Deanna Favre doesn't say much at all about sexting allegations involving husband Brett

October 21, 2010 |  9:36 am

Deanna Favre, wife of Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre, appeared Thursday on "Fox & Friends" to promote her new book, "The Cure for the Chronic Life." It was an engagement made in advance of her husband's recent newsmaking.

"Well, I won't go into anything personal, but faith really is my crutch," said Favre, who wrote the book with HIV-positive pastor Shane Stanford.  "It's always been my crutch.  It gets me through.  It got me through many struggles. ... That's the reason Shane and I wrote this book."

Oh, Deanna, you're killing us! Still, it's all relative. After her brother's death, her husband's struggles with painkillers and alcohol and her own battle with breast cancer, allegations that Brett sent unwanted advances and below-the-belt naked pics to sideline reporter Jenn Sterger when he was with the New York Jets probably might not be enough to move Favre's stress needle.

"I feel awesome.  I feel really good," says the six-year breast cancer survivor, who is now into triathlons.

The book, she and Stanford said, lays out a 40-day spiritual plan for making it through a hopeless or difficult time.
