Howie Mandel said in May he didn't recall Meghan Markle on Deal or No Deal, but now he remembers her acting "slightly duchessy"
Mandel told E! News during the week before Markle's wedding to Prince Harry that "to be honest, I don't even remember her. I don't. I don't. I'd like to say I do and if she's watching, and she's not right?" Mandel then looked into the camera and said: "I don't remember you. I don't remember you. I've seen a lot of pictures and I don't…" Yet while speaking today at the TV press tour, Mandel spoke about Markle's brief stint as a Deal or No Deal briefcase model as if he clearly remembered her. "She was slightly duchessy," Mandel said, adding: “That speaks to who we have now and who we had then. Not everybody will have an opportunity to meet royalty, but these are all accomplished people that have something substantial. They’re not just standing there holding a case — they have careers, they have hobbies, they have families, they’re entrepreneurial."
