'You're joking': Andy Cohen doesn't remember meeting Meghan Markle before they talked on 'Archetypes'
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: For the final episode of the 'Archetypes', Meghan Markle welcomed male guests for the first time on her Spotify podcast for their take on '"the labels and tropes that try to hold women back." The Duchess of Sussex, 41, spoke to the host of 'The Daily Show' Trevor Noah, movie director Judd Apatow, and TV producer Andy Cohen. However, in the twelfth and the last episode called 'Man-ifesting a Cultural Shift', of the $18 million worth series which was finally completed two years after the contract was signed with the streaming giant, there were some awkward moments.
The tycoon, Andy Cohen, behind the 'Real Housewives' franchise felt embarrassed after the Duchess of Sussex disclosed they had met twice previously in 'Suits' when she was a budding star, but Cohen couldn't recall any of those meetings as the show began, he said: "nice to meet you." Markel also expressed how she liked to watch the series and was its "huge fan" but stopped watching because she had to tackle life's own dramas.

As Cohen remarked "nice to meet you," Markle corrected him by saying, "I met you before. You'll never remember it," to which Andy replied, "You're joking." Meghan laughed and said, "Would I joke about that? This is great." She went on saying, "I met you twice. The first one is when Suits wasn't even on, yet. And then when we had maybe season two or three, we were in New York," the Daily Mail reported. She revealed her desire to be on his late-night TV show, 'Watch What Happens Live', "I was so eager to appear on your show because I was such a Housewives fan at the time and I just couldn't get booked, Andy." Cohen screamed nervously as he told the story, and she said, "It's not bad, it's not bad. Don't sweat."
Andy then asked Meghan, if she still watches 'Real Housewives', the answer he would "die" to know about. Markle was affirmative saying, "Well, I will tell you the truth. I stopped watching the Housewives when my life had its own level of drama. That I stopped..." Andy finished her sentence for her, saying, "craving other people's." However, Meghan has also brushed off the rumors that she would appear in any of the 'Real Housewives'.
The Duchess portrayed Rachel Zane in the TV series 'Suits' from 2011 until 2018 when she retired as an actor and wed the Duke of Sussex, Prince Harry. Prior to that, she had a string of little parts including a run as a "briefcase lady" on the US version of 'Deal Or No Deal'. At the beginning of the program, Meghan acknowledged that Prince Harry had suggested she talk to the males on the show, which is now ranked 29 on Spotify, in order to "change the gender conversation."
