Smackdown before Super Bowl! Chrissy Teigen rushed to defend her close pal Erin Andrews on Sunday, Jan. 18, after actress Katie Cassidy questioned the Fox Sports sideline reporter's skills during the Seattle Seahawks/Green Bay Packers game.

Cassidy's Arrow costar Stephen Amell first mentioned Andrews, 36, who had wrapped up her interview with Seahawks' star cornerback Richard Sherman. The player, who memorably made headlines in 2014 for his bizarre sideline chat with Andrews, had stayed on the field despite an elbow injury.

Cassidy then responded to Amell's tweet and lodged a complaint against the Fox Sports reporter.

Andrews' close pal, supermodel Teigen (with whom she vacations and tweets frequently), then interjected herself into the social media conversation, which was garnering attention at that point.

While Andrews remained silent throughout the conversation, the back and forth between Cassidy, 28, and Teigen, 29, escalated from that point on.

Cassidy's last comment prompted Teigen to turn the tables back on her new opponent. "Own it," John Legend's wife tweeted directly to Cassidy. "I'll take you seriously when you don't simultaneously talk s— and preach the gospel."

In return, Cassidy called out Teigen. "I'm sorry u have negativity inside u," the Gossip Girl alum wrote to the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model. "Can't be healthy. 2 be clear, not s— talking. But interesting u took it that way."

Interestingly enough, Andrews is currently dating Los Angeles Kings hunk Jarret Stoll, whom Cassidy briefly dated back in 2010. There was no overlap, however, as Andrews and Stoll started dating in 2012.
