Jenn sits down with Nightline to discuss how the Brett scandal affected her personal, and professional, life.
Football season may be over and Brett Favre may have officially retired, but his texting and sexting scandal lives on, this time as former New York Jets sideline reporter Jenn Sterger sits down with George Stephanopoulos to discuss what it was like being at the center of a media firestorm. Jenn said of reports she had hoped to capitalize off Brett’s lewd texts and images simply said: “I’m not a gold-digger. The only way I wanted to make my money this whole time was to just have a job.”
Brett, 41, was accused of sending suggestive texts as well as photos of his penis to Jenn back in 2008 while he was a member of the New York Jets. Jenn claims to have no idea how he obtained her number, though she does admit that on member of the Jets organization approached her at one time regarding Brett.
“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?’ 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.’ “
