Julia Allison was hated on the Internet years before her show, Miss Advised, premiered on the Bravo network. So one would think that, perhaps with all the time gone by, maybe she’d have gotten a little more bearable and could be mildly enjoyable to watch. Bravo must have seen something in her, right?
Turns out, expecting that is making the rookie mistake of putting too much faith in the network that’s famous for its countless Real Housewives shows. Allison is an insufferable television personality, and she makes it even worse by trying, so obviously, to be some sort of “real-life Carrie Bradshaw” in both her personal and professional lives. Unfortunately, it looks like no one told her that when women try to become Carrie Bradshaw-like, they become the most annoying people on the planet.
Case-in-point: In Miss Advised's pilot episode, Julia goes out on a date with a guy she met online. There’s not much chemistry and she realizes that from the get-go, which is fine, but then she fails to actually tell him. Instead, she asks him if he will help her move boxes the next day, because she just moved to Los Angeles and is too cheap to hire help. He does, and then when he enquires about a second date, Julia doesn’t really respond until later, when she calls him to “break-up” even though they’ve only been on one date.
These are Taylor Swift levels of dating crazy. It’s not a good look on anyone, especially someone like Julia who, at 31, is absolutely old enough to know better.
