Oprah Winfrey’s New Documentary: Finding Sarah (about Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York)

In this Sunday’s Parade Magazine, media goddess and gazillionaire, Oprah Winfrey discusses her new network, OWN, and the new documentary Finding Sarah… about Sarah Ferguson.


Any way, this six-part documentary (to be aired sometime in Spring 2011) follows the embarrassing saga of Sarah, Duchess of York and her ambition to change her pathetic life around.  The idea for the documentary can about after Miss Winfrey interviewed Sarah regarding her shady life and her attempt to receive “… £500,000 [for access to Prince Andrew]” from some dude.

I remember the last thing I said to her when I left the interview: ‘Don’t let me see you on Dancing with the Stars.’  [Then] She started emailing me and at one point asked what did I think of her doing a celebrity chef show.   And I said, ‘That’s not going to help you.  How are you going to rehabilitate yourself?’

Miss Winfrey goes on to discuss her idea of documenting Sarah in hopes that if she sees herself the way others do it might help her change her ways.  Sarah was apparently reluctant at first.  According to Miss Winfrey, Sarah said:

‘Let me think about it…’  She sent me an email about how it’s so difficult to give up going to Spain this year,  And I said, ‘You have no money.  People who don’t have money don’t go to Spain on holiday. HELLO!!!’

Ugh.  I have no respect for Sarah Ferguson and I highly doubt I will watch that crap-fest documentary.   But, if you do, let me know what you think of it.

  1. My sister and I were talking about Sarah Ferguson the other day and her very odd marriage to Prince Andrew. I could never understand why she behaved the way she did while married to Prince Andrew.

    My sister asked, ‘Could Prince Andrew be gay”. I told her that Donald Spoto wrote a book claiming Andrew is indeed gay. I think that Sarah knew Andrew was gay right off the bat therefore she saw this marriage as a joke but a huge stepping stone up into the world of royalty. I suspect that Andrew told her right off the bat that he was gay but said that he had to get married and have children. That would explain Sarah’s bizarre behavior during her marriage to him. It does seem that all of the Queen’s children have serious issues.

    1. I couldn’t agree with you more, Nancybee, in regards to their marriage.

      Sarah and Andrew seemed more like best buddies rather then a loving partnered couple. Is Andrew gay? I’m not so sure. I do remember reading that he loved the ladies especially a woman named Koo Stark. Why he decided to marry Sarah and not the other woman he dated remains a mystery. All I know is that she was completely immature and never suited for royal life.

      P.s. Nancybee, if you happen to watch the documentary program about Sarah on Oprah’s new channel, let me know what you think of it after the program.


  2. More on Sarah

    Of course, Andrew expected Sarah to go along with the program, be his dutiful wife and raise his children. But…..she couldn’t do it. She fell on her face. She does have the brains to ‘keep her mouth shut’ and has never uttered a bad word about her husband or any of the Royals.
