‘Miss Advised’ Star Julia Allison: Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth Won’t Last (EXCLUSIVE)
Naturally, we asked that very question to dating advice columnist Julia Allison last week while she was promoting her new Bravo reality series, Miss Advised.
Her response: “Of course not!”
As she explained to Celebuzz:
I would say that about most Hollywood relationships. And it’s not even entirely their fault. There are just forces greater than them working against the strength of their union. There’s almost nothing they can do about it, unless one of them [stops being] an A-list star; pulls a Paul Newman. And I don’t see either of them wanting to do that anytime soon.
“Last is a relative term,” she added. “Will they last 10 years? That would be remarkable. I doubt it. I would give it five or less. But really, [it’s hard for] any celebrity relationship. I thought Demi [Moore] and Ashton [Kutcher] were going to last.”
On Miss Advised, fans get a closer look into Allison’s professional and personal life when she makes the big move from Chicago to Los Angeles. On her list: finding a boyfriend, which she admits is inevitably challenging in any major city.
“Men [in Los Angeles] are trained out here to be naturally amorphous,” she said, of her experience dating in a new city. “They’re not lent to definitive plans, or to say, ‘We’re dating,’ or to being directed in their courtship. They don’t say, ‘I’ll pick you up at 8.’ It’s just like, ‘Do you want to hang out?’ It’s a very surfer mentality that’s very lackadaisical. It’s the antithesis of New York.”
“Men in L.A. flake constantly,” she added.
Meanwhile, the show — which co-stars Amy Laurent and Emily Morse — also dives into Allison’s admittedly rocky past with the Internet, during which her columns were attacked by numerous sites and commenters. (At one point, a popular site referred to her as the third most-hated person on the Internet.)
To this day, Allison says she is still affected by the experience.
“It was a formative experience of my adult life, in the sense that I felt that I was unfairly maligned, and I just felt completely misunderstood,” she said. “And deeply hurt … I couldn’t understand why people hated me, or I couldn’t understand why they didn’t know that I was just joking around.”
“Is it in the past? To an extent, absolutely,” she added. “This docu-series functioned as therapy for me, which I was not expecting … Later on in the show, one of the experts I go to brings up my experience with Internet vitriol, and it was incredibly painful. It was a really difficult time for me. I didn’t want to address it. But you can’t heal unless you bring stuff up and deal with what happened. I think there was a lot of self-hatred on my part, and I think was blocking me from having a healthy relationship.”
Tonight, Miss Advised will mark Allison’s big debut on Bravo, something that has come this close to happening on multiple occasions. In fact, as she revealed to Celebuzz, she was once commissioned to be on a roundtable talk show alongside another famous Bravolebrity: Bethenny Frankel.
The talk show, of course, never made it to air; however, Allison still remembers her experience working with Frankel rather fondly.
“I’ve known [Bethenny] for a couple of years,” Allison recalled. “She has great hair. I didn’t have in-depth conversations with her or anything … She knew exactly what she wanted, and she was perfectly coiffed.”
“I was just excited to be there,” she added with a laugh.
Miss Advised airs Monday nights at 10/9c on Bravo.
