(Newser) – ESPN reporter Erin Andrews tells Oprah Winfrey that having secretly videotaped nude footage of her distributed on the Internet was a "nightmare." In an interview taped last week and scheduled to air Sept. 11 on The Oprah Winfrey Show, Andrews also tells Winfrey she "opened up the computer (and) could feel my heart pounding."

Andrews' attorney has said the blurry 5-minute video was shot at a hotel without her knowledge and she plans to seek criminal charges and sue whoever shot the video and anyone who publishes it.The reporter also says returning to work this fall will "help me heal my wounds."
