6 Reasons Julia Allison's New Bravo Show Is A Terrible Idea

Yes, this is Julia Allison.

Julia Allison—columnist, television personality, Internet entrepreneur, public speaker, unabashed social media junkie … and soon-to-be reality TV star. Say it isn’t so. 

Bravo announced 11 new reality series and two scripted projects in the works at their upfront presentation yesterday.  

While we’re intrigued by Randi Zuckerberg‘s series “Silicon Valley,” we have some qualms with another show starring, what the network refers to as, three “relationship experts” including Internet/television phenomena, Julia Allison

Here’s the premise for “Miss Advised”:

“These single relationship experts can’t seem to practice what they preach as Amy Laurent in New York, Emily Morse in San Francisco and Julia Allison in Los Angeles struggle to stay afloat in the deep end of the dating pool.”

Allison’s appearance would have been less surprising four years ago when the internet phenom was at her height.

In the promo video we hear the women drag on, er, complain, about their love lives—”I don’t believe in ‘the one,'” “Everybody’s wrong but me.” We’re no experts, but we’re pretty sure that’s not the way to land a man.

The only intrigue is seeing whether the women realise their relationship advice is a bunch of nonsense. 

Watch the promo below. The bit for “Miss Advised” is towards the end.

1. The executive producer is Ashley Tisdale.

Her resume: She's the washed-up Disney star from 'The Suite Life of Zack and Cody' who attempted, and failed at, a singing career. This is the same person who had a nose job to alleviate a deviated septum.

2. She has a 73-point checklist for her husband.

We're sorry, men.

3. She will do anything for PR.

Allison has photos of herself up on her blog dressed in a dress made of condoms for Halloween 2006. She referred to the event as Slut-O-Ween. And check out these photos of her from the Burning Man festival where she's 'dressed' as a stripper and sexy angel. Every move she makes will be ruthlessly dissected on the anti-Allison hate-blog, Reblogging Donk.

4. She memorializes every sip of alcohol she drinks on her blog.

You can view the list on her blog, here. What could possibly go wrong?

5. She actually thinks she's Carrie Bradshaw.

6. She's a product placement nightmare.

Advertisers may shy away from backing Bravo's show given Allison's past endorsement fails. Remember when she praised Apple after Sony paid her to promote VAIO laptops?

Perhaps Julia should take some pointers from these people...
