Thomas Markle: ‘I think Oprah Winfrey is playing Harry and Meghan’

thomas markle 603

60 Minutes Australia released the full video of their interview with Thomas Markle and it’s pretty disgusting. We previewed the mess last week, but now that the full video is out, I couldn’t even watch the whole thing because it was so gross to me. Not just Toxic Tom, who is genuinely a monster, but there is a whole lotta wtfery from 60 Minutes Australia and how they edited this piece and what questions they’re asking him or not asking him. I should also note that I’m finding it very odd to see Australian media giving platforms to people like Gary Goldsmith and Thomas Markle. There’s something going on there, and it feels like some kind of strategy is at play. Hm. Here’s the interview, I don’t blame you if you can’t get through it.

As we knew from the preview, Thomas raced out to give this interview just after Meghan gave birth. I think that was just happenstance, actually. Like, the 60 Minutes crew was already there to interview him and they managed to get some footage of him two weekends ago as the news about Lilibet Diana was breaking. One of the big headlines from the full interview is that Toxic Tom thinks – get this – that Oprah Winfrey is using Meghan and Harry for profit. Hey, that’s the Markles’ thing!

In a new interview with 60 Minutes Australia, Markle, 76, revealed he thinks Oprah Winfrey is exploiting the couple, and says that he even attempted to reach out to Winfrey to share his own side of the story.

“I think Oprah Winfrey is playing Harry and Meghan,” said Markle, who has not spoken to his daughter in three years. “I think she’s using them to build her network and her new shows, and I think she’s taking advantage of a very weakened man and getting him to say things that you just shouldn’t be saying on television. It seems to me that she’s pushing it to get more and more out of it, and Apple stock is going up,” said Markle, referring to Harry and Winfrey’s new Apple TV+ series, The Me You Can’t See. “Her show is going up. So to have someone bare their soul on four, five different shows to 50, 60 million people, even Dr. Phil wouldn’t do that.”

When asked if he has watched The Me You Can’t See, Markle said he has seen “some of it” and believes “it’s a set-up.” “I think she’s patting herself on the back and making a lot of money on this,” he said. “I’m sure she gives Harry money and Meghan money, but I don’t think it compensates for what they’re doing.”

When asked if he has attempted to speak with his daughter, Markle claimed he was “waiting for them to get to me” after trying to reach them early on but “never getting through.” However, he admitted that he has tried to reach Winfrey, leaving a letter at her gate “with my phone number and email.”

“I said, ‘give me a chance to tell my story,'” Markle explained. “I said it’s not fair to tell this story without hearing my story. I’ve [gotten] no response.” Markle went on to say that he’s “not attacking Oprah” but thinks Harry is “being put in a position where he’s saying things he’ll never be able to take back. That’s a horrible thing.”

[From Yahoo]

Absolute scum. Toxic user, know thyself: “…Taking advantage of a very weakened man and getting him to say things that you just shouldn’t be saying on television…” He’s so close to some kind of realization. So here’s my question, and I’m being 100% serious: is Thomas Markle still getting his marching orders from Kensington Palace? It feels like it, especially with certain talking points he promoted.

    What a vile POS.

  2. ThatgirlThere says:

    Imagine being so lazy and hateful as to turn on your daughter. Disgusting.

  3. AmyB says:

    I will admit – I have not seen/or know ALL the backstory here between Thomas Markle and his daughter Megan, but please for the love of God: Media – stop giving this POS airtime! He is such a gaslightor, and manipulator, that is quite obvious from the little I do know. Only bitter & furious b/c Megan decided to cut his toxicity out of her life. I refuse to watch that entire interview, for fear of vomiting! I know people like this in my own life, so I am all too familiar with this abusive, and manipulative behavior!

    • Amelie says:

      The only things Meghan had said about her father publicly had been positive before the fiasco the week of the wedding where it was revealed he had been posing and getting paid for pictures for a tabloid which was then exposed by another British tabloid (just writing that sentence gave me a headache). Up until then, as far as we knew, Meghan and her dad were just fine. She had never badmouthed him or criticized him and Meghan kept that drama under wraps. I think there was some speculation when it was revealed during their engagement interview that Harry had never met her dad and Harry said “the family that she never had” which hinted at some dysfunction in Meghan’s childhood.

      And then of course the half-sister started coming out and giving interviews left and right to anyone who would listen so the media sensed a story there and realized they could make money off Meghan’s unhinged Markle relatives. It does seem the press harassment towards Thomas Markle was pretty relentless, but Meghan’s mom was equally harassed just as much and she never said a word or sold our her daughter. I’m guessing Thomas probably really needed the money and figured Meghan would never find out. I’m guessing he had a pattern of this kind of behavior when Meghan was growing up because she didn’t just cut him off for no reason. I also think some of this was engineered by the half-sister who admitted to it who was pissed she wasn’t invited to the wedding and was hoping to ruin it somehow. Meghan doesn’t need any of these people in her lives. Also I don’t think Thomas Markle has a relationship with any of his grandchildren so Meghan keeping Archie and Lili away from him isn’t exactly anything new where he is concerned.

      • HeyJude says:

        Tom was a Hollywood union lighting technician for decades, he should not need any money. He should be set for life with a very generous pension.

        This is absolutely not a “oh he has no money” and has to sell these interviews story. He’s got an IATSE pension, he has money. If it’s not lasting for him, he’s blowing it on stupid shit. He’s simply a scumbag.

  4. Merricat says:

    What an idiot. One, Oprah is a gazillionaire and doesn’t need more–and if she did, she wouldn’t have to swindle people for it. Two, Meghan and Harry are experienced at identifying a grift, thanks to him.

    • Desert Lizard says:

      I wonder if Harry and Meghan’s attorneys have sent him a cease and desist bc he’s been quiet for a while. He’s desperate to be back on camera and, if he can’t go after his daughter and her family, he will go after Oprah and proclaim Harry and Meg to be her “victims”. This man is a horrible person who thinks everyone is just like him.

      • Digital Unicorn says:

        If they did he would have sold it to the Fail claiming they are bullying him.

    • Bettyrose says:

      All of this. Coming for Oprah is never the right strategy.

      • Helen says:

        My favorite part of all of this is all of these ninnies coming for Oprah. Why, of all people, would you go after her?

      • whatWHAT? says:

        yeah, this was my reaction too.

        Try to take on Oprah. go ahead, that’s a “F around and find out” situation right there.

      • iconoclast59 says:

        @whatWHAT? If I had one, I’d post a GIF of Oprah removing her earrings. If Toxic Tom goes after Oprah, the clapback will be swift, precise, and brutal.

  5. Princess Peach says:

    I like Meghan and Harry but the idea that Oprah needs them for anything is laughable.

    • Lilpeppa40 says:

      @Princesspeach ikr! And that’s how you know it’s nonsense. Oprah’s empire has been extremely well established for decades now and her name alone is enough to make something successful. Give me a break with this “Oprah as a user” narrative. It’s incredibly demeaning and racist. I do love Meghan and Harry but they’re just getting started in a sense. I see wonderful things in their future but Oprah doesn’t need them.

      These people are so upset that the Sussexes have heavy hitters in their corner and so the lies just aren’t taking root.

    • MJM says:

      The clout chaser claiming the person he is clout chasing of clout chasing. Classic toxic white male foolery. If ever there was someone on the planet Earth who didn’t need to clout chase it would be Oprah.

    • Cate says:

      Seriously. I mean, I’m sure Oprah went after them for the interview and I’m also sure she wouldn’t have been interested if it wasn’t beneficial to her also (i.e. no way is Oprah going to care to give me airtime to talk about my toxic family because that won’t bring the ratings, lol). Absolutely it was a feather in her cap BUT…Oprah has soooooo many other “feathers” that the relative value of this interview to her was not *that* great. If H&M had decided nah, we prefer not to speak out, I think she would have accepted that and gone on to her next project.

  6. Maria says:

    I hate this disgusting sack of sh*t so much.

  7. Yup, Me says:

    Now we know why his disgusting ass is living by himself in de facto exile, having “heart attacks” with no apparent relationships to support him. He’s a POS.

  8. nicegirl says:

    I have been wondering the same thing, about KP re toxic Tom.

  9. OzJennifer says:

    60 Minutes Australia was (once, a long time ago) a top-class, reputable, hard-hitting investigative program. But it’s been gutter trash for many years now. It’s just embarrassing.

  10. Cecilia says:

    Somebody is being used but it isn’t harry & meghan i can tell you that much

    And Australia has been on the anti-sussex train for a while. Don’t forget that Murdoch is Australian.

    • Lou says:

      Same with NZ. One of our major newspapers, the NZ Herald, reprints Australian Murdoch articles and they’re so petty and relentlessly negative. They had an entire article about how Meghan must be feeling jealous of Kate and Jill Biden. It was embarrassing to see.

  11. Lauren says:

    The Markles, Middletons, Goldsmiths, unemployed ex-tv hosts are seeking an international platform to validate them and there aren’t many English-speaking platforms willing to give them the time of day. The Oprah interview has highlighted what a mess the British media is and has destroyed their international credibility (not saying that it was credible, but not all the world is aware of the tabloid culture in the UK). The US is not willing to lose on the power and influence of the Sussexes (and no one thinks that Fox News is credible) and Canada loves Meghan. What’s left? Australia with a whole lot of deeply rooted institutional racism and casual racism. The problem is the Australian media does not have the hold that the American one does so those ratings that toxic Tom and PM got are the prelude to the others shutting down operations there soon as well.

  12. Anna says:

    He probably like the attention the DM gives him.

    • PrincessK says:

      He gave this latest interview to 60 minutes. He has an agent and they both decided that it was time to make a few bucks out of the birth of the new baby girl Lili.

      This man has been a big problem for Meghan for many many years but she tried for a long time to cover up for him.

  13. Nina says:

    Bitter, bitter, bitter. So now Oprah is playing H&M, but he made a trip from Mexico to beg for an interview. I cannot comprehend having a father like this. This is not new behavior. He acted like this throughout his life. Thank god Meghan is finally free of him.

    • Eurydice says:

      Yeah, who can possibly believe that he actually traveled from Mexico just to leave his phone number and email on Oprah’s gate?

      • Digital Unicorn says:

        Wasn’t he ‘accompanied’ by paps for that? I seem to recall reading that he was papped doing it – the same PR stunt that Scammy pulled at the wrong entrance to KP (where she tried to claim it was the gates of KP but it was the security barriers to the next street along where there are several embassies).

      • what's inside says:

        I was thinking the same thing. Apple did not fall far from the same tree. They do not have any self respect. Tom or Scammy

  14. Amy Bee says:

    If Oprah is taking advantage of Harry and Meghan why would he want to subject himself to the same treatment by begging her to interview him? He’s a POS and probably is still in contact with KP/Jason Knauf.

  15. swirlmamad says:

    LMAO. Oprah isn’t checking for you, you vile annoying gnat. Keep her name out of your mouth, along with your daughter’s, who rightfully never wants anything to do with you ever again. This man is the epitome of scum of the earth.

  16. Sid says:

    This clown could have been living easy and comfortable if he had just kept his mouth shut. It’s pretty obvious now that Meghan put up with a lot from him over the years (see the teen years video sold by that former “friend”) but still worked to maintain the relationship and support him. She even seemed willing to forgive the wedding shenanigans early on. But he just wouldn’t shut up. Clown.

  17. Krista says:

    I would assume jealousy is at play here too – “They interviewed with Oprah? I SHOULD GET AN INTERVIEW TOOOOOOOOOO….after all, I’M THE VICTIM HERE.” Ugh. Feel bad for anyone with family like this.

    • Eurydice says:

      “Wahhhh, I wanna tell my side of the story!” Dude, the story wasn’t about you.

  18. Becks1 says:

    He’s so vile and I feel so bad for Meghan.

    But I couldn’t help but laugh at some of these points. “I’m sure Oprah is giving them money.” . Harry and Oprah have a deal with Apple and I’m sure they both got money from the series. Oprah’s not walking over there with pocket money for them. Or how he needs to share his side of the story – Meghan barely mentioned him in the interview (maybe that’s what hurts?)

    And just the overall idea that Oprah “needs” Harry and Meghan. I feel like that is definitely a talking point from KP – Thomas Markle is American, and he worked in the entertainment industry. He knows damn well how big Oprah is here and how little she needs anyone at this point. That’s a KP line.

    • swirlmamad says:

      I’m sure that’s what’s at the crux of this — in the interview all Meghan had to say was that she lost her father. That relationship is over with and done, dead in the water. He’s acting like the “who, me???” victim and it was all his own doing. He destroyed any chance to have a relationship with his daughter, son-in-law, and grandchildren simply because he’s a greedy slob who can’t keep his yap shut. I can’t imagine Meghan’s pain at being betrayed like this by someone who is supposed to unconditionally love and protect her.

  19. Not watching and no longer reading anything to do with this loser of a human being. Thanks for diving in to the crap end of the sewer for us KAISER, so we don’t have to.

    • BothSidesNow says:

      I couldn’t watch the entire interview. I was able to watch about 4 minutes and that was enough for me. The greatest lie is that he told them that he found out like everyone else, but that’s a lie. Doria called him when she gave birth, or sometime after, so he knew before the world knew. He was lucky that Doria was kind enough to call him, he should have taken that call and appreciated that he was informed.

      Also, I don’t recall him having relationships with his other grandchildren, why is that? We know that the Snakes children have nothing to do with her, but I don’t see him foraging a relationship with the other grandchildren.

      • Emmitt says:

        How do we know Doria called him after the birth? Did Doria make a statement?

      • BnlurNforever says:

        Doria called him after the birth of Archie, I haven’t seen anything suggesting that she called him after the birth of Lilibet.

        I’m pretty sure they’ve all washed their hands of him permanently and he doesn’t care about anything but making bank on his daughter’s suffering. I didn’t watch it, or read the write up, just what Kaiser wrote because I just can’t listen to him and/ or read his words. It is such an unimaginable tragedy what has happened to Meghan and the situation with her father is the most devastating imo. I truly don’t know how she’s borne it, how they’ve come so far given all they’ve been through.

  20. Sofia says:

    He’s a sad pathetic sack of shit.

  21. Haylie says:

    Notice how Thomas can’t get any airtime in the US? He’s a lawsuit waiting to happen.

  22. Lala11_7 says:

    Father Markle is ENSURING that he NEVA LAYS EYES on his Grandbabies!

    Toxic folks need to be kept FAR AWAY to ensure a viable existence!

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      Yes – he knows it too which is why he isn’t shutting up. He knows his relationship with his daughter is over for good and out of petty revenge is going to trash for cash for as long as he is able to.

      Meghan made her feelings known about him at the Oprah interview – she pretty much said she’s done with him for good. He is NEVER getting back in her life.

      He’s a nasty bitter old man – Thomas is William in about 30 years.

  23. L4Frimaire says:

    Heard the ratings were dismally low. Content sells and Thomas Markle has nothing new.

    • aquarius64 says:

      If the ratings tanked in Australia that means the audience is getting sick of the Markles. They will never submit to a US broadcaster because they will be fact checked.

    • PrincessK says:

      Exactly….he has sold all his stories.

  24. SusanRagain says:

    Hangers – on gonna do whatever they can to get $$ from being nasty and sh*t talking to anyone willing to pay them either attention or money.

    The bottom feeders like this will never stop turning any connection into money in their pockets.

    • BothSidesNow says:

      And it seems that the entire Markle Klan have done just that! Not only TT, but Samantha the Snake and her other half brother that has a cannibis company with some reference to Meghan being royal. They all come out of the woodwork to do their bidding for some cash, but I don’t see his other children giving him money, why is that? And who said she owes him anything??? Sure, Meghan helped him out in the past but after what he has done to her, he doesn’t deserve any reconciliation. He broke her heart, not the other way around! And the Snake wrote a book, so she can help him!!

  25. Lucylee says:

    Was this an attempt to discredit Oprah? Sounds like he works for KP because if not, what he says makes no sense. He discounts the harassment and bullying. He seems to think one should compromise their mental health to remain in close proximity to the “royal” family and receive an allowance that could be shared with him.

  26. aquarius64 says:

    TT is mad because Oprah won’t interview and pay him for it. Oprah saw the 4 year slime trail of tabloid revenge porn he left behind and figured out he wants to use her to emotionally blackmail Meghan and bash Harry. So hard pass on the interview and I’m glad Harry, Meghan and Oprah have not responded. As for slagging the Apple docuseries Bad Dad is upset Harry and Meghan are making a lot of money and he is not getting a cut. The Markles have always expected a come up when Harry and Meghan married. As for Lili (and Archie) TT wants bragging rights for having royal grandchildren, never mind he as FIVE adult grandchildren he hasn’t bothered with. He turned over (sold) Meghan’s letter to the Fail; what’s to stop him from taking pictures of the children and sell them to the tabloids? For not wanting to look like a stalker? He’s afraid he would be charged if he showed up to the Sussex home.

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      Yep – Meghan cut him off financially before the wedding and I think that massively triggered him. Material things is all he talks about. He needed the cash and if Meghan wasn’t going to give it to him he was going to use her to get someone else to cough up the dough.

      Makes you wonder what he is doing with the money he has – pension and rent from the apt in Los Feliz. I know he was bankrupt once before.

      • Jan says:

        He filed for bankruptcy 3 or 4 times, the last time was before Meghan left for College, no wonder she said scholarships helped her through college.
        TT had/have a gambling, drug, hooker addiction, that’s from T jr.

      • kelleybelle says:

        @ Jan, last time was when the engagement was announced! For a debt of something like $3500. He figured he had it made because Meg was marrying into royalty. Ha. And yes, he has addictions, and ToD extorts money from him too.

    • Puppdrum says:

      I held my nose and watched it. As for his finances…notice the spiffy new Lexus he was driving? He’s gotten his 30 pieces of silver. Disgusting.

  27. MissMarirose says:

    He’s so pathetic and ignorant about H&M, he’s practically a member of the royal rota now. lol

  28. Poisonella says:

    I really think MM’s Father is helping her enormously! Whenever I read or hear something from him or the nutty stepsister, my admiration for MM grows- to have to deal with that and everything else; she’s a strong lady. Luckily, her Mom has been steadfast in her support and loyalty- so that’s a blessing. I am a big fan of Oprah. Who else would the couple give an interview to? Inside Edition? Today show? It was a good interview too, as usual. The Father is just spouting off sound bites- would prefer he not even be given any forum at all.

  29. equality says:

    He feels sorry for Charles and the Queen but expresses NO concern about Meghan and the fact that she was suicidal but he LOVES her? And he thinks she should have stayed as a “working” royal because it was explained to her? I would think that a father would have been tearful over the fact that he might not have seen his daughter again or his grandchild because they might have both been dead. My big question would be did the media outlet pay him for those talking points or is he in royal family employment? And he’s a pretty good grandpa? Let’s hear from his other grandchildren on that point.

    • swirlmamad says:

      I would be running in there like a lunatic with a flaming pitchfork if that was my child to avenge the way she was tortured and abused. I’m sure it took every ounce of restraint by Doria to just keep quiet. He’s a pathetic excuse for a human being, far less a father.

  30. kelleybelle says:

    We’ve been hearing “his side of the story” – all lies – for three years now. He took money from the media to deliberately stay home and miss the wedding, and lied to his daughter: about colluding with the media AND the heart attack. The fake heart attack. She was done with him three years ago. Fuck him. It appears he is rotting from the inside to the out, just like his vile daughter on wheels.

    • lee says:

      He also agreed to testify against his daughter in Court. His own child knowing what a spectacle it would have been. He has other grandchildren he has never met and yet he wants to meet these two before he dies. My sympathies for all of these celebrities who parents feel their children owe them something for giving birth to them. Its just so sad. Toxic celebrity parents. You can write a book.

  31. Merricat says:

    If an American Blow Hard blows hard in Australia, does it make a sound? Excuse me, did someone say something?

  32. Mel says:

    They didn’t even utter his name during their interview, so there’s no story to give his side to. Is he aware that OWN has been a successful network for years and Oprah doesn’t need Harry and Megan for anything?

    • Haylie says:

      And that the interview didn’t even air on OWN? It aired on CBS, a network ratings powerhouse.

  33. LMR says:

    The Dad From Hell strikes again. When 60Min Australia was promoting this interview last week with that “dirty laundry” phrase, I was sure said dirty laundry would be Tom exposing the KP/Jason Knauf roles in his previous public attempts to humiliate his daughter. But the interview was just a regurgitation of Tom’s previous material.

    I get satisfaction knowing that Megan will get more money from her DM lawsuit over publishing the letter than he received in payment from the DM for the letters in the first place. I hope it keeps him awake at night.

    Who here thinks the Sussexes have some sort of restraining order preventing Thomas Markle from coming near them? There was a lot of explaining when he dropped off that note at Oprah’s gate that he wasn’t there to see M&H.

  34. OzJennifer says:

    I just checked the ratings. 480,000 views, Australia-wide, so not exactly a major TV moment. In fact, the ratings were down from 588,000 the week before. Compare this to 2,250,000 views of the Oprah interview. I think we know where the interest lies, and it isn’t in Toxic Tom.

  35. sunny says:

    So let me get this straight, this horrible human(and possibly the palace’s strategy is *check notes* blame a famous black person. Well, here we are right on time.

  36. Lara says:

    What’s up with you Australians and your weird tabloid version of 60 Minites?

    • ElleV says:

      yikes, what’s with the disdainful “you people” vibes?

      I can get being like “what’s with this tabloid version of 60 minutes?” but why add xenophobia to the mix?

      also, where do you live that has a *serious* 60 minutes show in this, the year of our lord 2021?

    • HeatherC says:

      The same thing that’s up with Americans and their weird Fox News Network (I’m American). Doesn’t mean we’re ALL gutter snorting lunatics but enough are to support a show/network

      But only a small showing of the gutter snorting lunatics in Australia showed up for this “interview” (more like mad revenge porn raging) so there’s that.

  37. incognito08 says:

    Did Toxic Tom put forth the same effort with seeing his remaining grandchildren? If I am not mistaken, isn’t he estranged from them too? Truth be told, we already know the answer because dollar signs and attention aren’t attached to his remaining grands.

  38. Aussie says:

    So I remember my ma telling me in the nineties, due to Murdoch ties deep in both countries and the fact that a lot of aussies work in the uk media – a lot of British scoops that can’t be published due being scared of being sued, agreement with the royals or even not wanting to appear grubby can be handed to Australian publications to unleash. The British press then get to comment on it.

    It’s my believe why new idea in Australia published photos of Harry in the army too.

    Specifically sixty minutes is a often grubby program that will pay for comments

    The Aussie sky news is a racist right wing but show that is increasingly targeting you tube video views from overseas markets for revenue and the prestige of notice from other countries

    • ElleV says:

      This is the true biz – Murdoch has had the monopoly on news in Australia for waaaaay too long

  39. Jan says:

    Tom is bitter that he is not getting any of the Netflix, Spotify, Apple, Oprah and Bench cash. He knows Oprah is a billionaire, why would she need to use them, the using was mutual.
    Oh! did you miss the part about the big house for only four people, Tom is spitting fire with his jealousy.
    Going back to old nonsense That men in his family don’t live past 80, and Meghan promised to take care of him in his old age, and he will turning 77 next month, he was dying for the last 4 years, why not visit The Netherlands and get help, or Oregon.
    Samantha did say Harry would be lucky if he had room in the bed with Doria and Meghan in it, since them it’s two kids and two dogs, the markles are on the outside without a chance of getting in.
    Calling Harry weak, what a joke, Harry is more of a man than Tom will ever be. He knew Meghan normally caved and send him money, this was the first time the tap was turned off for months, now years, and he is blaming Harry.
    Tom, said when he received that letter from Meghan, he knew it was over, he said she was tough just like Doria, this maybe the only truth that came out of his mouth.

    • Nina says:

      Visit the Netherlands or Oregon, BAWHAHAHA. And how is he going to play the victim if he partakes of their services?
      Taking care of him in his old age, alluding to living with them by mentioning their big house. This man needs to stop. He is an effing disgrace.
      My grandmother is two years older than him and refuses to give up her independence even though my mom and her siblings are all begging her to at least consider moving in with one of them.

  40. Lady Digby says:

    TM is the only person in the entire world NOT to understand what that 5 page letter from his daughter meant about talking trash about her in paid interviews if he is telling the true about being confused about their estrangement. He claims that he needs an explanation to put things right?
    Yes he has to lie because he has to justify his ongoing media campaign against his own daughter with the notion that he is just reaching out to her!In his interview he claims it was just about the staged photo s but she forgave him for that and still wanted him at the wedding.His response to their generosity was to switch off his phone and speak to TMZ instead! Since then he has given regular interviews, given private letter to tabloid and all too willing to give evidence against her in court.To any reasonable person that is not one dumb mistake just endless hurtful betrayal when a father should protect and nurture.

  41. Courtney B says:

    Does he realize he doesn’t need to get his side out there vis a vis the Oprah interview? They didn’t mention him. That must really burn. He could’ve dined out so more on that.

  42. Barbie1 says:

    He needs a shrink to diagnose his personality disorder. Always crying, pretending to be a victim. Please shut the f up.

    Toxic Tom is the #1 reason I have zero doubt Meghan legally changed her last name to Windsor like Harry’s. Or, I suppose it’s Mountbatten-Windsor, since we know that’s what Archie’s is, and I imagine Lili’s as well.

    Even if her professional name had been Markle for years, after everything her father and sister put her through, no way in hell did she keep that bind.

    Says the guy who got played because he sucks so badly that his own daughter knew he would sell her personal letter to a tabloid.

  45. Plums says:

    no comment on this pathetic piece of shit other than to say I respect that the American media has stayed away from giving this vile abuser airtime.

    Best comment on Twitter about his slurs to Oprah:

  47. Mina_Esq says:

    Lol H and M were still toddlers when Oprah became the queen of daytime TV. She built a billion dollar empire before H & M had even heard of one another. But please, tell me how she needs to use H & M for…i guess more money and fame? This man is trash.

  48. Emmitt says:

    “I think Oprah Winfrey is playing Harry and Meghan,” said Markle, who has not spoken to his daughter in three years. “I think she’s using them to build her network and her new shows, and I think she’s taking advantage of a very weakened man and getting him to say things that you just shouldn’t be saying on television. It seems to me that she’s pushing it to get more and more out of it, and Apple stock is going up,”

    TRANSLATION: Harry is a weak simp who’s being controlled by Oprah/Meghan to say bad things about his family.

    “When asked if he has watched The Me You Can’t See, Markle said he has seen “some of it” and believes “it’s a set-up.” “I think she’s patting herself on the back and making a lot of money on this,” he said. “I’m sure she gives Harry money and Meghan money, but I don’t think it compensates for what they’re doing.”

    TRANSLATION: BRF thinks the only way Harry & Meghan would say such bad things about them is if they were getting paid. Like me.

    “When asked if he has attempted to speak with his daughter, Markle claimed he was “waiting for them to get to me” after trying to reach them early on but “never getting through.”

    TRANSLATION: I tried to get to Meghan so we could take pictures and I could make this money but then she changed her number and I haven’t been able to get hold of her since.

    “I said, ‘give me a chance to tell my story,’” Markle explained. “I said it’s not fair to tell this story without hearing my story. I’ve [gotten] no response.”

    TRANSLATION: If Oprah is paying Harry & Meghan I want to get paid too but Oprah is blocking my bag and it’s not fair.

    ” Markle went on to say that he’s “not attacking Oprah” but thinks Harry is “being put in a position where he’s saying things he’ll never be able to take back. That’s a horrible thing.”

    TRANSLATION: Meghan & Oprah are controlling Harry and ruining my bag. If Harry cuts himself off from the royals and stays with my daughter, then I can’t do no interviews saying “I told you so” and “Meghan can come back to papa”. I had the next 3 years of interviews planned out and now it’s ruined. But that’s cool because I’m gonna give some new interviews trashing my piece of crap daughter and I’m gonna make this money off of her whether she helps me or not.

    It is annoying that none of his interviewers read Summary Judgement on his antics before and after the wedding and challenge his victimhood on the actual facts presented in court documents. They forgave him for the staged shots and still wanted him at their wedding. The attention of the world is focused on them and he decides to give regular updates to TMZ while ghosting his daughter who does not know whether he is I’ll in hospital or not. He sends them a brutal text stating “It’s a shame I didn’t die so you could pretend to care!” Harry asks him to confirm the text came from him as he can’t understand his response when they are desperate to know what the true situation is and if they can help.Both constantly call him but he keeps his phone off.
    The court case Summary Judgement is a long read but it laid bare what happened between the week of the wedding up to idiot boy’s decision to let a tabloid have the private letter.TM is too stupid to realise that he would have been subject to rigorous cross examination in the witness box had that case gone to court. He was imaging another cosy chat about his wrongs and a documentary about him behind the scenes. He is a liar who lacks empathy for others and he would have been cruelly exposed at the High Court.
    Yes I am sure he will appear on Piers Morgan Life Stories and maybe they’ll both get lapped in front of KP.I loved TM suggesting that he’d love to have a beer with Prince Charles because they have so much in common with ingrate offspring! There is none so blind as those that can’t see !

  50. Izzy says:

    I mean, Tom would know all about getting played.

  51. Iris says:

    We live in a society… where Tom is actualy on the BRF’s payroll ! Not through his daughter mind you, but because the firm is using him to blast HER.

    Three bankruptcies within a 25 year period. To say Bad Dad is lousy with money is an understatement. He allegedly won the CA lottery with a $750,000 prize and blew all that was left after taxes. (You are required to report lottery winnings to the IRS and possibly for the state, but that depends if that was required then.) It begs the question how TT was able to pay 100% of four years of Northwestern as he and the Other Daughter claimed (and the university hasn’t backed up)? Bankruptcy would make it difficult to apply for a loan. And when you see the interviews he and Scammy do and look at the interiors of their homes. For four years of being trolls for hire for the tabloids (and selling childhood pictures) they have nothing to show for it, like an upgrade in standard of living. TOD’s book has to be a real bomb because she still looks like she shops at thrift stores for clothes. It has to kill Sam that Meghan can still live in luxury despite the hurt. Money can’t fix the hurt of course but living well and keeping out the toxicity is the best revenge. The Markles have to contend to with tabloid table scraps to get by, the price you pay for choosing to be a useful idiot .

    • kelleybelle says:

      What the Markles are too stupid to realize is that had NW been privately paid for, as they claim, Meghan wouldn’t have even qualified for the work/study program grant. You have to apply AND qualify. And she qualified. There is no way Sr. paid for NW and no way he COULD have, and their tuition is nowhere near what Scam says it is. Sr. didn’t even own the house in Woodland hills. He rented. He also spent a shit-tonne of money on coke, booze and teen hookers on the other side of the world, all while married. Yeah, a read stand-up guy who deserves respect, according to his malignant other daughter. Meghan paid his tax bills more than once and also for his mother’s stay in a nursing home. Not her son, but the bi-racial daughter, the ATM of the Markle family. Ungrateful brat, huh? Tom didn’t even pay the bills for his own mother?

  53. MsIam says:

    Toxic was coached to say this. Its the new line they are pushing, about Harry being “mentally unwell” or mentally weak. Tina Brown was on with Gayle King the other day after the baby was born and Tina started in with that crap. Saying ” the queen is worried about Prince Harry’s mental health”. Gayle shut her down with the quickness, lol. Anybody with eyes can see that Harry is happy, meanwhile look at Keen who is withering away before our eyes despite what her stans say and Cain who looks like he’s either bored or mad all the time. If the queen is worried about anyone’s mental health it should be those two.

    • Tessa says:

      I did not like Tina Brown’s book about Diana. She claimed to be Diana’s “friend” based on one lunch they had. She was not nice to Diana in the book now she’s going after Harry.

  54. Curious says:

    i think Meghan always had issues with him. maybe she saw how his 2 oldest children treated her mother. but at the time she didn’t understand it . as she got older she knew what was going on. she is like other children /teens that always spoke about the positive things and don’t write or talk about the negative things about her father. so she wrote positive things about her dad,cause at the time he was nice to her. she just blocked out the negative… i guess a lot changed when Meghan was dating her first husband. she was living with him before they got married. maybe he just met her family a few times. cause he knew how toxic they are . Meghan didn’t see her father much. she was living in Canada. she did call him him from time to time. .her father seem to want some credit for some emotional strong bond he had with Meghan, but Meghan was 23 or 24 when she was dating her 1st husband.

  55. ElleE says:

    Australia is suffering from some roll back of it libel and/or defamation laws. If I cared more, I’d google it for you guys-this story broke during the last election cycle: the complaint being that Murdoch’s publications and news agencies are making crap up without any penalties and the right wing is off the chain.

    Stories like white men complaining that their success is being unfairly impeded by manipulative black womenfolk (is that what he is saying???) are red meat for Australia 60 mins. Feel bad for the viewing public there.

  56. Tessa says:

    Those who dislike Meghan and Harry on the blogs, praise her awful father. It is so revolting.

  57. Trix says:

    Honestly. Oprah would never do it. But it would also be hysterical to watch her rip Tom to shreds. And he’s begging her to do it. He actually deserves an Oprah interview, but not for the reasons he thinks.

  58. Christy says:

    Must be such a mind f&$k to have a father like that. Wow. Hope she keeps staying out of his sad life. Also Oprah have laying someone? Nooo way- never.

  59. aquarius64 says:

    The BM is turning on Bad Dad?

    Word must be getting around in tabloid world that Toxic Tom’s interview was a ratings flop which maybe a loss in revenue . TT may finally be on his way down

  60. Well Wisher says:

    He is still on contract, but safer to report about ‘manufactured news’ in the UK than actually make/report so it was outsourced in this particular case to Australia.
