Oprah Puts The Duchess Of York In Her Place

oprah puts duchess in her place

The only thing worse than having issues is having Oprah call you out on 'em!

Back in September, we reported that Duchess of York Sarah Ferguson would be starring in a six-part reality show on Oprah's network called Finding Sarah.

Now, Oprah has opened up about her dealings with Sarah Ferguson.

Here's what she had to say about the Duchess:

"She (Ferguson) started emailing me and at one point asked what did I think of her doing a celebrity chef show.

I said, 'That's not going to help you. How are you going to rehabilitate yourself on a celebrity chef show? You should be working on yourself.'

We had a real moment of connection, watching the tape of her trying to get £500,000 (for access to Prince Andrew). She said she didn't want to go into bankruptcy. I said, 'But when you look at that tape don't you see a morally bankrupted person? The one thing you were trying to avoid, you already are.' She said, 'I never thought of it that way.' I remember the last thing I said to her when I left that interview: 'Don't let me see you on Dancing With The Stars.'"

Way to tell her, Oprah! Let's hope that tough lovin' does the trick!

    Clearly this woman doesn't know what the hell she's doing. And I agree, thank you Oprah for telling it like it is. Yes the dutchess loves all the attention she can get

    Who cares what that self-important twat thinks?

    that was not putting her in her place, Oprah was trying to get her to OPEN HER EYES and REALIZE SHE WAS ALREADY BANKRUPT IN OTHER AREAS, LIKE MORALLY, which is much worse, for MOST, (not you, obviously, Mario, and most of Hollywood) than financial ruin… But Sarah has become, unfortunately, like most HOLLYWOOD MORONS and loves, loves loves money, fame, money, fame, not paying people, physical items, and more money…. just morally bankrupt and how her daughters are? who knows….

    With all the hanger ons that Sarah Ferguson has, and the fact that in her mind she thinks she's still relivent, it's good that Oprah pretty much told her point blank on how she's really acting.

    Doesn't sound like Oprah at all. She wouldn't say things like this publicly.



  11. 11

    I agree with Oprah, but that is not my point. I wonder what Oprah's motivation is by sharing such personal information with the public. Seems a little morally bankrupt to me?

    Oprah's only concern is eating out Gayle's STINKY, SMELLY TWAT!!!

    This is why i love Oprah. =)

    Oprah put Sarah on her show over this and benefitted financially from Sarah's personal money trouble, instead of helping her out at the bank; not that O owes her any assi$tance, as Sarah's ex mother-in-law is the richest woman in the world. Easy for O to burp advice when she's only had to take care of herself and business empire rather than making a choice to be out of the work loop raising two beautiful daughters, even if it's a bullseye comment. Being a mom often lends itself to becoming financially vulnerable. You can't do justice to both well most times, I'm afraid.

    There is no justification for what Fergie did. None. From outward appearances, Prince Andrew has been supportive of her throughout the years, no matter what crap she's gotten herself into. Pretty awful way to repay him. That being said, if Fergie wants to go on Dancing with the Stars to get herself out of a financial hole, I don't see where Oprah can stand in judgment. It's easy to stand on the moral high ground when you are made of money. The rest of us have bills to pay.

    (While) I applaud Oprah for being a good "friend" in asking Sarah Ferguson to look at the way in which she is living her life, the fact that she made these biting words about an obviously desperate and fame-loving woman whom most would call pathetic or a footnote to Lady Diana public makes Oprah seem to be cruel. Just because you offer good advice to someone doesn't mean it is everyone else's business. The choices Fergie has made recently have damaged more than her public persona or her pocketbook. How she plans to piece together the things she has broken such as the trust between her and her ex-husband whom she was always friendly with is something she will have to figure out outside of the light of the public eye.

    Oprah's honesty will help her.
