I feel so sad for Sarah.

I am sure my upbringing was not unique in that we were discouraged from "rubbernecking" at roadside accidents or trash talking anyone that was clearly "not right". The refrain was "just look away".

I find myself wanting to look away from Sarah - as if witnessing her ... er ... decline ... is somehow bad manners or exposes my own character as being a little trashy. I had the same problem when clips/photos of Brittney Spears would show up on the news or appear on magazine covers. I *wanted* to look because there is an odd sort of fascination with watching someone fall apart at the seams - but it felt wrong.

Sarah is living in the aftermath of her collective decisions. She is sleeping in the bed she made and treading the road she paved ... which means that watching her try to "understand" and "analyze" her mistakes and missteps is ... like listening to a seventeen year old tell you why they did not come home on time (some friend needed assistance, I needed to help them!), tried that funky smelling hand-rolled (everyone else was doing it and it's NOT addictive, Mom!), failed math (the teacher did not get me, did not understand my math needs) and spent all their allowance at the arcade (I got playing and before I knew it ... they should NOT make those games so addictive!).

Sarah needs to *really* accept her mistakes, take a back seat, get a job, stop embarrassing her daughters and the BRF and step up to the plate she is dancing around. There's no home run, game winning swing in this scenario.

Agreed. You have to wonder does Andrew have to pay for a bad choice for the rest of his life. I know I will get beatdown for this one but marrying Sarah was a bad choice. However people will only do to you what you allow them to. Could be maybe he doesn't realize much of his life & own happiness he has given up and may think because he has been guilted for so many years that he may actually think he does not deserve better. I will also say that over the years Andrew has missed the chance to teach his daughters about self respect & not taking whatever crap someone wants to dump on you. Showing them that if you truly love someone there are things you just don't do. I know that people who are drug addicted to drugs & alcohol hurt people they love which causes them to make the hard choice to wash their hands of them. It's amazing all the things that we accept which can grow to be things that we regret. The whole thing is just sad.

Darken her hair and cut it and you would think it was Eugenie ... I had never noticed that before

Andrew's bad choice is that he hasn't moved on. It makes you wonder about him... She was living in his house since the divorce! One thing I can say for them both though, is that they have done an admirable job raising their children.

I haven't seen the show- just clips.

I think that her real therapy will begin when, instead of focusing on her mother's abuse of her, she starts asking why she is abusing Beatrice and Eugenie this way. They are two lovely young women and she is constantly and needlessly humiliating them.

If she can answer why she had a man sucking her toe while her daughter was standing right there, she'll know the root of her problem.

It isn't a lack of "self" worth. It's a lack of respect for OTHER people. She has a compulsive need to degrade and disrespect the people who love her. Even her mother, in her death.

Sarah is the ultimate in self centered. The woman does not think of anyone but herself except when it applies to her or can draw attention to help her.

It's sad how she keeps repeating over and over how much she loves Andrew and how much Andrew loves her...she lets everyone know that he had her photo with him at the WillKat wedding. Touching, isn't it?

See, here is how life works...one makes choices and then no matter how they turn out later on, deal with it and don't spend the rest of your life alternating between whingeing and navel gazing over them.

Sarah was no teenager when she made the decision to dishonor her marriage vows because it got difficult and "boring"...She was at least thirty. She took vows in Church, and she threw it away thinking she had found freedom and a better way to live with God knows which one of her lovers at that time.

The only way she can redeem herself now is to reclaim her dignity. And she can only do that by shutting her mouth and not embarrassing her poor children any more than she already has.

Even if it means she won't get a fat paycheck from Oprah Winfrey.

She just happened to mention "in the passing" to the undercover reporter that she could get access to Andrew? OMG what a liar she is! She was caught fair and square setting up her squalid deal like something out of the Sopranos yet still refuses to take responsibility (To anyone who doubts me and hasn't seen the video I challenge you to watch it). I remember her being interviewed years ago on British T.V. by Ruby Wax who asked her straight out if she had sex with Steve Wyatt when pregnant with Eugenie and, instead of denying it, said that she phoned her sister in Australia and asked her, "That didn't happen, did it?" to which she then said that her sister told her that it didn't. I mean, telling an interviewer that she had to ask her SISTER if she had sex with another man whilst pregnant! Her children were tiny when that interview was done and even then I wondered whether she was right in the head. Since then I have come to the conclusion that she is fine mentally but is just a bad liar in that she forgets what she has said in the past when re-telling the same story.

Actually Faux News(aka Fake Noise) is the perfect venue for Sarah to spout off...it's quite perfect in fact.

Maybe they will offer her a job, she will fit right in over there!

I am speechless after that Fox clip. In the NOTW video she discusses in great detail about how this $40,000 was just an installment and gives instructions about how the rest of the cash can be wired to her etc. When she then gives these totally false versions of events does she forget that the internet is out there and we can actually see the real state of affairs for ourselves? I know I am geting hyper but she just gets me this way! AARGH!

angela like many emotionally unsettled, narcissistic people Sarah has her view or reality and sticks to it, facts be damned.

She is in major denial about her life and herself, for all her psychobabble about insight. I don't expect she will ever change.

Sarah seems to think if she says it outloud enough it must be true! This woman is only going to get worse this show is simply feeding her delusions. Andrew needs to chuck her out so she can really work on herself.

I found this very interesting and thought I'd pass it on here. In Sarah's current events it was noticed that the 4th installment of "Finding Sarah" is taking a break for a week and being too curious for my own good, I went seeking to find out why.

What I came across on the OWN network site is a message there from Sarah herself. Now what I am curious about is this. Did Sarah write this posting herself or was it written by someone else? If this is actually from Sarah herself, she really is quite delusional methinks.

The post:

A Message From The Duchess

Posted: Tue 06/28/2011 01:00 PM


Thank you to everyone for the overwhelming comments of support and encouragement for Finding Sarah!

I have been reading the words you've so thoughtfully written to me and to my family right here on Oprah.com, and I want you all to know how grateful I am that you are watching the show, and have taken the time to come to the website and share your thoughts.

I hope that we can continue to learn and grow together on my journey each Sunday night on OWN!

Many Thanks,

Sarah Ferguson, The Duchess of York

If Andrew chucks her out, who's going to look after her? Beatrice! That's why he can't chuck her out. Sarah is too mentally unhinged to look after herself. Andrew said it all at his 50th birthday party...he has three children.

Until now, I've given Sarah the benefit of the doubt.

But, having seen the "A Message from the Duchess" , it's scary stuff.
Co-counselling is okay, but this goes over the top, IMO.

Even though I really don't think Sarah is in residence at Royal Lodge that often as she seems to be globe hopping a lot of times and spending time now in the US promoting her new book, I would think that any adult would really be bothered by the fact that they don't have a place of their own to call home. With this in mind, I think it would be wise for Sarah to actually put down roots somewhere that she call call her own. That would greatly give her a sense of stability and a feeling of independence that she can retreat to her own world when she needs to and take the burden off of Andrew and her girls. Perhaps one of Sarah's deep rooted fears is actually being alone with herself. I don't know.

Going through different websites, I found one article from the Daily Mail dated from February of 2010 which tells how poorly her last book release of the "Little Red" series did. The sales so far of "Finding Sarah" I couldn't find any information on so obviously its not hitting the best seller lists. Once all the publicity of the series and the book has died down, she's going to need some kind of a concrete plan to pull her life together.
