TMI Weakly: Is Meghan Touched?



I watched this for the first time today without the sound; I just wasn't sure I was up for another instalment of 8,000-decibel heehawing from the Jackles-ass. I do recommend it for laughs. Just watch the weird preening and head-nodding and eye-blinking that Jackles does, and the look on her face when Adrien and/or Mary are talking. She's about as skilled at masking her loathing as she is at pretending she's addressing hundreds of fans from a lectern at MIT.

And speaking of preening, why is Meaghan seemingly determined to turn herself into the Jim Carrey of TMI Weakly? Watch her mannerisms during the Caress commercial. It is hard to watch, it's so embarrassing.

  1. That guy creeps the fuck out of me.

    And aren't those jumpSUITS, not jumpERS? Jumpers are like, overalls with skirts.

  2. Why did they choose to call their show TMI weekly. TMI normally stands for "too much information." But they actually provide less information than you might have expected (how does it get decided that Jumpers will be in is something I would like to know)

  4. idgafffffffffffffff I like Adrien. He and Mary actually provided content. Julia provides stuff like "Wine is icky!" "I like white in summer!" "Black is icky!". Meghan (who should now be referred to as MegHAM) provides :D :p :X :O :!!!! : OOOOOO etc, and nodding. Lots of nodding.

    Come to think of it...maybe this is a ploy to have more views of the show. Because it's kind of worthwhile to watch it once and get the jist, watch it again and focus on how cracky Julia is, watch again to feel uncomfortable while MegHAM hams it up and finally...watch it again to see Mary barely hide her disdain for the whole situation through subtle, passive aggressive facial movements. BRILLLLIANT!

  5. The fidgeting really bothers me. I especially can't stand when she fidgets with that fake mop hair.

    The espadrilles faux pas was fantastic. Mary looked horrified!

  6. Adrien looks like Pee Wee Herman. Can we call him that?

    ReplyDelete
  7. Yes. We christened him "Wee Pee Wee" when he first turned up.

  8. Megans very cokey.

  9. Does anyone think Mary only stuck around because of the Bravo show, and bailed once that fell through? She was on a previous reality show, after all, and reality show people just seem to go from show to show.

    I actually liked Mary's "Pocket Gay"(from Will and Grace) as well...I thought he was cute, had good chemistry with Mary, and I thought i detected some passive-agressive hatred toward Julia. You can bet that he and Mary spend all kinds of time saying catty things about Julia when she's not around.

  11. I think you're partially right, The Brain. Mary possesses only limited quantities of intellect, charity and insight, but I do think she's reasonably shrewd and sort of brilliant in the way she stretches her limited gifts to make things happen, business-wise.

    She designed a line of overpriced, unfashionable handbags--but she started the company on her own, got the bags in the hands of celebrities, and saw profits.

    She co-founded a terrible website as a centerpiece for a probable Bravo reality show--but she was (the only one) smart enough to cut her losses and leave when the venture proved unwise.

    She launched another mediocre blog--but it has a clear goal, daily themes, better design than NS, and Kodak sponsors her.

    She publishes inane product reviews--but they apparently sell merchandise, and she appears to have been NS's liaison between all PR reps and potential advertisers.

    She was homeless--but still fabulous!

    So, while I do think Mary only stuck around because of the Bravo "deal," I don't think she is one of those reality show people. She's got a vision, people.

  12. Meaghan would do much better if she only would pretend that her face had lost the ability to make expressions. The Jim Carrey comment is right on. In fact, this was one of the reasons I stopped watching the TMI shows quite a while back - she drives me crazy.

  13. God Julia looks like such a Walrus

  14. I still have never watched one of these for the entire episode. I usually cut out after two minutes.

  15. Made it through 2 mins., 15 secs. of TMI, a record for me and just long enough to catch Julia's 50-year-old-Wilmette-divorcee getup. As for the Adrien character, nice that the ladies are so devoted to keeping those gay stereotypes intact. Julia especially enjoys when minorities know their place--unless they have wads of cash and/or connections--as those of us from Georgetown remember all too well. Maybe the four can mount a revival of The Boys in the Band for Wilmette Community Theatre.

  16. Excuse my ignorance, but if that thing is called TMI Weekly, why do i see a new episode like almost every other day?

  18. Is it just me. or does Julia's neck look really weird? I don't know if it's the way she's facing or what, but her neck looks like it has extra skin or something on it... she's got a fat neck.

  19. Seriously, the more you pay attention to Meghan, the more you just have to wonder if she's really all there. Recent post: she reblogs Mary learning how to use iMovie with the caption "This excites me!" Can that be the new VERY NICE! ?

  20. I think Meaghan is simply trying to "look" interested in what's going on because Julia must have said something to her about her looking almost comatose in previous episodes. I think she's pulling weird faces just to shut her up. What's Julia going to say now? Don't look so weird? I almost feel bad for that girl having to do dumb shit like this, but then I remember that she is an adult and can walk away pretty much whenever she wants to and chooses not to because she has no spine.

  21. Julia braying "ESPADRILLES!" and the ensuing silence just made my day.

  22. As I was watching I noticed that all the ads were for Tourette's syndrome...

  24. Mary turns out to be the only one of them that actually has talent.

    Julia looks bored when she's not talking. And Meghan looks like a dimwit ham.

    Leaving NonSociety was such a good move for Mary.

  25. Mary says black is in for summer. Julia replies with "I hate black" and Mary says "it hates you too". How much more obvious can this relationship get? Yay pocket gay! I like him with Mary.
