Julia: Even Family Friends Are Onto Her



In case you can't read it, it says:

Kimberly Vertolli: Wow--just found out that in addition to being a fan of Aung San Suu Kyi, Barack Obama, Congressman Mark Kirk, Chesley Sullenberger, and Ani Di Franco, I'm also a fan of Julia Allison?!?! Who knew?

On another note, Ms incorrigible one, have you sweet-talked someone into giving you a ticket to the WHACD? Are you still planning to stay with me? If you get a better offer, give me 24 hours heads up. Thanks, chica--nice to see Planet Julia still spinning wildly...
Yesterday at 02:31
Here and here are some previous examples of Jackles kissing Vertolli's ass. Vertolli must have been so thrilled to discover she'd been relegated to Jackles's sea of "fans."

Thanks to Ironicslanket for this find. It has since been deleted from Jackles's Facebook page! What a surprise!

  2. This really take the cake! How proud her parents must be. Don't forget, Julia was an intern for Kimberly's husband, Congressmen Kirk. Kirk and Wife are regular dinner companions.

  3. Ironic Slanket totes stole that handle from me! omgomg plagaristic.

  4. I love how she already seems well aware of JA's "better offer" tendencies, and her lunacy. Very nice!

    ReplyDelete
  5. I meant to type that Kirk and wife are dinner companions of the Baugher parents.

  6. I wonder how Julia explains these deletions to people she actually knows, if she in fact is the one to have deleted it. I don't know how FB comments work and who has deleting privileges. Obviously at least JA has them because I can't imagine her using any network with public comments that doesn't allow her to delete, delete, delete.

    It's one thing to delete comments from random critics, former fans, etc. but what do you say to a family friend or personal friend about why you deleted their comment on your page? "It doesn't coincide with the image I want to portray, sorry"? or "I must have accidentally deleted that one, er, oops"?

    ReplyDelete
  7. She would have been the one to delete it, I think. Either that or she would have had to ask Vertolli to do it.

    Only two people could have nuked it ... JA or Vertolli. For some reason, my money's on JA.

    It's either Julia or Ms. Kirk-V who deleted it. And you're correct. I wonder if she called Kirk to apologize and they agreed to delete the comment (unlikely because that would have been classy)? She probably just deleted it in a fury !

    ReplyDelete
  9. Partypants: I said I wanted it and even asked people to object. Nobody did, so I felt it was fair game. Was there a form I should have completed? I would buy you a case of vodka, but it's kind of hard to ship that from the old world... :-)

    For the record, Vertolli seems to be a regular facebook friend as well, at least they've been commenting on each other's pics. I know how stalkery this sounds, but I just went to see if I could still view Julia's private page for reasons I to this day do not understand.
    Also, maybe Vertolli had a glass of wine or two, wrote the comment and decided to delete it herself later. I don't know. Anyway, she clearly knows Julia well.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Speaking of being called out by your own friends, I like the gently mocking comments this one of friend of Julia's "rbillow" always seems to make on twitter. It seems like she doesn't have friends, just frenemies - except maybe Meghan who I see as more of a "fan" than friend to Julia anyway.

  11. Sorry, but I must take credit for ironic slanket, PP. Remember, I was rippin' on the Foo Campers and I made a remark about them "eating oysters in their ironic slankets, going Hey guys, is anyone tweeting this?"

    Unless you said it first.

    Yeah, that's pretty much been the highlight of my writing career thus far. My metaphorical Wired cover, if you will.

    Oh, yeah - and JA is a tool.

    ReplyDelete
  12. The important thing is that someone claimed "IronicSlanket" and now he/she is among us, regularly brightening our days and nights.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Actually, 3 people could have nuked it...JA, Vertolli...or Randi, Queen of Facebook.

    Speaking of Randi...I need to mention something old that's always bugged me. Why did Julia wear the same swimsuit as Randi at Randi's bachlorette party? And it was a very bridally, white swimsuit. Wtf? How does stuff like that not clue Randi in?

    ReplyDelete
  14. Randi's real friends HATE JA and it stems back in part to that white bathing suit stunt. They are the ones who deliberately left her name off the birthday cake, as well. They have warned Randi but she doesn't listen.

    ReplyDelete
  15. @12:28
    Jules purchased the swimsuit as a present for Randi and bought herself a matching one. She was not invited to Randi's wedding (because they weren't friends at the time the invitations went out) and certainly wasn't part of the wedding party. Randi disliked Julia when they were first introduced at SXSW. Then Julia courted Randi and got a last minute invite to the LV bridal shower. They literally became friends a month before the bridal shower.

  16. rbillow and FloreatMagdalen are Julia's old friends from high school and frequent anon tipsters here and elsewhere......

    ReplyDelete
  17. Actually, I would like to take credit for Ironic Slanket, also know as Ironikos Slankerta... which is what I used to call it when Demeter would put his robe over his arms during those cold Corinthian nights.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Speaking of Randi: I'm afraid Julia Allison is contagious and should be isolated from direct human contact. Why am I saying this?

    Read and cringe:

    randizuckerberg: It's my hubby's b-day today & we just arrived in DC. I'd love to plan a nice day for him & would be so appreciate for any ideas you have!about 3 hours ago from TwitterBerry

    Forget swine flu, this is the real deal...

    ReplyDelete
  19. Julia's mentioned countless times her love for Mark Kirk...family friend, interned on the hill for him and was in his wedding. So I don't this is ass kissing (for once). Although, it is odd that such a close fried would be relegated to the fan page.

    ReplyDelete
  20. "swine flu" could also describe Julia Allison's vapidly spreading disease. Symptoms include uncontrollable contorting, rapid weight gain, stupidity, banality, unoriginal ideas and general laziness. Looks like Randi Zuckerberg caught a particularly bad case from the pig formerly known as Miss Julia Baugher.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I don't think anyone thought it was ass kissing on Julia's part...I think it's just another example of her hurting the feelings/offending a supposed close friend. Right?tr

    ReplyDelete
  22. @ironic slanket I was just kidding xoxoxo

    ReplyDelete
  23. I think Metaphorical Wired Cover is a good band name, too.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I called it ass-kissing and I will stand by my description. Those were both fawning puff pieces with some ulterior motive, I'm sure.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Oh, Julia's article re: Kirk and Wife? TOTAL ASS KISSING. I was confused and though we were talking about facebookgate.

    ReplyDelete
  26. No worries, TJ. I was talking about the "stories" she wrote.

    ReplyDelete
  27. What I think is weird is that Julia said that she made all of the people who sent her friend requests that she "didn't have time" to sort through her "fans." Wouldn't you think that if she saw Kimberly Vertolli wanted to be her friend, she would have accepted the friend request? Then Kimberly shouldn't have been converted to a "fan" at all...

    ReplyDelete
  28. Seriously, that lady's remarks sounded like an aunt passive-aggressively telling her moochy niece to get off her ass and confirm some plans. I really love the "sweet talk someone into giving you a ticket" line - I would bet money THAT'S the line that got it deleted. Julia wants everyone to think she has people scrambling to get her into their events, not that she basically has to blow a doorman to get in.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Julia was the maid of honor in their wedding, which makes me find this even more distasteful.

  30. All of Julia's friends got turned into fans too.
    Happened to me, so i de-friended AND de-faned her.

  32. 1:10 Exactly! JA does not want anyone to think she has anything less than a 5 star hotel begging her to stay. Calling in favors is beneath her persona/caricature/impressario ways. Spinning her facade keeps her awake at nights.
    Have a great day! XO

    ReplyDelete
  33. Hmmm...the story in that second link in the post above is competently written. Good job, Momser!

    ReplyDelete
  34. You can't suck up to someone when you were the maid of honor in her wedding a decade ago.

    ReplyDelete
  35. this woman's husband was JA's boss during her "year-off" in college (read: gap year while she used her family connections to get into georgetown as a transfer student)?

    oh, so that's how she managed to land an internship on the hill. silly me, i thought she got it because of merit! i can only assume it was probably these same people that pulled strings to get this dope into georgetown...

    ReplyDelete
  36. Really, how's that? Being her maid of honor stops you from having to suck up to her when it suits you?

    ReplyDelete
  37. What's really sad is that Kimberly Vertolli-Kirk and Rep. Kirk are in the process of getting divorced. =(

    Which is obviously really sad. Though I am sure Julia's thought process involves "oh man I can no longer say I'm hanging out with a Congressman's wife anymore".

  40. Ah, a friend taking taking Julia down a peg in public. Nice.

    Note to Julia: Women don't have an expiration date. But It Girls sure do.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Am I the only person that thinks it's fucking WEIRD that Julia has the maid of honor at Valerie and Mark's wedding? Valerie, who seems a good 5-10 years older than Julia, doesn't have a better friend to ask than Julia?

    ReplyDelete
  42. Dahling - I think that is weird too. I don't know the dynamics of their relationship but it seems odd considering the age difference. Unless Julia was more of a littl sister to her, perhaps growing up their families were very close and they spent a lot of time together?

  44. Jules dad is a top fundraiser for Kirk. That's how she got her internship, friendship, and maid of honor invite.

    ReplyDelete
  45. @4:43

    I love how she's on a BUSY New York City street for a scheduled interview. Also, she's basically incoherent and can't explain what she does, why people like her, or her reactions.

  46. Ms Incorrigible oneMay 8, 2009 at 5:30 PM

    Planet Julia still spinning wildly...that is a mouthful.

    ReplyDelete
  47. She's also totally defensive and kind of snotty in that interview. You hear the real her come out when someone dares to speak to her while she's walking down the street doing an pre-scheduled interview. You think she might have had the professionalism to arrange to do it somewhere quiet.

    ReplyDelete
  48. @5:40

    Exactly, she barks at someone that she's doing an interview and, then, you here her saying under her breath that she's in a the hall of a business. Like she's on someone else's property conducting a pre scheduled interview and peeved that people are making noise. And then when the interviewer gets confused re: lip dubs, Julia is outraged!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Ms Incorrigible oneMay 8, 2009 at 5:50 PM

    She had crashed a taxi medallion office to talk and was incredulous that they asked her to leave. She managed to name drop Ashton; scorn the interviewer about what lip-synching is; contradicted herself when asked about lifecasting defending her selectivity in what she will and won't post..date life is off-limits (not to mention non-existent)and hailed the NS webbie award nomination as a great honor (failing to mention it was a purchased honor). FAIL

    ReplyDelete
  50. Don't forget the part where she excitedly relates how karma treated Owen Thomas to a layoff from Gawker for daring to disparge her stellar reputation. That little cunt!
    Have a great day! XO

    ReplyDelete
  51. I don't even think Owen was laid off...didn't he just move on? And she blamed it on karma!!!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Anyone who dares to criticize her will be punished and don't forget that bunnies!

  53. so this is what u get when money and privilege open doors ... and the money and the privilege are all that's there

    wow

    without the family connexions she'd be bagging groceries

    ReplyDelete
  54. TJ that is hilarious! She made it sound like he was let go and I feel for it!

    ReplyDelete
  55. I have no idea what the true story is but he does have another job that he's moving directly to and seems happy about it!

    ReplyDelete
  56. unrelated mary thing here. but she just bought a top in blatant knock-off burberry plaid. interesting coming from the person who got all heated up when donna karan "knocked off" her bag design.

  58. Here:
    http://www.businessinsider.com/owen-thomas-leaving-valleywag-for-nbc-2009-5

    Apparently he'll act as new Managing Editor at NBC Bay Area, one of the new online regional sites launched by NBC. I don't know in which realit this spells lay off, but if Julia thinks so, it must be true.

    ReplyDelete
  59. JA is pathetically devoid of even a trace of charm or humor. The comment about lip dubs being x-rated was the interviewer's light-hearted attempt at brevity but JA took great offense and stammered she doesn't have a sex tape, she sings Disney songs damnit!
    Have a great day!

    ReplyDelete
  60. She's also proud that the two other media outlets that criticized her have now "folded." I don't know if I'd say things like that with a smirk on my face given the state of the economy, especially in the industry that I consider myself apart of.

    ReplyDelete
  61. owen thomas was not fired. spin spin, julia. and he is still contributing to gawker. he will be managing editor at nbc bay area. go owen!

    we should watch the WHCA dinner saturday, to see if jackles gets up to no good. c-span has a live feed! #nerdprom

    ReplyDelete
  62. JA will do whatever it takes to get noticed at the WHCD. She needs a Gawker nod for validation.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Maybe Jankles will get turned away at the door of the dinner and she will crawl through a window.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Gawker called her a "brassy Midwestern social-climber" in a post contrasting her and Lydia Hearst. (Or something - I don't recall the exact wording and am incredibly lazy).
