Kate Middleton Sister Won’t Crack America
Posted by Adam
PIPPA Middleton is abandoning her plans for a career in America — to avoid embarrassing sister Kate Middleton.
The 29-year-old brunette has received several interview offers on American talk shows but she has turned them down due to concerns she may create further unwanted publicity for Kate, who’s married to Prince William.
“Pippa has been besieged with offers from the US media offering a raft of opportunities — like being a special correspondent on shows like Entertainment Tonight, as well as interviews with Oprah Winfrey and others,” a source said.
Pippa –- who shot to fame when she was maid of honor at Kate’s wedding — has been forced to cancel plans to promote her new party planning book, Celebrate, in the US out of respect for her sister.
“If Pippa is quizzed about Kate’s topless pictures, whatever answer she gives will generate more news and upset Wills and RKate,” said the source.
“Viking [her publisher] was hoping that there would be a huge swell of publicity for this book which would lead to sales. Nobody has really ever heard Pippa speak before and US audiences are fascinated by her.
“This could have launched a new lucrative career here.”
