Meghan Markle Shares Feeling Envious of Paris Hilton
In the 6th episode of Archetypes Podcast titled Breaking Down the Bimbo, the Duchess of Sussex sat with Paris Hilton. Markle recalled having judgments towards Paris Hilton as she was never the ‘Pretty One’ like Hilton. Before admitting that she used to judge Hilton, the Duchess of Sussex said that she did not enjoy keeping judgments towards a person. Meghan Markle said,
“You heard me at the beginning of this episode talk about how I was nervous for this one. Nervous because, while I’m embarrassed to admit it, I had a judgment about Paris and I don’t like having judgment. Doesn’t feel good.”
She also recalled thinking Paris Hilton’s life to be perfect she said,
“But I had to be real about that because when I grew up she was beautiful, rich and famous. What could possibly be wrong with her life? I would think.”
She further added that when she was young, her complete sense of self was defined by being the ‘smart one’. And according to her, that resulted in her projecting her envy on Paris Hilton who was rich, famous, and pretty.
“And because my entire sense of self-confidence was wrapped up in being the smart one and not the pretty one, I found the way to project all of my judgment and envy onto her. Envy can be a very dangerous thing, as can judgment”
The former American actress apologized for judging and projecting envy on Paris Hilton. The Duchess of Sussex has obviously matured a lot since that time. She said,
“I was ashamed to admit that I harbored either of those feelings.” She later told her listeners, “I’m sorry for having judged her. I didn’t know her.“
The Duchess of Sussex also shared many other memories before her marriage to Prince Harry in the podcast. The podcast is available on Spotify for listening.
Meghan Markle shares Her time while Shooting “Deal or No Deal”
The mother of Lilibet and Archie recalled her time on Deal or no Deal in the Spotify podcast. She shared that she used to be a “Briefcase Girl” back in 2006 when she was in the game show. And although it did not require her to use her brain much the work paid her bills. She tells,
“I had also studied international relations in college, and there were times I was on set at Deal or No Deal and thinking back to my time working as an intern at the U.S. Embassy in Argentina in Buenos Aires and being in the motorcade with the security of treasury at the time and being valued specifically for my brain. Here, I was being valued for something quite the opposite.”
Although the movie did not demand much serious acting work it seems the Suits actress was glad to do it since it paid her bills.
Meghan Markle was last seen in public with her husband Prince Harry during the late queen’s funeral.
