Julia: Radio Interview
Our commenters are abuzz about the radio interview Jackles did this week while wandering the streets. Apparently she is far too busy Twitter-harassing people to have actually arranged to sit in a quiet place and do the interview from a landline.
In this interview, Jackles:
1. Erroneously states Owen Thomas has been laid off from Gawker and is getting his karma for writing the truth about her. She also revels in the fact that Valleywag has now been folded into Gawker, again suggesting some sort of karmic payback for how mean the site has apparently been to her (mean = accurate on Planet Jackles.) In fact, Owen Thomas left Valleywag for greener pastures -- running NBC Bay Area, to be exact, owned by the same network running JA's taxicab shitshow. Maybe not so smart, Jackles.
2. Has a low-level freakout when someone has the gall to speak to her as she conducts the interview. Apparently it was someone kicking her out of whatever building she entered to try to conduct the interview in a place where her connection didn't keep dropping and where it wasn't too noisy.
3. Gets her back up when the interviewer doesn't know what lip-dubbing is. Naima Jones (not Bree Baker, a commenter has kindly corrected me) from Radio GoDaddy also had the nerve to make some joke about JA's lipdubs being X-rated.
