RoyaltyIn the most recent episode of her podcast ‘Archetypes’, Meghan Markle (41) talks candidly about her time in the series ‘Deal or No Deal’. She makes some remarkable statements about this. For example, she felt ‘reduced to a bimbo’. However, her former colleague Claudia Jordan (49) absolutely does not agree with this. She responds on Instagram and gives the Duchess of Sussex lick for piece. “The show has never treated us like bimbos,” it sounds resolute.

Sixteen years ago, Meghan Markle made her debut in the ‘Deal or No Deal’ series. In a new episode of her podcast ‘Archetypes’ she talks about this period to Paris Hilton (41). They’re talking about beauty and brains, but Meghan feels she was mostly judged on the former. “I quit that show because I was so much more than how I was portrayed. I hated that it was only focused on my appearance,” she says. “My character had little substance. I felt like I was being reduced to a bimbo.” Her statements have caused quite a stir, with former ‘Deal or No Deal’ co-star Claudia Jordan feeling inclined to respond and stand up for host Howie Mandel.

Claudia responds to Meghan’s statements on Instagram. “Just to be clear, yes, getting a modeling appearance on a game show isn’t necessarily about your intellect. But in each show, the executive producers picked out five models with the most outgoing and fun personalities to give them microphones. They knew they were the ones who would get along well with the participants.” She continues: “And ‘Deal or No Deal’ has never treated us like bimbos. That show gave us so many opportunities. I enjoyed this experience very much. It was a step up the ladder that I have climbed for 25 years, which has paid all my bills and which has led me to appear in many shows, campaigns and magazines.” Jordan even appeared as a co-host in the Miss Universe pageant in 2009. “Not bad for ‘a bimbo’.”
Jordan does not see her public statement as a direct attack on the Duchess, quite the contrary. “I want to emphasize that I am not attacking Meghan. The Lord knows that I have defended this woman in the media for years and will continue to do so. But I don’t want any misunderstandings about the working conditions on the set of ‘Deal or No Deal’. I especially want to protect host Howie Mandel, who was nothing but kind and respectful to all of us.”
