    Louis will unfortunately probably just expose her flakey side, which she surely has, because it will look more contentious and "interesting" on television.
    Good on her though with the food donation thing.
    ..but what would they do with all the cows?..

    i have to agree, Louis Theroux's style is giving his subjects enough rope to hang themselves and then letting them make themselves look weird/stupid/etc.

    gotta be a good thing with the donation, although i'm sure the media will manage to twist it to make her look bad anyway.

    I read about the Heather Mill's donating food story. I don't know why everyone criticises her so much, I think she does a lot for animals.
    I love Louis Theroux as well though. He isn't normally mean and I hope he isn't to Heather if the interview goes ahead.

    definitely this! but i read a comment he made about Heather that sounded like he actually liked her and that he thought the media had attacked her quite a bit, so i'm hoping he'll be nice to her.

    it's not like she's a "god-hates-fags" extremist *shudders*

    She is hated in this country because of a concentrated media campaign by a couple of the 'red top' rags and her daring to be critical of them and saint McCartney!
    I hope i'm wrong but the Louis Theroux thing may well reflect badly on her!

    Mills announced her donation of soy hamburgers, soy hot dogs, and soy chicken cutlets just before the Hunts Point Back to School Fair kicked off Saturday afternoon.
    ...
    "My plan is to get healthy food out to kids and to get it in the service industry, get it in retail, make a fast-food chain around the world with healthy options and just keep doing my work behind the scenes," Mills, 40, told People Sunday."



    "Behind the scenes." Right. Like she doesn't want any credit.

    Still, yeah, she's doing a good thing. And I definitely like the idea of an international vegan fast-food chain.

    No don't use Louis Theroux! AHHHH! He will make her look like a crazy cat lady...not that there is anything wrong with that hehe! What alot of people don't realise (or at least the general non-vegan public) is that Paul is vegan too. Why isn't he donating vegan food to poor kids? I know he does stuff with Viva but actual direct, instant and life changing stuff? Nah screw that I'll just put my face on a few leaflets and donate some cash. I know he does good stuff elsewhere....I like Paul but people have got to realise that Heather is serious about what she is doing and people are taking the piss outta her. Just cuz she divorced an EX Beatle and got some cash outta it...isn't that what happens in all divorces and atleast she isn't sitting on her arse eating expensive vegan cake ay? I like her and think she is desperate for good publicity......but Louis? His shit normally makes me laugh!

    There's very little evidence to suggest that he's vegan and plenty to say that he's vegetarian. In every interview I've seen/heard about him where the subject comes up he mentions his vegetarianism with no mention of veganism. He's a patron of the Vegetarian Society.
    http://www.vegsoc.org/patrons/index.html
    If he were vegan the Vegan Society would probably make a big thing out of it and would love him to be a patron, or at the very least interview him for The Vegan magazine. Paul's mentioned that his son James is vegan but I don't think you'll find anything where he's quoted as saying that he is.

    I saw a clip of her singing once, I shouldn't laugh really. She made her name a household name for vegetarian food though so good on her. Maybe Heather Mills will gain her popularity one day too. I don't know why the media has to be so vindictive with certain people.

    I didn't think Paul McCarthney was vegan either, I have only heard of him being vegetarian and there was a big fuss about him feeding his dog a veggie diet a while back.

    I assumed he was vegan because Heather said in an interview once that he had led her down the vegan path. He's dating a fur hag? Fucking hell bet his AR orgs ain't happy about that...but then again if he has anything to do with PETA they will just give him a pat on the back! At least he doesn't wear fur right?

    I think the British press has demonized poor Heather. Is she perfect? No. But they are quick to launch a huge attack over any little thing she does. I feel sorry for her. Her crime? She had the audacity to divorce a Beatle. How dare she!? And look, she's expecting money in the settlement too! Bah, that gold digger, never loved him, just wanted his money!

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but as far as I know there wasn't even a single negative article about her prior to the talk of the separation/divorce.

    Oh no, loads of negative articles from the minute they got together - and even before then. She's not a well-liked person in the tabloids. Mind you, for all the great things she does, she doesn't help herself sometimes. If you know that the press are out to gun you down, no point handing them round after round of ammunition...

    I guess I'm nearsighted because she got very little coverage here in the states prior to the break up.

    Did they hate Linda too? That's totally news to me although her having been less than a stellar musician was spoken of over here too. There used to be a bad joke here: Question: "Name a dog with wings." Answer: "Linda McCartney" [You didn't hear that from me, BTW.]

    I think careless driving* by the police doesn't equate to an "accident". I have the same problem with other road traffic collisions. They are nearly always someone's fault.

    My daughters's boyfriend had a motorcycle 'incident' yesterday and it was definitely NOT his fault.
    Luckily he wasn't badly hurt, he just has a badly bruised hand.
    Sorry, you two have waylaid me...............this has nothing to do with this thread but I thought it was appropriate to what you were discussing.

    Just want to say: I am not a Beatles fan, and I certainly don’t buy into the whole ‘Saint McCartney’ thing.


    BUT...

    ...I honestly believe that Heather Mills is the scum of the earth.

    Seriously, I feel that strongly about it. She is one of those deplorable people who do charity work – not for the sake of doing a good deed – but for the kudos it brings them. Her veganism is merely an extension of this ‘ooh, get me!’ attitude. If she went about her business quietly, I might believe her when she bleats on about all the all the hard work she does for her ‘charridies’, but the woman complains about the press interest in her, then jumps at any opportunity presented to get her ugly mug on tv! She’s a vain, deluded self-publicist who only cares about animal rights and veganism in as much as it gets her attention. Make no mistake – if she thought that it would make the public love her as much as they love Paul, she would run through times square naked with a fur stole draped around her shoulders eating a ham sandwich.

    I actually remember when the police bike hit her and she lost her leg, it was a reasonably big news story due to the police involvement!
    She was doing quite a bit of aid work for the war in Croatia at the time, it was reported, and then set up an aid charity with the compensation and story money. I just thought then that she didn't need to do that, many wouldn't.
    Then i forgot about her till all the saint Paul s**t!

    I couldn't really give a shit what she does in her personal life - her loss of a leg and love life and divorce are really none of my business.

    I don't bother reading gossip rags either because I'm not really interested in what's printed in there.

    But I am really glad that she's out there working for the animals and bringing veganism into the news :smile:

    You obviously never saw one of the most concentrated PR hate campaigns i've ever seen waged against someone in this country by the 'red tops', i'm actually surprised she survivied it with as few mental problems as she seems to have. Her 'positive' PR spin is nothing in comparison.

    And you could argue that any act is ever so slightly self motivated? Whether for personal gain or just to ease our conscience and guilt?
    Anyway, i think she genuinely believes in what she's doing right now and that is all that really matters. Whether she is still vegan in 10 years time, i have my doubts, but if she's done some good in that time i'll let her off, lol!

    Bloody awful woman! Personally I'm quite embarrassed that she seems to be the public face of veganism in the UK.

    Rightly or wrongly, Mills is arguably the most unpopular woman in the country at the present time, so any AR/vegan campaigns involving her will automatically be dismissed by the vast majority. I struggle to understand why Viva seems to believe that having a public hate figure as their chief celeb spokesperson is going to do them any favours.

    Maybe she's a lovely person who is 100% committed to veganism & won't sell out as soon as the cameras disappear, but if AR groups want to play the media game then they need to wise up.
