Pippa Middleton gets her own TV show, backside gets plastic surgery honor
Pippa Middleton stole the spotlight at the Royal Wedding and now her notoriety has made her the subject of "Crazy About Pippa," a one-hour special set to air on TLC in August.
The show will air on August 9 at 9 p.m. ET and "focuses on Britain's most eligible bachelorette -- Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton's younger sister -- Pippa Middleton," according to the network's press release. The special will reportedly include interviews with those closest to Middleton.
Pippa's appearance at the Royal wedding in a gorgeous Alexander McQueen gown sparked interest and earned her the unofficial title of "Her Royal Hotness" and a website dedicated to her derriere and a 230,000 member-strong Facebook fan group.
The 27-year-old's backside has even sparked a plastic surgery craze called the "Pippa Butt Lift," according to FOX News.
"The latest craze here in the U.S. and all over the world is to get the 'Pippa Butt Lift,'" Miami-based celebrity plastic surgeon Dr. Constantino Mendieta told the news site. "Once the breast implants reigned supreme, now it is the buttocks that are considered a woman's best asset."
Middleton's Pilates instructor Margot Campbell also plans to cash in on the craze and is penning a book detailing how to get a shape similar to "Her Royal Hotness." She reportedly received offers after Middleton wrote a glowing review on her website.
"As someone who is always 'on the go,' Pilates has been a wonderful escape from my busy lifestyle in London," Middleton wrote in her testimonial. "Over the past few months I have noticed a huge difference in my core strength and posture and couldn't recommend Margot more highly as an instructor. From breathing techniques, muscle toning to overall flexibility and relaxation, my Pilates sessions have become something of a weekly necessity that keeps me fit, happy and energized."
Middleton, who was formerly working as a party planner, has also taken a job with her rumored love interest, wealthy heir George Percy's geothermal energy firm. She will now help lobby for government licenses which would allow the Percy's company to drill underground for hot water which would be converted into heat and electricity. Pippa also works part-time at her parents' party planning company Table Talk and writes an online magazine for their online party supply website, Party Pieces.
According to People magazine, Middleton recently split up with former England cricketer Alex Loudon, who accompanied her to the Royal Wedding. However, the pair was spotted at a different Wimbledon match earlier this week.
Middleton's sister Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge and brother-in-law Prince William recently completed an official tour of Canada and California. See photos of their visit.
Pippa Middleton served as the maid of honor at her sister's wedding and was responsible for planning the post-wedding party, which reportedly made palace officials "shudder."
