Just a Reminder, That Chrissy Teigen and Meghan Markle Both Started on ‘Deal or No Deal’
If there’s one thing we love about Meghan Markle, it’s her how relatable she is compared to other Royal bride-to-be’s —
of course, it’s all relative considering the fact that she’s still a famous actor, but still. She’s climbed the acting totem pole, pursuing many odd jobs in her quest for Hollywood domination, one of which being a Deal or No Deal suitcase holder back in 2006. And it gets better, she was also joined by fellow relatable-for-a-famous-celebrity icon, Chrissy Teigen.
Chrissy talked about the time she worked with Meghan in an interview with Ellen DeGeneres on Monday, Feb. 19. Starring in eight episodes from 2007 to 2008, versus Meghan’s 34 episodes from 2006-2007. Chrissy revealed that she jokes with her famous hubby John Legend, “That could be me. I could be Princess Harry.”
It’s not the only time they worked together! They reunited in 2014 to compete in DirecTV’s Beach Bowl, a celebrity flag football game shown over the Super Bowl weekend.
In our minds, they’re best of friends, spending weekends bonding over their partners and sexism in Hollywood —in reality, they’re probably just work colleagues who awkwardly nod at each other across the room, but we can dream.
In the same interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Chrissy also revealed her son will be born in June, although she has yet to decide on a name. She said, “Boy names are really tough. I don’t even think he’ll have a middle name because we can’t even think of a first name.”
While she is a fan of Richard Legend, so he will be nicknamed “Dick Legend”, Ellen warned her against that name. John has also vetoed John Junior in one of the humblest brags ever that he wouldn’t want his child to feel he had to live up to his name. In typical Chrissy fashion, this prompted her to call her husband “a jerk.”
