She is finally coming into her own. “The episode’s summary is as follows. Meghan also admits to having been “reduced to a bimbo.”
On “Deal or No Deal,” Meghan Markle got a job that would change her career.
Meghan said it was one of her most significant breaks when she was chosen to play a “briefcase girl.” However, she was appreciative of the employment. It helped with the bills. She claims it had a significant negative impact on her self-esteem.
She transitioned from working as a briefcase girl to an intern.
“There were times I was on set and remembering my time working as an intern. In the motorcade with the security of treasury at the time. Being valued specifically for my brain.” She had also studied international relations in college.
She Alleges Being Objectified
She continued by saying that while they were filming every week. She and the other models received tan spray coupons. “There was a very predetermined notion of how we ought to seem. It wasn’t necessarily about intelligence. It was only about attractiveness, “She went on.
She was also told to “Suck It In” by a woman.
“I’ll never forget one particular detail when I think back on that period: There was a woman who oversaw the act, and she would be present backstage. I can still hear her voice now. She had trouble pronouncing my last name at the time, but I could tell whom she was speaking to because she would say, “Markle, suck it in!”

Being compelled to fit into this archetype. I felt I had to be all show and little substance.”
