Meghan Markle’s Half-Sister Defends Cashing In On Fame & Talks Watching Royal Wedding On TV After Not Being Invited!
Samantha Markle is going to keep milking this fame cow as long as possible — and she doesn’t care what you think about it!
On Monday morning, days after
While the former Suits star had the best day of her life in England, Samantha watched the festivities “at home in Florida.” Despite not being there, the 53-year-old thought the ceremony “was so beautiful.”
When asked if she regrets anything she has said (like when she slammed Meghan for inviting the public to her wedding over her estranged family), she responded:
“You really can’t believe everything… I was always very forthcoming about the way I felt, the things that I loved and admired about her. There was some things that I didn’t understand or that I disagreed with and they were horribly skewed in the media… slamming…that was not accurate at all. She’s my baby sister and I love her and I was so proud to watch her have that happy moment and any disagreements that you’ve had melt away when there is that level of happiness.”
Although she wasn’t on the guest list, she doesn’t hold it against her baby sis.
“No one on my fathers or Dora’s side of the family were invited. We really felt like you can’t hold that against her. The traffic there would have been chaotic I was more comfortable watching it at home.”
When asked about cashing in on Meghan’s fame, she defended herself, saying:
“It’s not cashing in, to share fond feelings and memories…. Here’s what’s fundamentally wrong if family and friends don’t make money, the journalist and tabloids are going to make money and they have less right.”
In regards to father Thomas Markle‘s paparazzi photo scandal, she answered:
“He did not accept any reasonable some of money for photos, and he turned down interviews… It’s been how the media has interpreted my conduct… I do regret the title of my book [The Diary Of Princess Pushy’s Sister].”
It’s how the media interpreted her own admission that she set up the fake photo shoot? Right…
Speaking of her father, who recently underwent heart surgery, Samantha says he is still recovering in the hospital:
“He is recovering, still in the hospital. He certainly did have a heart attack it was not fake – media rubbish. It was quite difficult for him as much as he wanted to be there to walk her down the aisle and on the other hand it was a huge honor that Prince Charles walked her down the aisle on his behalf. So it was bitter but definitely sweet at the same time.”
Although she has not contacted Meghan, she hopes their relationship can be repaired, and hopes to call her after her honeymoon.
“I’m hoping that after they have their honeymoon and settled in we will have time to communicate by phone (I will probably arrange her number from my father).”
But will Meghan answer?? Who knows!
