Pippa Middleton, Kate Middleton’s little sister and an English socialite, has been axed from her columnist position at the Daily Telegraph, just six months after she was hired, a report by Us Weekly said.

A source at the Telegraph confirmed that the contract for Ms. Middleton will not be renewed.

“The readers just weren’t into it,” the source said.

Ms. Middleton had started writing her “Sport and Social” at the Telegraph in September of last year.

“There was a lot of negative mail coming in after each column, and there were too many off-limit subjects for her. They ran out of ideas,” the source told Us Weekly.

Ms. Middleton continues to write for Waitrose Kitchen magazine and Vanity Fair.
