An irate Sarah Ferguson storms out of interview

Aug. 12, 2011 at 11:55 AM ET

Sarah Ferguson’s manager has called it an “ambush” interview, and show promos refer to it as “the weirdest interview you’ll ever see,” but either way, there’s no denying that the Duchess of York’s brief talk with Australia’s “60 Minutes” is bound to make for must-see TV.

 

In a clip from the upcoming show, Ferguson can be seen growing increasingly irritated with interviewer Michael Usher. At various points, she wags her fingers, sighs, rolls her eyes and even tells producers to “delete that bit.” She also walked right out at one point — and later walked back in.

What upset her so much? According to the Daily Telegraph, it was all due to the fact that Usher showed the ex-wife of Prince Andrew a video of her now-infamous encounter with an undercover reporter, wherein she offered to “open doors” to her ex for the right price. That’s all it took.

"She did walk out when she was ambushed — no, it was entrapment — but after cooling down she said to me, '---- them, let's do this,' and she did, but it was a banal interview and her demeanor reflected that,” Ferguson’s manager in Australia, John Scott, told the paper.
