“Miss Advised” Is Even More Embarrassing In Episode 2
Oh, where to begin, where to begin? “Miss Advised,” Bravo’s new show about dating experts who don’t actually know anything about dating, started episode two with good news for unemployed dating columnist Julia Allison — she’s been “offered” a “job” “writing” for Elle! After working as a “journalist” for 10 years, this is her dream job! What luck! What’s not mentioned, of course, is that her “job” with Elle was arranged for her by Bravo. Duh, whatever, the arrangement is exposure for Elle so I can’t hate on anyone for pulling strings. Except that even a fake-ish gig is too much for Julia Allison to handle, who breaks down in tears after her totally cringe-worthy call with her new editor, who requested that she come up with some ideas for her column. The stress and fear that she might fail is too much. Why did her mom have to set such high expectations for success by being a speech writer for Nixon?
Okay, and now to end on a sexy note. Emily, the sex radio host from San Francisco, is on a date with some rapper guy name Ray Luv. I actually kind of like Ray Luv, and here is why. Dude at least comes off as authentic and not one single person on this show so far has seemed remotely real to me except for him. Sure, he took Emily to a strip club for their first date. And yes, he encouraged her to slap some stripper’s ass. But Ray Luv, in all his inappropriateness, at least was being legit. Legit gross, but hey, I’ll take it.
