Blind Items Revealed

August 27, 2013

This B-/C+ list mostly movie actress is being accused of getting her mid-teens, future step-daughter hooked on cigarettes. The actress doesn't think it's a big deal because she started when she was 13 and says it helps keep you skinny which is what is most important. The actress mom of the daughter doesn't agree, although she is a chain smoker too so, who knows who is at fault.

Amber Heard/Lily Rose Depp/Vanessa Paradis

My dad was 300lbs and smoked 2 packs a day. So there goes your theory.

Derek Harvey said...

disgusting

Topper Madison said...

Doesn't her dad smoke, too?

sandybrook said...

Oh goody teens smoking ciggies, how horrible (if somewhat illegal these days). Quell horror just to be French about it.

Renoblondee said...

It's surprising that almost all of Hollywood smoke.

surfer said...

How convenient - blame it on the fiancee, when both parents smoke. Sounds to me like Vanessa is still hurt and lashing out.

Snit said...

Yeah...it's sad if the girl is smoking but with or without Amber in the picture, it isn't exactly shocking since Johnny smokes like a chimney. If Vanessa smokes, too, well...they're all setting the wrong example; blame should be shared.

She's probably going to die of secondhand smoke anyway, after being surrounded by all those smokers

Seven of Eleven said...

It happens.

sandybrook said...

Leave my sainted JLaw out of this @7! :(

CocoaBeachBunny said...

Damn, @Step! Two negative posts in a row - you must be tired ;-)

LottaColada said...

@Step, let's leave hypothetical death scenarios to enty and his March Madness Death Pool.

I smoked from age 14 - 24. Quitting cigarettes cold turkey is one of the things I am most proud of, to this day, I have never cheated, not even a single drag. I used to say that quitting smoking completely ruined drinking for me. I used to be a big drinker, but realized I could not get crazy without an overwhelming urge to smoke. (Of course that was back in the days when you could smoke in the bars & that was TORTURE!) I am now 37, and still crave cigarettes everytime I have more than a drink or two, and that is after being nicotine free for 13 years. : /

CocoaBeachBunny said...

Comment, I meant. Damn, I'm tired too.

Derek Harvey said...

Mama----good for you! I smoke and have cut-down but cant seem to quit completely. It is a miserable habit and wish I could.

~~Stepforded~~ said...

Meh

Mama Ray said...

@Derek Harvey: Most my friends went the "I only smoke when I drink" route, but they ALL still smoke this many years later. I knew for me, I LOVED smoking. LOVED every cigarette. Part time smoking wouldn't work for me, as once I broke, I knew I'd easily convince myself to give in again... On my worst nights the first few months, I'd seriously ask someone to just blow smoke my direction... also replaced smoking cigarettes with smoking joints when the need got too bad... Good luck my friend!

~~Stepforded~~ said...

You say negative; I say keeping it real :-)

LetLoveRule said...

I agree that the parents are setting a poor example, but if Heard is actually giving the girl cigarettes and acting like it's cool to take a smoke break together, that's on another level, in my opinion.

I don't smoke, but if I did, I would be telling my kids they don't get to make that decision until they are of legal age, if ever. In the meantime, of course, I would be actively trying to quit and providing anti-tobacco education to them.

LottaColada said...

@step, sweet.

~~Stepforded~~ said...

I honestly don't know how people can afford to have a smoking habit, especially where I live. I was behind a woman at the supermarket the other day and she bought a small packet of tobacco. Price: $55.00 (!!!!). By way of comparison, you could buy two very nice bottles of Chardonnay for that.

Tina Mallette said...

I really think every teenager needs to hang out with emphysema patients - not a one time thing but over several visits. I never smoked because the anti smoking campaign had just started in school, on TV, everywhere so I paid attention, even though my parents smoked. I found the smoke annoying and a picture of a smoker's lung in high school still haunts my brain. Though they need to show us clogged arteries now and how all elements of lifestyle impacts your odds of getting Alzheimer. A couple of visits to a nursing home when I was a teenager would have changed a lot of things I did or did not do.

Claudea said...

Nice one @Lotta :))

Anothergrayhare said...

Agree with Tina, watching my beloved grandfather confined to a wheelchair, hold a cigarette in his nicotine stained, nearly paralyzed hand after 3 strokes and 3 heart attacks put me off completely as a teenager. He was 61, which I thought was ancient, but was dying and still couldn't quit. I still miss him.

Leekalicious said...

Encouraging a kid to smoke is just wrong. Who the hell does she think she is?

Cindy said...

Next thing ya know they will be scissoring.

LottaColada said...

@Claudea, =)

It os a lifelong addiction worh severe health consequences. Horror, nonironic, yes.

NomNom83 said...

Ha! As if Johnny and Vanessa aren't sucking down a carton a day between the two of them. Blame it on the new gf all you want, honey, but this was inevitable.

fancyscreenname said...

When two parents smoke it's almost assured the kiddies will. BUT, perhaps the teen was not smoking then started and when Vanessa inquired said something like "well, amber says it okay". Which would inspire all types of hell, fire and brimstone from most ex wives. Not gonna judge Vanessa.

Is it: hell, fire and brimstone OR hell fire and brimstone? I've never actually written the phrase, only said it. Now I'm curious.

Henriette said...

What can you expect when the parents smoke right in your face. It's a clear sign that it's an acceptable habit, so Vanessa is being stupid and should quit herself with Dipp.

LowKey said...

I've always seen it written as "hellfire and brimstone".

PS said...

Why is the father's future-wife getting the blame? Does she spend more time and have more influence than the parents? Is she the primary all of a sudden, when she is more akin to an older step sister than mother figure? I I hardly doubt Amber is "parenting" Lily or even with her solo all that much. If Lily has developed a bad habit, not to mention an illegal one, then it's the parents' responsibility, not the father's girlfriend. The girl isn't old enough to buy cigarettes nor drive herself to a store to get them. Of course teens can be resourceful, but, not unless the parents are turning a blind eye or off their game. And, part of being on game is setting the right example and not being a hypocrit. Vanessa and Johnny are both chimneys, who glamorize their styles. Its far more rare off springs of such don't do the same.

Unknown said...

It's actually fairly common for the children of smokers to NOT smoke, at least as far as I've seen. It's as if they've had years of aversion therapy against the habit. It's also fairly common for smokers to regret ever having started and that might be the message that the kids have been getting.

Back when I was a teen, smoking was portrayed as "cool". There isn't a teenager in the world who thinks their parents are "cool", but the new, young, Mustang driving, gun toting girlfriend probably looks that way. So if she's encouraging Lily Rose to smoke and providing her with cigarettes, that's really not ok.

And Depp, sorry but what kind of a father doesn't step in and put an end to this? I don't know a single smoker who actually wants their kids to take up the habit.

Gross

I've always written it as Anna Wintour.

TLP said...

The French have a very different view of smoking. They don't see a problem. Regardless, it's as hard for both Johnny and Vanessa to say "do as I say not as I do" as it is for any parent out there. They generally want better for their kids and don't want their kids to get into something that could be difficult to quit

TLP said...

Like Mama, I am a former smoker. Grew up in the Midwest in a tobacco state. Was smoking at 15 and frankly, was a little older than my peers. But at 30 I realized I had been smoking half my life and was disgusted. That disgust led me to put out the cigarette I was smoking and say "that was the last cigarette I will ever smoke". And it was.

Like Mama, I also consider it the best decision I could have made for myself. 15 years later, a kid from my hometown died of multiple cancers that have smoking as potential causes. He smoked for 33 years, to the bitter end. Made me so sad. Could have been me had I not decided that my hate of being controlled by nicotine was stronger than my addiction to nicotine.

FYI- cold turkey was easier than I thought. I was seriously happy to be done. The withdrawl is only 72 hours and the rest is 100% behavioral and psyhological. For those of you who want to quit- good for you! Even if you slip up, you've still given your body a break and done a good thing.
