In an exclusive interview with "Inside Edition," Sydney Leathers said Anthony Weiner told her he loved her.

"You told Anthony Weiner that you loved him?" Inside Edition's Jim Moret asks Leathers, according to a statement from Inside Edition.

"Yes," Leathers replies.

"Did he tell you he loved you?"

"Yes."

In the segment, airing Thursday and Friday, Leathers also compares her relationship with the former congressman to that of two characters in Netflix's "House of Cards."

"I feel like I'm in a real life 'House of Cards'…" she tells Moret. "He is the Frank Underwood of 'House of Cards.' I see Anthony as Frank Underwood, and myself as a Zoe."

Weiner has been the center of another media blitz this past week after he admitted Tuesday to exchanging sexual texts and emails with the 23 year-old less than two years after resigning from congress for lying about a sex scandal.
