, having herself just emerged from a courtroom drama, will now be doing some judging of her own. According to
, the former
Dancing with the Stars
contender has been booked as a judge for the the Miss USA pageant, to be held April 11 in Las Vegas.
This news comes on the heels of Mills' divorce settlement, in which her ex, Sir Paul McCartney, was ordered to pay her $48.7 million. At the close of the hearing, Mills approached McCartney's table, said, "I'm not a loser," and then dumped a jug of water on his lawyer's head.
The case's judge, meanwhile, criticized Mills' performance during the trial. "The husband's evidence was... balanced," Judge Hugh Bennett said, per court documents. "I cannot say the same about the wife's evidence."
"Having watched and listened to her," Bennett continued, "I am driven to the conclusion that much of her evidence, both written and oral, was not just inconsistent and inaccurate but also less than candid. Overall she was a less than impressive witness."
Mills, one would hope, will be more impressive in her Miss USA duties. Joining her at the pageant will be fellow
and her brother,
, as hosts. The duo will also perform at the event.
How do you think Mills will fare as a pageant judge? Will you tune in to see Donny and Marie?
