In Response To The @Dumbasses: Full Transcript of RBD Interview With New York Observer

 

I’m pulling a Donkey here and publishing the complete, UNEDITED!! interview with the New York Observer before Miss Advised aired, in early June. This might help explain to the @stupidwomen what this blog is all about. You’re welcome, newbies!

NYO: I’ll start by asking whether you think Julia is capable of turning over a new leaf. Not having seen Miss Advised yet, do you think she do anything to make the viewing public like her? Could she do anything on- or off-air to make you like her — or, at least, not despise her?

RBD: We’d like to hope she could turn over a new leaf. But I honestly don’t think that’s possible without a lot of therapy and a willingness to account for her behavior, past and present, including many of the nasty things she’s done and said to supposed friends, exes, and the new partners of exes.

I listened in on that conference call the other day — a colleague was on it officially and piped me in — and I thought she sounded the most likable of the three. But I also heard her say she’s a changed person, and that filming the show was like an extended therapy session. But towards the end of filming, she did something pretty nasty to Randi Zuckerberg and her husband, resulting in the termination of that friendship/strategic partnership (the latest of many friendships/relationships to end due to JA’s actions, no one else’s). Just a week or so ago, after the show had finished filming, she took to Twitter to humiliate a guy she’d dated twice, years ago, and included some of his peers in the Tweets. So is she truly a changed person? We have seen her say she’s been “changed” by everything from visits to an ashram to Burning Man and a John Mayer concert, so we have our doubts.

But we actually don’t hate the poor, broken woman (she herself told us she was ‘broken’ not too long ago, after she attempted to leak to us a tidbit about her dating life and we traced the IP address to her neighborhood in Marina del Ray that matched the one on the emails she sent us under her own name). We just follow her online reality show pretty closely and really look forward to the episode where she does, in fact, get some serious, extensive, long-term therapy and maybe goes offline for a long time not just to get better, but to spare those in her circle the endless exposure, privacy violations and humiliations that she cavalierly doles out to them.

That, to me, would be a reality show worth watching — seeing JA get the true help she so desperately needs, facing her demons, and getting better. We’d cheer for her if she did that.

NYO: Why does it matter to you, though, if Julia humiliates Randi Zuckerberg? There are so many deplorable behaviors on Twitter — why have a site singling out Julia? Help me understand why she’s been such a long-term interest.

RBD: I wouldn’t say it matters to us in terms of having a personal stake in Randi Zuckerberg, although some of our commenters and tipsters do. It only matters, really, because JA has been staging an online reality show for years. She has famously solicited Facebook fans and friends and Twitter followers. She has directed people to her blog and her writing. Last summer, she directed all her 20,000-plus Twitter followers to the 100s of fairly racy photos she took of herself at Burning Man, and opened up her FB page completely so the public could see them. So she has pursued an online audience very aggressively for many years, and here we are — the audience.

And one of the things she really likes to do for her audience is to present herself as having very meaningful, close, enviable relationships with people she believes are celebrities. Jack McCain and Randi Zuckerberg are two of the most recent examples. So when you see this relentless output of photos and Tweets and blog posts about how meaningful the relationships are, how close and special she is to these people, and then you learn what she’s done to them offline, either because she screws up the way she did with Gawker and Randi Zuckerberg, or because her former friends and associates tip us or others off in rage or disbelief because they cannot believe how inauthentic the online posturing is — then yeah, we find that pretty interesting. As for others doing similarly deplorable things — point us to them. We are pretty plugged in and follow various “Internet celebrities,” but I’ve never encountered anyone in her league. Sending out the news release about her breakup from the son of a powerful, high-profile U.S. senator and how she had moved out of the “the home they shared in Coronado?” It was his mother’s condo, they never lived together, they spent all of two or three weeks, all told, under the same roof, and he did not consider it a serious relationship. That takes some balls (his family was NOT amused), and that’s why she’s so entertaining and enthralling. So that explains the prolonged interest, too, I guess — she keeps on producing new episodes in her online reality show, and we, the audience she so aggressively courted, keep watching.

NYO: Do you — and I’m not tipping my hand as to my opinion here, but rather playing devil’s advocate — take into account that she’s a real person, with feelings? Oftentimes the content of the site deals not with her online antics but with her body or her family. That would seem to be separate from soliciting attention for her celebrity fans. Simply because one “directs people to her blog” does not mean ad hominem attacks are fair game — or does it?

Further, why does it matter to you, personally — not broadly looking at your network of tipsters, but you. What does Julia represent to you? And what will be punishment enough for her sins?

RBD:  If her feelings are so fragile and she is so hurt by our existence, why does she tip us off about the identities of who she’s dating? She’s done it three times now, most recently a month or so ago.

I am not arguing that she doesn’t have feelings, I am sure she does. But she has been using her looks to try to get attention for herself for years. The condom dress, the Gawker lingerie shoot, the endless photo shoots that she labels with names like “Good Girl Gone Bad!” etc etc. I actually believe she’s a good-looking woman, not in any way overweight, and I personally don’t like it when our commenters go there. But if you’re constantly photographed thrusting your hooters at the world, and you stage pointless photo shoots in ball gowns or tutus simply for your Facebook page that you open up for the public — photos that are never published anywhere else — then I think you are willfully/willingly putting your appearance in the line of fire. Did the world need to see her bare ass at Burning Man? She thought it did. And then she was hurt because people said she had a fat ass, or whatever they said? My response to that is: “Why would you publish that photo in the first place for thousands of strangers to see?”

She is not a victim in this regard. She puts all of it out there.

And if you place such a premium on female beauty, and talk about women being “gorgeous” and “tiny and cute” in the same way that you’d mention an actual accomplishment, and then you start injecting shit into your face long before you turn 30 to the extent that you drastically alter how you look — you can’t really stay online, and continue to be pumping it out there, and not expect people to notice, right? She has held herself up as a great beauty — that’s what all the photo shoots are about. And lately, she’s looking very different than she looked even two years ago. Is it so baffling that the less kind among her pursued followers might experience some schadenfreude in that regard? Especially when she’s said more than once that women have an expiration date, and are pretty much past it at 30?

I find her interesting, personally, because I think she provides a very extreme, contorted glimpse of a generation that’s gone right off the rails in terms of narcissism, seeking fame for no reason, the reality show/Facebook generation that wants to put everything out there and expects to be adored and envied for it. We all have those people in our Facebook feed — she’s the Incredible Hulk version of that person. No matter how many times she gets burned by it, she seems pathologically unable to stop herself, in particular when it comes to Tweeting the shit out of every new relationship she enters into. She keeps getting hurt by it, and yet she keeps doing it. And I do find that really fascinating. I don’t want punishment for her at all, other than hoping she one day genuinely makes amends to the people she’s hurt. Far from punishment, I hope she gets some serious help, because she won’t find what she’s looking for — marriage, kids, happily ever after — until she does.

NYO:  Turning the conversation to you, Jacy — when did you start the site? When did you become interested in Julia? Can you give me an idea of your readership and the sort of people who send in tips? What industry do you work in?

RBD: I didn’t start the site. I volunteered to help out, then my co-blogger (who had started the blog, and got shut down on Tumblr) departed, and then a few more of us came aboard. (Now there are three of us.) This would have been early 2009, when she started NonSociety, the collection of brightly colored Tumblrs she tried to pass off as a “tech startup.” There are real-life connections for some of us, including some connections to JA’s circle of associates.

Prior to that, we were occasional Gawker readers, never really commenters there, but Gawker introduced us to the Jakob and Julia blog. I knew people who knew her, and I’ve been watching her online reality show ever since. When she went onto Gawker and outed his alleged mental health issues (I think in early 2008?), then I knew everything I was hearing about her via her social circle was correct — she was unhinged. She sort of completely went off the rails because some dude dumped her, and one she felt was beneath her physically. I actually believe this was her psychic wound moment, the thing that narcissists never get past. Because the stuff she did behind the scenes on that front, in terms of the ways she tried to smear him to his closest friends and family members, to drive wedges between him and the people he loved the most in the world — she was off her nut. And I am not sure she ever really recovered.

By the end of 2008, the Baugher blogger decided not to blog much about her anymore, we decided to step in. Largely because we found her so entertaining, we knew there was an audience for her antics, and we knew she was going to provide us with a steady stream of online reality show episodes to parse, and that therefore it really wouldn’t require much work at all — that shit would write itself. And it has. The Jack McCain months — you couldn’t have made that stuff up.

Our readership — I don’t know why she’s so uptight about it, because relatively speaking, it’s small. I am guessing maybe 500 regulars, at the very most?

But this she should worry about: The people who send tips have included friends, former boyfriends, current girlfriends of former boyfriends, ex-girlfriends of former boyfriends, former “business partners,” friends and family members of former “business partners,” family members of former boyfriends, friends of new dudes she’s got in her cross-hairs, people in her agent’s office, her “dermatologist’s” office, disgruntled interns, people at Red Eye, at Star, at Time Out New York, people at Bravo, old family friends, onetime high-school classmates, and someone I actually suspected was a family member because of the details provided about a holiday meltdown.

That’s kind of telling, don’t you think?

My feeling is these people have tried everything to get her to either leave them alone or get some help, and in desperation, when she steadfastly refuses to hear their pleas, they turn to us. Which is why we are actually careful about what we go with. I won’t go with anything I feel was sent in a rage, not to protect her so much, but to protect the person who sent it from her lifelong wrath.

  1. Grammarian says:

    Let me be the first to thank you

  2. SchadenfreudianSlip says:

    I’ll once again point out the contrast between how well spoken and well written Jacy is on a day-to- day basis taking little to no time to prepare as compared to what the Donkey writes and sounds like for her big published assignments.

    This difference has always been so obvious and so startling and it hammers home the question of how any publisher or editor of any online or print publication could give her a job doing anything related in any way to the written word.

    • Jacy writes with such ease, I love reading her posts.

      Great interview! I’m so happy that I found this site. It’s therapeutic for me.

    • Blinking.S.O.S.at.the.Camera says:

      Nicely done, Jacy. Thanks on behalf of your kittehs.

    • Donkarena says:

      So true…..and remember the guy that she took horseback riding? Forgot his name, but I’ll never forget them sitting there and he said “so, you’re a blogger?” and she said “I prefer the term journalist….most of my work is in print”…..IT IS TO LAUGH….

      • That irked the hell out of me, and it inspired me to examine her fame-whorey nature. Not only is what she said completely untrue, but she is taking a big shit on bloggers and all that they do, and watering down what it means to actually be a journalist. She is not a journalist, she occasionally writes columns and posts kissy-face pictures of herself on Tumblr and contemplates buying canopy beds on her blog. I can think of hundreds of bloggers who can write ellipses around this bish.

        • RollsRoyceRevenge says:

          Bloggers? I can think of at least that many who simply post here.

          • Yes, the comments section of this site is 100x better than anything a Donkey could muster up.

            Her comment about “bloggers” really pissed me off, though. She totally shat all over and tried to distance herself from that title, when she is actually less than a blogger.

        • EyeRoller says:

          Ratchet I think you should suggest your comment below as the title of her new book:

          Julia Allison: Less Than A Blogger.

      • Queen Neferteeri says:

        Dumb Donkey – but we already knew that, didn’t we? After all these years (and passing her expiration date), she still doesn’t know that journalism is about what someone does, not the medium in which the work appears. What does Dumbo call the reporters who work on/in TV? Or radio?

        She’s managed to get her dreck in print, but she’s never actually done any journalism.

        Donkey has the curiosity and inquisitiveness of one of Lilly’s [sic] turds left on someone’s floor.

    • Barking Mad, Intel Advisor says:

      Great work, Jacy and a good time to post it.

  3. LEFOOLIEH says:

    I love this interview so haaaard. Repost from last thread – http://www.flickr.com/photos/digiulio/4685395926/

  4. Queen Neferteeri says:

    That, to me, would be a reality show worth watching — seeing JA get the true help she so desperately needs, facing her demons, and getting better. We’d cheer for her if she did that.

    Many good points you make, but I can’t agree with this one. I’m not rooting for her to have an epiphany, get therapy, and then get the wedding and life she craves. I don’t wish bad for her, but I can’t honestly say that I hope things work out well for her either.

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

      I hear you, but imagine how much fun it would be to watch an “intervention” type show with this loon since she is absolutely so entrenched in believing she does very little wrong, when, as we know, she does almost everything wrong. As mentioned previously, she won’t even acknowledge her two biggest issues: pathological lying and a sick need to bray and boast the shit out of all her new relationships.

      It would be hilarious and rivetting.

      • Grammarian says:

        Wrong? The only mistake is not loving herself enough.

      • Queen Neferteeri says:

        Oh it totally would be. But I can’t sign on with those who want her to get help, stop being an asshole, and get everything her little black heart desires.

      • Donkarena says:

        Oh, I’d watch THAT show….extra large bag of cheetos at the ready…

      • RollsRoyceRevenge says:

        Hmmmm. I think she simply doesn’t annoy me enough to the extent that I actively wish she never eases her head out of her ass. But I freely admit if I had more personal interaction with her I might think differently.

        Maybe I don’t have the same response some do because many of the people she has behaved the most vilely to are people who, to me, anyway, seem pretty vile themselves. (What’s-Her-Teef? Yeah, cry me a river, $i$ter. Loren Feldman? Nick Denton? It is to barf. And Mr. Mohawk Cock-Flash needs a swift kick in the nuts IMO).

        However, I know I have a small list of people upon whose heads a continual rain of fire, brimstone and tarantula shit is my private and eternal wish, so I can’t fault anyone for thinking this of her for their own reasons.

        As I see it at this point: if she gets better, good for her; if she doesn’t – well, it’s not for lack of useful and amusing edification provided with ample doses of wit, cheeto dust and cat hair.

    • How Brayella Got Her Hoove Back says:

      ‘ I’m not rooting for her to have an epiphany, get therapy, and then get the wedding and life she craves. I don’t wish bad for her, but I can’t honestly say that I hope things work out well for her either.’

      My sentiments exactly.

      D0nkey opts to make a public spectacle of herself & I opt to be an assembled spectator — beyond that, not being on a crusade to save the ALL THE GIRLS, any interest I have in hoping for someone to get the mental health care they so desperately need is reserved for loved ones of mine &/or those of my friends.

      It’s called: TAKING CARE OF YOUR OWN, which the Baugher’s really ought to take a whack at it. Or not, but the backlash they themselves incur as a result of sitting idly by is by no means misplaced collateral damage, & that’s their cross to bear.

    • JFA says:

      I don’t think she deserves anything good in life after the way she acts/treats people. I thinks she’s a lazy, entitled, sociopathic terrible person. So, I could give a shit if she lives happily ever after. I don’t wish on her cancer or anything, but I certainly don’t give a shit if she stays miserable forever. She’s not a good person. And she’s incapable of change, so I have no hopes for her or desire to see her “pull through” or whatever. She never will. She is not a person with real feelings.

      • Queen Neferteeri says:

        I don’t wish on her cancer or anything, but I certainly don’t give a shit if she stays miserable forever. She’s not a good person.

        Exactly! A long time ago, I thought she was a mostly harmless, vapid twit. But then I watched the live Gawker chat in which she made sure to “blurt out” that “[redacted] is bipolar and doesn’t take his meds.” (I think she also took a shot at his personal hygiene, which is a case of the pot calling the kettle smelly.) Then I watched her try to get out of it by claiming she was goaded into it — as if she had no control over what she says when asked. Oh, and she’d pulled the same “oopsie!” a day or so earlier, in a smaller forum (maybe a blog?).

        That was the first time I realized that she’s a bad person.

        • JFA says:

          No one but a sociopath emails the fiance of a clearly happy ex who has basically told you not to stalk him anymore, just to let the fiance know that they were boning when the ex and the fiance started dating years before. She’s a disgusting vile human being. Funny how she never explained that one!

    • LetItExplode says:

      I want her to get better simply so she’ll stop wreaking havoc on others.

      • Blowjobs by Bravo says:

        She is not capable of getting better because sociopaths cannot get better only better at hurting others.

  5. anon says:

    Sorry if this has been posted before, but for those who say Goat Soap looks like Kevin Dillon, did you see this photo of him from the Movember Gala? It’s posted on his google plus. Also adds plenty more to the gay argument…

      I know I am in the minority here, but I find that hot. Him hot. **ducks head**

      To be honest, I like my men with a little gay.

      • Malformed Face says:

        Look at the pic she just posted on her FB page. He’s got a bit of a case of the Damn, Damn Face. From far away, you’re like “Damn!” (hot) but close-up? “Oh, damn….” (fug-tastic).

        Yes, I am 14.

        • Queen Neferteeri says:

          Ha! We’re both in the same middle school homeroom!

        • Scooby Don't says:

          We used to call them LDLs – Long Distance Lookers.
          I too am 14. And jealous.

        • Tremendous Liar; Donkey Repugnant (almost a transitive-property) says:

          I’ve always thought the perjorative “Monet” is pretty hilarious. Clearly 14 here, too.

        • JFA says:

          He’s got one of those faces that would look cute maybe (not my type at all but for some ppl I can see it) on a dating profile, and then they show up, start moving their mouth, and everything goes wrong. Also, agree with whoemver said yesterday he has zero sex appeal.

        • GimmeaWackjob says:

          That gummy smile is always a turnoff to me.

      • RollsRoyceRevenge says:

        I think he’s cute. I am actually intrigued by the fact that he looks so different in various pictures.

        • EyeRoller says:

          I also have no problems with his physical appearance, he’s a decent lookin’ guy who’s clearly hiding a gay vhs jackoff collection in the attic , and he can’t go online because he knows a donkey will snatch that laptop when he goes beddy bye and search his online site search history.

          Too nitwitted enough to not know what lay ahead for him.
          Sorry Soapy, the clarity of hindsight won’t help you when this one’s done. You’re down for the count and you’ve barely begun. Oh, how you’ve barely begun.

          • RollsRoyceRevenge says:

            You’re a poet! And you don’t even know it!

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

            Another classic comment. In my imagination, you are George Clooney, logging on from Lake Como.

          • Malformed Face says:

            A+++++

            I wish I remember who said this fav comment of mine: “He wishes he pre-Googled instead of post-Googled.”

    • iblow4shoes says:

      It says on his Google+ page that he “Attended California Polytechnic State University”. Does that mean he didn’t graduate? How does this jive with JAB’s list? Interesting.

      • Effing Ineffably Un-Effable says:

        Special dispensation has been granted so that he meets 90+% of Julia’s list. In actuality it’s probably much lower, but this allows Julia the excuse of saying “I ignored my standards and I was unhappy” when it’s over. Cue an addition of 7 more items to the list, and then wallet-chasing resumes.

      • JFA says:

        Wondering if we’ll see her wearing THAT tote bag any time soon. Somehow doubting it.

      • Albie Quirky says:

        I have “attended” on some of my social media, and I graduated.

    • GimmeaWackjob says:

      He looks like a humongous douche here. I can’t even.

    • I think it’s the colors he’s wearing here, but when I quickly scroll up through the comments this photo looks to me like a zombie. I had to do a double take.

    • Queen Neferteeri says:

      70s gay porn

  6. Malformed Face says:

    Donkey is so PSYCHO! Posted a pic of her and Codename Goat Soap at 4:00am on Facebook and even though the pic is a close up, she jams her right hoof in, displaying a ring on her engagement finger. This guy has to be straight up as nutty as a Donkey to wake-up, everyday, tagged in photos, and NOT be running scared.

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

      Wrong hand. But she’s warming up, for sure.

    • Pearipathetic donkey says:

      Isn’t funny how her no pictures it’s too soon policy turned into posting tons of photos in th past few days. These photos must be especially important since she seems to be posting with urgency at all hours of the night/early morning.

      • Malformed Face says:

        At 4am!!! When she was allegedly enjoying a sleep over at Taryn Southern’s. What a nut job.

      • JFA says:

        He totally shut her down on the pictures…she stamped her hooves and he relented and the beast was released. Knew that was coming. Keep pushign him, honey. Men love that.

      • Albie Quirky says:

        WHO DOES THAT?

        I have never posted a picture of my huscat on my Facebook. Sometimes friends post pictures of us together from a party or whatever. Of course she couldn’t wait until that happened because nobody likes her.

        For that matter, I have also never posted a picture of myself except for my user photo. But that is Julie’s hobby.

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

          Her full-time job, seriously, is Tweeting and Facebooking. That’s ALL SHE DOES.

          • iblow4shoes says:

            Don’t forget Googling herself. Surely that takes a few hours a day.

          • Queen Neferteeri says:

            And reading here!

          • JFA says:

            Can you just imagine how many HOURS A DAY she spends writing back to all her “fans” on FB and email? Seriously, I guarantee she spends hours a day doing that. The few times I emailed her through the years (and not for a long while) to tell her she was vile, she writes back IMMEDIATELY.

        • KS says:

          Hobby? She is a professional “Facebook Profile Picture Consultant” (remember that?)

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

            OMG I forgot about that. What an important profession.

          • How Brayella Got Her Hoove Back says:

            Someone PLEASE screenshot where she said that & MAKE Jimmy Wales add it to D0nkey’s wiki page!

    • EyeRoller says:

      I like to think of him as sadly naive rather than blatantly stoopid. He doesn’t look like he’s ever been fooled by a donkey of this calibre. Oh, the tails he will have to tell once this things wraps itself up in the normal fashion. Or else, he’s the type who needs a donkey in their life for good, hiding inspirational notes inside his tuna melts telling him he’s “More man now than he ever was without her” and to “Have a great day Mr. Man!”

      Good luck to Mr. Goat Soapz.

      • And while he’s wishing he had a sandwich he could actually sink his teeth into, a real MAN’s sandwich, he’s nibbling on baloney and wonderbread formed into the shapes of hearts and stars with cookie cutters.

      • 11th Wang says:

        I think he probably thinks she’s his ticket and she thinks he’s her ticket. As soon as fronting is no longer an option, one of them will realize that the other is actually a broke nobody and flee. They’re doomed.

        • GimmeaWackjob says:

          I can see him thinking she’ll hook him up with the high-rolling tech dude BFFs of hers whose names she’s dropping every five minutes. Networking, yo, with pussy on the side. He can put up with that for a few months.

        • EyeRoller says:

          Yes. I thought the same thing.

  7. iblow4shoes says:

    I would like to see her totally hit bottom before she gets her much needed help.

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

      That could happen when SprayTan Goat Soap gets wise and flees.

        Did I miss where the Goat Soap reference comes from?

        • Malformed Face says:

          He went to a Meetup type event where he made soap and waxed prolific on it, then mentioned the next time, he hoped they could expand their soap making horizons by working with Goat Milk…

  8. DSM-V: JFA Edition says:

    Jacy, this was an incredible read. I absolutely love jp’s style and how his frustration and anger come through sometimes in his writing. But the coolness and wit that eases out of you in your writing is amazing to read. I would love to have insight into the reporter’s reactions as they opened your replies to read. They probably entered the process thinking one thing about who would run such a site, and I’d love to know if they were able to accommodate a new perspective as they read your replies, which I’m sure didn’t fit their current narrative. Bravo.

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

      He is now my lover. At least that’s what I call him. He’s not as big a lover as my lover JP lover, but he is one of my lovers, whether he wants to be my lover or not. Hi lover! Love you! But not as much as my other, No. 1 lover!

      • EyeRoller says:

        *blushing*

        I will continue my work towards “entering rapidly”. And like you Jacy, I also picture me as a Clooney lookalike (minus 13 years) serving as Lake Cuomo’s finely tanned mascot resident. However, I’m really squatted near a manmade water pit owned by the state power company just below the top of the Georgia line.

  9. Wonkeye says:

    She’s been “dating” this guy for a couple months and all her grifter friends are fawning over her like she’s accomplished some great feat. I feel like a relationship is like a pregnancy—you don’t go blasting it all over the place (well, ever if you have a brain) until it’s been a few months and you know it’s not going to spontaneously abort. But even then, the congratulations seem crazy. But then you’d have to be off to hang out with the donks, so what am I even talking about. . . .

    • Malformed Face says:

      Also, why should anyone get invested if she was “very, very serious” with a Jelly Donut, only for it to implode after 3 months? Which is the same amount of time she’s been with this guy?

      • Donkarena says:

        Exactly…and after ALL THAT TIME, “zillions of texts, weekends at each others’ places”, she STILL inexplicably said “I COULD fall for this guy”…..what a joke. A transparent attempt to cover that she thought she had one cornered fair and square. (even with barely any affection shown from this guy — her hyperventilating at his surprise visit was so over the top, he told her to calm down. She was embarrassing herself AND him.) She was head over heels. They weren’t constantly dating and texting for 3 months — she stretched an anemic dating history (if you could call their encounters “dates”) to look better than it was, to justify how hard she blubbered for this guy that didn’t show any more than surface feelings for her (and the cameras). She is DESPERATE for male attention and falls for any guy she finds attractive and asks her out for a 2nd date. She took JellyD’s surprise visit as a huge sign that he really liked her. It’s no surprise that she grabs the next guy as quickly as she can to make that debacle fade in comparison.

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

      People are congratulating her and fawning over her as though she’s just announced a big job, a huge promotion, a pregnancy after trying for several years, an engagement. People: She managed to get a dude to go out with her beyond a few dates, and now she’s apparently going to blow it like she does every other “relationship.” That’s it. Also — probably not a healthy place for her to be right now given the sheer, frantic desperation and insanity she displayed on Miss Advised. In fact, probably a gigantic step backwards in terms of her getting well.

      Perspective!

      • EyeRoller says:

        How can the paranoia not kill her, wondering whether everyone/anyone you ever meet/fuck/love has/is/will secretly find this blog?

        • sausage curls/fingers says:

          I can’t say I blame her for being so cuckoo because I know I’d be crazy knowing that so many of my close colleagues and friends read and send in tips to this site.

    • JFA says:

      I honestly have almost no friends on FB who would act like this after 3 months. And I am friends with a bunch of complete morons who went to my thoroughly shitty HS, among others. She has no idea what an ass out of herself she is making. I’ve been in a serious relationship that moved super fast for a bit longer, and I’ve posted a grand total of two pics of us together on FB, and even THAT was petrifying. Holy Christ. She’s insufferable.

      • Donkarena says:

        I’d approach my friend with the best and kindest intentions and say “Are you sure it’s a good idea to shout it out like this on FB? Maybe give it some time in case things don’t unfold like you want?”….I’d be very alarmed if a friend blabbed her new “love” like this. I, in fact, HAVE done this, but it was years before Facebook. This friend just latched on to anyone who looked twice at her — old rejection issues from when her father walked out on the family when she was 4 years old. She desperately grabs any guy so that she won’t look alone and rejected by men.

        • JFA says:

          It’s insane. She is 31 years old, she really doesn’t understand that one NEVER knows if a relationship is going to last, let alone after 3 months? And just plastering him everywhere already? I can’t.

  10. Myfirsttime says:

    Long time reader, first time commenter. My best friend and I have been reading this site forever (she knew JA in real life), and I’m surprised that there are only 500 regular readers. I thought the number would be much higher. Don’t you keep track of the page views? How many visitors do you get each month? I bet lots of us read daily but don’t comment. I’m always pleasantly surprised when other cat ladiez come forward – like the hilarious Amelia at The Frisky.

    • JFA says:

      I believe the interview said “regulars?” I took that to mean people who comment regularly. I’m SURE it’s more than 500 readers on a given day, but I’m guessing.

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

      Yeah, math is hard. We get lots and lots of page views a day, but I am guessing most regulars check the comments several times a day, so that’s not a meaningful number. But yes, I think there’s possibly, at the most, 500 regulars who read a lot and comment a lot.

      I mean, let’s be real, she’s pretty much a nobody unless you happened to be in the right place at the right time and were watching when she started up her online reality show.

      • Blinking.SOS.at.the.Camera says:

        Yet every.single.post on this site gets 10x-100x the response (not exaggerating) of anything Miss Albertson has ever posted, another reason why the “you’re so obviously jealous” arguments make me laff.

        This attention could all have been JABa’s alone but she refused to allow open commenting on her own site until it was way too late (and then it was moderated, and even that weak effort didn’t take place until after this massive misstep on her part was pointed out to her here, on this site … dance donkey dance). So she blew yet another opportunity to develop her so-called brand in a meaningful way versus her usual fake it or break it modus operandi. As someone mentioned before, your personal opinion of Perez Hilton aside, he has left his comments open from the beginning, the bad with the good. He has not hypocritically called foul on the people who don’t idolize him. And who’s the millionaire now?

        Whenever lively dialogue happens around madam’s online output, it happens, in the main, here.

        Jealous? Yes, I believe she probably is.

          Yeah, but Perez Hilton is still an abhorrent human being.

          • Queen Neferteeri says:

            The main reason Donkey will never be the rich and famous celebrity she craves being is that she insists on deluding herself that she should be the woman that every man wants and every woman wants to be. If she had, instead, embraced her bitchy nature and became the love-to-hate type, she could’ve been somebody. But she is too mental to allow that.

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

            He gets paid for every page view, so of course he’ll let people spew hate at him.

          • JFA says:

            I respectfully disagree. She would never have been somebody no matter what. She has no talent in anything, her personality is vile and she is neither funny enough nor enough of a character to exploit her terrible qualities to at least be a girl everyone loves to hate but still sorta loves type character. She is nobody and won’t ever be anyone. No matter how many chances she gets to make it not so.

  11. GimmeaWackjob says:

    I am brand new to the JA madness, introduced by MissAdvised. I found this site and spent spare time on a few evenings reading old Gawker posts and this site and finding out her whole backstory. And damn, I had no idea.

    I am fascinated with her the same way I was fascinated with Kelly Bensimon of RHONY and to some extent Bethenny Frankel from the same show. For a long time I’ve been very interested in watching how the pursuit of fame and celebrity can make people crazy and stupid. For whatever reason, I seem to enjoy seeing attention whores with personality disorders make complete fools of themselves when they don’t have to, simply for the sake of celebrity. There’s always a huge chasm and major denial between how they perceive themselves and how others perceive them and she is an ideal example of this. She thought that if she presents herself as the perfect little perky princess that the world will beat a path to her door and proclaim her America’s Sweetheart. Instead she’s a laughing stock and has no idea why, making the same mistakes over and over again. I’m telling you guys nothing you don’t already know.

    What I saw after reading was a very pretty, extremely photogenic woman with adequate enough skills in print and broadcast, who could have channeled these meager but adequate enough skills in a positive direction and made a real career for herself, if only she had some focus, maturity and self-esteem. Instead I saw a vapid exhibitionist who believed she was some fictional TV character come to life.

    But you know, at this point, I sort of think she’s strayed into Britney Spears territory. Her ruining her face was her head shaving experience and Miss Advised was her beating the car with the umbrella. I sense she has something wrong with her beyond just narcissism and exhibitionism. I think the BPD diagnosis is probably closer to the truth and that there is likely more than that going on. I’m no psychiatrist or psychologist but I’ve seen enough bipolar behavior in friends of mine to know when that’s a real possibility.

    So I guess at this point I’m saying I feel sorry for her and maybe can’t snark on her as much as I’d have liked to, or would have done a few years ago. Because I think she’s legitimately mentally ill. But she and this site are a new source of entertainment for me, that’s for sure.

    • Malformed Face says:

      • GimmeaWackjob says:

        She’s peaked. Pancakes was the peak and whump, she’s dating some boring schlub who codes websites, loves computer gaming enough to read books about it (WTF?) and makes soap in his spare time. She just made herself look like an ass to another big chunk of the public who had no idea who she was before and who now have somebody new to point at and laugh. She probably knows she messed up her looks which were her main currency. She’s burned every professional and personal bridge she’s had. Where could she possibly go from here other than to some other media vehicle that wants to exhibit her like a trainwrecked circus freak for the lulz?

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

          Profound and very true.

        • JFA says:

          She’s writing a book, and the idea for her own show is not off the table, so thank you very much she’s got a lot going on, by the way she also has a bf.

          I just find it SO HILARIOUS that she posts pics of her and him at the premiere, talks about HOW PROUD she was of the show and “her vision” seeing reality etc. Um, did we watch the same show you fucking asshole? Because the one I watched portrayed you as an insufferable lunatic. It maddens me. She brags and brags about appearing on a show that literally made her look a complete trashy fool. I would have been embarrassed to ring my new bf to that shitshow. I can’t even imagine her sitting through it in public. Cringe.

          • flatface says:

            The fact that no one saw it and it will sonn be forgotten is good for her. It’s like with her professional writing resume: she lists all this publications she’s written for, but no one read any of that shit or can remember it. Which is good. Because it all sucked. Like her show.

            But this way she gets the implied glory of having been on a show without anyone being wise to its quality. And she will talk about it like it was so good it was a cross between the West Wing and The Wire, and the dumb shits who write about her won’t know the difference.

          • 11th Wang says:

            She says that her own show isn’t off the table, but it sure as hell isn’t on the table. I have a hard time believing it’s anywhere near a table.

          • JFA says:

            Bitch please. It took HOW MANY years to even get on a reality show? HOw many failed pilots? She will never, ever, ever get her own show, and I don’t think we will ever see her on reality tv again. What is she basing this on, the low ratings or the fact that most people couldn’t stand her as per critical response (which was beyond tepid?). She said on her FB they won’t know til the fall if it gets renewed and it’ll be “crowd sourced to death” or some such language. Oh honey, if that happens please kiss season 2 and your own show goodbye. Save a few bored “surgeon’s wives,” everyone thinks you are vile on camera.

            Yeah her new show idea in the table like her book in on the table like my ass is on the table.

          • It’s under the table, as in she’ll hire someone to write weekly scripts about drug store beauty products and other pretty pink princess tips which will appear exclusively (not by choice) on her Vimeo page, and pay the poor sucker in the form of re-grifts from her “oops!

            She went from being on network TV regularly to getting occasional two-minute spots (and plenty of side-eye) on local morning shows.

            “Miss Advised” is the extinction burst of her career. She got to be on real TV again, but as a piñata of failure and delusion.

      I also feel she’s peaked commercially (not because of her age, because of her talent) and concur with possible Britney correlations, but I’m not convinced she’s hit the wall or come down from the tower, or is even actively, sincerely seeking help.

    • Tingolayo says:

      Second-time poster, myself. (I guess that means I’ll have to go down on all of you to make you like me.)

      The Kelly Bensimon analogy is apt. At first, I thought Kelly was the carefree girl from a Ralph Lauren ad, breathing a little fresh air into the desperately trying-too-hard world of RHONY. Then I thought she was kind of obnoxious, and kind of delusional. Then I watched her completely lose her marbles on the infamous Scary Island episode. Then she suddenly disappeared– the men in the white coats came to get her in a speedboat. Then she showed up at the reunion show, and when anyone hinted at the, uh, awkwardness of the Scary Island ep, she moaned, “Wasn’t that awful? They bullied me! These women are sick! Bullying is a serious thing and I’m joining the fight against it!”

      And then it became really painful and embarrassing, to be a voyeur of this woman’s pain. Britney Spears territory, indeed. As someone old enough to be Britney’s (and Lindsay’s). . . aunt, I’ve always thought that both of them just needed strong role models and loving, protective parents.

      And as someone old enough to be Julia’s. . . aunt, it really bugs me that someone who’s only 30 frickin years old has done what she’s done with the “after-market work.” You’re only 30! You’re young! Enjoy it. Let your hair down. Stop trying to look 60. Leave the plastic surgery to Jocelyn Wildenstein. My mother wears younger, fresher, more chic styles than Julia does. And yes, my mother gets boyfriends! (Sigh. That’s another story. My mother’s discussing her boyfriend with me. I digress. I’m tiddly on one glass of white burgundy. The Cheetos sure make this expensive swill taste sour. Kiss me, William, or else I’ll punch you in the face!)

      Hee, I made a hilarious typo, which I corrected. Brittany for Britney.

      Oh, god. So full of smug she was. And then the truth came out and it was even more fantastic that I think any of us imagined.

      The thing that trouble me most about the Donkey is her refusal to ever acknowledge, much less atone, for her awful shit like snooping through Jack’s emails & texts, lying about being grounded & bailing on a girlfriends’ trip to Paris in order to go to Burning Man with grifters, or taking a big dump on a truly legitimate career opportunity (the Tribune column).

      I went to college in New Haven a few years ago, when the city didn’t yet have a supermarket downtown, so we would walk to North Haven to a neighborhood Italian grocer’s called Ferraro’s. The owner was extremely Catholic, and it showed. For example, the Ten Commandments was the first thing you saw when you entered the store, and the grocery bags were all printed with, “Smile, God loves you!”

      My favorite, however, was their butcher’s packaging. I once bought ten pounds of chicken legs that came in a bag featuring a picture of a cow. Above the cow was written, “Praise the lord!” And below the cow was, “Quality meat.”

      And so, to the above, I’d like to add, “Praise the lord. Quality meat.”

            He should have just bought her a pair of shoes and said thanks. Website developer? Say hello to 4 a.m. calls to change the font on a link that no one has ever clicked or ever will. Pinker! Can you make it pinker?
            She has her hooks in him deep.

        • JFA says:

          Also, god ew. Just what I do when I am into a new guy. Act all creepy stalkerish on twitter. Also isn’t this after they were already dating. Must have been KILLING HER to not be able to say anything til the show ended.

          I am rapidly tiring of her and don’t know if I can even watch anymore. she’s just getting TOO INSUFFERABLE. She is so high on herself now because she is a z-list nobody 12 people cheer on daily on FB. With a show no one watched on Bravo, and a mediocre in every way boyfriend. And she is just reveling in it all.

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

          So then first date WASN’T May 9? And Thorny introduced her to a web developer?

          Jesus, how does she keep it all straight.

          • Albie Quirky says:

            IRL, we know that she met Goat Soap at Coffee Bar coffee bar on May 9 and took his picture, right? Wasn’t that in the EXIF data for the picture?

            And then she posted the shirtless pic on May 17?

            So, yeah, how can she keep the lies straight in that enormonoggin?

          • Blinking.SOS.at.the.Camera says:

            She so doesn’t!
            But that’s not her fault, it’s the haters who don’t have anything better to do with their lives than read her tweets. And get confused. Wait, didn’t she say just two days ago that they were still filming after her grandmother died and that’s why she was crying? 30 second history check … oops?
            Not her fault.

        • Dr. Gary says:

          So if May 9th was the date she met her ‘web developer’, and not even their first date, then that makes this even more psycho:

      I don’t find it that weird to count your first date with someone as your anniversary, especially if you date for a while before having any kind of relationship-defining talk.

      It would be insane if she changed her status to “In a relationship” ON May 9th, but I don’t really see the problem with doing it in retrospect. Apart from the grandmother thing, which is also cray.

  20. Dr. Gary says:

    Great interview, Jacy. Very articulate and intelligent.

    Just went back to see what they included in the Observer piece. Surprising how much they left out. Perhaps you could post the link for anyone who never saw it or wants to re-read it?

    http://observer.com/2012/06/guess-whos-back-the-return-of-julia-allison/?show=all

    Also, there are some great comments that are worth a read.

    • Albie Quirky says:

      Speaking of comments, I love that the most favorited comment on Toilet’s YouTube is the one about finding her mum a date.

  21. One Fat Melman says:

    Fyi, some fangirl just tweeted at Julia and said, “You’ve had a bf this entire season? I feel duped!!”

    Julia responded by saying that she met him three weeks after filming wrapped…

    Apparently, 3 days = 3 weeks in DonkeyWorld (TM), so now we have her unit rate for future conversions.

    • Blinking.S.O.S.at.the.Camera says:

      She’s so breezy with her lies. Chilling.

    • Tremendous Liar; Donkey Repugnant (almost a transitive-property) says:

      Valuable insight into Donkey time dilation. Soon she’ll be braying about “the years we shared.”

  22. Albie Quirky says:

    It boggles my mind that someone would go around being all “Pay attention to me! Pay attention to me!” and then expect to control what kind of attention is paid.

    You wanted attention, Julie? We give you attention. Sorry it’s not what you expected; you might want to reflect on why that is.

    • This.

      She needs to stop caring what other people think, and just saying that you don’t care what other people think isn’t it. If she actually had interests beyond attention-whoring, pink, and sugar, she might find that she doesn’t have the time to care what people are saying about her.

      In the words of Bethenny Frankel: “GET A HOBBY.”

    • Peltergeist says:

      This is so spot on. I’ve never heard of someone so determined to be respected by the masses without ever TRYING to earn it.

      • Donkarena says:

        she really is so LAZY. Couldn’t be bothered to do her writing job for Elle.com, even when she KNEW that so many would kill for that job. All those people waiting to take her place, and she’s so damn lazy even that didn’t motivate her. This was her big chance to parlay that reality show into launching her ‘brand’ or whatever, and she squandered it. But, hey, she’s in love, so it’s all good…

        • Donkarena says:

          what scares me is when she feels forgotten by the world, can a sex tape be far behind.

        • Peltergeist says:

          Her laziness is really astounding. She’s been handed so much more than anyone I’ve ever known, and all she had to do was SOMETHING. If she at least turned in shitty columns on time, the editors would fix them. If she wasn’t such a problem child, people would keep her on the payroll. Etc. The fact that she’s so obsessed with her looks yet didn’t try to improve them for this show is really rock bottom laziness to me.

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

            As someone said on here years ago, she wants to get paid just for existing. This is why she wants to be a celebrity. She wants the fame, but not the hard work that goes into becoming famous, so she can have servants and go shopping and do nothing. That’s it. All the unpaid interns over the years, and the Taskrabbits, were so revelatory. She wants people to do the chores of living/working for her, so she can do nothing.

    • fauxtoshoot says:

      This is why I find Julia’s complaints about this site so disingenous. Julia constantly courts attention, and she will do anything to get it. One need not look past the wallpaper on this site to understand the epic levels of narcissism and attention whoring at work. She wants, nay, begs to be talked about, and that’s exactly what we’re doing. Sure, sometimes she will “cry” about this site and claim she wants to help ALL THE GIRLS from being bullied. But secretly, though this isn’t quite the fan club Julia imagined having, the topic is still her favorite subject in the world: herself. And if it was between the attention she receives here or no attention at all, we can all be sure that she would choose the former. (Of course, she doesn’t realize the main draw here is not necessarily The Story of Julia Allison, The Donkey Who Could, as there is the RBD book club, support network, beauty club, etc, but I digress…)

    • sausage curls/fingers says:

      At it’s worse, this site is the only real problem she’s ever had. It supplies a constant antagonist and dramatic filler in the romantic comedy she imagines herself living. I’ll never be convinced that she doesn’t revel in the attention.

      • You know she reads this blog regularly, refreshing the page ever few minutes and pores over all the comments, touching herself all the while. Just the thought of anyone talking about her, good or bad, gives her rotten heart palpitations.

  23. bitchface says:

    as a real tech person, this is the shit that annoys me most, not just from Julia Allison Baugher but also from the “Journalist” who wrote the stupid article:

    “Since her days on the New York tech/media scene, Ms. Allison indeed moved to Los Angeles and is in the process of shutting down NonSociety, which never meaningfully distinguished itself from Tumblr.”

    First of all, Nun-Socrappy was built ON the Tumblr platform. It was just a site using the code. It was not and therefore never could be “distinguished” from Tumblr.
    Second, it was a closed website about a few people. Tumblr is a micro blogging site / social networking platform that anyone can join.
    Third, the content came from people and was disseminated via their vanity site. Tumblr’s aggregation of content was built on the second premise, that anyone can join and share. Tumblr staff have nothing to do with the content on Tumblr -it’s user generated.

    You cannot compare apples to oranges then wonder why you end up with ButtCleanseJuice.

  24. Jelly Roll (formerly newbie) says:

    Wonder why she’s never thought to make a spreadsheet of all the lies she should be keeping track of? She had one for dates, even had a list of every drop of alcohol that crossed her (aftermarket?) lips…

    • sausage curls/fingers says:

      I imagine a secret room in her apartment that looks sort of like a writer’s room for a TV show, where they keep track of continuity when writing scripts. Just pictures all over the walls and string lines connecting her lies while she frantically spins and spins, hunched over her laptop.

  25. EyeRoller says:

    My assistant (at my desk job) also doubles as a doula. She just looked at me and said, “I have to leave early today because I’m meeting up with one of my clients who gave birth last week. I still have her placenta in my refrigerator vegetable crisper and she’s swinging by my house to pick it up at 4 o’clock.”

    Then before leaving she looked at me and said, “It’s a slow day. Why aren’t you reading about that donkey on that website you like so much?”

    I did not respond. Little does she know I’d already commented five times today and I just minimized this screen before she could see.

    What an amazing assistant/doula. She could really give Donk a few pointers on how to be a lady.

  26. Bulimia bloat with a side of bray says:

    Amanda Eberly ‏@amandaJeberly
    @JuliaAllison @kristinthorne is that some BLING on ur finger?!??? #MissAdvised

    @amandaJeberly – Yes! But it’s not what you think! It’s a diamond ring that my ex Alex gave to me. We are still great friends so I wear it!

    I thought he hadn’t spoken to her since he banged her at her friend’s place last year?

    • 11th Wang says:

      Omg.

      Looney tunes. Cuckoo! Cuckoo!

    • ShesJustStupid says:

      Different Alex.

      • Bulimia bloat with a side of bray says:

        I thought the only Alex she dated was the ineffable Mr. Marqhardt?

        • Albie Quirky says:

          No, this Alex is the guy who took her to Paris and bought her the sparkly green shoes.

        • JFA says:

          NO the alex she refers to is the older married dude she dumped her fiance for, the one whose apartment she squatted in in NYC for like 2 years after they broke up and paid no rent. Such great friends obviously because you know, there are zero photos of him on her FB post relationship and zero intimations that they ever hang out socially. Great friends to her probably means “doesn’t ignore my emails.”

        • JFA says:

          And she never dated the Marquedt (sp) guy. I think the rumor was they were fuck buddies because CLEARLY he can do better. She tried very, very hard to make everyone think they were a bit of an item though from what I remember.

          • Albie Quirky says:

            Yeah, they just hooked up. I’m sure she would have loooooooooved to date him, though!

    • Blinking.S.O.S.at.the.Camera says:

      Wasn’t she just with KT? I can’t help thinking that they planned out this little exchange because you KNOW JABa is holding her hand up like that specifically to elicit that very question. Textbook high school.

      • Blinking.S.O.S.at.the.Camera says:

        And subtext: my ex gave me this diamond but I’d much rather be wearing one from you, Spraytan.

        • Albie Quirky says:

          Ha ha ha ha ha that would be hilareballz if he bought her the diamond he could currently afford. She would be all Divine tearing down the Christmas tree.

        • How Brayella Got Her Hoove Back says:

          Spraytan might have some petrified Goat Soap to offer up as a “rock” for our D0nkey …

    • JFA says:

      Had to throw in how they are still great friends. Because anyone gives a shit. Just say “It was a gift from the past!” or just “It’s just a ring I had!” HOLY FUCK. She is really just responding to everyone.

      • Blinking.SOS.at.the.Camera says:

        Perhaps a not-so subtle message to whomever Alex is currently dating. Whatever he tells you, bitch, we ARE still great friends!! Maybe some sideline drama there.
        Anything is possible with this creature.

    • Peltergeist says:

      I seriously can’t believe she said that! Why would anyone say that?? I have a necklace I love that an ex gave me, and whenever someone asks where I got it I just said it was a birthday gift. Julia can conveniently forget something as black and white as THE TRUTH regularly and yet she can manage to name drop a specific ex every time in under 140 characters. This chick is deranged.

  27. A Donkey is an Ass says:

    Has anyone noticed that a few of her @sadfangirls have referred to her as, “corky and cute”?

    Corky? They’re perfect for her.

    • Albie Quirky says:

      She is corky, and I want you to bring the sommelier over so we can send her back!

    • Queen Neferteeri says:

      Corky? Because she’s short and squat? Or she reminds people of the Down Syndrome kid from “Life Goes On”?

      • A Donkey is an Ass says:

        Cocky Thatcher. I was going to say that too, but I actually liked him and thought it would be mean to compare him to a Donkey. He doesn’t deserve that.

  28. sausage curls/fingers says:

    It honestly surprises me that she hasn’t given up and let her true schemey, bitchy colors shine. She could be a (much older, less tiny and cute) Blair Waldorf Gossip Girl type if she’d stop pretending to be so nice. I think the thing that holds her back is the fear that that would prevent her from landing a wallet.

  29. After Market Errands says:

    Another point applicable to the NYO’s questions, I think: the bulk of Julia’s income over the course of her “career,” far as I can tell, would have been from her Star job, and from the random morning show appearances, until now, the reality show. And what she did on TV was weigh-in on celebrity gossip. That’s comment on… have “opinions on,” and criticize the lives and loves of people who were in the entertainment field and about which it could thus be argued, had brought attention upon themselves.

    Actors at least are possibly people practicing a studied craft for the sake of art (possibly). She then whines about people gossiping about her! When she grabs attention harder, and with no work, craft, etc., to garner that attention.

    • Albie Quirky says:

      See, when she says on Twitter that Rachel Zoe looks like a “retard” she’s being edgy and cute. When we say she acts like a complete jerk here, we are mean haterz. That’s Donkey Logic in action!

      • BAFFLING!

        Of course, it’s so much nicer to make fun of people with real disabilities when you’re trying to insult someone who is 100x more successful and has 100x more name recognition, but to closely examine why an attention whore is an attention whore, THAT’S JUST MEAN!

      • EyeRoller says:

        Were she to actually pull off the miracle of sounding edgy and cute, she’ll still never be able to make A FUNNY on purpose I repeat she could NEVER be even REMOTELY AMUSING (that takes self-awareness) with her own intentional devices. She can cry rocks and pray to Shiva but I doubt a single decent legitimate joke will ever once fall off of this mule’s tongue.

        I’m not trying to be insulting, it’s just that she doesn’t have that type of personality in the least.

    • Hopelessly clueless donkey is hopelessly clueless.

        • How Brayella Got Her Hoove Back says:

        She is so creepy. Always lurking around with her iPhone, secretly snapping photos and posting them to FB.

        Julie: you are a stalker and crazy. GET SOME HELP.

      • How Brayella Got Her Hoove Back says:

        Screengrabs? I can never the Donkey’s fecebook.

        • Dr. Gary says:

          There are a lot. I’ll try to pick a few good ones.

        • Dr. Gary says:

          Don’t remember seeing these before:

          • SirClompsAlot says:

            I don’t know how to post photos here … but the “with Jimmy & Jack, pre-ceremony” one is a gem.

          • SirClompsAlot says:

            And oh god “Shipmates!”

            Why can my eyes not unsee???

          • EyeRoller says:

            Wow. Even though I can spot two Juicy Juice boxes worth of Restylane in her face, she looks really pretty to me in that second photo. I’m guessing that was a really short-lived phase before Dr. Bobby had begun “plagiarizing his own work” on her face over and over again.

            I think Edward Needlehands originally gave Donk the Maria Menounos special, because that’s the vibe her Pic 2 Face is giving me.

          • How Brayella Got Her Hoove Back says:

            #1 — I’ve seen that one before.

            #2 — Sure can tell where the real (& really dirty) hair ends & the grease-resistant plastic pelts begin.

            $3 — Donkey raftass certainly ‘elevates’ her, eh?

          • How Brayella Got Her Hoove Back says:

            Also, RE: #1?
            Her collarbone is scary!
            Put it back!

          • ShesJustStupid says:

            She’s not tagging pancakes is she?

          • Dr. Gary says:

            @ShesJustStupid

            She tagged him in a lot of pix. I’m surprised he didn’t untag himself. Unless he did and she went DEFCON 5 on his ass. Like when he unfriended her and then re-friended her within days.

          • SirClompsAlot says:

            My god I can’t stop looking at them.

            I’m going to have nightmares about Donkey Calves of Death from the New Years photoset.

            And I can’t help it, but I love the pic with the baby screaming at Pancakes. Makes my ovaries swoon a little.

          • Albie Quirky says:

            She showed the top photo on the TV when she was talking about the home and belt they shared.

          • Donkarena says:

            “The Meal They Shared”

          In the ‘home they shared':

      • Why wouldn’t you delete these pix from FB after you broke up?

        Because that is what normal, rational people do, people who do not want to hurt the feelings of their current significant other, or the feelings of the ex’s current SO.

        A donkey, on the other hand, is irrational and so desperate to prove that she is lovable. Earth to Donkey: No one cares. Everyone else has their own business going on and whether or not you have once been in a relationship with someone is not something that most people need to see proof of.

        Your friends should already know who you once let hit it. And people who are not your friends have no stake in the matter.

        But I think you hit the nail on the head: it’s all a FUCK YOU to Megatits.

        So many cringe-y photos. Like this one, called ‘Jack’s new truck: “Truckosaurus”:

        [img]http://img706.imageshack.us/img706/6866/jacktruck.jpg[/img]

        • EyeRoller says:

          She’s lying. That was when she worked a monster truck throwdown as a “Rally Girl” in Hemet, Ca.

          • How Brayella Got Her Hoove Back says:

            I can’t ell if you’re kidding, but it is the same pair of whore-rendous white sandals & tit-thruster dress that she’s wearing in another fauxto …

            THAT said: FlapJack must have an itty bitty schmitty … aren’t those the types that drive those kind of “jacked” up trucks?

        • SirClompsAlot says:

          Truckosaurus: is she talking about the truck or donkey?

        • EyeRoller says:

          I’m sorry Brayella, I should’ve been clearer, I meant to say:

          “This is when she worked an In-N-Out parking lot at a prostitute throwdown as a valley girl in Sherman Oaks.”

        • frequent liar miles says:

          My theory on that dress is that Panky, viewing it amongst her fauxtos, pronounced it OMG HAUT, so she ressurected it from her tomb of hideous shmattas for seductionary purposes.

  39. Nickelodeon Chic says:

    So I saw (I think on Gawker?) that Mulder and Scully might be together in real life, and someone in the comments THERE mentioned it was a CDaN blind item, so I went down the celeb gossip “blind items revealed” rabbit hole and found this. With the Pancakes photo album stuff, I thought it only appropriate to share.

    http://www.crazydaysandnights.net/2012/07/blind-items-revealed_7848.html

    “One actor who lived with the actress said that he never asked her to move in but that she just kept bringing stuff over and he never noticed and then one day he realized she was there all the time. It took him years to get away from her.”

    So…congratulations Julia, you are like totally like Gwyneth Paltrow!

    • Norse Horse says:

      Ha, that was a cool reveal. I’m not sure I buy it though. It’s possible though, back then- Brad was the one who got Gwyneth famous, really, at first. And I can kind of see how in the long run they were very different. He’s a Missouri boy, she’s a Manhattan girl from a posh and connected family. They were pretty different.

      In her defense, a long time ago, just after she broke up with Brad, I was at a wedding of a mutual friend, she attended. And I must say, Gwyneth could not have been nicer or cooler, she went out of her way to say hi, introduce herself “Hi, I’m Gwyneth, what’s your name?” at this very nice summer wedding in the countryside, very friendly to everyone. She was famous, it was kind of a kick to see her, but she was really gracious and low-key and friendly. I know she gets a lot of stick for Goop and its ridic suggestions of v expensive things, people have an idea of her that she’s a stuck-up princess, but I don’t think that’s true, I really don’t. I kind of like Gwyneth all right, I don’t think she’s the snob people think she is.

      (Also mere quiet rumor: Gwyneth ended her friendship with Madonna, because Madonna is a thoughtless, inconsiderate, bossy imperious monster to have as a friend, just impossible. I like Madonna, but I fully believe this and see how it could be true. Good for Gwyneth if she’d had enough. Madonna seems to have no talent for keeping friends, at all. )

    Interesting. Do go on.

    “We are living in a world of first world problems & solving them in an elegant way is no small feat.” – @TheAtlantic on @Jack’s @Square

    Okay, this drives me crazy. “First world problems” is a phrase widely understood to mean, “mere annoyances in the larger scheme; petty annoyances of the relatively affluent”. By definition, solving petty annoyances of affluent Westerners actually might be a small feat, actually. And I really loathe how the lovely word, “elegant” has been kidnapped into the tech/pop sociology-economic lexicon of jargon, kidnapped from its meaning. But I suppose it sounds good at a TED lecture, the “elegant solution”. As if solving an actual problem (as opposed to a petty one) deserves extra points for style. It’s just babble, taking that word. Actual problems and solutions have nothing to do with elegance, really, unless you’re Auntie Mame.

        Oh lordy, thank you for the laugh. LuAnn let us know on the current episode how much she loves her some “ravioliS”. i don’t need to tell you why I took to the fainting couch with that. Also, LuAnn’s mouthy mother in a trailer park somewhere said Lu had her tubes tied years ago after the last kid, this “I want a baby at fifty, no wait, I’m forty-two, erase that” storyline she’s attempting is even more pathetically fake than we can dream.

        • Dr. Gary says:

          ‘i don’t need to tell you why I took to the fainting couch with that.’

          and thank you for the laugh you just gave me in return with that.

          That LuAnn is SO trailer park. I love her whole putting on airs act. It’s like bitch, we are on to you. Now go put on your tube top, cut off denim shorts, frosted blue eye shadow + hooker heels. ‘Cause that stripper pole at Mr. Charle’s Lady Lounge ain’t gonna work itself.

        • Greg says:

          Haha! Did you guys read Richard Lawson’s recaps of RHoNY? His backstory for LuAnn was just amazing. Countess Crackerjacks.

    I wasn’t going to laugh at this vulnerable woman. But then

    “Donkstock 2012″
    “Mule on rouge”
    “Edward R. Burro”
    “Emma Bourricot”
    “Blinking SOS at the camera”

    Thanks a lot, fat-asses.

    Thanks for posting the interview, I missed it the first time around.

    I’ve been aware of JA since her Gawker antics and have found it disturbing that despite not accomplishing anything at all in life, she just doesn’t go away. The amount of energy she must put into rigging the spotlight so that it shines on her is astounding, and that’s what fascinates me: the wasted time, the wasted energy, the wasted life. The way she treated that Elle Dot Com assignment, simple blog entries about her pre-arranged dates, made it appear that she felt work was beneath her, that her time was too valuable to toss away on words strung together into sentences. It’s much easier to just call yourself a writer enough that people (or at least yourself) start believing it.

    So, sadly, I anticipate a Season 2 for Miss Advised. Bravo got decent summer ratings, and JA got the publicity she craves.
