Jenn Sterger, the former New York Jets employee who accused Brett Favre of sending her racy text messages, has something to say: She's "not a gold-digger." "I haven't made a dime off anything in this whole situation," she tells ABC News in an interview airing on Good Morning America and Nightline tomorrow. "Not from the pictures. Not from Favre. I never wanted to sue anyone. That was never an intention of mine."

She says she doesn't know how Favre got her phone number, adding that when she was approached by someone wearing a Jets employee badge and asked how she would feel if Favre wanted her number, she "just looked at him, my usual smartass self" and said, "I'd say I like my job an awful lot. And I've been told I look remarkably like his wife." She left without giving out her number. After the scandal broke, "it was tough. It was embarrassing. It was humiliating," she says. "All I wanted to do was go to work. Do my job." (Read more Jenn Sterger stories.)
