(Newser) – Sarah Ferguson is scrambling to apologize after an undercover tabloid reporter filmed her offering to sell access to Prince Andrew for $723,000. "Look after me and he'll look after you," she told a News of the World staffer pretending to be a business exec. "I can open any door you want." Her ex-husband is a UK special envoy for trade and apparently knew nothing of the scheme. Ferguson, whose title remains Duchess of York, released a statement saying she's "devastated" and "regretful," reports the BBC.
