Not like they need the money!

(I really like that blouse she is wearing; maybe she should be added in the fashion thread?)
I'm not understanding why the Aussies are so excited about the Duchess of Cambridge's sister visiting them on her honeymoon. I love Pippa but this is really strange.

I also doubt they are receiving any payments. Apparently, they turned down a "name your price" offer from Hello for wedding photos/interview so why would they agree to payment for this? I don't think Vivid could afford to pay more than Hello/People could. And, even if they are receiving something (payment, hotel) why should it be investigated? Zara does it all the time in her capacity as a showjumper.

I like her blouse also and I think Catherine has one like it. (In fact, Pippa could be wearing Kate's blouse. They've been known to share clothes.)

Its possible she was given these clothes by the designer to wear for free in exchange for her being photographed wearing them.
Even so, honeymoons to me should be photographer-free occasions since they are meant to be a private holiday between the couple.

I think they've always reacted appropriately but hey ho, I suppose the world would be better boring if we all had the same opinion
I totally agree with this.

Most people here in Australia couldn't care less about Pippa and are not excited to see her here.

That's what people say, but there's hundreds of comments on any item about Pippa.

(If nobody was interested, she'd simply fade into obscurity. But someone is clicking those articles and commenting).

I think the Oz media is just having a bit of fun with Pippa and Jame's visit.

There was a lot of attention yesterday about her white top - now dubbed the "Seinfeld Puffy" shirt.

So much attention in fact, that Pippa got the political cartoon in today's Sydney paper.

The cartoonist has her modeling "The Seinfeld Collection" - the "Elaine", "George Costanza", "Kramer" and "Soup Nazi, (complete with cooking stains.)

One of the TV shows managed to get some footage of James on the balcony of their hotel while they were in Sydney and billed it as a "scoop".

But even the hosts couldn't keep a straight face about their "scoop" and it's true value as a media worthy bit of footage.

That's now spread across other media outlets, as we're all in on the joke.

Joke or not, why even bother? Someone said "nobody cares" but if the media in Australia are running story after story, SOMEBODY must care? I'm puzzled, that's all. If Pippa and James had spent time in the US during their honeymoon, I assure you it would not make any of the papers, not even as a cartoon. They were photographed at LAX only because there are photographers at that airport 24/7 because of all the celebs who come through. The photographer took a couple of photos of Pippa and James and sold those photos to the Daily Mail. There were no stories on the evening news in the US about them. I don't watch those entertainment shows so I don't know if they had anything.

Oh well, I am enjoying the photos from Australia and they are harmless, I suppose. At least the honeymoon at the resort was totally private.

I don't think Pippa was needed to promote it.

It's already bigger than Mardi Gras and the New Year's fireworks.

Has been going for quite a few years and draws international visitors already.

Promoted as the biggest light show in the world.
Thanks for sharing; I highly enjoyed watching Vivid!

I agree that this is all a bit of light, very light entertainment, taking the mickey in a very Aussie way.. However, with regard to coverage you have to remember that Australia is a Commonwealth country. We get tours by the royals, front covers of magazines on them, BBC docos etc so I'd guess that per capita more people know who Pippa is than say people in the US do.

It's the foreign papers which are obsessively following them

Australia it's local news from what I have seen. It's pretty common, when someone of some minor celebrity comes to town, they make the news. At least on a slow news day. Not surprising Darwin or Sydney local news covers it. The NT simply seems to share our sense of humor. They are poking fun almost as much at the foreign press as the couple. No different then the political cartoons we see. The reporters were making a joke about the daily fail and other foreign press who would have us believe the couple are bring met by throngs of reporters and excited crowds. Who hasn't wanted to make the daily fail look like idiots before? Not hard to do.

Smaller the town the more likely you make the paper. We made the little news sheet on one of the islands we volunteered on. We're not impressed when they sent out a photographer to shoot us in neon vests. But we smiled for it. Slow news day and we were news.

A few off-topic posts have been removed - let's get back on topic, Pippa and James, not the positives and negatives of the Australian / foreign media. If you wish to continue that tit-for-tat, please do so via PM.

It seems to me that the US website The Drudge Report and the German magazine Bilde didn't do too badly in breaking the news world-wide of Harry's first stint in Afghanistan.

The Aussie media is irreverent. That's just the nature of it. However, here is the Sydney Morning Herald's take on Pippa's visit and also on republicanism and a certain Republican President. 'We'll take Pippa's in-laws for now, thanks' it says.

A republic with a president? We'll take Pippa's in-laws just now, thanks

It's a big ring indeed. And I don't understand people who can exercise with jewelry on, it drives me crazy.

They would suit the healthy, active lifestyle of Sydney now I think about it.

Do Pippa and James have the PR rep that Pippa hired before her wedding with them in Australia?

I read that too - but I think it was a sarcastic remark regarding how much coverage she had once she got to Australia
