Duchess Catherine's sister Pippa Middleton has given exactly no interviews since the Royal Wedding in April. Are Barbara Walters and Oprah angling to change that?
British tabloids are reporting that Walters and Oprah are engaged in a bidding war to book the 28-year-old party planner for a TV special - potentially for big bucks.
Walters, 82, denied on The View Monday. "It's not true," the journalist said.
"ABC News does not pay for interviews. I have no idea what Oprah does, but ABC does not pay. She's not a news program, so maybe they have a different policy."
That doesn't mean Walters wouldn't be up for interviewing Pippa Middleton, who was one of her most fascinating people of 2011, as unveiled in late December.
"To make it clear: Would I like to do the interview? Yes, I would like to I think she's a charming, beautiful girl," Walters said. "Will we pay to do the interview? No."
They could make a major donation to a charity of Kate Middleton's choice in exchange for an interview, though. That's not technically paying. Loopholes, people.
