Johnny Depp & Vanessa Paradis Splitting -- Let's Protest!


johnny depp vanessa paradisOh no, Johnny, not you too! We were a little bummed to hear about Katy Perry and Russell Brand planning to divorce over the holidays. But now there are rumors that Johnny Depp is "quietly" talking with lawyers about splitting with his partner of 15 years, French actress Vanessa Paradis. Quelle horreur! And also, how quiet is he being if the news has reached the likes of me? I'm not exactly within whispering distance of Johnny and his lawyers. 

Anyway, this is all very upsetting and I desperately hope it's not true. I always thought the couple had the ideal anti-Hollywood relationship. They live in a castle in France, for crying out loud (when they're not hanging out on their own private tropical island), they have two kids, and they've been together for like a century in Actor Years. Can this partnership be saved? Can we stage an intervention? Somebody, quick, get Dr. Phil! We have to fix this!

Un-named sources (our favorite kind, SIGH) told Radar that "Johnny isn't handling anything well right now," and "People around him are worried about how Johnny is doing because he and Vanessa seem so fractured right now. Their relationship is heading toward the end."

Uh-oh, sounds like Johnny has issues. Has stardom finally gone to his head, or is he headed for a breakdown? In every interview I've ever read, Johnny comes off as kind of on the edge -- short attention span, up all night, manic. But hey, we've got resources for that! Dr. Phil has his nifty article, "Marriage Survival Guide for Tough Times." Yeah, can we get them to read that? Or what about 7 Principles for Making a Marriage Work -- my friend says it saved her marriage, seriously. Do you two need me to set an appointment with a great marriage therapist? Because I will do the research and make the phone calls for you. We can work this out, the three of us. I mean -- the two of you. 

Look, I know what it's like to live with a manic creative guy. Okay, my husband isn't a multi-millionaire movie star. But he's brilliant/crazy, and that's, shall we say, challenging for a relationship. Throw in kids and the occasional professional disappointment (no matter how successful you are overall) and life can turn into a roller coaster ride. But second to my own marriage, of course, this is the one relationship I don't want to see go bust.

Would you be sad to see Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis split?

Is it really any of our damn business? Really, just because entertainers jobs are to entertain us, that does not give us the right to be all up in their personal affairs or speculate about  every miniscule detail of their lives.  Are you all up in the details of your doctor, pastor or dentists life?  What if paparazzi started following you around from your job, to the coffee shop, to your driveway? Yes, actors and musicians know that the press comes with such a public profession, but they are entitled to their right to privacy just like anyone else!

Does it....does it mean he's going to be available?

*Quickly calls husband to see if we're still cool on that hypothetical one-night stand with celebrity discussion we had, since he was totally ok with it when he thought I was joking*

Oh well. Good luck to them and their family.

You ladies settle down now.  He's MINE!

And yes, I would be sad to see them split.  I love him and I wish him all the best ... and a marriage ending is not the best (in any circumstance).

The 7 Principles book saved my marriage too. As for Johnny, I mourn any failed marriage. It's never good news when love dies.

Kelticmommy- Relax.  Writing a little blurb about Johnny Depp's impending divorce that will only stimulate about 5 minutes worth of light-hearted chit chat isn't worth shaming someone about.  Nobody cares that much about the topic (except,
