Most of the time when people get invited to a charity event as a speaker, your remarks are about the issues facing that particular charity. Maybe you throw in a plea for money or how the charity has affected your life or someone you know. Whatever. But, what you don't usually see is the speaker using the podium to complain about their divorce settlement.
Then again, most people are not Heather Mills. Speaking at an event for the vegetarian charity, Viva, Heather didn't talk about whatever issues are effecting the vegetarians of the world. Actually I have no real idea what Viva does and who they do it to. I do know that Heather was a speaker at the event and she gets as much as $100K for giving a speech. OK wait. Seriously? She gets 100K? For one speech? She gets paid more for a 45 minute speech than most people make in a year? There is something seriously wrong with that. If my favorite charity invited her or spent money on her I would never send them another check.
Is there anyone in the world who would pay her that much? Obviously the answer is yes, but those people must have lost touch with reality or something. Well for this fee, Heather decided to wax poetic about her divorce.
"I got five per cent of what we earned together in seven years. And we earned it together; I worked my butt off doing the tours and everything."
Did she say that she did the tours? So, she made a few phone calls and she gets half? She says she got 5% of what Paul earned over seven years. My math is a little fuzzy and all, but she got about $34M which means she thinks Paul earned $680M in the 7 years they were married. Umm, not even close, but thanks for playing. I really can't stand her.
