Sydney Leathers, the 23-year-old woman on the other end of New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner’s racy exchanges, spoke to Inside Edition on Thursday about the scandal.

For those who are curious, Leathers says that she had phone sex with Weiner “at least twice a week,” and that she, like much of the rest of the country, felt “Carlos Danger” was a pretty lame Internet handle.

More from the interview:

[Inside Edition's Jim] Moret asked, “When did things turn dark and dirty?”

“Very quickly,” said Leathers.

“Who prompted that?” asked Moret.

“He did,” she replied.

“So, Anthony Weiner moved your conversation from professional to dirty?”

“Yes,” said Leathers.

[...]

The sexting was constant, with Weiner writing: “I’ve found the perfect woman. Gorgeous, sexy and like a bit of crazy.”

She replied: “I basically worship the ground you walk on. You’re incredible.”

Moret asked, “Did you think at that time that you loved Anthony Weiner?”

“Maybe not loved, but I definitely cared about him,” said Leathers.
