    Post Heather Mills to play Mary Poppins?

    It has been reported Heather Mills , the estranged wife of Sir Paul McCartney, has met with theatre producer Cameron Mackintosh to discuss joining the show later this year.
    Heather, who is set to appear on US TV show Dancing with the Stars, will need to perfect her singing and dancing skills for the role.
    A source told Britain's Daily Star newspaper: "Heather is very, very ambitious. She has no shortage of self-belief and thinks she can tackle the part, even though she has never really had any singing experience. Cameron obviously believes Heather has what it takes."
    Heather - who has to wear a prosthetic limb since losing her left leg below the knee following a road accident in 1993 - has always insisted her disability isn't a barrier to getting what she wants.
    If Heather does win the role - made famous by Julie Andrews, 71, in the much-loved Disney film - she will be performing at New York's Majestic New Amsterdam Theatre.
    A source said: "It'll be a big gamble casting Heather as Mary Poppins. But theatre-goers are bound to be curious to see her flying high above the stage clutching an umbrella."
    Last week, the 39-year-old said it would be "funny" if her false leg falls off while she performs on Dancing with the Stars.
    She said: "I'm quite happy to be thrown around. It's unlikely my leg is going to fly off, although it would be quite funny. I don't want to give anyone in the audience a heart attack."

    Baby, by the time you have kids and they're in school, no one will care about you.

    This could be a first for Cameron Mac, opening and closing nights in the one day. "A big gamble" - how about cluster fuck of epic proportions

    Wow. This should stretch any acting ability she may possess to the absolute limit

    Crap, the UK hates her so she's brings her ass over here. We don't want her, either.

    Go away. Go far, far away. Never be seen or heard from again.

    Thank you from Sir Paul McCartney and aabbcc.

    I think Heather deserves a chance and I am not quick to presume her acting capabilities or lack thereof.

    Is it funny to wonder about and laugh of the irony about a one legged person trying to step on a beatle?

    God I hate this whore. I don't give two shits if she can act, or sing, or dance. And I won't watch anything with her in it.
