Paul McCartney is singing his love songs for a new woman, said the New York Post. McCartney was photographed kissing longtime friend Nancy Shevell last week after a walk on a beach in East Hampton, N.Y., where they both own homes. Shevell, 47, and her husband recently separated, and her relationship with McCartney—now in the midst of a bitter divorce from Heather Mills—soon turned romantic. She is an executive in her wealthy family’s trucking business. “The fact Nancy is successful in her own right makes him feel much more relaxed around her,” a friend of the ex-Beatle told the London Mirror. “He will certainly now only date women who have their own means.”

Britain’s Prince Harry was dumped by his girlfriend last week because he spends too much time partying with his friends. Harry and Chelsy Davy had been dating for three years, since they were both 20. “It’s not an over-for-good situation,” a source told the London Daily Mail. “She feels she needs to carve an identity as her own person rather than Prince Harry’s girlfriend.”

A Catholic priest was arrested last week for stalking late night talk show host Conan O’Brien. The Rev. David Ajemian tried to get into a taping of O’Brien’s show, but was nabbed by security guards who had been warned to keep an eye out for him. Police say Ajemian had been sending threatening letters to O’Brien, his parents, and NBC for more than a year. “Is this the way you treat your most dangerous fans?” he wrote after being turned away from a previous taping. “I want a public confession before I ever consider giving you absolution—or [I want] a spot on your couch.” Ajemian was placed on leave by the Boston Archdiocese and is now in a psychiatric hospital.

Rosie O’Donnell lost a shot at her own MSNBC talk show because she started blabbing about it before negotiations were complete, angering network executives. “We were close to a deal. almost done,” she wrote on her blog. “I let it slip in miami, causing panic on the studio end. well, what can u do… poof. my career as a pundit is over b4 it began.” To justify O’Donnell’s salary demands, MSNBC reportedly was asking her to do a daytime show as well as an evening one, but she didn’t want to work that many hours.
