Donkey Says Perfect First-Date Dress Suggests You’ll Blow Him On The Way To Meet His Mother, Not That There’s Anything Wrong With That

But Momsers and Dadsers must be so proud, huh? I am sure their pals at the University Club, and the First Congregational Church of Wilmette, are going to be so very happy for Robin and Peter.

  1. Scooby Don't says:

    Well if she does that I’m sure it’s the only time on the date she’s not braying about herself.

  2. JFA says:

    I can’t watch at work! Can someone summarize?

    Also her Madonna/Whore schtick is getting so fucking tired already. Pick a lane asshole. Are you a liberated sexual woman (LOL!) or do you withhold for 11.5 dates to get what you want? How about, I don’t know, growing the fuck up, shutting your mouth and just doing what feels good?

    Ugh.

  3. JFA says:

    Also jesus christ those are unnattractive hands. My word. This is the stuff of nightmares. My boyfriend is sniffing around trying to figure out why I read this site. I have yet to explain JA to him. I am scared he will say she is cute and I will have to dump him. I doubt that’ll happen but…if it did, it would all be over.

  4. word says:

    Oh my god this is going to be a trainwreck. I am already feeling so embarrassed for her based on that small clip.

    Also, I will need a lot of wine to watch this show.

    @JFA: Julia tries on a few Kardashian inspired ensembles to prepare for a first date, slaps her ass, and proclaims that the best first date outfit should say “you can take me home to your mom, and I might also give you a blowjob in the car on the way over there.” or something like that.

    vom in the shower

    • JFA says:

      OH. My. God.

      I actually feel sorry for her parents. I really do. Watching her try SO HARD to be a tv persona is going to be so painful! Simultaneously hilarious and just so fucking cringe-worthy!

      What a disgusting whore. Yes I will say whore. Because whores use sex to get what they want. She’s using sexuality to try to be SEXAY etc instead of you know, actually owning it because she likes to fuck. Just sit the fuck down asshole.

    • Charles Forman was her Jake Lodwick Lite says:

      I think that line could be funny, but just not coming from Julia. No matter what material she’s given to work with, she has no delivery and no likable presence.

      Everything she says sounds like she took it straight from the Carrie Bradshaw playbook: “There’s no bad dates, just good brunch stories.” Except Carrie Bradshaw was very 1999.

      • jamsjam says:

        Her entire personality is shaped by “Sex and the City.” She was what, a teenager, in hicktown when the show first aired? And now that she’s of a mature age, every step she takes is from Carrie Bradshaw’s playbook. The persona, the shrill, the tutus (petticoats), the phoney coyness, the horrific fashion & “style”. Homegirl is stuck in the late 90′s and early aughts, pretending to be a character from a TV show. That’s all kinds of crazy.

    • ICrayAnAwfulLotLately says:

      She also says there are no bad dates, just good dates or good brunch stories. (Paraphrasing.)
      No mention of providing her with twitter/FB fodder for indiscreet humblebrags and/or nasty bitchslaps to broadcast to all and sundry when Wally Wallet du jour doesn’t live up to her expectations.

    • Peltergeist says:

      I like how she tries on three dresses that are the exact same style yet can’t decide between them.

    • *fist shakes* says:

      I literally did a facepalm while watching this.

    • Patricia Grace says:

      I am also a bit late to this party… having just seen a few promos for the show — but, WOW — those are an unattractive group of women! I guess if they were really pretty smart cool (ie, non grating voices, for starters), they wouldn’t be on a show like that.

      Trainwrech, please!

      Also, does anyone know why JA looks so puffy? (Her face, I mean.) Is there some cosmetic/plastic surgery thing going on that I don’t know about?

  5. Jacy "Donk" LaRue Jacy "Donk" LaRue says:

    Interesting sponsored Tweet from someone who claims she can’t eat gluten or sugar:

    JuliaAllison: Which #QuakerSoftBakedBar are you loving, Banana Nut Bread or the Cinnamon Pecan? RT w/ your fave flavor! #ad

    • ICrayAnAwfulLotLately says:

      Honestly. WTF?
      And which flavor is your favorite JABa?
      The gluten free/sugar free one that doesn’t exist?
      Actually, maybe it does make sense after all … if you switch out QuakerSoftBakedBar and replace it with “eligible man who might be interested in madam Bravo relationship expert over there”, cause he ain’t all up in the category of things that actually exist either.
      (Too long to hashtag though; maybe that’s why she’s going with the cereal bars instead.)

    • Peltergeist says:

      She only advertises junk food. There’s a joke in there somewhere but I’m too tired to find it.

      • Scooby Don't says:

        Junk food, junk career, junk style, junk philosophies….
        Junkyard queen!

      • Donkey only advertises junk food because cliched Donkey is so cliche, as in “You are what you eat” applies perfectly to both her outward appearance & her soul as well.

        Dang, did I just give Donkey credit for doing something right? Now I’m anxiously awaiting the verdict of the Comment Police … will this pass muster / mustard (Hai, MMBH!)?

    • Malformed Face (Like a Balloon Left in a Hot Car) says:

      @Jacy after she went on and on during her talk with Christine Kelly and Randi Zuckerberg that she would only endorse products she truly loves and would use.

      Um, okay, Donkey, okay!

    • Helena (Lots And Lots Of Love And Light And Bach) says:

      RT w/ my favorite restaurant!!

  6. Charles Forman was her Jake Lodwick Lite says:

    Why is her room so messy?! There’s just shit all over the floor — not like clutter or clothes, but actual trash. What are those things, wadded up Kleenxes?

    I take this as yet more evidence Julia is really depressed. I’m not a tidy person by nature, but when I’m feeling down and out, my apartment definitely shows it. I remember Julia saying before, when she lived in New York, that she’s anally neat. Her NYC apartment always struck me as pretty clean.

    • Scooby Don't says:

      http://gawker.com/5004787/inside-julia-allisons-apartment
      The video attached to this article is priceless. The tacky thigh high suede boots make a guest appearance.

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

        There is so much earnest, unintentional hilarity there. She really is the biggest tool.

      • Fat Freddys Cat says:

        She’s outgrown Gawker. She’s embarrassing herself on a bigger stage now, thank you. [sniff]

    • Who do you think you are? says:

      Her room is disgusting – did she even consider the fact that it’d come across as a pigsty on camera?

      I noticed, too, that when her date came to collect her, she very quickly shut the door behind her. It didn’t seem pre-meditated for the camera blocking; rather, it felt like (1) she didn’t want to let him see inside and, (2) she just wanted to get the date over with. And to that point, she comes off as tired and less than thrilled. He seems to just be going through the motions, too.

      This is going to be painful.

      • Tremendous Liar; Donkey Repugnant says:

        My reading of the body language and such is that she thought she was better than him, and he was just using this for the photo op. What a hot date!

      • bitchface says:

        um plus I’m usually saying “byeeee babies, mommy will be home soon!” to my dogs when I leave them for the umpteenth time alone, but Lily’s probably crying in the closet like usual

        • Norse Horse, Task Ass says:

          At the beginning of the clip she snaps at Lily- “C’mon! Gotta get ready- c’mon!” in this bitchy exasperated way. Why do you need the dog to get dressed?

      • Malformed Face (Like a Balloon Left in a Hot Car) says:

        That room looks like it belongs on Hoaders – it it disgusting. Trash all over the bed. WHAT. IS. WRONG. WITH. HER.????

        PS, the clip is soooooo boring.

        • Malformed Face (Like a Balloon Left in a Hot Car) says:

          “Hoarders”… dear God, SSSF, so much trash.

          (Don’t Donkeys eat trash? I imagine it’s gluten free!!!!)

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

      It looks like she must have just moved in and she hadn’t fully unpacked yet. Yes, I hit pause and checked out the situation. Still all sorts of pink shit in boxes and tote bags.

    • Helena (Lots And Lots Of Love And Light And Bach) says:

      I have no idea what her NYC stable looked like, but I think that HER saying that she’s anally neat is about as relevant as her saying that humor is really important to her and she can’t communicate without it, or whatever it was that constituted her biggest problem when she was OMG abroad in an OMG Latin American country and expected to speak Spanish. Or her saying that she is shy, girly, “SO NICE.” Or that she loves maps and frequently engages in hours long conversations about architecture. Etc.

      Meaning, when Donkey says Donkey is X, I am very inclined to believe that Donkey is as far from X as mathematically (it’s hardz 4 girls) possible.

      Also, being neat involves WORK. Does that sound like a Donkey Alfersons kinda thing?

      • emma bourricot says:

        I agree. Julia’s NYC apartment may have looked sparse but I always suspected her closets were another matter altogether. This is the woman who kept tampons in her kitchen cabinets. She doesn’t seem at all organized to me — instead someone who has piles and piles of clothes in her closet and nothing but juice and nail polish in her refrigerator — an empty exterior and a staggering mess inside, which describes Julia in more ways than one. A homemaker she isn’t. Even if she had just moved in, what’s all that shit doing on the bed while cameras are rolling? The one who claimed publicly to lint roll her bedspread every morning can’t hide her mess under the bed until she gets unpacked?

        • juliajane says:

          A long time ago someone who worked for Julia leaked all these funny details about how she organised her apartment and the food she ate, but for the life of me I can’t remember any of them. Something about nail polish in the fridge maybe? Does anyone remember??

        • Helena (Lots And Lots Of Love And Light And Bach) says:

          Traumatizingly enough (although thanks for at least blocking the memories last night, brain!), I also remember some pretty hardcore photographic evidence that the concept of basic hygiene is not pink enough for our Donks. All the recently featured greasy pelts galore aside, stunningly nasty hoof covers situated in the middle of a plane aisle, anyone? Yeah, totally what an anally neat person would 1) think of doing, 2) do, and 3) document by taking a pic and posting it online.

          She really must be as neat as she is nice.

  7. JFA says:

    Okay I watched
    It. Who dresses like that on a first date wtf??? On my first
    Date w my current bf we went to a dive bar
    And then to get drunken tacos. I wore jeans. It was fun and casual
    Because we are
    Not 95 years old. Seriously one those
    Of those dresses
    Looked like a wedding party dress. Nothing says sexy like trying too
    Hard.

  8. Julia's Crypt Keeper says:

    Is there a BravoSexTape coming?

  9. Handbag Cohen Stuffed With Hair says:

    My daughters turn 28 this summer, and if either of them ever said such a thing — if either said it in the privacy of their own homes and I overheard it — I would seriously wonder what I had done wrong and how their lives had gone so astray.

    • Tremendous Liar; Donkey Repugnant says:

      But what if the guy they were talking about had a powerful mom and hit all 73 points on the checklist?

      • Handbag Cohen Stuffed With Hair says:

        I’m sure I’d be all like “Try to keep your seatbelt on, dear.”

    • Jack the Bulldog says:

      I remember a story appearing in the Washington Post on the day of Julia’s graduation. All about college women keeping lists of the men they’d fucked while in school. I believe Julia was the only one to give her name, and I indeed wondered where exactly the Boogers went wrong.

      • mcakez says:

        How does she always find these opportunities to be quoted? I do not understand. It doesn’t seem normal to me.

        • Joardache & the Pelts says:

          Julia was on the WP ‘s radar because of the Hoya plagiarism thing. Also I seem to recall some sort of dumb feature on her in the Style section. And she knew that horrible Lloyd Grove, who might have still been at the WP at the time….

          • Jack the Bulldog says:

            She was also sucking up to Michael Wilbon, among others. Transparent Donkey is Transparent.

          • Patricia Grace says:

            I also have to say, having seen him around NYC, Lloyd Grove has to be the MOST unattractive man I have ever seen in my life… well, okay, not in my entire life, but I certainly would not have a conversation with the guy, or meet him for coffee or a drink, or anything. Dorksville.

      • Dr. Gary says:

        This looks like the article:

        http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A46835-2004May21.html

        “Julia Baugher, who graduated this month from Georgetown, wrote about numbers in her sex column for the student newspaper. “If x = Number [that women] say they’ve slept with,” she wrote, “then the Actual Number is x + Number she wishes she hadn’t slept with.”

        “I used to be really [picky] about my number,” says Baugher, who keeps a running total on a computerized spreadsheet with side comments such as “weird teeth” and “future med student.”

        “I said everything counted,” she continues. “I was approaching double digits and I didn’t like it, but I didn’t think there was anything I could do about it.”

        Then she came across the irreverent paperback “The Catholic Girl’s Guide to Sex,” which lists all the reasons a girl can use to knock a guy off the list: She was drunk, or on vacation. It was an accident, or he was an ex.”

        Oh look, Jack! They also quote your new BFF, Kristin Thorne:

        “Kristin Thorne, who graduated this year from Georgetown University, attended a Catholic high school where, she says, “girls typed up lists showing how many guys they hooked up with.” (“Hooked up” is a deliberately vague term coined by this generation to mean anything from serious kissing to intercourse.)

        Once they arrived at college, two friends told her they planned not to have sex with more than 10 guys, but if they did, number 11 would become their husbands. “I think they were hoping to settle down,” Thorne said.

        Then number 11 came along. They called Thorne and “laughed at themselves. They’ve now moved beyond that number and are still searching.”

        • Helena (Lots And Lots Of Love And Light And Bach) says:

          I didn’t click the link, so I might be missing something crucial in the context, but I literally genuinely don’t understand what that shit is supposed to MEAN. Dumb chicks sleep with men that aren’t worthy “settling down” with and later they regret it? And they keep lists of those unfortunate menz that include “future med students?” Where did WaPo get the idea that this is interesting? People temporarily “hooking up with” other people? Bwuh?

        • Jack the Bulldog says:

          Good work, Dr. G! I remember everyone tittering about Julia’s asinine comments in the WP, embarrassing the university once again, but I’d forgotten ol’ Glistening Lips was also idiotic enough to let herself be quoted. Wonder who talked her into it?

          Fascinating, Kristin, fascinating stuff!

  10. Tremendous Liar; Donkey Repugnant says:

    No way Julia will ever give a blow job. The clue is the “job” in the name. You can, however, request a blow desk errand if you’re prepared to fork over the requisite shoes (two pairs).

  11. KashMoney says:

    I think she’s trying to talk in soundbites for the show, but all it is is mortifying.

    • KrakenSkulls says:

      Yes, let’s give our pet donkey some credit. She’s been preparing her whole life for this show. I’m sure she would have allowed a green infrared fuck-camera if any of her dates bothered to sleep over.

  12. Peltergeist says:

    I feel like I’m harping on the minor detail that she’s completely invented her entire work history, but… If you were watching someone nutty on TV and her title was “dating columnist,” wouldn’t you go straight to Google to find some of her columns?

    • Tremendous Liar; Donkey Repugnant says:

      Pearsonally, I would crowdsource it on Twitter.

    • KrakenSkulls says:

      Especially if she has winning advice like “Suck dick on the first date”.

      Man there are gonna be so many noobs that wind up here.. “HEY GUYS WHERE IS THE DATING COLUMN? ALL I CAN FIND IS THIS WEIRD TECH ETIQUETTE BULLSHIT”

  13. Can-Swiss says:

    I know we say this all the time, but GOD is her face fucked up.

    • rankles the jankles says:

      I almost posted the same thing and didn’t because I feel like we’re beating a dead donkey but HOLY SHIT IS HER FACE FUCKED.

    • Malformed Face (Like a Balloon Left in a Hot Car) says:

      Whta’s crazy is for her face to look SO BAD when it’s been professionally lit. Damn. And WHERE. ARE. HER. EYES????

  14. JFA says:

    Seriously you could not pay me enough to say something like that on television. Forget about that shit being saved for posterity, but I cringe just imagining my father watching me make a comment like that. Ugh.

    And her delivery. I can’t. So this show appeals to whom again, exactly? It’s in no way shocking or edgy. It’s boring. no one is going to watch this shit. It’s sorta hilarious to think about this even getting a green light. Who thought this would be a runaway success?

    • Jack the Bulldog says:

      I do feel sorry for her mother, but I won’t cut Dad$er any slack since he decided to throw out the First Amendment in order to protect his wittle pink princess. Hope light in the loafers Petey overhears his colleagues talking about his trashy, fellatio-on-the-first-date spawn when making his way to the water cooler.

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

        I really hope that Daddy knows that a month ago, his idiotic daughter tried to leak to her “hate site” the name of some dude she claims to be dating. After he embarrassed himself professionally to try to have us shut down. I would have lost my shit if I was him.

      • JFA says:

        I’m a bit conflicted. I am going to take a wild guess that she literally harangued her father for YEARS to flex his lawyer muscles. So he threw her a bone. IT’s not right, it wasn’t very professional…but from what I understand (I could be wrong?) he dropped it. MOst likely because he had no case but also because he probably was glad to not have to do anything else.

        I still feel sorry for them to have spawned this. They have to deal with her FOREVER. And they can’t be all bad if they produced Brit, who seems fine. I mean I can’t stand Dadsers usu but I still pity them.

        • ShesJustStupid says:

          I remain firmly in the “these people suck” camp. My brother lives in Wilmette. I’ve met a lot of rich, out-of-touch parents there, but not the enablers that these folks are. #somethingiswrong

        • Amuse-douche says:

          I think that whole thing was based on the fact that she was dating Jack and daddy wanted her to look good. I’m so sorry so fat so drunk so tired, don’t comment much, but I thing ol’ Petey saw it as an opportunity to finally get his lazy daughter off his back. If he could just get rid of the Internet trail then omg fresh water pearls in dish gloves might finally find another wallet to sponge off of and leave him and Raul in peace.

    • Donkey of Perdition says:

      It was plastic and rehearsed. It’s porno quality acting. Those are the shows highlights, ugggh, the rest has to be absolutely terrible.

      • Jack the Bulldog says:

        The trailer should sizzle and, as you note, contain the show’s highlights. I found it boring as fuck, and the naughty-naughty b.j. comment both dated and trashy, and not offering anything beyond that cheap, calculated soundbyte.

  15. Peltergeist says:

    Can we talk about how she’s drying her dry hair in this video? And how when she’s clomping along next to her date she looks like a professional wrestler?

    • bitchface says:

      and making sausage curls

      • Lily's 3rd Eye says:

        And opening her mouth, which makes her eyes open strangely, to get her fingers on her tongue to cover them with spit. Then wiping her two spit covered fingers under her eyes to remove eyeliner.
        Speaking as a filmmaker, the fact that this horrifying moment is being included in the show means that the producers and video editors hate her. Trust.

        • Who do you think you are? says:

          Ew. EW. Use a piece of toilet paper, you dumb donkey. Oh right, you probably don’t have any.

  16. Stripper Shoes of Noooooo says:

    I find it most interesting that Julia says that she is an expert at getting first dates, and yet she had to have all of her dates arranged by Brayvo for this show. If she is so great at getting dates, it should have been a no-brainer. Instead, apparently a no-boner.

  17. Tremendous Liar; Donkey Repugnant says:

    Super-feminist Donkey chooses her clothing solely by the effect she thinks it will have on men.

    Also, laydees who genuinely enjoy sex = very sexy. Laydees who use sex as a weapon to try to get what they want? About as sexy as watching one of Donkey’s several rhinoplasties take place up close. Also reminiscent of the 1950s or some time when women had fewer tools available to get their way. In summary, Julia Allison is unsexy and passé.

    • Peltergeist says:

      She can’t get her giant head around the fact that this weird persona she’s created will not land her a husband. You have to date people for a significant amount of time before you get married in the real world, and pretending to be someone else for three dates isn’t going to do it.

      • Worrisome Pelts says:

        This. She wants a [Jordacted] insta-engagement and it just isn’t going to happen. It makes me think she *just* self-aware enough to realize that her odds of having a ring put on it decrease with every minute she spends in a potential wallet’s company.

        • You know, maybe that explains why Julia Allison Baugher has been stalking DeStorm Power, Jelly Doughnut & Michael Acton-Smith … she (literally!) thinks that musicians are the demographic of men most likely to propose to her in T-minus six weeks, just because it played out that way w/ [Jordacted]?

          Oh, honey … bless your pea-pickin’ li’l heart …

  18. Worrisome Pelts says:

    Julia Allison is unsexy and passé.

    If the entire blog (this one or hers) were nuked and replaced with this sentence, the net effect would be the same.

  19. Jack the Bulldog says:

    Out the door, bunnies, but wouldn’t want to leave w/o posting a Deep Thought from Kristin Thorne for this lovely Friday!

    “I find the human brain so fascinating. Which is why I’m passing along this story about a new study that shows a link between violent video games and aggression. It relies completely on brain waves and patterns. Fascinating stuff.”

    • Handbag Cohen Stuffed With Hair says:

      I love this feature you’ve brought us, Jack.

      • Jack the Bulldog says:

        Thanks, Handbag! I think you’re fascinating!

        • ShesJustStupid says:

          Not for nothing but “Handbag Cohen Stuffed With Hair” makes me at least smile every time I see it because I remember why the “Cohen” was added. Seriously funny thread at the time.

    • Powerful Moms with Fantastic Sons (aka Cindy M's Med Cab) says:

      While Julia is blowing for shoes, Kristin Thorne is blowing for career opportunities, right? Because unless she is secretly somehow related to Walter Cronkite or someone there is honestly no other explaination of how this bitch got anywhere in life! She truly baughles the mind. Her deep thoughts (which I love you bringing us as well, Jack!) are even a step down from those of the blondes of Fox News.

      • Jack the Bulldog says:

        Kristin would wander Georgetown with this blank look on her face while licking wetter than wet porn star lips. I had to suppress giggles whenever running into her. Now I just go to her Facebook page and openly laugh.

        • Fat Freddys Cat says:

          But, Jack, just between use guys…bulldog to tomcat…did KT do the nasty on the regular? Assign, please, on the Slut-O-Meter an appropriate value from 0 (knees tighter than humanly possible) to 10 (train puller, old school). This knowledge is necessary for my planets to remain in alignment.

        • ShesJustStupid says:

          To be a TV reporter these days, you really only need to be able to 1) look good; 2) be a good actor. The wheat from the chaff moment usually comes when they’re asked to do actual live TV for a big event. I went to Medill for an MA years ago and, of my broadcast class of about 15, there were two people who were serious journalists. The ones who actually performed the best in front of a camera (in a scripted setting) were the dumbest.

      • AFGHANI says:

        She’s a suburban beat reporter. I’m missing what she’s achieved. She does really bad fluff segments.

  20. Something tells me that PettiFogger won’t be spending much any time around the Schlump & Vice water cooler during Season I of Bravo’s Miss Advised & that any / all calls to Mom$er will go straight to voice mail until her mailbox is full & won’t accept new messages from the Power Moms of the Kenilworth Deballage.

    Other predictions include Cute & Tiny™ Allie enjoying the ever-living shit out of this fiasco, up to & including Gluten+ catered watch parties & tapings for future generations of Baughers to have & behold (assuming that she doesn’t put the kibosh on Little Brother Britt carrying on the Baugher name due to concerns of congenital insanity, etc.)

    • ShesJustStupid says:

      I hope the local Wilmette paper does a story on this and the whole neighborhood tunes in. How embarrassing for the Baughers. On the other hand, Momsers did visit Donks during the time the filming was going on, so she’s probably on the show. #thesepeoplesuck

    • fig says:

      Maybe Britt really is a genius and his birthday gift was a subtle hint to his parents to spend the summer on a boat. A little sun, a little booze, calming sounds of waves and no TV, internet or neighbours unable to contain their schadenfreude or serious concern.

  21. Cut. Don't use that. says:

    I had to fight to make it through that minute and 15 second clip…literally with my hands over my eyes looking at the screen through my fingers.

    What a cruel twist of fate that someone so obsessed with being on television is such UNADULTERATED CAMERA POISON. Its like a magnetic, repelling force is pushing back against me from the screen. And she looks fucking OLD!

    And again, her attempts at humor/sensuality are just so painfully OFF! But not as “off” as her bedroom? It looked like she literally just had clothes thrown all over the room, crazy woman style.

    This entire thing is pathetic and sad.

  22. [REDACTED'S] mom says:

    After watching that clip, I sure wouldn’t want a son of mine dating this girl.

    Oh, wait.

    As someone who used to often sleep with people on the first date myself, because why not if I liked them enough to go on a date with them, this icks me beyond words because a) it’s so calculating, b) it’s so reductive of sex to a “she gives, he gets”, c) we know that for Julie Albertson the equation is “she gives, he gets, she gets shoes and dresses”, and d) braying about it on the teevee is the epitome of crass. She should change her name to Julia Crassia.

        No one can look at that picture and not agree she had maxiofacial surgery on her lower jaw to pull it forward to fix that overbite of hers. The thing is that one is supposed to look better afterwards. The difference is dramatic improvement in all cases, but hers. Take that Palin kid Bristol. This has got to be karma biting her in the ass that she could have cosmetic surgery and look so much worse.

        Her earlier pointy chin was cute. Now, the muppet mouth makes her face too big for her body. That size face wouldn’t fit a 6’4 man. Jay Leno, maybe.

        • Malformed Face (Like a Balloon Left in a Hot Car) says:

          She brought Donkey chocolates when her Grandmother died but I 100% agree with you – she hasn’t liked any of Donkey’s statuses or wished Donkey well, re: the funeral, etc.

          And it is 100% weird that she has not said anything about Miss Advised (ad) when she had been plugging it on her Facebook and telling her LOLfans that she couldn’t wait to tell them about a secret project she was working on.

I’m one of those people that when my home is in order so is my life and my mental/emotional state. It literally makes me anxious/unproductive/uncomfortable/depressed if things aren’t really clean and reasonably in order. That screen grab will absolutely give me nightmares tonight! Yeesh!

        But seriously, what is with the lips? She has the first symptom of stroke. Is that why she seems brain damaged?

    • Even before you posted this, I was looking at facial & nasal anatomy charts, trying to identify the name of the part of her nose bridge / cheek connection that seems to be perpetually inflamed these days (from snorting Adderall, or is it post-op swelling?) …

      If what I found is right, it’s called the nasalis transverse (or compressor naris), a sphincter-like muscle of the nose … that made me laugh … Mulia Mallison is literally as assface.

      Ok, so am I the only one who’s never seen all this going on in anyone’s nasal area? It sure doesn’t look … normal …

      • Besides some of her nose looking sort of skin-grafty, that close-up of the gap in her front teeth & the dark spot on the inside of one of her bottom teeth leaves me wondering if Donkey doesn’t wear a Snap On Smile … no shame in that, & it could even explain why she thutters onth in a while …

  33. I once got a blow job from Donkey
    It was a little bit wet and all sloppy.
    At the moment of truth
    I missed high at her tooth
    And that’s why her eye is all wonky

  34. Stripper Shoes of Whooaaaaaa!!! says:

    I think Ryan Basford seems like an incredible tool. And he’s short and skinny and young looking. So maybe those two kids will find each other and take each other off the radar screen. One can hope.

    GOMR. Get off my radar.

    • Yo, Stripper …. you were ‘going to stand down on the making fun of the superficial stuff’ (like Donkey’s old nose) because you ‘think we can do better than pointing and laughing at what is the most obvious and banal of aspects’ & ‘would prefer to be using this blog to educate the less knowledgable masses on the truths’ behind Donkey’s sociopathic spin …

      And yet, you ragging now on some random who’s mentioned nowhere else in this post on a blog not at all about him, calling him ‘short and skinny and young looking’ is in direct contradiction your own dictum of last night (therein lies the problem w/ trying to censor &/or micro-manage people on a snark site, of all places).

      No one’s entertainment demands are going to be met all the time.
      If / When mods want input on posting rules, they’ll ask.

      • Stripper Shoes of Whooaaaaaa!!! says:

        I iz sorryz about snarking about the quality of snark, and not very snarkily either.

        I do wish that she would get a boyfriend and go away. Of course neither will ever happen.

  35. AFGHANI says:

    I didn’t pay that much attention, but she was talking about blowing a guy in the car on the way to meet his parents… that would be a bit after the first date usually. But mostly, I don’t see how a BJ is such a big deal that it requires advice. I mean, duh.

    It’s pretty revealing she thinks that it’s important advice to blow your boyfriend.

  36. "Pilot" is the new "keynote" says:

    “If it feels good, do it!” only works when you’re sane and have reasonably reliable instincts. She’s insane, makes bad decision after bad decision, and needs way more reassurance and attention than an emotionally healthy woman. It would be a really poor choice for her to blow or fuck a guy she just met.

    Shocker – she advocates for that poor choice. And that’s why her life will always suck.

  37. AFGHANI'S ROMANTIC OYSTER N CHAMPAGNE SHACK says:

    OK so I wanted to test my hypothesis that the $400/night (Air BnB) “beach home” (but yet… it’s on a canal full of sewage and surrounded by cookie cutter apartments full of senior citizens) is a pile of shit.

    Paused it at :09… They have the cheapest Jenweld doors I’ve seen… the same doors I would put on a house in a bad area of town. Or in an apartment that rents for 1/3 the price of whatever Donk pays. Thin, flimsy, and they don’t open and close properly like a door with some heft to it.

    Also? There are no thresholds ANYWHERE in that apartment. Is this a West Coast thing (**flashes west coast gang signs**)? Really, is that how you guys roll?

    On the positive side, I do like the motion activated light… nice to not have to fish for the light switch if you need to relieve yourself in the middle of the night.

    The octagonal mirror makes its first appearance here… it looks out of place. That place is so commercial, I could recreate that bathroom out of stock items at my Eastern Avenue Home Depot here in B’more. No joke. But of course I would take the tile all the way up the wall, none of this 36″ of tile. I do like that the tiles were spaced 1/8″ or butted up against each other (I can’t tell, but it’s obvious they aren’t 1/4″ because the grout lines would be visible. I rewinded this a few times to look and I didn’t see any shadows on grout lines as the video rolled.)

    The lighting situation in that bathroom is weird–really good lighting on the side with the jacuzzi, yet bad on the side by the sink where you need the light more. Bathrooms are one area where you can get good bright light without having to throw a dimmer on it. It looks like 1 weak vanity light and 1 or 2recessed lights over the tub area that we really can’t see. (kind of visible at :18).

    The window at :12 is rather unremarkable. I don’t think windows matter that much in SoCal. Anything new will have some low E coating to minimie solar heat gain, so I can’t do the same time of window rant as NYC, Chicago, or anywhere with a winter. Blah.

    Moving along, at :19, I see what looks like a huge mirror and a smaller mirror. How many fucking mirrors does she need/have?

    At :21 I nearly lost it… WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT FLOOR????!!?!?!111 Too shiny, too industrial looking. Is that Allure? If not Allure, then it’s a competitor brand also made for high traffic and/or commercial areas.

    At this point I just threw my hands up and kind of gave up on the video; the only other thing I remember is a wall of glass block at :45ish which really stuck out. Things like that just look bad over time, very dated. When was that place built? Isn’t it new(ish?)???

    Last thought–what’s up with Julia and midgets these days? This guy is tiny and cute (?), I thought I remember back in the day Julia said she liked taller guys? But now they’re mostly short or hideously ugly. Or they’re pastries.

    Afghani out.

        The bathroom really needs a threshold. Look at it. Just LOOK at it. I never said every room needed one.

        • LOL — LEGALESES, bunnies!

          Even if you never specifically ‘every’ room needed one, when you shrieked: “There are no thresholds ANYWHERE” (!!!), you pretty much implied that random thresholds seem to hold as much import as load-bearing walls.

          And why, pray tell, does a bathroom need a threshold?

        • Lilly Liberation Front (formerly Whackjob of Whimsy) says:

          I’m on my phone, so I couldn’t see too clearly. It’s not something I pay attention to, unless the floors really are different in every room. Wood in the living room, white carpet for one bedroom, blue carpet for another, beige carpet for the stairs. Jesus. Drives me crazy!

            Like any material, concrete can be done well or poorly. You’d have to show me examples.

            In the case of Julia’s floors, I’m not criticizing that they’re laminate. Laminate is the bomb for a rental property, coming in at 20-30% of the price of real wood. What I am criticizing is how try-too-hard it looks. It’s super glossy.

          • I love ‘em! I know so many people who’ve pulled out carpet in slab foundation houses & painted the concrete — no regrets, any of ‘em.

          What on god’s green earth is a “threshold?” I gotta ask. I live in a 800 sq. ft. one bedroom with a galley kitchen and I think I’m livin’ large here in nyc. Parquet floors nonetheless. I do like the commentary though. I’ve come to believe my windows are for shit, but my level for “win” is pretty low after years of walk up studios. Is a threshold something to do with changing the look of the next room (LOL given the years of living on one room)?

          • AFGHANI'S ROMANTIC OYSTER N CHAMPAGNE SHACK says:

            Thresholds add some structure to a room and are particularly good for mating certain flooring materials together, e.g. wood and tile. Marble is probably the most common threshold material.

          • A threshold is that transition between a change in flooring material, like for instance, the metal strips where carpet meets tile, or a wooden strip where wood planks meet kitchen linoleum.

            In a nutshell, old school. Low curbs, if you will.

          • ShesJustStupid says:

            In other words, I have a threshold because the blackish tile in my galley ktichen hops a little wood strip to give onto my parquet floor, right? As someone who’s still thrilled to have a dishwasher three years on, I find this all very enlightening.

          • Yep, SJS. And nothing wrong w/ ‘em where they exist, it’s just strange when they’re still resorted to, if that makes sense.

            Also, there are transitions & there are transitions — a threshold can be a transition but a transition isn’t necessarily a threshold.

            I have no idea where AFF gets the notion that marble is the most common threshold material — I’ll argue that shit all day long, unless he meant something other than what he said.

          • Random Snowflake says:

            That caulk is definitely not up to par.

          • Ass Baughers Syndrome says:

            I have thresholds in every gd room in my house and tell myself I’ll get around to sanding and restaining them all.

          • Ass Baughers Syndrome says:

            Also, wood is the most common threshold, marble being only common to bathrooms

          • mule on rouge says:

            Brayella, you are so feisty today! Everything okay, sweet cheeks? On another note, I am a home improvement enthusiast and I am confused about how my carpeted bedroom can transition to my vinyl bathroom floor without that gold metal strip in the doorway. I always thought that strip was called a threshold. Gotta get my learn on, yo!

          • @Mule on Rouge: (apologies in advance to others for TL;DR, but she did ask)

            In newer construction, the underlay for hard surface floor can be (very often is) intentionally built-up so that the surface of the carpet sits at the same elevation as the surface of the hard flooring* — thresholds are usually non-existent — care does need to be taken though when mopping so as not to swish dirty water into the carpet’s edge, & maybe that’s AFF’s preference for a tangible threshold? Most people just take care not to get the carpet wet by hand cleaning perimeters, similar to how you probably wouldn’t bang a vacuum up against table legs?

            * same effect results in older homes when multiple layers have been installed during previous renovations.

            Types of transitions / thresholds that may accommodate future home improvement needs are commonly referred to as: Snap-down reducers; Flange tracks; Reducer strips; T-thresholds.

            I personally am of the opinion that when the choice is either handicap-friendly or not, that the former is the choice to make, because when it comes to resale, that’s a large & growing demographic of potential buyers who you don’t want to have closed yourself off to, or you know, you may even suddenly / eventually also find yourself in that demographic one day.

            ‘Feisty’? I prefer ‘catty’, doncha know? :-)

          • Joardache & the Pelts says:

            This is hilarious, just had to add my two bits. I most commonly see marble used as a threshold between hardwood floors and that black and white checkered 40s bathroom tile. I think it was in vogue then, especially in federal style houses built around the midcentury.
            The original structure of my house is 200 plus years old and I don’t see any thresholds there. But the parts that added in back in the 1940s and 80s do – most of them are wood. I like my thresholds and they serve as nice transitions. Ive never tripped on any of them. I also get sick sometimes of having an old house and long for a wide open modernist home with no thresholds (and nice smooth cool terrazzo floors) so there you go.

          • Albie Quirky says:

            We call them “doorsills” here in Massachusetts.

            We have several nice ones in our place, and one spectacularly gorgeous one, which our hippie contractor made in a fit of the sulks after he had mistakenly nailgunned through a gas line and the plumbers had to come out.

            He retired to his converted-to-biodiesel schoolbus like Achilles to his tent, and emerged three or four hours later with this piece of wood that was streamlined like a motherfucking Brancusi. It is the most gorgeous hand-finished piece of wood in our entire house, and it hurt a little to see him nail it to the floor.

    I finally watched it. She is so painfully awkward to watch (read and listen to). Who the fuck wears dresses on first dates? She thought she was so funny with that blowjob comment but it was super creepy and weird. You don’t have to watch more than a 2 minute clip to see why she is perenially single.

    This seemed about right.

  42. SPOILER ALERT RE: the “Young Adult” movie …
    Scroll on by if you have plans to watch it ….

    Okay, so I just finished watching it & for those who’ve seen it, I have a question:

    Anyone else think that the Collette Wolfe character (Sandra Freehauf, Matt’s sister), in Donkey’s real life vomcom is none other than Christine Kelly? That is so how I imagine her, fawning over Donkey all girl-crush like, encouraging her to be more Donkey than she already is.

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

      I think Lasagna is more that person. At least Christine Kelly has a career.

      • I forgot about Lasagna, but thinking about her now, she seems more of a whupped dog w/ a broken spirit than a fangirl w/ a donkey crush. Poor Lasagna, I can’t even imagine her working up enthusiasm, she seems so martyr-like.

        Too close to call?

      • LEFOOLIEH says:

        Tots Lasagna. Never understood why CK insists on always-ing the donkey, but at least she occasionally takes the odd snide swipe in response to Julie’s antics and publicly posts them on her FB wall. Before Lasagna got cast off into the land of former sisters, she was the hardest JA white knighter of them all, right down to “she just needs a lot of love” (if that was about JA, which it probably was). Assuming she’s moved on from the donkey show, does her LinkedIn still showcase her “stint” as COO/exec. producer for the fail that was NS? Time to pull that profile and work on salvaging whatever “career” she’d hoped to have or just keeping her resume OFF the internet and trying to find a jerb… though I’m sure she has by now.

        I think Lasagna was/is similar to one of those who feels they’ve invested way too much of their time/money into something to just let it go and accept the loss. To that end, she could easily have been blindly indignant when anything (read: RBD) threatened that investment, which she hoped would at some point amount to something. Truth hurts, and as there were frequently floating rumors of a little ravioli in the oven, I’m sure at some point the grifted swag and minimal pay (if any at all) wouldn’t exactly have been good enough.

        IDK that she’s still playing warrior for donkey; anyone recent doing something similar is more likely to be a lasagna-in-training who also got tricked by the prethentathon & perthepthon wool that sociopaths find really easy to pull over the eyes of those who don’t think to question and research further.

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

          At one point recently I stumbled upon an old Donk Tweet or blog post in which she made clear Lasagna should not be confused with other Meghans, who were actual friends. Lasagna was just an assistant.

          • Oooh, yet another quarter-turn twist of Donkey’s knife in Lasagna’s back! Maybe the Bravo show Miss Advised will be somewhat entertaining (for us, not the masses) but I tell you what, it’s when Lasagna goes balls-to-the-wall psycho batshit insane on Donkey that I want a front row seat.

            Lasagna really should have timed a tell-all book w/ the airing of Miss Assvice, if she wanted remuneration*.

            *TIL it’s not ‘renumeration’ … you really ought to look more closey at those squiggly red lines, MMBH.

    Reading 50 Shades of Grey in public = embarrassing.

    OT: 50 Shades of Grey related–her chapter recaps are leaving me howling: http://jenniferarmintrout.blogspot.com.au

    Here is an ACTUAL LINE from 50 Shades of Grey. I die. “Argh!” I cry as I feel a weird pinching sensation deep inside me as he rips through my virginity.
    And excerpt from Jennifer’s recap:
    There you have it. At age twenty-one and a lifetime of clumsiness, Ana is still, unbelievably, factory-sealed, and breaking the seal voids the warranty turns her into a pirate. Please note how the author keeps with romance novel tradition by having the hymen situated way up in there. That’s a proud and noble tradition, steeped in total refusal of how the female body works.

    And another: Did anyone watch last week’s episode of Game of Thrones? Every time someone was ordering a whore to beat another whore to death, or forcing a live rat to burrow through a screaming man’s heart.[...]I’m no medieval historian or anything, but I’m pretty sure nothing about the Inquisition was faintly citrus scented. Ana has stumbled into the executive class Inquisition, is what I’m thinking.

    I am working my way through her chapter recaps–they aren’t consistently tagged but worth browsing for. Happy weekend, catpeeps.

    • Miss Assvice says:

      50 shades was originally twilight fan fiction and revised. I will not read it as fan fiction gives me the brayges.

      • So. Blessed. says:

        I have only read what was available as Kindle previews of this trilogy (which is about as much as I could stomach of the first Twilight book) and even I can see blatant parallels. So in the fanfic world you can appropriate entire characters, given you change their names?

        I do not understand fanfic–I have a friend who felt driven to write Harry Potter sex scenes that are rumored to be revered in the scene–this doesn’t surprise me at all, her original fiction is incredible. She refuses to let any of us read it.

        What brings the lols is that, allegedly, someone else adapted THIS 50 trilogy into moar fanfic and EL James got lawyered up, screeching ‘copyright infringement.’ As EL James’ rendition of Jacob the werewolf, husky photographer Jose Rodriguez, says at the start of any conversation, “Dios mio.”

        No, really. And there are characters named Ana and Mia. And a Red Room of Pain. And a D/s contract IN ITS ENTIRETY with all the forever, in perpetuity, harshy-harsh blah one would expect. And lots of breathless pauses about what is going on down…there. Serious. There is a discussion about fisting. Still…down…there.

        In retrospect, it’s probably the printed Draconian contract, tedious invented emails reprinted full-text and product placement that’s whipping A Donkey’s clam juices to a froth on this book.

    • Patricia Grace says:

      I am an author, so read all three of 50 Shades books about a month ago, just to see what the author had done and what all the fuss was about. I am totally totally glad that she is such a huge success + made a pile of money, but the British-isms just got on my nerves.

      “Erm,” “Argh,” “Whilst” (others I can’t think of).

      For the heck of it, emailed the author and she and I had a very nice email exchange (I guess this was before her entire world blew up and the book was released in pb in America)… she said they were going to make it more “American,” but all the Brit phrases really bothered me after a while. Also — I wonder, are the Brits more into S&M? I think it is all those weird prep schools they sent the kids (esp the boys) at, like, the age of six.

    OT, because Donkey’s classy wisdom is only fascinating to a very limited degree: I saw this movie last night
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Intouchables
    and while it’s nowhere near my top ten, I can recommend it. The plot sounds rather lame / corny, but the movie miraculously isn’t. There are some “bray with laughter” funny moments, too. On the other hand, according to the Wikipedia article, Variety thinks it’s racist, which I haven’t noticed, but I guess that as a sad obese jealous hater I can be pretty racist when it comes down to it, too.

    • Thank you for a movie rec that gives nothing away! (I’m not following the wiki link, I’m just going to look on Amazon Prime for the freebie view-on-demand or I’ll queue it on Netflix). Is there a genre that you would pigeonhole this movie into? Is there a bunch of graphic violence? (I’m a wimp, & I detest sci-fi, is why I ask). TIA!

      • Helena (Lots And Lots Of Love And Light And Bach) says:

        Oh no, I don’t think there’s any violence at all. Basically, rich and sophisticate tetraplegic hires a young (and OMG black) ex-felon who is the exact opposite of rich and sophisticate, as his live-in carer. Over time, they become close friends, have lots of fun together, and learn from each other. Told ya it sounds lame…. based on a true story no less.

    • Dr. Gary says:

      I watched the other night and loved it. I laughed. I cried. Highly, highly recommend.

      And I found a place to watch it online for free:

      You just need to sign up for a log in. They email you a password and that’s it. You don’t need to do anything else. It was the only version I could find online with English subtitles (it’s in French). Make sure you select ‘English’ subtitles at the bottom of the screen before you watch, since it gives you a few language selections.

      • Dr. Gary says:

        I’d also read that some people are calling it racist. I didn’t get that at all. Apparently, the French don’t feel that way either. It’s just the Americans.

        • Helena (Lots And Lots Of Love And Light And Bach) says:

          I honestly never heard about anyone seeing anything even remotely racist in it, until I read about the Variety review. It’s quite fascinating, not the first time I’ve noticed this phenomenon. IMO, there’s no doubt that political correctness is MUCH more of a thing in the US than anywhere in Europe, and that can be both good and bad. I realize that real and more or less blatant racism or sexism is much more acceptable in my country (and to varying degrees, in other European countries…. perhaps fig can weigh in?) than in the US, and my American friends have actually helped me recognize that. At the same time, I can’t help thinking that there’s lots of overreacting play here as well. As far as this movie goes, IMO one of the characters just happens to be black, and that’s all there is to it.Then again, I might be a racist.

          My best friend, who is more or less a self-proclaimed commie, has a theory that Americans make everything about race to distract from real CLASS issues, heh.

          Thanks for the servicey link, Dr. Gary! I’ll forward it to people, and I also want to see the movie again. Didn’t you love the scene in the opera? I laughed until I choked.

            My best friend, who is more or less a self-proclaimed commie, has a theory that Americans make everything about race to distract from real CLASS issues, heh.

            Your friend should probably never say that to a US black or Latino or Native communist, unless they enjoy hearing hours of angry rants.

            That said, it is absolutely true that the (white) plutocracy in the US has invested vast sums of money into actively fostering racism (and before that, nativism–i.e., prejudice against newer white immigrants) among poor white people, and has done since the early 19th century, as a way to vent off social unrest before it gets up to their economic level.

            It’s just not the whole story, and many US people who are personally targets of both racism and classism generally have some very clear ideas about how they are different.

        • Albie Quirky says:

          I think that some people in the US have expressed the opinion that they find it odd that the real-life character who was North African was changed to Senegalese for the movie, given that the character starts out as a servant, but I think those are people who don’t have any idea what the socioeconomic statuses of different emigre communities in France are like, and/or that those communities have different histories vis-a-vis employment as household workers than do the corresponding communities in the US.

          Tl; dr: people in the US think it’s icky to cast a black man as a servant, because there was so much of that in our film history, which is ridiculous because this is based on a real-life incident that happened in France, and the only major difference is that the servant-turned-companion was North African, not from Sub-Saharan Africa.

          Tl;tl;dr: Many people are stupid and forget that different countries are different.

She’s not much better than Donks, in some ways worse imho.

      • Sad Rat In Sidewalk says:

        I’ve always gotten the vibe from Xeni that she’s a complete fameball, half her act is just to get attention and be “weird and different,” and that she’s a nasty person in real life. (Look at how she treated her fallout with Violet Blue, who IMHO is an equal fameball annoyance.)
