Duchess Sarah Ferguson — “The Original Fergie” — has a perfectly good explanation for why she was caught on video accepting money in exchange for access to her the father of her children, Prince Andrew: She was drunk!
And that’s precisely why she’d be the perfect trainwreck candidate for rehabilitation on VH1′s dead-in-the-water Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew.
Sarah Ferguson says she had been drinking and was “not in my right place” when she was caught on video offering access to her former husband, Prince Andrew, for $724,000. The Duchess of York will open up about the scandal and her cash woes in an interview airing on The Oprah Winfrey Show on Tuesday.
Scandal-scarred and deep in debt, Duchess of York will bare her soul in an interview with the Queen of Talk, airing June 1, Harpo Productions revealed in a release this morning.
No doubt the redhead will spill the beans on the damning video that showed her offering an undercover reporter access to her former husband, Prince Andrew, for $750,000. British tabloid News of the World posted the video on its website Sunday, leaving The Original Fergie homeless and on the outs — again — with the Royal Family.
In a statement issued Sunday, Ferguson, 50, apologized for the incident, which she blames on her depleted finances. That’s precisely why business magnate Donald Trump is hoping the former Weight Watchers spokeswoman will take him up on his offer to appear on the upcoming season of his recently-revived NBC reality series, The Apprentice.
