Samantha Markle: Meghan's Shady Sister Lands TLC Special

by at .

The whole world is in love with the story of Meghan Markle, the self-made actress whose fairytale romance is soon to make her a member of the royal family.

Well, perhaps we should say almost the whole world loves the saga of MegMar...

Hey, Meghan Markle!

Meghan has a half-sister named Samantha Grant, who has apparently decided to devote herself to a career in professional shade-throwing.

Having re-branded herself as Samantha Markle, Meg's semi-sibling is attempting to make a name for herself by exposing the former Suits actress' checkered past.

It's a job that would no doubt be much easier if Meghan actually had a checkered past.

Meghan and Samantha were born 16 years apart, and they haven't seen each other since 2008, which means Meghan's doorman probably knows more about her life than Samantha does.

But that's not stopping Ms. Grant Markle from cashing in on her sister's rise to the A-list.

Meghan and Harry

TLC has announced a new special cornily titled When Harry Met Meghan: A Royal Engagement, which will apparently serve as a soapbox for Samantha.

"The tabloids wanted to create this African-American, rags-to-riches Cinderella, if you will, which is so far from reality, you know," Sam says in a preview.

So ... is Samantha really contesting the fact that Meghan is African-American?

Guess we'll have to watch the special to find out!

You got us again, TLC!

Meghan Markle in Britain

This is far from the first time that Samantha has endeavored to make a buck by publicly slamming Meghan.

Back in April, Samantha landed a deal to write a tell-all about Meghan entitled--wait for it--The Diary of Princess Pushy's Sister.

While promoting the book, Samantha accused Meghan of turning her back on their relationship simply because Samantha is wheelchair-bound with MS:

"[Meghan] ignores a sister in a wheelchair because it is an embarrassment to her," Samantha told UK tabloid the Sun.

She added, "I didn’t feel a separation from [Meghan] until I was in the wheelchair."

But don't worry, Samantha swears she has nothing but nice things to say about the sister who dropped her due to a physical disability:

Officially Engaged!

"Everyone assumes my book is a slamming tell all, which it is not, now it can be egg in their faces and everyone can say what they think, my book is not a slam piece and it is important historically," she recently told Us Weekly.

Well, Sam, we can't help but think that assumption has something to do with the fact that you call her "Princess Pushy" right in the awful title (which, by the way, makes the book sound more like a Judy Bloom novel than a document of historic importance).

Oh, and then there's the fact that you accused Meghan of abandoning you because your wheelchair clashed with her outfit or whatever.

We're sure the book is a regular hagiography, and the wedding invitation is in the mail!
