Amazing video out of London this morning, which shows former Duchess of York Sarah Ferguson selling access to her ex-husband Prince Andrew for $750,000. The deal was set up by an undercover reporter from the British tabloid News of the World, who posed as a Middle Eastern tycoon looking for access to the Prince’s network.

“He meets the most amazing people,” Fergie says on the video. “And he throws them my way."

Since her $3 million deal with Weight Watchers ran out in 2007, Fergie said she has been in financial dire straits. She said in a statement after the story ran, that her financial problems are “no excuse for a serious lapse in judgment, and I am very sorry that this has happened. I very deeply regret the situation and the embarrassment caused."
