Fergie Opens Up on Scandal to Oprah - Sarah Ferguson Explains Sting

Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York, will appear on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" to clear the air. Fergie was caught in an undercover sting set up by the News of the World newspaper.
The video from the UK tabloid showed Sarah Ferguson promising to introduce an undercover reporter posing as a wealthy businessman to Prince Andrew, who has been the UK's special representative for international trade and investment since 2001.
The charge for the insider access to the prince was set at £500,000 (just over $725,000 US), but the deal was dead as the person making the offer was a reporter and had video tape rolling.
The tape continued to roll and Fergie's words would later be broadcast worldwide online and picked up by nearly every TV outlet in the western world.
Can Oprah save her?
We should know soon enough. "The interview with Duchess of York will air Tuesday on The Oprah Winfrey Show," a spokeswoman for the program said Thursday.
