Life & Style: Pippa Middleton worries that she will never get married

Ah, Pippa Middleton got a tabloid cover. Huzzah? Not so much. It’s Life & Style, and it’s about Pippa’s love life or lack there of. Last we heard from Pippa, she was engaging in some Three’s Company shenanigans with two filthy rich roommates, JJ Jardine Patterson and George Percy, both of them ex-boyfriends, and both of them seemingly “up” for some Pippa Play. Still, I guess the British and American tabloids want Pippa to conform to some kind of “virginal sweetheart” and/or “Miss Lonelyhearts” image. In reality, I think Pippa is just an ambitious party girl who likes attention and wants to snag the richest dude with the best title.

Kate Middleton’s younger sister, Pippa, wonders why guys are running away! After attending her seventh wedding of the year earlier this month, a friend of the 28-year-old tells Life & Style that Pippa has begun to wonder whether she’ll ever be the one standing at the altar. “Pippa is scared she’ll never find someone who’ll be able to accept her life,” the friend tells Life & Style.

In November, after growing increasingly uncomfortable with her fame, longtime boyfriend Alex Loudon called it quits with Pippa for the second time this year. Ever since the split, according to the friend, Pippa has been deeply worried that she’s become undateble, now that she’s the sister-in-law of the future king of England.

“The men Pippa knows are all majorly turned off by the circus surrounding her,” an insider reveals. Things have gotten so bad, one British magazine has even dubbed it the “Pippa Problem.”

“Pippa is happy for Kate and for her old university friends who are getting hitched, but she’s starting to wonder if she’ll ever find her own Prince Charming,” the friend tells Life & Style.

[From Life & Style]

She’s only 28! And I hope Pippa knows that her sister’s nine-year-WAIT was the exception to the rule, and that Pippa should not play that particular game, pining away for a man for nearly a decade, putting every part of your life on hold in your quest for the ring. And now everyone acts like Kate had the right idea – she’s the exception, I’m telling you. Anyway, Pippa will find her way. She’s ambitious, she’s Uptradey, she has contacts, an unlimited supply of coats and she has a cute ass. I’m not worried – Pippa will find someone, and he’ll be super-rich and connected too.

    What? Not getting married with her wonderful miraculous behind that heals the sick and is the inspirations to women world wide? I’m sure what she’s actually worried about is that she can’t manage to gold-dig her way to better marriage than her sister… if even the same level of prestige. Now, there’s a problem.

  2. samira677 says:

    I must be missing something because I don’t know why everybody is trying to make Kate and Pippa happen. Nobody cared about them before the marriage now they’re fashion icons and the most eligible woman.

    • lisa says:

      ITAWY.. I don’t get the push. I swear NOBODY I know cares about either of them. I like Kate I guess, but all this Kate is stunning or beautiful is just weird to me because she is neither. A Pippa is average at best. I just think the media is trying to feed us a bill of goods. And I don’t think that many people care. I never hear anyone mention either of them outside the gossip blogs.

      They are not that interesting. And how many pictures each day do we need of Pippa walking. UGH

  3. GoodCapon says:

    No one is going to marry her with that face.

  4. Anne says:

    I hate wishing gold-diggers and social-climbers well. To me, it’s like wishing a thief or a particularly corrupt politician well.

    I think it’s distasteful, and I hope Pippa will fall in love with an ordinary guy and marry him.

    • Erinn says:

      Agreed. People will growl about people gold digging, and stepping over people on their way to the top if they’re at least semi-ordinary people- politicians, and other people who aren’t just celebs- but when a celeb does it they cheer them on. It’s gross.

  5. Maritza says:

    I love that bottom photo it’s so editorial(like Tyra Banks would say). I think she is pretty there is no reason to believe she won’t find herself a man and get married.

  6. Blue says:

    I like her boots

  7. Franny says:

    I love the top half of her outfit in the top picture. That bottom half has to go.

  8. njnick says:

    This girl is so unattractive. The second picture of her wearing the vest says it all. She must have an amazing personality/sense of humor because she sure is not snagging these guys based on looks. And if thats the case more power to her.

  9. Diane says:

    Geez, she’s only 28. Love her clothes.

  10. Franny says:

    I don’t really understand why people are so upset that she waited for Will to be ready to get married. I know my situation is much different, but I’ve been with my boyfriend for 4 years and I still have to “wait” for us to get married with medical school and everything else needing to be finished first. My friend just got engaged last week after dating her boyfriend for 8 years. You can’t pressure someone to marry you unless they are ready to, and being patient about the process shouldn’t be seen as a negative thing.

    I would much rather wait to make sure everyone was ready rather than dating someone for 4 months and then get married.

    • Erinn says:

      Exactly. I just passed my 7th year anniversary with my boyfriend. It’ll be AT LEAST another year before we get married, and we’re not engaged. School, and things like that get in the way. People harp on her for waiting all the time, but so many other women are doing the same thing. It’s not pathetic, or wrong.

      It’s honestly more pathetic if you’re ditching someone you ‘love’ to go climb the social ladder, or to find the first person ready to get married.

    • GoodCapon says:

      “I still have to “wait” for us to get married with medical school and everything else needing to be finished first ”

      I think you answered your own question. You weren’t idle while ‘waiting’ for you and your bf to be married. Kate, on the other hand, did nothing of significance for close to 10 years. She had to quit the Jigsaw job (which was tailored for her) because she couldn’t handle the paps/wanted to spend more time with Wills (take your pick). Her Party Pieces job involved her taking cute pictures of their merchandise – hardly 9-5 work. She didn’t last a year in both jobs. So, what else did she do aside from waiting for Wills to propose? I guess she considered partying, clubbing, and having crotch shots taken as work. Even the Queen let it slip that she thinks Kate ought to get off her ass and get a job.

      The frustrating thing is that this incredibly lazy, pathetic woman is now considered to be a ‘role model’ for young girls everywhere.

    • kg says:

      Also I am guessing your boyfriend didn’t cheat on you numerous times while you were waiting and that you just overlooked it while doing nothing.

    • Kelly says:

      OK, I agree re: getting married after 4 months together, but – and I might be in the minority here – I do NOT understand the concept of waiting to get married. Yes, med school, jobs, financial constraints, etc. But you’re already together, and marriage can be a simple ceremony, so why not? Is everyone who’s engaged for years+ waiting until they have enough money for a huge ceremony? I don’t get that either. Marriage is about lifelong commitment, so you could just go to city hall… Just a thought. Nobody bite my head off!

      • Kellie says:

        I agree. I never understood why people wait once they decide to committ. just do it. Make it legal and have a nice reception or ceremony later.

      • Franny says:

        Well, the thing is, we don’t need a marriage to be committed. We live together, we have a life together. For us, and many of my friends who are in similar situation, we are in committed relationships but would like to have a nice wedding where our family and friends can celebrate together. Which is why many young couples live a non-married life together, but are still in committed relationships. I don’t see this as “waiting” so much as being smart about how much a wedding costs/what happens in our lives.

        Also, its very easy to say “well, just get married and deal with the future” but for 2 people either in medical school or trying to get in, you don’t know where you are going to be for the next 4-5 years. So we have 2 options: take every day by day and hope for the best, that we get to stay in the same city for all of school and residency…or we will have to follow our dreams and might have to live in separate parts of the country, which could result in a breakup. Its easy to say “if you really love each other, you can make it work” but until you are there, you don’t know.

    • Day says:

      I don’t think it is just the fact that she waited for Wills; I think what most ppl are annoyed with is the fact that all she did was wait. She didn’t go out and try to accomplish or do anything for herself. This guy dogged her out in more ways than one and every time he came calling, she went running to him. It’s sad, tbqh. Ppl are always going on about how unattractive and piggy Chelsea looks. But, that girl has a good head on her shoulders. She isn’t sitting around waiting for her Prince to come. But, instead is out there enjoying life, working and trying to be known for something other than some guy’s wife. Even when Wills and Kate broke up, Kate sat around waiting for him to return; Chelsea on the other hand parties it u.p…Harry or no Harry.

      • Sachi says:

        I agree with your comment, except for one point: Kate didn’t just sit and wait for William when he dumped her. She went on a PR campaign to get him to come back…by partying, shopping, and walking around to get photographed.

        Every night since William dumped her, Kate went out to clubs and bars and got photographed stumbling about and crazy drunk, to show William what he was missing, and how she could actually live without him.

        Hello!UK practically went on a “Take Kate back, William!” campaign by covering every activity Kate did during the break-up. They were publishing all these positive stories about Kate, as if trying to guilt William into taking back the do-nothing Middleton girl.

        Alas, they succeeded. Partly because nobody else, especially not the aristocratic girls William tried to court, would want to be shackled to William but the lazy, social climbing, gold-digging Kate Middleton and her pimp…I mean, her mother.

        It was reported that Carole was the one who was most upset about the break-up and tried everything she could to reconcile the two.

        Most parents would encourage their children to move on and find someone better, someone who won’t treat their daughters like doormats and cheat on them with many girls.

        But Ma Middleton is not one those parents. She probably has her hooks sunk in William deeper than Kate’s and she ain’t letting go. She’s the one who has enabled her daughter to be as lazy and useless as she can be, all for the sake of bagging the Prince.

      • GoodCapon says:

        There has been persistent rumors that the Middletons tip Hello! that’s why they were able to get all the exclusives.

        Kate’s relationship with photographer Niraj Tanna is quite dodgy too.

  11. Cathy says:

    I like those boots in the bottom picture. I believe she’ll have a hard time finding someone who’s willing to put up with it all. Having a royal connection can be a good thing, but there also has to be a bad part to it also. I think alot of guys will want to just use her to uptradey themselves. She does have money, so guys will want her because of that also. So the only way to avoid uptradey guys is to be uptradey herself.

    • gag says:

      I agree here. My husband and i got married after knowing each other 8 months. He was 30 and i was 26. We have been married for nine years now amd its been fun going through nursing school and my career together – moving from and apartment to a house. Actually things are easier if ur married – tax breaks, combined income, etc. It was the best thing we ever did.

  12. aquarius64 says:

    The author of this article answered his/her question. Pippa’s image is that of a goldigger and a social climber. She’s only out for a guy’s bank account and for a bonus, a title. What guy is going to feel she loves him for himself? He’ll need an iron-clad pre-nup. Her sister hit the marriage jackpot by getting the future king of Great Britain, etc., etc., and now she feels she needs to make an outstanding match.

  13. marge says:

    has anyone else noticed that in all her street photos, ther’s hardly ever more people in it?
    Does she start her day at break of dawn???? It’s London, and it’s crowded. It looks like she’s walking in a 28 days later sort of city

  14. TheOriginalVictoria says:

    Again bitches are haters. People act like Kate was waiting on Joe the Pumber to pop the question and she just looked stupid wasting away waiting for him to give her that half carat Zales engagement ring. Bitch was waiting on a Prince.

    Kind of sad? Maybe a little but, considering who she was waiting for and the perks that she obviously wanted that came with it, homegirl did her thing.

    As for Pippa’s wide ass that is in no way spectacular (I’m starting to think this is a cultural thing), she is totally not happenning. She pretty much dresses like any bright young thing with money to burn, is fugs.

    Let me just clarify, I don’t have a problem with people who are less than stellar in the looks department. I’m not Angela Bassett or Halle Beerry, but I have a problem when the media tries to make certain women who are beyond basic, beautiful just because they are thin and rich but when someone like America Fererra comes along who is truly a gorgeous girl, all they can do is talk about her being a “plus sized” actress (bitch is not even a size 14) and how she feels about her body.

    This is how I feel about Elin Woods as well. That child is fugly. I have not meant one person in my life who thinks she is Charlize beautiful, but she is thin and blonde and has money so she’s stellar?

    Bitch please. Pippa is not all of that and neither is Kate, but she is not hideous and I’ll take the tabs fawning over her instead of Pippa anyday.

    • Bermuda Blues says:

      This is a really bizzare comment. It sounds more like you just don’t find white people attractive, period.

      Calling out Pippa Middleton for being overhyped is one thing, but I’ve never met a person who DID NOT find Charlize Theron to be utterly stunning.

      • Sarah says:

        I think there is some jealousy at play on the part of Victoria.

      • Lee says:

        I think she is saying that Charlize is beautiful and that Elin Woods is not on Charlize’s level. Does that make sense?

      • TheOriginalVictoria says:

        Um you are way off base here. I love how all people look no matter what their color is. I think Angelina Jolie and Charlize Theron are some two of the prettiest actresses I ever saw. A beautiful person is a beautiful person.

        Just as a fugs person is a fugs person.

        My comment is about the standards of beauty in this society and how only some people can by pass that if they have money or look a certain way, as in if they are thin and can fit into sample sizes.

        I used America as an example because she is only size 8/10 US and very petite with a lovely figure and face, but instead of focusing on that they just talk about her being a big girl in the industry. The same can be said for Mia Tyler, Liv’s sister but she’s not as famous.

        Pippa is not cute. Kate is attractive but not the bee’s knees and yet tabs are calling her an “English Rose” and gorgeous. No, Rosumund Pike is an English Rose. Diana, Princess of Wales was an English Rose. I mean if you’re going to make people feel like shit for not being pretty AND thin, at least keep the standard high.

  15. Dani says:

    I always though JJ Jardine was cute. Perhaps he and the Pipster could give it another shot.

  16. Bobby the K says:

    She should be more discreet about her gold-digging and title whoring ways.

  17. It is ME!! says:

    I am sorry, but neither one of the Middleton sisters are attractive. The media needs to stop trying to tell me that they are “gorgeous” because they are not. I know women in their late-30s that look younger than these two.

    It’s called sunblock and a little bit of body fat, ladies. It’ll do you wonders.

    • Kelly says:

      And – yes, it’s been said a million times before – less eyeliner. And, in Pippa’s case, less L’oreal self-tanner. And I swear to god, based on their skin, I think both of them smoke like chimneys.

    • Carolyn says:

      they look like identikit brunettes out on the london party scene (tons of girls look like that) – nothing at all remarkable, looks-wise. Very average. If this article is right…Pippa should be worried. Not a good catch. She should try America for a husband – lots of new money there. PS both look older than me and I’m 41.

  18. SueAnn says:

    She looks like David Carradine

  19. Amy says:

    If she let me borrow her coats, I’d switch teams and marry her.

  20. Fue McCormick says:

    I expected to be on Pippa Middleton ugly outfit #27 today, but the outfit kind of actually looks cute in the first picture. I’m sure the vest is real fur, which pisses me off, but I dig those boots even if they don’t go with the outfit. Does anyone here know who makes the boots?

  21. Aurelia says:

    Pippa is her own worse enemy, she has courted the media and is loving it. Scowls at photogs are fake. She even tipped them off herself at the start of all this post wedding shiz. Her boyf got savy to her games and was outtie. Don’t blame him.

  22. Talie says:

    I think she’d be better off with someone who is super-rich, new money. She’d have great luck in America. All those old-money, titled Brits are too snobby for her.

  23. Day says:

    Why do Pip and Kate look 10 yrs older than their actual age? It is so weird.

    I don’t get why some women are so desperate to be married. The only women who know it isn’t all it is cracked up to be are the ones who have been there, done that. Thankfully, I don’t have to go there to know it isn’t for me.

  24. Mrs.Krabapple says:

    The magazine headline is wrong. She is not “undatable” — she is simply not marriage material for the boys she dates. They are perfectly willing to date her. But their families probably won’t approve of their sons marrying her. She either needs to settle for new money, or tone down her useless/party girl/slut image if she wants old money and title (but maybe that’s why the boys are willing to date her in the first place). These rich jerks will look the other way when it comes to how their own kind behave, but will hold nouveau riche like her to a different standard. Also, she’s too plain looking to think she can snag them based on her looks. If she is really looking for a husband, she needs to start barking up different trees. Or settle for being good enough to screw, not good enough to marry.

    • TheOriginalVictoria says:

      This times ten.

      I really think that Pippa, unfortunately has to make some sacrifices to get what she wants. And that might mean remaking her image if she is trying snag a blue blood.

      I don’t know. I think she comes from a good family with money from self-made parents, why not enjoy what you have. Yo’re already doing better than 95 percent of the population? But I guess eh felt if Kate was willing to wait to snag a title, she does too.

      But the difference is that Kate was on him at 19 or 20. She got in there young so she had to some room to work with. Pips just doesn’t have that luxury.

    • Bermuda Blues says:

      I agree with both of you. I think the publicity that comes with being related to royalty is actually viewed as a negative to people who already have wealth and connections. Fame is a b*tch when you don’t need it for anything. It’s much more enjoyable to be wealthy and anonymous. (Think about how much grief you could avoid!)

      Pippa is finding herself in a similar situation to William’s circa 2007. The well-connected, wealthy set of aristocrats don’t want the fame, therefore they won’t settle down with the famous person. Instead, William settled with a girl who would build her life around him. Not an equal, but someone he could control. Pippa is going to have to re-evaluate her options, like William did when he dumped Kate in 2007, because she’s probably going to find the aristocrats don’t want the fame of being Pippa’s steady boyfriend. The fancy ladies didn’t want to be William’s wife either. Only Kate was willing to give up her whole life for him.

    • Sarah says:

      Yeah, I think she has partied for too long and now the boys are comparing notes. I think she should move to LA, get some surgery, get a real tan and a reality show which people will watch for a little while until she shrivels up and thankfully disappears from public life.

  25. wunder says:

    But that face? CLANK!!!

  26. Sachi says:

    The only thing Pippa is worried about is that she won’t be able to make a match as “prestigious” as her sister, and that anything less of a noble/aristocratic marriage will not please Ma Middleton.

    I don’t think Pippa even considers men who are not as wealthy, titled or coming from a high pedigree/bloodline as the aristocratic/Old Money men she loves to chase around.

    Look at her group of friends. She doesn’t seem to have a friend outside of the aristocratic circles in which she is so desperate to belong. She seems like she only socializes with the ultra wealthy circles because that’s the ladder she wants to climb so much.

    IMO she doesn’t think much of anyone but the wealthy men she flirts with and the rich friends who can gain her entry into high society. She probably doesn’t bother with other people if their wallets aren’t fat enough, their bank accounts are not big enough, or they can’t do anything for her status-wise.

    There’s a story about her going to a party (she was already going out with Alex Loudon at the time) attended by businessmen and bankers. The author of the story was there as well, so according to first-hand account, Pippa “worked” the entire room of businessmen all night long, chatting and flirting them up. She was talking to one man when she was told a wealthier businessman was in attendance. Pippa dropped the conversation so fast in order to pursue the wealthier guy.

    There’s also that bit about her propositioning an aristocratic man for a hook-up/booty call/whatever you wanna call it, the moment his girlfriend stood up to go to the bathroom. Pippa doesn’t wait! She just sidles up to a table and starts selling her ‘assets’, no matter that the guy is already taken.

    Now, with these kinds of stories coming out, who would want her for a wife/in-law? Even if it’s all rumors, it’s just as damaging to her reputation to be described as a gold-digger and social climber.

    She comes across as an aggressive hog sniffing out the best truffles in the woods.

    More and more people are finding out about her social climbing through Pippa’s own fault with tipping off the paps about where she’s gonna be and who she’ll be with in order to drum up some buzz, and she’s being seen in a harsher, more negative light than her equally useless older sister.

    Pippa has “showbiz” in her eyes. She wants to be a celebrity, so she won’t just go away and settle for a rich nobody. She wants the attention, she wants the lifestyle, and she wants the money.

    • Kelly says:

      Wow! My god. I haven’t really been following the ins and outs of Pippa, but it seems believable. And if that’s the case, if she’s out there working the room – and the street corner, who knows – then I have no difficulty believing that she’s not viewed as marriage material. Whatever happened to a little modesty in order to create some interest and mystery???

      Also, I just don’t get the aristocracy thing. I’d be happy to just find a decent, attractive man! Just like with puppies, pedigrees do not guarantee that men will be well-behaved.

      • Sakota says:

        The thing is, Pippa isn’t looking for love, but a business deal. The catch is, that in order to get that at that level via a ‘deal,’ you have to have something to offer, which Pippa does not. She is in over her head and she has a lot of gall thinking that she deserves a title and wealth just because she is hyped by the press. She treated Alex bad and smeared his family and she isn’t even looking ot be a wife, but a well pampered trophy, blowing moeny while her husband pays the bills. Those estates come with a lot of work and she would have ot spend a lot of time working on the estate as Chateleine and ensure the smooth running of the household and ensure that the family fortune is kept intact.

        I think she lost the best she had and now no one will want to touch her socially with a ten foot septer. She is too close to thirty to spent it fortune hunting.

    • Sarah says:

      I have a feeling that everything you wrote is pretty accurate. Antone who can wear a tan as fake as hers would have to be fake in other ways, too.
      I’ll never forget that photo of her dancing in a purple bra. Remember, it was published the day after the wedding!
      Yeah, she’s an embarrassment.

  27. Shaz says:

    I love those boots – what kind are they?

  28. dena says:

    That face! WOOF.

  29. Lady_Luck says:

    She lacks the general finesse of Kate, is a bit of a famewhore and trades herself as the happy go lucky party girl. Unfortunately, the line she has taken doesn’t quite gel with the man she is looking for. She is not a Kate replica, and far from it, she is quite masculine and not aging very well – least not in the face. Apart from that, you can’t say the girl is ugly. She just needs better PR..

  30. Big Davve says:

    Wow, I just happened upon this little article and these “oh so thoughtful” comments that have been posted, just because I saw the pic of Pippa Middleton in that red dress and thought, “Wow, I have to take a closer look at that!” Who are you people taking these awful shots at this girl? All I can say is that I’m a 100% straight male who loves beautiful women and who in my 38 years has met and even dated way more than my fair share! All I can say is that this girl is HOT, HOT, HOT, HOT!!! I really could have cared less about the recent “royal wedding” but sooner or later ran into a picture of Miss Pippa (after all they are everywhere) and was struck by her beauty, especially that she’s so hot without looking like she really tries to be. If she dates only rich men, that’s fine with me, a lot of girls do that. She doesn’t wear gaudy jewelry or flaunt expensive things, either.

    Compare that to too many of our American celebs, especially the reality show crowd, led by that family that wouldn’t be famous if OJ Simpson hadn’t murdered his ex-wife (yes, I mean the Kardashians) and how they would sell their souls (and probably already have) for any more fame and cash they can get their hands on.

    I especially love that so many of these nasty comments are apparently from females, please link to your Facebook page next time you post something nasty about this girl’s looks, I want to see what YOU look like-I bet its NOTHING PRETTY!

    • Big Davve says:

      and where do you people hail from anyway-it sounds like some are stateside and some are in the UK-I’ve been to London many times and have met much nicer people than the whiny b*tches posting here! Pipster, if you want to come to the USA and be shown a great time, let me know, I will send you a ticket (First Class of course, or if necessary, charter a plane-you are worth it!) Plus, all of the “super-rich” in the UK are now Indians and Russians anyway-that whole blue-blood thing is going the way of the horse and buggy! Come stateside where the real money is still being made and you don’t have to worry about your whole little country getting carpet-bombed next time the Germans get pissed off! (and then WE have to come save your a** AGAIN!)
