She'll do so as long as sh has to. Once she's out of debt she'll start to bristle. That's why this time is important, because she needs to be taught self control.

Does she have a choice? If it's "take the advice or get cut off", she pretty much has to listen.

I think she will listen to him, I'm sure she's grateful to have his support and help at the moment. In her own way I think she probably appreciates him more now than even when they were married.
Yeah it is time for her to begin some sort of fight back, hideing away isn't her usual style.

If Andrew joins her on holiday in Spain next month the press will have a real field day, although they mightn't want to break with their tradition even in the current situation. Maybe now is a time for family unity.

Yes, that is a good advice. Perhaps she'll read it.

She's lucky that andrew doen't seem to be in a serious relationship at the moment. If he was she wouldn't be able to rely on him as much.

What's important is that she's very sensible in how she goes about clearing her debt. Her commercial and business contracts must be very professional and impressive, even if it takes her a few year years to clear her debts.

She could make a lot of very quick, easy money doing things like "celebrity rehab" but it could cost her everything, including her relationship with Andrew and maybe even her closeness with their girls.

I know people are surprised she hasn't pushed Andrew too far this time. The other side is that they have known each other since they were children, been through all they have been through together, and done everything to keep their family together since their split.
He probably doen't want to tear his family apart at this stage, what they have is probably worth saving.
She was such a fool to put it all on the line.

She brought Dallas to the Palace, I sure she could bring a bit of it to the Convent rather effortlessly.

I don't know. I think she will at first because she will have to, but I don't know if Sarah will listen to anyone for long. I think Sarah might really have to reach rock bottom financially, where no one is willing to give her "freebies", before she really does something about her overspending. I would never, ever write any one off as being unable to change, and I think Sarah can change her overspending ways, but unfortunately I think she still has a long way down to go before she changes. Right now she's probably in denial, waiting for the next "big one"--the big Weight Watchers-type-financial-deal, or the next financial saviour who can rescue her from all her problems. That seems to be how Sarah thinks.

I do think that if Sarah listens to anyone, it will be Andrew. I think she doesn't listen to a lot of people because she doesn't think they understand her, but she said in her autobiography that she promised to obey Andrew in her wedding vows because "to hear him was to hear my own soul." Maybe Andrew knows Sarah well enough to come up with some suggestions that she'll follow because they actually sound good to her.

On the other hand, this could end up with even Andrew telling Sarah he can't do any more to help her. If that ever happened, it could be the final wake-up-call Sarah needs.

I know, and I think Sarah is looking for the quick easy money and always has been. It's not that she isn't willing to work so much as that she wants things to happen right away, and if she has to wait a while or see more gradual results, she goes looking for the next "big thing." As she has said so often, if she had been stronger and "stayed the course", she probably wouldn't have divorced Andrew, but the minute Andrew wasn't there to support her in her marriage, she panicked and decided to get out. Sarah is just too impulsive for her own good.

Very astute observation rmay. I get that impression as well. As long as Sarah is in trouble, she listens, when she is out of trouble or on her way out of trouble she tends to dump all the advice and not stick to the plan.

One thing Sarah will have learned over the past 2 months is exactly who her real, genuine, true friends are. From now on these are the only people she should trust and whose advice she should take on board.
Speaking of friends "Mr Fishfingers" seems to be off the scene, he is a long time in business and I would have assumed he could point her in the right direction.

You are right about friends, I don't think Mr. Fishfingers is a true one as he has swum away from the scandal. . . .

I doubt that Branson could be called a true friend as much as a guy who knows how to play up to the RF. I'm not calling him a bad guy but it seems that he's more into staying within the royal picture than anything else.

Exactly! The saying "Friends in need are friends indeed" has never been truer for Sarah.

Best. Post. Ever.

Sarah should agree to whatever the BRF says in return for handling her finances point forward. Mainly that should include 1) shutting up and staying out of sight; 2) no more alcohol or drugs; 3) intensive psychiatric treatment.

That should be her job: obeying the rules. It would make a refreshing departure from her past.
