The already-gigantic rift between Meghan Markle and her family is about to get wider — if the gossip is true.
According to E! News, the Duchess of Sussex’s half-sister Samantha Grant is part of the next cast of Celebrity Big Brother in the UK.
Obviously, this is going to be a huge embarrassment to Markle and royal family. The reality show is known for having cameras on the contestants non-stop, and Grant has been known to bad mouth her half-sibling (their father is Thomas Markle, who was supposed to give his daughter away at her May nuptials but couldn’t make it to England due to health issues). In addition to having a memoir in the works titled The Diary of Princess Pushy’s Sister, Grant has done a number of interviews slamming Markle for not being part of their clan since becoming an actress.
“Meghan and I do not have a relationship now,” Grant told TMZ in May. “The last year I think has been strained because what tabloids have said, but Meg does not have a relationship that I’ve seen with anyone in the family.”
Grant was also allegedly involved in their father’s staged paparazzi photo shoot, which he did just to get money leading up to the wedding.
Will Samantha Grant be on the cast list? Only time will tell — but we know at least one family that’s hoping these rumors are BS.
