Pic 21.1.2008

Here's a pic of Sarah at an event she had on Monday,
she visited the Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza "to talk
candidly about her life as part of the British royal family
and her life since her highly publicized marriage ended"

---> Pic
---> Article

The most interesting part is the following one, as the
other comments aren't that new
" In the campaign for U.S. president, Ferguson said, she favors Sen.
Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York. "I really like Hillary a lot. She's been around like me.""

Sarah doesn't use her former status at all, does she? It's really somewhat sad but also annoying.

Oh my gosh! I tell ya, that woman just doesn't think does she? Right now Mrs. Clinton is engaged in a smear campaign of Barak Obama headed up by her husband, Bill Clinton. Now, I'm a Republican, but I can live with Barak as President. He's a good, decent, honest man. And he doesn't deserve this from the Clintons' though it's par for their course. Does Sarah really know what she's saying???

I think the notion that Obama is being smeared by the Clintons depends a lot on one's political outlook, and we don't permit non-royal-related political discussions because they tend to turn ugly very fast. However, I think, considering that Mrs Clinton seems to have remained faithful to her husband while he went off having affairs left and right, Sarah's comment about Hillary having "been around a lot like me" is rather bewildering. I could see her saying it about Bill Clinton, but Hillary?

Ditto, Russophile.

So, from Sarah's comment about Hillary having been around like her, can we deduce that Andrew cheated on Sarah? That is something I've not heard before--certainly something I did not expect.

I can't say I follow politics in the US but these bits made me chuckle -

spoke before the nearly sold-out show - Diana and I had the most wonderful friendship, but the press was always comparing us two," she said - The world's children deserve to have the life my children had

Perhaps she didn't listen to the Squidgy tapes and had forgotten that Diana had fallen out with her.

I'm sure the worlds children would be happy to have 1000% of the life her children had! Talk about ditsy land!

Well, at some point they had the most wonderful (?) friendship. So it's not that it's an inaccurate account, rather, one which forgets to make mention of the dissolution of ties which ensued some years later...

If someone could just lift the rug a little while I sweep Sarah's unpleasant memories underneath, that would be great..hehe.

Thanks, Ice. The pic of Sarah is actually pretty decent - no crazy stockings that we can see. I found that comment about H. Clinton and her having been around rather odd, too. Maybe there was more to it.

Does anyone remember a story that one of the major British fashion magazines did on Sarah called "Don't Shoot the Duchess?" It was during her time when she was being "advised" by John Bryan.

Fire at Sarah Ferguson's home

Here is a link to an article in the Daily Mail about a fire that occurred at the home of Sarah Ferguson:

Pics 31.1.2008

Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York attends 'The Importance of
Being Earnest', Vaudeville Theatre, London, Britain - 31 Jan 2008

** Pic 1 ** Pic 2 **

Stars of To The Manor Born Penelope Keith and Peter Bowles pose
with Sarah Ferguson during the Important of Being Earnest after
party at the Cafe in the Crypt, St.Martin in the Fields, central London:

With that new hair style she reminds me a lot of the Sarah in the mid 1990s.

She must have found a sale on ugly patterned stockings!

As for the outfit--it could have worked but the neckline of the blouse was all wrong for the jacket. Poor Sarah, she needs someone to help dress her.

I actually thought Sarah looked younger in that picture. Now I realize the hairstyle from ten years ago gave me that impression.

Sarah needs her makeup at all times! It's not so much the lines - she always had that "craggy" look- she needs makeup!! At least her teeth are not so yellow looking.

As someone who is passing 40 and having to deal with lines for the first time, can you all be a little kinder to us that are going through this for the first time? Its not an easy experience (and don't get me started on the wildness of grey hair)

Amen..on both accounts. Grey/white hair and facial lines here too.

I think Sarah's had her hair colored a bit darker? It looks richer than it did the last time I saw her on TV. I like it. That being said--she needs some face color to "warm up" the face a bit.
