Tayna Milner, meet Heather Mills. You two gold-digging gold diggers seem to have a lot in common.

You’re each trying to take hard-earned money from a pair of the most respected celebirites in the world. For Mills, it’s Paul McCartney.

For Milner, it’s Oprah Winfrey. She’s alleging she was injured in a rush for seats during a taping of the talk show host’s syndicated TV show.

Claiming she was pushed down stairs between a waiting area and audience seating at Harpo Studios on April 11, Milner is seeking $50,000 in damages. It must’ve been some bump on the knee.

The lawsuit accuses the studio in Chicago’s West Loop neighborhood of failing to properly control the crowd. Seems about as reasonable to us as the claim that Britney Spears simply fell asleep on New Year’s Eve.

Phone messages seeking comment were left Thursday night for Milner’s attorney, Joseph Curcio, and Harpo Studios.

Meanwhile, we wonder if The View will encounted such rabid fans now that Sherri Sheperd has joined the program. Tune in and find out.
