Does Howie Mandel want an invite to Meghan Markle’s upcoming wedding because he helped launch her career when she was hired as a briefcase model on “Deal or No Deal”? That’s the claim in one of the tabloids. Gossip Cop, however, can exclusively set the record straight.

Markle appeared on Mandel’s former game show from 2006 to 2007, prior to her starring role on “Suits,” and now the National Enquirer claims the TV personality expects an invite to her and Prince Harry’s 2018 nuptials. A so-called “source” tells the magazine, “It would be nice if Meghan invited him. Howie gave her career a big boost, and he’s very proud of all the young ladies from the show. He’s been reminding everyone who will listen that he found her first.”

Of course, there were dozens of briefcase girls during the four-year run of “Deal or No Deal,” and it’s highly unlikely that Mandel expects invites to all of their intimate celebrations because they appeared on his show. Despite the outlet’s story being completely absurd, Gossip Cop still checked in with a rep for the “America’s Got Talent” judge, who confirms that the report is completely “made-up.” It should be noted, Chrissy Teigen also appeared as a “Deal or No Deal” model, and Mandel never clamored for an invite to her wedding to John Legend.

Also, the tabloids have a habit of concocting bogus stories surrounding the TV personality and his colleagues, but they usually involve fake feuds. Gossip Cop previously busted the Enquirer for falsely claiming that Mandel was battling with Howard Stern behind-the-scenes of “AGT” back when the radio host was on the competition show. We also called out the outlet’s sister publication, OK!, for making up a nonexistent fight between Mandel and Simon Cowell on the set of the reality series. This latest article focusing on his relationship with Markle is equally baseless.
