Jenn tells George Stephanopoulos that she may have passed by Brett in stadium tunnels — but she’s never spoken to him!
The NFL says Jenn Sterger never did anything wrong in the Brett Favre texting and sexting scandal, but she has suffered the consequences as her career has stalled. And now she reveals that she never even met the gray-haired quarterback who wanted to be introduced to her!
“I don’t know him, we have never met, there has never been an introduction” she tells George Stephanopoulos on ABC. “We have never been closer than this [gesturing to George, who was seated across from her] — and that’s just been in passing in the tunnel.”
Jenn, then a game-day hostess for the NFL’s New York Jets, compares Brett to a guy at a bar “who wouldn’t get the hint.”
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 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.’ “
