Blind Item #3

This media conglomerate being paid to pick sides in the royal contest is probably going to regret it. The thing is though, they keep adding outlets and all of them are not exactly trashing the more famous royal, but rather ignoring her and talking up the alliterate one as much as possible.

Sparkle Markle, and her quest to out -queen the future Queen Consort, Catherine.

Laura Ramona said...

Nah. There s a new book coming out of a lunatic british female author.. Cruella combined with cocaine typing witch. Forgot the name of this alcoholic. All the rumours are her book...

Gail Banks said...

Lady Colin Campbell as the author?

TwoDots said...

Traditional media outlets vastly overestimate their importance. They can publish the bs outlets as much as they want, doesn’t mean that anyone buys it. See also: all the Brangie ridiculousness. How they could printed that shit with straight faces ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿผ‍♀️

On a separate note: HAPPY CHRISTMAS!!! Hope everyone here - Enty included - has a beautiful day. ๐Ÿงก✨๐Ÿฅ‚๐Ÿ•Š

Mischi said...

I wonder who is paying them to pick sides? Charles or Meghan?

Laura Ramona said...

Cruella Collin Campbell and another one typing her book about "royal jealousy", Alison James.

Laura Ramona said...

Happy Christmas everybody. And nope, nobody is paying Cruella and Alison to sell stories or to publish pooks (books).

cupofteaandsliceofcake said...

.......like Alexis and Krystal (who's old enough to remember them??) Cant wait for the fight in the KP fish pond

J said...

Those who have seen old Laugh-In episodes think it's funny Markle married a Farkel.

gauloise said...

isnt this referring to a publication like OK, or DM or the Sun.

An individual author writing a book is not a media conglomerate.

Laura Ramona said...

If you read DM and the Sun both authors are named sources for the respective articles. Such as today Alison James in the Sun.

Nutty_Flavor said...

GQ (owned by Conde Nast) recently wrote an extremely complimentary article about Meghan ("Here's why she's one of the greatest influencers of our time.") And Vogue UK, also owned by Conde Nast, included her on their annual best-dressed list, which was a surprise.

Harpers Bazaar (owned by Hearst) has also published numerous puff pieces on Meghan's hit-or-miss fashion. Sample: "MEGHAN MARKLE WORE A FITTED FLORAL DRESS THAT IS PERFECT FOR SPRING". She wore it on December 16, but whatever.

Enty recently suggested that People, aka Kneepads, was being paid to write 10 complimentary stories (or parts of stories) about Meghan.

So the answer is....lots of traditional media conglomerates are being paid to write great stuff about Meg.

But I agree with TwoDots that traditional media outlets are much less influential than they once were, particularly among younger readers.

HeatherBee said...

They are in the DM today walking and talking together. I would love to see the video with Monty Python’s “The Argument” dubbed over the video.

Nutty_Flavor said...

Yeah, it was pretty tragic. At least the ladies are trying, which is more than can be said for their husbands. I see Meg was finally wearing a British designer - Victoria Beckham, right down to the handbag. Apparently Vicky doesn't have anything in Christmas colors.

I wonder if the conglomerate Enty was talking about is American Media, which owns US Weekly, the National Enquirer, Star, Life & Style, Men's Journal, Closer, and Radar Online.

Radar is totally pro-Meghan, while the Enquirer is anti-Meghan. And Enty has spoken about American Media regularly in his podcast.

Do Tell said...

Radar and the Enquirer are rooted in the same source, (Radar is always publishing Enquirer and Star stories and advertising for them) so for them to have opposite POVs makes no sense other than the clickbaitiness.

Nathalia said...

It was insufferable to watch MM trying to socialize with Eugenie on their way to church today. Also, kudos to Kate for being a better actress than MM herself. However, it was clear the tension between the brothers. It seems that they did exchange words and W wanted to be as far away as possible from MM.
Either way, you know your reputation is ruined when you have to pay the likes of Kneepads to write something good about you.
In terms of her attire today, it looks like she was going to a funeral plus her coat was too small of her as the sleeves were very short. Also, what a miracle she did not need to hold her belly at all.

Do Tell said...

One of her handlers probably told her to stop doing the belly cradle.

Nathalia said...

Do Tell I wouldn`t hold my breath over it. I bet next event she is alone she will be doing it again.

Dane said...

The DM got a new Sparkels shill. He is totally batshit. I lurk that rag just to go straight to comments. The crazy that that rag attracts entertains me for hours. Me reading the DM... so they was some thing about somebody some where... Holy shit look at this nut.

Do Tell said...

The DM has a heinous comments censor. A lot of times mine don't show up ever.

Laura Ramona said...

Quel surprise...

Nutty_Flavor said...

@Do Tell, I'm not sure the DM has a human comments censor, but it does have a long list of words that will get your comments sent immediately to the circular file.

That's why you see commenters coming up with odd spellings of words likely to be on the list, ie "If you don't support Meghan, you are a ray-cist. She is a beautiful b.l.a.ck woman whom I deeply admire and I might k-i-l-l myself if they divรธrce."

It's also possible to get rid of just about any DM comment yourself by flagging it. I do that occasionally myself, when a commenter calls some poor human a monkey or something along those lines.

Just hit the little flag by the comment, put in an email address and go. Works a charm.

Do Tell said...

The thing is, the posts I have had never show up don't have any questionable words, not even vaguely.

Angela said...

The thing is that you interlocutor is trying to spin the situation as reverse racism, as the problem is with people who will continue allude to the fact she's black (she's actually of mixed ethnicity) to defend her at all costs. Because, you see, we live in a nearly perfect society where racism is a thing of the past, and not at all a big factor of obsession against this ni... oops, didn't happen... against this terrible shrew, who is an awful human being. The anti-racists are the true modern racists.

Also, even if the birther theories went on for years in the USA, and were a yuge factor into the election of your current president, it had nothing to do with racism. You would be the real racist for suggesting this.

Totto_ said...

I saw the pictures on the DM and even though girl didn't do her usual belly cradling she did used Dim Harry as her human walking stick, it was like she was holding onto him for dear life and she even burped Kate on the back! Girl never fails to embarrass herself, and that shitty curtsy that she did... So sad, it was awkward watching the videos of their arrival, it was like William and Harry were trying so hard not to notice each other and ironically, Kate's a waaay better actress than Markle, she looked like a scared Chihuahua while Kate looked like everything was fine and smooth, she really is made of steel, but hey! They got what they wanted! Now everyone will say those stories about Markle being a money-hungry monster are a lie even though that walk looked fake as fuck.

Totto_ said...

Angela: I always laugh when people say she's a black woman, on her walk to the church today she looked even paler than Kate! But sure, she's a black woman! I really don't know why people don't want to accept she's biracial, like that's bad? I've always said it, more than half of the people in this world are biracial, she's nothing special, and the issue people have with her has nothing to do with her racial background (at least not on my part) but it sure has a lot to do with her being fame and money hungry.

Mischi said...

Angela - I think the issue with Obama's birth certificate is the theory that his parents were CIA agents and he was selected a long time ago to run for president. The reason behind this is that even if he were born abroad, as a child of an American, he gets American citizenship at birth. It's the place that he was born that kind of proves that his life story isn't true and that his family were very involved in the CIA. At least that's how I understood it, because they can't attack his American citizenship in any way.

Aquagirl said...

+1 @Totto

LuLu said...

MMs hand on back of Kate trumped the epic belly cupping

Angela said...

@Mischi

It's no rocket science. The real issue with Obama's birth certificate is that a large number of Americans assumed (or still assume) that there was no way that a black man could be elected president on his own merits, and that it required a deep conspiracy to put him into this position. Every element of his life was then scrutinized and analyzed to find a possible weak point. As his father was a Muslim Kenyan, they developed this theory he wasn't born on American soil, which didn't make him automatically by birth an American citizen, thus ineligible.
The CIA stuff is some really fringe theory compared to the percentage of Republicans who still think today that Obama is a secret Muslim or that he's foreign-born.

And we have deep down the same thing with Meghan Markle. I don't know her, I have no particular feelings about her, but it's obvious she's been held accountable on much higher standards than basically anybody in the royal family, because a lot of people who claim not to be racists are persuaded she's an intrigant who doesn't "belong" to the royal family by her charms and merits. The fact that she's very light-skinned doesn't matter. She represents the corruption of the "pure white" line of the Windsors.
Just do the math. There have been blinds here about Andrew being a child molester, some other royals being closeted gays, or ordering murders. Pippa Middleton is a big time yachter, etc. Most of them are more serious than the countless petty accusations on Meghan.
Yet, combine all these blind items, even the ones on Kate, who's supposed to be eventually the queen (while Meghan will never amount to much) and you can't reach the number devoted to Meghan alone. It's almost a wonder that she can even move, given that she appears to be so dirty and rotten at this point her body must be controlled by cockroaches and worms.

Enty isn't an idiot. He knows his target audience consists mostly of racist loons who enjoy this image. And that's why he posts blind item after blind item that suggests that Markle should be put at her place, and the royal family is indeed no place for such a (black) woman.

Dannette said...

MeMe looked even worse than usual today with a very thin smile, tottering along the road hanging onto her Money Bag Haz. Laughing at the sleeves on the coat and the huge boots encasing the chicken legs.

Do Tell said...

You have to love the longwinded hypocritical tantrum of someone who stresses that they don't know someone but is willing to march with a torch to take up for that person while painting with the racist brush people they ALSO don't know who have only called out MM for her BEHAVIOR and INTERACTIONS with people out of the public eye who serve her.

Meghan is not being victimized in any way. nor is she being covered and criticized any more than Wallis Simpson, Camilla, Fergie in their heydays or Kate Middleton when she first started dating William seriously.

Totto_ said...

Here we go with the "yur r8cizzz if u hate her!!11" bullshit, it's rich how they always say that you can't hate her because nobody knows her personally, but here they are acting like Markle's the one paying their bills, even to the extent of making a post of more than FIVE paragraphs about how we're such jelli haterzz for not liking her, it's actually getting exhausting, how long can we say that her racial background is NOT the problem? Sugars will still say that it is even though I've never seen anyone on these threads criticizing her for her race, it's always the sugars who point out her race on every post and make it seem like it's a problem, she's biracial, GET OVER IT.

BTW, royal blinds always get the biggest numbers of posts, remember those blinds about Kate getting a surrogate or about Diana being a yacht girl? But yeah, Markle is the first woman to EVER get criticized for being a royal, get your head out of your ass Angela!

Cee Kay said...

Nobody dislikes Meghan because she's (half) black. Well, some might, but we learn early on to just ignore idiots. No, we dislike Meghan because she is fake as fuck, and it shows.

Unknown said...

i think she is just very insecure, and that is what shows, but people love to read her negativly, she doesnt know protocol, after she curtsied she looked at william almost for aproval.. people love to judge,...just judge and don't try to have any understanding..

I think it is sad to read all these comments on various outlets being so judgy..
That's my look on things, will probarbly be killed off for it huh? hahaha
Give her a few years to get used to things, she had live altering moments in just a few years,move to england, new family in the bloody spotlights of spotlights, marries, baby on the way, racists comments, crazy family talking crap about her to caus they are trash and jealous AF, they hadn't seen or spoken to her in years, but people judge her... but with all this, i ask you HOW WOULD YOU FEEL!???? would you know how to be, act or whatever,.. perfectly for everybody in the world? I see the LOVE between her and harry, he is NOT going to be king so they can have a bit off a free-ish life not like king to be william,...

so let her be, and get used to it all,... that's it lighten the F up abot her, it's the human thing to do,...no narcisist label, or social climber or whatever i read about her,...she is getting used to it all...SIMPLE TO SEE NOW RIGHT??!!

Bravo & LOL

Urban Rosebud said...

Totto- I get what you are saying. But European Americans started that "one-drop" rule. If it applies to blacks who are considered pariahs then it should be applied to blacks in KP. Meghan Markle is considered black due to the one-drop rule.

Yes, we do indeed have what is considered a full-blooded black woman in KP based on that. Let's not banter about ole Nutmegs whiteness now. Those who run the world made those rules & it had been fine with you all up until now???

BTW- Meg said she was bi-racial a la Tiger. You see how that lie worked for him. He got his N-word wake up call "stat" af.

Urban Rosebud said...

Yes. This makes sense.

Urban Rosebud said...

Someone put on their critical thinking cap today. +1.

Totto_ said...

European Americans??? The fuck are you talking about? You make no sense and it's clear YOU are the one that has a problem with Markle being biracial. It's funny how you try to appear all "woke" but end up sounding like a dumb asshole.

Unknown said...

I hope you know what u just parroted is pure nonsense and propaganda. Pls state that clearly.

bootsy said...

Hi Angela,
I see your point r.e. MM being held to a higher standard but as a Brit there is one issue with your assertion of her treatment when compared to Prince Andrew.
It's fairly simple really, and it's nothing to do with race. The things that Prince Andrew have been accused on here are positively monstrous. They are huge. Whilst they are way worse than anything MM can probably ever do, the extreme nature of the accusations do make them far less believable. Not because he's Prince Andrew and that he's a 'special royal', it's simply because that it would be hard to believe of anyone without real hard evidence.

In contrast, accusing MM of being a bit of a fake, hard nosed social climber isn't so much of a stretch is it. I have to say that I agree with that assertion, and it's not because she is black (actually she is also half white) or American. She just seems to be acting all the time and many others think so too, thus they doubt her authenticity, let alone the fact that her and Harry only met a year ago?! Sure, she would have married someone who worked in a boring office job after just a year, am I right?

Unknown said...

Nah bootsy, i don't think she is acting i think she really is insecure about it all and overwhelmed too...
People just like to judge, the fact that she is half b/w is in europe not that big off a deal as it is in america..

Just give her a few years to get used to it all, i think william is the one being off about it all, just look at videos off them it in DM to..

Just dont judge to much, you only see moment of them and all you read is hearsay or made up or judge by whomever...

i think that is sad,..

mercyprosperity said...

It was the BBC interview, where she is passing all kinds of strange hand signals, hands flopping around; then she says, "I didn't know who Harry was."

Show me any English speaking graduate of a major US university, who 'doesn't know who Harry is'.
He is the best known bachelor in the Western world.
Baloney, Markle.

News said...

Her mother is 100% her father 100% so she is half african american. She looked like her mum until she began lightening her skin and straightening her hair

News said...

50% black 50% white. Nowadays you can lighten 2-3 tones with laser and some creams. Look at Michael Jackson it is posible she could turn into lighter than Harry himself

News said...

Pippa yatcher? The woman is practically asexual! And the mother a puritan who wanted her to marry higher up into the aristocracy. No way she would sleep around. Few boyfriends and carefully hanpicked by mum. She doesnt need the money and it will ruin her entire family and her sisters to ashes.

News said...

You are obviously entittled to sn opinion but the Middletons were treated like SHIT and accused for over a decade of “plotting” her daughters marriage since birth. Kate accused of much worse than Meghan “just because they were commoners” At the time, Charles forced William to break up with Kate for that, and indeed they had a break up and Wills dated aristocrats, until finally went back to Kate. I always felt bad for her, many many years of criticisism. It became a national sport. So dont bring the racial issue here because even Diana and Fergie were always vilified even been the whitest lot.

News said...

Many white pearls on the family have been vilified, it wasnt s colour issue

News said...

She is fake just as Kate was “waity kate” and a commoner
