Kate Middleton's cousin, who, by the way, is a stripper, has decided it's time for her to disrobe for Playboy, according to The Insider. Some days it must really suck to be Kate Middleton. If someone isn't Photoshopping bad teeth into your mouth or making fun of you for having a frugal wardrobe, then your family members are enjoying some free publicity simply because they're related to you. Embarrassing barely covers it.
Katrina Darling isn't afraid to strip down to her birthday suit, especially when there's money involved. Playboy is reportedly offering Middleton's curvy cousin an eight-page pictorial, which is currently scheduled to hit newsstands on August 17th. What's curious about the whole situation is that Darling doesn't have a relationship with Kate -- she didn't know they were related until she listened to media reports on the subject -- which means she's just milking her second cousin's name and popularity for a chance to share a piece of the limelight. Classy.
"[It would be] awkward to meet Kate. I’m not sure what I would say in that sort of situation. But I’m sure we would find something to laugh about in it all," Katrina explained in June.
The unexpected connection to the Duchess of Cambridge has certainly had a positive effect on her career as a stripper. However, the perks of popularity have come with a price. According to Darling, she's isn't exactly treated with respect in the press, though, according to her, she doesn't really pay much attention to such things.
"I’ve been called God knows what in God knows how many languages. I try not to take the negative attention as a personal attack, I try not to pay attention. I try not try read the press too much, so I don’t know what they’re saying about me," she explained.
