OK- I am following the story only peripherally but my understanding is that in 2008 Brett was having an e-affair (or t-affair if its text messages?) with some chick, sending her hot messages and maybe pictures. She wasn't interested and that was that.
Now, two years later, suddenly it is really bothering her and she decides to out him publically?
If this really bothered her back then, why wait to complain? Why not tell him at the time that she's not cool with it? I don't understand these situations where women come forward years later to either complain about sexual inappropriateness or announce their involvement with a celebrity. She could have outed him at the time and then she would be believable. But right now, I don't understand why he has to explain anything to anyone. What he does in his personal life is not my business and I don't really care.
Did he really do something wrong? Or is she a jilted lover? Or does she need money? Should we even care?
If he really harrassed her or made her unable to work, she should have reported it two years ago.
GR- I would like you to ask Repairmom, what does she think about Brett Favre and also women who wait two years (or more) to complain about mistreatment from celebrities?
Sounds to me (though I haven't been following this story so I don't know the details) like she is either making it up entirely or is just after the publicity and money. I don't really get it either, like you said why the hell wait two years if this is really such a big deal to you. I only caught the end of the story on GMA this morning and they were all scoffing about how awful what he had done was. Well if what you say is correct and it was just some text messages, how is that so awful. I'm not condoning sexual harrassment in any way, shape or form, if that's in fact what happened, but it certainly looks distinctly dodgy to me.
@Jaded I'll ask the parental unit.
Also as a tidbit of info, he's a grandpa, he's out trolling for ass when he's got a wife, daughters, and grandkid. Gross. If its sexually harrassment, I hope his ass gets nailed to the wall. If its not, well I hope his wife nails his ass to wall and takes all his money from football and those ridiculous Wrangler jeans ads.
I also find it interesting that this came out the week the Vikings play the Jets.
John didn't know if you saw it, but I sent you a response (personal message) to the grant question you had from yesterday.
He may be a husband and father but I really can't judge someone else for maybe having a crush on someone else or falling for someone else in their lifetime when they are married. It happens to A LOT of people. Who are we to judge another person for being human and for not being the perfect person? He will make mistakes just like the rest of us. it doesn't sound like he was out trolling. It sounds like he got emotionally attached to this woman for a short period of time. If he was trolling, 6 or 7 other women would have emerged right about now.
We don't know that maybe his marriage at the time was on the verge of divorce and he felt free to start exploring other relationships? Or maybe he found out his wife was cheating and was all screwed up mentally and acted irrationally? The truth is that we have no idea. His wife might have already known all about this woman. As a couple, they may have already worked out their issues. What goes on in someone else's marriage is no business of mine.
But here comes this woman, two years after the fact, attempting to humiliate someone else at the end of a decorated career. What's the point?
Seems to me that if there was only ever one time in his life where he strayed from his marriage, he's probably doing better than most.
Difference is, you and me, we don't have to worry about years later some person coming forward who saved all our texts and emails and putting them on national television.
You are right Jade Ed and I'll give Favre one thing, he's never been a preachy dude. In fact he has been pretty humble and quiet about his previous drug and alcohol issues, I think just wanting to put some distance between it and himself. Who knows maybe things were going sour at home, Lord knows they are going sour on the field for him (with the exception of last night's game).
I am sure with the drama, he's not going to play well. As a celebrity, and a man, you have to expect every liaison that you have with a woman is potentially going to come back to haunt you later. So he wasn't too smart about it. Which is a good thing because it means that he wasn't trying to be sneaky. He probably trusted this woman and thought she was into him too.
No man is going to keep sending you sexy text messages back if you are not responding positively.
And being a grandpa doesn't mean you don't think about sex anymore or that you shouldn't. I know quite a few older men that are as sexually minded as young ones except now they are just more open and flirtatious. I have freakin' 60-65 year olds flirting me all the time at one particular place I hang out. Now if they only had Brett's abs, they might have half a chance.. :-)
All I know is that his wife looks an awful lot like Jenn Sterger. So much so that its a bit creepy.
I had to google image it to see because I hadn't seen her picture. Holy cow, you are right- they could be sisters.
I hope someone asks her why she's coming forward now. I hope his wife sticks by him.
If it is one time, then I wouldn't let a younger, opportunistic, obviously jealous female break my marriage apart. That's what she wants to see happen, I am sure.
When Kobe got into trouble over the Colorado incident and his wife stayed with him (OK- a $4 million dollar diamond ring helped), I gave her kudos for that. He hasn't been in trouble again.
From what I've read*, Deanna Favre has a book and in that book said she once considered leaving Brett due to his philandering ways. So this may not be the first time he's been caught being a dog. A friend of mine said that she feels no sympathy for these women who marry professional athletes because in the inner circles (she worked marketing for a professional sports team) its well-known that these men sleep around like crazy and it's impossible for their wives NOT to know.
*Not her book, but "reliable" intertubez sources. Take it all with a grain of salt.
Maybe they all fool around on the road and do so frequently. I can imagine the temptation is constant.
I still don't get why this woman waited two years to complain about being sexually harrassed. Doesn't make sense.
