Mary: The Day After



Tipsters who have been in touch with Rambo confirm that, indeed, she is leaving NonSociety. But she will still be blogging! I am assuming she will no longer be blogging under the NonSociety banner.

Which is SUCH a shame, really. It is such a well-designed website! So pleasing to the eye! And those 1,392 different horizontal scroll bars -- so user-friendly!

Rambo? Three words: VERTICAL FUCKING SCROLLING! And one more word! SPELL-FUCKING-CHECK!

And another little bit of advice. Dish a bit on Jackles, will you? Even if you have to do some kind of [REDACTED], Russian Girl kind of schticky thing. Dish a bit on Jackles and the bullshit you tolerated from her and you will soon amass a large and loyal readership.

I would like to theorize that the beginning of the end for Rambo was the Vivienne Westwood dress tantrum thrown by Jackles. A seemingly in-the-know RBNS commenter said Megs was originally sympathetic to Mary, then turned and joined Team Jackles when Mary posted the video of herself looking hot in the dress that "Julia hated." Megs apparently felt Mary was just exacerbating the situation, yet another Jackles enabler keen to protect her from the well-deserved wrath that results from her foot-stomping narcissistic behavior. The relationship between the three has never seemed to recover from that and why? Because Princess Jill from Long Island University had to wear a dress that didn't accentuate her hooters. Poor dittums!

  1. Go Mary! Megs is an idiot for sticking with Jankles.

  2. My guess is that the beginning of the end for Mary, ironically, was TMI. The failed apartment deal, the failed reality show, etc. When TMI got underway that's when you saw Mary's growing frustration. The more Mary improved, the more competitive Julia seemed to get on camera. It came to a breaking point with Julia demanding her Resolutions.

    I'm willing to visit Mare's new cite multiple times on a daily basis, simply to piss off Jankles. If it ends up being good, so much the better.

    She better use spellcheck, though.

  4. Bicurious: I just added a command to use spellcheck to this post!

  5. No matter how good a friendship is, it can get ruined by living together. That could be why Megs ended up getting more irritated with Mary than with Jillia.

  8. Also, Megs is back to Meghanaise i am afraid.

    Enabling Jill from LIU while casting aside the woman of better quality?

    Poorly done, Meghanaise, poorly done.

    I comment often anonymously, but today I'll christen myself...

    I am on team Mary. Megs seems like a nice girl, sure, but I cannot bare her on camera with the exaggerrated wacky smile and the... oh, wait, that is all she does.

    Mary has visibly improved as a blogger and an on-camera presence. And yesterday she put more effort into that blog than ever with the new! features! "A Delicious DIsh" especially cracked me up. Sort of reminiscent of that SNL public radio cooking show. But has anyone else noticed that Mary's writing style and subject range resembles nothing quite so much as Gwyneth's GOOP?

  11. Mare became homeless 6 months into the NS venture. Her content went down hill because she was spending all her time and energy on sales. She sold all her tampon carrying case bags at "cost" in December 08' because she obviously needed cash. Jill showed up at the TMI tapings hours late and Mary is always punctual. Then, Jill had the nerve to publicly criticize Mary's "styling," and it's obvious that Mary is especially proud of her abilities in this area. What's worse is that according to Rambo's own twitter, Jill didn't express misgivings "face to face" but saved her displeasure for a public forum....

    The list just goes on.

    BTW, I love these investigative posts, Jacy.

  12. Her content went down hill because she was spending all her time and energy on sales.

    I'm not sure how much I believe the Mary handled ad sales/getting sponsors rumor. I think NNN handled that aspect for TMI and part of the sponsorship agreement was to advertise on NS. Mary may have been the liason for NS/TMI but I'm really doubtful that she created the pitches/ad cards/etc.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Christan:

    I don't think she created all the pitches and ad cards. However, from what Mary has stated, and from the evidence I've seen, she was definitely the point person for all sales calls. And she was the public interface. She just recently went to Kodak. Why go to Kodak when she's about to quit? Mary is savvy enough to preserve those sponsorship relationships for her future endeavors.

  14. Rambofications! SomeProblems, that should be the name of her new blog.

    ReplyDelete
  15. i like to think this all stemmed from when jackles decided to post a direct quote of mary saying she looked like a dyke. oopsie! jules had no idea the internet would get mad at mary! her bad.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I'm actually excited to see more of her cooking posts, on her own blog. Hopefully she won't talk about colonics...a girl can dream?

    ReplyDelete
  17. wait folks..what if Team Rambo becomes Team Gawker??

    ReplyDelete
  18. SA has a point about "dyke-gate". Mary certainly didn't come out of that one looking very nice.

    I think the beginning of the end was when Julia said on TMI that she loved Posh Spice's "style". Mary seemed horrified by that.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Let's be clear -- Bicurious Party Hat coined Rambofications. I just jumped on board. I like to include references to the Rambo films were possible to augment.

    That is all.

    Rambo has been treated like shit throughout this and dammit, there will be some Rambofications.

  20. Also, GOOP totes = First Blood. That is all.

  21. Gawd I love me some hot maryMarch 17, 2009 at 12:54 PM

    Rambo is going to be a big star. Besides anyone that actually likes her, she will have the legions of julia haters to click on her new site/cite/sight and I betcha the sponsorship is going to be gangbusters.

    Really, seriously, this ex-NS girl is going to be so hott, I.CAN'T.WAIT.

    ReplyDelete
  22. But Mary won't need the colonics anymore since she is running from julia and her shit.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Mary, that is quite a coop!

    ReplyDelete
  24. So, you have tipsters that confirmed this with Mary Rambin?

    Very Intresting.

    ReplyDelete
  25. JAB just posted an open invitation to us and the writers to meet her hahahhahahhahahahhahaha

    I have NO. WORDS. She is just (can I say it?) INDEFATIGABLE!

    ReplyDelete
  26. You mean Ineffable and or Infuckable?

    ReplyDelete
  27. was the invite to Gawker or RBNS? or both?

    ReplyDelete
  28. I would assume here, because she knows everyone at gawker already.

  29. i will copy and paste:

    From: Julia Allison
    Date: March 17, 2009 12:57:20 PM EDT
    To: [redacted website which just isn’t that into me]
    Subject: Invitation

    Hi there.

    I’m not sure what the proper protocol is for inviting people who despise me out to coffee (although I’m sure you’ll let me know if there is, in fact, a precedent in this situation). It’s a bit awkward, but I’ll be very honest: I think it’s time to meet.

    It’s clear that there are more than a few misconceptions about me - a divide between who I am and what I project - and, frankly, I’d like your advice. Why is it you hate me so much?

    Maybe this is a stupid idea, but I figure it can’t be worse than what you already think about me, right?

    I’ll answer any question you have, and you can make your own - IRL! I just used that acronym and I sort of hate myself for it! - impressions.

    Now, given, I don’t know where you live, and perhaps you don’t want to meet me. But perhaps one of your readers/commenters does. And then they could tell all of you exactly how fat/bloated/botoxed I am, really.

    So - if you’ll extend this invitation to your readers, I would be much obliged.

    I will buy anyone who has the balls to meet me in person in New York at least two beverages of their choice. Coffee, wine, tequila … blueprint cleanse? Blueprint cleanse with vodka? Whatever you want.

    I only ask one thing: you give me a chance.

    Sincerely,

    JA

  30. What a dumbass. Is Julia Allison Baugher actually thinking that if we meet in person, we'll LIKE HER, WE'LL REALLY REALLY LIKE HER?! SHE'S REALLY NICE, SHE PROMISES!! Spare us, Foolia.

    This is just like when she offered to meet for coffee with SM. Sorry Julia... we're just reacting to what you "put out there." Not really interested in seeing you in person/being bribed with your chintzy offer of two drinks and a Q and A session. Is that a two drink minimum? Are you going to charge a charity "cover charge" to meet with you, being the "celebrity" that you are? Or is this just another attempt at sniffing out your haters and then trying to shut them down?

    How pathetic that she offers an olive branch just a day after Mary jumps ship and people here congratulate her/wish her the best for doing so. Really, Julia, your stench of desperation smells... kind of like dogshit. Are you familiar with the smell of dogshit Julia?

    ReplyDelete
  31. She is looking for a couple rubes from over here to meet her in person and make complete asses out of themselves. At that point she can decry the entire community as "hate bloggers" and try to play the victim card.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Julia - people have been giving you a chance. Over and over and over again. You continually blow it and have been exposed as a liar and a fraud. No one wants to give you any more chances and you need to get your head out of your own ass if you think you deserve endless chances to make a good impression. That's not how the world works. Grow the fuck up.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Am I imagining it, or isn't this what Gary Vaynerchuck said he did in his SXSW presentation? Somebody didn't like him, he Facebook messaged them to find out what their problem was with him, they corresponded and now the former hater is a Gary V fan?

    I don't think Julia just came up with this idea on her own.

    It must be exhausting constantly needing to know what people don't like about you. I'd have more respect for Julia if she just got on with her life, enjoyed it and didn't apologize for it. It's the fact that she craves love so much that's obviously causing half the problems because it's necessitated the creation of a kind of faux-persona that people can't and don't want to identify with.

  35. Jacy: you have a theory?

    This is from 16 days ago.

    Anonymous said...
    Meghan tried to act as a peacekeeper between the two over the dress.

    When MR wore both J's dress and MA's dresses to fashion week and blogged it, Megs felt mary went way too far --"just throwing fuel on the fire!" which is why NS money went to purchasing two tickets to San Fran. and MR was delegated to hosting said party.

    Way to win friends and influence people. Issue a challenge and passive aggressively call us cowards thinking that will appeal to our inner ego. No, see, that's how you work Julia. Like when Heather Gold Tweeted that she didn't want you there because you lack intelligence? And then you showed? Yeah, like that. Only we're not you.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Yes, Anon1:58 -- that's why I CREDITED the RBNS insider with the story.

    My theory is that that is when all the bad blood started, but it was the RBNS commenter who told us that Megs switched sides.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Anon: 1:48

    Except that Julia did do this years ago at gawker. So, I doubt she got it from Gary a couple of days ago.

    Pour your hate on me, but I don't understand why you wouldn't want to do this. [obv's NY'ers] Think of what a humanitarian you would be, schooling her on botox and weight issues, you could take all of your fabulous advice and serve it up real nice.

    Many here were suggesting crashing her party, now you have an invite--go--

  42. I love how bicurious party hat said mary better use spell check and then misspells "site" in the same comment.

    ReplyDelete
  43. So tell us what she did, then. But don't come on here and shit on me for stealing someone's theory when in fact I made very clear that some kind of anonymous person claiming some inside knowledge of what was going on said the issue was between Meghan and Mary, not Megs and JA. If that was you, you did claim to know something, and I did credit you for it in this post.

    Tell us what you know.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I also heard from very reliable sources that Mary got her gramps to cough up some dough so that she could buy her own boat, [what better way could there be to blow jules out of the water?] she felt yacht blogging was when she really found her voice and consequently her audience.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Uhm, first of all, how did I 'shit' on you, by asking you a question? For that then, I apologize.

    Second: you really don't want to know what I know, [I am not a Mary fan, and I am quite tired of being called SM when I am critical of Ms. Rambin] just between you and me, this site lost quite a few people to that practice.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I just sent her an email. I told her that I'd be happy to discuss online or with her the next time she's in Chicago. Hi Jackles!

    ReplyDelete
  47. You suggested I took a theory as my own when in fact it was someone else's. Yes, I took offence, particularly since I made a point of crediting that person -- you, I guess? -- with intially cluing us in that the dispute was between M and M.

    I have never called you SM. And between you and me, the site statistics suggest we aren't losing people. Not that I give a shit about that -- I couldn't care less if there were only 10 people, funny people and not dicks, who were reading this blog.

  55. Aren’t there contributors on this blog who know her? It seems like some of the Gawker folks are on here. And Loren is on here too, sometimes, right? I’m sure some others know/knew her at one point. Hell, I used to WORK with her.

    The point is, Julia, WE KNOW YOU.

    We’ve met you. We’ve broken bread with you. We’ve asked you questions. (I know I asked you a ton because I couldn’t figure out how you were living in NYC and hiring your own interns when we were doing the same job and I could barely afford to take the subway.)


    Also, we REALLY need to stop feeding the trolls around here. Honestly, it just gets stupid and ugly. Let’s just agree to ignore them and be done with it.
