Pippa Middleton Reportedly Has Her Sights Set on 'Dancing With the Stars'

Deary me! Get this one -- Pippa Middleton reportedly wants compete on Dancing with the Stars, presumably in an effort to up her popularity over here in the good old USA.


What the what?

Star magazine (here's the grain of salt you'll want to take alongside this rumor) says Princess Kate's sister is desperate to maintain her fame and wants a little spotlight of her own in the form of competing on DWTS.

In fact, Star's source (allegedly one of the duchess's bodyguards who appears to be very loose-lipped) claims Pippa has even reached out to Derek Hough to ensure her plan is a go.

The guard says:

She wants her sister's fame, that's for sure. I heard she is desperate to be on Dancing with the Stars, but the palace asked her to back off. They felt it would sully the image of her sister, the Duchess of Cambridge. Well, I tell you she did not care! She contacted Derek Hough, and he is a big fan of the idea.

Well, duh! I mean, of course Derek would love to add another mirror ball trophy to his already huge collection, and Pippa would certainly seem like the type of celebrity to secure such a win.

But this just sounds silly. First of all, how did Pippa track down Derek? And why would the sister of a royal want to go down the road of a reality TV show? It makes no sense to me, so I'm weighing in on this one as not bloody likely.

On the other hand, this would make for amazing TV and I'd totally watch. Think they could get Kate and Wills to sit on the sidelines to cheer for Pippa?

Again, not bloody likely. (But how amazeballs would it be to see them in the audience? OMG. Bruno Tonioli would probably faint.)
