Meghan Markle's sister Samantha demands $1,500 for tell-all interview on her royal sister
Meghan Markle's sister Samantha Markle seems committed to cashing in on her sister's fame and is demanding a minimum of $1,500 for an interview on her royal sister
Meghan Markle's half-sister Samantha Markle is reportedly demanding a payment from media outlets in order to do a tell-all interview on her royal sister Meghan Markle. Samantha is very candid about what kind of payment she expects for the interview.
According to The Blast, who obtained an email exchange between Samantha and 'The Domenick Nati Show', Samantha is asking for over a thousand dollars for an interview with the show. In the email, she explains that her "minimum is much higher" but she is willing to compromise and settle for around $1,500.
Before agreeing to the interview, Samantha had some conditions and wanted to ensure that she was not being "set up by a shock jock who wants to be rude". She also added that she used to work in radio and so her snappy and sarcastic comebacks could "embarrass the host".
Sources at 'The Domenick Nati Show' revealed that they had reached out to Samantha via social media to talk about the newly wedded Duchess of Sussex but had only recently heard back from her. The show, however, refused to pay Samantha her fee.
Ever since Meghan Markle's wedding to Prince Harry, Samantha has spoken to shows such as 'Good Morning Britain' and is currently writing a tell-all autobiography which had formerly been titled 'The Diary Of Princess Pushy'. It has been reported that Meghan's sister and her father Thomas Markle are having major financial troubles and have been trying to sell stories to the media.
Samantha Markle has often taken digs at Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have, however, chosen to remain silent on the matter. The couple recently attended a tribute to Nelson Mandela at the Nelson Mandela Centenary Exhibition and Samantha was quick to slam the royal couple in a series of tweets attacking her half-sister for being "cold" towards their father.
"How about you pay tribute to your own father? Enough is enough. Act like a humanitarian, act like a woman! If our father dies, I’m holding you responsible, Meg! #KensingtonRoyal," she wrote. "Glad you have so much time to gallivant around paying tribute to others while ignoring your own father! How cold can you be and look in the mirror? Harry? I guess I was right," she went on to add.
Samantha also called out Prince Harry on Twitter and described him as a "wuss". "Harry is a wuss to allow the Duchess of Nonsense to mistreat everyone who has been close to her, especially her family," she wrote.
She also went on to add that the late Princess Diana, Prince Harry's mother, would be "ashamed". Samantha also spoke about what the palace needs to do to "sort out" her father.
Samantha spoke to Dan Wootton who told Lorraine Kelly, "Meghan’s half-sister said to me: Look, this is just a guy who needs a trip to Buckingham Palace. He’s always wanted to go to Buckingham Palace. Just sort him out, guys, because he’s not going away".
Dan also revealed to Lorraine that the situation needed to be "resolved". "At the end of the day, you’ve got Thomas Markle. This guy who’s over in America, who wants to talk to the press all the time. He told TMZ, "If the Queen is going to meet Donald Trump, why doesn’t she meet me? I’m not as bad".
In another tweet, she slammed the royals for being an embarrassment and cold to Thomas Markle. "You should be ashamed of yourselves," she said.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were quick to cut ties with Thomas Markle after he refused to stop going to the press to give interviews on his daughter. In response to his daughter's cold shoulder, Thomas explained why he went to the press and also hinted at the fact that he would continue to give interviews until the couple speaks to him.
"I was silent for a full year and the press beat me up every day saying I was a hermit hiding in Mexico, so I gave my story. Apparently that interview [with Good Morning Britain] put the Royal family in their silence mode... So, I gave another interview to break the silence. All they have to do is speak to me. Tomorrow is my birthday, 74 years old, and I'm enjoying the fact that I can make the entire Royal family not speak. And maybe I can get a laugh out of the duchess," Thomas shared.
Recently, Thomas Markle spoke to the Sun and claimed that Meghan Markle was "terrified" about a royal and all the fame that comes along with it.
"I see it in her eyes, I see it in her face and I see it in her smile. I've seen her smile for years. I know her smile. I don't like the one I'm seeing now. This one isn't even a stage smile—this is a pained smile," he shared. "It really worries me. I think she's under too much pressure," he continued. "There's a high price to pay to be married to that family."
Thomas Markle was unable to make Meghan's wedding to Prince Harry due to health issues but Meghan's mother Doria Ragland attended the event. Samantha Markle called out Doria for attending the wedding as she was the only member from Meghan's family to be invited. In yet another Twitter rant, Samantha said, "Even Doria cashed in talking to Oprah and some of the first photos out there only she could have had".
On Friday, it was reported that Samantha Markle has agreed to appear on Great Britain's version of 'Celebrity Big Brother' and is reportedly collecting six figures for her appearance.
The show begins filming on August 17.
