  1. Nickelodeon Chic says:

    Shilling for and distributing grifted tutus at Burning Man. This can’t be the life she envisioned for herself a few years ago.

  2. Scooby Don't says:

    A Donkey’s food and accommodation at Burning Man doesn’t pay for itself.
    Oh wait. Based on last year it doesn’t get paid at all.

  3. How Brayella Got Her Hoove Back says:

    As if SHE is driving HER rv to HER camp … yeah, riiiiight!

    D0nkey never misses a chance to insinuate HER raftass into the particulars, eh?
    And yet, she won’t actually lift a hoof work anything but to profit off of grifted items.

    Detestable D0nkey is detestable.

  4. How Brayella Got Her Hoove Back says:

    Someone should RT D0nkey’s layered-tulle shill twattage to @BurningMan …

    • SirClompsAlot says:

      Ditto. I hope she gets kicked out and banned. That would be my lolz for the year.

      • emma bourricot (slutty elephant costume) says:

        Oh man, me too. I wasn’t on RBD yesterday so I’m just waking up to this, but I would love to see a public smackdown. Throw her ass out; ban her for life. I can’t believe how disgusting she is. She will have a terrible time because it will be dusty and the grifters won’t be falling all over themselves to “welcome” her.

        Someone posted the Kelleigh C. thread from last year and it occurs to me that Donkey knew then that she had her Bravo show, so the scheme juices were off the charts. This year, she’s shilling costumes (her art, I guess). I hope everyone is as repulsed as they should be, and that Goat Soap dumps her in the middle of a bad acid trip.

      • How Brayella Got Her Hoove Back says:

        ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

        • How Brayella Got Her Hoove Back says:

          And because Blinking SOS is sooooo on-target re-re: D0nkey tweletions, let’s make sure this is on prominent display for @BurningMan:

          [img]http://i49.tinypic.com/25tfbk6.png[/img]

  5. CountMeInDaisy says:

    Color me shocked. What was it she said over the Velveeta Cheesy Skillets? “A girl’s gotta pay the rent”? I agree with Brayella, someone needs to RT this, maybe they’ll tell her not to bother showing up.

  6. Word Count says:

    She’s contributing to the killing of Burning Man culture.

  7. melting marionette says:

    i hate her “nationalism starts at 31″ comment. so crass.

    • Stinky Velour Couture says:

      meaningless. Hallo! Mercedes-Benz C class (leased!)

      and I was rung, these stinky Velours can’t be US of A

  8. diluted brain says:

    Typical donkey – breaking rules and making an event about her. I hope she gets called out on this because it’s not right to those who participate in Burning Man.

  9. EyeRoller says:

    She’s acts like she’s going to a college football game. I think she’s in a Gtown timefreeze and can’t grow up.

    • EyeRoller says:

      *she acts*

    • How Brayella Got Her Hoove Back says:

      Ditto, & yet …

      Julia Allison If college was the “best years of your life” … you’re doing it wrong.

      Doing It Wrong D0nkey is still, always & 4evah, doing it wrong.

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

        This from the chick who’s still obsessed with high school and prom. All righty then.

        It’s aimed at someone. I wonder if Goat Soap made the mistake of wistfully remembering his college years.

      • Grammarian says:

        BUT WHAT ABOUT PROM

      • EyeRoller says:

        The “Doin’ It Wrong Donkey Doll”, a Barbie/Mr. Potato Head hybrid, complete with “nationalist” American flag dress and detachable baboon ass lips.

      • Tingolayo says:

        If you post the words “my high school boyfriend” at least once a week, and you’re in your 30s, you’re doing it wrong.

        Bonus wrong points if you post it in your professional, not personal, writing.

        Oh, wait.

  10. Jelly Roll says:

    She’s not actually selling them AT Burning Man, though, is she? I would bet the deal is Free Tutus/etc. = Twitter Publicity (to her 125,000+ OMGFANS!!!)

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

      Would you be in any way surprised if she charged for shit she was given for free? She’s already offered herself for hire to act as someone’s Burning Man guide.

      Remember GiftCardGate.

      • Jelly Roll says:

        No, not at all. I think she’d do just about anything for a profit, and she probably (strike that “probably”) is stupid enough to advertise it, even if it’s blatantly against the rules. Just looked to me like she’s trying to promote herself as “giver of free tutus to all”. She’s helping ALL THE GIRLS! (and each tutu comes with an application for the Miss Pussy Stock Contest, I’m sure.)

      • EyeRoller says:

        A steady desert-bound grift-trail, trading tweet/publicity for an RV full of free synthetic tutu-ized crap, “organizing” her own little Costume Central with all of it at BM, then trading it all out for supplies, attention, and MDMA tabs.

        Here’s what’s weird to me: I used to deal directly with many of the collegiate retailer stores (don’t ask) who carry tutus from that tutuspirit.com company and the type of crowd/event associated with these products makes Burning Man seem like a corporate-sponsored, beer helmet-wearing, giant foam thumb-waving stadium event.

    • SirClompsAlot says:

      Yeah, but unless I’m wrong (which is possible) I think sponsorship is also banned. My ex used to go to BM and I think they’re not allowed any corporate/company goings-on whether for profit or just hey-look-at-us-givin’-away-stuff. Right? Or am I a wrong donkey?

      • zininator says:

        you’re right. they can “sponsor” her by providing her with stuff to give away but she can’t advertise her association with the company on the playa or at the camp or charge for goods or services.

      • mcakez says:

        I’ve been trying to keep mum on Burning Man, since I said more than enough last year. I will say that people go to great lengths to cover up corporate logos (covering the sides of U-Haul vans with tarps, or altering the logos using duct tape to say things like ‘U-Burn’) and explicitly endorsing the company would be frowned upon.

        Gifting, even of costumey tutus, would not be inherently frowned upon (even though it is kind of cheap and gross, since many people work all year or many years to assemble gear) and would likely be appreciated IF – and only if – it was free of any kind of expected shill or recompense.

        However, if she is intentionally handing them out with label attached, asking for pictures to be shared on social media to enhance the brand, or planning on tweeting ad nauseum after the fact the repay the grifted tutus, that would be considered advertising and against the spirit of the Burn.

        Based on her tweets so far, I expect that is the plan, or at least what the companies expect in return. At the same time, she is a lazy fucking shill, generally incapable (mostly through said laziness and added hypocrisy) of following through on a deal, and I doubt the company got anything in writing worth pursuing legally or even payng attention to (Sony! Armani Exchange! Online meds! CheesySkillets!) so much as her general “I’m famous! Look at my twitter following! Give me free shit!” grift, so she will likely skate by this one on that end.

        From the perspective of BM corp, I doubt she gets much of a smack down. They’re too big and to busy to deal with her shit, and it’s probably hard to figure out the specifics of whatever grift contract she’s worked out.

        Most likely, her camp mates tear all the labels off, the tutus get passed off in gifting, people think she is a hero for swinging a deal (all she really wants anyway, especially since tutus are HER thing, regardless of them being a BM staple – for heat purposes – long before she arrived) and nothing really comes down on her from the BM end of the pipe either, other than maybe a few “shilling is discouraged” clucks as the tags are ripped off, and she is assured her “heart is in the right place” (also, thanks for the tots cool freebies.)

        • mcakez says:

          Christ, sorry for the block of text.

          TL;RD version: Julia is a lazy shill, and has proven time and again that any company who unofficially contracts through her is wasting their resources. The community she is camping with will probably just obliterate the corporate element and she will walk away free of burden and thinking she is hot shit for bringing grifted tutus out and promoting her brand.

          Julia is fucking Teflon, somehow.

  11. EyeRoller says:

    I went to that tutu site and don’t know where to begin, so I just blindfolded myself and pinned the tail on the Youknowwhat. Here’s an excerpt:

    “WHAT ARE THE TUTUS MADE OUT OF?
    ‘Our tutus are made from high quality materials. The waistband is 3″ wide and made from nylon spandex. Our ruffles are made from a soft nylon tricot organza, NOT WIMPY TULLE or NET… Most importantly, our tutus are not itchy or irritating.’”

    I got two things out of that:
    1) A new nickname for Donk: WIMPY TULLE.
    2) Those tutus are unlike Donk in that they are not itchy or irritating.

    I did find out upon further reading that they come in 14,000 color choices (WTF.) and that they are made in the USA, so it’s easy to understand how a schizo nationalist like Donk could get sucked into a site like that.

  12. Donkarena says:

    I am sure she will miss her BOYFRIEND during Burning Man….although she doesn’t mention it

    • Jack the Bulldog says:

      Who do you think you are?! Goat Soap is right now seeing a doctor who specializes in men and manly problems, such as putting your peen in a burro when you thought no one was looking.

    • EyeRoller says:

      Don’t worry about FUTURE REDACTED. He’s safe in the arms of a midnight doctor who specializes in treating FUTURE REDACTEDs’-related concerns. Funny how THE MALE in Donk’s life is landing doctors way faster than Donk.

  13. Donkey of Perdition says:

    Why would she do this? I don’t care for Burning Man but you have to respect what they are trying to do, create a temporary gifting culture free of corporate sponsorship. From what I understand, these peeps take it quite seriously. Why would she ruin it for everyone else? For what? A couple free tutus. Chick has no shame.

    • Donkey of Perdition says:

      Sorry to reply to my own comment but wtf, this is getting under my skin. Doesn’t she have empathy for the ten’s of thousands of hours spent by the participants and organizers putting together Burning Man? That her singular act of corporate sponsorship is a giant cancer of fuckery and deceit in the middle of an attempted utopia of gifting and free exchange.

      She is literally the reason why humanity can’t have nice things.

      • EyeRoller says:

        no tiene vergüenza ninguna[img]http://i48.tinypic.com/29yrq5v.jpg[/img]

      • fig says:

        Right? Burning Man is so not my thing, but it’s just so rude and mean to completely ignore those intentions. Same for her feathered outfit last year. There are people actually sweeping up in the desert so no small particles are left behind, and Julia wears the one thing that is known to shed and not supposed to be around, cheap feathered clothes.

        I seriously don’t understand why she doesn’t get punched more often.

        • mcakez says:

          Since I am apparently on a roll, and Julia will probably be radio silent for a few days, I will go ahead and pop in here to point out that you are right. The DWP (officially Department of Water and Power, but also the ‘Playa Restoration Crew”) stays out there for around three to six months making sure there is no remaining ”MOOP’ (Matter Out Of Place’). They go through like fucking archeologists, shifting and sanding the entire five mile square area to make sure it remains virtually untouched (although shut like feathers and glitter have been reported to be spotted after the fact – there was an article about it somewhere) because it is a natural reserve/reservation territory.

          There have been a number of years in the past where the lease of the land was almost not renewed, due to the growing population and pollution – especially due irresponsible RV campers (i.e. those afraid of tents) and incompetnently manned generators. Not to mention dumping of grey water and general ‘yahoo’ behavior (those who ignore the concepts and still trash the playa as they party, or think feathers and sparkles are just to omg cute to forgo!)

          I don’t think I will ever attend another Burning Man, and I get that it is a source of derision here, but there are people who care about the spirit in a way that Julia never will, and which I don’t think it is relevant to detail here further. That said, I believe, based on my friends who still go (though many have also become more disenchanted), that there are still many people who support that spirit, and I know many virgins can carry it forward in positive ways.

          “The world has moved on” for me. It is still upsetting, though, as fig mentioned, that many people hold the ‘Leave No Trace’ spirit in such utter contempt.

          Funny related story, though, in that vein. One year I was traipsing (possibly tripping, I will neither confirm nor deny) around the night desert – where people tend to get sloppier and forget the LNT rule – when I literally tripped over a mostly full can of Coca Cola sitting in the open playa. Being a fucking hippie, I picked it up, but refused to dump it on the desert, so I fucking carried that can in my hand all night long. After some hours of me refusing to dump it out or abandon it, we named it ‘Carl.’ I did, eventually, pour the contents out in a Johnny-on-the-Spot and then tucked it into the cords of my camelpak.

          For the rest of the Burn, Carl became a camp inside joke/mascot, sticking out of those cords, and my then bf and I even slipped it into our camp mates’ bed once with a note that said, “Carl was cold and wants to sleep with you tonight.” He also accompanied our vehicle on ensuing Burns. I cannot be entirely certain, but he might very well be tucked away in my dust covered gear somewhere in the garage.

          It was fun, and funny, but also became a sort of emblem of ‘Leave No Trace’ for us. If I could carry that random can in my hand for hours before politely pouring it out and tucking it into my bag and hauling it home six days later, it made things like picking up random MOOP and bagging it for later disposal no big deal.

          Dammit. I’m sorry for waxing nostalgic, y’all.

          • fig says:

            I seriously admire the “Leave No Trace” policy.

            Every time I am home at my parents I take a lot of walks in the woods. And every time I snicker at a pissy little note some people from the town posted where you enter the forrest, asking people to not toss their used tissues. And every time, not five minutes later I start to get annoyed by the amount of crap I find, from beer bottles to food wrappers and end up spending a good portion of my walk trying to figure out if taking a bag and just picking up all that trash would be the right thing to do or just another item on the “kind of weird chick” list that I really don’t want to add on to.

            And I really like the Carl story.

      • SirClompsAlot says:

        According to the map, she’s pretty much right out in front, too, so right in everyone’s faces. LOOK AT ME, BURNING MAN! I HAS PINK FRILLY TUTUS!!! BURN THIS, BITCHES!

      • Wonkeye says:

        I would never the burning man, but my friends who go are sweet, smart, creative people who spend months working on their camp plans, masks, and whatever the hell else. They have a real sense of community and are genuinely good people. I’m appalled on their behalf because they would/will probably just gently try to persuade her away from her crassness.

        • Grammarian says:

          i used to want to go, but over the years the people who go who are boring/insane/attention whores started to outnumber those who aren’t and are smart/creative/interesting

  14. fig says:

    I’m pretty sure she did something similar last year. She tweeted thanks to people opening a warehouse after hours and “donating” clothes she brought to share with her grifter friends.

  15. Malformed Face says:

    So this is why she bought 17,000 fans in 24 hours? So she could prove she was worthy to give away free tutus? The tutu company is obviously giving her money to do this or she wouldn’t do it.

  16. Jelly Roll says:

    If I recall correctly, when she first twat the link to the tutu company there was already stuff in her basket. My first thought was, “what in the world is she going to do with hundreds of dollars worth of tutus?” aaannnnnnddd now we know.

    • Malformed Face says:

      I can’t imagine that her reps did not push Donkey to write a book proposal to capitalize on this opportunity. MAJOR FAIL FOR A MAJOR FAILING DONKEY!

      In her deluded mind she didn’t have to do the work b/c surely Bravo is giving her her own spin-off!

      • KashMoney says:

        imagine it. her “people” would not be pushing hard since this would not be grounds for a book deal (and if you look at Amazon you can see Amy’s sales are terrible).

        I don’t even know that she has an agent, her last agent quit the business.

        • Malformed Face says:

          I imagine that are more inclined not to push knowing she would not deliver and they would, again, have egg on their face.

          As far as “grounds for a book deal” – shit, it’s Hollywood… anyone can get a book deal.

        • Jordache and the Pelts says:

          At least Emily’s book is more pleasingly illustrated than The Joy of Sex of my youth. Ew.Hairy.Ew.
          I don’t think the concept for Emily’s book is that bad – I could certainly see the runovers sold for 4.99 in the Urban Outfitters bargain bin book section.
          It certainly beats Julia’s nonexistence tome. It’s so hilarious that Julia’s inability to write, to produce work, was a major storyline on Miss Advised.

        • Dyspeptic says:

          I saw a review copy of Amy’s book lying on a “reject” desk when I went in to my office last week. I picked it up, scanned a paragraph or two, and quickly put it down again as if my fingers had been burned. It wasn’t even worth a hate-read.

        • How Brayella Got Her Hoove Back says:

        Extremely pathetisad indeed, given that she was the one billed as the “writer/journalist” of that show. And yet her current writings are only found buried around Elle.com and her Bravo blog?
        What a joke and waste she is.

      • KashMoney says:

        ghost-written to boot.

        • Jelly Roll says:

          It literally advocates things like: “Do matter how cute you feel in your yoga pants, don’t wear them on a first date. EVER. You should try to look as nice as you can.” Just truly, groundbreaking stuff.

          • Jelly Roll says:

            oops “no”, “no matter” – although it might say “do matter” in the original text: it’s THAT bad.

          • KashMoney says:

            eh, I think that’s more of a failed attempt to be funny. sometimes the advice is to dress like you normally would, and it’s no surprise ice queen amy would advise against that.

          • Jelly Roll says:

            Oh no – you’ll have to read it (some of the pages are available to read: can’t remember if it’s on Amazon or her website, though…), but she’s being absolutely serious. As in, she truly believes that showing up to a date looking “nice” (i.e. not like you just woke up/went to the gym/got home from burning man) is the type of advice women have never, ever heard. She’s not a terrible writer – I’d say she has a relatable voice, but her advice is just laughable.

    *peeps– i pasting here because i accidentz just put on yesterday’s thread. sorrz.

    Ho’ly Shit. The wayback IntrntNvrFrgts time machine took me to this ’07 CNN clip (uploaded by JA herself), where she appears on CNN to talk about television viewers being mean, specifically about the public’s harsh criticism of very bad American Idol auditioners. This is more than hilarious, half past sad, and oh so telling:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AZs97Zdosek

    She defends the critics, which in today’s context, makes me think she’d be more appreciative of this site. Her quotes include “Everyone loves a train wreck” and “it’s not like they’re drowning puppies”, and “they’re just telling bad singers they’re bad singers”, and continues, smirking and giggling about the contestants, “and that they’re ugly too.”

    Here’s your diploma from FU Donk, because much of what I see on this site is the thing you were defending on CNN. There’s laughter and some really attentive, insightful people telling a bad donkey she’s a bad donkey. Now exit stage wrong you braying mantis. PS She looked #stiffcheese back then but still really good, several faces ago. Nowadays Donkey officially has a “face for radio”. Ah, a giant pearl necklace from the shaft of Ol’ “Karmic Samsara”. Isn’t that what she calls it?

    • SirClompsAlot says:

      This is why I never pay attention to talking heads, because if Julia is on this shit consulting about something that she has no ties, no expertise in at all, then why should I care about any other talking head on teevee? They’re most likely also pointless opinions. They might as well have done a man-on-the-street interview in a cow patch for this. I have no idea who the other guy was either.

    • Fameless Shamewhore says:

      Thanks for posting this link, which I had seen, but not for a long while.

      What strikes me is not only the change in her appearance – which after all we can understand, because we know what she did to her face – but the change in her demeanor on television. In this segment her body remains still and composed. She doesn’t fiddle with her hair once, she doesn’t grimace or pull faces, she doesn’t talk about herself. Her hands stay on her lap, her legs are crossed.

      She’s not brilliant…but she behaves appropriately for the context.

      As I say, the face I get. I don’t know *why* she did it, but I know that she did get alot of work done, repeatedly.

      But how can she get so bad at television and media, when she was pretty good at it??? How does a person go *backwards* in terms of camera presence and demeanor?

      I am GENUINELY curious. Any ideas???

    Does everyone wear costumes at Burning Man? Are tutus mandatory? Is it just a marathon Halloween party with a bonfire? Do burners (hate that word) normally make three or four costume changes every day? She’s just going there so she can play dress-up, isn’t she? These are not rhetorical questions (well, except for the last one). I really want to know — how fuck? Also, does anyone else think Goat Boy dumped her ass after the Chicago trip? i only read her tweets and FB updates here on RBD, and she hasn’t mentioned him in those. (I think her minor man emergency was just a ruse, and he wasn’t really there.)

      it kind of is, it’s about radical self expression, i’ve gone dressed up as a jerry bear (from the grateful dead artwork), pirate, monet painting, and just wearing my own clothes too.. but it’s hot and almost everyone ends up mostly naked. the thing that i don’t think a lot of people get is that it’s about creativity and community and radical inclusiveness. she’s doing a very burn-y thing frankly. i think she’s insane and annoying and obnoxious but everyone on the playa is kind of going nuts at the same time. as long as she doesn’t have like DONKEYTUTUWAREHOUSE.COM banners all over her camp, it’s perfectly acceptable. a lot of other camps provide costumes and materials to make them as well.

          That’s 100% what it’s about. That’s what’ so insidious, she pretends she 100% Miss Burner 2012 when she’s really going as a paid grift from this company. If you take a Tutu, be expected to have your picture splashed all across the three websites she’s working with – no matter how drunk or drugged out you are – which is your right, you’re at Burning Man.

          It’s Donkey’s intent, masked as something else, that is always so grotesque.

          Isn’t picture taking also against the ethos of the event?

Sounds expensive, parking or towing that thing! There will be fall-out when she avoids paying her share. But suddenly, it’s a collective misfortune.

    Well, I’m enjoying the prospect of Donks not having the creature-comforts of an RV, being in a tent, hopefully paired up with a farty pervert of either sex. I love how she’s making it sound like a life-tribulation thing, the Sorrows of The Donk. Yeah, haha.
    Roughing it is quite in the spirit of Burning Man; I knew quite a few people who went when I lived in San Francisco, none of them had an RV.

    I left SF four years ago, but before I did I read an article about how RV rental companies there are really reluctant to rent for Burning Man. And that they actually send camera-equipped spies tosee how the RV is being used there, so they can keep the maximum deposit and even more for damages. Doesn’t sound like fun, being spied on. Who knows though, Julia might like it. Greg knows, she’s probably paying minimal fuck-all for this anyway.

    • Can-Swiss says:

      I wonder if this is how it went down. The group shows up to get the RV. Everyone is dressed in shorts and t-shirts, acting normal, waiting for JABs. Then, 45 minutes late, she rolls up in her rented MB in a tutu, ass hanging out screaming “BURNING MAN!” like she did “PROM”.

      The rental company tears up the contract.

      Tents for everyone!

  32. Moonshinedonkey says:

    The problem is that she probably didn’t get an RV pass for BM or they told the co that they’re OMGGOINGTOBURNINGMAN! and the rental place was like, “The fuck you are, you donkey.”

      Mindy knows Ricky Van Veen through BJ Novak, and as we all know RVV thinks Julia Allison is a pathetic joke, as do ALL of (Redacted’s) “OMGtech friends.” For awhile there was a picture of her up in the Vimeo office that everyone drew dicks all over, etc.

      RVV sort of grosses me out now, though. He upgraded his outdated model of the “doe eyed brunette” for a 2012 model (the untalented star of HBO’s “Girls” – aka “what rich kids do instead of making a web series). I guess he has a type.

    There is NO WAY IN HELL she is going to be self-sustainable during that time.

    At BM you even have to bring your own water, not just for drinking but for washing, cooking etc.

    I bet she hired some kind of servant(s) to haul the supplies and keep her RV’s water tanks full I am sure they will also supply her with fuel for the generator and food and take care of general housekeeping chores.

    I was reading about how tents need special rebar anchoring due to the high winds so they don’t blow away, and it is impossible to keep the dust out of them. You need to put down extra visqueen so you can gather up the dust and take it out. I am laughing imagining her in one of her ridiculous outfits looking like she’d rolled around on the moon. Also, doesn’t she wear contact lenses? I don’t recall seeing pictures of her with goggles, I wonder if she even has any? If not she’s going to be in constant agony from dust blown in her eyes.

    WHY is Donk going to Burning Man?

    She is way less BM and way more RF (Renaissance Fair). Actually, she’s way less RF and way more MT (Midieval Times). Actually actually, she’s way less MT and way more LJS (Long John Silver’s), twatting over a tear-stained kiddie meal box of “fork free fish” star-shaped nuggets, in a tent pitched in a Ramada Inn parking space beside a soon to be repoed winnebago 3/4 of the way to Black Rock City, because who can afford motel rates on six figures these days when you’re a fibbing lazybones cheapskating unoriginal anti-purist who can live out your own poorly scripted “Carry Rickshaw takes Burning Man” dream webisode for the haters WHO, BTW are the only ones watching so YOU’RE. WELCOME. JACKASS. Now excuse your cry-shitting.

    For the record–
    1) I love/have loved Midieval Times, Ramada Inns, and fibs alike but now I’m doubting everything I’ve ever known from my teensy, tainted corner
    2) There is a difference between purism and originality; this donkey is/has neither.
    3) I take back the part about Long John Silver’s. She is an insult to “fork free fish” nuggets, or deep fried fast food drive thru sea creatures of any sort for that matter. I would instead wish to substitute “Chevron gas station gummy fish (Pescatarian-friendly!) and gluten-free scratch off lotto tickets” as the ACTUALLY type of girl she is.

    OT, but (former?) JA agent George Ruiz becomes a deadbeat dad again in ~10 days, when (former?) RBD poster and lightening rod Alana Joy gives birth. George is the type of person that I’m hoping Julia ends up with.

    • Ridonkulous says:

      I laugh at how Alana Joy has royally fucked up her life. Oh how the (high and) mighty have fallen.

      • afghani says:

        Was she ever mighty or high? I never really saw it that way; I was only familir with her via RBNS.

      Those hippies look plastic and made in China! Seriously, you write something like that- “overrun with hippie burners!” and have a picture link of.. a boring shopping cart. I mean, I really wanted to see the “hippie burners” her tweet was specifically talking about. She really is ‘tarded, right?

      “My basement is being overrun by dozens of frolicking, naked porn stars right now. (Here’s a picture of my ginger-ale can.) “

      • Random Snowflake says:

        Fucking awesome. But yeah, she manages to take an opportunity to post something somewhat interesting and instead posts a photo of a shopping cart full of Chinese made plastic shit from Walmart.

      • Helena (Sexy Baconface) says:

        Bwahaha! Exactly. It’s but a part of the boring tapestry that is her life. She consistently fails at realizing what people find interesting, even on the most basic level. But hey, PROMMMMM!!1!

  50. Dr. Gary says:

    UGH. She’s stocking up on crap at a Walmart. Which goes against the whole ‘decommodification’ concept of Burning Man. But what really caught my eye: is that a FUCKING MIRROR in her cart? Seriously? NPD Donkey is NPD.

    • Who do you think you are? says:

      Look at all of that crap. She’ll either drop it in a dumpster, foist it on someone else at BM to take it home, or hire somebody on taskrabbit to sell it for her.

      • SirClompsAlot says:

        I think the pink bins are to hold all her BMs. She can’t shit in the same pot twice, ya know!

        Cracks me up that she’s even late to vacation. Gurl can’t do anything on time.

      • Greg'sWife (literally) aka DirtyLakeMichigan says:

        She is so wasteful.

    • Meow Mix says:

      She probably dropped like $200 on all that shit that she’ll never use again. It’ll most definitely be in a dumpster by the end of the week.

    • zininator says:

      come on you guys, i get it and i think she’s crazy and annoying too but if she’s giving out costumes she’s going to have to put them somewhere and people are going to have to see themselves in a mirror to make sure they look okay, right?

      the anti-commodity thing is more at the event, not what you bring. people set up whole bars and luxury lounges. of course they had to spend money to get the stuff they use. we definitely spent money and bought stuff to take to brc. i just see some bins (probably for her costumes), a mirror for people to try stuff on with, some rugs and some tp. all useful things, considering. this kind of hair splitting is silly.

      • CaptainGary says:

        Dude, she’s making you look silly. Because of your commitment to the principles of the ‘Burn (gag), it’s almost as if you feel required to defend the way everyone does it, no matter how lame or against said principles.

        Here’s the thing – Julia Allison, even without stopping at WalMart (like, in the eyes of most people who espouse Burner principles, the most evil corporation ever, amirite) to stock up, doesn’t share your principles. She’s espoused those same principles exactly twice in in the past decade. The rest of the time, she flies around unnecessarily and has a huge, decidedly non self-sufficient lifestyle; seemingly values only money, status and fame; and generally is a nasty piece of work to anyone who can’t directly serve her immediate interests. And even when she DOES say she’s espousing the principles of Burning Man, all she’s done is order/grift pre-made costumes online and swing through WalMart to buy a bunch of Made in China crap.

        Based on the people I know who are into this whole thing, it doesn’t really sound like she gets it. But you must know, I guess.

      • CaptainGary says:

        Also, to hear you tell it, the so-called principles of Burning Man only exist at the event? Then what, may I ask, is the point? Camping for rich bougies to make themselves feel cool? Sweet.

      • Dr. Gary says:

        If that’s what those supplies are for, and she’s really going to participate in and honor the ‘gifting’ principle of BM? Then that’s great. I’d say she’s really evolved and is a better person for being part of BM. Maybe it’s taught her some valuable lessons.

        But knowing her and her history? Seems unlikely.

        However, after it’s over, if we see photos & hear stories from other burners about how gracious she was, and her costumes really enriched someone’s experience? I’ll be the first to say I was wrong and good for her.

        • Dr. Gary says:

          ALSO: that she didn’t charge anyone any kind of fee to ‘rent’ costumes or ‘borrow’ any part of a costume, e.g. tutus, hair accessories. Or didn’t barter for something in return or expect to gain from it in any way.

          ‘Gifting: Burning Man is devoted to acts of gift giving. The value of a gift is unconditional. Gifting does not contemplate a return or an exchange for something of equal value.’

          • Blowjobs by Bravo says:

            Point being, she tries so hard to be cool and different and she ends up being years late to everything. Burning man isn’t my thing, but it’s old hat now. It’s almost like if someone told her walking on fire was the new cool thing to do-oh wait.

          • Dr. Gary says:

            @blowjobs by bravo

            Exactly.

          • CaptainGary says:

            To me, it’s not even about Burning Man – it’s about her ability to feign passion for/knowledge of/solidarity with a certain cause/event/idea, only to abandon it when another bright, shiny object draws her attention. People who ARE in fact passionate about things she drifts in and out of can be forgiven for defending her and trying to get us hatroz to understand what it’s all about. They don’t know, as we do, that Julia has no principles, doesn’t really identify with them and will abandon their cause the second some other person or idea comes along that she thinks can benefit her.

            In short, I forgive you, Zininator.

          • SirClompsAlot says:

            Whenever Julia shows up to something, it’s officially dead. See also: her (and her store-bought upside-down-headbanded Wonder Woman costume) at Comic Con. The Con has been (commercially) ruined for quite a few years now, but the arrival of Donks is the last nail in its coffin. Hell, it’s the rotted wreath tossed out after the coffin’s been in the ground for ages.

    And I love how she’s ‘off the grid’. Except when she needs to be Cunty McCunterson to some random tweet:

    Somewhat OT, but WHY THE HOW FUCK is Rachel Sklar in Tampa! Her “covering” politics is as fucking ridiculous as Julia Allison “covering” tech or fashion. Sklarge has no credentials, no nothing….she just obsessively tweet stalks actual political reporters. Her twitter stream is UNBEARABLE right now.

    I assume she’s just there to inflate her own reputation through her transparently bullshit TECH JOBS FOR ALL THE GIRLS campaign. She must be less repulsive in person than Julia and actually manage to charm people, but she’s the same pathetic joke just delivered better. Gross.

    • bitchface says:

      I concur; I think it’s one of those politically correct things. If you say anything bad about her/it you are AGAINST THE CAUSE OF WIMMIN IN TECH AND HOW DARE YOU sort of thing.

      However, she has a lot of people snowed, just like fat ass Robert Scoble.

      • Whiny Bitch Spoiled says:

        Oy he is the worst of the worst. Even the name for his agency “Kinda Sorta Media” makes me want to blind myself with lye and scream bible verses on a corner for the rest of my life.

        That’s why I used to really love GOMI, because they regularly stuck it to idiots like Scoble and the shit show clubhouse that is Tumblr, but now its just bland commentary on fashion bloggers I’ve never heard of.

        • bitchface says:

          what’s GOMI?

          • Andy Wintour hacks (up a furball) says:

            bitchface, I thought you’ve been here long enough, no? GOMI is “Get Off My Internets”, another snark blog about other stupid people on the Internet. There was some history there between GOMI and RBNS (pre-RBD), but there was a falling out. It used to be good, but now it just posts about mommy bloggers and “fashion” bloggers. Some people may care, but I find it snoozfest.

          • bitchface says:

            haha PartyPants bitched me out for asking (along with RRR and a few others) for more tech people posts. HOW DARE I – NO 1 CURR was her response. That was right before/after she said “I can’t buh-lieveeeee that people still talk about that loser Julia Allison” as if she was better than an angry cat person now.

            I never went back. Had to think to remember what it even stood for.

          • Handbag Stuffed With Hair says:

            I don’t get GOMI at all. If PP were into fashion herself, that would be one thing. But she’s not Mormon, not married, has no kids, seems to hate anyone who does, doesn’t care about fashion, so she devotes an entire three websites to married mommybloggers and fashion?

          • Prof. F Camping Prof. F Camping says:

          • afghani says:

            For me it’s the hair splitting and in-fighting. As much as people in-fight here, it’s generally not pointless and it rarely comes from the mods themselves. I feel like there’s more tolerance here–both tolerance generally and tolerance for different viewpoints and personality quirks.

        • Sad Rat In Sidewalk says:

          FWIW, Kinda Sorta Media = Rex Sorgatz.

          Robert Scoble = I don’t even know what he does anymore.

          Both were extremely worthy GOMI targets.

          A lot of people in tech and media circles REALLY don’t like Sklar and are aware that she’s completely full of shit and all about promoting herself rather than helping ALL THE GIRLS. But like JA, she is vengeful. Unlike JA, she still has some very important people fooled and buying into her scheme. Consequently, people do not want to piss her off because they’re concerned she may try to destroy their reputations in the process.

          And she has absolutely no reason to be crashing political conventions.

          • Grammarian says:

            Good times, yeah

    • Norse Horse says:

      I’ve kind of forgotten Sklar, never see her byline anywhere- but I do remember someone used to do a cartoon mocking her, and her atrocious spelling, grammar, and logic. Drawn in stick-figures. Was that at Gawker?

      Funny now to think she was ever worth the effort. Huh.

      • Sacred Scrapbooks says:

        That was “Editor At Sklarge” on GOMI. It was hilarious.

        • Greg'sWife (literally) aka DirtyLakeMichigan says:

          It was hysterical.

        • Dr. Fraud, MD says:

          Unfortunately I think Alice is sloooooowly distancing herself from the old “fat angry loser party pants” persona and starting to seriously consider monetizing the snark. Which means she’s not going to be taking any sh*ts on people who might one day somehow someway help in that effort. It’s a sad thing, if true.

          • How Brayella Got Her Hoove Back says:

            The bitch hunts on mommy bloggers & people who dress different for a living? Bleh. But as long as PP is categorizing GOMI into sub-sets or off-shoots, whatever it’s meant to be called, I wish she’d create an exposé category for the likes of ‘Hot Widow Boots’ & those filthy little non-parents who walk a thin line just this side of child abuse & so on … that ‘Whoa, how fuck!’ stuff I would subscribe to for the occasional alerts.

          • RollsRoyceRevenge says:

            I sort of wish the GOMI-bashing on this site would stop. I know PP did make a comment about Julia that was dismissive as cited above but she quickly pointed out that that was simply her opinion and even linked to this site for people who were curious. And there are no threads dissing RBD that I am aware of.

            Frankly, I love you all, except Beauchamp, and I know you all love me, except for the few or possibly many who don’t, what with me being a bit of a sociopathic cunt and all and well, okay, forget I said anything.

            I do miss the Scoble/etc. bashing, but it’s PP’s choice and more power to her. I could also run my own blog and don’t, so that’s where it stands as far as I’m concerned.

            I totally agree with Brayella that there are some monstrous targets on GOMI that are more interesting than the usual run of fashion bloggers, but would like to assert that many of the twits featured on the blog currently are truly awful and fully deserving of the classic GOMI treatment.

            Um.,..tl; dr.

          • idiotbox says:

  56. Ba-donk-a-donk says:

    OK, here’s what I don’t get about this Burning man obsession of hers. I don’t wanna offend anyone, so if you are easily offended then skip this post. And please excuse my ignorance but, I’m new to this blog and was oblivious as to who Donk was before I watched Miss Advised. Little did I know she was some sort of famous person when I never even heard of her before Bravo. Donk perceives and portrays herself as this sophisticated, high class, ivy league, hoity-toity, yuppie, princess slash June Cleaver slash Jackie Onassis Kennedy type… (note I said portrays herself as, I didn’t say she is those things). So what I don’t get is her interest in going to BM. From what I’ve been told, BM is a music festival for hippy dippy types and ravers. Someone once told me it’s like Woodstock meets Studio 54 meets Lallapalooza meets Survivor. Donk doesn’t seem like the type who would tolerate a week in an isolated desert, getting stoned, tripping on X and taking hits of acid. She seems more like the type that listens to opera and new age classical. Donk has said herself she fears parental rejection, or was it parental disapproval, whatever… Why don’t I see Mr. Baugher the Yale Law School graduate condoning his only daughter spending a week in a remote location with tweakers and potheads? Is Donk packing her pink designer dresses and pearl necklaces to wear in the desert? Does she have a pink bong? Alright, sorry if I come across as judgmental. I know it’s wrong to stereotype people but lets be realistic. Does anybody really think Donk would fit in at BM (even though they foster acceptance of anyone)?

    • Malformed Face says:

      “From what I’ve been told, BM is a music festival for hippy dippy types and ravers.” – this is what is once was in it’s truest form. If you read up on it, in the past few years, it’s been saturated with rich OMGFounders clogging it with gourmet food, lux RVs, etc.

      She’s wallet chasing when she’s there. I don’t believe her BS about fearing parental disapproval. She went on national TV and talked about blowing a guy on the second date. She knows if they haven’t cut her off from that, they never will.

      She is a loser.

      • CountMeInDaisy says:

        Maybe they think she honestly can’t sink any lower than admitting to blowing someone on the second date. On national television.

        • Ba-donk-a-donk says:

          I was floored that she admitted to that on TV, knowing that her entire family and unborn children might one day see that. I also didn’t think that a prissy princess who “prides good oral hygiene” would lower herself to giving BJ’s to a man she hardly knows.

          • Helena (Sexy Baconface) says:

            Well, BJs or not, her hygiene is questionable to say the least, and there’s disgusting photographic evidence of that, as well as some personal testimonies.

      • totaljing says:

        You know what’s truly hilarious- look on her FB page and see the pictures of her in a turquoise dress, pearls, wrap sweater and then her green clown leotard ass photo right next to it…

      The message of the event is irrelevant. Burning Man Barbie is just another of her caricatured incarnations (like “relationship expert”) based on nothing and sharded from her splintered soul.

      • Ba-donk-a-donk says:

        She does seem like she alters her persona based on what she wants to achieve but at the same time wants everyone to think she is “authentic” and true to herself (Bullshyt). So this week it’s fit in with the potheads at BM. Next week it’s fit in with Military familes. Next week it’s to fit in with the Ivy League crowd. And then wear the mask of New York artsy fartsy socialite. Where does it stop?

      One, what else does she have to do with her time? Girl cannot stand to be in one place, bone idle, for more than 10 days at a time or thereabouts, so she is constantly on the move, just to be somewhere else, for no other reason than to create what looks like a busy schedule (of doing nothing of value) but spread across several locations.
      Two, photo op.
      Three, to rub it in the face of one of her exes (any random guess will be close enough … male or female) that she now owns Burning Man, not them.
      (See also recent and past trips to: Hawaii, SXSW, Davos, Las Vegas, NYFW, Runyon Canyon, future supposed trip to Peru, etc. etc. etc. etc. etc.)

      • bitchface says:

        it’s because there is no there there

        she is shallow and vapid and devoid of true emotions – her emotions are merely mimicking what she thinks they should be. Thus she so easily gets bored with herself and must go on to create the next cycle of insanity.

        and that is precisely why she’s so much fun to watch!

    • Helena (Sexy Baconface) says:

      I think she actually spends MORE time outside that ham-handedly performed “preppy princess” persona than inside it. She’s done things that were far more vulgar and “non-princessy” than this most recent nonsense, usually very publicly and emanating imbecile pride.

    • Hunter Gorham says:

      “Meet Julia Allison, one of the most hated girls on the internet, who naturally has landed herself a reality show. I have to admit that I only knew of her vaguely before the show aired, so I was going into the show with an open heart, mind, and blog. After having to endure her annoying behavioral tics for five minutes, however, I can understand why the internet has been taking a dump on her face for the past five years because SHE’S ANNOYING AS HELL. There’s this insufferable infantile quality to her. Like, she’s 30, but her personality became frozen in junior high, along with her fashion sense. I just imagine her running around her bedroom in a tutu, scribbling hearts on her notebook, and blasting “This is the story of a girl…” by Nine Days. She has Peter Pan syndrome, so much so that she’s already resorted to using fillers on her face, which make her look freakish and always in a state of manic euphoria.”

  57. Albie Quirky says:

    So, on Camp Ideate, I have no idea how any of these people will be able to stand Julie’s nonsensical babble for a second. I mean yeah, grift and woo abound, but these are people who know how to science and shit.

    How on Earth did she hook up with these folks? Did she buy her way in with a big cash contribution?

      So much science that they think it’s cool to smoke. Why hello thar 1964!

      • Albie Quirky says:

        I just assumed that was weed, which doesn’t fuck up your lungs.

        • stalker is the new very meandering home intruder says:

          looks pretty pristinely rolled to me.

          And ??????? wtf Albie. Any smoke is bad for your lungs.

          • Prof. F Camping Prof. F Camping says:

            um yeah, gotta agree with Stalker here.
            any smoking = no bueno.

          • Albie Quirky says:

            No, the guy who published the original “weed is as bad for your lungs as tobacco” research much beloved of DARE programs everywhere did a huge longitudinal study that showed otherwise in 2006. Another big longitudinal study showed no increased risk for other pulmonary issues, like emphysema.

          • Albie Quirky says:

            PS—I haven’t smoked weed in 25 years. This isn’t stoner special pleading, it’s just following the science.

          • Prof. F Camping Prof. F Camping says:

            also, it’s easy to make yourself sound like you “know how to science and shit” when you write a vague-ass bio (ok, one dude does appear to have a legit PhD). these people do have more can-do or know-how than julie, but ultimately it’s all kind of shady useless BS. like, “off the grid nepali villages” do not need a shipping container full of 3D printers and drones to make a business, that’s just retarded.

          • stalker is the new very meandering home intruder says:

            Smoking a marijuana cigarette deposits four times more tar in the lungs than smoking an equivalent amount of tobacco.

            I think not finding increased evidence of lung cancer =/= “not fucking up your lungs”

            And I DO smoke weed on the regular so I’d be on your side of the theoretical fence, were we arguing from emotion.

          • Prof. F Camping Prof. F Camping says:

            Albie, thanks for the links. It sounds like marijuana can lead to respiratory symptoms, but the evidence is still not in for whether smoking weed leads to emphysema and COPD and lung malignancies (unlike with tobacco use, which is known to lead to those conditions).

          • stalker is the new very meandering home intruder says:

            I think we can all agree that Camp Ideate is a campful of Idiots.

          • Tremendous Liar; Donkey Repugnant IS NOT PREGNANT says:

            If one were going through blunts at the rate at which some smokers use tobacco, one might have worries other than one’s respiratory health.

          • Albie Quirky says:

            Agree that this group includes a bunch of woo-sters, but compared to Julie, they’re all Richard Feynman and Marie Curie.

            As for the smoking stuff, yeah, nobody really knows but they know that what they used to think they knew didn’t add up, yes? So we all muddle along and make our best calls based on the conflicting information as best we can. I get too dogmatic about my opinions sometimes, and truly appreciate the pushback.

            The whole “conflicting studies” things reminds me of one of my very favorite websites ever.

      This summer one of my friends was shacking up with a hippy chick. He’s an OMGfounder of a marketing/media company but has a little bit of hippy in him so they got along great.

      As a book reviewer myself, this shit makes me tremble with rage.

      • Jack the Bulldog says:

        Me too, and the first person I thought of when reading the piece was our Donk, if she can get off her raft ass and strike while the Mess Despised iron is hot. Wait, NO ONE saw that shitshow, right? And yet Amy & Emily both have books out. Slothful Donkey is Slothful, even when a task rabbit is doing her job for her.

  59. Cowboys & Brayliens says:

    I’d like to start a pool: number of tweets/facebook posts by The Donk while she’s at Burning Man.

    My guess is… 8.

    • Malformed Face says:

      I’m with you, she cannot stay away. Nothing is worth doing unless your 75,000 Afghani friends know about it.

      Also, how is it staying away from technology/being unplugged if she’s taking 8,000 photos on her iPhone????

    • Catfish & Sweet Potatoes For Dessert says:

      Excuse you! Burn Out Man is all about ART and sharting (typo and it stays) is her ART.

      • pearipathetic donkey says:

        This is accurate. Didn’t you see she had to get tp at Walmart? I’m sure she did a cleanse in order to fit into her BM costumes.

    • Ba-donk-a-donk says:

      * that was a typo, it was supposed to be donk-a-donk not don’t, but then again she is an epic “DON’T”. Yea I like that better, Donk-a-Don’t.

    • Tremendous Liar; Donkey Repugnant IS NOT PREGNANT says:

      There were a couple boring chat sessions with Donkey a year or two ago, and she’s dropped by a few times to leave comments to the effect of “you’re wrong and bullies, and I’m really nice,” but, thankfully, she stays clear of our basement. A few months ago, she tweeted that she was going to start commenting here a lot, but nothing ever came of it.

      • Who do you think you are? says:

        Oh man, I forgot about that threat/promise. I don’t remember what it would have corresponded to in the Mess Oflives filming timeline (her meeting with Lalalalala?) but we all agreed to ignore her completely. Then she never showed.

  61. ShesJustStupid says:

    Looks like it’s gearing up to be nice and dusty for her tomorrow. Wonder how the tent is holding up? She’s probably squatting in someone’s RV.

    • Catfish & Sweet Potatoes For Dessert says:

      Close. She went for a van. And that must be her $1750 minder, Ali Shantitown

      • Tremendous Liar; Donkey Repugnant IS NOT PREGNANT says:

        Funny how the price of a good raping + a Cheesy Skillet tweet just about exactly buy Donkey a trip to Burning Man.

    • Barking Mad, Intel Advisor says:

      Nice and dusty tomorrow, you say? Just in time for Julie’s big day, Tutu Tuesday! Even though she’s off-line, the laughs just keep rolling in.

      I agree about squatting in someone else’s RV. You know she’s braying to everyone around her about her terrible let-down trying to rent one.

      • A Donkey is an Ass says:

        I shudder to think how obnoxious she is at this type of gathering. Not just because of the braying and whining and grifting. But can you imagine how annoyed people are going to be about the fact she’ll cause them to break the “no judgement in Black Rock City” mantra? They can try to fight it, but they’ll judge her…poorly. Which will just make them more annoyed. She’ll overcompensate. More annoyed. It’s a vicious cycle.

        • Albie Quirky says:

          It’s a vicious cycle.

          Which she’ll name Pink Cupcake Princess Tiara, yes? Because cycles always need a cutesy name.

          • A Donkey is an Ass says:

            Which will just piss them off more until someone punches her in the uterus. Then she’ll bray about how Burning Man “used to be better.”

    • mcakez: Strange Puss = Sexually Delicious! says:

      Oh man, at the risk of more ridicule, a couple of my friends are part of the theme camp that created that giant chair seen in the first picture.

      One of them has been mentioned here before — he got drunk and watched a few episodes Miss Advised with me one night, and provided hilarious commentary. He has probably forgotten it by now, but one of his professed Burning Man goals was to pee on her fuzzy platforms if he saw her. I should have told him where she was camping.

  63. MissAssvice says:

    So goat soap had a cialis crisis before she left for burning man? That’s my take on it that he could not get it down. He probably needs it to get it up with Donkey.

    As far as the burn, Donkey in a tent, when winds are going to be bad and there is a particularly good chance for horrific monsoon activity. That is karma. Bwahaha

      I hate Patch.com. My brother was offered a job editing one of those and he considered it (not so much work in the journalism world after all) but turned it down in favor of going freelance. Every article I read from one of those things confirms my opinion that my brother is a genius.

        From the crap-Patch article: “I would get into relationships that weren’t quite right for me because I believed that I didn’t deserve any better.” Right, having Jack McCain as a boyfriend was a real step down, settling for less than she really deserved because she didn’t love herself enough.

    Desperate to be famous and fast approaching her expiration date, Allison was restless. She pestered Bravo executives by email, offered sexual favors to producers, stalked Ashley Tisdale and was an all around nuisance until, after a lot of begging, she finally persuaded them to shoot a pilot.
