You are correct...the timing is questionable but why wait.

There are always going to people who question her motives.

She could have done it when they started dating and people would have said she was capitalizing on her daughter''s relationship with Harry.

She could have done it before the engagement and people would have said she was capitalizing on her daughter''s relationship with Harry.

She is doing it before the the wedding and people will say she was capitalizing on her daughter''s relationship with Harry.

She could have done it after the wedding people would have said she was capitalizing on her daughter''s relationship with Harry.

See the pattern? So why wait?

Maybe this has nothing to do with her daughter? Maybe the timing for her PERSONALLY worked out?

My goodness, people really really want to see the worse in Doria. Its so transparent.

It's reported that Meghan still wants him there. I think that no matter he needs to be somewhere totally secluded from the media. They are truly viscous. They are paying them to embarrass Meghan and the media is gas lighting her. This is causing pain for Harry also, he grew up seeing his mother treated in the same manner and was not able to protect her. He knows how awful the media is and the fact that he can't protect Meghan must trying upset him.

I don't think neither of them thought the press would go on this shark like feeding frenzy.

For all the money they have spent to dig up dirt, all the money spent on pictures they have barely NO SCANDAL to show for it.

Tom Sr was a lighting director. I doubt he had any media attention paid to him and if he had no ambitions to be something like a director he may have paid little attention to publicity. He may have just gone to work and done his job.
And as Jacqui pointed out several times, the media has changed a lot even in the time he's been retired, & social media didn't really exist when he worked in "show business."

He has made some really poor choices in handling this, and has hurt his youngest child in the process. Maybe he needed more help through all this than he was willing to ask for or Meghan realized. It is sad all the way around.

Zaria, I don’t want to see or look for the worst in Doria but it shouts $$$. She’s entitled to open her own business but the optics couldn’t come at a worse time in this mess

One would think that Tom Sr. still has connections in the business and could also get work.

I would say it's very plausible that the timing is because this would allow her to better control her own schedule. Once Meghan and Harry have children, I'd imagine she'd want to spend more time in London given how close they are.

Well, I don't think there will ever be peace in this family, but a payout upon signing an NDA or something similar with penalties such as having to give the money back if they spill the beans might have worked. Major corporations use them all the time, they can be fairly watertight.

Maybe that was the all-night lawyer sessions Harry spoke about in the letter to the media. Maybe they wanted too much money and couldn't come to an agreement. Sorry for the speculation, just thinking out loud.
It works for major corporations because the people they deal with aren't typically broke. They have something loose. Good luck recovering anything if they've spent everything and have nothing to loose.

He is 73 years old. Most people retire at 65 here. IF he is in poor health, I can't see him working.

I have been thinking this as well. I can well imagine someone unused to being in the public eye being overwhelmed about dealing with all of this alone. In a perfect world, he would have told Meghan "I just can't do this." But that probably would have hurt her too.

She can contract out to nursing homes and maybe some government agencies, after going thru a bidding process I would assume. Does anyone know how that works?
With some of the small practices, benefits aren't typically great. Vacations are short, and a lot of them don't offer great insurance benefits, which is a big issue for US employees right now. If that's the case, having her own practice wouldn't be loosing out that much while giving her more freedom with her time.

That's the thing, I don't think he has to deal with it alone if he just asked for help. Harry and Meghan has taken precaution with Doria. I'm sure they'd be willing to do the same for her father if he communicated well. This BS is only being played out in the media like this because he choose to communicate this to TMZ before his own daughter. Another stupid decision.

Hopefully they can get him to the ceremony and if they can I would invite his brother to accompany him. Perhaps and could move closer to the brother.

All I know is that until his location was sold, Tom Sr. was quiet. I hope that he gets money from those awful pictures and uses it to move, perhaps a retirement community. Wherever he goes I hope the press is unable to find him.

Sr is going to the hospital now, according to TMZ:

He says Samantha has caused him pain. If anything happens to Sr Sam is being set up to take the blame.

As Zonk pointed out upthread--there is no better or worse time for Doria-no time would be good. She has to do what is right for her, when it is right for her.

I actually believe that Sam was behind this as she stated on Loose Women this morning. So much emotion right now. I can't imagine how Meghan is feeling right now.

Why does Thomas continue to talk to TMZ? This is not making the situation any better. I notice that he says Meghan hasn't contacted him, so is this his way of trying to get her to call him?

He did get money for them. That was part of the arrangement he made with the paps.

This just gets worse and worse. What a nightmare.

Poor guy.

This is not good. My prayers are with everyone involved in hopes that nothing terrible happens.

I agree, if he had communicated that he needed help, Meghan and Harry would have found a way to provide it. But he may have either been unable to admit it or was in denial. He is of the tough it out generation of men.

And yes, communicating with TMZ was really, really dumb.

All the Markle's are officially......

Pathetic... I'm embarrassed to be American. I need the names and images of Doria's family because they are the only ones who have sense.
