Duchess Of York Was Broke And Drunk When She Accepted Bribe!

| Filed under: Royals RoyceOops!Oprah Winfrey


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!

She says:

"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.

They claim:

"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??

    Poor Poor Fergie! If she wanted to stay in the lavish lifestyle she shouldn't have gotten her toes sucked by John Bryan! I feel no sympathy for this woman she had the world at her fingertips and threw it all away. Time to go back to a normal lifestyle Fergie!

    What a parasite,these Royals are .Get a job bitch,and quit blaming everyone but yourself.Shame to Oprah and People magazine for even lending a ear to this waste of space.

    This Ex Weight Watcher FAT-PIG is now an alcoholic? Now she'll be the PAID spokeswoman for some Hazeldon 12-Step Religious Cult Addiction Treatment Center.

    She should have received a BETTER divorce settlement. The Queen really dumped on her and tried the same with Diana but Diana had so much love from the British people the Queen could not publicly treat Diana as badly. All my British friends LOVE to drink and she's no different.

    Maybe she could be the big star that saves Celebrity Rehab! Dr. Drew would be sssoooooooooooo happy :-)

    I am wondering why NO ONE has questioned the ease with whch she offered up the ears of the royal family in exchange for some shopping money. This practice was not and is not new to the entire lot of them. She knew exactly what the 'businessman" could expect in return for dollars and I suspect is feeling luckier to have avoided those questions than to appear as a "drunk", "desparate" poor thing rather than the experienced manipulator of the truth, that the Royals have been for sale for centuries. She got caught doing something she was way to comfortable with for this to have been the "first" time. Where there's a pimp, there is someone for sale.

    Why is everyone saying her poncy ex owes her a living. Her kids were well provided for and she got a massive allowance for them - and a grace and favour residence while brining them up. She is divorced - with a butler and maid. She refuses to drop the granduer and thinks Andrew should still cough up. Her millions earned with books, Weight Watchers etc, she has squandered. Just because she wants champagne but can only afford beer - oh boo bloody hoo!

    I used to like Fergie but this is ridiculous. If you can't refrain from buying things you can't afford you're a fucking idiot. I have no sympathy. Is she going to jail for this?

  9. 9

    She is the most useless person on the planet and the luckiest. How could someone that ugly get a royal to marry her? Yet, she's still a fuck-up. Must be a result of all that inbreeding.

  10. 10

    She received a large settlement when she divorced (millions). It is her own fault that she blew through it.

  11. 11

    How about budgeting and getting a regular job like us ordinary people. We're supposed to sympathize with her???? Not likely.

  12. 12

    Re: VinnyD – agreed. how can i score a royal man?

  13. 13

    She's been divorced for ages, and gets enough money to support 4 normal families. This is the second or third time she's been broke and gotten bailed out.

  14. 14

    She was only sorry because she got caught. If she could bank all that money without anyone being wiser, she would again. This is probably not her first nor her last time using Prince Andrew for monetary gains. And to blame alcohol is an all time low. A leopard never changes it's spot so sooner or later she would be exposed. Greedy, dishonest people will always get caught. She should learn to live within her means, I mean, she's living in her ex husband's house probably for free! If she needs more money, get a freakin job like every commener! Even the wealthy work for a living.

    Re: 7kimba8 – I think you are an insider - Andrew, is this you?!!!!!

    They're after me lucky charms!

  17. 17

    Whatever it is she gets no sympathy from me, people as high up as her do this all the time but the excuses came out of the woodwork when the scandal broke. This is boring and she gets nothing from me. Your only sorry you got caught York.

    What a fucking pig this woman is. She got caught out and now playing the sympathy card. She has an over-inflated sense of importance and entitlement, and is only sorry that she got caught.

    earn it yourself fatchuss

    She's talking in third person about herself, to separate herself somehow from what she did. America might be good for her, but her children live in the U.K.
    Like the toe incident, this too shall pass.

    Re: WatcherOne – I read that she got no settlement apart from 1/2 an annual naval salary. If she did in fact blow through subsequent millions, an involuntary austerity program would do her some good. She could have earned her money working for the Queen helping with endless openings and charity work had she not squandered her reputation. The Queen works too hard for her years as it is. Elizabeth is clever, and will think something up that works.

    I still love Fergie. She had a lapse in memory, but I am convinced she'll come back. Give her a break………………..the Royal Family has treated her like an enemy all these years, and she doesn't deserve that.

  24. 24

    I've never known too much about the Duchess and thought she was in competition with Diana, but this interview was heart wrenching! If you've never been massively famous and/or rich, your appearance and public image is a MAJOR part of your continued success and access to future earnings. She was forced to accept an insulting alimony of $20,000 ( fast food workers make more) and she is given a "room" in Andrew's house. I wish her well & hope people who can help her, do so!

  25. 25

    Get a job wino!

    Re: AriBlue – No one can 'force' someone NOT to litigate for a settlement. A Bio said Diana rec'd a $26 million divorce settlement, but another article said that Fergie didn't go to court because she 'liked the Queen.' Hindsight is 20/20. Sometimes these matters are kept quiet, and perhaps she blew through a private settlement. Who knows.

    We sure as hell don't want or need her here in the USA! Why are they passing their sloppy second losers like her over to us? And millions of people around the planet are drunk and/or broke at any given time, but almost NONE of them did what she did! And as a royal, she lives off the tax dollars of the U.K. anyhow, and she gets free room and board. So how can she be "broke?" She's GREEDY, not NEEDY! BTW, she was scheduled to make an appearance out here in the Seattle area a few years ago, to promote a line of expensive jewelry that she was trying to hawk (but the "diamonds" in it were fakes), and then she backed out of it at the last minute, even though it had been widely publicized around here. My mother and I were very startled to hear that a royal like her was even considering coming here for any reason and that she was going to meet the general public. Pretty lame and desperate-sounding! Now I'm glad I didn't meet her!
