Mills Ups The Ante
The divorce proceedings between Paul McCartney and Heather Mills look like they're going to get much, much worse before they get better. The New York Post reports today that Mills has told friends that she's got secret tapes that'll prove her allegations against McCartney. McCartney's supporters have scoffed at her claims, McCartney, through his lawyer, has publicly denouced the charges, and Paul's' friends claim that these supposed tapes don't actually exist anyway. When the trial gets underway to split up McCartney's $1.5 billion fortune, expect the mudslinging to only get worse.
Colbert Returns to School
Stephen Colbert-parade master? The fake newsman might have a new career on the horizon after leading the Northwestern University homecoming parade the other night in Evanston, Ill. Colbert, who graduated from Northwestern in 1986, was the grand marshal of the parade, which meant he handed out candy and riled up the crowd as he marched through the campus wearing a purple Northwestern hooded sweatshirt. Too bad we probably won't see footage of that on the "Colbert Report" anytime soon. Meanwhile, the LA Times reports that politicians are finally wising up to Colbert's sarcastic ways on the show. With midterm elections coming up, he's finding it harder to book the guests for his weekly "Better Know a District" segments. Our guess is he'll just try to ensnare the politicians another way.
