Heather Mills leaves Dancing with the Stars, skips Jimmy Kimmel appearance

Heather Mills, the ex-wife of Paul McCartney, has been eliminated from Dancing with the Stars 4.

It was not a surprise to Heather, as she prepared notes to read during her exit interview. “We knew we were going out,” she said, partially blaming that on Carrie Ann’s score from Monday’s performance. Heather also said that she was concerned for her partner Jonathan Roberts because “once the dancers go out, they’re not paid. I feel really bad for that reason, so I’m going to try and get him some great work.”

Heather “Mills was scheduled to discuss her experience on ABC’s late-night talk show ‘Jimmy Kimmel Show,’ but did not appear,” according to Reuters. “A spokesman for Mills was not available to explain her absence.”

She was one of the first celebrities whose participation on the show was rumored, and received attention in part because she was dancing on one artificial leg.
