Oh, hell. The Duchess of York/Sarah Ferguson/Fergie is totally ready to make the world fall in love with her again.
According to the Daily Mirror, Ferguson has taken meetings with Kruger Cowne, a talent & rights management agency that works with Bob Geldolf, Joss Stone and Elle MacPherson on everything from sending them on speaking engagements and personal appearances, to helping them to become brand ambassadors.
On January 14th, Fergie showed off her slim figured in an emerald green gown at the The Lady Garden Gala hosted by Chopard in aid of Silent No More Gynaecological Cancer Fund and Cancer Research UK at Claridge’s Hotel in London.
The Daily Mail reports that Fergie will release Tea and Gratitude with the Duchess, a 128-page book next year about making “the perfect cup of tea” and entertaining.
Before you say “That sounds a lot like Pippa Middleton’s book,” please note that Fergie’s book will feature her “signature sense of humor” and “trademark whimsy” (?).
I’d be more likely to buy something called It Is What It Is: I’m a Hot Mess.
Tea and Gratitude will feature “Tips and tricks from the epitome of royalty,” like “Elegant recipes for tea drinkers.
“The act of drinking tea is a form of meditation, a way of taking time, and a reminder to be grateful. The book will be peppered with inspirational anecdote.”
In addition to her flights of page-turning fancy, Fergie hawks hair straighteners and food processors on American TV, all part of her website, Duchess Discoveries.
in 2015, Fergie bought a ski chalet in Verbier, Switzerland with her ex-husband, Prince Andrew.
Reports claim she’s currently dating businessman Manuel Fernandez, 47, and moved out of Royal Lodge at Windsor, the home she shared with Andrew and their two daughters, Beatrice and Eugenie, even after their 1996 divorce.
Fergie is making an attempt to become a more “independent” woman by moving out.
It’s been said that Her Majesty doesn’t mind Fergie, but Prince Philip cannot stand her after the humiliation she caused the family (having her toes sucked by a man who was not her husband while on holiday, attempting to sell Prince Andrew’s information to an undercover journalist posing as a businessman.
