Following Meghan Markle’s engagement to Prince Harry, she has been in the spotlight like never before. That being said, a lot of stories about her past have surfaced.
A former co-model has revealed that during the time she and Meghan used to work on Deal or No Deal, the game show’s production team forced the actress to stuff her bra.
38-year-old Tameka Jacobs claimed that every single one of the models, including Meghan, would have to do it and they would often joke about the amount of foam inside it.
Also, when their clothing did not require wearing a bra, they’d use tape to hold their breasts up.
For Meghan, the game show was just a ‘pit-stop’ on her way to becoming a successful actress, however.
‘Meghan’s aspirations were to win an Oscar or to be on Broadway, so if you are in a mini dress, high heels, with your boobs taped together and pushed up when what you really want to do is serious acting, then it is tough,’ Jacobs explained.
What’s even worse, is that apparently, the briefcase babes would have to go through a very embarrassing ritual every morning when the producers would inspect them to make sure they hadn’t gained any weight.
The ladies were lined up for inspection in front of a show’s bigwig that usually sat in a chair and ogled at their bodies.
As for how the future royal got the job, she apparently had to audition in a swimsuit.
‘Meghan never was self-conscious. She never seemed insecure or shy, although she was not one of the girls who’d parade around in her underwear. She was one of the quiet ones,’ the former co-model said, adding that even though they had to be careful about their weight, Meghan would secretly eat pizza quite often.
