Sarah TV show 'unlikely to hit UK'

Sarah Ferguson thinks it's doubtful her new television series Finding Sarah could ever air in Britain.

"I think that Fergie baiting sells a lot of papers in Britain, and Fergie does tend to fall into the traps so could it air in Britain? Probably not without dramatic ramifications and negativity," she said.

Finding Sarah is a six-part series starting on June 12 on Oprah Winfrey's Network OWN, where the Duchess of York works on her self-esteem with the help of experts.

The 51-year-old said the most difficult lesson she had to learn was about regret and to accept that she can't change the past.

One regret she was likely referring to is the scandal last May when she was filmed by an undercover journalist, posing as an Indian businessman negotiating a payment to her for access to Prince Andrew.

Fergie maintains that she never really would have sold access to her former husband and that she needed the money for a friend.

"I knew this guy was wrong. I knew that he was a journalist. I had an instinct as it was and yet my people-pleasing addiction kept me going on that if he could help me and if he could invest in my business. And he also promised to build schools in Afghanistan that maybe then everyone would love me more or maybe then all my staff would be paid and you know what? It wasn't real," she said.

And Fergie insists she now has the proper tools to deal with her life.

"A thought comes in and it's a nasty thought, it's horrible about yourself... or horrible about someone else," she added.

"Change it. You just made it up. It's not real. So how are you allowing your thoughts to ruin your day if it's not real? You've made it up. That's it."
