Mary: Working Out Cheerfully Despite the Frenemy Diss

Here's Mary, working out as usual in Houston, seemingly unperturbed that her frenemy back in NYC, when not publicly slagging her, is either e-mailing strangers about what a bitch she is, puking, Twittering about masturbation or lamenting how she cannot lose weight and soliciting tips from readers (TIP: Put cupcake down. Move ass.)





Get your sweat on!!

A reader wrote me today saying she had been doing cardio for a week, but couldn’t see any changes in her body.

After not working out for a while and then doing cardio, I can’t imagine there isn’t a slight change.

But as I was dripping in sweat on the stairmaster this morning, I checked out the women around me. Some were pretty intense. Others were walking or climbing slowly - which is fine - but you need to break a sweat. If you’re not sweating, you’re not working.

  1. Forget Mary, you know what's cute? The girls reenact "Sex and the City" Episode #38. Life does imitate art:

    Megan: I wish I were still a virgin.
    Meghan & Me [simultaneously]: WHAT!??!?! WHY!???
    Megan: Because you don't know what you're missing if you don't have it.
    Me: Or you could go my route and just not have it for so long you don't remember what it's like.
    Meghan: You're re-virginized.
    Me: Yeah, it's like when you're signed into your bank account online and it logs you out if it's been inactive for more than ten minutes.
    Megan: Ways to know you've spent too much time staring at your taxes today.
    Me: Ugh, totally.

  4. This post was totally a direct passive aggressive dig at YOOLIA Cupcake Allison.

  5. Er, by "this post," I meant "Mary's post.."

  6. TJ: I agree totally. Especially the "if you're not breaking a sweat" part. I howled when she poked fun at Jackles for the trampoline class on the TMI Weekly exercise segment.

    Remember the hilarious yoga phase when she got back from Davos and was trying to impress the married billionaire yoga freak? And she posted photos of her gruelling workout involving ridiculous non-yoga poses? Oh man, that was funny. That whole episode could really go on the Jackles Highlight Reel.

    And then she quickly deleted all her Tweets about the guy, and the photos from his private jet, because he must have freaked out on her ass.

    I adore Rambo and I offer no apologies. She is such a glaring example of a well-rounded approach to life with a sense of balance and authenticity, mixed in with a good dose of self-awareness. The way she handles JA during TMI tapings is the definiton of finesse, not to mention karma at work.

    She does seem to possess a maturity and some poise that is not possessed by her demented friend. However, it's like comparing Dumb to Dumber. Dumb comes out on top, yes, but it is a very low bar.

    However, she does seem aware that she's dumb, which is the first step in becoming not dumb and so I have some hope for her. JA, on the other hand, actually believes herself to be highly intelligent. And when you watch the "Fuck You Money" video, you realize she's by far the dumbest of the three.

  9. Rambo has created some decent content this week. Groundbreaking? No way. Fabu Prose? Not even close. However, she's picked an editorial direction, and created a way to organize her content with theme days and such. It's resulted in a cohesive blog that tells a story. I cannot say the same about the other two.

    Jacy: I completely forgot about JA's yoga poses!!!!!!!!!!!! I loved the Arabesque post.....

    OMG. We must never forget the ridiculous reason we are all here-YOOLIA!

  10. oh, but, Poor Julia!

    She is twittering that she has a vomit inducing migraine.

    Lame attempt at garnering sympathy and I think we all saw that coming.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Rambo is so boring. How could you be a fan of that?

    ReplyDelete
  12. Have you guys seen the pictures JAB just put up from her first hockey game?!

    Honestly, it doesn't take a GENIUS to know what's appropriate attire for a sporting event - whether you've ever been to one, or not.

    Julia, you are that girl that everyone is embarrassed for, because it's so painstakingly clear that she is trying way, way, WAY too hard.

  13. If I see one more picture of Jankles dressed as an "Ooops I Did it Again" reject my head is going to explode. Enough with the kilts for the love of God and all that is holy.

  14. Seriously, Anon 9:59!

    She's too old to keep dressing this way! Look at what Meghan was wearing! Doesn't she see a difference?!

    ReplyDelete
  15. @Anon 9:47 PM... I just saw those photos. Why is she wearing a Gossip Girls outfit to a hockey game? God, does this girl ever just throw on jeans and a t-shirt and call it a day? She literally has costumes instead of clothing.

    ReplyDelete
  16. * eesh 9:59 here, I had to google it but I meant Hit Me Baby One More Time (appropriate). The Spears catalog is so deep I got confused.

  17. Is it physically impossible for Julia Baugher to wear a pair of jeans and some tennis shoes? It's a damn hockey game! Look how normal and COMFORTABLE Meghan looks. All that poseuring must really be tiring... no wonder it makes her physically ill.

    ReplyDelete
  18. She did say her jeans are too tight. I guess going out and buying a new pair in a bigger size would be out of the question. Those flouncy skirts are not flattering.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Is that a silky baseball bomber jacket she's wearing with the school girl skirt? Oy fucking vey. And 4 inch booties????

    You know what men hate, Julia Allison? High Maintenance. That outfit is both hystrionic and high maintenance. yeee gawds. Good luck finding a hubby, yoolia.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Also, what ever happened to that whole "I'm a media personality, so I can't wear the same thing twice?"

    Girlfriend, I have SEEN this skirt (many times) before!!!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Ok, those booties are a HOT MESS. If I have to see them one more time... Well, I don't know how to finish that. At least with the Meghan boots and the Mary YSL maryjanes, you know that they cost a lot and they are getting their money's worth. But with JA, those booties are from TopShop, they look cheap, and they make her look cheap.

    Also, if you're not actually a schoolgirl, the whole tiny plaid skirt thing just makes you look like you are stuck in 1995. Even if her jeans don't fit anymore (as she said), she's got that great Juicy tracksuit! Anything is better than faux-Blair Waldorf.

  22. And Yoolia's best bud, Meghanaisse, posts screenshots all day with little to no context provided. And yet, Mary is plugging away, not going anywhere despite a supposed departure? This is not computing for me.

    ReplyDelete
  23. ive been to hockey games--i can imagine the looks on the typical hockey fan's face when jackles sat down in front of them.

    ReplyDelete
  24. ps--just manuevering through tight aisles in what i derived to be the nosebleed seats (the photos were from far up) in those shoes had to be retardedly hazardous.

    nonsociety: retardedly hazardous to your health.

  25. Back to the actual post. Whether Mary was making a dig at julia or not, she's right. Girl knows her work-outs.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I'm 100% Team Mary, but am I the only one who thinks it's incredibly irresponsible of Mary to suggest that it only takes one week of exercising to see a physical change? It's certainly possible to see a change after a week, but that's not the norm.

    ReplyDelete
  27. yeah, she really should have mentioned that results take time, sometimes weeks, that diet is a huge factor, and that sometimes throwing in weights or resistance training can boost efforts significantly. :D

    ReplyDelete
  28. I'm finding that it's possible to be Team Mary while simultaneously knowing/understanding that Mary doesn't really know what she's talking about. Classy as she may be, this is still the girl who hocks colonics, blueprint and only eating solid foods at night (although she has since backed off of that one, it seems). Her blog is head and shoulders above the others and it's even entertaining a lot of the time. But it's not to be trusted about anything that matters.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Has anyone read Mary's twitter? She is trying to get in touch with her sister Levin and wants Levin to email her because she lost her phone (and I assume with it, Levin's #)

    Levin, call your sister!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Her outfit would be cute if she were 17. Considering she's like 34 it's maybe time to pack it in and buy a size bigger jeans, put the hair in a ponytail and try to enjoy the game instead of making everything a Julia Event.

  31. TJ

    Yeah, this is not computing for me either, now Mary is posting outfits for TMI and showing which of the ensembles Julia approved of.

    TMI will be filmed where? NY, Houston, LA, and once again, Mary & Julia are back?

    I am starting to get all conspiratorial, was the fight staged for page views? I really don't think they are that good at acting...but where's Mary's new blog. Was it just the one she put together for her mom? I really wanted her to leave NS.

    ReplyDelete
  32. according to my counts, we have 5 days.

    im predicting april 1, something was running out then.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Sara,

    The original story was that Mary was remaining as part of the TMI "cast" but spinning off her own blog. We saw evidence of a new blog but I do believe that it no longer has any content on it. I think she was always coming back to NYC to film TMI episodes as part of their new NBC taxi deal. But she's still on NS, not using her own blog...

    My guess? There are some negotiations happening behind the scenes. Just a guess but possible.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I like Mary! I mean, she's not the sharpest tool in the shed, if you know what I mean..but when put her up against Julia? Come on! Her blog is actually getting better every day, methinks.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Mary may be sort of dumb and horribly misinformed about nutritional topics but I'm not gonna lie - I am jealous of her dedication to fitness. It takes some serious work ethic to be a gym rat like that.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Yeah, I do wish I had the desire to hit up the gym like Mary does. To me it's the worst place on earth.

    ReplyDelete
  37. james, i'm jealous of her too. i gotta say, i don't always hit up the gym the way i should so she definitely inspires me.

    ReplyDelete
  38. TJ: Thanks for update.

    I like Mary too, but she is too much like my sister, always throwing a little comments to my other sister [who is probs 15 lbs overweight] and I always feel like I am getting in the middle. Oh god, I'm meghan...

    No for real, how did I not see that before?

    Well, thinking it out my other sister is not julia allison, so, ok, crisis averted.

    I like working out, but two hours a day is never gonna happen in my lifetime.

  39. throwing little comments>> not throwing 'a' little.

  40. Well said, Melissa Sue!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I admire anyone who has that much dedication to working out. Rambo may be dumb but she's bang on about the emotional and physical benefits of working out. We seem to have forgotten in this country that we eat way too much and don't move enough. Good for her.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Does anyone else think that Rambo is secretly posting to this site on an almost daily basis?

    Seriously. How many times have we seen posts like "MR is the only real one of the bunch" or "she's going to have a career after this is over" or earlier in this thread -- "She is such a glaring example of a well-rounded approach to life with a sense of balance and authenticity, mixed in with a good dose of self-awareness."

    Are you kidding me? ALL of these girls are HIDEOUS. Mary may not be as bad as Julia, but only by a few points on the awful scale. "balance and authenticity." Give me a break! Who would post that crap other than Rambo herself? I'm on to you!!
