“A year ago today I packed my pink cowboy hat and my pink cowboy boots to head to Wyoming for @Brit and @DaveMorin’s magical wedding. :-)”
That’s an odd way to mention someone’s 1 year anniversary, no?
What are you saying? That it’s weird to make someone else’s wedding anniversary all about you?
Not if your Julia Allison and it’s ALL ABOUT YOU 24/7.
Funny she doesn’t have any weddings to go to (so far) this summer…. is it because she’s so busy with her Miss Advised press junkets (LOL)?
And if we’re keeping track – Julia is up another 3,000 Twitter fans since last night – that’s 13,000 in 5 days time. So popular!
she has to be buying this somehow doesn’t she? I highly doubt 13 thousand NEW people would willingly follow her… have the other girl’s grown by the same amount? because most people picked up from the miss advised audience would probably just blanket follow all 3
She has absolutely been buying them. Only 2100 like the Miss Advised (ad) page but she’s gone from 26k likes to… 94,191 thousand likes since the show started – she doesn’t even care that she’s so obvious about it – as usual no one questions her.
And her FB page has only jumped by 500 additional subscribers.
She’s been pushing Task Rabbit and Airbnb so I am guessing she needed to pump up her Twitter followers to look like she has some reach.
so are the taskrabbits going to appear on miss advised? is bravo going to come clean about its shill-tastic arrangement with taskrabbit (and AirBnB?)?
My guess is she used the links that they give you to get $10 or whatever when someone you refer joins/spends money. Nothing to do with Bravo. Everything to do with her wanting free stuff without any effort on her part.
@Pink Palatian: Taskrabbit does have a relationship with Bravo, if not with Miss Advised.
Caroline McCarthy @caro Close
@ryanlawler @EvelynRusli @nickbilton @pkafka I speculate Bravo deal with @taskrabbit (annc’d around SXSW) has something to do with the show*.
Absolutely no question, buying. If she wanted it to look like earned engagement she should have kept the caps much much lower.
Buying. Most of them are fake/spam accounts.
Why did Amy link this when it was on/filmed right before the show premiered? No one is giving these turkeys any more press for this show unless a Donkey is arranging for it.
Is that when it aired? Sort of a pointless post, then. Sorry, haters. I just can’t get over how her eyes are gone.
I always love a new post! But yes, this is when they came to LA the day of the show. Or it might have been the day after the show…
I’m interested in what Monday’s ratings will be – I’m predicting last week’s big surge was because people got pulled in by “The Call Me Donkey” but after watching last weeks snorefest, it will go down 20% and back to the .20 in the demo.
ha I read that as “Brave” Stablemates first….
Did I hear correctly that the interviewer referred to Patti Stanger as one of their stablemates? Or was my mind just in the barn?
Also lurve how Emily and Amy both subtly tell Juliar she’s doing it wrong when it comes to dating and being aggressive.
He did call her their “stablemate”. I’m sure he meant in the sense that she also has a show on Bravo, but funny nonetheless.
Oh my god. She posted her unedited draft of the Elle column on her facebook again. What THE FUCK is wrong with her?
Someone save the unedited draft and post for comparison with the edited version. Hilarity might ensue.
Just checked out her FB page. She has 1142 friends… and almost 3000 pictures. I have 365 friends and 150 pictures – about 100 of them pictures of other people who showed up to my OMGWedding.
Priorities, you has them… in an ass backward way. (See what I did there, Donks?)
She’s so much bigger than the other two.
And it’s not like she’s a large person so those two must be super-tiny. And cute!! OMG it’s her worst nightmare!
I was just thinking how hilare-ballz it is that biggo D0nkey, by virtue of insisting to sit where the camera audience (wut?) sees her ‘best’ side, is closest to the camera, making her look even larger than she is compared to the C&T’s furthest from the camera.
Good job, D0nkey, good job!
The big head doesn’t help either.
This show should’ve been called Big Head Fraud and the Spinsters
OT but do any of you catladies get regular gel manicures that last for a long time? I’ve now had about 4 in the past year (from 3 diffrent salons) and none has lasted any longer than a regular manicure. Other than the super-quick drying time I don’t think they’re worth the extra money.
Mine are good for at least 3 weeks, and regular manicures I’m lucky if I last 3 days without chipping. I think it depends where you get it done – I’ve heard that they actually shouldn’t soak your fingers in water prior to the gel manicure because it somehow diminishes the efficacy of the polish. I also find that if I get more than two in a row my fingernails get super dry, but I also leave the polish on way too long (I have a kitten and can’t be counted on to get to the nail salon every three weeks).
tl; dr version: Yes, I think they’re better if you go to a good salon. I save them for special occasions, though.
I’ve had them done twice. Same salon, different products. The first time, I used the Gelish no chip manicure and it didn’t budge for three weeks. I eventually removed it myself because I got bored of the color but it probably would have held up another week or so. It also made my cuticles look awesome!
The second time I did the OPI Axxium specifically for my favorite color, Russian Navy, it looked horrible after about a week. There were chips within two days. So terrible.
I noticed that the Gelish manicure does indeed feel like more for a gel than the OPI system. The Gelish manicure was super flexible and texturizing almost slightly rubbery, which helped a lot with subduing the chipping. The OPI was just really hard and gross.
Important to note that OPI Axxium isn’t the same as Gelish and Shellac. The OPI version of Gelish is OPI Gel Color, and in my experience it works really well.
Thanks for the input. I found that it doesn’t chip but it will start to bubble and peel away at the sides. It’s worked great for me on pedicures though.
Why is Donkey so gigantique?
Because she hoovers crap food and is too lazy to do any exercise.
Even at her thinnest, she would loom over Emily and Amy because they’re just tiny. Look at the scenes where Emily is hanging with her friend Ruby; Ruby’s about 5’7″ and is in great rich-lady yoga shape, but she still looks like the Statue of Liberty next to Emily.
She’s 5’5″ and a US size 8 or so. The other two are very short, very slight of frame, and very slender.
Julie Albertson really doesn’t take up much space in person, though the enormonoggin is always surprising.
Especially surprising because we know there’s so very little inside it.
Except the scheme juice-secreting glands and the manhunting weasel sanctuaries, I suppose.
Not to mention ButtPrint Cleanse farts waiting to escape
She’s 5’3″ and a few years ago, when thinner, she had trouble squeezing into a size 8 pair of jeans, as documented on video.
OT, but I was doing some digging around after hearing that the Gorga (from RHoNJ) house was a construction loan that they were never supposed to live in. So it was surprising that their shore house is on the market: http://www.realtor.com/realestateandhomes-detail/11-Mermaid-Rd_Toms-River_NJ_08753_M56105-50014?ex=MONJ_21206109
Their shore house is listed as collateral for their Montville house on the paperwork filed with Mornmouth County. (The Ocean County paperwork reflects this, too. Ocean County is where the Toms River house is.) I’ll have to look into this a little more, but I’m thinking that *legally speaking* the Gorga’s can’t sell that house without getting consent from the lenders on the Montville house. The other thing is, they have another house in either Bergen or Morris county and I think that’s the one that’s actually in the RHNJ show? The newly built house that looks like a knock-off of the Giudice house in Franklin Lakes… need to do more snooping.
Another way to explain what’s going on with the Gorga’s is that, most likely, they have 3 houses tied together on the same mortgage, all as collateral for the mortgage as a whole. And while this is OK, it implies an obligation to keep all 3 properties until the mortgage is paid off or renogotiated. You can’t just sell one of the houses, in this case the shore house, and use the money for whatever you want. And the lender must be made aware.
It’s funny how essentially all of Bravo’s reality shows* are the most stupendous grifters and charlatans.
* by reality shows, I mean the dating shows, real estate shows, and Housewives series, as opposed to the cooking shows, modeling shows, or comedy
OK sorry that came out like word vommit. I also forgot that the Giudice house is in Towaco, not Franklin Lakes. My point stands, though, that Bravo is profiting from a bunch of grifters. Julia fits right in, although far less (materially) successful.
JFA’ing myself to say I made another mistake… I somehow missed that they’re seemingly trying to sell all their properties. The Montville one is on the market, too: http://www.realtor.com/blogs/2012/05/08/real-housewives-of-new-jersey-star-melissa-gorga-lists-her-massive-mansion-photos/
I am fascinated by this. How do these people sleep or not die from chronic anxiety? Is this why they’re always getting hammered?
Nah. They believe they’re smarter than the rest of us and will be able to keep gaming the system forever. My ex was like that, and probably still is. He was constantly pushing the limits of federal securities laws and even after nearly going to prison, he still pulled the same old shit and was finally banned from the entire industry. He could’ve done well legitimately, but he gets a high from seeing how far he can go before self-destructing…but can’t always pull back in time.
Nearly 3 yrs with him gave me a prism through which I see all scammers, grifters, con artists, and the like.
The Donkey dissection we do here has helped me develop a sense for grifters. I kind of love when I spot a grifter and avoid them, even though I know it means they just end up hurting someone else later.
QN, I dated a sociopath like that. His lawyers were somehow able to get the SEC off his case after several years of investigations. This guy was a millionaire many times over and got the biggest thrill from, say, sneaking into a conference without paying (I was mortified when he did this at Le Web when I was with him – after he told me he’d bought tickets for us both). But he was also chugging uppers and downers to deal with the anxiety of the chaos he thrived on. You could not pay me enough to live like that. These people are the biggest losers on the planet.
Oh yes! They are wealthy, but still cheap bastards. This one was on and off various drugs, but was a chainsmoker. Set his office on fire one day. Literally. Guess who put it out.
QN, it is really odd. My sociopath also was a chain smoker, and would proudly flout the law by smoking in his office because “I’m the founder and CEO” – and because no rules EVER applied to him (sound like Donk?). He bragged about never having a driver’s license until he moved to the US at age 37 – he’d driven his rich father’s cars from age 14 and never bothered to get a license in Europe. He has had literally dozens of court appearances for extreme speeding and parking wherever the fuck he wants. His lawyers always get his license back, and he drives without one between court dates. When Donk posted about wanting to do things that are forbidden, like a toddler, I thought it really betrayed her lack of self-awareness. Her “therapist” sucks if he/she hasn’t already diagnosed NPD and sociopathy.
If not for the born in another country thing, I’d think we were with the same guy. I hate to think there are more like him out there!
Because they’re connected.
Being connected in New Jersey means they can pretty much do whatever they want.
It goes all the way to Christie, I’m sure of it. It’s all the construction
Please explain? Do you mean mob ties?
Next opportunity with cake, plant your breast and face in it..the world will thank you
Her eyes or lack thereof are scaring me. WTF is she doing?
I wonder if she’s letting Dr. Bobby put some clinical trial shit in her face. I mean, oh, my Greg, it is beyond bloated corpse bloated at this point.
I wonder what she is telling her family? Is that why she floated the bulimia story – maybe that’s what she tells them – BUT – she must think she looks better or why do it??? And that’s when I become convinced she is mentally ill.
I think she’s getting filler injected into her cheeks (to try for that high cheekbone look, to give her face definition and make it look thinner and chiseled) by a cheap injector, and she’s put on weight. Just look at the confessionals from Miss Advised, which I assume were filmed after the main show was done. She’s not fat, but definitely chubbed out there.
Interesting how every press tie-in includes the misinformation that Donk writes for Elle magazine. She always looks so happy to have gotten away with that lie again. Robin and Peter, I’m surprised your church doesn’t burst into flames when you pull your liar offspring inside.
Watch that part again and imagine that she’s smelling her own fart and she really really likes it.
It just proves how little due diligence these media outlets do before letting her bray.
So, I guess A Donkey has descended like a vulture to pick through GRANDMOTHER’s things, no doubt scavenging like a maniac. Look for Jules to be wearing a lot of 80′s Chanel, or asking for help selling them on eBay. And I don’t know why it irks me so, the way she always captitalizes My Grandmother; she’s just so, so pretentious.
1h Julia Allison @JuliaAllison
I went over to my Grandmother’s home with my father to go through her clothing today. Heartbreaking. I miss her so much.
I suppose they’ve read the will by now, but the fan-fiction in my mind has some sort of zinger. “I leave my granddaughter Julia nothing until she stops being such a useless layabout and finds a proper, financialy stable white man to settle down with. I really mean the white part.” For all we know, that may have actually happened. Her dreams of being an “angel” investor sort of evaporated quickly, no?
“I leave my granddaughter Julia nothing until she stops being such a useless layabout and finds a proper, financialy stable white man to settle down with. I really mean the white part.”
You have slain me. I am slain now.
The capping of the G in grandmother — a new conceit, she didn’t used to do that — drives me fucking mental. It’s not like she called her “Grandmother.” She’s put enough video out there/blogged/tweeted where she’s calling her just plain Grandma or Gran or something. So what the fuck? She is such a pretentious tool about the stupidest shit.
She’s trying to come off as old money. Or at least her perthepthun of old money.
I know. Such a tool.
Here’s a column in which she refers to her as “Gram.”
And may I just add that the quotes from “Gram” in that piece are so obviously fucking made up? Jesus, she’s a weasel.
It’s incorrect anyway, no?
I called my grandmother on the phone and said, “Hello, Grandmother.”
Yes, that is correct usage. Which Serious Print Journalist Lady Julie Albertson apparently does not know, despite her “hundreds” of pieces in print.
What an ineffable twit.
Somebody needs to grab the photos from FB from what I presume was the Deballing. (I on my phone.) Donkey, for once, comes close to getting it right. Decent dress in a nice color, understated make-up and hair. Then she ruins it with white accessories, including everyone’s favorite hooker clompers.
She had someone else do her makeup, apparently! Perhaps hair also. She can look OK if someone else (who doesn’t hate her) is styling her, I think.
We talked about the demented Minnie Pearl-esque matchy matchy accessories a coupla posts back.
I thought she looked great, minus the white hooves. I actually really liked the white belt, just not with those godforsaken white shoes that refuse to die.
O/T Hey Catladies, can we get a Cup/Cake, Pancakes, Chocolate licking retospective post soon?
Julie’s new fans will LOVE IT!
Just watched the interview …
When sitting, a LADY crosses her legs at the ankle, not the knee, n’est pas ?
She’s not a lady. She’s feral woman.
You know, all three women look amazing compared to the host of that show. At least Donk doesn’t have multiple wobbly chins; and while her hair is bad, it ain’t in the same ball park of bad as the presenter’s. It’s enough to put a donkey off its hay. When they talk, Donk doesnt come of that badly – she sounds pretty normal compared to the other two women and the host.
I dunno. I’m thinking these group TV appearances might do Julia some favors (except her hair color is really super weird – not sure what she’s thinking there).
