UPDATE: Julia -- Success Twit!!

  1. BIG ANNOUNCEMENT!!!!!! TMIweekly was picked up by NBC's new channel: New York NonStop. We're airing 6x/day, 7x/week - that's 168 TMIs/month!


All righty then. So now I guess we are to assume that someone wanted no part of this new venture, which explains the "I thought we were all in this together" Tweet.

It must be Meghan.

UPDATE: More Twit information:

@rbillow - No, NBC has 20 TMI evergreens in the can, and we'll film at least 8 new eps a month (maybe 10), for next six months. SO excited!!

  1. The content was bought from NNN. That's it.

  2. I don't know, Jackles is the only on in NY right now. Either or both of her sidetwits could have wised up.

  3. So apparently TMI isn't going down the crapper.

    ReplyDelete
  4. I seriously don't understand. How the FUCK are they going to produce new TMIs if they have barely produced 1 good one?

    ReplyDelete
  5. Only ONE.

    *Sorry, Mary is proofreading my posts today.*

  6. It's like NY1 with 5-10 minute lifestyle segments between the news. TMI will repeat throughout the day. Not exactly glamour and obv, either MA or MR may not want to be involved. JA will try to rope them back in, though. Will MA or MR be strong enough to resist? That's the question.

    ReplyDelete
  7. I meant to say that obviously MA or MR is not sure they want to be involved.

    ReplyDelete
  8. I seriously want to stage a protest.

    ReplyDelete
  9. I fucking hate NonSociety.

  10. It will never fly the do not have the work ethic to even produce one TMI weekly on time

    And remember the Bravo announcement..this Ja always announces things before they are signed..never after they are signed..

    If was true NNN will be the first to announce it not JA..:)

  12. So I had thought this change would mean no web presence for TMI Weekly but anon in the other thread said NY Non Stop also put content on the web. It's not really that prestigious though surely...doing tiny TV segments? Toolia probably sees this as her one-way ticket to becoming the White Oprah though.
    Noticed neither MR or MA have Twittered it yet.

  13. She's trying so hard to be cute and desirable with those bangs. Remember her Zooey post? "MEN LIKE THIS STUFF!" ...."I SHOULD DO IT TOO SINCE MY WHOLE LIFE IS ABOUT MEN"

    ReplyDelete
  14. OMG. Faux bangs are back! And she's cuddling with her bwankie. Boolia and bwankie sitting in a tree! Sorry, I could not stop myself. I think those are the same faux bang extensions she put in her hair for a bit over the summer.

  15. **Breaking News: NNN sold the already taped TMI episodes in an attempt to break even since they lost so much $ with NS. New content has not been mentioned in the deal. They remain inventory for love, and filler for a pseudo tv business. Woop, woop. Pathetic.

    ReplyDelete
  16. If this deal was in the making, then Mary and Meghan chose a curious time to take their little sabbaticals. You'd think that , if TMI was being considered for a show on an NBC cable channel, that Megan and most definitely Mary would grin and bare it and stick it out and/or at least stay in town in case meetings come up. This is way too out of left field. I don't think NBC or anybody is paying these women to produce a show. No way. I think they bought the old episodes from NN to use as filler content until they get actual programming.

  17. Where did you get the info 6:28? I'd LOOOOOVE to believe that is case.

    ReplyDelete
  18. So Julia Baugher announces a huge downgrade in her "career" and debuts bangs all in one day (and sweetly reminds us she's sitting around her apartment in a blanket in the late afternoon.) I think I have the vapors. Pass some smelling salts. It it truly a huge day in her faaaaaabulous and glamorous life. In fact... what was that rumble I just felt under my chair? Did a paradigm just shift?

    ReplyDelete
  19. The new screen cap from TMI Weekly on Julia's NS page is hilarious - JA's bewbs struggling to remain contained in her dangerously low cut dress and the guest Susan McPherson can't keep her eyes off them.
    P.s. anyone got that link to JAs feed on Facebook?

  21. It doesn't have the most recent posts.

  22. ew, in that sreenshot EVERYBODY is curiously eyeing JA's cleavage as if it was to attack them.

    whoever borrowed me proof reading mary, please take her back

    ReplyDelete
  24. Also, NO MAKE UP!

    HAHAHAHA. It is obvious Jackles cannot tear herself away from RBNS.

    Also, why the hell is she obscuring her face like that?

    ReplyDelete
  25. Because she needs makeup, SomeProblems.

    ReplyDelete
  26. They got DUMPED from TivoCast, which Jackles didn't even mention. It won't be long before they get DUMPED from this new thing, too.

    There are plenty of others out there (actual experts with careers) who are producing much more interesting and intelligent mini-shows. TMI just happens to be cheap and ready to go, so it's an easy way to fill time for this startup channel. It's the TV equivalent of Time Out New York.

    Nobody watched them on TiVoCast because it was a pay service. If you happen to be a cable subscriber to a provider that has this NY Nonstop channel, you'll get it for free. Whoopteedoo.

  27. It's not even as "prestigious" as being on the Weather Channel, because it's only local. It's one rung up the ladder from that tourism channel you only see in your hotel room.

    Still, this makes me sick. Tom O'Brien, you must have been dropped on your head as a child. Repeatedly.

    ReplyDelete
  28. After further reflection (and dinner with a person who has the good sense never to have heard of JA) I can imagine how her warped little mind is spinning this out as a positive. I guarantee you she's telling herself that this is her chance to reach a wider audience and be embraced as the NY lifestyle guru she's always believed herself to be.

    Good luck with that, Cupfake.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Cupfake, oh my god, that was a good one!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Okay. I will just say what we are all feeling. We are disappointed that a stroke of good luck went there way. Yes, we can poo-poo the fact that this is a local station, that it has a limited audience, but the fact is, this is just ONE STEP CLOSER to an actual, larger public.

    Please. Can we step up the undermining. Let's thwart these bitches.

    It continues to shock me that her many, many enemies and frenemies don't dish about her here.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Well, it aint Bravo, that's for sure.

    Still, she's got that VH1 thing for the next 3 to 5 years, right.

    (I wish I knew how to type the hysterical laughter I'm experiencing right now.)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Dahling, you're so right. I am incredibly disappointed and frustrated that she has found another way to get her fugly mug on TV. God dammit!!!!!

    Denigrating the channel helps a little, though. But still, WHAT THE BLUE FLIPPING HELL??

    We all know damn well there are women out there who are better educated, who work harder, and who actually care about writing and reporting. They would do a much better job and they would kill for the opportunity to show their talents. However, while they were busy perfecting their knowledge and skills, Jackles was busy perfecting her fameball-ism. Tits triumph over wits every fucking time.

    Fucking hell!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Eh. I'm just not feeling the rage. It's like being jealous of her going to Davos. Sure she got to go... but look at how she got there and what an ass clown she made of herself while there. Just another opportunity for her to fall flat on her botoxed face.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Here's a big ol' FUCK YOU to every media outlet that gives this worthless bitch a job.

    Oh, she's controversial, so people pay attention to her. NO, FUCKERS, you shove her down our throats, we scream at you to stop, and to you, that strong reaction equals popularity.

    Holy shit, there is no way to stop this crazy train. The track runs in a circle.

    ReplyDelete
  35. But James, her whole life is about falling flat on her botoxed face. Everything she touches is a failure, yet she keeps getting work.

    Maybe she was such a cuntrag in her last life, that she has to atone for it in this one by being a publicly humiliated dancing monkey.

    James, no offense, but I don't think a man could understand why Jackles inspires this kind of rage.

  37. I'm clearly with team angry here - this is kathy lee gifford over and over again.

  38. Hey Woman on the edge

    he called her an ass clown-- I say that is pretty understanding.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I'm not a man. James is my last name.

    But at the end of the day... why be jealous of her? What does she have besides being on TV? And to me, being on TV does not equal success. She has no friends. Very little money. No successful relationships.

    I live in the middle of nowhere and have a pretty boring copy writing job, but I have a wonderful husband, make and save money, own a pretty house, travel and have wonderful friends. I sleep at night. I don't hate my body. I have self respect. That's worth so much more than small time fame, best friends that I back stab, desperately glomming onto "big name" friends/hangers on and going on trips to conferences where I don't belong.

    ReplyDelete
  40. We're pissed because she gets where she is by flashing her tits. She keeps setting women back and is completely oblivious.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Sorry to be repetitive, but I don't see the point in getting upset at this supposed deal she announced. Someone said in the newest thread that the deal did not include or ask for new content to be produced. So the TMI episodes are basically just being recycled to a new channel as filler. They're not making her any kind of TV host.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Don't be outraged.

    The NBC Deal does not mean that NBC respects Julia Allison's work.

    The NBC Deal does, I think, mean that NBC wanted readily-available, inexpensive content on a short-term basis in order to fill space until the studio-produced filler takes its place.

  44. I'm sorry, I'm not just being a "hater" but TMI is the biggest piece of crap ever. It would be so much better with just a few simple changes. Primarily:

    1. Not have everyone squished together on a crappy futon.
    2. Meghan and JA would stop looking at the camera every 20 seconds or so with crazy-face or fake "OMG UH HUHHHH" face and/or nodding.
    3. It didn't start out in some bizarre way that makes me think I've somehow started to watch in the middle of the segment, this part is usually some lame "out-take" intro containing inside jokes or other banter that only they themselves would care about.
    4. The girls didn't so obviously hate each other.

    Seriously....a few chairs situated in a better way would go soooooooo far in making TMI even marginally watchable. Right now it just looks like 3 crazies crammed on a couch with bad editing. And I've only seen like 3 episodes... bc it's truly unwatchable. I actually felt bad for that lady with the nice charity in the most recent one.

    And why were Mary's shoes off! Wtf. I know you are homeless, but keep your shoes on lady. It's still winter, you look silly.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Oh and 5. stop having half of it in black & white. It's not artsy, it just makes it look like your editor has ADD

    ReplyDelete
  46. This time last year Jackles was sooooo excited about the BRAVO reality show. That like so much else she hypes ad nauseum never materialized.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I think Meghan was quite appropriate in this taping; yes, the production sucks, the four of them crammed onto the sofa/sectional/futon/whatever is stupid, especially since it seems to try to atone for closeness.

    I kept imagining thought bubbles above their heads while the nice charity lady was speaking. Mary was thinking how the fact that dairy was non existent was not such a bad thing and she could probably discuss fasting and juicing with some of these women.

    Julia was thinking about SXSW and a new blow it out of the water lip dub.

    Meghan was actually listening, [yes, I have a weakness for megs] and trying to be engaging because it was actually about a subject she could get behind.

    just saying'

  48. Big News for TMIweekly!

    So, as you saw from my recent tweet, TMIweekly has been picked up by NBC’s new channel, New York NonStop. They’ll air episodes 6x/day, 7 days a week on the cable station, the internet, and hopefully, one day soon, on the backs of the cabs (that’s where I watch all my tv!)

    What does that mean, exactly? Well, the three founders of NonSociety - Meghan, Mary and myself, jointly own and co-produce TMIweekly with the fantastic media company Next New Networks. NBC already has 20 (or so) evergreen episodes of TMI to start them off, and then we’ll be taping approximately 8-10 additional episodes every month for at least the next 6 months.

    We’re thrilled with the partnership, and we can’t wait to take TMIweekly to the next level. We’d also love to hear your thoughts on how we can make it better!! Please email me at Julia@NonSociety.com … Have an awesome day!

  49. It does appear like any of the gals are leaving from JA's latest post above.

  50. But, but, you all said it was failing!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Yah. She's SO SO SO PROUD AND SO SO SO EXCITED AND SO SO SO PUMPED UP about this latest development just like she's SO SO SO HAPPY. SO HAPPY.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Then how come she's so so so so alone in promoting this new development? Wow. It would really suck if Meghan did quit and that news leaked out at the same time this deal was done being announced. I mean, if I were Julia I would certainly deny those rumors until the deal was signed. None of this is adding up. Given her history of the infamous Bravo deal, I'll believe this when I (don't) see it.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Eh, Jackles appears to be the only one who ever does any promotion for Non Society. So being the only one to promote the tv gig doesn't surprise me. I goota admit, she sure as hell knows how to promote herself. Non Society would have withered and died months ago, if we were to wait for Meghan or Mary to do anything.

    ReplyDelete
  54. she promotes herself and herself only.. nonsociety is only a poor attempt at a legitimizer, they're "press". bah!
