Truly “Miss Advised”: The Season Ends With A Whimper & A Not-So-Exciting “Announcement”

Well, I suppose it's a good thing that the first (and probably last) season of "Miss Advised" has come to an end, as the show has been giving me nightmares! Last night, after watching the finale, I dreamt that I totally Julia Allison-ed at work today. That is to say, I overslept, missed all of…

Truly “Miss Advised”: Julia Allison Gives A Second Date Blow Job, Gets Dumped

Before I get into parsing the insanity of "Miss Advised"'s penultimate episode, a note about Emily Morse. Last night, as I was livetweeting all the action -- I am so dedicated, y'all -- I noted that I use Emily's scenes as time to refill my drink (multiple are necessary to get through this shitshow) or…

Truly “Miss Advised”: Prom Dates, Awkward Breakups, A Boring Dinner Party & 10 Million Signs That He’s Just Not That Into You

Oh. holy shit, where to begin. "Miss Advised," the show about two mentally unstable shitbirds and one relatively cool chick who is probably wondering how she got roped into this mess. Well, I missed recapping last week's episode because of our malware disaster and also I couldn't make clips of the show because the sound…

“Miss Advised”‘s Julia Allison To Speak At Social Media Conference

Tearing one's  hair out over the existence of Julia Allison is Amelia's beat at The Frisky and God forbid that I tread on her territory. But I just couldn't not mention how the "Miss Advised" star will be speaking at Business Insider's Social Media ROI conference in September. Julia Allison has used social media —…

“Miss Advised”: Desperation, Polyamory & So Much Goddamn Pink

Ohhhhhhh, last night's episode of "Miss Advised" was so epically cringe-worthy that I have practically clipped the entire thing (shh, don't tell Bravo!). And it wasn't just Julia Allison who was providing the LULZ; Amy was fantastically bunny-boiling and Emily, who I actually think is quite likable, introduced a new friend, Polyamorous Kissing Sexpert Reid.

Julia Allison Breaks Down — “They Call Me Donkey” — On “Miss Advised”

I watched last night's episode of "Miss Advised" from the American Airlines terminal bar at San Francisco's airport while tossing back three glasses of prosecco before my red eye flight. It was really quite perfect. I had been looking forward to this episode, in as much as it's possible to look forward to an episode…

“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…

“Miss Advised”: The Show That Will Make You Dislike Julia Allison As Much As I Do

Full (super long) disclosure: I went into watching the debut episode of "Miss Advised," Bravo's latest reality show about three "dating experts" who are unlucky in love, already not a fan of Julia Allison, one of the program's three stars. Allison, for those of you lucky enough to have gone this long without knowing her,

The Soapbox: A Response To Julia Allison’s Op-Ed Addressed To Women Moving To NYC, From A Woman Who Once Moved To NYC

This weekend, The New York Post printed an op-ed titled “A warning to a new generation of women — don’t let ‘Sex and the City’ ruin your life,” written by "internet celebrity" Julia Allison and her friend Julia Price. At first I was like “huh,” and then I skimmed it and was like “UGH,” and then I…

Writing About Your Personal Life Online, A Cautionary Tale

Writing about one's personal life on the internet for a living is a tricky thing. We Frisky staffers, for example, have each had to decide for ourselves how much of our private lives and personal thoughts we're willing to put out there and to set boundaries accordingly. I, for one, decided long ago that certai…

Crying After Sex, Really?

On the most recent webisode of NonSociety's "TMI Weekly" -- that's the internet TV show from ego blogger/"dating expert" Julia Allison and her posse -- things got a little weepy. The gals -- Julia, Mary, and Meghan -- were discussing crying during/after sex and how doing so is "all good, but never fun to deal…

Should Weight Never Be Discussed Just Because It’s Triggering For Those With Eating Disorders?

Julia Allison, former dating columnist, occasional "It's On With Alexa Chung" guest, and subject of snark from yours truly, is issuing herself a fitness challenge! The challenge: to lose 10 pounds in 30 days. She'll be documenting the whole process on her "lifecast" so that the accountability she feels towards her readers will guilt-trip her…

Real Dating Advice For The Technological Age

Yesterday, I did an interview with CNN Live about Leonora Epstein’s article, “Automatic Online Dating Dealbreakers.” (You can watch it after the jump, if you’re so inclined, but please know the style department will be doing more about my hideous under-eye circles and lighting the next time around.) That same day, Julia Allison, blogging “sexpert,”…

Who Should Be The New NonSociety Girl?

Yesterday, a breaking news item of epic importance tore its way across the blogosphere. Mary Rambin, the blond, bebobbed, bubbly third portion of the NonSociety crew, was leaving the fold. After we picked ourselves up off the floor, wiped away our tears, and told ourselves everything really would be OK if we just prayed a…

Five Totally Fake Publicity Stunts***

***According to me We've already discussed the clever use of girl-on-girl as a go-to publicity stunt for celebrities. But it's not the only shady tactic used by Hollywood to garner interest in stars whose popularity is waning or in film, tv, and music projects that might otherwise go unnoticed. After the jump, five recent "celebrity"…

Fail: Mary Rambin Compares Cosmetic Surgery To Abortion

Mary Rambin, part of the "three-headed blogging Hydra" that is Non Society (which, cheekily, made our list of the best female bloggers of 2008), is arguably the most absurd and vapid of the bunch. While her fellow "lifecasters" have moments of ingenuity, intelligence and creativity, Mary bugs me because her sole contribution to the No…

Bad Advice: Julia Allison Wants You To Withhold Sex

NonSociety blogger and Time Out New York columnist Julia Allison posed a question in her site the other day -- What is a "normal" length of time to wait before having sex with a new partner? -- and proposed an answer: My methodology (for women, of course): if you think you’ve waited long enough, wait

Is Internet Fame All It’s Cracked Up To Be?

Wired.com recently created an algorithm widget-thingamajig called Celebrity Meter, which will tell you exactly how internet famous you are by tallying the number of webpages linking to you and how many friends you have on various social networks. But before you go running off to calculate whether you’re famous enough to need an alias the…
