The First Fergie Takes A Bribe


Before there was a Fergie of the Black Eyed Peas, there was Sarah "Fergie" Ferguson who got her toes sucked in public by her lover and had a very public divorce from Prince Andrew. Yesterday, News Of The World did what they do best, trap someone. They sent an undercover reporter to try and bribe Fergie, and guess what? They succeeded. They didn't even have to work very hard at it. It took Fergie about 30 seconds to shovel $40,000 in cash into a bag and promise that as soon as she got another $750K she would provide access to her ex-husband so deals could be made.

Fergie apologized today and said it was because she is having money problems. Apparently the $3M she got paid from Weight Watchers went through her faster than Lindsay Lohan through a kilo of coke.

Way slimy.

Cheryl said...

Sleazy, but I'm not entirely convinced that Andrew knew nothing about this. He still supports her and lets her live in his home even though they have been divorced for years and the kids are grown up.

Casey said...

She seriously looks bad here - physically and lack of judgement wise.

I'm not sure how I feel about this. But I agree that if she could not live on 3 million, then she has money MANAGEMENT problems and living above her means.

Cheryl said...

Not just Weight Watchers money. She had royalties from the Budgie books (she stole the idea from another author), a supposed talk show deal with Oprah which never materialized, rich friends she sponges off of and various royal perks through Andrew. She didn't have to worry about supporting her daughters so she only had to fend for herself.

She got no alimony (other than his share of his naval salary. That's why she lives there for free. She had too much pride to take his and the Queen's ass to court when the divorce went down.

I suppose this is what happens when you're raised to "marry well" and you have no education (or common sense) to fall back on. I would like to feel sorry for her, but why can't she humble herself and go out a get a job, like millions of other women are forced to do. At worst, Starbucks is always hiring.

Is it just me, but when celebrities are 'broke' they always seem to find ways to travel around the world. Fergie's in LA right now. And she was in Cannes last week wasn't she? How do I get off my broke ass list, and get on to hers?

Wonder if she kept the $40K?

Nicola, you are soo right about some women who marry well. Easy street isn't always easy.

And right there's the answer why that $3 mil is gone, LA now, Cannes last week, etc., etc., etc.

Hasn't she always had money problems?

I thought she was better this; I can understand being desperate for money, but to pimp out the ex???

Not nice.

I bet Granny is pissed.

Jess said...

The definition for "poor" that celebrities have is way different than ours, as you all say she was in Cannes. Then "I'm poor" because I can't afford a 30,000 at night in a luxury suite.

No wonder the Queen hated her.

selenakyle said...

Daaaammmmmnnn, ha ha haaa!

Too bad for her.

Bitch told a reporter that Princess Diana's shoes gave her warts, so eff her!

nancer said...

she never knew how to act. she used to embarrass the royals all the time when she was married to andrew. but i think she and andrew have always stayed friendly. i wonder if they are now.

Gretchen said...

That's a shame, she always seemed kinda cool to me. But then again, class will out.

Jamie's Girl said...

Wow, I thought she was being a lady now.

Honestly, her kids are grown and the money has all but dried up.

nunaurbiz said...

FYI, they're saying now that she's offered to leave Andrew's residence, but that might be tricky because Buckingham Palace thinks she'll be too far out of control. So that's something to think about when you glibly say that she and Andrew are still friendly after the divorce.

She got next to nothing in the divorce because she publicly humiliated Andrew by flaunting her toe-sucking affair. She got some money, but wouldn't have fared any better had she gone to court.

I'm thinking she'll be stripped of her Duchess title very soon.

Fergie is a gold digging has-been. The Queen detested her for very good reasons. Gave her money to get on with her life and leave her family alone. Problem was, Fergie doesn't know how to manage money, just waste it on constant holidays.
The Duchess of Pork is a disgrace.
