How grotesque that Dancing With The Stars debuted tonight amid a plethora of distasteful promos wondering if Heather Mills could keep her prosthetic leg on during a high kick. Look, I have no idea why this show attracts an audience beyond mouthbreathers. But the soon-to-be-ex Mrs. Paul McCartney managed to dance the fox-trot without losing her false limb. Judge Bruno Tonioli gushed over Mills, who’s currently among the most hated women in the UK: “You’ve got more guts than Rambo.” She also received praise as an “inspiration to people to get out and dance”. So now everyone please breathe a sigh of relief and turn off the show en masse because this sequin-fest is pure crap. (And I wouldn’t put it past ABC later in the contest to make Mills dislodge her artificial leg as a sweeps stunt.)
