The New York Post is reporting that Oprah Winfrey personally called Sarah Ferguson and offered her the opportunity to host a “docu-series” about the financial problems faced by the Dutchess.  Fergie, as the Dutchess of York is often called, was recently entangled in a scandal for accepting a $500,000 bribe for access to her ex-husband, Prince Andrew.  Video of the Dutchess accepting payment was released to the media and caused embarassment for the Dutchess and the Royal family.  Fergie appeared on Oprah to talk about her financial problems and the embarrassing release of the video.

According to the New York Post report, Winfrey was impressed that the Dutchess was willing to discuss her mistake and take a hard, critical look at herself.  Fergie’s decision about the offer has not been announced.

It would seem that gainful employment for Fergie would be a good thing for all involved.  The financial problems endured by the Dutchess since her divorce from Andrew are not a secret.  If the queen is unwilling to help Fergie meet her financial needs and obligations, she has to be able to support herself and her two girls.  It will be interesting to see if Fergie accepts Oprah’s offer and if the queen allows the deal to happen.
