Heather Mills says the rich are snobs

Heather Mills sure knows how to give average, run-of-the-mill hypocrites a run for their money. The crazed loony – who has long been criticized for her poorly received attempts at social climbing – has decided to further ostracize herself from the nice people that used to have her over for dinner when she was married to a Beatle. For some reason Heather was invited to give a speech to the debate society at Trinity College in Dublin. I have no idea why they would want to give such a raving diatribist an academic soapbox. It’s like encouraging her mad delusions. During her hour and a half long speech (I can’t help but wonder if it really was supposed to be that long) Mills went off on the rich, calling them stingy and snobby. This is the same woman who turned down several divorce settlements in the $50 million range.

Mills McCartney said she was reluctantly obliged to befriend the world’s wealthy because that was the only way to maximize her power as an agent for change.

“Sadly, you have to mix at a certain level of people to raise the level of funds you need to bring about the greater good,” she said. “Because people are very snobby. These people who have lots of money, they’re either snobby or they’re stingy. If you have lots of money, you have to be stingy — because why would you want that amount of money?”

She also compared herself to human rights crusaders down through the ages, suggesting they all had been victimized for their beliefs. “If you look at every single person in the history of the world who has tried to make a difference, you’ll find a very long section of their lives where they were treated horrifically by the government or by the media,” she said.

Yeah I laughed pretty hard too. Heather Mills is calling someone else snobby? I would be really curious to hear a psychologist’s take on what is actually wrong with her. It’s more than your regular garden-variety narcissism. It’s especially ironic that Heather is criticizing the wealthy given that in the rough draft for her upcoming book, she talks about her desire for social status and brags about mingling with the upper crust and, “wanting that power for herself” and her “hope to find a rich and powerful man of her own.” The only consolation I have when thinking about Heather Mills is that old adage that the people you meet on the way up are the same ones you meet on the way down. And something tells me she hasn’t managed to stay in the good graces of the people that helped her climb.
