Fergie admits she’s an addict: addicted to being generous & selfless!


Sarah Ferguson has given yet another lie-filled, delusional, insane interview. This, coming on the heels of her wildly offensive Oprah interview in which she compared herself to Princess Diana and said that she was “glad” both she and Diana “missed the wedding” of Prince William and Kate Middleton. It was all very tacky and gross. Anyway, Fergie has a new series on Oprah’s network called Finding Sarah, in which Fergie goes around to Oprah’s new-agey, barky friends and gets advise. The full piece is here, but I’ve got the excerpts below. You can really get the flavor of how insane and sad she is, and how she desperately wants to be painted as a victim:

Fergie on not being invited to the wedding: “Ah, well,” she says with a wistful smile and a shrug. “My girls”–the princesses Beatrice, 22, and Eugenie, 21–”are going. They’re a part of the royal family, and they’re a tremendous credit to me. People move on, you know?” she adds by way of expressing her feelings about not being one of the 1,900 guests. In fact, she has never met Kate Middleton. “I understand that they didn’t invite me. I’m divorced from Prince Andrew. I think it’s a new chapter and a fresh page. It’s very good news and Diana would be very proud.”

On being photographed for Bazaar: “I got rather shy and modest and feeling a bit round like a teapot,” she says. Her struggles with her weight have been mercilessly documented, and she herself has written five books with Weight Watchers, for which she has been a spokesperson. “I felt very insecure, actually,” she goes on. “I said, ‘Oh, nothing’s gonna fit.’ I got Beatrice on the line, and I said, ‘Beatrice, look, Mum’s having a freak-out.’ And so she spoke to the stylist and said, ‘Look, it’s okay, this is how you deal with Mum.’” Beatrice suggested finding a structured look that accentuated her mother’s trim waist. “And she calmed everything down.”

On being a mother: “The only thing I know I’ve done 100 percent right is be a good mother. I’m proud to say I’m the best mom I know. People say to me, ‘What is your brand identity?’ And I say, ‘I’m a global mother.’”

On her scandal where she was caught on tape, selling access to the royal family: “It shocked me to the roots of my whole being,” she says now of the scandal. Buckingham Palace issued a statement denying that Andrew had any prior knowledge of his ex-wife’s activities, which Ferguson staunchly confirms. “He felt very, very sorry for me,” she says. “He was so angry that I should have been trapped, ’cause he knows me. He knows I would never, ever put him in a position that would compromise him, ever!”

Fergie’s lies continue: In an interview with Oprah Winfrey in the wake of the scandal, the duchess explained her behavior by saying she had been drinking and was desperate for money to help a friend and was herself facing “substantial” debts compounded by the collapse of her lifestyle company, Hartmoor. (Her income from her divorce settlement is reportedly only £15,000, around $24,750, a year.) Now she claims it was all a big misunderstanding. “I didn’t do that, selling access,” she says, furrowing her brow. The masquerading Indian mogul, she explains, “said he wanted to start a business with me, and I said, ‘If you’re going to invest in my business, with that comes my family, because we’re all a team together.’ But the way it came across in the video, it was so horrible, because they cut it and edited it and changed it, chopped it.”

More lies: As if knowing this all sounds a bit like rewriting history, she adds, “It was a huge lapse in judgment. People misconstrue who you are,” Ferguson says plaintively. “They think you’re this, but in fact you’re that. Yes, okay, you’ve made many mistakes, but it still doesn’t mean that you’re a bad person. You’ve just taken a few wrong turns.”

Fergie on the Queen: “[She] is the most wonderful, forgiving, nonjudgmental person I know.”

On her ex, The Duke of York: “He’s a great man,” Ferguson stresses, “and a first-rate father and the bestest friend.” With help from Andrew, she says, she is once again debt free. “I love him. He’s my soulmate. It’s actually what we said in front of God at the altar: We honor and respect each other until death do us part. The only thing is, he has girlfriends and I have boyfriends.” (She doesn’t have a boyfriend now, but she says, “I would love a boyfriend.”)

Regrets: “I would have fought for Andrew and I to be together after we got married and he went to sea [with the Royal Navy] and I saw him 40 days a year for the first five years of our marriage. I would have never let anyone come between us. Actually, one of the people [at Buckingham Palace], who shall remain nameless, said, ‘Oh, for heaven’s sake, you’re just a naval wife. Put up with it. Everyone else has to.’ I would say, ‘No, I’m going to be with him.’ I really was in love. We both were madly in love. I remember walking up the aisle,” she says of their July 1986 wedding, “and how he turned round and looked at me in his naval uniform.”

On her OWN show, Finding Sarah: Ferguson describes it as “a woman’s search for really, truly knowing herself and how you find self-worth.” Over six episodes, Ferguson asks self-improvement gurus like Dr. Phil, Suze Orman, and life coach Martha Beck to help her “get sorted.” “Dr. Phil told me, ‘You’re an addict, Sarah,’” she says. “I looked at him, thinking, Rats, what kind of addiction do I have? And he said to approval and acceptance, and I went, Yay! It’s fantastic, because you’ve now labeled my problem and I can deal with it. And Suze Orman,” she adds, “she said you don’t have a money problem; what you have is an addiction to giving out so much. I felt I had to buy a lot of presents because I never thought I was worthy. I think my financial problems have come from desperately trying to please, from my addiction to approval and to thinking that I’m not worthy, so I have to buy people’s love. What I didn’t have until Oprah came into my life,” she adds, “and [the reason] I am so grateful to her, was the toolbox to know how to handle the twists in the road.”

She won’t sell out the royal family anymore: “It won’t happen again,” she says, “because I’m awake now. I’m aware of my behavior…. I was raised by the housekeeper… I’m very lucky, though. I have a very lucky life. I’m able to travel. I have great friends who have been very generous. I’ve got a wonderful family. Andrew and the girls are really the most extraordinary people you’ll ever meet. So the fairy tale does go on,” she says with a faint smile. “It’s just that my fairy tale has a slightly different ending.”

So, basically, Finding Sarah is about people sitting around and telling Fergie that her biggest problem in life is that she simply GIVES TOO MUCH. That she LOVES TOO MUCH. That she’s simply too generous. You know what this reminds me of? Heather Mills!! Aren’t Fergie and Heather strikingly similar? They want to be seen as these incredible humanitarians whose biggest faults are simply their enormous hearts, when in reality, both share the same delusions of grandeur, the same hyper-narcissism, the same cracked-out hustle to get MORE, more money, more attention, more sympathy, more, more, more.

Here are some additional photos from Fergie’s Bazaar shoot, plus some photos of her at last night’s Amfar gala in Cannes.

    Eff her. Lady Di forever!

  2. Happymom says:

    She is just spewing and sounds ridiculous. If she had any class at all she would just shut her mouth, keep her head down, and live her life quietly.

  3. heb says:

    I know its all BS but I really wish it were all true.

  4. Kimbob says:

    She doesn’t even realize how she comes across. What a pity. Also, how lucky is she to have access to all these “gurus,” & what do they do? They are not being honest, obviously. It’s all pitiful, but I don’t feel sorry for Sarah Ferguson, that’s for sure.

  5. azurea says:

    Well, he’s not in the Navy now…if they are so “in love” why don’t they get re-married? Sheesh.

    She is constantly contradicting herself, from one breath to another, one sentence to the next….sometimes even within the same sentence!

  6. Jackson says:

    She only gets $25k per year in alimony? Ouch. Shitty divorce lawyer.

  7. ladybert62 says:

    I cant stand this woman and I think she is U G L Y! !!!!!

    Like Heather Mills who is missing a leg, similarly Fergie is missing a brain.

    Please get over yourself Fergie – Oprah must be DESPERATE to give this horrid person a television show.

  8. Crash2GO2 says:

    “I’m the best mom I know?”

    A sure sign that you are not.

  9. Ellie says:

    She is pathetic! Has no shame.

  10. WhiteNoise says:

    She is so full of shit. Laughably revisionist shit at that.

  11. sapphire says:

    I literally was struck dumb by her latest lies about selling out accesss to her ex.

  12. Sloane Wyatt says:

    Typical delusional behavior of Sarah calling her daughter to parent her through a photo shoot because that’s sooo hard to handle.

    Crazy self absorbed people are awful parents. The kids grow up early and are often responsible beyond their years because of having to take care of a mom who is not there for them. Really sad.

  13. LindaR says:

    Well, when you constantly refer to yourself in the second and third person you show how you have disengaged yourself from your behaviour. She is such a twat.

  14. Christine says:

    I’m pretty sure a good mother does not rely on her child to calm her down during a magazine photo shoot. Because, you know, a mother is supposed to take care of a child, not vice versa. I used to like her and now I cannot stand her!

  15. BeckyR says:

    Agree with all of the above…she sounds ridiculously insane.

  16. lucy2 says:

    What a wackadoo.

    I’m surprised Beatrice’s advice wasn’t “glue an octopus to your forehead, and no one will notice a few extra pounds!”

    Jackson, I’m pretty sure she also gets to live at one of Andrew’s residences and probably has all household expenses taken care of.

  17. wunderkindt says:


  18. bluhare says:

    @lucy2: If I remember correctly, don’t they both live in the same house in different wings or something?

    And she has boyfriends and he has girlfriends. Really. How old are his girlfriends, Sarah?

  19. Lushus L. says:

    @Lucy 2, “Glue an octopus…” LOL! Anyways, I think Fergie looks beautiful in the Bazaar photos.

  20. Judy says:

    The photos are lovely, but they are photoshopped beyond recognition…look nothing like the pics below of Fergie in the navy dress, which is an accurate depiction.

  21. Alix says:

    She’s definitely on board the crazy train now. What the hell is a global mother? That said, the palace shouldn’t have offered such an insultingly low divorce settlement and she shouldn’t have been stupid enough to take it. If she had enough money, she wouldn’t be whoring herself out to the media constantly and, therefore, might not get “snubbed” so much.

  22. Brittany says:

    I bet Andrew does help her. I think that he probably feels sorry for her. She seems like a very lonely woman. And she is the mother of his children.

    I’m calling BS on the queen being a nice person.

  23. anne_000 says:

    i dont think it even matters how much she gets in alimony, since you know she’s never ever going to live within her means. it could be a billion $ and she’d probably be in debt for $3 billion by the end of the year.

    also, andrew lets her live in his 30-room estate & her kids have a big trust fund she can ‘borrow’ from.

    i dont think she’s buying gifts out of pure generosity. i think she’s bartering. how else can she afford going around the world, staying in exclusive hotels, yachts, whatever. it’s just tit for tat. but the thing is, she’s making out that much more since she’s not the one footing most of the bill for her debts over the decades.

    andrew got in trouble when one of his scandalous rich friends (accused of affairs w/ underage girls) helped pay fergie’s latest debts.

  24. RovingLass says:

    Where are her shoes? Is she trying to pull off a barefoot contessa look in the mag spread? Probably a little reminder of the toe sucking incident, or maybe she is so poor, she can’t afford shoes. If I recall correctly, no shoes on the cover her autobiography either. weird.

  25. Kelly says:

    I cannot listen to her claim to be 100% right as a mother. Does anyone remember that when Beatrice was a newborn Fergie left her behind for 6-8 weeks to be with her man? Diana had to fight to keep William with her when she travelled to foreign countries. I know which one I consider to be a good mom! She’s delusional.

  26. Liana says:

    People say to me, ‘What is your brand identity?’
    * * * *

    Oh who the hell says that, you delusional twat?

  27. Sue says:

    ladybert62@ Heather Mills is missing a brain also.

  28. Slim Charles says:

    Where to start?
    Best mom? Not selling access to her ex? Calling her daughter to talk her down? The queen is the most forgiving, nonjudgmental person I know?

    In the Bazaar photos, she looks like the feisty princess everyone would admire. Too bad reality is so far off.

  29. crtb says:

    Funny because I am hearing something so different than what the rest of you are reading.

    Many mothers call their daughters when they are in a stressfull situations. And their grown daughters talk them through it. So I don’t get why all of you are acting like this is so wacko. At her daughter’s age, mom and dughter are friends.

    What do you expect her to say about the queen? The truth? If she did, then she really would be nuts.

    Her ex husband is a moma’s boy who never protected her or took up for her. He let her drown. Unike his newphew and his new wife.

    She went through hell being married to Andrew. The press was brutal and so was the Queen. He was off having affairs 320 days a year. Then when they divorced all she got was $25,000 a year?!? Where can you live on that little money? Not in London. Which is one of the most expensive cities in the world. $25,000 wont cover food for a year. Her ex is super rich and he didn’t work for one penny of the millions that he has. If he was a decent guy, he would have given his ex wife enough money to live on so that she wouldn’t have tp put hereseld into the positions to get money that she did.

  30. badrockandroll says:

    I think that the Queen and Phillip were initially quite fond of Fergie, and viewed her as a healthy, outdoorsy alternative to their (then) morose bulemic other daughter in law. Truth is, Fergie p!ssed all that goodwill away, because from the very beginning she was making side deals with shady characters for freebies. Well nothing comes free, and her marital settlement (which she agreed to) was punitively low because she got caught with her toes in the cookie jar, so to speak. 0 She remains a ridiculously grasping and deluded/delusional person – I honestly believe that she is the British Phoebe Price

  31. Mitsey Martin says:

    She says her income from her divorce settlement is £15,000 – it sounds like she was given a lump sum to invest and this is the interest coming from it BUT if she has run up debts of millions no wonder she is on £15,000 a year, I would be cutting off her access to large funds as well! She makes me want to hit her in the face with an iron pipe!
