Last week, everyone outside of “Toronto high society” (HA!) collectively asked “Who?” in response to the news that Jessica Mulroney, stylist/shoe heiress/wife to Ben Mulroney (entertainment news host and son of a former conservative Canadian Prime Minister), abused her white privilege and threatened Black social media influencer Sasha Exeter. All because Sasha posted a Black Lives Matter post that Jessica misinterpreted as a personal attack on her. The narcissistic white fragility… far too much.
The main reason this news blew up is because Jessica’s best friends with the reportedly “mortified” Meghan Markle… OR IS SHE?! Well, yes, at one time they were close. Jessica was Meghan’s bridesmaid, and she’s even one of Master Archie’s godparents. But now a source tells Page Six that Meghan’s been looking to cut Jessica out of her life for a while now. And look, here’s the perfect excuse! Oh, L.A. butler! Retrieve the Duchess’ royal scissors out of the junk drawer, and let’s get ta’ snippin’!
The source says that Meghan believes that Jessica has personally benefited from their close friendship. Um, of course she has. And who wouldn’t abuse that connection? I’d be busting to the front of every McDonald’s line, declaring, “I know a fucking princess or whatever, Big Mac me or I’ll have you all executed with swords!”
Another source (the same guy but wearing a fake mustache) says:
“I don’t know what the tipping point was, but Jess has been on the outs for some time,” said another source. “Their friendship is definitely not what it was. And really, how can you have such a close friendship when one person is basically making a career out of the friendship?”
I dunno, mystery source, haven’t you ever seen Entourage? I mean, I haven’t, but I’m pretty sure that the premise of the show was a bunch of no-talents milking one guy’s career. And I’m positive that “it’s all about who you know” is how 90% of people succeed.
But it’s tragic, really. All of Jessica’s hard work building her stylist career over the last few years (she’d just threateningly whisper, “do you KNOW who my bestie is?”) has been for nothing. Since this scandal, she’s been fired from two TV jobs: her reality show I Do, Redo, and her gig on Good Morning America.
Oh Jessica. In one week you’ve managed to lose your career, reputation, and best friend. But the person we should be feeling sorry for (I mean, apart from Sasha Exeter) is Meghan. Because now she’s on Jessica’s evergrowing shit list! Oh no, will the Duchess ever be allowed back into the elite social circles of Toronto, Ontario (LOL)?!
