It’s the day after the Heatheruption: it’s up to the tabloids to pick up the pieces and make sense of it all. BBC NEWS culls quotes from the usual suspects. You know The Sun‘s Victoria Newton had something to say about it, and it goes a little something like this:

“I’ve made claims Heather didn’t like in the past – yet every one has been true.

I’ve said she was a gold-digger after Sir Paul’s money. It is a fact, she IS after his money. If she wasn’t after a huge slice of his fortune, their divorce would be settled.

I’ve also said she was a porn star, while she insists she was glamour modelling. And The Sun has the pictures to prove it – some too filthy and graphic to print.

The media response to Heather Mills’ meltdown wasn’t completely negative. The Guardian‘s TV critic Lucy Mangan suggests another career should that whole charity thing fail:

If it was a performance, then we must conclude that the theatre lost a Sarah Bernhardt the day Mills decided to opt for glamour modelling and amputee fundraising instead of acting.

Don’t encourage her, Lucy. British TV viewers have already seen enough of Heather to last a lifetime. They don’t need to watch her crocodile-teared hysterics everyday on EastEnders.

Also, emerging from yesterday’s theatrics was a potentially libelous claim about Paul McCartney‘s relationship to his late wife Linda. And no, I won’t link to it, lest we get sued alongside The Sun and The Mirror, but certainly, it shows how ugly Le Divorce has become.
