Depp-osition, take 2

Ah, THAT’S why Amber Heard’s ‘damning’ video hit the airwaves. She was finally forced to give a deposition. She got out of it last week by having a meltdown, but this past Saturday, Heard finally had to sit in that hot-seat and answer direct questions.

Transcripts haven’t been released, but according to sources, she was grilled pretty hard with  questions about why nobody – including 2 cops 5 concierges, several bodyguards and every other tenant in the building – didn’t see a single mark on her after she accused Johnny Depp of abusing her. Not so much as smudged mascara, let alone evidence of his horrendous abuse.

Her answer?

Reportedly, she continues to insist that she was injured, and couldn’t account for what others saw.

Really? What is she, five years old? Insisting that there are monsters under the bed even though the light’s been turned on? Even though a MYRIAD of witnesses saw her without bruises, including the same day, before and after she showed up in court with a shiner.

No wonder that video got leaked when it did. Heard needed something to make Johnny look like a monster, since she couldn’t convince anybody with her own lame testimony and lack of a single shred of tangible proof.

Well, if that video is the best she’s got, she really is out of gas.

People who saw the whole video are willing to testify that only heavily edited parts of it got leaked. What we didn’t see was even more footage of Heard prodding Johnny, baiting and antagonizing him.

We did see enough of that, though. Her interjecting leading comments and hiding the phone, showing her deviously baiting him and filming him without his knowledge – which could get her charged in California, a 2-party consent state. It’s illegal to record a private conversation with somebody without their knowledge and consent, especially when there’s a reasonable expectation of privacy – like in their own home.

Personally, I hope they throw the book at her.

At least for this deposition, she managed to show up on time. Still donning her shool-marm-at-a-funeral costume, I see.

What is it with her and those fugly black shoes?
Big news: Her arrival sparked a media scrum as onlookers and media jostled for a glimpse of the actressWe KNOW she owns more shoes than that. Do these have some sentimental value? They’re the same ones she wore to have lunch with her wife. Yes, I said WIFE. Heard and Tasya Van Ree entered into a legally binding domestic partnership that was never dissolved. The two are still very much married, as such. Is it Heard’s way of sending a message of love and solidarity to her beloved wife? Carol Burnett tugged her ear. Some people blow kisses. Maybe Heard’s way to tell her wife that she loves her at a glance is to plod around in those butt-ugly chunk-heel mules.

And what’s up with those fresh bruises on her arm?
no titleIs she going to try to blame Johnny for those, too? Or does she have another mark lined up to blame for those? Billionaire Elon Musk, maybe? Could she be setting him up from the start with bruises seen the world over during her messy divorce from Johnny Depp?

If the payday from a measly millionaire isn’t satisfying enough, maybe setting up a billionaire will pay better.

Good luck with that.

Amber Heard, too little, too late

Amber Heard showed up more than an hour late for her deposition in her case against estranged Johnny Depp. Maybe she caught wind of the juggernaut team of attorneys waiting for her. Maybe she needed a little extra time to scrub her glamour-puss. Maybe she needed the time to paint on fresh bruises. Maybe she couldn’t bother to get out of bed-whoever’s sharing it with her these days.

Heard has delayed giving her deposition as long as she could, citing conflicts with her work schedule. Finally, though, she had to climb in the hot seat.
But not on time.

Evidently, Miss Thang seems to think that the entire world, including the legal system, revolves around her. She showed up more than an hour late, sporting her customary schoolmarm-at-a-funeral garb (including the same ugly black shoes she wore to meet with her wife recently) and lack of glamour grooming. Every trying to appear as the poor put-upon victim, purposely rolling up her sleeve to draw attention to fresh bruises on her arm.
Dressing down: She wore a white blouse buttoned up to her neck, an ankle-length black skirt and peep-toe shoes for the deposition
If you watch the first video of Heard arriving (late) at the deposition on the Daily Mail UK site, you’ll see that she does her best to keep up the somber victim act. But, poor actress that she is, she drops the facade and smirks when one of the photogs asks her “How do you feel about the people that don’t believe that Johnny beat you?” Her expression is snarky an vindictive, not sad and hurt, as a true victim would be. Rather, she betrays herself as being childish and vengeful, seeming to express that she’ll show them, and Johnny, and their little dog, too.

Look for the  question and the smirk at about the 25 second mark.
It looks something like this:

In my opinion, nothing about her backs up her claims of being abused. It seems, instead, like she’s the abusive one, manipulative and greedy. For Johnny’s money, for sympathy, and for whatever attention she can get.

Is she going to blame Johnny for those marks on her arm, too? Or is she going after some new sucker? Watch out Elon Musk. If she’ll do it to Johnny, she’ll do it to you, too.
Or maybe these bruises come from tussling with her wife. Heard was arrested for hitting wife Tasya Van Ree in the past. Maybe they just like it rough.

There’s no word yet on what was said or settled at the deposition. When it comes to light, I’ll doubtless have something to say about it.

Heard running out of road

Amber Heard is complaining that Johnny Depp is trying to stall the divorce proceedings. She and her lawyer have filed court documents this week alleging that the Pirates star is delaying the inevitable.

The reason she’s complaining?  Because Depp has requested court ordered non-disclosure on every aspect of the proceedings, meaning that Heard can’t flap her gums about Johnny’s finances, any documents filed during the divorce, and how much she does (or doesn’t) get out of him. And if she does leak anything, she’ll face a %100,000 fine for each incident. That means that she can’t “leak” any information to the process without having it hit her where she lives: in the wallet. No more pissing and moaning about him in the press to garner sympathy and jockey for a higher payday, or it’ll cost her.

Personally, I think that’s a smart move on Depp’s part.

What I really think is bothering Heard is that she’s about to be deposed. She’ll finally have to back up her accusations that Depp physically abused her. Until now, she’s been able to get by with dubious photos of (possibly) painted-on bruises, emotionally manipulated testimony from people that weren’t even there, and just because she said so. Now, she’ll be forced to put up or shut up.

While Heard complains that Depp is stalling for time, Heard herself has delayed having to give her deposition more than once by sniggling over paperwork and then by claiming that she can’t be deposed because it would conflict with her work schedule.
Sooner or later, though, she’s going to run out of ways to put it off. Much as she’d like to get everything her way, she’s eventually going to have to give that deposition, and she’s going to have to prove her allegations.

Like with any fraud that’s forced to substantiate their fabricated accusations, I don’t think she’ll be able to prove Jack Squat. My money says that she’ll demur, abandoning the allegations, claiming:
1) that she just wants it over with
2) that it’s too painful to revisit
3) that she doesn’t want to damage his career because she still cares about him
4) that some kind of technical difficulty occurred and the proof is gone

or, like most con artists, by trying to redirect attention somewhere else. I wouldn’t put it past her to come up with some new injury to get out of it. Some dramatic new illness, like fainting from starving herself (the DRAMA!)
Or a traffic accident (PITY PARTY!)
Or a stalker that forces her to hide out, or even attacks her ( the HORROR!)
presenting herself as a(n ongoing) victim to dodge the fact that she doesn’t have any proof to offer to back up her allegations. Playing the victim to avoid proving that she’s a victim.

We’ve seen the type before, haven’t we? Smoke and mirrors when facts are called for.

I’m sitting here with a tub of popcorn waiting to see what she comes up with to get out of it. She’s got a flair for the pitifully dramatic, but she hasn’t exactly displayed a dazzling gift for imagination or execution. So far, everything she’s tried  has fallen flat. Screaming “Stop hitting me!” when he’s nowhere near her. Claiming that he hit her and tore up the house, while first responders don’t find any evidence of injury or struggle. Not a rocket scientist, she.

As of right now, her deposition is set for the weekend of August 6th. We’ll just have to see what she comes up with to get out of it.

Whatever she cooks up, I’m sure it’ll be amusing in a train wreck kind of way.

Even more amusing would be if she can’t put it off anymore, can’t back up her claims, and gets yanked back on her chain for it. I would LOVE to see her charged with filing a false report, lying to the police, wasting first responders’ time and resources. And I’d love to see her slapped with defamation charges. Scamming gold-digger, meet Karma.

I’ll be over here like:
