Candid confession or just a sympathy ploy?
The Duchess of York Sarah Ferguson opened up to Oprah last Friday (set to air today) about her exposed bribery scandal, and is claiming that she was broke, drunk, and at rock bottom when everything went down!
"I haven't faced the devil in the face, because I was in the gutter at the moment. I'm aware of the fact that I've been drinking, you know, that I was not in the right place."
Sources close to Fergie claim that she was desperate to keep her lavish lifestyle going, and that she didn't know how to live otherwise.
"She's totally broke. Her desperation led to the lack of judgment. She's a shopaholic, obsessed with designers like Chanel and Hermes…she didn't know how to stop living like a royal. She wants to start fresh in America."
We're sure a nice career in reality television will help replenish that drained bank account, bb! We know Celebrity Rehab is still looking for its new cast - do they accept shopaholics??
