Sarah Ferguson Tells Oprah She Was "Drunk, Broke" During Tabloid Sting

| by

Sarah Ferguson will be on The Oprah Winfrey Show today, June 1, 2010, where she reveals that she was drunk and broke when she accepted a bribe from an undercover reporter. Alcohol is not the wisest choice – ask Lindsay Lohan.

Sarah Ferguson asked an undercover reporter for more than $700,000 in exchange for access to ex Prince Andrew — the chat was caught on tape.

According to Sarah Ferguson,

I haven‘t faced the devil in the face, because I was in the gutter at the moment,” the Duchess of York, 50, admits on the Oprah Winfrey Show in an episode airing today, June 1, 2010. She continued, I'm aware of the fact that I’ve been drinking, you know, that I was not in the right place.”


According to US Magazine, insiders close to the British “Fergie” said “She’s totally broke.” One source insists, “Her desperation led to the lack of judgment.” She is “a shopaholic, obsessed with designers like Chanel and Hermes…she didn’t know how to stop living like a royal.”

Fergie is said to want to start afresh in America and has expressed interest in participating in the next Dancing with the Stars.
