Favre's wife cites faith amid scandal

BY foxsports • October 20, 2010

Deanna Favre, wife of Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre, on Thursday declined to discuss the situation involving her husband's alleged propositioning of a Jets employee in 2008 but said her faith would help her deal with with the scandal.

Appearing on "Fox and Friends" to promote her new book, "The Cure for the Chronic Life: Overcoming the Hopelessness That Holds You Back.", she said, "I won't go into anything personal. But faith really is my crutch. It has always been my crutch. It gets me through."

In a separate interview on Good Morning America, Deanna was asked how she's handling the accusations against her husband, who is being investigated by the NFL for allegedly sending suggestive messages and lewd photos to a woman who worked for the New York Jets.

Deanna Favre said: "I'm handling this through faith."

She did not address whether the allegations against her husband are true or false.

Deanna Favre had not made any television appearances or given any interviews since the sports blog Deadspin posted on Oct. 7 a video montage containing voice messages and racy photos that her husband allegedly sent to former New York Jets sideline reporter Jenn Sterger while he played for the team.

The 41-year-old, future Hall of Famer, who has refused to comment on the accusations, met with NFL security on Tuesday to discuss the matter. There has been no official word on an outcome from the meeting.
