Meghan Markle has been taking time from suing the tabloids and trying to convince Prince Harry to start an OnlyFans to pay back their Frogmore renovations to try to control the flames from the dumpster fire that started when her “BFF” Jessica Mulroney, Canadian television personality (and I’m being generous with that description), decided to show her privileged ass while trying to take down Sasha Exeter, a social media influencer who is a Black woman. According to The Daily Mail (via Page Six), the former duchess is beyond embarrassed and is making efforts to dissociate herself from Jessica (which should really be Meghan’s new full-time gig: staying away from shitty people. Maybe Disney can option a movie out of it?)
A source said that Meghan doesn’t think Jessica is racist but don’t expect to see her next to Jessica when Jessica inevitably pulls a damage-control stunt by showing up at a Black Lives Matter protest. Meghan wants to keep their friendship on the down-low for now because being publicly associated with Jessica isn’t a good look for her.
“Meghan is absolutely mortified that she’s been dragged into this complete mess,” a close friend of Markle’s, 38, told The Daily Mail. “She said Jessica is in no way a racist, but the way she handled the situation (with the fashion influencer) was tone-deaf and heartbreaking.”
“Meghan said friends reflect friends and because of what’s at stake, she can no longer be associated with Jessica, at least not in public,” The source continued. “She has to do what she has to do in order to preserve her dignity and her own reputation.”
You’ll remember that as a result of her shittiness, Jessica rightfully lost countless gigs, including big ones like “fashion contributor” for Good Morning America (oh please, hire a recent F.I.T. grad and they’ll give you 100x the insight).
“It’s not like Meghan can just call up ABC and defend Jessica,” the source explained. “There was a reason Meghan waited to so long to make a statement. She wanted to get it right. She said she urged Jessica to do the same thing from the get-go.”
Meanwhile, Jessica, and her husband Ben Mulroney (who is the son of former conservative Canadian Prime Minister, Brian Mulroney), both the epitome of basic Canadian nepotism, are no doubt holed up in some gilded cage waiting for things to cool down so that they can get back to their utterly useless TV jobs. The concept of their livelihood drying up and sponsors pulling support from their various business ventures (like a wedding-themed reality show….because we need another one of those) is probably so foreign to them, having spent years on the receiving end of undeserved praise for showing up and doing the bare minimum.
The only surprise in this is that Jessica hasn’t aired out her dumb ass sooner. Ben, on the other hand, who looks like a castrated, spray-tanned eunuch (literally the Canadian Ryan Seacrest) is too used to reading everything off of a teleprompter, so the idea that he has anything to say, privileged or otherwise, is laughable.
Meanwhile, I’m sure Jessica is working on her next apology, probably written on tear-stained stationery, followed by an inspirational quote from Maya Angelou.
