Okay!

If you wish to see the interview go to

www.nmsn/60minutes.com.au

It was a little uncomfortable for me, I've said previously that I don't believe Sarah should be doing interviews.

IMO she is seeking approval & respect, but doing it all wrong.

If she stays away from media and quietly lives her life, supporting her lovely daughters, (whom she adores - no doubt about it), and her former Husband...she will, in-time, find what she is looking for.

I wish her well, but I was sad for her watching this.

P.S I thought she looked amazing in the black outfit, and her make up was great.

It would be great if she could do this but...she also has no income and so has to get one - her only way of doing so is to sell herself.

This just makes me incredibly sad.

Not that I agree or admire what she is doing, just that this is what her life has become. Huh, maybe it has always been this way since divorcing Andrew?

I know, and this makes me sad too.

My wish for her is that she find true happiness.

The reason Sarah has to "sell herself" now is that she allowed the riches of her own making as well as those of her divorce settlement run through her fingers. I consider that, quite frankly, as appropriate consequences. Bed, make, lie.

shari - thank you for the link!

Sarah's almost constant mistakes and follies etc are almost constantly before us because of her appearances in the media, intentionally or otherwise [e.g. Fake Sheikh!!] There is an old Engish joke that those felt to be unintelligent should always 'keep their mouths shut' in order not to confirm it!!!

Again, the media alone is costing her money in terms of representatives and as both you and I think her best decision would be to ignore the media, our "solution" would also have the needed benefit of cutting down on her costs. I wish Dr. Phil would have confronted her on her addiction to media attention... Maybe then, something positive could have emerged from her participation in that reality television debacle.

Sarah, Sarah... Almost all of us wish you well, but most don't understand why you keep undercutting and sabotaging yourself via your media relations. This is a great time for recourse to the traditional British "stiff upper-lip".

i saw 60 minutes with Sarah on New Zealand tv last night, quite by accident. The thing that got me was how 'tight' she looked; closed in. Tight in her facial attitude and tight in her answers; i did feel sorry for the interviewer; i don't think he asked her anything out of the ordinary (he looked honestly baffled when she walked out); she's not done herself any favours with anything she's done after the sting; she should have laid low, sorted out her problems, both financial and otherwise, PRIVATELY, and then we would, i feel, all have had more sympathy for her.

Having watched the interview, I agree that she didn't come across well at the point where she walked out. But in her defence, I think that there is a lot of trauma associated with her memories of the NOTW sting - you just need to read the first chapter of Finding Sarah to appreciate what a profound impact it had on her life, it what a horrendous time she went through in the aftermath of it.

Yes, she was overly defensive, but can you blame her after the mauling she has had from the media in the last 20 years? It seems that she felt the interviewer was trying to "trick" her into saying certain things (a wrong view for me - I felt the questions were reasonable). There may be a sense of persecution here in view of how she WAS tricked by the NOTW and how her words or actions have often been twisted to put her in a bad light. EllieCat says she lookled "closed in" - of course, after her traumatic representation by the media, it must be very hard not to act defensively!

As for whether she should do interviews at all... Sarah is an author with a new book on sale, so she needs to promote her product. I don't see this as an addiction to publicity - it is a necessary part of how she lives. If people don't want her to be in debt again, she has to support herself through her books and her media work. And this is far more than just trading on Royal connections - it is a career, a form of self-expression and fulfillment. This is who she is, and there are many people who genuinely appreciate that.

Of course she'd be tight, she had to have been a little worried going into an interview with someone who wasn't going to fawn over her. It's why she snapped, we saw it weeks back when she popped off at the other interviewer. It's only going to get worse because most people aren't like her buddy Piers Morgan who will softball her questions.

I am not sure trick is the right word since Sarah quite willingly accepted the cash and promised to provide access to Andrew. Sarah keeps saying she was tricked, but never seems able to reasonably explain why she took the money and promised the access. That is what she keeps running away from, and any serious informed journalist will question this any time she sits down for an interview that is not a puff piece.

"Persecution" seems to be a theme of Sarah's: persecution by media (which I agree was unfair to her when it was about her appearance during her marriage), persecution by the "grey men", persecution now by the interviewers who ask her sticky questions. I think that Sarah is unable to admit to her selling access to Andrew, either to herself or to anyone else. If she offered a confession and showed genuine remorse, she could possibly recover from this. But if she keeps acting in this defensive denial, her stocks will continue to decline. Plus, it's not healthy for her personally.

I agree. Sarah at her best, has a very likeable personality and if she had showed genuine remorse, IMHO she would have recovered from the access scandal. But now I am beginning to doubt that she will ever be able to recover from "Finding Sarah" and the interviews that she has done. I suspect that it is too late to change her tune now.

If Sarah was going to change and admit to it she would have done it by now. She has done plenty of interviews and the whole Oprah show and she still hasn't really admitted her own wrong doing. Just that she was tricked and she was the victim, she is always the victim the press only write the bad stuff about her. What good stuff has she done lately? I don't think she is ever going to admit it and I don't think she can recover. Finding Sarah was a bad idea she admitted it was so she could revive her "brand". But that is way too tarnished now. If she had off been honest she would have no need to be scared by interviewers and their questions and if she had off written the truth in her book she would have no need to be afraid either. Just because she has rewritten her own history doesn't change the reality. Any interviewers in the future have her own words to trip her up she would be better off not doing any interviews. Brand Sarah is pretty much dead and buried and I think she knows it!

I would love to know what made them think she would do it? They never said what caused them to think up the sting in the first place. Sarah better hope she only gets fluffy types of interviews I for one would love a proper in depth one and hear her explain why they chose her in the first place! I doubt she would ever do it she couldn't cope with the 60 minutes one well she would blow a fuse.

Sarah worked for the Murdoch organization post-divorce. My thoughts are that they gained knowledge of what pushed her buttons then.
