The 2013 Year In Review: Michael Arrington is an Alleged Rapist and Beater of Women, So, Naturally, Julia Allison Makes It All About Herself




It wouldn’t be a year in review without Julia Allison inserting herself into someone else’s rape. First it was that CBS Lady who got Benghazi’d, then it was her mother, now it was that chick who thought crying rape to Facebook instead of the police and her former sister Meghan Asha.

Long story short, Michael Arrington may or may not have beaten and raped his girlfriend. Julia Allison saw this story and said, this story needs a little dash of MEEEEEEE, so she ran to Gawker and claimed that Michael Arrington beat her former sister/Pointy McPointerson Meghan Asha is if she were familial with the matter. That’s all fine and dandy, Gawker trades in tips such as these. Where it went all wrong was that Julia Allison had to be all Julia Allison about it. 

When Gawker reported that Julia Allison confirmed rumors that Arrington also smacked Asha around, Julia threw a hissy fit, claiming that she never did such a thing and was harangued by the media.

I have been harassed by no less than seven reporters about these incidents, including Gawker’s writers, including Adrian Chen. To ALL of them I said I was not willing to comment. I NEVER witnessed any physical abuse, and I don’t know why Gawker is alleging I did. I don’t know what happened between Meghan Asha and Michael Arrington, and I never will.

It is never okay to abuse anyone, but it is ALSO not okay to report stories when your “evidence” is shoddy and/or made up. Gawker has “reported” stories using absolute crap before, and they have no conscience whatsoever about doing so.

I have moved away from New York, I got my life back, I am happy now, I have moved on. I told Gawker to leave me alone and leave me out of this. Why am I not surprised they didn’t respect me enough to do so?

That’s all fine and dandy too, because Gawker does indeed employ some shitty reporters, like Adrian Chen (except not anymore!), so it’s easy to believe they were making shit up, except Donkey wouldn’t shut up about it. So Gawker played their hand by releasing the text messages Julia sent to two Gawker employees, including Adrian Chen.

So, yes, Gawker was forced to throw Julia Allison under the bus and back it up a few times for good measure. Donkey pissed people off left and right, including Mr. Paultato, who also felt the need to insert himself into this story by throwing his former friend Julia under another bus.

I’d say this was glorious, but Michael Arrington is still stomping around the streets of Silicon Valley and is not rotting in jail for being a Rapey McRapeBurger.


  1. It’s sooo odd…her random silences and then sudden bursts of memememememe. Thocial Media Sethpert! Really building brand, she is.

  2. This was probably one of the highlights of her year. Reporters talking to her, being quoted/mentioned in Gawker, feeling like she mattered again (not that she ever did before). Probably distracted her from being a random failed nobody (who is fat now).

  3. Mikey won’t hesitate to sue a bitch. I wonder if Petey had to settle out of court on this one? Combined with the European extravaganza this year sounds like it was an expensive one for Dad$ers..

    • I could never understand how she felt comfortable using that line. She wasn’t an engineer, programmer, just a talking head saying a lot of nothing. I wasn’t around from the beginning, but did people in the industry call her out on that shit?

      • Considering the brazen lies on her resume, I mean bio, and in her deranged book proposal, that shouldn’t come as a surprise.

    • That’s how I got here. As a real woman in tech, I googled her and her bubblehead lifecasting companions to find out wtf was passing for a woman in tech. And have been unable to look away.

    • That whole list of “accomplishments” was just so sad. And that she felt the need to write all that to a random commenter is pathetic and hilarious. This Arrington thing was a truly a great Donkey story, but I am disappointed she didn’t end up sued by that prick.

      • And she’s disappointed she didn’t get mentioned in the VF article about Arrington. Tries, so, hard, our donkey does.

      • He probably didn’t sue because she doesn’t have assets. Just because her father has some money, unless he can somehow be proven liable, I don’t think anyone can go after his money for what his idiot Donkey does.

        • Maybe if he set up a trust for her. But, I’d imagine we’d have heard endlessly of her ‘trust’ and it would be on her bio right under ‘tit thrust’

          • Perhaps. I don’t know the legal issues, or if a trust can be hit like that. Then again, if he set up a trust for her, she probably wouldn’t have been shilling tacky shit and wearing cheapo clothes, shoes, etc.

  4. One of the dumbest things she’s ever tried to pull off is the whole “documentary series” description of Miss Assvice. I sure hope she’s recharged her batteries to start writing her awesome book in the New Year! Can’t wait for the RV trip.

  5. hahaha the visuals of this post are awesome…………………(picturing rapey McRapeBurger ape stomping around silicon valley while julia hides in her SF nesting home in fear of going out from the thousands of paparazzi waiting to harass her and meghan pointy mcpointer pointing out where she is hiding)

  6. I got a book on happiness in me too – it’s a private only-one-edition print. As should everyone’s – she’s too retarded to understand individualism to that degree

  7. OT, but there she goes again…

    If you ever have a choice … Always – ALWAYS – pick the adventure.

    [As long as Dad$ser$ is around to pay for it.]

    • This is not LA, and you are not Julia Roberts playing a prostitute. My god, STFU. The shit this bitch finds meaningful.

      Yes, your adventurous life of not having a job and living with your gay wanna be chef boyfriend. God I envy you.

    • I choose she starts dressing better for her ‘adventures.’ Real clothing, not costumes, on loan from devin’s cross-dressing closet. Christmas was quite, but I’m guessing her passive-aggressiveness towards devin about still not being engaged, was off the charts!!! See: JA FB profile picture, sans devin.

      • She removed from her page (but not the gallery) that fauxto of the two of them … I’m betting that he made her do so … is “happiness” defined by having a gay bf who won’t even acknowledge you? I am betting not.

        • It’s still showing up on her page. She removed it as her main FB background photo or whatever and replaced it with the one of just her.

          • What she posted on the 25th isn’t showing on her page when I look. Maybe you’re talking about the one that *is* showing on her page, from the 22nd? Derpin ain’t in that one.

          • It’s still there for me. These are her three latest posts on her page (the second edited profile photo on the 25th is her with Devin):

          • Mwegwwwynnn’s comment that refers to her as “mama…” I know it could mean *nothing*, especially from that lunatic… But what if… What if….

  8. Here’s what I was thinking: How many people on the planet other than Putin and Rush Limbaugh types have said or done several things annually that they should be horrified and embarrassed by? That should have caused them to seriously re-evaluate what type of shitty human being they are?

    There are several of these episodes every year by this dumb asshole, even in 2013, when she was relatively “off the grid.”

    Oh honey.

  9. What the HELL is on Rapey McRapeBurger’s face? Clearly some sort of bronzer/concealer/spackle of the absolute wrong shade. It is to vomit.

    • He is so fucking revolting. The hardest part for me in believing this story is that anyone dates him. I don’t care how much money he has. You couldn’t pay me enough to have sex with that. Gross.

      • You wouldn’t believe the icky, makes-your-skin-crawl guys who get sex because they have money. I know of a couple in which he looks like a child molester and she’s a white trash slut with a horse face and aversion to washing her Ronald McDonald hair. But he buys her expensive gifts and takes her on fancy vacations. So it’s assumed he’s getting anal, and almost certainly fulfillment of some really gross fantasies.

        • Hey, what’s wrong with anal?

          Also yeah, generally when I fuck someone I have to be attracted to them. But I am also the kinda person who would rather date a sexy attractive artist without a ton of money then some ugly douche with money and/or power. I’m crazy like that.

          He’s worse than Elsberg and Debbie combined IMO. Not only is he fat, he’s also ugly. I can’t.

          • I have an artist/creatives fetish. Also a euro fetish. At times I wish I had a money fetish, but I prefer to earn my own, because i am not a dumb bitch and I never want to be reliant on a man, like ever.

          • Yep. I have a job and support myself, so I don’t need a white knight. Not impressed by rich, self-tanner-using, golf-shirt-wearing, automatic-transmission-Porsche-driving, vodka-martini-drinking, Silicon Valley d-bags. Arrington is vomitty.

          • All his features are crowded into the middle of his face, like they’re trying to escape from his ears. People like that are doomed to look like Humpty Dumpty, which is not a good look for actual humans.

  10. Hey you guys.. glad to see you! I came here last night and it said “Page suspended” or some shit and was a bit freaked. Whew! And the alt address just-in-case is on my crap ole broke computer. Anyway, much relieved. xo

  11. My favorite part of this story is that Asha just blatantly ignores her texts for days. “Babe?” She’s so gross. How can anyone stand to be around her for even 5 minutes, I do not know. Besides her boyfriend who is clearly at least slightly mentally challenged and the world’s biggest dork/loser.

  12. This Arrington incident in particular fascinates me because it truly highlights that JA is a pathological liar. A dear friend of mine growing up was a liar like this — the scariest part of it was that she seemed to believe her own lies even when caught in the act. When we’d confront her on them she always seemed genuinely confused. I suspect Julia is the same way. I totally think she spilled the beans to gawker and then believed the denial she issued. It’s a sickness, really – just one of many this chick has.

    Anyway….choose adventure!!!

    • “adventure” = bronc a wallet, no doubt. Just spin the deceit & bray loudly.

      You’ve described my childhood (now ex) friend’s pathological lying, & now that I am witness to another pathological-liar-in-the-making, I think a lot of it has to do w/ one’s innate need to weigh-in , no matter how clueless they are to actual facts, as some dire need to (a) supply an answer, & (b) be heard. I keep trying to help a little kid understand that it is okay to say “I don’t know”, but the mixed signals she gets from family (demanding an answer that they don’t even listen to & never calling the child out on blatant lies) wins out, always.

  13. Brayella – in my ex-friend’s case I think she was desperate for attention. She came from a large, drama-filled family and her lies made her important; they helped her to matter. I suspect JA is the same – she feels the need to be a part of every story, to matter and be heard. And this desire has manifested itself into an illness. Honestly, JA is a fascinating case study. She’s also an asshole.

    • That is similar to my ex-friend; she comes from a family of only two siblings, but her family life was chock-full of histrionics (dad had a Napoleon complex & was very blustery & volatile, so she picked up on being over-the-top demonstrative).

      The young child I referred to, well, she is everyone’s little darling & can do no wrong, so it’s always about how cute she is, hence the center-of-attn M.O. at all costs that never gets addressed.

      All that ^ is fascinating to me, since I came up as the youngest of a bunch of sibs &, while I stop short of saying I was “neglected” (I wasn’t), I sure as hell never got to ‘call the shots’ & cause my parents world to revolve around me — just a different era, from when kids were seen but not heard, I guess? — it definitely taught me to do for myself to get what I wanted (but in a good way: strong work ethic, etc).

    • Mine, too! The former JIML came from a smallish, but well-known, family (2 parents, 1 sibling), but she was the only one who wasn’t accomplished. Now that you guys bring it up, I bet a big part of her compulsive lying was for the same reason. I thought it’s because she’s a cunt. Well, that too.

    • my daughter has been glommed onto at school by a junior monster in the making

      i would have recognized it as odd without the goings on here; thru this lens, it is the beginning phase of the disorder(s): drama, lying, screaming, crying, we’re BFF, we’re like sisters, repeat

    • a propos! i finally read Gone Girl. very interesting psychology; hosebeast psycho. also finished A Hologram for the King. quite good too, weak and incomplete ending though, i felt. i’ve got a hold on The Circle, hope to get that soon. good books recs, thanks RBD cats!

      • Three recent good reads:

        The Woman Upstairs
        The Goldfinch
        Dirty Love (by the author of “the House of Sand and Fog)

        • Didn’t read Dirty Love but can highly, HIGHLY recommend both the other two books – The Woman Upstairs and The Goldfinch. Both fantastic reads!

          • We have always called her Doreen Trapp in my circle as a way of mocking the hype (e.g., posed as a circus performer on a trapeze in Vogue when The Secret History was coming out), but I actually do enjoy her books immensely. I have determined that she has only written these few books over the years between/during stints in rehab. Whatever the process, I think her books are great, and The Goldfinch was my best read for the past year.

            processcase, I

          • processcase I = secret code to identify dummies who cannot control kindle keyboard, I guess.
            P.S.: so delighted to read here that Heehaw will not be in SF for NYE.

          • FLM, I am interested in your theory about rehab because I have a friend who said the same thing! Is this fact or your speculation?

          • rehab? well i have a soft spot in my heart for that so maybe i will reconsider my hatred of her and only hate her books 🙂

          • I have friendquaintances who worked with her at the Victor Hugo bookstore eons ago, and she had drinking and sniffing issues then (of course so did I, it was the Reagan Administration).

            I couldn’t get into The Little Friend at ll, but I really liked The Goldfinch. You have to love Dickens, though.

          • I lovelovelove The Secret History but I think it is a function of reading it at precisely the right time in my life. Hated The Little Friend but really enjoyed The Goldfinch – was sick in bed with a cold one weekend and couldn’t put it down between naps.

          • She has a photo on her FB saying “This is my first Christmas as a parent,” so I assume so.

            On the other hand, it’s Thorne, so maybe she meant something completely different, like “I love pie” and she just Englished wrong.

          • So dreadfully embarrassed! How did I miss the Thorne-y nupitals? Oh wait, I’ve been flying around the country and WORKING these past three weeks. Glad to have gotten out of NYC in time to have missed the donkey and her gelding.
            Re: that wedding to the mysterious Mr. Geffner–no carbon footprint?–surely Julie can offer some advice to her yenta:

            “Oh goodness the nerves are setting in about my wedding on Tuesday. I’m not nervous about getting married but nervous about the fact that I’ll be the center of attention.

            I’ve never liked parties for myself. When I was little my mother used to have to beg me to let her throw me a party. I had one when I turned 8. My 18th was a surprise.

            Help! Have any Words of advice about how to divert the nerves?”

      • Sex gargoyle and his goddess are in SF after returning from a trip to India where they posed in front of copulating statues and posted about how sexual they are.

        • Those two are gift that keeps on giving. The casual racism, the raging narcissism, the unchecked privilege. Truly a delight to people who enjoy a good face/palm.

    • Get the fuck out of the neighborhood of my new favorite hotel. On the other hand, stay out if California. So basically, get off my planet.

      PS Am drink.

  14. So, wait, how is Arrington rich? I know he’s a “tech editor” but he’s not a founder or anything, right? What am I missing?

    • He started some companies, including one that got sold off to Western Union. It’s in his Wikipedia entry.

      • No amount of money can fix ugly and soulless (MA and JA are shining examples).

      • Gotcha. Clearly I don’t care enough to read his wiki–but all I want for 2014 is a lawsuit from him to Donkey. Let’s kick this party up a notch. That being said, how would we know if he sued her? (fingers crossed)

    • he sold techcrunch to AOL and made anywhere from $15-30M

      Today I had to take a cab and was thinking about Julia Allison’s cab thing from what back when and then started thinking about this site and then Rapey McRapeBurger and I started giggling and couldn’t stop and the driver thought I was losing it…..

  15. Arrington has been known to advocate dropping out of college, stating at the 2010 UC-Berkeley Distinguished Innovator Lecture Series that “the best thing in the world is to go to Harvard for a year and drop out. Everyone knows you were smart enough to get in.”

    Donkey hates him bc she’s too stupid to get in anywhere. Also, he’s a rapist scumbag

  16. hey, some “happiness experts” were talking about how to be happy over on Al Jazeera. strange that they didn’t have Donkey on for an insightful interview.

    • “I showed y’all how to write words on a jar, which is simply cool as heck IMO. Stenciling is the new green (Black is an evil color, witches, spooky cats, etc. #fail)”

      Bwa ha ha–only future husband Sam Biddle could have come up with a Brit who hits too close to home.

    • This is gold. So glad they are tearing her a new asshole. And my god the way she mugs for the camera. What an ego maniac. You aren’t that cute honey.

      I like how she supposedly has 45K + followers on FB and there are like NO COMMENTS ON ANYTHING, and barely more than 10 likes on anything. She must be employing a full time bad comment scrubber.

      This chick is such a hot mess.

  17. Been a while since I chimed in.

    Just wanted to wish you cat peeps a very healthy and happy new year.

    Best to all in 2014!

  18. Happy New Year, everybody! Even though a donkey is quieter, we will never the donk.

    Looking forward to another year of fail and fabulous conversation. The book fail is inevitable. If she submits something, it will be dreadful. And if not, it will be the most spectacular fail of all!

    How much does it burn to be still not engaged?

      • … which will then be put off to February 1 and so it goes. Let’s hope 2014 brings us another big three along the lines of the Arrington “scandal ” (or Rapey McRapeburger), outrageous insensitivity towards a minority group, and that goddamn endless book proposal. I saw two pals in publishing when in NYC recently and they’re still laughing over the footnotes.

    • Happy New Year Everyone! Excited for all the real books coming out from those on the page. And looking forward to the excuses come from the reason for this page.

      I’m starting a ‘new’ New Year’s tradition. Pork and sauerkrat, be gone! Shoes are the ‘new’ New Year’s good luck tradition!

  19. Ok…ok…just checked donkey’s fb to see if there were any nye faxtos to laugh at and score! Did Thorney get OMG married on nye? That is the only excuse I think of for wearing such an ugly, white, mermaid dress with netting/feathered facinator on her head. Sad christmas tree in the backgroud, devin in a rented tux, saggy donkey tits with an EPIC effort to tit thrust…lololololol! Happy new year bitches!

    • Ahhh yeah! That creepy claw hand of Devin’s in back in full swing. This time it’s there to help keep her dress up. Christ, I hope her resolution is to find a fucking tailor and some taste. Dressing like the DWTS trophy, does not a trophy wife, make.

    • Wow, Thorne’s new husband is tiny. I hope they will be diminutively happy together.

      Julie Albertson’s dress is terribly unflattering. Because flattening. She never gets it right, does she?

    • Later, at the tuxedo rental place:

      “Hey boss, there’s something really weird in the pocket of this tux.”
      “What is it, Davey?”
      “I dunno. It’s green and slimy.”
      “A Brussels sprout? First time for everything, right?”
      “What the hell, in the other pocket there’s a purple horse.”
      “Ha, a My Little Pony, my daughter loves ’em. I bet his kid is wailing for her doll now.”

  20. Hilariously big head and terrifying maw in the pic of her with Thorne and groom. These are the best, Facebook worthy ones? Can you imagine the outtakes?

  21. I guess I follow Juliar on Instagram because she suddenly popped up in my feed today. She is attempting something called #365grateful and is first grateful for some really ghastly pictures of her and Devin at last night’s wedding. He looks seriously ill and she appears to be eating his face in one picture. Enjoy!

  22. U GUIZ.
