‘In no way am I comparing any of my life experiences to Meghan Markle,’ she said, ‘but, I do know what it’s like to be on a TV show or a political campaign where people are leaking stories about you with the sole intention to make you look bad, and let me tell you, it would do a number on your mental health like you wouldn’t believe. It will make you feel isolated. It will make you feel paranoid.’
