Heather Mills, who as far as we can tell is wealthy, healthy, good looking and lucky, is divorcing former Beatle great and near-richest guy in the world, Paul McCartney.
Today she cried on TV. But at least she had better reasons than Ellen Degeneres who cried because of a repossessed dog.
“Do you fear for your life?” Mills McCartney was asked in a British Broadcasting Corp. television interview.
“Yes I do, yes I do,” she said.
“And you are saying that Paul McCartney does not protect you and your child?”
“I’m afraid not,” Mills McCartney said.
She also appeared earlier in the day on an ITV television morning show, saying she had taken precautions because of death threats.
“I have a box of evidence that’s going to a certain person, should anything happen to me, so if you top me off it’s still going to that person, and the truth will come out,” she said.
“There is so much fear from a certain party of the truth coming out that lots of things have been put out and done, so the police came ’round and said, `You have had serious death threats from an underground movement.'”
On the BBC, she was asked if the tabloid newspapers were at fault.
“It’s the tabloids and a certain party, but it is so extreme and so abusive … I mean, I’ve been called monster, whore, gold digger, fantasist, liar.”
“When you say certain party, do you mean someone from Paul McCartney’s camp?” BBC reporter Maxine Mawhinney asked.
“I’m not allowed to talk about Paul and the court case and all that kind of stuff, because we are in court,” Mills McCartney said.
“But it is, by clear implication, that’s what you’re saying,” BBC reporter Jon Sopel said.
“I can’t say, because I’d be in contempt of court. But you’re not stupid, that’s all I can say.”
Paul McCartney, 65, declined to respond. “There’s no comment from our side,” said his spokesman, Stuart Bell.
Ellen Degeneres cried during her TV show last week bemoaning the fact that her adopted doggie was repossessed in a dispute with the adoption agency. But Ellen recovered quickly by most accounts.
Ellen’s executive producer Andy Lassner hid in a hollowed out pumpkin for over 35 minutes so that he could surprise Ellen during her show today, Halloween. He is still pulling pumpkin seeds out of his ears, we hear.
And Ellen doesn’t look any worse for wear after the dog-crying jag.
These are people with nothing important going on…..
