Meghan Markle Accuses of Peddling Lies By Her Sister

Meghan Markle’s half-sister has accused the Duchess of Sussex of being manipulative and peddling lies following the release of her latest documentary with Prince Harry.

Samantha Markle slammed the six-part Netflix docuseries, Harry and Meghan, calling it a ‘flopumentary’ that was ‘ridiculous’ and bordered on ‘comedy.’

‘It is so much rhetoric at this point, and so many lies have been thrown out there, debunked, and yet still there is this repeated need to push this narrative,’ she said on Channel Seven’s Sunrise on Friday.

‘Harry & Meghan’ contains a string of revelations and allegations about Harry’s mother Princess Diana, how the couple met, their first dates, ‘unconscious bias’ in the Royal Family and why the Sussexes ‘had to quit’ royal duties in March 2020.

Samantha responded to claims in the documentary that she was the reason her estranged daughter Ashleigh Hale, 37, was not invited to the Duchess of Sussex and Prince Harry’s wedding in 2018.

Meghan blatantly lied

Ashleigh claimed in the documentary that Meghan told Meghan she could not attend because of her strained relationship with Samantha and ‘guidance’ from the Palace.

‘I think I said I was hurt on some level, but I understood where it was coming from,’ she explained.

‘To know that it was because of my biological mother that this relationship, that’s so important to me, was impacted in that way. I feel like because of her. It was taken away. It’s been challenging.’

Samantha dismissed the rumours claiming the decision not to invite her daughter was ultimately up to Meghan.

‘It was really surprising to hear that there was a narrative spun that made Ashley feel like she was not invited because of something having to do with me,’ she said.

‘I heard from a royal insider who knows that it was up to Meghan, so Meghan lied to my daughter, which made my daughter resentful of me,’ she said.

‘I can imagine how my daughter would have felt, torn between the two and possibly feeling she couldn’t attend the wedding because of me.

‘That is not correct; it is a lie.’ Meghan said that, not the Royals. She then lied to my daughter, making her believe something was wrong with her that prevented her from attending the wedding.’

As part of their $100 million deal with Netflix, the couple handed over a trove of photos and videos from their relationship. Meghan revealed details about her relationship with her niece.

Samantha slammed comparisons made between Meghan and Princess Diana.

$100 million deal with Netflix

In the documentary, Prince Harry claimed that he ‘had to quit royal duties to protect Meghan, comparing her to his late mother.

The Duke of Sussex compared the paparazzi following Diana to the online harassment faced by Meghan as he described her as ‘prey’ for social media ‘hunters’.

Samantha dismissed the comparison, claiming that her sister was nothing like the late Princess.

‘Diana was never noted as a compulsive liar. Diana was never noted as destroying other people, ignoring people through heart attacks, strokes, pandemics,’ she said.

Ashleigh and Meghan opened up about their relationship in the series, with her father, Thomas Markle, initially connecting the two via email.

These included snaps of Meghan with Ashleigh on a trip to New Orleans before she met Harry and Meghan standing by Ashleigh’s side on her wedding day.

Grandparents raised Ashleigh

Ashleigh, a business immigration attorney who is thought to have inspired Meghan for her role in Suits, claims that she was not allowed to attend Meghan’s wedding in 2018

After Meghan emailed her niece, the two women became close, with Ashleigh claiming they exchanged ‘long emails’ several days a week.

Meghan said: ‘My dad said that Samantha had found her daughter, and I remember saying, oh, if you have her email address, I want to email her.

‘I think we both want the same thing.’ I wished for a sister, and she was like a little sister to me.

‘Ash was put through quite a bit by the media just by association, and I didn’t want her life to be plagued with all that drama.’

Her paternal grandparents raised Ashleigh since she was two years old, and they adopted her before reconnecting with her mother in 2007.

Ashleigh continued, ‘Communication with Meg became less and less frequent…’ my impression was that her relationships were being managed on some level.

‘She took me to New Orleans. We walked around, listened to good live music, ate too much food, and had too many drinks.

‘It was just the two of us, which I thought was very special.’ I think she takes on a lot of roles for me.

The football star’s big moment occurred amid a shift in Swift’s “Tortured Poets Department” setlist. He was greeted with boisterous yells and acclaim when he initially emerged on stage, dressed in a top hat and a black tailcoat and holding Swift in his arms.

Kelce fanned himself with a hand fan, twirled around, and grinned at Swift while her dancers assisted her with an onstage outfit change.

Swift looked to blow Kelce a kiss before walking away to sing “I Can Do It With a Broken Heart.”

Los Angeles — Taylor Wily, a former sumo wrestler best known for his role as confidential informant Kamekona Tupuola on “Hawaii Five-0” and “Magnum P.I,” died on Friday, according to a friend and a “Hawaii Five-0” producer. He was 56.

“Hawaii Five-0” executive producer Peter M. Lenkov announced his death to The Associated Press and posted numerous condolences to the actor on Instagram, adding, “I am devastated. “Heartbroken” was the caption for a photo of the two.

KITV 4 in Honolulu was the first to report Taylor’s death on Thursday. Additional data concerning the cause are unknown. Lina Girl Langi, a TV and radio personality, said on the show “Island Life Live” that she broke the news “with a heavy heart,” because Wily was a friend.

Taylor’s longtime friend and partner, Lenkov, uploaded a second post later on Thursday with a video montage of images and clips with him. He commented, “You charmed me into making you a regular on the show and my life.” You were a family member. I’ll miss you every day, brother.”

In an extra statement to the AP, Lenkov said it was difficult to characterize Wily’s “special” qualities and praised the actor’s abilities.

“Even though a lot of his ‘Hawaii Five-0’ and ‘Magnum’ scenes featured his comedy skills, he was also an incredible dramatic actor,” Lenvok pointed out. “I wrote a script for him a few years ago and hoped to cast him in my next production. I wanted to keep him near, both as a friend and as an artist. I’m devastated that I won’t get the opportunity.

Taylor played Kamekona on “Hawaii Five-0” from 2010 to 2020 and became a fan favorite. He reprised his role in the reboot of “Magnum P.I.” and had a noteworthy performance as a hotel worker in the 2008 comedy “Forgetting Sarah Marshall.”

Before becoming an actor, Taylor, born Teila Tuli, was a well-known sumo wrestler and UFC 1 competitor. In 1993, he became the first knockout victim in UFC history after opponent Gerard Gordeau’s kick knocked a tooth out of Wily’s mouth, ending the bout in 26 seconds.

Wily is survived by his wife, Halona, and two children.

Jeff Bezos Is Under Fire At The Washington Post As Patience Wears Thin Among Staffers

When will Jeff Bezos confront the crisis in his newsroom?

The Washington Post’s owner and Amazon millionaire has yet to take any meaningful action to address concerns at his newspaper, which continues in disarray while explosive reports are published on a daily basis, calling the outlet’s new publisher, Will Lewis, into severe question.

Staffers at The Post are losing patience with Bezos, whose only response to the Lewis disaster so far has been to send a 138-word, single-paragraph memo from his Mediterranean yachting vacation to a few leaders at The Post, assuring them that he wants standards to remain “very high.” That is the root of the problem, according to The Post staff. They, too, want standards to stay “very high” and are concerned that Lewis constitutes an active threat to that common goal.

Jeff Bezos Is Under Fire At The Washington Post As Patience Wears Thin Among Staffers

More drama occurred Friday when Lewis said that Robert Winnett, whom he had identified as the paper’s incoming editor, would not be coming to manage the Post. This comes after The Post published a 3,000-word front-page exposé this week, revealing that Winnett had previously utilized documents from a self-described “thief” for reporting.

Frustrations and concerns are so severe at the outlet that two of the institution’s Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists have chosen to come out publicly, pushing for a change in leadership, an unprecedented move at the venerable newspaper. David Maraniss, an associate editor at The Post for nearly 50 years, said he doesn’t “know a single person at the Post who thinks the current situation with the publisher and the supposed new editor can stand.” Scott Higham, who has been with The Post for over two decades, concurred and urged for Lewis’ dismissal.

“Will Lewis needs to step down for the good of The Post and the public,” Higham posted on Facebook. “He has lost the newsroom and will never win it back.”

To summarise, Maraniss and Higham express what many in the newsroom believe. In meetings with more than a dozen people inside and close to The Post this week, it became evident that Lewis, in his brief six months on the job, has completely alienated personnel and now confronts insurmountable odds in regaining the employee base he hopes to lead. Whether or not he has strong business ideas is irrelevant. He has lost the respect of his staff. And any successful leader will tell you that without the credibility to lead, it is impossible to accomplish anything, let alone perform a Herculean company revolution.

Jeff Bezos Is Under Fire At The Washington Post As Patience Wears Thin Among Staffers

Bezos’ spokeswoman did not reply to demands for comment on Thursday. But certainly, the millionaire realizes the grave predicament that has gripped The Post. And it’s hard to imagine he truly feels his brief memo to The Post’s leadership was sufficient to quell the worries that have sparked the extraordinary outrage at the newspaper. In fact, it’s worth noting that Bezos has not expressed support for Lewis recently, providing him options as he assesses the deteriorating situation and decides how to stop the bleeding.

Staff at The Post are eagerly awaiting Bezos’ action. Since Lewis’s fury flared earlier this month, CNN employees have repeatedly warned the outlet that the ongoing turmoil has diverted attention away from the newsroom’s essential job. With a high-stakes election just months away, it is far from ideal to have the attention of one of the country’s leading news organizations diverted by internal strife.

It’s “a massive distraction,” one Postie told me Thursday, adding that The Guardian’s eye-catching story accusing Lewis of allegedly advising then-U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson to “clean up” his phone amid the so-called “Partygate” controversies is “the talk of the newsroom.” (Both Lewis and Johnson refuted the story.)

“I don’t think the mood will change until something else changes,” the employee explained.

In Bezos’ absence, reports questioning Lewis’ ethical integrity continue to emerge. According to the Financial Times, Lewis “retains links” to a public relations agency that advises powerful corporate and political figures on negotiating difficult circumstances. While the FT reported that Lewis had sold his ownership part in the company, it also stated that the firm had “continued to distribute regular emails from Lewis,” producing “confusion among people in contact with the agency.”

While the FT’s Thursday story lacked the weight of other news outlets’ recent reports, it did raise new questions about Lewis’ past and entanglements.

Meanwhile, as The Post and other sources, including The New York Times, continue to investigate Lewis’ past, many more concerns will arise. And as the inquiries continue, those at The Post will undoubtedly have one in particular for Bezos: What are your plans for restoring your newspaper’s reputation and status?
