In case you were hoping that Duchess Meghan‘s half-sister, Samantha Markle, was sequestered in the Celebrity Big Brother house with no access to technology, social media and the outside world, our apologies. She was either voted out early (completely understandable) or never really took part in the show, because Samantha was back on Twitter again and, shockingly, had some less-than-complimentary things to say about Megs. In fact, Sam shared with her followers her new nickname for her royal half-sib. And it’s basically the worst.
According to The Sun, Markle is done “candy coating” when it comes to the Duchess of Sussex and her treatment of their father, Thomas Markle.
“The DUCHASS should be humane to our father who has given her everything,.. and this media crap can stop!” she tweeted. “He was the one who was always there for her. Fake waves and smiles can stop. The duchASS can bow to the daddy.”
Not sure what’s worse — her attempt at a clever nickname or “bow to the daddy.” Shudder. Naturally, though, Markle’s Twitter tirade wasn’t done.
“Being royal does not suddenly alleviate her the obligation to be a kind decent woman,” said Markle, a.k.a. the pot in this family drama. “And she can’t manipulate PR staff into making everyone else bad and her good.” That’s right. She doesn’t need to manipulate anyone, since Meghan’s family is doing that just fine on their own.
“Correction I don’t want to spoil her marriage but she owes my father a lot of love and respect,” she added. “No one wants to spoil her marriage and marriage is not an issue. What is at issue is the kind treatment of our dad.”
But love and respect is a two-way street, right? Meghan and Thomas clearly have a complicated relationship that has only become increasingly difficult. While we can only assume Megs wants to reach out to her father, the threat of him running to reporters armed with what they discussed is very, very real. And she simply can’t have that. Royal or not, no one wants the details of a private conversation made public and Thomas hasn’t proven he’s trustworthy just yet.
All one has to do is look and see how Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland, is laying low and not saying anything to the media. You know, respecting and supporting her daughter. Unlike her ex-husband, she is likely in constant contact with her daughter; now if only Thomas could follow Doria’s lead.
As for Samantha, well, what can we say about her that hasn’t already been said? She’s still up to her no-good tricks since the only way she stays relevant is by slagging her half-sib. So whether she’s calling Megs a Princess Pushy or a DuchASS, or warning Harry that he’ll soon be dumped, it really doesn’t matter. Because the names don’t affect others’ views of Meghan. Instead, all it does is make Samantha out to be even more bitter and jealous and awful than ever. And honestly, does she really want them to patch up their relationship? Because if Meghan and Thomas do find a way to communicate with each other, what will Samantha have to talk about then?
