Julia Allison Didn't Watch the Oscars, Has Opinions

Julia Allison, of the emasculating Allisons, didn’t watch the Oscars because she can’t afford cable. Which is weird, since the Oscars weren’t on cable, but whatever.

I would watch the Oscars, but I don’t have a television with cable. I guess I’m stuck with replays on … Hulu? Will they have those??

She did watch clips online. And cried. Yes, cried.

*sigh

I cried (of course I cried). Now THAT is an acceptance speech. (Sandra Bullock’s moving Best Actress award: http://tinyurl.com/y856k8j)

God, quit being such a GIRL!

And of course, she had opinions about the clothes, like Jordan. And just like Jordan, her opinion sucked. I mean, come on. She liked this:

All the fashion critics hated this.

I, of course, loved it.  (Except maybe the bodice.  But the bottom bit is so freaking awesome I forgive the top.)  It’s creative and whimsical and colorful and – more than anything – FUN!  Which is really what dressing up should be, don’t you think?

BRING ON THE PURPLE POOFS, GIRL!

OK, you stupid  bitch — may I call you “stupid bitch,” Julia — you are off your nutter. That dress is horrendous, and if I were to give it a compliment, I would say the only redeeming thing about the dress is the top, not the bottom, which. . . gah! It looks like Prince’s shower poof collection. And I love “Controversy” as much as the next person — actually, I love it a lot — but Jesus Christ!

Somewhere in Houston, Mary is having her morning Kale juice and Ketel One and laughing her ass off because she is the better person here. And Mary fucking sucks.

  1. Kale Juice and Ketel One says:

    Hi, it’s Normal Healthy Julia with a temporary user name in tribute to that amazing line. Speaking of which, did any of you catch Mary’s post the other day in which she literally whined that her blog is making her “very little rent money” and demanded that readers read the awful new articles by the illiterate new contributors. She pointed out that readers “don’t have to pay up,” so “all she asks” is that they spend more time on the site.

    I haven’t been on much the last few days so maybe I missed discussion of this. Sorry…

    • shamoolia says:

      WOW. Was Mary hammered out of her gourd when she wrote that? Yay! Bitchy, incoherent, idiotic Mary is BACK, baby!

      “If you were standing next to that dress, you’d fall to your knees before you got passed the bust. And THEN, you would admire her for being a fashionista that commands the carpet. ”

      “why do they feel the need to have a slip up the front of their dress that gestures (that is the best word I can think of) to their yaya.”

      “Mariah always looks like a slut, I get that one. But the other dresses are stunning without the arrow upward.”

      “The pictures don’t hold a candle to the real deal, up-close and in the sequins. ”

      WHAT. THE. FUCK?

    • in donkey-jaw diction says:

      I feel like Mary doesn’t understand fashion that well, like she is just stuck on being thin and wearing boxy shapes.

      She made fun of Carey Mulligan’s dress? IT HAS FORKS ON IT. IT’S PRADA, i.e. genius.

      • I know it has cutlery, and it’s cute, and I LOVE her pixie haircut. The shoes are a little wrong for that gown, but I actually don’t mind the hemline.

        (I swear to god, I’m not this gay.)

      • shamoolia says:

        THIS! She takes a quick glance at it and writes it off as “80s prom” without appreciating the subtle artistry of it. She’s such a hick! And what the hell was that bit about how Carey should dye her hair brown?

        “AND you shouldn’t shop by label. The Prada tag is deceiving here; that’s an 80’s prom dress love.”

        That’s awfully rich coming from someone who used to wear a heinous consignment store Chanel scarf as a fucking TOP just because it was covered in logos. Tacky cow.

      • Ineffable says:

        I’ve always thought she only likes or appreciates things she thinks would look good on herself.

      • Julia's Too Small Tutu says:

        Mary has some nerve complaining about how little money she makes from her site, f she wrote like that for any halfway decent publication or site, she would be fired on the spot.

        Also, Mary, Carey’s dress rocked….hard.

    • Ineffable Slut Clog says:

      Russian Girl did you hack your way into MTM and post this? Because surely no one who speaks English as a first language AND went to college could possibly write this way.

      “Case and point”! She’s just fucking with us, right? Whoa is me!

    • Snorting Caviar in Aspen says:

      “My final Oscars note has to do with “sexy” silts.

      All of the women you see above are clearly beautiful, talented, [insert your adjective here], so why do they feel the need to have a slip up the front of their dress that gestures (that is the best word I can think of) to their ya”

      SLIT is the word you want!

      SLIT, as in: ‘If you’re going to blog for a living, you may as well go SLIT your connection to the internet right now, or prepare to live out of your car.’

    • Dr. Gary says:

      “Carey Mulligan, the young beauty from The Education”

      AN Education, not THE.

      “…before you got passed the bust”

      PAST, not PASSED.

      “…you would admire her for being a fashionista that commands the carpet”

      WHO commands, not THAT.

      “I didn’t crop his girlfriend (whose name I don’t know)”

      It’s Elisabetta Canalis. I already knew her name, but I took the extra what? 3 seconds? To google it and make sure I got the correct spelling.

      And on and on with the typos, grammar errors, etc. Are you really that dumb? Or is your sense of entitlement so great that you can’t be bothered to spell words correctly, or find the ‘right’ word.

      You’re kind of an internet joke. Queen of the Malapropism (look it up), if you will. You want to know why people don’t spend a lot of time on your site/cite/sight? Or you’re not getting the page views you’d hoped for? Well, this is a good place to start. I rarely visit MTM. But when I do? I want to grab a red pen and go to town. Seriously, it’s embarrassing.

      • I guaran-fucking-tee you that Mary did not see An Education.

      • "Pilot" is the new "keynote" says:

        This laziness is what makes it even more audacious for her to DEMAND that people read her shitty site even if it’s poorly organized and not good enough to spend time on. LAZY FUCKING BONES. And she’s supposed to be the hard worker of this bunch of boneheads!

      • pescachickenarian says:

        She didn’t get an education either, apparently.

    • this mary thread is KILLING ME! Oh.My.God! there is WAY TOO MUCH to parse. i was still laughing at yesterday’s “whoa is me” ((c) joey lawrence), and now these gems fall from the heavens! THANK YOU MARY! i will be sure to spend 2 minutes and 1 second on your site to show my gratitude.

  2. Cheesy Synthetic dresses go with Cheesy Synthetic hair says:

    you hit the nail on the head regarding MTM’s future…..
    blonde botoxed butt-juice-drinking alkie with the sadz. It’s looking
    quite tragic. Where’s HER Mr. Texas Schlub??

    • shamoolia says:

      Does Mary live with her mother in Houston? Did her leased Audi get repossessed? Does anyone else think she’s going to be Sylvia from Intervention in ten years?

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rGFdw5ax-i0

      • Cheesy Synthetic dresses go with Cheesy Synthetic hair says:

        Poor pitiful Mare. I actually clicked over to her blerg and watched her boring video about getting her face shot-up with chemicals. Boring but fascinating that she justifies the shit as an UNDER 30…my gawd, she’s headed for big time face-wipe-out in a few years. Can you imagine the many-many cuts and contortions that are lurking in her near future? ouch, it ain’t gonna be pretty….

        Isn’t it about time for Mare to go to Mexico again? Spring BreakTime!

  3. shamoolia says:

    Julia thinks her “controversial sartorial choices” make her kooky, unique and special but they just make her look like a tasteless, classless, idiot. Especially when the illiterate donkey writes shit like this: “It has lots of fabric and glittery things on top and a bow type thing, so that makes me happy enough.”

    ME LIKEY SPARKLY DRESS. ME WANT SPARKLY DRESS. WHY AM I NOT PRETTY ENOUGH FOR SPARKLY THINGS, DADDY?

  4. Good Thoughts says:

    “BRING ON THE PURPLE POOFS, GIRL!”

    Did Donkey just automatically lapse into street vernacular here because the actress is Latina? I never really gave credence to comments here about her racist tendencies, but this makes me wonder. Or maybe I am just finding her so despicable lately that I am deriving the worst possible connotations from everything she says and does.

  5. Dadser Plays Possum says:

    “Somewhere in Houston, Mary is having her morning Kale juice and Ketel One and laughing her ass off because she is the better person here. And Mary fucking sucks.”

    This x 10000! Julia makes me like Mary AND I HATE MARY! Therefore, I hate Julia.

  6. LeaveMyCollegeAlone says:

    Totally unrelated but bugging me nonetheless: Julia asking people to take pictures of her at events she “covers.” If she were a real reporter she would know that SHE isn’t the subject. I interview famous athletes every day for my job and it’s never dawned on me to ask someone to take a picture of me doing it. It’s completely unprofessional and amateur and embarrassing. She truly has no dignity or self-respect.

    • One of my favorite moments was Julia at the Gracies. She was apparently covering (?) the event? And then walked the red carpet like was invited to attend.

      • shamoolia says:

        And don’t forget Julia at the Met! She’s the only person “covering” (aka crashing the red carpet) these little events that shows up in full gown, hair and makeup. I believe someone that was there came here and commented and said she tried to get in to see the opera but only made it as far as the lobby. She took a picture of herself in a seat as the theatre emptied out to make it seem like she was there. HAR.

      • LeaveMyCollegeAlone says:

        Yeah. Because if I were going to get a picture interviewing a famous person (or thrusting my tits into the right side of a famous person) that would mean that I’d have to ask another reporter to snap it. Which would be beyond humiliating. I’d basically be broadcasting the fact that I’m a joke.

        When she thinks “journalist” she thinks Barbara Walters or Oprah. But they’re not journalist: they are television personalities and their shows are about them, not the people they interview. This is what she wants. She wants to BE the story, not write about someone else. This is why she shows no interest in pop culture and she’s never written an interesting assessment of anything. She simply has no desire to look outside herself.

        A lot of people with this same mentality (Paris Hilton, etc.) have become wildly famous. Trouble is Julia’s the most boring person on the Internet, and the only thing she has going for her (now that she’s ruined her looks with cupcake and juice colonics) is a mental disorder. So if she becomes nationally famous now it will only be because people are pointing and laughing.

  7. Snorting Caviar in Aspen says:

    “(As a side note, I’m noticing that not a SINGLE star in my lineup wore a necklace. Hmmm. What does this mean?? I thought statement jewelry was IN. Is it out now?? Katrina! Tell me what this is all about!)”

    Yes, listen to Katrina, why don’t you? She’ll quit giggling soon enough, & she’ll tell ya that no one (w/ any taste) thinks clunky crap w/a clasp is in, much less do they
    wear it for two weeks straight.

    • I laughed and laughed when I read that. Julia thinks costume jewlery is in because she can’t go one day without wearing a FUCKING COSTUME.

      Gah! The ragies!

      • shamoolia says:

        She’s also too stupid to realize that stars are loaned THE REAL THING and don’t wear cheesy costume jewelry – they wear REAL jewels which are quite a bit more subtle.

        Gawd, she’s such a hick. It’s like wondering why none of them wore an ABS dress from Bloomingdale’s.

      • bitchface says:

        but…. i’m waiting for a knock-off of kate winselt’s necklace (platinum w/ yellow diamonds. I’ll be fine with silver plated & daffodil cubic zirc !)

    • Ineffable Slut Clog says:

      Why yes Julia, draping yourself in enough rhinestones to drive Claire’s out of business, does in fact make you look more “fresh off the bus from Wichita” and less “A-list movie star.”

    • FaFailWaldorf says:

      Jesus. No one in your lineup was wearing a statement jewelry because you picked all the bedazzled dresses and people with actual taste know how much is too much.

      Sparkle Princess is NOT an actual revered look, idiot.

    • Julia's Fat Ass says:

      They never wear necklaces. She’s a fucking idiot.

  8. reformed says:

    We should seriously take bets on Jordans departure. How the hell would you feel after being forced into a week long vacation and then stranded at the airport for two days and then had to suffer through 30 hours of travel to get back to your home? Jeeeesus.

    • Eyebrows of Fury says:

      Nah, don’t worry about it. Julia will buy her some tulips and then blog about it.
      Problem solved!

    • "Pilot" is the new "keynote" says:

      I want to believe that her use of garlic powder in that gross-sounding stir-fry was a shout out to RBNS.

    • MutinyOnTheBounty says:

    • Kale Juice and Ketel One says:

      Yeah I wonder how Kedrick held up being with Jules around the clock for days.

    • shamoolia says:

      Oh please. Jordan’s not going anywhere. What else does she have going on besides staying home all day and trying on lip glosses and making icky stir fries with garlic salt?

  9. Mini Driver says:

    It’s REALLY starting to bug me that someone who wears her hair in a pouf, wears pouf skirts, and comments on the poufs of others CAN’T SPELL POUF.

    poof |poōf; poŏf|
    exclamation

    1 used to convey the suddenness with which someone or something disappears : once you’ve used it, poof—it’s gone.

    2 used to express contemptuous dismissal : “Oh, poof!” said Will. “You say that every year.”

    poof 2 |puf| |pʊf| |puːf| (also pouf or poove)
    noun Brit., informal offensive

    an effeminate or homosexual man.

    pouf |puf|
    noun

    a dress or part of a dress in which a large mass of material has been gathered so that it stands away from the body : [as adj. ] a dress with a pouf skirt.

    • a bouffant hairstyle : he grew his hair out in a sort of pouf.

    • Fauxga Party! says:

      Julia’s ass covering: pouf. Julia’s viability: poof!

    • Good Thoughts says:

      It might be Russian Girl’s fault for confusing her by nicknaming her Poofy.

      • Mini Driver says:

        Actually, the notion that Julia takes grammar tips from Russian Girl explains a whole hell of a lot.

    • I thought it was “puff.” Regardless, that is one of my favorite terms to describe a buttfucker.

      • "Pilot" is the new "keynote" says:

        “Poof” sounds like “puff” when Brits say it. “Poofter” is a funnier variation.

    It’s like a kindergartner pointing out colors. (THIS one is blue, THIS one is red!) Someone give the child a pat on the head and a gold sticker.

    • shamoolia says:

      Exactly. I mean, she said THIS for fucks sake: “It has lots of fabric and glittery things on top and a bow type thing, so that makes me happy enough.”

    • Jacy says:

      It’s the suggestion to that she’s some sort of authority. Yes, Donk, if you say THIS is the way to dress for the Oscars, I’m sure all the stars will sit up and take notice. IDIOT.

    “OK, you stupid bitch — may I call you stupid bitch? — …”

    Oh how hard I just laughed.

    • shamoolia says:

    • bitchface says:

      lol.. i know right…. but come on, she doesn’t actually EAT it.

    • shamoolia says:

      Oh my god those carrots are offensive! Does this chick EVER look at other food/domestic blogs? Pioneer Woman? The Kitchn? Smitten Kitchen? Anything?

      I can’t get over how Jordan is so incredibly amateurish, yet pleased with herself. It’s fucking embarrassing.

      • reformed says:

        I guess I wasn’t paying much attention to what it was for. However, I don’t think we have seen many ensembles that resemble what a 29 year old woman should be wearing any better than that one.

    “I’m not sure what it says about me, but I’ve been having problems with the relatives of guys I date since I was 16 years old.”

    “My first love’s parents banned me from their house. My college boyfriend’s sister and I actually had a fistfight.”

    The weirdest part of this piece is that it ends with ” And if nothing else works, remind your [emphasis mine] parents that it could be much, much worse. At least you haven’t married Kevin Federline. Yet.”

    Wait, are we talking about you meeting his parents or him meeting your parents? So confused.

    There was another article of hers where she talked about getting drunk while meeting her date’s parents and discussion various sexual positions. Back momentarily.

        wait, i thought Julia was kinda Jewish too? do you think Dadsers converted?

      • Mini Driver says:

        YES! Thank you! It was in Cosmopolitan, not her AM New York clips, which is where I was looking. Her entire article archive was recycled during TMI Weakly’s run, up to and including Crying During Sex.

    • well, why the fuck am i not surprised?! julia even plagiarized from herself! see the similarities here?

      In lieu of a full-out “Like Me!” ad campaign, I’ve found that the easiest way to ingratiate my partner’s family to me is by not screwing it up in the first place. Since bad initial impressions are like toxic waste – infinitely easier to make than to remove – I now begin with a calmer, gentler, less controversial version of myself.

      I painstakingly go over everything I should absolutely not mention in their presence, like my strident feminism or that new tantric sex position I’m dying to try. I also watch the alcohol consumption. One too many glasses of Pinot Noir (or, c’mon, shots of tequila) can turn the most well-intentioned first meeting into a cringe-worthy series of humiliating gaffes.

      And if nothing else works, I remind my boyfriend’s parents that it could be much, much worse.

      It may be too late for her, but it isn’t necessarily for you. Of course, the easiest way to ingratiate your partner’s family to you, (or to warm up your parents to your new partner) is by not screwing it up in the first place.

      Bad first impressions are extremely difficult to get over, so start off with a calmer, gentler, less, ah, controversial version of yourself. Preparation makes all the difference – go over everything you should absolutely not mention in their presence, from Ann Coulter to your fervent hatred for creationism, uh, intelligent design.

      And whatever you do, watch the alcohol consumption. One too many glasses of Pinot Noir can turn the most well-intentioned first meeting into a memorable series of humiliating gaffes.

      And if nothing else works, remind your parents that it could be much, much worse. At least you haven’t married Kevin Federline. Yet.

        jesus christ! Cosmo accepted then ultimately didn’t publish an article I wrote and they published THIS? This writing is trash.

      • bitchface says:

        why does she talk about Jewish people as if – bracketing them with an idiotmatic emphasis – everyone will understand what she means so she doesn’t have to say it.

        Prom King, I know lotsa nice, sexy jewish girls who are 5billion times less neurotic than her.

      • Princess WideStance says:

        “Strident feminism.” Hahahahaha.

        There are many things about Julia which are strident. Her “beliefs” don’t make the cut.

      • Dyspeptic2 says:

        I don’t know which is more pathetic: that Princess Peltalots can’t use “ingratiate” correctly, or that her editors can’t. You don’t ingratiate the parents to YOU, donks: you ingratiate yourself to THEM. Just remember: you’re the one doing the sucking up.

      • No Money Peltskank says:

        I read this as her usual crappy writing, aimed to condescendingly let the idiot reader know that parents born in Israel come “with a Jew, of course” – just in a messy order because she can’t structure anything for fuck.
        The “breed half-Jews” did it for me, sounds like musings on the One-Drop-Rule can’t be far behind. Overreacting? Maybe. But I find her mere existence so offensive that I don’t really care right now if I am doing her grave injustice.

      • Pearl Clutcher says:

        Even that phrase isn’t original – there’s a line in Bridget Jones’s Diary about how “nothing is more unattractive to a man than strident feminism.”

  21. ok, can’t believe i’m writing this, but i have to give jordan some geek cred: she used “all your base are belong to us” in a photo caption. can construction of a lego millennium falcon be far behind? we await your diy video, jordan.

    • Princess WideStance says:

      She probably just heard someone else say it. I mean, the woman considers ehow.com to be the preeminent virtual marketplace of ideas.

    • "Pilot" is the new "keynote" says:

      Eh. That phrase was pretty ubiquitous a few years ago. She gets only shark jumping cred.
