Summary

When Digital Writer Julia Emmanuele isn’t covering all things entertainment for Us Weekly, she can be found marathoning true crime documentaries, reading into the early hours of the morning or cooking her way through her expansive cookbook collection. An unabashed TV fanatic, Julia has seen every single episode of Bob’s Burgers, Letterkenny, RuPaul’s Drag Race and New Girl and will happily tell you all about her British television obsession, Taskmaster, when given the chance.

A recent DC transplant, she loves seeing her favorite bands at clubs around the city and is on a mission to find the best dumplings the DMV area has to offer. Julia has a love for 2000s-era celebrity gossip and once had her eyebrows done by a celebrity makeup artist.
