Kralling On All Fours

There's a story going around the Interweb today about an old photo that has surfaced of one-legged PETA spokeswoman/soon-to-be-the-ex-Mrs.-Paul-McCartney/possible former high-end hooker Heather Mills wearing fur:
Photographs of SIR PAUL McCARTNEY's estranged wife HEATHER MILLS wearing a mink coat have been published by a British newspaper.

Mills, an enthusiastic anti-fur campaigner, is a vocal supporter of animal rights group People for The Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) but was reportedly dropped by the organisation last month (FEB07).

Stills from the video footage - filmed in 1989 at a friend's wedding - printed in the Daily Mirror show Mills sporting a mink coat made from up to 40 of the animals, according to a British Fur Trade expert.

Last year (06), Mills branded British supermodel and former PETA supporter NAOMI CAMPBELL "shallow and hypocritical" for wearing fur.

Which, you know, is pretty funny. But what's even funnier (at least to me) is this next bit:
Mills' sister-in-law DIANA KRALL says, "She really loved that coat. When I see her anti-fur campaigns now, I always chuckle.

"It's laughable that she's called so many celebrities hypocrites. She's styled herself an anti-fur campaigner but was proud to be in her mum's mink."

Why does this tickle my funny bone? Well, when I first read the above I thought to myself, "Hmmmm...Diana Krall is a pretty Canadian jazz singer and pianist married to pale cranky British singer-songwriter Elvis that would mean that either Elvis Costello and Heather Mills are siblings or that Elvis Costello and Paul McCartney are brothers!"

So I looked it up on the ole internets and I think the original article was confusing Diana Krall with Dianna Karmal, who is the sister of Heather Mills' first husband, Alfie Karmal. But this story has spread all over the place really quickly, as is what usually happens on the web.

Somewhere poor Diana Krall, who just had twins recently, is wondering why in the name of sweet, tiny baby Jesus in the mangershe is being hounded by the press asking about Heather Mills' mother's fur coat.

"why in the name of sweet, tiny baby Jesus in the manger"

You, my friend, are a genius!!! I cackled loudly at the office. First interwebs (which is always funny) and then tiny JCs. Good times all around.

Man she can't catch a break, between this and her heavy and bitter split with McCartney. She must really be in the dumps.
