Bethenny Frankel calls Amber Heard ‘craziest woman that’s walked this planet’

Bethenny Frankel thinks Amber Heard is “the craziest woman that’s walked this planet.”

The sharp-tongued “Real Housewives of New York City” alum made the loaded statement on Thursday’s episode of her “Just B with Bethenny Frankel” podcast while weighing in on the actress’ ongoing defamation trial against ex-husband Johnny Depp.

“Johnny Depp looks like a hero only in a relationship with Amber Heard,” Frankel, 51, said, joking that the “Pirates of the Caribbean” star “is gonna be f–king anointed Gandhi and the pope” when all is said and done “because he was in a relationship with the craziest woman that’s walked this planet.”

The businesswoman and philanthropist went on, “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.’

“It doesn’t make any sense. Johnny Depp plus anyone besides Amber Heard is a raving, [MDMA], cocaine, s–t-in-bed-tolerating man.

“But here, he looks …” she continued, loudly breaking out into a Mariah Carey song, “‘and then a hero comes along!’ because Amber Heard is who he’s being compared to.”

Frankel ended her rant by shouting, “Put me next to Shrek! … I’ll be co-hosting the Met [Gala] next year with Anna Wintour!”

Depp, 58, has been battling it out with the “Aquaman” star, 36, since April 11 over a 2018 Washington Post op-ed in which she described herself as a victim of domestic violence.

Although she did not mention the “Edward Scissorhands” star by name, he alleged the piece tarnished his reputation and career.

Shocking allegations about the pair’s tumultuous marriage — which lasted from 2015 to 2017 — have been made in court, including Depp’s claims that Heard once defecated on his bed and severed his finger.

Heard, by contrast, has accused Depp of routinely beating her — many times while drunk or high — and sexually assaulting her with a liquor bottle.

Both parties have denied the claims.

Depp’s fans have staunchly defended him throughout the trial, while detractors have used Heard’s alleged borderline personality disorder and histrionic personality disorder diagnoses to undermine her credibility.
