Sarah Ferguson is speaking for the first time about her efforts to make big bucks for access to her ex-husband, and she claims booze played a major role in her behavior, RadarOnline.com has learned.
Speaking to Oprah Winfrey, Ferguson said, "I'm aware of the fact that I've been drinking, you know, that I was not in my right place."
In a videotaped sting set up by a London newspaper, Ferguson is seen making a deal with someone she thought was a businessman who wanted an introduction to her ex, Prince Andrew. She agreed to make an introduction for 500,000 pounds ($718,000).
Oprah's Sarah Ferguson interview is set to air Tuesday.
