Gayle King's New Show Reportedly Wants Meghan Markle as Its First Guest
While once upon a time Meghan Markle was rumored to be considering hosting her own talk show, these days it's seeming more likely that she will simply be a guest on one.
Let's rewind: Legendary TV personality Gayle King—who is friends with Prince Harry and Meghan—is preparing to premiere her new CNN show, somewhat ironically titled King Charles. This title comes from King's own last name, and her co-host Charles Barkley's first name.
In order to draw in viewers, King and Barkley are reportedly trying to secure the Duchess of Sussex as their first guest, although whether or not this will actually happen remains to be seen.
"Meghan is right at the top of their wanted list and Gayle and the show’s executives believe the duchess would guarantee an enormous launch audience," a production source said (via Express).
According to the source, King also wants to be the first to interview Meghan with her new "more serious image."
While the duchess has appeared on The Ellen Show in the past, in recent months she has seemed to focus her efforts on her various philanthropic projects, letting her husband Harry take the spotlight instead.
Meghan last did a round of press amid the release of her Spotify podcast series Archetypes in 2022, notably giving interviews to The Cut and Variety.
Of course, no interview made as many waves as the Sussexes' sit-down chat with Oprah Winfrey in March 2021, in which Meghan opened up about how difficult her time in the Royal Family proved to be, and why she and Harry decided to move away from it all.
If she decides to appear on King Charles, it will certainly be interesting to see which topics Meghan chooses to bring to the table.

This is an article and outlet for Meghan's PR reps. Also, I love the little teaser:

Meghan's "voice" is so distinct that you can always tell when has her prints on it.

I think Gayle is trying to find out the dirt on what happened with the "Paparazzi Chase."
She wants to be first to give us "Breaking News," but I doubt there's very much to tell.
It would be fun, though, if Gayle called her out on lying about what happened that night.

So she will go on the Gayle King show and talk about all the serious work that she doesn't do? Riveting.

What would be entertaining would be if someone like King got her onto the show with the promise of a puff piece, got her nice and comfortable with some innocuous chit chat and then very calmly and politely took her through some of the highlights of her bullshit over the past six years.
It would be fun to see if she did the narcissistic thing of doubling down and denying all or cracked and just stormed off the set.

Gayle might very well do that, R10.
Maybe she's sick of Meghan's shit too, and Oprah told Gayle to drop the hammer on her.

R10 that would be nice, but Gayle would never.
She wants to lob some fresh new racist grenades.

Gayle would never do that unless she wants the Harkle fangurls to boycott her.

Wait for three hundred negative Gayle articles by the UK tabs. A disheartened Katherine who is being picked on articles because Gayle didn't pick her and its Meghans fault. An infestation of bot and Klan Grannies trolling her SM squealing in racist. With the generic racist comment. I'm not racist I just don't like her after the Oprah interview. I didn't even know she is black. Then a feature in Dlisted with 1000 comments by the trolls. Gayle is very brave.

Oooo, I hope she mentions how she forced the advertiser to change that laundry detergent commercial, I never get tired of hearing that story.

The Markles are toxic. Yes, they are immediate headline and ratings-grabbers, but they're troublemakers. They lie, they always play the victim, they cause sensationalism. They are poison and should be avoided. Gayle King should find another way to promote and build her show. Stop going after the slimiest and lowest common denominators. Don't give them a platform to lie and grift.
Gayle King is an idiot for defending them. She knows Harry and Markle are liars.

She has a weekly radio show now on SiriusXM. While driving back from visiting my mom, I listened to her mentioning to her listeners that she’s determined to find an apt with substantial outdoor space. Also has to have four bedrooms. In Manhattan.

How does Gayle think she’ll ever be able to get the biggest celebrity in the world?

I think I've underestimated both King and Markle. They're now starting to use their unlikable personalities as a weapon and ratings draw.
If Markle appears as a first guest on "King Charles", I'll tune in, so, it's working with me.
Besides, I've always like Charles Barkley.
I dislike Gayle King; always have. I give her, however, grudging respect.
During the immediate, public social media grief-signaling aftermath of Kobe Bryant's death, she was among the few, at least that I know of, who dared to broach the topic of his questionable behavior regarding the criminal sexual assault charge that was dropped because the then alleged survivor accepted a settlement.
That took balls and she took a hit for it.
Whether that's made her gun shy or emboldend her, I don't know, but that question is another reason to watch if Markle does appear on "King Charles".
I think Markle won't appear unless she's given prior approval of the topics she'll discuss.

Well no one wants to listen to Markle gabble about all the world-shaking causes she’s involved with but WME is trying to move her past her grievance tour.

This is where you're mistaken, R29. Very few people here are William or Kate fans. We don't give a fuck about any of them. It's just that Meghan and Harry are so awful and unlikeable. He was an idiot but somewhat charming pre-Meghan. Now he's as bad as she is.

The show should be called "King / Charles." That's with a forward slash between the two names. And they would still get the play on words across.
To simply call it "King Charles" is friggin stupid.

That's a great idea.
Please write to CNN and tell them to change the title before the show airs.
Otherwise, they'll be stuck with the stupid name King Charles forever.
