The Duchess of Sussex recently “slammed her time working as a briefcase model” on the US version of Deal or No Deal from 2006 to 2007. Speaking on a new episode of US Weekly, host Christina Garibaldi said that a source said that Meghan chooses to not get “demotivated” by the backlash.

Ms Garibaldi said: “A source tells us this negative backlash is extremely disappointing to Meghan.

“[However] she learned a long time ago not to get too cut up or demotivated by those who wish to dwell in negativity, especially over something so trivial as a job she left many years ago.”

She continued: “The source adds [that] she knows that there are certain critics who will go to great lengths to stir the pot and call her out as a hypocrite in any way possible.

“While she doesn’t find it fair, or easy to deal with at times, her general response is to shrug her shoulders and say [that] it is what it is.”

She added that the “bottom line” for the Duchess is that “she has said what she wanted to say” and she “doesn’t regret her comments”.

Ms Garibaldi added: “She’s moved on and hopes others can now do the same.”

The 41-year-old is currently facing bashlash over her comments of her first acting job on the US game show.

Ms Garibaldi claimed that Meghan stated, in her podcast, that she was “reduced to a bimbo” and that she ended up “leaving with this pit in her stomach”

She added that Meghan knew she was “so much more than what was being objectified on the stage”, adding that she “didn’t like being forced to be all looks and little substance”.

Since the podcast episode was released, former Real Housewives of Atlanta, Claudia Jordan, who worked on the game show alongside the Duchess, has shut down Meghan’s claims that the models “were treated like bimbos”.

In her Instagram post, Ms Jordan stated that the opportunity of appearing on the show “is what you make it”, adding that there were “no limits to what you can do with the opportunity”.
