Oprah Winfrey And Barbara Walters Are Fighting Over Pippa Middleton
Pippa Middleton and her behind might be the toast of the interweb (and she’s been photographed quite frequently in the past few weeks-the Berkshire beauty was spotted in the South Kensington neighborhood of London today), but we’re less inclined to believe this story that the National Enquirer broke.
The checkout tabloid claims that the younger sister to HRH Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge is in high demand on the talk show circuit. Oprah Winfrey and Barbara Walters are fighting over Middleton, as both want her for certain projects. An insider told the Enquirer, “Years ago, when Kate broke up with PRINCE WILLIAM briefly, Barbara tried to hire her as a ‘View’ co-host – but now she thinks Pippa’s so sassy, young and gorgeous, she’d be a fantastic fit. Ratings would be amazing!”
Winfrey’s hoping to woo Middleton to the OWN network: “O knows it would be a great ratings coup because Pippa’s a star on fire – and Americans are so obsessed with the royals!”
If you ask me, neither deal will happen. Middleton knows she has to watch her step because of her connections to the British monarchy. Any sort of exposure, even if it’s on OWN, would definitely be considered tacky. And appearing on American TV? Come on, now!
