When the season ended, her job with the Jets wasn't renewed. She later found a TV position on a show called "The Daily Line," and the story remained under wraps for nearly two years -- until Deadspin.com published all the salacious details in August.
"I didn't want it to get out. I had dealt with it the best way I knew how. And it had gone away. And I had moved on," she said. "I was already employed somewhere else. I had a great job. And it was over. The story comes out and it's humiliating. It's like someone punches you in the stomach."
Having the details made public was difficult, fueling negative perceptions of her, she said.
Asked how the blogger got the text, pictures and voicemails, Sterger said she didn't know.
"I have no idea," she said.
She stressed that she did not provide the information to the blogger, and never received any money from the blogger.
"I haven't made a dime off anything in this whole situation. Not from the pictures. Not from Favre. That was never an intention of mine," she said.
The blogger who published the material said he paid $12,000 to a third party for it.
Sterger said she didn't know who sold the information, but acknowledged sharing the texts, voicemails and pictures with "individuals when I was asking for advice. But that's it."
Asked if the idea that one of those people could have betrayed her trust for money hurt her, she replied: "I don't think there's an aspect of this thing that really doesn't hurt."
"It's never been my intention to ever play a victim in this whole thing," she said.
"I just want my life back," Sterger said. "That's all I'm asking for. Just to be able to go back to work. To be able to go back to enjoying what I do. Entertaining people. Making people laugh. The hardest part about this whole thing is that I am a ridiculous person. I love to entertain people, and to say crazy things. And I'm pretty unapologetic about it."
After the incident, Sterger fired her PR representative. She is now represented by Susan Blond.
