Bikini-Clad News Babe: Sexy Pix "Purely Platonic"

5/1/2007 5:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The TV reporter who sent NFL Network anchor Rich Eisen revealing snaps of herself in a bikini -- and got an hilariously acidic e-mail response from Eisen's wife (who found them on their shared account) -- says the photos are, you know, just "harmless pictures" that "friends" trade.

Alycia Lane, an anchor at Philadelphia's CBS affiliate KYW-TV, just sent a statement to TMZ saying that she and Eisen have been "purely platonic" friends "for almost 10 years" and that they "regularly exchange e-mail and photos." Including, as Page Six reported, "seven e-mails and several bikini photos" from Lane, which went into the account shared by Eisen and Shuster. Oopsy!

Shuster, in a letter obtained by the Post, hissed back at Lane: "Boy, do you look amazing in a bikini ... congrats! Whatever you're doing, (Pilates? yoga?) keep doing it -- it's working for you ... sorry but those seven e-mails you sent to my husband, Rich, well, oops, they came to the e-mail address we both use from time to time." Ouch -- and Shuster then forwarded Eisen's personal email address, "since you surely are trying so hard to get attention."

KYW-TV tells TMZ it won't be taking any punitive action against Lane. Calls to Eisen and Shuster seeking comment were not immediately returned.

Oh good one you are so tied-down and so miserable    

Scandals like this should not be making news, it hurts families.

I love TMZ!    

The brunette looks a lot older than the wife. If her body is as wrinkled as her face, then she sure didn't need to be sending them in an e-mail, lol!

It is funny how a majority of these posts are blaming Alicia. Sure, she is wrong... but you honestly think some woman, class or not, crazy or not, is just going to send emails w/pics of herself to a "shared" email knowing it could get out...its possible, but unlikely. For all anyone knows, he could have been leading her on, or initiated the emails (he was probably smart enough to delete his emails that he wrote/sent)... maybe the wife and husband were having problems... it could have been anything that provoked this...but I am sure it is wrong doing on both his side, and Alicia's....but i guess nobody will know until one of the two who have all the facts...fesses up.

Yeah, poor misunderstood Alicia. I, too, send bikini-clad photos of myself to married men and can't understand why the wives have a problem with it. EVERYBODY does it.

As the old saying goes, "It must be the money 'cause it ain't his face!" Eisen is one highly unattractive guy with a receding forehead like none I've seen in quite some time. All this fuss over THAT?? Puhleeze...

Wow, how vendictive!    

Okay...STUPID move by the news broad. Which I don't get, cause she's pretty and educated, she could get her own man. The wife handled the situation very well. After finding the pics, most women would have probably checked the outgoing mail, and hacked the passwords on his personal accounts looking for a smoking gun on his part to see if the interest is mutual. I would've been checking for hidden files on the hard drive, letters, anything.

...But judging her response email leaves her findings up in the air. One of two things happed.

a: she found nothing conclusive that would've indicated cheating on his part and therefore let the chick of with a condescending email, or...

b: she DID find proof that he's diddling the news broad and her lawyers haven't finished searching for his hidden assets before they give him his spanking.

Personally, I think he's boning her and she sent the pics on purpose to tick off the wife and drive a wedge between them. Does PA have community property laws?

This guy is bland, nondescript and unattractive. He looks like the pillsbury doughboy. I wouldn't sleep with him if i was homeless and living on a park bench. The anchor is a hundred times better looking than the wife. Why would an anchor risk her career to send revealing photos to a guy she doen't know? She is obviously his mistress.. Wife is a dummy. Just like every other woman who throws her life away on a cheating pig. The wife looks like every other suburban mom you see in a nice other words...bow wow...wouldn't look twice at her or him..

he must have a HUGE....

All of these negative comments aimed at the hottie MILF are being spewed from you overweight, fat assed, bon bon eating, cheesy thighed, non working, welfare getting whores. Now...go get a job, join a gym, get some self esteem and send me your email pix once you look like the hottie MILF.

After further review, I'd still take the "friend" over the wife. Rich is a Michigan and Northwestern alumnus. Smart man who has an obvious eye for talent,,,,,,,,,wellm, except when it comes to his wife. Actually, she's not that bad. She just looked busted and used when compared to the hottie from Philadelphia.

Alicia looks like her face is about to crack, IMHO.
