Samantha Markle, Meghan Markle’s half-sister, is back at it with another one of her “defamation” suits, and it’s like watching a sitcom that just won’t end. The first time around, the judge practically laughed her out of court and labeled her a nuisance. But did Samantha learn her lesson? Nope! She came charging back for round two in April, desperately seeking attention, fame, and maybe a little extra cash.
This week, Samantha found herself in a Florida courtroom, probably wondering if the third time’s the charm. She’s so thirsty for a reaction that you can practically see the tumbleweeds rolling through her courtroom drama. It’s like she’s being “run” by some British media outlets, considering how they’re gobbling up every bit of this juicy spectacle.
Samantha is, dare we say, “optimistic” about securing a trial against the Duchess of Sussex for her alleged “defamation” case. She’s claiming that Meghan defamed her during the infamous Oprah interview in 2021 and their Netflix docuseries, “Harry & Meghan.” Maybe she’s hoping for a lifetime supply of popcorn?
This time, Samantha is seeking damages exceeding $75,000, all because Meghan supposedly implied that she was an “impostor” and a “charlatan.” She even argued that Meghan’s “defamatory” comments caused her book, “The Diary of Princess Pushy’s Sister,” to nosedive in sales. Poor Samantha, right?
Her lawyer, Peter Ticktin, even played the “afraid to leave the house” card due to alleged harassment. But let’s be real, Peter, you’re not fooling anyone with that one.
Meghan’s lawyer, Michel Kump, didn’t hold back, stating that Samantha’s claims were about as defamatory as a wet noodle. He argued that this whole lawsuit was like a dog chasing its own tail, running headfirst into defamation law and the First Amendment. Ouch!
Now, Samantha is back at it, emphasizing Meghan’s Oprah interview and her Netflix docuseries as she tries to bring the case to trial once more. She optimistically states, “I think the truth stands on its own.” Oh, Samantha, bless your heart.
But here’s the real kicker – Samantha also claimed she raised Meghan and taught her how to walk or something. The idea that Meghan somehow “hurt” the sales of Samantha’s book is like trying to sell ice to an Eskimo, especially when Samantha has been cashing in on Meghan’s name for years. “Meghan defamed me while I was trying to exploit her for the millionth time, your honor!” Seriously, who’s Samantha’s lawyer? They might need to reconsider their career choices because this isn’t just a nuisance suit; it’s like a real-life episode of “Crazy Stalker Chronicles.”
