(Newser) – Heather Mills, fresh from starring in her own divorce-court drama, is back in the limelight already. Having gone bravely before the judge herself and come away with $48 million of Paul McCartney's money, she's about to judge in the upcoming Miss USA pageant. Donny and Marie Osmond will host the pageant, which airs April 11 on NBC.

Other judges include comedian Rob Schneider, actor/musician Joey Fatone, actress Kristian Alfonso, swimmer Amanda Beard, actress Kelly Carlson and football linebacker Shawne Merriman. In addition to her much-covered divorce from McCartney, Mills is a former model, and a recent contestant from Dancing with the Stars.
