Yesterday, we mourned the split of Johnny Depp and his longtime ladylove and mother of his two young children, Vanessa Paradis. Well, we've grieved long enough. Let's move on to gossiping about whom he might be dating! Today, a whole 24 hours later, rumor has it that Johnny is seeing Amber Heard, his co-star from The Rum Diary. Amber Heard is hot, young, blonde, and ... bisexual! Oh lawdies, where are my smelling salts?!
Last year, Amber had a girlfriend, a professional photographer named Tasya van Ree. Amber came out as a lesbian, telling gay-oriented site AfterEllen:
You can’t respect yourself if you’re afraid to be who you are. It requires bravery to do something no one else around you is doing. But the risk was outweighed by the possibility of playing into this horribly detrimental lie that some in Hollywood perpetuate.
So could Amber be batting for the other team now? Who knows. Until Johnny and Amber say they're in a relationship, it's all just speculation.
But as for Johnny -- or anyone -- being in a relationship with a bisexual, I say it does contain some added element of uncertainty. Every relationship has some uncertainty, but for myself, I would really have to think long and hard about becoming romantically involved with someone who is attracted to both sexes. I think it would be difficult to physically and emotionally fulfill someone who had a jones for the same sex. There's just a whole other dimension of attraction there that I'm not ever going to be able to remotely live up to.
That said, relationships are full of all kinds of "what if?"s and nothing is ever guaranteed. Plus, sometimes it works out just fine. Let's remember Angelina Jolie is (was?) bisexual and she and Brad are still going strong.
Would you have a relationship with a bisexual?
