(Newser) – The Duchess of York’s embarrassing scandal, in which she was busted for trying to sell access to Prince Andrew, may have a happy ending: Oprah Winfrey, who gave Sarah Ferguson a venue in which to discuss the mess, is now offering her a talk show of her own. “Oprah has always been impressed by Sarah’s ability to pick herself up and reinvent herself,” a source tells the Mail.

“She feels Sarah will be someone viewers of her new channel will be able to relate to on many levels—she’s a divorcee, a working mother, someone who has made some very public mistakes, and a woman who, like Oprah, constantly battles with her weight,” the source continues. The show would be broadcast on the Oprah Winfrey Network, and it could help Fergie considerably: She is reportedly more than $3 million in debt. Click here to find out how she went broke.
