Jenn Sterger, long time friend and one-time writer here at NFLGridironGab.com, recounted several examples of awkward exchanges that her immediate family faced in the aftermath of the revelations involving Favre last fall during her two-part interview on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”
“(A) man walked up to my mother that she worked with at one of her schools and asked her what it’s like to have Brett Favre’s grand babies,” an emotional Sterger told ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos.” “What could she say?
“It hurts people that didn’t ask to be involved in my life, and be put in the spotlight. Hurts my family.
“My father gets confronted at neighborhood barbecues because of what his daughter’s dealing with. My sister, who just graduated from nursing school and just got her first nursing job, has to go (to work), and people look at her name badge and people go, ‘Oh, you’re related to Favre girl.’ What’s she supposed to say?”
The interview, the first part of which aired Tuesday, was Sterger’s first public comments on the ordeal.
When asked what she told her parents after the website Deadspin.com broke the story about Favre’s alleged conduct, Sterger said: “That nothing happened. They know that.”
