Though Sarah says she originally only wanted $40,000, she eventually asked for 500,000 pounds.
"I just took a long shot," she says. "I must have been a little bit worse for wear, and I think I just went, 'If you're in for 40, okay, well, if you want to do business in the future then, you know.' To be honest with you, I can't even think where my head was. I just want to cringe."
There have been reports from News of the World, the organization that broke the story, that they received a tip from a royal associate that Sarah had done something like this before and that's why the sting was set up. Sarah denies that she's ever attempted anything similar in the past. "I think this has taken six months for them to get to this point, and I think I've been like a huge, overtrusting, idiotic, stupid woman that went and looked for the situation," she says. "That's all I can say, really."
