Diane Sawyer and "PrimeTime Live" have won the Fergie chase. They'll get the first big TV interview with Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, since her headline-emblazing split last summer from Prince Andrew and her topless kissing romp with her financial adviser.
The interview, which will air next Thursday on "PrimeTime Live," was conducted yesterday in Warsaw, where Fergie is visiting cancer-stricken children.
NBC's Maria Shriver had a long-standing commitment from Fergie to do an interview, but Ms. Shriver was unable to fly overseas at this time because she's recovering from viral meningitis.
Why is Fergie itching to chat now? Of course, she's got something to promote. She has a book coming out soon.
