Julia talks dishes on her fabulous dinner party and the infamous checklist song.

on Jul 24, 20120

Well hello there, friends!

PROMMM! Oh wait, wait, sorry, we’re done with that date. Damn it! Back to reality. Or reality TV, that is. (Wah wahhh.)

So, where were we? Oh, yes. Andrew and I had just gone on a rather epic first date involving tulle and tiaras and tuxedos (all the things that make life great), and two things happened: A) he didn’t run away screaming and B) he actually kissed me. A revelation! My god, we’re six episodes in and this is my first kiss. It’s like I’m 14 again. Geez.

Except, to be honest, I still choked at the end and asked insistently if he would call me (slaps self). Baby steps, people. Baby steps.

He did call, many times. He called and he emailed and he texted, and I called and emailed and texted right back. When we saw each other again after that, it was sweet and rather magical, and certainly the most connected I’ve felt to anyone since my ex, Jack.

More than anything, I was smitten with his musical talents -- he’s one of the most brilliant singer/songwriter/guitarists I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting. We’re not talking about strumming a little to get a girl into bed. We’re talking about a full out Gift from God, caps intended. I give respect where respect is due, and when he plays guitar for me, I go into a bliss bubble.

Maybe it’s because I never did that “musician” thing in college, but I finally in that moment got why women throw their panties on stage. It’s sexy as HELL. More than that, at least with Andrew, it’s sexy and spiritual. The son of a former nun (seriously, you can’t make this s--t up), he writes the most touching, spiritually-connected, folksy songs (check them out at YouTube.com/MCJellyD). My favorites are Heaven, Ghost, and Run Run Girl. When I got very sick earlier this year, Andrew recorded his own rendition of “Amazing Grace” (one of my all-time favorite songs) and sent it to me. I must have listened to it a hundred times.

So a rerun of "Alien"--the first one, comes on,and it starts that scene, the one where they are all sitting down to dinner after the monster releases that guy he was attached to.  I sort of hold my breath and scrunch down in my chair, because I know what's coming, and I'm powerless to stop it.. I cover my eyes; it's just too scary and sickening to keep watching something that has such an awful, visceral effect on me.

 

Finally, I change channels. The dinner espisode of  "Miss-Advised" comes on, and it starts that scene, the one where they were at dinner, after Julia has released that guy she was attached to on the phone. She goes to open the door, and I hold my breath and scrunch down in my chair, because I know what's coming, and I'm powerless to stop it. I cover my eyes;  it's just too...........

 

I change the channel back to "Alien."  It's not nearly as scary.  :)

Julia - you are like my best friend.  Dont let the haters matter to you.  You are BETTER than them.

I have to say, I didnt like you at first, and by the end of the second episode I became like a total 100 % fan.  Dont give up the fight - any man would be so lucky to have you.  Dont give up Julia.

Julia!  You are so funny, and so honest.  Your ex is pretty great too :) SF has all the good guys!

I do want to like you...but I find myself cringing while watching some of your antics. Like that punching this Andrew guy in the arm w/ all your might on the couch. It's like 'Elaine' on "Seinfeld" doing her {"SHUT UP+ PUSH"} But that was meant be surreal sitcom with over the top quirky characters. If this your real life...you need to tone it down. Both physically and vocally.  There's fine line between quirky and obnoxious - & you are teetering on the latter.

 Hi Jewels, I hope you don't mind me calling you that! You are so precious! But your aren't acting very smart. Guys don't like fluffy brunettes. They make exceptions for blondes only.

You can be all of the things you are but you need to be a bit smarter.  Do you know what it means to be a tease?  That's you! Get your head in the game, girl and really apply yourself rather than listen to your inner child. Remember act like a woman but think like a man.

Hey Julia, love your check list, but #59 should be #1. LOL sometimes #59 is the reason you fall in love in the first place. Right?

You are adorable. Totally relate to you. It seems like you already know this, but I gotta say it : you come on too strong. It's okay (and necessary) to hold some of your thoughts and feelings about the guy you like to yourself. You are way too fabulous of a person to need to be so stressed about finding love. Your guy is out there; don't scare him off:)

I love the show, you are such a pretty girl, but I have to be totally honest. you are intense which is OK but not when it comes to men.... Last nights episode was especially hard to watch, I was so embarrassed for you I literally was cringing on how you acted first needy on the phone with the guy begging him to come to the dinner party and secondly when you threw yourself on the floor when the guy arrived! LOVE YOURSELF GIRL YOU HAVE SO MUCH GOING AND THE ABILITY TO HELP OTHERS. But you cant help others until you find yourself and heal whats wrong, we are all humans. I wish you the best I will keep watching the show!

You're my fave of the three.  Charming, fun-loving, it's a joy to watch you on your quest.  If I could ask one thing, please, please stop bringing up your ex-boyfriends.  It adds nothing to the show.  You seem to find enough joy in present day than to have to keep reflecting over some guy in your past.  Onward and upward!

I just read your checklist.  Re: #69, you were engaged to Jon, so it hardly seems fair that you would hold a prior engagement against a guy.

So you're just totally skipping over the alarming scene when Andrew showed up unexpectedly and you rolled around on the floor as though it was your husband returning from Iraq? Not going to mention that at all? That was one of the most disturbing moments I've ever seen on reality television.

 @epila Thank you SO much. And I'll say, Taylor is THE BEST.  I wish ALL of my ex-lationships were like that!  (they aren't, sigh)

 From the first episode I totally noticed something was wrong, that whole double date on the beach with that tall, dark and handsome guy was once again hard to watch she is so annoying i hate to say it, since she is so pretty and promising but wow I really cant beleive BravoTV would have someone on a show that is like that ... how us latins say QUE PENA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 @Dawn_Key - This is true, I was engaged.  But I was just thinking - in a perfect world - that I would prefer he hadn't gotten down on one knee to another woman.

 @Francine25 - Honey, if THAT was the most disturbing scene you've seen on reality television, I think you've watched approximately 50 seconds of reality tv. ;-)And really, who cares?  I was completely surprised, and I tend to be enthusiastic.  If over the top enthusiasm disturbs you, I'd hate to see how you react to, say, the fans from a winning football team.

 @ggmiami - Just remember, everything is exaggerated on a tv show! Reactions, interactions, etc.  I definitely have a strong personality, but it's usually harmless - except to my own ability to find love!

 HOnestly. I think that she is totally messed up and that she should not be on TV its gut wrenching to watch!
