Mccartney: 'Linda Didn't Allow The Media To Spoil Our Marriage'

SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY has praised his late wife LINDA's refusal to court publicity - in stark contrast to the attention-grabbing antics of his subsequent spouse HEATHER MILLS.
In a moving tribute to Linda - who lost her battle with breast cancer 10 years ago this month (17Apr08) - the former Beatles singer has hailed her determination to keep their private life out of the news as one of her greatest assets.
Mills, by contrast, has developed an infamous reputation for dragging intimate details of her private life and marriage to MCCartney into the spotlight, most notably when she launched into a bitter diatribe on British TV show GM:TV last November (07).
The former couple reached a divorce settlement last month (Mar08), when a London court awarded Mills $48.6 million (GBP24.3 million).
Writing about Linda exclusively in British newspaper The Sunday Times, MCCartney says, "She didn't go on TV and say, 'This is who I am - hello,' and try to ingratiate herself. We didn't need to do that - it was our life, not theirs. We were too busy living it.
"When anybody came to the house and met her, they thought she was fantastic. She was just a great person to hang with: very funny, very smart and very talented."

As it should be...I loved Linda ----that Mills creature needs to go back to her porn buddies in the Soviet Union and beyond. No room for the likes of her in our US society......

You know when Sir Paul first married Mills, I gave her a chance because I thought he loved her. but then when I read in the Daily mail she bragged about them making love 4 times a day, I thought Whoo too much information and then i took a dislike of her and she just kept getting worse and worse. She is not in the same class as Linda and I think Paul knew this but was already in it. I'm glad he came to his senses finally and saw her for what she really is. Pure trash.

I too tried to give her a chance in the begining because Paul loved her, so I thought, well, she MUST have "something." She has something alright, a BIG mouth,and NO class. I could go on & on but I won't.Any time they would be on a show together like Larry King or where ever, she NEVER gave you warm fuzzies, always came odd as a B_ _ _ H! She'd talk over Paul & acted as if no one knew anything but HER!! I thought, ugh,I can't imagine what she's like to deal with on a daily basis!!! Her true colors came through alright!

Linda truly did have class. She, unlike Mills, understood the value of marriage and family. Of course she wouldn't want the media to desecrate what they had! My thoughts are definitely with the family during this anniversary of her death. May we all remember her and continue to celebrate her life.
