"Meghan: A Hollywood Princess" by Andrew Morton (2018)

This is from the new Morton book.

Quote:
Describing Meghan as 'controlling' and 'fastidious' the biography says she grew tired of her husband's 'scattered approach to life' while she starred in the legal drama.

'He was not the only one experiencing the Meghan chill,' Morton writes. 'She no longer had the time for friends she had known for years.'

A friend says the actress left the film producer feeling like something stuck on the bottom of her shoe.

I expected more from Morton but it looks like he didn't do any research. he just took bits from already reported and stitched together for quick sell.

Funny how that is, right? She "dropped" friends yet still close to the same ones for over a decade. These excerpts sound like a copy and past job from the Daily Fail. Pretty clear he talked to the bitter ex friend and the ex husband but hardly anyone currently in her life. He said he avoided Samantha but did talk to Jnr.

In their attempt to show MM dropped them for more famous friends in Toronto??!! they neglect to mention Meghan's old friends Lindsay, and two other LA friends and if they actually did any research such as a simple Instagram snooping they would know this is not true. It should be noted that all the Suits actors became friends with the Mulroneys not just Meghan. It seems that the only people willing to talk are the ones who sold her out and not her true friends and true family.

Andrew did talk to Yvonne aka Samantha.

That statement that is highlighted makes it very clear that this Morton book will not be an unbiased work. If those that are talking to the press feel they've been dropped, stepped on and/or ignored, its because Meghan had reasons to eliminate them from her life.

One doesn't remain friends with people that sell them out or are professing deep and abiding and caring feelings for Meghan just to get a free ride on her bridal train. I'll bet my last cream puff that the percentage of the people that are quoted in this book that are not invited to the wedding is 100%.

These people talking to reporters or authors are showing why their friendships and relationships ended. They're not of course talking about the full picture, it's simply, that Meghan dropped them all out of the blue, no idea why, it came as a shock to them. They are still so confused and shocked, that they had to talk to this author/DailyFail reporter to try to get some clarity about it all.

I don't think Meghan's ex husband has spoken to Morton, unless there is some more intimate information about their marriage to come out in this book. The statements about mailing the keys and feeling 'like something 'stuck on the bottom of her shoe' sound like they're from that ex friend who sold her out to the Mail a few months ago.

Trevor has kept silent to journalists so far. I just can't see him sitting down to talk with a British journo and author he doesn't know, and telling him things like that. Instead it feels to me more like something the ex friend or perhaps one of his friends who doesn't like Meghan very much would say, second or even third hand information. The rest of the article sounds very much like cut and paste stuff.

Go to the Sun website about the book and you will see some good parts about Meghan. The volunteer work as a teen in a rough neighborhood, defending a classmate who was bullied because she had a disability, steering clear of

Usually when making this kind of a statement, it helps to provide a credible source from where you get your information. Where does this information about Morton talking with Yvonne/Samantha come from? Is it gossip or is it a credible fact?

Glad to see you're jumping into the mix and enjoying posting here. Might take a bit of a while to get the hang of everything but if you have any questions, just holler.

Go to the Sun website about the book and you will see positive stories.about Meghan. The Fail made Morton's book look like a hit piece.

Basically, I do expect it to be a "hit" piece and chock full of misinformation. Why? Because, for the most part, what is probably going to be presented is information that comes either from the many articles already published about Meghan packaged into one book and the other reason being that those that do talk to Morton aren't on best buddy terms with Meghan, herself.

Its like taking Hello and The National Enquirer and TMZ and quotes from people that knew Meghan once upon a time together and tying them all up in a neat little bundle. Only good part about this book is that Morton will beat Samantha Grant by publishing first and lessen the "demand" for Sam's book. Morton obviously has a wider reputation as a "royal author" after the tell all books done in conjunction with Diana. Princess of Wales.

NOTHING Morton writes is worth the paper it's written on.. ANYONE seeking any kind of 'truth' or 'balance' therein will be disappointed, but what would that matter to him ? His sole criteria is how it sells, and the £'s it rakes in...

I think Mortonís book will be almost all positive. Which is what Meghan fans want, balanced or not.

Probably best to wait for everything to come out of the serialisation or to read the book. Judging from Mortonís comments this anything but a hatchet job.

I'd rather a book be fair - balance for the sake of balance isn't always fair - if a person is mostly good but an author is striving for balance to present them as 50% good and 50% bad when they are really 90% good, then "balance" is wholly unfair and dishonest.

Especially when the "bad" is coming from people with obvious and transparent agendas.

I think it's perfectly reasonable for Meghan fans to want to see her depicted FAIRLY and for any negative news to be triple and double checked and considering the source before just printing it willy nilly.

Well said.

I don't think these biographies from people who have never really met Meghan, who write them based on second or third or even fourth hand info on about Meghan's life, interviewing people who aren't in her life, without interviewing Meghan, are never going to be accurate or fair. As a Meghan fan, I'd rather there be no books written about her, in which her ex-friends are interviewed, in which Samantha or Tom Jr have a say.

Not interested enough to read but the title alone has caused my eyes to roll so far back in my head they almost got stuck...Hollywood Princess? Seriously? Could Morton be any more snide?

Where are the books titled Working Class Princess for tire salesman's daughter Sophie Rhys Jones, or From Coal Mines to Cambridge Princess for Kate Middleton?

I hope Meghan knows what she is in for...REALLY in for.

Everytime this imbecile crawls out of his hole I get irritated with Diana for giving him a platform. But I get enraged at the people who continue to buy his crap!!!
