Oh dear, Penguin advanced young Pippa £400,000 for her party planning book and it's bombed. There is a lesson here, never underestimate the public's ability to throw a sandwich together without written instructions.

'Celebrate" appears to be the kind of exciting book that once you put it down, you can't pick it up...

Amazing when someone only gets famous becuase they are the sister of someone who only got famous becuase she married someone who only got famous because of who their mother and father were.

Damn, here was me thinking it was because the blokes from the press were fantasising and gushing over her bum. :) At some wedding or other IIRC.

The book was slated in the press when it came out as being very silly and trivial, though maybe it contains hidden gems of wisdom which they missed? :rofl:

Publishers often pay big sums to famous people for the privilege of having them in their catalogue and don't really expect to make a profit, maybe they hope for a knighthood as a result? But Pippa M? Jeez, what were they thinking?

hehe :) - I see bums like that a plenty while trundling round Tescos using my trolley as a Zimmer frame :rofl:


This restore my faith a little bit ( but only a little ) I that the public are not just buying any old tat because it's contains the face of some pointless celebrity stamped upon it. :)

Maybe she'll fight back and try a fitness workout DVD next?? :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

Or how about "Pippa Middleton's Land Drainage and Groundworks for the Construction Industry" ?

or "Pippa Middleton's Guide to installation and Maintenance of Street Furniture in Rural and Urban Crossover Zones"

Of course, Yer Aristocracy has entertained marrying with trade to get some extra shekels into the coffers for generations. But when your actual fucking Royalty start doing it to raise a few extra pennies you've really got to start questioning the social order.
