Oprah wants to give Sarah Ferguson a second chance.
After the shame of being caught on camera for trading royal access for cash, Oprah has decided to offer the Duchess of York her very own TV show, which would air on Oprah's new network, launching in January.
A source says:
“Oprah made the call this week. They spoke in person and, for Sarah, the offer is a ray of light at the end of a very dark tunnel. Oprah has known Sarah for some time and the Duchess went on Oprah’s show to explain herself after her most recent scandal. Oprah has always been impressed by Sarah’s ability to pick herself up and reinvent herself. She feels Sarah will be someone viewers of her new channel will be able to relate to on many levels — she’s a divorcee, a working mother, someone who has made some very public mistakes and a woman who, like Oprah, constantly battles with her weight. Oprah was impressed by Sarah’s ability to face up to her errors and to apologize publicly for them. Americans love people who reinvent themselves and Oprah believes Sarah can do that on the new network. Sarah also believes her chances of finding meaningful work in Britain are negligible and she has always felt more accepted in America. The idea would be for her to be based in New York so that she could return to England regularly to see the Princesses. At the end of the day she needs to earn a living."
This is such a great opportunity for the Royal Fergie! We hope she doesn't mess it up!!
