CHICAGO (AP) - Sarah Ferguson says she initially was trying to get money for a friend when she was caught on video offering access to her former husband, Prince Andrew, for $724,000.

In an interview with Oprah Winfrey that aired Tuesday, the Duchess of York says she wanted $38,000 for her friend, whom she wouldn't identify. She says she's not quite sure why she asked for the rest of the money.

Ferguson says she is in deep financial debt, but she wouldn't elaborate. She also says she doesn't know what she would have done with the rest of the money.

Ferguson apologized for what she had done telling Winfrey that she knew what she was doing was wrong at the time.
