Heather Mills does not want to answer questions about Paul McCartney anymore. During an interview on Ireland’s “The Late Late Show,” Mills, 47, got frustrated when host Ryan Tubridy kept asking questions about McCartney, 72, who she divorced in 2008.
“That umbilical cord was broken,” she said. “He's married someone else, and I agreed to come on the show so it wasn't just all about Paul.”
When Tubridy suggested that people were interested, Mills said no one who came up to her in public asked about the former Beatles member. “When I go down the street, all I get is kids coming up to me,” Mills explained. “Half of them don’t even know who he is. That’s why he’s got to do songs with Rihanna and Kanye West, so people remember.”
The former "Dancing with the Stars" contestant listed off her accomplishments such as being a professional skier, working with animal charities and owning a large vegan company. Mills, who lost her left leg in a motorcycle accident in 1993, also focuses on philanthropic work with other amputees.
“I council thousands of people with disabilities,” Mills said. “I want them to grow up and wake up and go, ‘Oh my God, I can do that.’ They’re not going to sit there and go, ‘Oh, what was that song he sung?’”
The activitst was much more open about her relationship in a January interview with the Daily Mail. “When I got married I thought I’d be protected but I wasn’t, I was hung out to dry,” she said. “It’s the worst thing I’ve ever gone through and now I’m over it.”
However, Mills wasn’t in the mood to share such personal details with Tubridy. “It's so boring,” she laughed. “Honestly, if you want me to fall asleep — if you had a pan of soup, I'd put my head into it.”
