Pippa Middleton: Fired as Newspaper Columnist!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Pippa Middleton and her "Sport and Social" column have been axed from her post at Britain's respected Daily Telegraph after just six months on the job.

Kate Middleton's little sister confirms that her contract is not being renewed by the publication, which brought her on board to great fanfare late last year.

The younger Middleton's column with the Telegraph began with a piece on her new athletic passion, boxing, which she calls "a pure but pleasing agony."

Her columns went on to depict a string of exciting antics, from flipping pancakes to cycling underwater. However, a source at the newspaper says that:

"The readers just weren’t into it. There was a lot of negative mail coming in after each column and there were too many off-limit subjects for her. They ran out of ideas."

It's a second literary disappointment for Pippa Middleton, who was criticized for cashing in on connections, not talent, to secure a publishing deal.

Future book plans were shelved by Viking after her Celebration debut tanked, although she continues to write for both Waitrose Kitchen and Vanity Fair.

She also remains Lord of the Arsetocracy ... so there's that. Whether there was a false bottom or not, she's got one of the best on the entire planet.

Plus she's still rich. Could be worse off.
