Julia: Live-Action Derek Zoolander

A tipster pointed us to the following (p.s. I'm sorry ... did you say something? It seems my hearing has been affected by the braying):

  3. Who let the braying jackass out of the stable?

  4. "OK, let's check it out so no one (read: I) looks fat". Common issue when you're all about image control and have just expressed no qualms about the photo being posted everywhere, you see?

    woooow juuuust wooooow

  5. It's sad to me that she has such a low opinion of being curvy. She's obviously insecure about not being a size 2. She couldn't be bigger than a size 6 or 8. She has the opportunity to send a positive message to younger women and she blows it be being so obviously unhappy with not being super skinny.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Yep, that's the thing. Never called Julia fat (or even ugly) or even mentioned she'd gained, blahblahblah. Reality is, weight gain happens as your metabolism slows down and you get older, particularly when you're not modifying your lifestyle accordingly to counteract the natural progression of things. But than that's exactly the point SHE ISN'T FAT and yet even being a size 6 or 8 isn't good enough for her. She'll go through the odd period of pretending she's happy with her body, people are ridiculous in their vain expectations, and that statistics show men and women prefer REAL bodies; then goes on to completely skew that with comments about looking fat, NON-tongue-in-cheek swipes about her ass size, etc. If she can't accept her body (her face seems to be the only area she's willing to risk poking and prodding for the sake of improvement) - particularly it being one of the many things in her life that she deems unacceptable - how can she ever truly be as "happy" as she always claims to be?

  7. She's not even a 6 or 8. She's a 2-4. She wouldn't be able to borrow clothing at a 6-8 very often because there are few samples in that range. And, yes, I know this for a fact because my friend has sent her samples of BCBG and Betsy Johnson. He's sent her samples in 2s and 4s. And, yes, this is recent not years ago.

  8. Gee, I wonder why Julia has said body issues. For all the halarity and wit on this site I think it absolutely crossed the line by continualy calling her fat and bloated. It started with RussianGirl calling her Poofy (ie "Why is the poofy one eating again. I not understand.", etc) I admit, I laugh outloud at RussianGirls broken english writing but, honnestly, if this website begins to hammer Julia for feeling insecure about her body and concerned about her weight at a size 6 or 8, it's a joke. Having hundreds of commenters make fun of your eating disorder and rip your body apart from her invisible "cankles" to her "bloated face" and everything in between is enough to make Jessica Alba feel like an elephant. THAT, imo, is the WORST thing about this site. I know not everyone has done it, but the ones that have are relentless.

  9. She wears size 4-8 depending on the cut.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I think she seems nice in this video. Loud and crass? Yes, but still nice.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Who cares is she's a 2-4 or 6-8?? They're all on the smaller side. What the hell is wrong with being a size 6 or 8? God.

    ReplyDelete
  12. There is nothing WRONG with being a size 6 or 8 and she constantly presents through words and actions that there IS, all while touting a BS female esteem-boosting and empowerment agenda. Way to miss the point, though.

  13. Umm, re: Lipdub @ Friend's Wedding

    Can you imagine running off by yourself at a party (I assume she was at a party, given her outfit), to shoot a fucking LIP DUB? Is that not a little weird??

    ReplyDelete
  14. Yea that was akward. The only lipdubs Ive found entertaining are the ones with people doing them in public places bc half the fun is watching strangers "WTF" faces as a singing nutball goes dancing by.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Chill, everyone. I didn't post this to spark a debate on her weight. I thought it was funny because you can see her live-action Blue Steel.

    And almost every woman I know wants to see how the picture/video looks after it's shot to ensure they don't look fat.

    Carry on!

  16. Dahling: Ever weirder, she was at someone's wedding.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Best part?

    Guy (off camera): "Oh my god. Somebody has a real tattoo."

    Jackles: "I know, I know!" Pushes up sleeve, shows tattoo. "You're probably not into it."

    Meghan (off camera): "No one's into it."

    Also? With all that 'Blue Steel' posing, how does anyone take Jackles seriously?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Total Jing, I'm not at all doubting your word, but it is very hard for me to believe that she's smaller than a 10 (which is still smaller than the average American woman). Given her height and what she claims is her weight (not to mention the cupcakes-then-cleanse cycle that has to be fucking up her metabolism in a major way), that just doesn't compute with being a size 2-4.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I am an inch taller than her and weigh five lbs less, and I wear a 2-4. Highly doubt she wears a 10.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I have met her in real life. She has a gigantic backside/thighs, esp compared with the rest of her. Sorry.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Five-four and teeny tiny waist? There's no way she's a 10. I'm five-four and 135 pounds; I swim in a 10 and so must she. I am usually a six and sometimes a four or a eight, depending on the cut.

    But in any event, who cares?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Anon @ 2:53 & 2:54, you're assuming she's telling the truth about her weight. And we all know how often she tells the truth, especially about her fragile sense of herself.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I'm 2:53...
    She might be lying, but she may very well not be. I have a similar frame (kinda bottom heavy) and petite on top and I look very, very similar. Plus, I can usually wear one size smaller if I'm wearing something with an a-line skirt that isn't clingy and I'm sure she can too because those don't have to accommodate her hips and thighs.

    It's really not even worth arguing over, she's a woman with insecurities (as all women are) and even when she's "poofy" as some of you may say, she's still a beautiful girl! Ripping on her for her figure is silly and probably the reason she feels so insecure anyway. But as far as her personality goes, feel free to continue ripping...

    ReplyDelete
  24. Well, her personality in that video is DISGUSTING. She may come across as nice since she didn't tell the girl to fuck off, but she's so into herself. BARFS

    ReplyDelete
  25. This blog was good until 80% of the comments started being about her body.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I'm sorry, but I would KILL to have Julia's body.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Anon @ 2:53/3:10, I think she used to be pretty - until she started injecting all sorts of shit into her face, doing the cupcake-cleanse cycle, keeping strange hours. In an earlier thread, I posted a link to a YouTube of her from just 2 years ago, at the infamous Gawker photoshoot and I commented that she used to be so pretty then.

    She also used to be able to wear the clingy bottoms, instead of the ever-present A-lines.

    Now she looks waxy, old and she dresses like a Loony Tunes character, or even just a plain old caricature.

    I don't think she's fat, but I also don't believe she's tiny. And I sure as hell don't believe that she's telling the truth about her weight. In fact, most women don't, and she's more of a liar than much of the general population.

    As for commenting on her looks, she's the one who has made her physical appearance such a big part of her public image.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Anon @ 3:29, just do the cupcakes-cleanse cycle endlessly, inject toxins into your face, don't exercise, stay up all night and sleep during the day, and pretty soon you may just wind up killing yourself. Or at least your metabolism.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Julia wears a size 2. I returned her Jill Stuart dress and the gown she wore to the Google Inauguration Ball.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I should have refrained from sharing the information regarding her size. I was in no means trying to start a debate. The intent of my comment which was obviously unclear, was that Julia is VERY VERY tiny. I think any comments regarding her weight are hysterical because there has never been an issue there. Of all the problems Ms. Jill from LIU has to deal with, weight is not one of them! If you read my previous comments on this site you'd see that I've either said that I don't participate in weight commentary or that I never commented under any "julia is fat" posts. I've always felt that it doesn't merit a discussion (by the way, I'd feel this way if Yoolia was a size 0 or size 3x). I think that RG's poofy joke is more in relation to the cakey makeup which looks "poofy" on camera at times.

    Anyway, whatevs. I just wanted to make very clear that I was not trying to further any discussion on weight by initiating a numerical size debate.

    ReplyDelete
  31. The ONLY reason I think it's an issue at all is because of the emphasis she puts on her appearance, as it seems to be the only thing she uses to promote her "business."

    She incessantly posts photos of herself and she incessantly sticks her chest out (both in pictures and at every guy she meets) and she blogs about inhaling cupcakes, so she has made it an issue herself.

    I like the "poofy" thing because I think of her as being some sort of marshmallow peep - all sickly sweet, with no substance.

    ReplyDelete
  32. [redacted] NonEntity-Paradigm Shifter!:

    Damn, she really IS like a marshmallow Peep. Lurid color, spongy logic, empty calories and all. I salute you.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I can't believe no one is talking about that pouty face she makes. Hilarious.

    ANd I don't think girlfriend is fat but there is no way in hell she is a size 2.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Someone explain to me WHY this nice young women wanted a photo with JA? did they know eachother?
    Obvs JA is eating up the attention and seems like an Old (!) pro at doing the Zoolander with a Peon Admirer.
    Cringe-able.
    Does she have any answer to "What do you produce besides reams of photos of Self?"
    To my limited viewing knowledge, there has never been an informative post or video about anything besides herself, her friends, and her exploits.... tiresome especially since she's in a very exciting city with many interesting things going on....

    ReplyDelete
  35. I'd like to know why saying she's *GASP* a size 6 is blasphemy, but calling her a whore or slut isn't? The comments about her weight don't faze me in the least considering she's the one who sends the message that anything above a size 4 is bad. The comments implying she had to wear ski pants in Davos because she scraped her knees blowing an exec from Google were ten times more offensive to me.

    She was a size 4 last year. She has said so herself. She has publicly admitted to gaining weight, so a size 6 or 8 sounds reasonable. She and Randi traded dresses for the birthday parties. Randi's dress looked like it was crushing her ribs. MY FRIEND RANDI ZUCKERBERG!!! is no size 2. More like a 4/6 or even 8. If Randi's dress was too tight on her then she's no way in hell a size 2 or 4.


    "I think that RG's poofy joke is more in relation to the cakey makeup which looks "poofy" on camera at times. "

    >This is the height of backpedaling. The poofy comments are obvious digs at her face/bloat. I've never heard of someone's makeup making them look "poofy."

    ReplyDelete
  36. "The comments about her weight don't faze me in the least considering she's the one who sends the message that anything above a size 4 is bad."

    That's recursive. Her sending that message is objectionable, so why should we play into it? And I rarely see her called a whore or slut, although when it does happen it's offensive (in addition to being absurd -- she obviously has big hangups about sex).

    Totally agree on the "poofy" thing though, that was a pretty sad attempt TJ.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Another lip dub posted....the lip dubs are SOOOOOOOO STUPID - what on earth is the point?! jakob's lipdup to 'crazy' on the subway was amusing, Julia Allison's give me second hand embarrasment.

    what ON EARTH is the point?!

  38. Julia is not nor has she ever been "very, very" tiny. Julia has always had an ample ass and thick thighs. That's a GOOD THING. The RG poofy and bloated comments get all kinds of free passes when, if commenting on Julia's weight is "bad," they shouldn't. It's time for a little consistency around here. Who ever RG is, SHE shouldn't be allowed to say some of the things SHE says if others are going to get crapped on for saying something similar.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Go look at RussianGirl's profile shot. It is a parody based on a skinny Russian hooker type, exactly the kind who would call a Western woman who eat cupcakes "pouffy" or fat or chubby or whatever. It's a joke.

    I have never seen Jacy or RBNS, when she was still here, say a word about her weight.

    Just let it go, people, and appreciate that RG is playing a part, isn't she?

    The commenters, I agree, need to just drop the weight issue unless she really starts to resemble Starr Jones pre-stomach staple.

    ReplyDelete
  40. But there is a world of difference between being poofy, which I took to mean looking bloated in the face, and being fat. Bloated face can be caused by a number of things not just weight gain.

    Personally I've felt that RBNS was pushing it with the weight comments for a while. The only major problem I've ever had with Julia is her lack of content, or lack of promised content. As far as I am concerned her weight is off limits for comment.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I love her "Don't Stop Believing" libdub. I probably watch it once a week. The rainy streets, her cute coat & shoes, the lights of NYC--it adds up to awesome.

    That said, I do think she's a cow. Hey, she's in Media in NYC, there's no excuse for being fat when you know you're going to be on TV or photographed at events.

    ReplyDelete
  42. "poofy"
    "sausage fingers"
    References to cupcakes

    If you're going to attack her weight then attack her weight. Don't try to justify it with some lame definition of what's considered parody.

    You can write a bunch of topic changing comments and start new threads all you want so this one doesn't turn in to a flamefest. Talk about a need for transparency, guys.

    ReplyDelete
  43. At the time you wrote this comment, there was a new thread above it. So what would you like us to do?

    I agree the threads get stupid and unnecessarily nasty and totally ridiculous with everyone accusing dissenters of being JA or SM or MR or whomever, but what are you proposing? Should we delete comments? It's a step we are hesitant to take given that was such a complaint about NS.

    We are open to suggestions.

    Personally, I say you leave the comments alone. You guys can fight it out.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Anon @ 6:43, Julia Allison / Julia Baugher is the one who posts often about cupcakes - how many she eats in one sitting, photos of them, her obsession with them. Therefore, I think they are fair game.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I don't think it's so much a problem of her weight, or her being fat, or the weight gain, per se... but more to highlight the STARK CONTRAST of how severely, and quickly that her overall looks have gone downhill.

    She used to be so fresh-faced and a genuinely wholesome (i'm thinking around the time she did the beach photoshoot with Jacob, for example), healthy looking midwestern type girl. Now suddenly she has caked-on tranny makeup, poofy bloated cheeks and a double chin, tired, tired hanging skin around her eyes and of course that telltale WONK, and the obviously altered trout lips.

    What happened to her GLOW? Why does she look so.... rode hard and put away wet?

    The used and abused part of her looks- the fact that she has aged so much in such a short time, and almost now resembles a plastic-surgery gone wrong/tranny hooker, is what intrigues me.

    It's not body snark. It's "what the Gods named happened to you" snark.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Watching Julia and Shirs Lazar put a lot of things in perspective for me. There's this enclave of women in media who try to skate by on their looks and the industry is quickly growing tired of them. Julia managed to make that "panel" about HER and you could hear the way the crowd just started to chit chat over her, ignoring her. I doubt it's a coincidence that Julia's losing favor with this crowd that once embraced her right around the time she started losing her looks.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Actually, I always thought that the Poofy moniker was borne from all those ridiculous poofy skirts and dresses she insists on wearing.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I apologize for causing so much unrest. I had no idea that my comments would stir up anything. This disgusts me.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Ugh the girl looks fine leave her alone. She'll get her desserts in 10 years time when it's all gone and she'll be forced to truly contemplate what she's made of. Half the commenters here are truly no better than she is.

    "Anon" @ 11:32, we'd be more impressed if you could actually name the 1/2 who are "truly no better than she is," as well as those who are totally better than Julia Allison Baugher, and those who are only somewhat better. kthnxbai

  51. Yeeeah, and you really have a ruler for measurement when you consider years of one's existence laid bare and exposed vs. some random anonymous comments on a website. What's funny is everyone here could be WORSE than her and it really wouldn't matter. They aren't the ones trying to impose themselves on people who would rather they just go away, and profit off it too boot.
