Sarah Ferguson plots lucrative career move to ‘help Andrew pay mounting bills’
Sarah Ferguson calls Prince Andrew a ‘good, kind man’
Sarah Ferguson has set her sights on a new career move in a bid to help her ex-husband Prince Andrew amid mounting bills, according to reports.
The Duchess of York is hoping to land a chat show in America after meeting with TV producer Amy Rosenblum at New York’s Regency Hotel.
Ms Rosenblum, who was a long-time producer of America’s top-rated breakfast programme, NBC’s Today Show, told the Mail on Sunday: “Sarah told me, ‘I want a show! I want a show!’
“I did a pilot with her about 15 years ago. We were up against Ellen DeGeneres and ultimately they went with Ellen.
“But Sarah was really good when we did the pilot. We have been friends since then.”

The producer declined to comment on any specific pitches that may be in the pipeline.
But an insider at ABC TV, part of giant Disney Studios, said: “Fergie could reasonably expect to earn around £2million a year, but that figure would go up considerably should her show be a hit.
“She’s always gone down well in America. She’s never been too proud to promote the heck out of anything, be it one of her books or WeightWatchers.
“Americans respect someone who hustles.”

The ABC source said there is a gap in the market after Ellen DeGeneres retired.
She built a fortune in excess of £100million and is friends with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who are neighbours of hers in Montecito.
Fergie is said to be keen to help Prince Andrew with bills after essential maintenance work at the Royal Lodge in Windsor Great Park is expected to cost £2million.
Andrew had faced losing his 30-room mansion until he paid £200,000 for urgent roof repairs this summer.
A source said: “It’s true Sarah wants to help Andrew stay in what she considers their family home. She lives at Royal Lodge when she’s in the UK. It’s very much their family’s base.
“Andrew has lost so much. She will do everything she can to help him keep the house, even though it may prove untenable in the long term.”
Earlier this year, it had been suggested that King Charles was planning on kicking Andrew and Fergie out of their home, but this is no longer the case.
Fergie has recently recovered at the mansion following urgent surgery after being diagnosed with breast cancer.
