Sarah Ferguson, the original Fergie, is turning to a reality TV series to explore her life.

The new docu-series, "Finding Sarah," will be aired on Oprah Winfrey's OWN channel and will feature Dr. Phil and Suze Orman as she begins to share what the network calls in a press release "her toughest challenge yet, rebuilding her life and career" after a scandal last year left the Duchess of York at "rock bottom," reports

Ferguson, 51, was married to Queen Elizabeth II's second son, Prince Andrew, Duke of York, from 1986 to 1996.

In the premiere episode of the reality show, Ferguson takes a car ride through London to revisit her past.

Stopping at Buckingham Palace, she says, "There's my old house," reports

She wasn't invited to the recent royal wedding of Prince Williams and Kate Middleton, but her daughters Princess Beatrice of York and Princess Eugenie of York were. Her daughters are fifth and sixth in the line of succession to the British throne.

Ferguson became a familiar face when she became a spokesperson for Weight Watchers for many years.

"Finding Sarah" premieres on Sunday, June 12, at 9 p.m. ET.
