I agree. She should hold out for at least a million

I didn't realise the only people that get hired as correspondents are people with a degree in journalism.

The networks better start firing dozens of people immediately

A million dollar correspondent doesn't pick up her own luggage, at least I wouldn't if it were me

Tell me about it. If I could afford it, there would be someone making my breakfast, lunch and dinner, laying my wardrobe out and driving me around.

Pippa isn't spoiled. I really like that she gets out and travels.

The Today Show flew Pippa to America on their dime. Of course she was going to get the VIP treatment and I don't blame her.

Pippa Middleton: May 2011-

I'm thinking the Teddy Bear is more for George than Nico. :)

No grown guy wants a teddy unless its the lingerie kind for his girl to model instead of the bear :)

Doesn't she have an English Lit degree? People with English Lit degrees do go on to be reporters/journalists.

I don't see the big deal with her becoming a special correspondent. She's going to be reporting on fluffy stuff, not hard hitting news. The Today show (and other morning shows) have routinely employed actors, models and the kids of politicians to report on special stories, so I don't see why it's so shocking for Pippa to be hired.

For the record, Fergie and Charles Spencer were both special correspondents for the Today Show.

^^^^ Absolutely agree

And yes Pippa has an English Lit degree from Edinburgh, one of the top universities in Britain.

Right? If that was the case Anderson Cooper wouldn't have a job as he has a degree in Political Science.

I remember Richard Palmer from the Express saying on twitter than majoring in journalism is a relatively new thing in the UK.

I can see Pippa doing active participant segments for Today sort of like a video version of what she did with the Telegraph column. I can also see her being used in NBC 's Olympic coverage in 2016.

I also don't think that you are spoilt if you pay someone to assist you with your luggage.

That is a legitimate job (i.e. porter)...and they count on people who don't want to be bothered...that's how they pay their bills (i.e. tips).

Yes and lots of people survive on tips and pay their rent and utility bills, and if the tips is big then that really helps those that need it....

The VIP services at Geneva airport are not tip-based. Depending on what services are required, there is a fee which is paid. Arrival services from one of the VIP services (not necessarily the one that Pippa engaged) is 280CHF, around $300USD. My family travels a lot, and we frequently pay fees to make our departures and arrivals pleasanter and easier.

It is cheerful to know that Philippa is supporting Disability SnowSport UK.
Will there be any snow or ice sculptures?
I inquire because Cousin James attended an event where there would be ice sculptures. The weather turned slightly warmer. Fortunately the ice sculptures lasted.
