Will Fergie Be in Oprah's Debt?

According to a story in the U.K. Daily Mail, the Oprah Winfrey Network may be offering a talk show on the cable channel to Sarah Ferguson, the 50-year-old Duchess of York, author of the Budgie series of children's books, and debtor extraordinaire.

The Daily Mail account said Winfrey, 56, was impressed by Fergie's mea culpa appearance on  Oprah's talk show last spring when she fessed up to soliciting payment in return for access to her former hubby, Prince Andrew. Press accounts suggest the former Princess may be in hock to the tune of 2 million pounds.

Hard to guess what kind of ratings Fergie might draw. After all, the storybook marriage to charming Prince Andrew happened in 1986. Viewers may be forgiven if they react to news of "Fergie" getting a talk show on the Oprah Network by saying: "She's looking the worse for wear since the Black Eyed Peas broke up."

The Daily Mail will never be confused with The New York Times, so the tireless staff of "TUOL" is not programming its DVR just yet.  If the rumored tv "marriage" does pan out, there will be dancing in the boardroom of Weight Watchers.
