Whoopi Goldberg slams Meghan Markle for whining about ‘bimbo’ gig, making ‘other women feel bad’

News & Politics

Whoopi Goldberg ripped into Meghan Markle for complaining that she felt “objectified” and “reduced to a bimbo” during one of her first jobs as a “briefcase girl” on NBC’s “Deal or No Deal.”

“I just want to say that on that show you basically had a suitcase, and they wanted to know: Is this the deal you want, or is this not the deal you want? I don’t know that the people who are sitting there are thinking about you like [a bimbo.] They’re thinking, ‘I want the money,'” Goldberg said on “The View.”

Goldberg was referencing the Duchess of Sussex’s recent comments on her podcast “Archetypes with Meghan,” during which she and fellow super-brainiac Paris Hilton took themselves very, very seriously and complained about how the rest of the world has not always done likewise.

“I was surrounded by smart women on that stage with me, but that wasn’t the focus of why we were there,” Markle lamented. “I would end up leaving with this pit in my stomach knowing that I was so much more than what was being objectified on the stage. I didn’t like being forced to be all looks and little substance, and that’s how it felt for me at the time — being reduced to this specific archetype: the word ‘bimbo.'”

According to Goldberg, Markle just might have been complaining about nothing and should perhaps have been grateful to have “the gig.”

“The objectification might have come from you and how you felt about how these women were being portrayed,” Goldberg suggested.

“We’re performers. When you’re a performer, you take the gig. You take the gig, sometimes you’re in a bozo suit, sometimes you got a big nose, and this is just the way it is … we’re actors,” she continued.

Goldberg went on to add, “My point is, if you see it and that’s how you feel, just maybe you don’t want to make the other women feel bad because maybe they’re not, you know, maybe they’re trying to make a living, too.”
