'Showbiz Tonight' Flashpoint: Do you feel bad for Jenn Sterger?

In our "Showbiz Tonight" meeting today, we couldn't stop talking about the new bombshell confessions from Jenn Sterger.

She's the television host who was allegedly on the receiving end of Brett Favre’s suggestive voicemails and X-rated texts. Just this morning in a tearful interview on “Good Morning America,” Sterger said she wants people to know she's not a gold-digger or a homewrecker.

After hearing Sterger’s side, do you have sympathy for her?

I absolutely feel for her if what she claims is true. She did not ask to be caught up in this scandal, nor did she pursue Brett Favre. It’s unfortunate that so many people, not just Sterger, have been hurt by Favre’s alleged behavior. What do you think? Tell me below.

Some other big stories we’re fired up about on the show today…

Donald Trump takes aim at Bill Cosby, and is it a mistake for Karina Smirnoff of “Dancing with the Stars” to pose in Playboy?

See you live at 5 p.m. ET and 11 p.m. ET/PT on HLN!

Watch Showbiz Tonight Weekdays Exclusively at 11PM ET on HLN.

    Why not give the young lady the benefit-of-doubt and leave her alone. Obviously, she is very attractive and no doubt Mr.
    Favre had eyes for her for whatever reason. Come on people, this is another case of "JOCKS" thinking they can say
    and do anything to anyone and it simply does not matter. She is human, same as most, so back off and let her have a

    She could have deleted the pic and the voicemails. Instead she saved them and (reportedly) shared them with someone else. Do I think she's a 'homewrecker'? Not at all. Any marital problems this caused are all on Favre. He sent the pics and left the messages. But she is paying for her own poor choices.

    Well, sir, there's nothing on earth
    Like a genuine,
    Bona fide,
    What'd I say?
    What's it called?
    That's right! Monorail!
    `Monorail'... `Monorail'... `Monorail'... `Monorail'.... `Monorail'...
    I hear those things are awfully loud...
    It glides as softly as a cloud.
    Is there a chance the track could bend?
    Not on your life, my Hindu friend.
    What about us brain-dead slobs?
    You'll be given cushy jobs.
    Were you sent here by the devil?
    No, good sir, I'm on the level.
    The ring came off my pudding can.
    Take my pen knife, my good man.
    I swear it's Springfield's only choice...
    Throw up your hands and raise your voice!
    What's it called?
    Once again...
    But Main Street's still all cracked and broken...
    Sorry, Mom, the mob has spoken!


    Mono... D'oh!

    Jenn Sterger got everything she has simply because she's hot. Brent Musberger noticed her because she was a hot co-eds, she then got modeling gigs because she's hot and started a website based around her being hot. It's the only reason she has anything. Stop playing the whoa is me card because Brett Farve tried to hook up with you because you're hot. Just go on being hot.

    This story is so over done! On GMA yesterday, they spent more time interviewing her than I've seen them interview world leaders!! Does this really deserve all the attention?? Who really cares.

    She is a lying, goldigging wh***. She sent the messages through a 3rd party to Deadspin so there would be no electronic footprint and is now trying to milk the media. Stop with the 15 minutes already.

    How did that stuff get to DeadSpin? She sent it there. Maybe not directly, but she definately had something to do with it. Besides, if she didnt want all the attention, she wouldve stopped it from the very begining. Right? Shame on Favre for starting the whole mess. But shame on her for allowing it to continue, and get as far as it did. Remember-it takes 2.

    As a huge Favre fan for many years I am certainly disappointed in his behavior. That said how could I possibly feel sorry for someone who bares her chest to 70,000 plus on Sundays? And I'm sorry, but one doesn't go on national television to express humiliation or embarrassment.

    I don't feel sorry for her! How the heck did her personal texts and phone messages get to Deadspin. She did not safe gaurd them! If someone sent me a text I didn't like that person would have got a text back saying "STOP SENDING THIS SH.t! Both her and Favre are idiots!!!

    Don't feel bad for her, but Favre is a totaol doosh. She can take comfort in the fact that she helped create a new word. When somebody shoots you a text of thier junk, you have been Farved.

    This lady is a lot like Inez Sainz. You can't hang around jocks in clothes like that and then act surprised when they pay attention to you. Duh.

    Sterger lied. She doesn't remember what texts SHE sent back to Favre? Really?? What about the one where she asked if this was her boss pranking her? What about the one where she told him to smile at her in the tunnel, not just stare! She lied because she knows she was enjoying the attention and she DID encourage him to continue. If she wanted to DIScourage him, she'd have texted back, "Stop texting me." And she REALLY has no idea how those texts and pics got to Deadspin? Someone had access to her computer, or else it was someone she shared them with. She knows damn well who it was, if it wasn't her or her PR person at the time. I don't feel sorry for her. She brought all of this on herself. She wanted to be in the limelight, and she got it. She is lying.

    Heck no, Why should anyone feel sorry for her. Just look at the way she dresses, she's asking for it! She's a disgrace to women and she IS a Gold Digger!

    She didnt seem sincere at all in her interview! She looks like a fake and acts like one. Im not saying Favre is innocent, but by golly does she portray herself as little red riding hood. I mean look at all her racy photos and the way she acts – im sure she likes the attention.
