Meghan Markle will not be joining The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast anytime soon and recently shared why she’s staying away from reality tv.

Speaking with guest of the show Andy Cohen, on the Tuesday (Nov. 29) episode of her podcast Archetypes, the Duchess of Sussex responded to Housewives fans' past comments that she would be a good addition to the RHOBH cast after moving to Montecito, Calif.

“You mean really that this is my audition for Real Housewives of Montecito? Is this the moment?” she asked Cohen, laughing.

Cohen responded, “You don’t have to audition. We’ll build the show around you. How about that?”

In other Meghan Markle news, the official teaser for her and her husband Prince Harry’s Netflix docuseries “Harry & Meghan” was released on Thursday (Dec. 1).

“Why did you want to make this documentary?” the couple is asked in the trailer, followed by a series of photos of the couple in both public and private moments.

“No one sees what’s happening behind closed doors,” Prince Harry is heard saying. “I had to do everything I could to protect my family.”

Elsewhere in the trailer, Meghan says, “When the stakes are this high, doesn’t it make more sense to hear our story from us?”
