Johnny Depp, Amber Heard Divorce

Reports just in say that Johnny Depp and Amber Heard are heading for divorce. In fact, Amber has actually filed for divorce, US time on Monday - around three days ago.

Says a report on TMZ:

Amber Heard has filed for divorce from Johnny Depp ... shockingly 3 days after Johnny's mom died.
Amber filed her divorce petition Monday, citing irreconcilable differences. The couple married in February of last year, yet Amber is asking for spousal support. 
Our sources say the couple had NO prenup.
It's especially harsh because Johnny was extremely close to his mother. She says in the divorce docs that they separated on May 22 ... 2 days after Johnny's mom passed.
As if that's not enough ... Johnny's new movie, "Alice Through the Looking Glass," opens Friday.
This comes just 24 hours after his talk show appearance:

Of course, this:

Novotel Sydney Central: Hotel REVIEW + Vivid Sydney Offer

Josie's Juice was a guest at the fabulous and VERY central Novotel Sydney Central hotel.

You guys, I will confess: I kinda forgot this hotel space was nestled in the busy Broadway precinct 'hood. I am glad I found it again. I will be spruiking it like nobody's business when people ask: where should I stay when I am in town which is smack bang in the middle of the Sydney CBD, but I can still easily access Newtown up the road, Leichhardt further up, and in the other direction, the CBD, George Street, Circular Quay, and more. This place!

The rooms are great for family stays and mini stays, the breakfast is excellent quality with lots of choices, and it's a great spot to launch walking tour of the city from, whether you are a local or an out of towner.

'The Real Housewives of Sydney': Tali Jatali PHOTOS + News

Note to 'The Real Housewives of Sydney' casting folks, who are busy casting Sydney housewives for the upcoming shows: you pretty much havvvve to cast Sydney woman Tali Jatali (she is FAR from the typical 'housewife', but then none of the women on the Real Housewives franchise are).

Here is what Josie's Juice know so far...

Nobody is confirmed yet for the show, despite what you are reading.

There will be six women on the Sydney show.

Sources tell us the casting people for the RHOS (oh my gosh, you guys... first, RHOMelbourne, now RHOSydney) show have been speaking to the women for months, they've certainly been speaking to Tali since last year... but they've also been speaking to a lot of women.

More about Tali Jatali, who is guaranteed to be THE face to watch and listen to if she is cast:

She is mother to her 13 year old daughter, Zsa Zsa.

She is Jewish, and was born in Israel, to Romanian parents.

She does so much more than design bikinis for her successful clothing label (which has a shopfront in Gould Street, Bondi) although she is very good at it.

She is a keen and successful property investor.

Her family migrated to Australia when she was 16, and she was scouted to become a model, but her passion lies in family, fashion, and focusing on her property portfolio.

Her husband Alfie is a successful animator. And is SERIOUS eye candy...

Here are some photos, exclusive to Josie's Juice.

And Tali's new Italian leather jackets, from her Jatali label:
