Fergie Set to Explain Herself on "Oprah" Next Week
NEW YORK (CBS/AP) The Duchess of York is taking her side of the story to the queen of television.
The troubled Sarah Ferguson will appear on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" next Tuesday and is set to talk about her recent scandal.
The program says it will be Ferguson's first TV interview since the news broke last weekend.
Just days ago, the Britain's News of the World reported that Ferguson was caught on video promising to introduce an undercover reporter posing as a "rich businessman" to her former husband, Prince Andrews. The published video shows "Fergie" seeking more than $700,000 for the exchange.
But no scandal will keep "Fergie" from making her rounds of public appearances. On Wednesday the Duchess appeared before booksellers and librarians at a New York trade show to promote her latest series of children's books. She didn't address the scandal directly during a panel with other authors at the Book Expo America but made a few references to it.
Her four books, "Matthew and the Bullies," "Emily's First Day of School," "Ashley Learns About Strangers" and "Michael and His New Baby Brother" go on sale in the U.S. this August.
