She is rumored to be the godmother of sister Kate's royal baby, but soon, Pippa Middleton may have a whole NEW role to fill:
Special royal correspondent to The Today Show!
According to new reports, the Duchess of Cambridge's younger sister has entered negotiations with NBC's morning show, which would apparently pay her $600,000 for up to 20 appearances a year!
If all goes as planned, the party planner would most likely cover events like the Chelsea Flower Show and the public opening of Buckingham Palace!
As a source explains:
"NBC senior figures will bill this job to Pippa as a special correspondent in 2013. They see her appeal as huge, as she is linked to the Royal Family, and because of her popularity following the wedding when pictures of her went worldwide. A couple of offers are on the table, but they would like her to make as many as 20 appearances reporting on Royal-themed events like the Chelsea Flower Show, the opening of Buckingham Palace and Opera House nights. She will not focus on intimate Royal matters like Wills and Kate's move to London, Harry's return from war and the family Christmas. The offer gives Pippa the chance to have editorial input on what she says, and, as most of this work would be pre-recorded, she would not be caught out."
Hey! Can't deny it sounds like a pretty solid deal!
Especially considering they wouldn't force her to dig into her family's personal lives!
We don't know about you, but we'd be MORE than a little thrilled with some added Pippa to our television screens!
And we bet NBC would be, too, considering The Today Show's less-than-stellar ratings as of late!
How about U?? Do U think Pippa would be a good fit for Today??
