Hey, we've got to hand it to the tabloid television successors at the syndicated infotainment show, Extra. They got an interview with Heather Mills, the woman who's in the middle of the dirtiest divorce of this new century, a woman who accuses Paul McCartney of abuse, who's slandered the beloved aging Beatle, who allegedly bugged and recorded him-- and who allegedly has a past as a high-end prostitute.
We can't wait to hear-- oh, wait, this just in: Extra says the one-legged hardballer will discuss her vegan diet, her health-and-fitness regime — but not the divorce.
We don't believe it. This is a woman who spills her guts to Larry King! What's Extra doing, taking lessons from Entertainment Tonight? After its apparent complicity in the Patrick McDermott disappearance cover-up on behalf of Olivia-Newton John, the show would surely risk whatever credibility it has by agreeing to ignore the most obvious elephant in the room. No, the tabloid television vets behind the scenes would never allow themselves to be so blatantly inconsequential.
The interview airs next week. We'll see.
