The Muppet Show at SXSW

Consider this: Instead of rambling to a sparsely populated conference hall like last year, this year Donk piggybacked on someone else’s talk in a sparsely populated hotel room.

Progress?

And at the same time she was riding the coattails of some rando “social media consultant,” the most visible exec at “her” network — Bravo’s Andy Cohen — was at a panel on the fusion of social media and TV. It was an event she was pointedly NOT invited to participate in or to attend, insiders say.

Hmmmm.

  2. Not Random says:

    Whoever said she looks like a bloated corpse was spot-on.

    • Peltergeist says:

      What happened to her face?! I know, I know, fillers, no sleep, etc. etc. etc. but is it even possible to suddenly bloat up in your face like that? Is she having an allergic reaction to being around employed people? This looks so… impossible. I have never seen anyone’s entire face swell up and I’m more than a little freaked out.

      • Dog Yapping & Donkey Tears says:

        I know. I LITERALLY gasped when I saw this pic. It makes me angry (unreasonably, yes) at her parents or anyone who is allegedly her friend, for not getting in her face about this.

        I cannot believe someone so vain keeps doing this to their face.

      • Not Random says:

        I would suggest coke bloat, but I don’t think she can afford class-A drugs.

      • Albie Quirky says:

        I sincerely hope that she is not ill, and that it’s just her standard no sleep/laxative abuse/scheme juice fermentation combo.

    • Peltergeist says:

      I mean, that is the face of a 300 lb woman and she is clearly not overweight. IT’S SO UNNATURAL.

  3. Whoa says:

    Like like like like like like like like

  4. Dog Yapping & Donkey Tears says:

    I love that she was talking about Jack McCain and how being a digital nomad worked for her relationship – yes, it kept him from figuring out you were crazy later rather than sooner. But wasn’t this supposed to be talking about your career rather than your boyfriend?

  5. Dr. Gary says:

    Oh, sweet irony.

  6. juliaspublicist cried his rhinestone off juliaspublicist says:

    It’s like I was there. (I wasn’t.)

  8. Little girl pedaling alone in the rain with her own wet cake says:

    This is just too sad. I can’t stand to even look at her.

    Then I remember she’s one of the meanest, nastiest most vindictive cunts ever and that she deserves all of this. HI JULIA!

  9. Miss Despised says:

    She keeps adding volume in her face. Maybe she’s hoping it will balance out the volume of her braying? If you fill in every wrinkle, freeze every expression line, and throw in cheek implants, and lip injections you lose all character. This is what happens when you fill up everything until your face is just a squishy round ball of fake. Not unlike her heart.

    • Jacy "Donk" LaRue Jacy "Donk" LaRue says:

      I feel like she needs to immerse her face in a tub of icewater to reduce the swelling. It’s like she’s got the fucking mumps or she’s having an allergic reaction to something. What? The? Fuck??

      • Not Random says:

        Did she get stung by a thousand bees?

      • JFA says:

        It doesn’t explain all the fucked upness, but she looks exhausted. Take care of your mood disorder and get some sleep for the love of fuck.

        • Jacy "Donk" LaRue Jacy "Donk" LaRue says:

          Exactly. How many years have we been advising this? GET MEDICATION, DONKEY! SLEEPING PILLS, MOOD STABILISERS, SOMETHING, ANYTHING!

          It will never cease to astound me that she thinks injecting shit into her face is less harmful than dealing with the chemical imbalances in her brain.

  10. shen says:

    OMG. I was there and tried to snap a photo but NOTHING I captured quite encapsulates it as much as this. She hijacked this woman’s panel and THANKED her for sharing her story (despite the fact SHE organized it). She conveniently left out living in Chicago semi -permanently and then crinkled her nose when someone mentioned Path (one of her supposedly OMG best friend’s companies). I.just.can’t. The face, the gestures, the talk track. FACE PLANT in front of a non crowded room of 35 people at the Courtyard Marriott.

    • Dog Yapping & Donkey Tears says:

      MORE PLEASE!!!!!!!

      • Donkey of Perdition says:

        Please say someone took a video this year. [img]http://s3-ak.buzzfed.com/static/imagebuzz/web04/2009/9/6/23/disappointed-cat-is-disappoint-23393-1252295716-93.jpg[/img]

    • Princess WideStance says:

      She thanked someone for speaking at their own panel? God, that is beautiful.

      • Jacy "Donk" LaRue Jacy "Donk" LaRue says:

        Typical. She barged in, stole someone’s tiara, and then thanked her for her trouble. ASSHOLE.

        • Jacy "Donk" LaRue Jacy "Donk" LaRue says:

          See also: “licked someone’s cake.” Right? This is the equivalent of barging into Randi’s birthday party, making like it’s hers, and licking her cake to mark her territory.

      • Dyspeptic says:

        It is so perfect, the “thanking” Erico O’Grady for sharing her own story which was the premise of the whole fucking Courtyard Marriott “panel” or whatever the hell they called it.

    • a JA moment says:

      Did she mention Pancakes by name?

      That face is just horrific!

      • erg says:

        no, she didn’t mention his name, just “my ex was in the military”

        • MUMPS?? STUNG BY A THOUSAND BEES?? WHAT HAPPENED TO HER FUCKING FACE?? says:

          It’s like when she did that local Chicago news interview when she skulked back home to live in her parents’ place, and was talking about people using social media in dating, just WAITING for the anchor to ask her who she was dating. She’s DYING to be “forced” to utter his name.

        • Dyspeptic says:

          well, thank god, she showed some discretion for once in her life. glory be.

  11. BunnyBingo says:

    “At age 50, every man has the face he deserves. ” – George Orwell.

  12. MUMPS?? STUNG BY A THOUSAND BEES?? WHAT HAPPENED TO HER FUCKING FACE?? says:

    But seriously. She HAS to know how fucking hideous she looks. The picture on http://juliaallison.com looks NOTHING LIKE THIS FREAK.

    • SchiapWTF says:

      Here’s another one. Her outfit is cute.
      http://instagr.am/p/IAAT3bk9L7/

      • The Tortuous and the Hair says:

        [img]http://i.imgur.com/xnDQz.jpg[/img]

        Agreed. If you can get past the bloated face, her outfit looks cute and appropriate for once.

        • Jacy "Donk" LaRue Jacy "Donk" LaRue says:

          Oh dear. O’Grady appears not to be “tiny and cute.” How humiliating for a donkey.

          • Albie Quirky says:

            I am shocked that she seems to be a grown lady significantly A Donkey’s senior. I had assumed she was young and foolish in her Donkey fandom. Now I see that it was either A Donkey or those horrifying “reborn baby” dolls or rescue squirrels.

          • MUMPS?? STUNG BY A THOUSAND BEES?? WHAT HAPPENED TO HER FUCKING FACE?? says:

            Erica is “nice but dim”. She has a habit of getting into online flirtations with men and then tweeting every thought she has about them, every snippet of every text convo they have, quotes from “The Notebook,” etc. I almost feel sorry for her. No filters, and not in a good way.

        • MUMPS?? STUNG BY A THOUSAND BEES?? WHAT HAPPENED TO HER FUCKING FACE?? says:

          Click on the full version of that pic. HER FUCKING FACE!!! OMG.

  13. Dog Yapping & Donkey Tears says:

    JuliaAllison “If you’re funny enough or smart enough, you will succeed on the Internet.” -@McCainBlogette during @shiralazar’s show at #SXSW
    18 minutes ago

    I guess this explains Julia’s success! Walked right into that one, Donkey!

    • JFA says:

      Oh Jesus Christ these three. Shut up Tits McCain…no one thinks you are remotely funny or smart. I CANNOT. Three useless twits right there.

    • Tremendous Liar; Donkey Repugnant says:

      Sometimes it’s easiest to notice and value qualities you don’t yourself possess. Making it Internet big usually takes humor and/or smarts and/or expertise AND (not or) a lot of flair for aggressive self-promotion. Julia and Meghan McCain have plenty of the last quality and none of the first three. And Meghan didn’t mention expertise because she’s an anti-intellectual cunt.

  14. Shen says:

    Didnt mention him by name but pointed out he was in the military and that it just worked bc they both didn’t have a home. And her new wingman Julia was of course in the front row.

    • Jacy "Donk" LaRue Jacy "Donk" LaRue says:

      Oh yes, it worked so well! Because there was so much trust! So much trust that she’d barely spent any time under the same roof with the dude before she was hacking into his phone and email.

      She is such a mammoth fraud on every fucking front. Karmaface indeed.

    • Julie Booger's Crown is Upside Down says:

      This woman is in her 30s and counts what… 5 months of screwing some infant long distance as a relationship that “worked”? Julie, that is pathetic.

  15. Keep sxsw donk free says:

    Was half the audience catladies? Seems so.

    The pic was my view but I didn’t take it, I swears.

    Her roomie was there. Totes skinny.

    The chairs all faced the center of the room to facilitate discussion but Julia made everyone sit in front of her “to promote conversation” but really she did 75% of the talking as if leading a panel.

    She’d go off on tangents about herself and the (sincere, naive) attendees would ask her questions that she couldn’t answer and she’d keep digressing. There were some real “digital nomads” (wtf?) there and they were more informed and interesting.

    Erica O’Grady seemed very sweet.

    A few points:

    – she said fuck and shit a lot
    – she’s really loud and everything was about her
    – her hands really are something
    – definitely has fillers in the face
    – said she went to burning man instead of Paris because it “felt right” (no mention of being sick.)
    – said she’s not a trustfunder (nobody asked)
    – brings up Tim Ferriss’s book as a good one and one of the “real” nomad people shut that down
    – mentioned her “military boyfriend” and how they worked well because neither had homes. (She forgot about the home they shared I guess.)

    There is more but my takeaway was that she’s is mentally ill.

    • Dog Yapping & Donkey Tears says:

      “- said she went to burning man instead of Paris because it “felt right” (no mention of being sick.)”

      HYSTERICAL!

    • Dr. Gary says:

      Thanks for the intel.

      ‘she said fuck and shit a lot’

      Her sailor mouth always surprises me. Does she think it makes her seem more ‘cool’ to cuss like that?

      Would love details re: the questions ‘she couldn’t answer’.

    • Donksers says:

      Her excessive use of “fuck” and “shit” while talking to a group of people reminded me of a video that I saw a long time ago…maybe on RBNS? She was in the audience of some kind of discussion panel and wouldn’t shut up with her comments, so the woman who was leading the panel asked if she’d like to come up and join them. She did, and WHAMO…she took over the whole thing. Everyone else on the panel might as well have left because from that moment on, it was the Julia Allison show, and I’ve never heard so much “fucken this, fucken that, fucken, fucken, fuck, fuck, shit, shit, shit” in my entire life. She was trying so embarrassingly hard to be edgy and had absolutely no clue how big of an ass she was making of herself in front of all those people.

        • Donksers says:

          You are good! Thanks, Professor.

        • Dr. Gary says:

          Damn IT.

          I have to say, Heather Gold is an asshole, narcissist, and idiot of the highest order. So fuck her, too.

      • Dr. Gary says:

        Yes! That was at SXSW, 2008. Back when she thought she was really hot shit. It Heather Gold’s ‘Gossip Panel’. Can’t find the video, but there’s this:

        http://tinyurl.com/842kcw4

        • Donksers says:

          I LOVE it when she thinks she’s hot shit because that’s when she’s her most self-absorbed, heinous, unbearable, crazy self and provides the best material for RBD!

        • a JA moment says:

          Love this snippet of the article:

          Gawker’s Nick Douglas followed shortly thereafter to comment in Allison’s defense: “Julia really has tried a lot,” he said, referencing her tendency to explain all the fraught incidents and interactions she’s chronicled in her blogs. “What she hasn’t tried is not talking about herself,” to which Allison hollered an interruption. Of the lone guy defending her. “I fucking stopped! I don’t have a Twitter. I DO NOT have a Twitter!”

        • mcakez: Taste the Passion! of Relationship Tofu! says:

          That whole incident was disgusting. I think she abuses the fact that most people have more tact than to tell her what an inconsiderate bore she is to her face.

          Also, I read the linked article for the Sarah Lacy interview, and she sounds like a bit of a monster, too. I’ve never paid much attention to her, but cripes what a twatruffle.

    • Peltergeist says:

      Anyone who goes to Burning Man instead of Paris is just an idiot. Sorry.

    • juliaspublicist cried his rhinestone off juliaspublicist says:

      Speaking of Ferris, there is a panel called “The 4-hour Work Week is BS.”

    • erg says:

      i also loved how she recommended going to an ashram after someone brought up eat pray love. i think she said something along the lines of “i wish i had gone all out and gone to an ashram in india instead of upstate new york. which, by the way, if you haven’t been, go to an ashram”

  16. Prof. F Camping Prof. F Camping says:

    #MMBH update:
    Have been invited to @gawker “smallest party @ #sxsw” – dare I walk into the devil’s layer [sic] tomorrow night? Pls advise

    also, she’s tweeting at Rick Perry about how awesome he is and that she’s proud to have him as governor.

    • Dog Yapping & Donkey Tears says:

      The devil’s layer – sweet Jesus.

    • Donksers says:

      The devil’s layer….ha! I know there’s a lot of love for MMBH these days on RBD, but geeze….she is so stupid. It never stops, it doesn’t even let up!

      • Albie Quirky says:

        Her innovative manglings of English never cease to delight.

        Pride in Rick Perry, not so much.

      • JFA says:

        She really is a dumb fuck. Also guaranteed no one will pay attention to her. Get the hell over yourself sweets.

        • Kissy Face to a Crowd of Crickets says:

          Yup. Gawker doesn’t give a fuck about Beach Hair, and they probably don’t know who she is. Most of the writers from that era are long gone.

    • AFGHANI says:

      How embarassing that she’s proud of Rick Perry. What could be worse, being proud of Sarah Palin as your governor? There really isn’t much, even GW Bush wasn’t as big of a retarded shithead as Rick Perry.

      One enduring lesson from Julia, MMBH, and Meg O Lantern? Money can’t buy class. Or a functioning brain.

      • helobabe says:

        Two words: Chris Christie.

        • AFGHANI says:

          Eh, he was a very good prosecutor at the fed level and isn’t a vacuous waste of space like Perry. He’s wrong on the gay marriage issue, but that seems like posturing for a VP nomination to me. To me he’s a lot less worrisome than someone like Perry or Palin… or Santorum for that matter.

      No. No. Please not re: Rick Perry. Mary, come on!! You’re a Bible-thumping evangelical Christian now? You’re a rabid pro-lifer? You’re opposed to same-sex marriage even though some of your closest friends are GAY???!??!?!?!? Of course you’re not, you aren’t, you don’t! Vote in your interests, Mary, not because of how your parents have always voted!!

      Sorry, I just cannot believe any woman of our generation is any of the above unless she’s a fucking freak and/or actually 55.

        I don’t get it and agree with you

        • Jacy "Donk" LaRue Jacy "Donk" LaRue says:

          She has so many gay friends! Imagine how that makes them feel!

          p.s. Not trying to start anything between you and Mary. I like her, and she looks great in orange! But this strikes me as really naive and ill-considered. She thinks she likes him — hell, I found myself feeling affection for him during that one debate when he was so proud that he remembered the three agencies — but she has to remember what he stands for!

          • CDB says:

            yea I have a problem with it.

          • How Brayella Got Her Hoove Black says:

            I don’t know ANYone in Texas who doesn’t have a problem w/ pRick Perry, & yet the mofo got re-elected. Sorry, MMBH, but you’ve just magnified your lack of intellect X 10,000.

          • Jacy "Donk" LaRue Jacy "Donk" LaRue says:

            That is so true. I know this lovely Republican couple in Dallas — dyed-in-the-wool, lifelong Republicans who ADORE W. to this day — who fucking hate Rick Perry. Like would seriously vote against the party to get him out of there.

            Then again, the Bushes hate him too.

            For some odd reason, there’s been a major outbreak of Mary-love on RBD lately. I think she’s an idiot.

          • AFGHANI says:

            I don’t think anyone’s denying that she’s dumb. They just like that she’s doing better since never-ing the Donkey. And that, even during the TMI days, she told Donk off a few times.

      • donk's knees says:

        This “Bible-Thumping Fucking Freak” still loves you Jacy, despite your stated view. Will just leave it at that.

        • AFGHANI says:

          It would be great if all these douchebag bible thumpers acted more like Jesus and less like the Pharises/Farisees/Farahseize (oh hey, MMBH). Maybe care about equality and access to medical care for people alive now, instead of restricting access to contraception and dictating what people can do with their own bodies.

        • Jacy "Donk" LaRue Jacy "Donk" LaRue says:

          I didn’t say “freak,” I said evangelical Christian. Are you one? If so, you are going to hell for reading this blog.

          I know tons of moderate Republicans and love them. They are among some of my closest pals. But the evangelical Christian faction that has taken over the base thanks to Karl Rove? They are not Republicans.

          The best thing that could happen to the party is that Obama crushes them in November, the party is forced to deal with the base and someone like Rick Santorum leaves to start up his own evangelical party. That would allow the GOP to return to its former self — as Jon Huntsman said, a “compassionately conservative” party of big vision and big ideas.

          Otherwise, the GOP is dead. Hispanics will never vote Republican as the party exists now. And Hispanics now out-number African-Americans; it’s the most rapidly growing voting bloc in the country. Unfortunately, the evangelical wing of the party thinks Hispanics are thieving devils.

          Good luck with that.

          p.s. I love you too.

          p.p.s. Onto the Donkey!

            Unfortunately, I know of many Catholic Hispanics who still hold to the Republican party line. The abortion/birth control/religious freedom issue is having exactly the intended effect of distracting the devout from the real ways they’re being screwed.

            Right! It also shows how much a woman in politics has to deal with both the “hard” politics of facts and subjective ideas of her own sexuality. i.e. you must be both smart and pretty, no lipstick on a pig.

            Best line of the night: “When you’ve lost the moral high ground to Dick Cheney, it’s time to rethink your entire life. How does he eat wearing Darth Vader’s helmet, anyway?”

          • Edward R. Burro says:

            Well, she could have realized that she was spectacularly unqualified before she accepted but that would have required both self-reflection and a desire to put the country ahead of her own ambition.

          • Jacy "Donk" LaRue Jacy "Donk" LaRue says:

            True. But pathological narcissists, and she seems like one to me, don’t think they HAVE any limitations.

            She should become some kind of pro-life advocate for the disabled. The stuff re: her Downs syndrome boy, and how genuine she was to people in the crowd on that issue, was the most moving and powerful to me. And people who covered her at those stops say it was the real deal.

            She should stop thinking she’s a politician and become an advocate for something she believes in.

          • Edward R. Burro says:

            She is a narcissist and that’s why I didn’t feel sorry for her even though Julianne Moore’s portrayal was very sympathetic.

            She’s always been an advocate for something she believes in — herself.

          • Skirt Pull says:

            Um, except she cut special needs funding by 60% while she was AK gov. 60%. She talks the talk, doesn’t walk the walk.

            That’s true.

  20. Albie Quirky says:

    Everyone but me is probably watching Game Change now. We don’t have HBO because we just can’t get it together to watch enough TV to make it worth it $$-wise. Now I am sad.

    Also, my huscat is in the other room reading a comic novel (apparently by Dave Barry and Alan Zweibel) and howling with obstreperous boy giggles.

    Mary may have dumb politics, but she sure does look amazing right now. She’s at SXSW with her boyfriend, sporting that ‘in love’ glow.

  24. Cankles says:

    I hope she ends up at C. Robert Cargill’s movie premier tonight with McCain. They will be skewered by the film geeks from ain’t it cool news where Cargill writes. I am sure Donks won’t have many other options as she is probably persona non grata to the cool kids parties.

  25. MUMPS?? STUNG BY A THOUSAND BEES?? WHAT HAPPENED TO HER FUCKING FACE?? says:

    Interesting that she wasn’t even invited on-stage for Shira Lazar’s show. Her friend Shira is the host, yet Meghan McCain was invited on with Andy Cohen. It’s almost as if Bravo is already ashamed of this hosebeast. (But you didn’t hear it from me…)

    In the meantime, Donk tweets like crazy that she’s at the OMG Bravo show that anyone could get into. Step the fuck off, asshole, it’s not exclusive. You’re frozen out already.

    • MUMPS?? STUNG BY A THOUSAND BEES?? WHAT HAPPENED TO HER FUCKING FACE?? says:

      The same goes for the Bravo party – as easy to get into as Donk’s gaping maw.

      • cankles says:

        Shira Lazar ‏ @shiralazar Close
        Stop by the #SamsungSXSW Blogger lounge for a live chat w/ @McCainBlogette @BravoAndy 4pm youtube.com/whatstrending
        Retweeted by Meghan McCain

        I bet Bravo has enlisted McCain as a friendly handler. She would love her own show but it probably chaps Donks ass that she was not on air with Andy. BTW many SXSW attendees are swooning over him on twitter

        • MUMPS?? STUNG BY A THOUSAND BEES?? WHAT HAPPENED TO HER FUCKING FACE?? says:

          Point blank: There’s a reason why Shira Lazar was not allowed to have Donk on her show with Andy Cohen. Julia Allison is a liability to Bravo and they know it.

          • mcakez: Taste the Passion! of Relationship Tofu! says:

            Then how or why did they let it get to this point? Are they hoping to milk the trainwreck while avoiding association (“we’re laughing at her, not with her!”), or did they just discover she was nutterbutters after the ink had dried on the contract?

          • MUMPS?? STUNG BY A THOUSAND BEES?? WHAT HAPPENED TO HER FUCKING FACE?? says:

            The fact that they’ve been shooting this long – they were supposed to wrap several weeks ago – says it all. She sucks, they know it.

          • Dr. Gary says:

            @MUMPS?? (amazing handle, btw)

            Do you have inside info?

          • MUMPS?? STUNG BY A THOUSAND BEES?? WHAT HAPPENED TO HER FUCKING FACE?? says:

            You could say that, Dr. Gary – especially since you managed to embed that pic earlier.

        • cankles says:

          Well if they know she sucks then the show will be over fast. I honestly hope some guy sees the show, falls for donks, puts a ring on it and she goes away. I can also hope she sees what a mess she is and gets some help but she won’t.

          • MUMPS?? STUNG BY A THOUSAND BEES?? WHAT HAPPENED TO HER FUCKING FACE?? says:

            I’d bet pesos to pancakes that she will never go offline. She will broadcast her life forever because she cannot live without the attention, even if it’s overwhelmingly negative.

          • Dog Yapping & Donkey Tears says:

            I agree.

  26. Donksers says:

    While everyone else is watching Game Change, I went back and read The Greatest Love Story Ever Told by Julia Allison. It is absolutely mind boggling to read the overly-sentimental, dramatic garbage she wrote, keeping in mind that their LOVE STORY consisted of, what? Seeing each other in person a couple dozen times, if that? She is one deranged donkey.

    “I wanted it to be him. I really did. I think he wanted it to be me. But just wanting something really badly isn’t enough, sometimes. Loving someone so much it hurts isn’t enough.”

    And you know what else, Donkey? Love means never having to say you’re sorry! This is great reading if you feel like laughing and barfing at the same time.

    some news.

    Jack and I broke up yesterday.

    I am heartbroken.

    I am heartbroken for so many reasons. Because I loved him. Because I loved our relationship. Because I loved the future we had planned out together – the adventures we were going to have together. The challenges we were going to face together. I thought they were large, but I spent a lot of time figuring out how to make them surmountable.

    I loved the way we had begun to weave two very disparate lives together into something resembling a joint life.

    I loved sitting on the couch with him while he studied and I worked, or he studied and I read, or he studied and I napped. He studied a lot. :) And I loved that about him. I loved how seriously he approached his work, I loved his dedication. I loved how passionate he was about flying, even though when I met him, I knew nothing – absolutely nothing – about it. I knew nothing about the military in general! But, as bizarre as it seemed to people who had known me to avoid any movie even remotely including violence, I loved learning about this strange new world. His passion was infectious, and no matter what question I asked (and I had a lot of them), he seemed to know the answer, and be able to explain it in a way I could understand. I loved that about him.

    I loved his honesty and his loyalty and his unbelievably humble approach to life. Jack doesn’t have an egotistic bone in his body. He is kind. He is disciplined. In an age in which many of us have fallen pray to narcissism and self-involvement (including and most specifically me), he is the anti-thesis of that. He values service above all else. I had never met anyone quite like him. He helped me see how caught up in this false … whatever it is I had. Bravado, maybe? Insecurity masquerading as boastfulness? Self-involvement? He didn’t do it in words – I just had to be around him, and it became clear that the way I had led my life these past few years wasn’t the person I wanted to be, now, or in the future. He allowed me to see some aspects of my life clearly for the first time.

    When I met Jack, I didn’t think this relationship had a shot in hell of working out (and I said as much to him!). Him, in the military for the next eight years (at least!). Me, ready to settle down in a serious relationship. Him, 25-years-old. Me … well, not 25. Not 25 at all. Him, in a stressful and demanding job that would take him away for long periods of time, including a three year tour in Guam, half a world away (with deployments from there). Me, attempting to launch a new column, unsure of where I want to live, but pretty sure it eventually involves San Francisco (where his job would never take him).

    And yet, he reassured me about all of my concerns. I would bring one up, he would shoot it down. He was ready for a serious relationship – we talked about what kind of life we could have if we stayed together. But I kept trying to reconcile these two life paths … and I couldn’t. Him achieving his dreams would crush mine. And me achieving my dreams would crush his.

    We could have continued, happily, for many more months, until he went away to Guam, and then I could have visited him, and we would have tried hard to make it through. But a few weeks ago, he got his schedule for the next 24 months, and it was more brutal than he had ever anticipated. Reality set in for both of us. And the reality is that his life is not conducive to a relationship. He will have literally no time for me, very soon. If it were just three years, that would be one thing. That would be really hard, but it would be possible. But it’s not. It’s eight years … and maybe more. When he looks down the line, the truth is, he doesn’t know whether he wants to stay in the military or not. And I don’t think – as much as I respect the incredible women and men who are military spouses – I don’t think it’s the life for me.

    And so we come to yesterday. I started the conversation, not knowing it would end where it did. I told him how grateful I was for everything he had taught me, for everything he had brought into my life. I am. I told him how much I loved him. I do love him, very much. He is one of the most amazing men I have ever met in my life. I loved being his girlfriend. I don’t remember the last time I was this happy.

    But as we talked, it was clear we both knew if we didn’t end it then, we would end it eventually, and because we loved each other, the longer we went, the more intertwined our lives would become, and the more painful the break-up. That’s the “logical” side of me talking. The illogical side has been crying for about 24 hours straight. Am I okay? No. I’m not okay. I’m not at all okay.

    I’m heartbroken. I don’t know how else to put it. I don’t want to date anyone else. I don’t want to be with anyone else. And yet, I know I can’t be with him. So where does that leave me? I don’t even know.

    I woke up this morning hoping it was all a bad dream. I even told him that I changed my mind, that I thought we should just keep going until Guam. I cried and cried and cried some more. But he – being the smarter of the two of us – told me that our logic was sound yesterday, and that extending it when we knew the ending would just create more pain, worse pain down the road. I know he’s right, but I hate it nonetheless.

    This is an amicable heartbreak, as silly as it feels to write that out. We will stay friends, absolutely. We love each other, and have no desire to leave each others’ lives as people. And yet, right now, I look at him and all I see is my boyfriend. So this will take some time.

    I will be in Coronado for the next few days. As some of you know, I had moved in (we made that decision over SXSW back in March). I will move all of my stuff back to Chicago on Monday.

    Then what? I don’t know.

    I wish I could show you how I’m feeling. I’m just raw. I’m exhausted. It hurts, bad. I thought he could be it … and I was so ready to build a life with someone. I wanted it to be him. I really did. I think he wanted it to be me. But just wanting something really badly isn’t enough, sometimes. Loving someone so much it hurts isn’t enough.

    I feel broken.

    And really, really sad.

      “I loved sitting on the couch with him while he studied and I worked*, or he studied and I read Us Weekly, or he studied and I napped. He studied a lot. :) (What I’m saying is, I’m lazy, there. Get it?) Or when he napped, and I studied his web history and email account. Such good times.”

      *Bwahaha.

    • Jacy "Donk" LaRue Jacy "Donk" LaRue says:

      The fucking melodrama was OFF THE CHARTS with that one … huh, I wonder why, it couldn’t have been because he was semi-famous, could it, and she wanted to milk her association with him to the hilt?

      I knew, I just knew, she was grossly exaggerating it too. It reads just so fake. And sure enough, she was!!

    • How Brayella Got Her Hoove Black says:

      We love each other, and have no desire to leave each others’ lives as people.

      There you have it, full disclosure as to why Donkey remains a jackass.

    • Random Snowflake says:

      “it became clear that the way I had led my life these past few years wasn’t the person I wanted to be, now, or in the future”

      Yet she went back her same old self-involved, narcissistic, bragging, name dropping, inconsiderate self in no time. Donk does not change.

      • Jacy "Donk" LaRue Jacy "Donk" LaRue says:

        Never ever ever ever ever.

        And don’t think the guys who date her, and to whom she swears she is changing, don’t totally see through her bullshit the minute she’s uttering it.

    • Frequent Liar Miles says:

      “Couple dozen times” seems too generous. I would guess closer to a dozen.

    LULZ.

  28. I'm guessing it's biology. says:

    Hey, JA is mentioned in the Shira/Andy/Tits video at 5:20:

    http://whatstrending.com/2012/03/live-show-sxsw-2012-meghan-mccain-andy-cohen/

    Dunno what to think of their reactions; there certainly is a bit of giggling…

    • Jack the Bravo Bulldog says:

      Such an awkward moment! Shira gestures to the unseen hosebeast and Cohen barely acknowledges JA. Distaste? Does he even know who she is?

      • I'm guessing it's biology. says:

        I don’t know. It seems like he knows her, no?

        • Jack the Bravo Bulldog says:

          Yes, I think so but Mr. Adorable sure didn’t go out of his way to say hello or nod or really even acknowledge that a donkey was part of the Bravo family.

    • NonSobriety says:

      They all clap for non censorship, donkey hee haws “BRAAAAAAAYYYYY” which is why Tits mentioned her. Julia was practically begging to be acknowledged so Tits obliged. Cohen is obv annoyed and seems generally disinterested in being there. Shira was fawning over him to an embarrassing extent. “I’ve known you forever.” Oh lord.

      • Jacy "Donk" LaRue Jacy "Donk" LaRue says:

        Exactly. That was her Heee-hawwwing about no censorship. How strange, however, given she’s tried to censor this blog and its commenters for years.

        Cohen barely acknowledged her. Think about how many nagging emails from Donkey must have been in his inbox over the years. Imagine the freakout when the original Bravo pilot failed because test audiences hated her? He must have learned the hard way not to engage her and make his underlings deal.

  29. I'm guessing it's biology. says:

    I mean, it doesn’t seem like he hates her…Anyway! Interesting.

    • Jack the Bravo Bulldog says:

      He looks exhausted. No sleep. Donkey’s regime doesn’t work well for non-burros. Hoping we get some intel here.

      • Jack the Bravo Bulldog says:

        Um, er, oops! Regimen! A donkey regime is too frightening to even contemplate.

    • freudian bray says:

      “I think of myself as a class clown.” Whoa.
      The whole thing about her just wanting people to laugh and how she “overestimated people’s ability to see through to the real Julia” is bananas. You aren’t Andy Kaufman! You aren’t deliberately making any social commentary with your super sad life!

      Exclamation pointssss!! (I’m really tired, you guys. Happy Daylight Savings!)

  31. Sacred Scrapbooks says:

    Julia Tweedledum and Julia Tweedledee have a piece in today’s NY Post, “Carrie’d Away! A warning to a new generation of women — don’t let ‘Sex and the City’ ruin your life”.

    http://www.nypost.com/p/news/opinion/opedcolumnists/carrie_away_F2mbhFEqbCj9cC52y8wAFO

    It’s hilarious how Julia constructs new autobiographies to hide behind.

    • She's a cruel and strange bitch says:

      Wow. How of the moment. They’ve really tapped into a major concern for women in 2012.

      Seriously, does Sarah Jessica Parker even think about SatC anymore?

      • The Missing Davos Report says:

        Sadly, yes, she does. Decided to take an (arguably) good TV show that ended appropriately and insult the fans with two awful movies.

    • CUNTBunnies! says:

      I’m pretty sure the NY Post goofed with that pic of them. This is clearly the one that should run alongside that “article”.

    • The Manta says:

      Ah nothing better than some post facto justification for why she left, or was basically forced to leave.

    • CUNTBunnies! says:

      Also, I think that “sanatorium”* should be co-opted for some sort of Rick Santorum-related insanity defense plea (seriously, he’s not gonna get nominated, right? RIGHT?!? I’m so embarrassed for my birth-state FOR REALZ, YO. He terrifies me.) (Although maybe if he’s nominated that’d be a good thing because then Obama would win? Please, God-I-don’t-rilly-believe-in, I don’t ask for much.)

      *(even tho I grew up spelling it “sanitorium” the fucking dictionary sites say that this spelling is acceptable)

    • TAKEN to Paris says:

      The question being, who wrote this? Or rather, what did the original look like?

      (Second byline billing? Countdown ’til she demands a correction…)

      • Already Pantless says:

        I suspect Robin Baugher still writes anything of Donkey’s longer than three sentences. I mean, what else does she have going on, and I bet it gives her a bit of a thrill to see her name in the publications Donkey shams her way into.

      • Already Pantless says:

        See her writing, rather.

    • Who do you think you are? says:

      Boy, that piece doesn’t come anywhere close to describing my or my friends’ experience with New York City, aside from the limited income and what it affords you when you are young. How about the stories of the vast number of people who come here to, you know, build careers?

      How on earth did this piece even come to be?

      • Already Pantless says:

        “There’s a creative energy flourishing [in L.A.] that seemed to be stifled in New York.”

        What the frocke? I just left New York City after 17 years, and what I miss most is being inspired by the creative excellence of my fellow designers and challenged to always push my work in new directions. The bar is set pretty high and the competition brought out the best in me.

        Was I in a different New York City?

    • Little girl pedaling alone in the rain with her own wet cake says:

      This thing piece of crap is disgusting….and the column is pretty bad, too.

      She spends HALF the column writing about how fabulush and importhant her life was in New York. Half of it! She could have gotten that all out in 2-3 sentences…but then again Julia Allison is a retard who couldn’t write her way out of a paper bag.

      And honey, you can try to remember the past any way you want, but we (and The Bravo producers! Hi, team Bravo!) both know your raft ass FLUNKED OUT of NYC after you burned/destroyed/wasted every single genuine friend or opportunity you had in this city.

      Also your face is completely fucked now. Enjoy the next 20 years of your life.

      • Donksers says:

        How dare you! Julia Allison is a famous writer/author/journalist/traveler/woman-in-tech/founder/ceo/herpderp dancer. She deserves some respect!

    • Not! Random! says:

      Two women in their 30s get tired of the superficial, youth-obsessed world of NYC so they move to . . . LA? Yeah, that’s really going to resonate.
