Chopra shifts focus in ‘Wendy’ interview

Who someone’s dating should never outshine the things they’ve achieved — that’s what Priyanka Chopra implied in an interview on The Wendy Williams Show this week.

According to Marie Clairethe Quantico and Baywatch star used her time on Williams’ purple couch to remind the morning talk show host that dating someone doesn’t overshadow their accomplishments, even when that person is dating a royal. When Williams asked Chopra about friend Meghan Markle (who is dating Prince Harry), Williams referred to Markle as “Prince Harry’s girlfriend,” says Marie Claire. 

Chopra responded to the reference by reciting her friend’s resume: “Also Meghan Markle, actress, Suits, her achievements,” she said.

Here’s to maintaining an identity beyond a relationship!
