Wendy Williams says she doesn’t have any sympathy for Meghan Markle, after the Duchess of Sussex emotionally confessed to having trouble acclimating to royal life.
“Meghan, nobody feels sorry for you,” Williams said Tuesday on her hit talk show. “You knew what you were signing up for girl!”
Williams, 55, shared footage of Markle’s, 38, emotional interview from the ITV documentary “Harry & Meghan: An African Journey,” with Markle saying she had no clue what getting serious with Prince Harry would mean for her future.
“When I first met Harry, my friends were so excited. My U.S. friends were happy because I was happy,” Markle said. “But my British friends, they were sure he was lovely, but they said I shouldn’t do it because, ‘The British tabloids will destroy your life.’ I just didn’t get it.”
“Yes you did. You knew exactly what you were doing,” said the Hollywood Walk of Fame inductee after showing the clip. “And I applaud her plot-ation on the royal situation. But please, don’t try to garner sympathy from us. You knew what you were doing.”
Wendy went on to refer to Markle’s unnamed British friend as “some hating-ass girlfriend,” before suggesting the former actress could’ve made up the story completely.
“Or Meghan’s lying to try and get sympathy, for us to give her sympathy, if someone in fact told [her] that.”
Williams went on to say Markle shouldn’t be surprised that the paparazzi is obsessed with her relationship, adding, “Of course, because you’re now a royal. They weren’t following you when you were on ‘Suits,’ we didn’t even know who you were except when you came for employment here at Wendy and wanted to be one of our runway models.”
