Fergie Does Deli

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The Earl of Sandwich should be proud of fellow royal Sarah Ferguson – she’s the first Brit to be honored with a sandwich at New York’s Stage Deli.

Starting today (Jun. 21), the ex-wife of England’s Prince Andrew will be immortalized as a grilled chicken breast, sliced tomato and melted muenster cheese on rye and share a spot on the menu next to Donald Trump and Liza Minnelli.

A mile-high deli sandwich may be an odd choice for a woman who now promotes Weight Watchers, but Fergie tells waistline watchers, “If you want to eat it, eat just a corner of it.”

However, she estimates that slamming down a whole Sarah Ferguson sandwich would cost Weight Watchers clients a whopping 20 of their allowed diet “points” – about the same as a McDonald’s Double Quarter Pounder with cheese.

Sandwiches are on Fergie’s mind a lot these days. She’s also the spokeswoman for the low-calorie sandwich spread GourMayo, which is used in her namesake sandwich.
