Dancing with the Stars: Heather Mills bets on herself
Gambling websites like Bodog.com have been taking bets for some time on whether Heather Mills's leg will "fall off, not be purposely taken off, during a dance routine" during her run on Dancing with the Stars.

But now Mills is so sure her prosthetic leg will stay put that she's placed her own bet.

"I've bet a few hundred dollars it's not going to come off.  So I'll win some money." Mills told Jay Leno on the Tonight Show this week.

After being criticized for her performance as well as hated for her current divorce actions with ex Paul McCartney (who you may notice was never mentioned on the premiere of Dancing with the Stars,) she's no doubt well aware that her audience is watching her and especially her leg closely, saying that she believed "most of the nation was watching to see if my leg would fly off."

However, she's still certain it won't, thanks to the extra strap she wears during her Dancing with the Stars performances. Mills also showed Jay Leno and his audience her ability to do high kicks without losing it. Er, the leg, that is.

"Everyone's betting on it, so I've made a bet too. I think it's funny. It's about having a sense of humor."

Well, her leg might not fall off, but will she be on her game next week as far as the dancing goes? After all, nobody else's leg is going to fly off either. Even if she dances adequately again (i.e. better than a certain Billy Ray "Crazy Bear in a Swamp" Cyrus), she's not exactly popular, so will she be voted off anyway by enraged Beatles fans? Or will America keep her around just to keep watching that leg?
