Jessica Mulroney posted a photo from Meghan Markle’s wedding on Instagram

We haven’t talked about Jessica Mulroney in more than a month. The racist controversy happened in June, when Jessica lost her sh-t at Sasha Exeter, an Instagram influencer who was posting about racism and Black Lives Matter. Jessica took it personally, like Exeter was specifically calling her out, and Jessica threatened Sasha’s livelihood and sponsorships in writing. Exeter called Jessica out publicly and the drama lasted for a solid month. Jessica’s BFF the Duchess of Sussex was dragged into the Canadian drama even though Meghan didn’t do anything but mind her business in LA. The British tabloids had a field day but they could never get their stories straight – would it be worse for Meghan if she stayed friends with Jessica, or would it be worse if Meg dumped Jessica?

Well, I think this is our answer. Jessica posted this Instagram on Thursday. It’s from Meghan and Harry’s 2018 wedding, and you can see one of Jessica’s sons behind Meghan making a face. The IG is so multi-purpose! It shows that Jessica still feels comfortable enough using a photo of her FRIEND Meghan on her social media. It’s also a reminder that Jessica was part of the Sussex wedding, and so were Jessica’s kids. And it’s just a reminder that Jessica still associates everything about Meghan with positivity. Plus it’s just a cute photo.

So, there you go. Jessica and Meghan are still friends. Jessica also had a chance to “cool off” and that allowed the press around her to die down too. I feel like this is one of her first steps to her road to recovery. She’s reminding everyone that she’s BFFs with the Duchess.

Note: after everyone had a chance to see Jessica’s new Instagram for several hours, she made her ‘gram private Thursday afternoon. Just as well. Can’t be too obvious! She has to at least put some effort into the appearance that she’s NOT trying to use her friend’s image to rehabilitate her own.

    I forgot her kids were in the wedding too. Always remember Benita’s two girls. Her son is cute. That’s all I’ve got for Ms Mulroney.

    • Yup, Me says:

      She’s forgettable and so are her kids. Which is why she did this.

      I don’t understand why people are assuming that Jessica posting a picture of Meghan says ANYTHING about how Meghan feels about Jessica, though.

      Meghan is currently getting positive press for the things she’s doing (negative press, too, but that’s not the point here). Meghan is speaking out for BLM, and voting and feminism and a bunch of other things it’s only common sense to be in favor of. She’s on the right side of history. Jessica, on the other hand, has been outed as a rancid Karen. She’s an example of the insidious white female arm of the white supremacist system. Posting a picture she has of Meghan, and getting attention for it is her attempt to look like she’s more in alignment with all of the positive and progressive things Meghan’s speaking than the treachery of white women benefitting and weaponizing a toxic, racist system against Black and Brown women.

      I’m very curious about whatver phone calls or notices she got from the Sussex camp about that photo.

  2. Sofia says:

    I just wish she would stop using Meghan to rehabilitate her own image. I just think posting a picture of Meghan on your Instagram just screams “I’m still her friend. Don’t think for a second I’ve been dropped” which… I think is unnecessary tbh. She would benefit from staying low but she needs attention so here we are.

    Edit: Don’t think for a second she’ll face any /real/ consequences. She’s a white woman. More importantly: she’s a rich white woman with connections. Her in-laws, however hated they are, are rich and connected. Her own family (the Brownstein’s) are rich and connected. The worst she’ll face is public humiliation. She’ll have a job by the end of the year – even if it’s “just” a glitzy board position at some/her family’s company

    • escondista says:

      this.

    • Amy Too says:

      I don’t like this either. It’s a wedding picture of Meghan. An intimate photo from a very special day in Meghan’s life. And it’s a wedding photo I haven’t seen before, which makes it incredibly newsworthy, and show-off, like “Look! I have special, never before seen photos from Meghan’s Royal Wedding AND I feel comfortable enough to share them publicly!” It would make a little sense if it was posted on the Sussex’s wedding anniversary. Or if it was a photo of Jessica and/or her kids taken at the wedding or the reception, or even if it was a photo of her son being cute at the wedding that showed the back of Meghan, but this is basically a portrait of Meghan’s face on her wedding day. A royal wedding photo featuring Meghan posted to her social media when their wedding was years ago and their anniversary is months away. It’s like an advertisement: “I know Meghan! My kids were at the wedding! I am so close to her that I can publish her wedding photos to my social media.” Why not a more recent photo if they are really are still friends and Meghan is okay with this?

      • TyrantDestroyed says:

        That photo was well known around that time and it sort of became a meme because of the kid’s thrilled expression. His dad even joked about it.
        I have no comment on Jessica since I expected that she would make an easy comeback. She’s way too privileged to face long-term consequences.

      • Maevo says:

        Yes it’s just so blatant! Not a fan.

  3. Mumbles says:

    “When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time.” – Maya Angelou.

    Still think what she did to Sasha Exeter was rotten.

    • My3cents says:

      Of course. I think she’s learned in future to do these sort of things more slyly and in a less open and upfront matter. I doubt she changed.

      • Sofia says:

        Exactly. I doubt she’s upset over her own actions. She’s probably more upset about the bad press she’s got. As you say, she’ll continue to act like this, but just won’t leave a paper trail

      • Prayer Warrior says:

        Let’s not. Instead, let’s hope and pray she’s learned something and grown. What she tried to do to Sasha Exeter was beyond rotten. But let’s hope she’s not gone sly and underground. Let’s hope instead she learnt a harsh lesson in reality and uses her privilege for good, alongside her friend.

        Meghan doesn’t suffer fools gladly, and I doubt she’ll allow this to be swept under the rung unless Jess learns, grows and figures out a healthy, BLM way forward.
        There are children involved, so let’s hope for the best (tho’ prepare for the worst) and hope she’s learnt her lesson and why she was so far down the wrong path. She’ll have a lot of backtracking to do to get on the right path. Personal growth can be hard. I’m going to follow Meghan’s lead……

      • Soupie says:

        Why are some people so surprised that Meghan would remain friends with Jessica Mulroney? When you run in those circles you run across racist narcissists all the time. They schmooze and air kiss and blah blah blah. They don’t call each other out over horrible ongoing sh–. They might call out a little bit of it privately but let’s get real, they let it slide all the time in that world. And also in the general world! That’s why we are where we are today. Meghan’s just playing the game the way it’s played. That doesn’t always, in every case, make her a bad person.

      • BnLurkN4eva says:

        @Soupie, that’s not in keeping with the Meghan that I’ve been following for awhile now. Everyone gets blind sided by friends and even family sometimes because no matter how well you know a person they are still only presenting parts of themselves to you. Meghan was no doubt blind sided by what Jessica did and maybe had to have some hard conversations with her in order to continue their friendships, if that’s indeed the case.

        Millions of Americans have been waking up to viciously racist families and friends and struggling to deal with them. How many times on here have people acknowledged to having racist Trump loving parents and siblings who were previously liberal minded people that they now have to limit contact with in order to remain civil. It’s insulting to suggest that Meghan has known this side of Jessica and had just been ignoring it when it’s more likely, she has been caught off guard like so many others.

    • Ainsley7 says:

      It was rotten. It’s also telling that instead of showing any kind of personal growth, she’s using her original, “I’m not racist because I’m friends with Meghan“ excuse. I also don’t think that posting a picture and taking it down later proves they are still friends and that Meghan approved of this. I just can’t imagine Meghan giving her permission to use her like that in such an obvious way. Especially right now when she has been working to highlight voting in the US election. I doubt she wantEd the topic shifted. The press will always be more interested in a public figures private life. So, it will inevitably overshadow what Meghan has been doing.

      • Amy Too says:

        This—claiming friendship with Meghan as a way to prop herself up/defend herself, and dragging Meg’s name into something that had nothing to do with her—is a large part of how Jessica screwed up the first time. She’s doing the exact same thing, again now. Posting, completely randomly (as in not for their wedding anniversary or for Meghan’s birthday, or to promote some kind of project that the two of them are working on together) a bridal picture of Meghan, just to remind everyone that she was/is friends with Meghan and to force the association between the two of them into people’s minds at a time when Meghan is being lauded for her work and people are sticking up for her all over the internet, does not seem to prove or even suggest that Jessica has learned anything, grown, or is being a better person, like some commenters hope/believe. She’s trying to get in on some of that good press that Meghan’s been getting lately. People have lately been feeling righteously defensive of Meghan and calling out the British tabloid reporters for their nasty, double standard, hand wringing coverage of her, and Jessica wants some of that energy to be directed towards her. “Embrace and defend me with the same energy! I’m an intimate friend of Meghan’s who was also a victim of internet trolls and mean media coverage!”

  4. escondista says:

    She could be riding Meghan’s coat tails by posting pics for relevance again too.
    I think I would leave social media if i behaved this badly.

  5. Michelle says:

    She is just thirsty. Stop giving her something to drink.

  6. Case says:

    I adore Meghan and I’ve definitely been friends with some people I wouldn’t necessarily want to be judged for, so I’m not saying this maliciously at all, but I feel like Meghan’s image is getting pulled down a bit by her association with this woman. She’s so crass and yes, racist.

    • Sofia says:

      In the big wide world, Jessica is irrelevant. People aren’t going to look at Meghan and go “Well you’re friends with Jessica so sorry we won’t work with you.” I think Meghan’s image is fine and continues to be fine. And with all that’s going on in the world, I forgot Jessica Mulroney was a person

      Honestly, the best thing Meghan did with this was to do nothing at all. Let Jessica and the Mulroneys deal with it

      • Sunshine says:

        SOFIA I agree with you. Meghan is just fine doing her thing in California. The best thing she said is nothing at all. Meghan is not Jessica’s keeper. I hate how people always try to pivot people’s biases on to their black friends/spouses/relatives. We do our best.

    • windyriver says:

      Things get complicated when kids are involved. Meghan’s obviously been close to Jessica’s children, so for their sakes if nothing else, I’d expect the two women still have a relationship at some level. Notice that’s the picture Jessica posted, the one focused on her son behind Meghan.

      Personally, in this situation I’d keep my head down and work privately on repairing my relationship if I valued it, but obviously that’s not how Jessica rolls. However, the two women are in such very different places now, their connection will likely fade as time goes by.

      Anyway, I guess Meghan must be okay with this. We’ll see what comes next for Jessica.

      • SomeChick says:

        There’s no indication how Meghan feels about it.

        Ms Mulroney needs to delete instagram from her phone. Sheesh.

  7. Bee says:

    I think this is between two people who are friends. Meghan also “used” Jessica’s connections when she moved to Canada. Widely know Jessica is a socialite and opened doors for her. Even that soho friend was intro from her and that’s how she met Harry. I’m not saying this is tit for tat but you don’t forget someone when they helped you when you first moved into a country. The way I see is she probs gave Jessica the ok after sometime has passed.

    • VS says:

      I wouldn’t use the term “used”; I would say Jessica helped Meghan connect with people in CAN. Yes Jessica behave very poorly but it is up to M to decide here……I feel like she has M ok.
      it is between them really

      • Gingerbee says:

        @VS, that is the same mojo the trolls comes up with that Meghan “used” Jessica for connections.

    • J.Mo says:

      I thought she helped Megan with her move to Toronto too, but someone corrected me with a timeline showing she had moved there, had a boyfriend and established The Tig by the time she met Jessica. I think she was fine without Jessica’s old Toronto links, I haven’t looked into it yet, sorry If I’m wrong.

  8. Sarah says:

    That two headed pic of her and Kate looks so strange!

  9. Maevo says:

    Oof not a good look. It will probably work though.

  10. julia says:

    I think in this case, a picture of the two of them would be much more appropriate, Not an image of Meaghan on her freaking wedding day. I think it’s pretty tacky actually.

  11. Amy Bee says:

    More likely she put her instagram on private because the Meghan haters swarmed her account.

  12. Lizzie Bathory says:

    This is so not the point of this post, but looking at Jessica’s heels in that pic makes my feet hurt. I wasn’t wearing very high heels even in “the before time,” but now? Can’t even imagine spending a day in those.

  13. DS9 says:

    She’s like totally still good with Meghan which is why she posted old pics….

    Uh huh

  14. Queen Meghan’s Hand says:

    The Mulroney boys were very very cute at the Sussex wedding.
    Her game is working. I’m thinking about her adorable children and handsome husband, and wondering why and how this crap with Sasha Exeter exploded.
    I really really hope Sasha will be okay and won’t face retribution.

    • Yup, Me says:

      Her game might be working for you. I would imagine people who have been harmed by white women’s bs don’t give a shit about her child’s expression for a few minutes at Meghan’s wedding. Jessica remains what she is. Treacherous white women have kids all over the place. That doesn’t stop them from abusing Black and Brown people… or THEIR kids.

    • Erinn says:

      Handsome husband where!? He looks like if Rocky Balboa owned a tanning salon.

  15. HK9 says:

    I think Megan knows what the lay of the land is with Jessica and will manage her accordingly. And she needs to be managed because after that fiasco, anyone with an ounce of sense wouldn’t post about Megan unless it was private. I would literally not post a pic of Megan for the next year. However, Jessica is too thirsty and entitled to act with any sense of discretion. Sigh…

  16. L4frimaire says:

    This seems kind of weird and opportunistic.Not comfortable with this. Mulroney has gone from being a mentor to being messy. I don’t have an opinion of whether they should remain friends or not because we all have some very messy friends, but Jessica is slowly putting her foot back on the water. Gotta say their are certain conveniences to border closings and travel bans in this case.

  17. Mma says:

    I know Jessica behaves badly but she is still Meghan’s friend, I feel like we are in a hurry to see a bad in someone and cancel them! She’s still a good friend to Meghan and that Sasha babe too was also riding on Jessica/Ethan friendship to drag the issue

  18. Vanessa says:

    I don’t why Jessica posted this picture of Meghan what her motives were but this was like a Christmas present for the haters. Once again people still trying to make this story about Meghan when it has nothing to do with her whether Meghan and Jessica are still friends is no one business. People are need to stop trying to tell black people how to live our lives who to be friends with.

  19. Valiantly Varnished says:

    Posting an old pic doesn’t mean they are still friends or at the very least talking at this moment. It reads a little thirsty to me and more than a little obvious

  20. Snuffles says:

    I don’t care to weigh in on their friendship. That’s between them. And I won’t judge Meghan if she stays friends with her. Friends fuck up all the time. It doesn’t mean they deserve ghosting.

    • Erinn says:

      I mean, I guess that’s your choice. But I certainly hope that you extend that same kind of wiggle room to other celebs who have sh-t friends rather than being hypocritical. 🤷🏻‍♀️

  21. Aerohead21 says:

    Was JM right in June with the Sasha-sitch? No. I think some things are so blatantly wrong people ought to be “cancelled” and other times education goes a long way. I have the sense Meghan is intelligent enough to discern between the two as well. Was this her friend exposing her white privilege and showing how toxic it can be or how was this an attempt at true harm? If we cancelled every white privileged, undereducated person, what good is the BLM movement? Wouldn’t that defeat the purpose if we treated everyone in Jessica’s position like a racist when maybe they’re just ignorant?

    • BnLurkN4eva says:

      This is a interesting way to looking at it. In either case, it’s up to Meghan if she remains friends with Jessica or not.

  22. Guest with Cat says:

    JM is showing she’s one of those self centered idiot friends. A real friend would understand the vulnerable position Meghan is in trying to reestablish herself after the brutal Sussexit.

    If she had any sense whatsoever, she would realize now is not the time to try and rehabilitate her image and least of all by dragging Meghan’s image into it once again.

    She should stay off social media and go do good works. THAT would speak well of her. Not riding on someone else’s image which her proximity could only tarnish at this point.

    • Züri says:

      All of this. So spot on.

      I don’t care if MM is friends with her, that’s between them. I find JM extremely gauche and not particularly bright. Further, I looked at JM’s Instagram account before it went private and, eek, she is a flaming narcissist. I was shocked she turned a “happy birthday” post to her twins into something blatantly about herself.

      • Guest with Cat says:

        Eww, that’s awful. Still I won’t judge Meghan for JM’s faults. I have some very messy friends, myself. It’s always a hardship and a disappointment when their shenanigans somehow affect me, but these people got be in my life for a reason, meaning at some point their virtues outshined their flaws. I do sometimes cut them loose when they become toxic. That is harder than it looks when mutual friends are involved. I can understand if Meghan is in the same situation with JM, especially being a godmother to her children.

  23. Christine says:

    I just checked her insta and it isn’t private and there is no photo of Meghan. Am I missing something?

  24. SilentStar says:

    Remind me what Meghan has to do with her white friend’s racist actions toward an unrelated third woman again? (That’s rhetorical.)

    Poor Meghan getting dragged into this. Shame on her friend for dragging her.

  25. CC says:

    Am i the only one over with this drama? Sasha and Jessica apparently had a tense relationship prior and Jessica used her white girl privilege to destroy Sasha when she thought her post was about her. If it ended there, I would be totally on her side. But then this woman used mugxits (racists), who pretended to support her, to prop herself up. I can’t feel much pity for either woman, but i think Meghan is over it as well. Probably mortified, but told Jessica to stay low. This doesn’t seem like something that breaks friendships, but probably a serious conversation was had.

  26. Epic says:

    That side by side was the perfect “do this, not that” makeup tips.
