Don’t you dare even suggest it, Skankatron! If Donkey hasn’t left by Monday morning, Cindy McCain will escort her personally to the airport.
Imagine going from this …
… to this.
Enjoy your delusional tribe, Donkey, and those smelly DJs! Can’t wait to see the footage of the master interviewer at work. Self-proclaimed visionaries are so much more interesting after they’ve ingested a little aya or several pieces of cannabis candy from ganja goddesss Shannon Drake.
You take care, dear heart.
Update: Yet another ex tells us just how low Julia Allison Baugher is willing to go. Isn’t it amazing that she’s OMG! friends with all of her exes?! Really. She is too. It’s the truth. Honest. Hey, do you want a C&D from Peter Baugher?

She invited me to the Dominican Republic in 2007. There was a small film festival going on at the resort and she’d persuaded the organizers to cover the flight and/or the room. At this time she was regularly on TV and if you Googled her seemed like a relatively sane up-and-coming NYC media person. So access to interesting events was a normal thing.
On one of the nights, she asked me to join her at the film featival’s “red carpet” area and to bring my camera. She said I’d need to film her interviewing this one guy (who I presumed was the event organizer). I explained to her that my Canon PowerShot, though adequate for Beachtime Disney Princess Lip Dubs, wasn’t really a “red carpet interview” camera, especially because it lacked an external microphone jack. She said it didn’t matter. “But the footage will be unusable!” … Still didn’t matter.
She dragged me up there and we filmed her asking basic superficial questions to this important guy for 5 minutes. I couldn’t even hear their conversation over the ambient noise, so the pinhole mic in my digital point-and-shoot certainly couldn’t, either. I’m not sure I even bothered hitting record.
I’m not the scammer type, and I found the whole act disgusting and confusing. I felt super dirty, and the fact that she was completely OK with it was mystifying. She basically lied her way into a vacation, on several levels:
1) I am a legit media person and my involvement in your fest will help it
2) I am shooting a usable interview right now
3) My interest in your fest during this interview is genuine
A triple lie!!
To this day, I’ve never met someone more willing to just openly scam. In her mind, it seems, any behavior is justified if it advances her personal cause (which itself is never justified). That’s easy to grasp from outside but witnessing it from inside her private sphere was just terrifying. Made me understand where truly evil acts could come from. The sort of mind that could justify any behavior and never felt remorse, only feigned it, only when caught.
Ah, yes. I’ve also witnessed Julie to stoop to unbelievable lengths to get what she wants. And if she doesn’t get it? There will be hell to pay for those who’ve disappointed the Wilmette goddess.
And Redacted, let me take this opportunity to say you did a fine job in the well-directed CREATIVE CONTROL, which did feature a few characters who reminded me of the social circle that Donkey was attempting to clomp into during the gawker daze.
