2003, Guerrero worked on the sidelines “Monday Night Football” for one season. It was a difficult time, she writes, in part because she had to deal with what she calls “the ugly misogyny spreading across sports radio—and I was their perfect target.”

Guerrero said she was attacked for her clothes, her long hair, and even for wearing red nail polish. Adding to the difficulty, she discovered that the reason she hadn’t had a period since starting working on MNF wasn’t due to stress – she was pregnant.

Guerrero said she and her then-husband, Scott Erickson, agreed years ago that they didn’t want children, but they admit to “fantasizing” about what their child might look like.

But one night while she was working on a game, she said she “felt dampness” between her legs. At first, she thought she had just come on before she remembered she was pregnant.

“I had a miscarriage! I felt the blood seep out,” she wrote in the book.

Guerrero told her assistant she was going to the bathroom and he told her, “They’re about to throw you.” After I made the live report, so was she Dizziness and nausea “But I reminded myself to stand up straight.” She said the pain was excruciating.

“I heard myself misspelling the player’s name and knew I was going to hear about him later,” Guerrero said. “Once I was done, I raced to meet a trainer. Then I headed to the bathroom. As I sat on the toilet, I couldn’t believe the blood gushing out of me. I soaked my pants. I shoved a bunch of paper towels into my underwear.”

Guerrero admitted that it never occurred to her to tell someone she had a medical emergency or that she should have gone to the hospital instead of playing the game.

“The only thought I had was that I could get through the rest of the game as long as I had my long winter coat on. That way, no one would see the blood.

After the match, Guerrero decided not to return Production van to talk to producers.

Instead, I headed to the plane. In the bathroom [on board]I changed my clothes and threw my underwear and my panties into the trash.” “I looked in the mirror and did not recognize the pale, thin, frightened, and very tired woman who stared at me again.”

Guerrero faced a lot of criticism when she started on “Monday Night Football” with commentator Keith Olbermann proposal at that time that announcers John Madden and Al Michaels had quit in protest of her hiring.

“I was terrified,” Guerrero said. New York Post in 2021. “Maybe people at home viewed her as ‘scared of the job. She dreaded “Monday Night Football.” I wasn’t afraid of the job. I was afraid of [executive producer Fred Gaudelli]. I was afraid that he would yell at me after every match and during the match. I cried at every game. It was awful.”
