As Labor Day fireworks exploded over East Hampton in September, Nancy Shevell laughed and chatted with her son and husband on the balcony of their $8 million mansion.
To anyone gazing up from the street, the trio was a perfect picture of family bliss. But the end-of-summer fireworks also marked the close of something else: She vell's 23-year marriage to wealthy businessman Bruce Blakeman.
That same evening, just a few feet down the road at Jon Bon Jovi's raucous celebra tion, was Paul McCartney, the man rumored to have stolen She vell's heart. Around another East Hampton corner at another party was McCartney's ex, former model Heather Mills, who was and continues to be embroiled in a nasty divorce from the Beatle.
