Jenn Sterger calls Brett Favre incident "humiliating" [UPDATE: VIDEO]

Categories: Brett Favre
Sterger is now suing her former manager, but not Brett Favre.
Jenn Sterger kept her silence about the Brett Favre sexting scandal for months, but she's talking now, and saying the firestorm of publicity over Favre's unwanted advances was humiliating and embarrassing.

"I haven't made a dime off anything in this whole situation. Not from the pictures. Not from Favre. I never wanted to sue anyone," she told ABC News. "I'm not a gold-digger."

She talked to George Stephanopoulos, adding that Favre began contacting her after a Jets employee gave the quarterback her phone number.

Deanna Favre on GMA last year. Sterger thinks they look a lot alike.
"I was approached one day at the beginning of the pre-season games by a man wearing a Jets badge, employee badge, who asked me, 'How would you feel if Brett Favre asked for your phone number? What would you say?' And I just looked at him, my usual smartass self. And I said, 'I'd say I like my job an awful lot. And I've been told I look remarkably like his wife,'" said Sterger. She said she walked away without giving the man her number and thought "that was the end of it."

Staerger calls the Favre scandal humiliating.
Deadspin broke the Favre story last year, publishing text messages and nude crotch shots that it said Favre sent to Sterger when he was the New York Jets quarterback and she was the team's sideline host in 2008. The story dogged Favre through the end of his final, disastrous season with the Vikings. In the end he admitted sending the text messages, but not the photos. And the NFL slapped him on the wrist with a $50,000 fine for stonewalling its investigation into the matter.

After working for the Jets, Sterger went on to host the Versus cable network's "Daily Line" show, but the show was canceled last October, supposedly over poor ratings. She's never filed a lawsuit against Favre, but she's now suing her former manager Phil Reese, whom she says refuses to return evidence from the sexting scandal. The two had planned a book about her ordeal, but she's evidently backing away from the gambit.

UPDATE: ABC has posted a short promo clip of the interview. Watch:

I had forgotten about it until she said something to the Press, again.


Humiliating? As opposed to having Brett Mussberger drool all over her at a FSU game, having the world handed to her (unqualified) hands and then (figuratively) blowing her big chance by being an unmanageable beauty-diva. All of this was well before her 'encounter' with Farve. Which you also mis-managed by pretending to be bigger than the humiliation of having a 40 year-old has been hit on you. How many chances do you think you get? Get over it Jenn, your 15 minutes was over long ago.........


The absolute worst part of this story is that Brett Favre is SO F*(%ing stupid that he wants to cheat on his wife...

with women who look just like his wife...

Infidelity: You're doin' it wrong!


Does anyone care anymore? Old news, Favre sucks, end of story.


She's the one who went to the press about it. She's the one who blew some pics of a famous guy's dick way out of proportion (hehe). She's the one who's STILL talking to the press. She's being a media whore, humiliating herself.


Watched video. She's an even bigger hypocritical whore than before. She sounds like she's fishing for another reality show.
