Meghan Markle Was Forced To Stuff Her Bra For 'Deal Or No Deal'

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Ever since Meghan Markle got engaged to Prince Harry, a slew of stories have come out about her past.

Now, a former co-model has told The Sun in England that while Markle worked as model on the American TV game show Deal or No Deal, producers forced her to stuff her bra!

Tameka Jacobs, 38, said, all models, including Markle, stuffed their bras and would "crack up" about how much foam was inside them.

Before filming, the models, whose prize briefcases contained up to $1 million dollars, would also use tape to hold their breasts in place while not wearing bras.

Jacobs said Markle worked at Deal or No Deal as a "pit-stop" on her way to serious acting.

"Meghan's aspirations were to win an Oscar or be on Broadway, so if you're in a mini dress, high heels, with your boobs taped together and pushed up when what you want to do is serious acting, then it's tough," Jacobs recalled about the future royal fiancée, now 36, on the Deal set more than a decade ago.

Also, according to Jacobs, Markle and the other gals had to undergo an embarrassing ritual as producers "inspected" them every day to make sure they weren't putting on weight while working as briefcase babes on the show hosted by Howie Mandel.

A show bigwig would stand on a chair and line up the ladies for inspection, according to Jacobs.

The former co-worker said Markle had to audition in a swimsuit to get the job on the game show, which ran from 2005 to 2009 on NBC. Markle worked on the show in 2006.

Jacobs recalled, "Meghan never seemed self-conscious. She never came off as insecure or shy, although she wasn't one of the girls who would parade around in her underwear. She was definitely one of the quiet ones."

Although the gals were expected to watch their weight, Markle would eat pizza behind the scenes, Jacobs revealed.

In 2011, Markle finally got her big acting break, being chosen for the role of Rachel Zane on Suits—and now, she's won the biggest role of all, as Prince Harry's wife to be!
