Thousands of military wives endure lengthy forced separations from their husbands, many without the financial resources that Fergie had.
But they manage to remain faithful to their husbands and not...

Well, they (at least, the Queen) could cut him off financially.
I doubt Andrew could get along on his navy pension; he's a man who is used to the best of everything, and I don't see him giving up...

Although I don't believe Andrew is considered brilliant, I do think he's smart enough not to remarry Fergie.
As it is, he can distance himself a bit from her peccadilloes, but if they remarry?

I also disagree.
Fergie is presenting herself as a public figure, and as someone mentioned, you can't have it both ways: put yourself in the public eye when it's convenient and then request...

I'm not sure I would agree, Osipi.

Not judging by the comments about this; they are a bit nasty, to put mildly. If it's true that what the public mostly wants is for Sarah to go away, it doesn't bode well for her media career.

I'm really doubtful Sarah's show will do well in terms of ratings.

Many watched the wedding, but ratings dropped precipitously after William and Kate drove off in that car; I read that television...

Maybe, BUT.
He only said what has been said before, or at least intimated.

Doesn't she get some help from a ghost writer?
(I've always believed she did).

But I agree with you that it's unlikely she could ever make a living as a writer; for one thing, those...

Okay, here goes...is it absolutely certain that Sarah Ferguson gets no remuneration for charity work?

No stipend, no funding, no expenses?

Because even for non-profits, considerable sums are...

It would be lovely if each of us were only judged by our best qualities, but it doesn't work like that. We're judged as a whole, good and bad.

As for being part of a special social elite,...

Good point; I've heard that the RF is usually comped for drinks and meals, for example.

There are some family members (like William) who insist on paying, but many do not.

Even in the early days, when everyone called Sarah refreshing and fun, I never liked her. I thought she was bumptious and self-absorbed.

I now believe she is completely selfish and has no regard...

Perhaps Sarah has a "pay or play" deal with Oprah?
For her sake, I hope so.

I read it in one of the newspapers about the time the invitations were sent (I suppose it was to account for why Sarah didn't get one).
However, now I don't remember which one!

I really doubt that Sarah has so many generous friends. If she did, she probably wouldn't have gotten into debt in the first place.

Some of the associates she has made lately, much like Andrew's,...

It's interesting to note that both Diana and Sarah were unhappily married, yet their divorces didn't improve matters but just sunk them deeper in misery.

It makes me wonder if perhaps they should...
