Heather Mills may have won some fans on Dancing With the Stars, but she doesn’t think she deserves to be the competition’s ultimate victor.
“I think that Apolo should win,” Mills, referring to Apolo Ohno, told Ryan Seacrest on his radio show Monday. “He has not got any dance experience – I mean, none of us have except Joey [Fatone] – and I think he is just amazing.”
As for why she thinks the contest will pass her by, Mills, 39, said, “Well, I was in the bottom two last week. You never go in the bottom two and then end up in the finals in the history of Dancing with the Stars.”
Asked by Seacrest if being in the bottom two had dampened her spirits, Mills said “not at all.”
“I am amazed that I got this far,” replied Mills. “I expected to go out way long ago. I am just thankful for all of the Americans who have actually voted for me. If I go out [this week] I am totally expecting it, but [partner Jonathan Roberts and I] are going to put on a great performance.”
Seacrest also took the opportunity to ask Mills about the topic du jour: Alec Baldwin’s fiery outburst toward his 11-year-old daughter Ireland, which was captured on a voicemail.
“It is wrong to speak to your daughter like that, but I am not someone to go, ‘Ooh, that is terrible, and we are all perfect, it’s all wonderful,'” said Mills, who has a 2-year-old daughter, Beatrice, and is going through a divorce from the child’s father, Paul McCartney.
“I would never speak to my daughter like that, but what you have got to remember is that his daughter lives with Kim [Basinger, Baldwin’s ex-wife], and we have no idea what goes [on] behind closed doors. I respect Kim, I respect Alec for his incredible Animal Rights Campaign, and we have no idea what’s going on.”
Mills added that she didn’t think Baldwin should be judged on the recording alone. “You know when you love somebody and it is your only child, people lose it. Forgive him. Don’t throw stones at glass houses. We are not here to judge and criticize what other people do unless you are a saint. And none of us are a saint.”
