Meghan Markle Blasted By Former ‘Deal Or No Deal’ Briefcase Models After She Whines About Time On The Show
Former models on "Deal Or No Deal" are firing back at Meghan Markle after she whined about being "objectified" on the game show.
Earlier this week, we reported that Meghan Markle was whining about her time working as a briefcase model on the game show “Deal Or No Deal” from 2006-2007, saying that she felt “objectified.” Now, other former briefcase models from the show are speaking out to blast Meghan for the comments that she made about the game show.

Meghan, married Prince Harry years after she left “Deal Or No Deal,” had nothing but negative things to say about her time on the show while talking to Paris Hilton on her Archetypes podcast.
“I ended up quitting the show… I was so much more than what was being objectified on the stage,” she complained. “I didn’t like feeling forced to be all looks and little substance.”

‘There Was No Bra Station’
Meghan went on to complain about what she alleged were different beauty stations that were used to get models ready for “Deal Or No Deal” episodes, including one for adding “padding in your bra.” Kara, however, claims that there was no such station.
“There was no bra station,” she alleged.
Former “Deal Or No Deal” model Donna Feldman agreed with Kara, saying that she was not “treated like a bimbo” on the series like Meghan said she was.
“During my time on the show, neither myself nor anybody else I worked with was ever treated as such, in my opinion,” Feldman said. “However, it’s important to note that everyone has their own experience, and I can only speak from mine.”
“Everybody knows what you’re signing up for when you’re hired as a ‘Briefcase Beauty,'” she continued. “Being hired based off your looks comes with the territory.”

Claudia Jordan Sounds Off
Claudia Jordan, who also once worked as a model on “Deal Or No Deal,” fired back at Meghan earlier in the week for saying that the game show “reduced” her to a bimbo.
“For clarity — yes getting a modeling gig on a game show isn’t necessarily about your intellect but every show the executive producers picked five models with the most outgoing and fun personalities to place mics on who they knew would engage with the contestants,” Jordan said on her Instagram Story, according to US Weekly.
“And ‘Deal Or No Deal’ never treated us like bimbos. We got so many opportunities because of that show,” she continued, adding that she loved her time on the show because it allowed her to pay “all her bills” while also advancing her career. Jordan went on to become a major television personality, appearing on shows like “Celebrity Apprentice” and “Real Housewives of Atlanta.”

“If you just show up and don’t engage then you’ll just get your check and not get much out of it but if you show up and seize your moments then there’s no limits to what you can do with the opportunity,” she wrote. “[This isn’t an] attack on Meghan cause Lord knows I’ve been defending this woman in the media for years and I still will but I just didn’t want any misunderstanding about the climate and environment on the ‘Deal or No Deal’ set.”
Since stepping down as a senior royal two years ago, Meghan has portrayed herself as a professional victim who whines and complains about virtually everything. We’re glad that other former “Deal Or No Deal” models decided to speak out to defend themselves and their show from Meghan’s comments, and we hope that she thinks twice before she whines about things in the future.
