Welcome to the terrible majesty of the bray and the cray!
Let me just say this before anyone else does: "crossing the line." OK, carry on.
Wow. Is that a mating call? Eww.
There is no line. Julia ate it.
Sarcastic @ 3:17?
Shamu escaped from Sea World. Last seen at the Parikh's swimming pool.
Can't she just use Google??????
Anyone know what time the seal feedings are? (It's amazing what she'll do for a cupcake.)
Is she groping her own tits in that video???
That's what she sounds like when she has an orgasm.
@3:34PMUh, nooo, I would never, ever resort to sarcasm, ever.-3:17
I heard that the Parikhs awoke to the vocalizations of that lost pup in their pool. A call was placed Sea World and it was airlifted to Half Moon Bay and released as a throng of onlookers gathered. Shortly thereafter, Meghan received the following tweet: OMG. SO. HAPPY!
Some one hook that up to a dance beat and lets go!
Sorry for double posting, if I am. JA in the buff:http://www.vimeo.com/4159066
why does she continue to post pics of airport gates? How is this content?Unless her target audience is people who have never been in an airport, she's doing it wrong.
Goes along with balancing a quarterback's balls on the tip of her nose.
Julia is so nice in that video!
Ok. Now I'm convinced Meghan is in fact a true tech genius and decided to make the constant tech mishaps her funny trade mark:"My phone reception is so pathetic. Dropped calls like this happen on ALL THE TIME.I’m ready to throw this mini mobile computer out my cabby’s window.Tech curse strikes again!"http://meghan.nonsociety.com/lifecast/96678986-0-4She also follows in Julia's airport photographing footsteps, but includes planes. Does contact to this woman (Julia) turn other people stupid? Does she maybe not live on bluecleanse, but on brains?
This is a side comment that I'm sure all sorts of people will disagree with, but in that video, I don't think she looks haggered (sp?) or aged at all. I think she looks the best au natural (though she probably is wearing make up there).Oh look... there I am "popping" up again.
Allison--No. I agree..of course, she has make-up on, but it's better than her bday balloon pics...!I don't like, however, how she treats other people. It's hard to explain, I guess, it's just that everything is 'so cute' to her and others are 'so cute' and 'that's so great you are doing this; it's a dying art...'. She seems to always position herself above other people, especially her young girl followers. Those headbands took work and creativity, more than anything we have seen with JA's "products". Whatever.
Allison, I respect your right to come here and post and all that, but I sincerely have to ask you - why do you do it? You seem to like Julia so why read a blog that is dedicated to saying some really nasty things about her? And why do you feel the need to come here and publicly defend her? What are you hoping to gain from it or get out of it? No snark... I am really curious.
Holy fuck, there is a tmiTALKBACK section in the latest Gary V. crapfest video:http://www.tmiweekly.com/episode/TMI_20090416Meghan actually apologizes for sounding like a snob!
Julia is like "He's so famous he's so famous he's so rich, he may buy the Yankees!" and he dives in to what he really is all about. EL OH EL.
God and Julia's laugh. Is so. Awful.
Mary Beth, Quit asking Allison about her motivations. She comes here, like everyone else, because she's fascinated by the JA phenomenon. The end.
Mother of god, Julia's arm's look like tree trunks in that wine episode. And that honking laugh! Russian Girl - I'd be really mad that Julia is ripping off your looks and your laugh! It's hilarious to see her squirm like a puppy that needs to take a piss for like, the ENTIRE episode. You can tell she HATES IT when she can't dominate the conversation. Her stupid "wine is icky!"-type comments make her look like an immature dolt and it's insulting to the guest host.
TMI talkback is very uncharacteristic and actually kind of refreshing.
ANON 6:40--Just like Allison - or any other commenter - is free to come here and say whatever they want to, I am free to ask them a question or respond to their comment. It's called discourse, dear. Why don't you let her respond if she wants to and not try to answer for her?
Notice how Julia didn't answer a TMI talk back question. I think it's refreshing but I also think it's a ploy to try and get more comments. The pointedly said "leave a comment and we just might respond to yours!" That sounds like begging for comments to me. Their fashion episode only has one comment so far... not exactly the most thrilling topics being covered over there.
Yeah I get what discourse is. She can still respond if she wants, and you can still ask her if you want, I just threw in my two cents. I think it's really obnoxious that people ask her why she's here almost every time she posts. She's here for many of the same reasons anyone else is. Just because she likes Julia more than most people doesn't make her some enormous mystery.
Oh and, the previous comment was by me, Anon 6:40
"She's here for many of the same reasons anyone else is." How can you just assume that, anon 6:52? You don't know why Allison is here, nor can you assume why other people are. I think MOST people are here because they don't like Julia and Allison seems to be a lone voice in the crowd because she often supports her. I think it's weird - why would Allison read a web site dedicated to bashing someone she likes?
I don't think Allison is defending Julia at all. I think she's stating her opinion. She said something that numerous other people have said - that when Julia is without make up and going au natural, she's actually quite attractive. Nobody else is every asked to explain their motivation. Which, by the way, is not "discourse." You're passive aggressively issuing her a challenge. She's explained herself before, actually a few times now. She shouldn't be asked the same thing every time she comments. You want to know her motivation? Read past threads.As for you, Allison, you kind of asked for this one with your antagonistic "Here I go popping up again" closing.
@ Anon 6:58/Mary Beth.Actually, do know why Allison is here, because she's explained herself many times before. I like how you say "you [can't] assume why other people are [here]" and then go on in the very next sentence to do precisely that - assume that most people are here because they dislike Julia Allison. Also, you really think it's weird that someone would come to this site despite disagreeing with many of the other readers? Do you only seek out the opinions of those who already agree with you? For someone who espouses the virtues of "discourse", that's not very open minded of you.
Change the damn subject.Why the hell can't these girls stay put in one fucking city?
Cobwebs, they can't stay put in one city because they have no real job, actual friends, or relationships to keep them in one place. In Julia's case, she has to hop from place to place (most recently following around Sarah Lacy) chasing her happy tail because she can't just be happy with herself. Sitting on her ass in New York in her tiny apartment all day probably isn't the glamorous jet setting life she imagined for herself and it kills her inside.
Chill everybody!There's a harbor seal up above us!!!
Julia is going to San Francisco with SARAH LACY to pay a visit to her real family - the harbor seals.
Does anyone find it a little icky that Gary V. is there with three moderately hot women while his wife is pregnant at home and, furthermore, during tmiTALKBACK, Mary basically declares that all three of them usually have men on their minds ALL. THE. TIME. ???
All I know is that if she shows up anywhere in San Francisco wearing that ridiculous mint-green poofy dirndl thingie, she will be set upon by the populace and ripped to tatters.Julia + San Francisco = Not. A. Match.
I don't think there's anything wrong with Gary being there while his wife is home. It's not like there's anything improper going on - this is basically his job.But yeah, Talkback is a good idea in theory, but not when your answers sound just as bad as the stuff that got people upset in the first place.
7:59PMYa, maybe you are right, it is his job. I just find Julia's presence there disturbing. I mean, you know she wants a piece of him.
Anonymous 6:43, I saw that meghan apologized for sounding like a snob, so I went back and watched that "money and friends" episode and in the comments, julia says this..."Actually, I have never received any money from my parents, save a graduation gift in 2004 of $10k to get me started. Of course, they also paid for my education, and for that I am forever grateful to them."Ummm, 10K? For graduating College? Graduating is great and all, but my parents paid for my steak at dinner...and that's it. 10k is half of what I made the first YEAR i had a job (nonprofit, no benefits...typical). And she claims she split everything evenly with Alex, the rich older dude she moved in with after college who won't return her calls or e-mails now! I don't think so. I'm sure if anyone could get him to talk he'd say she didn't pay for shit. Was this not the boyfriend who gave her sapphire earrings, bought her new dresses and Chanel bags, and whisked her off to Paris as a surprise?
It's not Alex who won't return her calls, it's Michael.Shoot me for knowing this.
Anon 7:53 - I totally agree. San Francisco would not have tolerated Julia Allison for half as long as New York did. Her chances there are null, zilch now that word has already spread across the country re: what a douche-bag she really is.
Hey, I guess "snowflake" (I cringe when I see that name for some reason) really is a fan of RBNS! She is giving Meghan pointers on how to improve:Snowflake: Don't make that face you look EXAAAGERAATTED!!!!Sister: You look like your appendix exploded and you're convulsing in pain!!Snowflake: We can email you the episodes we find your expressions uncomfortable to watch.Me: Thanks guys. Nice, real nice.
Ok, I just watched the Spring Fashion Trends episode...which was useless as usual.However, I am only here to say that there is no end to them proving how out of touch and idiotic they are. Just when I think that they've said the stupidest thing possible, something else comes up.Case in point? Julia says "I'm ready to get my American Express out!!! Solve the problems of this economy!!!"Um...WHAT? Yes. Buying things you don't need and can't afford on credit. That's clearly step 1 of solving our nations economic problems, you fucking dolt. That's really what everyone else in the nation is doing right now. You are so my source for "life". What a good lesson for these tough times.This isn't October 2001 anymore. Just fyi, Jules. And PS. American Express isn't going to sponsor you, and they've likely cut back your credit limit since they are being extremely conservative these days. In other words, no more headbands for you.

Anonymous 8:32, no need for a shooting. Thanks for clearing this up. There have been so many.
Anon 8:35, I feel the same about the name "Snowflake." I find it so beyond creepy, weird and totally not-cute. Okay. We get it. Your dad is Indian. You're half-Indian. So is your sis. So your mom is the only pale-as-a-snowflake person in the fam. Har har har.God, I hate Meghan. Snowflake, if you're reading this, please take your daughter off the internet. Her and her crazy faces belong in the basement of a hedgefund where Daddy also invests, where she can crunch numbers in obscurity.
No, no Dahling. She belongs on Fox News telling us about her "worst stock pick ever"! Because she is a "hedge fund analyst".http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=faAhEVNHce8&feature=channel_pageThat was so insightful... tell us that part about the ~future~ again, Megs!In all seriousness, on a scale of 1 to infinity of embarassment...how embarassing is that video? First, she gets hit on by the host. Then, she says the most elementary stuff I've ever heard about the stock market. Then, she redirects the question back to the host because she can't answer on her own. The answer: Infinity embarassing.
So I guess Julia couldn't find anyone to go to the Oprah taping with her? Or was that some suggestion that she was in the Oprah inner twitter circle.Half a dozen of one and all......
Aw, thanks guys for what I can only decipher to be the semi-defending of me and my so-called intentions.I knew that putting the "popping up" comment was inviting everyone to comment on me, but it would've happened REGARDLESS of whether or not I added that tag at the end, so I was beating all the critics to the punch. And more on topic here, I find it absurd that JA claims to pay all of her own bills/rent/etc. It's just unfathomable. It's incredibly hard for people in full time jobs to support themselves and live alone in New York City, not to mention a barely-still-published writer. Like I always say after rants like these, it's really none of our business - but she kind of brings it on herself when she states her rent and then claims to do it all on her own. There are people who have to struggle a lot, and I always admire them a lot, but then there are people like myself who don't have to struggle (though it's not at all because my family has even a small percentage of the wealth that JA's does) and sometimes I wish that I had to struggle a little so I could say that I "did it on my own," but I know I probably wouldn't be able to - so why deny that fact?/end rant
@9:16 PMIs it my imagination, or does the host seem to be talking with marbles in his mouth?
