As we all know, Heather is going through that nasty divorce from estranged husbandÂ Sir Paul McCartney & has faced loads of criticism for her apparent money grubbing ways.
But while on the show, a former decorator called, as she felt compelled to apologize to Mills for thinking she was a bad person.
Listener & caller Pat revealed, “I’m ashamed that I had a judgment against her based on everything that you read in the newspapers, that she was after his money, and, come on â€“ everyone was down on Heather Mills.”
“But, she has won me over, and I can admit it, that I had formed a bad opinion about her. I am embarrassed, actually. I would love to apologize to her. And America should apologize. People should apologize to her. She was wrongfully treated.”
Asked by Seacrest how this made Heather feel, she managed to keep her dignity for a while but then fell into a well of a good cry, saying,Â Â “Ah, that makes me feel emotional. Hooo. That’s great.”
“Yes, it’s just amazing. … I had a choice. I could have gone down … excuse me, you got me going now … sorry … I could have gone down that path of lowering myself to everyone else’s level and proven my innocence.”
“All I did was fall in love with somebody madly, and give up my life for seven years, you know. And then just to be vilified for it? I’m actually quite shocked. I’ve spent 14 years doing charity work. … If I was a gold digger, I would be a very wealthy woman now. And I’m not.”
I dunno, Heather.Â You did put on a pretty good money grubbing show, now didn’t you?Â I think I’m going to have to leave this one up to you.
All in favor of Heather Mills as a gold digger, say ‘aye’.
