Shahs Of Sunset Star Nema Vand Says Meghan Markle Toyed With His Heart In High School

Even though almost no one seemed to know who Meghan Markle was before she got with Prince Harry, but, now, people are coming out of the woodwork, sharing their associations with her. It’s not just her paparazzi-calling dad or her hating half-sister.

But, at least this time the comments are actually pretty nice. It turns out that Shahs of Sunset star Nema Vand used to hang out with Meghan when they were teens in California.

Page Six reported that Nema discussed this during an episode of the Reality Life with Kate Casey” podcast. He explained, “I went to an all-boys high school, and one of our sister schools was Meghan Markle’s. I grew up with her. We were friends for a long time. She was a year older than me. Meghan was amazing, a woman among girls. Everyone was in love with her. She was sweet, and very kind.”

The praise continued when he said, “We admired her. She was a good friend.”

But it wasn’t all compliments. Nema spilled a bit of tea. He began, “She knew what she was doing. She toyed with our hearts masterfully. We were at a party one time and she sat on my lap. She got nose to nose with me. For a 16-year-old guy, that is an emotional moment. She said to me in Farsi, ‘You are so beautiful.’ I asked her, ‘How do you know Farsi?’ She said, ‘I learned it for you.’ Then she walked away.”

Nema added, “I like to hope Meghan Markle is watching Shahs of Sunset, and I like to hope she tells that almost-make-out story as authentically as I do.” I doubt she’s telling that story, but I would love to know if she watches reality TV.

While Nema had mostly kind things to say about the former senior member of the Royal Family, his one friend still has beef with the Suits alum. He remarked, “And by the way, if Meghan Markle is listening, I am going to say this one time. Meghan, you really upset our friend Gabe.”

Nema also shared a screenshot of the Page Six article on his Instagram page and wrote, “And my 16 year old heart has never been the same. OK but on the real, I rarely speak about MM, but she was an incredibly sweet and kindhearted friend even waaaayyy back in HS. Nice to absolutely everyone when she didn’t have to be, which is not always the case for teens. Hopefully she’ll enjoy this innocent trip down memory lane.”

I doubt this would ever happen, but I really hope Meghan did listen to that podcast. Imagine if she addressed this.
