    I'm going to take a stab that I'm posting this in the right area, and prechecked to see that there isn't a thread already on this,..BUT..

    I've been wondering how Deanna is taking all this latest controversy, and googled her name.
    This article popped up first.
    I'm going to set the DVR for sure!

    More from C.J.

    Deanna Favre is scheduled to make appearances on ABC's "Good Morning America" and "FOX & Friends" Thursday morning, two days after NFL investigators met with her husband over a "sexting scandal."
    It is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and the wife of Vikings QB Brett Favre is a breast cancer survivor.
    Don't expect her to back out because her husband hasn't exactly been avoiding media mics these days, even though he hasn't answered questions foremost on our minds: Did you send photos of your privates to Jenn Sterger? Are you really such a publicity hound that you wouldn't have just say It's not true! to these allegations weeks ago, thus stopping the erosion of your image? If these charges were true, why didn't you pay for Sterger's silence before jumping on a private plane back to Minnesota for the 2010 season?
    The morning show interviews will be a success if these questions are at least thrown in the direction of Mrs. Favre: When did Brett apprise you that his name might come up in a sexting scandal? Did you accompany Brett to his interview with NFL investigators? Has the NFL asked its QB to drop trou? Has she looked at the photos on Deadspin.com? Has Brett ever "sexted" you?
    In her book "Don't Bet Against Me! Beating the Odds Against Breast Cancer and In Life," Deanna writes about her relationship with Brett, whom she's known since she was 7. She talks about him having a big fidelity slip-up before they got married. It led to Favre checking himself in to rehab for an addiction to Vicodin.
    On pages 31 and 36, Deanna gives what seems like conflicting takes on Brett's penchant for truthfulness.

    Page 31, she talks about asking Deanna to lie to her dentist about still having pain after her wisdom teeth were extracted. "My back is killing me, and there's no other way to get pain pills," she quotes Brett as saying. "Because Brett wasn't a liar, I believed him. What I didn't know was that he was using everyone he knew --- me, the team doctors, his trainers and his teammates -- to get pain killers."
    On Page 35 ,she writes about their Feb. 12, 1996, trip to NYC for the QB to accept an ESPY Award.
    "He got up and left me sitting there ... for an hour. Later I learned that it took him 20 minutes just to swallow about 15 pills, because he kept throwing up," she wrote on page 35. Page 36: "He went manic when the drugs hit him, so he was talking his fool head off. 'Did you take something?' I hissed. He shook his head , but I knew he was lying. And Brett had never been a liar -- until then.
    C.J. is at 612.332.TIPS or cj@startribune.com. E-mailers, please state a subject -- "Hello" doesn't count. Attachments are not opened, so don't even try. More of her attitude can be seen on FOX 9 Thursday mornings.

    Thanks for posting! Poor Deanna! Out of everyone, I feel sorry for her the most. Whether Brett did it or not remains to be seen, it's still a living nightmare for her. :(

    Seriously tragic for the entire family... I've always thought highly of Deanna,....she seemed to keep a level head for the family,..but then I've only seen what they've wanted us to see.
    No one knows for sure.

    Regardless.,....allegations or truth.... it has to be a stress on the family. :icon_frown:
