Bethenny Frankel has launched a stinging attack on Amber Heard amid the ongoing defamation trial against ex-husband Johnny Depp.
The 51-year-old former Real Housewives of New York City star took to her ‘Just B with Bethenny Frankel’ podcast to give her thoughts on the trial.
“Johnny Depp looks like a hero only in a relationship with Amber Heard,” said Frankel.
“Johnny Depp is going to be f***ing anointed Gandhi and the Pope because he was in a relationship with the craziest woman that has walked this planet.”
“I’m sure Queen Elizabeth is calling him being like, ‘Come here, I wanna give you a knighthood because you’re now the hero in this crazy villain story’.”
Bethenny Frankel criticised Johnny Depp too
The businesswoman and philanthropist went on to strongly criticise Johnny Depp.
“Here he looks like a hero because it’s Amber Heard who he is being compared to,” she said.
“Put me next to Shrek! I’ll be co-hosting the Met [Gala] next year with Anna Wintour!”
What stage is the Johnny Depp vs Amber Heard trial at?
The trial has been going on since April 11, over a 2018 Washington Post op-ed in which Heard described herself as a victim of domestic violence.
Although she did not mention Depp by name, the 58-year-old has alleged in court that this piece tarnished his reputation and career.
The court case has featured a number of shocking allegations about the pair’s tumultuous marriage – which lasted from 2015 to 2017.
For example, Depp claimed that Heard once defecated on his bed and severed his finger, while Heard has claimed that he sexually assaulted her with a liquor bottle. Both parties have denied those claims.
The end date for the trial is scheduled May 27, although it could go on for longer, before the verdict is finally given.
