finding sarah OWNSarah Ferguson -- a.k.a., the original "Fergie" -- talks about her much-publicized fall from grace on the premiere of her new six-part documentary series, 'Finding Sarah' (Sun., 9PM ET on OWN).

The Duchess of York discussed the downside of being plucked form obscurity to become part of the Royal Family, and she relived the scandal that led the media to dub her an "outcast" and the "Duchess of Disgrace."

Ferguson was caught on tape by a U.K. tabloid last year trying to sell access to her ex-husband, Prince Andrew. Re-examining the event, Ferguson confessed that she was "broke and hurting" when she made the deal, and that she was forced into the situation in order to pay back a friend who was in desperate need of cash.

News from Oprah and Martha

Oprah WinfreyWe have two pieces of news from the talk show world today. First, Oprah Winfrey's upcoming OWN network now has a tagline. The tagline is "it's your life ... own it". This tagline is probably better than the proposed one "I have more money than all of you combined and will use it to conquer the world ... MWA HA HA".

In other news, Martha Stewart is following in the steps of Oprah and leaving daytime syndication for a cable deal. Her new show is slated to run on the Hallmark Channel and the network will also run Martha-owned programming after her own show. This can be taken as a sign of the diminishing power of network television as well as the increasing power of Martha Stewart.

The question we must really ask is: if Martha and Oprah combined into one entity that consumed all of daytime television, what would that entity be called? Marah? Optha? The All-Consuming Beast?
