I wish that Meghan Markle’s extended family would leave her alone. I wish that American and British tabloids would stop interviewing Meghan’s half-sister Samantha in particular. Samantha is not some “dodgy uncle” who pops up once a year to say something inappropriate. Samantha Grant is actually out here, week after week, selling her sister out, spreading malicious sh-t about Meghan and their family. It’s gross. I saw yesterday that In Touch Weekly had a new interview with Samantha and I just shrugged and hopped everyone would ignore it. Nope. The Daily Mail picked it up, as did many of the British tabloids.

She feels Meghan should return the favor — financially. Referencing the costly Ralph & Russo gown Meghan wore in her engagement photo shoot, Samantha says, “If you can spend $75,000 on a dress, you can spend $75,000 on your dad.”
