Julia: Doling Out Advice To A "Reader," Nudge Nudge Wink Wink




Remember how Jackles once claimed her inbox had thousands of unread messages because she was just SO busy and that's why she never really had time to read them? And yet she always seems to instantly reply to the ones from people who e-mail her astonished about her latest public display of insanity ("I find it strange you're taking it so seriously! Lighten up! Have a great day! XO Julia") or from the sympathetic fan whose writing style is just like hers and is seeking Jackles's Oprah-esque, The Secret-y wisdom, because Jackles is so smart like and everything. Funnily enough, so many of these e-mails arrive in the middle of the night!

Like "L" here, who was just desperate for advice at 2 a.m. from a failed businesswoman, a notorious mentalcase and the laughing stock of the Internet.


Reader Email: "everything's a big question mark"

Hi Julia,

In one week, I’ll be a college graduate and unlike seemingly all my peers, and contrary to everyone’s belief about this “burden being lifted from my shoulders,” I’m not excited about it in the least. In fact, I’m dreading it. I love school, I love learning, and I love my life here. After this, everything’s a big question mark.

I’m moving back home, away from my friends and back to the same old grind. I don’t have a job back there yet and fear not being able to get one and just living an endless cycle of applying to jobs over and over again. I’m also leaving behind my first and only love of my life so far—we’re staying together, but it’s just so painful…and I’m still here!

I haven’t even left yet and I’m an emotional wreck. Anyway, maybe you don’t really know why I’m writing this to you but maybe I don’t either. I guess it’s just nice to talk to someone honestly, who maybe doesn’t know me, but might care about my plight anyway. Plus, chances are you’re awake…Thanks for reading…

You were right - I’m awake :)

And I’ve been there. Beeeeeelieve me, I’ve been there.

Here’s the deal: do not be afraid. (sound familiar?)

Everything - EVERYTHING - in life is here to teach you something. The more receptive you are to that lesson, the more life can give you the joy you seek. If you don’t listen, life will try to get your attention in a painful manner.

Instead of having nightmares about finding a job, why don’t you sit down - right now - and put on paper what your “ideal life” is.

Make a list … like this:

My ideal life is …
1.
2.
3.
4.

List twenty things. Anything! Paint a very vivid picture. Be as detailed as possible - the more specific you can be, the better. (“I’ll have an apartment with two bathrooms and a pink kitchen and windows facing the east.” “I’ll eat dinner with my boyfriend every evening.” “I’ll have a career that allows me to use my talent for public speaking.” etc)

Do it right now, okay?

Then start to believe it. DO NOT THINK ABOUT THE HOW. The how is not important. Just focus on what you want - the end. The how? Leave that to the universe.

I PROMISE YOU THIS WORKS.

Just remember - if life answered all of your question marks … what would you have left to discover?

And yet this act of grand kindness to a complete "stranger" still couldn't cause Jackles to fall asleep. At 6:30 a.m., there was this Tweet:

"Wake up happy, chase a cloud, savor a memory, laugh out loud. Whisper a promise. Whistle a tune. Fall asleep with a smile for the moon."


She is SO. HAPPY! Life is SO awesome, people!!! All-nighters and pretending to be Oprah makes for such a FULFILLING EXISTENCE, people! Don't worry about the how!! Just about the what!!! That's what she's done, and look at what a rousing success her life is!


p.s. Thanks to a reader for the awesome Hunter S. Thompson poster.

  2. Julia the Jobless Blogger also just bought her mother $100-$200 worth of makeup for her birthday. Hope grandma doesn't find out that Julia is blowing the funds she sends her on the daughter in law she doesn't speak to!

  6. this is entirely off topic, but julia allison is now in full-blown reputation whitewash and history rewrite mode:

  8. I am under the impression that Jill's rebranding herself to go after some type of PR job. She's obviously positioning herself as some kind of publicity expert with all her current press blogging bullshit rework of her image. I dunno, that's the vibe I am getting from it.

    ReplyDelete
  9. This is ridiculous, and updated just this morning! Huh! I wonder who could have been so busy at work in the wee small hours?

  10. How about some accuracy? "Wake up chubby, hide in a slanket, delete a post, paste a quote."

    ReplyDelete
  11. Julia also bragged about how she bought her brother a 42 inch flat screen for Christmas and bought D a kindle (with her parent's help of course). I do not understand her bragging about buying gifts for other people. Is it to make herself seem charitable or kind? Assigning a dollar value to her largesse? It's so tacky and gross.

    ReplyDelete
  12. That press site is pointless. Everything is old and most quotes aren't sourced or dated. If Julia Baugher thinks she's going to get hired off of that, she's stupider than we all thought.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I'm totally getting a kick out of Julia's TONY article about getting internet famous. Sounds like someone should take her own advice ...

    "Your site’s look is everything. Choose simple, well-laid-out clean design over complex, confusing garishness."
    And the horizontal scrolling? Yes, that's "simple, well-laid out, clean design." Light boxes? Clearly indicative of "simple, well-laid out, clean design."

    "Canned publicity stunts—like ├╝berproduced TV news segments—are too obvious for the Web, and just turn people off. Your stunts must have a hint of rawness—ideally, they shouldn’t be obvious as stunts at all, instead serving only to get you a little attention and remind the viewer to come back into your fold, where you have the real attraction: your [whatever it is you do]."
    Hmmm...going to HBS? Mary/Meghan leaving NS? Flirtations with married hedge fund managers on their private jets? Privacy violations galore? Julia, when your site's only form of traffic is one fake PR stunt after another, perhaps you should really consider that whole idea behind the business...or, um, actually get that single, unifying idea behind the business. When your personality sucks and you remain culturally ignorant, it's hard to stake a brand on a fab personality.

    "The depth comes with constant updating, working on your content." HAHAHAHA. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

    "There really is no expiration date on the Internet—there is no “too old” or “so yesterday.” As long as your wireless has a signal, you’re still in the game. And that’s really the best part of the Web: It’s uniquely suited to both wannabes and has-beens." Actually, you said that women DO have an expiration date. But let's be honest - women who build their careers and stake their reputations on their looks alone do have an expiration date. I'll agree with you there - and thankfully, Julia Allison's expiration date is fastly approaching with every new inch of arm jiggle she packs on.

    ReplyDelete
  14. "with every new inch of arm jiggle she packs on."

    HA HA! I would say her expiration date is approaching with every new chin she sprouts, but that's just me.

  15. my theory: j* is a self hating geigh. it explains so much. the inability to have relationships with men, the self hatred, the self hatred, the self hatred

  16. Is anyone else at just absolute ennui with this corndog? I mean, RBNS is still funny, but I'm just so tired of Julia Allison right now.

    ReplyDelete
  17. @9:42 You poor dear. Why don't you take a rest. You deserve it.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Until today, I wanted to believe that Jackles didn't write her own fan/dear julia letter. Now, I'm not so sure. This letter is WAY too close to her own writing style. The vocab. and sentence structure is identical.

    I hear you, PP!

    ReplyDelete
  19. pp, Julia Allison is one tedious mutherfucker. It's completely understandable to get tired of her mentally retarded antics. It's like watching a bug fly into a window over and over again. Mindless work distraction, but you get bored of it after a while.

    ReplyDelete
  20. pp -- i was for a few days but then i came back and rbns just keeps bringing it

    ReplyDelete
  21. re: Julia Allison being a self hating lesbian. It would explain a lot, especially her obsession with her female friends like Sarah Lacey and Randi Zuckerberg. Girl crush, much?!

    ReplyDelete
  22. It's almost too easy when there's no content:
    She was abused!
    She's a closet case!
    She has a trust fund from her Grandma!
    She's secretly angling for a PR job!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I know right! Almost as easy as making shit up about commenters.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Preaching to the choir. I have not the slightest interest in the backstory of other commenters.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Abused, no, just a girl trapped in a spiral due to never recovering from not being the center of her parent's world once her brother was born. I got that impression often and feel it's only exacerbated by the fact that he's very intelligent, can actually maintain a relationship and is probably applying himself in the way her parents wish she would. She's been acting out for years now.

    ReplyDelete
  26. this HST thing is an obvious stunt to get attention and distract from the fact that she is quickly fading back into obscurity -- the "julia's press" tumblr is another effort to fight off the inevitable...

    ReplyDelete
  27. Stuff like this kind of makes me feel bad for her. I mean, she's writing herself a letter about her own problems, slightly veiled so that she can feel like others feel that way too, then replying to herself with what she would like to hear, then posting in on the internet with the hopes to give the impression she's smart and accomplished and totally in control.

    I mean most people have, like, some sort of friend they can go to and say "this is how I feel right now" or can at least be honest with themselves about it and admit they are not in a good place.

    To me she seems so delusional at this point she's not even trying to fool others, she's trying to fool herself. Poor girl. :(

    ReplyDelete
  28. Anon 1017, you forgot about her secretly being a call girl, which I really believe is true. She's too transparent about it- not even trying to hide it. The three "dates" in one day, the blowing money on lounge chairs and designer makeup when she has no apparent source of income, the late night dates, the staying up all night and sleeping all day. The repressed sexuality/virgin whore issues. The no drinking claims. The slutty lolita costumes. SO OBVIOUS.

    ReplyDelete
  29. The person who said "Julia is acting out" is exactly right. Her psych evaluation would literally read, "Julia is a 27 year old woman with a pattern of acting out that began in her early childhood and has lasted into adulthood."

    Personality pathology 101 folks!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Even worse! I was trying to be generous. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Jesus Christ, that is the worst advice ever.

    Things DON'T JUST HAPPEN. You have to work your ass off to get what you want. Writing it down is not enough. You absolutely have to think about the "HOW" and make a plan.

    I wanted to go to grad school. I made a plan, studied, wrote, and got in. I didn't blog about it and then "let it unfold."

    ReplyDelete
  32. The how is everything.

    ReplyDelete
  33. "I PROMISE YOU THIS WORKS."

    Nice ripoff from the Secret Julia. And Really? How has it worked out for you so far? What have you achieved? Are you actually happy? Pretending life's bumps in the road or unanswered questions are all there to "teach you a lesson" is akin to not being able to admit a failure when you see it.

    Julia is such a self help obsessed retard. That email was completely full of shit. No wonder she is a total failure in nearly everything she has done so far in her life. Her own advice is her worst enemy.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I also love it when people give very general advice and "swera it works".

    Like, why is Julia giving advice about making dreams come true? She's unemployed, and quickly becoming unemployable.

    I guess because she thinks she accomplished a few things; the Star gig, etc. But she lost everything, and so quickly. And the love advice stuff? Holy shit. She has no credibility. No relationships over 3 months - and if that's not what her advice seekers are looking for, she seems to have very little and very little sex dating aorund. And her ideas about love, and sex, and marriage and things like that are not only unhealthy, but she seems in PAIN about them. This is not a clear-eyed expert I'd ask advice form.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Do not think about the how = the abject laziness that defines Julia Allison's life. She wants to make a list, think about the list and get everything her heart desires. Har har. And staying up all night, making lists, and sitting on your flabby ass in a snuggie has gotten you... exactly what so far?

    ReplyDelete
  36. Julia,

    No one will buy your dating advice because your track record speaks for itself. I'm not criticizing you because you're single. That would be your defensive retort. It's the fact that every guy you ever dating talks trash constantly about you. I can't say that about most people with exs that I know.

    And NO ONE is going to hire you for college and HS "rah rah" secret type seminars. I'm guessing you'd like to make a career out of your little talks since that's that only thing going for you right now---

    People who are inspiring gives these talks. People who have triumphed over adversity. People who are unique, funny, and polished speakers.

    You are none of the above.

    xoxoxoxo Have a Nice Day!

    Bunny love!

  37. Now Julia Allison's twitter bio says "Bio A human exclamation point."

    Exactly!

    She should title her talk, How to Be a Flash in the Pan or How to Die a Sudden Death or How to Jump the Shark.

    ReplyDelete
  39. People who can give self help advice on finding success in life or love, um USUALLY HAVE SUCCESS IN LIFE OR LOVE. Julia Baugher is single, unemployed, unemployable and is totally dependent on her family for living expenses. She is acutely unqualified to give ANY type of advice, outside of where to find headbands and tutus.

    ReplyDelete
  40. And even that her former interns are probably more competent at, 11.30.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Can somebody point out the things that make everyone so sure Julia wrote the "reader email" herself? Not doubting or anything, but I haven't been reading her stuff long enough to get it (and I'd kinda love to spare myself the pain of combing her archives just to be in on the joke.)

    ReplyDelete
  42. Oh, and in Julia's world it definitely isn't about the HOW when it comes to getting what she wants. It's all about the WHO will be the next enabler. So far we've had parents, grandmother, some partners and lately Randi Zuckerberg.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Lately I've been thinking if I had a trust fund I'd probably be a hermit hiding in a slanket all day too - so I sort of feel like I should stop judging Princess Pepto Palace.

    ReplyDelete
  44. @11:33

    I am not 100% absolutely certain. I just think it sounds a lot like her longer blog posts which we don't get to read much anymore. I've been doubtful in the past that she wrote her own fan mail (when others here have been pretty sure) but I'm beginning to believe...

    ReplyDelete
  45. Anon11:33, it's the word choice, sentence structure and punctuation that give it away as hers. Also the fact that all of her "reader" emails show up in the middle of the night and are responded to almost immediately. The emails also "agree" with whatever bullshit or problem Julia Allison is spouting off about at the moment, and serve to reaffirm or reassure her of her choices. Just read a couple of her old reader emails from her blog and you will very quickly see they are all the same - and fake.

    ReplyDelete
  46. This is writing de Julia, "In fact, I’m dreading it. I love school, I love learning, and I love my life here. After this, everything’s a big question mark."

    ReplyDelete
  47. It would be so much more interesting if she just posted all her hate mail and either didn't respond, or responded in a witty, erudite manner. She'd have wagons full of content then.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Right, PP?!!!

    As I sad, If Julia would be like, "I'm a cunt who gets away with doing nothing while Let It Unfold Grandma writes me checks each month," I'd be on board. Post your hate mail! Be the snarky bitch you want to be but without all the passive aggression.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Many of her reader emails are often overly long and go into great detail that is perfectly tailored for Julia's "advice" which is often a rehashing of whatever stupid mantra she is following that day. Just do a search for reader email on her blog and you can see them all together in the search results - SO obvious that a majority of them are totally made up. I mean really... how many people actually take the time to write 600 word emails to her asking for sage wisdom and advice??? That should be tip off number one.

  52. "Dear Julia,
    You are worthless trust funder with no life, you're getting fat and ugly, and you have no skills. Go die in the forest."

    "Dear reader,
    At least I never worry about my bills since the family pays for it. I never worry about the economy, bitches, and I LOVE IT. I do what I want, when I want, and buy what I want. You don't. SUCK IT HATERZ!

    That's content I would LOVE.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Julia Allison's "reader" emails are about as real as her "conversations with Dan."

    ReplyDelete
  54. Also, Hunter S. ThompsEn aside, Jackles is usually a pretty good speller. Not many e-mails fired off in the middle of the night by someone in distress are perfectly spelled. Yet the "reader" e-mails to JA rarely contain a single spelling mistake.

    That's why it's easy to tell the trolls on RBNS are maybe only one or two people. It's always the same stupid spelling mistakes and keyboard typos over and over again ... very telling.

  58. But she can't really do that, partypants, can she? If she did, she would admit to everything she did before being a mere facade. Also, I don't think she's loaded enough to pull this off convincingly. It's one thing if despicable Paris Hilton does it, but Julia? Not really. Also, your draft would pretty much be the only reply she had. If the hatemail were to be hilarious, on the other hand, this could still work.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Julia, if you are reading this blog, please get real. Start posting your hate mail and respond with your middle finger. Tell us how you're verging on broke-ness and hate to move back to Chicago town with your 'rents. How about 1500 words of how your life has REALLY gone the last year, with details of your slide into oblivion? Cmon Jilly. This is your chance. You can write that "I'm at rock bottom" autobiography piece that everyone loves to read!

  60. Has the grandmother money ever been proven or is that just another commenter believing they know everything?

    ReplyDelete
  61. Hey, JAB -- how many of those life goals have you accomplished?

    Are you having a romantic dinner with your boyfriend tonight? Does he play with Lily and tell you that while pink isn't his favorite color, he would love anything you had a hand in?

    When he wakes up after one of those amazing nights and sees you studying yourself in the mirror as you apply another coat of mascara, does he tell you that you're crazy to cover up your natural beauty? That he wishes you could always look the way you last night, makeup-free and in sweats and comfortable?

    When you get one of your patented Julia Allison ideas -- to go to HBS, to dye your hair red, hell, to do a lipdub of "Dress You Up in My Love" in the American Girls flagship store -- does he look at you affectionately and tell you you're crazy -- but that he wouldn't have you any other way?

    Does he leave you cute comments on your lipdub, referring to some inside joke the two of you have but for the life of you cannot remember how it got started?

    When you have a bad day -- maybe the hate mail has gotten to be too much, maybe it's dawning on you that some of your "life goals" just aren't going to become reality -- is there anyone who is sincerely there for you? Is there anyone in your life at all who brings you your favorite takeout, rubs your back as you retell the day with tears in your eyes, offers to take on some of your busy workload so you can rest and recharge?

    Julia, a baker's dozen of regurgitated cupcakes floating in a toilet bowl would be better equipped to offer advice than you at this point. You are a selfish, insecure woman who hides behind a flimsy cover of kindness and optimism, and the fact that no one in your life cares about you enough to tell you that is both tragic and predictable.

    The world is starting to see through your veneer(s). It's only a matter of time before you do as well.

  62. Anon: Grandmother money is sheer speculation. Others wonder if it's escort service money. But somehow, this chick has the money to pay almost $3,000 a month in living expenses, plus fly all over the place, drop a couple of hundred at Sephora for Momsers and to spend out several more hundred for some high-end chaise lounge. YET SHE HAS NO JOB.

    Ok heh's da deal: Julia gets dividends from her stock in the company that produces the Rabbit pocket rockets. She also has shares in Hostess and Sprinkles cupcakes, and Altoids. Her Nana Moneybucks also sends her money, and she has the annual trust fund transfer. Course she usually blows tru dat in about a month and comes begging Nana Moneybags again.

  67. an escort -- genius.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Unless the "sex is so icky and I don't do it until after 11 dates and after he says he loves me" is just a big facade aimed at covering up how she really earns her living.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Speaking of money and not making any from your blog...mary twitters:

    "Honestly, I can't sleep b/c I feel like you're going to beat me up about the necklace I love."

    Seems, trust-fund texan, bought a necklace for $760 [and that's with 20% off].

    then in this post, she is really feeling jules!

    "This is exactly how I feel right now….pretty much about everything. The funny thing is that while one aspect of my life is in a peak, another is stuck in a valley. I’m sure you’ll speculate on which part of my life is where, but I’ll tell you right now you’re wrong. You’re wrong because my evaluation changes daily. Which is probably why I’m still in transition mode in Houston. Coupled with the fact this is home, you should expect to see me here for a little longer."

    "My friends in Houston have always been curious about my chosen lifestyle because it’s so far off the beaten path of the majority of native Houstonians we know. I don’t expect them, you, anyone to understand. But if you’re reading this blog, I invite you to take the journey with me. Flying by the seat of my pants is not glamorous in the least. It’s a daily challenge that I enjoy most of the time."

    "Basically what I’m saying is that you don’t have to fully grasp why or how I do what I do. Just watch IT UNFOLD."

    Just why do they think they are so fascinating to watch?

    ReplyDelete
  70. Bitch please. Most Houstonians are in street gangs or on drugs. Houston is the armpit of fucking Texas. The rich people live in Austin/DFW, stupid whore.

    Texans from Dallas consider Houston natives to be trash. Just saying.

  71. It must KILL Julia that her pathetic Hunter S. Thompson comparison hasn't been posted on Gawker or even made it to Tumbler's "popular stuff" feed.

  90. Unless she's being rented by the low-dollar hour, there is no way this play-by-my-rules control freak would be an escort. She isn't even maintaining herself well enough for that right now. The thing I feel lends credence to the situation is how close she is to her grandmother , which I still think lends to an ulterior motive - $$, being able to feign being old money, name-droppiness, etc; plus the frequency with which she posts about their encounters when she hasn't spoken to her mother in years. I mean, I'm the type that wouldn't be one to just blatantly ignore family members like that, but I love my mother to death and would limit my exposure to or at least open mentions of an ensuing relationship with the one relative that she isn't on good terms with if not just for her sake. Grandma Baugh is also the only elder you ever hear about from Julia, and perhaps because she has the impressive 'pedigree' (er) that Julia wants all to believe she's part of. Speculating.

    Does that mean that they reassigned whoever had Meghan as their name? And gave it to this bitch instead?

  99. So I was thinking about this Julia Allison is an escort thing and thinking it makes a lot of sense.

    Think about it- the constant flux between being totally broke (braying about being too broke to afford shoes, having to move in with a roomate to afford manhattan rent, etc) coupled with the lavish spending- hundreds of makeup for momsers, a new chaise, travel.

    Also the late spur of the moment Sunday night 11:30pm "dates."

    She is a perfect golddigging daddy issues escort type!

    This isn't the first time she's had some serious turn around problems with "reader" e-mail. Does anyone else remember that other one, from a few months ago, just as RBNS was starting up? The time stamp for the "reader" e-mail was the middle of the night and, boom, JA responded with 1,500 in like 4 minutes?

    Nearly impossible to prove (Charlsie? You out there?), but you know, in your gut she writes her own fan mail. People just dont write like her "fans" (some, not all) do. It's one of her blind spots: she doesn't read enough other sources - like magazines, newspapers, even othe rblogs - to know what stands out like a sore thumb.

  103. Libel - but its not libel unless you imply it to be factual. Here are RBNS we always admit that its pure speculation. Sorry, Jules.

    ReplyDelete
  104. Can we please stop e-mailing her? This Hunter S. Thompson crap was so incredibly stupid. The fact that she could insight such hatred in you guys kind of baffles me. You gave her what her childish needs wanted. Ick.

    ReplyDelete
  105. I really don't understand the emailing either. What is the point?

    ReplyDelete
  106. ^^ AGREED anon 3:00. Doesn't everyone here realize by now that Julia saying and doing the most outrageously stupid and insipid stuff possible is all a desperate cry for attention? Emailing and tweeting her in outrage only reinforces to her that people are listening and - in her mind - she needs to keep acting out. It's akin to a child throwing temper tantrums. Yukk it up all you want to over here, but if you ignore the chubby beast, the chubby beast will go away. It's like feeding trolls, and Julia is Troll #1 of the Internet.

    ReplyDelete
  107. Oh, come on. COME ON. Julia Allison, an escort? Guys, think about what you're saying! Totally apart from the fact that she would be way too terrified of having somebody find out she was hooking -- that's a reputation-ruiner that even she could not spin -- this is a woman who, as has been made clear time and time again, is incapable of discretion. Hookers aren't just paid to unsheath their golden vaginas for moneyed old men, they're paid to not tell anyone about it. No high-class escort service, i.e. the kind that would allow her to afford her lifestyle on just a few "Sunday night dates" per month, would EVER hire someone who has publicly proved herself to be physically incapable of keeping a secret.

    ReplyDelete
  108. Ha, I agree. Julia Allison is not an escort. Although it would be so awesome if she was. But, no, she's not.

    ReplyDelete
  109. I don't think Julia is an escort either but it's certainly funny.

    For someone who time and time again has stated she can't respond to emails in real time, I've never waited longer than 10 minutes for a response. However, her responses are 10 words long and mostly just "Have a nice day!"

    This is a longer response written in the same manner as the question. I'm thoroughly convinced she penned the fan mail.

    Once a cheater (i.e. her plagarize/mommy written column at La Hoya), always a cheater!

    Yes, it's very _strange_ that she wasn't invited. So many of her friends were there! But not Julia! Maybe her friends were asked not to bring her! Explains her tweet, "spending this chilly Sun afternoon workin' at mah desk". Chilly? You bet.

    ReplyDelete
  120. So she's well on the road to Pariahville then as it appears. Interesting that she didn't just go and crash the thing especially with a number of her friends there she would've easily gotten away with it.

    What's with this nonsense about wishing she could activate comments? Didn't they kill comments early into the project because they couldn't handle them? Who she thinks is going to buy that sudden change of heart? Feeling lonely in the pink shoebox maybe?

    ReplyDelete
  121. She just talked about how she can't handle comments because they are too "mean" at that non-motivational talk she did at some bar. I think there's a video of it somewhere online, maybe on this site. Now, some few weeks later, the reason is because the"API doesn't support it." Uh huh.

    ReplyDelete
  122. Oh no, Julia!
    Please don't activate comments on your site!

    That would suck so much for us over here.

  127. About that party yesterday that Julia wasn't invited to...Rachelle Hruska is the un-Julia, and her very existence must put Julia over the top. Well-liked, smart, very very pretty, not a phony, knows a lot of people, goes to great parties, seems to have quite the apartment (grand piano in the middle of the living room), and Guest of a Guest is quite popular. She's living Julia's fantasies while Julia is home with the dog, googling herself.

    ReplyDelete
  128. Far be it for me to defend JABa, but she spent around $100 at Sephora, not "hundreds."

    As for the anon who has her panties in a wad over buying nice makeup, I happen to prefer Sephora and other stores like that because I want to try colors and stuff before buying them. I look at stuff in the drugstores, but more often than not, what I've bought in Duane Reade and CVS usually disappoints me when I get it home and finally get to try it. A $7 lipstick is no bargain when the color isn't right on me, is too matte and/or is too sheer - and can't be returned.

    ReplyDelete
  129. $100 at Sephora, $400 for a lounge chair... how does a woman who is not visibly employed afford this? I have a job and I still can't blow that kind of cash. She admitted that Nonsociety made $60,000 last year (presumably split between business partners) and she has no freelance gigs to speak of plus living expenses that she says are about $2800 a month. That doesn't add up, any way you slice it. I think she gets major bucks from parents or grandma (it would explain why she talks about that one grandma and no other relatives with such frequency and love) or has some shady deal to be Karp's kept woman or something like that.

    I'm sure Jackles wanted to stay home. Remember, she told us today that for every 1 hour of social time she needs 4 hours of alone time. Also she wrote just today, interestingly enough, that she'd like to stay in 5 nights per week-

    SO,um, she just didn't want to go. That's HER story and I'm sticking to it.

  134. Nothing wrong with shopping at Sephora, but I'm going to have to argue that Julia "wtf kind of nailpolish name is Schiap OH BUT THIS IS NARS" Allison doesn't do so for quality and color-matching. Let's not even begin to get into how strange it was that she's getting all braggy over what she was doing for mom (even better than mother's day! Wait, what? Despite two earlier tweets that day, she had nothing to say about mother's day until the this fact was pointed out on RBNS? Shocking!) because it was an impetus to discuss all the pricey makeup she'd purchased. After the competely gauche and irrelevant "David Karp $1K tip story", I can't buy it.

    ReplyDelete
  135. Guess Julia hasn't found anyone to leech off in the Hamptons this summer. She must be unphotographable in a bathing suit these days anyway.

    ReplyDelete
  136. I looove how Julia Baugher changes her story when it suits her. Now she likes to stay home. Just like Carrie Bradshaw was "over" after she got fired from TONY.

    Does anyone else get the idea that Julia, like, NEVER EVER leaves her apartment? Every time she does the smallest outing - a street fair or a dinner - you get blog diarrhea with about 5 or 10 posts in a row.

    She used to travel for conferences and such, but as those dry up completely I really get the idea that she is an antisocial hermit/outcast/pariah who likes to pretend she's really an introvert "exhuasted" by parties. But true to her revisionism, how much do you want to bet she will spin this into moving home to "find herself" and "take some alone time?" That blog post about her really LIKING to say home (really guys!! I swear!!!) sure was conveniently posted around the time she wasn't going to/invited to that party with her supposed peers.

    ReplyDelete
  137. That Sephora tweet was more gauche behavior, just like the bragging about the Kindle, her brother's TV Christmas present and the $1,000 tip story. Little Miss Freshwater Pearls is small town, tacky, aspirational trash.

  138. When I first moved to NYC I met a girl that graduated the same time I did. We were both about 24 or 25. The first time I went to her apartment I almost fainted. Park Avenue in the 90's, doorman building, leather furniture, state of the art kitchen appliances. The works. She kept telling everybody that she rented the apartment herself and pays her own rent. Years later I found out from an ex-friend of hers that the place was owned by her parents that they bought as an investment and let her live there for free. I know a ton of women with these incredible apartments who work entry level jobs and barely get by and all of them have the same deal. The parents bought a place for an investment, let the daughters live there for a few years, then they sell it for a profit. Doesn't she live on the same floor as Rosie? Rosie doesn't rent.

  142. Not defending the anon who complained about shopping at Sepora vs. drugstore but just FYI to the commenter who said otherwise, all the major chain drugstores I've had experience with including CVS do accept returns on makeup including opened and tested items. I think that is a pretty standard policy for most such stores.

    ReplyDelete
  143. I don't have a problem with Julia buying name brand makeup for her mom.

    What's annoying: Julia listing off every single brand that she purchased for her mom. What would have sufficed is "I bought makeup for my mom from Sephora! She wanted to update her look, so it was a great birthday present :)" ... or something along those lines. But not our "REAL!FRESHWATER!PEARLS!" Julia - she insists on listing off every single freaking brand name. Julia equates expensive brand names to how much something or someone is worth, never mind the quality behind the object. Not suprising, seeing as how she views friendships as a string of ivy league schools and titles at media and tech companies.

    ReplyDelete
  144. As far as that "reader" email was concerned, has anyone noticed that her email address link is now no where to be found on the site? As RG says, "Innnnteresting!" If what people are saying is true, that she writes these emails to herself just to respond, this last one might point out a lot about how she feels right now. Not good. I keep waiting for the day that she films herself screaming and crying and cutting off all her hair. As much as I find her to be an obnoxious person, I don't wish nervous breakdowns on anyone.

  145. Random question that just popped in my head. Do Julia (and Mary, for that matter) claim their freebies on their taxes as income? Don't they have to? I don't really know, but if so, someone should call the IRS. You know, just for fun.

    Through the use of PR and digital tools like Flickr, Blogger, Tumblr and Twitter, Allison has managed to get herself profiled in the New York Times, Wired and on the cover of Time Out New York.

    "She managed to get herself famous on a dollar and a dream," he said. "Imagine what we should be able to do with our brands and our resources."

    Julia's Bad Press, that quote does indeed make me want to kill myself.
    I think the reason she is always mentioning brand names is that she hopes these companies will reward her with freebies in exchange for "promoting" them on her blog.
    Partypants: I'm now following you on twitter! You're hilare!! and i totally agree that if Julia did suddenly "get real" and start posting hate mail, giving us the truth about her life and telling us to fuck off, I would totally give her pageviews.
