Who should host Pippa Middleton's first sit-down interview?
Updated: ABC's Barbara Walters said while she would like to sit down for an interview with Pippa Middleton, rumours that she is in a bidding war for one are false.
"ABC News does not pay for interviews," Walters said Monday on The View. "I have no idea what Oprah is doing...she's not a news program, maybe they have a different policy."
Original story: Heavyweights in the American media are in a bidding war to secure the first sit-down interview with Pippa Middleton.
Oprah Winfrey told her staff at OWN Network to "pull out all the stops" to secure an interview with the younger sister of Kate Middleton, according to the Sunday Mirror. Meanwhile, ABC's Barbara Walters is rumoured to be offering a six-figure sum to secure the interview. The Mirror reports that as much as £300,000 - more than $472,000 - is at stake.
The Huffington Post reports that NBC reporter Matt Lauer is also in the running for the Pippa Middleton stateside interview.
Walters included Middleton in her list of the Most Fascinating People of 2011, a list that also included television personality Simon Cowell, baseball player Derek Jeter, and the Kardashians.
Middleton will reportedly donate any fees for the interview to charity.
Middleton is promoting her new book, How to be the Perfect Party Host. She received a £400,000 advance for the book from the Penguin publishing group. Middleton's experience on the subject comes from her day job editing The Party Times, a newsletter for her family's party-planning website, Party Pieces.
Middleton received worldwide attention after she served as the maid of honour at her sister's wedding to Prince William last April.
