Meghan Markle sat down with Andy Cohen on the latest episode of her Archetypes podcast and revealed if she’ll be part of The Real Housewives franchise anytime soon. As much as many wish to see Prince Harry’s wife on reality TV shows, it looks like that will never happen.
Cohen is best known as the creator and producer of The Real Housewives franchise. When Markle admitted she’s a big fan of the show, the radio and TV talk show host asked the Duchess of Sussex a million dollar question about the possibility of her starring in the series.
The writer revealed that some fans wanted the former actress to join The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills even though she’s from Montecito, California Page Six reported. He knew he would never join the show because she’s already Meghan Markle, and the latter just started laughing.
The Suits star then admitted she’d never heard of her being considered for the series and jokingly asked Cohen if it was her audition for the show. Is this the moment? she joked.
Cohen poked fun at Markle’s remark, saying they would build the show around her if she ever joined the series. She then confirmed that she would not be on any reality show, despite believing it was so funny.
Elsewhere, Markle also shared with Cohen that she used to be a huge The Real Housewives fan. She even met the presenter twice, although she knew he would never remember it.
After Cohen Markle said at the beginning of Archetypes that it was nice to meet her, Archetypes revealed that they had met before. The first meeting took place before Suits aired, while the second meeting took place when the series was already in its second or third season in New York.
Markle went on to say that years ago she tried to get a guest spot on his late-night show, but to no avail. She explained that she really wanted to appear on his show because she was a huge Housewives fan at the time.
Unfortunately, she didn’t get someone like Cohen booked. He then called it the biggest mistake in the 13 years that the series aired.
After learning that Markle is a fan of his shows, Cohen asked if she still watches the show and admitted he was dying to know the answer.
However, Markle did admit that she stopped watching the series when her life started to have its own level of drama, apparently referring to her famous feud with the royal family. She then revealed that she now understands how the series became a huge part of pop culture.
