Jenn Sterger: Favre like “that guy at the bar who just could not get the hint”

Jenn Sterger is speaking out for the first time since the sextenting scandal involving 41-year-old pervball Brett Favre. She appeared on part one of ABC’s Good Morning America’s two-part interview recently and said Favre was like that clueless guy at the bar who won’t take no for an answer.

From USA Today:

“He was like that guy at the bar who just could not get the hint,” Sterger told GMA anchor George Stephanopoulos.

Sterger thought of sexting as more “intimidating” than flattering. She kept putting off her pursuer. But it didn’t work. When she asked several unidentified friends/colleagues for advice, they urged her to stay silent to keep her job with the Jets.

Sterger thought it was all over when she left the Jets for an on-air job with the Versus network’s, The Daily Line, in 2009 and Favre moved over to the Minnesota Vikings. Then broke the story in October, 2010. And Sterger said her world turned completely “upside down.”

She said: “I was trying to go to work. Do my job. But how are you supposed to report on the news when you are the news? It was tough. It was embarrassing. It was humiliating.”

Sterger claims that she never got a dime from Favre or anybody else for the story and I believe her. While it was stupid to confide in one of the editors from Deadspin, I don’t believe she was paid, or paid off during the scandal.

Of course, that doesn’t make her a victim either. I feel bad for her that she can’t land a job and was humiliated, but I think her attention-seeking ways finally caught up to her. I think at first she wanted to be known as the girl that Brett Favre was trying to “get with,” or else why would she have saved the texts and share them with Deadspin? I just think she never expected the story to take off the way it did and now she’s regretting it.

But hey, time heals all wounds. The nice thing about our society is that people have the attention span of a 2-year old. She’ll eventually land another job and she’ll eventually be able to (somewhat) put this behind her. She’ll always be connected to Lord Favre, but it won’t be as bad as it is now, and it definitely won’t be as bad as it was six months ago.

Jenn Sterger suing manager over potential Favre tell-all book

The victim of Brett Favre’s junk mail is in the news again, as former Jets’ employee Jenn Sterger is filing a lawsuit against her manager Phillip Reese. USA Today provides the details.

Brett Favre might want to keep an eye on a lawsuit filed by Jenn Sterger against her manager. At issue is ownership of the text messages allegedly exchanged between Favre and Sterger, which could become the topic of a book.

The lawsuit was first reported by the Tampa Tribune. Sterger is asking a Florida judge to invalidate a book agreement with manager Phillip Reese, who runs a public relations agency in New York. She contends Reese plans to use communications that Sterger received for a book of his own. Reese was unavailable for comment, the Tribune says.

Wait, wait, wait – Sterger’s manager wants to write a book about how Brett Favre texted his wrinkled war stick to his client? What’s the book going to be called, “Diary of an Shriveled Old Penis?”

Sterger claims that she never intended for anyone else to have use of the text and voice messages sent (or allegedly sent) by Favre. But memo to her, if you’re going to talk freely to one of the editors at Deadspin, it’s probably a good idea to leave out how a certain future Hall of Fame quarterback is sending you texts of his rod – especially if you don’t want to go through months of hell afterwards.

But hey, I’m just thinking out loud. You don’t what you want Jenn, you little vixen you.

Sterger may go public with photos of Favre’s junk

Straight out of the “Does anyone really care anymore?” files, the Huffington Post is reporting that Jenn Sterger might reveal the photos that Brett Favre sent her of his junk if the NFL does not punish the Vikings’ quarterback.

TMZ reported on Monday that Sterger’s manager, Phil Reese, said his client provided enough evidence to prove there was harassment.

“No matter what happens Jenn has all legal remedies, including going public … if the NFL doesn’t clear her name,” Reese reportedly said.

The NFL started its investigation of the alleged sexting scandal in October. Favre admitted to sending voicemails to the former TV host, but denied sending inappropriate photos.

Allison Torres, a friend of Sterger, reportedly said she was there when Sterger received the pictures.

Couple of things here:

1. Nobody wants to see Favre’s wrinkled junk mail.

2. Didn’t Deadspin already show the photos? Unless she has photos of him smiling and giving the camera a thumbs-up while holding his crotchel region, then what more is there to show?

And whom does she think she is trying to press the NFL into a corner? They’re not going to bow to her whims and do whatever she asks. They’re the NFL for cryin’ out loud.

She’s got four weeks to try and further her career with this story before Favre retires and then nobody officially cares anymore.
