Months after his affair with Brooke Hundley got him fired as a baseball analyst at ESPN, Steve Phillips has spoken out.

He sat down with Matt Lauer today and took full responsibility for his immoral actions, while also detailing his addiction to sex.

"What I want to do is take ownership," he said. "I made some mistakes ... I'm fully responsible for what I did."

The former New York Mets General Manager was recently released from Pine Grove Behavioral Health and Addiction Services in Hattiesburg, the same clinic Tiger Woods reportedly attended for his issues.

Phillips referred to it as a place for people who are "broken" and "struggling to find answers."

To his credit, he didn't hide behind the addiction, saying:

"People look at sex addiction as an excuse; it's not an excuse. I'm fully responsible for everything that I did and accept responsibility for that. I've broken my wife's heart. I've damaged her and our relationship in a terrible way.

"I'm working my tail off to try to save my marriage ... [but] I don't know what the ultimate result will be."

Brooke Hundley, the former ESPN employee whose affair with Steve Phillips got them both fired last month, gave an interview today to Good Morning America.

Despite the fact that she was complicit in the affair and her own bizarre actions exposed it, Brooke Hundley believes she's also a victim in all of this, saying:

"I think people are so quick to make a judgment, it's almost like 'here's a great story. Here's a great chance for me to ... destroy this person' without any sense of really thinking about the fact that there's a human being behind those words."

"I've been called things that no woman should ever be called. I've been called the c-word. I've been called a whore. I've been called a home wrecker."

Boo freaking hoo, Brooke.

Maybe you shouldn't have shown up at Phillips' home in person, left a note bragging to his wife about your affair with him, driven over his lawn or backed into a stone wall (cementing her home wrecker status in more ways than one)!

Don't get us wrong. Steve Phillips is an idiot for risking his career and his family over an affair with a crazy chick half his age, and deserves the consequences.

But to watch Brooke Hundley try to come off as the sympathetic victim in this interview - especially whining about Jay Leno showing pictures of her and poking fun at the fact that she's less hot than Steve's wife Marni - is just laughable.

She claims her "breaking point" is near. Imagine how Phillips' teenage son, who she cyber-stalked, and Marni Phillips, who was flat out petrified of Brooke, felt.

Of Marni Phillips' 911 call, Hundley said "the same fear I heard in her voice was similar to how I had felt." Except that she subjected Marni to it, not vice versa.

Details. Watch Brooke Hundley's interview on GMA after the jump:

Brooke Hundley, the ESPN production assistant who exposed a secret affair with ESPN baseball analyst Steve Phillips, is now out of a job at the network.

A rep from ESPN at first confirmed to the AP that the 22-year-old Hundley "doesn't work at ESPN anymore," but it was unclear if she quit or was axed.

Later, ESPN said that in light of the events made public this past week, Brooke was indeed shown the door, but didn't provide a cause for termination.

Probably something along the lines of her being a crazy b!tch.

Brooke Hundley's experience at ESPN will look great on her resume. Reason for leaving past occupation? Sleeping with married superior and stalking his son online.

It was a mix of utter disregard for morals, positively representing the network and general common sense that got Steve Phillips fired earlier today.

The network gave the former New York Mets GM the heave-ho just days after he admitted a summer affair with Hundley and took a leave of absence.

The sordid affair soon became a full-blown sex scandal.

Phillips broke it off and Brooke Hundley lost it, stalking his teenage son on Facebook and harassing his wife Marni in a letter, bragging about nailing Steve.

A rep for Phillips claims he's entering a treatment facility.

Hopefully one where he learns that just because a crazy chick works under him doesn't mean he has to make it literally the case in a car in the parking lot.

Less than a week after his affair with 22-year-old production assistant Brooke Hundley came to light, ESPN baseball analyst Steve Phillips has been fired.

ESPN made the announcement last night during the American League Championship Series, during which Phillips normally would have been in the studio.

"Steve Phillips is no longer working for ESPN," the network said.

"His ability to be an effective representative for ESPN has been significantly and irreparably damaged, and it became evident it was time to part ways."

Steve's rep issued a statement saying that Phillips "is voluntarily admitting himself to an in-patient treatment facility to address his personal issues."

The statement did not specify the nature of said issues, although we're gonna guess that the married father of four's parking lot sex sessions with Brooke Hundley, a certifiable nut job who went on to harass his family, were a factor.

Steve Phillips has proven himself a very stable, upstanding individual.

Phillips previously had taken a leave of absence after details emerged of his relationship with Brooke Hundley, whom he met at the All-Star Game in St. Louis.

Steve and his wife, Marni Phillips, issued statements to police describing harassing phone calls by Hundley after the relationship ended, and at least one frenzied visit by Hundley in person to their Wilton, Conn., home in August.

Brooke dropped off an insane letter to Marni detailing her affair with Steve, then is said to have stalked their teenage son on Facebook. Marni then called 911.

Steve Phillips, a former GM of the New York Mets, had risen steadily on ESPN's depth chart, joining Jon Miller and Joe Morgan in the game booth Sundays.

He admitted to extramarital affairs while with the Mets, as well.

Steve Phillips' ex-lover Brooke Hundley filed a restraining order against him one day after dropping off a sketchy-ass letter to the ESPN analyst's wife at home.

You know, the letter that stated Brooke and Steve should be together, offered sordid details on their sex life and prompted Marni Phillips to frantically call 911.

On August 20, Brooke sought protection from him, claiming that while at a hotel back in July, Steve Phillips "bought me a strong drink and then cornered me."

At that point, the whack job claims, the married father of four was "trying to persuade me to come to his hotel suite to spend the night." She obliged.

The production assistant claims Steve called her hotel room until she agreed to see him, then "continued to text on a regular basis with inappropriate things."

Brooke Hundley and Steve Phillips: A match made in tabloid heaven.

Brooke Hundley (click here for pictures) "tried to get him to stop" but agreed to meet up with the former Mets GM "a few times after work in the parking lot."

Interesting word choice, as in the note Brooke left for Steve's wife the day before, she wrote, "I'm not just some random girl he had sex with in parking lots."

Lastly, she says Steve tried to ruin her career after word got out that they were sleeping together, calling her a "slut" and saying he would get her fired.

Looks like the threats didn't take, as she spilled the beans to his wife anyway. Hundley ultimately withdrew the complaint against Phillips September 15.

That day, she posted the following on Facebook: "I've seen evil and he wears khaki pants and bright blue polos. Out of court, and back to basketball."

A frantic 911 call made by Marni Phillips, the wife of ESPN analyst and former New York Mets GM Steve Phillips, when she discovered his 22-year-old ex-mistress in their driveway has been uncovered, and it's upsetting, to say the least.

Much as the details of Steve's affair with Brooke Hundley and her subsequent craziness may seem funny, Marni Phillips' terrified reaction is anything but.

Marni returned to her Wilton, Conn., home and discovered Brooke Hundley, an ESPN production assistant who worked with Steve, dropping off a letter.

In the letter, Hundley confessed to having an affair with Steve. Hmm. Confessed actually isn't the right word. Let's go with "arrogantly bragged about."

In the 911 call, Marni Phillips pleads "I have a crazy woman who is involved with my husband and she's come to my house to harm me and my children."

Marni said that Brooke freaked out when she saw her, "got in her car, put it in reverse and smashed the rear end of her vehicle into the stone column."

She also said Brooke Hundley had been harassing her - although she didn't know her name at the time, only that she was involved with her husband.

Marni has subsequently sued for divorce from Steve Phillips.

ESPN baseball analyst Steve Phillips is taking a leave of absence amid the sex scandal that he finds himself snared in thanks to former lover Brooke Hundley.

The New York media reported earlier that the former General Manager of the New York Mets was involved in a relationship with the female ESPN employee.

Phillips is married, and lives with his wife and four children, in Wilton, Conn. He had a sexual affair this summer with Brooke Hundley, which he broke off.

This blew up in his face when she allegedly stalked his 16-year-old son on Facebook and dropped off a bizarre letter to Phillips' wife Marni at their house.

The letter pretty much bragged about her affair with Steve, disclosing details about his genitalia and asserting that his marriage to Marni Phillips was over.

After dropping the letter off, Hundley then drove her car into a pilon, traumatizing the family and leading Steve Phillips to file a police report against her.

Steve Phillips is taking a leave of absence from ESPN.

Acknowledging the relationship in a statement, Phillips said:

"I am deeply sorry that I have put my family and colleagues through this. It is a personal matter that I will not comment on further. I have, however, asked for a leave of absence to address this with my family and to avoid unnecessary distractions."

ESPN suspended him for a week and released this statement:

"We were aware of this and took appropriate disciplinary action at the time. We have granted Steve Phillips' request for an extended leave of absence to address it."

The irony here is that Steve Phillips gets paid, presumably a lot, to talk about baseball on TV and dispense opinions on the sport, despite the fact that he was fired as a GM after making some terrible personnel decisions.

Yet he can't do the same because slept with a crazy 22-year-old.

If you thought trading Scott Kazmir for Victor Zambrano during his stint as GM of the Mets was the worst decision Steve Phillips could make, think again.

The ESPN analyst had an affair with assistant Brooke Hundley, who, after being dumped, went insane and started harassing Steve's wife Marni Phillips.

We are talking phone calls and a letter that bragged about sex with Steve Phillips while ridiculing their "loveless marriage," The New York Post reports.

Steve confessed to Marni Phillips and local police that he had slept with ESPN assistant Brooke Hundley, 22, several times this summer before dumping her.

In retaliation, the jilted young woman repeatedly phoned Phillips' wife, exclaiming things like "We both can't have him!" an explosive police report claims.

Hundley also described, in her letter to Marni Phillips, details of her husband's sexual relationship with her, including the birthmark on Steve's crotch and how at least she didn't have to worry about him knocking her up since he had a vasectomy.

Classy. It's actually worse than you think, too.

Steve Phillips blew this whistle on lover-turned-stalker Brooke Hundley. He also blew his marriage to Marni Phillips. This was after Brooke ... never mind.

Hundley accidentally smashed her car into a stone column while speeding away from the Phillips' home after leaving the letter, terrifying the family.

She also may have used an ESPN computer to contact and stalk Phillips' 16-year-old son on Facebook while posing as one of his high-school classmates.

"I have extreme concerns about the health and safety of my kids and myself," Steve Phillips said in a Wilton, Conn., police statement, adding that Brooke Hundley had become "obsessive and delusional" after he dumped her.

Steve Phillips is not pressing charges against her, but he is being sued himself - for divorce, by Marni Phillips, 40, with whom he has four sons.

Phillips has also been suspended for a week by ESPN because of the scandal.

These bombshell developments come nearly a decade after Phillips took a leave of absence as the Mets' GM for infidelity, which was almost as much of a hallmark of Phillips' tenure with the team as his bad personnel decisions.

One of several rumored affairs he had back then was with a team employee, Rosa Rodriguez, who sued Steve for sexual harassment in the late 1990s.
