Heather Mills was Hoping for a Gay Partner


I rarely watch Dancing with the Stars but last night I happened to catch Heather Mills performing the Mambo with her dance partner Jonathan Roberts. Mills did a stunning backflip during the routine, and if there were ever a time for the leg to come flying off, that was it. Mills has been publicizing her stint on the show with just such a possibility.

She told Access Hollywood: "There is a chance on one of the tricks that I do on the mambo at the beginning it is such a kind of pow trick that it could come off. And, I know people are making bets on it and everything." She also told Jay Leno, earlier this week, "I've bet a few hundred dollars it's not going to come off. So I'll win some money."

Mills also recently said she wanted a gay man as a partner: "I asked for a gay guy... I said, 'I haven't had a date in 10 months and yet I've been associated with all these different people, which is rubbish.' Jonathan turned up and I said, 'Well, he doesn't look gay,' and I said, 'Are you gay?' And he said, 'No, I'm not, I'm married...' He's just a great person."

Though I have issue with so many things about that last statement, I have to say that Mills does a mean backflip given her prosthetic limb. She certainly knows how to keep her eyes, er, leg on the prize. Clip (sorry for the quality) after the jump...

  3. I think the fumes from the toupee glue have clouded his self-perception.

    And please stop being so nice to her!

  5. Forgive me, but I swear your headline read that Heather was "hopping" for a gay partner! I thought, "Wow, that's in bad taste." Ooops.

  6. ...c'mon boys, it's so predictable you'd bring "he sure *looks* it" and "coulda fooled me..." Keep perpetuating the stereotype, gentlemen!

  9. "Are you gay?"
    "No, I'm just really good-lookin'."

  10. uh, what does "looking gay" mean? is it a la garrison keillor when he stated the requisite dress was polka dots, etc? obviously, her brains are in her hollow leg.

  11. what if i think her partner looks gay...yes, that may be presumptuous...he may NOT be, but I wouldn't be surprised if he was, (even if he says he's married...he didn't say to a woman, lol), it's just an honest observation which shouldn't be such a big deal...the idea that someone might be gay being so awful is what sucks, besides it's Alex, but mostly Max, on the show that are HOT and give me the shivers...Go, Max and Laila!

  12. I don't know why she wanted a gay dance partner...we don't like golddiggers any more than anyone else does.

  13. she does dance pretty well with that pegleg!

  14. Um, have you heard him speak?? He may be married, but I doubt it's to a woman. He's not even trying to hide the gay.

  15. Her dancing was awful. That goofy grin of hers. She seemed to be constantly surprised that she was still standing / twirling / shimmying, etc.

    Less concerned with whether her dance partner is gay, and more concerned with why she cares so much. I mean, if she has a heterosexual partner, she will automatically be linked to him? The press and peeps are going to talk anyway.

    Oh. And we KNOW that being married doesn't mean jack shit when two people are in lust, er, luv.

  16. I don't have any problem with her statement. And that wife beater she was married to isn't any better.

    She's fine by me.

  17. How shallow of her to request a gay man.

    The only thing that should matter is that he's hot.

  18. "we don't like golddiggers any more than anyone else does"

    And Reichen can't dance....

  19. the 50 million will turn any gay straight, can't wait for somebody to take it from this yokoho or yoho...i kill me.

  20. Okay,

    When did it become okay for someone to ask if you're gay after you just met them? Does she really think she's so hot that they guy would want her, 50 mill or not?

  21. OMG! Heather has blown me away. I confess that the only reason I am watching this show is for Heather, and I will continue to watch as long as she is on. While the other dancers were ok, they didn't come close to the excitement of Heather and Jonathon. I hope they stay on the show for a long time. Heather deserves 100 million dollars or more to have put up with stodgy, creepy Paul McCartny. None of her detractors know how difficult he is to live with, and he trashed her, the mum of his child. What a sorry piece of crap. I hope he's eating his heart out. Heather is awesome. I have endless respect for her courage, free spirit, and sense of humor. I'm blown away!

  22. That horrible horrible HORRIBLE slutty attention seeking bitch from hell! Ugh she makes my skin crawl. She's crawled from under a rock, scammed her way into a Beatle's life, taken a man for half of everything he's ever worked for all his life, slagged her way for all the fame she can garnish, fled her home country because she's so hated, and now is milking innocent America for sympathy. I hope her good leg flies off with her arms and even better her head! GET RID OF HER YOU GUYS!
