The Divorce Song
Divorces in songs, and with celebrities.
There are a lot of great breakup songs, but The Divorce Song by Liz Phair is the best. Go find it. Download it, or buy the CD (Exile in Guyville).
I also like Carole King's It's Too Late; but I want to talk about divorce in the news, not in song.
I heard some DJs talking about how crazy it was that Heather Mills will get $100 million from Sir Paul McCartney. Why?
I ask "Why" for a lot of reasons. First..."why" did Paul marry her? I could tell she was a jerk before he married her. I had met her, and she wasn't pleasant. I had seen her in interviews, and she wasn't nice. His kids hated her, and didn't want him to marry her.
The one thing I DON'T think she is -- a gold digger. She gives most of what she makes to charity. So, Paul can at least comfort himself in the fact that his millions will go to her landmine foundation.
She is saying Paul made fun of her one leg. How can this be true? If he did BEFORE they married, well, why did she marry him? If he did this DURING the marriage, why didn't she leave him, and explain this was the reason? Instead, she says this now, when things are getting ugly, as they always seem do in divorce.
I don't remember the story exactly, but she told of a swim coach abusing her, and a woman came out and said that had really happened to her, not Heather. Heather then settled with this woman for an undisclosed sum of money.
There are many reasons I disliked Howard Stern, but one of the things I did like about the guy was...he stayed married for 20 years and had a civil divorce with no fighting; and realized it was in the best interest of his 3 kids. And, in the best financial interest of he and his wife. He knew she'd get half of everything. So he figured, why give the lawyers a third. He paid a lawyer 10 grand, gave his wife half, and everyone was happy.
Except the laywer.
