First she wanted to be the next Angelina Jolie. Now Meghan Markle wants to be the next Gwyneth Paltrow. Guess what - she's neither.
She knows how to pick her subject matter!
Remember when all the chatter surrounding Meghan Markle was about these surefire Hollywood roles that she was going to land?
Well, it’s a new week, and with it comes another avenue for guaranteed success for Malibu Meg!
Her lifestyle blog!
That raises an intriguing question: Does Meghan believe she can be the next Gwyneth Paltrow?
I’m not talking about as an actress, of course. The day that Meghan Markle lands a role in The Avengers is the day I wake up to an inbox full of birthday wishes from the Sussex Squad.
Basically, it ain’t happening.
Gwyneth Paltrow launched Goop in 2008. Originally a lifestyle newsletter, it morphed into an actual company – complete with fashion brand collaborations, a magazine, a podcast, and even a Netflix series called The Goop Lab.
Meghan Markle believes she can follow in Paltrow’s footsteps, according to royal expert Myka Meier.
I think she’s going to do a goop, like a new version of The Tig. I really think that’s coming.
Citing “a friend with… insider knowledge,” she continued:
I’m pretty sure there’s a goopish thing coming soon, for a few different reasons. I have a friend with a little bit of insider knowledge, and I think she’s already working on something. I think we will be seeing something very interesting and creative with masterminds from all over the world coming together to bring something inspiring soon.
“Masterminds from all over the world?” Are we talking the same masterminds she’s employed to run her PR apparatus?
The same “masterminds” who have taken this red-hot couple who reportedly had the potential to earn hundreds of millions of dollars and have them narrating an elephant documentary and reading Thomas The Tank Engine?
I’d love to believe she’s finally getting some competent help, but the track record of Meghan Markle and the “masterminds” she surrounds herself with isn’t all that great.
Meghan may very well kickstart her blog again. In fact, given those elephant documentary reviews, it’s probably her best option.
She is never going to be a Hollywood A-lister. Her voice-over career will likely come to nothing. And it looks like she’s blowing the one big chance she has to make serious money with her “tell-all” book.
Picking Omid Scobie to pen a book of this magnitude? It’s like announcing a new Avengers movie with Mr. Bean playing Tony Stark.
Or Meghan Markle cast as Pepper Potts. Can you imagine?
