Steve Phillips’ stalker mistress on GMA: I wanted ‘people to pay attention’

Former ESPN analyst Steve Phillips’ mistress – a 22 year-old production assistant who stalked his family and posed as a teenager in order to get information from his son on Facebook, was on Good Morning America this morning. Brooke Hundley claims that she’s been attacked by the press and irreparably hurt, particularly by Jay Leno pointing out that Phillips’ wife is hot and she’s not. (I’m not sure how to embed the video, but you can watch it here on

In case you’re unfamiliar with this story, Hundley repeatedly tried to contact Phillips’ wife to tell her the details of the affair once Phillips broke up with her. Phillips admits to the affair, but claims he only slept with Hundley three times. Hundley befriended Phillips’ teen son on Facebook claiming to be a classmate and grilled him about his parents’ relationship. She repeatedly called his wife trying to get her to talk. When the wife disconnected the phone, Hundley drove to Phillips’ home in Wilton, CT to leave a psycho note about how much she meant to this married guy who had already dumped her. Key passages in the note include “I’m a real person in his life and… care deeply about his happiness,” and “I’m not just some random girl he had sex with in parking lots.” His wife pulled into the driveway as Hundley was leaving the note, and called the police and tried to use her truck to block Hundley’s car from leaving. Hundley drove over the yard and hit a stone column in her haste to escape. Phillips later got a restraining order against Hundley.

In the interview, Hundley has a real “poor me” attitude about a situation in which she more than deserved the public backlash against her atrocious behavior. Yes, Phillips shouldn’t have cheated, but she went crazy and went after his family. It really looks like she’s fake crying at first when she talks about the press making fun of her looks, and she says she had to ask a friend to stay with her because “mentally, I would not be able to take much more.”

Hundley claims that Phillips threatened her career if she went forward with claims against him, and she kind of half-said she tried to talk to someone at work about it and gave up. After the story came out, she got canned by ESPN. They issued a statement read on ABC that “Our investigation determined that Hundley’s characterization of the events was inconsistent.”

You know who this chick reminds me of? Kate Major, that ex Star reporter who went crying to just about every outlet that Jon Gosselin dumped her ass after promising her the moon and the stars. Except this girl went after her married ex’s family and that is wrong on so many levels. He’s just as culpable as she is for the affair, but she hurt his wife and kids and there’s no excuse for that.

Hundley barely apologized for the stunts she pulled and showed how narcissistic and unhinged she is. She said “I obviously feel pain for anybody else that I may have brought into this situation,” and then she added “but I did things and I thought about things just as an avenue just to get people to pay attention.”

When the interviewer told Hundley that her letter was scary to Phillips’ wife, she turned it around again into an “I’m the victim” thing and said “it’s the same fear that I felt for months before.” Give me a break.

As for what she would say to Marni Phillips, the wife of the guy stupid enough to sleep with her, she said “the same fear that I heard in her voice [in the 911 call when she was at her house] was similar fear to how I have felt, and I would never want anybody else to… go through what I was going through.”

Again she repeated the crap about wanting someone to pay attention to her. “I brought it on [the negative press attention] but not intentionally. I simply wanted somebody to get upset enough to have an impact to get me out of this horrific situation.”

What did Glen Close say in Fatal Attraction – “I will not be ignored,” right? This girl is insane. It doesn’t matter to her who she hurts as long as someone pays attention to her.

Good Morning America reminds us at the end of this segment that Steve Phillips has been fired from ESPN, he’s now in rehab for sex addiction and that his wife has filed for divorce. This isn’t the first time he’s cheated with a woman at work. In the late 90s he was sued for sexual harassment by a female coworker he had an affair with.

    yet another reminder having an affair is a really bad idea. Somebody always gets hurts. Sometimes you get fired and sometimes you get a psycho.
    i imagine very rarely is it just ‘an innocent affair’

    if you want to act like your single people, get single

  2. ohmy39 says:

    I think she is hot, but the poor me attitude needs to go. She was obsessed by the attention of an older man and did not want it to end. Fatal attraction.

  3. wow says:

    She’s more concern over the fact that people say his wife is hotter than her as oppose to getting involved with a married guy in the first place? Wha???

    LOL @ “only” slept with her three times. Stories like these crack me up.

  4. BitterBetty says:

    Why is this loser even being interviewed? getting on TV has never been easier.

  5. Codzilla says:

    I wondered when this hag was going to start making the media rounds.

  6. bros says:

    why is this trash even on TV being interviewed? I cant believe the gall of some people believing they deserve public sympathy. got this makes me mad. F off ugly.

  7. danielle says:

    Um…you’re sad cause people are comparing your looks to his wife?! How about not sleeping with a married celebrity!!!

  8. snowball says:

    Watch out, I sense an upcoming intervention with that Prejean creature!

  9. Tammy King says:

    This guy’s wife should be afraid. Remember what happened to Joey Buttafuco’s (sp?) wife when he broke up with his girlfriend Amy Fisher.

  10. Cinderella says:

    I agree with bros, why is this sad excuse of a girl being interviewed?

    There is nothing glamorous about an unattractive, imbalanced stalker, so why give her airtime?

  11. temeneos says:

    ummm, I just wonder if Mr. Phillips targeted her because she is young, insecure, crazy and not so attractive…

  12. Praise St. Angie! says:

    aw, let’s all have a pity party for this stalking homewrecker.

    Wayne’s World comes to mind…”psycho hose-beast”.

  13. Ally says:

    I think “crazy” may be over the top as a characterization. It’s not “crazy” for an intern in her early 20s to not be familiar with the boundaries involved in having an affair with a married celebrity. It’s no more “crazy” for her to be emotionally involved in the affair, than for him to pursue another office ‘romance’ after his sexual harassment suit, and with a wife and kids at home. If you’re throwing stones, don’t just throw them at the woman.

  14. Praise St. Angie! says:

    Ally, while I agree that Phillips is just as responsible for the affair as the intern is (possibly moreso since he had the position of power)…

    HE isn’t going on TV asking for sympathy for what he did and making excuses for his behavior. yup, he’s scum, too, but he’s not being interviewed on a major morning show crying about how unfair everyone is being to him and glossing over his affair or the behavior that followed it.

  15. Green Is Good says:

    As if she hasn’t embarrassed herself enough with her psycho behavior, by all means blab about it on national t.v. What an idiot.

  16. bondbabe says:

    Oh good Lord! Her “but what about me” attitude is her demise. Daddy issues?

    And she says she recognized the fear in the voice of wife’s 911 call and doesn’t anyone else to go through what she went through, but yet she put the wife through it? Huh???

    She’s goin’ off the rails on a Crazy Train. LOOK AT ME, I NEED ATTENTION, LOOK AT ME, I AM A DELICATE, UNIQUE SNOWFLAKE….

  17. Nicole says:

    I don’t sympathize with this woman because she’s foolish, but just from reading this article, I get the sense that she has a lot of deep-rooted feelings of being ignored. She also appears to be very hasty. She didn’t think her actions through because her emotions (whatever they were) had blinded her.

    I think she needs to see a therapist or a psychiatrist. Get to the root of her issues, sort them out, and resolve them in a calm, protected enviroment. Surely a therapist would give her the sympathetic ear she desires so much.

  18. Firestarter says:

    I feel nothing but disgust for her and her actions.
    I also do not think she was taken advantage of or targeted by him because she was young, insecure and ugly. The man has had multiple affairs before, and dishonest , cheating men have no “type” other than someone who is breathing and willing to carry on with them. Men don’t care about looks. necessarily when they cheat, they care about the sex and about the fact that this relationship in all probability will never go anywhere. He made a fatal mistake with this one.

    I am thriled that the nut job was canned from ESPN. Good luck getting a job someplace else! Dumb bitch!

  19. Just a Poster says:

    Oh this is going to get ugly!

    IMO she has crazy written all over her.

    (no way shape or form discounting the husbands roll in this!)

  20. stinabelle says:

    Poor girl is just not very photogenic, is she? I have never understood going into an affair KNOWING the man/woman is married. I can understand the other aspect (understanding doesn’t make it right), but not the knowing. I would have felt bad for her had she not known he was married.

    I have a little sympathy for her though. She’s young, and maybe he promised her marriage, maybe she’d never had that kind of attention before, maybe she truly thought she loved him and his actions made her desperate. We don’t really know. And to go from being a total unknown to being called ugly on TV has to hurt.

    Doesn’t mean I don’t think she deserves what’s coming to her.

  21. Firestarter says:

    Sorry, but I do not believe he promised her anything. You don’t have to promise a crazy person anything for them to get it into their heads something means more than it actually does.

    When you have an affair with a married man (which she was well aware of) you have to be almost brain dead to assume that anything the man tells you is even remotely close to the truth. Married men make promises to their wives and break them all the time, so why would you think they would be any different with you? Age is a poor excuse, because anyone over the age of 12 knows that you do not run around with a man or woman who is married. You do not have to be a mature woman in your 30’s and up to understand that concept. She is a loon and she wanted to destroy him because she knew he didn’t want her. She got what she wanted and a whole lot more, and nothing good.

    He is a scum bag, but she is even worse. Not getting your way does not give you license to hurt other people. She didn’t hurt the person she wanted to as much as she hurt innocent people who did not deserve to be hurt. She went into the relationship knowing he was married, so too bad if he hurt her. S*** like that happens when you play with fire.

  22. moi says:

    This girl certainly acted inappropriately, but frankly, I am sick of the double-standard placed on the woman in these types of situations (by men AND women) – calling them crazy and irrational. She is young, inexperienced and was blatantly taken advantage of by this older man, who is a repeated philanderer. There is no excuse for her behavior, but there is also NO excuse for his. They both deserved what they got, and I don’t believe either deserve more blame in this situation. As for her being on television to talk about it, who cares? That’s just the nature of our media-obsessed culture.

  23. Whitey Fisk says:

    Lem, I agree. I don’t understand why some people just don’t get it – having an affair is like making a sex tape. It’s something you can’t “undo”, and you worry about it being discovered for the rest of your life.

  24. stinabelle says:

    I agree that she should have known what she was getting herself into, but not everyone is as smart as you or me. People can be deluded, or are willing to be convinced of things their rational mind doesn’t believe. It’s possible to be in a situation that you know it’s wrong but to believe you can get something right out of it.

    And I have no problem believing he offered her something like leaving his wife. He’s a liar, and a cheater, and he doesn’t get a pass.

    @moi, I agree with your whole comment.

  25. Juice In LA says:

    you said: ” You know who this chick reminds me of? Kate Major, that ex Star reporter”

    I say she reminds me of Glenn Close’ Fatal Attraction character.

    Shes nuts, fat, ugly, a home wrecker and a blubbering pissant crybaby. STFU chicka, you do not deserve 15 minutes of infamy,

  26. hatsumomo says:

    Wow, this girl is completely crazy! I can see how she tries to make logic of her actions, but really comes across as narcissistic and/or unstable. Why did she think this interview was a good idea?

    And I’m not going to hate on her looks cause lets face it: she isnt a celebrity to be made perfect for the public at all times. She is a woman, no different than what I see when I walk downtown. And I know most may not consider me beautiful, but I’m beautiful to the one guy that matters, and I’m sure she felt that way once.

    And to top it off, who feels this is the type of woman NOW is looking for to be the product child of a hostile work environment? Its all there. The “pity me its not my fault how I acted its my boss who did this to me and I’m a victim” attitude? I wouldn’t be surprised if they were to release a statement supporting her.

  27. birdie says:

    She has crazy eyes throughout that interview… And she IS ugly. Really truly ugly.

  28. Deb says:

    SHE CONTACTED HIS 16 YEAR OLD SON!!!! Also harassed the wife for months with phone calls. Of the 2 which are both bad the contacting the 16yr old is down right psycho bunny boiler

  29. moi says:

    @stinabelle, I totally agree he doesn’t get a pass. He is a HUGE liar.

    How many times did he cheat on his wife? He was caught several times from what i read. It shows a lack of respect for women imo. He wanted to have his cake and eat it too – well, we’ve all been spurned or lied to at one point or another romantically, and it just so happens he got a girl who wasn’t going to sit and take it. At lease he didn’t get a Sahel Kazemi, right?

    cheating is never fair, to anyone.

  30. Firestarter says:

    She deserves more blame because she is the one harassing his children and wife. I don’t excuse him, but I sure as hell think she is a crazy bitch for the way she handled things. Big deal she is 22. At that age I knew better than to cheat with a married man. She is far from some naive ingenue, who was besotted by teh high flying sportscaster. She knew full well what the score was. She also knew what the harassing and stalking was going to do as well.

  31. Shannon says:

    LOL at her comment that no woman should ever be called a homewrecker. That is exactly what she is! Why else would she harass the wife and children of her ex-lover?

    And she IS fugly. If she didn’t want to be made fun of on Jay Leno, maybe she shouldn’t have had an affair with a man who works at a NEWS AGENCY. Duh?!

  32. Codzilla says:

    Shannon: Exactly. Sorry, but this chick is hideous. And anyone who claims they didn’t wince the first time they saw her photo is a liar.

  33. BTDT says:

    The very same thing happened to me 6 years ago. My husband had an affair with a 22 y/o FUGLY ass bitch. I could not believe he would not only cheat on me but do it with someone so disgusting and nasty. This bitch deserves everything she gets and more. I hope to God her life is miserable and she winds up with some incurable STD. Stupid whore. When will these women and MEN learn?

  34. Kelly says:

    Amazing how men think youth trumps everything — a fugly 22-year old is better than a hot 40-something.

    I’m glad ESPN fired his ass.

  35. Bodhi says:

    Of course cheating is wrong & of course both people are at fault.

    She is CRAZY because she stalked & harassed the philandering asshole’s wife & son. THAT is what makes her nuts, not the cheating part

    And yeah, if they hadn’t slept together, this wouldn’t have happened. Or… maybe it would have. She could have just of easily stalked his family because he rejected her.

    Either way “crazy” & “nuts” are perfectly apt terms for this chick

  36. Kylie says:

    Thats what you get for sleeping with a married man. Suffer in your jokes love!

  37. Paulette says:

    “… psycho note about how much she meant to this married guy … “I’m a real person in his life and… care deeply about his happiness,”…”

    How is that psycho? He probably lied to her to get her into bed, and being 22, she believed him. This guy has ruined his life because he couldn’t keep it in his pants. He probably lies morning, noon, and night.

    Yeah, they’re both in the wrong, but like Ally said, the girl doesn’t deserve all the blame.

    The teenage son should have known better than to chat like that on the web. The wife should have known better than to stick with a man who victimizes women (harassment suit) and repeatedly cheats. It was bound to harm her and her kids one day. I have little sympathy for any of these people.

  38. la chica says:

    Jon Gosselin’s future girlfriend. lol!

  39. moi says:

    it’s shocking to me how women can be cruel to other women, when clearly the fault is at both ends in this situation – not more on her. he is a REPEAT CHEATER. he did more than reject this girl from the sound of it: he used her a couple times and then dumped her like a piece of trash. That’s worse than rejection, it’s disregard for her value as a human. frankly, he got what he had coming.

  40. DD says:

    that interview gave me the creeps, the way she tried to turn it around and pretend that she was abused and stalked instead… wow. I’d sleep with one eye open if i knew her.

  41. guilty pleasures says:

    Yikes, where to start?
    1) Ugly radiates from within, her light shineth bright
    2) crazy is as crazy does, facebook w a teen? attend at a CLANDESTINE LOVER’S house? say no more…
    3) have the audacity to do the ‘circuit’ and expect sympathy???
    Upside, people really are forgiving, just go away, in a few years write sincere apologies to the people you have irreparably harmed, and you may go forth and prosper. Now is not your time.

  42. Hel says:

    She is not a homewrecker – he is, as is anyone who is married and has an affair.

  43. Firestarter says:

    The BOTH of them are homewreckers! How is she a victim all of a sudden? This woman is not 12, she is 22. At that age, you do not need to be “tricked” into bed with a married man, because you should know better. No one can be “tricked” into bed. Get real. You either hop in the sack,knowing full well what you are doing (unless you are raped or drugged then raped) or you DON’T. There is no trickery about it. If a man is married, then DON’T SLEEP WITH HIM. If you do, then that is on you, if you get hurt. A married man who cheats is not going to be faithful to you, no matter what he says. If he is sooooo in love with you, then DON’T SLEEP WITH HIM until he gets a divorce, not before, but after the divorce. Until then, as NeNe from Real Housewives of Atlanta says “Close your legs to married men”

  44. Jazz says:

    Not another pathetic crocodile tears whine fest. If you didn’t want to get compared to the wife then don’t bang a married man. And STFU!

  45. Madisyn says:

    Chica, loved your comment. “Jon Gosselins future girlfriend” I literally laughed outloud!

  46. Madisyn says:

    On a very serious note: I know that the wife and children would normally get the house in the event of a divorce, which apparently she filed for, but for her sake and peace of mind, not to mention that of the children, I hope she moves so she doesn’t have to be afraid of this nut!
