pippa middleton gi Is Pippa Middleton the next Oprah?The royal sis-in-law is reportedly in talks for her own Oprah Winfrey-style talk show. According to the National Enquirer (we know) and InTouch (yes, yes — we know!) Middleton is being courted by both Oprah Winfrey’s production company and “View” doyenne Barbara Walters.

Walters, who reportedly once tried to snag Catherine (aka Kate) as a “View” co-host, has apparently moved on to Pippa — who is quickly moving out of the second string and becoming a name in her own right.

We’re going to go ahead and guess that the royal family would frown on so close a relative engaging in such a frivolous pursuit. Hosting a talk show would clearly be almost as gauche as wearing a hat like this to the wedding of the century.
