When It’s Time To Stay Silent

Johnny Depp and his camp have only released the one official statement that has now been read by half the globe:

Given the brevity of this marriage and the most recent and tragic loss of his mother, Johnny will not respond to any of the salacious false stories, gossip, misinformation and lies about his personal life. Hopefully, the dissolution of this short marriage will be resolved quickly.”

Throughout the past weeks though Amber Heard and her camp have gone headline crazy with accusations, stories, so called evidence and deranged off the wall accounts of a person that no one would recognize as the Johnny Depp that anyone knows. So the question hangs in the air, why does Johnny and his people continue to let the internet and publications throw around all this dirt and stay quiet? The answer is simple, “Give her enough rope and she’ll hang herself.

The one thing that can be said no matter how much is true on Amber’s fairytale of the past two years is that she reached above her head and climbed up the ladder. An actress who had no great prospects before her film with Johnny, “Rum Diary”. No matter how stunning she may be, Los Angeles is filled with beautiful women who want to be famous. The chance to be the center of THE Johnny Depp’s attention for any amount of time gave her the cracked door that any woman dreams of. This was her chance and she knew it. “With a little bit of faith, trust and pixie dust” she hit the jackpot. Her intentions are hidden to us and so all her forethought planning can’t be known. The only thing we CAN know is that unfortunately for Amber there is a little invention called the internet. The internet, a place where our past can’t be hidden and neither can a person’s life on social media.

So while Johnny goes into his self-healing regrouping with his circle of friends, he leaves Amber and her minions to slowly peel off the layers of her life and her imaginary “nightmare” of being Mrs. Depp. Every day she, her friends and her camp embarrass her more and more all over the public realm. Johnny stays silent while his friends, family and employees speak volumes for him. It may be because she’s new to the public eye and Johnny is a seasoned famous figure who has been known worldwide half his life or she’s just the mentally unstable female. It could be said that inexperience caused a rookie mistake on her part. There have been theories about her stalking Johnny when she was young and even if that isn’t true, one has to wonder if she wasn’t paying attention at all during her time with him. Did she not notice his huge fan base or his lifetime circle of supporters and friends? Was she oblivious to his esteemed reputation? Of course she was, which is why she tried to pull him away from anyone close to him and why she stayed so close to him while he was working. The ingenuity ended there however; Amber must not have thought far enough ahead to realize what she was dealing with throwing out such outlandish allegations. Doctored photos and heat of the moment screaming into a phone doesn’t paint a full picture of a person’s demeanor. The brushstroke of guile doesn’t equal a masterpiece of art. Mid-life crises or not, an infallible point of time unfortunately has befallen this great gift of talent and it will pass. He isn’t scared or stupid; he isn’t depressed or intimidated trust that. Johnny is sagacious and shrewd. He folds his arms quietly and sits back to watch the train wreck. Just like the traffic on the 101, everyone will slow down to gape and stare while at the same time wishing they could just unsee it and look away.

The rope goes thicker and longer and steps can now be heard leading up to the hangman’s noose, not unlike in “Pirates of the Caribbean.” Since this is the REAL world and not the movie set, there will be no dashing pirates launching a last minute escape here for Amber Heard.

Happy Birthday Johnny!!
