TMI Weekly: Whining About Money

86 comments:

  1. Sorry, I want to repost this in the correct context: I have no idea how Meghan doesn't have more haters. I really don't. She's pretty goddamn retarded and loathsome.

  2. "That's the price of half a purse at Barney's!!!!"

    Really? Struggling people spend $500 on purses?

    ReplyDelete
  3. I'm with you, Dahling, she fits right in.
    Also, has Julia resorted to wearing table cloth now? I know, I always say this, but I HATE THE DRESS possibly even more than the green one from hell.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Ha! Julia posted awhile ago that she loved this top. It DOES look like a tablecloth!

    ReplyDelete
  5. I find it UNBEARABLE than Meghan is trying to pass herself off as another struggling girl. I'd have so much more respect for her if she were just like, Yeah, I'm a goddamn heiress, yeah, my daddy hooks me up, and my life is fucking awesome.

    But no. She can't even do that. It's beyond cringe-inducing when she talks about money. I wonder how Mary and Julia feel when they listen to her.

    ReplyDelete
  6. They all come off so horribly Mary-Jane Mary looks like the good guy, 'cause we know Julia never really paid for anyone when she was rolling in it. And how about instead of just conjecturing about free things to do, Meghan, why not go out and find them?

    ARGH. They try to be relevant and they just fail completely.

  7. I am a Meghan hater from way back. Those annoying facial expressions in lieu of a personality are not fooling me. She is blandness all around.

    I could not watch much of that video because they are all so LOATHSOME. I hate those voices. Nails on a chalkboard

    ReplyDelete
  8. The condescending and elementary tone (and content) is sort of mind-blowing. It's as if they're making re-acclimation tapes for recently-freed POW's or hostages.

    It's like a show for people who are out of the coma, but not quite all the back into the world. I'm waiting for them to do a segment on how to handle cutlery, or re-learning how to tie ones' own shoes. Forget taxi cabs, they should get a contract to air this stuff at the trauma ward of hospitals.

    It's like, "...perhaps you've never heard of this so-called `television'. Let me walk you through it. Or, the kids are using this `slang speak'... let me explain..."

  11. Did anyone notice an excess of saliva in that episode?

    ReplyDelete
  12. Oh no's, we can't afford designer purses, clothes and dinners anymore, wahhhh!!! Poor us! Life in Manhattan just isn't as much FUN anymore now that we don't make as much money!

    GOD.Shut.the.fuck.up.
    Get into real life. Get a clue. Look at the fucking world around you three wastes of space and the atrocities that you SHOULD be focusing on beyond just the current state of your empty wallets and your rotting twats.

    And get a real job that doesn't involve literally selling your souls on the internet.

    Seriously, I'd have more respect for these clowns if they were actual PAID strippers on their own pretty pink princess pornsite.
    The funny thing is, they just may have to resort to that at some point.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I think the "No sex on TMI" thing was Julia's idea. I remember her posting something about it when they changed it from "sex" to "life" - basically, she didnt want to talk about sex because she's prude and frigid, so she redefined her beat as "life" because all the things she talks about are so heady and important.

    ReplyDelete
  14. @Anon 1:56PM:

    That thought crossed my mind too; that is, in today's society, there may be more respect in doing porn then in doing whatever the fuck they are doing right now.

    P.S. I <3 you flatface!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Oh and, Julia says she was making $50 at week when she first moved to NY. Why does she think it's not transparant to everyone that her parents did/do support her. Does she think anyone is fooled? - "Oh no, that poor girl survived in NYC on 2K a year! Hows stoic and noble!"

    ReplyDelete
  16. I don't think The Vapid Trio would post anything as harsh as calling them "a waste of space" in the comments section, but they do often allow critical and negative comments on their TMI website. I would suggest leaving a brief comment both on this episode and on Meghan's hilariously out of touch decorating post - it seems like someone besides the three of them approve comments. I mean really... they need to know what spoiled bitches they sound like.

  18. Plus, the label "life" gives her a broader range to talk about her favorite subject - HERSELF - since she really doesn't have the experience, maturity, insight or guts to much to say about sex or dating AT ALL. Most of her old sex and dating stuff was tame enough for Seventeen magazine.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Considering what goes on in the back of some nyc cabs you'd think NBC wouldn't be so picky about it.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Cabs with children? The taxi cab commercial television restrictions are very puritanical. Trust me.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Why is the camera so badly misaligned as to leave one of the hosts half out of the frame?

    ReplyDelete
  22. TJ don't be silly. Everyone knows they don't let children in cabs (in Aliceland)

    ReplyDelete
  23. TJ didn't WANT to repost a comment...but she simply MUST.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Can I just mention that I have been watching the whole thing twice and I cannot see Julia's tattoo on any wrist? Am I blind? No conspiracy theory intended, I simply didn't see it and I watched hard. Which wrist is it on again?

    ReplyDelete
  25. Anon 3:00: Douche.

    ReplyDelete
  26. or was that episode pre tattoo? in that case i shut up and go to my corner.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I initially started my tumblr site focusing on Mary and her sheer stupidity. I admit it, it was an easy target.

    I then switched focus on Meghan Asha Parikh (I do this so when she googles herself, my stuff will always pop up) because in reality she's even less intelligent than Mary. At least Mary tries to better herself. Meghan is more like Jackles every day. And to top it off she denies any help financially. Let's be real here, if she's making money on her technology blogging (snicker snicker), then I'm starting a site where I photograph my daily bowel movement. It will rake in millions.

    Seriously, this crap makes my blood boil. Meghan trying to pass herself off as "just common folk" is absurd. Meghan, honey, get a fucking grip. You don't work and you live in NYC. Does Daddy send a check or a wire every month?

    When you girls get off the dole, get jobs, and earn a living, then come back with your friendly advice. Until then, sit there and wait with bated breath for the monthly money tree to bloom. And be sure to thank Mom and Dad for it.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Why haven't they partnered with those Bud Light Real Whores of Genius promotions? "Miss Vapid Internet Over-shaaaarer" etc

    ReplyDelete
  29. Yeah, I'm a douche sometimes, 3:00pm and I wanted to make my point under the appropriate post. Apologies! Live Differently!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Totally agree web20morons. They do a lot of dumb shit, but when they start talking about money and pretend they're so middle class and normal it infuriates me. They say they are not *currently* receiving help, but stay mum on whether or not mom and dad set them up in an apartment or gave them a trust fund in the past. To them, being independent or on your own means having to buy your own Chanel bags.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Anyone else notice Jackle's 'Basic Instinct' moment at the end of the video? Yuck!

    Excuse me while I go bleach my eyeballs.

    ReplyDelete
  32. If you watch Jackles while Meghan or Mary are speaking, you can see her crazily squirming like a puppy with a full bladder. She is DYING to talk over everyone else and completely dominate the conversation with her stupid anecdotes.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I hate people who cry poor but show total financial irresponsibility.

    Julia, that tattoo? Unnecessary expense. As was the gym membership you just purchased when you have a gym in your building. There's also this revolutionary invention called the subway that people use instead of being raped by taxi cab fares.

    If she's talking about Krystal when she mentions the room mate who worked in finance who took it personally when Julia couldn't afford to go out with her for drinks, then add Krystal to the list of Julia hangers on who grew up spoiled and out of touch.

    Like Julia had survive in the big bad city making $50 a week.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Julia is clearly a gay fish:

    ReplyDelete
  35. 3:44

    I thought the tattoo was probably a paid for by Kevin Rose who went with her OR a freebie for publicity on the blog (believe it or not, a lot of small business do this kind of stuff for Julia. Recent examples: Illus & the Petticoat designer).

    Also, Julia advertised the gym she became a member of and even gave out a discount code. Again...probably another undeclared freebie.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Not to mention Julia once said her studio/utilities were $2,800 a month!!! Talk about financial irresponsibility! Anyone dumb enough to pay that much for a glorified hotel room does not deserve to whine about not having any money.

    Plus, I am sure her travel expenses are paid for when she gets invited to speak at conferences, etc. but she wasn't a speaker at SXSW and that cross country birthday trip was a beyond pointless waste of money.

    I particularly liked that Mary made a very pointed jab at Julia on TMI when she talked about declining to have a big birthday dinner because she didn't want her friends to feel obligated. Nice.

    Julia has many, many more upcoming trips and flights in the next few months. Uh.. wanna cut expenses Julia? Keep your ass in New York and actually work on your "business."

  38. As soon as they mention "birthday dinners" butinsky Julia blurts "I hate those!" Eff-You, you self-centered biotch. Didn't you make a huge production about your birthday?! You hate them when they're not for you! She is so clueless. And this was an episode of Friends years ago. This is just word salad. Pathetic.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Anybody see the following Scary Mary video?

    Nocturnal Emissions with Julia Allison
    http://www.vimeo.com/3795613

    She is almost channeling Julia at certain points. Unfortunately, the Valley accent sometimes comes through, but whatever. Mildly entertaining, even if a little bit on the long side.

    ReplyDelete
  40. We've already seen it and discussed, 4:04.

  41. @Anon 4:08PM:

    OK, sorry, must have been checked out when that happened. My bad.

    ReplyDelete
  42. That Scary Mary video is weeks old.

    ReplyDelete
  43. THANK YOU butreeks. whoever says the girls don't do research for episodes is wrong. they clearly watched a whole 22 minutes of a friends episode that ran 15 years ago.

    what's next week's episode, the girls furious when randi z goes to see the hootie and the blowfish concert without them?

    ReplyDelete
  44. I saw Meghan in a subway station near Soho sometime before the Denmark trip telling some seemingly random men who were carrying her stuff down the stairs how she was going to a technology conference. I say "seemingly random" because the conversation was the kind you would have with strangers. Home girl's voice carries.

    ReplyDelete
  45. As someone who knows a bit about tattoos, Julia's didn't cost much. It's very small, all black, etc.

  46. Now remember the bingo squares for JA in Chicago are:

    -daddy revenue and JA get into debate about Obama
    -pictures of everything except daddy
    -one lip dub

  47. Julia looks like a chipmunk storing nuts in her cheeks for a long winter.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Also get a bingo square for any lame mention of something bringing back memories (segue into longwinded recitation of whatever mundane memory was sparked).

    ReplyDelete
  49. you mean which Parent houses she had sex in?

    ReplyDelete
  50. A yes, Baugher Bingo: Chicago Edition. Give yourself a square if Julia:

    1. Posts what she thinks are witty conversations between herself and her parents, usually mocking her dad for being dorky. As if having a dorky dad is something novel.
    2. Mentions her parent's home, downtown condo, redecorating or some other real estate matter that she believes will lend her an air of money and class.
    3. Mentions/photographs herself at the University Club
    4. Posts about her sweet, cute little grandma as if she is the only one in the world who has a sweet, cute little grandma.
    5. Mentions Dan.
    6. Calls her parents momsers and dadsers.
    7. Yammers on about some trite high school memory.
    8. Makes tenuous associations between herself and Obama and/or Oprah.

    And finally...

    9. Gets weepy and nostalgic for Chicago, thus setting up a convenient move back home when her money/opportunities run dry in New York.

  53. 11. Pictures and videos of Julia traipsing on the beach, just to prove to Mary how WARM and BEAUTIFUL Chicago beaches are... even if it's freezing in April. Also reminds everyone that her home is WATERFRONT.

    ReplyDelete
  54. 12. Nite on the town at high-school chum's "hot club," with obligatory references to his parentage, his VIP section and his failure to ask her to the prom. Or his actually asking her to the prom & she said no. Whichever. Oh, hell, just add a square for any gratuitous prom reference.

  55. 13. Brownies baked by Mom. Bonus square for references to eating too many of them and feeling sick/guilty.

  60. Wow @ her left comments (screencapped just in case). Wow @ her being such a infomercial salesman. Wow @ the talking about men reacting to the hair because DUH MEN WANT REAL HAIR. Wow @ her thinking fake hair in any way shape or form looks good.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Oh and her face. :( It looks so bad.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Did Lilly explode and she decided to wear her?

    ReplyDelete
  63. I still hate Mary's hair. She looks like a soccer mom. Extensions, Mary.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Oh no, partypants!! I like her short hair so much better. She looks so much younger and about ten times more chic.

    Julia's hair on the other hand? I don't understand why she continues to trot around with that faux-half up/half down style... is there a reason her hair can't frame her face like Meghan's?

    ReplyDelete
  65. The problem with hair extensions is the same as with push up bras or people who use double-sided adhesive tape instead of a bra when wearing really tight tops: It's all fine if you're just there for the looks, but as soon as someone reaches 11th base while you are using either of those, you have a problem.

    ReplyDelete
  66. yeah. That video is a mess...

    She is horrible on camera and i always get distracted when she claps her sausage-y hands together.

    After that, they are all I can see yet I can still her her annoying voice, "me, me, I, I, me, I, me..."

    ReplyDelete
  67. ^ hear her annoying voice

    ReplyDelete
  68. I always liked having hair extensions. I wish I could still afford them. I don't care what anyone thinks, I never once had a bad hair day with extensions.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Re: Julia making $50/week when she first came to NYC, that's totally true. She was living with [REDACTED], and he was paying her way. I know because she told me.


    Also, add me to the list of folks who like Mary's hair shorter. It was so processed, thin and ratty-looking when it was long.

    ReplyDelete
  70. This is such an immature conversation. In the year 2009 what woman (or man) pushing 30 still doesn't have the balls to be like "hey guys, I'm getting a salad and a seperate check cuz I'm broke". I mean, yeah that sucks but seriously? This is such a 1998 problem, when everyone was still taking helicopters to the Hamptons and wishing to be just like Carrie Bradshaw. It's like they haven't noticed that the economy is in the toilet, and no one really has these problems right now...because EVERYONE'S BROKE. And if your friends think you're cheap because you stand up for yourself and don't get rolled over in to paying for their food, it's time to rethink your friends. Correction - it's time to get some self esteem and then rethink your friends. Right now, being broke and cheap is accepted. How fucking out of touch are they? Chances are that anyone who still cares about having the image of having money has a shitload of personality problems themselves.

    PS. By the way, none of this applies to Meghan because she's doing it all wrong. We all know you're rich, so in your case...pretending to be broke is silly and offensive - as if saying you're broke somehow makes you less out of touch. Same for Julia too, I suppose.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Not to sound out of touch, but how broke must they be if they can't afford a reasonable dinner at a reasonably priced restaurant? What could it cost? $25-$40?

    ReplyDelete
  72. 7:18 - Not in New York, and definitely not at the restaurants they would be frequenting.

    ReplyDelete
  73. I agree with most of what's been said here. These girls are not broke, obviously. But would everyone here still be criticizing them if they did readily admit to living off their parents still? And yeah, Julia paying $2800 for a 13x14 studio is ridiculous. I pay a lot less for a studio that's almost three times the size.

    ReplyDelete
  74. I'm pretty sure, Allison because this is just one item on a very long list of grievances. It would be a start, though.

    ReplyDelete
  75. I can't watch this...but if you are going to film multiple episodes in one day please change outfits.

    ReplyDelete
  76. allison, personally i'd have more respect for them if they were honest about living off their parents. $500 on a purse from Barney's? are you kidding me?! who here can relate to that? right now I'm supporting my myself, my two dogs and my mother and it's really really hard. it's insulting to have these girls giving advice and claiming they're "so broke" when it's not true. if my parents had the money to help me, they would. and i'd be very grateful for it. i have friends who's parents are able to support them financially and they don't pretend to know where i'm coming from or give me advice about how i should handle my money. sure, you can't help what you're born into. but at least be honest.

  83. You know anons, if you just apply that whole "ignore Julia and she'll go away" logic to my comments we'd both be a lot happier. In case you didn't learn it in Intarwebs 101, you shouldn't feed trolls.

    ReplyDelete
  84. i just don't get your obsession with dissing her. so she's gotten some positive feedback from the other commenters. why does it bother you soooo much?

    here's an idea, why don't you make a video and then everyone can go on and on about how cute and funny you are?

    ReplyDelete
  85. Why don't YOU let it go? Did you completely miss the sarcasm of the above comment, used to mask my apology to ches for my bad mood yesterday?

    Go fuck with someone else, buddy. You really don't want to start in on me.
