Piers Morgan trashes Heather Mills as ‘a total fantasist, an inveterate liar’


As we discussed earlier this week, Heather Mills spat out some words about her ex-husband Paul McCartney during an interview on an Irish chat show. Heather had nothing but shade and crazy, claiming that Paul was just “a normal guy that happened to write a few cool songs in the 60′s and a few in 70′s.” She also claimed that the kids have no idea who Paul is and that’s why he has to work with people like Kanye West and Rihanna, to have any kind of musical relevancy. As I said, she’s a massive pill.

So it was with great pleasure that I read blowhard Piers Morgan’s Daily Mail column, which was all about Heather and how he’s known her for a long time. He was also a guest on the same Irish chat show AND he claims he was the one to introduce her to Paul McCartney back in the day. The whole piece is an easy, bitchy read – go here to read the whole thing. My favorite parts:

Introducing Heather to Paul: “I introduced Heather to Paul at a charity event in 1999. It was a moment that his daughter Stella later thanked me for with the immortal words: ‘Dad’s really grateful, you cost him $50 million.’

Their divorce: “After their bitter divorce battle, in which Heather tried to single-handedly destroy Paul’s reputation, I issued a public apology to the singer, declaring: ‘I’m sorry Macca for ever introducing you to this little monster.’ She rang me the next day, screaming abuse down the phone. ‘Why the f*** are you doing this to me?!!!’…After more foul-mouthed invective, she suddenly paused, lowered her voice and sneered: ‘I know why you’re doing this… Because you’re a Paul fan.’

His assessment of Heather in general: “She’s a total fantasist. An inveterate liar for whom the truth never gets in the way of a self-aggrandising yarn. Don’t take my word for it, take the words of the judge in her divorce whose damning conclusions were effectively that she’s a greedy, ghastly creature prone to ‘make-belief’. He also said there was no actual evidence to support her much-vaunted claim to donate most of her earnings to charity. I believe Heather married Paul McCartney for his fame, money and to further her own career. The same Paul McCartney she now so gleefully trashes.”

[From The Daily Mail]

Piers goes on to say that he briefly met Paul’s third wife, “a delightful American lady called Nancy Shevell” and that Nancy is utterly lovely and never even name-checks her husband for special service. Obviously, Piers Morgan is an utter starf—ker and snob, but on Heather Mills, I’ll take his word for it. I think he’s probably dead-on about her.

    About the only time I’ll ever agree with Piers Morgan.

  2. ToodySezHey says:

    Piers is just saying what we’re all knowing.

    “…..Piers Morgan trashes Heather Mills as ‘a total fantasist, an inveterate liar’….”

    Well Piers, all I can say, is it takes one to know one.

    And yes, I strongly suspect Heather is a huge pill.

    But Piers has been and will always be, a huge pr*ck.

    I used to work with a woman like that. She just saw herself in this light that no one else could see, and was constantly yammering about how great she was at her job. If she made a mistake, she’d just lie and say someone else did it. If they confronted her with the lie, she’d just say she never said that. Is there a name for that? Well, “bitch,” obviously, but a medical name?

    • Christin says:

      I knew someone like this as well. She could not take even the slightest constructive criticism without having a meltdown and deflecting it on someone else. Would love to know what category (if any) this fits, psychologically speaking.

      • Emma33 says:

        These kinds of people could be narcissists (which I think is classed as a type of personality disorder). But another condition that comes to mind is borderline personality disorder — these people tend to create utter chaos around them. They are also very sensitive to criticism, will see slights where none exist, and can be fantasists and manipulative (whilst fearing abandonment).

        I dated a guy a couple of years ago who I later figured out had borderline personality disorder. It was an interesting experience. And by “interesting” I mean I literally got in a plane and left the country to get away from him.

        Heather Mills might be like this, hard to tell, but if she is I feel sorry for her daughter.

      • Christin says:

        Someone downthread mentioned how personality disorder traits seem to manifest in office or romantic situations. I never had to leave a job or the country (terrible that you had to do that), but I have caught glimpses of how upfront charming and seemingly harmless some people can be before unleashing their more interesting sides.

        One of the higher-ups chalked up my dramatic co-worker as being extremely immature. Even though I think her behavior was a step beyond that, she later quit and is now self-employed after burning through a couple more very good jobs for a year or two at a time.

      • briargal says:

        @Christin–Does this remind you of anyone else we usually comment about? Delusional–only sees what she wants to see, blames everyone else, always trying to make people see that she is a talent beyond everyone else and she is sooooo happeeee with her marriage! Humm……..let me think…..

      • Christin says:

        @briargal – That is one of the reasons she (LAR) fascinates me. It’s as if she embodies every ‘interesting’ trait I’ve ever personally encountered. I cannot imagine knowing her personally. It would have to be exhausting.

        Thank goodness we can just comment on her nonsense from afar. 🙂

      • Lady D says:

        I remember hearing in a movie once, “may you live in interesting times” It was supposed to be an ancient curse, but at the time I couldn’t figure out why it was a curse. It’s starting to make sense.

    • Tristan says:


    • belle de jour says:

      Classic narcissism, probably coupled with a dose of sociopathy (common combination).

      Grandiose view of self + ego so fragile that almost any criticism sets off a vituperative meltdown + feeling of entitlement that they should be able to get away with (or charm) anything and anyone + unwilling to take responsibility for less-than-ethical behavior informed by lack of a conscience are just a few lovely attributes…

      Office settings and romantic relationships seem to bring them to the foreground.

      Seriously just laughed so hard I almost peed my pants. Thanks, GNAT!

    • Jag says:

      Schizophrenia is a completely different condition. Yes, some people with schizophrenia might also be narcissists, but someone like Mills is most likely borderline personality disorder and/or narcissistic personality disorder, in my layman’s opinion.

      • FLORC says:

        Jag is right. It’s completely different. And being schizophrenic doesn’t make you a bad person. It’s an internal struggle of sorts.

        What Mills does is just isolated victim delusional behavior.

  6. Christin says:

    He obviously found out about her ways after he made that fateful introduction.

    Somehow Paul’s daughter must have figured her out. I recall reading that she and perhaps some of the other kids expressed serious reservations about her early on.

  7. Bridget says:

    Piers Morgan, inveterate liar and fantasist, calls Heather Mills a ‘total fantasist and inveterate liar’. There, I fixed the headline.

    • belle de jour says:


      (And I’ve rarely seen an ‘editor’ insert himself into the story on such a regular & dramatic basis)

    • Pixi says:

      I’m going to sound like a complete idiot, but I feel safe here at CB. Can someone please explain to me why we hate Pierce?

  8. lisa2 says:

    Well once you introduce two people what comes next is all them. Paul obviously bought into Heather and married her. That is him.

    But she really seems like a piece of work. They are forever connected because of their daughter.

    Be careful who you marry and who you have children with.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      Yeah this….I mean, it just mystifies me that he didn’t see through her.

      • Jaded says:

        He was still lonely and pining for Linda and Heather saw that like a heat-seeking missile. She recreated herself basically to snag Paul. People with Borderline or NPD can be devastatingly charming, charismatic, almost mesmerizing, and usually very smart. I doubt very much Paul would have thought of doing some kind of background check on her, he seemed quite naïve in those days having been in a happy marriage for so long. I’ve known and worked with people like that and initially you think they’re amazing, then the scales fall from your eyes and WHAMMO, you see the monster underneath the carefully constructed facade.

      • ella says:

        It was obvious to me when they hooked up that it was because she looked so much like his beloved wife Linda (at least to me). I don’t know if that was ever commented upon. Even then, it seemed like the only reason he could be fooled by her.

      • LAK says:

        He met her weeks after Linda had died. He was still grieving, and she re-created herself to comfort him. Right down to material attributes like becoming a vegan for him.

        At the time, people like Piers kept their mouths shut out of respect for Paul. Only his kids voiced their disapproval.

        There was tonnes of PR, probably from his side or both, around the idea that she had brought him through a terrible time and made him happy again. To extent that he refused to have a prenup on their marriage. Something about it not being romantic.

        The minute Paul filed for a separation, the knives came out for her. Piers wrote a version of this same essay. His tabloid, and others, published every dirty, sordid secret of she had. With pictures and video. Apparently they’d been sitting on it out of respect for Paul. Slut shaming at it’s finest and in the daily papers for weeks. It was quite the hatchet job.

        Paul came out smelling of roses whilst Heather did not. Everybody sympathised with Paul whilst Heather was labelled.

        My guess is that her reputation was so ripped to shreds whilst Paul remained protected that she doesn’t care if people think she’s a nightmare anymore. She’s done putting up a false, modest front.

      • Emma33 says:

        @jaded — Yes! You are spot on there. People with these disorders seems to be able to sense vulnerability in another person and will hone in on them. The fact that Paul had had a happy and respectful marriage probably made him putty in her hands in some ways. Also, a typical BPD pattern of relationships is that the beginnings are ah-mah-zing…intense, fast-moving, romantic etc etc. It’s the middle and the end that are full of aggression, drama, delusion and manipulation. (And confusion, for the person without BPD who has no f€&@ing idea what is going on!!!)

    • Gretchen says:

      But if the choice to marry her was all on Paul, how on earth could Piers insert himself into the situation and make himself relevant???? First the Cumberbatch story, now this. I have a feeling we are going to be hearing many more stories from Piers about how he was the pivotal epicentre of every celebrity event ever.

  9. Tulsa says:

    Every kingdom has it’s TROLLS.

  10. ISO says:

    Divorce is ugly, and sir Paul’s team slut shamed her in court. It got very dirty -on both sides. Most kids really don’t know or care about the Beatles, and so what? I’m not saying she should have said anything negative, but look at the reverberations! I think the explosion is much greater than her teeny tiny stick of verbal dynamite!

    • minx says:

      She was well compensated for the time she put into that marriage.

    • Jaded says:

      She wasn’t slut-shamed, she did a good job of doing that to herself over the years. She also blabbed horrific things about him, mostly about his lack of skill in bed and smoking weed. People with NPD, which I think she suffers with, have no qualms about saying or doing the most horrible, and usually false, things to come out on top.

    • Bridget says:

      Remember when she was furious he wouldn’t buy her an antique bedpan? She did a good job of making herself look bad.

  11. L says:

    Okay tough thought game-somehow we all find ourselves in a situation where we have to spending time with either Piers Morgan or Heather Mills. Who do you choose? And you have to choose one. #teamnoone

    But between those two I guess I’d choose Morgan. Mostly because I wouldn’t want to hear Mills drone on about veganaism all the time.

  12. kri says:

    I’m just happy Piers has a second member for his club.

  13. Greek Chic says:

    Is it true that Paul McCartney divorced her because he found out she was a prostitute?

    That’s all I’ve heard about their divorce.

    • Jaded says:

      Lots of stuff started coming out about Heather after they got married. She “shat” on a ton of people on her way up the celebrity ladder. She did pornographic photo shoots, was mistress to some pretty sleazy but rich Middle Eastern guys, even marrying one briefly. She told whopping lies about her background, ripped people off, etc. etc. Oh, and she did have an affair with a guy named Tim Steel whom she already knew, after she and Paul got together. So it’s like the old saying “be careful what you wish for” because she wished for fame and fortune, but went about it in such a deceitful, immoral way, hurting and deceiving a lot of people, that it finally caught up to her.

  14. kibbles says:

    I’m not a fan of the Beatles or Paul McCartney, but if I were to ever marry a man with as much money as he and he gives me $45 million in a divorce, I would never say a single bad word about him in public unless he physically abused me during the marriage. She should just be thankful that she was sly enough to fool a very rich man into marrying her and spend the rest of her life enjoying the millions she doesn’t deserve. I read in the last post about her that she’s already spent much of her divorce settlement. Clearly she doesn’t appreciate what she had and is narcissistic enough to believe that the millions will continue to roll in for her.

    • lucy2 says:

      Forget the money – they have a kid together, one who’s old enough to understand and see what is being said. That alone should be reason enough to never bash him publicly.

  15. tealily says:

    I just read this interesting piece in The Believer about memoirs written by the ex-partners of rock stars. I never got a good vibe off Heather, but this piece put things in a different perspective slightly. I actually kind of like what she said about him being a normal guy… I think it’s healthy for someone’s wife not to think that he is a god. http://www.believermag.com/issues/201407/?read=article_molotkow

  16. Jordan says:

    I hate Morgan, but I hate Heather Mills more. so GO PIERS!!

  17. FLORC says:

    Well, Paul appears happy now and does his current wife. They dated low key and both have great wealth. As well as the age difference not being too extreme. Neither one needs the other for anything more than emotional support and love.
    Heather needed Paul for many selfish reasons. Piers needs to keep talking about this for publicity/attention.

    Funny part of this is I doubt Paul or Nancy will hear much about this. If they do I bet they’re playing “Shake It Off” really loud and dancing on their giant yacht.

  18. Delores Smile says:

    Heather Mills is irritating in interviews. Before and after marriage to Paul McCartney.
    Heather doesn’t notice other people
    Well Paul married her. So . I don’t know what he was thinking. But Heather likes to argue. She would drive me crazy just as a friend trapped in her orbit. And to think people are on their good behavior in public. Geez.

  19. Lauren says:

    I think these two should be put on their own private island and we can call it a day. They can out talk each other to death and hurl some more insults

    • Jaded says:

      Paul never hurled insults, he was quiet throughout the whole divorce proceedings, and after. Heather sunk herself with her vitriol and lies.

  20. Spin says:

    These two should hook up. They are perfect for each other!

  21. Lola says:

    I don’t think she can be diagnosed with a personality disorder, she’s just a mean person who sees others as steps on a ladder that can get her things she wants.
    We can of course call her a sociopath, but she could also be just a very manipulative and absusive woman with a lot of money.

    There’s an abusive man who gave an interview of how he got his “women”, he said he became what they needed: A father figure? He’ll put the kid on his shoulders, A romantic guy? He’ll send flowers and leave messages all the time. You get the idea.
    Eventually he abused them, with words, with physical violence, and they never left.

    Heather is that kind of person.

    • Jaded says:

      She has Narcissistic Personality Disorder, that is very evident. Here’s a description:

      “Narcissistic personality disorder, also known as NPD, is a personality disorder in which the individual has a distorted self image, unstable and intense emotions, is overly preoccupied with vanity, prestige, power and personal adequacy, lacks empathy, and has an exaggerated sense of superiority.” They are also prolific liars.

  22. Guesto says:

    Got to say, I dislike Piers, Heather and Paul in fairly equal proportions so I’m not on anyone’s side here. I think they’re all equally horrible in their own particular ways.

  23. DrMrsTheMonarch says:

    People only know PM because of performers like Kanye? This venomous cow is delusional. Paul’s not even my favorite Beatle. Or even #2 (George, Ringo, Paul, John), but get real.


    Why does she think Kanye and others want to work with PM? Because he’s a genius who transcends generations, genres, and time.

    All of her (read: PM’s) money can’t make her better than she is or more palatable to the public. She’s a money grubbing slug. Eww.
