(The Covid Blog) A 49-year-old New York adulterous food writer is dead after bashing non-vaccinated people on Twitter for nearly a year.
Mrs. Julie Powell is best known for her 2005 book Julie and Julia: 365 Days, 524 Recipes, 1 Tiny Apartment Kitchen. The book was originally a blog published on Salon.com. Mrs. Powell aimed to cook all 524 recipes in author Julia Child’s 1961 best-selling book Mastering the Art of French Cooking in one year. Ms. Child passed away in 2004 at age 91, one year before Mrs. Powell’s book was published. Ms. Child was apparently unimpressed with Mrs. Powell’s work.
Judith Jones was Ms. Child’s editor.
Jones said in a July 20, 2009 Publisher’s Weekly interview:
The interview was controversial. But Ms. Jones repeated the foregoing sentiments and anecdotes in a follow-up interview with Slashfood the next day. Julie Powell and Julia Child never met; and apparently Mrs. Powell never even attempted reaching out to Ms. Child while writing the blog. Julia Child did not like Julie Powell, and wouldn’t have wanted to meet her anyway. Critics were not impressed with Powell’s book either.
The 2009 film “Julie and Julia” is an adaptation of both Powell’s book and Child’s 2006 posthumously-published autobiography My Life in France. Meryl Streep played Julia Child, while Amy Adams played Julia Powell.
The film was written and directed by Nora Ephron, of “When Harry Met Sally” and “Sleepless in Seattle” fame. “Julie and Julia” was a box office success, grossing nearly $130 million, more than three times its production budget. Streep was nominated for an Academy Award (Best Actress) for her role in the film.
Julie Powell published her second book, Cleaving: a Story of Marriage, Meat, and Obsession, in 2009. Critics, again, did not like it because Powell glorified her extramarital affairs and treating her husband like crap. She particularly talked a lot about the sex with her lover in the book. Her husband, Mr. Eric Powell, ended up having an affair himself, apparently just to get even. The couple married in 1998 and remained married until Mrs. Powell’s death.
From cheating, foul-mouth wife to vile mask and vaxx zealot
Mrs. Powell received her second Pfizer mRNA injection in May 2021.
She seemed to have no ill-effects from the first two injections. Mrs. Powell received a booster shot on December 24, 2021.
She reported pain throughout her body on June 10, 2022.
Mrs. Powell then reported a rash on July 12.
At this point, she started taking her deteriorating health out on the non-vaccinated, calling them untrustworthy, lunatics and assholes, on July 14.
