April 10, 2011— -- Jenn Sterger, the former New York Jets game-day hostess and model who was embroiled in a tabloid scandal after racy photos and voicemails allegedly from NFL quarterback Brett Favre surfaced, told ABC News' George Stephanopoulos in an exclusive "Good Morning America" interview that she just wanted to do her job.

"I haven't made a dime off anything in this whole situation. Not from the pictures. Not from Favre. I never wanted to sue anyone. That was never an intention of mine," she said.

"I'm not a gold-digger," she said. "The only way I wanted to make my money this whole time was to just have a job."

Watch the exclusive interview Tuesday and Wednesday on "Good Morning America" at 7 a.m. ET and Tuesday night on "Nightline" at 11:35 p.m. ET.

Favre has one of the most storied careers in football -- a three-time MVP with more than $7 million in endorsements -- but he became known for more than his playing in October 2010, 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."
