The late Lynn Redgrave was quoted a few years back calling Fergie a "Rent-a-Royal".

What I don't understand is why she's been crying broke all these years....she's sold books and been a spokesperson for Weight Watchers.

How humiliating for her and her family. ABC Nightly News did the story too, and it was so obvious what she was doing. And the Queen ain't happy. Understandably, neither is Prince Andrew.

I am not defending Sarah, but if the Queen of England was your mother in law, how easy would it be to make her happy?
I suspect rhe Queen is not the easiest mother in law to live with. or ex-mother in law.

True, I don't disagree with that, but she was caught red-handed selling access to her ex-husband for cash. It doesn't matter what kind of MIL ol' Liz is - this is shady.

I find this bizarre and disturbing.

She still lives a life of luxury but is always crying poor so I don't have much sympathy for her.

Here's tonight's very complete report (well, four minutes) from NBC Nightly News.

Scotland Yard says it's unlikely a crime.

She arrived in Los Angeles today to receive an award and has made a statement. She says she's devastated.

(For those interested in other things, the reporter at the 2:30 mark is a hunk! lol)

It's a little hard to believe that Andrew was completely clueless.

Gotta love those Brit tabloids. Sarah is the second high profiled person in as many weeks to be catch on tape saying things they would love to take back. LOL

What's equally sad is she is no longer tiffed, either :fragile: .

But I'm clueless when it comes to bribing royalty. Why would someone want to pay that much in the first place? :shuffle:

For the same reason we're talking about it here. Royals fascinate people, even though few admit it.

That's not my impression of the reason the reporter asked for access at all. He was posing as a businessman, and from the conversation, it seems that Andrew holds significant pull with certain things business-wise. The article describes Andrew as a "trade envoy" with influence on international deals.

ETA: Andrew is the UK Special Representative for International Trade and Investment.

(literally "no pryde" :( )



THE financial adviser photographed sucking Fergie's toes 18 years ago has told pals: "She should have listened to me."

John Bryan, 52, admitted he wasn't surprised she is deep in scandal after demanding 500,000 for access to her ex, Prince Andrew.

He told a friend: "She always wanted a first class lifestyle on an economy ticket."
