Duchess doubtful her TV show could air in Britain
“I think that Fergie baiting sells a lot of papers in Britain, and Fergie does tend to fall into the traps so could it air on Britain? Probably not without dramatic ramifications and negativity,” Ferguson says.
“Finding Sarah” is a six-part series airing on Oprah Winfrey’s Network, OWN, where Ferguson goes on a soulful journey to rebuild her self-esteem. Along the way, she is helped by experts (and friends of Winfrey) including Dr. Phil McGraw and financial adviser Suze Orman.
Ferguson says the most difficult lesson she had to learn was about regret and to accept that she can’t change the past.
One regret she is likely referring to is the scandal from May of last year where she was filmed by an undercover journalist, posing as an Indian businessman negotiating a payment to the duchess for access to Prince Andrew.
Ferguson maintains that she never really would have sold access to her former husband and that she needed the money for a friend.
Now, she also says she had a feeling something wasn’t right at the time and knows she should have listened to her gut.
“I knew this guy was wrong. I knew that he was a journalist. I had an instinct as it was and yet my people-pleasing addiction kept me going on that if he could help me and if he could invest in my business. And he also promised to build schools in Afghanistan that maybe then everyone would love me more or maybe then all my staff would be paid and you know what? It wasn’t real.”
Ferguson says she has the proper tools now to deal with her life. She can spot and dismiss negative thoughts that used to plague her.
“A thought comes in and it’s a nasty thought, it’s horrible about yourself … or horrible about someone else,” she says. “Change it. You just made it up. It’s not real. So how are you allowing your thoughts to ruin your day if it’s not real? You’ve made it up. That’s it.”
“Finding Sarah” premieres June 12 on OWN.
