Jenn Sterger Blasts Deadspin For Blowing Up Brett Favre Sexting Scandal, Comments On Weiner
NEW YORK (WFAN) — Jenn Sterger wants the world to know exactly who’s to blame for leaking last year’s alleged up close and personal pics of Brett Favre.
The former Jets hostess pointed her finger Friday morning directly at A.J. Daulerio and Deadspin.com.
“I don’t remember exactly how it came up,” Sterger told WFAN’s Boomer & Carton. “We somehow got into the subject of people who send lewd photographs. I was just talking to a co-worker as far as I was concerned. I confided in him and he blew that up.”
Sterger said she has no regrets about bringing her predicament up to the Deadspin editor because she “needed advice.”
“I’ve never sat there and pretended to be a victim,” explained Sterger. “If I wanted to blow this up I’d have blown it up two years ago … when I could have used the money because the economy had taken a giant crap.”
But why exactly did she need advice?
“I was told to be quiet, I was told to not say anything. … I was doing what I was told to do and I was a scared girl,” Sterger said. “The people that I spoke with all advised me that if I was not cordial with him, meaning not flirtatious, just cordial with him, I would lose my job, I would be blackballed from the industry.”
Of course, how could Craig Carton not ask Sterger about the ever-growing Anthony Weiner sexting drama.
“I don’t even, haven’t really even followed it,” Sterger said. “It doesn’t impact me, like it has nothing to do with my situation.”
She added: “Having watched what I went through and how the media speculated on so much because I wasn’t speaking, I don’t like to comment on other people’s business.”
According to Sterger, there’s an upside to her decision to come clean — once and for all — about Deadspin’s role in the Favre allegations.
“Hopefully, like I said, grown men can stop talking about other grown men’s junk.”
Sterger hopes the talk turns instead to her new show on Fuel TV, “Hometown Throwdown,” premiering Friday night at 10 p.m.
