LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Playboy’s Jenn Sterger (photos below) says the Brett Favre scandal impacted her career. Jenn Sterger’s Brett Favre texting scandal was eventually not resolved in her favor; NFL’s Roger Goodell disputed Sterger’s claims that she received text messages from Favre. Despite demands by Sterger’s reps during the scandal investigation, the NFL failed to even fine nor suspend Favre for texting Goodell ruled did not happen. Rather Favre was fined for not being cooperative during the investigation.
Today, Jenn Sterger tells news that the Favre scandal impacted her career. So why is she still talking about it?
Sterger’s timing throughout the entire Favre scandal has remained unclear. When the case first erupted, Sterger didn’t meet with investigators initially. Collectively the actions of Sterger and Favre, according to ESPN at the time, failed to move the investigation along faster. The story dragged on, and dragged on, the entire NFL season. Sterger didn’t hire an attorney until weeks into the investigation.
“You know, I was trying to go to work. Do my job,” Sterger says in her GMA interview this week “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.”
In fact, Sterger’s reps were constantly talking to the news. Goodell eventually ruled “The forensic analysis could not establish that Favre sent the objectionable photographs to Sterger.”
