Meghan Markle’s Spotify interview with Bravo’s Andy Cohen was recently called into question in his memoir over her narration.
The Duchess of Sussex criticized The Real Housewives franchise, which Cohen produces, for spreading negative stereotypes of women in her Archetypes monologue but appears not to have put her allegations to Cohen directly, limiting his opportunity to respond.
The Watch What Happens Live host appeared surprised to hear her comments when the podcast episode finally aired, though he did say she was “lovely” in person. Meghan and Prince Harry’s Spotify deal recently collapsed and in the aftermath, questions have also been raised about the use of producers to conduct the less prominent interviews on the show.
In his book The Daddy Diaries, Cohen wrote:
“Meghan Markle’s podcast came out and it was interesting to see how they produced it. She narrates it, which is an effective device, especially if you’re cutting an hour down to twenty minutes, which she did.
