April 12, 2011 — -- Jenn Sterger, the former New York Jets game day hostess who was at the center of the Brett Favre sexting scandal, says she's never met the three-time NFL MVP who allegedly sent her sexually suggestive texts, voicemails and photos.

Sterger, who talked candidly about the scandal during an exclusive interview with George Stephanopoulos that aired on "Good Morning America" today, said she doesn't know Favre personally -- and has no plans to do so.

"I've never met him. We've never met," she said, adding that the closest she's been to him was when they would pass each other in the tunnels at the New Meadowlands Stadium in New Jersey.

That they never met wasn't for lack on trying on Favre's part, Sterger said. "He was like that guy at the bar that just could not get the hint ...," she said.

Website Exposes 'Sext' Messages

Favre, a married father of two, has one of the most storied careers in football, but his career was overshadowed by scandal in October when the sports blog posted voicemails and nude pictures Favre allegedly sent to Sterger when he played for the Jets in 2008.

Favre has admitted to leaving the voicemails but not to sending inappropriate pictures of himself.

"Wanted to have you come over tonight -- love to see you tonight," one recording said.

And another voicemail:

"I'm still trying, just got done with practice. I'll try the other phone you're probably caller ID'ing me but if you can make it, it would be great."

"I didn't want anything to do with it. That's the thing," Sterger said. "I didn't want anything to do with it in 2008, I (didn't) want anything to do with it in 2010. I still don't want anything to do with it now. The only reason I feel like I have to give this interview is ... for me. For my family. This has nothing to do with Brett Favre. It doesn't. I just want people to know me. And to know that I'm not a gold-digger. And I'm not a home-wrecker."

The NFL said it "could not conclude" that Favre sent the messages, but fined him $50,000 in December and issued a reprimand. According to the league, Favre had not been "candid in several respects during the investigation, resulting in a longer review and additional negative public attention."
