Pippa will probably turn this one down

Uh huh. Right. This is a legitimate offer, and has nothing to do with publicity. Okay, Steve, we’ll play along. Hollywood Reporter says:
Kate Middleton's sister has been offered $5 million by Vivid Entertainment to appear in a porn flick, TMZ reported.
Vivid founder/co-chairman Steven Hirsch sent Pippa Middleton -- who earned raves for her Royal Wedding attire at the April 29 nuptials of her sister and Prince William -- a letter dated May 6 officially making the offer. "As far as I was concerned, you were the star of the recent Royal Wedding," Hirsch wrote. "As I watched a broadcast of the event, I couldn't help but think that with your beauty and attitude, you could be an enormously successful adult star. This week, after seeing photos of you having a great time at a party, I decided to offer you a role in one of our upcoming movies."
Hirsch said the $5 million payment would be for "just one explicit scene" and that Middleton could have her "choice of partners."
That’s awfully sporting of him; usually people who get unsolicited appeals to engage in sexual congress on film wonder whether they’ll get some hairy schlump or Brad Pitt on a unicorn. Vivid wants to take the anxiety out of the process, and that’s sweet of them. All we can say is this: it’s a good thing the SEALs shot bin Laden, or we’d be getting press releases about an offer for a certain someone to star in Osama Does Abbottabad. Did I say bad? Make that Abbottanasty.
