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.

Pippa Middleton is the master ofparty planning. That is her job, after all.

So what are her tips for planning a Valentine's Day to remember?

On her fam's Party Times website, she advises, "Throw a Valentine-themed party for a few friends. Hang some heart decorations around the room for extra kitsch-factor and drink sparkling wine or specially mixed Valentine’s cocktails."

Another fun-sounding suggestion: "How about dipping marshmallows and fruit skewers of banana, grapes and strawberries into a molten chocolate fountain. Everyone can join in – just make sure you have napkins at the ready as things may get messy!"

"Create a few rhyming clues for a treasure hunt around the house to unearth ... little Valentine's gifts that Cupid has lovingly hidden for family members."

No word if Pippa Middleton will be partaking with any lucky fellas.

Currently vacationing in Mustique with sister Kate Middleton, Pip is single after splitting from her boyfriend of more than a year, Alex Loudon, late last year.

Despite reports that Prince William and Kate Middleton's New Year's plans involved spending time at his father's sprawling Scotland, estate, they chose a more low-key locale.

A tent pitched in the back garden of the Middleton family's yard!

According to the U.K.'s Mail on Sunday, Pippa Middleton, who along with her parents is in the party-planning business, played host to the (relatively) small soiree.

The Middleton girls know how to dress - and party!

The stylish sister has expensive taste: The tent alone cost nearly $5,000 (or 3,000 in British pounds) to set up behind their home in Berkshire, England.

Described by an onlooker as a "canvas palace," the tent enclosed a dance floor and seating for more than 100 party-goers ready to ring in 2012.

"[Kate Middleton] looked full of the joys of the season," a party-goer said of 2011's royal bride, 29, who laughed and joked with her husband, also 29.

The celebration in her hometown with Pippa, 27, comes nearly a week after the Duchess' first Christmas as a royal in Sandringham, Norfolk.

NOTE: The answer to the question posed on the image below is not her dress.

For whatever reason, according to Life & Style, men just sprint away from Pippa Middleton, and the younger sister of Duchess Catherine wonders why!

After attending her seventh wedding of the year this month, the 28-year-old is starting to wonder if she'll ever be the one standing at the altar, sources say.

"She's scared she'll never find someone who'll accept her life," a friend says.

"[Pippa Middleton] is happy for Kate and for her university friends who are getting hitched, but she's starting to wonder if she'll ever find her Prince Charming."

In November, after growing increasingly uncomfortable with her fame, longtime boyfriend Alex Loudon called it quits with Pippa for the second time this year.

Ever since the split, according to the friend, Pippa has been deeply worried that she has become undateble, now that she's the sister-in-law of Prince William.

"The men Pippa knows are all majorly turned off by the circus surrounding her," an insider reveals, with some publications dubbing it the "Pippa Problem."

Call us crazy, but we imagine there are plenty of guys who would love to have a Pippa problem on their hands. The issue is that she's quasi-famous? Deal.

Pippa Middleton will be joining the British Royal Family for the holidays. You know what that means ... let the rumors of her hooking up with Prince Harry begin!

For the first time in their lives, Pippa and Kate Middleton will be spending Christmas away from their parents. For newly-married Kate, that was almost a given.

Pippa was invited to spend the holidays with the royals not because she's a major cutie (even though she is) but so her sister could also have family around.

Prince Harry will also be present, of course, so ...

On the day after Christmas, Boxing Day, Pippa and Kate will join William, Harry and the rest of the royals for the family's annual pheasant shoot in the country.

This is a pretty big deal as, traditionally, this is reserved only for members of the royal family and their significant others. But this is one gorgeous exception.

Pippa's presence is via the urging of William, who wants to make Kate's first holiday with her in-laws more comfortable. Not that Prince Harry's complaining.

Yes, we know nothing's going on with the two, but they're both single now, and she's going to be seeing the younger prince in hunting attire. Game over.

Those two are definitely going to hook up. Or at least they should. Right?

With the days remaining in 2011 becoming fewer every 24 hours, it's time to raise a glass to the year that was - and the stars that made the past 12 months so great.

At THG, we're doing that by counting down the 10 most newsworthy celebrities of 2011. First, there was the arresting centerfold Lindsay Lohan at #10. What a mess!

Jennifer Lopez came in at #9, Selena Gomez at #8 and a batch of hilarious viral video stars at#7 spot Katy Perry and Justin Bieber were #6 and #5, respectively.

Now, at #4, we salute ... the new generation of the British Royal Family!

Official Royal Wedding Portrait

Approximately a billion people watched Prince William marry Kate Middleton April 29. A billion. More than 36 million watched in the U.S., where they don't even live. 72 million streamed the Royal Wedding live on just YouTube!

It was a big deal is what we're saying.

In these troubled times mired by financial duress, armed conflict, natural disasters and a growing sense of uncertainty, the world looked to the matrimony of two wonderful young people - true class acts - as a respite from its daily struggles.

That's a lot of weight on William and Kate's shoulders, but they handled it as well as any 29-year-olds could. Their exchange of vows was as celebrated as any in history.

Pippa Middleton was named one of the Most Fascinating People of the Year by Barbara Walters, although the segment about Kate Middleton's sister on Wednesday's special basically acknowledged there is no real reason why.

While no one can dispute Steve Jobs as the Most Fascinating, the rest of Babs' list is a total ratings shill. We love Pip, but there's nary a word from her in this whole piece, and it just makes her sound useless, whereas she's probably a very nice girl.

You'd do just as well browsing our gallery of Pippa Middleton photos, because that's pretty much all this is. But if you must watch Walters' "profile," here it is:

Owner of perhaps the world's most famous cleavage, Katy Perry portrayed the owner of the world's most famous backsides last night in Pippa Middleton.

The #1 pop hit maker hosted NBC's Saturday Night Live, playing herself, Christina Aguilera, a Japanese wannabe and Kate Middleton's sister in various sketches.

In a nod to the many Kate Middleton pregnancy rumors of late, the Queen (played by Fred Armisen) demanded Prince William's wife get knocked up ASAP.

Enter the faux Pippa Middleton, who went toe-to-toe with Her Majesty in a ridiculous cockney accent. Give Katy credit for trying if nothing else. Peep it:
