She's Got The Juicy Scoop! Comedian Heather McDonald Gives Her Hot Takes On Johnny Depp & Amber Heard Legal Drama, Kravis Wedding & More!
Heather McDonald always has the hottest takes on pop culture.
The stand up comedian and "Juicy Scoop" podcast host chatted exclusively with OK! about the never ending court battle between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard, Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker's Italian wedding and of course...Housewives!
"I think the biggest thing is, they were absolutely awful for each other," McDonald says of her take on Depp and Heard's relationship. "At the same time, he fell for a girl that was young, beautiful, manipulative and probably super sexual. She loved bombed him. I think they probably loved bombed each other."
"When it started to get ugly, they both seemed to have had a very ugly side," the Chelsea Lately alum notes. "The focus [should be] on the power dynamic of what such a richer, older, more established, powerful Hollywood person that he was over her."

According to McDonald, the main point of the $50 million lawsuit may be getting lost in the public's fascination. "They're [the public] just thinking, did she lie? Was Johnny Depp just a fun drunk? Did he hit her? There's also just too much evidence to say that she's a weirdo and she's lying."
"I think when the jury actually goes into the room to deliberate, they're really gonna have to focus on was this defamation and should either of them be granted any money for it," she dishes.
Another huge pop culture event, which went down in Italy last weekend, was the lavish Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker wedding. However, many familiar faces in the family like Caitlyn Jenner, appeared to be missing from the romantic ceremony. According to McDonald, it probably wasn't personal.

"I think Kourtney's 43," she says. "She's doing what the f**k she wants. She's been kind of sharing that feeling with her family throughout the last few years."
"She said she didn't like doing the show anymore and things like that, so she probably was like, 'I'm doing my wedding, exactly how I want and I'm not gonna be bullied into inviting people," she continues, also noting how hard it is for older people to get around the port city of Portofino.

"I think every bride should honestly be like this," McDonald continues. "I don't think people should be bullied into having people at their wedding that they don't feel necessary having there."
The funny lady has been known to be a walking encyclopedia of The Real Housewives and says the current season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is keeping her fully entertained — especially break out star Sutton Stracke. "Beverly Hills has always been my favorite," she dishes.
"And then you get someone like Sutton, who's always been really rich and somewhat entitled and now she's famous," McDonald says. "So it's like, how is she gonna change? Or how are they gonna perceive that she's changed because they've all [the cast] been in the game a really long time. So they're really kind of coming after her."
The comedy star, who will play two live shows at the Blue Note Napa on Friday June 17th, goes on to say about the southern born housewife, "I think this is her season for people to be like, 'She is f**king weird,'" but McDonald adds, "I thought she saved herself a little bit where she was like, 'I do say weird and awkward things."
