Sisterly love will apparently take you very far in life: Pippa Middleton is forgoing promoting her party planning book, “Celebrate,” in order to avoid drawing more attention to her sister Kate’s topless photo scandal. According to the New York Daily News, the youngest Middleton sister has turned down offers to be interviewed by the likes of Oprah and Ellen:

“Pippa has been besieged with offers from everyone in the U.S. media offering her a raft of opportunities…Offers included being a special correspondent on shows like ‘Entertainment Tonight,’ as well as interviews with Ellen DeGeneres, Oprah Winfrey and Anderson Cooper.”

“If she were seen using the royal family to promote her book, she would soon be viewed as the next generation’s Sarah Ferguson…If Pippa is quizzed about Kate’s topless pictures, then whatever answer she gives will generate more news about the matter, and upset Will and Kate.”

All I’m going to say is that this is reminiscent of when Kate and Will first got together. Remember that? And the rumors that Carol Middleton, the girls’ mother, had the entire family on speaking-to-the-press lockdown? Apparently that loyalty runs deep.
And we say, well played, Pippa Middleton. Hoes before tons and tons of dough (snap!).
