Andy Cohen Shot Down The Rumor That Meghan Markle Didn’t Conduct Her Own “Archetypes” Interviews, And Some Of Prince Harry’s Unsuccessful Podcast Pitches Were Revealed
Though it seems like public favor has been waning lately for “fucking grifters” Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Andy Cohen recently threw Meghan a bone by confirming that he did, in fact, get interviewed by Meghan herself when he was on her now-defunct podcast Archetypes last year, after rumors recently began swirling that she didn’t conduct her own interviews during the show’s short run. A former staffer from the company that produced Archetypes claimed that producers did the interviews, except for the main ones, and Meghan was edited in later. And it’s probably a good thing that The Sussexes and Spotify parted ways while their deal was still active. Because Prince Harry allegedly pitched a podcast where he’d interview Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin about their childhood trauma. What could go wrong?
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle stunned ears everywhere when it was announced that their landmark $20 million deal with Spotify was over. Where will we turn to now to learn about Paris Hilton or other famous people’s fake voices? Lord knows we just don’t have enough podcasts in the world today, so the end of Archetypes has disappointed some people. One of those people is Spotify executive Bill Simmons who has quietly expressed his displeasure with the royal couple. Just kidding! He took to his podcast to call them “fucking grifters.”
Meghan Markle’s Spotify podcast, Archetypes, consistently charted high and won several awards, even though I don’t know anyone in real life who tuned in, even ironically. But it seemed like a perfect fit for her since she could collect her flowers and do her women’s activism thing by taking on honorable causes like giving Paris Hilton a platform to clarify that her whole dumb baby-voiced bimbo schtick was just a decades-long ruse on us dumb-dumbs. However, Archewell Audio (consisting of Prince Harry and Meghan) and Spotify just announced that their $20 million partnership has ended. But reportedly, the Duke and Duchess haven’t produced enough content to receive the full payout.
As if an entanglement with Shia LaBeouf wasn’t a questionable enough choice for this decade, Sia made a contentious movie in 2021 called Music, for which she received super heavy backlash for casting Maddie Ziegler— who’s neurotypical–in the role of a non-verbal autistic girl, for the way the film portrayed autism in general, and for lacking research and input from members of the neurodivergent community. After Sia piss-poorly responded to the backlash in several tweets, the pushback was apparently so taxing on her that she ended up breaking her sobriety and headed to rehab. And now, two years after the whole Music ordeal, Sia just shared that she herself is on the autism spectrum.
About five years ago, Meghan Trainor and her Spy Kids husband, Daryl Sabara, were papped leaving a sex shop with all kinds of goods. She later explained she was just grabbing some toys for a “friend,” and apparently, that “friend” is a teacher because she recently said on her podcast that they should get fucked! Or, more specifically, “fuck teachers, dude.” But after some backlash, Meghan issued an apology for her “careless” comments and said she was just angry and was only referring to mean teachers.
Gizelle Bryant Of “The Real Housewives Of Potomac” Said A Gay Slur On Her Podcast And People Had Thoughts
Gizelle Bryant is an OG of The Real Housewives of Potomac who’s probably been able to hold on for so long based on her occasional shady one-liners, her peen-passing pastor ex-husband, her deliciously tragic fashion and home design choices, and her drama-provoking friendship with cast mate, Robyn Dixon. The two ladies also have a podcast together called Reasonably Shady. Robyn pissed off Bravo fans and Andy Cohen by talking about her cheating husband debacle on it and directing listeners to pay for more details, and she and Gizelle both pissed off “Slim Shady” Eminem himself by trying to capitalize on the word “shady.” But now, Gizelle’s recent full use of the gay f-slur when discussing the Jussie Smollet fake hate crime mess has kicked up some controversy.
