Former New York Jets game hostess Jenn Sterger, who allegedly received inappropriate photos and phone messages from former Jets QB Brett Favre, broke her silence this week with an interview on ABC News with George Stephanopoulos.
“I haven’t made a dime off anything in this whole situation,” Sterger said. “Not from the pictures. Not from Favre. I never wanted to sue anyone. That was never an intention of mine. I’m not a gold digger. The only way I wanted to make my money this whole time was to just have a job.”
“You know, I was trying to go to work. Do my job,” Sterger told ABC. “But how are you supposed to report on the news when you are the news? It was tough. It was embarrassing. It was humiliating. All I wanted to do was go to work. Do my job. That’s all I wanted.”
Sterger said she doesn’t know how Favre got her phone number.
The NFL fined Favre this season $50,000 for failing to cooperate with its investigation.
“I was approached one day at the beginning of the preseason 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?’ ” Sterger said. “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.’ ”
