Interesting turn of events. I like, that the rest of these people are fighting amongst themselves, and are leaving Meghan alone. Samantha's comments about her ex sound like she's talking about herself.

From what I understand it is the British channel ITV that is paying for to be a wedding commentator. They lost credibility for sure.

They don't care about credibility. They care about ratings. They know that most people know Samantha hates Meghan and would take any chance to trash her so they banking on many tuning in just for her reactions. They hoping for Samantha to have some kind of meltdown that they can milk for weeks. That is the game. Everyone will be covering this wedding and networks are trying to find ways to make you turn into their coverage. This is their attempt.

This has never been confirmed. Why are people posting unsubstantiated rumors as facts?

It was in one of the papers. It was not a big article but a royal reporter certainly heard about it and shaded Samantha for her duplicity.

Which paper? If it was just a tabloid insinuation, that doesnt make it true. Actually, it probably means its not true.

You're right there has been no confirmation. I think whatever TV network is hiring her is waiting it out, testing the waters for public backlash. I'm waiting for Andrew Morton's book about Meghan coming out in April. If the Markles are covered the details will be fascinating.

This might have been seen but I just came across it. The Mirror got a hold of her yearbook and basically posted anything and everything Meghan related. She was quite active and seemed very popular. Also noticed her dad was very involved in her theater stuff. He did the light design for a few of her shows and was in pictures in the year book about the productions. He was clearly extremely supportive.

Unfortunately, not only has the blog been taken down, it's been excluded from the Wayback Machine.

Additionally, at least four people interviewed the woman behind the blog between 2010 and 2012 via email. Those interviews have tidbits that could point to Meghan (and some that don't), but whoever she was, theworkingactress was really good at answering questions without giving away too much information.

Without being able to read the actual blog posts, I wouldn't be willing to make a judgement call either way about whether or not it was Meghan.
Meghan Maven has done a good job of compiling old posts and some anonymous interviews with the blogger. Looks like DM took liberties with the quoted text they cited, the blogger didn't say biscuits. Initially, I wrote this story off as more tabloid trash but after reading a few original interviews, I think it's Meghan. There are quite a few of her signature lines and phrasing that she later used in articles and on camera interviews...i.e. best advice she would give is "remember you are enough". There's also the "Don't give it 5 minutes, if you're not willing to give it 5 years" line.

All about Meghan's Funny and Inspiring ALLEGED pre-fame blog "The Working Actress" | Meghan Maven

Also interesting to consider rise and fall of The Tig with this additional context. It's telling that both blogs were literally wiped clean with content removed when they ended.

I also think it was Meghan. The "Don't give it 5 minutes it you won't give it 5 years." is another one of her signature quotes. The blog itself is hardly scandalous. Nothing she said is anything surprising to anyone who has worked in that business. It is cheeky in tone.

I do wonder who leaked it to the press though. Not surprised it was removed from the net as with shown with The Tig... they love to dissect everything and turn it into something it never was.

Yep I caught the 5 years line in another interview and added the edit. Agree the blog wasn't scandalous but I can see why she'd want it to stay anonymous even after she got the role on Suits.

Between this blog, the Tig, and a bunch of magazine articles, Meghan's done quite a bit of writing in public forums. Will be interesting to see how or if that translates in her new role.

There are some clues the blog might NOT be Meghan's work. The writer suggests she runs 6 miles; I wonder if Ms Markle is a runner. A further entry notes that the writer needs a spray tan: this seems inconsistent with the "Nutmeg" colour of Ms Markle's skin

Meghan has said she used to be more of a runner (don't know about 6 miles) but as she got older it was too hard on her body and had to cut back. In one interview, the "blogger" said the spray tan was required by the production company. Can't say for sure but I've seen pics of her with what looks like a spray tan. Who knows if it's because she was young and dumb or trying to look more "ethnic" for a role.

More likely they wanted her skin tone to be constant while filming. Spray tan's help you adjust for the seasons if your production company worries about "continuity." Same thing with her hair - she could not change it without production timing and control.

My mind goes straight to her time on Deal or No Deal. I wouldn't be surprised if they had a blanket rule that all the "briefcase girls" had to be spray tanned, no exceptions. Putting she same color spray tan on all the various skin tones of that cast would be sort of like applying one of those Instagram filters that makes every color in a picture a little more...alike. They seemed to want all of the women's bodies to look as close to uniform as possible on that show.

The discussion regarding things Samantha said on her locked twitter account have been deleted. Once again, let's stay away from discussing private tweets.

I wish Mr. Markle would get himself in shape for the upcoming nuptials. He looks terribly unhealthy and on top of it he is smoking too...
If he wishes to walk his daughter down the aisle for her special day he should at least try.

Well....let's just say that I'm glad that Meghan developed better lifestyle choices from her mother who is clearly in fantastic shape for a woman in her 60s. She hikes, does yoga and clearly takes care of herself.
